But how do they stack up?

The post Ten Actors Who Followed in Their Famous Parents’ Footsteps: The Good, The Bad & The Wackness appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Ask nearly the entire damn cast of HBO’s Girls: There’s no nepotism quite like Hollywood nepotism. It’s why we see too many weak-sauce children of respected Hollywood celebs fumble and bumble their way through careers in attempts to grab the respect of their established parents.

Sometimes it works; in rare cases, the scion is even better at it than the parent. All too often though, Hollywood heirs are the equivalent of that pain-in-the-ass 21 year old who’s running the produce section of his dad’s grocery store into the ground just because he can. Here are 10 descendants of actors who have their own acting careers — with very mixed results.

1. Eva Amurri

Parent: Susan Sarandon

The smokin’ hot daughter of one of Hollywood’s most beloved actresses hasn’t done a whole lot in her adult acting career that doesn’t involve, well, being snokin’ hot. My personal favorite role of Amurri’s — for completely legitimate reasons not involving her naked tatters is the stripper student vying for Hank Moody’s affections in season 3 of Showtime’s Californication. Her Wikipedia filmography has her credited in a couple dozen projects; if you can name more than three of them without looking, I’d be surprised. Verdict: Pretty wack, all things considered

2. Colin Hanks

Parent: Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks’ oldest son, who Tom had in his very early 20s, has earned decent indie cred starting with 2002′s Orange County. But he’s never managed to nab any other leading roles like his old man; perhaps his most noteworthy role was as the season 6 big baddie in the by-then-declining Showtime show Dexter, though he also handled himself well earlier this year as a meek police officer trying to take down Billy Bob Thornton in FX’s Fargo. There’s nothing outwardly offensive or untalented about Colin, but he’ll always be the Michael Jordan Jr. to his dad. Verdict: Not too shabby

3. Jamie Lee Curtis

Parent: Janet Leigh

I’ll try not to write with too much bias, considering Curtis was one of my earliest film crushes and is the protagonist in my favorite horror film of all time (1978′s Halloween). Objectively speaking, however, Curtis is a very average actress at first following in the Scream Queen footsteps of her Psycho alumna mother before branching off into beloved ’80s fare, including 1983′s Trading Places (her first topless scene) and 1988′s A Fish Called Wanda, which earned her her first Golden Globe nomination (she brought the award home for 1994′s True Lies). All said, I’m sure Marion Crane would be proud of Laurie Strode. Verdict: Decent…and wouldja just LOOK AT THAT BOD?!?!?

4. Kate Hudson

Parent: Goldie Hawn

Kate Hudson had precisely one memorable film role: Penny Lane in Cameron Crowe‘s 2000 semi-autobiographical Almost Famous. Everything after that has been has been a clusterf*** of romantic comedies whose plots are all interchangeable and a few episodes of Glee. She’s not an insufferable actress to watch per se, but no one on Earth will ever say, “Wow, that Kate Hudson performance was truly memorable!” She’s known more these days for being in a bikini than being a meaningful actress. In other words, she’s a chip off the ol’ block. Verdict: Meh

5. Kiefer Sutherland

Parents: Donald Sutherland and Shirley Douglas

Ol’ Kiefer is easily one of the scariest actors of all time: When I was a child, he put the fear of Black Jesus in my heart as Ace Merrill in 1987′s Stand By Me and again in the following year’s horror fantasy classic The Lost Boys. He’s had a robust career over the past three decades, often playing the brooding bad guy or the brooding good guy or the brooding unseen narrator, that gravelly timbre getting under your skin. It wasn’t until 24 that he became synonymous with Jack Bauer and going whole days without taking a piss. Before 24, Kiefer was on the verge of becoming like Papa Donald: one of those old actors everyone knows but sorta forgets about until someone brings them up. Verdict: Bauerlicious 

Follow us to the next page for five actors who completely outshined their famous parents — although we can’t really explain why.

While this trailer for Machete Kills lacks the blood, guts, and innards-bungee jumping of the original, it does feature Charlie Sheen as President of the United States and Sofia Vergara with machine gun breasts. So what I’m saying is Robert Rodriguez has grown as an artist.

“Somethingsomethingsomething cocaine trainwreck.”

News broke recently that Charlie Sheen helped Lindsay Lohan with a tax bill by giving her $100k. Since it’s become common knowledge that Charlie Sheen doesn’t give money to women without expecting something sleazy in return, it’s finally time for Lindsay Lohan to pay the piper with an appearance on Sheen’s FX series Anger Management. Ugh. It might be more palatable just to pay off the debt with sex like all the others do.

The two “characters” will meet in therapy and kick off a romance (that will apparently last one episode).

Such is the state of Lindsay Lohan’s career that she’s only available to find work in forms of self-parody and Greco-Roman clusterfucks of films like The Canyons. I guess it beats the macabre alternatives.

In a movie, you guys. They’re not actually sleeping together… yet.

When these two slime monsters do agree to squirt their fluids inside one another, the gossip machine will cave in on itself and the E! reporters will have brain overloads that cause them to forget the word ‘Kardashian’. So, there is a silver lining. But, as of today, their genitals adhering to one another like Velcro before raising the Nightmare City of R’lyeh has yet to occur.

So we can rest assured, the Scary Movie franchise is the only place a union so unholy can happen. But also, shame on you Scary Movie franchise. You’ve been helping terrible people be terrible for too long. Praise the Lord that Leslie Nielsen and his fart machine aren’t around to see this.

After exceeding the minimum ratings threshold that kicked in an automatic renewal, Anger Management, a show in which Charlie Sheen plays pretty much his Two and a Half Men character, only sans bowling shirts, has been picked up for a few more episodes.

90 episodes. Which means that it’s already guaranteed to hit the 100-episode milestone required for wide, painful syndication.

Yay?

To the “credit” of the show, and FX, it has quickly become the highest-rated sitcom on cable, surpassing like Workaholics, Always Sunny, Wilfred, and three others, so it’s probably performing as well as cable will allow it to. Still, it’s a Charlie Sheen TV adaptation of an Adam Sandler film.

Strange times, readers. Strange times.

In case you forgot what Charlie Sheen is like in real life, Anger Management is giving you a little something something to remind you. But don’t take it too literally, because I don’t think he ACTUALLY has a Masters degree, but only because it’s not possible to major in “Pussy and Coke,” though maybe he could some sort of out-of-class tutorial.

Also let this clip remind you that Selma Blair is aging like a Chateau Latour, and will reach epic heights of beauty somewhere around her 40th birthday.

Charlie Sheen, thinking that weekly calls into TMZ count as psychological treatment, dialed up the gossip site and decided to let people know how he really felt about Two and a Half Men.

He doesn’t like it. In fact, what he said was, ”I’m tired of lying. I’m tired of pretending like the show doesn’t suck. I’m tired of pretending like Ashton [Kutcher] doesn’t suck.”

We all are, Charlie. We all are.

He then kept going.

“I’m tired of pretending like they’re not competely adrift,” he added. “Because when you take away the anchor from your show, which they stupidly did, you go adrift. And these guys are approaching like salvage vessel.”

So it “sucks,” but if that’s not artful enough for you, the show is also “approaching like salvage vessel.” And you can tell he’s serious because he’s not using any articles in that latter description. I’m not sure what you do when Charlie Sheen is calling you “adrift,” but it’s probably high time for some serious introspection when that bell is rung.

2011 was another great year for Internet memes. Anonymous contributors came together to create some of the weirdest and wittiest images that the mind can conjure. Along the way, they re-appropriated images and videos of celebrities and famous characters to point out absurdities or to just be plain mean. We can endorse that.

It’s hard to believe that 2011 is almost over. It’s been a crazy year full of ups and downs, tears and laughter, and bizarre WTF moments. Sometimes we forget that celebrities are people too. And just like you or I, they have their own season’s greetings to send to friends, loved ones, and colleagues. Being the industry juggernaut that we are, Screen Junkies finds itself on several mailing lists of the rich and famous. We present to you just a few of the celebrity holiday cards that have been pouring in lately.

Charlie Sheen’s TV adaptation of the film Anger Management has been picked up by original programming powerhouse FX after the show had been pitched to virtually every player in cable TV. The order for ten episodes is expected to premiere in summer 2012.

This news comes as something of a surprising move considering FX‘s recent taste for more “thoughtful” fare, as Charlie Sheen, a TV adaptation of a film, and Anger Management don’t really scream “highbrow.” I’m not inclined to prejudge, but I’m wondering how much the public’s fascination with all things Sheen played into the demand for the show. The show has been a project of Sheen’s since the CBS Unpleasantness of Last Spring, and he’s embedded in the project as both the star and executive producer.

If the ten episodes ordered meet certain ratings criteria, then FX will pick up the show for an additional 90 episodes. Considering many people will check in on the initial episodes just to see what Sheen is up to, there’s a decent chance he’s struck a deal that will keep him in our lives for a while.

He’s back, ladies and gentlemen. While it seemed like he was handling the newest incarnation of Two and a Half Men gracefully, we all knew that wouldn’t last. In an exclusive interview with some photographer on the street yesterday, Charlie Sheen conveyed that he was “extremely disappointed” with the way that the show was “handling what (he) left behind.” Presumably “what he left behind was a trail of vitriol and gibberish, but the important thing is that the show just isn’t being respectful of that.

Following the comments to the photographer, Charlie Sheen crossed his arms over his chest, tucked into a blur spin, then flew off the planet.

It’s hard to know what Sheen is most critical about without watching the program, which is something that I’m just not going to do. Maybe it was Ashton Kutcher‘s floppy hair. That sure bugs me a lot, and sometimes I find it disrespectful to my legacy.

This statement is indicative of just another wild 180 that we have grown to love from the crack-smoking, hooker-banging former star of the show. Following the season premiere of Two and a Half Men starring Ashton Kutcher in his stead, Sheen claimed that he “loved,” the show, but seems to have changed his mind. What changed since the first episode? If you know, please post in the comments, but know that you will be outed as a Two and a Half Men-watcher.

The post The 9 Harshest Jokes From Comedy Central’s ‘Roast Of Charlie Sheen’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Amy Schumer sparked controversy with her Ryan Dunn joke on last night’s airing of  The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen. She addressed Dunn’s fellow stuntman and friend Steve O saying, “When Ryan Dunn died Steve-O probably was thinking it could’ve been him, with the rest of the world wondering why it wasn’t.”

Really? That started controversy? It wasn’t directed at Dunn and it wasn’t particularly that harsh. In fact, I made a similiar joke when I wrote Dunn’s obituary. Also, it’s a roast. That’s the point. It’s supposed to be gloves-off pot shots. If we were interested in watching famous people fart out watered-down yuck-yucks, we’d have watched Two and a Half Men instead.

Point being, the joke wasn’t over the line. It was more observational than it was malicious as it was the common reaction to the news of Dunn’s passing. Here are nine jokes that were much more harsh from The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen.

  • “You’re just like Bruce Willis — you were big in the 80s and now your old slot is being filled by Ashton Kutcher.” — Amy Schumer
  • “The only reason you got on TV in the first place is because God hates Michael J. Fox.” — Anthony Jeselnik
  • “Brooke Mueller is not very bright unless Charlie throws a lamp at her. … Mike Tyson, your opponents spent more time bleeding in the corner than Charlie’s ex wives.” — Jeffrey Ross
  • “Charlie, you claim to have ‘tiger blood,’ but after all the porn stars you’ve [had sex with], it’s probably Tiger Woods’ blood.” — Seth MacFarlane
  • “If you’re winning, this must not be a child custody hearing. The only time your kids get to see you is in reruns — don’t you want to live to see their first 12 steps?” — Jeffrey Ross
  • “Charlie still hasn’t hit rock bottom. He’s looking forward to it though, because he thinks there’s a rock there.” — Steve O
  • “Charlie Sheen is still alive! Charlie, you were amazing in Platoon. Your marriage to Denise [Richards] was kind of like her Vietnam because she was constantly afraid of being killed by Charlie … There’s no denying how famous you are. It was international news when you ruined the lives of those two girls living with you—you know, your daughters.” – Amy Schumer
  • “Mike Tyson, your opponents spent less time bleeding in the corner than Charlie’s ex-wives.” — Jeffrey Ross
  • “Charlie Sheen called his boss on Two and a Half Men a ‘Jew ki**’ and expected to go back to work. That’s crazy. If you could do that and keep your job, then everybody would do it.” — Anthony Jeselnik

According to a source that may or may not be Charlie Sheen himself, the controversial former actor/current punchline/mentally unstable individual Charlie Sheen may be appearing at tomorrow night’s Primetime Emmy Awards as a presenter.

This has been described as a “dream get” for the awards show, presumably because of the controversy surrounding Sheen, who also has a lot of buzz surrounding him due to the upcoming Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen. In order to promote that program, he’s been appearing all over TV lately on The Tonight Show, Today, and shows that are on at other times of the day.

This isn’t set in stone yet, but it’s probably a safe bet that Sheen will be somewhere to be seen (rhyme acknowledged) at the awards show telecast. Maybe it’ll be like Where’s Waldo, but with a mentally ill drug addict. (Deadline)

Since a big budget film probably couldn’t get an insurance policy on the guy to save its life, Charlie Sheen’s first project after Two and a Half Men will be a starring role in the indie flick A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charlie Banks III opposite Jason Schwartzman. The film will follow Sheen as the titular Banks, as a “successful graphic designer” (clearly fiction) who is ultimately done in by his charm with the ladies.

I’m guessing that Charlie Banks doesn’t need to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on hookers, then.

The Chuck Lorre-figure on this production will presumably by director Roman Coppola, who will take on this project as his feature debut. We at Screen Junkies wish Roman the best of luck in forging ahead after this horrible, horrible casting decision.

We were all hoping that Sheen would sign on for a David O. Russell project that would culminate in a microcosmic World War II between actor and director, but Sheen will have to learn to crawl before he can walk. (Variety)

The post 9 Most Famous Sitcom Character Deaths appeared first on Screen Junkies.

As you probably know, TMZ is reporting that the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men will be killing off Charlie Sheen‘s character, Charlie Harper, in a very gruesome manner. Apparently, the character’s death is being called a “meat explosion” resulting from being pushed in front of a Paris‘ subway train by his longtime stalker Rose. While the sitcom death may be one of the more inventive ways in which a character has been eliminated, it is far from the first. Here are nine more famous sitcom character deaths.

Paul Hennessy – 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter

When actor John Ritter died of a congenital heart defect while on the set of 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter, producers scrambled to salvage the series. As a result, they killed of his character in a similar manner to the actor’s death, and brought David Spade and James Garner as two new characters. Unfortunately, the show was never able to bounce back after the loss.

On a side note, I’m not sure what’s sadder: Ritter’s death, or the fact that someone made this tribute video.

Chico Rodriguez – Chico and the Man

Despite the fact that it was a hit show, you’ve probably never heard of Chico and the Man. That’s because actor Freddie Prinze (Chico) killed himself at the height of the show’s popularity. The show continued on, with producers bringing in a 12-year old replacement, and explaining that the Chico character had moved in with his father in Mexico. Eventually, it was revealed that the character was actually dead, but no explanation was given as to how he had died. Luckily, by the time the character’s death was acknowledged, no one was watching anyway.

Valerie Hogan – Valerie

Just because your name is in the title of a show does not mean you can’t be replaced. Just ask Valerie Harper, who was fired from her own show after “creative differences” arose. The show was then renamed Valerie’s Family, and later The Hogan Family. But despite the multiple name changes, one thing it was never called was “good television.”

Coach – Cheers

When actor Nicholas Colasanto died of heart problems during the third season of Cheers, producers took the Chico and the Man route, explaining away Coach’s absence rather than confronting it head on. But by the forth season, they could no longer ignore the elephant in the room. Coach’s death became part of the plot, as did the addition of his replacement, Woody, who went on to become one of the show’s most popular characters.

Edith Bunker – Archie Bunker’s Place

When All in the Family morphed into a show called Archie Bunker’s Place, actress Jean Stapleton’s character, Edith, became less and less involved. Rather than take a backseat to her costars, she decided to leave the show. Soon after, producers killed the character off with a stroke, the result of which is one of the most depressing moments in sitcom history. Unless your sitcom is named Louie, depressing really isn’t an adjective you want people to use when describing your show.

Dan Conner – Roseanne

Dan Conner’s death via heart attack wasn’t acknowledged until the final episode of the show, which means a lot of people probably don’t even know he was killed off. After all, because the final season was such a bizarre train wreck involving lottery winnings and fantasy scenarios, most people had already stopped watching.

Bill McNeal – NewsRadio

When actor Phil Hartman was shot and killed by his wife, producers were forced to kill off his NewsRadio character, a.k.a. Bill McNeal, with a heart attack. A heart attack isn’t very inventive, but the whole murder-suicide route probably wouldn’t have gone over too well. Hartman was replaced by his close friend Jon Lovitz, but the show was never able to recover.

Henry Blake – M*A*S*H

Of all the deaths on this list, Henry Blake’s may be the most famous. After actor McLean Stevenson decided to leave the show to pursue a lead role on his own sitcom, M*A*S*H writers decided to kill off his character rather than simply write him off the show. Luckily, a show that revolves around the Korean War allows for that sort of thing, and Henry Blake was killed in a plane crash over the Sea of Japan, a twist that caught both the audience and the show’s cast by surprise.

Susan Ross – Seinfeld

In perhaps the greatest sitcom death of all time, Susan Ross (Heidi Swedberg) died after licking hundreds of cheap-toxic envelopes purchased by her fiancé George Costanza. The bizarre death was one of the darkest comedic moments in the history of network TV, and was only heightened by the fact that Costanza seemed more relieved than saddened by his partner’s death.

The producers of Two and a Half Men could have had a field day with their opportunity to kill off the insolent Charlie Sheen’s character on the upcoming season. However, in keeping with Two and a Half Men tradition, they managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory by having Sheen meet his end by the hand of some stalker named Rose.

TMZ reports that Charlie’s character, “Charlie,” will be pushed off a subway platform in Paris by Rose, who he married in Paris offscreen. So rather than do something crazy, ridiculous, and spiteful, which we all wanted, they went in a direction that actually ties to some other plot points, which is disappointing, but not necessarily a surprise. I don’t know who Rose is, and I don’t want to know. I mean, I like her because she killed off a Two and a Half Men character, but he was the only interesting one.

So I forfeit the $10 I had in the Charlie Harper death pool, with $5 on “getting stuck to death while allergic to bees like Macauley Culkin in My Girl” and “decapitated by Jon Cryer in CGI cage match.” I could have used that money, too.

Lisa Lampenelli should be advised to save the date of September 10th to insult the shit out of Charlie Sheen. Comedy Central has announced that Sheen will be made the subject of fun for their next celebrity roast.

Comedy Central has secured one of Hollywood’s most notorious bad boys. The network announced today that Charlie Sheen will be the next Roastee. The “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of Charlie Sheen” (#SheenRoast) will tape in Los Angeles on Saturday, September 10. The Roast will premiere on COMEDY CENTRAL on Monday, September 19 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

“You could say I’ve been providing kindling for this Roast for a while,” said Sheen. “It’s time to light it up. It’s going to be epic.”

I really hope that there are no hard feelings between Comedy Central and Norm MacDonald and he’s invited to roast. The man really knows his way around a dead hooker joke.

In a move that can best be described as “predictable,” Two and a Half Men creator has decided to kill off Charlie Sheen’s not-so-fictional character Charlie Harper for the next season of the CBS sitcom.

TMZ reports that those someone close to the show (they should really just admit it’s Jon Cryer) has divulged that Sheen’s character will die early in the next season, making way for Ashton Kutcher‘s character to slide right into the show’s vacant bowling shirts and cargo pants.

The million-dollar questions that remains, however, is how Charlie “Harper” will meet his maker. It’s a safe bet that it won’t be a dignified end, based on the acrimony that resulted from Sheen’s unexpected (sort of) booting late last season. My guess is a David Carradine-type shuffling of the mortal coil, but let’s not rule out a Vespa accident or SuperHerpes.

So... give us your money?

The post Kimmel Jokingly Apologizes For ABC At The Upfronts appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
I haven’t forgotten that Jimmy Kimmel continues to host a late night talk show on ABC, but it’s just not something I think about that much. He’s not consistently on my radar, like Conan O’Brien, but he’s also not at Carson Daly levels of forgotten-ness.

Anyway, the former “Man Show” host had some choice joke-words for advertisers attending this year’s ABC upfronts. Here are some highlights. We’ll start with Kimmel roasting his own network. Hopefully, a little self-deprecating humor will cover all those shitty programming mistakes nicely.

“Remember those shows that we were so excited about last fall? We cancelled all of them. And yet here you are again. I think you might have a gambling problem.”

“You [advertisers] come here and we shower you with promises and never really follow through on any of them. If this was a show, we’d call it ‘The Bachelor.’ We tell you we love you; we give you a rose; we canoodle with you in a hot tub and then two and a half months down the line, you realize we’re gay.”

“We’re excited about all of our shows. Except ‘Shark Tank’. We have no idea how that got back on the schedule. You know what someone should invent on ‘Shark Tank’? A replacement for ‘Shark Tank’.”

Now onto the other networks…

“I have to say, I think ['The X-Factor'] is the best idea of 2002. It’s like ‘American Idol‘ meets a mirror.”

“NBC thanked God for ‘The Voice’… God has nothing to do with what’s going on at NBC. God stopped watching NBC after ‘Friends’. And God isn’t in the demo anyway.”

“CBS announced a plan to move forward and retool the show, and sure enough they found another tool, Ashton Kutcher. He happens to be a pretty solid choice. He’s popular, he’s handsome, he’s talented and he has experience. Remember, he did a very good job replacing Bruce Willis.”

And there you go. The message is: we suck, but they suck too. So… give us your money? (Hollywood Reporter)

UPDATE: CBS has officially announced that Ashton Kutcher will be joining the “Two and a Half Men” family. It’s almost like Charlie Sheen never existed.

Good news: Charlie Sheen has something to talk about again. *Wipes Brow*

CBS and Warner Bros are in the final stages of their deal to replace Sheen’s character on “Two and a Half Men” with… Ashton Kutcher. This makes some logical sense, as they’re both on-screen douches and Kutcher is experienced in the multicamera sitcom world. My sources tell me he will also build a Scrooge McDuck style swimming vault for all the money they’re giving him.

Hugh Grant passed on the gig, and despite publicly saying he’s not interested, John Stamos has been waiting by the phone this entire time. Showrunner Chuck Lorre is supposedly happy with the selection, and now Sheen will have someone else to call a “troll” for awhile. Let the inevitable Twitter battle begin. (Hollywood Reporter)

The post Hugh Grant Walks Away From ‘Two And A Half Men’ Talks, Mumbles Affably appeared first on Screen Junkies.

The next closest thing to Charlie Sheen is Hugh Grant. I had no idea.

Producers for “Two and a Half Men” were in deep talks with Grant to replace Sheen on the show, until he bowed out at the 11th hour, citing those time-tested “creative differences,” despite a rumored payday of $1 million per episode. Perhaps he was about to ink the contract when he asked offhand, “Do you mind if I see a script real quick?” After thumbing through the script, he then threw it on the conference and bellowed to the executives, “Awwww hellllllll no!” Or maybe he got his fill of working with awkward fat kids in About a Boy.

He then stormed out of the room, leaving Jon Cryer sitting outside, eagerly holding a cake that read “Welcome to CBS, Mr. Grant!!!”

Regardless of how it went down, Grant’s exit from negotiations leaves CBS without a bankable A-list replacement before upfronts next week. They still haven’t tapped other noted hooker patron Eddie Murphy. (I’m just trying to be helpful.)(Deadline)

Warner Bros.’ lawyers have explicitly told Charlie Sheen what we already know: Charlie Sheen will not be rejoining the cast of “Two and a Half Men.” Not now. Not ever.

Apparently, not only was this not clear to Sheen, but he had been galavanting around Tinseltown telling everyone that he was “in discussions” to get his job back. Warner Bros. really wants everyone to know that is not the case.

Because they summed up their position so succinctly, I won’t do them the disservice of paraphrasing. Their exact words are:

“As you know, there have been no discussions, there are no discussions, and there will be no discussions, regarding his returning to or having any involvement in the series.”

So you’re telling me there’s a chance? (THR)

Not, yet, but sadly, it won't be that hard for them to claim the title.

Are Will and Jaden Smith the most successful father-son acting duo of all time? Not, yet, but sadly, it won’t be that hard for them to claim the title. If their latest collaboration with M. Night Shyamalan does well, they’ll already have two successful films under their belt, which is more than most father-son acting teams can say. And considering that Jaden is only four years old (estimated), odds are we will be forced to endure this family for years to come.

But with all the famous Hollywood families that are out there, surely someone must be giving the Smith’s a run for their money. Not really. Take a look for yourself.

Peter and Henry Fonda

Jane and Henry Fonda starred in On Golden Pond, a film that has gone down as a classic. But what about Peter and Henry? Well, they both starred in Wanda Nevada (and by starred, I mean Henry had a bit part). Ever heard of it? I thought not.

Jake and Gary Busey

Gary Busey is the greatest actor of his, or any, generation. And Jake Busey is the greatest actor who also happens to be Gary Busey’s son. Together, they’d make at unstoppable on-screen pair. Unfortunately, they haven’t done much, other than Straight Time, co-starring Dustin Hoffman and Kathy Bates. Jesus, look at Jake’s head in that picture. Are motorcycle-accident injuries hereditary?

Scott and James Caan

James Caan was in The Godfather. What else do I have to say? His son Scott was in Ocean’s 11, which is what it is. Together, they were in Mercy. I’m not saying it’s a bad film, mainly because I’ll never know. At any rate, I think Will and Jaden are safe from this father-son pairing.

Adam and Alan Arkin

Alan Arkin won an Oscar for his role in Little Miss Sunshine. Somehow, he wasn’t even nominated for his role in Full Moon High, which co-starred his son Adam as a teenager who turns into a werewolf. No, this isn’t Teen Wolf, but it did come out first, which leads me to beleive that Michael J. Fox probably isn’t too popular at the Arkin household.

Cameron, Michael and Kirk Douglas

Michael, Kirk, and Cameron Douglas all starred together in the film, It Runs in the Family. It was so awful that Cameron was sent to prison for his involvement. It’s true. Look it up.

Jeff, Beau, and Llyod Bridges

Jeff and Llyod Bridges actually co-starred in some respectable films, including Tucker. Beau and Lloyd were both in the film Daddy, which, based on the title alone, I’m going to say is horrible. Unfortunately, now that Lloyd is dead, they don’t have a chance against the Smiths.

Ben and Jerry Stiller

It might not have made as much money as a Will Smith film, but at least the Stillers can hold their heads up high for the comedy, Zoolander. Not too high, though. It’s still a pretty stupid movie.

Keifer and Donald Sutherland

Does the name Max Dugan mean anything to you? I’m guessing not, which doesn’t bode well for Keifer and Donald Sutherland. It was Keifer’s first film, and Donald’s 347th (estimated). The two later co-starred in A Time to Kill, which isn’t horrible. Maybe if they throw Donald a bone and cast him in the rumored 24 film we can get something going.

Emilio Estevez, Charlie and Martin Sheen

Last but not least, we have Martin Sheen to save the day. Yes, he was in Emilo’s film, Bobby, and the two also co-starred in The Way. But luckily, both Charlie and Martin were in Wall Street, an Oscar winning classic. Something tells me M. Night’s next film isn’t going to take home any statues. Suck on it, Smiths!

Wow. Charlie Sheen will take literally any job just as long as it doesn’t involve Chuck Lorre.

Sheen will appear on the April 12th episode of “Drew Carey’s Improv-A-Ganza.” The performance is billed as “an impromptu appearance” because that’s what Sheen does nowadays. He’s become the ultimate walk-on. He’s done “Kimmel Live” and now this. Soon he’ll sneak up behind Bill Hader on “SNL” while he’s imitating the star. Hader will act really surprised. Then they will kiss on the mouth. Then awkwardly avoid one another at the wrap party.

What’s most interesting is that Sheen taped this appearance in Las Vegas about a week or so before the meltdown that got him fired from “Two and a Half Men.” You may be over Sheen and flag this as non-news but I think it’s worth checking out. The chance of seeing a coked-up Sheen play Zip Zap Zop is too intriguing to pass up.

Other performers featured on the show are Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, and Greg Proops, all regular performers on Carey’s “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” Incidentally, that phrase gets bandied about Sheen’s Sober Valley Lodge at least sixteen times a day. (Deadline)

Duh, Winning. Tiger Blood. F-18. Something about Adonis DNA…

Are we good? Okay, great. So, Charlie Sheen is going on tour. When the “Charlie Sheen‘s: Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option” was announced, he was only scheduled to make just 2 stops, which is the lamest amount of stops to qualify as a “tour.”

Now the Insanity Express is starting to shape up. Sheen and his extremely frustrated lawyers have added 12 new stops across the US and Canada. I posted the list below. God knows what you’ll be seeing, hearing or forced to experience at a Charlie Sheen one-man show. I think the expectations for craziness are so high that he’s got to go the other way at this point and give a somber, well-reasoned argument for his side of the “Two and a Half Men“-ocalypse. But the odds of anything rational sounding coming out of Sheen’s Traveling Korner are minimal at best.

However, at the end of the day, he’s taking crazy all the way to the crazy bank, making $300,000 for just the first two sold out performances in Detroit and Chicago. (Hollywood Reporter)

He used to appear in your living room via the television box program “Two and a Half Men.” Then he went to rehab, pissed off his bosses and colleagues, said a lot of crazy stuff, and ultimately got fired. Now Charlie Sheen‘s turning all of America into “Sheen’s Korner” with his new one man show. Actually, not all of America. So far, there are only two stops for his “tour”: Detroit on April 2nd, then Chicago on April 3rd. However, once these theaters get visits from the police, a bunch of other places are surely gonna wanna book the performance.

The show is called “Charlie Sheen LIVE: My Violent Torpedo of Truth.” I assume the tour is sponsored by Tiger Blood. Here’s an official description:

“Will there be mayhem? Will you ask questions? Will you laugh? Will you scream? Will you know the truth?”

Uh… will I?

I guess the whole ousted-TV-star-turned-road-warrior thing worked for Conan O’Brien, but at least with Conan‘s live show I had some idea of what to expect. For all you know, a $35 ticket will buy you an evening of Sheen screaming the word “trolls” at you and your girlfriend. Of course, on the other hand, I’ve had worse dates. (CNN, Ticketmaster)

He's got his own money, thank you. Money he earned through hard work, good hygiene, and laughing at Dave Coulier's jokes.

John Stamos does not wish to be the highest paid actor on television. He’s got his own money, thank you. Money he earned through hard work, good hygiene, and laughing at Dave Coulier’s jokes.

Early reports were that Chuck Lorre wanted this handsome S.O.B. to take over for Charlie Sheen after he went nuclear and got fired from “Two and a Half Men.” Stamos had the chance to speak out in dulcet, mercy-requesting tones earlier today.

“I don’t want to replace anyone, especially Charlie Sheen. It’s just not where my head is at.”

“Nobody has officially talked to me and, quite frankly, as flattering as it is, it’s really not part of my career plan right now. I’m just on a different trajectory.”

“Charlie is great on that show and people love Charlie on that show and people love the way the show is,” he said. “So, in the big scheme of things, apparently there’s a lawsuit going on, so I don’t know, but I hope it works out and I hope he goes back and people get the show that they love.”

So both Rob Lowe and now Stamos have decided not to be Jon Cryer‘s handsome foil. Seems like nobody wants to step into Sheen’s shoes. Which is probably a good choice. No telling what foot diseases that madman has picked up at all those kissing parties. (E!)

This could be the biggest Charlie Sheen news since whatever the Charlie Sheen news was a couple minutes ago.

The LAPD were at Charlie Sheen’s house tonight. Wow, I’m as shocked as you are about that, and I’m assuming you’re not shocked in the slightest. Oh, and no, they weren’t there for the tiger blood.

An anonymous source inside the Sheen house, who I’ll call “Deep Throat” because it’s quite possibly a porn star, told TMZ (natch) the police were poking around. This has been confirmed. Apparently they got a call that he was threatening himself earlier today with a firearm. Ho boy. Having weapons in his home would violate the restraining order with his ex-wife Brooke Mueller. However, the police ended their search, so I guess they didn’t find any bazookas.

Sheen quickly put a happy/psychotic face on the situation via Twitter:

“#fastball; the LAPD were AWESOME. Absolute pros! they can protect and serve this Warlock anytime!!! c”

What a mixed bag for the LAPD. Someone gave them a public compliment, but it’s Charlie Sheen. (TMZ)

Here's Cryer's video confession.

If you’ve ever watched “Two and a Half Men” and thought you saw some long pink hairs popping out of Jon Cryer‘s head, now you know there was nothing wrong with your TV set. Except for the fact that you were watching “Two and a Half Men.”

Jon Cryer told Conan O’Brien on a new “Conan” that, like Charlie Sheen said/blurted/gibberished, he really is a troll. Of course, in a later interview, Sheen quasi-took back the insult, but now it’s time for Cryer to come clean:

“The truth is that there’s not a lot of tolerance for people like me, especially in Hollywood,” he quipped. “To avoid ignorance and bullying, I’ve had to hide the fact that I’m a troll. You have no idea how much time and money I’ve spent on electrolysis and hair dye and reconstructive surgery so I can look like this [pointing to himself], instead of this,” he said as a image of a Cryer with pink Troll doll hair and eyes flashed on the screen.

So Cryer finally admitted he was gay. Good for him. Oh wait, he said “troll” and it’s all just a talk show goofaround? Nevermind…

You can watch a clip above. For more, there’s a longer version at Hollywood Reporter.
