CBS has proven that the elderly are powerless to resist the cathode glow of a crime procedural, but do they have the same effect on children? Nickelodeon hopes so. The network is now teaming with Scott Marshall and his dad Gary to develop a show about a child detective, his child District Attorney brother, the child judge they both have a crush on, a corrupt mayor who is a doody-butt, and a lady who runs the local “malt shoppe” who is “connected.” Let’s hope that she isn’t making those malts with ice cream that fell off the back of a truck. Because that’s a good way to get a serious case of diarrhea.

Compared to his work from the 70′s and 80′s, this concept doesn’t even rank on the Gary Marshall scale of crazy. (Deadline)

Let's pay tribute to Bon Jovi, the actor.

Close call yesterday, guys. Amidst the news of Kim Jong-il’s passing came bogus (thankfully) reports that New Jersey‘s fourth favorite son, Jon Bon Jovi, had also died. Rest assured he is alive and well and his hair looks fantastic. But we almost lost a true American artist, a man who has entertained for years with his contributions to the worlds of music, movies, television, and extreme football. We all know Bon Jovi, the international rock and roll superstar. But did you know he’s also a lawyer? And a college professor? And a recovering alcoholic? And a vampire hunter?? The man wears many faces… faces we’re glad aren’t decomposing.

So, raise a glass to JBJ. Without him, Young Guns wouldn’t have been nearly as awesome.

Jon Bon Jovi: THE ACTOR

Before you can celebrate the theatrical works of Jon Bon Jovi, you need to understand what brought him to the silver screen. You see, as this random British guy explains, Jon Bon Jovi always saw himself as a musician with no ambitions outside of that. Why should he become an actor? Then the whole Napster thing happened, and Bon Jovi eagerly jumped into a film career. They leave that last part out.

Cry_Wolf

Proving he’s not just good looks and amazing talent, Jon Bon Jovi effortlessly loses himself in the role of Mr. Walker, the attractive journalism professor. But is there more going on here? He’s been known to bed a female student or two, but is he also the campus’s crazed killer who is death-bedding them? I won’t spoil the outcome of this IMPORTANT FILM, but it probably goes without saying that this killer is wanted… dead or alive. The plot of Cry_Wolf is as twisty as a highway road that’s slippery when wet.

Pucked

Bon Jovi shows considerable range by playing a loser in National Lampoon’s Pucked. His character, Frank, is a former lawyer who can’t get his act together. When he receives a credit card in the mail, he quickly runs a bill of $300,000 by fulfilling his lifelong dream of creating an all woman’s hockey team. Then the evil credit card company, who can’t understand somebody just wanting to chase their dreams, takes Frank to court. With a little bit of support from a chubby version of Estella Warren, he finds the confidence he needs to defend himself and clear his debt. It also stars David Faustino.

A new trailer for New Year’s Eve has dropped. 8-)

In the spiritual sequel to Valentine’s Day, a bunch of model-hot people complain about how tough it is to find love and then find themselves in cliched, wacky situations that lead to them hooking up with other model-hot people. Except this time it happens a little earlier in winter.

Gary Marshall brings Ashton Kutcher and Jessica Biel back as new characters because these films take place in a world full of doppelgangers (they kinda play down the sci-fi angle in the marketing). In a ploy to make Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon far easier, he also cast the recognizable attractive faces of Josh Duhamel, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lea Michele, Hilary Swank, Ludacris, Jon Bon Jovi, Halle Berry, Sofia Vergara, Zac Efron, Michelle Pfeiffer, Robert De Niro, Til Schweiger, Seth Myers, Katherine Heigl, Sienna Miller, Ice Cube, John Lithgow, Carla Gugino, Julie Andrews and Abigail Breslin. That’s going to be one crowded poster.

Gary Marshall is throwing a bone to the beleaguered boyfriends who will be dragged to see New Year’s Eve. Jessica Biel will be returning for the follow-up non-sequel but won’t be reprising her Valentine’s Day role. That means the movies take place in a magical world where Jessica Biel has a twin, and good things happen to gorgeous people but only around major holidays.

Speaking of twins, Sofia Vergara has also joined the cast. There aren’t any specifics on which role she will play but let’s hope it involves a trampoline. If so, is it wrong if I go see it without my girlfriend? (THR)

Jamie Foxx Scripting ‘Laverne & Shirley’ Movie For Whatever Reason http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jamie-foxx-scripting-laverne-shirley-movie-for-whatever-reason/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jamie-foxx-scripting-laverne-shirley-movie-for-whatever-reason/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Gary Marshall's Valentine's Day featured some bizarre on-screen unions, and now is causing one off-screen as well. I don't know how to better describe this news item than with a shrill "Say WHAAAAAAATTTTTTT???!!!!!" Jamie Foxx is scripting a modernized adaptation of "Laverne & Shirley" as a vehicle for sisters-from-another-mister Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel. I wouldn't mind seeing that sexy pair schlemiel one another's schlimazels if you know what I'm sayin' (note: I don't know what I'm sayin').Marshall tells TV Guide:“Jamie and I are trying to do it. He’s writing it. It’s a whole different modern day take on how they came up on the streets during difficult times. Laverne would be this very tough girl with a big ‘L’ tattooed on her arm. Jennifer Garner would play Laverne and Jessica Biel would play Shirley.”This is just great. I've been working on the gangsta version of "227" for quite some time and now everyone will think I'm ripping off Jamie Foxx's stupid urban "Laverne & Shirley." Now the world will never see Macy Gray cut a bitch while dressed as Jackée.
