Lebron James Officially Joins New Comedy Film!

We just discovered that NBA superstar LeBron James looks like he is going to end up in a comedy film!

As we reported several months ago, it now seems that the new film titled Fantasy Basketball Camp, from Universal-Imagine (which is a new sports comedy to which James is attached), has even bigger news as it finally landed a director in Malcolm D. Lee (of The Best Man, Soul Men, Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins fame). Also, writer Peter Steinfeld has come aboard to write the new draft which we heard needed it. What’s even bigger news is the film was picked up to be produced by Brian Grazer.

The film Fantasy Basketball Camp centers on five men who come to Las Vegas to live out their fantasy by attending the LeBron James Adult Basketball Camp only to end up dragging James into their various life issues.

No word yet on who else will be joining the cast but we hear that calls are being placed to actors and some offers went out recently- but we can’t say to who-yet. Stay tuned to more info on this soon!

As we reported last issue as an exclusive interview with Deon Cole, Cole became one of the only African American writers of the Tonite Show when O'Brien took over the reins of the show.

As we all know by now, the show has shifted back to comedian Jay Leno and Conan was let go of his duties as the host, but word has leaked to numerous amount of outlets that Conan may jump back into late night talk with the FOX network.

EXCLUSIVE- The New Host Of 1st Amendment Is Sheryl Underwood!

As we reported several weeks ago, comedian Doug Williams, who is the co-creator and Executive Producer and former Host of the Martin Lawrence 1st Amendment Show on Starz, stepped aside as the Host of the show as it begins filming its fifth season.

At that same time, our sources disclosed that the show’s producers were thinking about replacing Williams with a new female host that would bring a different flavor to the show. Today we found out what that flavor is as our sources have told us that the NEW host of the show is comedian Sheryl Underwood!

Underwood, a former host of BET’s Comic View and current radio personality of the Tom Joyner Morning Show and The FOXXhole, is not unfamiliar to hosting and is expected to bring a different spin to the show.

Anyway, the Martin Lawrence 1st Amendment Show is one of the highest rated shows on the Starz Network and has been climbing in the ratings every year since its debut. No official word from the network of Underwood being named as the host, but we will let you know as soon as we find out!

Jamie Foxx Lands New Sketch Comedy Show At The FOX Network!

According to the Hollywood Reporter, we just discovered that Jamie Foxx has teamed up with comedic actor Affion Crockett for a new urban-flavored sketch-comedy show, which will air on the FOX network.

FOX has ordered a pilot for an untitled project executive produced by Foxx and fellow "In Living Color" scribes, "MadTV" creators Fax Bahr and Adam Small, with "Wild 'N Out" alum Crockett attached.

According to the report, the pilot is the result of merging two projects. Foxx was looking to do a sketch-comedy series with an urban twist and paired with Bahr and Small to pitch the idea to Fox.

Separately, Sony TV-based Tantamount was working on a sketch-comedy project starring Crockett, probably best known for his spoofs of Russell Simmons, Kanye West, Chris Brown, Drake and Jay-Z. Crockett also was attached to co-write with Carl Jones, a producer on Sony's animated comedy "The Boondocks," on which Jones voiced characters alongside Crockett and also served as a producer.

After hearing both pitches, Fox Entertainment president Kevin Reilly proposed marrying the projects.

The combination landed at FtvS, with Foxx executive producing alongside Small, Bahr, Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum as well as Marcus King and Jaime Rucker King, Foxx's managers and producing partners at Foxx King Entertainment.

Jones is co-executive producing, with Crockett a producer. Small, Bahr, Jones and Crockett are writing.
Foxx, who co-created, produced and toplined "The Jamie Foxx Show," had another sketch-comedy show with Bahr and Small in development last year at MTV.

Small and Bahr's series credits also include "Chocolate News" and "Blue Collar TV."

Tracy Morgan Replaces Terrance Howard In New Film!

Ok, we can admit, this one ALMOST slipped past us; we just discovered that comedian and very popular actor Tracy Morgan is having a year to remember; Morgan just joined actress Juliette Binoche and they both are in final negotiations to join the ensemble cop drama titled Son of No One, being directed by Dito Montiel.

The film so far also stars Channing Tatum, who plays a young cop assigned to a precinct in the working class neighborhood where he grew up, with an old secret surfacing and threatening to destroy his life and family. Another interesting thing we discovered is that we also hear that actors Al Pacino, Ray Liotta, and Katie Holmes are also in the cast.

What makes this even MORE intriguing is that Morgan is taking over this role that was vacated by actor Terrance Howard, as he will play Vinnie, a friend of Tatum's.No word yet on why Howard left the project, but rumors from the cast say that once again it was a dispute between Howard the the producers, almost as in Iron Man 2. Of course, we can't confirm or deny these reports.

We also hear that the film begins shooting in New York next week.

A Moment In Comedy History With... Reginald Hudlin!

Here is the first clip of a new series titled "A Moment In Comedy History With..." where we will examine major points in comedy history that the media didn't cover or something that may have been overlooked. This new series will look at what was overlooked or passed over.

Here is an interview with Director, writer, and producer Reginald Hudlin who was the original creator, writer and director (his brother Warrington was the film's Producer) of the House Party film.

In case you are unaware, Hudlin’s film House Party was originally a thesis for school he made while attending Harvard and the short thesis ended up as a feature film that was released in 1990.

The feature film ended up as an instant classis while also launching the careers of Kid & Play, Martin Lawrence, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Robin Harris, A J Johnson, Darryl “Chill” Mitchell, Full Force, and many others.

We got a chance to sit down with Hudlin to discuss the film (since it is the 20 year anniversary of the release of House Party) and we discovered lots of interesting things that occurred in the development of the film- especially how Will Smith almost landed in the film! Imagine that!

Check out the interview!

‘Laverne & Shirley’ Remake To Be Written By Jamie Foxx!

Word has started to spread about the new Jamie Foxx project because of a TV Guide report that the comedian, musician and actor is supposedly said to be writing a script for a big screen adaptation of TV’s Laverne & Shirley with the show’s co-creator, Garry Marshall.

We hear that it will be a different take, more of a modern day scenario on how they came up on the streets during difficult times. We hear that the Laverne character would be this very tough girl with a big ‘L’ tattooed on her arm.

Marshall is looking at Jennifer Garner for the role of Laverne and Jessica Biel for the part of Shirley. He directed both actresses as well as Foxx in romantic comedy Valentine’s Day.

If you remember the old series on ABC, Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams played the roles in the original series.

According to our sources Foxx did agree to write the script but is bogged down with several other projects from writing a new album, to several new films including writing the new film he writing with Martin Lawrence titled Sheneneh and Wanda from Screen Gems. So, we are not too sure about the time table of this project as it seems Foxx will be extremely busy for the next several years.

Is Miguel Nunez Jr. Set To Play Tiger Woods?!

Is this a coincidence or what? We heard that Spike TV ordered a single-camera pilot television project titled Back Nine, starring John Schneider (formerly of The Dukes of Hazzard fame) as Ronnie Barnes, a has-been former US Open champ who travels the US competing in small-time tournaments in hopes of qualifying for the PGA Tour.

What really makes this story interesting is that traveling with Ronnie is Tiger, his sex-addicted caddy and comedic actor Miguel Nunez is taking on the role.

Jason Filardi and Mark Perez are writing the project as well as direct the pilot and executive produce with John Lynch. Spike TV originally green lit the Back Nine script a year ago with the sex-addicted character named Tiger as part of the plot early on, obviously without having any indication of what was going to happen to the real Tiger Woods despite any of the rumors you may have heard.

Jamie Foxx To Play A Villain In His New Role!

Our sources today have disclosed to us that Jamie Foxx is about to sign on in another film, but this time is he going down the same path that Denzel Washington did as a villain named Alonzo in the film Training Day? Well, the simple answer is yes.

We have learned that Foxx is about to sign to play a villain in the new film titled Kane & Lynch: Dead Men which is another video game adapted film.

We hear that actor Bruce Willis has already signed on to the project as Kane, a death row inmate who is sprung from jail to recover a pinched fortune. It’s a task that he must complete along with a schizophrenic killer called Lynch, which is the role being offered to Foxx.

The difference of any other big screen adaption from a video game is that this film is bringing two well known actors as leading roles. Expectations are about to be pretty high for this action drama.

We also hear relatively unknown scribe Kyle Ward has written the script (he’s also signed on for Hitman 2), and no word has been set yet for a release date.

More Bad News Again For Katt Williams?!!

According to local reports out of Shreveport, LA., it looks like there is more bad news regarding Katt Williams.

We just discovered that the City of Shreveport, Louisiana and a group of local promoters planned on producing a show with Katt Williams titled The Katt Williams Experience this past weekend. But the show never happened.

According to several local news outlets and the promoters of the show, Katt Williams showed up to the event on Sunday morning, expecting to do a show that day after the original show on Friday was rescheduled because of Williams’ no show.

After officials first decided to move the rescheduled show to Saturday, the show was eventually cancelled because of lost communication between all of the parties involved; the promoters, the city officials and the Shreveport Convention Center.

What makes this story even worse is the City of Shreveport had a local bid for The Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC), (which is is a college athletic conference that would have bought millions to the local economy), but now the officials who were in town to see the show have decided that Shreveport will NOT be in the running for the SWAC conference (a bid that the City had to hold SWAC there) because of many factors, and this being one of the highlighted reasons.

Anyway, as of this writing the news outlets are reporting that Katt Williams is still in Shreveport waiting for the rescheduled show- which the promoters state is NOT happening.

Dating Film Titled Computer Love Turns Heads- Here's The Tralier!

We just discovered that a new independent film titled Computer Love is set to be released. Produced by a an award-winning collective of Philadelphia bred filmmakers and directed by city native and Temple University alumnus, Mike Pender, Computer Love tells the story of a heart-broken author’s (Kwe Reid) wild, and at times scary, foray into the world of internet dating. While looking for love and affection, Kwe encounters a motley crew of female companions and ends up finding a lot more than he had bargained for. The film was shot entirely on location in Philadelphia and stars emerging area actors Atif Lanier (Kwe), Lee Mekhai and Nicole L. Tucker.

Computer Love’s creators feel that the film’s subject matter is not only entertaining, but couldn’t be more timely. Pender says, “Because people are so busy these days, online dating isn’t just a trend anymore. Online Dating Magazine reported that more than 20 million Americans visit at least one online dating service once a month. Dating websites spent over $400 million dollars on advertising last year and there are millions of users on MySpace and Facebook every day, so I feel that our film is extremely relevant right now.”

Following the Philadelphia premiere, Computer Love will be showing at various theaters across the country and be featured at several major upcoming film festivals. It will also be available on DVD.

The Computer Love World Premiere is scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM On April 8, 2010, and tickets can be purchased for $10 in advance at www.ComputerLovetheMovie.com or at the door.

Gabourey Sidibe Joins Showtime Comedy Series!

We hear that Oscar® nominee actress Gabourey Sidibe will make her way from the mean streets of ‘80s Harlem in Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire to the cushy, modern-day Connecticut suburbs in the new Showtime dark comedy series, The Big C. Sidibe, who guest starred in the pilot episode, just signed on as a recurring guest star in the half-hour series, which is headlined by multiple award-winner Laura Linney as Cathy, a repressed suburban wife and mother who reclaims her life after a terminal cancer diagnosis. Oliver Platt (of 2012 fame) stars as her immature, but well-meaning husband. Sidibe will play a smart-alecky student in Cathy’s class.

The Big C, which will begin shooting 13 episodes in May for a late summer premiere, is created and written by Darlene Hunt, who will serve as executive producer, along with Linney, Neal H. Moritz and Vivian Cannon. Acclaimed writer/director/producer Bill Condon (of Dreamgirls fame) directed the pilot.

Tracy Morgan Cops Out To 2 New Films!

We just discovered from our source that comedian and actor Tracy Morgan is about to sign on another comedy film titled ID Theft, which is a comedy that casts him as a cash-strapped father who sees a shortcut out of his struggles when the credit card of a suburban dad lands in his lap.

The script is being written by Colin Jost and Rob Klein, from an original pitch by Kristofor Brown. Morgan has given his own notes to the screenwriters, and 3 Arts and American Work are producing.

But that’s not all for Morgan; we hear that Paramount Studios separately has Morgan set to star with actor TJ Miller in a new film titled Freshman Roommates, and we hear they are also making plans to line up ANOTHER film right after that for Morgan. No word yet on what that film will be.

As you know by now, Morgan is starring in the new buddy cop film titled Cop Out with Bruce Willis, in theaters now.

Brandon T. Jackson Joins Big Momma's House 3 And Wears Fat Suit!!!

We just discovered through our sources that up-and-coming comedic actor Brandon T Jackson (of Tropic Thunder, Tooth Fairy and Roll Bounce fame) has recently joined the cast of the new Martin Lawrence film Big Momma’s House 3.

We also discovered that Jackson will play Lawrence’s son in the film AND he will join his on-screen Dad by joining the case while ALSO wearing a fat suit. SO, expect to see Lawrence and Jackson wearing a fat suit, solving the case and maybe even kick starting the franchise to several more films as Jackson slides into more of a bigger role.

Big Momma’s House 3 is about to start filming in Atlanta in April.

Jackson is currently starring in the film Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, and he just wrapped filming Lottery Ticket with Mike Epps, Ice Cube and Bow Wow.
