There is a touch of drama, a sprinkling of comedy and definitely a lot of action which makes it a very entertaining show.  The program features a great cast that can do it all, even some of their own stunts! Some might think doing stunts is the toughest part of the show, but Scorpion star Katharine McPhee told us that even though it can be physically uncomfortable at times, it’s all part of the acting process.

.It Had To Be You

Samuel Goldwyn Films have acquired the North American rights to writer/director Sasha Gordon’s debut feature It Had To Be You. The narrative centers on Sonia (Cristin Milioti), a jingle writer who’s a bit flustered after receiving a proposal from her boyfriend Chris (Billions actor Dan Soder). Instead of settling down with the man she loves, Sonia wants to become the woman she’s fantasized about in movies and books. While attempting to embark on her own Eat Pray Love experience in Rome, Sonia is slapped with dose of reality (and hopefully a plethora of comedic moments).

“Samuel Goldwyn has released some of my favorite indies so working with them on my debut feature is truly a dream come true,” said Gordon, who premiered the film at the Austin Film Festival.

Milioti’s previous credits include Fargo, How I Met Your Mother, and the short-lived A to Z. She’s also a pretty fabulous singer, as you see in the video below:




It Had To Be You opens in select theaters October 21.

Chicago Med

The challenge of doing a medical drama, first and foremost, is spouting out all that medical jargon without making it look like you’re struggling to find the words. But it’s the second season for Chicago Med, and actor Colin Donnell (Dr. Rhodes) is more than up to that task.

“All of that technical stuff that goes along with doing a medical drama was, over the course of the first five episodes, especially I think the first half of the first season was like getting shot out of a cannon,” said Donnell. “It was really great to see the progress of it all throughout the season (when) things started to click a little bit more and make sense . . . I was pleasantly surprised that it all sort of came back when we hopped back in (for season two). Everything felt like it hadn’t completely gone away.”

Click on the media bar below to hear Colin Donnell is like “opening a new chapter of a book.”




The second season of Chicago Med, co-starring Brian Tee and YaYa DaCosta, airs tonight on NBC (9/8c).

Untitled Armored CarAfter taking some time off from the big screen, Zach Galifianakis returns in the comedic heist film Masterminds and the feature boasts an A-list ensemble. Based on the true story about one of the biggest bank heists in U.S. history,  Masterminds is directed by Napoleon Dynamite filmmaker Jared Hess. Along with Galifianakis, the movie contains a great cast which includes Owen Wilson, Emmy Award winner Kate McKinnon, and Kristen Wiig. Galifianakis had nothing but praise with Wiig, who he claims is one of the goofiest and most fearless actors he knows. Some comedians are funny but simply can’t act their way out of a paper bag (or vice versa), but thankfully Wiig is a master at both. (Click on the media bar below to hear Zach Galifianakis)

Masterminds opens in theaters September 30.

NUP_175052_1195.JPGChicago P.D. actor Jesse Lee Soffer, who plays Detective Jay Halstead on the show, has never been afraid to express his opinions on his Twitter account, and it’s refreshing to come across someone who isn’t afraid of dishing out some honest insights. During our interview with Soffer, said that Chicago P.D. offers viewers, no matter what side of the political fence they’re on, a break from the daily tensions of the day.

“We do get to portray the police in a light we think justifies them staying in good standing with the community,” said Soffer. “Because we work with cops, day in and day out, who see the problem and hate the problem just as much as you or I or anyone else in the country. Because they’re doing a good job and they’re pissed off when someone makes a terrible mistake and gives (the) police a bad name . . . that’s not to say that it isn’t a problem . . . but it’s a fine line to walk in this gray area.”

Click on the media to hear Jesse Lee Soffer explain why there hasn’t been any backlash with Chicago P.D.

Chicago P.D., co-starring Sophia Bush and Jason Beghe, airs Wednesday evenings on NBC (10 pm et/pt).
