thestar1

Zachary Levi (Chuck, Thor: Ragnarok) is the voice of Joseph in The Star, an animated take on the Nativity story. Steven Yeun voices Bo the Donkey who, along with his animal friends, play an important role in the first ever Christmas. Gina Rodriguez co-stars of Mary in the feature which marks the feature filmmaking debut of Oscar nominee Timothy Reckart.

“It’s a really cool honor to get to bring Joseph to life and to be mixed up in this really cool assortment of awesome other actors and people that are bringing all the other animals to life, said Levi. “. . ..I think it’s going to allow for younger (and) newer audiences to see, hear and metabolize the Nativity story in a fresh new way which is exciting. I get to be Joseph who is arguing with a donkey for a lot of the movie and then their whole redemptive story. And so it’s awesome.”

Patricia Heaton: Why Everybody Loves ‘The Middle’

Now in its final season, ABC’s hit comedy The Middle has managed to win raves from both viewers and critics throughout its nine-year run. Patricia Heaton leads the ensemble cast as the matriarch of the Heck family, and for her, there’s a certain sense of déjà vu — her last family-oriented sitcom, Everybody Loves Raymond, also lasted nine seasons and gained critical acclaim, earning her a pair of Emmy awards along the way. Heaton says there are lessons to be learned by comparing the two shows and figuring out what made them both successful. (Click on the media bar below to hear Patricia Heaton)

It’s Brick’s (Atticus Shaffer) birthday on tonight’s episode of The Middle (8:00 p.m. ET/PT, ABC) and it looks like we’re going to get a bit more information about his birth.

At least that’s what co-stars, Charlie McDermott and Eden Sher tell us at HollywoodOutbreak.com.

McDermott and Sher play Brick’s brother Axl and sister Sue on the series, so they should know what’s in store…though it’s still unclear whether Brick will get an answer to his birth tale or not.

“No one’s told him about the day he was born is the premise,” Sher begins. “That’s all he wants for his birthday,” McDermott adds. “It’s a Heck mystery,” Sher laughs.

Both actors haven’t had the chance to hear too much from fans regarding the impact of their on-screen characters. They tell us the hours are long and mixing it up with the masses doesn’t happen too often because of their hectic schedules. Still, every now and then, McDermott and Sher do get that all-important feedback direct from the audience.

“I’m from Philadelphia and I’ve got cousins in Indiana,” McDermott states. “People there really like the show a lot and they really seem pretty excited to meet Axl.”

“The hours we work, if I’m not there, I’m literally sleeping,” Sher adds. “The feedback that I’m least hearing of is very simple. It’s, ‘I love Sue. Sue is great! Sue is me! Sue is me!’ I like hearing Sue is me.”

It’s probably a good bet Sue is like most every high school student.
