Brittany Snow Saves The Best For Last In ‘Pitch Perfect’ Finale

pitch-perfect02In theaters today, PITCH PERFECT is a musical comedy set in the world of college level a cappella singing competitions and owes more than just a little to the success of such crowd pleasers as GLEE (for the music) and MEAN GIRLS (for the attitude). Pitting the girls against the boys while delivering fun tunes and sharp dialog, PITCH PERFECT may just be a sleeper of a hit. Directed by JASON MOORE from a script by KAY CANNON, the cast includes ANNA KENDRICK, ELIZABETH BANKS, REBEL WILSON, ALEXIS KNAPP, BRITTANY SNOW, CHRISTOPHER MINTZ-PLASSE and JOHN MICHAEL HIGGINS.
Rife with music, the film features plenty of numbers but, during our recent interview, BRITTANY SNOW confessed that it was the big finale that the cast found the biggest challenge. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

Aussie Comedienne Rebel Wilson Is ‘Pitch Perfect’ And Poised To Hit It Big Stateside

pitch_perfect1Slated to hit the big screen later this week, PITCH PERFECT is an entertaining musical comedy set in the world of college level a cappella singing competitions. Part GLEE (a little) and part MEAN GIRLS (a lot), the film pits the girls against the boys while delivering fun tunes and sharp dialog. Directed by JASON MOORE from a script by KAY CANNON, the cast has KENDRICK joined by ELIZABETH BANKS, REBEL WILSON, ALEXIS KNAPP, BRITTANY SNOW, CHRISTOPHER MINTZ-PLASSE and JOHN MICHAEL HIGGINS. Certainly one of the highlights of PITCH PERFECT is the casting of relative unknown Australian actress/comedienne REBEL WILSON. A popular performer in her homeland “down under”, WILSON has been popping up stateside for a couple of years now. At the recent press conference to promote PITCH PERFECT, she talked about getting started in show biz. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

‘Pitch Perfect’ Star Anna Kendrick Finds Singing On-Screen Is Forever

pitch_perfectEnjoying a very busy season is actress ANNA KENDRICK, who is finding almost as much work as an off-screen voice as she is on-screen. Currently in theaters, she can be heard as the voice of Courtney Babcock in the animated family film PARANORMAN. Due in theaters soon, END OF WATCH is a gritty cop drama that has her sharing the screen with JAKE GYLLENHAAL and MICHAEL PENA and, later this month, she’s one of the stars of the a capella musical PITCH PERFECT.
No stranger to singing in public, KENDRICK was nominated for a Tony Award for her role in the Broadway musical HIGH SOCIETY and was featured in an all-star tribute version of A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC.  But there’s a big difference between singing on stage and singing on screen. During our recent interview, KENDRICK talked about how an on-screen performance lives on forever. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

They Said It Couldn’t Be Done: Tom And Roseanne Make Nice On Celebrity Roast

tom-arnold-roseanne-roastAs celebrity roasts go, last weekend’s Comedy Central tribute to the legendary ROSEANNE was a resounding success. Hosted by GLEE star JANE LYNCH and featuring such stand-out stand-up talent as JEFF ROSS, SETH GREEN, CARRIE FISHER and (a surprisingly hilarious) ELLEN BARKIN, the fast and furious humor was decidedly and expectedly off-color and insulting. The show gets extra credit for the reunion of ROSEANNE with ex-husband TOM ARNOLD, who took the dais for a few good-natured barbs before leaving the stage on a sweetly sentimental (if not completely uncomfortable) note. Divorced and incommunicado for eighteen years, the couple actually seemed relieved to have this long-solidifying ice broken despite their acrimonious and extremely public break-up.
Sitting down with entertainment reporters to promote his upcoming film HIT & RUN, ARNOLD talked about doing the roast and his moment with ex-wife ROSEANNE. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
