At the moment, there's something Zach Braff wants so much that he can practically taste it. It's not television success. He already experienced that when he starred on NBC's Scrubs. And it's definitely not becoming an acclaimed filmmaker. That happened when he wrote, directed and starred in 2004 feature Garden State. It's not even scoring a big TV comeback. His new ABC comedy Alex, Inc. (bowing March 28) checks off that box. No, what Zach Braff really wants right now is that chocolate chip cookie sitting in front of him as he begins a phone interview. "It looks really delicious but …," he says, holding for a very long beat, "I'm going to be good. I'll wait." There's no reason to doubt him. If there's anyone in Hollywood with decent impulse control, it's Braff. After all, since Scrubs ended in 2010, he could have had his pick of any starring role in a sitcom but, he admits, he "wasn't even entertaining the idea" of a return to network television until Alex, Inc. crossed his path. … [Read more...] about Why Zach Braff Returned to Broadcast TV With ABC’s ‘Alex, Inc.’

Wednesday's news that Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio have been cast in Quentin Tarantino's upcoming film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, should be cause for celebration for fans of the actors and director. Both Pitt and DiCaprio have worked with Tarantino before, the latter especially working well beyond his typically honorable characters as the depraved and cruel Calvin Candie in Django Unchained. These two A-listers have plenty of range to play unexpected twists on more heroic types; Tarantino has played with plenty of movie stars' personas with varying degrees of success throughout his career. Bringing Pitt and DiCaprio together for a period piece set in Hollywood circa 1969 could lead to something exciting. But recent events also suggest that Tarantino's own past might color perception of this project in negative ways. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, per the Sony log line, focuses on a washed-up actor (Pitt) from a Western TV series and his stunt double (DiCaprio) struggling … [Read more...] about Can Quentin Tarantino Get Away With Doing a Sharon Tate Movie in 2019?
