“In that scene, [director] Francis [Ford Coppola] used a real Romanian priest,” she explained. “We shot the master and he did the whole thing. So, I think we’re married.”
When they reconnected on the set of “Destination Wedding,” she reminded him that they each said “yes” to the “Do you take…?” question while filming with that ordained priest.

Debra Messing assures us that David Schwimmer’s character on the upcoming 10th season of “Will & Grace” is nothing like his iconic “Friends” persona.
“He’s as far away from Ross as he can possibly get because he’s already mastered Ross,” Messing told Variety on Saturday night in Los Angeles at Project Angel Food’s Angel Awards, where she was honored with this year’s Founder’s Award. “I think people will be excited to see him in our world playing a different part.”

Getting “Crazy Rich Asians” made the way author Kevin Kwan and director Jon M. Chu wanted it has been a battle, one Jeong himself has had to wage on the set of “Dr. Ken” as well. And he’s ready for Hollywood, and the world to change.

I don’t say this to be a negative nabob, but because it’s the stark reality that the powers of the movie industry are up against. We all know the larger trends. For years, higher ticket prices (and carny-barker gambits like 3D) have been working to compensate for the fact that movie attendance is gradually sliding downward. The international box office takes up a growing segment of the business,
The story takes place a year after a devastating flood has killed five locals in an idyllic country town, and when a mysterious new plant appears. The plant’s phenomenal ability to restore youth is so formidable that attempting to harness it means re-evaluating values. It is a miracle some will kill to keep secret.
