The producers of Will Eno’s new play The Realistic Joneses announced today that the production will begin previews in mid-March, with an official opening night on Sunday, April 6, 2014, at a Shubert theatre to be announced. Rehearsals will begin in February. The Realistic Joneses will star Toni Collette, Michael C. Hall, Tracy Letts and Marisa Tomei. The production will be directed by Obie Award-winner Sam Gold, who was recently represented by Fun Home at The Public Theater. This new American play comes to Broadway after a critically-acclaimed run at the Yale Repertory Theatre in 2012. In The Realistic Joneses, we meet Bob and Jennifer and their new neighbors, John and Pony, two suburban couples who have even more in common than their identical homes and their shared last names. As their relationships begin to irrevocably intertwine, the Joneses must decide between their idyllic fantasies and their imperfect realities. This contemporary comedy explores how our joys and sorrows – and how we choose to face them – can come to define our lives.
There’s a new job for Toni (which has already been wrapped) to release cinemas in 2014. She co-srars alongside Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Allison Janney and Kathy Bates in Ben Falcone’s “Tammy”. The story revolves around a small-town woman, Tammy (McCarthy), whose life falls apart after she is fired from her burger-joint job and then comes home to find her sleazy husband in bed with another woman. She wants to hit the road, but her car has broken down. “She kind of loses every reason to be tethered to this town and she wants out,” says McCarthy. “She doesn’t exactly know where to go. But she doesn’t want to be there. The only way out is with her grandmother, whom she’s not particularly fond of.” The grandmother, Pearl, is played by Sarandon, who McCarthy says is part of the “bionic cast” that Falcone helped assemble including Allison Janney, Kathy Bates, Dan Aykroyd and Toni Collette – who’s most probably playing the best friend role. Falcone and McCarthy made comedy magic in the hilarious air marshal scene from the 2011 box office smash Bridesmaids. In Tammy, the two tango when Falcone makes an appearance as her terrible boss. “Tammy” hits US theaters July 2.
Pascal Chaumeil’s screen adaptation of Nick Hornby’s novel “A Long Way Down” will have its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival this February. The drama, starring Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots, is awaiting its theatrical release since it was filmed two years ago. After Berlin, a Spring release has been announced for the United Kingdom and Germany. Additionally to the news, a bunch of production stills have been released as well (two previously added stills have been replaced with better quality). Many thank to Mari for the heads-up.
604 HD captures from Hostages’ ninth episode “Loose Ends” have been added to the gallery. Credit goes to screencapped.net. “Hostages”‘ final episode has aired already before Christmas, so there are five episodes still waiting to be added to the site. As of now, no word from CBS if the show will return for a second season, but given the reviews and interest in the series, I doubt it will return. Let’s see.
