Kaley Cuoco In Talks To Star In High-Concept Thriller ‘Role Play’

Kaley Cuoco got her start in the television world. She appeared on the sitcom ‘8 Simple Rules’ in the early 2000s, and then landed on ‘The Big Bang Theory’ for a ridiculous 12 seasons.

And while her heart is still in the TV world, Cuoco has been dipping her toes in the feature waters recently.

Her latest project? A high-concept thriller titled Role Play. According to Deadline, the 35-year-old actress is in talks to star/produce the film, which is being put together by Studiocanal.

The story follows a married couple whose life turns upside down after secrets are revealed about each other’s past. That’s pretty vague, but I suppose they don’t want to give away too much yet.

The screenplay, I hear, is said to have a franchise-able hook. Seth Owen also wrote the 2015 Ridley Scott produced sci-fi thriller Morgan starring Kate Mara and Anya Taylor-Joy. A search for a filmmaker is underway. Studiocanal will fully finance Role Play.

Insiders say production should begin in 2022 after Cuoco finishes filming season two of Flight Attendant.

No word on who will play her husband, but we’ll keep you posted. This sounds like it’ll be a different role for her, so we’re sure she’s excited about it. A nice break from the comedy world.

Pete Davidson Set To Star Alongside Kaley Cuoco In Rom-Com ‘Meet Cute’

We all know Pete Davidson has had an impressive dating history in real life, dating stars like Ariana Grande, Kate Beckinsale and Margaret Qualley.

And now, he’ll have a pretty impressive on-screen romance with ‘Big Bang Theory’ star Kaley Cuoco.

According to a new report from Deadline, Davidson and Cuoco are in negotiations to star in the romantic comedy, Meet Cute, from director Alex Lehmann.

Meet Cute, I hear, is a wildly inventive deconstruction of the romantic comedy built around the question: What would you do if you could travel to your loved ones’ past, heal their traumas, fix their problems, and change them into the perfect partner?

Cuoco will star as Sheila and Davidson will play Gary, which is kinda cool. I’ve always thought he looked like a Gary. A chain-smoking Gary.

Noga Pnueli wrote the script, and it looks like it might be her first feature screenplay credit, so that’s pretty cool.

It’s important to note that the deal has not closed, so things could still fall apart, however once things start leaking like this, there’s high chance the deal gets done.

We’ll keep you posted.

10 Celebrities You Probably Forgot Were In Disney Channel Original Movies!

A few months ago we celebrated the strangest Disney Channel Original Movies, and now we are going to dig a little deeper into the TV world of Disney.

Today, we are going to focus on the talent inside those wonderful movies. You might think that Disney loaded those made-for-TV movies up with actors they found outside a gas station.

But you would be wrong…



No. 10 – Kaley Cuoco – “Alley Cats Strike!”

Release Date: 2000

Character: Elisa Bowers

Where You Can Find Her Now: Well, she’s on this little show called The Big Bang Theory. You’ve probably never heard of it. She also starred in The Wedding Ringer with some dude named Kevin Hart. Maybe one day she will finally make it big 😉



No. 9 – Kat Dennings – “The Scream Team”

Release Date: 2002

Character: Claire Carlyle

Where You Can Find Her Now: Just like Kaley Cuoco, Kat Dennings has found a home on CBS. She stars in 2 Broke Girls with Beth Behrs. She was also in Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, which was a great film with the never awkward Michael Cera.



No. 8 – Camilla Belle – “Rip Girls”

Release Date: 2000

Character: Sydney Miller

Where You Can Find Her Now: Camilla may not be as popular as the two ladies above her, but she’s still living the dream as an actress out in Hollywood. She has starred in a number of films since her Disney Channel days. Most recently she was in a movie titled The American Side with Matthew Broderick.



No. 7 – Justin Timberlake – “Model Behavior”

Release Date: 2000

Character: Jason

Where You Can Find Him Now: We have no idea. What happened to Justin Timberlake? I think I saw him on SNL a few times, but that’s about it. Poor guy would probably jump at the chance to star in another Disney Channel movie.



No. 6 – Katey Sagal – “Smart House”

Release Date: 1999

Character: Pat (or The House)

Where You Can Find Her Now: She is all over the damn place. She was on 8 Simple Rules (with Kaley Cuoco), Lost, Sons of Anarchy, and you can catch her in Pitch Perfect 2, May 15, 2015. Basically, just turn on your television or watch a movie and you’ll either see her face or hear her voice.



No. 5 – Emmy Rossum – “Genius”

Release Date: 1999

Character: Claire Addison

Where You Can Find Her Now: Her career really developed in 2004. She starred in The Phantom of the Opera and The Day After Tomorrow. After that, Rossum started showing up on everyone’s radar. Most people know her right now as Fiona Gallagher on the TV series Shameless.



No. 4 – Bryan Cranston – “‘Twas the Night”

Release Date: 2001

Character: Nick Wrigley

Where You Can Find Him Now: Just look for the dude still rocking the tighty-whities. That is where you’ll find Bryan. On a serious note, if you haven’t watched Breaking Bad, please go change that right now. Well, finish this list first, share it with your friends, and then go watch it.



No. 3 – Mischa Barton – “A Ring of Endless Light”

Release Date: 2002

Character: Vicky Austin

Where You Can Find Her Now: Mischa is probably best known for her role as Marissa Cooper on The O.C., but her career is still going strong years after the show. Her name is attached to over six film projects this year! She is clearly keeping busy. I have a feeling she will be making a comeback.



No. 2 – Hayden Panettiere – “Tiger Cruise”

Release Date: 2004

Character: Maddie Dolan

Where You Can Find Her Now: The little girl from Remember the Titans is still going strong in Hollywood. She starred in the NBC show Heroes several years ago and is currently starring in the hit ABC show Nashville.



No. 1 – Kristen Stewart – “The Thirteenth Year”

Release Date: 1999

Character: Girl in Fountain Line

Where You Can Find Her Now: Kristen Stewart was only 8-years-old when she made her debut in a Disney Channel movie. She didn’t have any lines, but as you can see from the photo, she already had that famous look perfected. All frowny jokes aside, Stewart is actually an extremely talented actress. She recently starred in the award-winning film Still Alice with Julianne Moore. Go check it out if you haven’t watched it.

Movie Review: The Wedding Ringer – tries way too hard to be outrageous and comes off stupid.


When I checked out the Wedding Ringer, I was hoping for a movie like “I Love You Man.” It kind of has the same plot. A guy short a friend has to find a best man for his wedding day. Then, unfortunately it all goes terribly, terribly wrong.

Doug Harris (Josh Gad) is that socially awkward everyman with a problem. It’s two weeks to his wedding day and he doesn’t have a best man. Lucky Doug gets a referral to Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc. This company has one goal. Giving the perfect best man to guys just like Doug. Of course, what starts as a con becomes a budding bromance between Doug and his fake best man Jimmy.

A movie has to be really bad, to have Kevin Hart in it and still make me hate it. Hell, I sat though Soul Plane…and loved it. But this one fell flat.

Here’s the deal. If you’re going to make rape jokes, if your going to make child molestation jokes, if you’re going to have a ‘service dog’ lick peanut butter off of someone’s privates or light Granny on fire, it better damn well be funny. Not light chuckle funny. I’m talking Hangover, ‘guys stealing Mike Tyson’s tiger’ funny.

This was just awkward. The entire theater was filled with uncomfortable silence for a good hour and 41 minutes. Despite Kevin Hart’s usual energetic, motor mouth delivery, the movie just wasn’t redeemable. The moments where Jimmy and Doug bonded are too heavy handed and too on the nose. The movie goes from slapstick, to a ‘Hallmark Presents’ movie about two dudes falling in love.



The comedy goes over the top, in an attempt to be something like Hangover, but they did it wrong. For the most part, we weren’t forced to watch the really raunchy, gross stuff on Hangover. Instead, they’d do the cut-away and leave it up to our imagination, making it even more funny.

This movie didn’t pull it off. It fact, much like its main character, it tried way too hard to be outrageous and just came off as stupid.

The sad thing is, Hart and Gad had some serious on screen chemistry. These two could easily have done a great movie together. They both have excellent lines and great delivery. The problems arose with the plot. I think half of it was lifted from clips of Hitch and Wedding Crashers. The other half was probably written while in a rush, after a night of binge drinking. Implausible plot turns and ridiculous shenanigans abound.

Of course, all the weird looking men in the movie find beautiful hotties at the end. Another implausible plot turn. When has anyone seen that reversed? Where a really ugly chick gets the hottest guy? Pretty much never. That’s because it doesn’t happen.

Kevin Hart was really the only thing that made this movie even palatable. Other than that, it was kind of a mess. I really wish that they’d written a script worthy of him. Hell, at this point, I would have been happy with Soul Plane 2.
