Jessica Chastain, Octavia Spencer staging 'The Help' reunion with new film



Jessica Chastain is reuniting with her The Help costar Octavia Spencer for a new movie.

Universal Pictures announced Wednesday the acquisition of a holiday comedy pitch written by the Molly’s Game star and Kelly Carmichael. The basic premise of the story is in the vein of Planes, Trains & Automobiles, as it follows two women fighting the elements to make it home by Christmas.

Chastain and Spencer will star as those two women.

The actresses were last seen together on the big screen in 2011’s The Help, which starred Emma Stone as an aspiring author working on a book from the perspective of the black maids working for white families in the 1960s. Both stars have been standouts in the current awards season; Chastain and Spencer received Golden Globe nominations for Molly’s Game and The Shape of Water, respectively.

Peter Chiarelli (The ProposalCrazy Rich Asians) will write the script for the as-yet-untitled comedy, while Chastain will produce through her company Freckle Films. Carmichael, Celine Rattray, and Trudie Styler are also on board to produce.

With roles in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, and Painkiller Jane, Chastain will hit the Saturday Night Live stage this weekend as host.

Jonas Brothers Reunion Rumors: Will The Band Really Get Back Together In 2018?

After the Jonas Brothers seemingly reactivated their Instagram account, fans started freaking out about a possible reunion. But is the band really back together?

Are the Jonas Brothers back together? While fans are hyped for a reunion, it unfortunately looks like the comeback we’ve been waiting for isn’t actually happening. There aren’t any plans for Nick Jonas, 25, Joe Jonas, 28, and Kevin Jonas, 30, to do a reunion tour, sources close to the three brothers told The Blast. The reunion rumors started when someone claimed the brothers’ official Instagram account was reactivated on Jan. 15, but the account wasn’t reactivated because it was never shut down, sources told the website. There hasn’t been a photo posted to the account since they split professionally in 2013, and nothing has been added in the wake of the rumors.

While the Jonas Bros. reunion looks unlikely, we get why fans started freaking out. After the rumors began, one of the former band’s musicians posted a photo hanging out with Nick, Kevin and Joe with the caption “Family reunion.” But a photo-op with all the members of the band is the only reunion we’re likely to get from here on out.

But just because the three brothers won’t be making music together in the studio, doesn’t mean we won’t be getting new tracks from them. Nick has launched a solo career that’s brought us jams like “Close” and “Jealous” and he even attended the 2018 Golden Globes after “Home,” the song he worked on for the movie Ferdinand, was nominated for Best Original Song. Joe, on the other hand, has been releasing songs like “Cake By The Ocean” and “Toothbrush” with his band DNCE. Kevin left music, but we don’t blame him — he’s happily married to Danielle Deleasa, 31, who he has two children with, Alena Rose Jonas and Valentina Angelina Jonas.

But all hope isn’t lost! Another Jonas-themed get-together will likely happen when Joe gets married to his fiancée, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, 21. The couple got engaged in Oct. 2017, and even though a wedding date hasn’t been set yet, when it does come we can expect some dapper pics of the three brothers celebrating Joe and Sophie’s special day. Maybe we’ll even get a video of them all singing at the reception! Right now, that’s our best hope for a JoBro comeback.

Mwbuzzers, are you disappointed the Jonas Brothers aren’t back together?

Jill Zarin Reveals Emotional Reunion With Bethenny Frankel At Bobby’s Funeral Was ‘Warm’ & ‘Sincere’

Aww. Bethenny Frankel put her drama with Jill Zarin aside to support her at her husband Bobby’s funeral on Jan. 15, and you can bet there were tears all around.

Former BFFs Jill Zarin, 54, and Bethenny Frankel, 47, reunited at Bobby Zarin‘s funeral, and Bethenny kindly “said a few works to Jill” after the service, as the widow tells PEOPLE. “When we talked, she said, ‘I loved Bobby,’” Jill says. “She said, ‘I got very emotional, I didn’t expect that and I cried,’” Jill adds.

Jill and Bethenny famously had a falling out on the third season of Real Housewives of New York City, but now, Jill apparently told Bethenny that “one of Bobby’s wishes was that we become friends again and that the whole feud would be over.” Sounds like they might just be on their way there!

Jill also tells the outlet: “Bobby loved Bethenny [and] thought a lot of what happened was my fault.” Ooh. “He said, ‘You don’t have to be best friends, but you should be friends,’” she adds. When Jill told Bethenny about Bobby’s wish, she replied: “Well, I’m here.”

Their exchange got even more emotional from there. “When I told Bethenny how scared I was to be alone, she said, ‘Don’t be scared. I’m alone.’ ” Jill also shares. “I said, ‘Yeah, but you have your daughter. My daughter grew up. You still have your baby.’” Bethenny then said, “Well, Bobby is with Cookie now. Bobby can take care of Cookie,” meaning her beloved dog who died in October at 17 years old.

“It was warm, it was nice. It was sincere,” Jill says of their reunion. “I feel like Bobby is now saying, ‘Thank God it’s over. Over and done.’”

Mwbuzzers, are you glad that Jill and Bethenny made peace?

Are The Jonas Brothers Reuniting? Why Fans Are Convinced A Reunion Is Happening

The band might be getting back together! Fans are freaking out over a potential Jonas Brothers reunion, and so are we!

Dreams really do come true! The Jonas Brothers have fans in a frenzy after reactivating their Instagram account on Jan. 15. Could a reunion tour be on the way? We’re hoping so! Many fans took to Twitter to share their excitement. “I really am not even ready or emotionally prepared for a Jonas Brothers reunion I will cry the whole time, ‘who’s that girl crying during ‘that’s just the way we roll’ this isn’t even an emotional song’ it’s me,” one user Tweeted. Another fan tweeted, “If the Jonas Brothers ever did a reunion show, I’d just give them my whole entire bank account because you better believe I’ll be getting meet & greet and buying every single merch item that’s available. Even if I already have.” Now, that’s dedication!

The Jonas Brothers officially split in 2013, and their last post to their Instagram account was on July 22, 2013. So, you can completely understand why this is such a huge deal! The brothers: Nick Jonas, 25, Joe Jonas, 28, and Kevin Jonas, 30, have since all launched solo careers. Kevin is happily married to Danielle Deleasa, 31, and they have two kids: Alena Rose Jonas and Valentina Angelina Jonas. Both Nick and Joe have kept up with their music. Nick recently released a track titled, “Remember I Told You,” featuring Anne-Marie and Mike Posner.

If the Jonas Brothers are planning a reunion, we’re sure it will be a great one! During their prime, the brothers won the T-Mobile Breakthrough Artist Award at the American Music Awards in 2008, and they were even nominated for a Grammy in 2009! We can’t wait to see how this all plays out! Stay up to date with HollywoodLife.com for more details on their potential reunion.

Gregg Sulkin Wants A ‘Wizards Of Waverly Place’ Reunion: Does Selena Gomez Feel The Same?

OMG! Gregg Sulkin just revealed that he totally wants the gang that created ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’ to get back together! Does Selena Gomez agree?!

Would you like to see Wizards of Waverly Place have some kind of reunion?! You are not alone! Gregg Sulkin, 25, just shared that he’s totally on board to revisit the magical world! “I mean, that show gave me my start here, so I’ll always be grateful, and I’ll always want to do a reunion,” he told Entertainment Tonight. But, he went on to add that, “it’s gotta make sense on a career level for every single person involved.” Is he hinting that his former co-star Selena Gomez, 25, might not be able to join the rest of the cast now that she’s a superstar? Head here for loads more images of the hunky TV star!

He also went on to drop some incredibly sweet compliments on the pop songstress and her runaway success! “I’m happy it’s happened to a nice person, because a lot of people in this industry, you seem a certain way, and maybe aren’t,” he added. “But she’s always been really lovely, has always been very determined, hard-working, and if you type in like, ‘Selena Gomez scandal,’ on Google, you’ll never find one.” So true!

Although a ‘Wizards’ reunion sounds far fetched considering just now busy Sel is these days, the TV landscape is completely packed with old shows that are getting a second chance like Fuller House, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and loads more! So, as Selena’s on-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber, 23, would say, “Never say never!”

Mwbuzzers, what do YOU think? Are you dying to see a Wizards reunion too?! Think Selena would be interested?! Share your thoughts and reactions in the comments section below!

The Cast of Hannah Montana Just Had a Nostalgic Reunion — Minus 1 Important Face


It appears that the cast of Hannah Montana got the best of both worlds after all: sweet acting gigs and lifelong friends! Though the show ended in 2011, the main cast members still keep in touch. Emily Osment, who played Lilly in the Disney Channel series, tweeted a photo on Thursday of a sweet reunion with her old costars.

Osment is pictured laughing with Mitchel Musso (Oliver), Jason Earles (Jackson), and Moisés Arias (Rico) from the show. Of course, there was one important person missing from the crew . . . Hannah Montana herself, Miley Cyrus. But her old costars wished her well, letting her know that they missed her at the get-together. “We grew up together in the strangest possible circumstance and still made it out alive all still fully in love with each other. Now that’s something,” wrote Osment, adding, “Missing our girl! Love you Miles!”

Cyrus replied to the adorable reunion snap, sending her love.

Now that’s an amazing friendship! The Disney Channel show’s cast have loved and supported each other for more than a decade, so this certainly won’t be the last reunion we see from them. Hopefully Cyrus can make the next one!

‘Hannah Montana’ Reunion Pics: Oliver, Lilly & Jackson Hang Out — Was Miley There?

There was a ‘Hannah Montana’ reunion on Jan. 10, and it was all kinds of epic. Mitchel Musso, Emily Osment, and Jason Earles were there, but what about Miley Cyrus? See the pics!


Sweet niblets! Mitchel Musso, a.k.a. Oliver, posted two adorable photos of the Hannah Montana reunion at the Bachelor Lions premiere in LA. Emily Osment (Lilly) and Jason Earles (Jackson) posed alongside Mitchel for a series of pictures, making every Hannah Montana fan’s dream come true. We can’t even deal with their cuteness! “Love use,” Mitchel captioned the photos he shared on Twitter. Emily reposted one of the photos on her own Twitter account and wrote, “2018. Some things don’t change.” Even after all these years, these actors still hang out. #Goals!

Unfortunately, Miley Cyrus was not there. But she’s got a good reason. She’s currently in Australia with fiance Liam Hemsworth! Even though Miley has shed her Disney past, would she do a TV reunion? “I don’t know, only if she, like, has an alter ego and is actually me,” Miley told E! News back in 2015. “Reverse it all the way around.” However, she said she probably wouldn’t do a TV reunion back in May 2017. Hey, people change their minds!

The Hannah Montana cast has remained close since the Disney Channel show ended in 2011. Emily and Moises Arias (Rico) staged an epic Hannah Montana reunion at Jason’s wedding to Katie Drysen in Aug. 2017. The 10-year anniversary of the show’s series finale will be happening in 2021. Will these crazy kids and Billy Ray Cyrus, of course, plan the ultimate TV reunion for fans? So many shows — Will & Grace, Full House, Roseanne — have all staged reunions and revivals in recent years. Come on, Hannah Montana cast, let’s make something happen!

The Hilarious 40-Year-Old Virgin Reunion You Probably Missed at the Golden Globes


Image Source: NBC

There were quite a few nostalgic reunions at the Golden Globe awards on Sunday night. In addition to the adorable leads from The Fault in Our Stars hugging it out and two unexpected Harry Potter costars sharing the stage, there was also a connection involving the 2005 comedy The 40-Year-Old Virgin. While we wish we could relay a fun story about Jonah Hill reconnecting with those sparkly silver boots, the moment in question actually happened between Steve Carell and Kelly Clarkson.

Now before you get all “Um, sorry but Kelly Clarkson wasn’t in The 40-Year-Old Virgin!” with me, yes, she was. Well . . . technically. Remember this?

Image Source: Universal Pictures

All these years Kelly Clarkson has had the infamous scene quoted back to her — in which Carell undergoes an excruciatingly real chest wax on camera and painfully screams out her name — but she’d never gotten the chance to laugh about it with Carell in real life. In fact, she joked about the hilarious quote back in Novemeber during an interview with Today‘s Willie Geist.

“I have yet to meet Steve Carell and I want to be like, ‘So, was it a compliment?’ Like, I dunno, like, you’re in pain and you think of Kelly Clarkson,” she said. “It was pretty hilarious. I do feel gypped though, ’cause I never met him and I’m a huge fan.”

Fortunately, that was corrected at the annual award show when the “Love So Soft” singer bumped into the Battle of the Sexes actor and his wife, fellow actress and comedian Nancy Carell. We can’t be sure exactly what was said between the trio, but judging from the couple’s smiles, Clarkson had them both in stitches.

Image Source: NBC

Of course, that wasn’t the American Idol alum’s first fangirl moment of the night. In the midst of an interview with Ryan Seacrest on the Golden Globes red carpet, Clarkson had a minor panic attack when Meryl Streep walked by. “Can I meet you?” she adorably asked the acting legend, before racing down the stairs for a quick chat.

The Magical Harry Potter Reunion You Might Have Missed at the Golden Globes

Something magical happened at the Golden Globes on Sunday night: an unlikely Harry Potter reunion. During the show, Emma Watson and Robert Pattinson (aka Hermione Granger and Cedric Diggory) joined forces to present the winner for best limited series or TV movie. The moment was short and sweet, yet fans couldn’t help but freak out on social media. While a lot has changed since the two attended Hogwarts together, this reunion certainly made our hearts happy.
