Just a month ago, New Line was able to wrangle in series old-timers Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo for a much-needed cameo in the film. The reboot would star Ed Helms as their all-grown-up son Rusty and Christina Applegate as his wife, but apparently that wasn't quite enough to move the project forward. Get More »
Audreys and Rustys tended to come and go (as Old Navy reminded us this winter) over the years, but Clark and Ellen kept the family afloat all four movies. So, major snaps to the gang trying to reboot these tales of traveling woes for wrangling in the duo for a cameo. Get More »
Justin Timberlake hosted "Saturday Night Live" for the fifth time last night and to celebrate, several other members of the 5-Timers Club showed up in person to welcome him to the fold — including all three members of the 1986 cult classic comedy "Three Amigos."
