The Mean Girls’ trailer forgot it’s a musical
November 8th, 2023 under Tina Fey. [ Comments: none ]

The Means Girls musical is doing a Hairspray and The Producers, as in the feature film that was turned into a Broadway musical, is being turned into a movie musical. However, you wouldn’t know it from the trailer they released today.

And that makes me wonder why? I have my theories, and none of them are positive.

New student Cady Heron (Angourie Rice) is welcomed into the top of the social food chain by the elite group of popular girls called “The Plastics,” ruled by the conniving queen bee Regina George (Reneé Rapp) and her minions Gretchen (Bebe Wood) and Karen (Avantika). However, when Cady makes the major misstep of falling for Regina’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels (Christopher Briney), she finds herself prey in Regina’s crosshairs. As Cady sets to take down the group’s apex predator with the help of her outcast friends Janis (Auli’i Cravalho) and Damian (Jaquel Spivey), she must learn how to stay true to herself while navigating the most cutthroat jungle of all: high school.

Mean Girls: Tne Musical (?) will be released exclusively to theaters on January 12th.

Oh, here is something positive about the trailer. Jon Hamm is teaching sex ed. So I will dream about that tonight.


Could Tina Fey take over Saturday Night Live?

Lorne Michael is 78 years old, and he has hinted that he plans on retiring at the end of the show’s 50th season in 2025.

So NBC has two options. They can cancel the show, or they can try it out with a new Executive Producer. And if they go with the latter option, Page Six is reporting that Tina Fey is being courted for the job.

“I would be surprised if it wasn’t her,” a source said. “Seth Meyers has his own show. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg won’t come here. Judd Apatow passed [on the job] years ago. Amy Poehler has her own stuff. Bill Hader is directing a movie. Kate McKinnon is too hot.”

Personally, I think she would be the best choice because she has an eye for talent. And that is something Michaels hasn’t had in a really long time. Plus, she is funny. Does the sketch series even remember funny?


Mean Girls won’t return to Broadway
January 11th, 2021 under Broadway, Tina Fey. [ Comments: none ]

As we get closer to the curtains going up on Broadway again (hopefully) on May 30th, we find out which shows will not be back. Mean Girls is the latest production to announce that the lights will stay off for them at the August Wilson Theatre.

The musical based on Tina Fey’s 2004 movie started previews on March 12, 2018. Then one day short of their second anniversary, the Great White Way went silent because of COVID-19.

Even though it will not be returning to the stage, reports a movie version of the musical is in the works.


The Golden Globes takes over Oscars’ night

Awards season is going to look a lot different in 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic. The Tonys and the Grammys do not have a set night yet, the Oscars moved from February 28th to April 25th, and now the Golden Globes has a new date. It is going to be on Oscars’ old night.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association confirmed that Tina Few and Amy Poehler are still hosting the big night. If they will be doing it in front of a live studio audience, that is still an unknown. But who cares TinAmy are back where they belong.


Ricky Gervais will not host the Golden Globes next year

Ricky Gervais said that he would not be back to host the Golden Globes, and as of now, he is not lying like he did in The Invention of Lying. That is because NBC announced today that Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be hosting the shindig next year in a date to be announced.

The beloved duo hosted the awards show in 2013, 2014 and 2015. How excited are you too see them back?
