The political comedy will see the former ‘Office’ actor play a Democrat political consultant.
Mackenzie Davis has joined Jon Stewart’s next directorial effort, Irresistible.

The Blade Runner 2049 actress joins a cast that already includes Steve Carell, Chris Cooper and Rose Byrne.

The political comedy, set at Focus Features, is the story of a Democratic political consultant (Carell) who helps a retired ex-Marine colonel (Cooper) run for mayor in a small Wisconsin town.

Brad Pitt’s Plan B will produce with Stewart.

Davis broke out on the AMC series Halt and Catch Fire, and went on to book roles in such big-budget studio films as The Martian and Blade Runner 2049. She also has been tapped to star in Tim Miller’s upcoming Terminator reboot, joining franchise stars Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Topher Grace is joining Steve Carell, Rose Byrne, Chris Cooper, and Mackenzie Davis in the Jon Stewart’s comedy movie “Irresistible.”

Carell is portraying a Democratic political consultant who helps a retired ex-Marine colonel, played by Cooper, run for mayor in a small Wisconsin town. Byrne will play Carell’s Republican counterpart and Davis will play the daughter of Cooper’s character. Grace’s role is being kept under wraps.

Stewart, who is directing and wrote the screenplay, will also produce alongside Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment. Focus Features and Universal Pictures International will distribute the film worldwide.

“Inside the Actors Studio” announced the lineup for new installments of the show, and revealed how it will carry on without the show’s iconic interviewer, James Lipton.

Ovation revealed that the show’s new season will premiere on the cable channel on Sunday, Oct. 13. Confirmed episodes include Jane Lynch interviewing David Oyelowo and Alec Baldwin interviewing Henry Winkler.

Brad Pitt just had so much to say.

During a Los Angeles County hearing earlier this week, the 55-year-old actor, who was there advocating for increased funding to support improvements for the L.A. County Museum of Art, had to be cut off by Board of Supervisors Chairman Janice Hahn.

In a hilarious video of the exchange, shared by the Today show, Hahn can be heard laughing while telling the actor, “It gives me great pain to say wrap it up, Mr. Pitt.”

“We actors suffer from verbosity,” a smiling Pitt quipped after sharing that he knew he had exceeded his time limit.

Addressing the hilarious incident on social media, Hahn shared that “cutting Brad Pitt off when his time expired for public comment was the hardest thing I had to do all day — but rules are rules!”

Hahn also shared a photograph of the pair grinning together inside a courtroom. (Pitt is a longtime art and architecture aficionado who has studied with sculptor Thomas Houseago and architect Frank Gehry.)

Also present for the hearing? Actress Diane Keaton.

However, as Today host Carson Daly went on to note, Keaton, 73, managed to wrap up her speech with “time to spare.”

From space opera to classical opera, that’s the trajectory of filmmaker James Gray over the next 12 months. His new sci-fi epic, Ad Astra, starring Brad Pitt as a man who travels through the solar system in search of his father, is currently slated to open May 24 — and, he hopes, could be preceded by a premiere at Cannes — and then he will step behind the scenes at Los Angeles Opera to direct a new version of the Mozart classic, The Marriage of Figaro, which will bow in June, 2020.

“My job, I think, honestly, is to do as little harm as possible to this magnificent creation, get my ego out of the way and not have it be me rethinking Mozart. To me, that’s folly,” Gray tells The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s my job to build on what is magical and great about Mozart and not screw it up.”

Gray has competed for Cannes’ Palme d’Or on four consecutive films dating to his sophomore effort, The Yards, through his 2013 film, The Immigrant. Will he get to the Cote d’Azur again this spring?

So, will Ad Astra bow at Cannes?

We’re trying, we’re certainly hopeful. The issue is a little bit out of our hands because the shots come in from the VFX houses and right now our delivery date is late April, early May, which is really, really cutting it close. You want your visual effects to be so good that nobody thinks about them, that people don’t think of them as visual effects. We have hopes, but the whole team, Plan B and Brad [Pitt] and, thankfully, New Regency, have been fantastic through this. We’re all just anxious to put out the very best movie, and whether we actually get to make Cannes on May 18 — or whatever the hell the day is — is of secondary concern to getting the film to look exactly right. And I’ve been wonderfully blessed with great support from them. That’s where the focus is now and we’re just sort of keeping our fingers crossed.

Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jane Fonda and Jim Gianopulos were among those who welcomed the art fair Frieze to Los Angeles at the Paramount lot.

Not even yesterday’s torrential downpour could keep the throngs of visitors away from the inaugural edition of Frieze L.A., somewhat ironically situated in the “Blue Sky” tank of the Paramount Pictures lot. The global art fair, which launched in London in 2003 and expanded to New York in 2012, highlights artwork from more than 70 of the top galleries in the world (a third of them from L.A.), inside a — thankfully waterproof — 62,000-square-foot tent. Frieze L.A. is open to ticketed visitors through Sunday.

“What a great way to spend the morning,” Late Late Show host James Corden told THR, as he examined a piece by Gabriel Orozco called The Samurai Tree. “I’ll do anything to wander around looking at great art. I just want to see it all.”

In the first hour of the VIP preview, THR caught up with Ari Emanuel, CEO of Endeavor, which took a majority ownership of Frieze in 2016, as he snaked throughout the crowded booths in his sneakers with Frieze co-founder Amanda Sharp, shaking hands and accepting congratulations on the turnout.
