    Ava Sambora Cameos In Judd Apatow's Next Film; Paul Rudd Not Sure Which Characters Will Make The Cut

    In the internet age, it's pretty difficult to anything under lock and key for too long, but Judd Apatow has thus far done a pretty damn good job at keeping the details of his "Knocked Up" spinoff under wraps. What we do know is that it's not a direct sequel exactly, but rather, it picks up with Pete and Debbie (Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann) five years after the events of the first film, thought that's about it. Well, shooting is underway and another name has joined the film. Variety reveals that the 13-year old Ava Sambora -- yes, the daughter of rocker Richie Sambora -- will cameo in the film as the best friend of Maude Apatow, who reprises her...

    Judd Apatow's 'Knocked Up' Spin-off Will Be More Like 'Funny People' Says Albert Brooks

    There’s still scant information going around about Judd Apatow’s fourth film as writer-director. Previously entitled “This is Forty,” all we knew previously was that it was a spin-off/sequel of sorts to 2006’s “Knocked Up” featuring Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann's characters five years on from the events of the first film. It also boasts a bevy of talent either culled from other Apatow projects or newly welcomed into the family -- Megan Fox, Lena Dunham, Chris O’Dowd, Wyatt Russell, Melissa McCarthy , Annie Mumolo, and Ryan Lee – with Charlene Yi and Jason Segel as the only other holdovers from the 2006 original. Now there's another nugget of inf...

    Comic-Con '11: Justin Bieber To Appear In Pee-Wee Herman-Judd Apatow Collaboration?

    If Pee-Wee Herman (aka Paul Reubens) has his way, that is. Though Herman appeared at Comic-Con International's massive Hall H on Thursday to share info about his new film with Judd Apatow (and generally charm the crowd), he kept this choice detail for an interview with MTV.

    Will Jason Segel Be Leslie Mann's Personal Trainer In Judd Apatow's New Film?

    Judd Apatow is currently in the midst of shooting his "Knocked Up" spinoff, the formerly titled "This Is Forty," and thus far, he's done a pretty good job of keeping the plot details under wraps for now. What we do know is that it will pick up with Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) five years after the events of the first film, assembling a cast of mostly new faces like Megan Fox, Albert Brooks, Lena Dunham, Chris O’Dowd, Wyatt Russell, Ryan Lee, Melissa McCarthy and Annie Mumolo with the only returning actor from "Knocked Up" thus far being Charlene Yi, who played the quirky Jodi. However, it looks like Apatow might be trying to keep...

    James Franco Says Judd Apatow Wrote Jokes For The Oscars That Were Not Used By The Producers

    Wait, we're still talking about the Oscars? Take a time warp back a few months to the Kodak Theater and you might remember an extremely awkward awards show hosted by James Franco and Anne Hathaway. While it was an interesting move by the Oscar producers to enlist two younger hosts, presumably in a bid to engage a younger audience, they kept their stock staff of terrible writers on hand resulting in a show that was woefully unfunny and resorted to cross-dressing to try and wring some kind of laughter out of the easy audience there looking for a good time. Well, in an interview in Playboy (not online, via 24 Frames) Franco addresses the fiasco ...

    New Paul Feig/Judd Apatow Project May Reteam 'Bridesmaids' Stars Jon Hamm & Melissa McCarthy

    With "Bridesmaids" a bonafide runaway success -- $126 million and counting -- it didn't take long for Universal to re-up with director Paul Feig and producer Judd Apatow signing the pair a new film that has so far been described simply as "an unconventional love story."
