“It’s been 25 years since the legendary Robin Williams posed as a rock-n-rollin’ nanny, and his fellow cast members have reunited with fond memories of the late great comedian.

Classic family film Mrs Doubtfire was released in 1993, starring Williams and Oscar winner Sally Field. And the actors who played the Hillard children — Lisa Jakub as Lydia, Matthew Lawrence as Chris, and itty bitty Mara Wilson as Natalie, are all grown up.

Reuniting to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the film (sadly not in the house), the three joined co-star Pierce Brosnan, who played Field’s swanky new boyfriend Stu in the film for an interview on TODAY with NBC’s Gadi Schwartz.

Mama Field wasn’t there as she was on a book tour for her new memoir, In Pieces.

Among their own memories of meeting each other for the first time on set, the cast reminisced about the inimitable, beloved Williams, who played Daniel Hillard and the eponymous hero Euphegenia Doubtfire in the film. Williams died in 2014.

The cast celebrated his particularly his incredible improv talents, from filming that restaurant scene, to the pool scene, and the scene when Williams throws the remote in the fish tank………………………………………………..”

“It’d be like, ‘OK, take 25!'” said Wilson. “Robin would be different every time.”

 

Gang’s all here, with Williams in the middle as the iconic Mrs Doubtfire.

Who will host the Oscars now that Kevin Hart has stepped down?

Published

“Now Kevin Hart has stepped down from hosting the Oscars, one question remains: who will replace him?

The 39-year-old comedian was confirmed as the Academy Awards host for 2019 just three days ago.

However, he found himself in deep water this week when fans started sharing unearthed tweets from 2010 which show him using the word ‘gay’ as a slur. as well as labelling people ‘f**s’.

Hart announced his decision to step down as host of the Oscars on Thursday night. Hosting the Oscars is one of the biggest gigs a presenter can land and it’s got to go to the right person. So WHO will the Academy ask to replace Kevin?

Ellen DeGeneres is the bookies’ runaway favourite to host February’s awards show, with Betfair offering odds of 6/4. If the bookies are correct, it will be the third time she’s hosted the prestigious awards, having done so in 2007 and 2014. Her 2014 run saw her taking the infamous Oscars selfie, featuring the likes of Bradley Cooper……………………………………….”

Kevin Hart Steps Down as Oscar’s Host Amid Controversy

Published

on

The comedian, who has stepped down as Oscars host after three days of controversy, has learned about the hyper-instantaneous response of contemporary media

“Uh oh. Things have always moved fast in showbusiness and in the age of the web complaint and the infuriating “non-apology” they move faster still. It’s what John Sutherland calls the “hyper-instantaneous” response of contemporary media. At the beginning of the week, the Academy announced that comedy megastar Kevin Hart would be hosting the 2019 Oscars. Today, Hart is standing down, bruised and battered by a tsunami of online rage about his homophobic gags of 10 years ago, material that he has for some time said were in fact satiric comments about his own heterosexual anxiety.

Many were unconvinced by that explanation and Hart made things considerably worse with a video posted on Instagram on Thursday in which he announced the Academy had asked him to apologise or quit: “I chose to pass on the apology. The reason why I passed is because I’ve addressed this several times.” Announcing you’re “passing on an apology” is petrol on the flames. Hart’s final apology in the tweet announcing his resignation was more fulsome: “I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past” — although that “my past” remark shows that he is still not ready to swallow every morsel of pride…………………………..”
