In one of his final film roles, Robin Williams plays the patriarch of an estranged family of misfits in the holiday comedy A Merry Friggin’ Christmas.

Joel McHale stars as Boyd, a family man who doesn’t actually like to spend that much time with his family, especially his father (Williams). Their relationship is further put to the test when the two hit the road after Boyd realizes he left all of his son’s gifts at home. The film was directed by British TV director Tristram Shapeero, who has worked on shows like Community and Parks and Recreation back in the states from a script by Michael Brown.  READ FULL STORY

Alan Arkindryly saucy in Argo and hitting the town with fellow veteran guys Al Pacino and Christopher Walken in next year’s debauchery-filled Stand Up Guys, is in negotiations to join two other greying bigwigs Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone — plus Kim Basinger — in the boxing film Grudge Match, about two retired fighters (De Niro and Stallone) who go head-to-head again in the ring. Peter Segal (Get Smart) is directing from a screenplay by Tim Kelleher, with rewrites by Entourage creator Doug Ellin. [Variety]
