How a Nickelodeon Casting Director’s Advice Helped ‘Ozark’ Star Julia Garner After a Bad Audition

Julia Garner has revealed that she once auditioned for a Nickelodeon show! However, it didn't quite go as planned.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor, who has gone two-for-two in the Emmy’s for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Ruth Langmore on Ozark, impressing many viewers with her portrayal of her popular character, reflected on a failed audition early in her career that led her to more meaningful work as an actor and explains why she aims to forget how she performed in each take of a scene she does.

Garner recalls her audition for a Nickelodeon program when she was a teenager that appeared to have gone poorly. She remembers, “The casting director stopped me in the middle. She was like, ‘Honey, you’re great, but you shouldn’t be here.’ I’ve never been stopped in the middle. I was like, ‘Excuse me?'”

In all actuality, the remark wasn’t meant to be offensive — it was supposed to be positive reinforcement. Garner continues, “[The casting director] is like, ‘You should do independent films.’ I was too natural maybe in terms of acting. I was just too weird-looking. When you think about teen actors, you think of them having this gorgeous, luscious hair and being so pretty that you’re like, ‘You would never be the shy girl in high school.’ I was definitely not [the luscious hair girl]. My style, it’s still the same. It’s been the same since I was 6 years old, which is a black turtleneck.”

The advice paid off — Garner appeared in films like Martha Marcy May Marlene, We Are What We Are, Grandma, and The Assistant while appearing in TV series like The Americans and Waco before being cast in Ozark. All that prestige work has given Garner the ability to lose herself in her performances, which is something that she strives for in each role. She shares, “I never like the feeling of remembering a scene, because that means that I wasn’t present. If you’re hearing yourself talk, you’re not listening. It’s the same thing when you’re acting. If I remember what I did on a take, I ask to do it again.”

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Producer is Trying to Develop a Sequel to Original '90s Movie

In the thirty years since the first live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, there has not been a follow-up that captured the audience's imagination in the same way as the first. Like Superman: The Movie, the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film from director Steve Barron is considered a watershed moment. In the days before fully-realized CG characters was a realistic possibility, Jim Henson and his Creature Shop helped bring Raphael, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Donatello to life onscreen in a way that thrilled kids and surprised everybody by looking...well, pretty good. Years later, producer Kim Dawson and writer Bobby Herbeck say they would love to bring back the old-school Heroes in a Half-Shell as much as anybody else.

In fact, according to Herbeck, those are conversations he has had with Barron, Brian Henson (who has run the Creature Shop since his father passed away in 1990), and whoever will listen. It came up when ComicBook.com asked whether one of those Halloween or Bill & Ted-style "20 years later" sequels would have any appeal for them.

"Yes. The answer is yes," Herbeck said emphatically before CB could even finish the question. "We're trying to make that happen. We want to do a reboot. We got our fans come to us on Instagram, they're, 'Why don't you guys do a reboot of the first movie?' We'd love to do it."

He said that one of the big appeals of potentially trying to return to this look, and this continuity, for the Turtles is imagining what Jim Henson's Creature Shop could do with the Turtles thirty years on, and using the kind of mind-blowing technology that makes a show like Earth to Ned possible.

"The truth is, this property, it's established now after 30 years as a part of our modern pop culture, it's not going away," Herbeck added. "It's only going to continue to grow. I do wish that we could go back. I mean, we've talked to Steve Barron about this, and Brian Henson, and if there were an opportunity, if one of the studios saw fit, I think we could go back and reboot it like it was....Imagine if Brian Henson had access to the technology he does today to make these costumes and all that. I think it would be amazing. A reboot like that I think would really get people's juices flowing."

This Thursday through Saturday (November 6-8), Fathom Events and Warner Bros. are bringing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles back to select theaters. You can get more details on the event at the Fathom Events website.

Nickelodeon currently has two Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies in the pipeline: Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, based on the network's current TMNT series, set to premiere on Netflix in 2021; and a CG-animated movie from Seth Rogen's Point Grey Pictures.

What do you guys make of this? Would you like to see a sequel or a loose reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)? Let me know in the comments.

Chance Perez Is ‘Honoured’ to Join ‘Power Rangers’ Franchise, Talks Writing Possible Music for New 'Dino Fury' Series

Chance Perez can now add actor to his resume.

The 22-year-old, who is best known for his affiliation with the boy band In Real Life, is heading to the small screen to play the black ranger in the upcoming Power Rangers series, Power Rangers Dino Fury, which will air on Nickelodeon in 2021!

“This opportunity came around and I wasn’t sure if I was going to audition, but then I thought to myself, ‘Why not? Just give it a shot,’ and then I was in New Zealand not too long after, so it all happened really quickly. It feels so surreal to me because I really haven’t done much acting in my life, and to say that I’m a Power Ranger on their TV series is a dream come true,” Perez told ET Canada in his first interview since booking the role.

“I’ve been watching [the franchise] since I was a little kid,” he added. “’Power Rangers’ helped instil a lot of morals into me such as wanting to do better, try harder and be a good person. And I know that the franchise has done that for thousands of kids across the globe, so to be a part of this franchise, it’s a real honour.”

Perez hopes to pass those lessons down to his daughter, Brooklyn, who is “so excited” to be in New Zealand watching her dad on set.

“She was so excited to see the rangers in their costumes with their helmets on,” Perez said. “She was so nervous to even wave to them because she was so awe-struck. She was a fan of Power Rangers before I even got the audition, so this experience means a lot to her. I just hope that she sees me working hard, and she wants to do that in her life as well and keep pushing forward. Life is never easy, and this surely isn’t easy, but I’m working hard and I hope that she takes from that and incorporates it into her childhood.”

Perez has had a little bit of time to take Brooklyn sightseeing in their new temporary home, but when he’s not seeing the Waitomo Glowworm Caves, tree walks and Hobbiton, he’s bringing his childhood boxing training to a whole new level.

“We get to work with this Japanese stunt team and they are incredible,” Perez said. “They’re relentless in their training, and they go above and beyond. There’s a specific type of fighting style that the black ranger is learning right now to incorporate into these fight scenes and I’m really excited for it. They’re very inspiring.”

And In Real Life fans who are missing the sound of Perez’s sweet voice, can tune in closely to the series to hear a familiar voice.

“I’ve been talking to them about possibly helping compose the music by writing a little bit of it or offering some of my own songs that fit the storylines, so we’ll see how that goes, but it’s in the talks,” Perez said.

You can watch Perez as the black ranger this February on Nickelodeon.

Throughout the movie, the pups are going to be working overtime on this new rescue mission. Not only will they be expected to rescue Ryder and the other pups, they're also going to have to help out with Mayor Humdinger's kittens and save a stunt pilot.

Paw Patrol: Jet To The Rescue premiered on Nickelodeon USA on Friday, September 25, 2020, following a DVD release on Tuesday, September 8, 2020. The special also debuted theatrically in Australia and New Zealand.

Pluto TV Secures Exclusive Rights to 'Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS' & Branded 'Yu-Gi-Oh!' AVOD Channel

Pluto TV Secures Exclusive Rights to Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS & Branded Yu-Gi-Oh! AVOD Channel

LOS ANGELES--NOVEMBER 3, 2020--Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) announced that the leading free streaming television service, Pluto TV, has secured exclusive rights in multiple territories to Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS, the sixth anime series in the fan-favorite global franchise based on the Yu-Gi-Oh! collectible trading card game. In a nod to the shifting streaming landscape, Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS will bypass broadcast and other windows in the U.S., Latin America, and beyond to make its debut on Pluto TV. The deal is part of a larger initiative to launch an exclusive Yu-Gi-Oh! branded channel on Pluto TV, which the service will bring to the U.S. later this month with LATAM to follow.

A long-running success on television around the world, the Yu-Gi-Oh! series have aired in more than 90 countries over the past two decades, including Nickelodeon's Nicktoons channels in the U.K. and U.S., with recent successes on digital platforms like Apple and Amazon Prime Video, in addition to Pluto TV. Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS will be the first series in the franchise’s history to skip both U.S. broadcast and the traditional digital release windows, a move that Cinedigm’s Yolanda Macias, EVP Acquisitions and Digital Sales, said “reflects the company’s ability to pivot easily with marketplace changes and disruptions to meet viewers’ needs.”

In Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS, a duelist named Playmaker must team up with a trash-talking AI to thwart a nefarious group of hackers bent on destroying the cyber world. Ranked 6th in Best 100 TV Anime at the 2019 Tokyo Anime Award Festival, the series merges virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and high-speed dueling into a fighting extravaganza. Pluto TV’s dubs will feature all original music and effects scored for the Western market.

Upon its launch, Pluto TV’s Yu-Gi-Oh! channel will feature over 650 episodes across five series, including Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS, Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL, Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, and Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters. The international scope of the deal will allow for content to be released in multiple language dubs, facilitating wider viewership around the world.

“We are pleased to partner with Pluto TV to release Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS and the dedicated Yu-Gi-Oh! channel that will enable fans to enjoy many of the Yu-Gi-Oh! series,” said Mark Kirk, Senior Vice President of Digital Operations at Konami Cross Media NY, Inc.

Yu-Gi-Oh!'s fandom is one of the most loyal and passionate in the world, and to be able to bring Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS to Pluto TV is both an incredible honor for us and a boon for viewers around the world, who can now stream this series for free,” said Amy Kuessner, Senior Vice President of Content Strategy & Global Partnerships at Pluto TV. “We are excited to bring this single channel dedicated solely to Yu-Gi-Oh! and making it easier than ever for longtime and new fans alike to access this world.”


A true global phenomenon and perennial fan favorite, the Yu-Gi-Oh! Anime brand ranks among the top 25 highest-grossing media franchises of all time. Celebrating over 20 years and amassing a fervent following, the Brand continues to flourish with each new series and expansion. To date, fans have engaged by reading the Manga, watching more than 900 Yu-Gi-Oh! Anime episodes, and downloading the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links mobile game over 100 million times. Fans have also supported the brand at the box office and played with and purchased over 25.1 billion units of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME – a Guinness World Record! The future is bright for this Anime franchise with a robust slate of new content, games and merchandise planned for release in 2020 and beyond, continuing to engage and entertain audiences globally.

Kel Mitchell and Asia Lee Welcome Second Child, Wisdom

Party of six! Kel Mitchell’s fourth child arrived on Friday, October 23, his second with his wife, Asia Lee!

“It’s my Honor to introduce you to our new baby boy HONOR MITCHELL,” the All That alum, 42, wrote via Instagram on Monday, November 2. “That’s right my beautiful and amazing Wife gave birth to him on October 23rd. The Mitchell squad loves this new addition to our family! God is awesome! This is answered prayer and such a precious gift! I have been smiling ear to ear. So much joy in my heart and household!”

Credit: Instagram /Kel Mitchell.

Asia posted the same photo on her Instagram, saying: "Please meet our New addition HONOR JOHARI-RICE MITCHELL ❤️❤️❤️ My little baby boy was born on Friday 10/23/2020. @iamkelmitchell and I are blessed & overjoyed! He is the sweetest little guy and Wisdom is sooooo proud to be a Big sister. Thank you Lord for expanding our family 🙏🏽 HONOR, I am honored and excited to be your mommy! Your Big sister Wisdom is in Love with you already and can’t wait to play with you when you get Big and you have the best dad on the planet 🌎 #TheMitchells The wise inherit honor, but fools are put to shame!” Proverbs‬ ‭3:35‬ ‭NLT‬‬".

Among the people congratulating Kel on Instagram were his fellow All That alum Danny Tamberelli (The Adventures of Pete & Pete), who said: "Congrats my dude!!! Much love to you and the fam!! What a little stinkin’ cutie!!!"

Mitchell announced in May that the rapper, 41, was pregnant by putting a spin on the viral “Wipe It Down” TikTok challenge. When the actor wiped down their bathroom mirror, he revealed Lee’s baby bump.

The sunglasses designer wore a shirt reading, “Mom is going to be a mommy again,” while Mitchell’s read, “This dad is going to be a daddy again.” The couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Wisdom, made an appearance in a “big sister” tee. The pair went on to reveal that they had a baby boy on the way.

The Good Burger and Kenan & Kel alum, who also shares son Lyric and daughter Allure with his ex-wife, Tyisha Hampton, welcomed Wisdom in July 2017.

“My love @therealasialee gave birth to our baby girl Wisdom on Saturday afternoon,” the Nickelodeon star wrote via Instagram at the time. “She was 7 pounds 11 ounces with a head full of hair and full of happiness! Im so grateful and happy! My baby girl is here! So much joy in my heart. She is so adorable!”

The baby news came four months after Lee’s pregnancy reveal. In February 2017, she and her husband wore matching Good Burger hats and hugged with her budding belly on display.

“We have a bun in the oven!” the Chicago native gushed at the time. “Thank you @therealasialee for being the best Wife to me the best Friend to me and now the best Mom to our blessed baby!! I love you so much!”

The Dancing With the Stars alum and the “Swag Like Me” rapper tied the knot in January 2012. “My wedding day on Sunday was everything I dreamed of!” the groom tweeted following their nupitals. “My wife is so beautiful! God is so good! I thank him for blessing me with her! I can’t stop smiling.”

The comedian was previously married to Hampton, 42, for six years. The former couple welcomed Lyric and Allure in 1999 and 2002, respectively.

Congratulations Kel & Asia!!

ECC Ediciones to Distibute 'TMNT' Comics in Spain

ECC Ediciones has announced the Turtley Awesome news that it has acquired the license to localised and distribute Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics and graphic novels in Spain! The titles will range from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Original Series Vol. 1 (of 6), featuring Mirage Studios' original black-and-white TMNT comics, to graphic novels inspired by Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The first title will be published in December, with plans to roll out more throughout 2021.

Official ECC Ediciones announcement:


ECC Ediciones da la bienvenida a Raphael, Michelangelo, Donatello y Leonardo. ¡Las Tortugas Ninja! Los héroes de medio caparazón que cautivan al mundo desde los años ochenta han protagonizado sonadas apariciones en películas de imagen real, series de animación, videojuegos y merchandising variado. Pero el origen de este fenómeno de la cultura popular fruto de la imaginación de Kevin Eastman y Peter Laird se remonta al mundo del cómic, medio en el que se han narrado sus aventuras a través de diferentes cabeceras orientadas a todo tipo de lectores.

En diciembre publicaremos nuestros dos primeros lanzamientos de esta esperada licencia. Y ambos títulos son representativos de la variedad y la riqueza de una franquicia con casi cuatro décadas de historia a sus espaldas.

En primer lugar, Las Tortugas Ninja: La serie original vol. 1 (de 6) dará inicio a una edición con la que recopilaremos la etapa inicial de los personajes –publicada en blanco y negro por Mirage Studios–, en la que Eastman y Laird sentaron las bases de su rica mitología. Cada volumen en tapa dura incluirá comentarios de los autores revelando anécdotas y detalles sobre el proceso creativo de las entregas recopiladas, y contendrá una sección final a todo color con las portadas originales.

En segundo lugar, Las Tortugas Ninja vol. 1, primera entrega de la actual colección, que, iniciada en 2011 por IDW y recibida con entusiasmo por la crítica y los lectores, sumerge a los cuatro protagonistas en una sucesión de aventuras trepidantes narradas a través de un enfoque más contemporáneo. Liderada por el propio Eastman –quien hace las veces de guionista y asesor–, esta serie también cuenta en su equipo creativo con el talento de Tom Waltz o Sophie Campbell, autores habituales del mercado independiente estadounidense, y con dibujantes de la talla de Dan Duncan, Andy Khun, Freddie E. Williams II o Mateus Santolouco.

Pero nuestras novedades van más allá de ambos títulos. Kodomo, nuestra línea destinada a lectores infantiles, también albergará diferentes lanzamientos. Así, en enero comenzaremos a publicar Las nuevas aventuras de las Tortugas Ninja en formato grapa: una colección firmada por Kenny Byerly y Darío Brizuela que permitirá a nuestros lectores más jóvenes disfrutar con periodicidad mensual de las aventuras de sus personajes preferidos. Y en abril iniciaremos la publicación de El ascenso de las Tortugas Ninja, serie de novelas gráficas obra de Matthew K. Manning y Chad Thomas.

Estos lanzamientos son la punta de lanza de un ambicioso plan editorial que tendrá continuidad en 2021, y cuyas primeras novedades desvelamos en un completo dossier que podéis descargar a través del siguiente enlace. El dossier incluye previas de Las Tortugas Ninja: La serie original vol. 1 (de 6) y Las Tortugas Ninja vol. 1.
