Comments Off on “Sing” cast poses with animated animal counterparts for EW
Entertainment Weekly have published a fabulous new article on Sing, including portraits of the cast alongside their animal counterparts, created by the animation artists of Illumination Entertainment and photographer Norman Jean Roy:
Sing cast poses with animated animal counterparts in exclusive photos
Who else could get Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, and Scarlett Johansson to sing Top 40 hits as a koala, pig, and porcupine, respectively?
Only the wild minds of Illumination Entertainment could lasso such A-listers to go full animal for the latest pic from the filmmakers behind Minions and Despicable Me: Director Garth Jennings’ ensemble musical, Sing, which follows a wily producer named Buster Moon (McConaughey) who puts on a singing competition to save his theater and inspire some dreams in the process.
It turns out, even animals have fantasies of stardom, and that explains why the cast of Sing is stacked with certifiable superstars — all of whom have a shot at winning the contest and emerging on the top of the charts, thanks to a soundtrack of more than 65 song covers, from the Beatles to Kanye.
The participants, as gorgeously assembled in EW’s exclusive cast portrait above, span the species spectrum: There’s Taron Egerton’s Johnny, a soulful gorilla who wants to break out of the family crime business; Meena, a shy elephant teen who bears the ferocious vocals of Tori Kelly; Scarlett Johansson’s prickly porcupine, Ash; Seth MacFarlane’s Sinatra-spewing mouse, Mike; Gunter (Nick Kroll), a German pig; and Rosita, Reese Witherspoon’s put-upon mother of 25 piglets, who puts her own dreams on hold for her children. (See below for another shot of McConaughey with Buster Moon.)
“There’s something really wish-fulfilling about it all,” Witherspoon tells EW of the project. “We all have secret desires and part of us feels like no one sees our real talent, or our sort of true self. My character is the mom who does everything for everybody, and nobody seems to notice that she has bigger dreams and desires. I think there’s something really beautiful about our secret dreams being fulfilled.”
Witherspoon has gone down the animated route before (“My secret trick is eating M&Ms — they make me go completely nuts,” she giggles) but is in new territory with such a starry cast, a red-hot director in Jennings, and executive producer Chris Meledandri, the overseeing mind of Illumination.
The Today Show aired a pre-recorded segment with Reese today, in which she talked about Draper James and her business ventures:
Reese Witherspoon on her loves: Kids, clothing company Draper James.. and Snapchat?
Actress Reese Witherspoon tells TODAY’s Jenna Bush Hager that she gave the performance of her life when pitching her Southern-focused clothing company Draper James to a group of venture capitalists for backing. Witherspoon also says that she’s teaching her kids some of the lessons she’s learning as an entrepreneur, and in turn, they’re giving her fashion advice and teaching her the art of Snapchat.
Last week Reese attended the launch of her friend Jessica Alba’s new denim collection, JA x DL1961. She looked chic in a Draper James blouse, jeans from the DL1961 collection, and Manolo Blahnik shoes. Find photos from the party in our Gallery, and some more info on the launch within this post:

Reese Witherspoon Sweetens Sprinkles Baking Book Launch Party Outfitted in Draper James
Is there anything sweeter than all-American good girl Reese Witherspoon? Only one thing could possibly come close: the indulgent recipes in Candace Nelson’s The Sprinkles Baking Book ($17; amazon.com).
The charming pair joined forces on Tuesday for the book’s pre-release party in Beverly Hills, where the actress made sure to get some face time with a gorgeous carnation-lined cake.
Witherspoon arrived at the star-studded event in a navy pencil skirt with sparkling embellishments ($275; draperjames.com) and a matching collared top ($195; draperjames.com), both from the actress’s Southern-inspired clothing line, Draper James.
The 40-year-old mother-of-three left her blonde locks down for the event, tousled waves dusting her shoulders. Complementing her relaxed ‘do, Witherspoon kept her makeup fun and minimal, adorning her famous smile with a bright raspberry lip and accessorizing with a simple pair of diamond stud earrings. The Oscar-winner added a couple inches to her 5-foot-1 frame with a pair of stiletto sandals that showed off her deep crimson pedicure.
Rumor has it, Reese Witherspoon contributed her own family recipe to the baking book…

Comments Off on Irish comedian Sharon Horgan writing film for Reese Witherspoon
Irish comedian Sharon Horgan writing film for Reese Witherspoon
Irish comedy star Sharon Horgan has revealed she is penning a new movie for Oscar-winning actress/producer Reese Witherspoon.
The Meath writer with the Midas touch has been earning critical acclaim for her new TV series, Divorce , starring Sarah Jessica Parker.
Horgan has conquered the small screen a string of TV hits such as Pulling and Catastrophe but now she reveals she has her sights set on Hollywood.
She is following in the footsteps of best-selling author Cecilia Ahern, who has seen three of her novels get the Tinseltown treatment. PS I Love You became a huge success more than a decade ago, while her star-studded rom-com Love Rosie was also filmed in the capital.
Sharon Horgan tells next month’s Red magazine she has teamed up with the Walk the Line star who has recently produced hits like Gone Girl and Wild.
“Reese set up her own production company specifically to create better roles for women because she was fed up with getting sent scripts where she was some funny guy’s girlfriend. She saw Pulling and that’s why we hooked up,” she said.
The American actress took to Twitter a few months ago to tell of her love for Horgan’s TV sitcom, Catastrophe , which revolved around her surprise pregnancy in the show.
“New obsession, #Catastrophe on @AmazonVideo — @SharonHorgan & @robdelaney made me laugh so loud on a plane, I was told to be quiet…twice”, tweeted Reese Witherspoon.
The Irish writer said she was delighted with the glowing endorsement from the comedy actress.
“She was so great about Catastrophe. She definitely piled a few extra thousand viewers by Instagramming about it.” The TV funnywoman teamed up with Rob Delaney to make the single camera romantic comedy about an Irish woman and an American man who end up in a relationship in London.
The 46-year-old actress, who has two daughters, Sadhbh, 12, and Amer, 8, has said her own recollections of her pregnancies were part of the inspiration for the character.
The in-demand star — sister of ex-Irish rugby player Shane Horgan — said she was bowled over when Parker approached her to write a show for her return to the small screen after the Sex And The City series.
She said: “We met for lunch in Manhattan. I thought I can’t meet Sarah Jessica Parker without making the effort. I was dolled up to the nines and she was in her workout clothes.
“She said she was interested in a project about a damaged relationship. I left in a daze thinking ‘Shit, I think I’m being asked to write a show for Sarah Jessica Parker’.”
Sex And The City was escapist and aspirational, said the Irish writer. “This is warts and all. It’s a very real look at a woman in the throes of a pretty awful divorce. Although I don’t think there are any nice divorces.”
