Cool Girl Anna Kendrick is now adding the title of ‘published author’ to her résumé. The Pitch Perfect 2 actress has just signed a deal to write a collection of humorous personal essays for Touchstone. Kendrick is known for her clever tweets and scene-stealing wit so a book of LOLs sounds like a pretty good move.
Before Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Tituss Burgess was singing "Pinot Noir," he starred as the Witch from Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods. Burgess reprised his role (briefly) for Sondheim's birthday celebration. Just try and watch this clip without weeping.

Anna Kendrick visited the Daily Show last night, A-game in tow, to promote Into The Woods.

For months, musical theater dorks have been eagerly awaiting the release of Disney's Into the Woods soundtrack.

Abandon all hope, all ye who enter here. This is the first look at Disney's Into the Woods Big Bad Wolf, and that is definitely Johnny Depp in a zoot suit with wolf ears. YIKES. Everyone else looks great, though.
If you happen to be keeping up with What Madeleine Is Mad About Right Now (I have a monthly newsletter!), you probably know that I am not happy about Disney's Into the Woods. Today, they released the first teaser trailer and I am feeling many things.
If you've ever seen a production of Into the Woods, the 1986 Stephen Sondheim musical that brings — or violently smashes —together the fairy tale classics, then you probably came away with the understanding that "happily ever after" isn't all it's cracked up to be. Get what you've spent your whole life wishing for and…

So, Rob Marshall (the guy who gave us the Chicago movie and the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean) is adapting the creepfest Broadway musical Into the Woods for the screen. Excited? Scared?
