The movie reunites stars like Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman from the original film, and adds newcomers like 24-year-old Jessie Usher, who landed his role in an unlikely way.

(LONDON) -- Madame President? Ryan Gosling’s got no problem with that.
The 35-year-old Nice Guys star tells the U.K.’s Evening Standard it's about time for a woman in the White House.
"I think it [America] needs a woman’s touch," he says. "I’ve always liked women more. I was brought up by my mother and older sister. I found my way into dance class. My home life now is mostly women. They are better than us. They make me better."

(NEW YORK) -- Snoop Dogg certainly grabbed some attention when the rapper released a profanity-laced Instagram video speaking against the new remake of Roots, criticizing it for, in part, dwelling on the negative aspects of black history in America.
John Amos, who starred as the adult Kunta Kinte in the original 1977 miniseries on ABC, doesn’t agree. He tells ABC Radio that the more familiar each generation is with the horrors of the past, the better.
