Sarah Silverman Talks Casting Non-Jews As Jews

In her recent podcast, Sarah Silverman commented about the recent casting of Kathryn Hahn as the late Jewish comedian Joan Rivers. Speaking on her podcast, the comedian remarked: “There’s this long tradition of non-Jews playing Jews, and not just playing people who happen to be Jewish, but people whose Jewishness is their whole being.

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga completely wastes its talent in one of the worst films of the year heading into the midway point. This film was never going to be on Will Ferrell’s greatest hits.  It certainly will not be featured on the list of Rachel McAdams’ greatest roles.  The two reunite with their Wedding Crashers director but are unable to replicate on that film’s success. It’s not a good sign when…
