According to The Hollywood Reporter, John Slattery is set to join the cast of “The Good Fight” as Lyle Bettencourt. Bettencourt is described as “a brilliant, sophisticated, and sensitive physician who helps Diane through a crazy time.” It’s unclear exactly what this means for his role in the series, but it certainly sounds like he’ll play a major role in Diane’s character arc for the foreseeable future.
Notably, the casting announcement included a message from “The Good Fight” co-creators and showrunners Robert and Michelle King. “We couldn’t be more excited to have the enormously talented, usually-too-busy John Slattery join the cast,” the couple’s statement said (via THR). “We feel like we’ve been chasing him forever.”
Though Slattery is perhaps best known for playing ad-executive Roger Sterling on AMC’s “Mad Men,” fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe should also recognize him for his portrayal of Howard Stark, the late father of Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) (Robert Downey Jr.). Slattery has appeared in a smattering of MCU films since debuting as the character in “Iron Man 2,” including “Ant-Man,” “Captain America: Civil War,” and “Avengers: Endgame.”
Is Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers the New Roger Rabbit? Early Reviews Overwhelmingly Say Yes
The announcement that Chip and Dale: Rescue Rangers were being resurrected sent shivers down the spine of fans. Following in the wake of the Disney+ series Chip and Dale: Park Life, which brought the in vogue simple animation style to the furry twosome, a Rescue Rangers movie seemed like it was destined to make a whole generation grimace, but following the release of two trailers, it looked possible that a revival/reboot/remake was finally being done in a way that worked. Now the first reviews suggest that the film could well be up there with the pinnacle of live-action/animated crossovers, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
Chip and Dale have been part of Disney’s character arsenal since making their debut in Private Pluto in 1943. After appearing in numerous cartoons with the likes of Donald Duck, the pair were given their own series in 1989, when they became the owners of a detective agency which they ran with the help of associates Gadget Hackwrench, Monterey Jack and Zipper. While the show only ran for a year, it has remained an iconic favorite, and now it looks set to make a huge and unexpected return.
The new film sees Chip and Dale, voiced by John Mulaney and Andy Samberg, respectively, years on from their days as investigators. Chip is working selling insurance, while Dale has continued to live a celebrity life and had a 3D make-over in the process, but the pair reunite when cartoon characters start going missing. Now the first reviews have started coming in, and it looks like this is one reunion that everyone who remembers the original series will want to see. Check out what has been said about the movie below:
There are very few rebooted franchises that manage to satisfy everyone, but somehow, Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers appears to be on track to do just that. When the first trailer for the movie dropped, it caught many off guard with a knowing humor and hybrid of 2D and 3D animation styles in a live-action world. While this managed to grab the attention, it was the second trailer that really made people sit up and take notice as it delivered a whole wave of cameos, including characters not actually owned by Disney.
Of course, this is what has led to comparisons with Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, which famously saw characters such as Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck appearing alongside the likes of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Betty Boop, which was an almost unthinkable achievement in itself without the movie delivering one of the best films of the decade in the process. Based on its early reviews, Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers could well become this generation’s Roger Rabbit – who coincidentally appears in the movie – when it arrives on Disney+ on May 20.
Ron Swanson's Best Significant Other On Parks And Recreation Is Obvious To Fans
In Season 5 Episode 3, “How A Bill Becomes A Law,” Diane Lewis (Lucy Lawless) is introduced to the cast of comic characters as a love interest for Ron, and the fans immediately fell in love with her. In the subreddit r/PandR, a picture was posted by u/deckhandpo with the caption, “These two don’t get enough credit as a couple. I think they were great for each other IMO.” Nearly all of the dozens of comments were in praise of the character, while those that spoke otherwise simply chose to insult Tammys 1 and 2.
Diane is characterized by her kind bluntness and tender confidence. A single mother of two and a middle-school vice principal, she has no room for beating around the bush. In an interview with EW, Lucy Lawless said, “This is his first mature relationship — she doesn’t pervert his nature in any way. This is the sort of woman that you might want to see him with, and yet it’s going to be damn near impossible for him to stay in it.”
Fans, like u/video-kid, praised her for accepting Ron as he was while encouraging him to become better. Others, like u/TixHoineeng, loved her sense of humor. While not the highest rated comment, u/chrissilich summed it up perfectly by saying, “Of course the only woman who fulfills enough squares on the Ron Swanson Pyramid of Greatness is Xena Warrior Princess,” which is a wonderful reference to Lawless’ notable acting career.
