The Call Sheet sifts through the day's glut of Hollywood news to find the stories even non-industry types care about. Today: Betty White to the rescue, the return of Captain America, and JGL bows out.
Betty White's new prank show Prankin' with Betty (or something? Spoofs and Goofs? Grandma Chuckles' Gotcha Hour?) premiered last night and gave NBC its highest ratings in that time slot that it's had in three months. So look for NBC to get very excited about this regular gas of a show, and to quietly look into anti-aging technology so they can keep this White cash cow around as long as they can. Good luck, everyone. [Entertainment Weekly]
At long last you can exhale. I know you've been waiting to. Marvel has announced that their Captain America sequel, in which the Cap'n faces off against an old prankster played by Betty White, will drop into theaters on April 4th, 2014. So two years from yesterday. (Two Years from Yesterday would make a good wistful indie title, wouldn't? Get on it, Marvel Pictures Classic. That exists, right?) Aren't you excited? Don't you just wish time would speed up, that we could all just age two years without even knowing it and some people would be dead but at least we'd be in the future so we could see Captain America: The Revenge of Kitty Galore? I think we'd all like that. [The Hollywood Reporter]
