PITCH PERFECT 3 – Bellas for life !

Now graduated from college and out in the real world where it takes more than a cappella to get by, the Bellas return in Pitch Perfect 3, the next chapter in the beloved series that has taken in more than $400 million at the global box office. After the highs of winning the World Championships, the Bellas find themselves split apart and discovering there aren’t job prospects for making music with your mouth. But when they get the chance to reunite for an overseas USO tour, this group of awesome nerds will come together to make some music, and some questionable decisions, one last time.

Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Hana Mae Lee, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Chrissie Fit, Kelley Jakle, Shelley Regner, Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins all return and are joined by additions including John Lithgow and Ruby Rose. Pitch Perfect 3 is executive produced by David Nicksay, Jason Moore and Scott Niemeyer, produced by Paul Brooks of Gold Circle Entertainment and Max Handelman & Elizabeth Banks of Brownstone Productions, and is directed by Trish Sie (Step Up All In).


Happy Birthday, John Lithgow!

It’s John Lithgow’s birthday, and he is celebrating by publishing a crossword puzzle in the New York Times! 

The multi-talented actor has earned two Tonys, six Emmys, two Golden Globes, three SAG awards, and four Drama Desk awards, as well as having been nominated for two Oscars and four Grammys.

Now he’s added Puzzle Constructor to the list of accomplishments. John Lithgow, with his collaborating puzzle constructor, the veteran puzzlemaster Brendan Emmett Quigley. Photo: NYTimes

When asked by the Times to name his favorite word, he declines at first, but ultimately “comes up with ‘eldritch,’ an intriguing word that means sinister and eerie.” Fitting for a man born twelve days before Halloween!

Here’s his puzzle:

Lithgow appears as Fat Amy’s dad in PITCH PERFECT 3. “I didn’t know how to handle the job offer when it came in. I hadn’t seen the Pitch Perfect movies,” John told Hollywood Life.

“It was very hard to squeeze it into my schedule so I told my agent, ‘Let’s not even try for this.’  He said, ‘Okay, but just watch Pitch Perfect 2, so you know what you’re turning down.”

John then revealed that as soon as he saw Rebel Wilson as Fat Amy, he couldn’t stop laughing at the movie. “I called my agent and said, ‘Get me back in this! I want to do this,’” adding he immediately started doing an Australian accent and saying, “I want to be close to my daughter!”

PITCH PERFECT 3 stars Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, John Lithgow, DJ Khaled, Hana Mae Lee, Ruby Rose, Chrissie Fit, Ester Dean, John Michael Higgins and Elizabeth Banks. Opens December 2017.
