New this week: Morgan Wallen music, tiger cubs and 'Herself'
Here’s a collection curated by The Associated Press’ entertainment journalists of what’s arriving on TV, streaming services and music platforms this week. Shia LaBeouf co-stars as her partner and Ellen Burstyn gets a meaty supporting role as her mother. “Pieces of a Woman” is not for the faint of heart but in the trauma, there is catharsis too. It’s loosely based on Davidson’s own life and childhood loss and the comedian gets a co-writing credit, too. It adds to the anticipation of his sophomore album, “Dangerous: The Double Album,” to be released Friday.
Health contractors vetted stars' politics for US virus ad

US vetted stars' politics to showcase Trump virus response
Director Judd Apatow believes Trump “does not have the intellectual capacity to run as president,” according to a list of more than 200 celebrities compiled by one of the firms. “I have ordered a strategic review of this public health education campaign that will be led by our top public health and communications experts to determine whether the campaign serves important public health purposes,” Azar told the subcommittee, which is investigating the federal government’s response to the coronavirus outbreak. Because public health policy around the coronavirus pandemic has become so politically polarized, it’s unclear how well a confidence-building campaign from the government would play. And Trump has alienated much of the medical establishment with his dismissive comments about basic public health measures, such as wearing masks. Antony and Quaid were among just a few celebrities who were approved for the campaign, according to the documents.
With a satirical fictional memoir, Jim Carrey gets real
This combination photo shows the cover of "Memoirs and Misinformation," left, and a portrait of author-actor Jim Carrey. Theres a lot of real feeling in this book, said Carrey in a Zoom interview from his home in Hawaii. And I think Jim was aware very early on that thats not how it would go down.Carrey isn't sure when he began to feel Jim Carrey cleaving away from himself. As eager as he seems to be to take Jim Carrey and tear him to pieces, he seems at least through a computer window thousands of miles away at ease in his own skin. Whatever it was, it was the perfect cocktail to get us here to this moment," Carrey says of his life.
Pete Davidson: 'The King of Staten Island' is 100% me
In this image released by Universal Pictures, Pete Davidson, left, appears with director Judd Apatow, center, during the filming of "The King of Staten Island." It was in front of a handful of people at a place called the Looney Bin Comedy Club in Staten Island. Its an ironic place for Davidson to be since The King of Staten Island, a comedy Davidson co-wrote with Apatow and Dave Sirus, begins with him playing videogames in his moms basement. The King of Staten Island may change that. Ill never forget that.For those who know him more from the tabloids, The King of Staten Island will certainly reveal a different side to Davidson.
