Hollywood News Banter

Hosted by

Matt Belloni, executive editor of the Hollywood Reporter joins Kim Masters to discuss top entertainment news stories of the week.

  • We now have an idea of what Bob Iger might be up to post-Disney. The Disney CEO and football fan agreed to take on the role of non-executive chairman to oversee a possible NFL stadium in Carson that would be the new home of the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders.
  • CBS has confidence in Colbert. They're giving him the highly-coveted post-Super Bowl spot -- a place that's frequently used to launch new shows. Back at Colbert's old home, Comedy Central, ratings are not great, especially for Larry Wilmore's show.
  • Deals out of the American Film Market show China now putting real money into English-language films. While Chinese films can do very well in China, they don't travel well. Chinese investors seem to be saying that for now, if they want a global influence, they need to start making films in English.
