Toby Jones talks working with Jennifer Lawrence again in “The Falling”

Toby Jones and Jennifer Lawrence

Posted by on

Toby Jones and Jennifer Lawrence never share any onscreen time in “The Hunger Games,” so they’re making up for that in the upcoming movie “The Falling.” Formerly titled “Serena,” the movie follows a couple played by Lawrence and Bradley Cooper as they commit a string of crimes to try to make money for their family. Jones plays the sheriff tasked with bringing them to justice.

IFC caught up with Jones at “The Hunger Games” premiere Monday night where he shared that “The Falling” was beginning shooting the following week. He said he’s excited to be returning to set with her as “The Hunger Games” is about to hit theaters, especially in a film that inverts their roles.

“I’m chasing her character,” he explained. “She’s the villain, I’m the hero.”

The movie, which also stars Rhys Ifans, tells the story of George and Serena Pemberton, the owners of a timber empire in North Carolina. However, their claim on the wealth becomes complicated when the couple finds out Serena can’t bear any children. Susanne Bier will direct it.

“Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence have a love story that completely robs them of any moral place, and I as the sheriff, I’m chasing them down and trying to pin crimes on them that they’ve committed,” Jones explained of the film’s plot.

In “The Hunger Games,” Lawrence plays a 16-year-old girl forced to fight to the death against 23 of her peers to last through a terrifying reality tournament held by their futuristic society every year. Jones plays the Hunger Games’s heartless announcer Claudius Templesmith.

Gigi may be a grandmother, but she’s not the stay home and knit doilies and bake cookies while sipping weak tea type. As anyone who has watched Gigi Does It can tell you, she’s more likely to knit a gimp mask and woo the dad jeans off of every grandpa in Boca without a thought for what the retirement community will think. She has a mouth that would make a sailor blush and isn’t afraid to use it.

Watch this supercut of Gigi’s finest bon mots and bad deeds, but be warned– Gigi is NSFW and Not Safe For Facebook, so crank up the volume at your own peril.

Posted by on

It’s Monday, so you know what that means: Break out the turquoise eye shadow and bedazzled sweater! Tonight’s all new Gigi Does It at 10:30P ET/PT will keep you charged for the rest of the week. But before you forge headlong into septuagenarian hilarity, here are five ways to get ready for tonight’s episode.

1. Brush up on your culinary skills.

According to Gigi, every dish should be prepared with a lotta love and a little bit of lust. But be sure to keep the ecstasy to a minimum and all bodily fluids outside the pot.

2. Experience the Great White North’s signature dish.

French fries, cheese curds and gravy — poutine is a delicacy that isn’t for everyone. Love it or hate it, you should have at least a few bites if you want to be considered a true Canadian.

3. Whip up some “special” cookies.

Competition is fierce when Gigi and her friends vie for the affections of eligible bachelor Melvin. Cookies are always a good idea to win someone’s heart — particularly if they’re baked with love and a little “extra” ingredient.

4. Watch the video Facebook doesn’t want you to see.

Deemed “Too Hot for Facebook,” this montage of Gigi-isms removes the bleeps and blurs for a raw, NSFW look at the foul-mouthed granny in action.

5. Crack open Gigi’s book.

Gigi Does It Book Cover

Like most seniors, Gigi knows how little appreciation grandparents receive from their grandkids. Which is why the saucy old broad penned a children’s book reminding today’s youth to call their dear grandmothers. Give it a read here.
