Cindy Adams surveys coming attractions03/29/2021
Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne teaming for an East Coast shoot. “The Good Nurse” is a true thriller story of a not-so-good R.N. Among the worst serial killers ever — dubbed the Angel of Death — Charlie Cullen confessed to doing away with 30 or more patients in 16 years.
His mortuary was a New Jersey hospital. Serving in a Trenton prison, sentenced to eight consecutive life sentences, he is eligible for possible parole in 2403.
More. Nobody’s scratching to uplift the standards of today’s down market. Tyler Perry’s onto one about a club with male exotic dancers. I mean, what could be classier? Title’s “All the Queen’s Men.” Ten episodes. The guys are gorgeous. Their visible assorted parts look nice, too. It’s being cast now, and the auditions will probably be with their drawers off.
Another happy uplifting charmer, “Cherry,” is about an Army medic turned serial bank robber. Stars Tom Holland, who puts a gun to the head of a bank teller. Schlepping around hawking the thing is Robert Downey Jr., who’s not even in it but swears “Cherry” is definitely not the pits. “It gets cinema’s highest compliment. It bears rewatching.” OK. “Cherry” bit into Apple TV+ this month.
Wait. More quality. Not that I’m hunting another Ingrid Bergman classic — but now comes comedian Eric Andre. Known interplanetarily for his Adult Swim comedy series, he spent five years making “Bad Trip,” a hidden-camera lowbrow film inspired by Sacha Baron Cohen, who was definitely not behind Ingrid Bergman movies. Pranksters include Tiffany Haddish and almost Chris Rock, until his gag backfired, as did his cameo. “Trip” pulls into Netflix Friday.
Funny at an odd hour
Lilly Singh. A Canadian comedian. She went by “iiSuperwomanii” on YouTube. Pay attention. She’s on NBC 1:35 a.m. to 2:05 a.m.
Lilly: “We’re breaking the format. Ditching the desk. Just bringing my authentic self to late night. I’m not fancy. You’ll see me weird, imperfect.
“We’re shooting in a house. No live audience. The crew is my audience.”
Yeah. So sleepwalkers: Next time you’re up around a quarter to 2 in the morning, tell me about it
Yum’s the word
Good news. Forced to close due to CV, our favorite Italian restaurant Fresco, 52nd between Mad and Park, reopens in May. Family-owned by the Scottos, mom Marion runs it. Anthony Jr. and Elaina watch over it, Fox 5’s Rosanna Scotto loves it. And every face in the city’s in it. See you soon behind my bowl of pasta.
In his court
Cuomo appointed all seven judges to NY state’s highest court, including its Chief Judge. Allegiance to Andrew? Lotsa luck to any smartass lining up there to insult him.
Also, by the way, this Court of Appeals Judge Leslie Stein has announced retirement and Judge Eugene Fahey has hit mandatory retirement age.
Biden may not understand what he’s actually saying. Dangerous chaos on our border — tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to shelter 100,000 migrants apprehended monthly — is the worst situation in 20 years. He’s not worried because this is just a “winter thing.” He sees no problem with this disorder he created. Joe knows the media’s in the tank for him no matter what.
To quote Mark Twain: “His mother should have thrown him away and kept the stork.”
I’m taking off. I’ll see the Yankees’ April 1 Opening Game then rest my bones. See you on Tuesday. A Greek Orthodox lady, her Israeli gentleman, and their four-pound Pomeranian embrace different religions. Last week was Passover. Barking Luna wouldn’t leave her crate for gefilte fish — but she did consume a whole sheet of matzos. With honey.
Only in New York, kids, only in New York.
