James Devaney/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- A year after her Roseanne revival was pulled off the air, Roseanne Barr is hitting the road for a new comedy tour with Andrew Dice Clay.
Barr shared a promo poster for the "Mr. and Mrs. America" tour on Instagram Sunday, which features her wearing a Statue of Liberty crown and Clay wearing an Uncle Sam top hat.
“On sale next week,” she captioned it.
Barr and Clay have known each other for years; they performed together at the Laugh Factory in Las Vegas earlier this year.
This tour marks Barr's first official project since the Roseanne reboot was canceled by ABC. The cancellation came after Barr posted a controversial tweet likening former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett to an “ape.”
The rest of the Roseanne cast went on to star in the spin-off series, The Conners.
Clay was most recently seen in A Star Is Born, playing the father of Lady Gaga's character, Ally.

Though she’s been married to screenwriterMarc Silverstein since 2007, the actress and TV host decided to hold a wedding-style bash at the popular wedding venue Flora’s Farms in San Jose del Cabo. She even wore a flowy white dress for the occasion.
“I decided I wanted to throw myself a destination wedding (to myself) for my 40th at one of my favorite places in the world,” Philipps wrote on Instagram.
She added, “This was, without question, one of the greatest, most fun, and beautiful nights of my life. Thank you thank you thank you to all of my friends and family who made this weekend the best of all time.”
Among the celebrity guests who jetted to Cabo for the affair were Elizabeth Banks, Colin Hanks, Retta and Girls writer Jenni Konner.
There was food, drinking, dancing and even a surprise flash mob of Busy lookalikes, all dressed in her signature "Mr. Nightgown" and pink-haired wigs.
“I’m obsessed with flash mobs!” she said in her Instagram Story, calling it the “best surprise of all time!”
Walt Disney Studios(NEW YORK) -- Woody, Buzz and all your old favorites are back for Toy Story 4, the latest installment in the Disney-Pixar franchise, which opened in first place this weekend. This time around there are also new favorites to love -- including the DIY trash-turned-toy Forky, voiced byTony Hale, and carnival prize stuffed animals Ducky and Bunny, voiced by Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, respectively.
While fans turned out in droves to the see the film this weekend, Keegan-Michael Key says that as a voice actor in the film, he had a very different viewing experience when he finally got to see his character come to life.
“It was really fulfilling and very satisfying to go, ‘Oh, oh yeah!’ Like, everybody else around you might be laughing but you're going, ‘Now I get it. Now I see what you were doing,’” he tells ABC Radio.
Hale, meanwhile, loved that he got the chance to see the film with his 13-year-old daughter.
“The cool thing is she's not able to see a lot of the work that I do,” Hale tells ABC Radio. “I mean she's not gonna be able to see Veep until she's late middle age. So, you know, we can enjoy this together.”
And kids all over can enjoy Forky, Ducky and the whole gang in actual toy form, as tie-in merchandise. Hale says that part is surreal.
“It's one of those wake-up times where I'm like, ‘Oh, yeah, I am in Toy Story. This is not some kind of dream,’” he says. “'Cause I saw when we were in Orlando, all these kids were carrying around Forkys …so it's neat to see it kind of live out in these kids' lives. It's pretty exciting.”
Walt Disney Television/Jeff Neira(NEW YORK) -- Nik Wallenda, the so-called "King of the highwire," successfully traversed a 1,300-foot-long cable suspended 25 stories above street level over New York's legendary Times Square Sunday night, joined by his sister, Lijana, in her first performance since she fell 30 feet off a tightrope and was critically injured in 2017.
The walk was televised live Sunday night on ABC in a special entitled, Highwire Live in Times Square with Nik Wallenda.
Nik and Lijana met at the middle of the wire, which was roughly the width of a cork, at which point Lijana had to lower herself a sit on the wire so Nik could step over his sister, after which Lijana had to stand up again on the wire so that each could continue the walk. A particularly tense moment came as Nik had to temporarily unhook Lijana’s harness for the bypass.
The two talked to each other constantly along the way, while Nik offered Lijana encouragement, and she sang spiritual songs to help calm her nerves.
Nik, who finished before Lijana, raced over from One Times Square to greet her when she completed her walk at Two Times Square. The entire stunt took a little over 36 minutes to complete.
Disney/Pixar(NEW YORK) -- Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4 topped the weekend box office with a an estimated $118 million debut -- a franchise high, topping Toy Story 3's $110.3 million opening back in 2010. However, as has been the case with most sequels of late, it opened well below the $140 to $200 Disney had projected.
That said, Toy Story 4 -- featuring the voices of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key and Keanu Reeves -- posted the fourth-largest animated opening ever. It also notched the third-largest weekend opening of the year, while giving Disney the top four openings of 2019.
Overseas, Toy Story 4 grabbed an estimated $120 million, for a $238 million global debut.
Landing in second place was the second of this week's debuts, Child's Play, a remake of the classic 1988 horror flick of the same name, featuring Mark Hamill as the voice of the killer doll Chucky and a live-action performance from Aubrey Plaza. It delivered an estimated $14 million domestically, right at the low end of pre-relaese expectations.
Disney's Aladdin held on to third place in its fifth week of release, earning an estimated $12.2 million and bringing its totals stateside to just below $288 million. The film's overseas tally now stands at $522 million, with its worldwide gross now standing at around $810 million.
Disney is the parent company of Pixar and ABC News.
The week's other major release, Anna, starring Russian model/actress Sasha Luss in her first big role, alongside Luke Evans and Helen Mirren, failed to crack the top 10, delivering an estimated $3.5 million.
Men in Black: International fell from first to fourth place in its second week of release, grabbing an estimated $10.75 million. The Secret Life of Pets 2 rounded out the top five with an estimated $10.3 million.
In limited release, Wild Rose earned an estimated $56,183 from four theaters.
Here are the top 10 movies from Friday through Sunday, with estimated domestic box office earnings:
1. Toy Story 4, $118 million 2. Child’s Play, $14 million 3. Aladdin, $12.2 million 4. Men in Black International, $10.75 million 5. Secret Life of Pets 2, $10.3 million 6.

Walt Disney Television/Jeff Neira(NEW YORK) -- In 2012, high-wire artist Nik Wallenda walked across Niagara Falls. In 2013, he walked across the Grand Canyon. But Sunday night, he'll face the scariest challenge of all: walking across New York City.
More specifically, Nik will be walking on a 1,300-foot-long cable suspended 25 stories above street level across New York's legendary Time Square. He'll be joined by his sister,Lijana, in her first performance since she fell 30 feet off a tightrope in 2017.
"She'll come out to the middle [of the wire], she'll sit down, we'll meet there," Nik told ABC News. "I'll then step over her and then she'll get back up and she'll walk to one side, I'll walk to the other."
Why Times Square? Nik told ABC News, "Because it's Times Square! No one in the world's ever walked a wire over Times Square...and to be honest, the distractions of Times Square were a fascination to me."
"The key to wire walking is not getting distracted," he said at a press conference on the top of 1 Times Square, the location of the New Year's Eve ball drop. "Every distraction you can imagine is right down there. So to me, it was about pushing myself to be better at what I do."
"There are a lot of distractions...the stability of the wire, the fact that my sister's at the other end coming towards me....there's definitely a lot going on," he added. "More than I've ever had to deal with in my entire career."
Also distracting? The wire he's walking on is thin. Really thin.
"It's a little smaller than my thumb...very close to the size of a quarter," Nik says.
Highwire Live in Times Square with Nik Wallenda airs live Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
Freeform/Lorenzo Bevilaqua(NEW YORK) -- Eline Powell, the star of Freeform’s mermaid thriller Siren, will be making a splash at the 37th annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade in New York City on Saturday.
This year marks the Belgian actress’ first time at the parade and she’ll be riding a special Siren-themed float. She’s still deciding what she’ll be wearing to the celebration, which is known for its wild costumes and artistic expression.
“This is the best part about any community parade kind of thing, it's the creativity that comes out,” Powell tells ABC Radio. “I'm obviously so keen to see what people dress up like. But, you know, to draw that to a bigger line, it's also to see what their interpretation of mermaid is.”
Maybe she’ll even hit the beach at Coney Island after the parade is over. Powell says that playing the fierce mermaid Ryn on Siren hasn’t made her sick of the water -- it’s only made her more inclined to take a beach vacation.
“At this point in time, I’m still like, ‘Does it have a beach? Does it have a sea or kind of place I can swim in?’ Otherwise I’m not too interested at the moment,” she laughs. “So it’s still a really big part of my life.”
Siren, currently in its second season and recently renewed for a third, airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on Freeform.
Jim Spellman/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- If you're at all familiar with comic Jim Gaffigan's stand-up material, you know he's got a lot of jokes about being the father of five kids. But he's putting a new spin on his reputation as a devoted family man with his current film role as a polygamist in the comedy Being Frank.
In fact, Gaffigan tells ABC Radio that playing a polygamist is what intrigued him.
"Being a guy who's married to two women and obviously they don't know each other is a really selfish, horrible thing to do," he says. "And so I wanted the challenge of making that guy human and possibly likable."
In Being Frank, Gaffigan's son by one wife accidentally discovers his dad's other family, and uses the knowledge to blackmail him. Gaffigan says playing the role was also an eye-opener for him, in terms of discovering how common polygamy apparently is.
"You know, at every screening, someone raises their hand and they're like, 'my next-door neighbor at the funeral of the dad, they discovered they had another family'," Gaffigan reveals. "And by the way...I met someone who in their town they had someone who had seven families."
Gaffigan, who's been married to actress, writer and producer Jeannie Gaffigan for 16 years, jokes to ABC Radio that he has "24 families," before confessing, "I can't even handle one family. I don't know how someone handles two."
Disney/Pixar(NEW YORK) -- The almost 10-year wait is over -- Disney/Pixar's Toy Story 4 is officially in theaters this weekend, and one of the new characters getting the most attention is a spork named Forky, voiced by Tony Hale.
Hale tells ABC Radio that Forky is having an existential crisis in the film, because he doesn't think of himself as a toy.
"He's like, listen, I was given this name, I made a toy. I don't know what's happening," explains Hale. I'm a spork and I was made for chili, and that's it. And you go to the trash."
The film settles that issue, as well as another burning question: Why is his name Forky, and not Sporky?
"There's actually another character that's like, 'But he's a spork.' So it's definitely acknowledged," assures Hale.
The Veep actor appreciates all the love, but he thinks he and Toy Story 4's other voice actors are just a "small piece of the pie."
"All the artists and directors and animators that put in so many hours of work in this -- that's the piece of the pie that should get the attention because they're the ones that have created the story and the vision," he says.
Adds Hale, "I mean, it's like eye candy, this movie is so visually stunning. So they're the ones that are really responsible for all that."
So what was Hale's favorite toy/character growing up?
"Scooter from The Muppet Show," says Hale. "He was a nerd like me. He had glasses like me and I was convinced he had asthma like me."

Marvel Studios(LOS ANGELES) -- As rumors continue to swirl about what the sequel to Ryan Coogler's Black Panther will entail, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is shutting down the early report that Michael B. Jordan's character Erik Killmonger will officially be revived.
In an interview with BET, Feige says the rumor that Jordan will make a return in the sequel is pure "speculation."
"[It’s] pure rumor and speculation because Mr. [Ryan] Coogler is just only in recent weeks sitting down at his keyboard and beginning to outline the movie," Feige said.
"It's early," he continued. "Nothing is set yet in any way that far because Mr. Coogler [is] sitting down and will share it with [Black Panther producer] Nate Moore and myself in coming weeks."
As previously reported, in January Black Panther star Angela Bassett's husband, Courtney B. Vance, told Entertainment Tonight that the entire cast was returning for Black Panther 2.
"Everyone will be there, including Michael B. [Jordan]" Vance had said.
Although Vance didn't offer any specifics, the revelation left fans scratching their heads. In the Oscar-winning film, Jordan's villainous character Killmonger was mortally wounded after an epic battle with T'Challa in their native Wakanda. T'Challa offered him aid, but Killmonger famously chose to die, rather than live a life imprisoned like his "ancestors."
Production on Black Panther 2 is scheduled to begin in late 2019 early 2020.
Photo by Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images for Disney(LOS ANGELES) -- Former That '70s Show costars Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have been married since July of 2015, and are still going strong...despite a new In Touch cover article declaring: "It's Over."
That was news to them, and Kunis sarcastically read the story's cover to her hubby on Instagram.
"Babe: what's happening?" Kutcher asks her, looking into the camera.
"It's over between us," Kunis deadpans, holding up the article on her phone to the camera.
"It's over between us?" Kutcher says, in mock concern.
"Yeah. I 'felt suffocated,'" she says, quoting the magazine's cover.
"You felt suffocated?!" Kutcher says. "Oh, I was just so overbearing!"
Kunis adds, "Also, I took the kids."
"You took the kids!?" Kutcher exclaims sarcastically.
"And you had a very dark secret exposed," his wife says.
"What was the dark secret?" he asks. When Kunis says she doesn't know, Kutcher adds, "It must have been really dark."
Captioning the video, Kutcher says, "I guess it's over @intouchweekly" adding, "have fun selling magazines this week. Maybe next week my wife will be having twins. For the third time. But who's counting."
In reality, the couple has two children, Wyatt, four, and Dimitri, two.
The hysterical video was immediately liked by the couple's celebrity pals, some no stranger to similar tabloid rumors. "This is amazing," Demi Lovato replied. "#fakenews," noted Rumor Willis.
"DAMMIT!!! I was gonna take a run at [Mila]," commented Dax Shepard, who's married to Kristen Bell.
