Promo: ‘The Simpsons' Lego episode
And the plot is quite meta.
In Goosebumps, upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series. It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange… he is a prisoner of his own imagination – the monsters that his books made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town, it’s suddenly up to Stine, Zach, and Hannah to get all of them back in the books where they belong.
Ari Graynor did not want to be a TV star. The lead in CBS’s Bad Teacher said she simply had no desire to do television. So what happened?
"I mean, for years I said I didn’t want to do television. It was just a hard ‘no.’ I didn’t want to read anything, it didn’t matter what it was, it was just ‘no,’" Graynor told E! News. "And then last year, for whatever reason, I decided to just be open to the idea. I wasn’t going out looking for it, but I just said I’ll see what’s around."
With early roles on The Sopranos, Fringe and other guest star work before heading to the big screen with roles in films such as For a Good Time, Call…, The Sitter and What’s Your Number?, Graynor said she was worried about being stuck and bored with a character…until she met her Bad Teacher character, Meredith Davis.
