In case you're not in the know or you've been too busy getting your own service off the ground, NBCUniversal is officially launching their own streaming service later this year called Peacock. Yes, that's also the name of a large, colorful animal – but it's also been the mascot for NBC since just after the […]
Del Close and Charna Halpern, revered for their hand in honing the talents of comedy luminaries like Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Bill Murray, Tina Fey, Mike Meyers, Amy Poehler, Chris Farley, Jon Favreau, Adam McKay, Stephen Colbert, and Jordan Peele will get the attention they've deserved for helping to create almost 30 years' worth of stars in an upcoming biography […]
Amazon Studios may have found a way to single-handidly ("single-streamidly"???) employ every working actor in show business today with new project Modern Love. Based on the popular The New York Times column about love and human connection, the eight-episode half-hour romantic comedy anthology explores the many facets of love – including sexual, romantic, familial, platonic, and […]
It's the most wonderful time of the year… It's Halloween-ish, people! Which means during the season when visions of ghouls, goblins, "baby deer" in NYC's Penn Station at 2 am (some of you will get that), and odd selections of "sexy BLANK" costumes dance in our heads, it only helps the spirit of the holidays […]
As Saturday Night Live alum Tina Fey readies to host this weekend's season finale (her sixth time hosting) of NBC's famed sketch comedy series (with Nicki Minaj as musical guest), now seems as good a time as any for Fey to reflect back on her career. And what better way to do that than with animation… […]
Though the Tribeca Film Festival is known for (obviously) being a film festival, the 2018 edition opened with a touching documentary on an influential female comedian best known for her ground-breaking work on the small screen. Director/producer Lisa D'Apolito's Love, Gilda premiered at the Beacon Theater as the kick-off to the popular film festival, spotlighting the […]
It's mid-season series premiere time, and ABC is hoping it has a new trick up its sleeve (spoiler: probably won't be the last magic pun) in action/drama-series-with-a-twist Deception. From the creative minds of writer/executive producer Chris Fedak (Chuck) and executive producers Greg Berlanti, Martin Gero, and Sarah Schechter, Deception takes one of those righteously cool concepts […]
Now that the second-longest continuous writer at Marvel Comics, Brian Michael Bendis, has signed an exclusive deal with DC Comics, everything he ever said anywhere on the internet about DC Comics is up for discussion. Including this great post on his Tumblr from earlier in the year, when asked about the comparative fighting abilities of Batman […]
With the recent release of the third season of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3, the show is expanding the characters in new directions. Netflix has released this new featurette featuring the cast talking about the changes each of their characters go through. This includes Ellie Kemper (Kimmy Schmidt), Tituss Burgess (Titus Andromedon), Carol Kane (Lillian […]
In theory, professional wrestlers should be some of the best actors in the world. When people find out that I am a giant wrestling fan, the first thing always said to me is, of course, "You know it's fake, right?" A little part of me dies inside as I give my stock answer: Yes, I […]
Legendary comics grandpa Stan Lee has cameoed in just about everything, from virtually every Marvel superhero movie, to safety videos at theme park attraction rides. Lee's latest cameo is in Honda's CRV commercial that aired during the Super Bowl, showing animated yearbook photos of celebrities including Lee, Tina Fey, Robert Redford, Amy Adams, Magic Johnson, […]
Last night on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, we found out that Margot Robbie of the upcoming Suicide Squad movie has taken up tattooing and even gave members of the cast / crew tattoos. The problem being that on one of the tattoos she misspelled a word. Where many of them got the word […]
The new Amy Poehler and Tina Fey comedy Sisters is pleasantly diverting, but missing a lot of the spark that makes the duo fun to watch. It is unclear why the movie fails to pop or why the biggest laughs come from cameo appearances, but comedy is terribly brittle and enough tiny missteps can lead […]
In Paramount's upcoming film, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Tiny Fey plays a reporter embedded in Kabul during US operations in Afghanistan and Pakistan. From the trailer, drinking, sex, explosions and gunplay ensue. [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxAcIWDi8ps[/youtube] The film is scheduled for release on March 4th.
I'm not much for television comedies. Most of them are sitcoms and watching people do stupid things in contrived situations is not my idea of funny… so when I see something that genuinely makes me laugh, I get excited. Watching the first trailer for Netflix's The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt got me laughing quite a few […]
This Is Where I Leave You originally had a different director (Adam Shankman) and a whole different cast around Jason Bateman when it was about to start production the first time around, and then for some reason, it all fell apart. But it didn't take long for Shawn Levy to jump in to direct and […]
This guy knows Kermit the Frog so I definitely wanted to be in with him.
Gonzo gets his jumpsuit on.
But it is all has to wait for a certain news-reporting frog.
She'll join Kermit, Piggy, Walter, Ricky Gervais, Gonzo, Animal and all the rest.
