Will Ferrell Has Jerry Seinfeld in Stitches on the Finale of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee

4 February 2016 7:08 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Despite being a well-known actor, Will Ferrell admits that he actually isn't a big movie fan. On the hilarious finale of Jerry Seinfeld's web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, the two men drive around in a 1970 Plymouth Road Runner SuperBird and talk about everything from Will's family to all the films he hasn't seen (hint: there's a lot). The Daddy's Home actor even gets a few good laughs out of Jerry as he reminisces about his Saturday Night Live audition. Watch the funny video above, and then check out this amazing Will Ferrell-themed bar in NYC! »

Will Ferrell Appears on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Orders Decaf

4 February 2016 6:02 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jerry Seinfeld invited Will Ferrell to grab coffee with him in the latest episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee Wednesday, and the duo rode around in a blue1970 Plymouth SuperBird, which was perfectly fitting because Will revealed that the car's shade of blue was his "color." Jerry picked up the Daddy's Home star at a park before making their way to a Venice coffee shop. As dads will do, the two men discussed their children. Will revealed that he took his "oldest boy" to a school interview and walked away dazzled by his son's rhetoric. "He's such a good politician," Will joked. "He says things like, 'I like what your mission statement says.' In sixth grade I »

John Cleese Says That Political Correctness Has Ruined Comedy

1 February 2016 3:04 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Legendary comedian John Cleese has weighed in on the tumultuous controversy about how political correctness is spoiling comedy. He fears that oversensitivity could lead to an “Orwellian” society where ideas are not freely exchanged.

 John Cleese was the co-creator of Monty Python, the greatest comedy ensemble of all time, as well as the mastermind behind Fawlty Towers, one of the funniest sitcoms ever made. He’s experienced his share of controversy, such as the backlash he received when he and his Python partners released The Life of Brian. Now he’s wading hip-deep into another controversy.

 In an interview for the website Big Think, the 76 year old Cleese expressed his thoughts on the current state of entertainment and media where hyper-sensitive, easily offended people are ruining the party for everyone. He feels comedy is an important part of society because it points to the foibles of our culture and that »

Jerry Seinfeld Offers ‘Little Boy’ Will Ferrell Some Candy on ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’

1 February 2016 9:28 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Nothing could possibly be more fun than cruising around in a ridiculous Plymouth Superbird with Jerry Seinfeld and Will Ferrell. Lucky GoPros. Crackle dropped a new teaser for the upcoming episode of the web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” on which Seinfeld propositions Ferrell from his swing-set with some candy. The old trick works, as the “Anchorman” star accompanies his host for some coffee and baclava. Based on the 69-second clip, Ferrell hasn’t seen a decent movie in years. He also may or may not have atrial fibrillation, a common type of heart arrhythmia. One thing’s for sure: Seinfeld is still Seinfeld, »

Acura Plucks Van Halen To Strike A Chord At Super Bowl 50

28 January 2016 7:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sometimes it takes a voice like David Lee Roth’s to snare consumer attention on Super Bowl Sunday.

Acura will take to the advertising playing field of Super Bowl 50 with an ad that will use some of the iconic elements of the Van Halen song “Running with the Devil,” namely  some of Roth’s signature musical utterances and guitarist Eddie Van Halen’s trademark licks. The spot will air in the first quarter of the game, slated to be broadcast on CBS on February 7, and tout the automaker’s Nsx, according to Leila Cesario, national advertising manager for the Acura unit of American Honda.

“What we are doing is taking our American super car on to the big American stage,” she said in an interview, making a reference to the industry’ s term for a high-performance sports vehicle.  The Nsx, which last appeared in the Super Bowl in a 2012 spot »

DC Weekly: What's the Deal with Shazam?

28 January 2016 5:04 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome to the DC Weekly, where every week we cover the land of DC comics, TV, and movies. Be it random bits of news, TV show reactions, or miscellaneous reviews, editorials, or speculation, you can be sure to get your DC fix here!

This Week will only contain a single editorial from me. I bring into question a character who was missing from last week’s Dawn Of The Justice League TV special.

What’S The Deal With Shazam?

I’ve had a bit of a DC hangover from all the goods we got last week. I’m not complaining in the slightest. After all, this is the kind of world I wish we lived in as a kid. But it was a lot of stuff to take in at once. For the longest time, we’ve been feeding on scraps and promises from DC and WB, but now after years of waiting, »

Neil deGrasse Tyson Drops Science on B.o.B’s Flat Earth Claims

26 January 2016 8:44 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Neil deGrasse Tyson just laid down all kinds of science on B.o.B. The Atlanta rapper recently took to Twitter to post data that he claimed showed the Earth is actually flat. Tyson, being an astrophysicist and an elementary school graduate, couldn’t let that stand in good conscience. In one tweet, B.o.B posted that if the earth was round, then the New York skyline should not be visible behind 170 feet of curved earth from nearby Bear Mountain.

Super Bowl Commercials: Why Madison Avenue Is Late To This Year’s Game

26 January 2016 8:35 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Super Bowl 50 will no doubt kick off on time, but another game that has regularly taken place in the weeks before the big event has started late.

In 2011, Volkswagen reversed years of Super Bowl advertising strategy by deciding to make a clever commercial slated to appear in the Super Bowl available on YouTube the week before the game. The spot featured a young boy marching around as Darth Vader to the strains of “The Imperial March” from “Star Wars,” and its early appearance put a hot spotlight on the effects social media can have on the national conversation, winning new notice for both the automaker and its ad agency at the time, Deutsch.

Since that moment, Super Bowl marketers have launched promotional salvos earlier and earlier. In 2013, Jaguar unleashed a “teaser” commercial that highlighted the themes it would present in Super Bowl Xlviii. Web-services company GoDaddy started calling attention to »

Netflix has given an eight-episode series order to Haters Back Off, a streaming comedy based on the YouTube character Miranda Sings, created by comedian Colleen Ballinger-Evans.

Netflix Orders Scripted Series ‘Haters Back Off’ Based on YouTube Star Miranda Sings

14 January 2016 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Netflix has given a straight-to-series order to a show based on Miranda Sings, the popular character created by YouTube star Colleen Ballinger-Evans, Variety has learned. Ballinger-Evans will star in the upcoming streaming show, titled “Haters Back Off.”

“Haters Back Off” delves into the oddball family life of Miranda Sings, an incredibly confident, totally untalented star on the rise who continues to fail upward by the power of her belief that she was born famous — it’s just no one knows it yet.

The show has landed an eight-episode order. No launch date has been set.

The project marks the first-ever scripted streaming series for a YouTube personality. While other venues have greenlit series for digital stars — E!’s late-night talk show “The Grace Helbig Show,” Hulu’s Freddie Wong docuseries “RocketJump” — Miranda Sings’ is one of the first shows that does not fall into the unscripted genre.

‘Rush Hour’ Team Grilled on Diversity, Stereotypes, Character Portrayals at TCA Panel

12 January 2016 1:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With African-American and Chinese stars, CBS’ upcoming action-comedy “Rush Hour” boasts the network’s most diverse cast to date, but on Tuesday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif., the show’s cast and producers were hounded by a reporter who questioned the series’ portrayal of diverse characters.

“When the ‘Rush Hour’ movies were out, they took criticism for being centered on two characters who were really stereotypical,” the journalist said. “Watching the pilot, I see you haven’t done much to change those archetypes. At a time where shows are really trying to have a nuanced discussion about race, these characters still feel very stereotypical to me. How are you going to try change these archetypes a little bit so that they don’t feel so rooted in these longstanding stereotypes?”

“I’m African-American, I’m a comedian and I crack jokes,” star Justin Hires responded, »

Yada, Yada, Yada: Jerry Seinfeld Kills at First Beacon Gig

8 January 2016 8:13 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jerry Seinfeld is 61. From the stage at the Beacon Theater, where the comic began his yearlong residency last night, he told the crowd that this decade was his favorite decade of life so far. The reason: He doesn't have to explain himself anymore. "When someone calls me up to do something, I just say, 'No,'" he said. He also mentioned that in his 70s, he'll refuse to answer entirely.

Of course, the co-creator of Seinfeld can do exactly as he likes, and what he likes is stand-up. With one »

'Jerry Seinfeld: The Homestand': Concert Review

If it were up to Jerry Seinfeld, neither he nor the audience would have been at the Beacon Theatre Thursday night. The veteran comedian began his show with a hilarious diatribe about how much sheer work is involved in the simple act of "going out." "It's like working two jobs," he complained. "A lot of people got pushed into this," he added, before grandly waving his arm in the direction of the auditorium and proclaiming, by way of definition, "This is out!"

Jerry Seinfeld warmed up for his year-long Beacon Theater residency during a quick set Wednesday night on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. His first installment in the monthly series at the Beacon begins Thursday, January 7th.

During Seinfeld's "tight five," he tackled American eating habits, using the larger seats at the Ed Sullivan Theater, where Late Show is hosted, as a launching point.

Jerry Seinfeld Dives Into the Metaphysical Hole That Is the Doughnut Hole on Stephen Colbert

7 January 2016 7:22 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Barack Obama's chauffeur Jerry Seinfeld has a yearlong residency coming up at the Beacon Theater in New York, so to warm up, he did a short set on Stephen Colbert last night. It's a stand-up set mostly preoccupied with food. But, of course, this is food as metaphor. From the motivational powers of eating Swanson Hungry Man TV dinners to the metaphysical crisis spurred from staring too long at a doughnut hole (a joke that he broke down for us at last year's Vulture Festival), this is food fraught with existential crisis. And really, it's just making us hungry to hit the buffet.  But the funniest bit might be his observation that anyone — Donald Trump or otherwise — who thinks they deserve to be president has to be crazy: »
