Bill Hader Returns to Saturday Night Live (Video)

12 October 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The prodigal comic returns. Wildly popular former cast member Bill Hader came back to 30 Rock on Saturday to host Saturday Night Live and, as might have been expected, there was plenty of laughter. How much, exactly? Let's look at some of the SNL highlights below. Though the crux of this bit is an extended riff on Hader's singing voice, which feels a little forced, the sequence provides an excuse for his The Skeleton Twins costar Kristen Wiig to pop up and play saxophone, while a seemingly tossed-off reference to Harvey Fierstein prompts the Tony winner himself to crash the stage. »

Bill Hader Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best and Worst Sketches

11 October 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This week’s installment of Saturday Night Live with host Bill Hader had the potential to go one of two ways.

On the optimistic side of the equation, what better choice of emcee than a beloved, eight-season vet of the show, a guy who certainly wouldn’t have any issues with the on-the-fly workings of Studio 8H?

Nevertheless, with SNL presenting its third fresh installment in a three-week period, the question loomed, would the show’s inconsistent writing staff have enough time to create memorable setups and zingers?

Thankfully, this was an instance where — despite a deplorably unfunny cold open »

'Saturday Night Live' Recap: Bill Hader Hosts; Hozier Performs

11 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Saturday Night Live’s third episode of season four featured SNL alum Bill Hader as the host and Irish singer-songwriter Hozier as the musical guest.

Cold Open

Kim Jong Un (Bobby Moynihan) slams the rumors of him having diabetes and gout from eating too much cheese in this week's cold open. He’s limping around, suffering from a broken ankle, but tap dances to prove that he’s the picture of health and then cries until he gets a juice box. Addressing his critics, he asks,"How could I be out of touch when I have the same haircut as Brad Pitt in the movie Fury?"

Opening Monologue

Hader, providing some back story, reveals that he was discovered by Megan Mullally when he was an assistant for Iron Chef America and moonlighting in a comedy show. He was then joined by his Skeleton Twins costar and fellow SNL alum Kristen Wiig, »

Recap: 'Saturday Night Live' – Bill Hader and Hozier

11 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This season of “Saturday Night Live” has been surprisingly devoid of nostalgia, something I didn’t think would happen in this, the show’s fortieth season. But with former cast member Bill Hader returning tonight, look for that to change. And honestly? That’s fine. I have no problem with the show occasionally celebrating its own history, especially since much of the current cast was there during Hader’s tenure. Look for many of Hader’s classic characters to make a comeback tonight. Will there be a Stefon appearance? One could argue (and I would argue) that the Stefon sendoff was so perfect that any future appearance of the character would dilute that moment. But since Stefon did make another appearance during Seth Meyers’ farewell, anything’s possible. Something that’s not possible but definite: I’ll be liveblogging everything that happens tonight. Also definite: Many of you will rend »

Disney's Newsies Set to Close on Broadway This August

24 June 2014 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

Disney Theatrical's record-breaking and Tony Award winning phenomenon Newsies features a score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman, choreography by Christopher Gattelli and a book by Harvey Fierstein. The stage version introduces seven brand-new songs by the original team of Menken and Feldman while keeping many of the beloved songs from the film, including ‘Carrying the Banner’, ‘Seize the Day,’ ‘King of New York’ and ‘Santa Fe.’ Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged ‘newsies,’ who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack »

Tonys: In the Thick of Awards Season, a Busy Night on the Town With Harvey Fierstein

20 May 2014 9:36 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

New York -- The evening of Monday, May 19, proved to be an unusually hectic one for New York theater legend Harvey Fierstein -- a man who is accustomed to having Mondays off -- and therefore for me, as well, since I, being a self-professed fan of Fierstein's work, had been invited to hang with him as he jumped from an uptown affair to a downtown affair and back again. How could I pass up a chance like that? The life of any Tony nominee is busy around this time of year, with the Tonys ceremony rapidly approaching. But for Fierstein, a
