One of Saturday Night Live's longest-tenured cast members is being called upon to replace SNL's longest-serving employee. In August, SNL announcer Don Pardo passed away at the age of 96. Pardo had introduced the cast nearly every season since the sketch comedy show kicked off in 1975. With the 40th season of Saturday Night Live set to premiere on September 27th, producer Lorne Michaels has recruited Darrell Hammond, a member of the SNL cast from 1995 to 2009, to take over in the announcer role, the New York Times reports.
During his 14 years on SNL, »
Producer Lorne Michaels announced Thursday that "SNL" vet Darrell Hammond would be the new voice of the program, following Pardo's 39-season tenure. Hammond, himself a longtime fixture at "SNL" following 14 seasons -- the most for any cast member in the show's history -- will make his second "Saturday Night Live" debut when the show returns for its 40th season later this month.
Hammond had actually filled in for Pardo several times over the years when the announcer was sick with laryngitis (including one memorable episode with James Van Der Beek, which we've embedded below). But Michaels was quick to say that Hammond wouldn't simply be doing a Pardo impression this time around.
"I just knew it wouldn't be anybody who sounded like Don or replicated him, »

CBS is getting a great cast lined up for their latest CSI franchise show, CSI: Cyber. The 90s stud that all girls loved, Luke Perry will be returning to TV on the show. His character has been announced as Nick Dalton, a former FBI agent who finds himself with deep secrets. However, he was in line to run the agency in DC before changes were made. His role is currently slated to be a recurring role. He will be joining Patricia Arquette, James Van Der Beek, Peter MacNicol and others on the mid-season replacement.
This is exciting news as I do love the franchise. But I also adore seeing them line up a juicy cast. This should drum up a lot of interest for the show that will likely premier as a mid-season replacement. CBS is making sure to carve it out the best that they can in order to promise success. »

As the producer of "In Treatment," "Boardwalk Empire" and "Entourage," Mark Wahlberg knows what it takes to be successful on the small screen. And now, he's taking one of his own movies and developing it for a brand new series. His forgotten about 2007 action thriller "Shooter," directed by Antoine Fuqua, is now being turned into an episodic drama for TNT. No word yet on the plot details, but we presume they won't be too far off from the movie about a U.S. Marine Scout sniper who gets framed up for murder and has to go on the run. [Deadline] The unlikely trio of James van der Beek, Bret Easton Ellis and Roger Avary are back together. They upended the "Dawson's Creek" star's image with the 2002 effort "The Rules Of Attraction," and now they're headed together to the U.K. for "Post Empire."

Everyone always talks about The Fast & The Furious when discussing Paul Walker. I get it. Those movies are all kinds of loveable and awesome, but for me, the greatness of Walker always starts and ends with Varsity Blues, the single greatest raunch comedy ever made about whipped cream bikinis and quarterback battles in Texas. It.s goofy, obnoxious, over-the-top and way too much fun to be ignored. The IMDb page and common sense might tell you James Van Der Beek is the star as backup quarterback Mox Moxon, but for me, the film has always started and ended with the handsomeness of Paul Walker.s first string quarterback, Florida State recruit Lance Harbor. He.s so good-natured and hilariously dumb that he makes me smile every single time I watch the movie. So, in honor of what would have been Paul Walker.s 41st birthday, let.s look back at »
Looks like Joey has beaten Dawson to the director's chair: Katie Holmes will make her directorial debut with All We Had, an adaptation of the Annie Weatherwax novel about a penniless mother and daughter's adventures in pre-crash America. (We haven't read it, but it sounds like Waitress meets Anywhere But Here.) The script will be written by Josh Boone, who directed The Fault in Our Stars. So: There will probably be plenty of crying. James Van Der Beek, meanwhile, is about to star in CSI: Cyber, coming to CBS this fall. »

The Als Ice Bucket Challenge shows no signs of slowing down. Over the weekend, dozens of celebrities—including Jennifer Lopez, Nina Dobrev and James Van Der Beek—poured buckets of ice water over their heads to raise awareness for Lou Gehrig's disease. Many famous participants also donated $100 or more to fund amyotrophic lateral sclerosis research projects. About 30,000 Americans now have the disease, which attacks nerve cells and eventually leads to total paralysis, although the mind remains sharp. Life expectancy is typically two to five years from the time of diagnosis. The association said Sunday it's received $13.3 million in donations since July 29, compared with $1.7 million during the same »

The Fine Bros have come up with another new spin for their React format, and it involves guest stars who have established themselves on traditional media platforms. On August 14th, Benny and Rafi Fine will debut "TV, Film, and Sports Stars React", a special edition of their most popular series. This will be the fifth version of React (or the sixth, if you could their "Cats React" April Fools joke), joining Kids, Teens, Elders, and YouTubers React. The trailer features ten guests who, in typical React fashion, will be subjected to whatever viral video The Fine Bros choose to show them. The ten guests in the trailer are Maria Menounos, Sarah Hyland, Nick Cannon, Tony Hawk, Emily Osment, Aimee Teagarden, Debby Ryan, Chris Hardwick, Pete Holmes, and James Van Der Beek; from the looks of it, the video they will react to will be a bizarre one.
