Courtney Love's biographer -- one of the best in the biz -- says he went through hell to write her life story ... and claims his reward was getting canned without notice, and then shortchanged on his paycheck.

Bozza -- who has written with the likes of Slash, Tommy Lee, Tracy Morgan »

Artie Lange on his inevitable 'Howard Stern' flameout: 'It ended the only way it can end'

20 April 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All due respect to "Mad TV" and "Dirty Work" fans, but for this writer Artie Lange's greatest performance will always be his eight-year run on "The Howard Stern Show." From 2001 to 2009, the gravelly-voiced comedian worked as the King of All Media's brash, no-nonsense, fan-beloved sidekick, a role that brought him his greatest career success ("It was the closest I ever felt to being a rock star") but also brought his personal demons to the fore. His stint on the show came to an abrupt and chilling end in January 2010, when Lange, at that time addicted to heroin, was hospitalized for eight months following a suicide attempt (an episode he has discussed publicly and wrote about in his 2013 memoir "Crash and Burn"). Five years on from his terrifying downward spiral, Lange has rebounded and continues to work, performing standup gigs and making guest appearances on TV shows including "Louie" and Californication. »

'Laugh Killer Laugh' Clip Starring William Forsythe | Exclusive

8 April 2015 4:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Kamal Ahmed became famous playing one half of The Jerky Boys, a duo completed by Johnny Brennan who released a number of popular prank call records throughout the 90s. In 2000, Kamal Ahmed bailed on the still-ongoing outfit, instead focusing on his acting and filmmaking career. His latest directorial effort is Laugh Killer Laugh, which puts an oddly unique and hilarious spin on the gangster genre. And we have an exclusive clip spotlighting some of the film's humor.

In Laugh Killer Laugh, popular character actor William Forsythe makes a rare turn as a leading man. He plays a jewel thief named Frank Stone, who is very deeply disturbed. He has been described as an anti-social milquetoast who finds no joy or humor in anything. Not until he awakens from a deep coma with a changed personality. Against his better judgement, he decided to take this new persona to the stage, becoming, »

10 great George Takei moments on 'Howard Stern'

24 March 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are very few celebrity guests that come on "Howard Stern" that truly feel like they could be a member of the show's staff, but from his very first appearance George Takei felt right at home with Howard, Robin, Fred, Gary and the rest. Over the last 25 years the "Star Trek" icon has been on the show dozens of times, and each time I find myself wishing that he could become a permanent fixture. His oh-so-proper diction is betrayed consistently by a naughty sensibility that makes him a true delight and game for anything that comes his way. In celebration of George's appearance on this week's show, during which he judged the name of a contest that I probably shouldn't mention here, I've rounded up ten of his greatest "Howard Stern" moments in no particular order. 1. The time "Oh My" became his catchphrase. While Takei admits he's been using the term "Oh my" for years, »

This is a show that, similar to Disney’s Wreck It Ralph, asks the question, “What do video game characters do outside of the video game?” Unlike the film however, this series focuses on an average family of video game characters known as the Smashenburns. The family is made up of father Rip, a Grand Prix race car driver from an unspecified racing game, mother Raquel, a Lara Croft type from an artifact scavenging adventure game, daughter Alice, who is an activist that sometimes goes boy-crazy, son Billy, who is trend-obsessed with becoming a rapper, and lastly Turbo, their talking purple »

Kevin Hart Creeped Out by Weepy, Terrible Comedian in Cut ‘SNL’ Skit (Video)

20 January 2015 9:31 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Artie Lange and Dave Atell make cameo appearances as fellow comedians who want nothing to do with Kyle Mooney’s character either

Perhaps it was just too awkward for broadcast. A pre-taped skit from the Kevin Hart hosted “Saturday Night Live” episode has surfaced online, featuring Kyle Mooney as a terrible comedian desperately trying to make a connection with someone in the industry.

Not only is Mooney’s character awful at stand-up, but he’s also an over-sharer and a bit of a sad sack. And after he makes a few racially clueless comments to Hart, Jay Pharoah and Michael Che, »

Let Kyle Mooney Make You Cry With This Cut SNL Short

20 January 2015 9:45 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Here's this week's unaired SNL sketch, starring Kyle Mooney as his recurring crummy stand-up comedian character, who this time bumps into Kevin Hart at a comedy club. There are cameos from Dave Attell and Artie Lange, some grotesque leather jackets, and then a genuinely jarring turn for the profoundly sad. It's definitely a strange one — the kind of short you're glad they tried, but ultimately, cutting it for time seems like the right choice. Aired or not, if the great Hollywood decision machine is looking for a sign that it should cast Mooney in a serious role ... this is the sign. »
