In my apparent continuing quest to interview all the great voice actors living today (because they are the most fun, okay?), I now bring you my interview with the talented and Emmy-winning Maurice Lamarche, a.k.a. The Brain, Squit, Kif Kroker, Morbo, Lrrr, several Futurama robots, Dr. Egon Spengler, Dizzy Devil, Yosemite Sam, Mr. Freeze, Victor von Doom, General Var Suthra, Mortimer Mouse, Chief Quimby, and more.
It was a real pleasure to speak with Maurice, who I’ve been listening to in various guises since I was a wee thing (I was a big Inspector Gadget fan as a child; and then with Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, and Futurama being amongst my other favorite shows through the years, I guess I’ve pretty much been listening to Maurice all my life!). It was also great to see him do many of his excellent voices and impressions both during the interview, »

It's been nearly a week since the "Breaking Bad" series finale aired, and while my opinion hasn't changed much from what I wrote on Sunday night, there are a few odds and ends I wanted to touch on while they're on my mind, coming up just as soon as I suggest you get a bigger knife... So the thing everyone has been asking me about for the last couple of days is the theory — first presented by Emily Nussbaum in her morning-after analysis, then taken up by both Norm MacDonald and Joyce Carol Oates on their Twitter feeds — that »

Since "Breaking Bad" finished its run on Sunday, we've had plenty of other things to talk about: Miley Cyrus' stuff, some junk about the government shutdown or whatever, and of course, Spanish "Breaking Bad." Yet for some reason, people seem obsessed with talking about one of the most haunting, perfectly realized TV finales of all time.
Who are these people? Comedian Norm Macdonald, who seems set to continue our long national nightmare of fascinating and plausible "Breaking Bad" ending theories with one that posits... Well, spoilers after this point.
So remember when Walt is in the car at the top of the episode? MacDonald (as well as Emily Nussbaum, a writer for some sort of tabloid called The New Yorker) posits on Twitter that the late Heisenberg never made it out alive, and in fact the rest of the episode is nothing but a dream as »

It seems former SNL alum Norm McDonald has some very distinct feelings about how Breaking Bad ended. While we may all think that Walter White (Spoiler Alert) was shot and killed, it seems Norm has a completely different theory about the how the whole thing went down. Granted, in Norm’s version, Walter White still dies, [&hellip

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including The Comedy Central Roast of James Franco, Covert Affairs, The Daily Show and Burn Notice!
1 | How, how, how will Continuum‘s Kiera possibly escape her season-ending dilemma? And wasn’t Young Alec acting a bit irrationally in co-opting the device to do his own selfish bit of time travel?
2 | Did Walt’s reference to “Beaver and What’s-His-Name” make you hope that Breaking Bad brings back Jesse’s stoner pals at least one »

Hulu recently conducted a poll to determine the best Celebrity Jeopardy sketch from "Saturday Night Live," because what else are they supposed to do while the show is off the air?
The winner, perhaps unsurprisingly, is the classic sketch featuring Will Ferrell's beleagured Alex Trebek going head to head with French Stewart (Jimmy Fallon), Burt Reynolds, aka Turd Ferguson (Norm Macdonald) and the bullying Sean Connery (Darrell Hammond).
Since this Hulu poll is just an excuse to watch old "SNL" clips, and it doesn't get much better than this one, we recommend revisiting this classic. »

Title: Grown Ups 2 Director: Dennis Dugan Starring: Just about all of Adam Sandler’s friends. Here’s some advice if you’re going to see Grown Ups 2: Stroll into the movie about 8 minutes late. If heed this advice, you’ll witness 94 minutes that showcase a semi-return to form for Adam Sandler and friends. And by friends, I mean everyone (from a Colin Quinn sighting to a surprising larger-than-cameo Shaquille O’Neal) you expect to be in this is, save for Rob Schneider, Kevin Nealon, and Norm MacDonald. Dennis Dugan, Sandler’s directing choice for the first installment (and many other failed Happy Madison products that have splattered on the screen the last [ Read More ]

According to a recent lawsuit brought about by the widow of Anthony Lazzarino, who in the early 1980s operated a company that held the rights to the Robert Ludlum novel "The Bourne Identity," the super-spy immortalized by Matt Damon was very nearly portrayed by... Burt Reynolds.
The details of the lawsuit are kind of boring, tracking the proposed film's development through Orion Pictures, then Warner Bros, all the while looking at the percentage points that Lazzarino was supposedly owed. But please, can we just take a minute to think about Burt Reynolds as Jason Bourne?
Just imagine: instead of Damon's believable amnesiac assassin, we could have gotten Reynolds, probably with a mustache, wig, and brittle line delivery that would have made the character's existential search for answers sound like he was standing in line at the Dmv.
Reynolds is best known for his roles in the "Smokey and the Bandit" movies, »

Last night, YouTube kicked off its Comedy Week with a 'Big Live Comedy Show' starring dozens of funny people from both new and traditional media. Promos used the tagline "this better be funny" to promote the event. Unfortunately, the vast majority of the kickoff show very clearly wasn't. Here are six reasons why what should've been a laugh fest (or at least a fake laugh fest) was a weak start to Comedy Week: This particular mix of new and traditional media didn't gel. During the pre-show, hosts Jenny Slate and Kassem G invited the legendary Norm Macdonald to join them. The former SNL cast member proceeded to run through a list of online creators he had clearly never heard of. When Slate praised Macdonald by calling him "one of the best," he sarcastically quipped "well, I'm no Harley Morenstein." And yet, when Morenstein appeared later in the show (alongside the spectacularly unfunny Todd Glass, »

Norm MacDonald, best known for his time on Saturday Night Live (when, among other pursuits, he introduced the world to Turd Ferguson), has begun to disseminate his podcast on YouTube. The comedian's Norm MacDonald Live show has joined forces with the Video Podcast Network, which will offer live video for each episode. The first installment features Bob Einstein as the guest. Though Norm (and the video's title) introduce him as Super Dave Osborne, he'll always be Marty Funkhouser and Larry Mittleman to me. No matter how you associate the comic actor (who is also Albert Brooks' brother), it's easy to appreciate his unique, gravelly voice and original jokes. Norm MacDonald Live joins podcasts like Adam Carolla and Big 3 Live on Video Podcast Network, which also continues to host the Animashups web series

After some stints as a writer (notably on Comedy Central’s Sports Show with Norm McDonald), he scored his own show The Ben Show, which premiered last weekend on the network.
