Above Average’s New Content Slate Begins With Jeff Goldblum

11 March 2014 12:52 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Above Average continues to churn out new series at a rapid pace. The YouTube channel run by Saturday Night Live production company Broadway Video has debuted a new content slate, which includes three new series. The first new series to debut is Monkey Love, an animated comedy about a male chimpanzee who masquerades as a human woman in order to find love. The first man on his docket is a dopey dad played by Jeff Goldblum, and future guests include Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, and Tim Meadows. As you might have guessed from the description, Monkey Love is, um, unusual. The other two entries in Above Average's new content slate play things much closer to the belt. The Idiot's Guide To Smart People is also animated; it teaches the 'ignorant' among us how to talk politics, religion, and music with the so-called 'smart' people of the world. Naturally, The Idiot's »

The Return of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” “Piers Morgan Live” Cancelled, and Ronan Farrow Debuts

News

The NBC pilot Marry Me was on my radar because it comes from Happy Endings creator David Caspe with Casey Wilson and Ken Marino starring. Now, Tim Meadows has joined the cast as one of Wilson’s gay dads. Is it possible for Caspe to create a gay character as loved as Max turned out to be?

Comic Book Resources has the first look at Arrow‘s Suicide Squad, which will include Shrapnel (Sean Maher). Considering the Squad’s comic book history, there’s a good chance that will be the last we see of Shrapnel. I’m not sure how I feel about that. Shrapnel was the kind of villain I wouldn’t mind seeing killed off (okay most of Arrow‘s villains are that despicable) but that would also mean less Sean Maher.

Tim Meadows Cast As Casey Wilson’s Dad

21 February 2014 2:30 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Tim Meadows has joined the cast of Marry Me, a single-camera sitcom from Happy Endings creator David Caspe. The show stars Casey Wilson and Ken Marino as a newly engaged couple who realize marriage may be a little much for them. According to Deadline, Meadows will play one of Wilson's gay dads. Meadows is only 19 years older than Wilson, so it's sort of a stretch to see him as dad-age in relation to her — plus, Marino is 12 years older than she is, putting the husband-father age gap at the creepily narrow seven years. »

Watch Pre-'snl' Chris Farley and Bob Odenkirk Do 'Matt Foley' in 1990

19 February 2014 9:15 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Just two weeks after Rolling Stone declared Matt Foley: Motivational Speaker the greatest Saturday Night Live sketch of all time, Chicago's esteemed Second City unearthed a fantastic performance from 1990 starring the sketch's co-writers Bob Odenkirk and a 26-year-old Chris Farley, who had just been announced as one of SNL's newest cast members. Consider this VHS recording the comedy version of Bob Dylan's Bootleg Series.

Chris Farley’s Matt Foley Was Livin’ in a Van Down by the River Years Before He Appeared on Saturday Night Live

18 February 2014 9:03 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Motivational Speaker Matt Foley was arguably Chris Farley's most famous character.  For those who aren't familiar with Foley, he was a loud, boisterous, belt-straightening screamer who would try to scare kids straight even though he was "livin' in a van down by the river!"  Like many Saturday Night Live performers, Farley came out of The Second City improv comedy troupe, and it appears he had the character in his pocket years before he brought it to SNL.  A tape-recorded video has been uploaded to YouTube, and although the video was taken three-and-a-half years before Farley joined SNL, it shows an almost fully-formed Matt Foley.  After watching the video, the character is just as funny now as he was back in the 90s. Hit the jump to check out the video, which also includes Bob Odenkirk and Tim Meadows. »

Watch an Early, Live Version of Chris Farley’s ‘Matt Foley, Motivational Speaker’ Sketch

18 February 2014 8:45 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Chris Farley's river-van-living motivational speaker Matt Foley is easily one of SNL's most iconic characters and, like many of the show's characters, he got his start on the Second City stage. Below, you can watch the sketch in its original form. Taped in 1990 – three years before it appeared on SNL – it features Tim Meadows in the David Spade role and Bob Odenkirk, who also wrote the sketch, in the Phil Hartman role. There are some differences (namely the hipness of the parents), but it's amazing to see just how similar the sketch is. Time is a flat circle, so Matt Foley is, was, and always will be living in a van down by the river. »

Before Matt Foley was a self-pitying motivational speaker on “Saturday Night Live,” he screamed at hapless teenagers on a Second City stage.

Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Seyfried: Mean Girls cast 10 years on - then & now

6 February 2014 8:43 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Lindsay Lohan has reunited with former Mean Girls co-star Daniel Franzese as the cult film approaches its 10th anniversary.

We take a rather fond and fetch trip down memory lane to see what the comedy's central stars - including Lacey Chabert and Lizzy Caplan - have gone on to do a decade later:

Lacey Chabert

Lacey Chabert plays runt of The Plastics litter and Toaster Strudel princess Gretchen Wieners.

The 31-year-old star, who famously played Claudia Salinger in cult series Party of Five from 1994 to 2000, has also appeared in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past with Matthew McConaughey and provided the voice of Family Guy's Meg Griffin before Mila Kunis took over.

Tim Meadows

Tim Meadows stars as democratic principal Mr Duvall, who attempts to restore calm when pages of the infamous Burn book rear their ugly heads.

Following the film's release, 53-year-old comedy writer and actor Meadows has starred in »

'Mean Girls' Reunion! Lindsay Lohan & Daniel Franzese, Together Again (Photo)

6 February 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's a "Mean Girls" reunion! Well, a mini-reunion, anyway.

Stars Lindsay Lohan (Cady Heron) and Daniel Franzese (Damian) snapped a photo together, and Lohan posted it to Instagram on Wednesday, filling our hearts with nostalgia and magic and all things too gay to function.

There's nothing we'd love to see more than a full-blown "Mean Girls" reunion, and this photo does nothing but spark that hope all the more -- especially since April marks the movie's 10-year anniversary.

Seriously, we'd eat 100 Kalteen bars if it meant we could see Tina Fey, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Seyfried, Rachel McAdams, Tim Meadows, Amy Poehler, Lizzy Caplan, Lacey Chabert, and Daniel Franzese reminisce about burn books and neck braces. Until then, this photo will have to do.

For Super Bowl week and with the 2014 Winter Olympics right around the corner, "Saturday Night Live" aired a special, hosted by the soon-departing Seth Meyers, of the best sports-themed sketches from the show's history.

Sasheer Zamata Joins '.SNL' –. First Black Female In Cast In 6 Years

6 January 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Sasheer Zamata separated herself from the competition in Saturday Night Live’s grueling auditions process and will join the cast later this month as the first African-American female in six years.

Sasheer Zamata Joining 'SNL'

Zamata’s training in sketch comedy includes a number of years with New York City’s Upright Citizen’s Brigade. The University of Virginia grad, who holds a degree in drama, has been with the company since 2009. For Upright Citizen’s Brigade, Zamata hosts a weekly variety show called School Night and performs improv comedy with both Doppelganger and Bucky on Harold Night, according to the bio on her website.

Zamata, who says she performs “stand up wherever I can,” is probably best known for her new webseries, Pursuit of Sexiness. “Best friends and troublemakers Nicky and Sheer are broke, single, and (adorably!) self-absorbed,” reads the description of Zamata series with Nicole Byer. »
