Lonely Island Movie Is Called 'Conner4real,’ Targets Justin Bieber & Katy Perry, Adds Sarah Silverman, Imogen Poots, & More

16 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

That the musical goofballs The Lonely IslandAndy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer — should take their penchant for hilarious songs coupled with equally hilarious videos, and bring it to the big screen makes total sense.

Lonely Island Pic Called Conner4Real; Tim Meadows Joins Cast

19 May 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The title of The Lonely Island’s feature-length comedy has been revealed, and it’s suitably weird. Conner4Real will find the satirical musicians playing members of a broken-up boy band, who reunite when one member’s (Andy Samberg) rap album is an embarrassing, possibly career-killing bomb. Today also brings word that Tim Meadows, another Saturday Night Live alum, has joined the cast.

Meadows, recently seen in canceled NBC comedy Marry Me, will play Harry, the rapper’s irrepressibly optimistic yet heavily overworked manager, who encourages the rapper to get back together with his old bandmates (Jorma Taccone and Akiva Shaffer).

Judd Apatow is producing the pic, which was directed by Taccone and Schaffer (who previously delivered comedies Hot Rod and MacGruber). The film is being envisioned as a skewering of content-light musical documentaries like Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, One Direction: This Is Us and Katy Perry: Part of Me. »

Inside Amy Schumer Renewed for Season 4

21 April 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

2015 is shaping up to be Amy Schumer's year. She recently did a stellar job hosting the otherwise insufferable MTV Movie Awards, sharply skewering most of the modern music industry and Hollywood with her particular brand of provocative satire and absurdism. Later this year, she's toplining Trainwreck, Judd Apatow's hugely anticipated first female-led film which was also written by Schumer. The film focuses on Schumer's commitment-phobic character, appropriately named Amy, getting romanced by a friendly sports doctor, played by Bill Hader. Apatow's film helped wrangle Schumer an EW cover and will feature supporting and cameo roles from John Cena, Brie Larson, Marisa Tomei, Tim Meadows, Tilda Swinton, LeBron James, and Wu-Tang Clan's Method Man. Perhaps, then, it doesn't come as such a surprise that Comedy Central announced today that the network will be renewing the Peabody Award-winning Inside Amy Schumer for a fourth season, likely to debut later this year or next year. »

'Saturday Night Live' 40th Anniversary Video Highlights

16 February 2015 12:39 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

NBC aired the three and a half hour 40th Anniversary special for their beloved late night sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live last night, and it was surely an affair to remember, with memorable appearances by comedians who got their start on the show, such as Eddie Murphy, Bill Murray, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake kicked off the show with a memorable cold open, which is just one of many video highlights you can watch below, in case you missed the special or just want to relive it all over again.

Saturday Night Live's 40th Anniversary Special was watched by 23.1 million viewers last night, making it the network's most-watched primetime program in over 10 years, excluding post-Super Bowl programs. The ratings were the highest since the 2004 series finale of ER, which was watched by 23.9 million viewers. Also, excluding the Super Bowl and major awards ceremonies, »

Review: 'Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special' is 'SNL' in microcosm

16 February 2015 5:35 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Some thoughts on last night's "Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special" coming up just as soon as I assume Jon Lovitz is dead... Last week, I wrote about the history of "SNL," which has been filled with incredible highs, uncomfortable lows, and a mixture of things that either didn't work or simply outlived their usefulness. Perhaps intentionally — Lorne Michaels used to joke that the word "uneven" would be on his tombstone — or perhaps because it's inherent to any three and a half hour special with this many moving pieces, the special was "SNL" in a microcosm. Much of it worked spectacularly well. Some of it was disappointing and/or puzzling. And the whole thing went on much longer than it probably should have. Unlike the show's previous anniversary specials, which were largely driven by clips and testimonials, the 40th was conceived of as a super-sized, all-star installment of the show itself, »

Or that Julia Louis-Dreyfus was a cast member for multiple seasons before hitting it big with Seinfeld? She met Larry David on the show!

“Not So Live From New York”: Top Ten Worst Saturday Night Live-Based Feature Films

7 February 2015 3:34 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It is hard to believe that creator Lorne Michaels’s legendary late night variety show Saturday Night Live has been kicking around the American airways for four decades and still remarkably standing on its hind legs even until this very day. No doubt that SNL has shaped the pop cultural minds of its avid viewers for forty-plus years on the small screen. Importantly, SNL gave birth to the careers of some of Hollywood’s major top stars in the realm of film, television and stage.

Sure, SNL is an immense institution in television. In fact, NBC-tv will acknowledge the iconic late night program when it broadcasts the 40th anniversary highlighting Saturday Night Live’s on-air staying power with many of the show’s luminaries returning and paying retrospect to the classic sketch comedy that became one of America’s most enduring and long-lasting laughfests.
