27 October 2014 3:35 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

The Adult Swim animated series Mike Tyson Mysteries is hilariously odd and surprisingly charming.  While Mike Tyson solves various mysteries that are sent to him by carrier pigeon, he is aided by the Mike Tyson Mystery Team – the Ghost of the Marquess of Queensberry (Jim Rash), his adopted Korean daughter Yung Hee (Rachel Ramras), and a pigeon who was once a man (Norm MacDonald). During this recent interview to promote the new show, Mike Tyson and producer Hugh Davidson talked about where the story ideas come from, how Cormac McCarthy ended up in the premiere, his persona in this cartoon, the inspiration of Scooby Doo, how the pigeon and ghost came into the story, what fans can expect from this season, and the secret to successfully reinventing yourself.  Check out what they had to say after the jump. Question:  Where do these story ideas come from? Hugh Davidson:  They pretty much come from me. »

The Simpsons Sued for $250M by Goodfellas Actor

23 October 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The Simpsons has parodied too many celebrities to count over its many years in existence from Arnold Schwarzenegger (Rainier Wolfcastle) to Mike Tyson (Drederick Tatum) to Don King (Lucius Sweet) to many, many more. But now a lesser known actor is suing The Simpsons for “stealing” his likeness. That would be Frank Sivero, who played mobster Frankie Carbone in Goodfellas. The character, Louie, on The Simpsons, clearly draws influence from Carbone, and Sivero thinks that’s not only illegal, but worth $250M,which is how much he’s suing for. The motion was filed this week, and  Sivero says that he used to live in the same apartment complex as some Simpsons writers, which also led to his influence making its way to the show itself. What’s not clear is why he expects to get $250M from the case, as even if the laws regarding parody are murky at times, »
