‘The Fluffy Movie’ Interview with Comedian Gabriel Iglesias

25 July 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Comedian Gabriel Iglesias has just started to make a silver screen presence, having done some voice-work for Planes in 2013 and The Nut Job in 2014, along with appearing in films like Magic Mike and A Haunted House 2. Now, Iglesias makes his biggest effort yet to show the moviegoing crowd his comedy of hyper impressions and voices with his first theatrical stand-up film, The Fluffy Movie.

I sat down in a roundtable interview with Iglesias to discuss his stand-up film, the power of Youtube numbers, the over-the-top stereotype humor in A Haunted House 2, Magic Mike 2, and more.

The Fluffy Movie opens everywhere on July 25.

What has been your involvement with this film project, aside from making the jokes?

This is really challenging for me because it’s my baby, I’m very personal about my standup. That’s all I’ve known. And so the back-and-forth with the film company, »

13 Actors Who Almost Played Superheroes

15 July 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

There are a lot of "what ifs" in the movie business. There are so many options when it comes to casting actors to play characters in movies. Superhero films are huge right now, and I love most of the actors that studios have cast to play these badass characters. Christian Bale as Batman, Andrew Garfield aa Spider-Man, Henry Cavill as Superman, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man are just a few of many. But these characters could have easily been played by other actors. It's hard to imagine that now since we're already invested in what's in front of our eyes.

I've come up with a list of actors who almost played some of these superheroes. You may already know about some of the close calls on the list, you may not, but when I was researching for this article there were a few things I didn't know before, »

Scared Stupid: Marlon Wayans talks A Haunted House 2 and the Spoof Genre

29 June 2014 6:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Flickering Myth co-editor Luke Owen sits down with Marlon Wayans to discuss his upcoming movie, A Haunted House 2

The original movie was panned by many critics and its sequel, A Haunted House 2, hasn’t fared much better. But that hasn’t stopped Marlon Wayans (Scary Movie) from producing his brand of humour for his audience.

Flickering Myth co-editor Luke Owen sat down with Marlon Wayans to discuss A Haunted House 2 as well as the spoof genre in general and how its changed over time.

Tell me about A Haunted House 2.

It basically picks up where the first one left off, Malcolm escapes and now he has a new family and they move into a new house and the same old stuff happens. Spooky stuff starts to happen and there is a creepy doll. And his crazy ex-girlfriend moves in next door!

Why did you make A Haunted House 2? »

Exclusive: Marlon Wayans has no regrets over missing out on Robin role, would like to play The Mask or Plastic Man

27 June 2014 2:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday Flickering Myth co-editor Luke Owen caught up with Marlon Wayans to discuss the upcoming release of the comedy sequel A Haunted House 2, during which he spoke about whether he had any regrets about missing out on the opportunity to play Robin in the Batman franchise (Wayans was cast in Batman Returns before the character was omitted, and was also set to appear in Batman Forever before Joel Schumacher succeeded Tim Burton in the director’s chair), as well as whether there’s any other superhero characters he’d like to portray:

Luke Owen: There was a time when you were signed on to play Robin in the 90s Batman movies. Do you regret never being able to play Robin?

Marlon Wayans: Nope, not at all. I have never regretted anything about any movie. Because there are too many rewards for you when you don’t regret things. »

TV On Tap: “True Blood” Begins Its Final Season, “Buffy” Vets Join the “Witches of East End” and Zachary Quinto Set for “Girls” Appearance

20 June 2014 6:04 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

In an odd mix of news, AMC announced that it ordered a second season of Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul before a single episode aired. However, the series’ debut has been postponed to next year, when it will have The Walking Dead as a lead-in.

Zachary Quinto will make a guest appearance on Girls next season. According to TVLine, Quinto will appear in just a single episode.

Chelsea Handler has signed a deal with Netflix that includes a talk show and a comedy special. The talk show will launch in early 2016 but the deal is already being questioned. Vulture wonders how the topical humor of late night talk shows will mesh with Netflix’s bingewatching model.

The Witches of East End has booked a couple of Buffy alumni. James Marsters will play an old family friend while Bianca Lawson will appear as a mysterious woman.

1 May 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Looking like a goth Cynthia from "Rugrats," Rihanna stole the show on Thursday night at the iHeartRadio Awards in Los Angeles.Sporting a lace "dress" that exposed her underwear and a ton of bare skin, the singer also sported a head of hair knots, giant hoop earrings, green lipstick, leather jacket and a giant silver cross necklace.Yeah, it's a lot of look ... and has drawn comparisons online to the aforementioned doll, Mel BMarlon Wayans and Crazy Eyes from "Orange Is the New Black."RiRi also attracted some major attention by not being there in the first place. When she won the Hip-Hop/R&B Song of the Year trophy, she was totally Mia -- with Pitbull accepting the award on her behalf. An announcer later said that she was "stuck on the 405," Aka in traffic.When she finally did show up, she at least her outfit was memorable. »

Box Office: Cameron Diaz's 'The Other Woman' takes down 'Captain America'

27 April 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Los Angeles (AP) — A femme-fueled comedy beat a superhero blockbuster at the box office this weekend. After holding the top position for three weeks, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" has been topped by "The Other Woman" for the No. 1 spot. Fox's revenge comedy, starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, debuted with $24.7 million, while Disney-Marvel's "Captain America," led by Chris Evans, grossed $16 million in its fourth weekend, bringing its domestic total to $225 million. The PG-13 rating of Nick Cassavetes directed "The Other Woman" — about three ladies wronged by a three-timing spouse played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau of "Game of Thrones" — helped it draw a larger audience, says Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst of box-office tracker Rentrak. "The rating was perfect," he said. "If you are going for the mainstream audience who is looking for something that has a little bit of an edge, but not too much, you can hit »
