Before Sacha Baron Cohen gave the world the mankini in Borat there was Ali G, the blingtastic leader of the Staines Massive who earns respec' in his movie debut by taking on Westminster - and winning. So Vat is lifted on thongs and immigration policy prioritises "fit" asylum seekers, as Ali and his massive fight for a better tomorrow. But, will Charles Dance's nefarious villain ruin the day? »
Howard Stern was just being Howard Stern when he booked accused Jewish center shooter Frazier Glenn Miller on his show a few years ago. And therein lies a cautionary tale, for clowns and serious news organizations alike.
Part of Stern’s shtick has long included bringing on freaks, for wont of a better term, in order to goof on them, whether that was Miller – a guest in 2010 – or frequent guest Daniel Carver (a Ku Klux Klan member known for saying, “Wake up, white people!”). In theory, it’s all good fun, a way to treat Stern’s radio audience to out-there voices.
Yet the problem with booking people who hold such views is that they are, by their nature, unpredictable. And if they do something terrible – or even just embarrassing – you are linked to them in perpetuity.
To be clear, this doesn’t mean you are responsible for them, and certainly not for their actions. »

With a show that's seen Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen make out and the majority of Seth Rogen's genitals, it's hard to pick the craziest moment in all of MTV Movie Awards history. But hey, somebody's gotta do it. And now, with the 2014 edition of MTV's annual fete of bedlam and debauchery just hours away, it's time to get nostalgic. For the record, this wasn't a simple task. There's a bevy of equally ...

From producing the funniest movie spoofs to inciting celebrity make-out sessions, there is rarely a dull moment at the MTV Movie Awards! With the 2014 show going down tonight, let’s take a moment to remember some of the most outrageous, cringe-worthy moments of MTV’s past.In 2005, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams gave the audience something to talk about when they demonstrated their on-screen/off-screen passion after winning for Best Kiss. "The Notebook" stars were actually dating at the time they won the award -- and lucky for us, the couple wasn’t shy about publicly showing their affection for each other. One of the most infamous Omg moments in MTV history occurred at the 2009 Movie Awards when Eminem became the butt of Bruno’s joke … literally. As Sacha Baron Cohen ascended from the ceiling dressed as bare-bottomed angel, there appeared to be a mechanical malfunction that sent the "Borat »

Though there's not much in the way of plot details, we now know of at least one new character that's set to feature prominently in "Alice in Wonderland 2": The Mad Hatter's father.
TheWrap reports that Mark Rylance, an acclaimed British theater actor, is in talks to take the part. The character's name is Zanik Hightopp, the father of Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter, and like his zany son, Hightopp "cannot hide his bright-colored hair beneath a top hat," according to TheWrap.
In addition to a host of appearances in Shakespeare stage productions, Rylance is known for his selective film work, including parts in "The Other Boleyn Girl" and "Anonymous" and a role in the upcoming Sean Penn-starring "The Gunman. »

Skeptics will wonder how long CBS had Stephen Colbert in its back pocket, given how smoothly the baton pass worked out. But whatever the back story, the network has found the perfect choice to replace David Letterman, in a coup that could potentially reset the latenight race to a scenario much like the one that existed for years between Letterman and Jay Leno.
Anyone fretting about Colbert’s ability to hold down an hour or step out of the self-absorbed conservative talkshow host persona he’s affected on “The Colbert Report” clearly hasn’t been paying attention to the obvious, which is Colbert’s gift for improvising in that character is virtually unmatched. (Sacha Baron Cohen would be a close cousin, but it’s a different vibe.)
Those talents should serve him extraordinarily well in creating the show at the desk – the area where Letterman (and before that Johnny Carson) traditionally outshone Leno, »

The sequel to Disney’s 2010 live action reboot of Lewis Carroll’s famous children’s novel Alice in Wonderland – tentatively entitled Through The Looking Glass – has quietly been trudging along into pre-production without much fanfare as yet. However, It looks like we will all be seeing a new character come May 2016 in the guise of the Mad Hatter’s father, who is to be played by stage thespian Mark Rylance.
Rylance’s previous big screen outings are few and far between but include the likes of The Other Boleyn Girl, Anonymous and Intimacy. Much of his acting career has been spent on stage including various stints at the Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre , London.
Set to return is Johnny Depp, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter with Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat) the only previously announced new face due to appear as an unnamed villain. The movie is to be directed by »

Eminem and Rihanna are dropping by the MTV Movie Awards as they gear up for their co-headlining summer stadium tour. The frequent collaborators will take the stage this Sunday for the first televised performance of their single, "The Monster." Eminem and Rihanna are no strangers to the MTV Movie Awards, having performed previously (Eminem in 2009 and Rihanna with Jay Z in 2007). Eminem also was a part of one of the awards show's most memorable moments when a little-clothed Sacha Baron Cohen, as his alter ego Bruno, dropped down from the rafters and onto the rapper.

Steve Coogan spent many years trying to shed his hilariously awful alter ego, radio personality Alan Partridge, which made him a star in the 1990s on British television but made it difficult for him to play different kinds of roles. (His closest equivalent in the U.S. is probably Larry David’s character in Curb Your Enthusiasm.) The series also gave a boost to his writing partners Armando Iannucci (creator of the scathing British comedy series The Thick of It and its U.S. offshoot, Veep) and Peter Baynham (whose credits range from Borat to Arthur Christmas). With the passage of time, they’ve relented, and following a 2012 television special, they have collaborated with Coogan and...

How cool is Samuel L. Jackson? So cool that he can make a '90s sit-com hip again. Jackson held a poetry slam describing the plot of Boy Meets World on The Tonight Show. He later admitted to Jimmy Fallon that he'd never seen the classic coming-of-age sitcom. Later on NBC, Nick Cannon continued to explain donning white face to promote his upcoming album, White People Party Music. On Tuesday's Late Night, he said it was an homage to fellow provacatures such as Sacha Baron Cohen, and the late comedian Andy Kaufman. Host Seth Meyers wasn't offended by

Blockbuster season is almost upon us, but what will next summer's big hitters be? Here's a roundup
Once upon a time, summer blockbuster season 2015 was set to be packed with the biggest collision of big franchises we'd ever seen together. However, one by one, lots of these films moved away to other dates. As such, you won't be seeing Star Wars: Episode VII, Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, Independence Day 2, Batman Vs Superman or Finding Dory in a cinema next summer.
But even with those films gone, there's still no shortage of huge movies battling for your cash in a year's time. And as is traditional for us at the start of summer blockbuster season, we've taken a look at what's coming up in 12 months' time.
At the second annual Rebels With a Cause gala on Thursday in La, there were plenty of amazing groups getting rebellious together. Isla Fisher and her husband, Sacha Baron Cohen, had fun with Jonah Hill; Pharrell Williams's wife was mildly overshadowed by his newest hat; and Chris Pine made his first postarrest appearance with friend Anna Kendrick. However, the most exciting duo was John Stamos and Bob Saget, who had another laughter-filled Full House reunion. Elsewhere in the TV realm, January Jones showed off a bold and sweet look that is the complete opposite of her TV persona Betty Draper's style. Though, with the premiere of Mad Men's final season less than a month away, we'll be seeing her in '60s mode again in no time. View Slideshow › »

With executive producers/writers Larry Charles, Matt Nix, Ben Wexler, and Billy Crystal, FX‘s new sit-com order for The Comedians should be about the closest thing television has to a slam dunk. Add Josh Gad to the cast, and build it off of something we already know is a pretty solid format, and it looks like FX has the next great show locked up.
Having just announced a 13-episode order based on the Swedish show of the same name, this is one you’re going to hear about a lot in the future, and by the time it rolls around, a lot of people are going to be pretty excited for this one. It’s one thing to build a new version of a show that is, reportedly, already a strong series, but it’s quite another to throw in a mix of Arrested Development, Burn Notice, and Curb Your Enthusiasm. »
