In between those latter two, William Shatner co-wrote and directed Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. Later, The Next Generation cast member Jonathan Frakes directed Star Trek: First Contact and Star Trek: Insurrection. Frakes also directed many episodes of The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager. Other cast members who’ve helmed episodes of various incarnations, including Enterprise: Patrick Stewart, LeVar Burton, Avery BrooksRene AuberjonoisRoxann Dawson, Michael DornSiddig El Fadil, Gates McFaddenRobert Duncan McNeill, Robert Picardo, Andrew Robinson and Tim Russ.

‘Wet Hot American Summer’ Cast Reunites To Star In Netflix Series

9 January 2015 3:01 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Netflix made lots of Wet Hot American Summer fans very happy when it announced it would revive the camp counselor film by David Wain as a miniseries. Now, the streaming video-on-demand service has reportedly started production with most of the film’s original cast on board.

If a report from Deadline is to be believed, Wain and Wet Hot film co-writer Michael Showalter have managed to re-unite the ensemble cast to reprise their original roles. In an interview with Crave back in June 2014, Showalter said he and Wain “wouldn’t have wanted to [bring back Wet Hot American Summer] if we couldn’t get everybody.”

Apparently, Showalter and Wain “did their due diligence” and managed to align the schedules of most of the cast from the 2001 film. Netflix’s 8-episode limited series will see fan favorites grace the (albeit more digital) screen, such as Elizabeth Banks, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Michael Ian Black, Judah Friedlander, »

Both Conan O'Brien and Jon Stewart devoted a small slice of their shows to the Charlie Hebdo tragedy that left 12 people dead Wednesday morning, after terrorists opened fire in a French satire-magazine's newsroom. Here's what the two hosts had to say:a slew of other celebrities — including Michael Ian Black, Ricky Gervais, and Bill Maher — have been sounding off since the news broke, but Tina Fey had some particularly galvanizing thoughts. Speaking at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour earlier today, she said: Obviously, that news is terrible and tragic and upsetting ... You look at that and you look at the controversy surrounding The Interview, it makes you think about how important free speech is and how it absolutely must be defended. [We] cannot »
