Amy Poehler and Billy Eichner Celebrate the Premiere of Hulu’s ‘Difficult People’

31 July 2015 11:06 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The premiere party for Hulu’s new original comedy series “Difficult People” went off without a hitch on Thursday evening at New York’s School of Visual Arts Theater despite rain, 90-degree heat and extreme humidity. Executive producer Amy Poehler was all smiles as she stepped out onto the red carpet to support Billy Eichner, best known for his popular man-on-the-street game show “Billy on the Street,” and author/podcaster Julie Klausner, who co-star as struggling comedians who hate everything in the world except for each other and pop culture. The two caustic pals frequently land in awkward situations as a result of their brash behavior.

Klausner began writing the series pilot in the winter of 2012 and sent it to Poehler for some input. Klausner, who met the ‘Saturday Night Live’ alum while enrolled at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, said Poehler immediately loved the show’s storyline and was »

Jon Stewart’s Final The Daily Show Guests Are All Comedians

31 July 2015 7:06 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As Jon Stewart prepares to sign off The Daily Show for good next week, he revealed the names of the guests who'll join him on his final episodes: Amy Schumer, Louis C.K., and Denis Leary are all set to send Jon off before his August 6 finale. Recently, Stewart called both Leary and Louis two of his favorite guests because "I get to not work [and] fuck around with them for five minutes," since they're his friends. (Stewart recently performed stand-up for the first time in years following a set from Louis.) Leary himself tweeted earlier this month that he'd be a guest on The Daily Show on August 4 for "the final 'Go Fuck Yourself' with a 40 person choir." Details of Stewart's final show are, of course, a mystery — but we do know it'll air for an hour after a marathon of memorable of Tds episodes. »

Diablo Cody on Meryl Streep and leaving Twitter: 'It's become a circle jerk'

30 July 2015 1:32 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Diablo Cody, a.k.a. Brook Maurio, won an Oscar for writing "Juno" in 2007, but since her hailed debut, she's delivered more complicated, unconventional, and hair-raising movie scripts featuring women in starring roles. "Jennifer's Body" gave us Megan Fox as a zombified cheerleader; "Young Adult" offered up Charlize Theron as a jaded, sociopathically self-absorbed writer who pines for her high school boyfriend. Even 2013's "Paradise," Cody's directorial debut starring Julianne Hough, focused on a religious woman who rebuilds her life in Las Vegas following a traumatizing accident. Now, Cody's giving us yet another antiheroine with "Ricki and the Flash," her new film starring Meryl Streep as a rocker and wayward mother who returns to her Midwestern roots when daughter Julie (Mamie Gummer, Streep's real-life daughter) experiences a devastating breakup. With director Jonathan Demme at the helm and a spellbinding cast (Streep, Gummer, Kevin Kline, Rick Springfield, Audra McDonald, and more »

Jon Stewart Did Stand-up for the First Time in Years

30 July 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Before he destroyed, eviscerated, and owned Fox News, Jon Stewart was a stand-up comedian. Now, with only days remaining in his Daily Show tenure, Stewart returned to the stage for the first time in a decade, dropping in unannounced at the Comedy Cellar to do a ten-minute set. Intimidatingly enough, he had to follow Louis C.K., who was there doing the same thing. Stewart was urged on by former Daily Show (and current Nightly Show) producer Rory Albanese, who Instagrammed the whole thing. There's no video from the appearance yet, so it's unclear what he joked about, but we're guessing he probably stayed away from Herman Cain. »

Emmy episode analysis: Pamela Adlon makes an honest woman out of 'Louie'

29 July 2015 11:10 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Pamela Adlon has recurred on "Louie" since its first season as his on-again-off-again girlfriend Pamela, but her nomination this year for Best Comedy Guest Actress is her first for her work on-screen. However, it's far from her first recognition at the Emmys: she also contends for Best Comedy as a producer of the series, and she shared a Comedy Writing bid with Louis C.K. in 2013. Before that, she won Best Voice-Over Performance in 2002 for playing multiple characters in the Fox animated sitcom "King of the Hill." Will she prevail a second time thanks to her episode submission, "Bobby's House"? -Break- Emmys exclusive: Which episodes are submitted by Anthony Anderson ('Black-ish') and Louis C.K. ('Louie')?

With his final Daily Show on the horizon, Jon Stewart took time from Tuesday's episode to reveal some insider secrets – like whom he'd "marry, shag and kill" from group of friends Larry Wilmore, John Oliver and Stephen Colbert

Stewart answers that riveting query during a segment called "Askhole," wherein Daily Show correspondents Hasan Minhaj and Jordan Klepper interrogate the host with fan questions and bully their boss like grizzled detectives. "Some things are best left unsaid," Stewart says of his shagging options. But he relents after they threaten him with an Arby's enema. »

Tig Notaro will be the focus of a new series for Amazon Instant Video. The streaming video-on-demand company has ordered a pilot for an unnamed comedy show starring the stand-up comedian and written by Notaro and Oscar-winning Juno scribe Diablo Cody.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, who originally broke the story, the upcoming Amazon pilot will be a semi-autobiographical piece based on Notaro’s life, her struggles with breast cancer, and her comedic career. Amazon released a description of the series: "Tig Notaro has just recovered from an abdominal disease that has left her gaunt, wasted, exhausted, and pretty much stripped of everything except her finely honed sense of the absurd. Abruptly summoned home to Pass Christian, Miss., to take her ailing mother off life support, Tig finds herself dealing with her clingy girlfriend, her dysfunctional Gulf Coast family and the loss of the one person who held everything together. »

New images from Trumbo featuring Bryan Cranston, Diane Lane and Hellen Mirren

29 July 2015 6:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the news that director Jay Roach’s upcoming biopic Trumbo is set to receive its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, two new images have arrived online featuring Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) as screenwriter Dalton Trumbo alongside Diane Lane (Man of Steel) and Helen Mirren (The Queen)…

The successful career of 1940s screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) comes to a crushing end when he and other Hollywood figures are blacklisted for their political beliefs. Trumbo tells the story of his fight against the U.S. government and studio bosses in a war over words and freedom, which entangled everyone in Hollywood from Hedda Hopper (Helen Mirren) and John Wayne to Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger.

Trumbo is set for release in the States on November 6th and in the UK on January 22nd, with a cast that also includes John Goodman, Elle Fanning, Michael Stuhlbarg, Louis C.K. and Alan Tudyk. »

New Look At Bryan Cranston And Helen Mirren In Trumbo

29 July 2015 2:26 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

New Dalton Trumbo biopic, Trumbo, sees Bryan Cranston in the title role as the blacklisted screenwriter  crushed under the wheels of the state in 1940s America. Helen Mirren co-stars as a trash-talking columnist looking to expose any reds lurking under the bed. Any bed and any reds: she was an equal-opportunities smearer. Here’s a first look at Dame Helen’s character in action.Trumbo tells the sorry chapter of American film history when, if you a Hollywood player and not drapped in the Stars and Stripes at all times, you were likely to be hauled up in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee (Huac) committee and grilled about your political allegiances. In the worst cases – like Trumbo’s – professional exile resulted.Joining Cranston on this one is Diane Lane as his wife (pictured), Cleo, with Elle Fanning as his daughter. Michael Stuhlbarg plays Edward G. Robinson and David James Elliott is John Wayne. »

Tig Notaro, Louis C.K., and Diablo Cody Are Making an Amazon Comedy Together

28 July 2015 2:46 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Amazon has picked up a pilot starring comedian Tig Notaro, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The semi-autobiographical comedy will be co-written by both Notaro and Diablo Cody, while Louis C.K. is onboard to executive produce the show with them — making for one hell of a comedy trifecta. The show reportedly began as a script deal at FX before moving to Amazon as a pilot. This news comes on the heels of a breakthrough year for Notaro: In April, she aired a documentary, Knock, Knock, It's Tig, on Showtime and recently released another doc, Tig, on Netflix. She'll premiere her first HBO comedy special, Tig Notaro: Boyish Girl Interrupted, on August 22. Congrats, Tig! »
