Larry King Ponders the Meaning of Life, Unleashes His Innermost Thoughts in Late-Night Twitter Spree

19 hours ago | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

And now, deep thoughts by Larry King. With his USA Today column long since killed, veteran news anchor King has had to find a new outlet for his written musings about life, love, pop culture, and politics. That outlet, it seems, is Twitter. Late Sunday, Oct. 19, the former CNN host went on an hour-long Twitter spree, sharing dozens of random ruminations with his 2.52 million followers. The onslaught of tweets began with one about Dane Cook's Showtime special, and then touched on everything from food ("Did [...] »

All About 'Planes: Fire & Rescue's' Amazing Attention to Detail (Exclusive)

29 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Last week, I was given the unique opportunity to visit DisneyToon Studios, the division of Disney Animation that is responsible for the increasingly wonderful "Tinker Bell" and "Planes" movies. (Their building is right across the street from Disney Television Animation and it took every iota of my self-control not to dash across the walkway and start asking questions about "Gravity Falls" and "Wander Over Yonder.")

Essentially, the folks at DisneyToon Studios gave us a tour of Piston Peak National Park, the huge park at the center of "Planes: Fire & Rescue" (and, if you missed the movie, you really should make up for that -- it's out on DVD, Blu-ray, and Disney Movies Anywhere on November 4th).

In the movie, Dusty (Dane Cook), the erstwhile prop plane who dreamed of being a world-famous racer, is sidelined due to mechanical issues. He finds a new calling in his role as a »

25 October 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | newser.com | See recent newser news »

It must be fun to be an actor, always getting to kiss other hot celebrities in movies, right? Well ... not necessarily. Ok! rounds up 10 of the worst celebrity kissers: Kate Hudson: Dane Cook called her his worst on-screen kiss, saying that while filming My Best Friend's Girl , "I think she purposely ate a feast of onions right before the scene. I had to burn her on that one." Bradley Cooper: Jennifer Lawrence told him he was a "wet kisser," Cooper once revealed, adding, "You don’t want to hear that. It was not a compliment."

Let's revisit Larry King's 2 a.m. Twitter rampage

20 October 2014 3:29 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

We all have those moments late at night when the Netflix queue is just "meh," everything in the freezer has been microwaved and eaten, and all there's left to do in this world is to tweet. It seems that Larry King had that kind of night as he tweeted with the stamina of a thousand youths late last night (or more like early this morning). It all began with a critical appraisal of Dane Cook's Showtime special (as it usually does) and devolved into an appreciation of Derek Jeter, Oreo cookies with milk, and a hatred of people with perfect teeth. »

Dane Cook didn't have any trouble telling the truth when the 42-year-old stand-up comic was put on the spot during a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live.  The Good Luck Chuck star stopped by the Clubhouse on Thursday to promote his special Troublemaker, which airs tonight at 10 p.m. on Showtime, where he also played a special game of Plead the Fifth.  Host Andy Cohen informed the actor that "we're gonna put a spin" on the popular game, noting that if Cook refused to answer the question, fellow guest, CNN's Candy Crowley, would squirt cheese wiz in his mouth.  And clearly, Cook was avoiding that cheesy can at all costs.  "Who is the »

Dane Cook gambles on himself tonight in his new self-funded Showtime comedy special, Troublemaker.

Dane Cook gambles on himself tonight in his new self-funded Showtime comedy special, Troublemaker, which marks his directorial debut. Et got the scoop from the veteran funnyman (who appeared in Disney hit Planes: Fire and Rescue over the summer) about what to expect.

How do you keep your material fresh in a career that spans over a decade?

“The cool thing about standup comedy is you're always experiencing something in your life that will spark an idea or a concept that you want to take to the stage. In each stage of my life, my career reflected where I was at. My standup in my twenties was indicative of drinking, and drugs, and sex, you know, collegiate kind of things. And then [I was] getting into my thirties and having some more serious life experiences, whether it was losing my parents, or dealing »

Dane Cook Talks Comedy Special Troublemaker, Following His Plan for a Live Show, His Upcoming Indie 400 Days, and More

17 October 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In the Showtime comedy special Troublemaker, comedian Dane Cook is stirring things up again.  With his patented brand of observational humor, he’s skewering aspects of modern life, from our hidden internet selves to how much time we spend texting to gender taboos, in general.  His directorial debut was filmed last fall and showcases his acerbic wit and dead-on insight, as he explores the hilarious aspects of everyday life and human behavior, in a way that only he can. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, Dane Cook talked about why he wanted to direct his own special and that he’ll be directing his next, as well, that he’d like to also direct another comedian’s special and help them keep their authenticity, why he wanted to delve so deeply into personal connection and relationships, just how closely he follows his plan for a live show, addressing his hecklers, »

Dane Cook talks 'Troublemaker,' Louis C.K., and all the haters

17 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The mid-2000s were some pretty damn good years for Dane Cook. In '06, the Comedy Central alum's Retaliation became the bestselling comedy album in 28 years, going platinum; Rolling Stone named him Hot Comic of the Year. Cook was the comic messiah of frat boys. Then in late '07—the same year Cook became the second comedian ever to sell out at Madison Square Garden—the tides began to turn against him, as they often do. Of course, Cook always had detractors—but at some point, the loathing reached critical mass, tipping the scales of public consensus. Dane Cook-fatigue set in. »

Dane Cook Breaks Down Troublemaker, Destroying Relationships & Plans for New Comedy Album [Interview]

17 October 2014 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

I spoke with comedian Dane Cook, who is gearing up to unleash his brand new stand up comedy special ‘Troublemaker’ on Showtime this Friday October 17th. We spoke about some of his new bits that will be appearing in the special, reflected on the passing of the iconic Robin Williams and how he deals with the hate that still follows him around. Dane Cook is one of the most polarizing figures in comedy and whether you like him or not, he’s back with a vengeance. ‘Troublemaker’ is the comedian’s first major stand up special in years and it’s funny as hell. I might be biased because I'm one of the few who actually thought ‘Good Luck Chuck’ and ‘My Best Friend’s Girl’ were hilarious R-Rated cinematic romps. I've been a fan ever since seeing him well over a decade ago on Just for Laughs and have. »

The Troublemaker tells the truth! Dane Cook appeared on Watch What Happens Live, Thursday, Oct. 16, and played a game of Plead the Fifth with Andy Cohen and CNN's Candy Crowley. "We're gonna put a spin on Plead the Fifth," Cohen told viewers, adding that if the comedian refused to respond, Crowley would squirt cheese wiz into his mouth. The first question was light. "Who is the most overrated comic of all time?" Cohen asked. Cook, 42, who has been promoting his new stand-up special Troublemaker, responded with "Gallagher." Cohen [...] »

Q&A: Dane Cook On Directing Himself and Finding What’s Funny

15 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After 25 years in the business, comedian Dane Cook slides into the director’s chair for the first time for his new comedy special, “Troublemaker,” premiering on Showtime at 10 p.m. Oct. 17. Cook talked to Variety about the challenges of directing himself.

How does directing complicate prepping for the performance?

Most comedians will tell you if you ever want to throw off a performance, put a camera in the room. It’s pretty much an authenticity killer because we’re creatures of what’s happening in the room in the moment, as opposed to when we can really make a plan and stick to an overall formula. What was important for me was to capture that as well. I wanted the cameras in the room but I really did not want it to take away from what I felt like could be a real lightning-in-a-bottle kind of moment. And by being the director, »
