Paul Reiser has been set to recur on Andrew Gurland’s new FX series Married, which was picked up to series in January and will debut this summer. Created, directed and executive produced by Gurland, Married stars Nat Faxon and Judy Greer as Russ and Lina Bowman, who can barely remember what was like before kids, debt, and suburbia rained on their romance. But every once in a while they are reminded what drew them together in the first place: they’re best friends. Reiser will play the older love interest of co-star Jenny Slate’s character. Brad Gelman also co-stars. Reiser, who had a pair of films — Whiplash and Life After Beth — premiere at Sundance this year, most recently appeared in HBO’s Behind The Candelabra. He is repped by Gersh, New Wave Entertainment, and attorney Jeff Finkelstein. Related: 2014 FX Pilots Treme actor Michael Cerveris has landed a recurring »

If it had somehow escaped your notice – in which case, come on out from under that rock – the Oscars are almost upon us again.
Plenty of this year's nominees aren't exactly what you could call unpredictable. There's Meryl, and Leo, and Jennifer, and no major upsets are expected on the night.
But what about the less usual suspects? Digital Spy takes a look back at eight Oscar-winners you may have forgotten about...
The Twelfth Doctor himself took home a statuette from the Academy in 1995, for writing and directing short film Franz Kafka's It's A Wonderful Life. Not to be confused with Frank Capra's actual It's A Wonderful Life, the absurdist short follows Kafka (played by Richard E Grant) in the throes of writer's block while attempting to write his masterpiece The Metamorphosis, and it tied for Best Live Action Short Film with Peggy Rajski's Trevor.
From now until the Friday before the Oscars we'll be running daily pieces about why a film does or does not deserve Best Picture. Today, Eric explains why Nebraska deserves the big win during the Academy Awards. Alexander Payne has had some success at the Academy Awards. His first nomination came in 2000 when he and Jim Taylor found their screenplay for Election competing in the Best Adapted Screenplay category, and while he found himself walking away empty handed that night, he has earned trophies in his two trips since, sharing Best Adapted Screenplay prizes with Taylor and Jim Rash & Nat Faxon, respectively, for Sideways and The Descendants. Well-deserved as both of those prizes were, however, it.s also hard not to ignore the categories in which those same films list: namely Best Picture. Despite being top-tier contenders that collected numerous awards on the road to the Oscars . including Best Motion »

Check out the teaser trailer for Melissa McCarthy’s new comedy Tammy, which also co-stars Susan Sarandon, Allison Janney, Gary Cole, Mark Duplass, Dan Aykroyd, Kathy Bates, Toni Collette, and Nat Faxon.
Tammy (Melissa McCarthy) is having a bad day. She’s totaled her clunker car, gotten fired from her thankless job at a greasy burger joint, and instead of finding comfort at home, finds her husband getting comfortable with the neighbor in her own house. It’s time to take her boom box and book it. The bad news is she’s broke and without wheels. The worse news is her grandma, Pearl (Susan Sarandon), is her only option — with a car, cash, and an itch to see Niagara Falls. Not exactly the escape Tammy had in mind. But on the road, with grandma riding shotgun, it may be just what Tammy needs.

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer Melissa McCarthy's new comedy Tammy. McCarthy co-wrote the film with her husband, Ben Falcone, who also directed the film. The trailer shows her character robbing a fast food place while wearing a paper bag disguise. What helps the trailer pop a little more is the fact that it's cut to Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise." The movie also stars Susan Sarandon, Allison Janney, Gary Cole, Mark Duplass, Toni Collette, Nat Faxon, Dan Aykroyd, and Kathy Bates. It looks like it could be an entertaining film. That McCarthy can be pretty damn funny.

Warner Bros. and New Line have premiered the first teaser trailer and poster for the latest Melissa McCarthy movie, Tammy, which sounds like some sort of road comedy about woman (McCarthy), in the midst of the worst day ever, takes to the road with her grandmother (Susan Sarandon) to clear her mind. Here's a more detailed synopsis: Tammy (Melissa McCarthy) is having a bad day. She's totaled her clunker car, gotten fired from her thankless job at a greasy burger joint, and instead of finding comfort at home, finds her husband getting comfortable with the neighbor in her own house.

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for director Ben Falcone’s upcoming road trip comedy Tammy. The film stars Melissa McCarthy as a woman who takes a road trip with her diabetic/alcoholic/foul-mouthed grandmother (Susan Sarandon) after she’s laid off from a fast food restaurant and discovers that her husband is having an affair. This first teaser focuses squarely on McCarthy, who appears to be doing her best Shia Labeouf impression right off the bat. It's a great example of a teaser, since only the barest bones of a plot are on display. If you like the humor in this minute-plus, there's a good chance you'll want to check out the full movie. Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Allison Janney, Gary Cole, Mark Duplass, Toni Collette, Nat Faxon, Dan Aykroyd, and Kathy Bates. Tammy opens July 2nd.

It’s been a long time since we’ve heard or seen anything from Jack Black. Considering that he’s famous mostly for scat singing (loudly scat singing, I might add) and exposing his very ample stomach, that’s no small feat. But ever since the twin flops of Year One and Gulliver‘s Travels – flops that occurred four and five years ago, respectively — there hasn’t been much mainstream Black for public consumption. That might change, however, with The D-Train. The Hollywood Reporter has Black set to star in the upcoming comedy, where he would play a lonely doofus still longing for the acceptance of his high school peers who also happens to be the chairman of his twenty-year high school reunion. The film will find Black’s character traveling from Middle America to Hollywood to convince the most popular kid in school, who’s now a washed-up commercial actor, to »

James Marsden and Jack Black are teaming up for a new comedy called The D-Train. It's always good to see Marsden getting cast in movies, as the guy is awesome. Black, on the other hand, I could do without, but maybe he and Marsden will make a good team.
The story centers on "a Middle American high school reunion committee chairman (Black), still searching for high school acceptance, who has to do whatever it takes to get the most popular guy from high school -- now a failed actor working in commercials (Marsden) -- to show up to their 20-year reunion, including flying to Los Angeles to penetrate the world of celebrities."
This sounds like it could be a fun movie. I could see some comedy coming out of these types of characters and the reunion setting. The film will be the directorial debut of Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel, »

Jack Black is set to reunite with School Of Rock and Nacho Libre writer, Mike White. The two will be joined by X-men’s James Marsden for The D-train. The film will see Jack Black as the head of a school reunion committee who will stop at absolutely nothing to make sure his classes’ most popular student attends. That student will be played by Marsden, who has become a star of TV commercials. Nat Faxon and White will also star, presumably as two other ex students.
Directing the feature will be Jarred Paul and Andrew Mogel, the screenwriters of Yes Man. This will be their directorial debut. School Of Rock is still one of my favourite comedies after surprising me all those years ago, but that was helmed by Richard Linklater, a man with much more experience. Hopefully Paul and Mogel have been chosen well as the plot seems to write itself, »

• Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables) is in talks to star alongside Robert De Niro in The Intern for director Nancy Meyers (It’s Complicated). Hathaway would play a high-powered executive who gets assigned a senior intern (De Niro). Reese Witherspoon was previously attached to the role when Warner Bros. signed on, but dropped out due to reported scheduling conflicts. After a quiet 2013 (release-wise), Hathaway can be seen next in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar (Nov. 7). She also just enjoyed the premiere of Song One (release date Tbd) at Sundance. [THR]

The story centers on a high school reunion committee chairman (Jack Black), who is still struggling for acceptance following his high school days. He sets off on a journey to Los Angeles to try and convince his most popular classmate (James Marsden), a failed actor now working in commercials, to attend their 20 year reunion. Mike White, who wrote the screenplay, co-stars as the man who was Jack Black's character's only friend in high school. Nat Faxon is in negotiations to join the cast in an unspecified role.
Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel are attached to make their directorial debuts. They both wrote the 2008 Jim Carrey comedy Yes Man, and co-created the short-lived Fox animated series Allen Gregory with Jonah Hill.
Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel helm the story of a Middle American high school reunion committee chairman (Black), still searching for acceptance, who has to do whatever it takes to get the school's most popular guy from high school to show up to their 20-year reunion.
Problem is, the guy (Marsden) is now a failed actor working in commercials. Black's character flies to Los Angeles to penetrate the world of celebrities and get the man to come along.

Not only are their names complimentary, but Jack Black and Mike White have generally made beautiful comedy together, with White usually providing the script and Black in front of the camera. They’re back together, with White producing and Black starring, along with James Marsden for The D-Train.Yes Man writers Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel are stepping up to direct this one, which finds Black chairing the committee of a middle American high school 20-year reunion. Desperate for the acceptance and acclaim he never got in his school days, our hero sees his chance to shine by convincing the guy voted most popular (Marsden) to attend.Trouble is, the one-time hotshot is now a failed actor primarily working in adverts who has no real desire to parade around his old school. So Black’s character heads to Los Angeles to try to convince him…As well as his producing duties, »
