Inbetweeners' James Buckley Starring In The Comedian's Guide To Survival

20 August 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Usually found (wrongly) bragging about his status with the opposite sex as Jay in The Inbetweeners on big and small screens, James Buckley is striking out away from the gang for a starring role in The Comedian’s Guide To Survival. With Paul Kaye, MyAnna Buring and Neil Stuke in the cast, the film finds Buckley as failed comic James Mullinger, who travels the world interviewing more successful funny types to find the secret to comedy. And because he has to talk to funny types, the film, which is in production right now, features a host of cameos from people who make their trade cracking gags at a variety of levels including Jimmy Carr, Omid Dalilli, Gilbert Gottfried and more. Mark Murphy wrote the script for this one and is directing, including a stint at the Just For Laughs comedy festival in July. Expect the film to hit festivals and »

Robin Williams Remembered by Hollywood on Anniversary of His Death

11 August 2015 2:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One year ago today, Robin Williams passed away at the age of 63, leaving behind a legacy of comedic greatness. Today, several Hollywood stars took to their social media platforms to honor the late legend on the one-year anniversary of his sudden death, the most poignant of which may have been from Sarah Michelle Gellar, who played his TV daughter on CBS' The Crazy Ones. Here's what she had to say in an Instagram post earlier today, which included a photo of the iconic park bench from 1997's Good Will Hunting.

"'To laugh often and much; to win the respect of the intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the beauty in others; to leave the world a bit better wether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social »

'Problem Child' Star Michael Oliver Resurfaces -- Wait'll You See Junior Now!

27 July 2015 1:15 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Junior is all grown up! Michael Oliver memorably played John Ritter's adopted son in the two "Problem Child" films, the first of which came out 25 years ago today. The film was a surprise success, quickly spawning a sequel -- but Oliver all but vanished from showbiz shortly after, thanks to a lawsuit filed against his family from Universal Pictures. To mark the film's 25th anniversary, costar Gilbert Gottfried tracked Oliver down for his podcast, where the former child star opened up about working with the late John Ritter, his swift exit from Hollywood and revealed what he's up to now. "He was a sweetheart. I remember he got me a radio controlled car right after we met," Oliver, now 33, says of Ritter. "He was really nice to me on the set and I think he kind of knew that I was very new to all of it. It’s »

Disney is digging deep into its well of animated movies, putting a live action prequel to the 1992 blockbuster Aladdin into development, entitled Genies. The studio has brought on screenwriters Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (Friday the 13th) to write the screenplay for the project, described as a "live-action comedy adventure" by The Hollywood Reporter.

The Most Vicious Zingers from Past Celebrity Roasts

30 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Tonight, The Roast of Justin Bieber will air on Comedy Central and the masses will get what they’ve long been waiting for: a public shaming of Justin Bieber. Of course, some of the special’s most notable put-downs of the pop star have been publicized, including insults from the likes of Roast master Kevin Hart (“Justin’s Canadian. He’s actually considered American, because no Canadian has ever been this much of an asshole”), Shaquille O’Neal (“Last year you were ranked the fifth most hated person of all time. Kim Jong-un didn’t even score that low, and he uses your music to fuckin’ torture people”), and Jeffrey Ross (“You’ve become a cocky little shit. You are the King Joffrey of pop”).

While Bieber’s burns are definitely scorching, he’s hardly the only Roastee to get royally humiliated during their special. As we count down to The Roast of Justin Bieber, »

Hulu Sets April 20 Release Date For ‘Deadbeat’ Season Two

5 March 2015 12:21 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Hulu has more stories to tell about an apathetic New York City dude who sees ghosts. The streaming video platform announced its original supernatural comedy series Deadbeat will return for a second season on April 20, 2015.

Deadbeat features Kevin (played by Tyler Labine), a medium who is competent at helping ghosts complete their unfinished business but utterly incapable of making his own life better. Season two will include special guest stars James Franco (who just signed on to star in Hulu’s upcoming adaptation of a Stephen King novel), Danny DeVito, Fred Armisen, Michael Ian Black, Zach Levi, Gilbert Gottfried, Finn Wittrock, and Jim Norton.

When Deadbeat debuted back in April 2014, we noted how Kevin’s lazy behavior and appearance appeals to the binge-watching, pot-smoking crowd. It seems appropriate, then, that Hulu has opted to release Deadbeat season two on 4/20, a day renowned for marijuana smoking. The teaser and key art »

James Franco, Danny DeVito, Fred Armisen & More Guest Starring on Hulu’s Deadbeat Season 2, Teaser Video Revealed

5 March 2015 10:30 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A stoner and a slacker, Kevin “Pac” Pacalioglu has trouble paying rent, but on the plus side, he has the awesome ability to communicate with ghosts. Tyler Labine stars in Deadbeat, a Hulu original series that debuted last year with a stellar 10-episode season. Channeling his excellent horror comedy performances in Tucker & Dale vs. Evil and Reaper, Labine makes for a delightfully unconventional ghost whisperer who will be joined by an interesting lineup of guest stars in the sophomore season that's slated to premiere in April.

Deadline reports that James Franco, Danny DeVito, Fred Armisen, Michael Ian Black, Gilbert Gottfried, Jim Norton, Zachary Levi and Finn Wittrock play guest starring roles in Deadbeat’s second season. TVLine revealed in January that Levi plays the ghost of Abraham Lincoln in the ninth episode of season two, but it's uncertain at this time who the other guest actors play, though you can »

'Happy Gilmore' Reunion Video: Adam Sandler & Bob Barker Fight Again!

5 March 2015 8:01 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Adam Sandler's second movie after leaving Saturday Night Live was Happy Gilmore, which has grown a huge cult following over the years and helped launch the comedian as one of today's biggest box office stars. It is probably best remembered for an epic fight on the golf course between Adam Sandler and legendary game show host Bob Barker, which infamously ended with The Price Is Right headmaster declaring, "Now you've had enough...Bitch!" Well, that old grudge match is back on in a new video for the upcoming charity event Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs, which airs on Comedy Central this Sunday, March 8.

Jon Stewart will host Night of Too Many Stars, which will raise money with Nyca (New York Collaborates for Autism) to support programs covering everything from the intensive education kids with autism needs at a young age to social training »

Paul Rudd, John Oliver, Louis C.K. Go All Out for ‘Night of Too Many Stars’ Fundraiser

1 March 2015 9:54 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It takes a commitment to pull off a star-packed comedy benefit show that has raised $18 million and counting for autism-related education and support programs since 2003.

Nowhere was that commitment more vividly displayed than with Paul Rudd’s performance Saturday at Comedy Central’s “Night of Too Many Stars” taping, emceed by Jon Stewart at New York’s Beacon Theater.

Simply put, Rudd bared his soul and other bodily cavities for the sake of the cause, namely raising money for the New York Collaborates for Autism org. Using a “Wheel of Fortune”-style spinning wheel dubbed “Wheel of Rudd,” the actor invited audience members to spin for the chance to do something to him.

One gave him a slap, one landed on “Travolta face-touching,” a reference to last Sunday’s Oscar telecast, and one landed on “baby bird,” which involved an audience member chewing up a few bites of a Zabar »

Why Eddie Murphy is, once and for all, done

21 February 2015 5:55 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Eddie Murphy was a miracle. Today, there is an industry around the show that is designed to be a sort of star-making assembly line, and I think many of the people who have used the show as a springboard to other things deserve that success completely. But when Eddie Murphy made his debut on the show in 1980, "Saturday Night Live" wasn't even guaranteed a spot on TV for much longer. After all, the original cast was gone by that point. The new cast, including Denny Dillon, Gilbert Gottfried, Charles Rocket, Ann Risley, and Joe Piscopo, seemed like a poor replacement for the likes of Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Gilda Radner, and Bill Murray. I was a ten year old nascent comedy nerd, and for me, it was mystifying to see something that had been the absolute center of the comedy universe suddenly drop completely out of relevance. Everything about that »
