Twin Peaks Pegged For Summer 2017 Premiere, David Lynch Reportedly Helmed All 18 Episodes

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Cast your mind back to October of 2014, a time when the largely dormant Twin Peaks fanbase was sent into a collective tailspin upon hearing news that the cult classic would return via limited series.

Fast forward five months and change and the abrupt departure of series creator David Lynch threatened to throw a spanner in the works, after the prestigious filmmaker bowed out of the small-screen revival citing “complications.” That all came to a head in the weeks thereafter and, thankfully, Lynch was back on board.

Whether said complication proved to be a storm in a tea cup is something we’ll likely never know, but the one thing we do know for sure is that Twin Peaks is coming back in 2017 and, according to Ray Wise, is being aligned for a summer premiere over at Showtime.

Word comes by of the Sdcc panel for Batman: The Killing Joke, where »

Lin-Manuel Miranda to Narrate Hamilton on Comedy Central’s ‘Drunk History’

21 July 2016 6:45 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Comedy Central’s “Drunk History” will return for its fourth season on Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 10:30 p.m., and the ten-episode season will bring a slew of guest stars.

The season 4 information was announced Thursday at Comic-Con in San Diego.

The new season will transport viewers back in time to hang out with the founding fathers — and Broadway’s “Hamilton” superstar Lin-Manuel Miranda will narrate the rivalry between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr.

Paget Brewster will narrate the friendship between First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, played by Busy Phillips, and Soviet soldier Lyudmila Pavlichenko, portrayed by Mae Whitman, and their fight for women’s rights. Allan McLeod explains how the divided dispute on whether British actor William Macready (Jack McBrayer) or American actor Edwin Forrest (David Koechner) was the better thespian.

Other featured players include Billie Joe Armstrong, Steve Berg, Rachel Bilson, Michael Cera, Josh Charles, Kat Dennings, Ben Folds, Dave Grohl, Tony Hale »

Top 5 Will Ferrell movies just in time for his birthday

Top 5 Will Ferrell movies just in time for his birthdayTop 5 Will Ferrell movies just in time for his birthdayAmanda Wood7/16/2016 10:00:00 Am

There is no shortage of funny actors in Hollywood, with people making the leap from places like Saturday Night Live and Second City to the big screen on an almost daily basis.

However, there is nobody quite like Will Ferrell in the business. Going from the funniest guy on SNL to the funniest guy on the big screen isn’t always an easy transition, but Ferrell has proven that his skills are suitable for more than just sketch comedy. Don’t get us wrong, we loved him on SNL, but we’re thankful we get to experience longer-form Ferrell as well.

Today, Will Ferrell turns 49 years old. We’re not sure how he’ll be celebrating, but we hope it involves a huge party reminiscent of Old School, »

Krampus DVD Review

25 April 2016 3:03 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

At the most wonderful time of the year (Yes, we know it’s not ‘that’ time but stick with it), what better way to celebrate Yuletide than summoning a cloven-hooved goaty maverick to torment your family and loved ones?

Michael Dougherty’s Krampus is a bit of a strange beast: part family comedy, part campy horror. The first thirty minutes or so follow well-trodden tracks: dysfunctional family squabbles and the relatives from hell, all stuck together in the pressure cooker of the festive period and enforced jollity.

It all sort of ambles along smoothly enough and the casting is generally solid. There’s some funny moments when Sarah (Toni Collette) and Tom’s (Adam Scott) home is invaded by Sarah’s sister, Linda (Alison Tolman) who arrives for Christmas, with her gun loving husband, Howard (David Koechner), freaky and unpleasant kids, and acidic aunt.

David Lynch’s New ‘Twin Peaks’ Cast Includes Michael Cera, Monica Bellucci, Trent Reznor, Sky Ferreira & More

25 April 2016 10:17 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It was no secret that David Lynch‘s new season of Twin Peaks (Twin P3aks is the name I’m trying to get off the ground) will be big — around 18 hours in length, if early reports are to be believed, perhaps split into two new seasons — and, this being a David Lynch production, contain a few off-kilter casting choices to fill out its many new roles. The names thrown around have been hugely promising, eyebrow-raising, or some combination: Jennifer Jason Leigh, Laura Dern, Naomi Watts, Jim Belushi, Robert Forster, Ashley Judd, Amanda Seyfried, Tom Sizemore — whether they’re previous collaborators or newcomers to the Lynch fold, all making more uncertain the matter of what, exactly, he and Mark Frost have planned.

Consider Showtime’s latest press release a total explosion of that. Pulling back a red curtain on what’s thus far been an intensely secretive project, the network has unveiled Twin Peaks‘ cast, »

Big Names On "Twin Peaks" Cast List Of 217

25 April 2016 9:43 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The new "Twin Peaks" isn't slated to debut on Showtime until 2017, but a flurry of speculation about it happened last week with a tweet from Go For Locations indicating that filming had wrapped on the "first two seasons" of the series.

The episode count for the David Lynch-directed series was always in question, but that tweet suggested we'd be getting even more episodes than originally planned. Said tweet has since been deleted, so we'll have to wait to see how that pans out.

in the meantime in more official news, Showtime, Lynch and Mark Frost has released the official cast list for the new series with a whopping 217 names across the various episodes - a list that includes some real surprise big name inclusions such as Monica Bellucci, Michael Cera, Naomi Watts, Tim Roth, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Eddie Vedder, Ashley Judd, Ernie Hudson, Jim Belushi, Richard Chamberlain, Laura Dern, »
