6 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

In his latest parody, James Corden spoofs the boy band phenomenon that was so overwhelmingly popular in the 90s and 2000s. A mockumentary, which aired on Thursday on “The Late Late Show,” follows the rise and fall of the (fake) band Thr33way. For this, Corden enlisted some help from comedians Jordan Peele and Nick Kroll. The result is simply hilarious.

“In a time when *Nsync, Backstreet Boys and others dominated the boy band landscape, three mavericks came together to form Thr33way —a boy band that didn’t hide from its sexuality,” reads the description of the clip on the show’s official YouTube channel.

“Boy band music shouldn’t be about kissing you on the cheek, it should be so much more than that,” says Corden on the doc. And Kroll adds, »

‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ Begs America to ‘Never Fjorget’ Fake Swedish Attack — Watch

21 February 2017 7:10 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Fresh off the news of last week’s late night ratings sweep, “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” keeps the hits coming. In a cheeky new bit, Colbert skewers President Donald Trump over comments he made about a terror attack in Sweden that never happened.

“You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden,” said Trump at a rally in Florida over the weekend. The joke practically writes itself as the camera cuts back to Colbert, a baffled smirk on his adorable mug. “No one. No one would believe that,” he pauses for laughter. “Well, not no one, but maybe someone who skips their intelligence briefings.”

The Director of 'Best Worst Movie' Explains The Murder, Darkness, and Weird Sweetness of His 'Girlfriend's Day'

16 February 2017 6:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

A former pro now down on his luck decides to get back in the game for one last score, only to find himself wrapped up in a murder mystery where nothing is as it seems and no one can be trusted. That's a tried and true formula for a movie, right? But we're not talking about a bank robber or a car thief or a mobster. We're talking about a greeting card writer.  Girlfriend's Day stars Bob Odenkirk as said writer, who is trying to land a highly coveted job writing the official card for the titular new holiday. But he's not the only one who wants the gig, and when his fellow rockstar greeting card writers start getting murdered, it seems like this may become a life or death assignment. Yes, it's kind of a weird premise, but what makes...

Watch Bob Odenkirk Impersonate Stephen Colbert in Bizarre 'Late Show' Sketch

16 February 2017 6:29 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Bob Odenkirk and Stephen Colbert took turns portraying each other on The Late Show on Wednesday. Odenkirk was on set to promote his upcoming movie Girlfriend's Day.

Odenkirk's Colbert was an angry, humorless comedian in a made-up film titled Late Show: The Movie. Odenkirk communicated with the audience via dismissive commands along the lines of "Shut up and sit down!" and "Clap, you pigs!" "Did everyone hear about Iran secretly testing nuclear missiles?" Odenkirk's late-night host quipped. "Who cares?"

Colbert returned with his own Odenkirk impression. Then the two men »

The series that made nature documentaries cool returns with an epic six-part sequel on February 18th, and composer Hans Zimmer stopped by “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” to play the sweeping theme song.

Newswire: Bob Odenkirk gets caught in a web of greeting-card intrigue in a Girlfriend’s Day exclusive

14 February 2017 2:00 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

In the Netflix original film Girlfriend’s Day, Bob Odenkirk stars as a Ray Wentworth, a washed-up greeting card writer who gets caught up in a web of eccentric intrigue and murder when he enters the race to create the perfect card for a new holiday: Girlfriend’s Day. Directed by documentarian Michael Paul Stephenson (Best Worst Movie, The American Scream), the film not only creates the entirely new genre of “greeting card comedy noir,” it’s also got the sort of dark, deadpan vibe that appeals to our sensibilities here at The A.V. Club.

And, in a roundabout way, The A.V. Club helped make the film happen. You see, after reading an interview with Bob Odenkirk published on this very site, Stephenson reached out to him to invite him to the L.A. premiere of The American Scream. After the screening, Odenkirk asked Stephenson if he had »

Don’t make promises you aren’t prepared to keep, Stephen Miller.

When Trump’s senior policy advisor offered “to go on any show, anywhere, anytime” to discuss the administration’s unproven claims of election fraud, Stephen Colbert took him up on it. In a new video released by “The Late Show,” Miller’s face has been edited into various popular television shows, specifically the more gruesome ones.

The video opens with Miller’s unedited mug saying forcefully, “You have people that have no right to vote in this country, registered to vote, canceling out the franchise of lawful citizens of this country. That’s the story we should be talking about, and I’m prepared to go on any show, anywhere, anytime, and repeat it.”

Which Current TV Couple Has the Best Relationship? — IndieWire Critics Survey

14 February 2017 8:50 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Which current TV couple is giving you relationship goals?

Todd VanDerWerff (@tvoti), Vox

Whenever people ask me what TV show is the best currently running, my go-to answer is “The Americans” for a variety of reasons (it’s really that good, it’s one most people haven’t seen, etc.). But a big reason for that is thanks to the sterling marriage of Philip and Elizabeth Jennings, whose icy cold love fills my heart with joy. Think about it: When the series began, these two spies were just pretending to have a functional relationship — only to have realized that their pretending was essentially the same as something real. »

James Franco’s ‘The Disaster Artist’ Premiering at SXSW

7 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

James Franco’s ‘The Disaster Artist” has been set for a world premiere the upcoming South by Southwest film Festival.

SXSW made the announcement Tuesday. Franco directed “The Disaster Artist,” based on the making of Tommy Wiseau’s incomprehensible “The Room,” which some describe as the “’Citizen Kane’ of bad movies.” Franco also stars along with sibling Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Josh Hutcherson, Ari Graynor, Jacki Weaver and Alison Brie.

The program is also attempting to set up a screening of the original “The Room,” which first screened in 2003.

The festival, which is heading into its 24th year, will open March 10 in Austin with the previously announced Terrence Malick movie “Song to Song” with Rooney Mara, Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender, and Natalie Portman. It announced most of the lineup a week ago, including world premieres of “Baby Driver” and “The Ballad of Lefty Brown.”

The new announcement includes the SXSW Midnighters section of 10 genre films, »
