Ron Swanson’s swan song came with some tears and other bodily excretions for actor Nick Offerman. On Thursday’s “Tonight Show,” he told Jimmy Fallon about the sad moment shared between the cast of “Parks and Recreation” as their sitcom wrapped.

“Everyone was crying,” Offerman said, “except for I was vomiting and crying and filling my pants with oatmeal, the saddest oatmeal.”

Offerman wasn’t aware he was saying his last line when he delivered it, however, admitting: “You would think I would have noticed, but on the last day, »

Nick Offerman's Take on "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" Is Just So Real

19 December 2014 9:20 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

To kick off the one-week countdown to Christmas, Nick Offerman stopped by The Tonight Show on Thursday to share his own version of "'Twas the Night Before Christmas." As one might expect from Offerman, his take on the classic holiday story is a bit more straightforward. He describes the sleeping children, who were "dreaming of sugarplums and other random sh*t," later mentioning the fat old man who broke into their house. Watch his funny spin on the story above, then check out more must-see viral videos, plus the Parks and Recreation final season trailer! »

Best of Late Night TV: Orlando Bloom Wants 'Hobbit' Porno, Amy Adams Struggles at 'Holiday Flip Cup' (Video)

18 December 2014 11:10 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Amy Adams played "Holiday Flip Cup" with Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" on Thursday, and ... she did her best. She's hosting "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, with One Direction as the musical guest, so hopefully Amy is better at hosting than playing drinking games. But her little "ack!" sound when things go wrong is pretty cute.

The amazing Nick Offerman, also a guest on "The Tonight Show," read a "shortened, more casual version" of ''Twas the Night Before Christmas." Love his Christmas sweater. Honestly.

Jimmy Kimmel - and yes he really wore that red Christmas suit - welcomed Mel Brooks, who didn't want to sit in the chair next to the desk. »

Parks And Recreation Season Seven Trailer Takes A Quantum Leap To 2017

17 December 2014 12:49 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Prepare to say goodbye to the unforgettable residents of Pawnee, as the seventh and final season of Parks And Recreation is set to debut in less than a month. Following the risque cliffhanger at the end of last season, NBC (via EW) has now dropped the first teaser to remind us why we’ll be tuning in to say farewell.

The first six seasons followed Amy Poehler as head of Pawnee’s Parks and Recreation department, Leslie Knope. Along with her motley crew of colleagues, the team fought tooth and nail against the hypocrisy and hilarity of small-town life. However, the parting coda of season six catapulted three years forward into 2017 – to a ‘distant future’ – and this is where the teaser picks up.

Running at a brief thirty seconds, it’s the perfect glimpse into a Pawnean future. Leslie and Ben dally with a hovering delivery drone bot on their doorstep, »

The Future of 'Parks and Rec' Is Here! (Video)

17 December 2014 3:15 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The trailer for the seventh and final season of "Parks and Recreation" is here, and it's a blast from the future. The trailer takes place in 2017, same as the surprising season 6 finale, and things look weirder than ever before.

Future Pawnee is full of surprises, like the drone that appears on Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Ben's (Adam Scott) doorstep. Maybe it's not all bad news, though. It looks like "Parks and Rec" crew we've come to love is living large in 2017; for one, Andy (Chris Pratt) has his own awesome ninja TV show! (Hmm, is that anything like a "Cowboy Ninja Viking"?) Get a glimpse of what the future holds for Tom (Aziz Ansari), Jerry/Gary/Terry (Jim O'Heir), April (Aubrey Plaza) and the rest of the crew.

When you're done, grab a hankie and watch Chris Pratt and Nick Offerman's tribute to Lil Sebastian at the show's wrap party. »

Chris Pratt Sings a Sweet Goodbye To ‘Parks and Recreation’

16 December 2014 8:20 AM, PST | | See recent news »

For six seasons we’ve watched Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt) pursue moderate-sized dreams of stardom on Parks and Recreation. His band Mouse Rat’s biggest gig to date was the Pawnee Unity Concert, where they were joined on stage by the legendary Duke Silver (Nick Offerman) to pay tribute to a beloved horse. With the delightful NBC comedy coming to an end next year (no, You’Re the one who’s crying!) it’s only fitting that the entire cast and crew joined together in song to say goodbye. Jesus, the final season hasn’t even started and we’re already a mess.

Pratt sang “5,000 Candles in the Wind” (affectionately known to many as “Bye-bye Li’l Sebastian”) at the Parks and Recreation wrap party on Sunday. Yes, just like when he raps Eminem, the silky sounds of Pratt’s voice bring down the house. The final season of Parks and Rec begins on Jan. »

Watch Chris Pratt Perform at the Parks and Rec Wrap Party

16 December 2014 8:14 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

During the Parks and Recreation wrap party, Chris Pratt hit the stage with his costar Nick Offerman to say goodbye to the show in a very fitting way - singing the tribute song to Li'l Sebastian, Pawnee's favorite mini horse. He sang "5,000 Candles in the Wind" as the crowd sang along, adding to the list of emotional moments for the cast as the show comes to an end. Last week, the Parks and Recreation cast tweeted about their last day of filming, with Adam Scott saying it best: "Sad day, y'all." Watch Chris and Nick's wrap-party performance above, then treat yo self with these gifts for Parks and Recreation fans. »

Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups trailer is high on Christian Bale, excess, and temptation

15 December 2014 1:36 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Terrence Malick is an enigma. 

The infamously press-shy writer-director worked sporadically at best until very recently, taking years off between films.  After The Tree of Life was released in 2011, Malick turned around and released To the Wonder before embarking on what seems to be two back-to-back films, with a largely overlapping cast in Knight of Cups and a yet-untitled film.

Of his two upcoming films, Knight of Cups is the one that audiences will get a look at first.  Hot on the heels of the announcement that the film will premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February, the trailer for the film has dropped online, offering the first glimpse at Christian Bale and co.

The trailer leaves a lot to the imagination as it doesn’t offer any concrete proof as to what the plot of the film is other than it’s a look at a man (played »

Watch: Mind-Blowing First Trailer for Terrence Malick's 'Knight of Cups'

15 December 2014 1:20 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This is heaven for Malick fans. Set to bow in competition at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival, his long-awaited "Knight of Cups" starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman has its first trailer—and it's a dark, crazy ride through Malick-land. This tale of celebrity excess is shot by "Tree of Life," "Gravity" and "Birdman" Dp Emmanuel Lubezki, with gorgeous and surreal images that recall Malick's "Tree" and "To the Wonder." "Knight of Cups" will be Malick's first trip to Berlin since 1999, when he won the Golden Bear for his WWII epic "The Thin Red Line." The eclectic cast of "Knight of Cups" may or may not also include Jason Clarke, Wes Bentley, Nick Offerman and Joel Kinnaman, as Malick is notorious from slashing swaths from his films. (Rachel Weisz, Michael Sheen and Amanda Peet were all cut entirely from his divisive 2012 romance "To the »

’15 Sundance Film Fest: Rupert Goold’s True Story & Ken Kwapis’ A Walk in the Woods

15 December 2014 12:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

It’s a film starring Sundance Film Fest creator Robert Redford and another film starring Sundance mainstay James Franco that are the latest and last items to officially pad the 2015 edition. Ken KwapisA Walk in the Woods (surely to be discussed as a companion piece to Gus Van Sant’s heavy Cannes contender The Sea of Trees) and Rupert Goold’s directorial debut, True Story – a story that is stranger than fiction close out the Premieres selections. Also announced we find items for New Frontier, Sundance Kids and the From the Collection items. And while the line-up is complete, the actual final piece to the puzzle might actually be a secret screening or two. This year I wager on Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups playing as a non official showing. Here’s the press release.

Terrence Malick’s mysterious 'Knight of Cups' to debut at Berlin Film Festival

15 December 2014 7:46 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The first paparazzi photos from Terrence Malick’s "Knight of Cups" surfaced in October 2012. Featuring Christian Bale and Natalie Portman playing in the ocean, it looked as poetic and narrative-less as anyone could hope from the "Badlands" and "Tree of Life" director. Since the shoot, Malick shot a second film (set around the Austin music scene... we think) and fought a few legal battles over his "Tree of Life" IMAX companion film "Voyage of Time." So we’ll forgive him that it’s taken this long for "Knight of Cups" to actually make its way on to the theater circuit and towards an actual release date. Monday morning, the 65th Berlin Film Festival announced the first seven films to be included in its 2015 Competition program. And whaddaya know — "Knight of Cups" is on it! Starring Bale, Portman, and Cate Blanchett, the film is about… well, we’re not sure. When »

Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons Cast in Fargo Season 2

14 December 2014 6:02 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man) and Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad) are the two latest actors to join the cast of Fargo Season 2. I like both of these actors, and this will be a great project for them to take on. 

It was previously reported that Rachel Keller was cast in the series and that Jeffrey Donovan (Burn Notice) and Nick Offerman (Parks and Rec) were in discussions. Donovan will play a man named Dodd, Keller has been cast as Simone, and if Offerman signs up, he’ll take on a character named Carl. 

According to THR, Dunst will play a character named Peggy Blomquist, “a beautician with big-city dreams who is trying to figure out who she really is and what she really wants as she struggles with societal expectations.” As for Plemons, he will play Ed, “Peggy's husband and a butcher's assistant who wants to be supportive of his wife's self-discovery »

'The Night Shift,' 'The Blacklist' & 'Undateable' lead NBC mid-season schedule

12 December 2014 12:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

NBC's semi-successful summer lineup has now become a core part of its winter/spring schedule, with "The Night Shift" and "Undateable" joining a crowded mid-season roster that will include "Allegiance," "The Slap," "A.D.," the return of "The Blacklist," and more. Earlier this month, NBC announced the first part of its mid-season plan with the compressed final season of "Parks and Recreation,"(*) which will be concluding before half of NBC's other mid-season shows even get to premiere. This is the same "drama-heavy mid-season schedule" that was the reason NBC opted to sell Tina Fey's "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" to Netflix, rather than try to squeeze it in here. Not counting "Parks" (which, again, NBC considers old business being dealt with as quickly as possible), the network will bring eight shows off the bench in February, March and April, and all but two ("Undateable" and the new "One Big Happy") are dramatic. »
