“Do something funny for money” was the slogan of NBC’s inaugural “Red Nose Day” telecast, a live three-hour show that helped raise more than $21 million to aid children living in poverty in the U.S. and abroad.
The telecast that originated Thursday from New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom went off with only a few minor hitches that were probably not visible to the viewing audience at home.
Seth Meyers, David Duchovny and Jane Krakowski each hosted an hour of the program that blended pitches from stars such as Julianne Moore, Olivia Wilde and Gwenyth Paltrow with taped comedy segments produced by Funny or Die and in-studio bits from “Saturday Night Live’s” Colin Jost, Michael Che and Jay Pharaoh, as well as Billy Eichner and Josh Groban.
In between the entertainment, short films featuring celebrity appeals on behalf of specific causes struck a serious note. Jack Black traveled »

Coming-of-age, cancer, romance, and trying to survive the complex world of high school? It sounds like a manipulative concoction, one pre-mixed to score maximum tears, but the buzz on "Me And Earl And The Dying Girl" is the complete opposite. In fact, we wrote in our review out of Sundance—where the movie picked up the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award—that this "wonderfully funny, bittersweet, and inventive picture will headlock even the most cynical-hearted viewer and turn him or her into emotional mush." Sounds good to me and a new trailer for the movie has arrived hitting all of those buttons hard. Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, and starring Thomas Mann, Olivia Cooke, R.J. Cyler, Nick Offerman, Molly Shannon, Jon Bernthal, and Connie Britton, the film tells the story of Greg, and his pal Earl who come together and make life just a little better for Rachel, »

"We make films. We've been making them since we were little..." Fox Searchlight has debuted a second charming trailer for Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, it's actually a UK trailer (hence two quotes from UK outlets), but it's still just as charming. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is one of our favorite films from Sundance 2015 this January, and it's one we hope finds its audience when it hits theaters this summer. Thomas Mann stars as Greg along with Olivia Cooke, plus Rj Cyler as Earl, and appearances by Connie Britton, Nick Offerman, Molly Shannon and Jon Bernthal. Don't skip out on this one, it really is something special and we'll be supporting the film all the way through release. Enjoy! Here's the second trailer for Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's Me and Earl and the Dying Girl via YouTube: Read Alex's review of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl »

Fox Searchlight and Indian Paintbrush have released a new international trailer for Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (American Horror Story), the film was this year’s big winner at the Sundance Film Festival, following in the footsteps of Whiplash and Fruitvale Station by taking home both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award. I was one of those that caught the movie at Sundance and yeah, it’s really, really good. Based on the Jesse Andrews novel of the same name, the film revolves around a Criterion Collection-obsessed high school senior (Thomas Mann) who is talked into spending time with an acquaintance classmate (Olivia Cooke) who has recently been diagnosed with cancer. It’s a film that wears its heart on its sleeve, but if you refuse the need to be cynical for two hours, it’ll hit you with an emotional gut punch. »

Sometimes The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon is hilarious, and sometimes it’s just weirdly awesome. While not especially funny, getting Hugh Jackman, Susan Sarandon, and Nick Offerman to sit down for a quick game of Password is beyond awesome.
There’s little to explain, except that what really pushes this over the edge is Jimmy’s own inability to find that perfect clue. The frustration shoots out of him like he’s sitting on a geyser.
The real question here is, why doesn’t someone bring this show back? Update it a bit, maybe, but who wouldn’t love to see some stars under pressure on a regular basis?
Check it out above, and keep tuning in.

Real comedy still happens on late night, we can prove it. If you like Conan comedy gold, Fallon friendliness, cutesy Corden, list-making Letterman, kneedy Kimmel, and all the rest, I hope you’ll enjoy this column too.
Last night on late night, Tom Hanks and Dave talked dodging drones with Ron Howard, a “sex mathematician” explained hormones to Conan, Hugh Jackman and Nick Offerman were on The Tonight Show, Mariah Carey went on Kimmel, and The Men in Blazers broke down Premier League relegation battle drama.

Hanks is adept with the selfie stick. Like, actually.

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.
Hugh Jackman and Nick Offerman (looking Sharp without a mustache) were on "The Tonight Show" Monday night, and they played "Password" with Jimmy Fallon and Susan Sarandon (who wore a Rangers jersey). Hugh and Nick made the best team, and not just the best-looking. But they really did look good. In his sit-down interview, Hugh showed Jimmy the Aussie way to eat vegemite. He randomly broke out a toaster and demonstrated in a "public service announcement for Australia." Jimmy Fallon took a moment on "The Tonight Show" to thank David Letterman and wish him well in his retirement. He also showed a picture from his eighth grade yearbook, including »

There have been some really sexy Chris Pratt moments, but his new feature in GQ's June issue may just take the cake. He smolders on the cover, and in another must-see photo, he's pictured drinking a beer while standing on a chair. It's a fittingly casual moment for the funny actor, who opened up about everything from his relationship with his wife, Anna Faris, to why he sends pictures of poop to his Parks and Recreation costar Nick Offerman. In the interview, Chris also talked about how things have changed since he's become more famous - and more fit. Keep reading for some hilarious quotes and sexy snaps of Chris, then see his sweetest family snaps and check out the full feature on GQ.com. On the time before he was a household name: "I've had those moments where I was like the guy holding the purse at events and »
Last week, WhatCulture.com took a look at 20 actors whose past roles in comic book films people totally forgot about. Whether it was a young Sam Rockwell’s appearance in 1990’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or Nick Offerman’s unrecognizable role in Sin City, the actors listed in the article highlighted how easily past roles can be overlooked only to be pleasantly rediscovered once an actor hits a new level of fame.
Some of the actors explored went on to find fame through another comic book role, appearing in popular shows like The Walking Dead or film franchises like those that make up the Marvel Cinematic Universe, while others found fame in non-comic roles. Some even had established careers already, with their appearances in comic book films being forgettable simply due to the unmemorable status of the role or film itself.

Fox Searchlight has released the first Me and Earl and the Dying Girl clip online. The film is an adaptation of the Jesse Andrews novel of the same name and revolves around a Criterion Collection-obsessed high school senior (Thomas Mann) who is talked into spending time with an acquaintance classmate (Olivia Cooke) who has recently been diagnosed with cancer. In this clip, we get a look at why Rj Cyler, who plays Earl, is such a scene-stealer with his insightful, deadpan, and funny observations about a friend who’s afraid of friendship. While I’m sure this is a movie that will have knives out from cynics (who aren’t necessarily wrong, but they’re making an active decision to slice up an earnest movie), I hope it’s as big a hit with audiences as it was when it received a lot of love at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. »

Nick Offerman is the latest star to board the upcoming McDonald's biopic.
He will play Dick McDonald, who is coerced into giving more of the business over to investor Ray Kroc (Keaton), who goes on to take full control.
Kroc worked alongside Mac and Dick McDonald at their fast food restaurant in southern California, before buying the company and turning it into a household name.
It was recently announced that The Founder will be released in the Us on November 25, 2016. »
Anna Kendrick just released a video with "Glamour" called "More Shower Thoughts," a follow-up to Nick Offerman's own "Shower Thoughts" clip. Watch, laugh, sigh. "They should announce a sequel to 'Groundhog Day' and then just re-release the original" is probably my favorite. Sounds good in a tweet, sounds great as a shower thought. I don't believe for a second she thinks about the emotional lives of her belts, but whatever -- we think about nonsense in the shower, so it works. »

The May 1 release of Avengers: Age of Ultron marks the "official" start of the 2015 Summer Movie Season and with that in mind, it's only appropriate to offer up a look forward at what's ahead over the next four months. What is ahead over the next four monthsc Well, a lot of movies that cost a lot of money with a few smaller features mixed in for good measure, and as much as some of us may lament the fact studios have become so franchise focused, it's hard not to admit a desire to see some of these bigger features. As a means of whittling down the flock of films arriving over the next several months I've chosen to take a look at my 20 most anticipated, which does mean there are bound to be some titles I probably ought to mention, but didn't make the list for a variety of reasons. »

Who loves velociraptors, pizza with anchovies, and Gwyneth Paltrow's 2010 movie Country Strong? Chris Pratt!

Chris Pratt has already begun promoting his latest film, Jurassic World, and after all the thrilling trailers and those swoon-worthy GIFs, we can't really contain our excitement.

So I called Allison my publicist and said, 'Hey, I know »
Chris Pratt said a lot of things in his Reddit Ama today (April 24) -- like how Nick Offerman sends him photos of the poops he makes, and how he and wife Anna Faris are so much alike. But the most important detail is that Pratt -- star of forthcoming "Jurassic World," StarLord from "Guardians of the Galaxy," the loveable Andy from "Parks & Recreation -- is on the right team when it comes to "Game of Thrones." And that is Team Arya, who should win the seat at the Iron Throne by a landslide. 'Cause. "I am a huge Game of Thrones fan. I love Arya Stark the most," he replied to one users' question.
