Joseph Gordon-Levitt Dresses as Robin and Makes Out with a Man in Drag During Harvard's Hasty Pudding Man of the Year Ceremony

7 February 2016 | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A severe snowstorm couldn't keep Joseph Gordon-Levitt away from Cambridge, Massachusetts, Friday as he braved the elements to be feted and roasted by men in drag from the Hasty Pudding Theatricals for their 2016 Man of the Year award. Gordon-Levitt - the 50th recipient of the award presented annually by Harvard University's distinguished theater troupe - took the good-natured ribbing in stride, even as the evening's emcees poked fun at his Oscar snubs and less-than-stellar box-office returns. The decision by the actor - who starred last year in The Walk - to drop out of Columbia University to return to acting was a recurring joke, »

Chris Pratt Confirms Filming Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Is Just as Fun as You Thought It Would Be

3 February 2016 9:40 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Although we already had an inkling that the set of Guardians of the Galaxy is pretty much the most hilarious place to be, Zoe Saldana confirmed it once and for all by posting an adorable shot of her laughing alongside director Sean Gunn and costars Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista. Gunn also captured a few great peeks of the cast checking out their scripts during rehearsals for the film's highly anticipated sequel, but it's Pratt who truly hammered home the feelings of deep, burning, incurable jealousy that you too aren't in the movie. He uploaded an Instagram photo of Peter Quill's beloved Walkman with a hysterical, long-winded caption that he's becoming known for. Feels good to be back in action on Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2!!! I can't even tell you how excited I am. Ok I'll try. I'm ecstatic. I'm bursting with joy. I'm overwhelmed by feelings of enthusiasm, »

Steve Agee Joins Marvel's "Guardians" Sequel

3 February 2016 8:50 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Comedian Steve Agee ("The Sarah Silverman Program") has reportedly scored a role in Marvel Studios' "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2".

Agee has yet to be seen in any behind-the-scenes photos from the set, though the comedian is a friend of the film's director James Gunn and it's only expected to be a small role or cameo rather than a major part.

Agee's casting was revealed by Doug Benson on the Doug Loves Movies podcast (via IGN) saying: "[Steve] just found out because he's in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, he has to shoot that bulls--t instead of being here with us today."

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" is currently prepping ahead of actual shooting next week and a May 2017 release. Chris Pratt has posted a photo of a much beloved prop from the film, along with a great personal message. Check that out below:

Astronaut Comedy The Something Recruits Seth Rogen, Bill Hader And Zach Galifianakis

3 February 2016 7:58 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Comedic trio Seth Rogen, Bill Hader and Zach Galifianakis have enlisted for astronaut flick The Something, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Centering on a band of wayward explorers lost in space, the pitch comes by way of Rodney Rothman (22 Jump Street, Grudge Match), who is poised to make his directorial debut with the space-set comedy. Rogen will have a hand in producing The Something under his Point Grey Pictures banner, while Universal will handle distribution now that the project has been greenlit.

Cast astray in the inky blackness of space, Rothman’s feature will find Rogen, Hader and Galifianakis’ astronauts marooned among the stars for years, until they happen across another ship. But Event Horizon this is not, and given that the writer-director has cast such an impressive trio, it’s little wonder why Universal acted quickly to issue the go-ahead. It marks something of a reunion for Rogen and Hader, »

Chris Pratt Loves Awesome Mix Vol. 2 (I Guess)

3 February 2016 5:43 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Chris Pratt is an American treasure if I do say so myself. The guy first made a splash in such a big pond by playing Andy Dwyer on NBC's Parks And Rec, and then got the Marvel bug which caused him to play Peter Quill aka "Star-Lord" in Guardians Of The Galaxy. Now, to show just how appreciative he is of all the success he's been having lately, Pratt posted on Instagram a first look at 'Awesome Mix Vol. 2' along with a ramble about how the pen is mightier than the sword and hyperbole or something.

Anyways, it's just another example of how cool Pratt is, how awesome it is that he's working with Marvel to pump out well made films, and that production for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 has really kicked into overdrive (I almost forgot to mention that).

Feels good to be back in action »

2 February 2016 1:46 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In August 2014, director James Gunn and Marvel Studios successfully blew our minds by introducing us to the Guardians of the Galaxy. In 2017, the same ragtag bunch of scoundrels will be back on the big screen, and to say that star Chris Pratt is excited would be very much an understatement. Feels good to be back in action on Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2!!! I can't even tell you how excited I am. Ok I'll try. I'm ecstatic. I'm bursting with joy.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 adds Steve Agee

2 February 2016 1:34 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Steve Agee has been added to the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, according to a recent episode of Doug Loves Movies.

During the February 1st episode of the podcast, host Doug Benson was talking to guest Scoot McNairy (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), who he originally had gotten in contact with thanks to Agee, a mutual friend of theirs. When explaining why Agee wasn’t able to be on the show, Benson said, “… [Steve] just found out because he’s in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, he has to shoot that bullshit instead of being here with us today.”

Before 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy was released, Agee was rumored to be in the cast of the film, but director James Gunn eventually cleared things up and confirmed that he would not appear. Obviously, the two friends will now be working together on the sequel. »
