In “True Detective,” HBO produced not only the most buzzed-about and dissected show of early 2014, but also the most parodied program in quite some time. Also read: ‘True Detective’ Season Finale: Darkness, Yeah-uh Less than a week after Joel McHale and Jim Rash spoofed the grim, southern neo-noir, Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Rogen took their shot at aping the everyman Marty (Woody Harrelson) and the darkly philosophical Rust (Matthew McConaughey). The effect was as if Judd Apatow took some time off from “Girls” to hop on over and lighten up another HBO hit. The conceit was that this was a special sneak. »

The True Detective finale airs this weekend and fans everywhere are on pins and needles waiting to see where creator Nic Pizzolatto and director Cary Joji Fukunaga will take us in the last hour. After the debut episode, the show quickly reached critical mass. A True Detective parody here, a theory there, the Season Two meme […]

Everyone seems to be talking about True Detective, but what we don't seem to be talking about is how we can't always understand the characters, you know, talking. Joel McHale tackled this issue in a parody of the HBO hit for The Soup, and with McHale in Matthew McConaughey's role and Community costar Jim Rash as Woody Harrelson's role, the two spout nonsense as they re-create memorable True Detective scenes. It's so right on, especially if you, like me, find yourself continually turning up the volume when the show comes on. »

Full disclosure: I am apparently the only person left on Earth who has not watched HBO's "True Detective." And yet apparently Rust and Marty (Woody Harrelson and Matthew "I Am My Own Hero" McConaughey) are sometimes extremely difficult to understand, what with their Deep South drawls and such. For those viewers who are now nodding their heads in painful acknowledgement, we now have the "True Detective" parody to beat all "True Detective" parodies (probably even this one), courtesy of "The Soup's" Joel McHale and his mumbly partner-in-crime Jim Rash.

Forget solving the mystery of the Yellow King.
In a spoof video titled “Can Anyone Understand ‘True Detective?’” that aired during Wednesday’s episode of “The Soup,” Joel McHale and his “Community” costar Jim Rash fill in for for the HBO series’ stars with epic, indecipherable banter.
But comprehension issues haven’t stopped audiences from tuning in. Ratings-wise, the show is the premium cable channel’s most popular current series … of course, the new season of “Game of Thrones” does bow April 6.
“The Soup” airs every Wednesday on E! at 10 p.m.

A social experiment goes awry on Thursday's new episode of NBC's “Community.” Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) brings two designers to Greendale to beta test their new social networking application. But, what starts as a fun social interaction of ranking classmates turns into an all-out class war as Greendale students compete for the highest score. “There is some form of artificial system that's imposed on the school,” Joel McHale, who plays Jeff, told TheWrap when we were on-set for the episode's taping, “and people have to deal with it in different ways and make themselves distinct from the different groups. And it's. »

True Detective has many mysteries: Who is the Yellow King? Who really killed Dora Lange? And most important, what are these people saying? Not just decoding their philosophical musing, but in the plainest, most literal sense: What are they saying? Last night's episode of The Soup tackled this last question with the help of Joel McHale's Community co-star Jim Rash and some truly indecipherable drawled nonsense. "My mama said, 'Dogface to the banana patch,'" says McHale-as-Rust. Truer words were never spoken. »

On Wednesday's (March 5) episode of the E! Network clip show, host Joel McHale and visiting "Community" co-star Jim Rash took on Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson's work, respectively, on the hit murder mystery. Only, this time around, there's not a soul in Louisiana who can understand them.
Check out the hilarious spoof above.
"The Soup" airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. Et/Pt on E! »

Community delivers an episode no other sitcom could do as brilliantly. Here's Mark's take on Bondage And Beta-Male Sexuality...
This review contains spoilers.
5.7 Bondage And Beta-Male Sexuality
“She's everything I love about America. Bold. Opinionated. Just past her peak. Starting to realise she has to settle for less.”
Back in the second season, Community hit a high point with Mixology Certification, in which Troy's 21st birthday celebrations turned surprisingly melancholy. Coming back from a Sochi-mandated hiatus, Bondage And Beta Male Sexuality feels like the first episode since that one to find the characters in that same sort of mood - close to closing time at some quiet venue, turning their thoughts to more existential matters.
After a halting attempt at a British high-five (on the lips) a few episodes ago, Professor Duncan decides to make a move on his protegé in rubbish psychiatry, Britta Perry. »
If it had somehow escaped your notice – in which case, come on out from under that rock – the Oscars are almost upon us again.
Plenty of this year's nominees aren't exactly what you could call unpredictable. There's Meryl, and Leo, and Jennifer, and no major upsets are expected on the night.
But what about the less usual suspects? Digital Spy takes a look back at eight Oscar-winners you may have forgotten about...
The Twelfth Doctor himself took home a statuette from the Academy in 1995, for writing and directing short film Franz Kafka's It's A Wonderful Life. Not to be confused with Frank Capra's actual It's A Wonderful Life, the absurdist short follows Kafka (played by Richard E Grant) in the throes of writer's block while attempting to write his masterpiece The Metamorphosis, and it tied for Best Live Action Short Film with Peggy Rajski's Trevor.
When you're on a show like Community, you tend to know exactly who your fans are. So when Danny Pudi, Gillian Jacobs, and Jim Rash were on @midnight last night, they were unsurprisingly great at a round based on Community's online fan community — to the point that Pudi basically predicted what all the fan drawings were going to be. Watch the clip below. Hope you like super-romantic Abed slash fiction. »

From now until the Friday before the Oscars we'll be running daily pieces about why a film does or does not deserve Best Picture. Today, Eric explains why Nebraska deserves the big win during the Academy Awards. Alexander Payne has had some success at the Academy Awards. His first nomination came in 2000 when he and Jim Taylor found their screenplay for Election competing in the Best Adapted Screenplay category, and while he found himself walking away empty handed that night, he has earned trophies in his two trips since, sharing Best Adapted Screenplay prizes with Taylor and Jim Rash & Nat Faxon, respectively, for Sideways and The Descendants. Well-deserved as both of those prizes were, however, it.s also hard not to ignore the categories in which those same films list: namely Best Picture. Despite being top-tier contenders that collected numerous awards on the road to the Oscars . including Best Motion »
Fans already anticipating "True Detective" Season 2 have taken over Twitter. With stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson signed for only one season, "True Detective" will need a new pairing in its next outing.

OddLot Entertainment has closed a $50 million revolving credit facility with J.P. Morgan and Comerica as co-lead arrangers -- a deal that may be increased to up to $150 million. The move is designed to boost the physical production capacity of the Los Angeles-based company behind such recent films as Ender's Game and Jim Rash and Nat Faxon's The Way, Way Back, which became the biggest sale of Sundance 2013.

If you want to get to know someone’s sense of humor quickly, ask them to name the sexiest song in their collection. In honor of Valentine’s Day, that’s what we did with the actors who’ve recently popped by EW to take our Pop Culture Personalty Test. Watch the video below to see who admits to having a “really, really good” playlist to set the mood, who finds that Inxs’ “Need You Tonight” closes the deal, and who thinks Ginuwine’s “Pony” is “hot stuff.”

The list of cast members attending this year’s PaleyFest is here, and it’s full of fan favorites. Mindy Kaling and Chris Messina will be there to (hopefully) talk about where their on-screen romance is going, Josh Holloway and Henry Ian Cusick will be among the actors appearing on the 10-year Lost reunion panel, and ABC Family fans should be happy to hear that three out of four Pretty Little Liars will be spilling secrets at their show’s panel.
Tickets for the individual panels can be purchased here, but take a look at the entire list of who’s speaking below first:

Pointing to the successes of “Frozen” and “The Nut Job,” Wrekin Hill Entertainment has acquired all North American rights to Christian De Vita’s 3D animated feature “Yellowbird” from TeamTO and Haut & Court.
The seven-figure deal was closed at the European Film Market in Berlin.
The film, currently in production, is written by Antoine Barraud and Guilhem Lesaffre with Cory Edwards and based on artwork by Benjamin Renner (“Ernest and Celestine”). Seth Green, Dakota Fanning, Danny Glover, Elliott Gould, Jim Rash and Christine Baranski are among the voice talent.
Wrekin Hill will release the film in theaters in the fall. The story centers on a teenage bird so scared to venture out into the world that he nearly misses the fun of discovering who he really is.
“With films like ‘Frozen’ and ‘The Nut Job’ showing strength at the U.S. box office, it is clear that there is a »
