Community Season 5: A Hilarious, Bizarre & Brilliant Return to Form [Review - ★★★½]

21 April 2014 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

After a disastrous and messy fourth season that saw original showrunner and creator Dan Harmon fired and ultimately replaced by what seemed like nobody: Community felt ultimately doomed to fail for the last time due to NBC's mismanagement of the series. But then something strange happened. Harmon was re-hired and given the reigns once more to try and pick up the pieces. The results are nothing short of astounding. Community is an American television sitcom created by Dan Harmon that premiered on September 17, 2009 on NBC. The series follows a group of students at a community college in the fictional locale of Greendale, Colorado. Community stars Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Danny Pudi, Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown, Jim Rash and Ken Jeong. The series was created by Dan Harmon and airs »

Fox is giving up on its Saturday night animated line-up, Broadcasting & Cable reported. While the younger viewers the animated block aimed for never showed, an additional issue was that Fox affiliates were frustrated by the number of complaint calls the crude humor inspired. The studio behind the Animation Domination High Def block will continue to create programming but will focus on the web.

Bret Harrison has joined the cast of the ABC drama series Astronaut Wives Club, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He’ll play the “hotshot young gun” husband of a character played by Odette Annable, who previously starred in Breaking In with Harrison.

'Scandal': Highlights from the Shonda Rhimes, Jim Rash Twitter chat

17 April 2014 5:07 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It’s only a few hours before the season finale of Scandal,  and ahead of this much-anticipated episode, creator Shonda Rhimes and Sundance Channel’s Writers’ Room host Jim Rash hosted a Twitter chat, during which she answered questions about what goes into creating the addictive drama.

Rash asked if Rhimes and the writers ever found themselves backed up against a wall by a previous story decision. And from her responses, it sounds like the creative team does not look before they leap. Among storylines that had no real direction were Quinn’s identity at the end of season 1, what »

TV Review: SundanceTV's Charming Season Premiere of 'The Writers' Room' Shares Secrets of 'Scandal'

17 April 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Jim Rash can do no wrong. From his impeccable five-year performance as the Dean on "Community" to his Angelina Jolie-inspired, perfectly-timed pose at the 2013 Academy Awards, to an astute parody of "True Detective" with buddy Joel McHale, the Oscar-winning screenwriter is charming to the nth degree on and off camera. As the host of SundanceTV's "The Writers' Room," he effortlessly pushes for insights from some of the most in-demand writers out there -- and often gets them. While the mood is light during the Q&A session, the entertainment value is high thanks to well-chosen guests, intuitive features, and, of course, its amiable host.  The second season kicks off Friday, April 18th with the creator, lead actress, and writers of ABC's hit late night soap opera, "Scandal" (a well-timed episode considering the show's season finale airs Thursday night). Creator Shonda Rhimes, Kerry Washington, and writers Mark Wilding, Jenna Bans, »

Psst...psst...yeah, you. Guess what? We've got a special treat for you. Community's rejuvenated and hilarious fifth season, which saw the return of creator Dan Harmon, comes to an end on Thursday night with a finale that may just be the series' best yet. Seriously, we've seen "Basic Sandwich" and can safely say fans will not be disappointed. In case you don't believe us (which, by the way, how dare you?!) we've got an exclusive sneak peek at the NBC sitcom's finale's funniest scene, in our humble opinion, that features Jeff (Joel McHale), Abed (Danny Pudi), Britta (Gillian Jacobs), Annie (Alison Brie) and Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) getting in the most hilariously quiet battle of »

The Write Stuff: Q&A with 'Community's Jim Rash

16 April 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jim Rash is currently having a very good year. The Oscar-winning screenwriter (remember his Angelina Jolie-leg impersonation onstage?) is following up his co-directorial debut The Way, Way Back with a new project named The Heart, set to star Kristin Wiig; Community, NBC's fan-favorite metasitcom featuring Rash as Greendale’s socially floundering Dean Craig Pelton, has experienced a critical resurgence thanks to the return of original showrunner Dan Harmon; and his SundanceTV show The Writer's Room, in which Rash talks to the writing staffs responsible for some of TV's best running shows, »

Review: 'Community' - 'Basic Story'

10 April 2014 6:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Community" coming up just as soon as you come to me for atheistic rants and photos of my meals... Perhaps appropriately for an episode where Jeff keeps trying to make Abed stop looking for a plotline, there isn't much to "Basic Story." It's less an episode than it is an extended prologue to whatever we're going to get in next week's finale, "Basic Sandwich." There's some meta commentary about how this show, like any show, relies on conflict and some form of chaos to generate interesting stories, and there are a few in-jokes — Dean Pelton's idea to create a fake particle accelerator was, as Dan Harmon told me a few weeks ago, part of the original outline for the season premiere — but for much of its running time, "Basic Story" is, like Abed, just waiting for something to happen. As such, I almost feel as »

Sam Rockwell & Allison Janney Team-Up Again With Rash & Faxon For ‘The Heart’

4 April 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If you’ve not yet managed to watch Jim Rash and Nat Faxon’s tremendous The Way Way Back, then I can’t recommend it enough. It is, at heart, a quintessential ‘coming of age‘ drama but so much more with performances from all the cast that are above and beyond your standard affair.

Two of the stand-out performances in that one were Sam Rockwell, who can’t do anything wrong in my opinion, and the wonderful Allison Janney, so it’s great news to hear they’re planning to team up again with Rash and Faxon, who also wrote another favourite of mine: The Descendants.

This new project is The Heart, an action-comedy that Rockwell and Janney are currently in talks to join the confirmed Kristen Wiig. The only part of the plot that we know – so far – is that funny-lady Wiig will play a cash-strapped soul who agrees »

Sam Rockwell And Allison Janney Find The Heart

3 April 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Oscars on their mantlepieces for The Descendants, and summer hit The Way Way Back under their belts, writer-director duo Nat Faxon and Jim Rash have established themselves as two of Hollywood’s most exciting new filmmakers. In The Descendants, they struck an extraordinary balance between humor and heartbreak, and The Way Way Back confirmed that Faxon and Rash were as capable behind the camera as they were with pen and paper. Now, it appears that for their next project, action-comedy The Heart, the duo are aiming for a mini-Way Way Back reunion, with news that Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney have both joined the cast.

In the film, written and directed by Faxon and Rash, Kristen Wiig stars as a cash-strapped woman who agrees to begin trafficking black market organs with a mysterious stranger. Rockwell will play said stranger, which doesn’t come as too much of a surprise, »

Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney Back with Rash & Faxon in 'The Heart'

3 April 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following an Oscar win for writing The Descendants, and a fantastic directing debut with The Way Way Back, the duo of Jim Rash and Nat Faxon are reteaming with two of the supporting stars of the coming-of-age comedy. The Wrap has learned that Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney have joined The Heart, an action comedy starring "Saturday Night Live" veteran and Bridesmaids writer and lead Kristen Wiig.

Janney is in early talks for her role, which would have the actress playing Wiig's intimidating boss who just happens to have two boyfriends. "The West Wing" star can currently be seen in Bad Words, which is also great evidence of her ability to play this new role fantastically, »

Jesse Plemons and Juno Temple in Talks to Join Black Mass; Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney May Reteam for The Heart

2 April 2014 2:31 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We’ve got a couple of casting stories to attend to this afternoon.  First up, THR reports that Jesse Plemons (The Master) and Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises) are in talks to join Johnny Depp in the Whitey Bulger drama Black Mass.  This tidbit appears to confirm that, while he indeed met for the project, Plemons is likely out of contention for a role in Star Wars: Episode VII.  The J.J. Abrams-directed sequel will be filming at the same time as Black Mass and Plemons would be unable to do both movies, so the fact that he’s actively seeking other work in the near future signals that we probably won’t be seeing Landry in a galaxy far, far away. Depp is set to play Bulger in Black Mass, with Joel Edgerton and Guy Pearce onboard to co-star and Dakota Johnson in talks for a role.  Though »
