Neko Case and Kelly Hogan's new video warns: 'These Aren’t The Droids'

11 July 2014 3:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We've already pointed out the many splendor thing about Kelly Hogan and Neko Case's very silly and strong feministing song "These Aren't The Droids." I giggle every time at the "sexbot with only holes" line. But the music video to the comedy track may also be a fun primer for some of you leading up to San Diego Comic-Con, first, for some great cosplay ideas. Secondly: tips on dining table etiquette and what to do with your tasers. Third, it's a reiteration of how people shouldn't treat  girls (geeky or not) like second-rate space citizens. We may get you pregnant by pointing at you. Ellie Kemper also co-stars, so you've got that. "These Aren't The Droids" is a track off of the benefit album "2776," which boasts contributions from other music and comedy acts including Patton Oswalt, Reggie Watts, Aimee Mann, Ed Helms, Will Forte and more. As a matter of fact, »

'Lord of the Rings' Gollum and 'Dawn Of Apes' Caesar Debate If Conan Is Funny

26 June 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Andy Serkis stopped by Conan to help promote 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' last night. In the film Serkis plays Caesar, leader of the local chapter of the Ape uprising. And while the late night segment starts off dealing with the the vocalization issues of playing a genetically enhanced chimpanzee, it quickly derails into a phone conversation between Caesar and Gollum from 'Lord of the Rings.' Skip to 1:50 mark if you want to miss out on Serkis giving Conan and Andy Richter lessons on how to sound like an ape. I'll only judge you a lot. »

Ice-t's Call of Duty Dance & Adam Levine's Maroon 5 Story Lead Our Late Night Roundup (Video)

24 June 2014 12:54 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Here's what you might have missed during last night's late night talk shows:

Ice-t stopped by "Conan" to discuss how he celebrates winning tough levels on online video games like Call of Duty, and it includes unzipping his pants and letting his junk out. "It's called the d--k dance," the rapper-actor explained. "It's liberating." Sidekick Andy Richter chimed in that he'd apply firecrackers to his own celebration, though Ice-t wasn't too keen on that idea.

Meanwhile, on "The Late Show," host David Letterman grilled "The Voice" judge Adam Levine about the famously secretive origin of Levine's band Maroon 5's name. In the first clip, Levine demurs that the reason he and his bandmates haven't publicly revealed the tale is because it's an "uneventful, boring, stupid story that makes me feel bad about myself."

In the next clip, Letterman presses Levine further, finally getting the frontman to reveal that he's »

Dreamworks’ ‘The Penguins Of Madagascar’ Spring Into Action

12 June 2014 11:18 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Madagascar trilogy became one of Dreamworks’ biggest cash cows, despite starring a bunch of animals that weren’t cows. As always in these animated features, there were a select group of supporting characters that completely stole the show. Shrek 2 had Puss ‘N Boots and Despicable Me had those Minions, but for the Madagascar franchise it was the quartet of sinister espionage penguins that captured everybody’s hearts. The guys already had their own TV show, but now it’s time they journeyed to the big screen in a madcap caper of their own, The Penguins Of Madagascar.

From the looks of the trailer, it seems as though the penguins, Skipper, Kowalski, Private and  Rico, are hired by an elite intelligence agency of animals. The penguins worked very well in their smaller roles in the Madagascar films, and in the short episodes of their TV series, but do they »

11 June 2014 9:54 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

DreamWorks Animation has released the first The Penguins of Madagascar trailer for the upcoming spinoff of the animated Madagascar franchise.  Directed by Eric Darnell (Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted) and Simon J. Smith (Bee Movie), the film finds the scene-stealing penguins leading a film of their own as they’re joined by a wolf named Classified (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch), who leads a covert team of protective animals.  Though the pic may seem like an easy way to extend the lucrative series, this trailer is actually quite funny.  The pic appears to be a throwback to the action films of the 80s and 90s, and the titular penguins are a great source of physical comedy. Hit the jump tow watch the first Penguins of Madagascar trailer.  The film also features the voices of John Malkovich, Andy Richter, Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, Ken Jeong, Annet Mahendru, and Peter StormareThe Penguins of Madagascar »

First 'Penguins of Madagascar' Trailer

11 June 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Set for a November 26 release date, DreamWorks has revealed the first The Penguins of Madagascar trailer, giving you a first look at the Madagascar spin-off, featuring the only characters from the Madagascar movies worth laughing at. Question is, will this be a case of "too much of a good thing"c I didn't watch the trailer myself, but apparently Benedict Cumberbatch voices a wolf named Classified who leads a covert protective force of animals that includes the explosives expert Short Fuse (Ken Jeong), intelligence analyst Eva (Annet Mahendru), and Norwegian bear Corporal (Peter Stormare). Also in the voice cast you have John Malkovich, Andy Richter, Tom McGrath, Chris Miller and Christopher Knights. Check out the trailer and a second picture (via Digital Spy) below. yt id="RBCJXKJi0BA" width="640" »

11 June 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The first trailer for The Penguins of Madagascar has been revealed exclusively on Digital Spy.

Benedict Cumberbatch leads the voice cast of the DreamWorks spinoff, playing a suave wolf named Classified who leads a covert protective force of animals.

The force also includes the seal Short Fuse (Ken Jeong), an explosives expert; snow owl Eva (Annet Mahendru), an intelligence analyst; and hulking Norwegian bear Corporal (Peter Stormare), who constantly wants to embrace his four new bird friends.

John Malkovich, Andy Richter, Tom McGrath and Chris Miller are also among the voice cast of the film, which is an off-shoot of the Madagascar film series.

10 June 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Benedict Cumberbatch will lend his voice talents to upcoming animated spinoff movie Penguins of Madagascar.

The Sherlock star will play 'Classified', a debonair wolf who leads a covert protective agency for animals.

The film, which will open in cinemas this winter, is a spinoff from the popular Madagascar series focusing on the penguin characters.

"I don't know what it's like to be a penguin, but I do know what it's like to be a super-duper-smooth classified agent," Cumberbatch said.

The Penguins of Madagascar also star in their own animated TV series, which has been running since 2008.

Its big-screen spinoff will feature John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, Andy Richter, Tom McGrath and Chris Miller in voice roles. »

First Images from The Penguins Of Madagascar

10 June 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The penguins from the hit animated film franchise Madagascar are getting their own spin-off movie called The Penguins of Madagascar. DreamWorks Animation has released three photos from the movie, which give us our first look at the characters. There are no plot details for the film at the moment, but it will include the four main penguin characters — Skipper, Corporal, Kowalski, and Private. I'm sure they involve themselves in some kind of crazy scheme that will get them into trouble.

The movie comes out on November 26th, 2014, and it has a great voice cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch as some kind of secret agent animal, John Malkovich as the villain, Ken Jeong, Andy Richter, and more. Maybe the fox in the image below is Cumberbatch's character.

My kids love these penguins. They are their favorite part of the Madagascar movies. I don't know what kids don't like the mischievous animals, »

Vulture breaks down the secrets of how Catfish: The TV Show is put together, making clear that the catfishes usually get cast first, how much of the show is planned in advance as well as how much Nev and Max know in advance. It doesn’t predict when Max and Nev finally get together, however,

James Wolk talked with GQ and addressed where he thought Bob‘s mind was during last week’s marriage proposal, “I think he really has a love for Joan and for her family. I think he really does care for her. And as you see throughout the show, he’s always thinking about trying to advance himself. So I believe that he feels that having a wife and having a family, and being a picture perfect American man in the 1960s, will help him in his career. And he also thinks it would be »

‘Modern Family’ Star Julie Bowen Sketches Too-Real Photo of Kangaroo Balls on ‘Conan’ (Video)

6 May 2014 9:24 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Modern Family” star Julie Bowen went all the way to Australia, and all her kids got were these lousy kangaroo balls. Bowen and the “Modern Family” cast shot an episode of the hit ABC sitcom Down Under, where the actress came back with fond memories and, very likely, a pair of decorative marsupial testicles. See photo: Seth Rogen Goes Balls Out in Explicit New Selfie When there was some discrepancy about the distinction between the balls themselves and scrotum (“What's the difference?” Bowen whispered), host Conan O'Brien, sidekick Andy Richter and their guest each took turns drawing the parts of the male. »

Sure, the MTV Movie Awards are this Sunday, but it’s not the only game in town: Over on HBO, the competition will be a brand-new episode of Game of Thrones. So how does host Conan O’Brien plan on combating the swords-and-sandals series? With both skin and spoilers, naturally.

“I’d like people to really see a lot of my body for the first time,” O’Brien tells EW of his plans as host. “What’s interesting is that the world has changed so much since when I first got into television; you have to be increasingly fearless. So, »

Andy Richter Wants to Replace Retiring ‘Legendary Talk Show Host’ (Video)

Andy Richter threw his sweater vest — er, hat — into the ring to replace a retiring talk show legend. Just not that legend. Conan O'Brien's sidekick informed his boss on Tuesday's TBS show that he may be leaving to take over for a departing TV mainstay — but not David Letterman. Richter is interested in Barbara Walters’ gig on “The View,” which opens after May 16.

MTV Movie Awards: Conan ditches Andy Richter, teams with Ice Cube instead

7 April 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

This Sunday, Conan O’Brien will host the 2014 MTV Movie Awards — but unlike his regular hosting gig on TBS, he’ll be on stage without his longtime sidekick Andy Richter.

Andy’s not reliable,” O’Brien explains to EW. “I’d love to bring Andy — in fact, I’ve tried to bring Andy to many things. But he’s like the country singer George Jones late in his career: Maybe he’ll show, maybe he won’t.”

Andy pretty much lives in an Rv,” O’Brien adds. “It’s very hard; he doesn’t have any representation. You can tell. »

Is Conan O'Brien really an all-star when it comes to knowing the Lone Star State? Conan kicked off a week of shows in Dallas yesterday by immediately bragging about how much he knows about the state of Texas, prompting wingman Andy Richter to immediately call him out on his cockiness.

"Well, then you should have no problem then passing the just-invented 'Texas Citizenship Test,'" Andy countered. And who better to administer the test than a hometown favorite?

Conan O’Brien, At&T Send Viewers To Web To See Show With 360-Degree Views

1 April 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A slab of beef hurtling through the air on TBS’  “Conan” marks the latest effort to nudge advertisers and late-night programs closer together.

Rather than put a product on the set of Conan O’Brien’s latenight program, At&T is this week sponsoring a unique digital-viewing experience for the show: Viewers who turn to the program’s website can view certain segments with a 360-degree perspective as the show airs, catching sight of not only the action, but the audience and everything else on set at a particular moment. Last night’s 360-degree segment featured Conan letting four and a half pounds of Texas red meat loose via a catapult.

“It definitely has not been done on any late-night program,”said Frank Sgrizzi, exec veep of sales and marketing for the entertainment networks owned by Time Warner’s Turner unit. “It has been used in sporting events.” The camera »
