Sarah Silverman's Tongue-in-Cheek Political Campaign Ad Is Everything You Want It to Be (Exclusive)

Sarah Silverman's Tongue-in-Cheek Political Campaign Ad Is Everything You Want It to Be (Exclusive)
Sarah Silverman has some ideas for how to make America great.

In Thursday’s new episode of her Hulu talk show, I Love You, America, Silverman debuts a tongue-in-cheek political campaign commercial as if she were running for office -- and only Et had the exclusive first look at the hilarious spoof.

What begins as a good-natured ad with Americans both young and old imbuing their vision of an ideal America (“quality education for all,” “livable wages and decent paying jobs,” “defending democracy and free speech”), Silverman has her own ideas on what she’d do to make everyday life just a tad bit better.

“No party buses,” the 47-year-oldhost and comedian says with complete sincerity, before listing off a few more enticing promises: “All the Medieval Times and Renaissance fairs you want in… in Canada.” “Say no to destination weddings.” “Let’s bring an end to private party magicians and their billowy blouses.”

As production continues on Amazon’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens, the studio has released the first picture of Mad Men star Jon Hamm as the Archangel Gabriel. The series is currently filming in the UK for a 2019 premiere date. Hamm will be starring opposite Michael Sheen (Passengers) as the angel Aziraphale and David Tennant (Doctor Who) as the demon Crowley. Check it out below…

“I read Good Omens almost twenty years ago,” Jon Hamm said. “I thought it was one of the funniest, coolest books I’d ever read. It was also, obviously, unfilmable. Two months ago Neil sent me the scripts, and I knew I had to be in it.”

“Gabriel is everything that Aziraphale isn’t: he’s tall, good-looking, charismatic and impeccably dressed,” Gaiman said. “We were fortunate that Jon Hamm was available, given that he is already all of these things without even having to act.

32 Things This Picture of Jon Hamm Reminds Us Of

  • BuzzSugar
Image Source: BBC Studios In somewhat unexpected casting news, Jon Hamm is portraying the Archangel Gabriel. Yes, the biblical messenger. The role is for the upcoming Good Omens adaptation, which will be a six-part miniseries based on Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's novel about the end of days. The series - also starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant - will air on Amazon Prime Video in 2019. Although that's ridiculously far away, we've been blessed with the first glimpse of Hamm in the new show, and it's really . . . something. In a new press release, BBC Studios shared the photo of Hamm dressed as Gabriel, and it's safe to say that nothing will ever be the same for us. "Gabriel is the leader of the angels, and the most stylish and impeccably dressed of all of them," costume designer Claire Anderson said. "We chose an immaculately tailored suit that Jon Hamm wears to perfection,

Exclusive: Dan Stevens on working with director Gareth Evans on Apostle

Ahead of this week’s release of The Man Who Invented Christmas, Flickering Myth’s Thomas Harris caught up with actor Dan Stevens to discuss his role as Charles Dickens in the new film. However, talk also shifted to Stevens’ next project, Apostle, which sees him teaming up with “the Welsh Tarantino” Gareth Evans.

“I can tell you that there is a bit of action in there,” replied Stevens when asked if the film will see him stretching his action chops. “It’s not as relentlessly action packed as The Raid 3 might be. A lot of people keep asking me, ‘is it The Raid 3 in disguise?’ I’d love it to be. It’s not. It’s really, I hope, a pretty special work. It was a really unique experience, very, very tough shoot, but Gareth Evans is a wonderful, wonderful filmmaker – the Welsh Tarantino – he’s quite something.

The Last Word on ‘Passengers’

I’m David Baruffi, and as always, I have the Last Word…., on ‘Passengers‘.

I can see why there’s been a lot of negative criticism against Morten Tyldem‘s latest, ‘Passengers‘, but…- there’s something here. There really is, and I’m not sure people are necessarily reading the film right. Every negative, and most positive reviews I see, seem to be focusing in on the romance aspect of the movie, as though this is some, sprawling romantic epic, colliding with an incredible-looking stylized sci-fi film. It looks like ‘2001: A Space Odyssey‘ but it feels like ‘Titanic‘, or tries to kinda thing. As somebody who’s never thought ‘Titanic‘ was any good to begin with, I didn’t see the romance like that at all.

Let’s start at the beginning. In the future, a company has started colonizing a new planet and now there’s some

Win Richard Gere Starrer ‘Norman’ On DVD

To celebrate the release of Norman, a new film which stars Richard Gere, Steve Buscemi and Michael Sheen, we have three copies of the film to give away on DVD.

Norman Oppenheimer (Richard Gere) lives a lonely life in the margins of New York City power and money, and strives to be everyone’s friend. His incessant networking leads him nowhere until he ends up befriending a young but charismatic politician, Micha Eshel (Lior Ashkenazi), at a low point in his life. Three years later, the politician becomes the Prime Minister of Israel. Norman uses Eshel’s name to leverage his biggest deal ever: a series of quid pro quo transactions linking the Prime Minister to Norman’s nephew (Michael Sheen), a rabbi (Steve Buscemi), a mogul (Harris Yulin), his assistant (Dan Stevens) and a treasury official from the Ivory Coast. Norman’s plans soon go awry, creating the potential

Jon Hamm to play archangel Gabriel in Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens

As production continues on Neil Gaiman’s TV adaptation of his and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens, it has been announced that Jon Hamm (Mad Men, Baby Driver) has joined the cast of the six-part series as the archangel Gabriel – a role that is being expanded from that of the novel.

“Once we had finished writing Good Omens, back in the dawn of prehistory, Terry Pratchett and I started plotting a sequel,” said Gaiman. “There would have been a lot of angels in the sequel. When Good Omens was first published and was snapped up for the first time by Hollywood, Terry and I took joy in introducing our angels into the plot of a movie that was never made. So when, almost thirty years later, I started writing Good Omens for TV, one thing I knew was that our angels would have to be in there.”

Home Again review

Reese Witherspoon sort-of-returns to the rom-com. Here's our review of Home Again...

Every time a new Nancy Meyers movie comes around, there’s generally a one-in-ten attach rate of thinkpieces that note that nobody makes films like she does. The elevated life that her characters live in, with barely a money worry amidst their numerous issues with other people, has made for some generally quite gentle, but often very enjoyable rom-coms. Ones I quite like.

What she doesn’t get credit for is how they’re rom-coms for grown-ups too, with characters who have actually made it past 40 years of age without succumbing to a strange Hollywood-esque belated Logan’s Run effect. Problems may not always be the ones us paupers face, but at least it's human beings of some seniority battling them.

With Home Again, Meyers this time is producing, whilst her daughter – Hallie Meyers-Shyer – is writing and directing this time around,

Home Again movie review: imitation of life

MaryAnn’s quick take… Precious, fatuous, Nancy Meyers–lite rom-com about a privileged rich white lady with no real problems who can’t help but mom her much-younger new boyfriend. Barf. I’m “biast” (pro): love Reese Witherspoon

I’m “biast” (con): not usually a fan of romantic comedies

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Alice Kinney spends the morning of her 40th birthday crying in the bathroom. Of course she does! That’s what women do… and Alice (Reese Witherspoon: Sing, Hot Pursuit) has so much to be sad about. She lives in a big beautiful house in sunny Los Angeles, which once belonged to her now-deceased film-director father, who was super-genius and enormously popular and won Oscars and everything. She doesn’t have to work — see: wealthy dead dad — but she’s embarking on the latest in her long line of rich-white-girl

5 reasons to see Brad's Status

5 reasons to see Brad's Status5 reasons to see Brad's StatusAdriana Floridia9/26/2017 2:49:00 Pm

Ben Stiller's new film, Brad's Status, sees the actor in a role that has grown to be his forte.

While Stiller is primarily known for his work in comedies, he's also ventured into the indie film world, and often plays a man having a mid-life crisis. No crisis has been quite as intense as the one we get from him in Brad's Status, the new film from Mike White that gets us deep inside of his protagonist's head. Stiller plays a father who is touring universities with his college-bound son in Boston, all the while realizing that his friends are more successful than him, and that his son likely will be too.

Brad's Status played at Tiff earlier this month, and it was one of our favourite films of the festival. Here are 5 reasons why
