Did America just lose its first cyberwar?
Sony announced Wednesday that The Interview will not be released after a hack leaked embarrassing executive emails, full-length movies and threatened Americans in theaters with 9/11-like attacks if they went to see it.
The Interview stars Seth Rogen and James Franco, and in the comedy, North Korea's Kim Jong-Un is assassinated. But the actors need not worry as their famous friends are standing up for them and their right to creative expression.
News: Here is Sony's statement about canceling 'The Interview'
I think it is disgraceful that these theaters are not showing The Interview. Will they pull any movie that gets an anonymous threat now?

Chelsea Peretti has some advice for aspiring stand-up comedians: Stage time, stage time, stage time, stage time -- oh, and stage time. And yes, she realizes how irritating repeating "stage time" is. Peretti currently stars as Gina on Fox's Brooklyn Nine-Nine and just released a stand-up special on Netflix titled Chelsea Peretti: One of the Greats, but, just like any of the greats, Peretti had to get her start somewhere -- and that start was on a stage where she made poorly received jokes about the always-popular subject of crop dusting. Along the way, Peretti's looked to people like Amy Poehler, »

"Joan Rivers was not done," said Silverman, speaking of her longtime friend and comedic contemporary. "At 81, she lived a life that could jam-pack ten lifetimes. She wasn't the average person.

Many were surprised to see Steve Carell as the disturbed, humorless millionaire John du Pont in “Foxcatcher,” or Melissa McCarthy as a struggling single mother in “St. Vincent,” but next year’s Sundance slate will bring us even more comedic actors dipping into the serious side of their acting abilities. The 2015 indie film sphere will see actor-musician Jack Black star in “The D Train” as Dan, a man who lacks self-confidence and decides to befriend a popular guy from high school (James Marsden) to boost his reputation before their 20th reunion. When a night out with Mr. Popular goes sour, Dan’s fear over his image takes a back seat to something more malevolent. Comedic actor Jarrad Paul (“Liar Liar,” “40 Days and 40 Nights”) serves as co-director on the drama, teaming up with “Yes Man” writer Andrew Mogel, with whom he also wrote the screenplay. Two-time Emmy winner Sarah Silverman is »

With some help from Sarah Silverman, Hannah Hart has put a twist on her My Drunk Kitchen series. She invited the comedienne onto her program for a special episode that replaces Hart's typical binge drinking with a few hits of weed. In the episode, Hart and Silverman make vegetarian pot pie, which tips viewers off about the smoky twist from the start. Silverman explains that she doesn't enjoy the taste of alcohol, so she instead produces a joint and sets off the first ever episode of what could be called My High Kitchen. Ultimately, the video resembles a typical My Drunk Kitchen episode, except Hart snacks on more of the ingredients and focuses a little more clearly on the task at hand. "Oh my god," she exclaims upon tasting the pot pie, "this is like real food!" Hart hopes the video generates discussion among her fans." Obviously this video may Spark some debate. »

See if you can figure out what these 10 performers have in common: Judd Apatow, Will Arnett, Wayne Brady, Drew Carey, Jim Gaffigan, Billy Gardell, Sean Hayes, Thomas Lennon, John Mayer, and Kunal Nayyar.
Well, for one thing, they were all recently announced as guest hosts on CBS' "The Late Late Show" for the three-month interval between the end of Craig Ferguson's tenure (on Dec. 19) and the beginning of James Corden's.
And, for another thing, they're all guys.
There have been a lot of complaints, especially in the last year, that late-night TV is a sausage fest, but it's become especially apparent once again in the last few days. Really, CBS couldn't find one funny woman to sit at the "Late Late Show" desk, even for just a week?

The Writers Guild of America announced the TV nominees for the 2015 WGA Awards on Thursday (December 4) morning and several new shows broke into the fields in a big way. And, of course, there were a number of big WGA Award nomination head-scratchers. Specifically, where the heck was FX's "Fargo"? The answer is below. Making perhaps the biggest splash was "Transparent," which earned three nominations and, since "Orange Is The New Black" earned two nods and "House of Cards" pick up one, that meant that Amazon Prime and Netflix are, at least for one award-giving organization, on equal footing as creators of original programming. The Jill Soloway-created "Transparent" is nominated for New Series, where it will go against "The Affair," "The Knick," "Silicon Valley" and "True Detective." "Transparent" and "Silicon Valley" are also up for Comedy Series, going against "Louie," "Veep" and "Orange Is The New Black." Lest you panic »
