Great Job, Internet!: Decades after Home Alone, tarantulas still freak Daniel Stern out

27 July 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Maryland-born character actor and voice-over legend Daniel Stern can look back on a career filled with accomplishments. In a very competitive industry, he has worked steadily in TV and film since 1979, not to mention countless radio commercials. His credits include such well-regarded films as City Slickers, Diner, and Breaking Away. The man narrated six seasons of The Wonder Years, for crying out loud. But, to much of the movie-watching world, Stern will always be Marv, the lanky, dimwitted burglar who lets out a scream for the ages when Macaulay Culkin places a tarantula on his face in 1990’s John Hughes-scripted Home Alone. If a video posted to Stern’s official (if underutilized) YouTube channel is any indication, the actor has come to peace with this legacy, if “come to peace” means that he still lets out a blood-curdling shriek at the very sight of a tarantula.

Home Alone's Daniel Stern Recreates Marv's Famous Tarantula Scene

26 July 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Marv must be feeling nostalgic! Home Alone star Daniel Stern, who famously played robber Marv in the classic Christmas movie, took to Facebook to recreate one of the movie's most famous scene: the moment when Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) puts his brother's tarantula on Marv's face. The hilarious scene has Marv screaming in such a high octave that it almost seemed impossible for any person to accomplish, but shrieked he did before throwing it on his partner in crime's face (Harry, played by Joe Pesci). Unfortunately, in Stern's remake we don't have Pesci, but all these years later Stern was able to prove he still has the pipes to scream the same way his character once did. With his wife »

The '80s Movie Anders Holm Would Consider Parodying on Workaholics

30 June 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Season six of Workaholics is officially out on DVD, which means it's time to rewatch the latest episodes of your favorite cubicle-dwellers getting into trouble. We got the chance to chat with Anders Holm, who we also love from The Mindy Project, about the show, and while he couldn't divulge anything about next season (they literally haven't written it yet), he did let us in on his strangest fan experience, his favorite part of season six, and more. Popsugar: Have you had any strange fan experiences? Anders Holm: Yeah. This guy rolled up on me in Chicago and he recognized me and was like, "Yo, I'm a big fan," and we were just walking around the street and then this van pulled up with these prostitutes and they were like, "Any of y'all wanna f*ck?" And I was like, "Yeah, this guy does!" This was just a magical moment, »

'City Slickers': 10 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Hit Comedy

6 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's hard to imagine being nostalgic for a midlife crisis. Nonetheless, it's been 25 years since Billy Crystal conceived of, produced, and starred in the funniest midlife-crisis movie ever. A quarter-century after the release of "City Slickers" (on June 7, 1991), fans remember it fondly for its story of three tenderfoot cowpokes out of their depth, for Jack Palance's wonderfully hard-bitten trail boss, and for generating one of the most memorable moments in Oscar history.

In honor of the film's 25th anniversary, we've rounded up these little-known "City Slickers" facts.

1. Crystal came up with the idea for the movie while watching a TV show about middle-aged men going on life-changing fantasy vacations. He borrowed the plot from John Wayne's "The Cowboys," reimagined it as a comedy, and hired screenwriters Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel to craft it into a screenplay. The two writers were too lazy to visit an actual dude »

Melissa Gilbert Talks Running for Congress in Michigan - with a Little Help from Her Famous Friends

21 March 2016 2:35 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

With donations from famous friends like Jennifer Garner, Alec Baldwin and Michael Douglas, Melissa Gilbert's campaign for Congress in Michigan's 8th district is off to a well-financed start. That said, the 51-year-old actress, who rose to fame for playing Laura Ingalls Wilder in the 1970s hit TV series Little House on the Prairie, is facing a tough battle in the swingy, gerrymandered district that encompasses the roughly 100 miles of farmland between the state capital of Lansing and the upscale suburbs of Detroit. The district hasn't sent a Democrat to the U.S. House since the 1990s. The actress, who »

Paul Reiser on Early Role in ‘Diner’ and Working With Will Smith in ‘Concussion’

18 March 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paul Reiser has a slew of movies coming out this year, including “War on Everyone,” “The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea,” “The Darkness” and “Joshy.” Also upcoming: the second season of Amazon’s “Red Oaks” plus the May 3 release of the “Mad About You” boxed set, with all 164 episodes. The standup comic was first mentioned in Variety on March 5, 1981, when he was cast in Barry Levinson’s “Diner.”

What was “Diner” like?

It was my first job in show business. It was a crazy circumstance. A friend of mine was going in for an audition, and I was waiting for him, when casting director Ellen Chenoweth asked if I had a [headshot], and I said no. I went back the next day with a picture; next thing I know, I was in a movie. It was a great way to start a career — highly regarded director, (and the movie was) so well received. »

Home Alone 1 And 2: 20 Easter Eggs, References & In-Jokes

21 January 2016 4:49 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Home Alone has been a staple of the Christmas schedule for well over two decades (feel old yet?) and despite numerous sequels and imitators, none have come close to recapturing that winning mix of sweetness and nasty violence. What more could you want during the festive period?

Home Alone 2 isn’t quite as beloved and is basically a beat for beat rehash of the original, just with nastier violence, but still, odds are if it plays on TV people will still get sucked into it. There are rumours other sequels were made, but the world made a united pact to forget about them.

The cult of the two movies is still going strong, with Macaulay Culkin and Daniel Stern recently reprising their roles for online videos that quickly went viral. It seems like there’s not much more to be said about the films, but there »
