Ed Helms has a Unique Talent for Spinning Things on Jimmy Kimmel Live

16 May 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I feel like Ed Helms has had three careers as an actor.   First there’s “Daily Show Ed Helms” which people always seem to forget.   Helms was one of the funnier correspondents when John Stewart hosted the Daily Show but few remember him because of his next move:  The Office.   I remember absolutely hating Helms when his character first appeared.  The whole “bro” thing really pissed me off but eventually he became a little more sensitive, endearing, and pretty darned funny once he started getting along with Dwight Schrute. And now you’ve got “Movie Ed Helms.”  This the Ed Helms we’ll

13 May 2017 10:58 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Weird Al Yankovic has composed the theme song for the upcoming DreamWorks animated superhero adventure Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. The movie, based off of Dav Pilkey's best selling children's book series, isn't set to hit theaters until June 2nd but today DreamWorks has shared "Weird Al" Yankovic's perfect theme song. Yankovic proves that he was born to sing a song about a superhero that only wears underwear and a cape.

"Captain Underpants Theme Song" basically sets up the movie, mentioning key details including that the students only need to snap their fingers to hypnotize their principle turning him into his alter ego, Captain Underpants and his call of "Tra La La." Yankovic calls him the "waistband warrior" and then sings that it's "wedgie power time," while also calling him "the freaky bald dude in his underwear." The two and half minute song is catchy and perfect for »

12 May 2017 7:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Even in such dark times in America’s history, Stephen Colbert has found cause to celebrate. President Donald Trump, who has expressed admiration for North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, is not too happy with the “Late Show” host, and Colbert couldn’t be happier about it.

On his show last night, Colbert responded to a recent Time interview in which Trump called Colbert a “no-talent guy” who says “nothing funny.” Colbert looked into the camera, and gleefully clapped his hands together like a little kid. It’s the kind of gesture that says: “Now, this is going to be fun.”

“Mr. Trump, there is a lot you don’t understand,” said Colbert. “But I never thought one of those things would be show business. Don’t you know, I’ve been trying for a »

Donald Trump Calls Stephen Colbert a ‘No-Talent Guy’ Who Says ‘Nothing Funny’

11 May 2017 3:14 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Donald Trump, current White House resident and frequent television watcher, is no fan of Stephen Colbert. The “Late Show” host ruffled feathers last week when he referred to 45’s mouth as Vladimir Putin’s “cock holster”; since Trump obviously has nothing more valuable to do with his time, he responded during a new interview with Time.

“You see a no-talent guy like Colbert. There’s nothing funny about what he says,” he said. “And what he says is filthy. And you have kids watching.” Trump, whose office is usually thought of as one that children are meant to look up to, has been recorded on tape boasting about “grabbing [women] by the pussy.”

Stephen Colbert’s ‘Late Show’ Bloopers Are the Funniest Recurring Segment on TV

11 May 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There’s a recurring segment on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” that’s just as good as anything else on TV.

It’s not the Big Furry Hat proclamations, stacked with one-liners about bizarre human behavior and dumb phrases people insist on using. It’s not Midnight Confessions, where Stephen Colbert “admits” to activities and thoughts that aren’t actually sins. And it’s not his nightly monologue, which, misguided phrasing aside, has angled closer and closer to the tightly constructed jabs of Colbert’s Comedy Central days.

All of those are solid, but the best “The Late Show” segment doesn’t have a name and it doesn’t happen on a regular basis.

It happens whenever Colbert stumbles over a joke.

10 May 2017 10:32 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Stephen Colbert managed to make event television out of late-night on Tuesday. The Late Show host's much-hyped reunion with his former Daily Show co-stars notched a 19-month high in early local ratings.

The CBS late-night show — on which Colbert was joined Tuesday by fellow Daily Show alums Jon Stewart, Samantha Bee, John Oliver, Ed Helms and Rob Corddry — pulled a 3.1 overnight rating among households. That's up 15 percent from last Tuesday — and a strong 41 percent from the same night a year ago. Ahead of total viewer tallies, it is pacing towards the most-watched regular telecast since »

Dear Hollywood: 9 Top Women Cinematographers Who Are Ready to Direct

10 May 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Here’s how studios say they see it: Sure, we really want to hire women directors. But there’s almost no studio movie that isn’t big budget, and we can’t find women who have the experience necessary to handle the really big movies. (Never mind Colin Trevorrow. Or Marc Webb. Or Gareth Edwards. Or Jon Watts.)

Of course, that logic is a vicious cycle at best, but here’s a chance to break it. Director Reed Morano’s dazzling execution of the first three episodes of Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” suggests another excellent source for future women directors: top cinematographers.
