Is Once's Seer Really Jafar? Should Rocky Horror Have Aired Live? Are Cisco and Winn Too Similar? And More Qs

21 October 2016 11:04 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Once Upon a Time, Lucifer, Jane the Virgin and Lethal Weapon!

1 | Which of SNL’s branded content sketches was worse: Burger King or Honda?

2 | Is Once Upon a Time‘s Snow White using, like, giant sidewalk chalk on the blackboard here? (Perhaps a blind Mary Ingalls is among her students?) Also, the staff-wielding young seer that has visited Emma and now Jasmine is totally Jafar in disguise, akin to his big-screen masquerade as the old man, »

Exclusive: Sarah Baker on playing Trinity in Better Things

20 October 2016 6:18 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

You can thank Pamela Adlon, executive producer and star of Better Things, and producer and star on Louie, for finding actor Sarah Baker to work on her respective FX shows. Baker came on our radar back in 2014 cast as Vanessa, the witty full-figured cocktail waitress who delivered an epic “tell it like it is” speech on Louis C.K.’s Louie. She won the role by auditioning in front of Adlon while C.K. was away in New York. She never forgot how good Sarah is in a scene.   Now she is back in C.K. and Adlon’s orbit as a guest-star on this week’s episode...read more »

Christopher Guest on 'Mascots' and Why His Comedies Are Completely Different

14 October 2016 9:26 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

As Spinal Tap lead guitarist Nigel Tufnel – wearer of anatomically correct T-shirts, owner of amplifiers that go to "11," writer of delicate compositions like "Lick My Love Pump" – Christopher Guest, along with director Rob Reiner and his co-writers/bandmates Michael McKean and Harry Shearer, turned 1984's This Is Spinal Tap into a devastatingly funny dissection of rock pomposity. To say that the film's mix of off-the-cuff jokes and straight-faced parody has influenced several generations of filmmakers and funny people would be a vast understatement – everyone from Ricky Gervais to Fred Armisen »

Exclusive Video Interview: Susan Yeagley And Parker Posey Talk Mascots

11 October 2016 6:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been 10 years since we’ve been treated to a deliciously quirky, fully improvised mockumentary from director Christopher Guest, but now he’s back to deliver to us the hilarious Netflix movie, Mascots.

Guest once again gathers his veteran crew of improvisers – Jane Lynch, Parker Posey, Fred Willard, Ed Begley Jr., John Michael Higgins, Bob Balaban and Jennifer Coolidge – and pairs then with a slew of newcomers like Chris O’Dowd, Susan Yeagley, Zach Woods, Sarah Baker and Tom Bennett. The results are, as you’d expect, nothing short of amazing.

Much in the same vein as Best in Show, Mascots centers on an international mascot competition and all the wacky people involved, from organizers to the judges to the contestants. In his review of the film back at Tiff, our very own Darren Ruecker concluded the following about it:

Mascots is no failure, thanks to a robust handful of quintessential Guest gags. »

Mascots Review [Tiff 2016]

12 September 2016 9:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In Netflix, Mascots has found a perfect home. One that permits any viewer to pop on Christopher Guest’s latest mockumentary from a comfortable position – or even better – while more productive activities are accomplished. Guest’s Best In Show rehash with costumed mascots meanders more than it entertains, given how laughs don’t incapacitate like we’re used to from such a legend of dry comedy. This is the kind of comedy you can float in-and-out of – like a performance-heavy fever dream – as disillusioned mascot personalities ramble on and on about their lofty, off-color dreams. You will laugh, but the world of Mascots isn’t as quirkily inviting as A Mighty Wind, for example. It’s still funny-ish, yet far from the hopeful home run.

Guest’s latest stars a bevy of big-time mascots who all have dreams of winning their first Fluffy, the official award of the (maybe) soon-to-be televised World Mascot Championship. »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Mascots’

10 September 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In Christopher Guest’s “Mascots,” there’s a funny scene in which the judges for the 8th World Mascot Association Championship in Anaheim, Calif. — a competition known as “the Fluffies” — call one of the 20 competing finalists onto the carpet for an alleged sin of political incorrectness. The judges include the ever-beaming Michael Hitchcock as a persnickety control freak in a sweater vest, Ed Begley Jr. as an old curmudgeon with a “micro-penis,” Don Lake as a geek version of J.K. Simmons, and Jane Lynch, with her never-less-than-hilarious cutthroat hauteur, as the author of a book called “A Moose-ing Grace: A Mascot’s Journey to God.”

The finalist who’s in hot water is Cindy Babineaux (Parker Posey), a broken-down belle in a frowzy dye job whose mascot character is Alvin the Armadillo, from a college in the heart of Mississippi. The trouble is that the team was once named the Leaping Squaws. »

The Mascots Trailer Is Here And The World Is A Little Happier

3 September 2016 10:23 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The world of film is obviously as broad and far-reaching as it could be, and no matter how much we might feel that certain films are so good that everyone should like them, people have differing tastes. I might think My Dinner with Andre is easily one of the best films there is, despite the fact that most people can’t finish it. Virtually every list of the best films ever includes Casablanca somewhere close to the top, but I agree with the cast and crew in thinking that it isn’t really anything special. Such is life.

But, if you don’t have Waiting for Guffman, or Best in Show, or both, on your list of favorite movies, I just don’t get you.

Christopher Guest‘s mockumentary films (which also include A Mighty Wind, and For Your Consideration – which are both good, but not nearly as solid) all include familiar faces, »

‘Mascots’: Watch the First Trailer for Christopher Guest’s New Mockumentary [Video]

1 September 2016 3:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Christopher Guest’s sense of the comically absurd returns in full force in the first trailer for Netflix’s “Mascots.”

The trailer begins with Ollie the Octopus and Tammy the Turtle performing and includes such off-the-wall assertions as “Benny the Banana Slug has a failed drug test” and Ed Begley Jr.’s character declaring, “Danny the Donkey, my mascot, was the first to have an anatomically correct costume. I was over-compensating.”

Guest, whose directing credits include “A Mighty Wind,” “Waiting for Guffman,” “Best in Show” and “For Your Consideration,” set his most recent project during the ultra-competitive 8th World Mascot Association Championships. Mascots compete for prestigious Gold Fluffy.

The cast includes regulars in Guest’s previous mockumentaries such as Jane Lynch, Parker Posey, Fred Willard, Bob Balaban and Jennifer Coolidge along with Christopher Moynihan, Don Lake, Brad Williams, Zach Woods, Chris O’Dowd, Matt Griesser, Susan Yeagley, Sarah Baker, Tom Bennett, »
