Watch: Jim Gaffigan, Tony Hale, Jack McBrayer, Ellie Kemper & More In 12-Minute Comedy Short 'The Nobodies'

21 August 2014 2:33 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Earlier this week, Dusty Brown and Greg Bratman — who are Upright Citizens Brigade alumni — quietly released their new short film “The Nobodies,” and they rounded up comedy names like Jim Gaffigan, "Veep" star Tony HaleJack McBrayerEllie Kemper, and Tony Award-winning actress Sutton Foster to play along. The short grew out of a duo Brown and Bratman formed in NYC called “The Barrel Brothers,” that they describe as 'a talentless vaudevillian team of two naïve brothers from a fictional town in Kansas who were out of their depth performing in the big city.' Their long-running show at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater won Best Emerging Comedy Duo in 2004, and gave them a platform where they met the actors who appear in their short. Here's the official synopsis: In “The Nobodies”, our two central characters (Greg and Dusty) have to make a fantastical journey through their own identity crises. »

Smallville's Michael Rosenbaum to Star as Impastor in TV Land Pilot

17 June 2014 4:29 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

TV’s erstwhile Lex Luthor is up to his old tricks, this time faking it as a clergyman.

Smallville alum Michael Rosenbaum has landed the lead in the TV Land pilot Impastor, our sister site Deadline reports.

The single-camera comedy from Christopher Vane (Suddenly Susan, Bill Engvall) follows a deep-in-debt scalawag who lies low in a small town by passing himself off as the gay pastor the local church recently hired.

Since wrapping his Smallville run, Rosenbaum’s TV credits have included the Fox comedy Breaking In and NBC’s Will Ferrell-produced, 1960s-set midseason comedy Mission Control, opposite Krysten Ritter (though his role, »

Watch Sutton Foster and Hilary Duff in Younger

10 June 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Here's your first look at TV Land's Sutton Foster/Hilary Duff comedy Younger, about a newly single 40-year-old mom (Foster) who decides to disguise herself, with the help of Bff Debi Mazar, as a 26-year-old, to ease her transition back into the workforce. Do 26-year-olds all have drab highlights and an overaffinity for curling irons? Is that the key to seeming younger? Perhaps. That, and copious flirtation. Plus a constant voice in the back of their heads, saying, Is this really what you want your life to be like? It's not too late to go get an Mba, you know. Anyway, Sutton Foster! »

Miscellania: Moustache Banner, Reader Spotlight, Tony Hangover

9 June 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Three Quick Things.

1. Enjoy the new banner, subject matter chosen by reader John who won the last round of "say what". It'll be moustaches all week (though not the same ones. If you're paying attention the banner changes fairly regularly.)

2. I am so appreciative of you readers. Not that many people signed up for subscriptons so I'll still be a wailing beggarwoman out of a tragic musical at nights but I received so many kind birthday wishes and that's wonderful, too. The fitness and self-improvement group that some of you signed up for is chugging along nicely, too...early stages. So it's time to bring back Reader Spotlight! We'll start again real soon so you can get to know each other, the Tfe community.

3. I don't really have a Tony hangover -- I was good last night but for the birthday cake devouring -- but the Tonys linger. (I am »

Tony Awards performance: Sutton Foster was 'On My Way' as 'Violet' (Video)

Sutton Foster may have lost her bid for Best Musical (Actress) at Sunday's Tonys but she sure showed us why she earned her sixth nomination in that category for her performance as "Violet."  Not yet 40, she already has two Tonys on her mantle for "Thoroughly Modern Millie" (2002) and "Anything Goes" (2011).

2014 Tony Awards Live-Blog

8 June 2014 4:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I was in London two weeks ago and caught four plays -- Well, three plays and one musical -- in three days, so when the Olivier Awards roll around, I'll be well-prepared.  However, with Josh Lasser handling most of the New York junkets for Team HitFix, I haven't made it to NYC since Fall 2012, which would also be the last time I made it to Broadway. As a result, I've seen none of this year's Tony nominees.  So follow along for full coverage of what I'm able to understand from the 2014 Tony Awards. I know Hugh Jackman is hosting. I know Neil Patrick Harris is both a performer and a guaranteed winner.  Click through for the full live-blog and comment below, should the spirit move you! 7:55 p.m. Et.

Firsts & Worsts: Sutton Foster on awkward headshots and bad 'Millie' reviews

5 June 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Every actor has to start somewhere — and when it comes to theater performers, their roots are often similar, right down to the roles they cut their teeth on or the songs they first used at an audition.

From Millie to Violet, Sutton Foster has seen and sung it all, and she’s got the stories to share about her time on the Broadway stage — and the much smaller stages in her hometown in Georgia. Foster is the latest theater star to recount some of her favorite (or least favorite) musical memories in Entertainment Weekly’s Firsts & Worsts Series.

Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino on Stalking Sutton Foster, Producing Broadway, and Bunheads Memories

4 June 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After the unfortunate and unjust cancellation of their series Bunheads last year, writer-producers Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino moved back to Brooklyn. But they couldn’t sever ties with leading lady Sutton Foster. If anything, they paid to get closer, volunteering to produce her next project, the Broadway musical Violet. The show, with music by Jeanine Tesori, stars Foster as a girl with a tremendous facial scar. It’s funny, strange, moving, and completely worth the price of admission; it is also up for four Tony Awards this weekend. The Palladinos chatted with Vulture about their obsession with Foster and the perks of producing theatre. And just because we could, we found out about the origins of BunheadsTommy Lee Jones impression-off.When I saw Violet last month, I had no idea what it was about. It’s almost better not to know going in.Amy Sherman-Palladino: That's the exciting thing. »

Tonys: Actress Nominees Share Their Intros to New York, Broadway Debuts (Video)

3 June 2014 11:47 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

New York -- Just over a week ago, The Hollywood Reporter conducted our first Tonys Actress Roundtable with six 2014 Tony nominees -- Tyne Daly (Mothers and Sons), Sutton Foster (Violet), Latanya Richardson Jackson (A Raisin in the Sun), Idina Menzel (If/Then), Jessie Mueller (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical) and Kelli O'Hara (The Bridges of Madison County) -- and the conversation produced so much interesting material that it couldn't all fit into the main video. Therefore, THR is now releasing an 11-minute bonus feature: the actresses' discussion about what first brought them to New York and what they regard as their "big break"

Tony Awards 2014: Who will win?

3 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Will Neil Patrick Harris claim his first Tony Award this Sunday for his gender-bending turn in the musical revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch? Probably. Will fellow multiple-Emmy winner Bryan Cranston win for playing Lyndon B. Johnson in the biodrama All the Way? Count on it. But will it be the Carole King biomusical Beautiful or the murderously funny A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder that earns top honors as the Best New Musical of the Broadway season?

On that point, as on many other tight races in this year’s Tony contest, EW critics Melissa Rose Bernardo and Thom Geier are divided. »
