Robert Downey Jr. Calls Himself an Emotional Chameleon, Is Right

4 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jimmy Fallon had to interview Robert Downey Jr. this week, but instead of asking the Avengers actor about his rocky past, Fallon asked him to pretend to smell bacon. Needless to say, there were still a lot of emotions. Fallon's fake interview went decidedly better than this one, and it's a perpetual treat to watch these guys (both SNL alums) improvise together like a bunch of fun friends. »

Jenny Slate to star in new comedy series on FX

8 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Comedian and star of last year’s indie comedy hit Obvious Child, Jenny Slate, will star in a new comedy show for FX. What’s more, the show is to be co-created by Slate’s Obvious Child writer Elisabeth Holm and the film’s director Gillian Robespierre.

The project is said to tell the story of two native New York girls who are creative partners, named Viv and Lou, who become friends, make a film together and decide to drive across the country in search of inspiration for their new effort.

Ari Graynor (For A Good Time Call…) will co-star opposite Slate, with production on the pilot set to begin as early as next week in New York City.

Outside of Obvious Child, Slate has recently appeared in hit shows such as House of Lies and Parks and Recreation, as well as enjoying a stint on Saturday Night Live.

10 awesome feminist comedy sketches

11 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Every time Amy Schumer comes out with a new sketch, it's impossible not to think about how necessary it is that a female standup comic has the platform on Comedy Central to be as irreverent, truthful, and damning as she wants. It wasn't so long ago that females in sketch comedy were reduced to one-note roles. (Check out "Laugh-In" sometime and note how many times the point of a bit is "Oh, Goldie. Such a space cadet.") We picked ten examples of feminism in sketch comedy dating all the way back to the heyday of Carol Burnett. Comb the hair on your Asian-American doll and enjoy. 1. Carol Burnett is "movie star crazy" One of the enduring treats of "The Carol Burnett Show" is the feminist undertones in many of her sketches. The fact that she's so outlandish and having so much fun is a triumph in itself, but in this sketch, »

6 Times Cecily Strong Shut It Down at the White House Correspondents' Dinner

15 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

SNL cast member Cecily Strong hosted Saturday night's White House Correspondents' Dinner, and she didn't hold back one bit. No issues were off topic for Cecily, who cracked jokes about recent issues with race, the continued fight for gender equality, and, of course, Hillary Clinton. Considering that she came after Barack Obama and his "anger translator," Luther, she had a tough act to follow. We have to say, though, she really held her own. Keep reading for our favorite zingers from the speech, and watch it in full above. "Feels right to have a woman follow President Obama, doesn't it?" "Let's give it up for the Secret Service. I don't want to be too hard on those guys. You know, because they're the only law enforcement agency that will get in trouble if a black man gets shot." "It feels so weird to be up here. And, Ok, I promise, »

‘No, You Shut Up,’ Featuring Henson Creatures, Has Much More to Say

16 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Comedy Central made an extensive search for someone to take the reins of “The Daily Show” after host Jon Stewart recently announced he intended to depart later this year. Executives found Trevor Noah, an up-and-coming comic from South Africa, but did they consider the sparring blue and red crabs, talking hot dog and chatty, right-wing squirrel holding court at startup cable network Fusion?

Comedian Paul F. Tompkins has tilted at news and politics for three cycles of “No, You Shut Up,” with a cadre of anthropomorphic creatures made by the Jim Henson Company in tow. At any moment, Bo Beetle, an insect who hosts a radio show, might offer commentary, or a cat known as “Supreme Leader Meow,” a deposed world leader, might weigh in on the issues of the day. “Shut Up” is just one more entry in a parade of shows like John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight »

Here Is Wolf Blitzer Not Laughing at the White House Correspondents' Dinner

19 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Every year, the Washington press corps gets gussied up in their finest finery, ropes in a few unsuspecting celebrities and invites a comedian to perform for a large group of people with no sense of humor. The annual White House Correspondents' Dinner, known with faux self-deprecation as the "Nerd Prom," took place on Saturday, with "Saturday Night Live" cast member and former "Weekend Update" co-anchor doing the let's-just-call-them honors. Strong, with the help of a group of writers from "SNL," "The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon" and "Late Night With Seth Meyers," got off a few zingers, namely telling President Obama his hair is now "so white it can talk back to the police" and identifying the Secret Service as "the only law enforcement agency that will get in trouble if a black man gets shot." (Incidentally, while the Washington press corps was hobnobbing with the people they cover, real news was. »

5 Things We Learned From 2015 White House Correspondents' Dinner

26 April 2015 9:20 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The annual White House Correspondents' Dinner is one of the Washington's most bizarre traditions. The event, which has been running just over a century, is nominally supposed to celebrate excellence in reporting on the White House — the use of journalism as a way of speaking truth to power. In recent years, it has been increasingly criticized for becoming a long, self-congratulatory celebration of how awesome everyone in attendance is, complete with an inexplicable red carpet that Tom Brokaw claimed was less dignified than a junior prom — a fitting comparison given »

Watch: President Obama and Cecily Strong speak at 2015 White House Correspondents’ Dinner

26 April 2015 9:18 AM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

President Barack Obama and Saturday Night Live cast member Cecily Strong offered up some nice zingers at last night’s 2015 White House Correspondents’ Dinner (Whcd). The annual fete gathers beltway reporters and the president, along with a celebrity host (Cecily Strong this year), to party and listen to the speakers roast themselves and others. President Obama, keeping with the current thinking that he — now in his second and final term — has “no fucks left to give,” demonstrated that even more so last night with his comments, which were aimed at just about everyone. As he usually has done … Continue reading →

Saturday Night Live’s Cecily Strong may have been the headliner at tonight’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, but it was the President of the United States who had the media, politicians and Hollywood elites rolling in the aisles. President Obama opened with a risque spin on what his opponents criticize as a devil-may-care attitude in the twilight of his two terms in office. “I am determined to make the most of every moment I have left,” Obama said. “After the midterm elections, my advisers asked me, ‘Mr. President, do you have a ‘Bucket List’?” Also Read: White House Correspondents' Dinner: Are Celebrities Really. »

Aziz Ansari, whose next show will be on Netflix.

MTV has cancelled the thriller Eye Candy after one season. Series star Victoria Justice made the announcement via twitter.

Hi everyone! I wanted you guys to hear it from me first, that the cast and I received news that Eye Candy will not be returning for season 2.  Even though a lot of you are going to feel sad/angry, please know that playing Lindy Sampson, is something that I loved and I will hold dear to my heart. I couldn’t have asked for better cast mates to work with either.  They are the most down to earth, talented and kind souls that I am so happy to have met.

An Unleashed Jason Sudeikis Steals The Hilarious Sleeping With Other People

25 April 2015 1:07 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The transition from the small to the big screen is a tricky one to master. Some personalities are brimming with so much energy, talent and charisma that they can.t help but ascend to celluloid while others struggle to find their voice in their new medium and slowly decline into obscurity. Saturday Night Live alumni Jason Sudeikis is somewhere in between. Sudeikis. rise from scene-stealing support in Semi-Pro and The Campaign to credible leading man in Hall Pass, Horrible Bosses and We.re The Millers has been impressive. But he hasn.t looked entirely at home in these parts, and some of his performances have felt a tad forced, which has slightly hindered his comedic efforts. But things appear to be changing for Sudeikis. Over the last year, he has looked to move into more independent and character-driven fare with the likes of Drinking Buddies, Tumbledown and Sleeping With Other »

Tribeca: Jason Sudeikis on How and When to Improv in a Movie

25 April 2015 8:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Meet the 2015 Tribeca Filmmakers #54 : Sean Mewshaw Tackles Small-Town Grief in 'Tumbledown' With his dark beard and deep, rich voice, Jason Sudeikis is a powerful embodiment of 21st century masculinity, which makes you wonder why it took him so long to land plump romantic roles. The wait, it seems, was worth it. Sudeikis, who has had leading roles in a wide range of television and film comedies over the past decade — from "Saturday Night Live" to "30 Rock" and "We're the Millers" to "Horrible Bosses" — stars opposite Rebecca Hall in "Tumbledown," a romantic comedy from the married writer/director duo Desi Van Til and Sean Mewshaw, set in rural Maine. The film derives inspiration from the stories of brilliant real-life singer-songwriters like Nick Drake and Jeff Buckley whose lives were cut short too soon. Hall plays the grieving widow of a famous folk singer who decides to hire Sudeikis'. »

10 Stories You Might Have Missed: Native American actors quit Adam Sandler movie

24 April 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

First up in this week’s 10 Stories You Might Have Missed: Adam Sandler’s newest comedy is already offending people, and it hasn’t even finished filming yet. Sandler’s Netflix-produced satirical Western, “The Ridiculous Six” (yes, the title’s a nod to “The Magnificent Seven”) was shooting in New Mexico when about a dozen Native American actors reportedly walked off set because the film insults their culture. The actors, most of whom were from the Navajo Nation, said the script for “The Ridiculous Six” insulted Apache women and elders. “The examples of disrespect included Native women’s names such as Beaver’s Breath and No Bra, an actress portraying an Apache woman squatting and urinating while smoking a peace pipe, and feathers inappropriately positioned on a teepee,” Indian Country Today Media Network reported. The actors expressed disappointment they were asked to portray an inaccurate and disrespectful depiction of Apache »

Watch: 'SNL' Editor Adam Epstein Talks the 'Drug Rush' of Digital Shorts

Read More: SNL's 5 Best Digital Shorts, er, Pre-Recorded Sketches of the Season The digital short has become an integral "Saturday Night Live" centerpiece over the past decade thanks to poster child Andy Samberg, but what would such viral hits like "Housewives of Disney," "The Beygency" and "Wes Anderson Horror" be without editor Adam Epstein? You probably don't know his name or his face, but Epstein's post-production work for the NBC sketch comedy show has provided audiences with one viral sensation after the next. As part of the Nab Creative Masters Series, Epstein joined Meagan Keane, senior marketing manager at Adobe, for a lengthy discussion about his comedy roots and the "drug rush" that comes with editing for "SNL" digital shorts. Given how the shorts start production on Mondays and don't get delivered to air until around 10 minutes before broadcast, somehow the "drug rush" comparison seems »
