Andy Samberg Wears a Strange Bubble Suit on Jimmy Kimmel Live, But for a Very Good Reason

3 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Andy Samberg is looking out for the safety others in the strangest way possible.  The Saturday Night Live alum visited Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday completely encased by a ventilated bubble suit that would have given the original bubble boy a run for his money. But his reasoning behind it was noble, because Samberg had the flu and he didn't want to get anyone else sick. "I talked to a couple of ABC execs and they said you wanted," the 36-year-old Brooklyn Nine-Nine star told Kimmel. "I'm on all kinds of meds, my heads a little soupy. This feels like a dream!" Another dream come true for Samberg is his future hosting gig of the 2015 Emmys, airing in September on Fox. »

You need to see Tetris and Donkey Kong vs Adam Sandler in crazy new Pixels trailer

8 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The latest teaser for Adam Sandler's science fiction comedy Pixels turns Tetris and Donkey Kong into Earth's worst enemies.

The premise for Harry Potter director Chris Columbus's new movie is that alien invaders attempt to conquer earth by pitting our favourite '80s video game characters against us.

Naturally, Us president Will Cooper (Kevin James) has no choice but to call in the planet's best gamers - Sandler, Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage - to take down these invading aliens.

Our heroes get a little boost when they're joined by the army's chief weapons developer Violet van Patten ( True Detective star Michelle Monaghan).

The comedy was written by Timothy Dowling and Sandler's long-time collaborator Tim Herlihy, a former Saturday Night Live writer.

Pixels opens on July 24 in the Us and August 12 in the UK. Watch a previous trailer below: »

Indie Spotlight: ‘Almost Asian’ Lives Between Two Worlds

9 hours ago | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Through web series episodes, a half-Japanese, half-German actress is exploring her heritage. Katie Malia is the creator and star of Almost Asian, in which she shares various scenarios related to her mixed-race identity.

On the surface, Malia’s web series appears similar to many other projects helmed by aspiring actors in Los Angeles. Certain episodes do trend in that direction, but others embrace Malia’s Japanese identity by taking on the tone of a campy Far East TV program. It’s not just Malia herself who is multicultural; her web series itself lives somewhere between La and Tokyo.

“My intention with Almost Asian is to celebrate the nuanced mixed-ethnic identity and challenge our social conventions regarding race and culture through a heightened-comedic lens," said Malia in a press release.

The latest episode takes place at a karaoke bar. It features a guest appearance from former Saturday Night Live cast member Horatio Sanz and, »

Watch: Dana Carvey’s Legendary ‘SNL’ Audition

2 July 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

The man who brought us Garth Algar from “Wayne’s World” also brought a veritable menagerie of characters to NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” in the late ‘80s. Dana Carvey is one of the most spectacular celebrity impersonators of all time, as his early audition tape for Lorne Michaels and the SNL team demonstrates. His audition is a barrage of seemingly impulsive impressions; the comedian confesses at one point that he prepared very little, but keeps offering new ideas and becoming new people. Just wait until you get to his Robin Williams! His impressions are so legendary they even make other talented impressionists nearly pee themselves laughing—have you seen Bill Hader completely lose it over Carvey’s mock-conversation between Paul McCartney and John Lennon?

Theater Review: Encores!’ (and Jake Gyllenhaal’s, and Ellen Greene’s) Little Shop of Horrors

2 July 2015 8:12 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The mood was ecstatic last night for the first of three concert performances of Little Shop of Horrors, the nearly perfect 1982 musical that’s the centerpiece of this summer’s “Encores! Off-Center” series. (The two remaining performances are today at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.) In the dark before the purple curtain rose, the sound of the first guitar chords drew cheers of recognition; later, the evening’s big celebrity draw, Jake Gyllenhaal, though costumed for his role as the nebbishy Seymour Krelborn, was welcomed like a rock god. So too were the trio of singing urchins (Tracy Nicole Chapman, Marva Hicks, and Ramona Keller) who act as the show’s sassy chorus, and the adorable little boy (Anwar Kareem) who did nothing much but carry around the bloodlusting Venus flytrap that eventually (in a larger form played by Eddie Cooper) eats Cleveland.

Full Wet Hot American Summer Trailer Reunites Old Cast, Gives First Look at Kirsten Wiig and Jon Hamm

2 July 2015 7:27 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is easily one of the most anticipated TV events of the summer, and if you weren’t already excited to return to Camp Firewood, the series’ full length trailer will surely get you pumped up. The video below provides us with our first real look at exactly what the Netflix series will be like, and thankfully, it appears just as strange, stupid, and marvelous as David Wain and Michael Showalter’s cult 2001 film. This all-new Wet Hot American Summer trailer reunites the old gang, as the show will take place two months before the events of the original movie, despite the fact that all of the actors are 15 years older (which should only add to wonderful insanity). Additionally, this video offers up first glimpses of new characters played by the likes of Kristen Wiig (Saturday Night Live) and Jon Hamm (Mad Men), among others. »

Staten Island Summer Trailer Features a Boatload of SNL Cameos

1 July 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first trailer for the indie comedy Staten Island Summer has been released online, and it is chock full of familiar faces. Written by Saturday Night Live head writer and Weekend Update co-host Colin Jost, the film tells the story of two recent high school graduates and their last summer as lifeguards before they head off for college. It’s a premise that’s been covered countless times before, but Staten Island Summer was inspired by Jost’s own experiences, and he enlisted a ridiculous number of SNL alums to appear. Surrounding the film’s stars Graham Phillips (The Good Wife) and Zack Pearlman (The Inbetweeners) are folks like Bobby Moynihan, Will Forte, Cecily Strong, Fred Armisen, Kate McKinnon, Mike O’Brien, and many more. The SNL cameos go a long way towards making this trailer an enjoyable affair, and while it’s well-treaded territory, Jost and director Rhys Thomas »

It’s been over half a year since Chris Pratt hosted the Season 40 premiere of “Saturday Night Live,” but the episode is still giving us triceratops doo-sized drops of gold. The latest nugget to fall into our laps is this: a “Cut For Time” short video Pratt did wherein he impersonated Jason Statham making a commercial for his line of flat steaks — called, get this, Jason Steakums. Which are made of 100% Cow Face, naturally. . »

Amy Schumer Talks ‘Trainwreck’ Sex Scenes and Almost Being ‘The Bachelorette’

30 June 2015 4:26 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Amy Schumer said she seriously considered signing on to be the next Bachelorette in the ABC series after the enthusiastic response from her appearance on the current season. “I really was very tempted,” she noted when people suggested she take over; ABC exec Robert Mills even made overtures to her on Twitter. “But I think the franchise would be over.” Referencing the show’s current storyline, she added, “People got so mad that Kaitlyn f—ked one guy, can you imagine me (on the show)?”

Schumer was speaking to a packed audience of SAG members following a screening of her new film “Trainwreck” last Friday. She was joined by co-stars Colin Quinn, Vanessa Bayer and professional wrestler John Cena. The film stars Schumer as a hard-partying journalist reluctant to commit to a relationship until she meets a surgeon played by Bill Hader.

Upfront 2015: Advertisers Rush To Latenight To Catch Colbert, Fallon, Kimmel

30 June 2015 12:17 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Madison Avenue is rushing to stay up late.

Advertiser interest in latenight television is more intense than it has been in years, media buyers say – so much so that sponsors are willing to pay bigger price increases to advertise on latenight TV shows than they are in primetime.

“I just think latenight is the hot daypart,” said Billie Gold, vice president and director of buying and programming research at Carat, a large media-buying firm. “There are days when latenight’s 18-to-49 numbers are higher than shows in primetime.”

To be sure, advertiser interest in the category has already been heightened in recent years, owing to the debut of Jimmy Kimmel in the 11:35 p.m. slot at ABC in 2013 and Jimmy Fallon’s well-received reworking of NBC’s venerable “Tonight Show” in 2014. Now, CBS is ratcheting up the fray by introducing two new entrants. James Corden has already launched his »
