There's a reason Dwayne Johnson's movies hit it big at the box office and he's busy picking up one new project after the next. He's insanely charismatic and really does come across as the nicest guy. Whether he's kicking ass on the big screen, hamming it up on SNL or turning on the charm during interviews, odds are, the guy's going to make me smile and that's definitely the case in this brand new prank video from Screen Junkies. First, a little background. During the Pain & Gain junket back in 2013, Nick Mundy had a little fun with the cast by walking in and essentially blowing all of his interviews by being a huge The Rock fan. Sure enough, the interviews themselves are awful, but they were cut into a hilarious package, accumulating well over 500,000 views and sparking a lasting social media/junket friendship between Johnson and Mundy.

Conner4real is a mock music documentary that focuses on a rapper (Samberg), who is forced to reunite with his old boyband after his career goes down the pan.
Judd Apatow is producing the movie, which will see Meadows play Samberg's hyperactive manager.
It was recently announced that Samberg will host the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards this September. »
One of the more interesting aspects of the upcoming Ant-Man I'm interested in seeing is how they handle the character's size. There was already that bit in the trailer involving the train set, which looked like it was more of a "Saturday Night Live" spoof than something from the actual film, but I can't really judge that sequence out of context. Based on these new pictures from the movie via Empire, however, size will play a major role, as it should, but will it be corny and a joke each time out or will it merely be a situation where the title character has to avoid being stepped on by humans that don't see himc Will there be a joke about a can of RAIDc One can only hope not. Ant-Man hits theaters on July 17, check out the new pictures below. The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings »

Earlier this month we got a poster for the Top Secret Untitled Lonely Island Movie, the upcoming comedy from The Lonely Island members Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone and producer Judd Apatow, whcih will see Samberg as Connor, a rapper forced to try and reunite his old boy band after his latest album bombs.
Well, we now have a title for the Universal comedy in Connor4real, while Deadline and The Wrap are reporting that Tim Meadows (Saturday Night Live) and Imogen Poots (Filth) have joined the cast, with Meadows set to play Connor’s “constantly upbeat and overworked manager” Harry and Poots as Connor’s love interest.
The project is said to “take aim at the fluffy music documentaries of recent years such as Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never and Katy Perry’s Part of Me” and will also star Sarah Silverman as Connor’s sarcastic publicist. »

No show produces more divisive critical response than “Saturday Night Live.” And that makes sense: Comedy is subjective, and nowhere on television does that more apply than “SNL,” where one person’s sketch of the night is another viewer’s worst sketch of the year. So a list like this isn’t meant as a definitive statement but rather one personal point of view. That’s both an obvious and necessary distinction to make. No sketches were unintentionally omitted. I went back, looked at every sketch I graded, adjusted in-the-moment rankings accordingly and came up with 15 great sketches in what I personally saw as the show’s greatest season in the five years I’ve covered it here at HitFix. Honorable Mentions: “Swiftamine” (Chris Rock), “Graveyard Song” (Jim Carrey), “Nest-Spresso” (Cameron Diaz), “Overly Full Brain” (James Franco) Tostinos Activity Pack For Women (Jk Simmons) Click through the gallery below to »

Warning: Spoilers ahead. With Saturday Night Live on hiatus for the summer, Pete Davidson—who at 21 is the youngest member of the current cast—spent last night watching the first two Harry Potter movies and live-tweeting his foul-mouthed appreciation for the Boy Who Lived throughout. For example: "Harry is at Hogwarts for 2 days and already becomes the Seeker. Muthaf--kas a legend," the funnyman tweeted while watching the first film in the series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Noting one of the key moments toward the end of the movie, he wrote, "The team is in trouble and Ron Weasley steps the f--k up and wins a brilliant game of chess." A further sampling »
The film took the prestigious Us Dramatic Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival earlier in the year.

Get your fix of righteous indignation below, and stay posted for outrage updates throughout the week. Jim Breuer doesn't care about being ranked 139 out of 141 on Rolling Stone's infamous "SNL" cast ranking -- he just has a problem with Rs writer Rob Sheffield's tone. "I lost all respect for Rolling Stone, because I didn’t care about the list. It’s what that guy wrote about people," Breuer railed on Wednesday's "Howard Stern Show." "Like, there were cast members like, 'Oh this douchebag.' Like why would you -- people are just trying to make a living, and what kind of douche -- where are you at in your life -- that gives you the right to stand there and go, 'Number 134, this guy, I wish he would die.'"

With a constant flow of thrilling success stories about superyoung celebrity megastars - like Jennifer Lawrence, Ansel Elgort, and Kendall Jenner, to name a few - it can be easy to think you're going nowhere fast. But what we often neglect to remember is that plenty of celebrities don't achieve success until later in life. Kristen Wiig didn't start delivering all those SNL zingers until she was 32, and Jon Hamm didn't start delivering his memorable performances until he was almost 40! Even the endlessly stunning Lupita Nyong'o didn't receive industry praise until she was 30, when she won an Oscar for her role in 12 Years a Slave. Still doubting that you can achieve plenty after your 20s? Keep reading to see all the huge stars who hit it big later in life. »
There wasn't a telephone in sight. For the inaugural celebration of the goofy and good-hearted Red Nose Day in America, NBC invited seemingly everyone in Hollywood to hang out at New York City's own Hammerstein Ballroom for three hours in an attempt to "be funny for money" — and it didn't require a single participant to awkwardly answer a phone on stage in order to collect donations.
