‘Nature Cat’ Star Bobby Moynihan Compares PBS Kids Show to ‘SNL': ‘We’re Puppets Too’

11 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

PBS’ animated “Nature Cat” may be aimed at kids, but it boasts the voices of “SNL” veterans Bobby Moynihan, Taran Killam, Kate McKinnon and Kenan Thompson. The crossover casting makes plenty of sense to Moynihan, who told television critics on Saturday that animation, sketch comedy and even the Muppets all exist under basically the same umbrella. “I’ve always been a big Muppet guy,” Moynihan said of his participation in an animated children’s show. “‘The Muppet Show’ to me, and ‘Sesame Street’ … they’re in the same world as ‘SNL.'” “It’s all a variety show — it just happens that some of them. »

The Last Man On Earth: surviving the apocalypse, slacker style

20 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Aimless driving. Endless masturbation. Homicidal impulses. This is how you endure the end of the world, says the hit sitcom’s star Will Forte – and he’s got the Emmy nominations to prove it

Will Forte looks like a nice guy. An affable, unassuming, polite, cheerful American everyman. That’s his weapon. Orville Willis Forte IV’s amiable demeanour is a mask he whipped off countless times during his eight-year run on Us sketch institution Saturday Night Live, revealing the white supremacists, sex offenders, crooked politicians and inept alcoholic secret agents lurking underneath. He whips off the mask again in the post-apocalyptic comedy series The Last Man On Earth. This time, revealing the unpleasant individual behind the amiable exterior has won him ritual acclaim and Emmy nominations plural.

‘Documentary Now!’ Spoof Born Of Love, From Fred Armisen, Seth Meyers & Bill Hader – TCA

31 July 2015 4:17 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Fred Armisen sang a song about Catalina Island, we think, to warm up the TCA crowd to talk about Documentary Now! – his comedy series nod to Eagles documentaries and such, for IFC. “We just love soft rock," Armisen gushed moments later, onstage with fellow series creators/SNL alums Seth Meyers and Bill Hader. "It's so bold in its gentleness." Each episode is a nod to a different docu, rather than flat-out parody. "If we did our job right, people would be flipping through… »

I Am Chris Farley Review

31 July 2015 3:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Making a documentary isn’t easy. Sure, they’re based on real stories that have already been told, but documentaries comes to life through a proper balance of investigative due diligence and engaging emotionality. For example – Asif Kapadia’s Amy succeeds not only because it chronicles the rise and fall of a poor, wayward musician, but because it’s an emotional powerhouse that never shies away from Winehouse’s dark, unsettling past. Kapadia connects the dots, exposes tragedy, and drags our emotions through Hell along the way.

Much like Winehouse, Chris Farley’s gargantuan talents left this world far too soon thanks to the perils of substance abuse. His story is one of humble beginnings, skyrocketing success, and excessive partying, making me think I Am Chris Farley could be on par with Amy‘s tumultuous ride. Spoiler Alter: it’s not. But that’s not a bad thing! Brent Hodge »

What did we do to deserve 'Troll: The Rise of Harry Potter Jr.'?

31 July 2015 12:34 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A few questions: 1) What the hell is happening? 2) Is this some sick joke? 3) Is it all over? Try your best to make sense out of this: according to a dubious press release, the campy, low-budget 1986 horror movie "Troll" (followed by the so-bad-it's-good cult classic "Troll 2") is being "reprised" for a whole new generation by original writer/director John Carl Buechler as a 3D animated feature entitled -- and I swear to god this is true -- "Troll: The Rise of Harry Potter Jr." It gets better! 2015 Oscar winner Patricia Arquette is allegedly voicing the role of a witch. “The original ‘Troll’ film has achieved cult status, and based upon its success we believed that the timing was right to produce an updated 3D animated version for a whole new generation of filmgoers," said Buechler in a statement. “We are already in pre-production. We have the financing in place and a strong international distributor. »

Amy Poehler and Billy Eichner Celebrate the Premiere of Hulu’s ‘Difficult People’

31 July 2015 11:06 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The premiere party for Hulu’s new original comedy series “Difficult People” went off without a hitch on Thursday evening at New York’s School of Visual Arts Theater despite rain, 90-degree heat and extreme humidity. Executive producer Amy Poehler was all smiles as she stepped out onto the red carpet to support Billy Eichner, best known for his popular man-on-the-street game show “Billy on the Street,” and author/podcaster Julie Klausner, who co-star as struggling comedians who hate everything in the world except for each other and pop culture. The two caustic pals frequently land in awkward situations as a result of their brash behavior.

Klausner began writing the series pilot in the winter of 2012 and sent it to Poehler for some input. Klausner, who met the ‘Saturday Night Live’ alum while enrolled at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, said Poehler immediately loved the show’s storyline and was »

Lol: Chris Farley Replaces Tom Cruise in ‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’

Unfortunately, in the winter of 1997, we lost comedy star Chris Farley. The Saturday Night Live veteran was overcome by fame and glory, letting drugs and alcohol rule a life that brought laughter and joy to millions. We’ll never know just how much more comedy Farley could have brought to the masses in future film […]

Ghostbusters producer torpedoes talk of all-male Ghostbusters movie

31 July 2015 3:33 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Ivan Reitman says Paul Feig’s Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig-led remake is the only Ghostbusters film on studio Sony Pictures’ slate

The producer of the much-hyped female-fronted reboot of the classic 1980s comedy Ghostbusters has denied reports that a rival male team is also heading for cinemas.

Ivan Reitman, who directed 1984’s original Ghostbusters and its 1989 sequel, said in a statement that the only new film on its way to multiplexes would be the confirmed version overseen by Bridesmaids’ film-maker Paul Feig, starring Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig alongside Saturday Night Live alumni Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Feig’s film is due in July 2016 and has become a major talking point following the director’s decision to gender-swap the original’s central spirit-bashing quartet.

‘I Am Chris Farley’ is earnest, flawed tribute to comedy legend

I Am Chris Farley

Written by Steve Burgess

Directed by Brent Hodge & Derik Murray

Canada, 2015

For those who came of age in the ‘90s, Chris Farley is the closest thing to John Belushi that they will ever experience. He was a live wire; an entertainment phenomenon that exploded and flamed out before our very eyes. Brent Hodge and Derik Murray’s new documentary, I Am Chris Farley, tries to illuminate his meteoric rise and fall, as well as to understand his delicate psyche. Mostly, it’s another chance to re-live some of Farley’s best bits, which is just enough to recommend this otherwise disappointing chat-fest.

Chris Farley was born craving the spotlight. Friends and family recount tales of a young Wisconsinite who was determined to entertain everyone around him. Photos and archival footage of his early performances reveal a fearless artist who was willing to do anything to make people laugh, »

Meek Mill’s Dis Track for Drake Is Finally Here

30 July 2015 8:50 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Although he made us wait for a response, Meek Mill did give us something (read: better late than never). The song is called "Wanna Know," and Meek is, in a word, inquisitive. He either really wanted to take advantage here of the there-are-no-dumb-questions mantra, or he really wanted to make a dis track that resembles a "Really?!?" segment from SNL. For example: "I just wanna know, if you ain't write that running through the six shit/ Tell us, who the fuck Quentin out here running through the six with?" Good question. "I just wanna know/ Was it Quentin Miller, was it Usher, was it Denzel where you got your flow?" Good question. "You know you fucked up, right?" Meh question. Essentially, Meek is underlining his argument that he believes Drake to be a fraud; he thinks Drake is an amalgam of the real rappers (and singers) who came before him, »

Wyatt Cenac, Ana Gasteyer Join TBS Comedy Pilot ‘The Group’

TBS has set “Daily Show” alum Wyatt Cenac, “SNL” alum Ana Gasteyer and “The Office’s” Oscar Nunez to star in comedy pilot “The Group,” the network announced Thursday. “The Group” follows a support group for people who think they have been abducted by aliens, which is the subject of a snarky feature piece by skeptical journalist Wyatt Jones (Cenac). The more he digs into the oddballs’ claims, however, the more confused, intrigued and seduced he becomes. Cenac, Gasteyer and Nunez are joined in the cast by Alice Wetterlund (“The Interview,” “Silicon Valley”), Luka Jones (“Her,” “The Campaign”), Tracee Chimo (“Orange is. »

Longtime Daily Show scribe/correspondent Wyatt Cenac — who recently made waves after detailing a rocky relationship with Jon Stewart — will next turn his attention to The Group, TBS’ upcoming comedy pilot in which he will star.

The Group — which counts Conan O’Brien and Greg Daniels (The Office, Parks and Recreation) among its executive producers — focuses on skeptical journalist Wyatt Jones (Cenac), who investigates a support group for people who believe they have been abducted by aliens. The more he digs into the oddballs’ claims, however, the more confused, intrigued and seduced he becomes.

Ivan Reitman shoots down talk of second Ghostbusters movie

30 July 2015 1:48 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we brought you news about a second upcoming Ghostbusters movie, with screenwriter Drew Pearce (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) revealing that he’d finished the script for a instalment from directors Joe and Anthony Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and producer Ivan Reitman, who of course helmed the original two films.

Well, Reitman has now issued a statement, shooting down the report: “There has been a lot of excitement recently about what is happening with the Ghostbusters franchise. As the producer of the new Ghostbusters film, I feel the need to clarify. There is only one new Ghostbusters movie and that is the Paul Feig directed version coming next July, presently filming and going fantastically. The rest is just noise.”

Somewhat bizarrely, Reitman himself contributed to this noise, revealing back in March that the Russos and Pearce would be working on a Ghostbusters movie following Paul Feig’s female-led reboot. »

Wet Hot American Summer EPs Talk 'De-Aging' Process, Season 2 Hopes

30 July 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you plan to visit Camp Firewood for Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer prequel series — which hits the streaming service at midnight on Friday — make sure to leave some room in your duffel bag for suspension of disbelief.

Executive producers David Wain and Michael Showalter, who also wrote the eight-episode limited series, are well aware that the camp’s counselors don’t look exactly as they did in 2001, when the feature film was released.

“When we made the original movie, we were 30 playing 16. Now, we’re in our forties playing 16. There’s only so much you can do to de-age that, »

Review: I Am Chris Farley, A Wistful, Loving Tribute To The Late Comedian

30 July 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

"The fatty falls down and everyone goes home happy!" jokes Chris Farley with a hint of sincere embarrassment, on The Late Show with David Letterman. This was true. No other Saturday Night Live (SNL) alum of that era - Mike Myers, Adam Sandler, David Spade, Rob Schneider - made me roll on the floor with laughter like Chris Farley. It was his childlike innocence, manic energy and great physical abandon that made him so magical.His drug overdose in 1997 came as no surprise to many, as the rumors of his drug and sex fueled escapades were widely publicized. I Am Chris Farley, directed by Brent Hodge (A Brony Tale) and Derik Murray (I Am Bruce Lee, I Am Evel Knievel) and co-produced by Kevin Farley, Chris's...

Amanda Bynes, Is That You?! #Tbt Ask Ashley—Watch This Clip

30 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Amanda Bynes used to give advice to children on the Nickelodeon sketch series All That, which was basically the kids' version of Saturday Night Live. Bynes' cute little Ashley character would sit atop a twin bed, wearing a prim and proper outfit with her hair pulled back, and read letters people wrote asking for her advice. She'd start out in an innocent, caring voice, then she'd become an evil demon-possessed alien girl, and then go right back to her sweet self.  Girl had great comedy chops. Watch for yourself.

What Hollywood Gets Right (and So Wrong) About Staten Island

30 July 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The release of Saturday Night Live head writer — and Staten Island native — Colin Jost’s coming-of-age comedy Staten Island Summer (available on Netflix Friday after a one-week run in theaters) isn’t the first time the “forgotten borough” has taken center stage in a movie or TV show. But as a native myself, I’ve always been surprised by how underrepresented the Island has been onscreen. Apart from 2009’s Staten Island (a barely noticed crime drama starring Ethan Hawke), the Island’s main claim to fame on the big screen has been when it doubled for other places in movies: The Godfather (Long Island), Safe Men (Rhode Island, weirdly enough), and School of Rock, where the venerable St. George Theatre was the setting for the final battle of the bands, though the location was never identified. The theater also performed double-duty on TV’s Smash, where it served as both »

I Am Chris Farley – The Review

30 July 2015 4:06 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Directed by Brent Dodge, Eric Murray, written by Steve Burgess

With Chris Farley (archive footage), Dan Aykroyd, Christina Applegate, Bob Odenkirk, Adam Sandler, David Spade, Kevin P Farley, Tom Farley, Bo Derek, many others.

In the world of comedy certain talents stand out as heavyweights, both literally and figuratively. Large of both frame and talent very often these talented performers can seem more like a force of nature running amok in the mundane world, creating comedic chaos for our amusement.

The first that comes to my mind would have to be Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle, his name forever tarnished with a scandalous incident that was proved in court never to have happened, Fatty Arbuckle deserves better. He was genuinely talented, a series of dvd releases proves it. He taught Buster Keaton everything he knew. He was also incredibly funny.

I would also add the name of Curly Howard of the Three Stooges, »
