While director Blake Edwards and star Peter Sellers are best known for their several Pink Panther efforts, they also collaborated on one additional wholly unrelated title, The Party (1968). It was their third time working together, with only two of the Panther films preceding it, and arriving the same year that Bud Yorkin attempted an unsuccessful Us version of the Clouseau character starring Alan Arkin with Inspector Clouseau. For the most part, this is a film that allows Sellers free reign with his fake persona, though by today’s standards this might play something like an SNL extended skit feature. Though Sellers was a top tier performer, many may likely find his appearance here in ‘brown face’ as a bumbling Indian actor to be off-putting, even if it isn’t pointedly demeaning.
The story is about as simple as the unassuming title. Hrundi V. Bakshi (Sellers) is an Indian actor in Hollywood, »

There are two types of people in this world, those who love Bill Murray and those who are liars. His body of work has spanned over three decades, from Saturday Night Live and Ghostbusters to Lost in Translation and Monuments Men. For the current generation he’s kind of always been a hero to us all, there’s always a quote to remember or a story to tell.
Put it this way, Bill Murray is like the modern day Jesus.
Hear us out, we’re not saying he’s the son of God or anything, or that he’s going around performing miracles – although he could be – but like Jesus, Bill Murray has developed a mythical reputation and with that stories so unbelievable and astonishing that we’ve convinced ourselves that they’re true. And knowing Bill Murray and his penchant for the unpredictable, they very well may be.

It looks like Kenan Thompson will continue to bring the funny on Saturday Night Live...for now. The comedian was in the center of reports that he would be leaving the popular late-night TV sketch after this season, but a rep for the NBC show has shut those rumors down.

Thompson, who has been a cast member since 2003 and is known for his wide variety of impressions (Al Roker, Al Sharpton and Wanda Sykes, to name a few) along with some of his recurring characters (Hi, D'Andre Cole!), was also rumored to possibly exit the live comedy show »

After performing on the late-night sketch show for more than a decade, rumors surfaced today that Kenan Thompson is entering his last season, but now a rep for the show is speaking out about the rumor to Et.

Ever since its second season, when Chevy Chase decided to ditch Saturday Night Live for Hollywood—he was replaced by some guy named Bill Murray—the only constant on NBC’s long-running sketch series has been change.
Some cast members leave to make movies or TV series or joke-punk albums nominally written by their British alter egos. Others quit in protest. Still more are forced out, not because they want to leave but because the show is going through a fraught series of retoolings (see: the ’80s). Or because it has to make room for a new crop of bright young things (see: Chris Parnell, »
