'In Living Color': The Stars Who Almost Made The Cut

17 July 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

"In Living Color" was a launching ground for some of Hollywood's biggest names, including Jamie Foxx, Jim Carrey and even a young Jennifer Lopez, but who did show creator Keenen Ivory Wayans pass on?

"I missed out on Martin Lawrence, Chris Rock and John Leguizamo," Keenen told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Thursday Access Hollywood Live, when asked if ever passed on anyone who hit it big.

"And not that they weren't good. It was just at that particular time, they were not on the same level as the people that I had already cast," the actor/comedian, ...

So you've been fired from 'SNL': Here's what to do next

15 July 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Brooks Wheelan, we hardly knew ye… and now we may never get the chance to. The blue-eyed comedian revealed Monday night that he won’t be returning for a second year at Saturday Night Live this fall—and that the decision wasn’t his to make. In a fairly delightful tweet, Wheelan said that he’d been let go. (His exact words: “Fired from New York, it’s Saturday Night!” Which is funny enough to make me wish things hadn’t ended this way.)

Clearly, getting canned from television’s most august comedy institution must be a bit of a bummer. »

A Ten-Year Anniversary (2004-2014): Top 10 Cinematic Duds from Yesterday

11 June 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Has it actually been ten years already since we have been engaged in the realm of films dating back to 2004? A decade is certainly a long period of time to build our appreciation for cinema up until this critical point in 2014. In looking back at 2004, one can recall fondly some of the more desirable releases to come out at that time. For instance, the superb Million Dollar Baby was the Academy Award-winning film for 2004. Even the comedies that were released that year gave movie audiences cause to rejoice with such ditties as the sleeper indie hit Napoleon Dynamite and well as mainstream laughers in Mean Girls and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy.

Unfortunately for every gem there is a dud and then some. And 2004 had its share to say the least. So how about getting nostalgic and recalling some of the notable misses that were heaped on misled moviegoers »

Emmy Watch: How the Late Night Upheaval Could Shake Up the Variety Series Competition

21 May 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

When Johnny Carson signed off from The Tonight Show in 1992, his reign as the King of Late Night was celebrated with an Emmy win for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series. Granted, the competition that year was sparse: Fox's sketch-comedy show In Living Color and NBC's Late Night with David Letterman were the only others nominated.

This year, as newly retired Tonight Show host Jay Leno attempts to secure one final nomination in the category now known as...

Larry Wilmore of 'The Daily Show' Jumps Into Late-Night Hot Seat (Video)

12 May 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The game of talk show musical chairs plays on.  Comedy Central has tapped Larry Wilmore of "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" to take over the 11:30 Pm slot as Stephen Colbert preps his move to CBS to host "The Late Show."

Wilmore, currently Jon Stewart's Senior Black Correspondent, has long been a writer for television, from classics "In Living Color" and "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" to his Emmy-winning "The Bernie Mac Show," which he created.

Wilmore Takes Over The Colbert Timeslot

10 May 2014 12:34 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Jon Stewart and Wilmore will serve as executive producers. More details will be revealed at a later date.

Wilmore joined "The Daily Show" in 2006 and serves as the comedy show's "Senior Black Correspondent". Wilmore has also written for shows such as "In Living Color" and "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, co-created "The PJs" and "The Bernie Mac Show," and was a consulting producer on NBC's "The Office".

Larry Wilmore will replace Colbert after 'The Daily Show' in 2015

9 May 2014 5:21 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Late Friday (May 9) afternoon, Comedy Central announced that Larry Wilmore has landed the coveted post-"Daily Show" time slot starting in January 2015. With tongue-in-cheek very pointedly, Comedy Central promises that "The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore" will be "a comedic look at news, current events and pop culture from unique perspectives not typically on display in late night television." Underlining that point, Comedy Central teases that the show will "feature a diverse panel of voices currently underrepresented in comedy and television." Long the "Senior Black Correspondent" on "The Daily Show," Wilmore won an Emmy for his work on "The Bernie Mac Show," which he co-created. He also co-created "The PJs" and has written for "In Living Color," "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" and more. He's also the executive producer and showrunner on ABC's newly ordered "Black-ish." As an actor, his credits include "Dinner with Schmucks," "Happy Endings" and "The Office. »

The Amazing Spider-man 2 – The Review

1 May 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Here’s the first official entry to “Summertime with the super heroes 2014″(Cap’s return last month would be considered Spring, one supposes). And it’s an old familiar masked face who got a major overhaul (re-boot, re-imagining, etc.) just two Summers ago. 2012′s The Amazing Spider-man proved to click with audiences, so the director and principal actors are back for number two (no bathroom jokes, please!). They’ve gotten the revamped origin story out-of-the-way, so it’s on to new challenges, and a new super villain. Well, things need to be ramped-up, so it’s three, count em’, three super villains from the classic comic book rogues’ gallery: Electro, the Rhino, and, returning to the big screen from the original Sam Raimi-directed trilogy, the Green Goblin. Will they triple the excitement factor from the first flick, or will they cancel out the charm factor, mainly being the romance of Peter and Gwen? »

Interview: Marlon Wayans Brings the Funny to ‘A Haunted House 2’

16 April 2014 2:54 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Marlon Wayans will do practically anything for a laugh, and that is to the audience’s advantage in the sequel to last year’s smash comedy, “A Haunted House 2.” Joining him for the second go around is hot comic Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias and the reliable Affion Crockett, who is reprising his role as Cousin Ray Ray.

A Haunted House 2’ was given the green light after the success of last year’s “A Haunted House.” Marlon Wayans – with his writing partner Rick Alvarez – has formulated another spoof regarding the latest horror films, in this case mostly from last year’s “The Conjuring.” Wayans, who is also part of the Wayans Brothers comedy family, leaves no hilarious stone unturned as he sends up all of the weird elements of that film, and his on-screen supporting cast brings great improvisation and comic timing to the mix.

New International Trailer for Annie Starring Quvenzhané Wallis, Cameron Diaz, and Jamie Foxx

14 April 2014 10:16 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sony Pictures has released a new trailer for director Will Gluck’s new musical adaptation Annie.  The film stars Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) in the title role as a young, happy, street-tough foster kid living with the mean Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz) who is taken in by New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) in a thinly veiled campaign move.  This international trailer has a few bits of new footage that show Foxx playing things a bit more comedic and loose than some of his past few roles, with one scene in particular evoking his In Living Color days.  I’m still not crazy about the overly auto-tuned nature of the songs, but Gluck’s last two films (Easy A and Friends with Benefits) have been pleasantly surprising, so I’m interested to see how the full feature plays out. Hit the jump to watch the new Annie trailer. »

'Loiter Squad' Returns For A 3rd Season Next Month On Adult Swim. Are You Watching?

7 April 2014 3:51 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

While you're hoping for a return of In Living Color, you might want to check out this sketch comedy series that airs on Sunday nights on the Adult Swim network, titled, Loiter Squad. The new season - its 3rd - of Loiter Squad premieres on Thursday, May 15 at midnight Et/Pt. Despite now going into its 3rd season, many have actually never heard of the series, based on the unscientific research I did (polling every one I know on and offline). I hadn't heard of it until it was entering its second season last year, and eventually did check out a few episodes, but wasn't hooked in. So I didn't hang around for too long. But maybe some of you are fans. The series is »

Aaron McGruder Finally Explains Why He Left 'The Boondocks'

28 March 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

So everyone was abuzz when it was revealed that Aaron McGruder would not be returning to the fourth season of The Boondocks when it returns to the air on Adult Swim on April 21st.  People who love the show are fearing the worst, but is all lost? The Walking Dead lost co-creator Frank Darabont after the first season and it's held up very well. Then again, remember In Living Color and how it went straight into the toilet after the Wayans left? But the question remains, why did McGruder decide the leave the show? There's been all kinds of speculation and theories, but finally McGruder himself has addressed the issue of his leaving on his Facebook page, which one could »
