Jen Krueger: Sitcom Love

8 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Pam Halpert (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

On the list of things I originally expected from Brooklyn Nine-Nine, emotional resonance isn’t to be found. With a former Saturday Night Live cast member as the lead, I figured the show would be goofy (in a good way) and peppered with cameos from comedians. While these expectations were met early in the first season, the thing I’ve come to like most about the show is the slowly developing romantic storyline between Jake (Andy Samberg) and Amy (Melissa Fumero). But as much as I’ve enjoyed the pining these characters both think is unrequited, I keep reminding myself not to get my hopes up too much about the future of this storyline since sitcom love rarely flourishes in an enjoyable way.

I’m not sure there’s a single narrative show on TV that doesn’t have at least one romantic storyline, but »

Interview: Jeff Garlin, Co-Directors Are ‘Finding Vivian Maier’

3 April 2014 12:29 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The story of a Chicago-based woman – who died in 2009 at age 83 – has become the subject of a remarkable new documentary. “Finding Vivian Maier” is a film about revelation, and was created by co-directors John Maloof and Charlie Siskel, with the support of Executive Producer and comedian Jeff Garlin.

The tale of Vivian Maier seems impossible. It began after her death with an auction of her storage locker, which contained negatives of her street photographer’s life – from the 1950s through the ‘90s. One of the directors of the film, John Maloof, stumbled onto her treasure by purchasing a box of these negatives. He then became her archivist, cataloging her photos, films, audio recordings and even material possessions, to reveal an artist of unique magnitude. “Finding Vivian Maier” is Maloof’s story, Vivian’s journey and the story of an artist’s life that easily could have been lost with her demise. »

How ‘True Detective’ Could Boost Matthew McConaughey’s Oscars Odds

19 February 2014 12:16 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy doesn’t have the best track record of honoring actors who simultaneously appear in both television and film. The “Last King of Scotland’s” Forest Whitaker won the 2007 Oscar around the same time as his supporting roles on “The Shield” and “ER.” Before that, you’d have to go back to 1998 to find a lead actor winner (Helen Hunt, for “As Good As It Gets”) who also headlined a hit TV series (“Mad About You”).

Matthew McConaughey, this year’s lead actor frontrunner, could end that streak if he wins for “Dallas Buyers Club,” since the Oscars coincide with his recent turn in “True Detective.” Of course, McConaughey isn’t a TV star — he’s a movie star moonlighting in an HBO mini-series, but “True Detective” caps three years of tantalizing performances in films like Richard Linklater’s “Bernie,” William Friedkin’s “Killer Joe,” and Steven Soderbergh’s “Magic Mike” where Matthew McConaughey, »

5 Auditions With Legendary Actors Who Didn’t Get A Legendary Role

14 February 2014 6:09 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

United Artists

In Hollywood, film stars don’t audition. It’s a fact. Scripts are written with the roles tailored for individual actors, and the financing of a film is no longer a question of how good the script is, but rather who is “attached” to star.  In other words, big names don’t roam the town with head shots, and they no longer fight to stand out in a cold reading and be the best amongst a mass of actors trying to make it big.

But that doesn’t mean that movie celebrities didn’t have to audition like anybody else to get where they are today. In fact, not only did they audition endless times for small roles to keep some change tingling in their pockets, they would often find themselves getting rejected. Yes, now it’s kind of hard to believe that De Niro and Brando got rejected for certain roles, »

Comedy Legend Sid Caesar Dies

12 February 2014 12:52 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Emmy-winning comedy legend Sid Caesar, best known for his weekly live TV broadcast Your Show of Shows in the '50s and such films as Grease and It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, has died. He was 91.

Emmy-winning comedy legend Sid Caesar, best known for his weekly live TV broadcast Your Show of Shows in the '50s and such films as Grease and It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, has died. He was 91.

Pics: Actors Who Almost Got the Part

Born September 8, 1922 in Yonkers, NY, Caesar pioneered sketch comedy with partner Imogene Coca on the 90-minute Your Show of Shows (with the help of comedy writers that eventually made names for themselves, including Mel Brooks, Neil Simon and Woody Allen), later renamed Caesar's Hour, and then with his own special, The Sid Caesar Show. The next 20 years of his career were unfortunately marred by alcoholism and pills, a "20-year »

Sid Caesar dies at age 91

12 February 2014 12:10 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Sid Caesar, at once one of the greatest improvisors and one of the most rigorous sketch-comedy artists in television history, has died at the age of 91. His friend Larry King revealed Caesar’s passing Wednesday on Twitter.

Caesar was a modest dynamo, a man who disappeared into his comedy as though it was his escape from reality. A New York-born nightclub performer, he helped to usher in the dawn of the TV revolution. His 90-minute Saturday night variety program, Your Show of Shows, premiered in 1950. The live broadcast became a hit that lasted four years and immediately morphed into Caesar’s Hour, »

Sid Caesar, Master of TV Comedy, Dies at 91

12 February 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sid Caesar, one of the first stars created by television via his weekly live comedy program “Your Show of Shows,” has died at 91. TV host Larry King announced the news on Twitter.

Caesar, partnered with Imogene Coca, is credited with breaking ripe comedic ground with the 90-minute live program: It didn’t rely on vaudeville or standup-inspired material but rather on long skits and sketches written by an impressive roster of comedy writers including Mel Brooks, Woody Allen, Neil Simon, Larry Gelbart, Lucille Kallen and Mel Tolkin.

Your Show of Shows” was “different from other programs of its time because its humor was aimed at truth,” Simon once observed. “Other television shows would present situations with farcical characters; we would put real-life people into identifiable situations.”

Following Caesar’s Camelot-days in the ’50s, however, he made a precipitous decline into alcoholism and barbiturates, a self-described “20 year blackout” from which Caesar »

Ken Marino to Co-Star With Casey Wilson in Marry Me

3 February 2014 11:26 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

We were already signed on to watch Marry Me, the new NBC single-cam from Happy Ending creator David Caspe, when we learned that Eastbound & Down actor Ken Marino has been cast across from Caspe's real-life fiancé Casey Wilson as the male half of the show's lead couple. So basically David Caspe is just hitting it out of the park, and that's not even factoring the repeated, inherently-flattering comparisons between Marry Me and Mad About You. »

Casey Wilson To Star In NBC Comedy Pilot ‘Marry Me’ From ‘Happy Endings’ Creator

28 January 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Happy Endings alumna Casey Wilson has been tapped as the female lead in Marry Me, NBC’s single-camera comedy pilot from Happy Endings creator/showrunner David Caspe, Sony TV and Jamie Tarses’ Fanfare.

Caspe, who wrote the script, exec produces the pilot with Gordon and Tarses, all under overall deals at Sony TV.  This marks Wilson’s second pilot this season.

NBC Picks Up Pilot From Happy Endings Creator

8 January 2014 2:15 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Happy Endings creator David Caspe has a new show lined up at NBC, the network announced today. Marry Me, a single-camera comedy about a newly engaged couple, has been given a pilot pickup. What could be a more-sure bet than an NBC single-camera comedy from someone whose previous work is usually referred to as "underappreciated"? The show is apparently in the vein of Mad About You, but given that Caspe recently got engaged to Casey Wilson, perhaps it will also be a little autobiographical. »

David Caspe’s Relationship Comedy ‘Marry Me’ Gets NBC Pilot Order

8 January 2014 1:13 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The single-camera half-hour from Happy Endings creator David Caspe already had one of the biggest commitments for a comedy project this season, a big pilot production commitment at NBC that included a full license fee and series penalty. Now the network has given the Sony TV project — which has Seth Gordon set to direct and executive produce and Jamie Tarses to executive produce — a formal pilot green light. Said to be in the vein of Mad About You, Marry Me centers on a young couple who get engaged, something they quickly realize is harder than it looks. Caspe, who wrote the script and exec producing, as well as fellow exec producers Gordon and Tarses, are all under overall deals at Sony TV. For the past three seasons, Caspe served as showrunner on ABC’s underrated comedy Happy Endings, which ended its run in May. Marry Me reunites him with Tarses, »
