Big Hero 6 is getting ready to soar into theaters this Friday, and Wamg can’t wait! Recently, we sat down with Tj Miller (voice of Fred) and Damon Wayans Jr.(voice of Wasabi) in a small roundtable at Disney Animation Studios to talk about their experience working on the Disney Film, lending their comedic skills to their characters, and giraffes. Check it out below!
From Walt Disney Animation Studios, the team behind “Frozen” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” comes “Big Hero 6,” an action-packed comedy-adventure about the special bond that develops between Baymax (voice of Scott Adsit), a plus-sized inflatable robot, and prodigy Hiro Hamada (voice of Ryan Potter). When a devastating event befalls the city of San Fransokyo and catapults Hiro into the midst of danger, he turns to Baymax and his close friends adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago (voice of Jamie Chung), neatnik Wasabi (voice of Damon Wayans Jr. »

People don’t normally associate the name Nina Dobrev with comedy. The breakout starlet of the hit CW series The Vampire Diaries is more firmly rooted in drama, but she seems eager to spread her talents around. And so she’ll stretch her funny bone alongside funny men Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. in Let’s Be Cops, which opens in UK cinemas on August 27.
The film follows a pair of hapless friends in Los Angeles, who masquerade as police officers to reap the benefits and prestige of wearing the badge. We were lucky enough to chat with Nina about a variety of things including her role in the film, working with awesomely funny people, Twitter, and buddy cop movies (her answer may surprise you).
So I mentioned on Twitter that I’d be talking to you and I got a slew of responses from your 4 million followers that were like, »

If you’re in love with New Girl‘s dynamic duo, Damon Wayans, Jr. and Jake Johnson, you’re about to love them even more. VH1 recently sat down with the bromantic stars of Let’s Be Cops to learn about hilarious past jobs they’ve had (yes, Jake was in a 2007 tampon commercial), how they work their moves to get the ladies, and what they’d be like as real life roomies (attention ladies: Damon is single And a neat freak!).
The two refer to themselves as “the odd couple” and clearly didn’t need any liquid courage (see video above) in order for their real life chemistry to resonate on screen. Happy Endings alum Damon was open to discussing what it’s like having a stranger’s balls in his face, while Jake didn’t shy away from answering why he always seems to bet getting these “slacker” roles. »

Chicago – When the assignment was to find a comedy team to take on impersonating police officers, funny men Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. – of the TV series “New Girl” – fit the uniforms perfectly for the new film, “Let’s Be Cops.” Add in the always hilarious Rob Riggle, and let the games begin.
Riggle is a well known comic character presence on “The Daily Show” and films like “The Hangover,” “21 Jump Street,” “Big Miracle” and the upcoming “Dumb and Dumber To.” Riggle is also famous for having served in the Marines and Marine Reserves for a total of 23 years – retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel – and began his comedy career after his first military stint.

Once again, we have the fantastic, the indomitable, the flying-fingered Jeri Jacqui! on the transcripts!
Some good stuff from yesterday. Since I was on the Maze Runner set (report here), I've read the book and have been itching to see what Wes Ball made of it. They showed it to some fans earlier in the week and it got some good twitter buzz.
Let's check out what Fox offered yesterday at Sdcc!
Wes Ball (director)
James Dashner (author)
Will Poulter - Gally
Kaya Scodelario - Teresa
Dylan O’Brien - Thomas
Ralph Garman (Mod): Please welcome director Wes Ball, author James Dashner, Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario and Dylan O’Brien. Dylan, as Thomas, an actor tends to want to use his environment etc. and you have none of those advantages with this character.
Dylan: Yes, there isn’t that much to go off of. Taking it in »
Nothing really surprises Lena Dunham. If you've seen Girls, you know she's seen, imagined, or tried nearly everything. But Justin Bieber's alleged choice of drugs on the wild night that landed him in jail? That little discovery inspired the actress to chime in on the pop star's misfortunes this week. Meanwhile, in an attempt to understand what has led Justin astray, Seth Meyers pinpointed the moment everything went downhill. In other can't-miss tweets, Ellen is cashing in on marijuana trends, and Kelly Osbourne had a pretty crappy time at Barney's. Keep reading to Lol at all that and more! The only crazy part of Justin Bieber arrest is that he was "popping anti-depressants all day." Anti-depressants take like 3 months to work. — Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) January 23, 2014 Lena, don't you know Justin is planning for his future? I blame Kate McKinnon #Bieber http://t.co/wSDCqkf3wE — Seth Meyers (@sethmeyers) January »

Apparently Bill Condon almost made it a couple of years ago, but I guess that's fallen through since here we are. I was really looking forward to Daniels making his interracial gay action movie, possibly to star Alex Pettyfer, but I'm not exactly surprised that producers aren't throwing money at that.
And not only do we have a director, but we have a trio of names that're rumored to be up to play the troubled, brilliant comedian. Eddie Murphy, who's been considered for the role for as long as they've been thinking about making the movie really, is still in the mix, although if they want to focus on Pryor's life in his 20s and »
