Kevin James Teases Fake Spinoff 'Game of Thrones of Queens' on 'Letterman'

17 April 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

These days, Kevin James does most of his work in film  – starring in goofy comedies like Zookeeper and the upcoming Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2. But as he explained to David Letterman on Thursday's Late Show, he longs for the "routine" of the TV sitcom format he enjoyed on The King of Queens. In the above segment, he reveals his upcoming (fake) return to the small screen with Game of Thrones of Queens, a joke spin-off of the HBO fantasy series. 

"We've already started production," James says, cutting to a »

TV Review: ‘Weird Loners’

30 March 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If only “Weird Loners” were anywhere near as interesting as its title. Instead, this latest Fox comedy falls into that middle realm of nothing special, featuring a quartet of quirky characters, all in their mid-30s, each of whom remains single for his or her own reasons. Still, delaying marriage isn’t as shocking as it once was, just as these kinds of self-absorbed characters don’t exactly break fresh ground. Fox has enjoyed some recent successes — generating sampling of “The Last Man on Earth” — but there’s nothing here that can’t be seen executed significantly better (and every bit as timely) in any random “Seinfeld” rerun.

Indeed, after three episodes of the series, it’s still something of a struggle to come up with a clear description of it, other than to note that by the end of episode one, all four characters are living adjacent to each other in a Queens townhouse. »

Planes: Fire & Rescue Blu-Ray Review

17 February 2015 2:36 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Planes: Fire & Rescue, much like the Cars sequel, spins us into an entirely new world, and though the Cars franchise sequels haven’t been quite the blockbusters Pixar might have hoped for, this broader sequel theory has made them both far better films than simpler “add-on” efforts might have managed.

Dusty finds himself out of the racing game, and quickly joins with a crew of rescue vehicles who keep an eye on a vast forest in order to contain fires. Naturally, this isn’t something that sounds like a great time to Dusty at first, but he learns that there’s a lot more to life than being in the spotlight.

This all kicks off because Dusty continually pushes himself too far, damaging a part that can’t be replaced. In a fairly obvious maneuver, he ends up crashing, and causing a fire. This leads to the airport being shut down, »

Catching Up With … Leah Remini  You might know her from one of the most popular sitcoms of the last 20 years, The King of Queens, her reality shows, or her time as cohost of The Talk.

Digital releases seem to be the way to go for a few different video projects these days, and now Rob Benedict is following suit. The actor from the CW’s Supernatural series is releasing his short film The Sidekick on iTunes, Amazon, and Vimeo On Demand on February 3, 2015.

Written by Benedict and directed by Michael J.

Rob Benedict, Lizzy Caplan Superhero Short ‘The Sidekick’ Gets Digital Release

28 January 2015 1:03 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Superhero tales are the genre du jour, but a new short film offers a very different perspective on the caped trend. Star-studded short “The Sidekick” will debut on iTunes, Amazon and Vimeo-On-Demand beginning February 3, Variety has learned exclusively. The comedy will also make its streaming debut on Hulu in March.

The project, which stars Rob Benedict and Lizzy Caplan, centers around 40-year-old professional sidekick Max McCabe (Benedict), now past his prime and forced out of the fast-paced superhero world. When he is abruptly fired by his boss, the epic Captain Wonder (Ron Livingston), and replaced by a younger, quicker right-hand man, Kid Loco (Jason Ritter), Max has no choice but to somehow find a place for himself in the civilian world. With the help of his newfound friend (Caplan), Max finds the courage to re-evaluate his life and find a new purpose. Jordan Peele, Martin Starr, Sam McMurray, Ike Barinholtz, »

‘Weird Loners’ First Look: Meet Fox’s Newest Weirdos

16 January 2015 1:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox’s “Weird Loners” brings together a group of self-proclaimed weirdos — four single thirtysomethings who are unexpectedly thrust into one another’s lives and form an unlikely bond in a Queens, NY, townhouse. Variety has a first look at the new group shot of the cast ahead of the comedy’s March 31 debut.

Becki Newton’s Caryn is a cute, but high-strung dental hygienist whose romantic life, unfortunately, is dictated by the love-crazed, ultra-romantic 13-year-old barricaded inside the control room of her brain. Each time a handsome new man crosses her field of vision, infatuation and extreme over-eagerness take over, and she inevitably winds up back at square one — single and not getting any younger.

Zachary Knighton’s Stosh is handsome, charming and whip-smart. He’s a serial seducer who has never been able to maintain an intimate relationship with a woman for very long — a couple of hours, usually. »
