Netflix’s ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ Cast by the Numbers

17 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Even though news surfaced that the entire cast of Wet Hot American Summer was set to return for Netflix’s original TV series, it wasn’t officially confirmed by the streaming network until it released a 50-second teaser touting most of the original stars’ names.

The returning cast includes: Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, and Michael Showalter.

While the teaser didn’t offer much outside of the cast names and an official synopsis, which states it will take place on the first day of Camp Firewood’s most famous summer, it did remind us of the star-studded power that will soon be reuniting for eight episodes.

Ahead of the first trailer on Thursday, Universal Pictures and Fuzzy Door Productions have unveiled the first teaser poster for their summer blockbuster comedy Ted 2, which you can see it in all its fuzzy glory below.

Usual MacFarlane writing partners Wellesley Wild and Alec Sulkin are co-writers once again.

Mark Wahlberg (The Gambler) reprises his role of John Bennett, Ted’s Thunder Buddy and Bff, while Jessica Barth (Family Guy) returns as Ted’s girfriend Tami-Lyn, as does Patrick Warburton (Rules of Engagement) as John’s co-worker Guy and Sam J. Jones (Flash Gordon) as “Sam Jones”.

'Time' examines the political message of 'Parks and Recreation'

22 January 2015 11:11 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Parks and Recreation has entered its final season, leaving fans and critics wondering what it all means. Over at Time, James Poniewozik writes that the adventures of Pawnee's civil servants are really about "about the importance of community, the idea that people need each other, that when you help someone, you’re also helping to make yourself better." The last remnant of NBC's era of sitcom greatness is unquestionably a political show, but not in the same way as Aaron Sorkin's idealistic The West Wing or the Machiavellian drama of House of Cards. Instead, Poniewozik writes, the sitcom provides »

#TanSuit, Mars and John Boehner's Face: Twitter Reacts to the State of the Union Address

21 January 2015 4:45 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Gosh, what were State of the Unions like back in the dark days pre-Twitter? Lonely, probably. There were many things that arguably the shrillest corner of the Internet fixated upon Tuesday night during President Barack Obama's State of the Union address, and some clearly favorited talking points. Let's take a look, shall we? Early in the evening, the White House Twitter account had some fun, suggesting Obama was going to wear his tan suit, for which he was lambasted last year.

Other stars include Megan Mullally, Pauline Quirke, Mathew Baynton, Paterson Joseph and Joel Fry.

Mullally is Leanne, a white supremacist who takes Rhonda under her wing.

20 January 2015 11:47 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

He may have once been better known as a Brat Packer and movie star, but these days Rob Lowe has had more success on the small screen in the likes of The West Wing and, more recently, Parks And Recreation.

Minority Report TV pilot hires director Mark Mylod

19 January 2015 6:21 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Mark Mylod has been hired as the director of the Minority Report TV pilot.

According to Deadline, he was the first choice for the role after his work on ABC's Once Upon a Time and Showtime's The Affair.

The television series will be set 10 years after the events of Steven Spielberg's 2002 film starring Tom Cruise.

The film - inspired by the Philip K Dick short story - was based around a specialist police force that used psychics to locate and arrest murderers before crimes were committed.

The pilot will follow one of the three Precogs, who is struggling to lead a "normal" human life. However, when he meets a detective haunted by her past, he begins to see the purpose of his gift.

The West Wing's Kevin Falls is the showrunner for the project while Max Borenstein, Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank will act as executive producers. »

'West Wing' Cast Reunites for Big Block of Cheese Day

16 January 2015 5:39 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While it may not be the full-fledged reunion many fans were hoping for, several members of The West Wing reunited for a special video to promote the White House's second annual "Big Block of Cheese Day." For those not familiar with The West Wing, John Spencer's Leo McGarry often spoke about the actual White House tradition, which started in the year 1837 when President Andrew Jackson brought a 1,400-pound block of cheese into the main foyer at the White House, inviting thousands of citizens to carve off slabs of cheddar cheese and discuss the issues of the day. This actual tradition was revived last year by President Barack Obama, which will continue this year with the 2nd Annual Big Block of Cheese Day on January 21.

Watch: 'The West Wing' Cast Hilariously Plug The White House's Big Block of Cheese Day

16 January 2015 11:16 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ye, back in the days of yore (1999 to be exact) those who held the office of the President of the United States of America (the fictional one on "The West Wing") invited the wackadoos and weirdos of the country (that one's accurate) to discuss the issues of the day with the President and his staff. The real-life tradition began in 1837, when President Andrew Jackson had a 1,400 pound block of cheese hauled into the main foyer of the White House for an open house with thousands of citizens who wanted to discuss issues important to them, as well as nosh on the hunk. And ye, it was gouda. The event, theretofore titled "Big Block of Cheese Day," was first celebrated (and appropriately mocked) in "The West Wing" Season 1 episode "The Crackpots and These Women," where C.J. Cregg (Alison Janney) was forced to meet with UFO conspiracy theorists and environmentalists who »

Forever episode 13 review: Diamonds Are Forever

14 January 2015 2:42 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Forever finally gets around to a Jo-centric episode, but are we any the wiser about her character at the end of it?

This review contains spoilers.

1.13 Diamonds Are Forever

(Incidentally, this episode makes no allusions or references to the 1971 Bond movie of the same name, starring Sean Connery.)

It seems somewhat incredible that it has taken thirteen episodes to actually get a Jo-centric story, which is what Diamonds Are Forever sets out to provide. I’d be misleading you to say that I wasn’t disappointed about what it contained, which really didn’t do what one might reasonably expect. 

Given that Jo Martinez is the episode's focus, do we know anything more about her at the end than we did at the start? The shadow hanging over her regarding her husband’s death isn’t news, and during the proceedings she doesn’t progress significantly in dealing with it. »
