Those familiar with the off-kilter comedic duo behind the Danish TV series Klown (or Klovn as it is known in Denmark) — which spurned one of the most hilarious and inappropriate feature films of recent years — will know exactly what type of humor to expect from their sequel Klovn Forever. Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen star essentially as parodies of themselves in this Curb Your Enthusiasm-style comedy, combining mundane issues from their personal lives with some extremely outlandish situations. They push the boundaries of what is considered appropriate with their off kilter brand of humor, falling into categories that are intentionally offensive — such as misogyny and even racism. But therein lies the appeal: in these playful antics, here considered nonchalant, do we as an audience find humor in how outrageous and disrespectful they can be.

Read More: Canoeing In Texas With the Hilarious Cast of the Danish Comedy 'Klown' Drafthouse Films has announced it will release "Klown Forever," the sequel to the first "Klown" movie and the Danish sitcom from which it was inspired, on VOD and in theaters in 2016. Drafthouse previously released both the first film and the television series in its entirety in 2012, and the distributor has plans for a limited theatrical release, along with a release on various VOD platforms, for the sequel. The "Klown" franchise is an irreverent comedy in the vein of Sacha Baron Cohen from Danish duo Casper Christiansen and Frank Hvam. The sequel has been described "as though Lars von Trier were directing an especially mortifying episode of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm,'" and it relocates the duo to Los Angeles, where they encounter Hollywood celebs like Isla Fisher, Adam Levine and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Don't miss what Drafthouse calls "a. »

HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" has one of the most unique release schedules of any series, with creator and star Larry David not committed to a specific schedule. As a result, he can essentially deliver a new season whenever he pleases.
It has been four years since the most recent season, the eighth, hit screens. Now though it seems that David is finally ready to return for more as reportedly show scribe Jeff Schaffer recently met with Larry David and that talk of both a new season and a movie were discussed.
That report comes from sports radio DJ Chris Law through his Twitter feed. It follows on from comments last month by HBO president Michael Lombardo at the TCA Summer Press Tour where he revealed that David had teased him about a new season.
When might we dee either of these things if they were to go ahead? David »

When most shows are renewed, fans can normally expect to see them back at the same time the next year. HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, however, is not most shows, since series creator and star Larry David has a unique deal with the cable network, that essentially allows him to deliver a new season whenever he pleases. The show hasn't aired new episodes since Season 8 back in 2011, but it seems that Larry David is getting ready for Season 9.
Sports radio DJ Chris Law revealed on his Twitter account last week that Curb Your Enthusiasm writer Jeff Schaffer recently met with Larry David, where both a new season and a movie were discussed. Last month, during the TCA Summer Press Tour, HBO president Michael Lombardo revealed that he recently ran into Larry David over the summer at a Broadway premiere, where he teased a new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

At 72 years old, legendary director Martin Scorsese is still churning out hits, with his last film, The Wolf of Wall Street, earning over $392 million worldwide and earning five Oscar nominations, including Best Picture. The filmmaker recently wrapped production on his next film, Silence, starring Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield and Ken Watanabe, which hits theaters next year. Fans can see him in front of the camera in the new thriller Campus Code, which is currently available through Digital HD and VOD platforms such as Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Vimeo, Vudu, and Xfinity as well as On Demand with Charter, DirecTV, Verizon and Vubiquity. Today we have an exclusive clip that helps set up this unique plot, while showcasing Martin Scorsese's cameo.

Don't get too excited, but there's a chance a Curb Your Enthusiasm movie could be on its way, with rumours currently focussing on a potential ninth series and a movie to go with it.
It comes via a circuitous route - a sports radio DJ knows a friend of Larry David who had dinner with him recently - but it seems reasonably legitimate (as far as these things go).

The last season of the much-loved sitcom came out in 2011, with the proviso with studio HBO being that David could come back for more episodes should he be "creatively motivated" to do so.
It seems he's so "creatively motivated" that he wants to go to the big screen, which makes you wonder: what »
It’s been four years since the last episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm aired and the world has been a much duller place since then. Larry David created the show with the idea of portraying real life situations with fictionalised versions of the cast who are ultimately playing themselves. However, just when you think things can’t get any worse, they do.
Whether you think Larry David is funny or not, it’s difficult not to appreciate his comedic genius as well as his ability at showing how easy it is for people to reveal their true colours. But ultimately, he teaches you that you need to accept people for who they are, just as Jeff accepts Susie’s explicit and crude language on a daily basis.
Despite the show being improvised, it’s probably one of the most quotable shows to ever have graced our screens. So here they are, »

Jason Alexander has joined the cast of Rob Lowe‘s new Fox sitcom “The Grinder.” Lowe announced the news via his official Twitter account, saying, “TV legend Jason Alexander will play the writer/creator of “The Grinder,” the egomaniac and ersatz tough-guy Cliff Beamis.

Jason Alexander, best remembered for starring in a little-known sitcom called Seinfeld, has been cast as Cliff Beamis, the writer/creator of The Grinder‘s titular show-within-a-show in which Lowe’s character starred for eight seasons.
The news was broken late Tuesday night by Lowe on Twitter, following the show’s panel at PaleyFest in Los Angeles:
Empire fans, get ready to meet more of Cookie’s family. Vivica A. Fox (Kill Bill) is guest starring in Season 2 of the hit Fox drama as the older sister of Taraji P. Henson’s fan-favorite character. According to EW.com, which first reported the casting news, there are no details regarding what brings Cookie’s older sibling to town. In Season 1 of Empire, we met Cookie’s sister Carol, and as the show’s executive producer Ilene Chaiken tells EW, “Cookie’s other family members are troublesome to say the least,” which means that fans should be expecting more drama between the two sisters and less hugs. Fox’s past TV credits include Curb Your Enthusiasm, Raising Hope, and Alias. She is just one of many high profile guest stars Empire has lined up for Season 2, joining a guest cast that already includes Chris Rock, Marisa Tomei, Kelly Rowland, »

Start with the title: Clown Car! may sound like the movie someone will inevitably make about the 2016 presidential campaign, but how about evoking those great Seventies wacky-journey films like Death Race 2000, Vanishing Point or Smokey and the Bandit?
When I raised the question on Twitter, suggestions included All the President's Wanna-Bes, Every Which Way But Left, Cannonball Rug, A Kochwork Orange and the subtly appropriate Hair.
All excellent ideas, and we may have to put the movie name to a separate vote. Right now, though, the more pressing question is »
Why does BoJack Horseman, titular character of the Netflix originals cartoon comedy series, have to be a horse? This question plays on my mind every time I watch the show.
In the first series we meet BoJack as he’s hit rock bottom: he’s a depressed has-been actor, a self-loathing alcoholic incapable of a real relationship. His only comfort in life is watching re-runs of himself in Horsin’ Around, a bargain basement 1980s sitcom along the lines of Full House.

It's easy to imagine that, 15 years from now, television audiences will take for granted the existence of groundbreaking series like Orange Is the New Black and Transparent. But it's impossible to look at the currently lush television landscape without acknowledging the debt that most popular shows owe to HBO at the turn of the new millennium.
While network television continued raking in the advertising dollars with surefire bets and lowest-common denominators, the premium cable channel was kickstarting its own quiet revolution, finding success in a variety of genres from pop-cultural »
