TV Review: ‘Weird Loners’

22 hours ago | 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. »

Billy Crystal Finally Returns to Series Television After 30 Years—What Made Him Do It?

23 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Billy Crystal is baaack! The legendary funnyman stars alongside Josh Gad in The Comedians, FX's new Curb Your Enthusiasm-like series premiering on April 9. The two play themselves (at least versions of themselves) as they go about trying to put together a new sketch comedy show. Crystal appeared for one season of Saturday Night Live in the mid-'80s. Before that, he was one of the breakout stars of Soap, a parody of daytime soap operas that ran on ABC from 1977-1981. Crystal admitted he's turned down many sitcom and talk show offers over the last three decades. More recently, he said, "It's the grandfather who can't work the cellphone."

Will Billy Crystal and Josh Gad's 'The Comedians' take down 'Modern Family' at the Emmys?'

19 March 2015 9:15 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"The Comedians" is a hilarious expose of the TV biz. Billy Crystal and Josh Gad are brilliant. Finally, a show that could take down "Modern Family" at the Emmys! -Break- This FX program premiering on April 9 before "Louie" is the funniest new show I have seen in recent years. And it has special appeal to TV academy members of all ages since it's about a veteran comedy legend and a rising young star battling over their own TV variety series. It reminds me of three-time Best Comedy Series champ "30 Rock" if crossed with "The Larry Sanders Show" and maybe "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (appropriate since Larry Charles has directed several episodes of that Larry David laffer and this new show). Those programs all made fun of television and the entertainment industry, just like other Emmy favorites like "The Dick Van Dyke Show," "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," "Murphy Brown,..."' »

Josh Gad: "Excited" to Know Frozen Sequel is Definitely Happening

16 March 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We can't wait to see what's in store for the Frozen sequel. And neither can Josh Gad, who plays the hilarious snowman Olaf. "I'm just excited that they announced it," Gad told me at the South by Southwest premiere of The Comedians, his hysterical new Curb your Enthusiasm-esque FX series with Billy Crystal. "I have complete faith in the creative team and I'm excited to hear that it's happening at this point." Disney announced via Twitter last week that "@DisneyAnimation [is] developing #Frozen2 with Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee." No release date or productions details have been released. It was also just announced that Gad will play LeFou in a live-action »

'Ash Vs. Evil Dead' Lands 'Xena' Star Lucy Lawless

9 March 2015 3:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Starz has announced today that Lucy Lawless (Salem, Spartacus) will play the role of Ruby in the Starz original series Ash Vs. Evil Dead. The series is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and is set to film on location in New Zealand this spring and premiere on Starz in late 2015. Ruby is a mysterious figure who is myopic in her quest to hunt down the source of the recent Evil outbreaks. The only problem: she believes that Ash (Bruce Campbell) is the cause of it all.

The casting reteams Lawless with executive producers Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert whom she worked with when she starred in the television series' Xena: Warrior Princess and Spartacus as well as appearing in their feature films including Raimi's Spider-Man and Tapert's Boogeyman. Additional television credits include Salem, Parks and Recreation, Top of the Lake, Flight of the Conchords, »

Interview: Desiree Akhaven talks 'Appropriate Behaviour'

6 March 2015 1:36 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

"I love Curb Your Enthusiasm! I want to feel just as entitled as any rich, middle aged white man; that's how entitled I want my protagonist to be." Desiree Akhaven does not consider herself to be a political filmmaker. In her debut feature Appropriate Behaviour (2014), which she wrote and directed, she stars as Shirin, a bisexual Iranian-American, going through a break-up with her long- term girlfriend, Maxine. The film premiered at Sundance in 2014, followed by a successful festival run and a critical reception that signals a cult film in the making. Shirin is a typical hip twenty-something, roaming the gaping chasm between adolescence and maturity in Brooklyn's creative bubble, equally insecure, self-assured, self-absorbed, and dealing with heartbreak.

Fish in the Dark review: Larry David hits sublime comic heights

5 March 2015 7:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Cort Theatre, New York

Larry David’s hugely anticipated play doesn’t scale the heights of the best of Curb Your Enthusiasm, but there are still some great gags about family, sex and death

Where does sex intersect with death? Wherever the meeting point is, you’ll probably find Larry David there, smiling.

In Fish in the Dark, the comedian’s hugely anticipated Broadway debut which opened on Thursday at the Cort Theatre after a record-breaking pre-sale, David plays what we can assume is another version of his real self. To that end, our David stand-in, a character named Norman Drexel, poses such questions as: should I masturbate immediately after finding out that my father might be dying? Is it acceptable to squeeze a woman’s breasts if you only have hours left to live?

Theater Review: Fish in the Dark Is a New Domain for Larry David

5 March 2015 7:00 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In the first episode of season five of Curb Your Enthusiasm, the character of Larry David, played by Larry David, is reduced to the cosmic indignity of buying tickets for High Holiday services from a scalper. I mention this not only because you’ll probably have to do the same if you want to see Fish in the Dark, David’s all-but-sold-out Broadway comedy, but also because it encapsulates some of what you’ll find if you succeed. In it, Larry David plays another Larry David–like character, this one named Norman Drexel, an irascible weasel forced by absurd situations into ethically questionable behavior involving a lot of Jews. It’s well built, occasionally thoughtful, and consistently very funny if not transcendently so. In short: You’ll laugh, you’ll cry — well, you’ll cry when the Visa bill comes.Final payments are in fact the theme. As the story »

'Fish in the Dark': Theater Review

5 March 2015 6:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

No Neil Simon character ever exclaimed, "You f***ed my mother?!" But in countless other ways, Larry David's first venture into Broadway playwriting, Fish in the Dark, is a spirited throwback to that once hugely popular gagmeister's patented specialty: classic boulevard comedy molded to fit the American Jewish family. It's also pure sitcom, energized by David's customary serrated edges and willfully abrasive characters. While the writer-star is playing a minor variation on the persona he honed over eight seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm — and before that, via his alter ego George Costanza on nine seasons of Seinfeld — that

Elisabeth Shue & Jason Schwartzman to Guest Star on Starz’s ‘Blunt Talk’

5 March 2015 12:33 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Elisabeth Shue and Jason Schwartzman are set to guest star on Starz’s upcoming comedy, “Blunt Talk,” the cabler announced Thursday.

The Patrick Stewart-starrer, centers around Walter Blunt (Stewart), a Brit who’s intent on taking over American cable news with his nightly cable news show, aptly titled “Blunt Talk.” Besieged by his network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, ex-wives and children, Blunt’s only support is the alcoholic manservant (Adrian Scarborough) he transplanted from the UK to join him in Los Angeles.

Shue and Schwartzman will both appear as possible guests on Blunt’s (Patrick Stewart) show.

Other guest stars for Season 1 include musician and actor Moby, Sharon Lawrence (“Rizzoli & Isles,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm”), Trace Lysette (“Transparent”), Golden Brooks (“Girlfriends”), Windell D. Middlebrooks (“Body Of Proof,” “Scrubs”) and Steve Valentine (“Anger Management”).

Alongside Stewart, Jacki Weaver (“Silver Linings Playbook”) plays Rosalie, Blunt’s tough and motherly producer-manager; Dolly Wells (“Doll & Em, »

How Larry David's Fish in the Dark is already a Broadway smash

27 February 2015 8:12 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

With Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm still commanding an army of fans, it is no surprise that ticket sales for David’s Broadway debut are breaking records

It is Larry David’s world, and we are just living in it.

Seriously, with Seinfeld considered the best TV comedy series of all time and Curb Your Enthusiasm fans still hoping for a ninth season (though it ended in 2011), David has shaped our approach and response to scripted comedy – at least in terms of television and movies (like his lost film Sour Grapes). However, his next venture is a far cry from his turn as creator, head writer and star of those two legendary sitcoms.

I Was on Law and Order: Svu: This Is My Story

25 February 2015 11:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's not every day one gets a call about being in TV's longest-running drama, Law and Order: Svu, but when that call comes, you answer. Especially when that means you'll be shouting things you'd never imagine saying at Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross and Curb Your Enthusiasm Mvp Susie Essman in the freezing cold outside a luxurious New York City townhouse. I answered the call and mounted my first "public performance" since elementary school, playing the far-reaching role of "Reporter No. 1." To be honest, I rehearsed my two lines for basically a week. I have never related to The Comeback and this scene more in my entire life. I practiced hitting words differently, saying »

Law and Order: Svu Takes On Casey Kasem With Marcia Cross and Big Twists and Turns

25 February 2015 6:30 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Marcia Cross is back on TV and of course there's a twist. It is Law & Order: Svu, after all. The Emmy nominee is making her big comeback with her first role since Desperate Housewives ended in 2012 starring opposite the original Man From U.N.C.L.E. Robert Vaughn and Curb Your Enthusiasm Mvp Susie Essman in an episode ripped from the headlines. That's right, Svu is taking on the Casey Kasem case that gripped the public. "Yeah, I've been sort of home with the kids. I felt like…It was time to get out of the house, I heard it was a great show. I don't watch much television, so it wasn't something I knew about. I love Mariska. We're sort of around the same age, so I've watched her »

FX's 'The Comedians' Trailer with Billy Crystal & Josh Gad

16 February 2015 6:22 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

FX has released a new trailer for their upcoming comedy series The Comedians, which reveals that series stars Billy Crystal and Josh Gad are essentially playing fictionalized versions of themselves. When the show was first announced back in March, it wasn't explicitly stated that both actors would be taking on various aspects of their personal lives, but that point is made clear in this trailer, when Josh Gad answers his cell phone with the greeting "Go for Gad." The footage also describes the show as "An FX Original Comedy about an FX Original Comedy."

In The Comedians, Billy Crystal plays a comedy legend who is reluctantly paired with Josh Gad, an edgier up-and-coming star, in an unfiltered, behind-the-scenes look at a fictional late night sketch comedy show where egos and generations collide. Stephnie Weir stars as "Kristen Laybourne," the anxiety-ridden producer behind The Billy & Josh Show who frequently finds herself »
