From Big and Uncle Buck to Shutter Island and Rush Hour, here are 23 films that are getting the television treatment...

You can blame the huge success of Fargo for this. Hollywood, even before that, had been moving more and more to exploiting movie properties on the small screen. But since Fargo married up critical acclaim to a good audience? All bets are off.

Flashback to Vince Vaughn's Hot Early Days in Hollywood

24 September 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

With news that Vince Vaughn has been cast in True Detective season two, we're taking a look back at his early years as an actor. Vince kicked off his Hollywood career in the late '80s with small appearances on TV shows like 21 Jump Street and Doogie Howser, M.D., eventually hitting the big screen with a role in 1993's Rudy before breaking out in Swingers in 1996. Off screen, he made a series of handsome red carpet appearances in the late '90s, when he also briefly dated actress Joey Lauren Adams. By the early 2000s, he was everywhere thanks to Old School, Dodgeball, Anchorman, and Wedding Crashers. For a fun blast from the past, check out these pictures of a 20-something Vince Vaughn, both on screen and off. Source: Getty / SGranitz and Miramax »

Why Vince Vaughn Is Actually a Great Pick For True Detective

24 September 2014 1:53 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

When HBO confirmed this week that Vince Vaughn would be joining the cast of the second season of True Detective, the Internet's reaction was mixed, to say the least. Colin Farrell had already been confirmed as one of the detectives, and while Vaughn's name had been linked to the show already, some fans felt that the show wasn't the appropriate place for the king of Frat Pack comedy. However, you shouldn't discount Vaughn too quickly, as there are actually several reasons why he may be a perfect fit for the new season. Keep reading to see our breakdown of why Vince is a great pick. He's Not Playing Colin Farrell's Partner One of the biggest misconceptions about Vaughn's role in the new season is that he is playing one of the lead protagonists. Instead, Vaughn is playing Frank Semyon, a career criminal who is being described as "the central antagonist" on the show. »

The Vaughnaissance starts here! HBO has finally confirmed the news that everyone already knew - Vince Vaughn will star in the second season of True Detective.

'True Detective': Will the real Vince Vaughn step forward?

23 September 2014 2:40 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The McConaissance was already in full swing when Matthew McConaughey agreed to star in the first season of True Detective with Woody Harrelson. But HBO and show creator Nic Pizzolatto are gambling that the hard-boiled anthology can serve as a rejuvenation machine for other treading-water actors aching to break out of a rut. HBO officially confirmed today that Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn will star in season 2—but not as partners, a la Rust and Marty. Farrell is a cop, but Vaughn will play a “career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is »

'Problem Child' TV Show Happening with 'Hangover 2' Writer

16 September 2014 2:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Today's 90s nostalgia story finds the hit comedy Problem Child being adapted for TV by Scot Armstrong, the writer behind The Hangover Part II and Old School.

NBC is developing Problem Child as a single-camera sitcom. The comedy will be based on the original Problem Child released in 1990, starring John Ritter, Jack Warden, Amy Yasbeck, Michael Richards and Michael Oliver as the title character. Originally envisioned as an R rated romp, the final film was rated PG and took a more family friendly stance on the story of an adopted 7 year-old child, compared to Damien from The Omen, who can't keep himself out of trouble. The first film was a big hit, grossing $72 million on a $10 million budget.

Problem Child was followed by the 1991 sequel Problem Child 2 and continued on in the 1995 sequel Problem Child 3. There was also a short lived animated TV series that launched in 1993.

10 Hilarious Actors Who Dared To Bare for the Good of a Joke

Nudity on-screen is no new thing, obviously. Way back in 1934, Tarzan and His Mate engaged in a very lusty, full-on naked swim, which shocked Depression era audiences everywhere. But that’s the thing, nudity in movies is usually about sex. Not so when comedic actors do it. They use their un-yoga’d, un-tanned, non-waxed naked bodies as a tool for being funnier. Take Jason Segel in Finding Sarah Marshall. As his girlfriend dumped him, he stood a thousand percent nude — and limp – in his apartment (for what felt like hours), and we howled. When Frank the Tank (Will Ferrell) went streaking in Old School, his exposed full moon wasn’t about being hot, it was about being hilarious.

From Sarah Silverman going full-frontal in Take This Waltz to Kim Cattrall proving why her Porky’s gym teacher earned the name Lassie (here’s a hint: she howls… »

Interview: Comic Actor Matt Walsh Goes ‘Into the Storm’

7 August 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Matt Walsh has been more visible lately, and it has much to do with his approach to character roles, beginning as Mike McLintock on the HBO series “Veep” and currently in the new film “Into the Storm.” For a Chicago native who began doing comedy improvisation here, he is moving on up.

Matthew Paul Walsh was born in Chicago, and graduated from Hinsdale High School. After college at Northern Illinois University, he became enamored of the improv scene in Chicago in the early 1990s, and studied under the master instructor Del Close. While dividing time between the Annoyance Theater and the ImprovOlympics (iO) in the city, he helped to found the “Uptight Citizens Brigade” (Ucb), which also featured Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts and Matt Besser. The troupe got its own show on Comedy Central, and has opened Ucb theaters in New York and Los Angeles.

Vince Vaughn In Talks For True Detective Season 2

4 August 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Matthew McConaughey turned his career around in epic fashion, going from leading forgettable rom-coms to starring in a series of excellent dramas. His McConaissance was made complete this year with the one-two punch of an Oscar win for Dallas Buyers Club and an Emmy nomination for his lead role in HBO’s game-changing True Detective. One of the aspects of the latter series that was so widely admired was its success in handing McConaughey an extremely complex and fascinating character to work with.

Casting is currently under way for True Detective‘s second season, which is likely to give another actor a chance to showcase sizable dramatic chops. Colin Farrell has snagged one of the lead roles, and Taylor Kitsch is still in talks for another. Today, TV Line revealed that it has learned which actor may be gearing up for a McConaissance of his own by taking on another »

Vince Vaughn In Talks For 'True Detective' Season 2

4 August 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As "True Detective" season two comes together, the rumors have been flying back and forth. Last month we learned that Colin Farrell was in talks for one of the lead roles, with Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund up for key parts. But today, coming completely out of left field, comes news that would've left Rust Cohle blindsided. TVLine reports that Vince Vaughn —yes, the funnyman from "Wedding Crashers," "Swingers" and "Old School"— is in preliminary talks for a role in HBO's neo-noir drama. Now, before you say Wtf and Lolwut, you should note that Vaughn's recent movements behind the scenes makes this news not entirely surprising. While "Business Or Pleasure" –the kind of comedy you expect from Vaughn— is on the way, Vaughn has also wrapped on the crime drama "Term Life" co-starring Hailee Steinfeld. And at one point a year ago, he had been lining up several non-comedic projects including  the. »

Todd Philips Appears For Rare Screening Of Early Documentary ‘Hated: Gg Allin and the Murder Junkies’

30 June 2014 11:12 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s been approximately 11 years since the release of the infamous documentary about the arguable rock god Gg Allin, “Hated: Gg Allin and the Murder Junkies,” but that didn’t stop the Nitethawk in New York City from screening a rare print late last week to a sold out audience. To top it off, the director of the doc, Todd Phillips, known for such hits as “Old School,” “The Hangover,” and “Due Date,” to name a few, was present for a little Q&A. Phillips was only a junior at Nyu during filming, and it’s safe to say this was the start to a career in acidic comedic pieces revolving around deeply flawed figures. The primary difference between “Hated: Gg Allin and the Murder Junkies” and Phillips’ later work is the fact that this doc centered on an actual, real-life individual and the filmmaker has rarely done documentary films »

Trailer for The Skeleton Twins starring Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader

30 June 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fresh from its debut at Sundance, and subsequent showings on the festival circuit in the Us, the first trailer for The Skeleton Twins has arrived online, which you can view below…

The film stars Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues) and Bill Hader (Adventureland, Superbad) as the titular siblings, who after years of estrangement, are reunited after ten years, still facing up to the varied challenges of their respective lives. Directed by Craig Johnson (True Adolescents) the film has been garnered with mixed praise across the festivals, but the majority of critics have shared their love of Wiig and Hader’s performances in a much more dramatic setting. The Playlist in particular said that the film “proves to be a fine showcase for Wiig and Hader.”

Co-starring Luke Wilson (Old School) and Ty Burrell (Modern Family), we will have to wait until we can pass judgement over here in the UK, »

5 wildest movie house parties: Animal House, Old School, more

2 May 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

To mark the upcoming release of Bad Neighbours, we've decided to compile what we think are the wildest movie house parties of all time. Zac Efron and his frat buddies would be hard-pressed to beat some of these, although there's no doubt they'd down some booze and give it a good go.

Take a look at Digital Spy's cream of the crop below...

Animal House (1978)

This is where it all started, the house party to end (or inspire) all house parties. The toga party that featured in the 1978 classic Animal House has been recreated numerous times in both film and real life, proving just how awesome this bash really was. With an amazing performance of 'Shout' by Otis Day and the Knights and plenty of John Belushi, how could this not have made the list?

Weird Science (1985)

It's a Saturday night and you've got no plans. Oh, except the dream »
