Funny Or Die Brings Cable-Style “Bundles” To Everyday Life In New Sketch

13 May 2015 2:34 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Funny or Die has a new video that cord-cutters and cord-nevers will likely appreciate. The comedy site, which boasts a YouTube channel of over 1.5 million subscribers and many more followers on its website, released a clip called “If Everything Was Bundled Like Cable,” starring David Koechner.

In the video, Koechner (known for his roles in Anchorman and The Office) plays an average American citizen who is bewildered by how he and his wife must pay for cable channels they don’t even watch. Koechner then finds out what it’s like in a world where bundles reign supreme. For example, an ice cream parlor refuses to sell Koechner individual scoops. Then his character is forced to pay $657 for all the spots in a parking lot, even though he only used one.

Funny or Die’s sketch, while comical, is also very poignant in its representation of the absurdity of cable companies’ bundling obsession. »

Kathryn Hahn on the most awe-inspiring comedian she's ever worked with

8 May 2015 1:34 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The D Train," out today, concerns a delusional small-town family man (Jack Black) who tries to wheedle the popular guy from his high school class (James Marsden) into attending their 20-year reunion. It's a shockingly grim movie dotted with comic moments, including one particularly tough confrontation between Black and his wife (Kathryn Hahn). We spoke with Hahn, a veteran of comedies like "Anchorman," "Step Brothers," and "Our Idiot Brother," about what it's like watching Jack Black's creepy character spiral in front of her. She also reflects on the most awe-inspiring comedian she's ever worked with. Can you guess?  »

Joss Whedon Loved Edgar Wright's 'Ant-Man' Script

21 April 2015 5:06 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Fanboys everywhere were shocked and more than a little disappointed when Marvel announced that writer/director Edgar Wright had left Ant-Man. After All, Wright had been working on the script, along with Joe Cornish, for a few years, and had even cast the film's lead actors.

Josh Whedon (do I really need to list his Marvel credits?) was one of the people fortunate enough to have read Wright's script, and has nothing but good things to say about it.

I thought the script was not only the best script that Marvel had ever had," said Whedon, "but the most Marvel script I’d read. I had no interest in Ant-Man. [Then] I read the script, and was like, Of course! This is so good! It reminded me of the books when I read them. Irreverent and funny and could make what was small large, and vice versa. I don’t know where things went wrong. »

‘The Big Short’ has a rather large cast of big name actors

21 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There’s nothing short about the list of big name actors in the cast for the upcoming movie by Anchorman helmer Adam McKay.

Deadline reported on Tuesday that Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, and Brad Pitt are set to join Melissa Leo and Marisa Tomei in McKay’s adaptation of Michael Lewis’ book, The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine. The book tells the story of the genius contrarian investors who, recognizing just how insane the housing bubble had become, figured out how to “short” the market prior to the financial collapse of 2008.

This is McKay’s first dive into large-scale drama after making a name for himself with comedy hits such as Anchorman, The Other Guys, and Step Brothers. He most recently worked with Marvel and Paul Rudd on the script for Ant-Man, which just released its second trailer, and is rumored to be on the shortlist »

21 April 2015 1:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Early reports linking Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Brad Pitt and Steve Carell to roles in The Big Short began in January this year, and were finally been verified this morning. Paramount Pictures, New Regency and Plan B Entertainment have ended negotiations with the star-studded ensemble who are all confirmed to appear in the adaptation of Michael Lewis’ best-selling book.

Anchorman helmer Adam McKay is directing this one to the big screen based on a script by Charles Randolph. Despite the dry subject matter, the injection of several A-list names hints at a production geared towards award-savvy audiences.
