Video: Broad City's Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson Promise the Season 4 Premiere Will Give You 'Douche Chills'

18 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Broad City is going back to the beginning in its upcoming fourth season, and stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson can barely contain their excitement.

The stars of Comedy Central’s cult comedy dropped by TVLine’s Comic-Con interview suite over the weekend and were positively euphoric when discussing the series’ Aug. 23 premiere, a long-delayed, Sliding Doors-esque half-hour that turns back the clock six years to reveal how their fictional character’s met. “We wrote it as the finale of the first season, but [exec producer] Amy Poehler said, ‘Don’t do it. It’s too early,'” Glazer revealed to me. »

Well, this is a surprise. Charlize Theron will reunite with her Million Ways to Die in the West co-star/director Seth MacFarlane for a guest starring role on his upcoming Fox sci-fi spoof series, The Orville.

Some of Hollywood’s top dogs including Danny Strong, Cary Fukunaga and Bruce Altman were out to celebrate the New York premiere of the crime drama “Ozark” Thursday night. The project is Jason Bateman second with Netflix, after the revival of comedy cult favorite “Arrested Development” in 2013.

Also starring Laura Linney, the show follows the Byrde family. Marty (Bateman), a Chicago financial advisor has been quietly laundering money for a drug cartel for years. After his partner runs afoul, the entire family is uprooted and arrives in a lazy resort town around the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri, where Marty promises to clean money for the drug lord.

“I was looking for something to challenge myself because I had a really good time directing ‘Bad Words’ and ‘The Family Fang,’” said Bateman, who also got behind the camera for several episodes. “This came along and the notion to executive produce, which »

Newswire: Comedy stars Tom Lennon, Tony Hale join latest film from noted funnyman Clint Eastwood

13 July 2017 9:19 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

There’s some odd stuff going on with the casting for Clint Eastwood’s The 15:17 To Paris, the director’s latest tale of stalwart, good-hearted American heroes doing right. Eastwood already made headlines earlier this week, when he announced that the story’s central figures—Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, and Spencer Stone, who helped stop a 2015 attack on a French train—would be appearing as themselves in the upcoming film. Now, for whatever reason, he’s surrounding the trio with a bunch of very talented sitcom stars.

Variety reports that Tony Hale, of Veep and Arrested Development fame, and Reno 911! and The Odd Couple’s Thomas Lennon have both signed on for the film, playing the gym teacher and principal at the school where Sadler, Skarlatos, and Stone grew up. The two funnymen join a cast that already includes The Office’s Jenna Fischer and Hale »

TV Review: Netflix’s ‘Ozark,’ Starring Jason Bateman and Laura Linney

12 July 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Playing Michael Bluth was a lot harder than it looked. As the lead of “Arrested Development,” Jason Bateman had to be a despicable straight man with delusions of his own goodness and sympathetic, as the only character capable of feeling pain in a family of narcissists. Bateman rose admirably to the task, providing a grounded contrast for the show’s array of weirdos. But outside of that show’s context, his style has seemed either too funny or not funny enough. “The Switch,” in which Bateman plays a jealous ex-boyfriend who switches out donor sperm with his own modest emission, plays at the razor’s edge of comedy and tragedy — and ineptly uses a montage to escape its own premise, while Bateman’s character challenges the audience to feel empathy for him.

Ozark Season 1 Review

7 July 2017 10:37 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Imagine Arrested Development and Breaking Bad having a chance meeting in a bar. It’s getting late and the two shows are bored, lonely and drunk. They maintain eye contact for a little longer than necessary and, though they know they’re not right for one another, one thing leads to another. The next morning they’re awkwardly stumbling out of a hotel room muttering goodbyes and desperately hoping the other used birth control. Nine months later, Ozark appears.

The show is the creation of Bill Dubuque, previously responsible for terrible Robert Downey Jr. comedy The Judge and Ben Affleck’s iffy The Accountant. But, if Ozark is anything to go by, his star is on the rise (this should give Nightwing fans something to feel positive about, as Dubuque is attached to write the screenplay for the upcoming spinoff).

Watch: Tony Hale is Rejected For Shampoo in this Herbal Essences Commercial

7 July 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Arrested Development” may have played with literal humor, but one of the show’s stars had experience with more innuendo-based comedy prior to the series. Before Tony Hale’s turn as the beloved Buster Bluth and the one-liner slinging Gary Walsh in “Veep,” he was acting in a commercial with a message that was hard to miss. Seen in the clip below as the partner of a woman who has found something that can satisfy her a bit better, Hale’s comedic timing still finds a way to shine. Check out Hale being taken aback (just like us) by a woman’s love for her shampoo in this old Herbal Essences commercial. Check out Backstage’s commercial audition listings! »
