NBC is planning to unveil some Parks & Recreation merchandise, according to The Hollywood Reporter. That includes a set of trading cards, motivational posters featuring Leslie Knope and a bunch of Ron Swanson merchandise. I guess NBC’s research said that I’m the only one who uses the moniker “dream man Ben Wyatt.’
Who needs astronaut Mike Dexter when there’s Ben Wyatt?
HBO’s rapture pilot The Leftovers just added one more to its cast. Deadline reports that Liv Tyler has joined the cast as a woman getting wedding jitters as the big day nears, which gets her noticed by the local mysterious cult.
I’m sure some of you are interested in the pictures of the new Big Brother house in The Hollywood Reporter. It looks good, but it’s not a major rebuild. Since the last season I enjoyed continues to be season six’s “Summer »

"Community" star Joel McHale is the latest in a long line of luminaries to ask, "What would you do for a Klondike bar?" and you'd better have a darn good answer, because you might be asked to prove it over the next few months.
McHale has partnered with Klondike for the What Would You Do for A Klondike Bar? Challenge, a summer-long contest featuring the comedian and several nostalgic celebrities of the '80s and '90s, in which fans can suggest acts that the celebrities will be required to carry out in pursuit of the fabled ice cream bar. The only catch? If your idea is chosen, you have to do the deed too. Luckily, there are prizes, bragging rights and potential viral video fame up for grabs in the process, if such things entice you. The first celebrity participant is Alfonso Ribeiro, star of "The Fresh Prince of »

There are some things that I manage to avoid on the Internet. I've never heard of this Grumpy Cat until today, but apparently it's a big thing, which seems absolutely ridiculous. What's even more ridiculous is the fact that Hollywood is going to take this stupidly popular Internet cat sensation and turn it into a family style comedy.
The movie will be based on a cat named Tardar Sauce, who's a scowling feline that became famous for appearing in memes. She won Meme of the Year at the 2013 Webby Awards. Ugh. Deadline also mentions a bunch of the cat's other achievements:
Grumpy Cat was named the most influential cat of 2012 by MSNBC, a most important Meme of 2012 by Mashable, and has appeared on such TV shows including Today, Good Morning America, CBS Evening News, Anderson Cooper Live, VH1 Morning Buzz and The Soup. In March, Grumpy Cat was deemed the »

Exclusive: More depressing news for humans who can’t get a Hollywood movie made. Grumpy Cat, the cranky-faced kitty voted Meme of the Year at the 2013 Webby Awards, has a shot at getting her famous sourpuss on the big screen. Broken Road’s Todd Garner and Sean Robins, and Grumpy Cat’s reps (manager Ben Lashes and rep Al Hassas) have teamed up to produce and assemble a package for a Garfield-like feature film with the famous frowning feline at the center. Here, Grumpy Cat (real name Tardar Sauce) will be given the power of speech. How much movie potential can a Grumpy Cat have? Well, she has been scratching at the door of fame in a big way. Among the indicators: Grumpy Cat was named the most influential cat of 2012 by MSNBC, a most important Meme of 2012 by Mashable, and has appeared on such TV shows including Today, Good Morning America, »

• Fresh off the news that Tom Cruise exited the long-gestating production of Man From U.N.C.L.E., it looks like Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) may take on the now-vacated starring role. The Guy Ritchie-directed Warner Bros. adaptation of the 1960s television show currently stars Armie Hammer (The Social Network) and Alicia Vikander (Anna Karenina). Besides his potentially career-changing turn in Man of Steel, Cavill is also attached to the still-delayed production of The Great Wall. [Variety]

Lesson of the day: Never wear makeup when interviewing Joel McHale. Learn from our mistakes, people! We chatted with The Soup host and Community star on the red carpet at NBC's upfront presentation in New York City and our stomachs still hurt from laughing. So. Darn. Hard. So what was McHale saying that had us crying off our mascara? Well, it had something to do with new Late Night host Seth Meyers and the word "boner." Oh, and don't worry, Community fans, we were able to stop laughing long enough to get McHale to discuss the sitcom's renewal...and possible movie! Community's Renewal: While NBC canceled many of their comedies, the cult favorite series is returning for a fifth season. »

Upfront event in NYC on April 22, where he revealed his sarcastic secrets.

Joel McHale says rumors he's gay are taken as a compliment. The "Community" star and host of "The Soup" gave an interview to Lgbt magazine The Advocate and spoke about hanging out in gay bars, getting naked on camera, and oral sex.
In the joke-filled Q&A -- because what other kind of Q&A would he know how to do? -- McHale criticizes men who get offended by rumors they might be homosexual. "It's flattering," he says. "I always find it really weird when guys flip out over someone thinking they might be gay. If a guy gets offended by that, there's something's wrong with him. I take it as a compliment."
When asked, McHale reveals a list of his man crushes, which include Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion. Comedy crushes are also discussed. When discussing "The Soup's" recurring segment, "Gay Shows," McHale brands Ru Paul "a »

He said: "They're not gonna call me. Look, I work on E!. I'm trying to host a celebrity roast of some sort.
"Look, I'm happy. I would be a seat-filler. I thought [2013 host Seth MacFarlane] was amazing, so I hope he does it next year." »
