It’s team-up time for twin titans of comedy once again . Actually one of the stars of this new film was attempting this just a couple of months ago. The in-danger-of-over-saturation star Kevin Hart made an attempt to broaden his fan base by joining up with another rising comic star, Josh Gad, In the modest hit (couldn’t have cost that much) The Wedding Ringer. Well it certainly worked for Kevin’s comic predecessors Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, and Chris Tucker. But this time out he’s truly going for it, making a run for the comedy big leagues, by teaming with an established superstar of laugh-filled flicks, Will Ferrell (sure he’s had some duds, but when he scores, he scores big). And this new film takes some hot-button current topics, and gives them a spin that may remind you of certain Pryor and Murphy classics. So, let’s »

Mad Men isn’t known for its humor, but it has its moments of levity, and you might call some of the characters’ quirks amusing. Vulture asked past and present cast members who they think is the funniest Sterling Cooper employee at the show’s Black & Red Ball premiere at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles. Cara Buono, who played consultant Dr. Faye Miller, quickly answered, “John Slattery. He’s quick, and witty. He just makes you laugh. Every single time you look at him, you start laughing.” Bryan Batt (Salvatore Romano) called a tie: “Jon Hamm and John Slattery. The Johns.” Kiernan Shipka chose three: “Oh my gosh. Both Johns are actually so funny. And Vinnie K., Vincent Kartheiser, is hilarious. So all of them.” With no hesitation, Hamm replied, “Me!” and added, with a big smile, “I’m kidding. The answer is always Roger Sterling. That’s all I can say. »

File this one under: Big mistake...Huge! Ok, so we actually think this Mad Men star will be just fine, but still, John Slattery has to be kicking himself a wee bit for turning down a chance to star on the biggest breakout show of the year: Fox's Empire. It turns out that executive producer Danny Strong tried to get Slattery on the Fox show...and he turned that chance down. Strong guest starred on the AMC drama with Slattery before Empire came onto the scene, and Slattery reveals in an interview with The Daily Beast that Strong asked him to be on it. "That's Danny Strong who punches me in the balls!" Slattery says of Strong's Mad Men character. "That guy is on top of the »
As Mad Men's final episodes approach, it's natural to wonder where the show's performers might show up next. Elisabeth Moss is currently on Broadway, January Jones is on The Last Man on Earth, and John Slattery apparently could have been on Empire. Recall that Danny Strong, Empire's co-creator and executive producer, plays Roger Sterling's cousin-in-law Danny Siegel on Mad Men. Slattery tells The Daily Beast, "[Strong] actually asked me if I wanted to be on Empire, and I think I let that ship sail. I don't know who I would've played … some white dude." Please, Lord, don't let it be too late. We would all love to see John Slattery play some white dude on Empire. »

Warning: The following story contains spoilers about Season 3 of House of Cards. Proceed at your own risk.
With the exception of the tedious, suspense-deprived, Doug-centric premiere, I found Season 3’s obsession with foreign affairs, gay rights and campaign dramaturgy to be endlessly watchable. I welcomed all of the new blood, particularly Boardwalk Empire vet Paul Sparks as Frank’s quasi-biographer/man crush Thomas Yates, with open arms. And I was particularly engrossed »

As the saying goes, when one door closes, another opens. Following his reoccurring role as Ken Cosgrove on Mad Men, Aaron Staton will appear in a reoccurring role on Showtime’s Ray Donovan Season 3. According to Deadline Hollywood, Staton, who has also appeared in bit parts on The Good Wife and Person of Interest as well, will play Mr. Donellen, “a strict yet kind high school teacher with a tragedy in his past.” Little else is known about how Donellen will figure into the world of Liev Schreiber’s titular L.A. fixer, especially considering how things were left with Mickey (Jon Voight), the rest of Donovan’s friends and family, and the FBI at the end of season 2. [caption id="attachment_362604" align="alignright" width="351"] Image via Showtime[/caption] The casting of Staton is only the latest in a long line of casting news for the Showtime series.

“Mad Men,” the critically acclaimed television series that popularized everything from period dramas to pear-shaped figures, is coming to an end. To celebrate the launch of the series’ final seven episodes, AMC and Lionsgate TV hosted a high-fashion Black & Red Ball at downtown Los Angeles’ Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on Wednesday night that was only befitting the stylish show known for highballs, hemlines and hijinks in the 1960s advertising world.
“‘Mad Men’ has changed the lives of hundreds of men and women who created 92 hours; 92 successful one-hour works of art,” AMC president and g.m. Charlie Collier said before the screening of the first of the final episodes, as he called to the stage the writers, stars and many production department heads responsible for bringing creator Matthew Weiner’s series to the screen.
Weiner, who received a standing ovation upon taking the stage, opened his speech by joking that “people will stand for anything. »

Weiner has won nine Emmys—two for The Sopranos and seven for Mad Men—and he's known for being meticulous when it comes to his writing and spoilers. So what got under Hendricks' skin?

"I said, 'You can trust me to know when »
