Jenny Slate to Guest Star on Brooklyn Nine-Nine

1 hour ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Entertainment Weekly reports that Jenny Slate, Andy Samberg's former SNL colleague and star of summer indie hit Obvious Child, will appear on the season premiere of Brooklyn Nine-Nine airing September 28th. She'll play Bianca, a "street-smart mob mistress" who could be the clue to solving Jake's undercover case. Lest we forget, the last time Slate had a guest spot on a show co-created by Michael Schur (Parks and Rec) she introduced the world to Mona Lisa Saperstein, so we're pretty excited to see what sort of mayhem she brings with her this time. And, okay, a little nervous. Nervous and excited, we guess? »

11 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

When he first learned about the Marvel superhero flick Guardians of the GalaxyPeter Travers reflexively reached for his handy Scum Bucket. But now our trusted critic is eating his own words, saying the film "might be the most fun I've had so far this summer at any movie." 

The Rise of 'Guardians of the Galaxy's Rocket Raccoon

In his latest video review, Travers can barely hold back his giddiness when talking about Guardians, a surprisingly fun and hilarious adaptation of the comic franchise that he dubs "the orphan child of Marvel. »

Theater, Improv Backgrounds Help Build Emmy-Nominated Comedy Casts

14 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Crafting an ensemble cast that has chemistry and serves a series takes experience and skill to a degree, but it can entail a healthy dose of risk-taking and finger-crossing as well.

When Jeanne McCarthy and Nicole Abellera first began assembling the cast of HBO’s Emmy-nominated “Silicon Valley,” show creator Mike Judge already had an idea about the types of actors he wanted to see in his fictional tech startup.

“Mike really knows this world,” McCarthy says. “It was great because (he) knows what’s authentic. (But) a lot of it is instinct. We were lucky that we were putting an ensemble together that could be populated with a lot of the people we have known from the comedy world for many years.”

Silicon Valley” — along with other outstanding comedy series Emmy nominees like “The Big Bang Theory,” “Modern Family,” “Orange Is the New Black” and “Veep” — rely on the »

Vin Diesel Busts Out His Old Breakdancing Moves on Tonight Show (Video)

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

We knew Vin Diesel was a Katy Perry fan, but we didn't know he had the moves to match. Diesel was on The Tonight Show Tuesday, and he told Jimmy Fallon that one of his pre-fame odd jobs was … breakdancing. As might be expected, Fallon convinced the action star to bust out a move or two. Diesel has a starring role in the upcoming Marvel film, Guardians of the Galaxy, alongside Bradley Cooper, Zoë Saldana and Chris Pratt. His role is somewhat limited, though: He plays a talking tree named Groot, whose sole line in the film is, "I am Groot. »

Paramount apologises and withdraws Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles “9/11″ poster

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paramount Pictures has today apologised for a new poster promoting their new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, that accidentally made reference to the terrorist attacks on September 11.

The poster shows the four Turtles (Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo) jumping from the top of an exploding skyscraper, said to be from New York, above the Australian September 11 release date. In addition, the characters jumping from the building echoed some of the scenes from 9/11.

After receiving much criticism online, particularly on social media sites, Paramount has since withdraw the poster from its site, as well as Facebook and Twitter.

“Combining that image and date was a mistake,” Paramount Australia said. “We are deeply sorry to have used that artwork for the marketing materials promoting the September 11 opening in Australia….We intended no offence and have taken immediate action to discontinue its use.”

Chris Pratt: From Parks and Recreation to Guardians of the Galaxy

29 July 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

The main job Chris Pratt had when auditioning for Guardians of the Galaxy was convincing the film-makers that he could get into shape to play an intergalactic superhero. The 35-year-old star rose to prominence as the hilarious Andy Dwyer in the hit sitcom Parks and Recreation where his chubby frame reflected his easy-going character. But when I meet him in a London hotel he looks every inch the action hero, seated on a soft chair in the lotus position, his brown leather shoes discarded on the floor. »

What If Guardians of the Galaxy Were Cast Entirely With Parks and Recreaction Stars?

29 July 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This post originally ran on Feb. 6, 2013. Yesterday, it was announced that Chris Pratt had been cast as Star-Lord in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Which was great news, but it left us wondering, Why are they stopping there? If this super-team really plans on fighting for justice, it demands to be stocked with all of Pawnee's best civil servants from Parks and Recreation. To get a visual image of why this is clearly the right direction, click on to see Amy Poehler as Rocket Raccoon; Nick Offerman as Groot, the Walking Tree; Aubrey Plaza as Gamora (with new indomitable eye-rolling powers!); and Aziz Ansari as Drax the Destroyer (Treat yo'self ... to pain!). »

Rob Lowe's Shark Week Promo Is Ridiculously Amazing—Watch the Wild Clip!

29 July 2014 11:29 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

In the words of Rob Lowe: "If you like me and you like sharks, then you will probably like this"—and we're happy to confirm that the studly actor is indeed correct. The 2014 Shark Week promo has officially hit the web, and if you have yet to watch the wild clip, then prepare yourselves for the ridiculousness that is about to ensue. The video stars the erstwhile Parks and Recreation actor, who literally has nothing to do with Shark Week (or so we think), but still makes for a pretty handsome lifeguard as he rides atop two sharks while sporting a white tank top and red swim trunks. To add to the cheesiness factor, the clip plays out in slow motion and sees Lowe cruising through the ocean with »

Celebrities Who Are Smarter Than You Are

By Sarah M. Smith

Between senseless tweets and red carpet word vomit, stupid celebrity comments always seem to make headlines. While Hollywood loves a good laugh, it’s also home to its fair share of A-list egg heads. As if their looks and talent weren’t enough, now they have to throw in off-the-chart IQs, too?

Exhibit A: Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman is equally gifted off-camera. Despite getting into show biz at a young age, she’s found the time to master five languages by the age of 33. Oh, and Modern Family‘s Nolan Gould graduated high school at 13 — an age when the rest of us were still playing with Barbie dolls while practicing our times tables. From Mensa members to high school valedictorians, click through this collection of scholarly celebs whose intelligence will make you want to hit the books. In fact, maybe you’ll grow »

Watch Rob Lowe's delightfully bonkers Shark Week promo

28 July 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

You thought this guy was the King of Summer? Nope.

Clearly, only one man is truly awesome (and crazy) enough to trek across the ocean atop two great whites, nonchalantly tossing chum in the air as a hot mermaid hitches a ride by his side. That man’s name: Rob Lowe, erstwhile Parks and Rec star, once and future Lifetime luminary, and all-around swell guy. He isn’t appearing in any Discovery specials this year as part of the network’s annual Shark Week—but he is doing some splendidly ridiculous stuff in this exclusive promo.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Review: Marvel At Its Very Best

27 July 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Guardians of the Galaxy is one of those comic book properties that is kind of "out there." Like in way out there. As in way-out-in-outer-space out there. After carefully crafting a compelling cinematic universe, Marvel Studios took a gamble on the property, one that, on paper, could make for an incredible movie experience if done right. I've been a huge fan of the Marvel cosmic universe for decades, and Abnett and Lanning's run on the Guardians of the Galaxy is one of my favorite comic stories ever. But could it truly make for a decent film, or a long-term franchise? I'm ecstatic to report that Marvel has completely delivered. Guardians of the Galaxy is not only a good movie, it's one of the best of all of the Marvel Studios films, and is as good as, if not better than, The Avengers. Seriously.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Red Band Trailer Offers Raunchy Laughs

25 July 2014 6:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Honestly, why not? That’s the conclusion I’ve come to about Hot Tub Time Machine 2, Paramount’s unlikely sequel to the 2010 hit. After all, in the last few years, we sat through three Hangover movies, two awful Think Like A Man movies and there’s even a Horrible Bosses sequel on the way. So why not give Craig Robinson, Clark Duke and Rob Corddry another chance to earn our laughs in this sequel? Especially when the jokes seem as funny as they do in this new red band trailer.

Comic-Con is typically reserved for superheroes and geek properties, but Paramount saw fit to deliver this raunchy new preview for Hot Tub Time Machine 2 - and I’m glad they did. Though I was hesitant at first about a sequel to a movie with the sort of one-joke premise you come up with after a night of heavy drinking, »

Chris Pratt: 'My wife Anna Faris prefers fat me - she's a feeder'

25 July 2014 3:56 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt has told DS that his wife Anna Faris prefers his chunkier body to his new ripped physique, joking that she is "a feeder".

The Parks and Recreation favourite underwent an extraordinary physical transformation to play Peter Quill in the new Marvel blockbuster, but thinks the Scary Movie actress misses seeing him pig out.

"She likes abs, but she likes her fat husband better, because she gets to feed him," he told DS at the Guardians of the Galaxy European premiere in London last night (July 25).

"She's a feeder and she wants to keep me locked up in the bedroom all fat and eating Kentucky Fried Chicken."

Asked if he now feels like he's being objectified as a sexual object, Pratt jested: "That's the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me. It feels good."

The Jurassic World star also expressed confidence that he »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Review

Marvel Studios

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Uncross your fingers, stop rubbing that lucky rabbit’s foot, cease your prayers to the Dread One Dormammu: Marvel have knocked it out of the park again.

Possibly their most daring gamble so far has totally paid off in the form of Guardians Of The Galaxy, a gloriously ramshackle-yet-tightly structured space faring adventure that just so happens to star a talking raccoon, a big tree, and Andy Dwyer from Parks And Recreation as a believable action hero. The way things are paying off for the studio, you’d think they had the whole thing rigged.

They must be gaming the system a little bit, at least. This is a big summer blockbuster where half the cast are CGI aliens, the other half are slathered in multi-coloured makeup, the “heroes” are a band of outlaws who just broke out of prison, and the director is »
