Are You Here – The Review

7 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Confession time. I really wanted to love this movie. I mean, I really, really, really did. Sadly, not everything we want in life comes true. On the other hand, I’m an optimist and try to remain open to compromise. So, while I did not hate the film by any means, I came away only kind of liking Are You Here.

Matthew Weiner makes his feature film debut as a writer and director with Are You Here. For those of you in the know, that alone is quite an exciting idea. For those of you who watch too much reality TV and not enough of the good stuff, Matthew Weiner is known for writing substantially on the AMC series Mad Men and the HBO series The Sopranos. Now that I have your attention, I’m afraid things about about to get real, as in real disappointing.

Are You Here had a lot of promise. »

Nick Offerman Reading Reddit Shower Thoughts Is Hilarious and Mind-Blowing at the Same Time—Watch!

8 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Nick Offerman (or maybe it's Ron Swanson, we can't really tell) has taken on the heavy task of delivering some "simply genius shower thoughts." In the nearly minute-and-a-half clip, Offerman and all of his deadpan glory reads some of Reddit's shower thoughts, and while it certainly gives us the giggles (after all, a lot of these are hilarious), some of the "simply genius shower thoughts" are actually genius! We don't know if it's the zen music in the background or the way Offerman's stare goes straight into our soul, but hearing some of the Parks and Recreation star's statements really made us take a moment to think about life. Here are some examples of these »

Adam Scott Tries to Tell a Crystal Skull Joke in Extended Parks And Recreation Season 6 Gag Reel

10 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of the keys to the success of NBC’s excellent Parks and Recreation is the fact that it is wholly evident that the cast (and characters) genuinely enjoy each other’s company.  This is especially clear in the just-released Parks and Recreation Season 6 gag reel, which offers nearly 10-minutes of outtakes ranging from Jim O’Heir (aka Jerry aka Larry) blowing a take, Adam Scott fumbling over the telling of an Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull joke, and Aziz Ansari and Retta serenading a straight-faced Nick Offerman.  The video is a whole lot of fun and just one more reminder of how much I’ll miss this show when it concludes its upcoming seventh and final season. Hit the jump to watch the Parks and Recreation Season 6 gag reel.  The show returns to NBC in early 2015 for a final stretch of 13 episodes.

Watch: ‘Parks and Recreation’ Releases Season Six Blooper Reel

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

Coupled with the release of the show’s sixth season on DVD, NBC has posted a blooper reel for “Parks and Recreation’s” most recent cycle.

Featuring everything from miniature horses dressed as the cast as an homage to the fictional town’s fallen comrade, Li’l Sebastian, to outtakes of the cast playfully flubbing lines and laughing at each other’s mistakes, the reel highlights some favorite moments from the mockumentary-style series.

The show, which will be returning to NBC  for its last season this fall, has one major Emmy nomination this year: star Amy Poehler is nominated for lead actress in a comedy. This is Poehler’s fifth consecutive nomination in the category, having lost the previous four times.

Ron Swanson gets his dance on in 'Parks and Rec' gag reel

12 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Nick Offerman’s Ron Swanson is usually the serious one on Parks and Recreation. But in the season 6 gag reel, we get to see the king of bacon and eggs let loose: Offerman wiggles across the floor with a huge grin on his face as the crew breaks into laughter.

Other highlights include everything Amy Poehler does (as always) and Jim O’Heir accidentally talking while the cameras are rolling. Typical Jerry.

Parks and Recreation’s seventh and final season premieres in 2015. »

Emmy Predictions: Who Will Win Monday Night

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

When it comes to analyzing awards, the Emmys are the hardest to gauge. The Academy Awards have the luxury of looking to Guild Awards or BAFTAs, which share a voting body with the Academy, but the Emmys noms are determined by a panel of unknown—and unpredictable—judges, before going to the voting body. Still, Variety’s Debra Birnbaum and Jenelle Riley take their best guess at who will bring home the gold Monday night.

Supporting Actor in a Drama

Jenelle: In a category of stellar turns, it’s really a three-man race between previous winners Aaron Paul for the final season of “Breaking Bad,” and Peter Dinklage for “Game of Thrones” and three-time Emmy nominee Jon Voight of “Ray Donovan.” Dinklage submitted a showy episode where he gets a great speech, demanding a trial by combat. Voight is beloved and considered the best thing about the Showtime drama. Still, »

20 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Gaze in wonder and amusement at this gift that keeps on giving: the Parks and Recreation season six gag reel. It features farting! Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) dancing! Flubbed lines! An all Lil Sebastian opening credit sequence! Plus, so many other things that deserve exclamation points! We dare you to watch and not laugh at least once. When Ron Swanson giggles, we all giggle.

Nick Offerman reads profound Shower Thoughts from Reddit

20 August 2014 4:42 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Call them Deep Thoughts for the Reddit generation.

Channeling his inner Ron Swanson in a video created by Mashable, Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman reads simple yet great truisms from the best of Reddit’s Shower Thoughts.

In his signature deadpan, Offerman gazes off into the distance and shares knowledge that can only be summed up as pure Swanson genius. Because technically, he’s right—we’re all half centaur.

But the subreddit isn’t just a depository for readers’ soapy musings—Shower Thoughts is currently trying to raise money for Charity: Water, a non-profit organization seeking to provide »

‘Selfie’ Might Just Be the Most Annoying and the Most Charming Show on TV This Fall

20 August 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

I came very close to shutting off Selfie in the first few minutes. The new sitcom, which debuts on ABC at the end of September, is currently previewing its pilot episode on Hulu, and that could be a mistake. Watching TV on the Internet allows viewers to judge something super quick, and I foresee a lot of others being turned off by the opening scene, which introduces one of the most obnoxious characters ever to hit the small screen — and that includes a lot of awful reality TV stars. But anyone able to get through the first few minutes without closing their browser and throwing their computer out the window will find something genuinely charming and maybe even a little socially important. One episode in, Selfie is far from being a good show, but it has a cultural relevance that’s not unlike The Newsroom. Similar to Aaron Sorkin’s HBO drama, the »

20 August 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Spartacus composer Joseph LoDuca explains how the hit Starz series is a "composer's dream" in our exclusive featurette for Spartacus: The Complete Series, which will debut on Blu-ray and DVD September 16 from Anchor Bay Entertainment.

Before He Became Star Lord, Chris Pratt Was Once a Guy Who Lived in a Van Down By the Beach

20 August 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Everyone has to start somewhere. Chris Pratt may have landed huge blockbuster films like Guardians of the Galaxy and The Lego Movie, but before that, he was just a young stud living in Hawaii, waiting for his big break. Pratt recently posted a super sweet snapshot of his baby-faced self showing off the van he was living out of as an unknown actor. In his hand? The script that would take him straight to Hollywood.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Pratt was working at Bubba Gump Shrimp while waiting to hear back from director Rae Dawn Chong, who ultimately cast him in Cursed Part 3. After that he landed television roles in Everwood, The O.C., and Parks and Recreation. And from there, the rest is history.

But Pratt wasn’t the only notable star who was homeless before Hollywood. Check out which other actors struggled before fame, in the gallery below. »

Seth Meyers on Hosting the Emmys: Entertaining Entertainers Isn't Easy

20 August 2014 9:55 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

He's got the tux and he's working on the jokes. The only thing not under control is his nerves. Late Night host Seth Meyers chatted with People about his upcoming pressure-packed hosting gig at the Primetime Emmy Awards on Aug. 25. Are you freaking out?I'm a nerve junkie. I keep doing things that are nerve-inducing. When I did the White House Correspondents' Dinner and the ESPYs, it was a little less stressful because I was the entertainer in a room not full of entertainers. With the Emmys, every face you see are people that have entertained you over the years. »

20 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

It sounds like love will be in the air when Parks and Recreation returns for its final season.

Megan Mullally and Natalie Morales are both set to reprise their roles for the final season of Parks and Rec, EW has learned.

Mullally (Will & Grace, Party Down) will make her annual trek to Pawnee as Tammy 2, the second ex-wife of Ron Swanson. Surely she’ll make one last pass at the now happily married father when she returns in the second episode.

As for Morales (Girls, Trophy Wife), she appeared on the NBC comedy way back in season 2 as Lucy, Tom »

Parks and Recreation appears to be ratcheting up the twisted relationship between Ron and his unhinged ex in its final season.
