That’s Enough With the Special Guest Stars, ‘Catfish’

10 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

MTV’s Catfish doesn’t always save the big catches for its season finales – the first season finale centered on a tale so classic that it seemed as if it should be served with a side of fries and some coleslaw, a genuine romance marred by one half of the couple sending pictures of someone else and lying about her life (they eventually worked it out, at least for a bit), while the second season ended with a somewhat similar storyline (though this one was elevated by the revelation that the Catfisher had already run this same game on the Catfishee before) – so while we’ve come to expect blockbuster season finales from most other shows, the reality program seems disinterested in delivering that kind of television. Unless, of course, there’s a supermodel available to assist hosts Nev Schulman and Max Joseph as they go about their searching (read: stalking, Googling »

Catfish Finale Recap: Can Catfish Make You a Better Person?

10 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Fellow fishermen, we have reached the end of season 3. Can you believe it? As a present for wading through all the complex cyber love stories this season, Catfish is giving us a guest star. In this episode, Selita Ebanks is taking shotgun, while Max Joseph is sent to the back of the car to film. After hearing the model was a fan of the show, Nev Schulman invited her for a ride-along. At first it seems ridiculous to have a random celebrity join the team, but Ebanks proves she knows how to serve harsh truths and offer tender moments just »

Catfish Recap: Meet the Self-Proclaimed 'King of the Catfish'-es

12 June 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

"This is the kind of loser that gives our show a bad name," Max Joseph indignantly proclaims before storming off-camera in the most recent episode of Catfish. So yeah, this one was a doozy. This season, Nev Schulman and his camera-claw buddy Max have encountered lying family members, talented schemers and scorned celebs, but they were still shocked by the web of lies they unraveled this time. The saga starts with John, a city boy born and raised in South Detroit, also known as Dearborn, Michigan. John comes to our Catfish connoisseurs with the usual tale of finding love online »

Zac Efron Becomes DJ for 'Catfish' Series Host Max Joseph to Direct

6 June 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

No, this isn't some kind of sequel to Neighbors where Zac Efron's fraternity brother character finds a new, thoroughly appropriate profession to follow his party years in college. Instead, The Wrap reports Efron is in talks to star in an untitled project set up at Working Title (coincidentally enough) that will be a coming-of-age story about a young DJ working on what he hopes will be his first hit track. Max Joseph will direct the film, and while you may not know him as a filmmaker, he's a co-host of MTV's TV series "Catfish" with the original film's director Nev Schulman. Will this just be a flick for the MTV generation then? More below! It's hard to say, but Joseph has already gotten awards for his commercial Follow the Frog: And he also directed an acclaimed documentary short called 12 Years of Dfa Records which played South by Southwest.

Tracie Thoms on Catfish: Everything You Need to Know About the First Celebrity on the MTV Show

5 June 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Tracie Thoms made a splash on TV on Wednesday, but it wasn't for a new role. The actress and singer was the first celebrity to appear on Catfish seeking the help of Nev Schulman and Max Joseph. In case you missed it, here's what went down. Thoms, who is known for her roles in Rent—both on Broadway and on film— and Cold Case, had been in contact with a super fan by the name of Sammie. Sammie helped promote Thoms' projects and the two communicated via Twitter. As Thoms said in the episode, a fan like Sammie is a dream come true to spread the word about projects. But Thoms wasn't the only person Sammie was speaking to. She also befriended Thoms' producer friend Lotti Knowles and The Glee »

Sometimes celebrities really are just like "normal people." Not only do they buy groceries and go to the park, they can also get caught up in the tangled web of a catfish, as Rent actress Tracie Thoms did in the latest episode of Catfish. The star reached out to Nev Schulman and Max Joseph for help following up on a deceiving Twitter fan.

Here’s How MTV’s Catfish Actually Works

21 May 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Filmmaker and Catfish investigator Max Joseph told us after last week’s episode that the MTV reality hit “is about breaking through to people and getting them to see themselves and understand their decisions and their actions.” That’s a self-congratulatory way to talk about the Zeitgeisty show in which Joseph and fellow cybersleuth Nev Schulman solve cases of online identity fraud. It’s also the truest way, because Catfish is not just out to expose people lying about their bodies. Like all other reality shows, it’s super contrived, but maybe not in the ways you might think. Here are the eight important things Vulture learned about how Catfish gets made after a frank conversation with series executive producer and MTV senior vice president of news and docs Marshall Eisen. Think of it not as destroying the magic but as proof that all that anxiety is real, which makes Catfish just plain good TV. »
