'The Hotwives of Orlando' Pick Favorite Women in Pop Culture

17 July 2014 5:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hulu's seven-episode series "The Hotwives of Orlando" lampoons Bravo's "Real Housewives" franchises in exactly the right ways: The catchphrases, the melodrama, the sham marriages, and the frightening fights are all parodied with very close attention to detail. Creators Dannah Phirman and Danielle Schneider have a cast of game ladies in their Florida-set series, including Schneider herself (who plays Shauna Maducci, the "bankrupt overspender"), "Happy Endings"/"SNL" vet Casey Wilson as trophy wife Tawny St. John, Tymberlee Hill as Phenomenon "Phe Phe" Reed, Andrea Savage as cougar Veronica Von Vandervon, Angela Kinsey of "The Office" as religious zealot Crystal Simmons, and "30 Rock" vet Kristen Schaal as drug-addled former child star Amanda Simmons.  HitFix caught a few minutes to interview Wilson, Hill, Savage, Schneider, and Phirman. Instead of asking them to name their favorite "Housewives" franchise or terrifying dream about Andy Cohen, we asked them to pick their favorite ladies from famous pop culture groups. »

10 Great Movies Ruined By Happy Endings

17 July 2014 12:43 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Happy endings – who doesn’t love them? After all, we go to see films to be entertained, to escape from the hum drum of daily life where things are far less certain. Let’s face it, life can be a let down a lot of the time and the last thing we need when venturing into the fictional realm of cinema is another reminder that things don’t always work out in the end.

Most movies end happily and most of the time this makes sense. It fits a character arc to reach a satisfying conclusion – we enjoy seeing them grow, learn and develop, overcoming the obstacles put in their path or defeating an evil force that threatens to engulf them. Besides, sad endings leave us feeling as if we’ve been cheated, as if paying to feel miserable is the last thing we expected when buying our tickets. »

Wonder Years Alum Fred Savage Is Directing an Episode of The Goldbergs

16 July 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The connection between ABC retro comedies The Goldbergs and The Wonder Years is about to get a little closer. Vulture has learned that Fred Savage, beloved by millions of late-1980s TV fans as Kevin Arnold on the latter ABC comedy, has signed on to direct an early season-two episode of ABC’s more recent hit. Adam F. Goldberg, The Goldbergs’ creator and namesake, says that he didn’t just hire Savage because he’s a fan of The Wonder Years (though he very much is) or because he thought it would be a cool way to link the two comedies (though it very much is). The Artist Formerly Known As Butthead is actually an Emmy- and DGA-nominated TV director who’s helmed multiple episodes of comedies such as Party Down, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Modern Family, and Happy Endings. “Fred is one of the biggest TV directors out there now, »

Kalki Koechlin to turn director

16 July 2014 7:23 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Kalki Koechlin, who made her debut with the 2009 Anurag Kashyap directed Dev D, has come a long way since then. Known for her rather off beat choice of films, Kalki has carved a niche for herself in the industry. While her last release was the Ranbir Kapoor- Deepika Padukone starrer Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Kalki has four films, Happy Ending, Margarita With a Straw, Jiah O Jiah and Severing Ties in the pipeline. However, the actress will be returning to theatre with an adaptation of Shakespear's Hamlet. Though she has her slate filled with films and theatre shows, we hear that Kalki is planning on turning director soon. Expressing her desire to direct, Kalki firmly puts rumours to rest stating that she is looking at directing plays rather than films. Of late, she has been in the news for her staunch feministic views, while on the film front Kalki »

So you've been fired from 'SNL': Here's what to do next

15 July 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Brooks Wheelan, we hardly knew ye… and now we may never get the chance to. The blue-eyed comedian revealed Monday night that he won’t be returning for a second year at Saturday Night Live this fall—and that the decision wasn’t his to make. In a fairly delightful tweet, Wheelan said that he’d been let go. (His exact words: “Fired from New York, it’s Saturday Night!” Which is funny enough to make me wish things hadn’t ended this way.)

Clearly, getting canned from television’s most august comedy institution must be a bit of a bummer. »

Brooks Wheelan announced on Monday that he was "Fired From New York, It's Saturday Night!"

Brooks Wheelan announced on Monday that after one season on Saturday Night Live, he was "Fired From New York, It's Saturday Night!"

The 27-year-old comedian tweeted: 

But don't go feeling sorry for Weelan just yet. Acclaimed comedy director Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, Superbad) has already reached out to him, tweeting: ".@brookswheelan you will have the Robert Downey Jr. post SNL career! (minus the painful drug addiction). Rock on friend!"

Wheelan responded: ".@JuddApatow thanks man! I'm gonna take this time to formally submit myself for the Ironman reboot in 2021 and the Chaplin reboot in 2032."

Wheelan isn't the only SNL cast member to have his time cut short on the show. Obvious Child star Jenny Slate was let go after one season. She did, however, drop the f-bomb on her first episode. Chris Parnell, who now stars on Suburgatory, was cut from »

New Trailer & Voice Cast Revealed for Disney's Big Hero Six

14 July 2014 5:18 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 

Walt Disney Animation Studios today announced the star voice cast to their upcoming film Big Hero Six and surprisingly, there appears to be no standout A-list star in any major role.  On top of all that new information, there's a brand new movie trailer for you to feast your eyes on as well!  

[Editor's Update:  Disney/Marvel have now revealed an all new trailer for the film, so we figured we'd go ahead and post these all together!

Original article and all the cast information follows below.]

This is not to say any of the actors or actresses are inexperienced as much as it appears the studio is selling the characters themselves over the people who voice them. Most of the performers appear to be up and comers but with an impressive track record of working on big budget projects. However, the list does show James Cromwell and SNL alum Miya Rudolph in supporting roles to round out the cast.

Director Don Hall said of the cast: We’re so impressed with what these performers »

Just How Close Is Casey Wilson's New Show to Happy Endings?

13 July 2014 3:13 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If you loved Happy Endings, Casey Wilson's new show, Marry Me, may already be on your radar. It's a relationship comedy on NBC that feels strikingly similar to her previous beloved series, save for the additions of Ken Marino and Tim Meadows to the cast. The pilot has Wilson and Marino getting engaged after a slightly humiliating moment for both characters and will continue to follow them throughout their engagement. Wilson's real-life husband, David Caspe, serves as a producer and writer on the show - the same roles he filled for Happy Endings - and the pair addressed similarities between the two comedies during Marry Me's Summer TCA panel, plus how much their own romance informed the Fall series. Wilson on how close the show is to her and Caspe's relationship: "We had been dating about two and a half years when he proposed. We did not go »

Jared Hess Heist Comedy Adds Kate McKinnon and Ken Marino

30 June 2014 11:04 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The awesome cast of Jared Hess's untitled heist comedy — previously titled Loomis Fargo — just got awesome-er. Relativity announced today that SNL's Kate McKinnon and Happy Endings and Veronica Mars actor Ken Marino will be joining a cast already stacked with comedic heavy hitters: Zach Galifianakis plays an armored car driver who is convinced to rob a bank by Steve (Owen Wilson) and a bunch of bumbling criminals (Kristen Wiig stars as one of the thieves, and Jason Sudeikis plays a hit man). Marino will play Doug Jeffcoat, Steve's wealthy, uptight neighbor, and McKinnon will play Galifianakis's fiancé. Meanwhile, SNL writer Leslie Jones, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Mary Elizabeth Ellis (a.k.a. "The Waitress"), Nebraska's Devin Ratray, and comic Ross Kimball have also signed on, as a detective, Steve's wife, and Steve's duo of henchmen, respectively. Are you getting all this down? »
