Interview: ‘Joel Murray & Friends’ at the New iO Chicago Venue

28 August 2014 10:48 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – iO Chicago continues the Grand Opening at its new venue with one of its most famous alumni – the illustrious Joel Murray. Besides opening the seventh season of “Mad Men” with a brilliant monologue as Freddy Rumsen, Murray brings his “Joel Murray & Friends” show to the new iO Chicago on August 30th.

Murray is the youngest of the famous “Murrays of Wilmette, Illinois,” which includes brothers Brian-Doyle, Bill and John, plus sister Nancy. He is also one of the earliest members of the former Improv Olympics – now called iO – which grew from its modest beginnings in Chicago with founders Del Close and Charna Halpern to their latest multi-theater venue on Kingsbury Street. Joel Murray comes back to his roots with “Joel Murray & Friends” in The Mission Theater at the venue, which will feature some other famous iO alumni including Jack McBrayer (“30 Rock”), Mitch Rouse (“According to Jim”), Kevin Dorff (“Conan »

The Simpsons top 50 episodes

28 August 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob counts down the top 50 episodes of TV's longest-running animated series, The Simpsons...

Since its debut in 1989, across 552 episodes and 25 seasons, The Simpsons has become one of the most revered and beloved TV programmes of all time. It’s a true cultural phenomenon that’s influenced not just animation, but all areas of TV comedy and sitcom. For so many of us, its quotes and catchphrases have permeated our everyday vernacular, from single words like “crisitunity” and “embiggen” to phrases “you don’t win friends with salad” and “everything’s coming up Milhouse.”

Personal opinions may vary, but for me the show’s peak years were from season 4 through to 10. They’re consistently funny, all killer and no filler runs with barely a dud episode to be found between 1992-1998. Past this point the standard becomes a little more mixed, and recent seasons have been distinctly average at best. The »

FM 276 Sneak Preview!

25 August 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

“Everybody relax… I’m here.”

Ladies and gentlemen, don’t get too comfortable in your seats with FM 275, because a certain Jack Burton is coming along in 276, and he’s bound to bring trouble. And monsters. Another Jason Edmiston cover for the ages:

Yes, it’s the first official Famous Monsters tribute to John Carpenter‘s 80s classic Big Trouble In Little China! Within, find an interview with Carpenter himself, along with a feature on Eric Powell and Boom! Studios’ Big Trouble comic series, plus a complete retrospective on the context of the film’s release.

John Carpenter: “I read the script, and I loved it. I was like, what is this? It was unlike anything I’d ever seen in an American film. It was written by a friend of mine, W.D. Richter. I went to film school with him. So we talked, and he explained to me »

With announcements for 'Executioner' and Remo Williams, Hollywood seems crazy for pulp

25 August 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

How many of you have ever read an actual original era pulp story? Anything involving Doc Savage or The Shadow or John Carter or Doctor Death or The Phantom Detective or Tarzan or Solomon Kane or Conan or The Continental Op? If you haven't, that puts you in what I am sure is a vast majority at this point. I can't fault anyone for not being a reader of that sort of source material. It's not something that is part of the active mainstream right now, but if Hollywood gets its way, that may be about to change. There are some huge names in the world of pulp. By far, the biggest budget pulp title currently pending release is the David Yates "Tarzan" that Warner Bros. is putting out in 2016. When I interviewed Samuel L. Jackson at Comic-Con this summer, he repeatedly told me how excited he was by what »

Best of Late Night TV: Lindsay Lohan Takes the Ice Bucket Challenge, Jared Leto Gets Shaved (Video)

21 August 2014 12:27 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Lindsay Lohan was the latest celebrity to participate in the viral Als Ice Bucket Challenge campaign, after a "Tonight Show" viewer wrote in to complain that he challenged the actress, but she had yet to respond. That didn't sit well with host Jimmy Fallon, who flew Lohan in from London to complete the stunt. After she did the deed, the sopping wet starlet challenged another set of people, including Prince Harry and fellow "Tonight Show" guest Jared Leto.

Speaking of Leto, he didn't walk away from "Tonight" completely unscathed either, as mid-interview, Fallon decided to shave his bushy, messiah-reminiscent beard. "I have been asked to do some resurrections lately, »

‘The Simpsons’ Marathon: 6 Things to Notice While Watching Fxx’s 12-Day Run

20 August 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Five hundred and twenty-two episodes of “The Simpsons” shown over 278 continuous hours? Don’t have a cow, man!

When 21st Century Fox’s general-entertainment outlet Fxx unspools every “Simpsons” half-hour ever made (plus the 2007 movie) starting at 10 a.m. Thursday, it would seem to offer an overwhelming task: How can a viewer immerse himself or herself in such a torrent of content and yet pause to note some of the nuances in the stream?

Your answer is here. While bingeing on Bart, Lisa and Maggie in such amounts could make the average couch potato feel as if they’ve been drizzled in butter, cheese and bacon, the simple fact is the series has its Easter eggs and special moments that everyone should at least try to note. Below, a small sampling:

Odd Musical Notes: Sure, Coldplay (Season 21, Episode 11) and U2 (Season 9, Episode 22) have made cameos on the series, but so »

Best of Late Night TV: Pierce Brosnan Fails at 'GoldenEye 007,' Chloe Grace Moretz Fakes Cello (Video)

19 August 2014 11:54 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Pierce Brosnan was on "The Tonight Show" to promote his new movie "The November Man," but he talked about the little-known ridiculousness that goes into making the Bond films. He shared a particularly awkward filming moment involving skiing, and illustrated the situation by kneeling on the floor as Jimmy Fallon laughed his butt off at him. Jimmy, a huge James Bond fan, also went old school-ish with Pierce, breaking out his copy of the Nintendo 64 game "GoldenEye 007," one of his favorite video games ever. Pierce said he played the game once and shot himself in the foot - so the bar was low to beat him. Jimmy set up »

Emmys Host Seth Meyers: Show’s Success Depends on ‘Really Good Jokes’

19 August 2014 7:05 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Less than a year into his tenure at NBC’s “Late Night,” Seth Meyers will take the stage Monday night as host of the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards. The job has plenty riding on it: Last year’s Neil Patrick Harris-hosted ceremony brought in the kudofest’s highest ratings in eight years, while this year’s Oscars — complete with Ellen DeGeneres’ famous selfie photo — was the highest rated of that ceremony in 14 years. Is Meyers up to the task? He recently spoke with Variety about the upcoming awards show, which airs live at at 8 p.m. Et/5 p.m. Pt on NBC.

Jimmy Fallon had success when he hosted the Emmys in 2010 and “SNL” vets Tina Fey and Amy Poehler did so well at the Golden Globes. Is there something about  “Saturday Night Live” that prepares you for being a good awards show host?

The “SNL” schedule certainly helps »

Latenight Hosts Colbert, Fallon, Kimmel Sign On to Present at Emmy Awards

Experience of Hosting the Emmys Proves to Be a Mixed Bag

19 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Some years, who’s hosting the Emmy Awards proves more memorable than the winners themselves. Sometimes it’s because the hosts were great, but occasionally it’s because they felt flat.

“It takes a lot of talent to host, but it’s a lot of hard work. I’m still a little tired,” says three-time host Garry Shandling, who most recently hosted in 2004. “It’s a fantastical adventure to be hosting. It’s surreal, almost as if it’s animated because the clock is ticking and people are moving; yet you’re doing it live. There are no retakes.”

That is, unless you’re including pre-taped segments, which have become almost de rigueur of late.

Conan O’Brien — who hosted in 2002, 2006, and co-hosted in 2003 with Shandling and nine other comedians, including Ellen DeGeneres — calls a sequence of him running through every nominated show his favorite bit.

Here’s What You Need to Know About the Justice League’s Aquaman

19 August 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

If you’re not a comic book fan, chances are that the only place you’ve seen Aquaman will be in shows like Family Guy and The Big Bang Theory where he has been mercilessly ridiculed. It’s not hard to understand why, especially as on the surface it appears as if the aquatic superhero does little more than talk to fish.

However, there’s a lot more to Aquaman than that, perhaps explaining why he’s set to make an appearance in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice before taking on a leading role in both Justice League and his own solo movie. Of course, none of those will mark the character’s first live-action appearance as Alan Ritchson played him in Superman TV show Smallville and he was at one point set to have his own series starring Justin Hartley.

This upcoming take promises to handle Aquaman in »

Will Smith Dances Shirtless at Vegas Pool Party

15 August 2014 7:45 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

This is how you do a party Big Willie style.

At 45 years old Will Smith can still get jiggy with the best of them.

The actor reverted back to his Fresh Prince ways at a Las Vegas pool party, shedding his shirt and breaking into The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air "Jump On It" dance done to the song by The Sugarhill Gang.

This magical '90s throwback moment was captured on video and posted to Instagram on Friday.

Will has plenty to dance about. Martin Lawrence confirmed that a Bad Boys 3 is in the works during an appearance on Conan earlier this week.

Dave Franco, Kevin Hart Slap and Rap in Most Annoying Madden NFL Ad Ever Created (Video)

15 August 2014 4:12 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Dave Franco is randomly attacked by Kevin Hart in a wacky new ad for Madden NFL 15 released Friday by video gamemakers EA Sports. The almost four-minute long commercial-music video called “Madden Season,” starts off innocently enough with Hart walking up to Franco's beautiful mansion and frantically knocking at his beautiful door. See video: Watch Outtakes from Conan & Dave Franco's Creepy Tinder Segment “Kev, what's up?” Franco asks. Hart's only response is a cold, hard, inexplicable slap to the face. “It's Madden season,” informs a chorus of cheerleaders/back-up dancers who appear behind Hart randomly, as if paying unneeded homage to Gwen Stefani‘s 2005 video. »

Conan O'Brien does the Als Ice Bucket Challenge

15 August 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Last night, Conan O’Brien followed in Jimmy Fallon’s footsteps and took part in the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, which was designed to spread the word about Als. Those who perform the challenge can then challenge someone else. If the person challenged doesn’t complete it in 24 hours, they have to donate $100 to Als.

Only someone didn’t fully explain that to O’Brien. After trying to fake his way through the challenge to earn $100 bucks, O’Brien was in for a rude awakening when he realized that not only was he was supposed to donate the money, but »

First on the docket is Taylor Swift, who sashayed onto "Late Night with Seth Meyers" to talk about her famously flawless post-gym look. How does she look so perfect after pumping iron? The mystery continues.... Your browser does not support iframes.

Martin Lawrence Says 'Bad Boys 3' Is Coming

14 August 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Look out, Internet – Martin Lawrence says Bad Boys 3 is coming. The actor, who’s currently out doing press for his new series Partners, was on the Conan O’Brien Show and had the following to say when the ginger one brought up rumors that a third film was in the works. “I believe so, yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer... yesterday and he said it’s real. They’re working on the script, they’re getting close and it all looks good." This seems to support the quote that came from Bruckheimer himself on the topic, back in April. “It’s so funny because we’ll get Sony real excited to make the movie, and then Will [Smith] is off doing two movies. And then, Will will come back and be real excited about it...

Martin Lawrence Confirms That 'Bad Boys 3' Is Still A Thing That Might Happen

14 August 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It has been over ten years since "Bad Boys II," and in the time since, all anyone can think about is when "Bad Boys III" will get made. And steps have been taken. In 2009, Sony hired Peter Craig ("The Town") to write a script, and when that didn't work out, the studio hired David Guggenheim ("Safe House," "Stolen") at the end of last year to take a crack at it. Not much has been heard about the project since, but according to Martin Lawrence, his signature comedy franchise is very much alive. Stopping by "Conan" last night, the actor was asked if the sequel was still in play, and he offered up this quasi-update: "I believe so. Yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer yesterday and he said it's real, they’re working on the script, they’re getting close and it all looks good." Time to get excited? You might want to settle down. »

Bad Boys 3 Is Really Happening

14 August 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

There's been chatter about a third Bad Boys movie for a while now, and Martin Lawrence teased some interesting details on Conan this week. When the host asked about whether or not the sequel is really happening, Lawrence responded, "I believe so, yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer yesterday. He said it's real; they're working on the script. It all looks good." He even joked about casting O'Brien as a "crooked cop on crack." Here's the good part: Smith is in. When O'Brien realistically requested a cameo, Lawrence said, "I will mention it to Will Smith and Jerry Bruckheimer."
