Watch: Jack Black And Tim Robbins Get Political In HBO Comedy 'The Brink'

7 May 2015 2:38 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

With the U.S. elections coming up and providing their own form of comedy, we'll need all the relief we can get, and HBO is stepping up. They've already got the political laffer "Veep," they're adding to their slate with "The Brink," and a new trailer for the first season is here. Read More: Watch Jack Black And Tim Robbins In First Trailer For HBO's 'The Brink' Jack Back and Tim Robbins lead the ensemble of the show which tracks the efforts of a bunch of bumbling suits, soldiers, and agents in the field as they try to avert the next World War. Jay Roach ("Meet The Parents," "The Campaign") directed the pilot and is an executive producer of the show, and as you can see, the results are quite broad, though not necessarily gut busting.

An Unleashed Jason Sudeikis Steals The Hilarious Sleeping With Other People

25 April 2015 1:07 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The transition from the small to the big screen is a tricky one to master. Some personalities are brimming with so much energy, talent and charisma that they can.t help but ascend to celluloid while others struggle to find their voice in their new medium and slowly decline into obscurity. Saturday Night Live alumni Jason Sudeikis is somewhere in between. Sudeikis. rise from scene-stealing support in Semi-Pro and The Campaign to credible leading man in Hall Pass, Horrible Bosses and We.re The Millers has been impressive. But he hasn.t looked entirely at home in these parts, and some of his performances have felt a tad forced, which has slightly hindered his comedic efforts. But things appear to be changing for Sudeikis. Over the last year, he has looked to move into more independent and character-driven fare with the likes of Drinking Buddies, Tumbledown and Sleeping With Other »

Interview: Hitting the Links with the Collaborators of ‘The Squeeze’

20 April 2015 8:16 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Golf and gambling go together like the 19th hole and tall tales. The green grass of the course isn’t the same without a little wagering, and the new film ‘The Squeeze’ – written and directed by Terry Jastrow – follows the game from small town America to the big stage of Las Vegas.

The film boasts an all-star cast, and is co-produced by Oscar nominee Anne Archer. The excellent character actor Michael Nouri, the steady Christopher McDonald and the very funny Katherine Lanasa are joining forces with newcomers Jeremy Sumpter and Jillian Murray. The odyssey of a young hot prospect and two gambling legends – based on a true story – are teed up to create a viable comedy about colorful characters, the essence of the links and who-will-outdo-who on the fairway and in the rough of life.

Forecast: 'Get Hard,' 'Home' Could Be in Tight Race This Weekend

26 March 2015 4:41 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

DreamWorks Animation's Home (2015) and Will Ferrell/Kevin Hart comedy Get Hard could both open north of $30 million this weekend, which would put them in a close race for first place.Meanwhile, holdovers The Divergent Series: Insurgent and Cinderella will likely battle for third place with with around $20 million.Playing at 3,175 locations, Get Hard checks off a handful of the boxes required for a comedy hit. First, it has two broadly-appealing, frequently successful co-stars in Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart. With the exception of a few odd choices*Land of the Lost, Semi-Pro*most Ferrell movies wind up earning at least $75 million at the domestic box office. His most recent, Anchorman: The Legend Continues, wrapped up with $127.4 million last year.In the time since the second Anchorman opened, Hart has starred in four movies, all of which opened north of $20 million. The biggest of those was Ride Along, which opened »

Movie Review – Get Hard (2015)

26 March 2015 11:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Get Hard, 2015

Directed by Etan Cohen

Starring Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Craig T. Nelson, Alison Brie, T.I, Edwina Findley Dickerson, Ariana Neal, Paul Ben-Victor

Synopsis:

When millionaire James King is nailed for fraud and bound for San Quentin, he turns to Darnell Lewis to prep him to go behind bars.

Imagine you’re Will Ferrell. There was a period in time when you were considered to be comedy royalty and everything you touched turned to belly laughs. Sadly, the last few years have been rather unkind and audiences have started to become immune to your efforts. Movies like The Other Guys and The Campaign blot a once stellar record of movies and the diabolical barrel-scrapping Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues has shown that you can’t even go back to the well and capture lightning a second time. So what do you do? Attach yourself to the latest thing in comedy, »

Week in Review: Tommy Wiseau teases a prequel to ‘The Room’ in Reddit Ama

20 March 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Week in Review rounds up the past week in film news in one easy place. Check back this weekend for round-ups for TV and gaming.  

Oh Hai Tommy Wiseau. You’re making something of a comeback, aren’t you? Several months back we reported that you were working on a TV sitcom that you had written, directed, and starred in (naturally) called The Neighbors, but that in the same way that you would start throwing around a football and then completely forget about it a moment later, it seemed like that was just a whim. Sure enough, The Neighbors was picked up on Hulu, and this week you did a Reddit Ama to promote it. Looks like people are finally starting to recognize your genius.

Stepping away from my conversation with Mr. Wiseau for a moment, if you’ve ever actually gotten an opportunity to attend a late night screening »

Will Ferrell Pitched A Great Idea To Host The Oscars In 2012 With Zach Galifianakis But Was Turned Down

17 March 2015 10:29 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Every year the Academy Awards take place, and pretty much every year the ceremony is too long, saddled with segments that should've been cut or are included because of tradition. And every morning following the Oscars, many commentaries point out multiple ways the show is dull or should be improved. Needless to say, the Oscars needs a serious creative rewrite, and Will Ferrell had a great idea and offered to host the 2012 show, and of course the producers said no. The context: In November 2011, it was announced that Eddie Murphy would not host after Brett Ratner, the director who had recently worked with Murphy, was relieved of producing duties after he had used a gay slur. Brian Grazer then stepped in to take over the show, Ferrell's manager got in touch, and this is what happened. "We [meaning himself and Zach Galifianakis; the two were making "The Campaign" at the time] will host the Oscars if you do a »

Scarlett Johansson Is Set To Take The Psychopath Test

18 February 2015 1:08 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jon Ronson is a renowned investigative journalist who has spent years exploring the more hidden aspects of society for radio, television, and print. His books, including Clubbed Class, Them: Adventures With Extremists and The Men Who Stare At Goats, all feature a narrative structure that is specific to Ronson’s work – setting factual investigation within the gripping flow of his experiences in tracking down the information. Each account has the reader essentially riding shotgun with Ronson as he goes to get the story. The Psychopath Test: A Journey Through The Madness Industry, published in 2011, features this structure, too, and is now being developed by Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment as The Psychopath Test, starring Scarlett Johansson.

The Psychopath Test: A Journey Through The Madness Industry sets out to explore the murky world of psychiatric diagnosis, and in doing so, looks at the mental health industry, including the media, the professionals and the patients – specifically psychopaths. »

Jay Roach Attached to Direct Action Comedy Adaptation 'Mad Dogs'

30 January 2015 12:26 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After messing with politics both dramatically and comedically with Game Change and The Campaign respectively, director Jay Roach is looking to switch things up by venturing into action comedy. THR has word that the director of the Austin Powers trilogy is attached to direct Mad Dogs, an adaptation of the book of the same name by James Grady. The book, which is being used as a jumping off point for the big screen story described as The Hangover meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Wes Jones, who wrote the 2010 Black Listed script College Republicans, will write the script, and this one sounds like a lot of fun. The story will follow three dysfunctional guys working low-level jobs in U.S. Intelligence who have been deemed crazy and sent to a government mental hospital for spies. Convinced someone wants them dead, they hatch an escape plan. It’s obvious they »

Jay Roach Rounds Up Mad Dogs

29 January 2015 12:01 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

In recent years, Meet The Parents director Jay Roach has turned his attention more towards political subjects as with HBO TV movies Recount and Game Change and the Will Ferrell/Zach Galifianakis comedy The Campaign. While his latest film, Trumbo is a lot more serious, he’s looking to get back into funnier territory with Mad Dogs.Wes Jones is attached to use Six Days Of The Condor author James Grady’s eponymous book as the launching pad for a conspiracy-tinged script about three dysfunctional people working low-level jobs in Us intelligence. When their bosses become convince that they’re crazy, the trio is packed off to a government psychiatric hospital for espionage types, where they soon begin to fear that the higher-ups want them dead. Clearly they know too much and have to plot an escape plan, but they also need to figure out exactly what it is that »

25 surprising side businesses from Hollywood stars

15 January 2015 8:54 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paul Newman’s salad dressing enterprise is common knowledge, but did you know about these 25 businesses run by Hollywood stars?

What do big-time movie stars get up to in their spare time? While their fictional counterparts might enjoy chopping wood or getting hosed down by friendly females (more on that here), actors themselves have a tendency towards wacky entrepreneurial ideas and hefty industrial investments.

Looking at our findings from some rigorous research (read: Googling), it seems that you can divide famous actors into a handful of groups – those who are trying to do something good for the world, those who are trying to break into internet megabucks and those who like opening restaurants.

Without further chit-chat, here’s a breakdown of which stars are behind which brands which you may or may not know and love…
