Metta World Peace is building quite the resume for himself on YouTube. Just before the end of the year, the basketball player formerly known as Ron Artest has made it three web series in one year by starring in The 5th Quarter, a black-and-white mini-doc released by WorldStarHipHop. The series documents Peace's return to the Queensbridge neighborhood of New York City, where he lived as a kid. The large housing project is known as the birthplace of rappers like Nas and Mobb Deep, and Peace gives The 5th Quarter viewers a tour before heading off to his first home game as a member of the New York Knicks. The sequence where he takes the subway to the game is reminiscent of the most famous scene from Jay-z's recent Life + Times documentary. Last January, Peace was busy interviewing children for The Noc's Metta World Therapy; more recently, he fired some bizarre »

Inner-City Wizard School from Peter Atencio on Vimeo. Comedy Central’s Key and Peele are doing their best to fill the eternal gaping void left on the channel by Chappelle’s Show in terms of racially-themed, hilarious comedy sketches. So far, they’re doing a pretty good job, even if they haven’t achieved “legendary status” quite yet. I [&hellip

Key and Peele have been around for years, starting off on MadTV and getting their own show called Key & Peele, which has just been picked up for a fourth season. They both had minor roles in the Judd Apatow produced comedy Wanderlust. Apatow will produce for Apatow Productions, and Key and Peele will be executive producers. Apatow has remained tight-lipped about the details of the project but had this to say about Key and Peele:
"I love these guys because they are riotously, make you sick because you can't stop laughing , funny... I think Key and Peele are capable of making the movie that America desperately needs right now."
If you haven't seen Key & Peele it's a pretty good show having a good balance of low brow and social commentary. »

Former MADtv castmembers Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele first debuted their sketch comedy series Key & Peele on Comedy Central in January 2012, and since then have enjoyed wider success and notoriety as the show has taken off with audiences. One of its fans appears to be Judd Apatow, as Deadline reports that he will produce an untitled feature comedy vehicle for the duo that will be written by Key and Peele for Universal Pictures. Hit the jump for more. Though plot details for the untitled feature are under wraps, Apatow expressed his enthusiasm for the two’s brand of comedy when speaking with Deadline: “I love these guys because they are riotously, make you sick because you can’t stop laughing, funny.

"I love these guys because they are riotously, make you sick because you can't stop laughing, funny," Apatow tells Deadline. "I think Key and Peele are capable of making the movie that America desperately needs right now."
The movie's premise is being kept under wraps -- but we have some ideas, based on some of the characters from their show. (All the clips below, incidentally, are Nsfw.)
Obama and Luther: The president and his anger translator are probably K&P's most famous bit, but could they carry a movie? Maybe a "White House Down"/"Olympus Has Fallen" scenario in which a terrorist attack separates them, and Obama must find his own inner anger to rescue Luther.

Suggesting Comedy Central sketch shows are increasingly becoming Judd Apatow’s version of a farm team, the producer has partnered with Key & Peele stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele to develop a movie for the duo—a deal that comes not long after Apatow made a similar one with Amy Schumer. As with that project, the details are being kept totally under wraps, though Apatow did offer some high praise for his new collaborators by telling Deadline, “I love these guys because they are riotously, make-you-sick-because-you-can’t-stop-laughing funny.

Every time I watch the sketch comedy show Key and Peele I wonder why everyone I know isn't talking about constantly. Starring Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele, the show tackles silly subjects like rap battle hype men and the absurdity of college football player names as well as more taboo topics like racism, gun control, and domestic violence. And it does all this with an incisive wit and a dedicated outlandishness. So it's about time moviemakers stood up and took notice. Deadline reports Judd Apatow is teaming up with Key and Peele to pen a currently untitled comedy for Universal Pictures that will serve as a vehicle for the Comedy Central stars. Apatow Productions will produce, while Key and Peele have signed on as executive producers. Unfortunately, none of the above are willing to share what the logline of their pitch was, but Apatow has stated: "I love these »

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele of Key and Peele fame have partnered up with Judd Apatow to pen an untitled feature comedy for Universal Pictures, which will see both Key and Peele star, with Apatow producing via his Apatow Productions company. To be executive produced by Key and Peele, the comedy feature's plot is not yet public info, as the project is being kept underwraps. Apatow did say, to Deadline, about Key & Peele, “I love these guys because they are »

As we've previously noted, Comedy Central is trying really hard to get Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele's huge YouTube fanbase to tune into their half-hour sketch comedy TV show. After blitzing viewers with promos before and after each video, Key and Peele is now taking a different approach that it hopes will fix the Internet's eyeballs squarely on Comedy Central. The two comedians teamed up with Freddie Wong for a special video, and in return, Wong will appear in Key and Peele's Halloween episode. The video sets up a classic 'Mexican Standoff', with Key, Peele, and Wong unveiling increasing bizarre twists as they keep guns trained on one another. Even though it's basically the same idea FilmCow had three years ago, it's gets a pass because it's pretty funny. The 5secondfilms cameo at the end is just the icing on the cake. Key and Peele also joined Wong on his Facerocker podcast, »

Let's all take a moment to reconsider Death to Smoochy, because as Edward Norton proved last night, he is a damn fine comedian. In his first-ever stint hosting Saturday Night Live, the actor had flawless timing and total commitment to his characters – even the dumb ones, like a mob money-counter who talked like Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man (which was basically Norton re-creating his own performance in The Score). The two-time Oscar nominee delivered some terrifically quotable one-liners: "What would I do for a Klondike bar? I'd suck anything you put in front of me. »
