‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’: Here’s a Guide to the Stellar Supporting Cast

10 July 2017 8:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The cast of “Spider-Man: Homecoming” includes no shortage of famous faces, including two Oscar nominees and two full-on Oscar winners. But anyone paying close attention while watching this weekend’s box office winner might have noticed a number of other familiar faces. In fact, director Jon Watts has packed nearly every small supporting role he could with a niche comedian or former child star on the verge of adulthood.

Hannibal Buress Paid an Imposter to Infiltrate Spider-Man Premiere

30 June 2017 8:07 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hannibal Buress portrays Coach Wilson in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and he apparently wanted to skip the premiere so he hired an imposter instead. I'd like to say it was a look-alike, but that was definitely not the case here because the guy looked nothing like the comedian. Buress is probably best known for his standup career and as Eric Andre's sidekick on the Eric Andre Show, which may very well be where this newest stunt originated from. I can just imagine Buress and Andre concocting the idea together and sitting back to watch the joke unfold.

Buress fired off a few tweets (that have since been deleted) asking for a "look-alike" to stand in for him at the Spider-Man: Homecoming premiere. The comedian even offered $500 to somebody who could think on their feet with "solid comedic timing." Actor Joe Carroll took up the gig and went straight to the premiere as Buress, »

Family Comedy from Erica Oyama in Development at Fox

26 April 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Erica Oyama: Steamy Awards/YouTube

Sarah Gertrude Shapiro and Marti Noxon’s “UnREAL” has earned rave reviews for depicting the disturbing drama and ugliness behind the scenes of a “Bachelor”-esque reality show. But before the Lifetime series came along, E!’s “Burning Love” took a more comedic approach to riffing on the long-running Chris Harrison-hosted series. “Burning Love’s” creator, writer, and executive producer, Erica Oyama, has a new project in the works. Deadline reports that she has a half-hour single camera comedy series in development at Fox.

“Based on Oyama’s life, the family comedy centers on Olivia, a single mom who returns to Alabama where her Japanese karate-master father still lives and teaches,” the source summarizes. “She joins the family business while enlisting her father’s help in toughening up her pessimistic nine-year-old son.”

A parody of “The Bachelor” and its spinoffs, “Burning Love” originally debuted on the web on Yahoo! Screen’s Comedy Channel before being picked up by E!. The Emmy-nominated series ran for three seasons. Its rotating cast included Jennifer Aniston, Kristen Bell, Malin Akerman (“Billions”), June Diane Raphael (“Grace and Frankie”), and Natasha Leggero (“Another Period”).

“Children’s Hospital,” “Ntsf:sd:suv,” and “The Eric Andre Show” are among Oyama’s other credits.

“It’s just so funny to hear, ‘female comedies are so hot right now,’ because, of course, they’re just comedies that have females in them,” Oyama said in a 2014 interview. “I guess it’s just encouraging that everyone’s sort of like, ‘Yes, these women are hilarious, and we should be watching them as much as we’re watching these guys be ridiculous, too.’ I hope it keeps going. I want to be a part of it, of writing it. Obviously, women are just as funny — it’s such a silly discussion that people are still having,” she emphasized.

Family Comedy from Erica Oyama in Development at Fox was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

‘The A.V. Club’ Wants to Be Your Smart TV: How The Pop-Culture Site Is Moving Into the Entertainment News Circuit

24 March 2017 2:39 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

A modest studio nestled in a corridor of industrial Chicago is the latest front in the ongoing battle to marry news and pop culture. Here, writers for the Fusion network’s new weekly show, “The A.V. Club,” are discussing how to best taste-test a Nintendo Switch cartridge.

The gag will serve as the cold open for the second episode of the pop-culture website’s eponymous TV show, which premiered March 16 and will air a new episode every Thursday evening. Host John Teti and his writers, Yolanda Carney and Fran Hoepfner, recently learned that Nintendo has coated cartridges for its new gaming system in something deliberately foul-tasting, to prevent children from eating them. “So we’re feeding it to adults,” Hoepfner said.
