Arrested Development Cameos Teased In Avengers: Infinity War

Arrested Development Cameos Teased In Avengers: Infinity War
Micheal Bluth fighting Thanos to save the world? It could happen. While co-directors Anthony and Joe Russo are best known for their work on Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, and Avengers: Infinity War, one of their first big projects in the industry was actually working on the Golden Globe-winning series Arrested Development. The Russo brothers directed a good number of the series' episodes, including the series' pilot. And it looks like there will be some nods to the show in the upcoming sequel.

In a recent interview with Andy McCarroll Movies, the Infinity War directors were asked whether or not we should expect to see anything from Arrested Development in the new Avengers movie. While the pair of directors declined to reveal any details of the movie itself, Joe Russo did at least give us a clue of what to expect. Said Joe Russo.

Donald Glover to Host ‘Saturday Night Live’ Next Month

Donald Glover to Host ‘Saturday Night Live’ Next Month
With season 2 of “Atlanta” in full swing and “Solo: A Star Wars Story” coming out next month, Donald Glover will make his hosting debut on “Saturday Night Live” on May 5, the show announced early Sunday.

The actor-writer-director will also perform as the show’s musical guest in the guise of his Grammy-winning rapper alter-ego, Childish Gambino.

This marks Glover’s return to NBC after previously serving as a writer and guest star on the network’s hit comedy “30 Rock” as well as starring in the cult hit sitcom “Community.”

Glover left “Community” midway through the show’s fifth season in 2013, citing a need for more independent projects. This led to his own series, “Atlanta,” on FX, a comedy that has already won him two Emmys and two Golden Globes.

Glover’s musical performance on “SNL” will be one of his final big performances as Childish Gambino, as he revealed at last year’s Governors Ball Festival in New York that he will be retiring from hip-hop after one more album. His 2016 album “Awaken, My Love!” went gold in America and earned a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year.

Glover will play the famed smuggler Lando Calrissian in “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” which will reveal how the future head of Cloud City first met Han Solo. Glover will also play Simba in the 2019 live-action remake of “The Lion King.”

Venom Movie Soundtrack Gets Black Panther Composer

Composer Ludwig Goransson is moving from one major comic book movie to another. Goransson recently composed the original score for Marvel's Black Panther, which isn't just the biggest hit of the year so far, but it's one of the biggest superhero movies ever. Now, Sony has tapped the Swedish composer to score the soundtrack for their upcoming Venom movie, which stars Tom Hardy in the titular role. Maybe a little bit of that Black Panther magic will rub off.

Venom will reunite Ludwig Goransson with director Ruben Fleischer, who directed Venom and is probably best known for his work on Zombieland. The two worked together previously on the 2011 comedy 30 Minutes or Less, which starred Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari. Goransson has also worked on movies like Death Wish and Central Intelligence, in addition to two previous collaborations with Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, scoring both Fruitvale Station and Creed.

Joel McHale On Moving to Netflix After ‘The Soup’ and Being Asked to ‘Lay Off’ the Kardashians
Netflix has poached another one. After nabbing Ryan Murphy, David Letterman and Shonda Rhimes, the streaming goliath has recruited Joel McHale, the former host of E!’s “The Soup,” who has landed his own weekly pop culture commentary series, “The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale,” set to launch Feb. 18 on Netflix.

This isn’t the first time McHale has entered the streaming game. Amidst his 12-year run hosting “The Soup,” his NBC comedy “Community” moved to the now-defunct Yahoo Screen for a short-lived revival.

“According to the former Yahoo Screen executives, we apparently single-handedly brought down their streaming service, so I have to thank Netflix for allowing me another chance back on a streaming service,” McHale quips during a recent phone interview with Variety.

“The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale” sounds like an updated version of “The Soup,” which was cancelled in 2015, but McHale promises the two shows are “totally different.”

Futile and Stupid Gesture Trailer Charts the Rise of National Lampoon

Netflix has released the first trailer for their upcoming biopic A Futile & Stupid Gesture, starring Will Forte as comedy wunderkind Doug Kenney. While this icon might not necessarily be a household name, he co-created the National Lampoon magazine, along with co-writing comedy classic movies Caddyshack and Animal House. Kenney was at the center of the 70's comedy counter-culture which gave birth to Saturday Night Live and a whole generation's way of looking at the world. The trailer hints that the movie will take quite a unique approach, with Will Forte playing Doug Kenney in the 1970s, and Martin Mull playing the "modern-day" Doug Kenney... even though he's been dead for 37 years.

The trailer begins with someone asking Martin Mull, in character as "modern-day" Doug, who is asked by his interviewer if he could introduce himself as, "the man who changed comedy, but couldn't change himself," which lead Mull to respond with,

2017 in Review: Best Reunions — Boy Meets World, Roseanne and More
2017 may not have succeeded at unifying us as a country, but at least it brought some of our favorite TV duos back together.

Whether it was two actors re-teaming for a new project (like Ken Jeong did on Dr. Ken with two former Community stars) or two actors reprising roles they once played years earlier (like the leading ladies of Raven’s Home or the men of Psych: The Movie), 2017 was a very good year for people who enjoy recognizing familiar pairings.
