The Immortal Kevin Fitzpatrick was born and raised in New York City, and that doesn't make sense. Kevin wears many hats, including actor, editor, and writer, but never yellow. The best things in life are Back to the Future, beets, Firefly and The Venture Bros. When not picking apart the minutia of pop culture in film and TV, Kevin can usually be found RIGHT BEHIND YOU.
Kevin Fitzpatrick Biography
HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ somehow managed to up its epic scale even further with IMAX screenings to debut the season 5 trailer, but it seems the January 23 screening has officially been de-throned. In a good news-bad news move, the screenings have been pushed back to a later premiere date, adding 50 additional theaters around the country in the process.
NBC has been surprisingly quiet about ‘SNL’'s impending 40th anniversary special, but VH1 has upped the nostalgia ante in a major way. VH1 Classic will begin a 19-day marathon of ‘SNL’'s 40 years on January 28, working backwards through 433 episodes and staging themed mini-marathons along the way.
‘SNL’ kicks off the road to its 40th anniversary special with the 2015 premiere this weekend, returning ‘The Wedding Ringer’ star Kevin Hart to the stage with musical guest Sia. There’s much to catch up on from the break, so recount Kevin and Aidy Bryant’s New Year’s resolutions with our first official ‘SNL’ promo of 2015!
Just when you thought the cast of cult classic ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ returning for Netflix’s sequel series was bananas enough, the star-studded ensemble adds even more to its ranks. Headed to camp for Netflix’s ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ revival are ‘Mad Men’ star John Slattery, ‘In A World’'s Lake Bell, ‘The Interview’'s Randall Park, ‘SNL’'s Michaela Watkins, Rob Huebel…it’s a lot, guys. Just a big, big cast.
NBC’s darkly delicious ‘Hannibal’ lost one of its more headline-grabbing stars for season 3 when Joe Anderson replaced ‘Boardwalk Empire’’s Michael Pitt as literary villain Mason Verger, but Bryan Fuller’s “remix” series has added another dish in his wake. Fresh off ‘The Battle of the Five Armies,’ ‘The Hobbit’ star Richard Armitage will play ‘Hannibal’'s incarnation of ‘Red Dragon’ villain Francis Dolarhyde.
‘Star Wars Rebels’ has increasingly established itself as a primer for ‘The Force Awakens’ by its original trilogy returns, and whether or not we see Lando Calrissian hanging out with BB-8 or Kylo Ren some day, we’re ecstatic to see the character brought to life by Billy Dee Williams once more. See Lando as a younger, smoother operator with our first footage of Billy Dee Williams joining ‘Star Wars Rebels’!
We’re still pinching ourselves at the notion that ‘Community’ survived to its sixth season after all, but Yahoo Screen will have much more than a pinch this March. The Greendale gang has officially set a March return for the ostensibly final season of ‘Community’ (assuming #SixSeasonsAndAMovie), also revealing their episode schedule.
‘The Flash’ has had himself a decent holiday break, picking up ‘Spartacus’ vet Liam McIntyre days before winning an official season 2 renewal, but things will go downhill quickly for the Scarlet Speedster’s January 20 return. Our first photos from 2015 premiere “Revenge of the Rogues” have arrived, and both Captain Cold and Heat Wave don’t exactly look like the play-nice types.
Amazon gained some serious credibility in the TV department in recent months, particularly with Sunday’s dual Golden Globe wins for ‘Transparent’ and star Jeffrey Tambor, but the retail conglomerate’s studio branch has its biggest match point yet. Woody Allen himself will write and direct his first TV series for Amazon, already ordered for a full season. I mean, it is Woody Allen.
It’s not every day that we get a chance to talk about ‘The Venture Bros.,’ and while don’t know very much about the sixth season just yet, the boys are officially back for a brand-new special airing on January 19. Bewaring major spoilers, check out the first full trailer for ‘The Venture Bros.’ special, as Rusty, the Monarch and co. head to space!
