26 Moments That Made Us Unintentionally LOL During This Week’s ‘Gotham’

Gotham

‘Gotham’ is not a very good drama. Though, it has become a very good comedy; the problem is ‘Gotham’ has yet to realize it’s a comedy. Monday night’s episode, ‘Viper,’ featured a poison that made its victims crave milk and cheese. Anyway, here are the 26 (a new record) moments during this week’s ‘Gotham’ that made me literally laugh out loud.

Keanu Reeves discusses his career shift of recent years – years in which he’s also been berated with questions about a possible third ‘Speed’ movie. As it turns out, he still hasn’t even seen ‘Speed 2: Cruise Control.’ Reeves explains why that is, what he thinks about the planned ‘Point Break’ remake, and reminisces about making out with Paula Abdul.

Logan Lerman on ‘Fury’ and How Mel Gibson Jumpstarted His Career

Sony
Sony

Logan Lerman discusses filming ‘Fury,’ a challenge for obvious reasons when you’re working day in and day out with a giant deadly weapon – ‘Fury’ follows the lives of a World War II tank crew; Lerman plays the “new kid,” Norman – but won’t discuss the hazing he endured because he doesn’t want anyone to look bad. (OK, that’s pretty good media training.) Lerman also discusses his first two roles, ‘The Patriot’ and ‘What Women Want,’ and how Mel Gibson, of all people, really jumpstarted his career.

When I met Ryan at a brand new Midtown Manhattan hotel, I explained this is the second time we had met (I always assume that no one ever remembers me) and, well, the memories of our last time together came back -- an interview that involved a misunderstanding over the phrase “America’s scorn.” (I had meant the scorn she might receive because her character from ‘The Office,’ Holly, was taking Michael Scott away; she thought I meant some sort of new project titled ‘America’s Scorn.') The last time I spoke to Ryan,'15 Awesome Minutes with Awesomely Awesome Amy Ryan.’ Well, here are 19 more…

David Ayer On the ‘Polarizing’ Fury and That Time He Was Thrown Under the Bus

David Ayer Fury
Columbia Pictures

David Ayer knows that, with ‘Fury,’ he’s made a polarizing movie. It’s fascinating when not a director not only reads the reviews, but is openly talking about those reviews before a movie has even opened. Ayer is exaggerating when he says “the knives are out,” (‘Fury’ currently sits at 70 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), and has its fair share of support to counter those that don’t – but Ayer is right when he calls it polarizing in the fact that the people who like it, really like it, and the same can be said for its detractors. ‘Fury’ sure does cause a reaction.

16 Moments That Made Us Unintentionally LOL During This Week’s ‘Gotham’

Gotham

Monday night’s ‘Gotham,’ titled 'Arkham,' featured a villain who used some sort of telescope-type object, with a nifty extending blade, to kill people. I like to think his name is Telescope Stab Man. Telescope Stab Man is hilarious for his use of such a convoluted weapon, which, yes, is par for the course when it comes to ‘Gotham’ – a hilarious show that doesn’t realize it’s hilarious. Anyway, here are the 16 moments during this week’s ‘Gotham’ that made me literally laugh out loud.

‘SNL’ Scorecard: The Triumphant Return of Bill Hader (And Anthony Peter Coleman)

NBC
NBC

After watching Bill Hader host ‘SNL,’ I think there’s a chance that we all undervalued him while he was actually on the show. And I write this knowing that Hader actually was highly valued, but maybe it wasn’t enough. Hader is this generation’s Phil Hartman. It really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that he makes the perfect host. And it’s evident that ‘SNL’ really hasn’t figured out quite how to replace Hader yet; he fits so effortlessly into this cast. Hader has a way of elevating everything, and that’s why last night we got one of the best ‘SNL’’s in recent memory.
