One of the gimmicks behind Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's 'This is the End' is that the cast is loaded with celebrities playing themselves. But that gets interesting when you have a performer like James Franco, whose life has become an art project. In this new featurette, you can see how the actors approached playing themselves.
If you asked me to sum up Craig Robinson's onscreen presence in a word, the one I'd choose is "likable." Even when he's playing a jerk or a heavy -- like the bouncer in "Knocked Up" or baseball star Reg Mackworthy on "Eastbound & Down" -- his inherent sweetness shines through. Nobody else could say the line "I would tear that ass up," and make it sound like a kind, sensitive compliment. That's Robinson's gift. Try as he might to be a jerk, he'll always be nice. He's the kind of guy you'd want your daughter to marry.
It's precisely that quality that 'Peeples' tries to play off of by casting him as Wade, a typically amiable Robinson character whose relationship with Grace (Kerry Washington) hits a snag when she refuses to introduce him to her family, out of fear of her stern father Virgil (David Alan Grier). But c'mon; he's Craig Robinson. How could anyone not like him?
We're just over half a month to 'The Office's' May 16 series finale and opinion continues to run the gamut on whether or not Steve Carell will reprise the character of Michael Scott one last time before the end. The earlier description we read certainly left the door open for an appearance from Carell, but now co-star Craig Robinson has gone on record claiming the actor won't take any part. Who should we believe? Check out the latest from 'The Office' series finale inside!
'This Is The End' has become one of this summer's most anticipated films, thanks to a couple of hilarious red-band trailers (check out the most recent one here, if you are the only person on the internet who hasn't seen it yet). To get your anticipation for it raised even higher, the first clip has just been released and is waiting for you after the jump!
We're not sure if the 2010 comedy 'Hot Tub Time Machine' has too many devoted fans, but we do know that it made a small profit at the box office before becoming a solid hit on DVD. And that's apparently enough to get a sequel off the ground! We had heard previous rumblings of a sequel, but the the latest update has come out of WonderCon, straight from star Craig Robinson's own mouth.
There's no turning back on 'The Office's final season, which will close the doors on the long-running NBC comedy this May, supposedly without original star Steve Carell. Even so, don't expect the stars of the series to be out of work for long, particularly series staple Craig Robinson. NBC has officially opted to move Craig Robinson to the lead ordering a new pilot for fall 2013, executive produced by 'Office' creator Greg Daniels. Get the scoop on Craig Robinson's new series inside!
The shock of 'Two and a Half Men' star Angus T. Jones' religious rant against the series likely won't die down for a good long while, but it seems Hollywood itself has already taken aim at skewering the young actor. Hilariously, Thursday ratings rival 'The Office' has taken one of the first jabs at Jones, enlisting stars Rainn Wilson and Craig Robinson to re-enact the bizarre video. Are you ready for 'The Office' to get filthy?
