Hot off their Oscar nominations for 'The Wolf of Wall Street,' Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill are reteaming to tell the true story of Richard Jewell, a security guard at the 1996 Olympic games who became a hero after a bomb scare, only to find his life fall apart when he became a suspect himself. According to Deadline, Fox has acquired the rights to Marie Brenner's 1997 article 'The Ballad of Richard Jewell,' which will serve as the source material for the film.
There is no comedy we're looking forward to more in 2014 than the reunion of Schmidt and Jenko, and there's nothing the newly released '22 Jump Street' poster can do to change our minds. The one-sheet could be completely blank and we'd still be excited because '21 Jump Street' remains one of the funniest movies of the past few years, and with everyone back for the sequel our expectations are hight.
The last we saw Seth Rogen, James Franco and Jonah HIll onscreen together was in 'This Is the End,' but the trio won't wait long to reunite as they're already planning one big, R-rated 'Sausage Party.' Yes, it sounds like something one of your bros would say while funneling some PBR at a frat party, but this is in fact the title of Rogen's upcoming animated movie. Funny enough, the recently announced voice cast for the film is also a bit of a sausage fest.
There was a lot of talk before Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street' hit theaters about the length of the film: the release had been delayed so Scorsese could get the runtime down to an acceptable three hours from what was said to be a four-hour version of the film, and although Scorsese never releases "director's cuts" of his films, we're hearing you will be able to see his four-hour cut after all when the Blu-ray hits shelves this year.
Sometimes, 'SNL' is at its absolute best when it decides to go fully and truly off the rails. When the show does abandon reality, it often does so in the final sketch of the night, where things are allowed to get crazier and funkier since more easily unsettled audiences tend to be asleep. Of course, this is just a long-winded way of saying that no sketch has dominated the final segments in recent years quite like the "former porn stars," which pushes the weirdness to truly strange and amazing levels.
Andy Samberg's biggest contribution to the 'SNL' legacy were his digital shorts and music videos, where he took the show's format off the stage to create hilarious pre-recorded material that was primed to go viral all over the internet. With his departure, the show has continued to produce short films and recorded sketches, but Kyle Mooney and Beck Bennett’s work has consistently stood out from the rest of the pack, mainly because of how different it feels from the typical 'SNL' short.
'Her' may not be lighting the box office on fire, but it's undoubtedly one of the best films released in 2013 and a movie that will generate conversation and analysis for years to come. In other words, it's perfect fodder for 'SNL,' who took the film and transformed it into something far creepier and funnier than anything in the actual movie.
When Jonah Hill graced the 'SNL' stage last night, he wasn't just a very funny comic actor -- he was a two-time Oscar nominated thespian with Very Important Things to say. The only problem is that no one cared about Hill. They only cared about his 'The Wolf of Wall Street' co-star Leonardo DiCaprio and all of the cast members strategically placed in the audience made sure to let him know this.
If you think this opening monologue set-up is just an excuse to get Mr. DiCaprio himself to show up for a brief but unforgettable appearance ... you're right.
On tonight's all-new episode of 'SNL,' Jonah Hill drops by the 30 Rock stage for his third time hosting the show. Coincidentally, Hill also just received his second Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor -- this time for his memorable turn in Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street.' Hill has some serious chops, especially in the comedy department, so we can't wait to see what he brings to the stage tonight. Read on for our full review!
This past weekend's 'SNL' turn with Drake at the helm proved to be surprisingly effective, doubly so given all the new talent on display. But will 2014 continue on the same hot streak when 'The Wolf of Wall Street' star Jonah Hill makes his third hosting run, accompanied by musical guest Bastille? Find out in the first official profanity-laden promos for this coming weekend's all-new 'SNL'!
