The moment we heard Comedy Central would take Will Ferrell's Funny Or Die web series 'Drunk History' to TV, we knew we'd be in for a cavalcade of celebrity guest stars, but perhaps not this many. The network has officially set a July 9 premiere for the web-adapted reenactment series, amid a mammoth list of guest stars that includes everyone from 'SNL' vet Kristen Wiig to Winona Ryder and 'The Internship''s Owen Wilson, and that's just to start.
My oh my, and we thought Will Ferrell's upcoming miniseries 'The Spoils of Babylon' had enough star power between Ferrell himself, 'SNL' alum Kristen Wiig, 'The Great Gatsby''s Tobey Maguire and Haley Joel Osment. Now IFC has announced the full cast, including some new, big-name additions!
Kristen Wiig may have killed it with her big 'SNL' return this past weekend, but her next role will be all about the protect and serve. The 'SNL' vet and 'Anchorman 2' star will next lend her voice to yet another episode of 'The Simpsons,' appearing as a mysterious FBI agent helping Lisa, but what suspicious Springfield activity could bring Wiig back to the booth? Preview Kristen Wiig's next 'Simpsons' appearance inside!
Is there a recurring SNL sketch more divisive than "The Californians"? For everyone who loves it, there is someone else who thinks it's one of the worst things to ever happen to the show. The latest edition won't change any minds, but the return of Kristen Wiig does make it a little more special than the past couple of times they've trotted it out.
Although SNL is known for frequently pushing the boundaries of good taste, it tends to favor comedy of the sexual and political nature above anything else. That's why a certain sketch on last night's Kristen Wiig-hosted episode proved to be a massive shock -- it's not every day that the longrunning comedy variety show gets violent.
The return of Kristen Wiig to the SNL stage meant the resurrection of several great characters, including the Target Lady, her role on The Californians and, of course, Kat of "Garth and Kat" fame. The world's worst musical duo made an appearance on Weekend Update and it was as funny as it has ever been.
Since it's produced so quickly, SNL will never not take advantage of any holiday that arrives near its air date. That meant that last night's episode saw a handful of mom-themed sketches in honor of Mother's Day! The first of them was a great fake commercial for a flower delivery service starring the terrific Kristen Wiig. Check it out below.
The great Kristen Wiig returned to host SNL this week, giving the show an opportunity to resurrect all of the characters that vanished from show since her departure a year ago. Although many great characters came back, none were quite as exciting as the return of Target Lady, one of the most popular characters in all of modern SNL.
'SNL's' past weekend with 'The Hangover 3' star Zach Galifianakis might not have turned out to be as much of a sure thing as we might have liked, but here's hoping the writers saved their A-material for former castmate Kristen Wiig! She will return to the 'SNL' stage for her first turn as host with musical guest Vampire Weekend, but does the 'Anchorman 2' star's first promos have that old magic back? Get a first look at Kristen Wiig's return to 'SNL' inside!
