A joke ten years in the making, last night Jimmy Kimmel fans were in for a treat as the oft-put upon Matt Damon finally got his revenge on the late-night host. No longer would Kimmel close his every 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' broadcast with "apologies to Matt Damon," but rather the prolific movie star duct-taped Kimmel to a chair and took over the program from the beginning. Along with a host of guest stars including Robin Williams and Ben Affleck, check out Damon's take-over of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' inside!
Around the time I saw the new Ethan Hawke-led horror film, 'Sinister' -- a film a lot of critics seem to like, and, at the most begrudgingly, a film that I wish were better, if that makes sense, as it has some smart things in it -- I was cleaning out my desk in a fit of procrastination. Among the USB keys of Alexandria and product registration cards was a Kodax Max camera, six of its 27 pictures used, its bright disposable body either shining yellow or solid utilitarian black, with a "Develop before 09/2005" emblazoned on it. And while it wasn't a series of reels of Super-8 being dropped off by an elder God who feeds on both story and sorrow as in 'Sinister,' that Kodak Max camera out of nowhere did make me turn my head and ask: Hmm, what's on you?
Could Mork be headed back to Earth? It seems Robin Williams' bite from the TV acting bug might have been bigger than his recent 'Louie' and 'Wilfred' appearances, as the legendary funnyman may have his eye on a new gig at CBS. But what could have lured Williams back to a regular role after over 30 years off the tube, and why does the project have 'Mad Men's Don Draper feeling a shiver up his spine?
'The Big Wedding' brings us the same funky family dynamic that comes with throwing together a wedding.
"Where has Robin Williams been?" is a question most of you probably ask your relatives and church leaders right after posing the question, "Where has Shirley MacLaine been?" Now you can rest easy knowing that both of these fine actors are still around and have signed on to a brand new ensemble comedy.
Robin Williams is an actor with two modes. He can be undeniably brilliant, a subtle, nuanced performer with a knack for portraying desperate loneliness and sadness. More often, he's extremely loud, mind-meltingly obnoxious and does a lot of zany voices for reasons that don't make much sense outside of the fact that Williams likes to do zany voices. So, which side of Williams are we going to see in 'The Angriest Man in Brooklyn'?
