We've seen more than a few post-'SNL' TV vehicles for Will Forte fall apart, but FOX seems to have finally given the 'Nebraska' star a shot. Forte will soon join fellow 'SNL' alum Andy Samberg on FOX, now that Forte's high-concept comedy 'Last Man on Earth' has been given a full series order.

Good Will Hunting: Talking ‘Nebraska’ With Will Forte, Who Might Be the Nicest Guy in Hollywood


Since leaving 'SNL' a few years ago, Will Forte has guest-starred on several TV shows (including a memorable turn as a drag queen on '30 Rock') and had roles in several comedies, including 'MacGruber' -- the movie based on his 'SNL' character, which has cultivated a cult following since its release in 2010. This Friday, audiences will get to see a very different side of the comedic actor in Alexander Payne's 'Nebraska,' a father-son road trip dramedy co-starring the legendary Bruce Dern. In the film, Forte plays David, an aimless stereo salesman who agrees to take his father, Woody, to Nebraska when the latter believes he's won prize money in a sweepstakes.

We had a chance to sit down with Forte to discuss the opportunity to work with Payne and Dern, reuniting with his 'Brothers Solomon' director Bob Odenkirk, and what's next for the 'MacGruber' star.

‘Bob’s Burgers’ Sends Jon Hamm’s Career Down the Toilet for Star-Studded Season 3

Bobs Burgers Season 3 Jon Hamm Guest Stars

Even as it heads into its third season beginning on Sunday September 30, it's easy for 'Bob's Burgers' to have slipped through the cracks when it comes to FOX animation, particularly with the choke-hold Seth MacFarlane seems to have.  Still, compounding the recent news of an 'Archer' cross-over with H. Jon Benjamin, 'Bob's Burgers' season 3 is easily going to grab your attention with guest stars like 'Mad Men's Jon Hamm, and a deluxe feast of others you need to see to believe.

Will Forte, Oscar Contender? Alexander Payne’s ‘Nebraska’ to Shoot Shortly

Ever since 1999's 'Election,' Alexander Payne's films have been like catnip to the Academy. 2002's 'About Schimdt' got two nominations, 2004's 'Sideways' got five nominations and last year's 'The Descendants' also got five. Payne himself has been nominated five times and has won twice. His next film, 'Nebraska' stars Will Forte and Bruce Dern. Mathematically, this means Forte could be an Oscar contender.

A while back we broke the news that director Jorma Taccone was talking about making a sequel to 'MacGruber.' Will Forte was recently at a press conference for 'That's My Boy' and suggested it would never happen. But now, now there's some hope of a 'MacGruber 2.'

A few weeks ago, ScreenCrush broke the news that 'MacGruber' director Jorma Taccone was interested in bringing his spectacularly mulleted comedy hero back to the big screen despite the first film massively underperforming (let's face it, bombing) at the box office. Yesterday, Jeremy Smith from Ain't It Cool News asked MacGruber himself, Will Forte, about the situation and he received a more realistic response.

Fear not, Will Forte!  Where once it seemed like all hope had been lost for Forte's post-'SNL' FOX series 'Rebounding,' it seems like the series might get another chance for a pickup.  FOX surprisingly passed on the series when it came time to announce its fall 2012 lineup, but which network might decided to pull the series out of the bin, and to pair it with what?

Exclusive: ‘MacGruber 2′ In the Works?

Universal Pictures

'MacGruber' didn't make much of an impact when it hit theaters back in 2010. In fact, the headline the morning after was "'MacGruber' Bombs." But a funny thing happened over the past two years: people realized 'MacGruber' is actually hilarious (seriously it is!) and the film developed a cult following.

And because of that devoted following, the unthinkable is happening: director Jorma Taccone and star Will Forte are developing a sequel.
