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!
'This is the End' got an early jump on April Fool's Day by releasing a fake trailer for 'Pinapple Express 2,' but that was all a build-up to the latest trailer for the movie, which is NSFW, filthy and filled with violence. It's also pretty great.
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.
Really, Anna Kendrick? You're going to follow up 'Pitch Perfect' with something called 'Rapturepalooza'? Well, I suppose we saw something like this coming, and perhaps it's not all bad. We were just thrown a bit by the immediate 'Scary Movie' vibe we got from the latest red-band trailer.
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!
Though the film was not the runaway hit hoped for when released in 2010, 'Hot Tub Time Machine' has proved popular enough on home video that MGM is exploring making a sequel to the time-travel comedy. And right now they're talking to everyone but star John Cusack.
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?
Just because 'The Office' will officially come to an end after nine seasons by the end of the year doesn't mean you won't still be seeing the Dunder-Mifflin crew on TV. No, we're not talking about 'The Farm,' 'The Mindy Project,' or even Angela Kinsey's new FOX comedy. Instead' breakout star Craig Robinson will finally get his due when 'The Office' creator Greg Daniels develops a new NBC sitcom around him! But what role will the loveable 'Hot Tub Time Machine' star play?
