We’ve wondered for a few weeks now if SNL would appoint one or two hosts to finish out Season 41 beyond Room star Brie Larson’s turn this weekend, and the Views are officially in. Not only will Drake host the penultimate hour, SNL great Fred Armisen will lead the season finale.
Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has been busy Kimmy-fying the world in prep for her April 15 Season 2 return, and she won’t be alone. New photos from the season reveal the vast array of guest stars, including Jeff Goldblum, Tina Fey (in a new role), Anna Camp, and several more.
It took a couple of trailers before we were introduced to Krang, the fan-favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles villain who will make his big screen debut in Out of the Shadows. And while we’ve gotten a sneak peek at the squishy pink baddie, we haven’t heard him speak just yet. For those curious about what Krang will sound like in the upcoming sequel, look no further than former SNL star Fred Armisen.
The late, great David Bowie inspired countless artists of all stripes during his time on planet Earth. As a musician, an actor, a personality, and an encapsulation of all things odd, weird and wonderful, he touched countless lives...including former SNL star Fred Armisen, who returned to the stage during last night's episode to pay homage to Bowie in the most appropriate way possible: by sharing a clip from his appearance on the show back in 1979.
Come a day, the weirdness of Portlandia will be behind us all, but let’s not go grey over Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s imminent departure just yet. Instead, let Fred do the greying with the full Portlandia Season 6 premiere, available to watch right now!
Fred and Carrie may never run short of Portlandia weirdness, if the full Season 6 trailer is any indication, and that’s fine by us. Surprisingly red-band in its own right, the latest sneak peek for our January premiere sees love flying in every direction, including Candace, Zoe Kravitz, and just plain Fred and Carrie.
Quietly under appreciated through 2014 came the first season of FXX’s Jay Baruchel-fronted Man Seeking Woman, a delightfully absurdist romp through the perils (and penis monsters) of dating. Those extremes aren’t getting any easier to swallow in the Season 2 red-band trailer, in which coal from Santa should be the least of your worries.
Six years in, we’re certainly no stranger to the weirdness of IFC’s Portlandia, but even Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein have to admit Season 6 will hit some uncharted territory. The first clip from the new season has arrived, along with some elegant key art of its 2016 premiere, as Fred and Carrie make an unexpected new connection.
Clearly the first article to make this joke, the dream of the ‘90s is officially dead, even in Portland. Or rather, it will be, as Portlandia stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein have decided to call it quits on the quirky IFC sketch comedy. Luckily, they gave us a bit of a heads-up.
When Lorne Michaels is producing a movie, it’s probably pretty easy to get a bunch of former and current SNL cast members to show up for cameo appearances. Michaels produced the upcoming indie comedy Staten Island Summer, which the trailer sells as a solid coming of age tale even without all those SNL cameos — though they probably won’t hurt.
