HBO will shed an impressive amount of its programming over the course of 2014, airing final seasons of 'True Blood,' 'The Newsroom' and 'Boardwalk Empire,' atop the cancellations of 'Family Tree' and 'Hello Ladies,' so it isn't a surprise to see a star-studded pilot getting the fast track. To that end, HBO's Jay Roach-directed geopolitical comedy 'The Brink,' starring Jack Black and Tim Robbins, has already been given a series order.
And lo, the tenure of 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' has come to an end once again, leaving Jay to walk off into that darling sunset with Jimmy Fallon waiting in the wings and a bitter Conan O'Brien making the only jokes. Jay's first-ever guest Billy Crystal joined the late-night host last night to bookend the run, bringing with him a cavalcade of guest stars to send Jay off in style before the big man himself finally said goodbye!
Jack Black and Tim Robbins may not be the box-office draws they once were, but could they pull in the HBO crowd? We'll find out, as the premium cable network has recruited the duo to headline a new dark comedy pilot from director Jay Roach, taking the world of geopolitical crises to 'The Brink'!
Strange to think that 'School of Rock' came out 10 years ago, but looking at these pictures of cast members reunited, there's no denying a decade has passed.
Late night talk shows are full of celebrities pimping their latest projects, so it's always a relief when a guest shows up with something special. To wit: Here's Jack Black on a recent episode of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!,' debuting a "sizzle reel" from his fake 'Teen Wolf' sequel, 'Adult Wolf.'
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.
Bold words to be certain, but is the nostalgia that so many loved from Judd Apatow's cancelled cult comedy 'Freaks and Geeks' about to make a return? If FX and Jack Black have their way, it just might. We've just learned that the cable network has struck a deal with the acerbic funnyman's production company to produce a military school coming-of-age project set in the '80s, but will it live up to the hype? And who else is involved?
