The anniversary special well behind us, SNL Season 40 will draw to a close this coming weekend with Louis C.K. reclaiming the stage alongside Rihanna. The last few weeks have lost a bit of steam, but can the esteemed comedian bring us home? Find out with the first avenging promos of the SNL finale!
Last year saw IFC assembling a ridiculous collection of stars for the Funny or Die-produced Spoils of Babylon, and already the sequel is shaping up even bigger. Following Boardwalk Empire star Michael K. Williams’ cast as lead, The Spoils Before Dying has added new and returning stars the likes of Kristen Wiig, Will Ferrell, Haley Joel Osment and more.
Here’s something strange in the neighborhood: Deadline reports that Sony isn’t waiting for Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters reboot (with its cast of comedy all-stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon) to debut before planning additional Ghostbuster sequels or spinoffs. They’re already getting to work on what the trade describes as a “guy-themed” offshoot with an all-male cast.
SNL’s post-40th anniversary run got off to a slightly-bound start with 50 Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson this past weekend, but will Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth bring the hammer down? Check out the God of Thunder opposite Kate McKinnon in the first promos for this weekend’s latest SNL!
Since the news of an all-female 'Ghostbusters' was announced, we've all had lots of fun attempting to reverse-gender cast the film. Melissa McCarthy! Amy Poehler! Emma Stone!! All that speculation has come to an end. Director Paul Feig tweeted a picture of four women that serves as your an official reveal of the new 'Ghostbusters' cast.
There was no way ‘SNL’ was going to snag country music superstar Blake Shelton as a guest host and not do a country music video parody. After all, Shelton’s experience as a comedic performer is limited, but his experience in crooning songs about heartbreak and troubled times is not. So this brings us to a bizarre little song called ”Wishin’ Boot,” which is literally about a magical cowboy boot that shows up when people are in need and deliver exactly what they want.
Fact: everyone around the world who isn’t a pre-teen girl with particularly bad taste wishes that Justin Bieber would suddenly vanish from the face of the planet, so last night’s ‘SNL’ was doing God’s work when it decided to make vicious fun of the irritating singer’s new line of a Calvin Klein underwear commercials. Hopefully, the show has no plans to actually invite Bieber on the show anytime soon because there’s no way this doesn’t tick him off (and we love it so much for that).
This past weekend's latest 'SNL' with three-time host James Franco didn't quite bring anything new to the table, but will the series have better luck with fresh blood from Martin Freeman? The first promos for the 'Sherlock' star's guest turn have arrived, and don't worry, there's plenty of 'Hobbit' references and British-isms for everyone.
Angry Birds continues its world-wide domination, as the first ever 'Angry Birds' movie keeps on truckin' along, but here's a major new development! While last we heard the film would be ready for a 2016 release with some veteran animators at the helm, today brings our first look at these walkin', talkin', pig-hatin' birds as animated characters. Better still, we finally know who's going to be voicing them on the big screen!
Whether the 'SNL' shakeups of season 40 have truly come to a close or not, this Saturday will see 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and 'Parks and Recreation' star Chris Pratt kicking off the premiere in Star-Lord style. Feast your faces on seven-full minutes of promo goodness, as Chris Pratt takes the 'SNL' stage for the first time!
