This trailer for Masterminds, which teams Zach Galifianakis with Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess, claims it is “based on a true story.” And its Wikipedia page says basically the same thing; that this tale of blundering criminals is inspired by a 1997 robbery that took place in Charlotte North Carolina, where bandits stole over $17 million from the vault of an armored car company.

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.

A few weeks ago we saw the festival trailer for Welcome to Me, the new dramedy starring a bonkers Kristen Wiig (the best kind) winning the Lotto and getting her own talk show. Today brings the official trailer for the upcoming indie, which generated some positive buzz on the festival circuit, and now you can see why for yourself.

A few key members of the SNL cast and crew must love “The Californians” because the much-derided sketch was brought back to life for the show’s star-studded 40th anniversary special. For those of us who have always enjoyed this bizarre sketch (and there are about three of us), it’s a welcome return and we will greedily drink up the angry tears of everyone else.

If you’ve seen any of Sia’s music videos or performances, then you’re familiar with a few things: one, that she never shows her face. Two, that she’s been using ‘Dance Moms’ star Maddie Ziegler as her mini-dancing-me. And three, that her videos feature passionate, inventive dance moves. A Sia performance is a real treat, and the one she put on at the Grammys last night was particularly delightful, as former ‘SNL’ star Kristen Wiig joined Sia and Ziegler on stage for an energetic rendition of “Chandelier.”

Just when you thought Netflix’s ‘Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp’ miniseries couldn’t get any bigger, after a first teaser confirming the star-studded cast’s return, Camp Firewood might well explode. In addition to the many guest stars already joining the ranks, so too will Kristen Wiig, Chris Pine, Jon Hamm, and Jason Schwartzman buddy up for Netflix’s ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ revival.

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.

Maybe We Should Get Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader to Host the Golden Globes Next Year

EDIT
by Mike Sampson January 12, 2015 @ 8:39 AM
Besides a funny opening monologue, the 2015 Golden Globes were kinda...boring? Which is weird, because the Golden Globes are supposed to be a lot of things, but boring isn't one of them. Their entire existence is pretty much to be the boozy, irreverent cousin to the Oscars. But, next year hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler won't be back to host (their three-year contract ended this year) and based on this awards presentation, we think they should give Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader a chance.

‘SNL’ Scorecard: Amy Adams Sings and Dances Her Way Through Christmas And Dr. Evil

EDIT
by Mike Ryan December 21, 2014 @ 10:40 AM
The narrative surrounding ‘SNL’ for the last year and a half is that it’s a show that’s “rebuilding.” And, yes, last season, that was true. But it’s weird: That narrative is still lingering even though, for people paying attention (I tend to pay attention), this 40th season has been very, very good. Last year, ‘SNL’ relied way too much on in-the-moment pop culture references (never a good sign). This season—including what we saw again during Saturday night’s Amy Adams-hosted episode—was all about great writing and great execution. It wasn’t quite as consistent as last week’s Martin Freeman-hosted show, but ‘SNL,’ right now, has a lot of momentum headed into its winter break. (When it returns with Kevin Hart, I really hope we see a sequel to ‘Z-Shirt.’ Please make this happen, Tim Robinson.)
