The sitcom is, and always shall be, an ever-changing art. There exists no perfect formula for success between various three-camera and single-camera efforts over the years. While some may bemoan the heightened situations and laugh tracks of a three-camera outing like the modern 'Big Bang Theory,' others remember how 'Cheers' and 'Seinfeld' among others perfected the format. So according to a recent '60 Minutes' poll, what's the greatest sitcom of all time? Is it as funny as a bag of airline peanuts?
Though he's played Batman and Beetlejuice, it feels like Michael Keaton's in some form of semi-retirement. Throughout the 80's and 90's he would show up in movie and usually be great in them, even if the material wasn't up to snuff, but for much of the last ten years he's been scarce. Recently, he had a great supporting performance in 'Toy Story 3' and then a juicy role in 'The Other Guys.' Now he's going to be in Larry David's upcoming movie.
'Curb Your Enthusiasm' star Larry David has flirted with the big screen. He directed 'Sour Grapes,' which was released in 1998 to little fanfare, and appeared as the Woody Allen surrogate in 2009's 'Whatever Works.' He even recently appeared in the Farrelly brothers 'The Three Stooges.' But it looks like he's bringing his thing to the big screen as a leading man under the direction of Greg Mottola.
