There are a lot of intriguing things going on in '7 Days in Hell,' an original movie being produced for HBO. First of all, it's a sports comedy. Secondly, it's a mockumentary. Third, it's going to star the completely untested comedy duo of 'SNL' alum Andy Samberg and ... 'Game of Thrones' star Kit Harington?!
The guest list for season 4 of 'Girls' just keeps getting longer and more and more exciting. Maude Apatow, charming daughter of writer/director Judd Apatow and co-star of several of her father's films, has just been added to the 'Girls' season 4 roster as a guest star, reuniting with her 'This Is 40' co-star Lena Dunham.
Writer and director Joe Swanberg reunites with his 'Drinking Buddies' star Anna Kendrick for 'Happy Christmas,' an intimate indie dramedy in which Kendrick stars as a willfully regressive 27 year-old who moves in with her older brother and his wife, only to throw their world into (minor) upheaval. A charming counterpoint to popular man-child narratives, Swanberg's latest asks not for sympathy for its main character, but merely identification and a little empathy.
'Girls' season 4 has been busy with its guest casting of late, and where last season began with an appearance by a fan-favorite 'Orange Is the New Black' actress, the HBO dramedy is at it again. 'Orange' star Natasha Lyonne will break free of Litchfield to check in with Hannah on 'Girls' season 4, but as whom?
The list of 'Girls' season 4 guest stars is getting longer and longer, first with the announcement of 'Community' vet Gillian Jacobs, and now with fan-favorite 'American Horror Story' and 'Star Trek' star Zachary Quinto. The 'Heroes' actor will guest in an upcoming episode of the HBO Brooklyn dramedy, but as whom, you wonder?
It's not often that a fully planned and perfectly executed performance feels so very nonsensical, but that's exactly what happened when Sia came to 'Late Night with Seth Meyers' with a very special guest, Lena Dunham.
While we were excited for the last 'Girls' season 4 casting announcement of 'Community' vet Gillian Jacobs, it was somewhat tempered by the news that her stay might prove to be less permanent than we hoped. Though, the fourth year for HBO's Lena Dunham dramedy added another departing NBC vet for balance. 'Parenthood' vet Jason Ritter will put in a season 4 appearance for 'Girls,' as well, but as whom?
HBO proved a bit cagey in confirming that 'True Detective' had any involvement from Jessica Chastain, but another critically-acclaimed HBO series isn't hesitating to scoop up a fan-favorite actress. Fresh off the 'Community' cancellation, 'Girls' season 4 has added Gillian Jacobs to Britta Lena Dunham's life in a mysterious recurring role.
The 39th season of 'Saturday Night Live' is over. From the beginning, it was a strange season -- gone were so many of the show's powerful voices: Hader, Samberg, Wiig, Sudeikis, Armisen -- yet this allowed new voices to be heard. And that's the thing about being new on 'SNL': not everything is going to hit. But, in compiling this list of the ten best sketches from the 2013-2014 season, there were some tough choices to be made (sorry, 'Bugs'). And, sadly, for inclusion, the sketch had to have actually appeared on the live show (sorry, 'Wing').
And, yes, this list is heavy with prerecorded material as opposed to live performances. (Perhaps it's not completely fair to compare, but, this is a testament of just how strong the prerecorded sketches are in a post-'Digital Short' world.) And it's also notable that none of the best sketches were recurring sketches (though, I could see at least one of these coming back next season). So, behold: The ten best sketches from this past season of 'Saturday Night Live.'
Last night's 'Girls' season 3 finale "Two Plane Rides" proved far less polarizing than its predecessors, cementing the third year of HBO's Lena Dunham dramedy on a much more even keel overall. Now, as planning begins for an already-ordered fourth season of 'Girls,' executive producer Judd Apatow reveals that the episode order has been cut, while showrunner Jenni Konner has her own insights into the fourth season.
