At long last, it's time to meet the cast of Disney's first animated Marvel movie, 'Big Hero 6,' and see these new characters come to life in six new images. Where previously we saw some unapproved posters for this new crop of unlikely superheroes (since taken down from the web), the cast is now here in beautiful hi-res and ready to kick some San Fransokyo butt!
The idea behind 'Big Hero 6,' Walt Disney's first animated Marvel movie since they acquired the home of The Avengers, is an exciting prospect, one that we've been tracking for some time. While the full cast is still to be announced, today brings our first look at this new team of superheroes through unofficial movie posters.
On last night's inaugural 'The Maya Rudolph Show,' host Maya Rudolph unveiled The Garmyns, an all-American family made wealthy and happy by the voice skills of both Mama and Papa Garmyn (Rudolph and Fred Armisen). They've certainly earned their GPS wealth, but it sure seems as if they've taken their work home -- no, really. What happens when the Garmyns meet their future son-in-law (Andy Samberg)? Just a lot of recalculating.
Seth Meyers essentially unleashed the creative floodgates of his former 'SNL' brethren with his 'Second Chance Theatre.' The host unveiled the new segment on 'Late Night' earlier this week, thanks to the instant classic that was Will Forte's 'Jennjamin Franklin,' his favorite sketch that never made it to the 'SNL' screen but got new life when Meyers let Forte and friends perform it on the 'Late Night' stage.
Maya Rudolph is really good at a lot of things -- stuff she gets to do professionally, which is awesome for both her and us -- but she's also deeply terrible at a wide variety of skills, like giving some 'Tonight Show'-branded 'Unqualified Advice' to fans looking for some practical and financially minded advice.
Since Disney acquired Marvel Studios, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been blown sky high, and it's about time both the superhero movie engine and the animation department combined forces to create Disney's first animated Marvel movie, 'Big Hero 6.' Casting has been slowly underway to fill out the leads, and now former 'SNL' funnygal and 'Bridesmaids' star Maya Rudolph has been thrown in the mix.
Stephen Colbert might have dominated the late-night landscape with the announcement of his succession to 'Late Show' host David Letterman, but NBC has stolen back a bit of thunder with help from 'SNL' veteran Maya Rudolph. The network has officially scheduled 'The Maya Rudolph Show' variety special for a late May premiere, with guests such as 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' star Andy Samberg, Kristen Bell and more, but what are the chances of an ongoing series?
What, you thought Jonah Hill's third hosting gig was the 'SNL' news of the day? Nope! At long last, after a heated controversy and a nationwide search, the long-running NBC sketch comedy series has found its newest black female cast member in Upright Citizen's Brigade veteran Sasheer Zamata.
It's been a good long while since we've heard from revered 'SNL' alum Maya Rudolph, following the dissolution of the much-maligned 'Up All Night,' but it seems the sought-after 'Bridesmaids' star may end up back on the NBC stage after all. Sources report that Rudolph has committed to a new NBC variety special, which could well become its own series if successful.
"Marky Mark and the Fun Bunch." Precisely how Maya Rudolph came to incorrectly remember the name of Mark Wahlberg’s former music group is just one of the highlights of this great interview with her and Sam Rockwell, the two stars of 'The Way, Way Back,' the directorial debut of the writing team of Nat Faxon and Jim Rash. In the film, Rockwell and Rudolph play employees of a water park who help an awkward kid overcome some of his insecurities while he’s on vacation with his mother and her new, authoritative boyfriend. As a counterpoint to his oddly more dysfunctional domestic situation, the pair provide a stabilizing if unconventional influence on the boy, even if they aren’t quite funky.
