The LEGO Movie is a project that consists entirely of inspired ideas, but casting the gravelly-voiced Will Arnett as Batman is probably in the top five. With the character’s spin-off in the works, the inspired casting continues! It seems that the soft-spoken Michael Cera is set voice Robin in LEGO Batman.

Michael Cera is a busy guy, but while the indie mainstay and 'Arrested Development' star hit up the 'Late Show' last night to chat about his literal theatrics, host David Letterman was way more interested in extracurricular activities, like the actor's new German girlfriend and his trip to visit a giant basket.

Seth Rogen's Animated 'Sausage Party' Casts James Franco, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig and More

The last we saw Seth Rogen, James Franco and Jonah HIll onscreen together was in 'This Is the End,' but the trio won't wait long to reunite as they're already planning one big, R-rated 'Sausage Party.' Yes, it sounds like something one of your bros would say while funneling some PBR at a frat party, but this is in fact the title of Rogen's upcoming animated movie. Funny enough, the recently announced voice cast for the film is also a bit of a sausage fest.

'Drunk History': Comedy Central Show to Feature Kristen Wiig, Jack Black and Many More

by Kevin Fitzpatrick June 6, 2013 @ 12:55 PM
The moment we heard Comedy Central would take Will Ferrell's Funny Or Die web series 'Drunk History' to TV, we knew we'd be in for a cavalcade of celebrity guest stars, but perhaps not this many. The network has officially set a July 9 premiere for the web-adapted reenactment series, amid a mammoth list of guest stars that includes everyone from 'SNL' vet Kristen Wiig to Winona Ryder and 'The Internship''s Owen Wilson, and that's just to start.

'Magic Magic' Review

by Jordan Hoffman January 28, 2013 @ 8:40 AM
I have a theory that I should probably run by an evolutionary psychologist (an actual field of study). I think we have so many people with emotional problems because our brains have not yet adapted our early fight-or-flight responses to the conditions of the modern world. This disconnect between the biological and the environmental is, in my extremely uninformed opinion, why you have people who crack on the Maury Povich show when they see balloons or something.
We can act like tough guys if we want, but we all experience irrational paranoia. Not all of us collapse like Juno Temple's Alicia in Sebastian Silver's quite extraordinary film workout 'Magic Magic.' The film opens with young Temple visiting her cousin (Emily Browning) and her cousin's friends in Chile. It's her first time out of the country, and her shyness and inexperience manifests in odd ways. (I've never seen someone shower in such a unique position before.)
