A few weeks ago in advance of 'Parks and Recreation's Patton Oswalt-starring episode 'Article Two,' the internet received one of its greatest gifts yet as NBC released the full cut of Patton Oswalt's epic nerd rant about 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' and his own suggestions for introducing characters from the Marvel universe, and pop culture in general. Now, the comedian has offered up his thoughts on the origins of the now-legendary rant, including more pop culture tie-ins we didn't hear!
This Thursday, stand up comedian (and one of the funniest men alive) Patton Oswalt guest stars on NBC's beloved 'Parks and Recreation' as a Pawnee, Indiana citizen who attempts to block a city council vote with a lengthy filibuster. Asked to talk at length about whatever he wanted by the producers, Oswalt decided to rant about 'Star Wars Episode 7' and the results are bizarre and glorious as he spins off into 'The Avengers' and 'X-Men' and much much more. Check it out below.
The big buzz surrounding 'Parks and Recreation' this week stems from this Thursday's wedding event between Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott) and Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), somewhat strangely divided between this week and last week's "Emergency Response," but that isn't the only big Pawnee news. We've learned that recent 'Justified' and 'Portlandia' guest star Patton Oswalt will appear in a coming episode, directed by none other than Leslie Knope herself, Amy Poehler! Find out what brings Patton Oswalt to 'Parks and Recreation's Pawnee inside!
Sure we have to wait all the way until January 8 for 'Justified' to draw its fourth season premiere "Hole in the Wall," but that doesn't mean we can't sneak a peek beforehand! This season looks to be one of 'Justified's' biggest yet, with guest stars including the likes of Patton Oswalt and Ron Eldard, so will Timothy Olyphant's Raylan Givens be able to keep his nose out of trouble this time? Check out the first photos from the 'Justified' season 4 premiere for a clue!
Portland might be known for its weirdness, '90s-era quirk, and even entire professions devoted to putting birds on things, but with all the celebrities floating through, you'd think it'd be the next Hollywood. Regardless, IFC's 'Portlandia' has managed to obtain some impressive star power in its third season, including everyone from Fred Armisen's 'SNL' castmates, to comic everyman actor Patton Oswalt! Who else is on 'Portlandia' season 3's epic list of names, and when might we see them?
FX fans may bemoan that 'Sons of Anarchy's fifth season will soon come to an end, and that January seems like an awfully long time to wait for the fourth season of 'Justified,' but the cable network wants you to know they still love you. In advance of its January 13 premiere, 'Justified' season 4 has released the first official image of the season, highlighting our favorite gunslinger Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant), as well as his new pal to be played by comedian Patton Oswalt! Are you ready for a first look at 'Justified' season 4?
Well, alright then. Comedian Patton Oswalt's TV career definitely seems to be taking off to new heights, first with a recurring stint on FX's gunslinger drama 'Justified,' and now as we've learned, another recurring gig on HBO's Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom.' Oswalt isn't alone however, as Rosemary DeWitt has also been tasked for a recurring role, but who will the former 'United States of Tara' stars (yes, both) play?
Even with a premiere date of early 2013, we've still heard relatively little about the coming fourth season of FX's gunslinger drama 'Justified.' The Emmy-winning shooter will boast appearances from the likes of Patton Oswalt and Ron Eldard, with a few key roles yet to be cast, but what does show-runner Graham Yost have to say about it? And what of some of our favorite returning characters like Dickie Bennett or Dewey Crowe? What's on deck for 'Justified' season 4?
Well, pull us up a failure pile in a sadness bowl, Patton Oswalt is coming to 'Justified' season 4! All year long the word has felt curiously quiet on the fourth outing for our favorite FX gunslinger Raylan Givens, other than a few recent casting snippets, so we're glad that details are finally starting to emerge. But given the comedian's wide-range of characters on TV over the years, who might Oswalt be popping up as this time?
Patton Oswalt plays a slightly psychotic Boy Scout camp leader in 'Nature Calls,' which is just enough to get us interested. He joins Johnny Knoxville, Rob Riggle, Maura Tierney, and the late Patrice O'Neal in this R-Rated comedy, and this red band NSFW trailer sets the tone for the film's hijinks.
