Despite 'SNL' heading into its landmark 40th season (and shedding a few players in the process), things have been curiously quiet on the front of NBC's beloved sketch comedy show, particularly with regard to its initial hosts. Now, the network confirms that 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and 'Parks and Recreation' star Chris Pratt will host the September 27 premiere with musical guest Ariana Grande, preceding comedian Sarah Silverman, while rumors suggest legendary alum Bill Murray will follow!
Director Richard Linklater recently impressed with 'Boyhood,' the incredible movie that took the filmmaker 12 years to make. But one of his next projects is decidedly much different: a remake of 'The Incredible Mr. Limpet,' with Zach Galifianakis filling the funny shoes of Don Knotts in the title role. The project is drawing boatloads of talent, including Jon Hamm, Sarah Silverman, Josh Gad, and many more.
It's hard to not find something to admire about the new 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' trailer. After all, director/star Seth MacFarlane could have rode the massive success of 'Ted' down far more accessible and surefire avenues, but nope, here he is, making an uber-violent western comedy. Even if you don't find his sense of humor humor amusing, you've got to cut him some slack for stepping far outside of Hollywood's comfort zone.
FX's ‘Louie’’s finally returns from hiatus for its season 4 double-premiere "Back" and "Model," the first half of which sees Louie dealing with a few problems of his advancing age, while the second installment finds the sadsack comedian bombing at a benefit, only to rebound with a beautiful model before things go terribly wrong..
Last season’s ‘Louie’ finale “New Years Eve” saw Louie celebrating Christmas with his daughters, until his New Year's loneliness and an invitation from his sister (Amy Poehler) end up taking him to strange new places. So how do "Back" and "Model” begin the cycle of misery anew?
Read on for your in-depth recap of everything you need to know about ‘Louie’ season 4 premieres, “Back” and "Model"!
We were already well enamored with Showtime's 'Masters of Sex' to begin with, let alone that 'Breaking Bad' star Betsy Brandt joined the season 2 cast, while the newest run bumped up to a summer premiere. Now, the universally beloved Sarah Silverman boards 'Masters of Sex' season 2 in a recurring role, but who will the comedian portray?
Every year the networks (and particularly NBC) manage to let a few clunkers through the pilot process, occasionally leaving behind some surprising entries. Case in point, did you know Sarah Silverman filmed an NBC pilot for 'Susan 313' last year, getting surprisingly nude by broadcast standards and throwing in a Jeff Goldblum cameo for good measure? See for yourself in the full unreleased pilot!
HBO comedies tend to vary in quality, with recent offerings like 'Hello Ladies' coming nowhere near the success of 'Veep' or 'Girls,' but the latest might just turn a few heads. Former 'That '70s Show' star Topher Grace and comedian Sarah Silverman have been chosen to lead 'SNL' creator Lorne Michaels' new HBO venture, 'People in New Jersey,' but what's it all about?
Bittersweet though it may be, 'Futurama' will finally return tonight for the first of the final 13 episodes, beginning with "Fry and Leela's Big Fling." While we've learned of some impressive genre guest stars to debut in the coming weeks, most surprising of all is that 'Family Guy' creator Seth MacFarlane will lend his voice to the futuristic animated comedy, and you'll never guess as whom!
Just weeks after HBO aired one of its most successful stand-up specials to date in comedian Louis C.K.'s 'Oh My God,' the pay-cable network has announced another high-profile special to feature an equally revered comedian. Sarah Silverman will officially headline her first HBO special with 'Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles,' but when will the hotly anticipated special premiere?
Movies allow us to experience life through another person's eyes. Video games allow us to experience life through another person's eyes -- and to control their decisions. We spend hours upon hours with these video game characters, until we feel like we know them; Mario, Sonic, Pac-Man, their adventures are so memorable, and their personalities so vivid that they almost seem alive. But of course their adventures and their personalities are all predetermined by programming, and they remain forever trapped by their unbreakable directives. If these characters weren't just a series of electronic impulses and computer code, it would be a tragic existence.
That, essentially, is the premise of 'Wreck-It Ralph,' a manic children's film about the souls of video game avatars. Made by Disney, it greatly resembles the premise of Disney's (and Pixar's) modern classic 'Toy Story,' in which toys are revealed to have lives and thoughts of their own when no one's around to play with them. Here we learn that when a suburban arcade shuts down for the night, the characters inside all the games cross over into each other's universes to socialize.
