Broad City has never lacked for guest stars each year, and now that Season 4 production has finally gotten underway, our first is a real eyeful. Yes, Steve Buscemi is off the Boardwalk and out on the town for Broad City, as revealed in a new Season 4 production photo.

Louis C.K. knew the risks of self-distributing his Horace and Pete TV series, incurring at least some debt before the star-studded dramedy would turn a profit. And while the series may not have taken in the kind of award recognition many hoped, Horace and Pete is finally streaming in a traditional model on Hulu.
Louis C.K.’s self-financed series got the wrong kind of attention with offhand remarks that he’d gone into debt, though the Louie creator was quick to correct that the investment would eventually pay off, particularly with sale to an official outlet.

You can read my full review here, but here’s the tl;dr version: It’s funny and awesome.
FX’s Louie may be on extended hiatus, but Louis C.K. himself is taking no breaks. The revered comedian surprisingly released the first episode of a new Cheers-type comedy over the weekend, Horace and Pete, starring the likes of Steve Buscemi, Alan Alda, Jessica Lange and more.

The first reviews of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ are out and most are pretty mixed on the film and whether or not it delivers on the white-hot sexuality of the original novel. But here is one film that absolutely brings the raw animal magnetism: ‘Fifty Shades of Buscemi,’ a mashup that inserts the great star of ‘Boardwalk Empire,’ ‘Fargo,’ and so many more into new film opposite star Dakota Johnson.
