The newest addition to the lineup of vocal talent to LEGO Batman is Rosario Dawson, lending her whip-smart speech to the film as Batgirl. She joins pre-existing cast members Zach Galifianakis as the Joker and Michael Cera as Robin (both sort of dementedly inspired choices, with Galifiankis’ volatility and Cera’s effete softness complementing the characters perfectly).

Now that HBO’s Deadwood finally seems on track for a feature follow-up, as well as the network’s overall trend of movie closure (see: Looking, Hello Ladies), one wonders what became of Jonathan Ames’ Bored to Death after its promised movie. Creator Jonathan Ames has plenty to keep him busy on Starz’s Blunt Talk, but could Bored to Death finally live again?

If you’re not particularly a fan of Jared Leto’s Joker aesthetic in Suicide Squad, then the latest Joker-centric news may put a smile on that face (sorry): Zach Galifianakis is in talks to join Will Arnett’s Batman and Michael Cera’s Robin in the LEGO Batman movie as the voice of the iconic clown prince.

‘Masterminds’ Trailer: Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig Are Hilariously Unlikely Bank Robbers

Back in March we saw the first teaser trailer for Masterminds, the new comedy from the director of Napoleon Dynamite, starring Kristen Wiig, Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson. That sounds like quite the lineup of comedic talent in a film that may very well redeem director Jared Hess after his follow-up films underperformed and were poorly-received by critics and audiences. The new, full trailer is quite promising, and even more promising are the writing credits: Eastbound and Down collaborators Jody Hill and Danny McBride.

‘Masterminds’ Trailer: Zach Galifianakis and the Director of ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ Team Up For a Crime Comedy

by Matt Singer March 31, 2015 @ 9:26 AM
This trailer for Masterminds, which teams Zach Galifianakis with Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess, claims it is “based on a true story.” And its Wikipedia page says basically the same thing; that this tale of blundering criminals is inspired by a 1997 robbery that took place in Charlotte North Carolina, where bandits stole over $17 million from the vault of an armored car company.

One of the many highlights from last night’s SNL 40th anniversary special was the moment when new cast members Pete Davidson and Leslie Jones took to the stage, introducing a montage of audition tapes from the past 40 years. Not only did the footage include new and former cast members, but we also got a peek at the audition tapes of a few stars who surprisingly didn’t make the cut, like Jim Carrey and Kevin Hart.

Merciful Zeus, if you thought Eddie Murphy returning to ‘SNL’ after 31 years for the 40th anniversary special on February 15 was big enough, wait until you get a load of the full roster.
