Taran Killam

It’s Arnold v Taran in the ‘Why We’re Killing Gunther’ First Look
I am of the opinion that Arnold Schwarzenegger is currently making the most interesting movies of his career. Not necessarily the best or more satisfying on a visceral level; the most thoughtful, the most rich with themes and ideas, the most clearly made to comment upon and play with his image as the biggest action hero of the ’80s and ’90s. And while I really enjoy movies like Sabotage, Maggie, and Aftermath, they are much darker and more introspective films than Arnold used to make; in the last couple years, he hasn’t had much of a chance to flex his comedic muscles in exactly the same way.

SNL Wants ‘Game of Thrones’ to Get to the Good Stuff Already
By now you’re well-aware of the big twist on last week’s episode of Game of Thrones — thanks to tabloid reports and transparent deflections and flat-out lies from cast and crew alike, Jon Snow’s revival was probably the worst-kept secret in recent TV history. Still, fans had to sit through two of the most painful hours of the series before we finally got to what we all knew was coming. It’s okay, SNL feels your pain.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Joins Taran Killam’s Action Comedy
Arnold Schwarzenegger appearing in a new action film isn’t exactly surprising news, but it’s always exciting. But his latest project should make plenty of you (including ScreenCrush’s resident expert / #1 Arnold fan Matt Singer) quite happy, as the actor and former Governator has signed on to star in an action comedy that also happens to mark the directorial debut of SNL’s Taran Killam.
