When Saturday Night Live launches its 39th season tonight with host Tina Fey and musical guest Arcade Fire, viewers who haven’t been paying attention to the trades over the summer will notice that a few familiar faces are no longer treading the boards of Studio 8H; longtime (and very popular!) castmembers Fred Armisen, Bill Hader and Jason Sudeikis have all exited the cast* for purportedly greener pastures. Taking their place are six new faces, making it the biggest cast transition since 1995. So, who exactly are these new featured players? Find out all about them in our gallery above!
It must be really hard for celebrities to have their break ups splashed on gossip sites (like this one), but it probably isn’t hard to rebound with another famous hottie. I mean, when most of us are nursing a broken heart, all we get to do is shoot some tequila and make out with the least ugly single person we can find in a dive bar. When celebrities are on the rebound they have their pick of the litter: supermodels, movie stars, back-up dancers and the grown up children of other gorgeous celebrities.
Plus, check out the new trailer for season four of The Walking Dead. What did Zac Efron have to say to his fans post-rehab? And what are critics saying about Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s Don Jon?
Mindy Kaling refuses to be marginalized, Khloe Kardashian makes a telling change to her Twitter profile, and two hot stars go up against animated fare at this weekend’s box office.
Grab your mom, pop up some popcorn, and get ready to enjoy a flick that’s all about porn. On the surface, Don Jon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s full-length directorial debut, is about a Jersey boy who views women as objects whose sole purpose is to get him off. But underneath all that almost-nudity is a smart comedy that examines how media shapes our expectations and provides an escape from our everyday lives. With porn.
If you missed Wednesday’s Very VH1 Spreecast with Wire and Treme vet Wendell Pierce, today is your lucky day. The co-star of NBC’s brand new The Michael J. Fox Show, which premiered last night, was born and raised in NOLA, the epicenter of the twerking phenomenon. We couldn’t resist asking him what he thought of this craze going national, but we were totally surprised (and delighted!) by his colorful and scholarly remarks on the subject.
At the Emmys this past Sunday, Daily Show correspondent John Oliver said what everyone was surely thinking: that we’d all rather be home watching the second to last episode of Breaking Bad. Now just a few days separate us from the final 60 minutes of Vince Gilligan‘s masterpiece, a show more addictive than the pure meth its main character sells. Every fan has a theory about how it is all going to end (including the author of this here post), and so we asked famous fans walking the Emmys red carpet to predict what happens to Walt and Jesse. Their theories gave us the chills – watch and freak out to the video above and share your predictions in the comments.
[And yes - there are spoilers. Come on now, people.]
Oh Gwyneth. You know how to push our buttons and make us question our love for you. How you love to prod us with your snug ways and GOOP-y self. Oh, how you make us Tina Fey eye roll, especially in the 40th year of your life. We know it’s your birthday (p.s. happy 41st birthday) but you torture us so… Read more…
We feel so lucky to live in this era of comedy where the hot chicks aren’t relegated to sitting in the corner and looking pretty while the boys get all the funny bits. Instead, ladies like Anna Camp get to deliver jokes, throw themselves into slapstick and have real dialogue — while still looking foxy as hell. That’s probably why we have a feeling that Anna and us would make great friends. She would give us hair advice, get the cute boys to come to our tables and still be willing to get onstage to sing the entire TLC catalog with us at our bachelorette party. She’s just totally game for things like that. Or, well, here are things she’s done to make us think so:
What will Meryl Streep look like as the Witch in Into The Woods? Which celebrity makes Natalie Portman freak out? And royal enthusiasts can finally get their first look at the new Princess Diana biopic.
