Over the past 40 years, Saturday Night Live has introduced some of the most memorable and hilarious characters to ever grace a television set, some of which VH1 Classic will begin revisiting today with its “SNL Rewind: 2015-1975 Mega Marathon.” From Chris Kattan‘s Mango to Kenan Thompson‘s DeAndre “What’s Up With That?” Cole, simply narrowing down a list of favorites is not an easy task.
After months of rumors, the all-female cast of the Ghostbusters reboot has been confirmed. With Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Saturday Night Live‘s Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, this movie will actually be the best thing that’s ever happened.
Following eight years on Saturday Night Live, Bill Hader is stepping out on his own with his first leading role in the Sundance hit, The Skeleton Twins, which opens nationwide in theaters on Sept. 19. In the film, Hader plays Milo, a depressed gay man who attempts suicide and later returns home to stay with his twin sister played by Kristen Wiig. The film is the first time the two have shared a screen since both appeared on SNL and the result is a mix of belly laughs, twisted humor, and tender moments only shared by two actors who have worked together for nearly a decade.
Will Ferrell‘s news will make your day, a new CoverGirl ad takes over social media, Sons of Anarchy ratings break records, and more of today’s First Dibs.
The holidays often call for “ugly” sweaters (or as the English politely put it, “Christmas jumpers”) and matching outfits with your siblings. It’s a season of festive garb you’ll likely regret years later, yet not one that excludes our favorite celebrities.
They wear awful dresses for you, selflessly plan your parties, listen to your jitters and endless discussion of seating arrangements and flowers — the people in your wedding party are generally awesome people. Why, then is Hollywood obsessed with making best men, bridesmaids and maids of honor disastrously terrible? Because it’s good fun. In honor of The Best Man Holiday’s release this week, we looked back at the original The Best Man, along with other favorite wedding movies from Bridesmaids to My Best Friend’s Wedding, to count our blessings that none of these people were in our own big day.
“I have every single episode of every season of every Star Trek,” True Blood/Pacific Rim star Rob Kazinski told VH1 News earlier this summer. “I have every movie. I have original artwork. I have costumes. I’m a big fat guy who loves star trek stuck in … um, this body.” Well, he didn’t exactly sound too guilty about his so-called “guilty pleasure,” and he’s just one of the many celebrities who were eager to reveal their love for literal and figurative junk food.
It’s barely been a year since Kristen Wiig left Saturday Night Live, but she returned last night to host the show. Expectations were high and Wiig lived up to them by bringing back her cadre of comedic characters-and by trying out some new stuff.
We are metaphorically riding unicorns past rainbows over this morning’s wonderful news that Kristen Wiig has officially joined the cast of Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Back in December, we heard rumors that she would be signing on to play a love interest to Steve Carell’s lovably dumb weatherman Brick Tamland, and though her role hasn’t been confirmed yet, Deadline is keeping that rumor up, saying she might play his wife.
Could this mean that Brick is going to have a bigger role than the occasional “I love lamp”-style one-liner? When we spoke to Carell last spring, he said he kind of hoped he wouldn’t. “I feel that Brick is best taken in small doses,” he said. “And I see it as an ensemble, aside from Will [Ferrell]. I hope it’s kind of the same setup as the first one.”
