RIP Ken Ober

Monday, November 16 by

Comedian/actor/game-show host Ken Ober has passed away. At first the news was dismissed as rumor but now reports are coming in that the 52 year old died from a heart attack over the weekend. Best known as the creator and host of MTV's late 1980s game-show Remote Control, Ober worked in recent years as a producer/writer for New Adventures of Old Christine, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, and Mind of Mencia.Having had the good fortune of working for Ken a few years back I can attest to his kindness and class. Rest in peace, Ken. You were always sweet and supportive. Television and I are better for having known you. (NY Times)

Courtney Cox Might Probably Know Something About ‘Scream 4′ Plot

Monday, November 16 by

Watch out, it's a trite storyline!Courtney Cox (it pains me to type it) Arquette is definitely going to be in the Scream 4 sequel directed by Wes Craven, and she's definitely certain it's going to be about the characters we know from the other movies."There are really only a few of us that survived," Cox said, but she shrugged off rumors that her character, Gale Weathers, and Arquette's Dwight "Dewey" Riley will be killed off at the beginning of the film."They're probably back living in Woodsboro," Cox added, "I think that he's probably still deputy, and I've had a lot of kids. I don't know. I'm probably miserable, and then I'm sure a lot of murdering will happen."Sorry I didn't warn you about the spoilers. Murdering is going to happen, and Gale Weathers may or may not have a lot of kids. And David Arquette may still be retarded. It remains to be seen what they'll do with his character Dewey. ZING!

‘The League’ Actress Nadine Velazquez

Monday, November 16 by

Nadine Velazquez is probably most recognizable for her role as Catalina, the motel maid, on My Name is Earl. Now she plays Sophia on The League, where her character's breasts are too big after just having a child. Buuuuuuh. You can see her fondling them in episode 2. Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh.  A word from Nadine: "I wake up with stripper boots on sometimes."That probably means you went to bed with stripper boots on… Which means you were probably stripping the night before… I used my powers of deduction to surmise that you dance naked! What club, please? Nadine's got those "stripper eyes" in the pics after the jump.

10 of the Best Corrupt Movie Cops

Monday, November 16 by

Why in God's name did they make Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans? It's not as if there's a huge fan base clamoring for a follow up to the original Bad Lieutenant. And fans of the original aren't exactly going to be thrilled to see their cult classic re-imaged as a Nicolas Cage vehicle. While we're at it, let's make Harold and Maude: Miami Heat  or Eraserhead: Surreal in Sacramento. Even the director, Werner Herzog, wanted to change the title. After all, when you're making a movie about a crooked cop, you probably don't need a marketing ploy. Many films depicting good cops gone bad have gone on to become classics. Here are 10 of the greatest "dirty cop" films of all time. Dirty Harry – The Dirty Harry Series

‘Couples Retreat’ UK Poster Hates Black People

Monday, November 16 by

The producers of Couples Retreat are coming under criticism for the UK version of the film's poster. Have a look at the above side-by-side comparison and you'll notice that Faizon Love and and Kali Hawk (the only black characters) have disappeared a la Marty McFly's siblings.The Daily Mail spoke with the studio and received this explanation:The studio said it regretted causing offence and has abandoned plans to use the revised poster in other countries… A Universal spokesman said the revised advert aimed ‘to simplify the poster to actors who are most recognisable in international markets’.Makes sense to me. Not everyone is as familiar with Who's Your Caddy? as I am. However I'm not convinced that this edit isn't fulfilling a racist agenda. Have a look at the below comparison of the US and the UK versions of The Original Kings Of Comedy poster. Racialists!! (Daily Mail)

Will Reiser To Write ‘Young@Heart’

Monday, November 16 by

Wilford Brimley, warm up your golden pipes. In 2007, Working Title bought the rights to the documentary Young@Heart. It tells the tale of an elderly choir who sing hits by newfangled rocking and rolling groups like The Clash, Coldplay, and the Ramones. Now, Will Reiser (writer of the upcoming I'm With Cancer) has been hired to pen a narrative remake of the doc. You can check out the trailer for the documentary below. I'll save you some time by describing it in two words: Oldz Bop. (THR)

Start Growing Your Mustache, ‘Super Troopers 2′ is Lightin’ Em Up

Saturday, November 14 by

The Broken Lizard guys are looking to pin their badges back on and hit the highway again. According to Jay Chandrasehkar, the leader of the pack,"We have the financing, so we're going to try to make a deal with Fox." Steve Lemme adds that they're "three drafts into it" and that they're much better off going to a studio with financing already setup. "It's a great thing to go to a studio and say, 'We have the money.'"Money is definitely a good thing. It helps the whole movie making process move more quickly. But Broken Lizard has had quite a few bombs lately, so we'll see if this project actually comes to fruition. If it does though, Brian Cox will be back whipping the wily officers into shape, and probably drinking while doing it. (FirstShowing)

Brett Ratner the Actor Even Creepier than Brett Ratner the Director

Friday, November 13 by

It's Friday the 13th. We had to show you something scary.If you were under the impression that director and Bagel Bites Eating Champ Brett Ratner is a talentless hack, you've got it all wrong. Not only has he directed some of the biggest movies of all time, but he'd also make for a great leading man. Don't believe me? Check out the hilariously creepy Ratner Films. I think you'll come 'round to my side of the fence.Oh yes, the me being pantless thing? Sorry about that. I don't get a lot of visitors on this side of the fence.

Kevin Williamson Peers Through ‘The Bedroom Window’

Friday, November 13 by

MTV caught up with Kevin Williamson to discuss one of his many projects. The busy writer talked about his update of Curtis Hanson's The Bedroom Window (which he is slated to make between Scream 4 and 5). The original The Bedroom Window was based on the book The Witnesses by Anne Holden. In Williamson's version, a man is sleeping with his boss's wife. One night after a little bump and grind, she witnesses a murder outside his bedroom window. Because their relationship has to be kept on low, the man steps in and acts as a witness to the murder. Soon the killer is on his tail. Sounds sexy and suspenseful but there's only one man who can handle this kind of drama. Paging R. Kelly. (MTV)

‘Women in Trouble’ Actress Marley Shelton

Friday, November 13 by

Forget about all the other stuff Marley Shelton has done, most importantly she was the hot lifeguard Wendy Peffercorn in the awesome movie The Sandlot. That film taught me to NEVER hit a ball over into James Earl Jones' yard. He'll rape you, kill you, and bury you in the crawl space in his basement. Wait, that's the The Sandlot, right?   A word from Marley: "See how fast my friends work…….you'll never see me again……"Marley must hang out with a rogue band of sorcerers and magicians. That's a rough group, let me tell you. I never messed with those guys in high school. Their lunch table always smelt like burnt hair.I bet Marley smells like roses in the pics after the jump. 

‘Grown Ups’ Teaser Trailer Not Appealing to Grown Ups

Friday, November 13 by

We're making money right now. Hahahaha! Adam Sandler and the rest of his friends are starring in the movie Grown Ups, adapted from a Dockers commercial. I'm sure a lot will get lost in translation though, like the humor, so we'll have to watch a bunch of formerly hilarious comedians fishing instead of personable model-types. In all honesty though, why the hell wouldn't this group make this movie? They're guaranteed sh*tloads of benjamins, and they get to hang out, laugh, and swing from ropes all day. Sure, Chris Farley is throwing a tantrum in heaven over the sight of Kevin James playing a role clearly intended for him, but I think we all know digitally placing him in the film wouldn't have worked out any better. The ground breaking concept of Grown Ups is about five good friends reuniting for a Fourth of July holiday weekend thirty years after their high school graduation. No, it's not The Big Chill. I know, but no. Check out the teaser trailer after the jump.
