2011 was a pretty good year for comedy in film. A comedy won Best Picture at the Oscars (which almost never happens), a comedy featuring a mostly-female ensemble did well…
The film known for its catchphrase, "Extra anchovies!" Randy (Patrick Dempsey) has the unenviable task of maneuvering through congested traffic, working for crummy tips, and bedding lonely housewives, all…
Crime doesn’t pay… especially if you’re an idiot.
Aziz Ansari and Animated Gifs: Together at last…
Dilshad Vadsaria appears in ’30 Minutes or Less’, playing sister to Aziz Ansari.
These apes won’t rise.
Given the willingness of so many media figures to blame Hollywood, it’s probably only a matter of time.
Director: Ruben Fleischer Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Danny McBride, Nick Swardson Synopsis: Two fledgling criminals kidnap a pizza delivery guy, strap a bomb to his chest, and inform him that he has mere hours…
Zombies? Check. Robbers? Check.
The posters feature a scared as hell Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari, as well as the very first intelligent apes from ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’.
Damned stoner apes!!
He’ll have to believe in “Miracles” to get out of this one.
We’ve reported on Bad Teacher, 30 Minutes Or Less, and Anonymous before. But now we have first looks and better descriptions of the doings that transpire on-screen.
People grieve in different ways.Michael Pena and fart detective Nick Swardson are in talks to join Danny McBride and Aziz Ansari in 30 Minutes or Less. Swardson will play the best friend to McBride's rigged-to-explode pizza guy cum (titter (hee hee!)) bank robber. Pena, who we'll see opposite McBride in season two of Eastbound and Down, is in talks to play a tattooed assassin. It's a good thing that the roles aren't reversed. I can't imagine Swardson as a tattooed assassin. Mostly because I can't take an assassin with a tramp stamp seriously. I don't know. He just seems like the type. (THR)
The director of Zombieland, Ruben Fleischer, is doing a movie about pizza and Aziz Ansari is in negotiations to star. 30 Minutes or Less follows an aimless delivery man who is forced to rob a bank by two goons who strap a bomb to his chest. Ansari would play the poor sap's straight-man buddy, on hand to recommend deep breaths and "stepping back and looking at the situation from a different perspective." So my headline doesn't make complete sense. Sue me. (Don't sue me). Seeing Ansari in a straight-man role would definitely be a change of pace for the actor. Not that he's a Jim Carrey type, but Ansari has been known to expend physical energy on stage, especially when discussing Coldstone Creamery. Danny McBride is rumored to play the unfortunate pizza pusher, which would set up a nice dynamic. I can already hear McBride putting his unique North Carolina twang on an Indian racial slur. (THR)
