The one-time Daily Show correspondent has come a long way.
Director: Miguel Arteta Cast: Ed Helms, John C. Reilly, Anne Heche, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Kurtwood Smith, Stephen Root, Sigourney Weaver, Aliah Shawkat Synopsis: Tim Lippe has no idea what he’s…
We’ve got a couple official pics from the year’s two biggest comedies. See if you can find some humor in them.
In the trailer for Cedar Rapids, Ed Helms’s big follow-up to The Hangover, he plays an inexperienced guy (again) who takes a trip (again) and gets blotto (again), beat up (again), and befriends a prostitute (again). And, it looks pretty funny (again).
Ed Helms is trading up. Heather Graham won't be returning for The Hangover sequel, but Jamie Chung is stepping in. The former "Real World" star won't have to mud-wrestle Coral in the "Real World/Road Rules Challenge" Gulag to make her rent.
With Premium Rush and Suckerpunch under her belt, Chung will next head to Thailand to play the fiancée of Ed Helms's character, Stu. Not sure if she's his fiancée at the start of the film or if they become engaged during a night of Thai debauchery. I'm hoping that they don't meet in Thailand. It will be so depressing to find out she has a penis. (THR)
It looks like Zach Galifianakis doesn't want to eat the cooter banana. While appearing recently on the Comedy Death Ray podcast, the notoriously choosey star of G-Force, "Tru Calling," and Out Cold intimated that he's having some "moral" issues with what Todd Phillips is planning to do on The Hangover 2.
“But a movie you’re acting in, you don’t have a lot of control — you just show up and vomit your lines out. I’m not the boss. I’m in a deep protest right now with a movie I’m working on, up in arms about something. But I can’t get the guys to [listen] … I’m not making any leeway.” Galifianakis cut host Scott Aukerman off with an abrupt warning sound as the host began to mention the film’s title, but after Aukerman pressed, “I know you’re filming The Hhhhhhhh … ” Galifianakis admitted, “It has something to do with a movie I’m working on, yeah. I’ll tell you about it later. It’s very frustrating.”
People are assuming that Galifianakis is taking issue with the inclusion of a Mel Gibson cameo in the film. Which is kind of silly. Sure, the man is considered vile right now and this is a case of stunt casting in the highest degree, but in all fairness, he was going to be hungover anway. Can you really blame Todd Phillips if he happens to point a camera at it? (Vulture)
Here's a rumor that might be crazy enough to be true. Page Six is reporting that Mel Gibson will have a cameo in The Hangover 2 as a tattoo artist. He'll shoot his scene on the Bangkok set at Warner Bros. before the production moves to Thailand at the end of the month. Can this really be happening? Does director Todd Phillips really want to take this chance? Should Mel Gibson be left around needles when the slightest peak at a skanky extra could set him off?
When Todd Phillips used Mike Tyson in The Hangover people took notice, so perhaps he's using the same strategy in the sequel. Afterall, Tyson bit a man's ear off, and Gibson hasn't done that yet as far as the public record is concerned. Maybe doing a cameo in an outlandish comedy is the perfect way to get back in people's good graces. After the world accepts him as a tattoo artist it might finally be ready to watch him tackle Jodie Foster's Beaver. (/Film)
I hope you've got your laughing diaper on, because these hilarious photos from the set of The Hangover 2 are going to have you peeing blood from laughing so hard. That's normal, right?
Just look at this pic of Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis walking through an airport! Why are they there? What are they up to? I'm sure it's for something hilarious! I can totally see why these pics are taking the Internet by storm. They're just so damn insightful! It's like I'm on the set as the hilarity unfolds!
Hey, anybody heading to the store? We're all out of whip-its. (Coming Soon)
See another hilarious picture from The Hangover 2 after the jump.
With Due Date on the horizon, Todd Phillips is ready for The Hangover 2 and has confirmed that it will take place in Thailand. Which means, we will see things that can never be unseen. Things that involve donkeys.
"It takes place in Bangkok and LA. There's gonna be some f***ed-up surprises. The three guys are back. Mr. Chow's back too."
I'm kind of grossed out by this movie already. I'm walking into this with the same anxiousness and dread I feel before watching a Japanese horror film. Popular activities in Thailand include sex with lady-boys and watching strippers eject peeled bananas from their hoo-has, sending them flying a good fifteen-feet across the room. So help me God if Galifianakis eats that banana. (Empire)
Zach Galifianakis is now the proud papa of a Thai baby.
Todd Phillips, you a sly boots. The director went on record last fall to shoot down the rumors that The Hangover 2 would send Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Justin Bartha to Thailand stating that, "There's a lot of rumors. There was rumor also that it was going to Mexico or something and neither are true." A source told ComingSoon today that the production will move to Thailand this fall to begin filming. So, who's right? The director or the anonymous source? Somebody get Sumner Redstone on the case.
Whether the report is true or not remains to be seen, but I think Thailand would be a hilarious backdrop for the outrageous comedy. Think of all the comedy they'll mine out of Muay Thai kickboxing and teenage prostitution. Perhaps a Roman Polanski cameo can even be worked in.
Warner Bros never expected The Hangover to become successful enough to lead to a sequel so they didn't sign the actors up for additional films. Though it's been expected that Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis would return for another day of delirium tremens, nothing was confirmed until today.Deadline reports that each actor will be paid in the $5 million range. That's a huge step upward considered they didn't earn $1 million collectively for the original film. I'm terrified/delighted to see what Zach Galifianakis will spend that money on. If anyone sees someone driving a hovercraft on the freeway, it's probably him. Director Todd Phillips will be cashing in as well, though his gamble to receive 15% of the original's gross has already made him a very rich man.No plot specifics for the sequel have been released yet, though I have a sinking suspicion it involves drinking and trying to remember what Galifianakis stuck his penis into the previous night.
Yo, yo, yo. You about to get punched in the face with the hottest new track outta Scranton, PA! The new banger from girl pop band Subtle Sexuality (aka Kelly Kapoor and Erin Hannon) has just dropped and it's what the streets has been crying for. You can bump the jam below and check out more on they official website. Ya heaaaaaaard.
Bryan Singer is in talks to bring a big screen version of Battlestar Galactica to theaters. Originally he was set to develop the television series reboot in 2001 but was c-blocked by the Taliban. The gig later went to Ron Moore and the rest is history. No word yet on the creative direction of the feature but let's hope it wraps up a little tighter than the new series did. I find it kind of odd that Universal is already rebooting a franchise that practically just completed its successful run. If this is the new norm, can we get a do-over on Transformers 2?
