Sorry about that.

Since we all love Paul Rudd (don’t be contrarian on this one), let’s all treat a silly yearbook photo of him as news as we head into the dregs of the news cycle during this Holiday week. People have already started mainlining gravy and mumbling the word “football” over and over, so the studios have pretty much put the kibosh on anything until next Monday. Unless it’s bad news. Then we’ll get it Friday.

But until Monday or Friday, we’re gonna have to create our own news.

So here you go. I give you…news:

(Unsurprisingly, we can credit Reddit for this find.)

Peter Dinklage’s Haircut In His 1987 Yearbook Is A Revelation http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/peter-dinklages-haircut-in-his-1987-yearbook-is-a-revelation/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/peter-dinklages-haircut-in-his-1987-yearbook-is-a-revelation/#comments Wed, 04 Jun 2014 15:23:05 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=261998 And no, I don't think "revelation" is too strong a word.

I don’t know about you, but I had a terrific haircut in high school, so I’m in an excellent position to be critical of others. Especially when Peter Dinklage, who graduated about 13 years earlier than I did. So with that in mind, let’s examine Peter “The Dink” Dinklage’s haircut in his high school yearbook.

It’s magnificent, in a flow-y, puffy way.

It’s everything that Tyrion Lannister’s hair is not. It’s all one color, no auburn streaks, it’s not matted around his head. It’s free. Free in a way that you and I could only dream of. And it can never be caged again.

If I was current on Game of Thrones (I’m about four episodes behind), I would make some reference to the events in the show, but for all I know, everyone is dead and the show is about butterflies now.

7 Funniest School-Related Sitcoms http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/7-funniest-school-related-sitcoms/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/7-funniest-school-related-sitcoms/#comments Thu, 13 Sep 2012 18:52:54 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=250886 With apologies to 'Drexell's Class'...

The post 7 Funniest School-Related Sitcoms appeared first on Screen Junkies.

It’s back to school time, which means things are about to get hilarious. Well, that’s the case if television is any indicator. In real life, going back to school is probably fun at first, but that new excitement tapers off pretty quickly. But you know what is fun? Watching TV. Even when the show you’re watching is about school, which we’ve already established as being a pretty crappy time. So, in honor of this return to the halls of academia, I’ve compiled this list of the seven funniest school-related sitcoms*. Plan your study breaks accordingly.

*With apologies to Drexell’s Class. That was some of Dabney Coleman‘s finest work.

Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper

It’s a plot as common as the nose on your face. Comedian Mark Curry stars as an NBA superstar who screws up and has to fall back on being a substitute teacher and gym coach. Just about every school in America has a former professional athlete on its teaching staff, because everyone knows that’s where the real money is.

Boy Meets World

Boy Meets World showed us life through the eyes of Cory Matthews, a kid growing up next to his teacher in suburban Philadelphia. Throughout the run of the series, we followed Cory through grade school, high school, and college as he learned various life lessons with help from his big-chested classmate, his imbecile brother, and his physically and emotionally abused best friend. TGIF!

Saved By The Bell

As the quintessential 90′s teen sitcom, you’ve gotta know this one. Re-runs air all over the world, even in small Eastern European villages. In fact, I believe Screech is viewed as a messiah in some of those villages.

A Different World

As a spin-off to The Cosby Show, A Different World had a lot riding on it. However, it stood on its own as a quality show thanks to Dwayne Wayne’s weird flippy glasses/sunglasses. It was the late 80′s. That’s all you needed back then.

Head Of The Class

Designed as a vehicle for Howard Hesseman, Head Of The Class followed the gifted students of Monroe High School in Manhattan and their rebel rouser teacher. However, the talented cast of students comprised of actors like Brian Robbins, Robin Givens, and Dan Frischman quickly stepped into the spotlight, as well as Leslie Bega, who looked like this on the show:

But now looks like this:

Arvid looks pretty good these days too.

Welcome Back, Kotter

The one that started it all. By that, I mean John Travolta’s fixation with shoving hoses into guys.

Community

Though Community is a sitcom in the traditional sense, there’s hardly anything traditional about Community. Birthed from the brain of Dan Harmon and starring a hilarious cast, Community is (or maybe was) the best source for cutting edge comedy on network television. Hard to say where the show is headed now thanks to behind-the-scenes shake-ups, but we’ll find out soon enough when it returns for another season. And then hopefully a few more. And a movie.

Wiz And Snoop To Make Movie About WWI. Just Kidding.

Remember that hole in your heart that opened up when you heard that Method Man and Redman decided to scrap How High 2? Well, it’s about to get filled. With weed smoke. And a lot of love. But more weed smoke.

Notorious teetotalers Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa have decided to produce High School, a film that will accompany an collaborative album. So the film is an afterthought to ride the coattails of a novelty album by two guys who haven’ taken anything seriously since Doggystyle and birth, respectively. Filmmaking at its finest. Khalifa so eloquently puts it:

“It’s about pot, of course. But it’s about mine and his relationship. A spin-off of us being cool in the industry, smoking a lot of weed, being around a lot of weed. We’re going to try to have fun with it and also try to enlighten people at the same time, not just get everybody high.”

Feeling as though he didn’t quite capture the scope of this undertaking, he added, “It’s a big deal.” Something tells me that this film will be anything but a “big deal.” This may in fact be the smallest deal this website has reported on since our 14th Sheen update.

Snoop Dogg has not yet been reached for comment, but will probably have something like “Izzle my chuch,” to say about the whole affair. To Khalifa’s comment, I wish they would just get everyone high. (A.V. Club)

Ah, prom! Remember that magical night? That unforgettable evening where you spent a lot of money on a tux, limo, and corsage all because your platonic female friend’s older boyfriend didn’t want to go with her? No, just me? Well, either way, that’s not the plot of the upcoming Disney film Prom, which revolves around that ever so pivotal (at least in movies) night in the lives of several archetypal teenagers. Good luck to you, awkward kid, pretty girl, outcast, token black couple, and kid planning to lose his virginity! The film stars Aimee Teegarden, Cameron Monaghan, and Nicholas Braun, and it’s in theaters April 29th. It promises to be fun for the whole family!*

*If you’re 12 years old and an orphan.

Adrien Brody Gets F*cked in ‘HIGH School’ Teaser Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/adrien-brody-gets-fcked-in-high-school-teaser-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/adrien-brody-gets-fcked-in-high-school-teaser-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 It's 4/20, so of course a trailer centering around the sweet sticky-icky has dropped. Stoner comedy HIGH School follows a valedictorian who, out of fear of losing his college scholarship, begrudgingly teams up with a charismatic pothead to do the only thing they can think of to neutralize the threat—get the entire student body stoned.  If you can't tell by the above screen shot, Adrien Brody plays the drug dealer with a penchant for stink eyes, and Matt Bush, the kid from those "don't throw your f*ckin' minutes away!" AT&T commercials, plays Henry Burke, the student. Michael Chiklis dons a full head of whispy hair as the smarmy principal who institutes a zero-tolerance policy at the school and wants Henry's head on a pike. Those crazy kids at this past Sundance loved the film, but I heard that crowd only smokes kind buds, so your experience may differ depending on your allowance. Check out the... Oh man. **Giggles uncontrollably** I know I put something after the jump.
