Soccer fans, soccer haters, and everyone in between can agree on one thing: fake American coach Ted Lasso is the shit. Since his “debut” last year for NBCSN’s soccer coverage. We all know that Jason Sudekis‘ Ted Lasso got canned at the fictitious end of lasts season, but now he’s in the booth, where he’s able to REALLY run his mouth. Where was he when we needed him for the World Cup?

For those unfamiliar with this devil of a character, here’s the original as well:

If he continues this trajectory, he’ll be head of the U.N. by this time next year.

“Secretary General Lasso.” That sounds right.

Jason Sudekis To Join Zach Galifianakis And Owen Wilson In ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ Director’s Heist Comedy http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jason-sudekis-to-join-zach-galifianakis-and-owen-wilson-in-napoleon-dynamite-directors-heist-comedy/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jason-sudekis-to-join-zach-galifianakis-and-owen-wilson-in-napoleon-dynamite-directors-heist-comedy/#comments Tue, 01 Jul 2014 15:28:57 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=262561 Just announce Ben Stiller already, guys.

In what sounds to be just a slightly different take on Horrible Bosses with slightly schlubbier dudes, Jason Sudekis is in final talks to john Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig,  and Owen Wilson in Loomis Fargo. The film, directed by Napoleon Dynamite‘s Jared Hess, follows the true story of an armored car driver who was in on a heist, was betrayed, and then was dead set about getting even with his cohorts.

Deadline called the film a “comedy” in its headline, then a drama in the first sentence of its article. GET IT TOGETHER, DEADLINE! I can’t imagine a scenario in which this is a straight drama, but I could see some Bottle Rocket-type elements to it that could blur the line.

Here’s to hoping that this film is a little more Napoleon Dynamite than Gentlemen Broncos. Or better yet, something better than both those films were.

Jason Sudekis Waves Goodbye To SNL http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/jason-sudekis-waves-goodbye-to-snl/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/jason-sudekis-waves-goodbye-to-snl/#comments Thu, 25 Jul 2013 16:59:23 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=256033 Effective immediately.

Jason Sudekis, whose time remaining at SNL has been the subject of speculation since his movie career began to take off with Horrible Bosses, has let the world know that he won’t be coming back. In no uncertain terms.

He said to David Letterman, “I’m definitely done. I’m not coming back in the fall.” Good luck finding a grey area there, Sudekis-on-SNL-enthusiasts!

Sudekis leaves with Bill Hader, leaving SNL in the very capable, funny, arms of all those other people that I’ve never heard of. Up next for Sudekis is We’re the Millers, which looks pretty forgettable, as well as Horrible Bosses 2.

Way to plant that franchise flag, Jason! Looks like this guy knows what he’s doing!

Sorry, Jason Bateman. No one wants you after The Identity Thief. Charlie Day and Jason Sudekis, however…hot as SHIT! Thus, they’ll be teaming up for a buddy cop comedy that will probably be better than Cop Out, and about as good as The Good Guys.

The film will be directed by Bosses helmer Seth Gordon, and will be titled One Night on the Hudson. So it sounds like it should star Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, but it won’t. Probably. The rest of the film hasn’t been cast yet, so I guess it’s possible.

The film will mark the stars’ fourth foray together, after Going the Distance, Horrible Bosses, and Horrible Bosses 2: Still Bossin’ It Horribly.

Jason Sudekis is currently dating Olivia Wilde, which has no bearing on anything, but still something I feel merits mentioning.

Get Wholesome With The ‘Good Old Fashioned Orgy’ Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/get-wholesome-with-the-good-old-fashioned-orgy-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/get-wholesome-with-the-good-old-fashioned-orgy-trailer/#comments Thu, 21 Jul 2011 23:33:29 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=221388 The secret to orgies is to offer only light finger foods so people aren't too full to bang. Learned that one the hard way.

A whole mess on funny people are gettin’ together, and they’re all gonna bang each other in A Good Old Fashioned Orgy. Why they’re having the orgy isn’t important. They’re doing it to save a rec center or for the Red Cross, or something. What’s important is that they’re doing it. And if you’re at all familiar with contemporary comedy, you’re going to notice at least a handful of the cast.

The film boasts Jason Sudeikis, Will Forte, Lucy Punch, Leslie Bibb, Lindsay Sloane, Tyler Labine, Lake Bell and Nick Kroll as its principals. And while I can’t say I’m eager to see all of them naked, it’s a pretty crack squad of comedic actors, so let’s bust out the KY and just ask questions later.

A Good Old Fashioned Orgy opens September 2nd.

The promising trailer (see inset) for Horrible Bosses has expectations raised for this movie, but those out there who haven’t seen the trailer still need to be sold, so why not play to the strengths of the cast? Kevin Spacey is downright scary as a boss, as Swimming with Sharks showed, Jennifer Aniston’s character is silly enough to be funny, and Colin Farrell…just look at him. Gold.

Watch The Trailer For ‘Horrible Bosses’ While Your Boss Is Gone

These posters highlight the employee/boss couplings introduce us to the bosses using a few choice words like “psycho,” “tool,” and “maneater.” Watch out boy, she’ll chew ya up.

Not relating to the posters, but interesting nonetheless is the fact that Horrible Bosses is directed by Seth Gordon, the man behind King of Kong, the funniest documentary in the solar system. Of course, he’s also got Four Christmases to his name, but we’ll let his work on”Modern Family,”"Parks and Recreation,” and”The Office” offset that travesty.
