Especially about all the porno.

The third season premiere of “Childrens Hospital” last week marked the return of the weirdest short-form television production on air. Like most of Adult Swim’s comedy offerings, the show is chock-full of frequent non-sequiturs, irreverent pop-culture jabs, and tongue-in-cheek references to events that never actually happened. Each episode is 15-minutes of rapid-fire comedy. There’s no plot, no carry-over between episodes, and no story-arcs to speak of. The only consistent element is the character lineup: A group of absurd, self-involved doctors with problems.

I sat down with the actors during the show’s last week of filming. In many ways, they’re just as quirky as the characters they portray.

Name: Henry Winkler
Character: Sy Mittleman, the hospital administrator

Screen Junkies: How’s your character looking this season?
Henry Winkler: I love Sy. He is misguided. He is a little goofball who tries to run this hospital, and he doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing.

SJ: Where do you pull the inspiration for your character from?
HW: That’s just it: He is so weird. I just listen to John [Stern], David [Wain], and Rob [Corddry]. I sometimes don’t know what’s happening and I’ll go to Rob or John and say “Just tell me, what are you thinking?” And then I try to get close. For instance, a couple of days ago we filmed a scene where my character shot a pornographic movie in the hospital. He’s the hospital administrator, but he rented out a room to a film company that shoots X-rated films, and then he joined in as a cameraman. So it’s just wacky.

SJ: Do you have any experience playing such a weird character? Your role on “Arrested Development” could be pretty out there at times.
HW: On “Arrested Development” he was just sexually unsure of himself. My character on “Arrested Development” wore chiffon underwear. Sy wears BVDs.

SJ: How does that difference in briefs translate to a difference in character?
HW: Well, you’re always aware of the feeling of the brief that you’re in, and that is where I have my character start. Sir Lawrence Olivier used nose putty, and he would create a nose for his character. Once he got the nose right, he knew the character. True story. For me, it’s the underwear.

SJ: Is this something you’ve been doing for most of your career?
HW: No, I kind of grew into it. No pun intended. And you know what? In a lot of ways, the Fonz really was the foundation of Sy. If you watch Sy very carefully, you can see the underpinnings of the Fonz in him. The cool guy in this nerd.

SJ: How do you like working with the rest of the cast?
HW: Honestly, this is an extraordinary cast. Each one of these human beings is a home run hitter. Each one of these people could be the head of their own show. They are funny, the very definition of funny. What doesn’t get on screen is a shame, what’s left on the cutting room floor.

Name: Rob Huebel
Character: Dr. Owen Maestro

Screen Junkies: What’s coming up in season three?
Rob Huebel: There’s a lot of cool stuff. There’s a ’70s episode, there’s another documentary episode where we find out what happens to us in the future, post Childrens’ Hospital, we all get really cool spinoff shows. Also, we see what we all do when we’re not at the hospital. I’m an airline pilot, of course. There’s an old-timey 40s episode, more of a play really. So there’s a few special episodes. Not where anyone gets molested or someone’s retarded or anything like that. Those are really special episodes. These are just special episodes. I find my father, I find my foreskin from when I was circumcised, I get it reattached. All of those things happen in the same episode. I die, I come back to life, there’s porn stars, there’s a goat. There’s a lot. It’s hard to keep track of. There’s also a lot of sex. Lots of cross-pollination on the show. But that’s something all hospital shows do, so we make fun of it.

SJ: Any notable guest appearances to look forward to?
RH: Yeah. In the comedy world, there’s a lot. Sarah Silverman, Nick Kroll, Rob Riggle, Seth Morris, Brian Huskey, Nick Offerman. Stephen Root from Office Space plays my dad. Yeah, there’s a lot. Oh, and there’s a black doctor this season.

SJ:
Are you guys going outside of the hospital at all?
RH: We’re going to Brazil to shoot for real. You know, the show is a Brazilian-based television show, which is a joke that was made in season one and no one cares about it at all or knows. Like, you would be confused if someone mentioned that. But it is. The hospital is in Brazil, and we have to go to Brazil to shoot. There’s actually a fair amount of stuff that happens outside the hospital. There’s an episode at the beginning where you see what we’re all doing in our off hours. That’s all outside of the hospital. Everyone has different side jobs. There’s also an episode that just follows around the ambulance driver, documentary style.

SJ: Do you think the show could work the same way if it was a full half hour?
RH: No. We would never do that. If you do that, you have to have stories and you have to develop characters and there has to be continuity. You have to be consistent, and that seems boring. That’s a bad idea. We like to just have no consistence or continuity and just jump around and make it funny.

Name: Erin Hayes
Character: Dr. Lola Spratt

Screen Junkies: How’s shooting going?
Erin Hayes: It’s good. We’re doing a really different kind of episode right now. We get to do whatever we want, so we don’t even have to reference what we’ve done in past episodes.

SJ: Every episode is standalone.
EH: Every episode is totally standalone. It’s going to probably frustrate some people because we mess with the storyline so much. It’s just the freedom to do anything. We kind of pride ourselves on having no character development and no storyline arcs apart from what happens in each episode.

SJ: Is this your first experience with a show like this?
EH: Yeah. Mostly I’ve done traditional network sitcom type stuff. Most shows are like that. There are very few shows that do things differently, especially now with all those shows where people get very into the mythology and the back-story and the whole world. We really don’t need to bother with any of that. It’s very free.

SJ: How much of the show is improvised?
EH: It’s fully scripted, but improv does play a role. I think that’s really nice because there are so many amazing people in this cast who are very good at it. So you do a take, you certainly get what’s in the script, but if in rehearsal somebody just throws something in, a lot of times the producers standing around will say “That’s great, keep that” or “Let’s change that around.” It’s not set in stone, so if there’s a funnier joke that comes out, that’s what ends up in there. There’s very much a do the take then do whatever you want aspect to it.

SJ: Are there any big developments in store for your character this season?
EH: There’s one that’s really weird. The characters get put on night shift at the hospital and Nick Kroll comes back as a completely different character that’s completely hilarious. I stumble on a porno shoot that’s happening in the hospital and my character’s response is just to cry. I just start crying. It sends me to a deep, dark place. I really have very few lines in the episode, but I’m crying a lot. I feel like it almost deserves a prequel episode, because there are questions in Lola’s childhood about what the fuck happened to this person. But there’s no explanation.

SJ:
How long is a typical day on set?
EH: Around 12 hours, but days have been going longer than that. We pack so much in. We do an episode every two days, so it’s a lot to get that much. They also write very ambitious scripts, so we’ve been able to get it done but it has meant some long days. But they’re also very fun days, so you don’t mind being here. Then again, I forget what my children look like for about a month every year so there’s that.

Name: Ken Marino
Character: Dr. Glenn Richie

Screen Junkies: What’s it like to be a part of “Childrens Hospital“?
Ken Marino: It’s great. Anytime I come to work I feel lucky and blessed to be working with these people. When we did the web series, we just did it because it would be fun and because Rob’s awesome and Dave’s awesome, so I said sure. The fact that it got turned into a 15-minute show, which is kind of the perfect amount of time for an episode, was a pleasant surprise. I’m just happy to be along for the ride.

SJ: How would the show change if episodes were 30 minutes?
KM: The show is built on just a barrage of jokes, and the characters can kind of go anywhere, and the show can go anywhere. If you’ve got a half hour it needs to be grounded a little more, and there needs to be more heart on screen. Right now there’s a lot of heart in the making of this. The people involved in making it love it and are passionate about it. But the characters are kind of despicable, and it’s hard to put an emotional throughline in it. When you have a 30-minute episode you kind of need that, because you start to tire of just joke, joke, joke, joke. I think 15 minutes of it is kind of perfect, because you can just enjoy the jokes and the silliness of it.

Name: Malin Akerman
Character: Dr. Valerie Flame

Screen Junkies: Who is Valerie hooking up with this season?
Malin Akerman: It’s more like who isn’t she hooking up with. She’s a very interesting character, and everything is so discombobulated that I can’t even remember who she hooks up with. I know she grabs Rob Corddry’s balls to keep him scared of her. She has a little crush on Lake Bell’s character and gets her to get naked, which is great.

SJ: It seems like there are no boundaries to who or what gets made fun of in the show.
MA:
As crazy and out there as the whole show seems, I know that the creators put a lot of thought into how far we can actually push it. They want to push it to a point where everyone kind of cringes and goes “oh my god, we can really do that?” but not the point where we lose our viewers. So there is so me thought that goes into how far we push it, but Adult Swim has been so lenient with us and given us so much creative space to play with. Shooting is like summer camp with your best friends where everyone is a part of the creative process. It feels like everyone is there to make everyone better.

Catch “Children’s Hospital” every Thursday at midnight on Adult Swim.

UPDATE: In sad news for Alec Baldwin, it turns out that he is doing Rock of Ages after all, according to Deadline. Below is the original article, which you can now make fun of for being inaccurate in retrospect.

Adam Shankman, director of Rock of Ages, has been shamelessly bilking Hollywood star after Hollywood star into appearing in his movie. Now, finally, it appears that at least one person has broken free of his seductive grasp – star of”30 Rock” and those ads for Hulu, Alec Baldwin.

Baldwin has dropped out after being confirmed by Shankman back in March. He was supposed to play “Dennis Dupree, the owner of the Bourbon Room, the Sunset Boulevard nightclub at the center of the movie.” I guess now they’ll have to get Stephen Baldwin to do it instead?

Some of the other actors not as savvy as Alec Baldwin include Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Brand Paul Giamatti, Malin Akerman, Bryan Cranston, and Mary J. Blige. Well, you know what they say – never give a sucker an eve break or smarten up a chump. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Yeeeeee-haw, pardners and pardnettes! I reckon it’s time for another casting round-up! Today, coming up on the branding iron are Malin Akerman, Bruce Willis, 50 Cent, and Ian Ziering.

Akerman, she of the universally-beloved Watchmen, is the latest cowgirl to get lassooed into the musical Rock of Ages, with fellow cowpokes Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, and literally 8 million others. Will Akerman be able to stand out in a cast filled with such heavyweights? No, she won’t.  (Deadline)

Best pals Bruce Willis and 50 Cent, meanwhile, are lending their famous faces and heads to Fire With Fire, an indie thriller about a fireman in witness protection. Giddiyap, Bruce Willis and 50 Cent! (Variety)

Ziering, who has a cool Bond villain name, has been cast in I Hate You Dad, an Adam Sandler/Andy Samberg comedy. Ziering will be playing Adam Sandler’s character in a TV show-within-the-movie, which is way too confusing to even think about right now, so instead I’m a gonna ride all the way to Texas. C’mon Whiplash, we’re off! (Variety)

UPDATE: ThePlaylist is reporting that Jim Sturgess is in fact NOT starring in this film. But who will cheat on Malin then?

Jim Sturgess and Malin Akerman are starring in a romance film of which the central theme is the satisfaction that can be found by cheating on your spouse. Wildwood Inn stars two couples who find out that they vacation at the same cabin and use that as some sort of impetus for wife-swapping. Well, maybe not, but the official word is that “they begin to explore relationships outside of their marriage via the cabin’s welcome journal.” Eh. My way will sell more tickets. No word on who will play the other male and female leads or if Sturgess and Akerman are an initial couple in the film.

If you haven’t heard of Sturgess before, then you must hate romance, as he starred in Across the Universe, and is slated to get dirty with Anne Hathaway and Kirsten Dunst in One Day and Upside Down, respectively.

The film will be the directorial debut from Christopher McDonald who is so well-known for playing Shooter McGavin in Happy Gilmore that it might as well be on his driver’s license. (Playlist)

When your daughter has been kidnapped and thrown in the trunk of a taxi, you’re gonna want Malin Akerman on your side. At least, that’s what the producers of Medallion are thinking. THR is reporting that the blonde is in negotiations to star opposite Nicholas Cage in the action thriller. Cage is playing the father of the kidnapped girl, while Akerman will play his ex-girlfriend who helps him get her back.

Here’s the twist – they’re both retired thieves. So if you think that they’re going to recover Cage’s daughter without drawing upon some good ole’ fashioned thievin’ skills…then you just don’t know movies very well.

Simon West will be directing, having worked with Cage before in his debut, a quirky little thinkpiece called Con Air. Filming starts in New Orleans in March, with no release dates specified just yet.

Lindsay Lohan in happier times.

Poor Lindsay Lohan. Everyone knows she’s fallen on tough times, but now, it seems she can’t even find work as a porn star.

Lohan had landed the role of 70′s porn actress Linda Lovelace in Matthew Wilder’s Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story. But due to her ongoing legal troubles and drug problems, she has been dropped from the cast in favor of Malin Akerman. You know your career is in trouble when you’re too unreliable to play a 70′s porn star. But on the plus side, Malin Akerman, who you may remember as the chick wearing the skintight outfits in The Watchmen, is super hot. I guess that’s not much of a comfort to Lindsay, but it makes me feel better. (Deadline via Collider)

Couples Retreat is sponsorin Break Media this week, so I’m going to go ahead and describe the film as a hilarious look at real world problems faced by married couples.

But when it comes to looking at the real world problems of married couples, not all films are so friggin’ hilarious.  In fact, some movies might just ruin your crappy marriage!

If you ever want to get married, or you‘re already married and want to stay that way, I recommend you avoid these seven films like Bryan Singer avoids vagina.

(Click on the posters to watch each movie’s trailer.)

Private Parts

On the surface Howard Stern’s Private Parts might not seem so bad.  After all, the film is basically a love note from Stern to his wife.  It was his way of letting her know that despite all the breasts he sees on a daily basis, love conquers all.

The only problem is that the movie is complete B.S. Stern and his wife had already separated by the time filming completed, proving once again that boobies often conquer love.

 

Kramer vs. Kramer

It’s bad enough when your wife walks out on you, but just imagine if she didn’t take your snot-nosed little kid with her!  If the idea of raising some little sh*t by yourself frightens you, don’t watch this movie.

 

Eraserhead

When you break it down, the plot is basically the same as Kramer vs. Kramer, except with a lot more disturbing imagery.  And instead of being stuck with a snot-nosed little kid, the “protagonist” is stuck with some sort of wheezing reptilian miscarriage. This film will not make you feel good about tying the knot, or anything else, for that matter.

 

War of the Roses

It’s common knowledge that once you get married your odds of getting a blow job shrink dramatically.  This film’s disturbing bedroom scene will ruin those few occasions when you do.  

If you don’t want to become paranoid every time your wife tries to go down on you for your birthday, don’t watch this film.

 

Cheaper By The Dozen

This film graphically depicts just how disgustingly zany marriage and family can be.  On another level, it’s a sad example of the type of sh*tty movie you’re going to get stuck watching on a regular basis once you and your wife squirt out a kid.  Either way you look at it, it’s sad.

 

Revolutionary Road

Roger Ebert says Revolutionary Road is a film about the restlessness that comes into marriage when the partners realize they’re married for good and there’s an empty space at the center.

You can get that same feeling by looking at the beanbag chair that was once your wife’s firm and well shaped ass.  No need to give BlockBuster an extra five bucks.

 

Real Wife Stories

This film will be enjoyable from the time you press play until exactly three minutes later when the first Kleenex hits your abdomen.  But after that the film will either make you extremely paranoid about what your wife is up to while you’re at work, or very disappointed about what she’s not up to when you’re at home. 

Married men should avoid this film like the plague. Might I suggest a healthier alternative such as Back Door Babysitters or It’s Okay! She’s My Stepdaughter.
