Bryan Cranston, who has enjoyed appearing in most every work of television and film since making a name for himself on Breaking Bad, decided that he hasn’t crammed his fingers into the 30 Rock pie yet.

Well, that’s been fixed as he signed on to play Ron, Kenneth’s mom’s “friend” during the final season of the show. Kenneth’s mom will be played by Catherine O’Hara, so expect the interactions of these two to be WAY more interesting than what’s going on with Frank or Jenna or whoever is still on the show.

Of all the Cranston announcements that could have been issued today, this isn’t among the top 100 most promising, but it’s something, and considering Michael Clarke Duncan died this weekend, we could use the boost.

Michael Clarke Duncan, who gained an almost instant reputation in Hollywood as a menacing figure with a heart of gold, died of complications from a myocardial infarction he suffered last month. He was 54 years old.

Duncan’s career had tapered off in recent years, following an auspicious start that had him appearing in most every film made between 1998-2002, including, but certainly not limited to: The Green Mile, The Whole Nine Yards, Armageddon, and Planet of the Apes.

Despite his hulking presence, Duncan was known to be among the sweetest men in Hollywood, as evidenced throughout his career by regular appearances on the The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, in which the everyman could be seen telling homespun stories that seemed out of character coming from any Hollywood star, much less one of his intimidating size.

If you want to be Green Lantern, you have to go through Kilowog first, as this clip from G4‘s”Attack of the Show” illustrates. Michael Clarke Duncan swung by the show to talk about having an awesome voice and portraying interstellar drill sergeant Kilowog.

At first, I wasn’t so hot on the Green Lantern, but the recent trailers and this clip have me getting kinda amped for it. Yes, it does look a bit like The Mask, but this clip could be far sillier than it is. All in all, it looks like a fun summer spectacle. Starring Duncan, Blake Lively, Mark Strong, Peter Sarsgaard, and Ryan Reynolds‘ head, Green Lantern opens in theaters June 17th. (Superhero Hype)

Here’s a new trailer for Green Lantern. It’s a lot less of an Iron Man than the first one, with a lot more scope and vastness. Remember, when the first one came out, I was like “whoa, this isn’t very vast. This should definitely be more vast.” Well, here it is, a Green Lantern trailer with vastness. There’s also some Michael Clarke Duncan and Tim Robbins, if you’re into those guys (and who isn’t?).

Anyway, the trailer is pretty cool, definitely an improvement over the last one. I’m actually pretty excited about Green Lantern now. Who knew?

The universe is gonna be saved by Ryan Reynolds, Forehead Man, Ugly Dog Face Man, and Chicken Fish: The Superhero. I feel safer already.

Here are the new posters for Green Lantern, which show the Green Lantern Corps in action-tastic stances. It looks like Chicken Fish, aka Tomar-Re (Geoffrey Rush) is gonna lob some green power right at ya, catapult style. You’ve also got Sinestro (Mark Strong) scowling mightily, probably because he had a bad day at the fantasy tanning salon. Kilowog’s (Michael Clarke Duncan) strategy is to distract you with his face while he punches you in yours. Hal Jordan is rolling his eyes while powering up, as if to say,”I am way too powerful to be posing for this poster.”

If you haven’t seen the new TV spot, you can check that out here. Or just wait until these aliens strike poses in your local theater on June 17, 2011. (Facebook)

It looks like 'The Mask', but at least it doesn't look like 'Son Of The Mask'.

There’s a new TV spot for Green Lantern that would like to remind us how the movie is actually awesome and how much we should avoid that first trailer. There’s space and stuff now and the Lantern displaying gatling gun-producing powers that look like something out of The Mask. There’s also the dulcet timbre of Michael Clarke Duncan, who has loaned his voice to the reptilian bull dog-faced alien Kilowog. Which I’m sure he took as a compliment when offered the gig. Either that, or a casting agent got elbow dropped through a coffee table.

Michael Clarke Duncan took the green mile all the way to Green Lantern planet in his green machine. I assume he has a green machine.

The deep voiced actor is in talks to voice Kilowog in the Warner Bros take on DC Comics‘ Green Lantern. He would join Ryan Reynolds in just one of his many, many superhero roles, and Geoffrey Rush as Tomar-Re, aka Fishy McBirdo.

Kilowog is like an intergalactic drill sergeant for newbie green lanterns, who looks like a pig that was placed in the microwave as a prank. Between him and Tomar-Re, I think I understand how the Green Lantern Corps work: they frighten intergalactic criminals with their intense ugliness. Still, Duncan is a terrific actor with a smooth voice, so at least Kilowog will have that going for him.

Currently in post-production, Green Lantern is looking to land in theaters June 17, 2011. (Hollywood Reporter)

Warners Didn’t Like ‘The Green Lantern’ Trailer Either http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/warners-didnt-like-the-green-lantern-trailer-either/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/warners-didnt-like-the-green-lantern-trailer-either/#comments Wed, 30 Mar 2011 12:38:26 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=204434 Don't worry. We're going to see a revised marketing onslaught soon enough.

The post Warners Didn’t Like ‘The Green Lantern’ Trailer Either appeared first on Screen Junkies.

The first trailer for The Green Lantern was expected to explode every movie screen in the world simultaneously but unfortunately it just kind of pedaled out into the middle of the room on a broken tricycle, tried a card trick but failed, muttered something borderline racist, and then fell asleep after going the bathroom on itself. But that’s why pencils have erasers. And Warner Brothers knows this. WB Pictures President Jeff Robinov tells the LA Times:

“We are on a learning curve in getting 3-D materials and marketing materials on the same schedule.”

“Part of the reason the response to the first trailer was lukewarm was that the big-scale sequences weren’t ready to show, and we suffered for it. We can’t afford to do that again.”

So, while a team of nerds work to make the Lantern’s action live up to expectations, Warners are also figuring out what else they can do to help the film. And what do you do when you’ve got a superhero movie in need? You make the call. That’s right. Latino Review reports that Michael Clarke Duncan is in talks to loan his baritone voice to the character of Kilowog, Hal Jordan’s trainer in the Green Lantern Corp, because running distortion on Dennis Haysbert just proved not awesome enough.

The post Fox Found Its ‘Finder’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

The Bones universe is far, far too large to be contained in just one hour per week. Fortunately, Fox realizes this and solves the problem with ‘The Finder.’ The new “Bones” spin-off will be introduced in episode 19 of this season, giving America three lovely hours to fall in love with Geoff Stults, who, it was announced today, will play the titular Finder.

What else do we know about “The Finder”? The character is based on “The Locator” series of books from Richard Greener. They seem to be a very literal bunch producing these shows. The finder is a locator. Got it. His partner will be played by Michael Clarke Duncan, wh I am obligated to tell you is an Oscar nominee for his work in The Green Mile.

It seems more than a little goofy that the show is being considered a spinoff when it’s pretty clear that the producers are shoehorning this character into the final three episodes of this season solely for the purpose of building an audience for the new show’s premiere. It should be more accurately be described as a “Bones”-incubated show, rather than a spinoff. But that’s wordy.

“Tune in to Fox this for “The Finder.” If you’re a fan of “Bones,” then you’ll fall in love with the new show from the people tangentially associated with it! Tuesdays this fall, after all-new episodes of “Are You Smarter Than a Haitian?”(Deadline)

The ShamWow Guy has a Movie Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/the-shamwow-guy-has-a-movie-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/the-shamwow-guy-has-a-movie-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 You're gonna love my nuts (but probably not my movie). Vince Offer, a.k.a. the ShamWow Guy, made a movie, and we have the trailer. You getting this, camera guy? What's even more surprising is the fact that it isn't his first film. Underground Comedy 2010, which was both written and directed by Offer, is actually a followup to his previous work, Underground Comedy Movie. What the film lacks in the way of an original title it more than makes up for with off-the-wall cameos. Bobby Lee plays a character named Dickman, Michael Clarke Duncan plays a gay virgin, and Lindsay Lohan plays herself in this bizarre, most likely straight to video flick. Last I heard, Offer, a vocal opponent and former member of the Church of Scientology, had been hauled off to jail for punching a hooker in the face (supposedly in self-defense). I'm suprised that he's back, but I'm even more suprised that the Scientologists didn't put the kibosh on his film, considering their reach in Hollywood. Although after watching the trailer, maybe they figured it would do more harm to his career if they simply allowed it to be released.
