Amy Poehler will host the 36th season premiere of "Saturday Night Live" on September 25 with musical guest Katy Perry. That's on a Saturday. Considering that everyone is either leaving (Will Forte) or getting fired (possibly Jenny Slate), the "SNL" alum and star of "Parks and Recreation" might have to calm the nerves of newbie cast members.
Hopefully it won't turn out like last year's season premiere, in which Jenny Slate uttered the word "f*ckin'" on live television. You can't do that kind of stuff, Jenny Slate! Now her head is on Lorne Michaels's chopping block. I don't watch the show anymore, but I've been told by people who do that Slate is groan-worthy. If you're going to shoot off at the mouth like sailor you should at least get people laughing. Off with her head, Lorne! (Deadline)
Sorry all you Fart Face fans, but the man behind the character you love so dearly is packing his fart face up and traveling on. Will Forte will not return to "Saturday Night Live" for the show's 36th season. Neither NBC nor Forte's people would offer a P.C. response as to why, but apparently the split is "amicable," like they always are according to lawyers.
The actor is now free to pursue other projects that aren't on Saturday night or live. The question is, can he remain relevant in movies for long if he's not continuely exposed to fans on "SNL"? MacGruber didn't do him any favors. I think Forte's a funny guy and all, but he's not exactly a household name like Will Ferrell was when he decided to jump Lorne Michael's ship. Unless your household is particularly fond of twisted, weird-ass sketches. In which case, your family should have dinner together more often. (Movieline)
Bad news for MacGruber and Co. Despite a relentless Internet marketing campaign and surprisingly positive reviews (relatively speaking), the film has completely tanked at the box office. The Village Voice is reporting that the SNL spin off pulled in a paltry $4.1 million over the weekend, included a disastrous $1.5 million from its opening night. Even with a budget of only $10 million, the results are disappointing. And the worst part of it all is that MacGruber's failure has basically killed any chance of me selling my Goat Boy spec script. Screw you, Will Forte! You've crushed my dreams, yet again! (Box Office Mojo)
BREAKING NEWS: Somebody stole Will Forte's ass celery.I caught up with Forte and director Jorma Taccone earlier this week after a viewing of MacGruber's hilariously over-the-top big-screen outing. One scene from the movie that has people talking is when MacGruber "improvises" his way out of a tight jam with a discarded celery stalk. I asked the filmmakers how dancing around nude with celery in one's butt effects the vibe with the teamsters on set (it earns you more respect, according to Taccone), and Forte told me about an overzealous fan eager to own a piece of film history."There was actually a celery thief! There was some guy who somehow liberated a piece of celery. Somebody told me that some guy who was affiliated with the railyard [where the scene was filmed] had come and taken one of the pieces of celery."Well, I don't really know what to say to that, except they're better off it's someone from the location than someone from Craft Services.
With the Will Forte vehicle MacGruber due out in theaters this Friday, I decided to look into the funny little history of "Saturday Night Live's" adventures on the silver screen. Generally the movies were spun off from their more popular sketches (how the Roxbury guys were popular, I'll never know).I wanted to grade SNL spinoffs that were regular sketches with regular cast members. I also wanted to compare the merits of each using the two only barometers for success that Hollywood has: critical reception and, of course, money. Further, I studied a particular SNL cast member, and their career success as compared to their SNL movie vehicle.Here are the results.
"Saturday Night Live" is officially a hit again thanks to Betty White and her whore mouth. The Facebook-supported, hood-approved actress officially rocked it and helped the show score its highest ratings since a pre-election November 2008 episode.Many of the episode's sketches coasted by on the "Grandma says naughty words" schtick of which White is clearly a master. In fact, her muffin sketch is all anyone is talking about today as cubicles everywhere tune into "SNL" via Hulu. I hope I don't get caught by the boss but whatever. It wouldn't be the first time I was fired because of an old woman's vagina. (Reuters)
If movies and television have taught us anything, it's that our girlfriends will be immediately railed by cheesy Eurotrash douche-wads moments after we break up with them. That's just science. You can't fight it.Last night's hilarious SNL Digital Short takes aim at this trope by having Andy Samberg don the flaxen tresses of Viggo the Carpathian and ruin host Ryan Phillipe's life. One bowl of cereal at a time.
