As if juxtaposing the loose cannon, crass stylings of Melissa McCarthy with the supercool Jason Statham wasn’t enough, the producers of Spy have decided to roll rapper/Vitamin Water magnate 50 Cent into the mix. Spy will of course be directed by Paul Feig, because that’s who directs Melissa McCarthy films.

50 Cent has appeared to tepid reception in his semi-autobiographical Get Rich or Die Tryin’ and that movie with Robert DeNiro.

*Googles “50 Cent DeNiro movie”*

HOLY HELL, 50 Cent has been in TWO movies with DeNiro. 2008′s Righteous Kill and 2012′s Freelancers. He’s the new Pesci! 

Perhaps inoculating the film and 50 Cent from his limited range as an actor is the fact that he will be playing yourself. If you can’t play yourself well in a film, then you’re a weirdo.

Fiddy, you hot.

Spy films are generally some of the most boring films ever made. This opinion may open me up to criticism that I don’t appreciate nuance, delicate tension, etc. Whatever. Spy films move at a snail’s pace, and there seems to be little in the way of differentiation between some of the best and some of the worst.

That said, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy was one of the most painful films of the last year to watch. It was long, boring, and at the risk of being redundant, British.

Thank heavens they’re making a sequel to return us to this world. Tim Fellner, head of Working Title studio, made the unsettling statement:

“We are working on another one. Tim Bevan is putting it together as we speak with Peter Straughan and Tomas Alfredson, so yes it’s in development… It did unbelievably well and it didn’t cost hardly anything… But things take time.  Tim is passionate about making sure we do another one.”

And now I’m passionate about stopping it from being made.

Here’s the deal. You like Archer, I like Archer, we all like Archer. If by some chance you don’t like Archer, just go straight to hell.

At any rate, I’ll cut to the chase. Here are five promos for season 3, each more hilarious than the next. If you’re on the fence about watching them, please keep in mind that Pam makes a reference to her offensive vaginal odors. You simply don’t want to miss something like that.

Archer premieres Thursday, January 19, 2012 at 10:00 PM ET/PT on FX.

Heroes

Amour

Hot One

Beat Box

Nickels
