Adding more support to the argument that The Simpsons is enjoying a late-life resurgence, the series just completed a three-day run at The Hollywood Bowl, showcasing all its best musical numbers with an all-star cast of Simpsons voice talent and creators. And what would that showcase be without “The Monorail Song?” Not much. And what would “The Monorail Song” be without writer Conan O’Brien?

Not much, either.

The song was originally performed by Phil Hartman, who was murdered 16 years ago, so Conan took it upon himself to perform the song that he wrote. There’s also some fun banter about how the song has been the bane of Conan’s public existence. I could go into further detail, but just watch the awesome video.

Celebrate ‘UHF’s’ 25th Anniversary With NSFW Pics http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/celebrate-uhfs-25th-anniversary-with-nsfw-pics/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/celebrate-uhfs-25th-anniversary-with-nsfw-pics/#comments Wed, 23 Jul 2014 18:58:10 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=263300 They take it all off for UHF.

Do you love UHF but find it too difficult to masturbate to? So did the folks over at WoodRocket, so they took the liberty of fixing that.

Perfectly timed with “Weird” Al Yankovic’s first #1 album, the cult classic reached a milestone this week. So, with so much attention comes the inevitable. “Weird” Al himself is being parodied. In this case, by porn actresses.

If you’d like to see NSFW pictures of models dressed as characters from UHF, those exist now so you can check out the Weird & Naked UHF gallery. Don’t worry. They didn’t get as weird as they could have. Noone attempts to portray a naked Noodles MacIntyre.

Sorry. MacIntosh.

What happens when you put Weird Al Yankovic in a room with Paul F. Tompkins and a bottle of booze? The next episode of Speakeasy happens, obviously.

In this episode, Yankovic discusses the possibility of playing the Super Bowl halftime show, getting drunk with Down Town Julie Brown, and Coolio’s evil twin.

9 Tim and Eric Regulars Who Need A Cameo In ‘Billion Dollar Movie’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/9-tim-and-eric-regulars-who-need-a-cameo-in-billion-dollar-movie/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/9-tim-and-eric-regulars-who-need-a-cameo-in-billion-dollar-movie/#comments Thu, 24 Feb 2011 20:21:22 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=29629 While it's nice to see some big names attached, long-time followers will all but demand appearances by the creepy-cadre of weirdos that were a fixture on "Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!" Here are nine such regulars that need to make an appearance.

The post 9 Tim and Eric Regulars Who Need A Cameo In ‘Billion Dollar Movie’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

For fans of Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, the recent cameo rumors surrounding Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie felt like Chrimbus come early. There’s nothing official posted on IMDB, but regular guests of the show (John C. Reilly, Zach Galifianakis, Bob Odenkirk, Will Forte) as well as some unexpected names (Will Ferrell, Harrison Ford) are said to be on board. While it’s nice to see some big names attached, long-time followers will all but demand appearances by the creepy-cadre of weirdos that were a fixture on “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!” Here are nine such regulars that need to make an appearance.

Weird Al Yankovic

What Tim and Eric project would be complete with out an appearance from Weird Al Yankovic (a.k.a. Uncle Muscles)? Well, they’ve done plenty of non-Weird Al projects, so I guess the answer is “a lot of them.” Even so, I hope he makes an appearance, and according to some sources, he’s already on board.

Richard Dunn

Yeah. I know. He’s dead. So what? That didn’t stop Heath Ledger from finishing The Dark Knight, or Martin Lawrence from making Big Momma’s: Like Father Like Son. So why not use some movie magic to bring Richard Dunn back from the dead. It worked on Casey.

Palmer Scott

If you love denim, you’ll love Palmer Scott. And if he makes it into the movie, it’s the perfect chance for Tim and Eric to earn product placement money from Levis.

James Quall

While I certainly hope that James Quall makes an appearance in the new film, chances are I’ll never know for sure. After all, his impressions are of such a high quality that he could slip in completely unnoticed.

Neil Hamburger

Comedian Neil Hamburger probably deserves a movie of his own. But for the time being, I’ll settle for a cameo with Tim and Eric.

Michael Q. Schmidt

You probably know Michael Q. Schmidt as the body model for the Mountain Troll character in Harry Potter, or maybe as the man who invented the “Raise the Roof” dance craze. But did you know that he’s also spent some time on “Tim and Eric’s Awesome Show Great Job!”? Well, now you do, and hopefully you’ll get to see him in the movie, as well.

Pierre

Apparently, Pierre’s real name is Ron Auster. Regardless, I’d sure like to meet his dad.

Bob Druwing

Hopefully the guys will manage to work T & E regular Bob Druwing into the film. That is, unless he’s too busy drinking jars of urine or photoshoping pictures of his dead niece.

David Liebe Hart

Recently, while visiting the Le Brea Tar Pits, I was accosted by a crazy man trying to sell me his CDs. Lucky, the crazy person in question was David Liebe Hart, and he was amazing! Sadly, he informed me that he had been laid off by Tim and Eric (probably due to the fact that the show is no longer in production). However I am happy to report that Hart will be making appearing in Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie. At least that’s what he told me. Who the hell knows for sure?

Cinema’s Last Hope: “Weird Al” Yankovic Developing Another Feature Film http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/cinemas-last-hope-weird-al-yankovic-developing-another-feature-film/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/cinemas-last-hope-weird-al-yankovic-developing-another-feature-film/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Move over Frank Darabont. Looks like there may be another Hawaiian-shirted director in town. We reported previously about "Weird Al" Yankovic's deal with Cartoon Network to air whatever lunacy he conjured up. Part of that deal was to create a live-action feature length film, but now Cartoon Network has decided against creating long-form live-action content for television. "Weird" is taking it all in stride though, and doing his best to get this project up on the big screen.As I had previously reported, after years of negotiation, I was able to sign a major production deal with Cartoon Network to provide content for them.  They were primarily interested in live action features, so I pitched them on a movie idea.  They loved it, and gave me the go-ahead to start working on the screenplay.  I worked closely with them for several months, and after submitting my 4th draft, just when I was just about to get the official green light… Cartoon Network let me know that they were no longer in the feature film business.…it’s not entirely bad news – the script went into turnaround, which means I’m free to sell it somewhere else.  (Come to think of it, that was pretty much the exact thing that happened when I was trying to get UHF made.)  So maybe it’ll get produced at some point, maybe it won’t… all I know is, I’ll have a lot more free time this fall.Maybe it will, maybe it won't?! No way, "Weird." This is Hollywood. That apathetic approach won't get you anywhere in this town. If you want to see your dreams on the silverscreen, you need to strap on your accordian, bust into those boardrooms, and show those overpaid dick krinkles just who the eff they're dealing with. Don't leave there until you hear the words "go picture." You're "Weird Al" Yankovic, and you don't take no sh*t from nobody. And make sure they validate your parking. (Al's Blog)

“Weird Al” Yankovic to Take Over a TV Channel for Real This Time http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/weird-al-yankovic-to-take-over-a-tv-channel-for-real-this-time/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/weird-al-yankovic-to-take-over-a-tv-channel-for-real-this-time/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 "Weird Al" Yankovic has signed a production deal with Cartoon Network to broadcast anything he wants on the channel. First up will be a live-action feature film that will NOT star the parodist. According to "Weird", the network asked that the project star a young protagonist. That's a shame. Where will they ever find a youngster with the charm and good looks of "Weird Al" Yankovic? Besides McLovin, of course. I just hope Wheel of Fish is on the primetime schedule.  (Al's Blog via Coming Soon)
