Is this the result of a night where WB marketing executives partied too hard?
MTV Movie Awards 2010 winners are dominated by "Twilight" and "The Hangover." Each award is humorous and tailors to the MTV target demographic. The acceptance speeches served as a chance…
To get a good view of some of Hollywood's newest crop of comedic talent, all one has to do is take a look at a list of "The Hangover" cast….
Bridges must be getting sick of the indie film world. Bring on the zombie police!
You get not one, not two, not seventeen, but *four* new TV spots for ‘The Hangover Part II’.
Such a shame we didn’t get one with Liam Neeson.
People you will see in ‘The Hangover Part II': Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms. People who you will not see: Liam Neeson. Monkeys you will see: that monkey they now have.
His work with Ted Danson comes first.
Sure it’s the same movie. But even if Todd Philips made a scene-for-scene remake, I’d still pay money to see it.
Check out what craaaaaazy sheeeeet the Wolfpack gets into in Bangkok.
Finally, a decent comedy might be on HBO
The 10 best comedy scenes of 2010 brings you the pleasure of sitting in front of the TV (or the computer) and watching some of the best actors Hollywood has…
For the record, if your film doesn’t feature a monkey it’s an automatic turd that couldn’t open on a tugboat.
With big stars signed on, Adult Swim’s “Tim & Eric Awesome Show” is planning on taking over the big screen… but what will they do to it, exactly?
The Wolfpack is back.
Now that Tim and Eric have ended their Adult Swim show, we’re all wondering where we’re going to get our confusing anti-comedy.
The always dependable (if slightly cheesy) ‘Entertainment Tonight’ paid a visit to the set of ‘The Hangover 2′, and gave us a glimpse of the kind of insanity we’re in store for when it in theaters May 26th.
Zach Galifianakis was finally having a nice time between his ferns until Jennifer Aniston showed up.
Galifianakis and his awesome beard are in talks to co-star with Reynolds in ‘R.I.P.D.’
The Father, the Son, and the Holy Comedian.
We’ve got a couple official pics from the year’s two biggest comedies. See if you can find some humor in them.
In an effort to make frat guys care about voting, Jay Roach is hoping to direct Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis in a political comedy about two candidates in time for the 2012 presidential election.
Due Date is a slow build of a comedy, and it’s effective at that. By the time it gets really crazy, you’re so waiting for it that it’s a cathartic release through the rest of the movie. It also means that the first half could be a bit of a chore if you’re not in it for the long haul.
Ed Helms is trading up. Heather Graham won't be returning for The Hangover sequel, but Jamie Chung is stepping in. The former "Real World" star won't have to mud-wrestle Coral in the "Real World/Road Rules Challenge" Gulag to make her rent.
With Premium Rush and Suckerpunch under her belt, Chung will next head to Thailand to play the fiancée of Ed Helms's character, Stu. Not sure if she's his fiancée at the start of the film or if they become engaged during a night of Thai debauchery. I'm hoping that they don't meet in Thailand. It will be so depressing to find out she has a penis. (THR)
Last night, Zach Galifiankis appeared on "Real Time with Bill Maher" and made a very strong point about the legalization of marjiuana by sparking a doobie on live TV. None of the other guests would indulge, nor would Maher, which must have taken a huge amount of retraint for the weed-loving host. All of you prudes out there, if you take nothing else away from this video, remember this: smoking grass does not make you see dragons.
Check out the clip after the jump…
Zach Galifianakis, everyone's favorite bearded comedian at the moment, is in talks to appear in the upcoming Muppet movie as a person, even though he looks a helluva lot like Fozzy Bear. Robert Downey Jr. dropped the casting news during a press interview for Due Date. That Downey. He's incorrigable.
Galifianakis would join Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Rashida Jones, and Chris Cooper, who have all already been cast. The new film, directed by James Bobin, will "take place within a showbiz setting and follow the Muppets as they try to save their studio from a greedy oil baron (Cooper) who wants to dig for oil. Segel is set to play the lead who reunites the Muppets for one last show to save the studio; Adams is his girlfriend, while Jones will play an ABC executive." No word yet on what Galifianakis would play. Maybe a film director. It's time he put that beard to good use. (ThePlaylist)
Mel Gibson is out of The Hangover 2 before he was even in it. Earlier this week we reported that Gibson was confirmed for a cameo in Todd Phillips's upcoming sequel to his hit The Hangover, but now TMZ is reporting that Gibson got the boot. Phillips had this to say:
"I thought Mel would have been great in the movie and I had the full backing of Jeff Robinov and his team. But I realize filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and this decision ultimately did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew."
It's thought that star Zach Galifianakis might be the one who was most opposed to working with Gibson, which is perplexing considering he's neither Jewish nor one of Mel's exes. Regardless, Gibson won't get a chance at a comeback with a role as a tattoo artist in The Hangover 2, what I hear is the equivalent of saying ten Hail Marys and kicking a terrorist in the balls.
It looks like Zach Galifianakis doesn't want to eat the cooter banana. While appearing recently on the Comedy Death Ray podcast, the notoriously choosey star of G-Force, "Tru Calling," and Out Cold intimated that he's having some "moral" issues with what Todd Phillips is planning to do on The Hangover 2.
“But a movie you’re acting in, you don’t have a lot of control — you just show up and vomit your lines out. I’m not the boss. I’m in a deep protest right now with a movie I’m working on, up in arms about something. But I can’t get the guys to [listen] … I’m not making any leeway.” Galifianakis cut host Scott Aukerman off with an abrupt warning sound as the host began to mention the film’s title, but after Aukerman pressed, “I know you’re filming The Hhhhhhhh … ” Galifianakis admitted, “It has something to do with a movie I’m working on, yeah. I’ll tell you about it later. It’s very frustrating.”
People are assuming that Galifianakis is taking issue with the inclusion of a Mel Gibson cameo in the film. Which is kind of silly. Sure, the man is considered vile right now and this is a case of stunt casting in the highest degree, but in all fairness, he was going to be hungover anway. Can you really blame Todd Phillips if he happens to point a camera at it? (Vulture)
Here's a rumor that might be crazy enough to be true. Page Six is reporting that Mel Gibson will have a cameo in The Hangover 2 as a tattoo artist. He'll shoot his scene on the Bangkok set at Warner Bros. before the production moves to Thailand at the end of the month. Can this really be happening? Does director Todd Phillips really want to take this chance? Should Mel Gibson be left around needles when the slightest peak at a skanky extra could set him off?
When Todd Phillips used Mike Tyson in The Hangover people took notice, so perhaps he's using the same strategy in the sequel. Afterall, Tyson bit a man's ear off, and Gibson hasn't done that yet as far as the public record is concerned. Maybe doing a cameo in an outlandish comedy is the perfect way to get back in people's good graces. After the world accepts him as a tattoo artist it might finally be ready to watch him tackle Jodie Foster's Beaver. (/Film)
On this new episode of "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis," Bruce Willis stops by to be questioned about his poor career choices and Ashton Kutcher. John McClane seems genuinely jaded by the celebrity lifestyle he's lived for so many years. It used to be all bitches and blow, and now he's just waiting around for the phone to ring. If Bruce Willis wasn't still extremely awesome I might tend to believe this. I have a feeling it's still bitches and maybe a little less blow considering it's no longer the 80s.
Watch Willis in the hot seat after the jump…
