Here's The Trailer For The New Christopher Guest HBO Series 'Family Tree'

Surprisingly endearing, by Christopher Guest standards. While it's got all the cast members of a Christopher Guest film, his foray into cable television appears to have more heart and plot than his mockumentary films do. That could be a good and bad thing, as a quirky, improvised TV show with no direction probably wouldn't be the most durable project (the good part), but replacing Guest's cracker-dry wit with some sappy music and a heartfelt family reunion is a little outside his fanbase's comfort zone (potentially bad). Nonetheless, it's HBO and Christopher Guest, so let's assume everything is going to be okay until we have more concrete cause for concern. Plus, if anyone can toe the line of funny and heartwarming, it's Chris O'Dowd.

There's Good And Bad On Every Side In 'Game Of Thrones' Season Four Trailer

April 6th! HBO revealed a trailer for Game of Thrones season four and it's nothing short of ohmygodIwannawatchthisshowrightnow. The trailer hints that more of your favorites will meet horrible ends when Daeneyrs informs Jorah that whether good or bad, those who oppose her have a choice. Dragon or unich, which would you like to be murdered by? We're caught up with each faction. Daeneyrs has grown stronger. Joffrey is still a dick. Jon Snow is still fighting Wildlings. Arya is still seeking revenge. Bran is still doing stuff in the forest. Stannis is still depending on dark magic. Jamie tries on a new hand. And let's assume Theon is trying on his own prosthetic. Wow. George R.R. Martin really knows how to stretch out a narrative. It also looks like this could be the season where acting terrible and entitled catches up to the Lannisters as a man from Tywin's past arrives looking for revenge. How that will unfold, I'm not sure but I've been warned by book readers that a storm of crazy is on the horizon. I can't wait to see what happens next. But not badly enough to actually read. Ewww, gross.


John Cena Shows He Can Actually Improvise In This 'Trainwreck' Featurette

Maybe we're just laughing because we're scared of what he will do if we don't. While John Cena has dabbled in the action fare typically done by wrestling stars, a featurette from the upcoming Trainwreck shows that he actually has some decent comedic chops on the spot. Maybe chalk it up to adlibbing in front of tens of thousands of wrestling fans. Or maybe, just maybe, John Cena is secretly a really funny guy. If so, let's get him rounded up as the next Jonah Hill. I'm sure Cena would love to be known as the next Jonah Hill. It's a relief to know that someone with that many muscles can even maintain a sense of humor. (A.V. Club)


The 'Star Wars' Porn Parody Looks Funnier Than The 'Family Guy' One

This won't ruin your childhood as badly as the prequels did. Vivid Video's porn version of Stars Wars prides itself on having the highest budget ever for an X-rated spoof. From watching this trailer, I'd estimate it around 4,000 bucks. Though this trailer doesn't hint at any of the sexy escapades that the rebel forces take part in, I'd totally see this. In fact, just cut out all the parts with wangs ding-donging around and I'd be a regular viewer of XXX parodies. The cheap effects combined with the bad acting and C-3PO's sassiness are a winning combo. Are we certain that there is any sex in this movie? Maybe we're confused and XXX means bad effects and direction. If so, Van Helsing was erroneously rated. (Topless Robot)


Sarah Hyland From 'Modern Family' Just Texted To Say I Love You

Keep in mind, she doesn't really love you. Check out this ne Break Original video, I Just Texted to Say I Love You, starring Modern Family's Sarah Hyland. It's just like the song, "I Just Called To Say I Love You", but ya know, all techie and stuff, because calling people is for losers...losers like your grandparents. So help me God, I feel like a real creep staring at Sarah Hyland every time I watch Modern Family. But come to find out, she's 20 years old, so I don't have to feel bad at all! Hooray for small victories!


Enjoy The Awkwardness With This Compilation Of Letterman's Weirdest Guests

Watching him was more fun than watching the guests. Perhaps what made Letterman stand out amongst the sea of other talk show hosts was that he didn't suffer fools gladly. If someone was being weird or difficult, David Letterman would push and poke at them, rather than serve as their doormat. Sometimes it was too much for viewers to bear so close to bedtime, but sometimes it just made for captivating television. We knew that if anyone was going to serve as a stand-in for the viewer to push back against indulgent celebrities, it would be Dave. So here's a montage of his weirdest guests. As fun as the guests are to watch and mock, it's just as fun to watch David Letterman push back with that "What in the hell...?" look on his face. Here it is: (A.V. Club)


Christopher Walken's Face Though: 'Peter Pan Live!' First Look

A glimpse into Johnny Depp's future. Today we are greeted to by NBC to a first look at their upcoming musical event, Peter Pan Live! Allison Williams confuses America's penises with her portrayal of Peter Pan, while Christopher Walken's eyes can't hide a shame Johnny Depp doesn't possess as he is made to stare into a camera lens while decked out in full Captain Hook garb. Last year, NBC was pleasantly surprised when their similar production, Sound of Music Live!, unexpectedly dominated in the ratings and set social media ablaze. I anticipate that Peter Pan Live! will receive an even better response. Who wouldn't want to tweet about Christopher Walken being eaten by a crocodile? This is NBC's Sharknado.
