Zach Galifianakis And Paul F. Tompkins Hold The World's Funniest Conversation

It's two of the funniest deadpan comics in the world, talking to each other. You might want to check this out. Made Man has sort of outdone itself with the Speakeasy series, which puts funnyman Paul F. Tompkins in a place where he's most comfortable. Namely, a bar. Bars are generally good spots for humor, but they're made all the better when they include Zach Galifianakis as this particular bar does, or at least this particular set designed to look like a bar. In this exchange, you'll find out, among other things, what "dyslexia of the mouth" is. It involves spitting out a drink when you should be swallowing. This exchange is presumably a promotional device for Zach's new film, The Campaign, but you'd never really know it judging by how damn funny it is. Comedians are funny when they're on stage, but as The Comedians of Comedy demonstrated, they're often at their best when they're just shooting the shit with other comedians. Like they do right here. Enjoy.


Watch Mark-Paul Gosselaar Answer Interview Questions As Zack Morris

How did he react to Screech's violent suicide? Paul F. Tompkins' show Speakeasy has always managed to get a little deeper and weirder than most any other talk show on TV, and he may have raised the bar with his Mark-Paul Gosselaar interview. Tompkins, after asking some softball questions, gets Gosselaar to go through the rest of the interview in character as Zack Morris. Mark-Paul proves to be a pretty great sport about it, and demonstrates a healthy Saved by the Bell trivia knowledge as well.


‘Paul’ Looks Like A Kids Film With Lots Of F-Bombs

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost might be afflicted with the opposite of whatever Samson had. Their long hair totally kills their comedic strength. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost might be afflicted with the opposite of whatever Samson had, as this trailer suggests that their long hair totally kills their comedic strength. The cast alone should make Paul can't-miss funny, with Jason Bateman, Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, and Bill Hader all in supporting roles. Instead, we are left what appears to be something of a generic children's romp save for the gratuitous use of f-bombs. Also, if they referenced the alien's genitals one more time, they would have to call the movie Paul's Balls, which would just be horrible. Unless we're missing a big component of the film (which I doubt, considering this is the third trailer), this will be a big step backwards for Pegg, Frost, director Greg Mottola, and possibly the comedy films in general. Just kidding about that last one, but this film doesn't look great. (IGN)


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!


Spike Jonze Interview With BBC Is More Awkward Than A Typical Spike Jonze Interview

He's about as charming and graceful here as his characters are. To know Spike Jonze is to know that he's a guy that delights in awkwardness. His roles in Wolf of Wall Street and Moneyball play up the playful nervousness that he projects. However, things got a little more than playful and a little uncomfortable when he started to grill a BBC interviewer on her thoughts on his film, Her. These things tend to happen pretty frequently, and I really can't blame even a celebrity for getting edgy or weird during their thirtieth interview of a junket, but to watch Spike Jonze move even a little on the offensive is a rare sight. Like seeing a dolphin teach driver's ed.


New 'Paul' Trailer: Now With Comedy!

I was a little let down when I saw the original UK trailer for Greg Mottola's Paul. With all the poop jokes and nut shots, it felt a little too Kangaroo Jack for my tastes. But after viewing this domestic trailer, I'm looking forward. I was a little let down when I saw the original UK trailer for Greg Mottola's Paul. With all the poop jokes and nut shots, it felt a little too Kangaroo Jack for my tastes. But after viewing this domestic trailer, I'm looking forward to seeing this. U-S-A! U-S-A!! I am a little concerned about Seth Rogen though. I heard he was trying to slim down but I think he's gone too far. His skin is all pale, and his eyes are so bugged out. Not to mention the total lack of body hair. I'm afraid that whatever crash diet he subjected himself to, just wasn't the healthiest route to go. And all for what? To see his name up in lights?? Sadly, another victim of the Fame Monster.


The Alternate Ending To Last Week's 'Breaking Bad'

I like how this purports to be the director's cut. This entire series is one big "director's cut." Here be spoilers, so if you aren't current on Breaking Bad (and what the hell is wrong with you if you're not?), this gives away a pretty important (though we don't know how) plot point. Setting these clips up is always a recipe for disaster. If you have seen the episode, you know the context. And if you haven't, don't watch the damn clip. The beauty of this gag (and the scene in general) is the surprise, which I don't want to ruin, so I'm just going to keep typing things until I hit my word count and can get paid for this article. Jamboree. Hilltop. Wainscoting. Haberdasher. Filament. Filibuster. Contemplate. Willful. Gerrymander. Ok. That was a hundred words with "Gerrymander," so everything you're reading here is a super-secret Screen Junkies Easter egg bonus. We spoil you.
