Philip Seymour Hoffman's tragic death occurred while he was nearing the end of his work on the two-part 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' movies, and while he only had seven days of filming left, those days included at least one key scene. We initially thought that these final scenes would be rewritten to exclude the character of Plutarch Heavensbee, but according to the NY Post, the filmmakers are planning to recreate the late actor with special effects to keep his presence intact.
Considering how Radio Shack has been out of the limelight for the past decade or so, it's amusing to see that the company has some level of self-awareness. The new Radio Shack 2014 Super Bowl ad is chock full of self deprecating humor and, in a crazy little turn, most of it comes courtesy of '80s film and TV characters.
The best of 'SNL''s commercial parodies are always those that make you cringe a little. Not because they're bad, but because you recognize just enough painful truth in them to dredge up a memory or two. With Valentine's Day around the corner, the most recent episode of everyone's favorite late night variety show tackled a subject that should be familiar to anyone who has ever been in a relationship: forgetting to get a gift for your loved one.
Race and comedy don't always mix, but with Black History Month upon us, 'SNL' decided to take no prisoners and create a music video that has the potential to be one of the most offensive things the show has ever done. It's a credit to the writers and to performers Keenan Thompson, Jay Pharoah and Sasheer Zamata that this thing works and that it's as funny as it is.
After years behind the Weekend Update desk, the terrific Seth Meyers is leaving 'SNL' to pursue other projects. And by pursue other projects, we mean "take over as host of 'Late Night' while Jimmy Fallon ascends to 'The Tonight Show.'" Of course, something as important, popular and prominent as Meyers doesn't depart without some kind of send-off and the show sent him off in style.
There is no comedy we're looking forward to more in 2014 than the reunion of Schmidt and Jenko, and there's nothing the newly released '22 Jump Street' poster can do to change our minds. The one-sheet could be completely blank and we'd still be excited because '21 Jump Street' remains one of the funniest movies of the past few years, and with everyone back for the sequel our expectations are hight.
Few people are as welcome on our televisions as Terry Crews and few felt creatures warm our hearts quite like the Muppets. In other words, if you want to sell us a Toyota, there are far worse spokespeople (and spokespuppets) to use. In the grand tradition of modern Super Bowl ads, the presumably very expensive spot starring these guys is online in advance of the big game, giving everyone who doesn't watch football a chance to remember how much they like the Muppets and that really funny guy who used to play sports-ball once upon a time.
And, of course, a chance to BUY TOYOTA BUY TOYOTA BUY TOYOTA.
Sometimes, 'SNL' is at its absolute best when it decides to go fully and truly off the rails. When the show does abandon reality, it often does so in the final sketch of the night, where things are allowed to get crazier and funkier since more easily unsettled audiences tend to be asleep. Of course, this is just a long-winded way of saying that no sketch has dominated the final segments in recent years quite like the "former porn stars," which pushes the weirdness to truly strange and amazing levels.
Andy Samberg's biggest contribution to the 'SNL' legacy were his digital shorts and music videos, where he took the show's format off the stage to create hilarious pre-recorded material that was primed to go viral all over the internet. With his departure, the show has continued to produce short films and recorded sketches, but Kyle Mooney and Beck Bennett’s work has consistently stood out from the rest of the pack, mainly because of how different it feels from the typical 'SNL' short.
