One of the staples of comedy releases on home video is a special feature that contains a reel of alternate jokes and lines from various scenes. They’re called “line-o-ramas” on home video releases for movies from the likes of Judd Apatow, Adam McKay, and Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, but we usually don’t get to see this same practice from television shows. That changes today though.
On HBO’s comedy Silicon Valley, series regular T.J. Miller is known for delivering some pretty brutal insults by way of his character Erlich Bachman. The arrogant partial owner of Pied Piper recently dished out a perfect string of age-based insults when meeting his new boss, “Action” Jack Barker, played by friend of the site Stephen Tobolowsky. But what we saw in the final cut was only a small fraction of what Miller threw out there while they were shooting. Thankfully, a slew of alternate takes has been made available online for you to watch right now. Read More »

The Nice Guys has a lot going for it. It’s got a A-list pairing in Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, and the verve and style of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Iron Man 3 mastermind Shane Black. Oh, and it’s really, really good — a lovable mix of cynicism and sincerity, dropped against a cool ’70s noir backdrop and liberally sprinkled with humor and charisma. What it doesn’t have going for it, however, is a recognizable brand name. It’s not a sequel to an already-beloved movie, like Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising or Captain America: Civil War. It’s not even based on a phenomenally popular property from another medium, like The Angry Birds Movie.
So what are these schmucks to do? In a field like that, how is a scrappy little action-comedy like The Nice Guys supposed to compete? That’s exactly what Nice Guys producer Joel Silver would like to know, as he loudly (and hilariously) rants to Gosling and Crowe in a meta bit of The Nice Guys marketing. They don’t really come up with any good answers, but it sure is fun to watch them try. Read More »
If you ever watched The Colbert Report, then you know that Stephen Colbert is a huge fan of the work of author J.R.R. Tolkien. Colbert knows every single bit of trivia about Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Silmarillion and more to the point that he can recite excerpts from the books. However, the Tolkien trivia master has finally been stumped…by Ryan Gosling‘s mother.
Ryan Gosling stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night, along with Russell Crowe, to promote The Nice Guys hitting theaters next week. The actor brought with him a trivia question from his mother, and Colbert was not able to give the right answer. Hit the jump to see the Stephen Colbert Tolkien trivia challenge from Gosling’s mother. Read More »

Steve Rogers may be a proud son of Brooklyn, but even he can’t afford a place in his beloved hometown anymore, as he admits in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Or so he assumes. It turns out the since Captain America was never officially relieved of duty after he went under the ice in 1945, he’d be entitled to several decades’ worth of back pay from the U.S. Army — as confirmed by an actual U.S. Army spokesman. Find out how much our government would (theoretically) owe this (fictional) all-American hero below. Read More »

There may not be a film as surprisingly satisfying that exceeds so many expectations as Deadpool. The movie took 11 years to get off the ground after the character was thrown onto the screen carelessly in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and for fans who wanted to see the real Merc with a Mouth on the big screen, it was well worth the wait.
Now that Deadpool has hit Blu-Ray and DVD as of yesterday, it’s time for Honest Trailers to step in and do some mocking of their own. But as we’ve seen, Deadpool doesn’t follow anybody’s rules, he invades his own Honest Trailer to mock himself. And yes, Ryan Reynolds really stepped in to do some voiceover for the Deadpool Honest Trailer, complete with his own movie trailer voice.

Whether you’re a Democrat, Republican or anything in between, I think we can all agree that this election season has been an absolute nightmare. But don’t worry, because there’s only six more months of hell to endure before we elect a new president. Usually Saturday Night Live helps make this process easier to swallow by giving us some laughs to go along with the politics, but this year the election has been so ridiculous that the truly quality political satire sketches have been few and far between, simply because they can’t be more outlandish than the real election.
However, last night Saturday Night Live rounded up a classic character to bring some solid political satire to the table by having Dana Carvey return as his famous character the Church Lady. She starts off by taking some jabs at the sinful fashions on display at the Met Gala, but then she brings on guests Ted Cruz (played by Taran Killam) and Donal Trump (played by Darrell Hammond) and chastises them in exactly the way you would expect.

When Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele announced the end of their Comedy Central show Key and Peele last year, the official line was that they just wanted to move on to other things. But maybe the real reason for their professional breakup was something much more sinister. Maybe their relationship was irreparably damaged when it turned out one of them is — gasp! — a theater texter, while the other one just wants to be left alone to watch his movies in peace.
Well, probably not. But the two do find themselves hilariously at odds in a new “Don’t Talk” PSA from the Alamo Drafthouse. Which they recorded to promote their new movie together, Keanu. So yes, you can breathe a sigh of relief, they haven’t really turned against each other after all. Watch the Keanu Alamo Drafthouse PSA after the jump. Read More »
The Nice Guys is coming to theaters in just one month, which means we’re going to see Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe making the rounds on late night television and various other promotional avenues to help build the buzz around the movie. The latter is just coming off hosting Saturday Night Live (while Gosling hosted late last year), and now the two are making more comedy together with a series of webisodes following the two actors as they go into therapy together. If you weren’t convinced that these two have chemistry from the trailers for The Nice Guys, these funny videos ought to do it.
