As a fan of Saturday Night Live, I’ve always wanted to see the sketches that end up getting cut for time. Since SNL is a live show, some sketches end up getting cut if the show runs long. But those cut sketches are usually recorded in the two-hour dress rehearsal that happens before the show airs live at 11:30 Eastern time.
Since SNL has found new life online with sketches that go viral with every new episode, there’s finally a place for cut sketches to see the light of day. And we’re lucky enough today that one such sketch has surface online months after the original episode aired. In the sketch, Chris Pratt plays Crank and The Transporter Jason Statham, selling a fine product called Jason Steakums, and they sound delicious. Watch Chris Pratt as Jason Statham after the jump!

There are far too many great talents who have left us all too soon. Fame can be hard to tame, and its satisfaction can sometimes only last so long until you’re looking for other outlets, like drugs or alcohol, to keep that emotional and mental high going. Such was the success and ultimate tragedy of Saturday Night Live cast member Chris Farley.
Now the life and legacy of the late comedy star is examined in a new documentary called I Am Chris Farley, featuring interviews with those who knew him best. Fellow SNL stars like Mike Myers and Adam Sandler chime in, comedians like Bob Odenkirk and Bob Saget reminisce, and his best friend and frequent co-star David Spade has plenty to say too. If you’re a fan of Farley, this one is going to be tough to watch without shedding a tear or two.

This year marks the anniversary of several movies, including the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, the 40th anniversary of Jaws and the 25th anniversary of Gremlins 2: The New Batch. But there’s another film that may not be quite as celebrated, but deserves to be honored for its 30th anniversary this year: the murder mystery comedy Clue.
Based on the classic board game of the same name, the film brings to life the strange and perplexing murder mystery that keeps getting worse as the stormy night carries on. If there’s one piece of evidence to show that adapting a board game into a movie can work, it’s Clue. And Gallery 1988 is paying tribute to the movie with a collection of fantastic, original artwork.

Earlier this year, we learned that Jon Stewart would be leaving Comedy Central’s long-running news satire program The Daily Show. Comedy Central ran the gamut of talented comedians to replace Stewart on the show, including names like Chris Rock and Amy Poehler, before they picked correspondent Trevor Noah to take the gig.
However, one name that we didn’t hear about officially as a candidate was Amy Schumer, the comedienne who has skyrocketed to fame over the past few years thanks to her stellar sketch comedy show Inside Amy Schumer. It turns out Schumer was offered the job, but she actually ended up turning it down. Find out why Amy Schumer turned down The Daily Show after the jump! Read More »

Channing Tatum speaks his mind, and we love it. When asked about Jupiter Ascending during a recent Reddit AMA, he professed to be just as baffled as the rest of us were by that movie. And today, talking to Howard Stern, he was very clear about G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, saying “I fucking hate that movie.”
Stern also asked Tatum about the report that he’s developing his own Ghostbusters movie with the Russo Brothers. The actor talked about the project, a little bit, but mostly just gave off the impression that things are still very much up in the air at Sony.
Update: During junket interviews for Magic Mike XXL, Tatum’s creative partner Reid Carolin talked about Ghostbusters, saying “we’re not doing that any more.” Further details are below.

Last summer, on the New Orleans set of American Ultra, a bunch of other journalists and I played a game. Lionsgate allowed us to tweet about being on the set of the film – which is a rarity on a set visit – and the results were astounding. You see, American Ultra stars Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart. And Stewart has a massive and rabid online following. With every tweet about being on set, we’d see who get get the most interaction, the most retweets and favorites. It was fun and I believe the winner was someone who got numbers well into the three hundreds.
You can read our full report from the set of American Ultra here but, below, you can read a transcription of the group’s interview with Eisenberg and Stewart. You get to read their playful interactions, fascinating insights and most importantly – thoughts on the film, which opens August 21. Check it out below. Read More »
