Clooney is teaming with Rescue Me creator Peter Tolan and director Bennett Miller on the project, described as a dark comedy. Get all the details on the George Clooney TV show after the jump. Read More »
Stephen Colbert is finishing up his long run on The Colbert Report, and the guy is going out with a bang. Colbert is a tolkien super-fan — his enthusiasm for Tolkien got him a role in The Hobbit, and has seen him grace the cover of Entertainment Weekly in costume as several Hobbit characters. One of his last interviews is among his biggest, as he got the dragon Smaug to show up for a chat. To the credit of everyone involved, from the WETA animation team to Smaug mo-cap and voice actor Benedict Cumberbatch, this goes all the way. A couple jokes edge toward serious territory, but they play right into Colbert’s long-standing conservative character. And Cumberbatch, er, Smaug, gets in a few choice lines at the expense of his Hobbit co-stars. Below, check out the video in which Colbert interviews Smaug.

Sony’s first two Jump Street movies were a cinematic comedy reboot of a TV drama popular in the ’80s and ‘90s. The next Jump Street pic will be that, too, of course, but it might also be a revival of a sci-fi film series dating back to 1997.
The studio is reportedly considering making 23 Jump Street (or whatever it winds up being called) a Men in Black crossover. Maybe the space-set 2121 Jump Street wasn’t such a farfetched idea after all. Hit the jump for more on the potential Jump Street Men in Black crossover. Read More »

This time around, the characters played by Craig Robinson, Clark Duke and Rob Corddry misuse their amazing toy and decide to go back into the past to fix the problems they create.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 opens February 20 and you can watch the new trailer and see the new poster below. Read More »
