After teaming up for the raunchy comedy series Eastbound & Down on HBO, director David Gordon Green and star Danny McBride return to the network this summer with Vice Principals. This time the show follows Danny McBride as a vice princpial competing with Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight) for the recently vacated position as principal at Lincoln High School, and these two childish grown-ups aren’t beyond sabotaging each other in inappropriate ways.

In the new glimpse for the show, Murray has some advice for McBride and Goggins before they start competing for his job. Watch below. Read More »
The recent Game of Thrones episode “The Door” was simultaneously a gamechanger. Some fans are exciting about the mind-blowing revelation that came from the episode which also gave us an origin story for the character Hodor, who can only speak his own name in different inflections. Others weren’t pleased with what the events of the episode mean for the future. We’ll leave any spoiler details about this episode until after the jump, but for those in the know, this recently revealed Hodor doorstop is something Game of Thrones fans will want to use in their home.

It’s been an up-and-down year for Fox’s X-Men franchise so far. Deadpool got 2016 off to a strong start with its record-breaking run, while X-Men: Apocalypse has proven to be a disappointment both critically and commercially. But here’s another spot of good news for all you mutant lovers: FX has just given a series order to Legion, an X-Men TV spinoff from Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley.
Dan Stevens, of Downton Abbey and The Guest fame, plays David Haller, “a troubled young man who may be more than human.” (Fans of the X-Men comics might know the character as the son of Charles Xavier, a.k.a. Professor X.) Along with the announcement comes the first photo of Stevens in character, which you can see below. Read More »
We were due for a table-setting episode of Game of Thrones. The previous two hours were so full of vital revelations and so jam-packed with action that a little bit of wheel-spinning was inevitable. “The Door” and “Book of the Stranger” were all about pulling off a series of complicated maneuvers that had already been carefully set up. “Blood of My Blood” is all about setting up the dominoes that will come crashing down in the home stretch of season six.
And while nothing huge happened, there’s still a great deal to talk about.

Yesterday, NBC followed through with their latest tradition of an annual Red Nose Day special, a star-studded fundraiser that helps support projects in some of the neediest communities in the U.S. and some of the poorest communities in the world. All of your favorite stars turned out for this event last night including Elton John, Julia Roberts, Will Ferrell, Jack Black, Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Jeff Goldblum, Margot Robbie and literally dozens more.
Not all of the fun from last night’s show is worth highlighting, but there were two segments that we just couldn’t pass up. One features the return of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele to TV sketch comedy while the other has Norman Reedus and Andrew Lincoln from The Walking Dead imagining their own Red Nose Day special akin to the Star Wars Holiday Special.
Watch both the Key & Peele and Walking Dead Red Nose Day video after the jump. Read More »
