Christina Applegate (Anchorman), Alyssa Milano (“My Name is Earl”), Larry Campbell (Wedding Crashers) and Vanessa Angel (Kingpin) are the latest batch of actors and actresses to be announced for the Farrelly Brothers‘ comedy Hall Pass, which began shooting this week in Atlanta. (With Atlanta standing in for New England.) They join the already announced cast of Owen Wilson, Jenna Fischer, Amanda Bynes, Jason Sudeikis, Stephen Merchant and J.B. Smoove.
It’s a crazy, mixed up world and we are thankful for movies, sans The Tooth Fairy, that offer proof. Weekend Weirdness cocks its disoriented head to examine such flicks, whether it’s a new trailer for a provocative indie or an interview. In this installment: An exclusive trailer for TV Carnage‘s Let’s Work it Out and a chat with its ski-masked creator, Pinky; an equally cool chat about movies and Hollywood with The Arab Parrot, one of our favorite people and photographers out there capturing bleary eyed L.A. and N.Y.C. culture.
In college, it was unwritten law that a house party wasn’t worthy of House Party unless you woke up and stumbled past a TV turned upside down in a puddle of fluids as it resiliently played a TV Carnage DVD. Such DVDs were the new late night color test for stupid-smart wasteoids, an aughts cult sensation that arrived in the shape of legit packaging and artwork with names like Casual Fridays and A Sore For Sighted Eyes. All anyone knew, or cared to know, was that the DVDs were the obsessive, homemade works of a guy named Pinky; a person who didn’t seem to grasp “copyright” while composing and editing hundreds, if not thousands, of hours of bad TV/VHS into hilarious masterworks of sublimation.
As TV Carnage’s popularity grew, the signature ski mask of Pinky was lifted. An online search today will inform that Pinky is Derrick Beckles, the filmmaker and actor whom /Film readers might recognize from Truth Campaign commercials. One of the founders, alongside Gavin McInnes, of the irreverent Brooklyn site, Street Boners and TV Carnage, Beckles recently directed a music video for the song, “No You Don’t” by the band Islands. It just so happens to star TV Carnage mega-hearter Michael Cera. With his latest DVD, Let’s Work It Out, due mid-January, TV Carnage is going full-cardio. Imagine the neon sweat from ’80s work-out videos by celebs ranging from John Travolta to O.J. Murderer blasted into a hall of mirrors, sucked into a syringe, and then stabbed into your brain’s abdomen. Beckles chatted with /Film and exclusively gave us the first trailer. It’s all splattered below for your weekend enjoyment.

The Hero Complex caught up with Dan Aykroyd, who provided a couple updates on Ghostbusters 3. Aykroyd says that Ivan Reitman is “too busy as a mega-producer” to helm the film, and that his second choice would be Ghostbusters co-star and Groundhog Day/Analyize This director Harold Ramis.

One of the big selling points of the upcoming Ghostbusters video game is that the original Ghostbusters team, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson, have recorded new voice performances for the official sequel. It has been known for a while now that Rick Moranis would not be participating due to his “retirement.” Sigourney Weaver seemed open to the idea of returning for a third Ghostbusters film, but apparently she isn’t interested in playing games.
Alyssa Milano will replace Weaver as the love interest of Dr. Peter Venkman in the game. Milano will play the the role of Dr. Ilyssa Selwyn, a new character that has been created to replace “Dana Barrett”. I’m fine with Milano replacing Weaver on the small screen, but lets hope this sort of think doesn’t leak onto the big screen. GameTrailers has a video featuring Milano talking about her role in the game, which I have embedded after the jump.

MGM and Lakeshore have released the final theatrical one-sheet for Pathology.Â It’s much better than the teaser poster that was released at comic Con.

Milo Ventimiglia and Alyssa Milano star. Pathology will hit theaters on April 18th 2008.
