Aziz Ansari, Emma Stone, Andy Samberg, Ed Helms, Seth Rogen, Zach Galifianakis, Ken Jeong, Jamie King and Samuel L. Jackson are all Star Wars fans just like us. Unlike us, they’re all big stars, some of whom are even part of the Star Wars universe itself. They also all appear in a brand new video to help promote a bunch of charitable ventures between Lucasfilm and Stand Up To Cancer. Fans can buy t-shirts, bid on super rare Star Wars collectibles and more with proceeds going to the charity.
Find all the appropriate links as well as the video – which is basically the above stars doing a comedic reenactment of the original trilogy in 3 minutes – after the jump. Read More »

The coming of age sex comedy The To Do List, formerly called The Hand Job, has been on our radar since it began to assemble a massive cast of young comedic talent. Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation, Scott Pilgrim) plays a young woman who wants to head into college with a wealth of sexual experience under her belt, and so spends her post-senior summer trying to check off items on a sexual to-do list. The latest actors to sign on for the shenanigans are Clark Gregg (Marvel Studios’ bedrock player) and Rachel Bilson (The O.C., New York, I Love You). Read More »
Animation fans know Genndy Tartakovsky well. His shows like Dexter’s Laboratory, Samurai Jack and the first Star Wars: Clone Wars have long been revered but those unique talents have rarely been seen off the small screen. That’s about to change in a monstrous way.
Tartakovsky will direct Sony Pictures Animation’s 3D monster-themed family comedy Hotel Transylvania featuring the voice of Adam Sandler as Count Dracula, and a supporting voice cast including Steve Buscemi, Fran Drescher, Cee Lo Green, Kevin James, Andy Samberg, Molly Shannon and David Spade. Hotel Transylvania follows Dracula as he opens a hotel to keep his young daughter occupied with a never ending run of famous monster patrons like Frankenstein, Mummy and the Invisible Man. Things then get turned upside-down when a regular guy drops into the hotel and falls for her. It’s scheduled for release September 21, 2012.

Briefly: Adam Sandler is going to play dad to SNL’s Andy Samberg in I Hate You, Dad, and now the same movie is going to see him eventually shacked up with hot teacher Mary McGarricle, played by Susan Sarandon. Sean Anders and John Morris are directing the film, which is about ” a father (Sandler) who moves in on the eve of the wedding of his son (Samberg) and promptly begins feuding with the bride-to-be.” A few more details are after the break.

We reported on the last round of casting for Celeste and Jesse Forever just the other day, when Emma Roberts, Ari Graynor and Chris Messina joined the cast of the film that follows Rashida Jones (who co-wrote) and Andy Samberg as a couple who tries to maintain their friendship while still living in the same house during their divorce. Now Elijah Wood has signed on as well; THR says he’ll be “Celeste’s business partner, a metrosexual who tries to be her ‘saucy gay friend.’” I’m not sure if that means the character is gay, or if he’s a straight guy who tries to play that role with Celeste (Rashida Jones). Either way, I’ll be happy to see Elijah Wood do outright comedy, since we don’t often see him in that mode on the big screen.
After the break, Colin Hanks continues his hot streak and Paul Schneider breaks his lizard. Read More »
We reported not long ago on Celeste and Jesse Forever, which has Rashida Jones not only starring, but co-writing the script with Will McCormack. Andy Samberg was also in the first round of cast picks, and now Emma Roberts, Chris Messina and Ari Graynor have signed on, too. The film is a comedy that quite a few people will be able to relate to, as it follows a young couple in the middle of a divorce who try to maintain some sort of friendship while still living together.

Like her House Bunny co-star Emma Stone, Anna Faris is one of those actresses who has enough charm and verve to brighten up even the most lackluster material. And it’s mostly for that reason that I’m actually looking forward to What’s Your Number? The upcoming romcom features Faris as a woman who, upon realizing that she has slept with 20 men, revisits her former flames to see if “the one” might’ve been among them. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Lionsgate has just signed a new two-year first-look deal with Tyler Perry, and no wonder: the guy is a machine who turns out films that cost little and make a mint. The director’s latest for Lionsgate will be Good Deeds, which he’ll write, direct, produce and star in, as Glen Deeds, “an affluent and successful entrepreneur who’s about to get married when he becomes enamored with a down-on-her-luck single mom.” That basic plot setup is as well-worn as most of the character types in all Tyler Perry’s films, but that never seems to matter when it comes time to find an audience. Probably helps, in fact. A lot. The film will shoot later this month in Atlanta. [Variety]
After the break, Ryan Reynolds plays a snail and one-time hitmaker Vanilla Ice plays a wedding coordinator. Yup, this is one of those articles. Read More »
