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!

In Spy, Jason Statham plays a parody version of the over-the-top badasses he plays in most of his other films. But now it sounds like he’s ready to return to playing it straight.
Statham confirms he’s still set to star in Viva La Madness, the sequel to 2004’s Layer Cake, for which he’s also a producer. In fact, he says it’s aiming to shoot in 2016. Get his Layer Cake sequel update after the jump. Read More »

Melissa McCarthy is funny pretty much all of the time, but she’s never better than when she’s working with Paul Feig. Following the massive successes of Bridesmaids and The Heat, the pair are reuniting again this summer for the James Bond sendup Spy.
McCarthy plays Susan Cooper, a deskbound CIA analyst supporting the agency’s suave star spy (Jude Law) on his missions, she never gets to have the glory. Until, that is, the usual James Bond types (including Jason Statham) are targeted by a villain (Rose Byrne) who claims to know all the identities of all the agents. With no other options, the CIA reluctantly promotes her to field agent.
Watch the new Spy trailer after the jump.

Furious 7, directed by James Wan, opens in a couple weeks, and Universal has dropped a new clip. We saw the film last weekend at SXSW, and didn’t love it, but can’t argue with the fact that it gives some fans what they want, and acts as a respectful send-off to the late Paul Walker.
But this clip has nothing to do with the latter, and everything to do with the former. It shows off an encounter between Jason Statham, playing the film’s big bad, and The Rock, playing the film’s sweatiest law-enforcement machine. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The summer starts early this year when James Wan‘s Furious 7 hits theaters on April 3.
The seventh film in the Fast and Furious franchise picks up where part 6 (and part 3) left off, taking the franchise into the unknown for the first time in years. Dom (Vin Diesel), Brian (Paul Walker) and the rest of the team will once again join up with Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and others to battle a new foe, played by Jason Statham. Kurt Russell joins the action, as do Djmon Hounsou and Ronda Rousey. Lucas Black returns, too. It promises to be the biggest Fast and Furious film yet, which is saying something if you’ve seen the last two.
This week, a few new clips have made their way online. One is a new international Furious 7 trailer that has a few new shots at Race Wars – a callback to the first film – and then there’s a new TV spot. Check them out below. Read More »
If the Super Bowl spot wasn’t enough for you, here’s a new Furious 7 trailer. This trailer, which runs nearly three minutes, has just about everything. First up, the late Paul Walker is front and center, which begs the question of how long-time fans will be able to watch this sequel and not break down at least a little bit.
Beyond Waker, there are a couple of huge action setpieces teased within. There’s the family angle, with Vin Diesel‘s Dom as the unlikely patriarch. There’s a whole cluster of plot threads, most prominent of which is the revenge angle featuring Jason Statham as the brother of Fast & Furious 6‘s Luke Evans character — and Kurt Russell is around to tell everyone just how screwed they are to have a pissed-off Statham on their tail. Check out the trailer below.
