Comedy website CollegeHumor, best known for its viral shorts, is now looking to bring its irreverent sense of humor to theaters with its debut big-screen feature Coffee Town. Whether the company will actually succeed in its goal to become the next National Lampoon remains to be seen, but the promising array of talent they’ve lined up should help move things along.
Arrested Development writer/producer Brad Copeland has been hired to direct the film, his first, from a script he wrote, while Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Steve Little (Eastbound & Down), Ben Schwartz (House of Lies, I guess but he’ll always be Jean-Ralphio to me) and Josh Groban are lined up to star. It’s not the highest profile roster I’ve ever seen, but it’s none too shabby for a company making its first foray into film, either. More details after the jump.

The last film by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, I Love You, Phillip Morris, took quite a winding path to get to theaters in the US. But their follow-up, a romantic comedy called Crazy, Stupid, Love, was made with Warner Bros. and is already set to release this summer. The film stars Steve Carell as a 40-something guy whose relationship with his wife (Julianne Moore) disintegrates, leading him to seek image rehab advice from lothario Ryan Gosling.
The trailer is out now, and it lurks just after the break. Read More »
The Steve Carell / Ryan Gosling comedy that used to be called Crazy, Stupid Love still doesn’t have a new title, but it continues to add actors.
Marisa Tomei and Josh Groban are now in the John Requa and Glenn Ficarra-directed film alongside Emma Stone, Analeigh Tipton and Kevin Bacon. As we’ve said before, the film follows Carell as “a father whose life unravels as he deals with spousal problems and tries to manage his relationship with his children.” [Variety]
After the break, one more film for Clive Owen and one less for Lindsay Lohan. Read More »

As a retaliation, Kimmel has recorded a music video himself, announcing that he’s F**king Ben Affleck!
