the disaster artist review

If there’s one opinion we really want to hear about The Disaster Artist, it’s from the director of The Room. Considering Tommy Wiseau lived it, he probably has more than a few thoughts on how actor-director James Franco has depicted him and his beloved bad movie. After seeing the adaptation of actor Greg Sestero‘s book at the SXSW Film Festival, he only took issue with .1% of the movie.

Below, find out Wiseau’s thoughts on The Disaster Artist.

Hulu presented a Future Man panel to the Television Critics Association with creator Seth Rogen, showrunner Ben Karlin, executive producers Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shafir, and cast members Josh Hutcherson (who is also an EP), Eliza Coupe and Derek Wilson. Hutcherson plays Josh, a janitor who wins a video game, which causes time travelers from the future, Tiger (Coupe) and Wolf (Wilson), to come to tell him the game was designed to find a savior for the future. Josh immediately calls out The Last Starfighter.

The Lion King Footage

Jon Favreau is directing a live-action remake of Disney’s animated classic The Lion King, and though we’ve heard about some of the cast members, the D23 Expo brought the official announcement of the entire cast.

The biggest news actually isn’t official yet, and that’s word that X-Men franchise star Hugh Jackman has landed the role of the villain Scar, the brother of the Pride Rock king Mufasa and uncle to the cub prince Simba, but we’re not really sure if that’s true or not. Find out more about The Lion King remake cast below as well as new details about the project. Read More »

The Lonely Island Music Festival Comedy with Seth Rogen

If you’ve been paying attention to the internet over the past couple days, you’ve likely noticed the trending topic “Fyre Festival” come up more than once. That’s because the music festival on the island of Fyre Cay in the Bahamas (which doesn’t really exist) created by Ja Rule and Billy McFarland featuring performances by Blink 182, Migos and Major Lazar, marketed towards the super rich party people of the Instagram generation, turned into a complete nightmare.

Attendees described it as a Lord of the Flies scenario that looked much like a refugee camp. There was a shortage of food, incomplete lodging areas, looting of booze, even more booze given away for free when attendees were extremely unhappy at the total lack of infrastructure, some parts of the festival were overrun with rats and their droppings, and eventually a serious lack of flights for people to abandon the festival when it was completely canceled after the first day.

Funnily enough, it turns out Seth Rogen is working with The Lonely Island on a music festival comedy where the festivities go horribly wrong. Find out more after the jump. Read More »

The Lion King Remake Cast - Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner as Timon and Pumbaa

Today, Walt Disney Pictures set release dates for a bunch of their movies coming to theaters over the next couple years, and that included their live-action remake of the modern animated classic The Lion King. Director Jon Favreau is tackling the project after remaking The Jungle Book for Disney last year with Donald Glover taking on the role of Simba and James Earl Jones reprising the role of his father Mufasa, with Beyonce being eyed to play Nala. Now two of the most important characters in the movie have been cast as well.

Undoubtedly the most entertaining characters in The Lion King are the meerkat and warthog duo known as Timon and Pumbaa. The characters were voiced by Nathan Lane and Ernie Sabella respectively in the 1994 animated musical, but in the live-action remake, they’ll be voiced by Billy on the Street host Billy Eichner and blockbuster comedy star Seth Rogen.

Billy on the Street - Seth Rogen Death Prank

Comedian Billy Eichner is one of those entertainers that you either love or you hate. He’s boisterous, excitable, obnoxious, flamboyant, and I just love him for it. He enjoyed a stint on Parks and Recreation in the comedy show’s later seasons, but he’s probably best known for his show Billy on the Street. What started as a recurring Funny or Die series turned into a full fledged TV show on truTV, and one of the recent segments is one of the most awkwardly funny things you’ll watch today.

In a new episode of Billy on the Street, our loud host is telling people that Seth Rogen has died and asking them for their feelings on the matter. Seems pretty cruel, but what makes it all right is the Sausage Party and Neighbors star is on hand for every bit of it,  disguised as one of Billy Eichner’s cameramen who trail him as he breaks the bad news. Like I said, it’s hilarious and weird.

green-hornet-reboot

The Green Hornet is getting another chance on the big screen. While Michel Gondry and Seth Rogen‘s 2011 superhero comedy didn’t quite connect with audiences and critics, director Gavin O’Connor (The Accountant) plans on taking the character in a completely different direction for Paramount Studios. The Miracle and Warrior director wants to make his version of Brett Reid “a hunter at the top of the Special Operations food chain.”
