30 rock revival

Revivals are hot right now – just look at the ratings of the Roseanne revival for proof. With revival fever sweeping the land, is there a chance of a 30 Rock revival in the future? Jane Krakowski says there’s “definitely been talk” of such an idea. Because sure, why not?

Tracy Morgan What Men Want

Did you know Paramount is creating a new riff on Nancy Meyers’ romantic comedy What Women Want? This one is called What Men Want, and it stars Taraji P. Henson (Hidden Figures) in the lead role as a woman who can suddenly hear the thoughts of every man she comes in contact with. That already sounds a hundred times better than the original, which, if you’ll recall, starred Mel Gibson as a mind-reading womanizer. (History was not kind to that film.)

But now, the new movie has gained a hilarious new cast member: former Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan. Read about the new Tracy Morgan What Men Want character below.

The Clapper trailer

Ed Helms hasn’t quite been able to parlay his success on The Office onto the big screen, but perhaps his new film The Clapper will change that. The quirky romantic comedy has Helms playing a professional infomercial audience member who finds himself smitten with a gas station attendant played by Amanda Seyfried. Their romance is challenged, however, when a late night talk show host turns Helms’ world upside down. The Clapper trailer awaits you below.

‘Fist Fight’ Trailer: It’s Charlie Day vs. Ice Cube

Fist Fight trailer: Ice Cube and Charlie Day

Why should teenagers get to be the only ones embroiled in high school drama? In Fist Fight, the battle is between two teachers. Mr. Campbell is your typical Charlie Day character, which is to say (as Kumail Nanjiani puts it in the trailer) he is “probably a nice guy, but a bit of a worm and a sneak.” And Mr. Strickland is your typical Ice Cube character, which is to say he’s got a “scary but effective” reputation as a hothead. When a conflict between them escalates to the point of physical violence, everyone in school — from the teachers to the students — gets invested.

Fist Fight is the feature directing debut of Richie Keen (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and features a top-notch comedic cast including Jillian Bell and Tracy Morgan. And unlike a lot of comedy trailers we’ve seen lately, this one looks like it might actually live up to the potential of the talent involved. Watch the Fist Fight trailer below. Read More »

The Night Before Clip

It’s safe to say that we all need some laughs, and if this past weekend’s fantastic episode of Saturday Night Live hosted by Elizabeth Banks wasn’t enough, this week brings the R-rated holiday comedy The Night Before to help out.

And if the recent red-band trailer didn’t convince you to see what looks like a truly hilarious flick for the holidays, the opening scene from the movie has been released, featuring touching narration by Tracy Morgan, not long after he hosted his own episode of SNL. However, it’s NSFW (due to language, not nudity), so beware of where you are watching it. Read More »

Tracy Morgan Saturday Night Live

Last night brought Tracy Morgan back to Studio 8H to host Saturday Night Live for a second time, after hosting the show back in 2009. But more importantly, this was also his first time actually performing (with the exception of a couple small appearances on awards broadcasts and talk shows) on television since his near-fatal accident about 16 months ago.

The good news is that not only was this a triumphant return for Tracy Morgan, but this was just a plain great episode of SNL. I’m not even cutting Morgan slack since this is a big comeback for him. This was just a solid episode all around, and Morgan’s presence only made it better. So let’s get down to the sketches.

Check out our full review of the Tracy Morgan Saturday Night Live episode below!
