Eddie Murphy Hosting Saturday Night Live

Eddie Murphy is slated to make his triumphant return to stand-up comedy at Netflix sometime in the future, but before that, we’ll see him try his hand at stand-up again for a big charity comedy festival being put together to benefit Feeding America food banks during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Feeding America Comedy Festival is being put together by comedian-turned-media-magnate Byron Allen and his Entertainment Studios banner along with the folks at Funny or Die. The three-hour event will be taking donations while audiences enjoy stand-up sets from some of the biggest names in comedy. Along with Eddie Murphy, the show will include Chris Rock, Kevin Hart, Billy Crystal, Tiffany Haddish, Kenan Thompson, Howie Mandel, Marc Maron, and many more. Read More »

The Saw series is back, with a fresh start. Chris Rock stars in (and came up with the story for) Spiral: From the Book of Saw, a new entry in the franchise with a considerably clunky title. The first Spiral trailer is now here, and it takes its time before revealing it’s a Saw film. For the first few moments, you might think this is a new cop thriller starring Chris Rock. And then…things spiral out of control (see what I did there?).

fargo season 4 trailer

Eyebrows were raised when Chris Rock, one of America’s most renowned comedians who rarely dips his toes into drama, was cast in Fargo. Noah Hawley’s anthological send-up of the Coen brothers’ classic had some winking humor to it, but was first and foremost a meaty drama into which character actors could sink their teeth. But the Rock-led Fargo season 4 looks to be the zaniest installment of the FX series yet. Watch the Fargo season 4 trailer below.

Eddie Murphy Hosted Saturday Night Live

For the first time in 35 years, Eddie Murphy returned to host Saturday Night Live. Since this was also the Christmas episode, the pressure was on for this to truly be a television event. Thankfully, Eddie Murphy didn’t disappoint, and he brought a bunch of his friends with him, not to mention the cavalcade of guest stars that’s been popping up for the Democratic debate spoofing. The result was not only the best episode of the season, but one of the best episodes in recent memory.

Let’s run through the best and worst sketches of the Eddie Murphy hosted Saturday Night Live. Read More »

saw reboot release date

The Saw movies used to be a tradition every Halloween season. A new sequel would roll around every October, to the point where they adopted the somewhat nonsensical tagline “If it’s Halloween, it must be Saw!” The new Saw reboot, from the twisted mind of Chris Rock, was originally set for an October release date as well – October 23, 2020. But now the latest deathtrap-laden entry has been bumped up a few months, to May 2020. There’s never a wrong time for horror as far as I’m concerned, but dropping Saw in the summertime seems…odd.

saw reboot cast

Chris Rock‘s Saw reboot just got a heck of a lot cooler. Samuel L. Jackson has officially joined the cast of the new film, taking on the role of Rock’s father. The new Saw comes courtesy of an original idea by Rock, and while plot details are slim, there’s a good bet killer booby traps will be involved in some capacity. And if we get really lucky, Samuel L. Jackson will say the f-word.  Read More »

saw reboot chris rock

The Saw movies always ended with a big twist, but here’s a real-life twist I don’t think anyone saw coming. Chris Rock – yes, that Chris Rock – is set to star in and produce a new Saw reboot, with franchise filmmaker Darren Lynn Bousman returning to direct. Rock came up with the idea for the film himself, and despite his presence, this isn’t going to be a comedy. Instead, the actor has cooked up something “really intense and twisted.”

Adam Sandler Hosted Saturday Night Live

After 24 years, Adam Sandler returned to Saturday Night Live to host the late night sketch series for the first time ever. The expectations were high, and while the Sandman was back to his usual self, the overall show took some time to gain steam. Thankfully, it ended with a bang and even some tears. Plus, there were plenty of fun cameos by familiar faces of the past, as well as the perfect cameo from musical guest Shawn Mendes.

So let’s break down the best and worst sketches from the Adam Sandler hosted Saturday Night Live. Read More »

fargo season 4

Fargo is not the type of show where you can take any season for granted. Even if there is a new season – which is not a guarantee because FX and creator Noah Hawley approach each one as a miniseries – each season has a new story and new cast. Today, FX announced a fourth season of the series and its star.

Fargo season 4 will star Chris Rock and will be set in Kansas City, Missouri in the 1950s.

the week of trailer

Ever since Adam Sandler and Chris Rock starred together on Saturday Night Live in the ’90s, Rock has been a constant fixture in Sandler’s progressively crass repertoire — from The Longest Yard, to Grown-Ups and Grown-Ups 2.

But as the two reteam in The Week Of for Sandler’s last movie in his original four-film Netflix deal, they seem to pull off a miracle: a genuinely charming movie.
