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.

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.

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.

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 »
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.”

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 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.
