Trade Roundup: Horrible Bosses 2, Paul Rudd, Kristen Wiig, Owen Wilson, Kurt Russell

- Horrible Bosses 2 is a thing that is happening. Luckily, it will probably have the original's writers and directors, and the Bateman-Sudeikis-Day trio is expected to star again. Maybe they'll try to kill each other's kids in this one.

- Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig, and Christopher Walken may star in Freezing People Is Easy, written by Stranger Than Fiction's Zach Helm, directed by Errol Morris and produced by (among others) Ira Glass. Yeah, that's a whole lot of awesome names. The film is the true story of the "television repairman who tried to pioneer the field of cryogenics by freezing humans." Um, if it's [...]

SNL Recap: Charlie Day and the Need for Impersonation

I imagine it must be frustrating for an SNL writer to go on break for a few weeks, just to have huge news stories arise and fade into irrelevance during the hiatus. In the three weeks since SNL has aired a new episode, we’ve seen the death of Muammar Gaddafi, the Greek debt controversy, the sexual harassment claims made about Herman Cain, the Kim Kardashian divorce, and the ongoing Occupy Wall Street protests.

While SNL is certainly not the only vehicle for American satire (nor is it the most lethal these days), for better or worse it’s the most traditional one. While other TV comedies have embraced more sophisticated [...]

Charlie Day Tells College Graduates About the Importance of Risk, Failure, and Not Giving a Shit

Here's a recent commencement speech It's Always Sunny's Charlie Day gave to his alma mater Merrimack College that's two parts hilarious and one part sincerely enlightening. Day tells the story of turning down a comfy financial services job offer after college to instead move to New York to pursue an acting career, why "having a plan B can muddy up your plan A," and why failing is so important to success: "Do what's uncomfortable and scary and pays off in the long run."

Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day Are Starring in a Thriller Together

SNL's Jason Sudeikis and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Charlie Day are branching out into a new genre and starring in their first thriller together. THR reports that Sudeikis and Day have signed on for the lead roles in One Night on the Hudson, which follows a jaded veteran cop and his straight-laced rookie partner as they transport a witness from New Jersey to Manhattan while dealing with criminals, corrupt cops, and the Hudson River.

The Movies of 2011: A Raunchy, R-Rated Year for Comedy

Unlike 2010, a year that didn’t give us a whole lot of great comedies, 2011 was a step in the right direction. Since it takes a movie two years to make it from script to theaters, the comedies of 2011 were the movies greenlit in the wake of The Hangover’s unbridled success in 2009. While The Hangover’s monstrous box office gross is directly responsible for the release of its sequel this year, it also caused an influx in raunchy, R-rated comedies, making it seem like these were the only types of comedies that came out in 2011. This recent wave of R-rated comedy began when Wedding Crashers and [...]
