Meagan Good Joins Craig Robinson's NBC Comedy 'Mr. Robinson'

It's been over a year since NBC ordered Craig Robinson's middle school music teacher pilot Mr. Robinson to series, and the latest update on the unscheduled show comes in the form of a casting change. THR reports that Meagan Good (Deception, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues) has been cast in the series in a role originally attached to A to Z's Lenora Crichlow.

NBC Orders Craig Robinson's Pilot to Series

Today, NBC announced that they've ordered Craig Robinson's sitcom pilot, Mr. Robinson, to series. The network started developing the show nearly a year ago and waited an unusually long time before coming to a decision. Mr. Robinson stars the comedian as a musician who takes a job as a music teacher at a middle school, and the pilot featured Steve Agee (The Sarah Silverman Program), Kumail Nanjiani (Franklin & Bash), Steve Little (Eastbound & Down), Amanda Lund (Ghost Ghirls), and Jean Smart (Designing Women) in supporting roles.

NBC has ordered six episodes of Mr. Robinson. There's no word on when it will debut. The Office showrunner Greg Daniels served [...]

Craig Robinson Will Serenade You

Here's a new video Craig Robinson made for Funny or Die, in which he plays the piano and sings a seductive song, which is how I'm assuming he'll be spending all of his time these days now that The Office is ending.

Comedians Steve Agee (The Sarah Silverman Program), Kumail Nanjiani (Franklin & Bash), and Steve Little (Eastbound & Down) are all playing supporting roles in Craig Robinson's untitled NBC pilot, produced by Greg Daniels and written by Office writer Owen Ellickson.

Craig Robinson's NBC Series Isn't Dead After All, May Get Picked Up for Mid-Season

While it was presumed dead after NBC didn't pick up its pilot to series before unveiling their fall schedule, it looks like Craig Robinson's untitled sitcom may become a reality after all. It was reported earlier that the show was actually still alive, and that is indeed the case: NBC has just extended the cast options and ordered three more scripts, making it likely to be picked up for a potential mid-season spot. The show centers on "a talented musician (Robinson) who adjusts to his new life as a middle school music teacher, where he maneuvers precocious kids, teacher politics, and the temptations of single moms." It [...]

Yesterday, Seth Rogen and company released a fake trailer for Pineapple Express 2 as an April Fool's Day gag, which ended up being a piece of actual promotion for their new apocalypse comedy This Is the End. Now, they've released an actual new trailer for This Is the End, a movie that Rogen co-wrote/co-directed that stars him, Jonah Hill, James Franco, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson as themselves. Beware, the trailer's jam-packed with spoilers, revealing some major character deaths and other stuff too.

Craig Robinson's NBC Pilot Is Still Alive and a Contender for a Midseason Spot

Last month, the networks decided which pilots they were ordering to series for the fall. One promising pilot that was missing from the roster of new shows was Mr. Robinson, a teacher sitcom starring Craig Robinson and executive produced by The Office showrunner Greg Daniels. While Mr. Robinson won't be on the fall schedule, Deadline reports today that the pilot is still breathing and "remains a possibility" for a midseason slot. Perhaps the network is waiting to see how Craig Robinson's big summer movie This Is The End does at the box office next week before making a decision. Last season, NBC brass announced plans to push the [...]

'Hot Tub Time Machine 2' to Start Filming in June, Maybe with John Cusack

In January, news came out that a Hot Tub Time Machine sequel was in the works, but now, star Craig Robinson has revealed to Collider that the sequel is official and filming is scheduled to begin in June. The previous report on Hot Tub Time Machine 2 was that Robinson, Rob Corddry, and Clark Duke would be the focus of the new movie with John Cusack not reprising his role, but when Robinson was asked this weekend if Cusack is returning, he responded, "Negotiations are still going, and everybody's involved." The original movie's director Steve Pink is expected to return and to co-write the script with [...]
