Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry, and Clark Duke Travel to the Future in the 'Hot Tub Time Machine 2' Trailer

It's been four years since Hot Tub Time Machine hit theaters, and the first red band trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2 made its debut at Comic-Con yesterday with Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry, and Clark Duke traveling to the future so they can fix a few problems in the present. Like the first Hot Tub, Hot Tub 2 is packed with comedy people — this trailer alone features Chevy Chase, Adam Scott, Jason Jones, and Kumail Nanjiani getting punched in the face.

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 [...]

Watch the Trailer for 'Peeples,' Craig Robinson's First Leading Role

Sure, The Office's Craig Robinson was one of four lead characters in Hot Tub Time Machine a few years ago, but the first movie he's starring in solo, Peeples, is coming out this May and here's the brand new trailer. It's technically called Tyler Perry Presents Peeples, but just know that Tyler Perry only produced it and neither wrote nor directed it – which is why no one in the entire preview is in drag.

Craig Robinson and Greg Daniels Escaping 'The Office' Together for a New Sitcom

Actor Craig Robinson and showrunner Greg Daniels are the latest personnel from The Office to book a new TV show for next season as a follow-up gig to when their long-running NBC sitcom ends its runs in May. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has given a script order to an untitled workplace comedy that Daniels will produce as a starring vehicle for Robinson, with newbie Office writer/producer Owen Ellickson penning the script. In the prospective show, Craig Robinson would star as a musician adjusting to his new life as a junior high music teacher. So, it sounds like Eastbound & Down (which Robinson was appeared on multiple times), only [...]

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.

Steve Agee, Kumail Nanjiani, and Steve Little Join Craig Robinson's NBC Pilot

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. Nanjiani tweeted this photo of the full cast yesterday, with the new actors joining previously-announced cast members Amanda Lund (bottom left), Amandla Stenberg (bottom, middle), and Larenz Tate (back row to the right of Robinson). The pilot stars Robinson as a musician adjusting to his new life as a music teacher at an inner city middle school. This was already a show worth looking forward to for [...]

NBC Orders a Pilot from 'The Office's Craig Robinson and Greg Daniels

NBC just commissioned a pilot episode of a potential series starring Craig Robinson and produced by The Office showrunner Greg Daniels, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The untitled show, which NBC began developing in October, stars Robinson as a musician adjusting to his new life as a middle school music teacher, as he deals with kids, other teachers, and single moms. Owen Ellickson, a new writer for The Office who previously worked on King of Queens and The Goode Family, wrote the script.

This is the second pilot producer Greg Daniels has sold this season after NBC bought a show about a bunch of 20something guys [...]

Nick Offerman v. Craig Robinson in 'Chicago Idol'

If American Idol decided to become a regional competition instead of a national one, this is EXACTLY what the Chicago version would be like: just grown men in athletic hats, drinking beers, and singing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" between innings. Yeah, Chicago Idol sounds like a definite improvement. Call up Brian Dunkleman and ask him if he is willing to move to the midwest.

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 [...]

Here's the New Trailer for Seth Rogen and James Franco's 'This Is the End'

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.

Here's the brand new trailer for Rapturepalooza, a comedy starring Craig Robinson, Anna Kendrick, John Francis Daley, and Rob Corddry that hits theaters later this year. This is just one of two apocalypse movies Craig Robinson is in this year. It's estimated that 50% of comedies released in 2013 will be apocalyptic comedies.
