Morgan Freeman Added to a Movie Where 'The Hangover' Meets 'Space Cowboys'

Morg-Freems is the third actor, joining Robert De Niro and Michael Douglas, added to Last Vegas, a movie about old bros going to Las Vegas (More like Bucket (filled with coins) List). Here's the surprising part: the film might be good. The movie was written by Dan Fogelman who wrote last year's very solid Crazy, Stupid, Love and John Turtletaub is set to direct, who beyond doing the National Treasure movies also directed the "classic" buddy comedy Cool Runnings. They're still looking for a fourth old bro so if you know any old people, send them to Hollywood. I'd like to suggest Rip Torn because he's kind of like [...]

Trade Roundup: Kerri Kenney-Silver, Dan Fogelman

In addition to its three script orders earlier today, Comedy Central has started developing a half-hour scripted/improv mockumentary from Reno 911!'s Kerri Kenney-Silver and UCBer Jamie Denbo. The show is set at "a low-rent legal brothel in Winnemucca, Nevada called Dame Delilah’s Rabbit Hole Ranch," and Kenney-Silver will play Dame Delilah. Man I hope this becomes a real show.

Ben Affleck Lends His Mug to a Political Comedy From the Writer of Crazy, Stupid, Love

…and it'll be called Crazy, Stupid, Politics. Wait, that's already a Bill Maher show. But politics are definitely getting a comedy boost in this election year, with the Ferrell-Galifianakis movie Southern Rivals and now the Ben Affleck-starring Nathan Decker, written by Dan Fogelman and centering on "a politician who is caught in an affair and returns to his hometown to confront his past." Bet you five bucks I can predict the name of Affleck's character before even seeing the trailer. It's Nathan Decker. Because that's what the movie is called. I bet you.

Trade Roundup: Steve Carell, How I Met Your Mother, Dan Fogelman

Steve Carell is going to guest star on The Simpsons! Next fall, he'll play Fat Tony's accountant Dan Gillick, "who may go from crunching numbers to crunching skulls when he’s put in charge of the mob by Fat Tony while the big boss serves jury duty." Fantastic.

The Three Stooges' Will Sasso will return to How I Met Your Mother as Doug the bartender for the show's New Year's Eve episode. Hopefully his appearance will be a more slapsticky and Stoogelike reincarnation of the fistfight his character started in season four.

ABC's alien comedy pilot by Dan Fogelman has procured a Modern Family director, [...]
