Justin Bieber Joins the Cast of 'Zoolander 2' Whether You Like It or Not

Over the past few weeks, Ben Stiller has been revealing his Zoolander 2 cast on Instagram, and so far it looks pretty stellar: Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell, Christine Taylor, Penelope Cruz, Kristen Wiig, Cyrus Arnold (as Derek Jr.), Billy Zane, Fred Armisen, and Kyle Mooney. Today, however, Stiller teased another cast member on Instagram that might not be received as well as the names above: Justin Bieber. No details about Bieber's character have been revealed, but hopefully his appearance doesn't tarnish the beloved Zoolander brand too much. Fun fact: When Zoolander was released in theaters in 2001, Bieber was just some non-famous [...]

Check Out Two Sneak Peeks of Comedy Central's 'Roast of Justin Bieber'

The Roast of Justin Bieber is a week away, and today Comedy Central released two sneak peeks featuring expert roaster Jeffrey Ross and roastmaster Kevin Hart (below). For more spoilers from the Bieber roast, check out Variety's behind-the-scenes look with roasters Hannibal Buress, Natasha Leggero, Shaquille O'Neal, Pete Davidson, and more.

Justin Bieber Gets Egged in His First 'Comedy Central Roast' Promo

The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber airs on Monday, March 30th, and Comedy Central just released the first promo featuring Bieber (shirtless, of course) showing off how well he can take an egging just as well as he can dish it out. As for whether Bieber can take the cruel emotional abuse that insult comics do best, only time will tell.

'SNL' Review: A New Year with Kevin Hart

A month ago, Chris Rock wrote an essay for the Hollywood Reporter about race in Hollywood, specifically mentioning a sketch he appeared in with Sasheer Zamata on SNL earlier this season as an example of normalization of black actors being able to do comedy without having to always represent the black community:

Twenty years ago when I was on Saturday Night Live, anything with black people on the show had to deal with race, and that sketch we did didn't have anything to do with race. That was the beauty: The sketch is funny because it's funny, and that's the progress. And there are black guys [...]

'SNL' Review: Jonah Hill's Award-Worthy Performance

Anytime I begin to think Jonah Hill might be overrated, I only need watch him host SNL. Yes, it's still pretty weird to think that the guy from Superbad has spent the last few years scoring Oscar nominations and hanging out with Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Martin Scorcese. And it's easy to say the industry might be a little too infatuated with a comedy star who can surprise with a nuanced performance in a movie academy voters actually care about.

But then Jonah Hill comes back to host SNL, and suddenly it makes sense. Not only is the guy the real deal — he seems like a delight [...]

Watch Some Clips from Last Night's 'Roast of Justin Bieber'

Comedy Central's Roast of Justin Bieber aired last night, and well…who knew a Justin Bieber roast might actually be funny? From brutal jokes by SNL's Pete Davidson ("I lost my dad on 9/11 and I always regretted growing up without a dad. Until I met your dad, Justin. Now I'm glad mine's dead") to undying honesty from Hannibal Buress ("I hate your music more than Bill Cosby hates my comedy") to special appearances by Ron Burgundy and even Dave Chappelle, the night was full of plenty of surprises at Bieber's expense. Check out more clips from the roast below:

Get ready for the biggest train wreck on Comedy Central next month. The network announced today that the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber is set to air on Monday, March 30th. The lineup of roasters has not yet been revealed, but Kevin Hart will serve as roast master.

"I don't normally do roasts but I had to step out for my guy Biebs…It’s his big 21," Hart said in an announcement. "It's about to be operation roast everyone's ass."

Girl and Guy Code Team Up to Give You Some Badass Sleep and Water Facts

Here's a new video from Funny or Die featuring tons of people including Andrew Law, Mike Mitchell, Echo Kellum, and some kid named Justin Bieber posing as Girl/Guy Code combo show "Human Code" here to tell you all about sleep and water — two totally hip things that they could never live without.

'SNL' Review: No Escape from Miley Cyrus

After Justin Bieber hosted SNL last season, I concluded that SNL will never quite be the alternative comedy show we'd like it to be. There's no denying the show would be much funnier if producers only booked the heroes of comedy nerds to host the show, as it did last season with Louis CK and last week with Tina Fey. I've made the case several times that the show would be far better if only former cast members hosted — indeed, SNL has enough star alumni to fill a few seasons' worth of episodes.

But SNL isn't that show. The ongoing inclusion of performances by a musical guest [...]

The Next 'Comedy Central Roast' Will Take on Justin Bieber

Comedy Central just revealed its next Comedy Central Roast victim, and they couldn't have made an easier choice. Network president Kent Alterman confirmed today that Justin Bieber will be the next celebrity to get his own roast special, though an air date for the ceremony has not yet been announced: "Justin has been asking us for a few years to roast him, and we just kept telling him to go create more source material first. We're thrilled he listened." Hopefully we can count on at least one appearance by Kate McKinnon.

'SNL' Review: Louis C.K. Is Still Hilarious, In Case Anyone Was Wondering

When Louis C.K. last hosted SNL in November 2012, there was magic in the air. A week after Superstorm Sandy walloped New York, with huge parts of the city still without power, it just felt appropriate to see a comedian so emblematic of the New York spirit, with its gritty nature and heartfelt sincerity, serve as the face of the show that week. And to see him kill it as he did, with a hilarious parody of his FX show Louie starring Abraham Lincoln, was a magical moment for comedy nerds, like watching Conan O'Brien hosting the Emmys in 2006 or witnessing Joss Whedon's The Avengers win over both [...]
