The Wayne's World gang is getting back together. But don't get too excited, it's just to talk about the movie, not to make another one. THRreports that Wayne's World producer Lorne Michaels will host a reunion panel at LA's Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences following a screening of the film on April 23rd. Joining him will be stars Mike Myers and Dana Carvey and director Penelope Spheeris.

Spheeris tells THR, "We're all getting too old to be pissed. Wayne's [...]
"The truth is Kenan [Thompson] does not want to be seen with me in any form of media, or even have my name mentioned around him… There is no bad blood on my side, I'm not declining a reunion, I know the fans love the show and would love to see some type of appearance with us. I just don't see that ever happening because of how he really feels."
-Kel Mitchell to TMZ about Kenan Thompson's disinterest in a Kenan & Kel reunion.
video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player Try and watch this video reunion of the cast of The Princess Bride reunion without smiling. I dare you. You might make it through the part where Robin Wright fondly recalls Andre the Giant's putting his gigantic hand on her head to warm her up between takes. But you will absolutely not get through the ending where Billy Crystal and Carol Kane recreate their famous storming-the-castle sendoff. Oh, also, how different would this movie have been if Vizzini had been played by Danny DeVito?! It's not even possible to conceive of it. You might say it's…well, you know.
Following the news that the five living members of Monty Python are reuniting for a show in London next summer, all five participated in a Reddit Ask Me Anything this morning, answering questions about their new show, their old material, and each other. Here are a few of the best quotes from Eric Idle, Michael Palin, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, and Terry Jones.
Next year marks the 30th anniversary of This Is Spinal Tap's release, and in a new interview, Christopher Guest, teased the possibility of some sort of a reunion in 2014. When asked by The Guardian if there are plans for a Spinal Tap reunion soon, Guest replied, "We get asked to do shows on a regular basis. But what I will say is that we're in the midst of talking about something for next year…" Guest also reflected on all of the things the fake band has accomplished over the last three decades, saying, "Since the film 30 years ago we've gone on tour, playing Wembley, the Albert [...]
TV Land announced last month that they're reuniting the entire female cast of Mary Tyler Moore for an upcoming episode of Hot in Cleveland, and the gang got back together yesterday for a press conference about the big TV event. MTM stars Betty White and Georgia Engel are already regulars on Cleveland, and Valerie Harper, Cloris Leachman, and Mary Tyler Moore will be guest starring on the episode as members of White and Engel's old bowling league. This is the first time the five cast members have acted together since Mary Tyler Moore ended its run in 1977, which was a very long time ago.
Producers Judd Apatow and Paul Feig sat down with the folks at Entertainment Weekly for a delightful chat about their much-adored series Freaks and Geeks. When asked about the possibility of a Freaks and Geeks reunion a la its unfairly-cancelled TV brethren Arrested Development, Apatow and Feig both seemed pretty opposed to the idea in fear that it would harm the legacy of the show, which is a totally noble and valid standpoint. You hear that Internet nerds? Don’t pressure these guys into compromising their artistic integrity by demanding a Freaks and Geeks movie with your petitions, flash mobs, and general well-intentioned-but-misguided enthusiasm.
