Robert De Niro Gets Trapped in the Revolving Doors of 30 Rock

Robert De Niro had a little trouble exiting the building after visiting Jimmy Fallon last night, but I like to see this clip more on a symbolic level than a literal one. One could see this as a depiction of life's eternal repetition, but it's also a good illustration of what it feels like to go to work on a cold December Friday. Hang in there, Bob.

Kristen Wiig and Robert De Niro To Star in Comedian

Kristen Wiig and Robert De Niro will star in a drama called Comedian, to be directed by Sean Penn. In the film, De Niro's washed-up comedian character is forced to perform community service where "he meets a dazzling redhead (Wiig) who turns his life sideways." Ooh la la! Should be pretty interesting to see Wiig in a serious role opposite De Niro. And the script was written by Art Linson with Roastmaster General Jeffrey Ross, who definitely knows a thing or two about life as a comedian. Shooting doesn't start till this spring, which gives us plenty of time to rent The King of Comedy and prepare to [...]

DIDDY WILL NOT BE DENIED.

You know what would really be great? Jay Pharoah doing a sketch with De Niro as Diddy. Or just having Diddy stick to doing music. [...]

Trailer: Robert De Niro and Morgan Freeman in 'Last Vegas,' a Geriatric Version of 'The Hangover'

Here's the trailer for Last Vegas, a new comedy due out in November. Starring Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Kline as a bunch of old dudes who head to Las Vegas for a bachelor party, it's basically an elderly version of The Hangover. It's shocking that the trailer is completely devoid of Viagra jokes.

Katherine Heigl Gives The People What They Want: Weddings Forever!

Weddings! We wants them! Must have the weddings. Oh, sorry, just LOST MY DAMN GOLLUM MIND there for a minute thinking about Katherine Heigl's The Big Wedding, due out October 19, 2012. Robert De Niro and Diane Keaton co-star as "a long-divorced couple forced to pretend that they are still happily married at their son’s wedding." Because if those tricksy movie stars mess up our fantasy rom-com wedding, we will throw them into the Sammath Naur, we will.

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 [...]

Robert De Niro and Kristen Wiig's SNL Promos Totally Snub Diddy

Yep, these all look good. But wait a minute! Where the hell is Diddy?! Didn't they hear that he wants to be involved with Bobby somehow? You guys, Diddy is totally gonna start a Twitter campaign over this if he doesn't get his way. A Twitter campaign! Do what he says for chrissakes!
