Natasha Leggero is continuing to get impressive guests for her web series, Tubbin' with Tash. In previous weeks, she's been joined by Sarah Silverman, Eric Andre, and Tig Notaro, but this time around, her guests are "Weird Al" Yankovic, Tom Lennon, and Fred Armisen in a short cameo as Jules the Gardener.
Tom Lennon and Ben Garant's latest comedy, Hell Baby, has been available on VOD since July, but it hits select theaters today, and the reviews are mixed-to-meh. The film, which stars Rob Corddry and Leslie Bibb as an expectant couple who move into a haunted house and end up with a demonic baby, earned a 35% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and a 40/100 on Metacritic.

A whole slew of lovely comedy people (Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, Michael Ian [...]
Lost Roles is a weekly column exploring "what might have been" in movie and TV comedy as we take a different actor, writer, or comedian each week and examine the parts they turned down, wanted but didn’t get, and the projects that fell apart altogether. This week, I interviewed Tom Lennon, star and writer of beloved comedy shows like Reno 911! and The State and an accomplished screenwriter and author (with Ben Garant) of the hilarious, no-bullshit screenwriting how-to book Writing Movies for Fun and Profit. Every actor has their fair share of close casting calls, and Tom Lennon is no exception. He was nice enough to chat [...]
