Zach Galifianakis is in final negotiations to star in an new comedy with Owen Wilson, The Wrap reports. Formerly titled Loomis Fargo, the currently untitled movie is based on the true story of the Loomis Fargo Bank Robbery, a $17.3 million heist by a group of armored car guards in North Carolina in 1997. Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite) is directing the film, and Lorne Michaels is producing. Jim Carrey was previously attached to play the role Zach Galifianakis is taking over. Galifianakis and Wilson recently starred together in Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner's upcoming indie comedy-drama You Are Here.
Over the past month, the creators of two rejected TV comedies released the pilots for their shows online with approval from the networks/studios who made them. First, CBS released its Rupert Grint superhero comedy Super Clydeafter Greg Garcia asked them to, followed by YouTube network JASH releasing Sarah Silverman's NBC pilot Susan 313. Every year, TV networks pump millions of dollars into creating a bunch of pilots, with only a tiny fraction of these shows actually making it to air, but these are two rare instances of the creators of these passed-over pilots being able to debut the shows they worked hard on for the masses.

Last night, it was announced that Comedy Central has ordered a pilot of the long-running and much-beloved Chris Gethard Show. The pilot will be produced by Funny or Die, with executive producers Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, Owen Burke, and Adam McKay alongside Gethard. Gethard made the announcement on the latest episode of his show, a special edition which was devoted to big announcements. Wearing a homemade t-shirt with the slogan "Find a Way," Gethard welcomed a parade of recurring cast members and characters, each of whom had their own major announcement to make, ultimately culminating in Gethard's big news for TCGS.
The Chris Gethard Show began as a stage show in November [...]

Zach Galifianakis and Craig Ferguson met each other for the first time last night when Galifianakis was a guest on The Late Late Show, and the result was a pretty nutty interview, which you can watch in its entirety above.
Zach Galifianakis was a guest on The Today Show this morning, and prior to his interview, he wandered on screen a couple times to interrupt the show. The first time, he walks past Natalie Morales texting on his phone in the background while she's reading the news. In the second, he interrupts a creepy segment where Martha Stewart talks to two dudes she met on an online dating site, bringing her flowers and saying he's her third suitor. Stewart tries to playfully insult him but can't seem to remember the names of any of his movies for the little joke she makes.

It snuck up on us, didn't it? The end of SNL Season 38 brought along with it key staff changes, among them the upcoming departure of head writer Seth Meyers and the immediate departures of cast members Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, and (unofficially) Jason Sudeikis. Few people have shaped SNL over the past 8 years more than these men — Meyers with his leadership in the writers room and charm as Weekend Update host, and Hader, Armisen and Sudeikis as the cast's workhorses and loadbearing performers. Indeed, many pegged Season 38 as a "transitional year" in the wake of Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg leaving the show a year ago, [...]
