'The Office' Q&A With Ed Helms And Paul Lieberstein

October 7th, 2011 1:44pm EDT
ed helms
“Ed Helms is just an unbridled genius and it was important to us to capitalize on that.” This is the answer given when the question is raised as to why the producers of NBC’s “The Office” decided to promote from within to fill the Branch Manager position when Steve Carrell left the show at the end of last season. The answer was given by Ed Helms himself, joking of course, but his fake bravado isn’t far off.

Helms, who plays Andy Bernard on NBC’s hit show, has launched to superstardom in the past few years thanks to his addition to “The Office.” So why has Helms become so popular as of late...

Seth Rogen Calls Barbra Streisand Mom, Dumps Yvonne Strahovsky In 'My Mother's Curse'

September 28th, 2011 3:00pm EDT
Seth Rogen in My Mothers Curse
Seth Rogen has had many comedy costars: Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill, James Franco. Next he has a true diva. Barbra Streisand plays his mother in My Mother’s Curse. Not many people get to call Babs mom.

“I didn’t call her that that often but it was great,” Rogen said while promoting this week’s new release 50/50 at the Toronto International Film Festival. “We actually worked very well together I think. It was a lot like Joe [Gordon-Levitt] in that she really was into being a comedy team. She really embraced the idea that it was a buddy comedy with a mother and son.”

The duo goes on...

Early 2011 Emmy Predictions: Here's Who Will Win

August 20th, 2011 6:00pm EDT
Mad Men
It may be a little early to predict the Emmy winners, but unlike the Oscars, not much changes in the Emmy Awards season once the nominations are out.

The Emmys can be very tough to predict, but we'll take our best shot. Here's who we think will go home with the gold on Sept. 18th. Do you agree?

Outstanding Drama Series
'Boardwalk Empire'
'Dexter'
'Friday Night Lights'
'Game of Thrones'
'The Good Wife'
'Mad Men'

After yet another outstanding season, it looks like 'Mad Men' may make it four in a row. Its only real competition is 'Boardwalk Empire,' which took the Golden Globe, and...

'Cowboys & Aliens' & 'Smurfs' Tie At Weekend Box Office

August 1st, 2011 8:30am EDT
The Smurfs
"Cowboys & Aliens" and family fun movie "The Smurfs" have tied for the box office top spot - both films opened at the weekend with $36.2 million.

"Captain America: The First Avenger" didn't have enough power to hold onto last week's number one - it fell to third place with $24.9 million.

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" raked in $21.9 million to land fourth place, and Ryan Gosling and Steve Carell's new romantic comedy "Crazy, Stupid, Love," rounded out the top five after premiering with $19.3 million.

Review: Two Jews' Split Over 'Crazy Stupid Love' (Video)

Crazy Stupid Love
Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin Schwartz: 'Crazy Stupid Love' written by Dan Fogelman (Cars) opens with a shot of two sets of feet underneath a table in a restaurant. The feet belong to Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) and his wife Emily (Julianne Moore) Their feet are very far apart from one another...which tells us...something is not quite right with this couple.

As Cal studies the menu, he says to his wife...'Let's shout out on three what we want' But before he gets to three, Emily blurts out...'I want a divorce'. Not exactly what Cal was expecting.

Nicolas Cage
Actor Nicolas Cage has signed on to star in an independent musical with the Hollywood screenwriter/director who helped to land him an Oscar nomination in 2002.

The Ghost Rider star earned Academy Award recognition for his turn in Charlie Kaufman's Adaptation and now the pair is set to reunite for forthcoming project, Frank or Francis.

Comedians Steve Carell and Jack Black are also attached to the movie.

Plot details have yet to be released, but the story is said to revolve around an author called Frank, who clashes with an online blogger named Francis, reports trade paper Daily Variety.

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Cowboys & Aliens,' 'Crazy, Stupid, Love,' & More

July 25th, 2011 11:00am EDT
Cowboys & Aliens
“Captain America: The First Avenger” surprised me last week, by outdoing other summer superhero films like “Thor” and “Green Lantern.” Director Joe Johnston delivers a good old fashioned fun time injecting action, humor, and just the right amount of camp into the film. For more of my thoughts, check out my review.

This week you’ll have the chance to catch the sci-fi action epic “Cowboys & Aliens,” the romantic dramedy “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” the silly comedy “The Smurfs,” the British alien invasion flick “Attack the Block,” the independent drama “The Future,” the biopic “The Devil’s...

Steve Carell Loved Working With 'Goofy' & 'Child Like' Ryan Gosling

July 20th, 2011 8:43am EDT
Steve Carell
Steve Carell has found an unlikely new double act comedy partner in super-serious movie star Ryan Gosling.

The pair make an unlikely couple in new film "Crazy Stupid Love," but Carell insists "The Notebook" star was a hoot to work with - and he hopes they team up regularly.

He tells WENN, "Ryan is known for his dramatic work and being a very intense actor but he's so goofy and so silly and loved to improvise. He was sort of child-like on the set and so happy to be just playing and having fun and having the freedom to be goofy and silly.

"I haven't seen outtakes but there'll be plenty of ...

Jim Carrey & Adam Sandler Targeted In Animal Rights Letter Campaign

July 18th, 2011 7:33pm EDT
Jim Carrey
Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler are among the funnymen who have been targeted by leading animal rights group PETA as part of a campaign to keep animals out of the movies.

Activists were appalled to see real creatures in films like Mr. Popper's Penguins and Zookeeper alongside computerized doubles and now they're appealing to the stars in person, asking them to boycott films that feature performing animals.

Letters have been sent to Carrey and Sandler as well as Steve Carell, Will Ferrell, and Ben Stiller - all of whom have starred in and/or produced films that featured wild animals.

'Harry Potter,' 'Super 8' & This Summer's Five Other Must-See Movies

June 9th, 2011 11:00am EDT
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2
The perfect recipe for a summer must-see film boils down to this: it either has to be full of adrenaline pumping action that usually involves some supernatural powers, or it has to be outrageously funny and maybe even a little cringe-worthy, or it’s a romantic comedy, which, hey, is always in season.

This summer has already been kicked off to a start with a string of blockbuster hits. You’ve got your superhero action films, “Thor,” “X-Men,” and “Pirates of the Caribbean,” you’ve got a heaping dose of the funnies, with the record-breaking “The Hangover Part II” and its female equivalent, ...

Top Ten TV Goodbyes: Who Makes The List?

May 20th, 2011 5:00pm EDT
The Office Goodbye Michael
With Steve Carell leaving ‘The Office’ last month, it’s time to reflect on big goodbye episodes. I thought ‘The Office’ pulled off his departure well, although I’m not sure how I feel about the future of the show.

Here’s my top ten list of other shows that have successfully sent a character off in style. The rules: it is a true “goodbye” episode with a major character or star departing. If it happens off-screen, it doesn’t count. So that’s why I’m not including some obvious departures, such as Rhoda Morgenstern, Frank Burns, Coach Pantusso, etc.

Here they are. Do you agree?

Trailer Preview: Three New Movies To Be Excited About

May 9th, 2011 3:42pm EDT
Bridesmaids
I confess that I am one of those people who have to see the previews when I go to the movies. Trailers, persuasively edited, teasers for upcoming films, are designed to seduce and entice with flashes of movies’ brilliance set to powerful scores. They are movies at their absolute best. While I am a sucker for them, I’m blessed with the gift of knowing if I’m going to love or hate a movie solely on those two-minute gems. Being a trailer whisperer won’t bring in the big bucks, but it helps me avoid paying for bad movies that will be on DVD in a couple months. Thanks to my skills, I didn’t...

'The Office' Recap: 'The Inner Circle'

May 7th, 2011 7:56am EDT
The Office
‘The Inner Circle’ was the first episode without Michael. I don’t know about you, but I felt that loss. More on that later.

The episode centers around Deangelo’s Man's Club (or so it could be called) in which he acts like a dopey, chauvinistic weirdo and all the other guys suck up. People like Kevin are thrilled to be in it, while Dwight insults Deangelo’s every move.

Jim gets himself in an awkward spot when he points out Deangelo appears sexist to some people in the office. As if to prove a point, Deangelo hires a young, female administrative assistant. (Is it just me, or does she l...

'The Office' Recap: 'Michael's Last Dundies' And 'Goodbye, Michael'

May 2nd, 2011 8:22am EDT
Steve Carell as Michael Scott
Sorry for my absence last week – vacation down south beckoned me. Here, then, is a double recap.

In ‘Michael’s Last Dundies,’ we get a warm-up to his goodbye. It starts with Michael and Deangelo making early morning house calls to present lucky Dundie nominees with their certificates. Reactions range from a drunken offer of Vienna sausages (Meredith) to outrage (Stanley: “Have you lost your mind? Get off my property before I call the police!”)

Michael finds it fitting to have Deangelo as his co-host, but Deangelo is pretty nervous about the whole thing. In fact, the guy is shaping up...

Tina Fey Seduces Arnold Schwarzenegger, 'True Lies' Style

April 19th, 2011 11:00am EDT
Tina Fey
One of the best moments in Date Night is when Tina Fey and Steve Carell have to pole dance for a coked-up politician, in a friendly nod to the True Lies scene involving Jamie Lee Curtis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Well, thanks to the internet, we now have a video of Tina Fey attempting to seduce the Governator.

Watch the Video Below:

Tina Fey has never played a character with smooth dance moves, so there isn't a lot to work with here. However, it is still amusing to watch Arnold's reactions to several of her Liz Lemon moves from 30 Rock.

Michael Scott may have finally met his match – of a sort. Meet Deangelo Vickers (Will Ferrell), his apparent replacement. At a bar where they are to meet, the two slowly realize – like awkward 13-year-olds at a school dance – that they have been chatting without realizing their connection. (Amongst their strange conversation… Michael: "I don’t want to end up like Sonny Bobo.” Deangelo: "That makes some sense right there. Everyone I know who skis is dead.” That pretty much sums up the gravity of their conversation.

'Crazy, Stupid, Love' Looks Like The RomCom We've Been Waiting For (Trailer)

April 11th, 2011 2:00pm EDT
Crazy Stupid Love
After being spoon fed romantic comedy after romantic comedy with the same predictable plot line, it’s easy to lose interest – and quickly. But among the sea of generic films floating about in Hollywood, there’s bound to be one that renews our interest in the increasingly decadent genre.

Insert some crazy stupid love. No, really, “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” starring Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, and Steve Carell just to name a few, none of which are virgins to romance nor comedy.

British comedienne Catherine Tate has been tipped to take over from Steve Carell when he departs The Office later this month.

The former "Doctor Who" star will appear on the current season finale of the sitcom and insiders suggest she'll be the replacement for Carell's Michael Scott.

The funnyman is departing the show after six years.

In the final episode of this season, Tate will reportedly compete for Scott's vacant job alongside Ray Romano, Will Arnett, James Spader and Will Ferrell, according to AOL.com.

As The Office prepares to say goodbye to Steve Carell's Michael Scott and Charlie Sheen appears to have been relieved of his duties on Two and a Half Men, the question on most viewers' minds is simple: Will the shows be as good without them?

There's basically only two ways it can go.

For every Cheers or NYPD Blue, there is a Beverly Hills, 90210 or Designing Women.

'The Office' Recap: 'Garage Sale'

Even though the episode centers around a garage sale, this is probably the most plot significant – and emotionally satisfying – episode of ‘The Office’ in years. A lot happens amidst the selling of cheap things in the warehouse. That’s what she said.

Let’s start with the garage sale stuff: obviously, it’s not the series’ most exciting venture, but it has amusing points: Kevin, Andy and Darryl playing the Dallas board game; Angela selling cat figurines; Ryan appropriating pictures of Office staffers for his mother’s homemade canned goods; Michael’s refusal to sell much of anything; Oscar’...

NBC's Steve Carell exit from The Office promises to be a big one — that's what she said — and it now has an airdate.

The episode, which wrapped production last week, is expected to air on Thursday, April 28. That's the first night of May sweeps, when the networks load up on events and special episodes. And the departure of Carell certainly qualifies.

'The Office' Recap: 'Todd Packer'

Todd Packer is possibly one of the most inappropriate characters on TV, and he’s played to perfection by David Koechner. No one in the office – except maybe a young Michael Scott – could get away with dry humping employees or making fat jokes.

When Packer decides to stop traveling and settle down, Michael convinces Holly that Packer would be a perfect addition to the team. She takes Michael at his word, not realizing just how crude the guy is. (She soon realizes it when he refers to his own daughter as a bitch.)

Everyone else in the office, meanwhile, is horrified at Packer’s return. ...

'The Office' Recap: 'Threat Level Midnight'

The Office
We know Michael loves to imagine himself as a movie star. But are we prepared to see a movie written by, directed by and starring him?

The episode, ‘Threat Level Midnight’ (great title, Michael) is all about the office folk watching Michael’s movie. Of course the movie is pathetically bad; I just wish it was a little more… hilariously bad. It does have its moments: Jan the Lounge Singer (Jasmine Windsong) taking an arrow to the throat was unexpected. And Karen’s stilted line reading (“Ever banged an entire bachelorette party, baby?) is a hoot.

'The Office' Recap: 'PDA'

PDA – do you love it or loathe it?

It seems relative to those in the situation. For anyone who’s been in a new romance, it’s great. For anyone who’s single, bitter, or even happily coupled, it can be disgusting. And Michael and Holly, cute though they are, have become that couple to some. They have become disgustingly cute.

Let’s start with the episode’s tag – Pam presents Darryl with a card in sympathy for the death of his almost-97-year-old grandmother. Unfortunately, that message is not properly communicated office-wide, and most write things like “Let’s get wasted!” in what they ...

If I had to choose, I’d say this is one of ‘The Office’s' weakest episodes of the season – at least until the end, when Michael & Holly save the world again.

The opening is nothing to speak of – Kelly & Ryan highlighting their “divorce” after getting married the previous week when they were “wasted.” Ummm, okay. I’m sorry, but isn’t their storyline played to death? And isn’t it a little ridiculous that B.J. Novak is considered a series regular when he gets less screen time then Ellie Kemper or Zach Woods?

Back to the heart of the episode – Jim and Michael go on a sales trip together, b...
