Paul Newman Tribute Planned for 'Cars 2'

March 2nd, 2011 10:04pm EST
Cars
The Cars sequel will feature a touching tribute to late movie icon Paul Newman, who voiced the role of Doc Hudson in the 2006 original.

Newman's car character will not appear in the new movie, but Newman and Doc will be honored, according to director John Lasseter.

He tells the Los Angeles Times' 24 Frames blog, "We have a lovely tribute to Paul in the movie, but we didn't feel it would be right to include him or the character."

Newman's Hudson was a former champion racecar before a terrible accident ended its career. He became a doctor, life coach and elder of Radiator Springs - the for...

An Insider's Look At 'SNL' Behind The Scenes

April 1st, 2009 10:53am EDT
SNL
I am a Saturday Night Live junkie - so much so that at times I have trouble hiding how big of a fan when that little thing called professionalism may be at stake. It was so apparent in the interview I conducted with current featured player Bobby Moynihan - a self-described "SNL" nerd himself - that he casually mentioned the prospect of me attending a show.

Underrated/Overrated 'Saturday Night Live' Weekend Update Anchors

October 20th, 2008 12:48pm EDT
Kevin Nealon
Last week and for the next few, "Saturday Night Live" will move its oldest property, "Weekend Update" to primetime.

It seems we can no longer call the cast the Not-Ready-For-Primetime Players as they bring their cornerstone segment to a timeslot previously occupied by shows like "Frasier" and "Friends". This gives SNL a chance to enter the mainstream in a way it never has before, and with the endless wave of news (both straightforward and comedic) "Weekend Update" is the perfect vehicle to bring late night to primetime.

Unfortunately, those who don't like to stay up late are forc...

About three weeks ago, one of the world's best comedians and the first host of "Saturday Night Live" passed away. Here at the worldwide offices of overrated/underrated, we felt a tribute was in order. Problem is, there's nothing you can say about George Carlin that fits the motif.
