On Tuesday, the cast of the comedy classic Wayne's World held a panel discussion in Beverly Hills.

Can 'MacGruber' Break The SNL Movie Curse?

May 20th, 2010 9:00am EDT
Can MacGruber Break The SNL Movie Curse
Of all the recent "Saturday Night Live" recurring characters, MacGruber seemed the least likely to land his own feature film. After all, the skit spends about 15 seconds with the action hero before he's blown to smithereens.

However, star Will Forte imagined greater things for our mulleted man of action, and he convinced Lorne Michaels and the powers that be to turn the skit into a 90-minute film that opens Friday.

"MacGruber" is getting solid buzz on the eve of its opening, but has to overcome the stigma that SNL films can't cut it both from a quality and financial standpoint. There ha...

Halloween II
When John Carpenter envisioned his horrific tale of a serial killer terrorizing his family more than 30 years ago, he likely had no idea that "Halloween" would become one of the longest-running film franchises ever.

Over the course of 10 films, including Rob Zombie's two semi-unrelated movies ("Halloween II" opens Aug. 28), many famous faces have drifted through Haddonfield, some in major roles, others in bit parts.

Here are nine stars who have felt Michael Myers' wrath in the "Halloween" films.

The original name of the show was simply "Saturday Night" because at the time ABC had a show entitled "Saturday Night Live with Howard Cosell."

Choosing 10 of the show's best cast members is not a task to be taken lightly. We looked at what qualities go into making a perfect cast member as opposed to just picking performers who went on to greater fame after they left the show (though sometimes this happened anyw...
