Aaliyah
So far this year Hollywood has given us the James Brown, Britney Murphy and Cesar Chavez biopics. (Bet you’d never thought you’d see those three personas looped together, did ya?) Brace yourself, La La land’s conveyor belt of biography films on the big and small screen will move next to R&B princess Aaliyah (premiering on Lifetime this weekend) followed by Angela Bassett’s take on Whitney Houston.

13 Departed Actors The World Misses
While their lively characters and stories split our sides and ignited our waterworks, it's still hard to belive that these talented actors and comedians have come and gone. Taken much too soon, these film icons made an indelible mark on Hollywood and the world at large. Even though they may be gone, their performances will never be forgotten. These are the 13 departed actors the entertainment industry, and all of us at home, dearly miss.

Chris Farley was one of the most popular players on SNL during the 1990's, giving hilarious displays of raw physical comedy including his motivational spe...

Comedy And Tragedy: Comedians Who Passed Away While Still In Their Prime

October 18th, 2010 2:07pm EDT
Greg Giraldo
Last month, the comedy world lost two great stand-up comedians – Robert Schimmel and Greg Giraldo. Schimmel was best known for his appearances on "The Howard Stern Radio Show" and several HBO specials, displaying his off-color humor. Giraldo was known for his appearances as a roaster on Comedy Central's annual roast of celebrities and as a judge on last season's "Last Comic Standing" on NBC. Both comedians died under unusual circumstances – Schimmel died from injuries suffered in a car accident, and Giraldo passed away from an accidental overdose of prescription medication. These two comedi...

Writer's Viewpoint: 'Saturday Night Live' Replaces Two Cast Members

September 8th, 2009 2:59pm EDT
Michaela Watkins - Casey Wilson
Stunning reports have come out recently regarding Saturday Night Live. Anonymous sources reported to Access Hollywood that SNL will be replacing Michaela Watkins and Casey Wilson with Jenny Slate and Nasim Pedrad and Yahoo TV! reports that Kristen Wiig will be joining Seth Meyers on Weekend Update.

I am certainly not privy of the details concerning the release of the two, so it is unfair for me to speculate as to the reason for their departure. That said, it seems as though they were on the show but for the blink of an eye and are being thrown out as if they were the drunken, err, coca...

Rockin' and Reelin': Seven Spectacular Movie Concerts

July 7th, 2009 10:00am EDT
School of Rock
Pull out your lighter, turn up the volume, and get ready to throw up the horns. This jammin' compilation is my top seven compilation of climactic movie concerts. Why seven? Seven is a nice odd number.

When I first decided to form a list of top movie concerts, I thought having a wealth of film knowledge would help me out. Sitting down to draft the list however, I found myself at a loss for ideas. I couldn't see the forest for the trees, and plots sat jumbled together in my head.

After thinking for a few days and taking a stroll through my neighborhood Blockbuster's going out of bu...

25 Surprise Celebrity Deaths That Rocked Us All

April 7th, 2009 9:10am EDT
Natasha Richardson
Actress Natasha Richardson's unexpected death in a skiing accident late last month stunned and saddened the public. The usually overzealous media even seemed to tread lightly, gently reporting a story it never expected to tell. For a culture that values and admires celebrity, the death of vibrant public figures with potential yet to fulfill serves as a harsh reminder that despite glamour, talent and seemingly charmed lives, all of us are mortal. Whether on screens big or small, over the radio airwaves or in bright vivid color on canvas, the sudden passing of an entertainer can feel like the...

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.

Now I could tell Bobby was a really nice guy, but I thought he was just trying to be polite. I was pleasantly surprised (read: screamed like a 12 year old girl!) when a week later he followed up on that invitation and asked if I wan...

Top 10 MADtv Actors

May 5th, 2008 8:30am EDT
Dan Chruscinski
Previously filmed in Los Angeles, it's Saturday night. Never quite catching on with the same fervor as its New York competition, MADtv has still carved a niche for itself appealing to a younger demographic who favor repeat characters and dead-on celebrity impersonations over topical sketches. Like Saturday Night Live though, "MADtv" has had some fantastic cast members during its 13-year tenure as well as some real clunkers. Why focus on the bad though when we can celebrate the good. Some of these actors have gone on to mediocre careers; others still remain stuck in obscurity. Here are the ...

The 10 Greatest Cast Members Of 'Saturday Night Live'

April 7th, 2008 2:30pm EDT
Eddie Murphy
Live from New York, it's Saturday Night! These seven words have been shouted from Studio 8H of Rockefeller Center since Lorne Michaels created "Saturday Night Live" in 1975. 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...
