Jared Padalecki, Joel McHale, Nick Jonas Diss Justin Bieber

Joel McHale
Several stars took shots at Justin Bieber for his alleged egging of a neighbor's house and the resulting police search that got a friend arrested for cocaine possession.  

Joel McHale was on Conan last night to promote Community, but host Conan O'Brien could help but ask him why Justin was tossing eggs around. "Because he's a f-ing idiot… I feel like he’s got all those guys around him; he’s just running out of things to do. He’s so rich and so successful that they’re like, ‘Well, what do you want to do?’ and he’s like, ‘Let’s shave a dog, what do you want to do?’"

McHale added later, "I...

The stars of hit movie Bridesmaids were the toast of The Comedy Awards in New York City over the weekend as the film landed four of the night's top trophies.

Melissa McCarthy, who won an Oscar nomination for her part in the movie, scooped Best Performance by an Actress during the Comedy Central prize giving at the Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan on Saturday night.

The actress' co-star Kristen Wiig shared the Best Comedy Screenplay prize with her co-writer Annie Mumolo, and the pair drew laughs from the audience by pretending to wrestle for the trophy on stage.

Joel McHale Hopes Chevy Chase Drama Will Help Get 'Community' Renewed

April 13th, 2012 8:35am EDT
Community
"Community" star Joel McHale hopes the public war of words between his co-star Chevy Chase and show creator Dan Harmon will lead to a spike in ratings for the show because the series has yet to get picked up for a fourth season.

Chase famously lashed out against Harmon during a expletive-laden voicemail earlier this month, calling the scriptwriter an a**hole and an alcoholic. The message went viral after Harmon aired the clip at a Los Angeles comedy club.

The pair has continued to hurl insults at one another, with the writer confessing he should not have gone public with the audio.

Interview: Upbeat Joel McHale And Dan Harmon Talk 'Community'

March 16th, 2012 3:00pm EDT
community
“I don’t want to raise expectations, but this is going to be the greatest second half of any television show in the history of the world.” He may be joking, but Community star Joel McHale’s upbeat attitude perfectly echoes the feelings of the legions of fans who have been anxiously awaiting the return of TV’s most inventive and creative comedy. After being put on hiatus by NBC back in November (never a good sign for a show which has struggled to increase viewership), Community returned last night with a long-awaited new episode called “Urban Matrimony and the Sandwich Arts.”

Check Out 'Spy Kids: All The Time In The World' On DVD & Blu-ray Nov. 22

November 12th, 2011 7:17am EST
Spy Kids all the time in the world
A retired spy-turned-full-time homemaker attempts to stop a power-mad supervillain from taking over the planet and gets some unexpected help from her disagreeable twin step-children in "Spy Kids: All The Time In The World."

It's been a long time since former OSS agent Marissa Cortez Wilson (Jessica Alba) went chasing bad guys. These days it's hard enough just to get her precocious stepkids, Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook), to clean their rooms, and make sure her baby daughter has a full sippy cup. And despite the fact that Marissa's husband, Wilbur (Joel McHale), ea...

Celebrity Tweets: Reaction To Libyan Dictator Moammar Gadhafi's Death

October 21st, 2011 12:00pm EDT
Seth Meyers
The big global news yesterday was the capture and death of Libyan Dictator Moammar Gadhafi at the hands of rebels. Of course, celebrities took to their Twitter accounts to react to the stunning news.

Head SNL writer Seth Meyers tweeted: "Gadhaffi's last words were 'How my hair look, Mike?' #Unconfirmed" and "And he was so close to making general #Gadhaffi."

Seth then pointed readers to comic Colin Quinn, who wrote a series of tweets on the situation as was receiving angry responses. Quinn wrote posts such as "Another great innovator who started in the 80's and regained popularity recently...

'Community' Recap: Competitive Ecology

October 10th, 2011 7:55am EDT
community 3
The most recent episode of NBC’s “Community” is, in some ways, one of its most meta and self-referential outings. Greendale Community College’s motley study group always seems to be spending more time arguing and screwing off then actually studying (a serious complaint from the show’s critics). In “Competitive Ecology,” the writers, in their unique way, address those who take issue with that aspect of the show.

The team’s Biology professor, Dr. Kane, tells the class that they’ll be partnering up to build a terrarium which will be due the next day. Instead of letting the students choose the...

'Breaking Bad's' Betsy Brandt Visits 'The Soup'

Betsy Brandt
Programming alert: Breaking Bad star Betsy Brandt will be appearing on E!'s The Soup tonight at 10 PM ET/PT.

Betsy (best known for her role as Marie Schrader on the AMC drama) takes part in a sketch with host (and Community leading man) Joel McHale on tonight's show. I'd say more, but I've been sworn to secrecy. I have it on good authority that it's hilarious.

Here's a pic of Betsy on the set. In case you missed it, you can also read my interview with her about this season of Breaking Bad, which airs its season finale this Sunday at 10 PM ET/PT on AMC.

Interview: Joel McHale And Guest Star John Goodman Joke About Third Season Of 'Community'

September 23rd, 2011 11:00am EDT
john goodman
“John [Goodman] is terribly disruptive. He parked his car on the stage and said ‘This is my parking space,’” Joel McHale says of the sitcom legend who is guest starring on this season of “Community.” Goodman clarifies, “I parked it on a stagehand.” The two are joking, obviously, but this back and forth banter is a perfect example of the hour-long “gush fest” the two actors engaged in when discussing the new season of “Community.”

McHale returns for Season Three as Jeff Winger, the cocky ex-lawyer who runs a small, ragtag study group at Greendale Community College. Goodman will appear as Vi...

‘Community’ Recap: Biology 101

One of the most entertaining aspects of NBC’s “Community,” now entering Season Three, is its ability to never take itself too seriously. From “Pulp Fiction”-inspired episodes to claymation hallucinations to Sergio Leone-style paintball competitions, “Community” is one of the most inventive shows currently on television.

The episode kicks off with an over-the-top musical number featuring the entire cast (save Chevy Chase’s Pierce Hawthorne who left the group at the end of last season) which describes the characters’ goals for this year (meaning season). As it turns out, the sequence is just...

A dwarf couple is suing E! Entertainment and "The Soup" host Joel McHale, claiming they made scurrilous, false, defamatory and hurtful comments about them.

Heidi Klum Tempts Fate With Smashed Mirror Dress at Elton John's Oscar Party; Gives Jay Leno her Panties (Video)

Heidi Klum
Heidi Klum wore an unusual mirrored dress to the 19th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party on Sunday. Do you think she'll have seven years of bad luck?

During the event, Heidi was approached by Ross Matthews - aka Ross the Intern - from The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, who was looking for goodies from the event to bring back to Jay.

Leno didn't attend Elton's yearly Oscar party or get one of the fancy gift bags that were given out, so Ross went around asking the stars if they'd be willing to donate anything to the late night host.

Oscars Shmoscars. There’s another awards show before the big night on Sunday. Joel McHale is hosting the Independent Spirit Awards, and he’s looking forward to meeting the nominees. Particularly Natalie Portman who impressed him in Black Swan.

“I was taken out of the movie a couple times because like is that really her dancing?” McHale said. “Because if it is, what else can’t she do? The jerk… no, because if they were like, ‘We want you to be a male dancer in this, Joel’ I’d be like mm, there’s going to be some injuries and a lot of laughter.

'Community' Co-Stars Talk Season 2 and Chemistry 101

Before tuning in for the premiere of “Community” this Thursday on NBC, we were lucky enough to chat with co-stars Joel McHale and Alison Brie about going back to school for a sophomore season and all the crazy chemistry on the set of their hilarious hit comedy.

Fan favorites, Joel McHale and Alison Brie play the study group’s de facto leader, Jeff Winger, and its most studious pupil, Annie Edison. After their characters shared an unexpected kiss in a mid-season episode, the blogosphere was buzzing about the pair’s great chemistry. However, their romantic reunion on the season finale was de...

Jessica Alba's Sparkly Silver Dress - Hot Or Not?

Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba wore a shimmering silver dress to celebrate "Fashion's Night Out" in New York on Friday.

We think she's pretty hot, but a new end-of-summer survey ranked Jennifer Garner ahead of her as "Hollywood's Hottest Mama." Not fair!

We just discovered that Jess is starring in "Spy Kids 4" alongside Joel McHale. The two will play the parents of the new spy kids. We're not sure this is a good career move, Jess.

She will also appear in "Little Fockers," in which a birthday party for the twins gives Greg (Ben Stiller) an opportunity to redeem himself after he takes a job that raises the...

Interview: Fan Favorite Danny Pudi Eating Up 'Community' And Webisode Roles

April 30th, 2010 9:52am EDT
Danny Pundi - Star Brow
Danny Pudi has easily become a fan favorite on NBC’s new sitcom hit Community, as Abed, a Greendale student with an interest in film studies and an encyclopedia of knowledge about pop culture in his brain, who may or may not have Asperger’s. Due to Pudi, Abed has become so much more than just a character pushed to the side, lost in a sea of louder, more veteran comedians.

"I'm very fortunate," Pudi admitted on a phone interview with Starpulse, "because I think the writers have given me so much to work on and expand on, and you kind of never know in comedy how these things will work out bei...

'Community' Recap: 'The Art of Discourse'

Put on your homage-spotting caps, it's another new episode of Community.

After last-week's dead-ringer mafia movie/Scorcese parody, the writers took on the godfather of college hijinx flicks- Animal House.

It all begins with Abed, the catalyst for all the meta self-awareness in the Greendale universe, trying to complete his freshman year bucket list by recreating gags culled from classic college comedies.

Troy agrees to be his Morgan Freeman character and is promptly pantsed by Abed, who is disappointed Troy isn't wearing the traditional white heart-print boxers. Troy returns the favor (...

This week's episode of Community, "Beginner Pottery," uses the same premise as "Introduction to Film," something the characters acknowledge when Jeff comes to them with a blow-off class suggestion.

Abed and Annie choose to join him, while Pierce shows up in nautical regalia in order to convince the group to take a one-week boating class. Shirley and Britta are on board, as well as Troy, who says, "A black person on a boat? I gotta see this. I'm in."

Nevermind the nearest body of water is more than two hours away, the school has recently acquired a sailboat, The Nose Candy, via police auct...

What's The Best Show On TV? Starpulse Writers Weigh In

What's the best show on TV right now? Several Starpulse writers tackle that very question and defend their favorite series as must-see TV. Do you agree with their picks? Take a look, and let us know!

"MODERN FAMILY"

Despite virtually no notoriety and severe initial undermarketing, the critically-adored "Modern Family" has picked up speed and is headed for a second season. Its approach is not unfamiliar, but it's greater than the sum of its parts. And don't let the unassuming name put you off.

The show follows one extended family on everyday occurrences like kids fighting in school, Fer...

'Community' Recap: 'Basic Genealogy'

March 12th, 2010 9:52am EST

Just when I thought Community could not get any wilder and awkward, family week at Glendale happened.

Abed brought his family, which was the punch line for many racist jokes by Pierce. Senor Chan brought his brother, who told Senor Chan how ridiculous his name sounds. Troy brought his grandmother, who was “old school”, and ended up whooping Britta with a “switch” (stick).

Jeff has no family, while Pierce brought his super hot ex-stepdaughter, which lead to a classic Pierce line, “Over the course of seven marriages, I've amassed some 32 stepchildren."

Things got a little weird as Pierce w...

'Community' At PaleyFest: A Taste Of What Being On Their Set Is Like!

March 4th, 2010 11:43am EST
Community Paley fest
My audio recording from last night's PaleyFest panel honoring the acting and producing talent of NBC's hit sitcom, Community, is pretty much nonsensical. Between the raucous laughter from the audience, creator Dan Harmon's long, rambling stories, and star Chevy Chase's Christopher Walken-like way of answering questions, everyone had a ton of fun but it became incredibly clear that the show is even more remarkable simply for managing to get scenes shot, despite the crazy off-screen behavior!

Hopes For 2010

Hopes for 2010
It's a new year, and it's time to dump the Top Ten lists and look forward to the things we hope to see in the near future. What do we want to see more of? What do we want to see end? Who do we want to see naked? The questions are endless, so here goes:

I hope Megan Fox reconsiders her "no nudity on camera" stance. Halle Berry showed frontal in Swordfish, then did an explicit sex scene in Monster's Ball, and then she got an Oscar. Just saying.

I hope Lost doesn't fall into its disturbingly common habit of making absolutely no sense for episodes at a time. I also hope the finale is rev...
