Checkout Our Emmy Prediction & Wish List For Comedy

7/11/2015 7:02pm EDT
Julia Louis-Dreyfus - Veep
The 2015 Emmy nominations will be announced Thursday, July 16. In the next few days, we will be offering our predictions and wish lists for the major categories.

A few major rule changes have taken effect this year:

The Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Drama Series fields have been expanded from six to seven shows.

All half-hour scripted series must now enter as comedies while all hour-length shows must enter as dramas. Thus, “Orange is the New Black” – previously entered as a Comedy – must now compete as a Drama. But individual programs are allowed to appeal to the TV Academy...

10 Celebrities You May Not Know Are Scientologists

7/8/2012 1:00pm EDT
Sofia Milos
It's widely known that Tom Cruise, John Travolta, his wife Kelly Preston and Kirstie Alley are scientologists. Cruise is going through a very public divorce with actress Katie Holmes, and it is allegedly due to his ties with the religion.

Twelve years ago, Travolta made the film "Battlefield Earth," a film adapted from the novel by Ron L. Hubbard, the founder of Scientology.

In 2010 on Larry King Live, Alley said her religion helped her with weight loss, considering she'd only been fat three or four years of her life. "God knows where I'd be if I hadn't changed the things I have changed,"...

'The Hangover Part II' Opens May 26th - Check Out The Hilarious New Trailer

4/1/2011 2:28pm EDT
The Hangover Part II
This trailer for this year's most anticipated comedy, The Hangover Part II, has officially arrived, and you can watch it right here!

The first teaser for the film, released just over a month ago, gave little about the film away other than that it takes place in Thailand and "The Wolfpack is Back."

Now we know that the gang travels to Thailand for Stu's wedding and that he's not taking any chances with a bachelor party, so a pre-wedding brunch is planned.

Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha return as "The Wolfpack," and are joined once again by Jeffrey Tambor, Mi...

3/18/2011 2:06pm EDT
Winn Winn
'Win Win' directed and written by Tom McCarthy (The Visitor and The Station Agent) explores the depths and nuances of human relationships. It shows us how under certain circumstances, even the most unlikely characters can come together and form a bond that is life changing.

Attorney Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti) is your typical Everyman. He has a loving wife Jackie ( brilliant Amy Ryan) and two small kids who adore him. The only thing Mike loves almost as much as his family is...'Wrestling'. Too bad the high school wrestling team Mike coaches along with his law partner, Stephen (Jeffr...

'Archer' 2.02 'A Going Concern' Review

2/4/2011 1:34am EST
Archer
This week's Archer begins with our hero confronting Malory about the mind-control chip implanted in his brain last season by the Russians. "You think he wanted to mind-control you into loving him?" she asks. "You tell me, that's your specialty," he retorts. In the heat of their argument, she tells him that she's selling ISIS to ODIN now that she's broke thanks to a Ponzi scheme. Oh, snap.

It comes out quickly that ODIN is interested in buying ISIS only because Len Trexler (Jeffrey Tambor) wants to sleep with Malory. While everyone panics because they know they're about to be fired ...

Archer FX Animated Series
As FX's inappropriately perfect spy comedy Archer returned for its second season last night at 10 PM, I sat down with creator Adam Reed, as well as series stars Aisha Tyler (who plays Agent Lana Kane) and Jessica Walter (matriarch Malory Archer) to talk about what makes this deliciously warped series tick.

Adam, how did you ever put this show together? It's so hilarious and yet how do you get away with the majority of the things that we see every week?

Adam Reed: I think partially because it’s animated, and people are more forgiving of a cartoon character saying or doing the things...

'Tangled' Review: Disney's Magic Is Back With Charming, Rousing Songs & Storyline

11/22/2010 9:21am EST
Tangled-091710-0008.jpg
Disney has had some hits and misses with animated films in recent memory. Sure, the mighty house of mouse made “Beauty and The Beast” “Aladdin” and “The Lion King” but “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” was sad, “Pocahontas” was oddly animated, “Hercules” was grotesque, and “Mulan” was lacking in song quality. The less said about “Home on The Range” the better.

So Disney went to CGI animated films and tried to play catch up to Pixar. The results thus far have been mixed. “Meet the Robinsons” was cute, “Bolt” was adorable, “Chicken Little” was middling, and nothing really captured the 90's magic...

Trailer Talk - This Week In Movies: 'Zombieland,' 'Whip It' & More

Zombieland
I've been going over my zombie survival plan and acquiring a variety of weapons in preparation for the arrival of "Zombieland" in theaters this week. Actually, I haven't been acquiring weapons since purchasing a gun is a lengthy process in Massachusetts, but I have been foaming at the mouth to see this zombie comedy since I watched the initial trailer several months ago.

Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson look like the perfect odd couple paired together in the hopes of survival. Eisenberg oozes the fraidy cat vibe in every clip I've seen of the movie, while Harrelson does his best mac...

'The Hangover' Review: Outlandish Humor That Will Make You Laugh

6/5/2009 3:55pm EDT
The Hangover
Sometimes in life what you see is what you get, but I've found that's not necessarily a bad thing. When it comes to "The Hangover" what you see is exactly what you get; and it's a great thing.

Brought to you by Todd Philips, the director of college themed movies like "Road Trip" and "Old School," "The Hangover" is an outrageous comedy loaded with gut busting laughs.

Set to get married in three days, Doug Billings sets out with his groomsmen for a wild night of debauchery, driving his future father-in-law's classic Mercedes. Along for the ride, are his kooky soon to be brother-i...

'Arrested Development' Cast: Where Are They Now?

Arrested Development
The family that chicken dances together, stays together. With the February 24 announcement that Michael Cera - the lone holdout - had finally signed on for the long-rumored Arrested Development movie, message boards went bonkers for Bluth bananas.

Cera is easily the most successful and visible post-Bluth. With SuperBad, Juno, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and Sundance darling Paper Heart, this kid has perfected the tentatively awkward comedic timing that made you root for the love story of George Michael and his cousin Maeby.

Where have the Bluths been since we last laughed a...

Interview: Nicole Sullivan Rocks!

Nicole Sullivan
(TJAGS weekly column) It was 9:30 PM, on a Thursday night, and I was in the middle of dinner and (more than a few) drinks at a local establishment. My phone starts vibrating in my left pocket, I don't recognize the number. I sheepishly answer and on the other end is the unmistakable voice of Nicole Sullivan (MADtv, The King of Queens, Rita Rocks) asking if this was a good time to speak. Our interview, scheduled earlier in the day, had been postponed -- I had thought, wrongly -- to another day.

She did not want to impose and explained we could reschedule. "Nonsense," I said, "we can st...
