Ricky Gervais
Funnyman Ricky Gervais has defended his upcoming TV show Afterlife, insisting he is not attempting to "undermine the moral fabric of America."

The Office creator revealed earlier this week he is working on a new comedy with writer Clyde Phillips, about an atheist who dies and goes to heaven.

However, he is furious it has already been labeled an "atheist comedy" and is urging fans not to judge the show until they've seen it.

In a post on his official blog, Gervais writes, "How is a show called Afterlife, about an atheist who dies and goes to heaven, an 'Atheist Comedy'? He goes to heaven...

Invention of Lying
Ricky Gervais directs himself in The Invention of Lying, a comedy in which everyone in the world tells the truth except for one misfit in the film industry, who after discovering the act of lying, milks it to become the world's most phenomenal performer.

In a world where people speak the truth and have no concept of deception, a young man about to lose everything invents the "lie" and goes on to change not just the nature of movie-making, but creates the basis of religion. After much effort, he also gets the girl he loves.

The Invention of Lying is the brilliant new Ricky Gervais comedy about a society where there's no such thing as lying and then a gentleman essentially creates the first lie, rolls with it and creates waves along the way.

We had the chance to sit down with Martin Starr, who is one of the best character actors around under the age of 30 (Freaks and Geeks, Knocked Up, SuperBad) , to talk about his part in the film and some of the things that he's up to.

Eric Stromsvold: Can you tell us a little bit about your character?

Martin Starr: I don't have a very big part [and] I kind of thou...

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...
