Kings Of Leon Members To Cameo On 'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia'

December 8th, 2011 8:52pm EST
It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia
Kings of Leon rockers Nathan and Jared Followill are making their acting debut on Danny DeVito's madcap TV comedy It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

The brothers recently joined DeVito and cast members Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton and Rob McElhenney to film cameos for the cult series - and it airs on Thursday night.

Alerting fans to his guest appearance on his Twitter.com blog, Jared Followill writes, "I'm making my acting debut tonight on It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia... with @Glenn_Howerton. It's touching stuff."

And his proud brother and bandmate Nathan also urged fans to tune in,...

'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: 'Thunder Gun Express'

December 2nd, 2011 12:54pm EST
Kaitlin Olson in
Sorry for the delay with today's recap, folks. I was having some Internet problems. I blame Obama.

This week, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” tries a theme episode – the action-movie-within-an-action-movie, “Thunder Gun Express” – with mixed results. Although there are some funny moments, it never reaches the level of the brilliant “Community” theme episodes, against which all theme episodes must now be measured. Compared to its own attempts at themes or gimmicks, this installment of “Sunny” is certainly better than “Frank’s Brother” or “The Gang Cracks the Liberty Bell,” but not near...

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: 'How Mac Got Fat'

November 18th, 2011 10:26am EST
Rob McElhenney in
While last week’s episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” started in the middle and never looked back, this week’s installment is told mostly in flashback. Via the classic church confessional setup, Mac finally acknowledges the elephant in the room: that he is the elephant in the room. (Oh, snap!)

Although Mac now realizes that the extra mass around his waist isn’t muscle, he isn’t about to take responsibility for being fat. As that poor priest quickly discovers, “How Mac Got Fat” is a convoluted story, told from Mac’s POV, that explains why the Paddy’s gang of “sinners and pricks...

'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: 'The Gang Gets Trapped'

November 11th, 2011 9:20am EST
Glenn Howerton, Kaitlin Olson and Charlie Day in
"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” shook up its formula this week with "The Gang Gets Trapped," a creative yet odd episode that caught up with the gang in media res. For a story that was pretty much all "middle"—with no flashback to its beginning and an awkward ending—it was easy to follow, wildly entertaining and jam-packed with laugh-out-loud moments.

The episode takes place entirely in an unknown person's home, and begins with Dennis and Dee trapped in the closet with R. Kelly nowhere to be found and Frank hiding under a bed. With a clever bit of exposition, Dennis quickly ge...

'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: 'The ANTI-Social Network'

This week, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” asks the questions: Would Paddy's Pub have more business if it had a Facebook page? Why does Dennis seem like a Facebook novice, when he should have long been using any number of social media sites to lure women down to the bang bunker? Is shushing just about the most annoying thing a person can do to another person? Can a man blow a sign off a building? Some of these are answered; the most vexing one is not. I mean, seriously, how has Dennis overlooked the woman-hunting power of the Internet thus far? Wasn't he on MySpace back when Frank creat...

'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: 'Chardee MacDennis: The Game Of Games'

October 28th, 2011 10:55am EDT
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
This week on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” the gang introduces us to Chardee MacDennis. Although that sounds like a character from some terrible young adult fiction series, it’s not. It’s a game. Actually, to quote Charlie, “it’s not just a game, it’s a war.”

It seems that once upon a time, the gang created their own board game – a game that is once again being dusted off as an antidote to mind-numbing boredom. I immediately love this idea because I remember back to when I was a kid and how my friends and I would occasionally attempt to create the “best game ever” and fail miser...

Married It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia co-stars Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney are expecting their second child.

The actress gave birth to the couple's son, Axel Lee, last year and now the star is pregnant with another boy.

She jokes to People.com, "We're having a boy! We're so happy that Axel gets to have a brother so close in age. And that I get to add another set of balls to my very, very male world. We found out I was pregnant during my mom's birthday weekend in Ojai (California)."

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: 'The Storm of the Century'

Danny DeVito, Kaitlin Olson and Charlie Day in
Although it's not on the same level as the first few episodes of this season, the latest episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" is definitely a step up from the meh-ness of last week's "Frank's Brother."

In "The Storm of the Century," we get to see how each member of the gang reacts to a potential crisis—in this case, the kind of media-hyped storm that drives people with perfectly normal digestive systems to run out and stock up on a year's supply of toilet paper.

It's revealed that Paddy's basement is equipped with a bunker, which Dee insisted upon prior to Y2K (the "robopocay...

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: 'Frank's Brother'

October 14th, 2011 1:50pm EDT
Danny DeVito in It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
It seems that after the frenzied hilarity of the first three episodes and last week’s rather dark turn, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" is taking a breather with a rather lackluster decade-spanning flashback fantasy. But given that this season has been strong right out of the gate, that’s perfectly OK.

Much like the other fantasy ep, “The Gang Cracks the Liberty Bell,” “Frank’s Brother” probably won’t end up on a lot of “best of” lists nor does it really warrant repeated viewings. Still, it’s not without its charm. However, most of that charm doesn’t come from any of the main charac...

'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: 'Sweet Dee Gets Audited'

October 7th, 2011 10:31am EDT
Kaitlin Olson in
In its fourth episode, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" takes a quick meta-moment to acknowledge to the audience that it's really pushing the envelope this year. It seems a bit odd (and maybe a little late) to make that acknowledgement on a show that's always tested the boundaries of good taste. So what is the gang doing now that warrants poking a hole in the fourth wall? Oh, just throwing a baby funeral. That it's fake doesn't make it any less uncomfortable.

The not-really-dead baby in question is the one Dee gave birth to last season, and the one she's claimed (and intends to contin...

Theatre Talk: 'How The World Began' With Jarrett Sleeper

Jarrett Sleeper knows a thing or two about How The World Began. He gets to debate that very subject in South Coast Repertory's newest play.

Southern California may be known as the home of film and television, but it also has a vibrant theatre scene. In the same place where you look for your favorite stars, you can see quite a few names from TV and film right in front of you on stage. In recent memory, the likes of Laurence Fishburne, Alan Cumming and Michael Trucco have been found in our regional theatre scene.

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: 'Frank Reynolds' Little Beauties'

September 30th, 2011 8:04am EDT
Danny Devito in
This week, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" comes about as close as it ever will to producing a "Cable in the Classroom" lesson. Hopefully, everyone involved with "Toddlers and Tiaras" and idiot stage moms everywhere were paying attention to "Frank Reynolds' Little Beauties," because there will be a test later.

As I've mentioned in my previous recaps, the action so far on this season of Sunny has been frenzied. The first two episodes split the gang into groups of three, causing a LOT of story to get jammed into a mere half hour show. (Not that the rapid-fire hilarity hasn't been fun, ...

'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: The Gang Goes To The Jersey Shore

September 23rd, 2011 10:15am EDT
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Just like you can't always judge a book by its cover, you can't always judge a "Sunny" episode by its title. If anyone was worried that this week's installment would be a lackluster half hour filled with little more than orange skin and Snooki jokes, those fears were allayed by a barrage of images much more disturbing than the "Jersey Shore"'s STD-infested hot tub.

Last week, I mentioned that the premiere felt a little too all over the place. The same can be said for this week's episode, but for some reason, the more randomness that was introduced and the more things spiraled out of cont...

Announcing the news during an appearance on late night U.S. talk show Conan on Thursday, Howerton admitted the couple had waited until after the tot's birth to find a suitable name.

He said, "My wife and I thought it would be a good idea to wait to see the baby first before we actually decided what his name would be; get a sense of the guy.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Frank's Pretty Woman
When we last saw the Paddy's gang, they were witnessing the miracle of birth. When we caught up with them last night, they were dumping a dead hooker in the hallway. Ah, the circle of life.

If last season's baby-centric finale left anyone with a slightly sweet feeling, Season 7 quickly veers us back into sour territory, as "Sunny" pulls out all the sick and twisted stops that we've come to expect. Things get rolling when Frank, always striving to prove himself as the most disgusting member of the group, reveals that he has big plans for his hooker girlfriend Roxy (Alanna Ubach): "I'm gon...

Charlie Day Steals The Show In 'Horrible Bosses'

July 10th, 2011 1:31pm EDT
Horrible Bosses
It's often said that comedic acting is more difficult than dramatic acting, for various reasons. On one hand, it's a real shame that comedic actors are never recognized for their works with Oscars or other prestigious awards. On the other hand, so many comedies are so lazy (Adam Sandler's last five movies, for instance) that they deserve the derision and low reputation they get. All of this makes it all the more delightful when a brilliant, excellent, elevating comedic performance comes along; the kind delivered by Charlie Day in "Horrible Bosses."

From the beginning, Day has his work c...

'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: Dee Gives Birth

The Gang and baby
This season of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” has had its ups and downs, but with last night’s finale, it ended on a high note.

When Dee goes into labor (right in the middle of Dennis and Mac’s investigation into why Frank and Charlie hang out in the sewer), the rest of the gang worries. Not about Dee’s or the baby’s well-being or anything dumb like that, of course. No, they start worrying about how the kid is going to mess up their lives. Hell, it’s still in Dee’s uterus and already it’s ruined the transmission in Dennis’s car and interrupted the “perfectly good sewer conversation....

After the lackluster “King of the Rats” episode, "It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia" bounced back beautifully with last night’s little tale of a road trip gone awry. Unlike in last season’s “The Gang Hits the Road,” the gang actually manages to make it out of Philly this time—and the change of scenery was just the breath of fresh air this somewhat uneven season needed.

Frank takes the very well-dressed gang on a trip to an Atlantic City casino, where—thanks to a very large donation—he’s scheduled to be the keynote speaker at an animal rights event. That charitable move doesn’t really mak...

So, I've been reading a lot of gushing around the Interwebs from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" fans who seem to think that this week's episode was hilarious, with some even going as far as calling it the best of the season. That kind of talk makes me feel like Charlie at the movie theater—I can't figure out which dimension I'm living in.

Being a "Charlie episode," I was really looking forward to this one, but I just didn't get it. While it had a good premise—Frank convinces the normally selfish gang to throw Charlie, burned out from a life of rat killing, a surprise birthday party—...
