Leonard Loves Doug Loves Movies

Doug Benson is a very funny guy. You may have seen him on TV or at a local comedy club; he tours all the time. Or you may be familiar with his stoner documentary Super-High Me. But I’ve gotten to know Doug because he hosts a podcast called Doug Loves Movies (formerly known as I Love Movies) that’s recorded in front of a live audience at L.A.’s comedy hotspot, Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. The heart of every show is a competition he calls—no kidding—The Leonard Maltin Game.
Doug is a dyed-in-the-wool movie buff, as smart as he is funny, and every week he gathers fellow standup comics and actors to play the game, in which he serves as quizmaster. The object is to guess the name of a movie based on—
—the cast list in my book, Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide—reading from the bottom up—and a few isolated phrases from my review. Contestants bid against each other on how many (or few) names it will take for them to identify the film. Guests have included Sarah Silverman, Patton Oswalt, Jon Hamm, Kevin Pollak, Bob Odenkirk, Tom Arnold, Tom Lennon, and Weird Al Yankovic, to name a few.

August 31st, get here.

Anchorman is coming to BluRay with 50 more minutes of Sex Panther

Even though fans were super bummed when plans for a proposed "Anchorman 2" were scuttled earlier this year, if you think about it, it would've actually been the third movie. There's "Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy," the film we all know and love and quote by heart, and there's "Wake Up Ron Burgundy" a sort-of feature cobbled together from all the outtakes and deleted scenes while shooting the original. And while we may not get another feature, the newest BluRay is giving enough new footage that we're sure somebody out there on the interwebs is gonna try and do something with it.

Paramount is releasing "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy The Unrated “Rich Mahogany” Edition" to BluRay, and instead of just double dipping in a new format, they've added 50 minutes of new outtakes, deleted and extended scenes, raw footage, cast auditions and more. In short, it's 50 more minutes of the cast riffing, fucking up and generally being hilarious and really, it's a pretty decent reason to upgrade (at least we hope).

The BluRay will hit stores on August 31st, and there will be a Best Buy exclusive with trading cards and a book. Full set details after the jump (new features in bold). [Collider]

I think this is maybe the 2nd or 3rd time I've thought "Holy Fuck, I really need a BluRay player"

Will? I certainly would.

Will Arnett came to 'Arrested Development's' rescue

While you may know Will Arnett from playing versions of the “the stunted, spoiled, filthy-rich dumb-ass," as GQ put it, throughout his career, the actor told the magazine in their September issue that he's ready to branch out.

In Fox's new sitcom "Running Wilde," he'll play Steve Wilde, the descendant of an oil tycoon who isn't above holding a competition with his neighbor to see who can purchase the smallest and most expensive Arabian horse. It may sound like the same obnoxious, wealthy character, but Wilde is different, Arnett pointed out: He's also a romantic who's bent on trying to regain the affection of a former sweetheart (played by Keri Russell).

“I'm moving out of my comfort zone," Arnett told GQ, "and right into my wheelhouse."

“Running Wilde” pairs Arnett up once again with “Arrested Development” creator Mitchell Hurwitz, who told GQ that Arnett really isn’t as off-putting as the characters he portrays.

“Like many comic performers who get known for the less-than-savory personas they depict, Will is really the antithesis of the self-involved, emotionally stunted clown who he so easily slips in and out of,” Hurwitz said. “Will is fascinated by entitlement—which is also something of a theme for me—and he's able to play characters that suffer from the dead end of that life condition because he understands both what's ridiculous about that lifestyle, and how insidious it can actually be.”

This ability ended up being a lifesaver for Hurwitz when he was struggling to find the right actor for “Development’s” Gob Bluth. “This is a guy who thinks this show is about him. If he was real and was also in this show he'd ask why we need Jason Bateman's kid in it. Or Jason Bateman himself,” Hurwitz explained of the character. “[E]veryone who came in just played it so ‘character-y.’”

It got to the point where a Fox exec was telling Hurwitz that his "Arrested Development" pilot was on its deathbed, but then, casting delivered the gift of Arnett. “And of course, Will came in and completely nailed it. I mean, after weeks of it not working as we'd hoped and suddenly it's so beyond what we'd hoped for.

“I'm benefiting from it still,” Hurwitz added, “as both a producer and as his friend.”

Stand Up to Cancer gets major celeb support

Laura Linney, Terrence Howard, Jim Parsons, Seth Rogen, Reese Witherspoon and Stevie Wonder are among the dozens of celebrities who have committed to appearing on the multinetwork Stand Up to Cancer telethon Sept. 10.

Also among the participants are thesps Christina Applegate, David Boreanaz, Abigail Breslin, Fran Drescher, Sally Field, Alyson Hannigan, Jon Heder, Marg Helgenberger, Ken Jeong, Rashida Jones, Minka Kelly, Zachary Levi, Ray Liotta, Mandy Moore, Gabrielle Union, Sofia Vergara and Marissa Jaret Winokur.

In addition, athletes including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Lance Armstrong, Derek Fisher, Tony Hawk and Apolo Anton Ohno are onboard, with musical performances including a collaboration by Wonder, Natasha Bedingfield, Queen Latifah, Martina McBride, Aaron Neville and Dave Stewart.

ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC and more than a dozen cable networks will broadcast the event commercial-free, live on the East Coast at 8 p.m., delayed in the West.

"We are eternally grateful for the remarkable support we've received from the entire entertainment community," said Stand Up to Cancer co-founder Sherry Lansing. "We couldn't do this without everyone's help -- from the networks and cable channels donating the airtime to our celebrity volunteers participating in the show and a lot of other people in between."

News anchors Katie Couric, Diane Sawyer and Brian Williams will host the telethon, which premiered in 2008 and helped raise more than $100 million.

"On Sept. 10th, we'll send a resounding message: We can cure cancer," said Stand Up to Cancer co-founder Laura Ziskin. "It's going to take guts, brains and the ongoing support of the public, but we can do this."

in my head right now.

also in love with Brian Chase.

for whatever reason it is everyone's favorite thing to make trailer mash-ups with Inception and something else. Bill & Ted's is the best, this one is know, if you've experienced The Room.
