Adam Brody Goes Back to The O.C. for MTV's Animated 'Good Vibes'

by Maggie Furlong, posted Oct 27th 2011 1:00PM
Adam Brody, 'Good Vibes'Adam Brody is back in the O.C. ... sort of. His new animated coming-of-age surfer comedy, 'Good Vibes' (premieres Thurs., Oct. 27, 10:30PM ET on MTV), finds Brody voicing Woodie, a horny Southern California teenager with a heart of gold -- and a surfboard graffitied to look like a penis.

Created by David Gordon Green -- the guy behind 'Pineapple Express' and HBO's 'Eastbound & Down' -- the show has an all-star cast, including Josh Gad ('Book of Mormon,' anyone?) as Woodie's new best friend, Mondo; Debi Mazar as Mondo's mom, Babs; Alan Tudyk as Lonnie the beach-bum guru; and Green's pal Danny McBride as Ms. Teets, the sex ed teacher. Olivia Thirlby, Jake Busey and Tony Hale also lend their voices.

Brody describes 'Good Vibes' as "super raunchy," which makes it the perfect show to follow returning favorite 'Beavis and Butt-head.' Keep reading for more details on the show, 'O.C.' comparisons and an exclusive sneak peek at an upcoming episode.

'Chelsea Lately': Adam Brody Loves Playing Dumb Cops (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 13th 2011 2:03AM
Adam Brody, 'Chelsea Lately'Adam Brody admitted on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!) that he likes playing dumb cops. He's got another one lined up for 'Scream 4.'

"They're so terrible at their job," he laughed. "I love playing an idiot with a gun."

Chelsea Handler suggested he maybe play a rapper in his next film, but we have an even better idea. Somebody needs to get Adam Brody into the next 'Police Academy' film. If they go with the proposed continuation, he could simply be a new recruit.

But if they decide to reboot the franchise, our vote for Brody is the role of Mahoney, made famous by Steve Guttenberg in the first four films and subsequent cartoon series. He's got the right blend of handsomeness, charm and goofiness to make it work.

The OC: The End's Not Near, It's Here (series finale)

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Feb 23rd 2007 12:33AM

The OC -- Season 4 Cast

(S04E16) Does this count as the end of an era? I'm not sure. When The OC first began, it sure felt like the beginning of an era. Now that it's over, I'm not exactly sure what it's the end of. Other than something that I'm really, really going to miss.

I have to be honest. The first twenty or so minutes of this episode fell pretty flat for me. I really wasn't enjoying the six-month jump, only to find out that everything we thought we knew was no more. Julie was engaged to Bullit, Taylor was back in France, and Seth and Summer had become "comfortable." Nothing was right, and despite the fact that we all knew how this was going to end, I was a little put off by the way it started. But it picked up steam and by the episode's end, I was completely satisfied with the way it all turned out.

The OC: The Case of the Franks

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Feb 2nd 2007 11:14AM

Ben McKenzie as Ryan Atwood on 'The OC.'(S04E13) One down and four to go. It's starting to feel like the end too, isn't it? Everyone seems to be finding their place. Sort of.

First off... Frank. I don't think I like him as much as I did the first time around. The whole idea of Ryan's father suddenly being in the picture feels a little forced. It was really the one unresolved thing left in his life and for that reason I suppose it makes sense that he's here now. It's just awkward and I can't quite put my finger on why. Maybe because he's been around for about 8 seconds and he's in love with Julie? Or because it's Kevin Sorbo?

I suppose it doesn't matter because the one thing you have to remember is what the show is about.

When co-stars hook up (then break up)

by Kelly Woo, posted Jan 24th 2007 4:23PM

Men in Trees on ABCAnne Heche sure loves 'em and leaves 'em. ET is reporting the Men in Trees star has left husband Coley Laffoon (with whom she has a son) for co-star James Tupper. Heche and Tupper's characters are romantically involved on the show.

But here's the problem with co-stars hooking up: they often eventually break up. And when they do, it sure causes havoc with TV storylines.

The OC: The French Connection

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Jan 12th 2007 10:16AM

A Season For Peaches(S04E10) You can tell that Josh Schwartz and his writing team are having fun with this season. They knew the show was going to be canceled well before we did. So it only makes sense that these remaining episodes feel fresh, like the writers are taking chances. Why wouldn't they? The show is over -- they can do whatever they want.

There are pros and cons to that though. Sometimes too much creative freedom can be a bad thing. Example one? I feel like Sandy and Kirsten have been forgotten. Especially Sandy. It seems that lately his only role has been popping in here and there to offer brief words of advice to Ryan. Although I will say that his Jerry Lewis impersonation was hilarious.

The OC: The Earth Girls Are Easy

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Dec 21st 2006 11:34PM

Taylor and Summer(S04E08) If this keeps up, the current season of The OC won't just rival the first -- it'll beat it. Everything that was great about this show in its debut season has returned. The writing is stronger than either of the middle seasons and it seems clear that Josh Schwartz and Co. are flexing their creative muscles fully knowing that this may be their last chance to do so. Seth's dry wit is in full force. The storylines are funny again (no more Marissa to bring it all down). But they're believable storylines too. And the relationships? I actually care about them again.

To illustrate what I'm saying, just look at this episode. It ripped a page right from the Alias playbook and gave us an opening scene only to jump back seven hours earlier. Before this season, I would have never expected to see something like that on The OC.

The OC: The Chrismukk-huh?

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Dec 15th 2006 8:33AM

Ryan and Taylor argue as they decorate for Chrismukkah.(S04E07) This was an interesting episode. It's not that I didn't like it, but I just found it a little disappointing. I say that because this episode didn't really do anything to advance the plot of our season. A season, I should remind you, that will only have 16 episodes and may very well be The OC's last. With that in mind, I guess I just expected Josh Schwartz and Co. to give us 16 jam-packed episodes. Up until now they had. This one was fun, it was gimmicky. But it didn't do it for me.

Centering around Ryan and Taylor, the two of them had been fighting about Taylor's "girlfriend status" and whether or not Ryan would be inviting her to Chrismukkah dinner. They were decorating the Cohen's house and in the heat their argument, Taylor tumbled off the ladder and Ryan fell off the roof trying to stop her. Now they're both in comas and when they wake up, nothing is as it seems.

What has happened to The O.C.?

by Anna Johns, posted Dec 5th 2006 10:24AM
the ocOver the weekend, the Wall Street Journal wrote an article pondering the demise of The O.C. It lost 26% of its audience when season two started up. Then 15% more disappeared (myself included) for season three. And, now in season four, The O.C. lost a whopping 39% of its crucial, age 18-49 viewers from last season. It's in so much trouble that the network has even launched an online effort to save the show. (Or gauge viewer interest)

Why?

The article includes a very frank interview with The O.C. creator, Josh Schwartz, who admits some mistakes. He says, opening up the series during season two to include storylines for the parents was too much to juggle. When it started to get stale, he killed off Caleb Nichol. Smart move, he says. But, he wonders whether it was such a hot idea to kill off Marissa Cooper's character at the end of last season.

Fox launches a campaign to 'Save The O.C.'

by Anna Johns, posted Dec 1st 2006 6:29PM
the ocIt's no secret that The O.C. is in trouble. It consistently ranks #4 up against tough competition on Thursday nights and it lost its star, Mischa Barton, at the end of last season. Now, Fox has taken the unusual step of launching its own campaign to save The O.C. from cancellation. There's a petition, or 'loyalty oath' on Fox's website. It doesn't directly say that The O.C. is in danger of cancelation, but it does say "not enough people out there have come back to Newport this season" and "good shows deserve to be watched." It asks visitors to sign a 'loyalty oath' that they will ignore all interruptions and watch The O.C. on Thursdays at nine. The whole thing is done a little tongue-in-cheek, but only a little. So far there are more than 71,000 'signatures' but that's probably not nearly enough to 'Save The O.C.', if it really does need saving.

The OC: The Sleeping Beauty

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Dec 1st 2006 11:44AM

Taylor needs Seth's help.(S04E05) Thus far this season has been great. So I went into this episode with high hopes, and don't get me wrong -- I liked it a lot. But it was just sort of so-so, right? Nothing too mind blowing happened, save for Summer's predicament, but even that was just kind of weird.

Everything that went on was just a little too obvious. Taylor falling for Ryan? We all knew it was coming. Of course, I support it though. She's better looking than Marissa, smarter, has less emotional baggage, and best of all? She's not a raging alcoholic. So yeah, I'm all for that and I hope it works out. But taking the entire episode to get to what we all knew was coming (the kiss) was just a waste of time if you ask me. It was cute I suppose. The Chinese tea didn't get Ryan to finally overcome his insomnia. Taylor did. Awww....

The OC: The Metamorphosis

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Nov 16th 2006 10:06PM

Chris Pratt and Adam Brody(S04E04) This is it! The episode I had been telling you all about. How incredibly cool was that opening sequence? Summer zooming through the grieving process, the classical music, the skewed camera angles, the on-screen text. Rachel Bilson really gave her character new life with this scene. I have a new found respect for Summer Roberts after seeing that. I don't even think The OC has tried taking on something like that before. It reminded me of something out of... well I don't know. But it was very un-OC and I loved it.

So as the title suggests, everyone and everything was changing in this episode. We're starting to get a better idea of how things are going to be post-Marissa and not everyone heads in the direction we might expect.

The OC: The Cold Turkey

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Nov 9th 2006 10:06PM

The OC(S04E03) We weren't supposed to get this episode until next week, but because of the season premiere's poor ratings and sweeps, FOX is giving us another new episode right on the tail of last night. So it might seem early for a Thanksgiving episode because well, it is. But that's OK because keeping with the season four trend, this was another spectacular installment. I really can't stress enough how impressed I've been with this season so far.

Plenty happened but the biggest news is that Volchok is back in Newport. This had to happen eventually. I just didn't expect it so soon. Although I suppose it makes sense after his little run in with Seth in Mexico. I think he actually feels guilty about his involvement with Marissa's death. Whatever. I hope they wrap this up soon because once everything tied to Marissa is cleared up, the show is only going to get better.

The OC: The Gringos

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Nov 8th 2006 10:04PM

Summer and Taylor(S04E02) After last week's outstanding season premiere, I had very high hopes for this episode. With last season still fresh in my mind, The OC did something I'm not entirely used to -- it delivered.

Picking up right where we left off, Ryan is dead set on finding Volchok and gutting him. It's all he wants, all he thinks about. It's great to have some serious moral conflict in this show instead of all the "Will Seth pick Anna or Summer" or "Uh oh, Marissa got drunk again" drivel that got fed to us last season. This is the side of Ryan we never fully saw. It's what left him the second he became a part of the Cohen family in the pilot episode. Well, newsflash. Ryan Atwood? Extreme badass.
