'Community' Is Hiring! Filling the Greendale Yearbook with More Awesome Human Beings

by AOL TV Staff, posted Jul 28th 2011 11:00AM
It's been a busy week for the casting directors of 'Community.' Greendale Community College is in hiring mode, and the faculty is freshly stocked with two new, sufficiently awesome (and yes, a little random) teachers: Michael K. Williams, coming on board to play a fresh-out-of-jail biology professor, and John Goodman, the new vice dean of the school of air conditioning repair.

While neither actor seems quite perfect, tonally, for the offbeat, referential comedy, the choices may prove brilliant for that very same reason.

With that in mind, we got to thinking about some other slightly plausible, square-peg-in-round-hole teacher choices that might just be crazy enough to work.

Even if they don't take any of our casting advice, that faculty lunchroom is about to get even weirder, in the best way possible.

Eli Roth on Being Stung by Sea Urchins (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Feb 19th 2010 10:30AM
Actor/director Eli Roth appeared on 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 11PM ET on E!) and discussed his recent vacation in Mexico, during which his kayak sank in the ocean, stranding him on a bed of stinging sea urchins.

According to Roth, he was stung approximately 200 times, and having the needles removed from his feet rivaled the kind of torture depicted in his 'Hostel' movies. However, Quentin Tarantino kindly provided him with a cure involving alcohol and other substances.

Watch the video after the jump.

Carradine's death was probably not a suicide

by Joel Keller, posted Jun 5th 2009 1:05PM
Tarantino and Madsen talking about Keith Carradine on Larry KingWhen I heard that David Carradine was found hanging from a closet in his hotel room yesterday, one of the first things I thought was, "Huh. He doesn't seem like the kind of guy who would commit suicide." He just seemed like one of those full-of-life guys that wanted to experience all he could before he checked out. I even wondered aloud to my fiancee if he died doing something... else, using the rumored cause of death of INXS' Michael Hutchence as a reference.

I guess I wasn't far off. Now Thai police are speculating that Carradine may have accidentally died during a "sex game gone wrong," according to The Washington Post. This is after his manager, who was on Larry King Live last night, his friends and family, and his colleagues all agreed that there was no way Carradine was suicidal.

What do you think about a CSI feature film?

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 21st 2009 1:24PM
Grissom in blueAre you ready for more CSI? I mean, there's original CSI, CSI: Miami, CSI: New York, NCIS (which isn't part of the franchise, but has the letters), plus all these shows are in reruns and now, William Petersen is ready for a big screen CSI. He's downright positive about it, even though he himself exited the TV show last December. I don't know if a movie version of CSI is really necessary, but to hear Petersen talk, there are some valid reasons.

For his point of view, some stories couldn't be shown on TV because of the graphic or sexual content. He'd like to see a movie version go where no TV CSI has gone before.

Weirdest kid show appearances

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 5th 2008 11:23AM
ElmoSomeone out there has taken the time to compose a list of the weirdest celebrities to appear on a kid's show. The guests include Amy Sedaris, Quentin Tarantino, Larry David and George Carlin.

The common theme of the list is that actors who usually appear in adult shows or using adult humor are appearing on children's television where it is unlikely they will be recognized by the average viewer. Frankly, I doubt most kids recognize most celebrities when presented in front of them no matter what they've appeared in unless it's on The Disney Channel or Nickelodeon.

I think the point of appearing on these shows is greater visibility for the actor. That way, the kids might recognize them when they're older and discover comic gold like Strangers With Candy or Curb Your Enthusiasm.
