Reno 911

Kelly Ripa Embarrasses Zac Efron With Photo of His 'Reno 911' Halloween Costume (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Dec 7th 2011 6:40PM
Zac Efron stopped by 'Live!' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) to hang out with Kelly and her guest-host du jour, Josh Groban. As Groban ribbed him about his selection as one of People Magazine's Sexiest Men of 2011, Kelly flipped over a card to reveal a photo of Efron, but it wasn't the one featured in the magazine.

"Aw, that's not it," Efron groaned, as Kelly held up a shot of him with a mustache, cop sunglasses and hilariously tight shorts. "I did 'Seventeen Again' with Tom Lennon, who was big on 'Reno 911,' he played Lt. Dangle," Efron explained. "I didn't have a Halloween costume so I called up my boy and I said, 'Hey man, so you still have your old costume?' he said 'Yeah, man, I have the whole thing.'"

Is 'Reno 911!' Making a Comeback?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Oct 7th 2011 6:15AM
'Reno 911' Season 1 castTime to dust off those tight shorts and polish your nightstick: Jim Dangle and the crew could be coming back!

Hot on the heels of a possible 'Arrested Development' revival, we hear that 'Cops' parody 'Reno 911!' could also be in line for resurrection.

According to Vulture, Netflix and the show's producers are in talks about producing new episodes. But don't get too excited: There are a lot of obstacles to get past before it could become reality.

But just how great would it be if it actually happened? And is there a full-on Noughties revival building in the world of TV?

There's a Porn Version of 'Reno 911!' ... for Some Reason (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Jul 27th 2010 9:00PM
There's a Porn Version of 'Reno 911!' ... for Some ReasonWhat would it be like to see a gigantic pornographic image of yourself on the big screen? That's the question facing the stars of 'Reno 911!' Because as it turns out, there is a porn version of the now-canceled comedy show. Why is there a porn version? How could that possibly be sexy? Your guesses are as good as ours.

The porno version is called 'Reno 911: A XXX Parody.' (Clever title!) And actual 'Reno' star Thomas Lennon went to see the adult movie. The celebrity news show 'TMZ' (weekdays, syndicated) has the full scoop.

Lennon checked out the film, and got to see the porn version of himself. And apparently, Lennon's porno doppelganger is a little more well-endowed that he is. "I'm talking about -- honestly -- a foot," Lennon said, while spreading his hands to indicate the size of the man's, um, tool.

Straight Actors, Gay Characters: Our Faves

by Liane Bonin, posted Nov 2nd 2009 7:30PM
It's a good (or at least a slightly better) year to play gay on prime time TV, according to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).

Eighteen regular characters on scripted TV are either gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, an increase of 2.6 percent over last season. Of course, not every character that is gay is played by someone who is. Here's a look at some of the straight guys who aren't afraid to play against personal preference and buck musty old stereotypes at the same time.

Reno 911 creators producing new comedy for NBC

by Mike Moody, posted Oct 14th 2009 4:00PM
homas lennon ben garrantIt's great to see members of The State getting their due in Hollywood.

Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, founding members of the sketch comedy troupe, have been cracking me up since the early '90s when the State had its own sketch comedy show on MTV. They've been very productive since The State was canceled in 1995, starring and producing Comedy Central's hilarious Reno 911 and writing a number of films, including Night at the Museum and Balls of Fury. Now, the duo is bringing their twisted brand of comedy to NBC.

Lennon and Garant will write, produce and star in a new multicamera comedy for the network, says The Hollywood Reporter. The show is part of a talent deal NBC and Universal inked with Lennon.

NBC Dials Up 'Reno 911!' Writers

by Michael D. Ayers, posted Oct 13th 2009 2:03PM
Reno 911Sound the alarm: According to the Hollywood Reporter, NBC has tapped 'Reno 911!' co-creators Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant to spearhead a new comedy project for the network. The two will act on-screen and serve as executive producers.

Lennon and Garant both have considerable writing experience -- for the big screen, they recently penned both 'Night at the Museum' films. At the same time, they've enjoyed cult success as actors beginning with MTV's 'The State,' a sketch comedy show based on the comedy troupe they formed (which formed the basis of 'the 'Reno 911!' ensemble cast).

A second look at Reno 911!, season six

by Nick Zaino, posted Jul 9th 2009 2:04PM
Reno 911!When I first wrote about the cast changes for season six of Reno 911!, a few readers were disappointed that their favorite deputies were killed in a tragic taco stand explosion. Clementine (Wendi McLendon-Covey), Garcia (Carlos Alazraqui), and Kimball (Mary Birdsong) all died, and were replaced this season with Deputy Frank Rizzo (Joe Lo Truglio) and Sergeant Jack Declan (Ian Roberts).

Clementine and Garcia were both part of the show since the beginning, and were often the most appealing characters on the show. The racial tension between Garcia and Deputy Jones (Cedric Yarbrough) was a fun plotline, and Clementine's undercover pot bust at a head shop was one of my favorite scenes. Kimball came aboard in season three, and had her adherents, as well.
