Seth Rogen Plays Porn Director Dirty Randy on 'The League' (VIDEO)

Seth Rogen, 'The League'Andre was definitely made to suffer even beyond what he did in the off-season by the end of this season premiere of 'The League' (Thu., 10:30PM ET on FX). The oft-mentioned but never seen Dirty Randy finally made an appearance, and he bears an eery resemblance to Seth Rogen with a sweet handlebar mustache.

For the final punishment for coming in last the prior season, the gang decided to have Dirty Randy shoot a porn film in Andre's apartment. He had plenty of credentials, including a foul version of 'Schindler's List,' though we almost wish we didn't know his reason for the "artful" decision to film it in black-and-white.

Stewart Talks About Seth Rogen's Film Premiering During Rosh Hashanah (VIDEO)

Seth Rogen, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Apparently, Jon Stewart felt he needed to spread the guilt a bit with guest Seth Rogen on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). According to him, he got a disapproving reaction from an audience member when he told her he had no plans for Rosh Hashanah, or the Jewish New Year.

This year, it will run from sunset Thursday, September 28 through nightfall on Saturday, September 30. Right smack in the middle of that is when Rogen's new film, '50/50' premieres.

"Are other people's Jewish mothers giving you a problem for that?" Stewart asked Rogen. He then turned to the woman who'd seemed disappointed in his lack of plans and asked her, "Are you bummed out at him for this?"

Seth Rogen Respects 'Jersey Shore' Cast for Risking Their Lives (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 27th 2011 3:30AM
Seth Rogen, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Seth Rogen got to experience partying with the cast of 'Jersey Shore' and he lived to talk about it on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS). There he admitted that the experience gave him a respect for what they do.

"I respect them like I respect a stunt man, like a rodeo clown or something like that," he explained. "Because they are putting themselves in physical danger for our entertainment."

He cited the excessive drinking of things no one should consume and the excessive bedding of things no one should bed. That puts them at risk for diseases and alcohol poisoning, and they do it all for us. Kind of puts what they do on that show in a whole new light, doesn't it?

Seth Rogen, Andy Cohen and Hoda Discuss Kim Delaney's Rambling Speech (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 26th 2011 4:30PM
'Today' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) gathered Seth Rogen, Andy Cohen and Hoda Kotb to discuss the possible causes of 'Army Wives' star Kim Delaney's rambling Liberty Medal Award Ceremony speech. The actress was supposed to be introducing former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, but got yanked off the stage after slurring her words and appearing to be drunk.

The group kicked around a few different theories about her discombobulation. The first was a teleprompter malfunction, something that could disrupt even the most seasoned public speakers. The most likely cause, clearly, is booze, as Delaney has struggled with drug and alcohol abuse in the past. A third possibility was that she may have had some kind of stroke, like CBS reporter Serene Branson suffered on-air in February, but we don't think that's too likely.

Rogen combined two schools of thought to put a nice bow on the segment. "Every time I can't read a teleprompter I get really drunk," he joked.

Steve Martin Crashes Alec Baldwin's Record-Setting 'SNL' Hosting Stint (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 26th 2011 3:00AM
Alec Baldwin & Steve Martin, 'Saturday Night Live'When it was realized that Alec Baldwin hosting this season premiere of 'Saturday Night Live' (Sat., 11:30PM ET on NBC) would give him the all-time hosting record over Steve Martin, we all assumed that Martin would make an appearance. The question was how and when.

Well, he showed up right away, during Baldwin's monologue touting his 16th time hosting. Martin was surprisingly gracious, and only wanted to make sure Baldwin wasn't using any performance enhancing drugs.

So they staged a fake drug test, with Martin analyzing Baldwin's urine by swishing it in his mouth -- he only detected Cialis. It was a fun bit, but much tamer than perhaps we would have expected. No jealousy or bitterness from Martin? We did, however, love when he asked surprise guest Seth Rogen if his being there counted as hosting. It doesn't.

Deena Cortese of 'Jersey Shore' on 'Good Day LA'Deena Cortese said Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards ceremony was "the best night of my life" on 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox). She got to meet a lot of celebrities, and found they were fans of hers, and 'Jersey Shore.'

Deena was most thrilled with meeting Lady Gaga, which almost made her cry. "Never in my life I thought that Neo, Beyonce, like, Lady Gaga, Pippa," she said, "like, they would come up and like say they watch us. Seth, like, Rogen, like, Jonah Hill's like, it was insane, and I was just like Jersey Turnpiking Seth Rogen. Like, it was amazing."

Gone Too Soon: 'Freaks and Geeks'

Freaks and Geeks
Created by Paul Feig and produced by Judd Apatow, 'Freaks and Geeks' is one of those rare television treasures that no one saw or appreciated until it was too late. Okay, that's unfair. Critics, the press and the loyal fans who did find the show on NBC immediately knew that it was something special. Unfortunately, it didn't find wide enough appeal to last beyond its first season.

Ironically, the show's cast of virtual unknowns now reads like an all-star comedy troupe, which is a testament to the brilliant casting that went on behind the scenes of the show. Finding such talented kids, and then coupling them with brilliant writing crafted on of the most revered television shows of all time.

Could Rich Sommer be Ugly Betty's new man?

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 17th 2010 1:01PM
rich_sommer_glassesOh, dear Betty, where is the love? I'm speaking of ABC's Ugly Betty, naturally. Despite the braces, the red glasses and the questionable fashion sense, the vivacious Betty Suarez remains a popular date. I can think of only one time this past season when she was dancing with herself, and that was by choice.

Well, after Betty's on-again, off-again thing with Matt turned into a very much an "on" thing -- and a clingy one at that -- last week saw Matt making a decision that definitely puts the romance on hold.

What's next for Betty? Apparently one of the Mad Men. In March, Mad Men actor Rich Sommer will appear on Ugly Betty in a guest role. He'll be playing a Seth Rogen type -- that's code for schlubby, nice guy -- who asks Betty out.

TLC Picks Up 'Mall Cops: Mall of America'

by Michael D. Ayers, posted Nov 23rd 2009 1:34PM
Mall Cops: Mall of AmericaEver have the sensation that you'd like to go to the mall but just don't feel like getting up off that cozy couch?

TLC is making that possible with the announcement of their new series, 'Mall Cops: Mall of America,' Variety is reporting.

The show stems from a one-hour special of the same name that aired on Oct. 15, garnering 1.2 million viewers. The series promises to look at the men and women who work security at the Mall of America based in Bloomington, Minn., the largest mall in North America. 12 half-hour episodes have been ordered.

In a statement from TLC, the mall is said to be like a "mini-city," due to the 500 stores, theme park, wedding chapel, school and aquarium that exist within the mall's confines. Such a city needs lots of protection, apparently.

Mall Cops coming to TV

by Brad Trechak, posted Nov 23rd 2009 9:29AM

Paul Blart Mall CopI am sorry to report that Kevin James in Paul Blart: Mall Cop and Seth Rogen in Observe and Report have started a phenomenon, because a new reality series called Mall Cops: Mall of America is coming to TLC. This is what happens when two movies that are superficially related to each other get released in close chronological proximity.

Granted, the Mall of America is one of the biggest (if not the biggest) malls in America and there is likely more than a fair share of crimes that go on there during any given day. I just wonder if the show is going to hire its own criminals to commit felonies in the mall just to keep things interesting.

I can see it now: the season deals with standard problems like shoplifters and lost children until the season finale which ends in a hostage situation cliffhanger. Want to see the footage of how it turns out? Wait until season two.

Which CBS Show Should Get the Post-Super Bowl Slot? (Team 'How I Met Your Mother'!)

by Chris O'Connell, posted Nov 13th 2009 12:25PM
How I Met Your MotherCBS has an important decision to make: Which of their programs will follow the Super Bowl in an effort to grab the incredibly high ratings that the NFL championship game inevitably gets every year?

Does the network choose a comedy, like NBC would do with 'Friends' after Super Bowl XXX, one that featured guest stars like Brooke Shields, Chris Isaak, Jean-Claude Van Damme and more? Or does CBS do what Fox did after Super Bowl XLII -- aka the greatest Super Bowl ever, featuring the New York Giants upsetting the undefeated Patriots -- and air an hour-long drama like 'House'?

Whatever CBS decides, we implore them not to complete the trifecta and air a third post-Super Bowl episode of Survivor. It's time for some fresh blood.

Seth Rogen is back as B.O.B. for Monsters vs Aliens Halloween special

Seth Rogen from Monsters vs Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer SpaceSeth Rogen has always enjoyed Halloween specials, from the TGIF line-up when he was a kid up to The Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror. Tonight, he'll be in his own Halloween special, Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space (NBC, 8 PM), based on the Dreamworks animated feature Monsters vs Aliens.

"I was a nerd and had nothing to do on Friday nights," Rogen says of the TGIF line-up during a conference call with press. "Whenever like the sitcoms would do their Halloween episode, I always enjoyed that for some reason. That always spawned some good comedy."

Executive producer Al Jean talks about 20 years of The Simpsons

by Nick Zaino, posted Sep 25th 2009 11:05AM
Al Jean The SimpsonsAl Jean started out with The Simpsons 20 years ago as a writer working a couple of days a week. He was there when the series started, and even before it was officially a series, working on the Christmas show in 1989, when The Simpsons first broke away from its beginnings on The Tracey Ullman Show.

Now he's an executive producer and showrunner, staring down the twentieth anniversary of the official start of the series, which happens in January. I spoke with him this week about this Sunday's season premiere, a bit of Simpsons history, and just how long the Simpsons can keep making people laugh.

After 20 years of doing The Simpsons, how do you find something new to do with the show? How do you generate ideas you haven't done before?

Well, it's the best of both worlds. If something happens to you in your life or to the world, you can satirize it but you get to use these characters that people love and that you're very familiar with. To me, there's a lot of topics that are fresh and interesting.

Cinematical, TV Squad's detached fraternal siamese twin, also at Comic-Con

Even though TV Squad's very own John Scott Lewinski is fighting his way through hordes of overweight Rorschachs and pre-pubescent Chun Lis to get exclusive interviews and scoops on the newest TV news at the San Diego Comic Con, don't forget that our partners-in-crime from Cinematical are also there covering the latest flim-flam in film.

The movie side of the annual pop-culture cavalcade opened with one of the biggest names in the history of film and what could very well be one of the biggest names in the future of film. Director James Cameron screened a solid 25 minutes of his forthcoming sci-fi epic Avatar. Blogger Todd Gilchrist got a hint of the plot and special effects movie-goers can expect when the film hits theaters later this year and said it "promises to be both hugely entertaining and technically groundbreaking." Man, that's got me worried. That's what they also said about Titanic.
