Danny McBrideLooks like Kenny Powers will be riding into the sunset sooner than we thought.

'Eastbound & Down' star Danny McBride and co-creator Jody Hill told the audience at the show's PaleyFest 2011 panel yesterday that they don't foresee anything past a third season for the show, Entertainment Weekly reports.

"We never really had an interest in turning the show into anything traditional," McBride said. "We approach each season like it's one long movie."

Season 3, which McBride and Hill are writing right now, will most likely air in 2012.

Steve Carell and Tina Fey's Kissing Technique in 'Date Night' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Apr 8th 2010 1:00PM
According to Steve Carell, his kissing scenes with Tina Fey in the movie 'Date Night' were anything but romantic. Instead, Carell and Fey kissed with their mouths tightly closed, and even whispered acting directions to each other while locking lips, he said on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated).

"There were no tongues involved. No tongues were injured," Carell said of his technique while kissing Fey. "We did a four-and-a-half minute kiss for the end credits, and, so, we were, like, whispering things to each other ... [like], 'Okay, lie down. Now, roll over.'"

Yes, Virginia, that is Stephen Colbert kissing a dude

Stephen Colbert kissing a dudeThere is nothing wrong with your computer. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. Stop rolling your eyes because we're ripping off The Outer Limits.

You are seeing that picture correctly: hardcore conservative TV guy Stephen Colbert is totally Frenching a guy. This probably begs a key question: why? Is this a screenshot from one of Glenn Beck's secret dreams? Is he trying to breathe life back into a man who has passed out while standing? Is this his way of destroying the possibility of gay marriage by participating in it?

It's actually part of a Second City show in Chicago. Alum Colbert, pictured here with actor Dave Razowsky, appeared at the famed theater over the weekend to celebrate the theater's 50th anniversary along with fellow alumni Steve Carrell, Bonnie Hunt and Harold Ramis. It is not known if Colbert kissed them too.

Review: The Office - The Lover

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Oct 23rd 2009 1:03AM
The cast of NBC's 'The Office.'
(S06E07) "You know, I really would have appreciated a heads up that you were into dating mothers. I would have introduced you to mine." - Dwight

Ahh, that's more like it. After last week's garbage episode, "Mafia," The Office seems to be back on track by exploring two of the best plots the show has had in quite some time. Jim and Pam's wedding is obviously still the high-water mark, and it will probably continue to be that way for quite some time, but "The Lover" was certainly a step in the right direction.

What to Watch This Week: September 14-21

by Stephanie Earp, posted Sep 14th 2009 4:45PM

This Thursday, 'The Office' is back with season 6. (8 PM ET, Global/NBC)

Last season was a bit of mixed bag - with the Jim and Pam romance resolved, the show was forced to look elsewhere for longer plot arcs. The Dwight-Angela-Andy love triangle was good for a few awkward laughs, but didn't offer the same vicarious thrill. Can season 6 bring the show back on track?

The Office: Goodbye, Toby (season finale) - VIDEO

by Jay Black, posted May 16th 2008 1:19AM
The Office: Goodbye Toby(S04E14) I performed tonight in Hartford, CT. Coming out of the comedy club, a woman who wasn't at the show checked me out. I heard her say helloooooo in a guttural way, like I was a really good looking guy. A few seconds later, though, once she got a better look at me, she said, "Never mind." Then, she and her friends laughed for as long as I could hear them.

Apparently, I'm only good looking when someone is looking at me out of the corner of her eye.

I bring this up not to inform you that I'm unattractive -- my blogger profile photo does a better job of informing you of that than I ever could -- but rather because I didn't think I could be any more depressed than I was after that comment. I honestly thought their derisive laughter was going to be the low-point of my evening. Then I watched tonight's Office finale...

The Office: Job Fair - VIDEO

by Jay Black, posted May 9th 2008 2:22AM
Sorry this isn't an awesome picture from the episode, but my boys at NBC let me down this week with promo pictures!(S04E13) Remember that movie The Chase? Okay, you probably don't, but believe me, it exists [link NSFW]. Anyway, Charlie Sheen takes Kristy Swanson hostage, and over the course of the movie some major league Stockholm Syndrome kicks in (like, really major league: they do it while he's leading the cops on a high speed chase). The lesson of the movie is obvious: if you kidnap the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer, she'll eventually fall in love with you.

I bring this up because I'm becoming scared that I might have lost perspective on The Office. I've sincerely loved every episode that has aired since its return from the break. Now, here's the question: is this because the writers spent the entire strike doing brain push-ups? Or is it because The Office is Charlie Sheen to my Kristy Swanson? My (glowing) review after the jump...

The Office: Chairmodel - VIDEO

Kevin(S04E10) Hey Pam will you... wait for me one second while I tie my shoe?

For everything that happened this week -- a return to form for those of you who were upset that the previous two episodes strayed from the confines of Dunder-Mifflin -- I believe it's that question (and Pam's reaction to it) that will set up the conflict over the remaining episodes of the season. I'm about as good at reading female facial signals as Rain Man, but even I could tell that Pam's face during the "proposal" wasn't exactly filled with the kind of joy you'd expect it would be. Maybe the producers are just giving us a red herring and Pam's reaction tonight will be the equivalent of Lost's four-toed statue (interesting for a blip, then forgotten about) or maybe things are not all that well in JAM-land.

But, I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's talk about the rest of the episode first...

The Office: Dinner Party - VIDEO

The Office: Dinner Party(S04E09) It feels really good to be back, doesn't it? My calculations might be a bit off, but it seems to me the amount of time we had off for the writer's strike was about the same as what we usually have off for a summer break. For some reason, though, it felt longer. Something about the cold winter months makes me long for the sweet siren song of Scranton, I suppose.

I wasn't there when we won WWII, but I imagine the joy I felt when a new Office showed up in my TiVo was similar to what it felt like on V.E. day. I almost wanted to dress up in a sailor uniform and give Steve Carell a long, deep kiss in Times Square (though, to be fair, I almost always feel that way). I was happy The Office was back, the only thing I worried about was whether it'd still be good...

Comic-Con: Warner Bros. Panel Report

by Julia Ward, posted Jul 27th 2007 3:14PM
Rock and Carrell at Comic-Con

Friday at Comic-Con got underway with the Warner Brothers presentation. The swag bag included a Get Smart t-shirt with "KAOS" written on one side and "CONTROL" on the other. Not so surprisingly, no one under the age of 20 seemed to know what this meant, but Warner Brothers needn't worry because the kids love The Rock. And, because this is Comic-Con, The Rock (Agent 23) put in an appearance along with his Get Smart co-stars Steve Carrell, Masi "unofficial Comic-Con poster boy" Oka, Studio 60's Nate Torrence and Borat's Ken Davitian mercifully wearing pants.

Office fans go Wikipedia happy

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 12th 2007 4:19PM

The OfficeFirst Stephen Colbert, now The Office.

On a recent episode of the NBC comedy, boss Michael Scott (Steve Carell) went to Wikipedia for tips on how to fire one of his employees. So fans of the show have, naturally, gone to the site and started to edit the entry on negotiations like crazy. Because, as Michael put it (I'm paraphrasing here, don't remember the exact quote), "having a bunch of people edit a web site is best way to get accurate information."

Was last night's episode of The Office really supersized?

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 6th 2007 2:21PM

The OfficeFirst off, it was a great episode. Dwight shooting Roy in the eyes, all the Toby/Michael stuff (Toby is truly one of the great characters on TV right now), and Ed Helms returning at the end (which I didn't see coming) were all really funny moments. But I'm wondering: was the show really "supersized?"

Oh, I know it was longer. It started at 8pm and got over at 8:40, so it was longer in length, but didn't it seem like there were more commercials than usual? And what about that 4 minute long commercial for 30 Rock? Sure, they increase the length of the episode by 10 minutes, but 4 of those minutes are for an extended promo for another one of NBC's shows? It seemed to be shoved in there and was rather distracting.
