The Guys Stage a Reverse Intervention for Will Forte on 'The League' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 2nd 2011 6:30AM
'The League' - 'The Out of Towner'Pete's been in a bit of a dry spell of late on 'The League' (Thu., 10:30PM ET on FX), so he was more than thrilled that their old buddy Chuck (Will Forte) was coming back into town. Back in the day, his very disturbing antics with the single ladies allowed Pete to come in and smooth things over. It was a win-win!

But when Chuck showed up, he was disturbingly with a chip commemorating his sobriety. This simply won't do, so the boys tried to stage a reverse-intervention to convince him to drink. Chuck was strong, but no one was strong enough later when Andre accidentally used cocaine instead of confectioners sugar to rim the glasses for drinks later.

Will Forte Teaches Chris the 'Flex' to Sex Up His Marriage on 'Up All Night' (VIDEO)

'Up All Night' - 'Working Late and Working It'This week's 'Up All Night' (Wed., 8PM ET on NBC) explored a truth that new parents generally discover quite abruptly one day. They've stopped caring about how they look around the house ... and sometimes in public, too.

This tends to be more difficult for the men to handle, which is why Chris wound up reaching out to a fellow new father, played by Will Forte, for advice. Reed (Forte) agrees to come over to teach Chris a few tricks to get Reagan to make more of an effort.

The idea is for Chris to sex up his image a bit, which Reed showed him has a lot to do with your clothing, and especially your underwear. While showing off his "sexy" briefs, he let Chris in on the power of the glute flex, which lifts and adds volume to your rear-end.

Amy Sedaris Models Weekender Pants and Goes Crazy on 'Late Night' (VIDEO)

Will Forte & Amy Sedaris, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Amy Sedaris pulled on a pair of Weekender pants and all bets were off on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:30AM ET on NBC). What happened next genuinely defies description, as she displayed moves and flexibility that had Jimmy Fallon falling off his chair with laughter.

Even comedian Will Forte, on the couch, had no idea how to react or what to do. Everything felt so completely inappropriate, and yet it really wasn't. What Sedaris was doing, though, was showing us the stretch, comfort and versatility of the pants.

"These work because they have an inside pant," she said striking a pose. "You know what I mean? So you wear them all weekend."

'Saturday Night Live' - 'Gabourey Sidibe/MGMT' Recap

by Annie Wu, posted Apr 25th 2010 3:00PM
(S35E20) Like most of the public, I only knew Gabourey Sidibe from 'Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire' (Okay, seriously, if we're gonna do that, can we put it on the end of every movie adaptation of a novel? 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, based on the novel 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban' by JK Rowling). It was one of those movies that I wasn't sure if I wanted to even watch because just looking at Sidibe in the trailers made me uncomfortable.

'Saturday Night Live' - 'Ryan Phillippe/Ke$Ha' Recap

All in all, a pretty mediocre episode. Ryan Phillippe didn't seem to stretch himself in any way. Well, okay, okay, he dressed up as a chick for a sketch, but apart from that, there was no palpable attempt to celebrate the fact that Ryan Phillippe was hosting or play to his strengths. I mean, I won't pretend I know what those particular strengths are, but 'Saturday Night Live' usually does a fair job of letting hosts try something dramatically out of their comfort zone or play up something unexpected. There was no sense of that in this episode.

Maybe they wanted to keep the episode toned down to counter whatever amount of crazy Ke$Ha wanted to unleash. By the way, that girl looks like she perpetually smells like drugstore watermelon body spray and BO. If that's the look she's going for, she's really nailing it.

Watch the 'MacGruber' Restricted Trailer

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 2nd 2010 3:00PM
Will Forte is MacGruberThe 'MacGruber' movie may be nearly two months away from hitting the big screen -- it arrives in theaters May 21 -- but that hasn't prevented a full-out marketing blitz. There's a new NSFW trailer of the 'SNL' adaption, which you can watch after the jump.

We get to see MacGruber (Will Forte) putting together his team to fight the so-called world's most dangerous man (Val Kilmer), along with Kristen Wiig as a master of disguise.

If the trailer is any indication, 'MacGruber' is going to be a slapstick festival of double-entendres (if you're looking for subtle, move on). Probably a good excuse to turn your head off for an hour and a half and sit in an air-conditioned room on a hot spring day.

'Saturday Night Live' - 'Jude Law/Pearl Jam' Recap

Congratulations, Jude Law. That was a solid episode all around and a fine return to the 'Saturday Night Live' stage. And despite the fact that Pearl Jam was virtually unrecognizable to any ears that haven't heard them since the early-'90s, at least Law's musical guest didn't have any reason to do an awkward hoedown during a career-crippling blunder.

Cold Open: Of course they had to talk about this. Of course. Now, if you haven't read up on the incredibly weird Eric Massa story, it probably would have seemed like 'SNL' was just making up most of it. Unfortunately, they weren't. Maybe that's why they felt that ridiculously long intro was necessary? Anyway, the treatment of this topic was all right, though the absolute best part was Bobby Moynihan as Massa, attempting stealth snorkeling on Andy Samberg (the weak distraction was especially nice). And no, sorry, you can't unsee it.

'Saturday Night Live' - 'Zach Galifianakis/Vampire Weekend' Recap

zach galifianakis vampire weekend
(S35E16) This was definitely one of the weirder installments of 'Saturday Night Live' in a while, but for fans of Zach Galifianakis, it was a real treat. It's very rare that the entire tone of the evening so perfectly fits the host. A lot of hosts, be they athletes or singers or professional actors, use 'SNL' as a platform for showcasing other talents that they have (or think they have) and that can often lead to strange, near unwatchable territory.

Galifianakis knows where's his strong points are and confidently played those up all through the episode. He is not at his best with cue card-heavy parts, but rather when he forces the audience to bask in his glorious, beardy, unsettling presence. So we got a lot of that. A lot. Response to this episode will probably be highly divided (well, more so than other weeks) but, speaking as a long-time fan of Galifianakis, it worked.

MacGruber! His Movie's Pushed Back to May Because of Scheduling Conflicts! MacGruber!

Will Forte as MacGruberThat ticking countdown clock that has been a device of countless action explosion movies has just gotten a few more minutes on the clock. Don't you just love it when life imitates art?

The big screen 'MacGruber' movie, based on the popular 'SNL' sketch, has earned a later release date due to scheduling conflicts with other Warner Bros. properties.

The movie, directed by 'Lonely Island' member and 'SNL' writer Jorma Taccone, will hit a theater near you on May 21 instead of April 9.

'Saturday Night Live' - 'Jennifer Lopez' Recap

Someone at NBC or 'Saturday Night Live' sensed that you haven't thought about the music of Jennifer Lopez (no one calls her J. Lo anymore, right?) in about ten years, and in an effort to get "Waiting for Tonight" stuck in your head again, they brought her back. It was supposed to be some sort of double-whammy, a way for Lopez to promote her upcoming film, 'The Back-up Plan,' and her new album at the same time.

But then her label dropped her about a week ago and all ten people that were paying attention simultaneously tugged at their collars and went, "Ooh, awkward." These same people sat through her musical performances during this episode and, mid-cringe, mumbled, "Well, y'know. Bless her heart for trying."

Review: 'Saturday Night Live' - Ashton Kutcher/Them Crooked Vultures

There was a different tone to this episode. The writing was a bit more ambitious than usual, going out on a limb a few times to tackle an idea that would require a little more work to get the laugh. It was admirable, sure, but a lot of the sketches still fell flat this week. It was strange. I also realize it's extra-weird if one considers my review of Ashton Kutcher's last stint on 'Saturday Night Live', in which I pondered out loud about whether or not he and the writers could have afforded to get a little wackier.

Kutcher's enthusiasm was nice to watch but the episode really felt mediocre. Maybe the low end of mediocre. Is that even a thing? Well, it is now.

Review: Saturday Night Live - Jon Hamm/Michael Bublé

Hamm and Buble
(S35E13) The first time Jon Hamm hosted Saturday Night LIve, back in 2008, it was before I had seen his work on Mad Men and 30 Rock (the latter was due to the fact his guest appearances didn't exist at the time). I was super-excited that the seemingly perpetually serious Hamm actually turned out to be hilarious, and his performance led to one of the best episodes of the entire season. Taking all this into consideration, I was walking on dangerous ground as I prepared to watch Hamm's return to the SNL stage.

Were my expectations too high to be met? Did Hamm's pre-SNL beard somehow take funny away from him (I've heard beards can sometimes do that)? As it turned out, I had absolutely nothing to worry about. Hamm did yet another stellar job as host, bringing a level of charm and commitment that made just about every sketch work.

Review: Saturday Night Live - Sigourney Weaver/The Ting Tings

First of all, Sigourney Weaver looks incredible. Believe it or not, she turns 61 this year, so that's something to think about as we slowly weep into our young but round, Cheetos-stained fingers. Secondly, Weaver managed to play a variety of characters that explored a wide range of wackiness, all without humiliating herself (it was a dangerous moment during that "Fifty and Freaky" sketch but we all knew Weaver's still a classy lady).

The writing was pretty consistent and suited Weaver well, and it was fun to see her do so many goofy things. It's not often Saturday Night Live brings in someone that of her status. Let's be honest here.
