All Of Your Favorite Actresses Star in This New Funny Or Die Video

by Chris Harnick, posted Dec 6th 2011 12:30PM
Funny or Die Home for ActressesMegan Mullally, Lake Bell, Lizzy Caplan, Casey Wilson, Aubrey Plaza, Ellie Kemper and Michaela Watkins have teamed up for a new Funny Or Die video, 'Home for Actresses.' See, we weren't kidding with that headline.

In the new video, Mullally plays Peggy Dvorak, the owner/headmistress of an institute that acts as an "in-patient" facility for actresses to learn how to be cooler. As if the likes of Plaza, Wilson and Caplan needed help getting cooler.

She's not teaching acting, because "acting can't be taught," no, Peggy teaches these very funny ladies "how to be cool." From fashion tips to dating do's and don'ts -- date a guy with a drug problem -- Peggy has advice for all situations.

Check out the video below.

Whitney Cummings Sent Casey Wilson to Her Psychic (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 6th 2011 5:00AM
Casey Wilson, 'Chelsea Lately'According to Chelsea Handler, Whitney Cummings doesn't have many friends. But two of them sat together on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!), when Casey Wilson sat down with Handler.

Wilson then talked about the psychic experience she had when she went to a psychic on the recommendation of Cummings. She described a bizarre experience then, with the psychic flirting and talking to various spirits as if it was a joke. But by the end, she had made a sobbing true believer out of Wilson.

It didn't last, though, as it seemed Wilson gained a little skepticism when she left. "I walk out front and my car has been towed," she said. "I'm like, Could she have told me that?"

Exclusive: Megan Mullally and Casey Wilson Tease 'Happy Endings' Mother-Daughter Musical Number (VIDEO)

by Laura Prudom, posted Oct 11th 2011 11:35AM
Casey Wilson and Megan MullallyEvery now and then, a show pulls off a piece of familial casting so genius, so unavoidably obvious, that you may actually forget that the actors aren't related while you're watching. Such is the case with this week's 'Happy Endings,' which sees comedic whirlwind Megan Mullally guest star as Casey Wilson's perky mom, Dana.

"I say we're like the 'Gilmore Girls,' but we're better because we came first," Wilson enthused when a group of journalists caught up with her and Mullally on set.

"They wrote me a really amazing part," Mullally said. "She is just a very optimistic lady. And when Penny was a kid, they used to have a singing duo called 'Two Hartz Beat as One.'"

The mom and daughter double-act is an integral part of the episode, leading up to a musical number that ... may not exactly put 'Glee' to shame, but will almost certainly leave you crying with laughter. Not only was AOL TV on hand while Mullally was filming, we also scored an exclusive preview of the ladies strutting their vocal stuff to whet your appetite for the real thing. We don't think we're being hyperbolic when we say that it's entirely a-mah-zing.

'Happy Endings' Cast Talks Season 2, Quotables & Dream Guest Stars

by Maggie Furlong, posted Aug 30th 2011 12:00PM
'Happy Endings' does for me what most shows can't: It makes me laugh out loud at least five times an episode. That sounds like it should be a quote on one of their billboards, but I can't help myself -- the cast is hysterical, the writing spot-on and the jokes perfectly inappropriate.

I gushed about it here and here, and I've even gotten my colleague Mo Ryan to love it*, too. (*OK, that's an exaggeration, but I at least helped shame her into giving it a second chance. I'm still set on reaching my ultimate goal: to get her to love it without laundry.)



I've been re-watching episodes online, patiently waiting for Season 1 on DVD (releases Tues., Sept. 20), but I'm greedy when it comes to good comedy. I want more.

So of course I couldn't wait to catch up with the cast -- Elisha Cuthbert, Zach Knighton, Casey Wilson, Adam Pally, Eliza Coupe and Damon Wayans Jr, as well as creator David Caspe -- at their Paley Center screening and panel last night. Check out the interviews after the jump for Season 2 stories, teases for new ah-MAH-zing character quotables, returning guest stars and a few big name celebs they wouldn't say no to either.

'Happy Endings' Premieres with Wedding Walkout and Birthday Disaster (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 14th 2011 2:21AM
'Happy Endings' - 'Pilot'There have been so many bad 'Friends' clones over the years, you might be inclined to just dismiss any new ones that come along. 'Happy Endings' (Wed., 9:30PM ET on ABC) had a strong creative start, though, and may just buck that trend. The premiere introduced us to our cast of characters, and did a great job of giving us reasons to care about all six of them.

That's not easy to do in a pilot, and even harder when there's some pretty heavy storytelling going on. While things kicked off with Alex walking out on Dave at their wedding, it culminated in a birthday party celebration for Penny who was turning 30, but lying about her age to impress her new boyfriend.

Penny's not the only liar, though. According to Max, her boyfriend Dave is hiding something pretty big as well.

'Happy Endings' Set Visit: Meet the Cast of TV's Funniest New Comedy (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Apr 6th 2011 12:00PM
How to describe ABC's new sitcom 'Happy Endings' ... it's smart, one of the funniest new comedies I've seen in a while and, well, the cast can say it better than I can: "It's like the show 'Friends' -- you ever see that show? -- but not as white."

Their words, not mine.



Basically, Dave (Zachary Knighton) and Alex (Elisha Cuthbert) are the perfect couple with the perfect friends. Until she leaves him at the altar on their wedding day. Now those perfect friends -- including gay Max (Adam Pally), single girl Penny (Casey Wilson), and Alex's sister Jane (Eliza Coupe) and her hubby Brad (Damon Wayans Jr.) -- have to help them get things back to normal in order to keep their group alive.

TV Comeback Hopefuls Include Matt LeBlanc, Andie MacDowell and More

by Jane Murphy, posted Sep 4th 2010 2:00PM
Looking over the cast lists of TV shows airing this coming season, you'll find a lot of familiar names that have been lying low of late.

Some are returning just before becoming a "whatever happened to ..."; others seem to be virtually emerging from witness protection. And we're not talking 'I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here,' either. These comeback stories are lined up with some of the hottest projects headed our way.

Matt LeBlanc
The 'Friends' spinoff 'Joey' was primetime's highest profile flop of the '00s (OK, maybe it was 'The XFL'). Now we find LeBlanc thousands of miles away from Hollywood, but that might be a very good thing.

TV Land Picks Up 'Retired at 35'

by Sharon Knolle, posted Apr 19th 2010 11:45AM
Catch that new show on TV Land?

No, this isn't a trick question: According to Variety, the purveyor of classic TV has ordered nine episodes of the original scripted series 'Retired at 35,' set to launch during the first quarter of 2011. The episodes will reportedly air during the network's "TV Land Prime" time slot.

George Segal ('Just Shoot Me') stars in the comedy series, about a party-loving retiree whose 35-year-old son David (Johnathan McClain) decides to quit the rat race and move into his Florida retirement home with him. Casey Wilson ('Saturday Night Live'), Jessica Walter ('Arrested Development') and Tony winner Christine Ebersole co-star as Segal's character's daughter, ex-wife and potential love interest, respectively.

TV Land taps television's vintage hottie vault for new sitcom

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 12th 2010 3:30PM

TV Land has officially jumped into the cable sitcom party, even if they showed up just as the hangovers are starting to set in. And for their first venture, they have enlisted the help of some of television's tastiest babes.

Valerie Bertinelli (One Day at a Time), Jane Leeves (Frasier), Wendy Malick (Just Shoot Me) and Betty White (The Golden Girls) have been brought on board to star in Hot for Cleveland, the second sitcom project approved by the cable network. That's right, Betty White is a TV hottie. I will fight ANYONE who makes fun of me for it.

The other show commissioned by TV Land is Retired at 35, and has lined up actor George Segal, Christine Ebersole and SNL alum Casey Wilson, her first role since she was abruptly pumped from the sketch show. Given TV Land's horrible choices in making their own reality shows, do these even have a chance of being a hit?

Casey Wilson: all she wants to do is dance!

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 16th 2009 8:03AM
Casey WilsonSo Casey Wilson is gone from Saturday Night Live. I don't think she was a good fit there, but I have no doubt she'll turn up some place else and do just fine.

This video from Funny or Die is actually pretty amusing. It's called "Charla Loves To Dance" and features Casey trying to find other people dance with at a bar. I wonder if she wanted to do this on SNL and it got voted down?

Is SNL headed towards disaster this season?

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 9th 2009 1:35PM
Lorne MichaelsShort answer: no. Longer answer: probably not.

It seems that every season is the "Saturday Night Live isn't what it used to be" (aka "Saturday Night Live sucks!") season, but it always survives. And some years, like last season when they had the election to riff on and appearances by Tina Palin and lots of buzz in the news, they thrive. But The Washington Post's Tom Shales visited with executive producer Lorne Michaels and finds that Michaels is worried about the upcoming season.

Saturday Night Live: Will Ferell/Green Day (season finale)

Celebrity Jeopardy
(S34E23) Wow. Way to go, Will Ferrell. Maybe they should just bring back Saturday Night Live alumni for season finales from now on, because this episode was spectacular. Ferrell brought back some old favorites and a slew of famous faces, from the familiar to the inexplicable, including Amy Poehler, Tom Hanks, Anne Hathaway and Artie Lange. Here are some video highlights from the evening (Hulu vids are US only. Sorry, kids... you can also watch these videos at NBC's website).

SNL's Casey Wilson braves the Internet to read about herself

by Annie Wu, posted May 14th 2009 9:03AM
Casey WilsonThose that have even half-paid attention to my Saturday Night Live posts know that I am not a huge fan of featured player Casey Wilson. In fact, I would go so far as to say I actually kind of dislike her on the show. I feel a great deal of familiarity when I watch her on SNL, because she acts the way I probably would if I ever made it onto the program.

Due to my intense, psychologically and emotionally crippling levels of self-loathing, this makes Wilson extra-painful for me to watch. Oh, those poorly timed glances at the camera, they are Casey Wilson's as much as they are mine.

Saturday Night Live: Justin Timberlake/Ciara

SNL Digital Short: Motherlover
(S34E22) Justin Timberlake returned for his third turn as host and it was tough not to keep expectations pretty high. I mean, if an vengeful warlock were to suddenly put a crippling curse on his music career (like they do), Timberlake could definitely fall back on being a professional SNL host. Yes, this would become a real profession, just for him.

As usual, some sketches fell a bit flat, but Timberlake's over-confident, hammy swagger made things a little more interesting. This particular episode also gave us another legendary musical Digital Short with Timberlake and Andy Samberg and a couple of all-around MILFs. It's tough to top a surprise appearance by Leonard effin' Nimoy, but "Motherlover" was certainly the highlight of the evening. Here are some other notable video moments!

Saturday Night Live: Zac Efron/Yeah Yeah Yeahs - VIDEOS

SNL Zac Efron
(S34E21) When it came to everything unrelated to jazz hands, my expectations for Zac Efron were pretty low. Then again, there was part of me that kept thinking back to Justin Timberlake's first time hosting; he was just another song-and-dance good guy but the enthusiasm and craziness he brought to his performances blew everyone away. Okay, so Efron didn't do as well as Timberlake, but as the evening progressed, Efron seemed to get a little more comfortable and delivered a not-too-cingeworthy performance. Consider that a massive victory.

Here are some video highlights from the evening.
