The 'It's Always Sunny' Gang Talks Prostitutes, Pageants & Season 7 (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Sep 9th 2011 1:45PM
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' is back for a seventh season (premieres Thurs., Sept. 15, 10PM ET on FX), and judging by what the cast revealed when I visited the set, the gang is all in fine 'Sunny' form.

"This is like, without a doubt, the craziest season," Danny DeVito said. "Danny brought it all in," Rob McElhenney noted. "And he's devolved over the last few years on a personal level, and so we've taken advantage of that and put that in the show."

The season premiere features their version of 'Pretty Woman,' which is much more grounded in reality. "Julia Roberts would only look like Julia Roberts for a very short period of time on the streets before looking like Julio Roberts," Glenn Howerton said. Charlie Day chimed in, "Someone would've cut that b*tch!"

Then there's a 'Toddlers & Tiaras'-inspired kids beauty pageant that the cast had a lot of fun with. "It's one of my favorites," Kaitlin Olson admitted. "Dee's really into it, which is always so fun for me, when she's super into something." "Put a five year old in some WOW! Wear, and it just says America," Day added.

The 'It's Always Sunny' Gang Talks Fat Mac's 50-Pound Weight Gain (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Aug 15th 2011 2:15PM

Rob McElhenneyBy now, fans of 'Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia' have heard about Rob McElhenney's massive weight gain, which will be prominently featured in Season 7 (premieres Thurs., Sept. 15, 10PM ET on FX). You've probably even seen a few pictures of him looking quite a bit plumper. But, trust us -- you haven't seen him like this.

I visited the 'Sunny' set to get scoop on the new season -- including the upcoming high school reunion and an episode inspired by 'Toddlers & Tiaras' (more on that before the season premieres) -- and I got a very big surprise: Mac at his fattest point.

"We call him Fat Mac and he says, 'Well, will you call me Big Mac?' and I say, 'I'll call you Big Fat Mac,'" Glenn Howerton jokes. "But not just Big Mac, because Big Mac implies muscles and sort of strength."

And what does his loving wife Kaitlin Olson have to say about it? "People are gonna think you got fat and we had to write it in!" Yeah, we did kind of think that for a bit, but apparently this was all for comedy's sake.

Check out our video interviews to see Mac at his heaviest, and to hear about the side effects of his extreme weight gain, including a possibly not funny fatty liver and a completely destroyed metabolism.

Rob McElhenney gained 50 pounds for the new season of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.'Rob McElhenney thought it'd be weirdly funny if he gained fifty pounds for Season 7 of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.' He was right: the mere sight of the previously fit, now very Fat Mac proved instantly hilarious when an on-set picture of McElhenney surfaced and went viral a few weeks ago.

Now we're getting a first look at a teaser trailer for the new fall season, and Mac's weight gain is taking center stage. Actually, it's taking up the entire stage.

In the trailer, Mac progresses from sobbing into an oversized bowl of cereal to laying in a hospital bed surrounded by the gang, clutching a plate of cookies for dear life.

Check out the trailer after the jump.

The 'It's Always Sunny' Gang Talks Babies, Balls on Fire and Tom Sizemore (VIDEO)

It's Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaNow that we've all been entertained by the screenwriting talents of Charlie and Mac, witnessed Dennis and Dee explore the worst parts of dating with the D.E.N.N.I.S. System and seen Frank's naked body, what's next for the 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' gang?

Two words: Tom Sizemore.

I caught up with Glenn Howerton, Danny DeVito, Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney to find out about the new season (premieres Thurs., Sept. 16, 10PM ET on FX) and got an earful about Hollywood bad boy Sizemore and his awesomely twisted turn on the show.

We also talked babies (Olson and McElhenney are expecting their first child, a girl, any day now) and, of course, the best ways to get them tanned and camera-ready (see "The Gang Finds a Dumpster Baby" if you don't get the joke). Then we touched on what's got DeVito's balls on fire, how many more seasons the show will go and why we do or don't -- there are conflicting opinions on this -- want to see a 50-year-old Sweet Dee.

Pilot News: CBS Picks Up Show From 'Borat' Duo

by Mike Scalise, posted Feb 12th 2010 11:30AM
The 'Borat' crew will be tackling some daddy issues.

According to Variety, CBS just gave the green light to the writer/director team of the 2006 mega hit 'Borat' -- Anthony Hines and Larry Charles, respectively -- to develop a comedy pilot about a father (Paul Kaye) who re-enters the life of his newly famous daughter. (No word yet on if Michael Lohan or Billy Ray Cyrus have been enlisted to consult.)

This news caps off a busy few months for Charles, who will work with McG ('Terminator: Salvation'; 'Charlie's Angels') on a "semi-scripted" project for NBC that will feature sci-fi enthusiasts submitting fan films of their favorite canceled shows.

'Lost' - 'What Kate Does' Recap

(S06E03) "It's the Others, dude. They caught us ... again." - Hurley

As 'What Kate Does' unfolded, I couldn't help but shake the feeling that everything we're witnessing in the "post-Jughead worked" 2004 time-line is going to end up being very important. Of course, that could have been due to the fact that in this past week's Official 'Lost' Audio Podcast, Cuse and Lindelof essentially laid it bare for us -- there is no alternate reality happening here. What's going on in LA in 2004 and what's going on in 2007 on the island are both very real.

The question to ask is what effect actions in one time-line will have on the events in the other. As far as 'Lost' mindf#%ks go, this one is a doozie, because it's forced us to reevaluate everything we remember about these characters, right back to the pilot episode.

Well, that's it for season five of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. It would have been foolish to expect something mind-blowing this week, because, as usual, the show didn't go out with a bang or any nail-biting cliffhanger. Instead, there were people vomiting, naked chicks in blacklight paint, beer, and lots of screaming. Just another day for the owners of Paddy's Pub.

Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Mac and Charlie Write a Movie

I think we all need to take a hot second to review what fantastic, life-improving ideas this season has presented us thus far. Earlier, we learned the benefits of funneling box wine into soda cans (beyond the immediate high class appeal of it all). Then we were schooled in the ways of the DENNIS System, allowing us to more efficiently get ladies to bang. And in this episode, we learned that keeping sausage links in your shirt pocket is a smart way to keep your hands free and open to get greasy in other ways.

This is all shaping up to be a fine education, folks. I think it goes without saying that It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is Sesame Street for adults.

Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - The DENNIS System

A weird thing has been happening this season, where I find myself really appreciating what the writers have been doing with the gang but I'm not laughing nearly as much as I should. This episode was a prime example of that. Dennis is notorious for his way with women, so hearing a full breakdown of the DENNIS System should have been a complete riot (a riot with cringing, sure). I smiled at certain parts and quietly enjoyed the scary-elaborate ways of Dennis and the rest of the gang, though ultimately, the laughs fell short. Perhaps things are feeling a little forced this season?

Trust in the douchiness of your characters and the chemistry of your actors, writers! The lines will come.

(S05E09) Well. This episode was certainly successful in further quelling the doubts of any audience members that are still, for whatever reason, unconvinced that all the guys from It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia are actually super-gay for each other. Yeah, not just "gay" but "super-gay." Considering the adorable, almost symbiotic nature of the guys' relationships, I would probably just refer to them as "hetero lifemates," but Frank and Charlie play Nightcrawlers and we all know what happened onstage between Dayman and Nightman in "The Nightman Cometh." Don't fight it.

Review: It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia - Paddy's Pub: Home of the Original Kitten Mittens

Yes! Finally. The moment we've all been waiting for. Ever since the season five promos first aired, I have been eagerly anticipating some sort of context for Charlie's uncontrollable eyebrows and the ridiculous Kitten Mittens (or Kitten Mittons, as it were). Seeing the ad in full certainly didn't disappoint, though I wish we could have seen more Kitten Mittons throughout the episode. Admittedly, thirty-some minutes of cats struggling in booties probably doesn't sound like a hot idea, but, hey, animal humor has sustained many a clip show.

Plus, I heart over-enthusiastic Charlie.

Review: It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia - The Gang Wrestles for the Troops

(S05E07) This episode brought back many things that fans of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia have already come to know and love: nearly aggressive patriotism, needless shirtnessness, songs sung in falsetto and, of course, Rickety Cricket. I would like to also submit that the Birds of War get-up (pictured above) would be perfect for this Halloween, especially if you're desperate for few high-fives or silent nods of approval. It covers a wide range, as it appeals to both Always Sunny fans and people who like America and/or chickens. I mean, eagles.

Ooh! Things I learned in high school! This episode of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia was presented as a frame story, just like The Canterbury Tales. Did the gang out-Chaucer Chaucer!? Well, no, but it was a lot funnier than the Wife of Bath, I can promise you that.

There were a lot of excellent moments (read on to find out who won the "Best Retch-Face" award, which is as coveted as it is imaginary) and they made for a solid episode, though not one to immediately jump into my favorites. Admittedly, that's an unreasonable weekly expectation anyway. Oh well. At least we got some Greenman.

(S05E05) This, more than any of the other episodes from the current season, felt the most true to the show. I know, that's kind of weird, since the canon is growing and developing with every installment, but this episode had all the things that we've come to know and love from It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, from Frank's increasingly speedy spiral toward rock-bottom to Charlie and Dee's personal issues with the Waitress (never give her a name, for the love of everything that is terrible and in poor form). The schemes and the chemistry of the gang was extra-perfect in this episode, especially during the rapid-fire conversations surrounding Mac, Dennis and Charlie.

This is one of those episodes I've pocketed away in case I need to subject -- I mean, introduce -- an uninitiated person to the world of Always Sunny.
