David Letterman and Seth Rogen Smash Fruit and More With a Giant Gavel (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jan 7th 2011 3:21AM
Seth Rogen, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Tonight on the 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM on CBS), David Letterman channeled his inner Gallagher, taking a giant gavel and smashing fruit on his desk. But when that proved not to be impressive enough, he moved on to statuary.

Guest Seth Rogen was hoping for a finale with Letterman smashing the big mic. Not one to leave a guest disappointed, Letterman brought out the big mic and gave Rogen the gavel, so that he could do the honors.

The piece of equipment proved more durable than perhaps either of them realized, but Rogen kept at it with a childlike glee until he finally managed to start breaking it down into its component pieces.

Who needs intellectual conversation, or even verbal shilling of Rogen's 'Green Hornet' project, when you can just have your guests come out and break stuff? Hey, it's been working for Jerry Springer all these years.

'Stand Up To Cancer': Stars Use Comedy for a Cause (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Sep 13th 2010 5:20AM
Seth Rogen, Elizabeth Banks on 'Stand Up To Cancer'Actor Ken Jeong only gets naked for the deep films, when it's "integral" to the plot. Yeah, right. Like in 'The Hangover.' And he also strips down for his dermatologist, he explained on 'Stand Up To Cancer' (Fri., 8PM ET on BIO). Live on the fund-raising telethon, his doctor looked him over for signs of skin cancer.

Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks continued the discussion of skin-cancer screenings. The stars of 'Zack and Miri Make a Porno' didn't shy away from specifics. Rogen admitted that guys can even "get skin cancer on your stones."

"In fact, you can get skin cancer anywhere you have skin," added Banks. "That's why skin self-examination is critical." Rogen opined: "Your man berries will thank you for it."

Also in the clip: Will Smith, Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe.

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

James Cameron on the set of
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.

Seth Rogen not a fan of Entourage

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 22nd 2009 12:15PM
RogenHey, two days in a row we've had Seth Rogen posts. This wasn't planned.

If you watched this Sunday's episode of Entourage, you saw the gang debating Rogen's ugliness. And Rogen has made it known he's not a fan of the show. Oh, maybe he was at one point, but when you start calling someone ugly on national television, you're bound to get on that person's bad side.

Rogen says that Entourage creator Doug Ellin is a moron.

Should Nicolas Cage be the Green Hornet villain?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 21st 2009 8:01PM
The Green HornetI'm not sure if Green Hornet fans are looking forward to the new big-screen movie based on the 60s TV show that starred Van Williams and Bruce Lee. First they grimaced when they found out that Seth Rogen was not only writing the movie but would also play The Green Hornet (even if he has slimmed down), and now comes word that Nicolas Cage might play the villain.

Is this a good or a bad thing? Cage can be uniquely awesome in some roles but alienating in other roles.

Should Nicolas Cage be the Green Hornet villain?
Yes, he'll be great!100 (28.4%)
No, he'll ruin it!173 (49.1%)
What the heck is The Green Hornet?79 (22.4%)

Saturday Night Live: Seth Rogen/Phoenix - VIDEOS

Seth Rogen on SNL
(S34E20) Seth Rogen returned to host for the second time to promote his new mall cop movie (yeah, I know). Unlike last time, when there were one or two stand-out sketches, this episode didn't have any particularly memorable moments. However, there were Muppets, Mogwai and a thinner Seth Rogen involved, so maybe things weren't too horrible.
