'Chuck' Star Zachary Levi Talks Nerd HQ: A More Intimate Alternative to Comic-Con

by Laura Prudom, posted Jul 20th 2011 6:40PM
Zachary Levi sporting Nerd Machine apparelStarting today, thousands of fans, celebrities, industry executives and journalists will make the annual pilgrimage to San Diego for Comic-Con International, a five-day festival of all that is geeky and fantastical.

For some, it's a chance to meet their favorite TV and movie stars, for others, it's to test out the latest video games, while plenty go just to get their hands on the newest comics, merchandise and free swag from studios. What they'd all likely agree on, though, is that with over 120,000 attendees, Comic-Con can be more than a little overwhelming.

Enter Zachary Levi, star of NBC's 'Chuck' and holder of some indisputable geek credibility. Levi is right alongside Nathan Fillion and Joss Whedon in terms of commanding a loyal nerd army, eager to follow him from project to project. Having experienced Comic-Con as both an entertainer and a fan, Levi found himself wondering if he could do something to improve the San Diego experience for the people it was supposedly designed for -- to allow fans and the people that they're fans of to interact in a more intimate, low-key setting, while still enjoying the same mecca of merchandise, video games and comic books they've come to know and love from Comic-Con.

Thus, the Nerd HQ was born -- viva la Nerdolution!

Seth Green and Jimmy Fallon Talk About Google+ Being Invitation Only (VIDEO)

Seth Green, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'If Google+ is poised to overthrow Facebook, Seth Green thinks they may need to reconsider one aspect of their current business model. As he told Jimmy Fallon on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), "The best way to overthrow the Facebook giant is to offer something that's invitation-only."

He then went into a long impression of a Google+ employee teasing people who want those coveted invitations.

"Why don't you check your email every five minutes," he said. "We'll see if we send you an invitation ... The second that invitation shows up, you better sign up, because if it's six minutes, you're not gonna get it."

Boba Fett Gets His Revenge on the 'Star Wars' Heroes ... At Last (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Dec 20th 2010 6:01AM
Boba Fett Gets His Revenge on the 'Star Wars' Heroes ... At LastThey say that revenge is a dish that is best served cold. But then, that's a quote from 'Star Trek.' And we're more concerned with 'Star Wars,' in this instance -- plus some "hot" revenge.

The animated special 'Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III' (Sun., 11:30PM ET on CN) takes an irreverent look at the 'Star Wars' universe. And the show brings back one of the most beloved figures in geekdom, bounty hunter Boba Fett.

In the real 'Star Wars' movies, the relentless Boba Fett captures Han Solo, delivering him to Jabba the Hutt. But then, Luke Skywalker frees Han Solo -- and Boba is killed when his jetpack is accidentally activated. The bounty hunter dies from ... crashing into a sail barge and falling into a big pit. It's a really lame ending for a really cool bad guy. Ever since then, geeks have wished that Mr. Fett hadn't died. Now, 'Robot Chicken' gives him a second chance.

'The Late Late Show' Takes on 'Star Wars'A long time ago ... in a galaxy far, far away -- well, you know the rest. And not that long ago -- but still, you know, about three years ago -- Seth Green began making animated specials mocking 'Star Wars.' And so, on the new 'Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), Craig Ferguson and Mr. Green took on the Star Wars saga.

Seth previewed his new 'Robot Chicken'-based Star Wars special; while Craig -- well, Craig mainly asked some questions. Questions such as this one: What is Darth Vader doing struggling with his suit in a bathroom?

Seth Green Talks Parenting via 'Robot Chicken: Star Wars' (VIDEO)

Seth Green Talks 'Robot Chicken' on 'Daily Show'Seth Green appeared on 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on COM) to chat about "Episode III" of his 'Robot Chicken: Star Wars' trilogy. The award-winning animated specials have become a force (pardon the pun) in themselves.

"I've had parents tell me that they introduced their kids to 'Star Wars' through 'Robot Chicken,'" said Green. "That is... counter-productive."

Jon Stewart asked, "Do you think that's just parents getting high [while] watching 'Robot Chicken' and the kids walk in and go, 'Can I have a glass of-- What's this?'" Green considered that to be a tad irresponsible -- the pot-smoking, not the program choice. Oh, uh, right. "No, that doesn't happen at all," Stewart joked sheepishly.

'Robot Chicken' Duo Create Interactive Digital Reality Series

Seth Green and Matthew Senreich at the 2010 Creative Arts EmmysAre Seth Green and Matthew Senreich changing the face of TV as we know it?

Fresh from scooping up a Creative Arts Emmy for 'Robot Chicken' last month, it's been reported that they're launching an online reality TV experiment in which viewers decide every major decision a person makes. And unlike the Robot Chicken, that's a real person, not a clay model.

'ControlTV' will follow the life of a twenty-something guy for six weeks, and it will enable the audience to vote, in real time, on every aspect of his life -- from what he wears and eats, to where he works, to who he dates. It's slated to debut in the fall on DBG Video Network.

Brian and Stewie Are Trapped on 'Family Guy'It's the 150th episode of 'Family Guy' (Sun., 9PM ET on Fox). On the very special episode, Brian and Stewie Griffin end up trapped together in a bank vault. Spending so much enforced time together makes the two characters realize they don't really hate each other after all. In fact, they might kind of love one another.

Lucasfilm Milks the Dead Cow with Star Wars TV Comedy

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 6th 2010 11:35AM
Robot Chicken Star WarsGeorge Lucas has already created a spin-off cartoon and a computer animated series on Cartoon Network of his famous 'Star Wars' franchise. Now, Lucasfilm Animation will be working with the creators behind 'Robot Chicken,' among others, to create an animated 'Star Wars' comedy series.

'Robot Chicken' along with 'Family Guy' proved that there is comedy potential in the 'Star Wars' franchise, but it sounds like Lucas is further mitigating the cultural impact of the first trilogy (or even the second trilogy, going by order of release) by making light of it.

Lucas has long proven that the fans care more about the franchise than he ever did. It has gotten to the point where pumping out 'Star Wars' dreck is a means to an end. Perhaps he wants the money to build his own Death Star?

Of course, that live action 'Star Wars' series has yet to appear, so this latest item could just be someone's idea of a late April Fool's Day prank. One can have "a new hope."

Lucasfilm Animation announced the new series Monday, promising "a comedic and irreverent look at the characters from the sci-fi franchise." Green offers a hint at where he'll take these iconic characters.

According to Variety, Adult Swim has ordered 40 additional episodes of 'Robot Chicken,' providing the top-rated stop-action series with enough material to fill seasons 5 and 6. Prior seasons have aired 20 episodes at a time, already a strong display of network confidence in the product.

(S04E06) This episode was a rare star-studded treat for Venture Bros. Really honing in on the idea of adult aftermath in the lives of boy adventurer types, Jackson Publick introduced a robot boy, boy detective brothers (Seth Green and John Hodgman), former Wonder Boy (Patton Oswalt) and the return of Action Johnny (Brendon Small). Never before have so many guest voices (okay, four) been crammed into an installment, bringing the entire audience to an immediate nerdgasm.

What You Missed Last Night: Spencer Pratt wants to run for President

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 19th 2009 1:30PM
Last night, Spencer Pratt announced on The Tonight Show that he might run for President. His reasoning? It has to do with becoming hated by everyone and hacking computers. Or something. I don't think he's thought it through yet. Seth Green gets a little dig in, and the audience is obviously tired of him and Heidi.

What you don't hear in the clip (it cuts off early) is the audience actually booing Heidi and Spencer. My favorite part of the show was the end, as the music played and credits rolled Conan talked to guest Brian Setzer and Green talked to Andy, leaving Speidi all alone in the middle on the couch, not sure where to look or who to talk to.
