darrell-hammond-new-snl-announcer

Darrell Hammond appeared on Saturday Night Live for 14 years before leaving in 2009. This Fall, he returns to his former stomping grounds.

The 58-year-old has been tapped as the new announcer for the long-running staple. He replaces Don Pardo who’s voiced the series for decades until his death at 96-years-old in August. Hammond has previously on occasion filled in when Pardo had laryngitis. Hammond spoke to USA Today about his new gig.

“He was a lovely person. When he passed, they wanted me; it felt right for me to be the one to replace him,” Hammond tells USA Today. “It’s been a very improbable life; I didn’t expect something like this, but it feels real good.”

matthew-mcconaughey-magic-mike

Sorry lawbreakers, Matthew McConaughey won’t be back to enforce all the stripping laws. Greg Jacobs who is directing the Magic Mike sequel confirmed what was widely speculated. No McConaissance for Magic Mike XXL.

Guess someone’s too big for his britches after winning an Oscar ;) I kid. Thankfully, Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomer will return to show off their seductive moves.

In addition to revealing McConaughey’s status, Jacobs revealed some tidbits about the plot of the highly-anticipated sequel.

“What am I allowed to say?” Greg told IndieWire. “It’s road trip movie and put it this way, it’s different enough that once you see it you’ll understand why we made a sequel. No one will be accusing us of making the same movie twice.”

Magic Mike XXL hits theaters in July 2015. In the meantime, check out Matthew’s stripping performance in the original. It’s most likely the last time you’ll ever see him wearing chaps. Enjoy.

Aubrey Plaza Is Grumpy Cat

No disrespect to Aubrey Plaza, but she sorta looks like a grumpy cat. Her casting is one of the most inspired I’ve read in recent memory.

The Parks and Recreation star will voice Grumpy Cat in Lifetime’s upcoming TV movie Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever. The film centers on “a pet-store cat that is perpetually overlooked and the 12-year-old girl, Chrystal, who can communicate with her.”

Since becoming an internet sensation in 2012, Grumpy Cat has released a book, a coffee product and other ventures. Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever premieres on Lifetime Saturday, November 29, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Are you excited for this? Is Plaza the perfect choice to voice the part? Weigh in below.

In: Donovan, Movies

New Line Cinema’s reboot of the Vacation franchise has been in the works for sometime now. After a few speed bumps, it’s finally on track with filming beginning this month.

Original stars Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo who played the patriarch and matriarch of the Griswold family are expected to make cameos. A sort of passing the torch. Like all the sequels, the Griswold children will be played by different actors from the first film. Check out the reboot/sequel cast below. It even includes an Avenger.

dwts-season-19-premiere

The premiere of any Dancing With The Stars season is my favorite. Watching which stars come out as the early frontrunners and surprise me with their dancing talent brings out my inner nerd. It’s not uncommon to see me break into a smile or clap after witnessing an endearing performance. The Season 19 kick-off was no different.

Though the cast has been criticized for not being exciting or bringing in the star wattage, I quite enjoyed the show. Not surprisingly, Alfonso Ribeiro topped the leaderboard, scoring 9s across the board. After all, he did dance with Michael Jackson as a kid and gave us ‘The Carlton’ on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. It was great his Silver Spoons co-star, Ricky Schroeder, showed his support in the audience.

The one who surprised me the most was Randy Couture. Who knew the wrestler could be so graceful? He’s my dark horse pick. Even though they have no shot in hell to win the mirrorball, both Tommy Chong and Betsey Johnson made me smile. They’re both so adorable and gave better-than-expected performances given their age. Well done. Hopefully, Johnson survives this week despite having the lowest score of the night.

Along with the aforementioned, I’m also rooting for Jonathan Bennett, Lea Thompson and Janel Parrish to do well.

Personally, I hope LoLo Jones gets the axe. She had resting bitch face the entire night after messing up her dance. In all seriousness, she was a flat out BITCH which is a shame because I like her pro, new-to-the-show Keo Motsepe. Check out her misstep below, along with all the other performances.

Cecily Strong Replaced As SNL Weekend Update Anchor

In: Donovan, TV Shows
cecily-strong-weekend-update

After two years co-anchoring Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update, Cecily Strong has been ousted. She will, however, remain as a regular cast member.

The 30-year-old joined Seth Meyers at the famed desk during the 38th Season and sat alongside Colin Jost last season. It appears, the big boss wasn’t happy with their chemistry or lack thereof. In a rather surprising move, Strong is the one being replaced and not newbie Jost.

“It struggled to find an identity last season… because what had come before had been pretty brilliant,” Lorne added. “This is about a new era, what feels appropriate for now. That’s why we did a lot of combinations and tests, and this is kind of where we came out.”
