• What is today, casting news day?! Here are your new Saturday Night Live cast members: Beck Bennett, John Milhiser, Kyle Mooney, and Noël Wells! -Splitsider
  • Aziz Ansari got a $3.5 million book deal, which is insane! I’m not sure if you guys know, but 3.5 million is a LOT when you’re counting it in dollars. The book “will provide an investigation into what Ansari argues is an entirely new era for singles, in which the basic issues facing a single person — whom we meet, how we meet them, and what happens next — have been radically altered by new technologies.” -THR
  • Dan Messé has been commissioned to adapt Amélie for Broadway. -Paste
  • Here is another trailer for Homeland’s third season, you guys. -Showtime
  • Speaking of trailers for things we’ve already seen trailers for, do you want to watch the new Inside Llewyn Davis trailer? Apparently it’s a little spoiler-y, so I am NOT going to watch it, but it is forever a free country and you can do whatever. -FilmDrunk

  1. if he wasn’t so short aziz would totally be on my laminated list of celebrities i have permission to have sex with.

  2. Wait, I thought Matt Silvestri was going to be on SNL?

  3. here’s my obligatory “oh cool, more white people with a 3 to 1 male to female ratio!” comment about SNL. feel free to downvote if you’re tired of seeing it.

    (yes, I realize they lost a bunch of white people with a roughly 3 to 1 male to female ratio, but here’s their chance to broaden)

    • One of them has an umlaut so I think that’s diversity.

    • Aww, you beat me to it.

    • Beck Bennet is the guy from those AT&T ads with the kids. I read a piece about him (he’s a Chicago area native), and other than the fact that he went to USC, he seems like a good guy. Hopefully he’ll be funny on SNL.

    • The fact that truckasaurus has to pre-acknowledge how tiresome the argument is is evidence enough of how bad SNL’s race/gender problem is.

      W. Kamau Bell proves that you can have lots of different-looking people who are funny as shit.

      The truth is, nothing has changed since 1975:


      (recent-ish; you get the idea)

      • Yes, and not just SNL…I said this about when Seth Meyers got announced as the new Late NIght host. I like Seth Meyers a lot, I think he’s really funny, it’s just like “cool, another white guy.”

    • Ha ha – I was typing my comment, “What do you know, more white people,” and then thought I should read the other comments first and here you are. Totally agree, truckasaurus.

  4. Concerned Claire Danes is not nearly as entertaining as crying Claire Danes, but I’m a total narcissist like that. I did some triple-takes at hunched in the corner in a blue shirt Danes from the first teaser. Girl needs to stop stealing my face.

  5. Morning news: Courtney Stodden has just joined the UK Celebrity Big Brother house. I’m watching it on your behalves.
