The 2012 Presidential Election is undoubtedly going to be the inspiration for plenty of great comedy. How can we tell? Funny or Die has made their own Politics page to “cover” the race for office and killed it right from the start by enlisting none other than Mike Tyson as presidential hopeful Herman Cain. This might be a great day for both Tyson and Cain. Despite their past careers, they’re destined to be comedy gold.
He may not be hosting the Oscars anymore, but he does co-star in Tower Heist, which, despite its embattled director Bratt Ratner, is doing just fine at the box office. And, as it turns out, that’s not the only flick on the horizon for the iconic comedian. After nearly three years on the shelf, Murphy’s movie A Thousand Words is set to hit theaters March 23, 2012.
Murphy stars as slimy businessman who can only say 1,000 words for the rest of his life. Why, you ask? Well, because a Native American put a curse on him, of course. Anyway, here’s the trailer. It looks kinda crappy. Check it out and let us know what you think!
Most of us know Tracy Morgan from his hilarious performances on Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. Yet three days ago his new movie “The Son of No One,” a police/crime drama, released in the United States, marking just the second time the comedian has starred in a dramatic film.
The movie has an incredible cast. as Morgan co-stars with Al Pacino, Ray Liotta, Katie Holmes and Channing Tatum.
For those wondering if Morgan actually had the acting chops to pull it off, check out the review he got from LA Times writer Robert Abele. Although Abele was mostly unimpressed with the movie as a whole, he was more than surprised by Morgan’s acting skills: “The shocker, though, is Tracy Morgan’s concentrated, powerful turn as Jonathan’s estranged best bud, transformed into a near-catatonic, mentally disturbed shell. His faraway look says much more than the incoherent strands of Montiel’s plot.”
Ellen DeGeneres was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, and the notorious sweetheart presented a real threat to aspiring sweetheart Jimmy Kimmel. There’s no other way to settle cases like this one. A nice-off is the only way, and a nice-off they shall have, in front of a whole bunch of people and one guy inexplicably holding groceries. Kimmel gives it a good effort, but DeGeneres pulls out all the stops with her dancing and distribution of personalized tofutti cuties. By the way, after watching this video, I still have no idea what a tofutti cutie is, but I want one so bad.
