Greg Mottola’s (Superbad, Adventureland) untitled comedy starring Larry David, Jon Hamm and Michael Keaton should be debuting on HBO in the future as more details emerge about the partially improvised comedy.
Variety and the LA times report that the plot concerns David who will play a marketing executive part of the brain trust to market a new electric car. Since he doesn’t like the car’s name (“The Howard,” after The Fountainhead’s Howard Roark), he gets in a fight with the car’s creator (Hamm). David’s character gives away his stake in the project; the outcome favors Hamm, who becomes rich. This creates friction between David’s character and Hamm. Keaton would be playing a character named Stumpo, a crazy businessman who is David’s friend.
The comedy is based on an original idea from David, he and Curb Your Enthusiasm write Alec Berg will tackle the script.
Here is a full new trailer for Bobby and Peter Farrelly’s The Three Stooges movie, which will be hitting theaters on April 13th. It’s full of sounds that come right out of a classic Stooges film, but I still feel this won’t work with today’s audiences. I would much rather have seen these guys handle a black and white version set in the 40′s or 50′s. Here is the first trailer that features Snookie, sigh.
Left on a nun’s doorstep, Larry, Curly and Moe grow up finger-poking, nyuk-nyuking and woo-woo-wooing their way to uncharted levels of knuckleheaded misadventure. Out to save their childhood home, only The Three Stooges could become embroiled in an oddball murder plot…while also stumbling into starring in a phenomenally successful TV reality show.
The question was will Peter and Bobby Farrelly‘s The Three Stooges (a passion project once set to star Sean Penn, Jim Carrey and Benicio Del Toro) be any good? From watching the trailer below, I can answer this – but why give it away, watch it yourself.
Of course Snooki is in, the movie is set in the present day, it’s also got iPhone gags too – these are things we know! As for the cast, I have to say the impressions here are good enough. The original Stooges had impeccable timing though, something I don’t can be captured in modern take with more editing than the Stooges are used to.
Three Stooges opens April 13th, 2012, here’s the trailer and synopsis:
The most celebrated victim of circumstance Larry David is back, and bringing his reign of right to NYC for the eighth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm on HBO. Ricky Gervais will show up at some point, and from the trailer another hero of mine is making an appearance, Michael J. Fox!
The season premiere hits HBO on Sunday, July 10th. (more…)
One of the best TV shows of all time is returning, and it’s looking great as usual. Curb Your Enthusiasm comes to New York and we have a short behind the scenes look to get you excited. In the eighth season of the hit HBO series we see guest stars Ricky Gervais, Michael J. Fox and Rosie O’Donnell making appearances as well as the always welcome J.B. Smoove as Leon. Note: There was another teaser floating around the net this week but HBO has since taken it away, so this one which I hadn’t seen before might be a rerun for some.
Check it out Sunday, July 10, at 10 pm.
Larry David is back and this time he takes on New York City. The new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm premieres this year only on HBO and they were kind enough to send over a great teaser trailer for the highly anticipated season. I can’t wait!
Also, as an added bonus I’ve included one of Leon’s best moments. Watch both after the jump: (more…)
Variety tells me that Ricky Gervais is going to be on an episode of Curb in the next and 8th season. They wouldn’t lie to me, would they? That is fantastic news. One of the best TV shows of all time and the greatest living person working together is exactly what we need.
Gervais will play himself (although obviously a heightened reality version) in the eighth episode of the season, shooting later this summer to air next year.
Gervais appeared in one episode of the upcoming Louie C.K. show on FX and I am told it was absolutely hilarious. Here is a video (part 1 of 6) you should watch, Larry David and Gervais meet and basically fall in love. Sweet really. (more…)
