Trailer for David O. Russell’s AMERICAN HUSTLE Starring Curly Bradley Cooper and Bloated Christian Bale
The first trailer for David O. Russell’s American Hustle is out and about today, watch it below. The story is based on an undercover sting operation called “Abscam” set up in the 1980′s by a con artist working for the FBI who rooted out corruption in Congress. Christian Bale plays that con artist. We also get Amy Adams as his accomplice and Bradley Cooper plays as an FBI agent. Our Hunger Games sweetheart Jennifer Lawrence also makes an appearance.
The movie looks and sounds like 2001′s Blow, which isn’t a bad thing. David O. Russell is in the good books these days with hits and award friendly movies like The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook; I can’t say I liked either of movies too much so here’s hoping he can wind me round with this great cast and intriguing story.
American Hustle opens in limited release on December 13th before going wide on December 25th.
Louis C.K. has a new stand-up comedy special called Oh My God airing Saturday night at 10 p.m. on HBO and then every day after that pretty much. He’s one of the funniest guys alive right now, so it might be worth checking out. Here are some promotional videos to line your stomach with:
There isn’t a lot to say here, this is just great.
Oh My God will premiere on April 13th on HBO, it was recorded during C.K.’s recent U.S. tour, and is directed by the comedian. And as C.K. so puts it in the promo, it will be “the greatest comedy of a generation of blah-blah ever to do a thing on a thing.”
Saturday, April 13th at 10 PM. There.

A new red band trailer for writer-director Roman Coppola’s comedy A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III:
Woody Allen’s upcoming film will be entitled Blue Jasmine and we have the plot details thanks to Vulture. Allen, who has made a movie every year for decades, will tackle another romantic comedy that centers on a woman whose “posh New York City lifestyle” comes crashing down so she makes a move to San Francisco. The press release says “It is the story of the final stages of an acute crisis and a life of a fashionable New York housewife.”
Allen has rounded up all-star cast which includes Alec Baldwin, Cate Blanchett, Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K., Andrew Dice Clay, Sally Hawkins, Peter Sarsgaard and Michael Stuhlbarg. No release date, but let’s guess 2013 sometime.
FX’s Louie won’t be returning until sometime in 2014, until then we will have to make due with Louis C.K.’s awesome standup and appearances on anything. It was announced last Saturday that C.K. will be hosting Saturday Night Live on November 3rd. This will be his first time hosting SNL, something I never actually saw him doing, he seems too cool for it doesn’t he?
FYI: C.K. is longtime friends with SNL star Amy Poheler and has a recurring role on Parks and Recreation.

You can watch Louis is a NEW stand-up special with all new material for $5 in your home, from anywhere in the world. He’s one of the most honest comedians working today and a refreshing voice in a world of very unfunny people, you need to buy it.
During an “ask me anything” session on Reddit, Louis C.K. was asked about the experience of making Pootie Tang (a film he wrote and directed). His response was really an answer to why he’s doing this download experiment:

A year’s worth, crazy. And Here We…Go! (more…)
If there is one thing Ricky Gervais is good at (and there’s a lot) it would have to be sitting around just avin’ a laugh. He’s been doing it for years on his Guinness Record breaking podcast with Steve and Karl, and now he’s taking it to a whole other level.
Here’s Ricky Gervais’ TV special, Talking Funny – a discussion about comedy with Ricky Gervais, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock and Louis CK. These four great comedians of our time are sitting around and just shooting the shit. It aired on HBO April 22nd 2011, and someone has put it online. Theft.
The special is unique in that it doesn’t have a host or moderator. It’s just four comedy legends matching wits, talking shop and making each other laugh in a purely conversational manner. [HP]
