Presenting “The Wire: The Musical”!

Watch Video

Oh my god, file this one under “Spoof Videos That I Wish Would Become Real Life” — it’s “The Wire: The Musical,” featuring original cast members  Michael K. Williams as “Omar,” Andre Royo as “Bubbles,” and Sonja Sohn as “Kimma,” singing and dancing about drug dealing, shooting heroin, and busting caps! Seriously, why can’t this work? I would happily drive to Baltimore for opening night. (On another note, who ate Stringer Bell?) [Funny Or Die]

Well, this might be the strangest, if not the funniest, “Downton Abbey” spoof. Richard Kind and a host of other semi-recognizable actors star in “Downton Arby’s” about a noble family about to lose their Arby’s franchise. Sybil is still flirting with the help (this time, a curly fry guy), Bates and Anna fall in love at the griddle, O’Brien and Thomas are conniving drive-thru tellers, and Edith is still kind of pathetic and overlooked. Just like the real “Downton,” only with more greasy roast beef. Check out the video after the jump! [The FW.com]

"30 Rock" MLK Day trailer
Watch Video

Emma Stone, Andy Samberg, Nick Cannon, the essence of Hugh Grant in every single movie he has ever made, and “America’s Kidz Got Singing” star Jenna Maroney have a dream. And that dream is that your butt will be in a seat on the opening night of “MLK Day.” It’s a feel-good rom-com about blacks and whites, love and heartbreak, and not having a date with whom to observe a government holiday.

It looks terrible. And thankfully, it only exists on “30 Rock.” [BuzzFeed]

The Muppets Take “The Green Lantern”

 

 

I’m having a hard time staying patient while waiting for the new Muppet movie, which won’t be in theaters until Thanksgiving. So I’m happy that Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and crew have taken to making parodies of the big movies of summer 2011. In this brand new one, the Muppets do “The Green Lantern.” I love the line, “If I didn’t know better, I’d say you were reciting some sort of important plot point.” [Huffington Post]

After the jump, more Muppet movie parodies. Keep reading »

Katie Couric In “Kate Plus 80″

On Tuesday night, Katie Couric sat down with Jimmy Kimmel to talk about where she’s going from here. She discussed her new talk show but also said that she has a new reality series in the works. “I’m particularly excited about that. That’s what clinched the deal for me,” she said. “Because, you know, I thought people really deserved an inside look at my life because it’s so fascinating,” Cut to a promo of “Kate Plus 80.” “Okay you little monsters, dinner time,” Katie yells into a bullhorn, before slingshotting pasta and spaghetti sauce all over a big group of kids. “You get what you get and you don’t get upset.” Who knew she had good comedic timing?

Lindsay Lohan And Eva Longoria Want You To Try Humpilates


While most of Hollywood was feelin’ classy after the Academy Awards, a select group of starlets wasn’t afraid to get crass for the sake of fitness. On “Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Academy Awards,” Jessica Alba, Minka Kelly, Jessica Biel and Sofia Vergara made a mock infomercial for a new workout craze called Hottie Body Humpilates. “Hump it up. Hump it down. Take a train to humpy town!” Jimmy sang, as the girls thrusted at oversized exercise balls. Then Eva Longoria appeared to give her glowing review of the workout: “I couldn’t stop humping! I hump everywhere—at work, at the beach, in the car.” Finally, Lindsay Lohan put in her two cents: “Lions hump upwards of 40 times a night. I’ve spent thousands of hours watching them.” Funny.

Jimmy Fallon’s “Real Housewives Of Late Night” Is Back For Season Two


It took four years, but I am finally feeling “Real Housewives” fatigue. I couldn’t bring myself to watch Tuesday night’s premiere of “The Real Housewives of Miami” — but, I am very, very excited for Jimmy Fallon‘s awesomely well-done spoof series, “The Real Housewives of Late Night,” where he and several of his staff members dress up like ladies for 10-minute mock episodes of the show. (The last one, from December, is above.) “The Real Housewives of Late Night” begins its second season tonight—Jimmy has made five mini-episodes which will air every other Thursday night. “It did make me really see how much women go through to get ready,” Fallon says of the series. “I have great makeup and hair people doing it. I could never picture myself doing it; it would take three hours. … By the time we did one of these, I was looking in the mirror thinking, does this make me look fat?” I’ll be watching tonight, for sure.

Ain’t Nothin’ But A “Glee” Thang, Baby


Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Naya Rivera, Cory Monteith, and several other familiar “Glee” faces teamed up for this Funny or Die spoof, “Ain’t Nothin’ But A ‘Glee’ Thang.” It’s reasonably funny, though I think it would have packed a lot more punch if Dr. Dre or Snoop Dogg had made an appearance (hey, Snoop did the “Oh Sookie” video), or if the teens in the intro were sipping on gin and juice. That said, I do like the bit where Sofia Vergara gushes about Jane Lynch, which sure feels like a make good for the time her “Modern Family” co-star said Jane didn’t deserve her Emmy. And I also appreciated the random diss on AT&T in here. True dat. Keep reading »

Fake “Scream 4″ Poster Says There’s Only Room For 5 Pop Divas

At first glance you might think Beyoncé is in “Scream 4” with … Lady Gaga? And Rihanna? And then, whoa, what? Christina Aguilera‘s in “Scream 4,” too, and she’s going to die?!?! Then you realize someone is just very good at Photoshop. And there’s only room for five pop divas in 2011, apparently. Watch your back, Xtina! [Guanabee] Keep reading »
