Dino Stamatopoulos new show Mary Shelley's Frankenhole!

Well we know what Star-burns has been up to between seasons of Community!  The first season of Mary Shelley's Frankenhole debuted June 27 at 12:30a ET and Adult Swim has the web site up for the show as well as a very telling interview into the genius mind of of Dino Stamatopoulos!

Here is an excerpt from the interview:
Why should people watch Frankenhole?
I really have no idea why they should watch it. It's actually a show that looks nothing like any other show ever on TV because of the way these puppets were made. Because there were so many likenesses of people in the show, we decided early on that we can't really afford to sculpt all these heads so I went to the puppet guy and said, "It would be nice if we could take pictures of famous people and wrap them around these puppets." A South Park kind of quality, only more three-dimensional. So he developed this strange, beautiful origami to wrap these paper pictures around, and it looks pretty amazing.
After Moral Orel ended, what made you go forward with Frankenhole?
I kind of mentioned it half-heartedly to Nick Weidenfeld and he said, "Whoa, wait! That's a great idea!" And I didn't really get to the rest, and I'm like, "Really? I didn't think anyone would care about old-timey monsters." And he's like, "No, it's great! It's got time travel, it's got famous people. Fantastic!" Yeah, it was a pretty easy sell.
I'm actually very bad at pitching. When I pitched Moral Orel to Nick I was hungover probably. We started off having a very nice conversation and then I went into the pitch and I got the pages in my hands, and they're trembling. I'm really bad at pitching. He said, "Forget it! Just send me those pages." And he got the pages, read them, and picked up the show.
What episode do you think is going to be the most offensive or get the biggest reaction?
We have a very broad smorgasbord of offensiveness on the show. I hesitate to say because I don't want to spotlight any episode and make it a bullseye. We were very concerned about the Thomas Jefferson one. But we made some cuts and edits which I think helped a lot. We had interns and animators refuse to work on the show because of it. And I don't blame them. I think the way the show was-it was written by a couple of comedy guys who were just trying to get laughs and we became a little more socially conscious after that and scaled back on a lot of stuff.
Some people might be offended by the Barack Obama appearance in there. What's funniest about it, though, is the total non-attempt to impersonate his voice.
Well, I was just never concerned with any of the celebrity voices sounding so much like them. I do Mother Teresa as a screechy foreign woman that I'm sure isn't accurate.

Donald Glover "floored" by Spiderman support

Donald Glover sits down with MTV to discuss the overwhelming support he has received on his bid for the role of Spider Man.

MTV reports:
MTV News: Are you surprised by the "Spider-Man" support and how it blew up?
Donald Glover: I was floored. I was really floored. It literally started like, "Who doesn't want to play Spider-Man? That would be cool." The amount of support and people e-mailing me, calling me — I think that's really cool that people have that much faith in me. ... That's crazy that people were like, "Yeah, that guy would make a good Peter Parker." I think that's pretty cool, and I'm happy. It did come out of nowhere. I was very flattered.
MTV: The support has been coming not only from fans, but from people like Stan Lee and "Ultimate Spider-Man" author Brian Michael Bendis.
Glover: I was very surprised but also humbled. They didn't have to do that. Everybody could have been like, "I want to be Spider-Man." If you had gone back in time and told 8-year-old me that one day Stan Lee is going to call you a fine actor, I'd probably jump out a window. It's pretty cool. I'm wondering what he saw when he was like, "That guy's a fine actor."
MTV: Did you grow up a comics fan?
Glover: I was really into comic books as a kid. I used to make comic books when I was in first grade and sell them for a penny. I got in trouble for it, actually. I was always really into Spider-Man. I love his backstory of feeling responsible for his uncle's death.
MTV: Could all this grassroots support lead to an audition?
Glover: I really don't know. I haven't asked or anything like that. It's not something where I'm knocking on someone's door or anything like that. I think it's very cool that people want me to do it. I work for Sony. I'm a big fan of Spider-Man. I'm glad that people are talking about the new reboot because I think it's going to be awesome, regardless of whether I'm in it or not. Whatever happens, happens. I'm not vying for it.
MTV: But it's definitely been fun.
Glover: If the biggest thing that comes out of this is two "Spider-Man" fake covers with my face on them, that's way more than I could ever hope for.

"Alison Brie Loves Kissing Joel McHale!" New interview with Alison! has a great interview with Alison Brie where she gives us the scoop on what its like kissing Joel Mchale the secret of Starburns and where the Annie/Jeff relationship is going to go.

Alison Officially confirmed what Dan Harmon had hinted at about the DVD’s, that we will get commentaries’ on all 25 episodes and that Dan Harmon will be in them all!

Great news!

Here are a few highlights from the article:
Yeah, but what about kissing Joel?
[Laughter] I will say, on the record, that ... it ain't bad. Joel's definitely a good sport. I can see the headline now: "Alison Brie Loves Kissing Joel McHale!" I would say the guy's a good kisser because he's got a lot of practice. Basically any woman that comes on the show eventually kisses Joel McHale. He's been around the block, ya know [laughs].

Star-Burns (Dino Stamatopoulos), what's his secret?
Dino's one of our writers and he sort of got thrown into the part, originally. It's a character that people have just grown to love, and I think Dino likes playing it more now. In the beginning, I think he felt like he sort of fell into this role. I don't think he knew how big it was going to be. Luckily, he likes to keep a beard anyway, so I think the star burns kind of get lost in the beard and when it's time, he'll just shave them again. He's getting really good at shaving those stars. I think for a while, he was the most recognizable person on the show, other than Joel and Chevy [Chase].

Were you really in a 'Hannah Montana' episode?
I was! It was my first TV job out of college. It was the first season of 'Hannah Montana,' so before all the hype or before Miley Cyrus blew up. So, I had no idea what it was, I was just, 'Yea, I booked a Disney show' and I get to work for a couple days. I had no idea where it was gonna go.

Thanks to Steven at for the tip!

The "Rock Star" Career of Chevy Chase

Drew McWeeny of writes an in depth and quite honest and fair overview of the Career of Chevy Chase. In the article McWeeny reviews the “Rock star” start of Chevy’s Career and the good and bad of the star’s films.

McWeeny writes:
…he was huge. He was rock star huge. He had three movies out in 1980, and you could argue that he managed to aim for three totally different audiences with the films. "Oh Heavenly Dog" was aimed squarely at kids, at the audience that had been carefully cultivated by the Benji brand. "Caddyshack" was aimed at adolescents of all ages. And "Seems Like Old Times" was a mainstream Neil Simon comedy that reunited him with Goldie Hawn, aimed squarely at the general adult audience. And all three of them worked for those audiences. You don't see comic leads doing that today, making choices that diverse, one on top of another like that. Today, comic actors tend to aim at a certain audience as much as possible. Working non-stop, though, was dangerous because not every script worked, and it seemed like Chase's agents were more concerned with exposure than with any sort of quality control.

McWeeny continues exploring the disastrous year that was 1981 with films like “Modern Problems” and “Under the Rainbow,” and then continues about 1983’s “National Lampoon’s Vacation” and it’s eventual sequels…
…in 1983, he made "National Lampoon's Vacation," one of the very best things he's ever done. In that first movie, I think Clark Griswold is arguably the best character Chevy's ever been given to play. I empathize with Clark, deeply, and I love that in the first film, the Griswolds are the center of the comic storm, victims of fate and circumstance, and Chevy in particular is playing a comic Job variation that I find enormously appealing. It's a great blistering R-rated comedy, with a sharp script by John Hughes and a perfect sense of how families implode when stuck together on road trips. Set piece after set piece, character after character, "Vacation" works because it was a great piece of material on the page, and then it was executed well. As obvious as that sounds, so few of the films in Chase's filmography started from a really solid piece of writing, and that's probably the biggest mistake he or any of the "SNL" actors ever made... that willingness to start shooting something that didn't have a script that was ready yet. Compare the first "Vacation" which came out of real experience and sincere observation with "National Lampoon's European Vacation" two years later, which was a mean-spirited, ugly, garish piece of crap. It makes the fundamental mistake of recasting the Griswolds as victimizers instead of victims. Europe doesn't happen to the Griswolds; the Griswolds happen to Europe. Like the plague. Even the better-but-not-as-good-as-the-first-one "Christmas Vacation" suffers because they decided to tone it down to a PG-13 while basically just aping the best parts of the first film.

Reviewing many of Chevy’s career disappointments McWeeny praises Chase’s recent work on Community:
Right now, Chevy does genuinely funny work every week on "Community," a show that has gotten better and better over the first year it's been on the air. The writers have created a deranged, perverted, racist idiot for him to play, and it's the most likeable he's been in years. I'd like to think that the Chevy Chase who burned down the goodwill of audiences and his co-stars and his creative collaborators finally had to change, and that the Chevy who stars on "Community" is a newly reformed Chevy, a Chevy who loves what he does again and who is open to more filmmakers trying different or risky things with him. Like I said, I've been a fan for so long that I hate hearing terrible things about him. I want to believe the best of Chevy Chase. I want to see more from him that reminds me of what made me laugh in the first place. I will always have a soft spot for him.
After all, he's Chevy Chase. And I'm not.

The article is amazingly in depth and quite fair. Check out the full article here:

Alison Brie gives us new Sex positions! Video from funny or die:

Needless to say this is probably not "appropriate" for work.

From Funny or Die:
The Committee Ep 1: Bad Dog w/ Alison Brie & Rich Sommer
Every year, the U.S. Patents Office copyrights 57 new sex acts. Who gets those patents is decided by Mr. Stevens and Mrs. Davis - collectively known as The Committee. In each episode, a different hopeful pitches to the Department of Amatory Copyright in the hope that their imaginative new sex act will become this years' Alabama Hot Pocket

Donald Glover for Spiderman update!:

It seems this Spiderman movie is getting ugly with the list of possible actors getting longer and longer.

In addition to our favorite Donald Glover the other names added to Sony and Marc Webb’s short list are Jamie Bell; Andrew Garfield; Alden Ehrenreich; Frank Dillane; and Josh Hutcherson and now Kick Ass star Aaron Johnson and Anton Yelchin, from Terminator: Salvation and Star Trek have been added.  Supposedly Jamie Bell is the front-runner.

Many comic book artist and writers have weighed in on the subject many in support of Donald Glover.  In fact Artist Chris DiBari and Chris Walker just finished this amazing piece of artwork showing Donald as Spidey!

This is what they had to say:
“Donald Glover owns on Community! I think he’ll be the next big thing very soon. I had a lot of fun working on the piece.”- Chris DiBari
“Community is hands down one the best shows on TV and Donald always delivers as Troy. When I heard about ‘Donald for Spider-Man’ I hit up DiBari to jam on a piece together because we’re both big fans of the show!”- Chris Walker
Even the great Stan Lee creator of Spiderman chimed in by talking about Donald to MTV:
 "He's a great actor. I've seen him, and he's terrific," Lee said when asked what he thought of Glover.
"A lot of my Twitter followers have been saying that he ought to have a chance to audition for the role. So I tweeted back by saying, as far as I'm concerned ... anybody should have a chance to audition for the role. I certainly think he should have a chance to audition."
"Everybody seems to be familiar with Spider-Man, so I say that it isn't that it's a racial issue - it's just that it might be confusing to people. But that's a matter for the people at Marvel to take into consideration. I certainly don't want to weigh in on it in any way, except to say I think Glover is a fine actor."
Fingers crossed everybody.  Keep checking back! And Check out these articles for more:

Ken Jeong in Twilight?

Well not really.  It seems the spoof guys are at it again.  This time it is a spoof of... you guessed it, Vampire movies.  Apparently the film is being filmed and rushed out this summer!


The 3,574-th send-up of the genre series will be cobbled together by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, better known as the unfunny pair of spoofsters behind Date Movie, Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans, and the aptly-titled Disaster Movie.
Jeong supporting actor on NBC’s hilarious comedy series “Community” and the nemesis of The Hangover.  But despite his comedic qualifications, the 40-year-old actor will be wading through the same stagnant material we’ve may have laughed at two years ago.
Expect the same recycled bits about intense staring, Robert Pattinson’s hair, and Kristen Stewart’s lip-biting.  That’s just the Twilight gags.  I’m sure it’ll be packed with corny jokes about “True Blood” and “Vampire Diaries” too.  Don’t forget other dated references like Lady Gaga, Sarah Palin, and Tiger Woods.  Oh, and lots of scatological humor.
What’s surprising is the movie is scheduled for this August 18 (a Wednesday), which speaks volumes about the quality of a movie coming together two months before its theatrical date.  That’s already a crowded weekend, but the spoof could benefit from the long tail of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which bows June 30.  Or, you know, it could bomb.
I might just wait for the Hangover 2!

And the Winner is Ken Jeong!

Not only did Ken Jeong just win “Best WTF moment” for his performance in The Hangover, this weekend at the MTV movie Awards he had the most sentimental speech at the awards show.  People magazine has the story where he thanks his wife who was battling breast cancer at the time of the filming for making him do the film. 

From People online:
Ken Jeong, who famously played the naked crime lord in The Hangover, was a scene-stealer again Sunday at the MTV Movie Awards, honoring his wife's battle against breast cancer with a moving tribute and tears onstage and backstage. 
"Todd [Phillips] and Bradley Cooper ... helped me through a really difficult time when my wife was going through breast-cancer treatment," an emotional Jeong, 40, said in accepting the award for Best WTF Moment. "The reason why I did this is that she taught me that life is short, and don't be afraid to take chances." 
Jeong's wife Tran, who has been cancer free for two years, beamed from her seat inside the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles
Tears welled up again backstage as Jeong talked more about his wife, with whom he has twin daughters Alexa and Zooey. "She is the brave one and just my best friend, my inspiration," he said. "I'm just really grateful. ... I was just celebrating her. This whole night is about celebrating her."

Donald Glover and Danny Pudi on not making eye contact with Annie’s Boobs!

While in Canada doing press for the show Danny Pudi and Donald Glover showed up at CityTV in matching outfits where they discussed Twitter, Community and Annie’s boobs!

“How do you like working on the show?” garners the following response;

Pudi: We’re on hiatus right now and we go back to work in July, so we have a month and a half of playtime, I guess. But once we’re shooting –

Glover: We’re just shooting. Usually 14 hour, 15 hour days.  It’s shot single camera, so it’s not like you just come in on Friday and bang it out in front of a live audience. It’s shot like a movie and they’re really into making it feel like a movie. And there’s a lot of us! It’s not like there’s just two people.

Pudi: Early on, when the show started, there was a group scene in the study room. And we realized it took a long time, like a full day or maybe two days to do the study room scene. And we were like, “I wonder if we’re going to be doing this every episode?”

Glover: And we have! We’ve been doing it every episode. But it is this thing where you walk into that room on Monday morning and you’re like, well, I’m going to be here all day.

Pudi: And you also don’t know what the wild card is going to be that day. Like, OK, here comes Chevy (Chase) with a goat.

Glover: Or a baby.

Pudi: You’re feeding a monkey. Don’t make eye contact. And we’re rolling!

Glover: The monkey episode, they literally were just like, “OK, so, this monkey’s going to be on your shoulder.” And I was like, “Is it? Really?” It’s a wild animal, with the sharpest teeth. I was terrified.

Pudi: And whenever anyone ever says to you, “There’s one rule and one rule only: don’t make eye contact.” Somebody has broken that rule!

Alison Brie and Yvette Nicole Brown talk Community and income!

While on the promotion trip to Canada CityTV was able to catch up with Yvette Nicole Brown and Alison Brie for a quick interview where they discuss the atmosphere of the set and just what they are doing with the steady income!  There’s even a little hint of what we can look forward to on the upcoming DVD!

Brie: It’s such a fun atmosphere, it’s incredible. I wonder if people sometimes think that we’re lying because we’re always, like, “It’s so much fun!” It’s –

Brown: It’s like a playground.

Brie: That’s what I always equate it to. Wild kids –

Brown: On a playground.

Brie: Because we go nuts. We get a little batty. Silly.

Brown: Naughty! The thing is, everybody is funny in a different way, and everybody enjoys making each other laugh.

Brie: And even though we have different styles of comedy that we work with, I think our senses of humour –

Brown: Are identical.

Brie: Which is a good thing, because on our set, I feel like some of the things we say are so out there –

Brown: You giggle. We work really long hours, but –

Brie: It’s worth it –

Brown: Because we’re all together and it’s a great time.

Brie: It doesn’t feel long. 

Despite the long hours, the cast has multiple projects on the go. Brie has a recurring role as Trudy Campbell on Mad Men, and Brown is in the process of making a television cartoon.  Community was picked up for a second season, which means both actors are now slightly pickier about the projects they choose.

“It’s no longer doing jobs because you have to. My mortgage will be paid now,” Brown says.
“It’s as steady as an income as any of us have ever had,” Brie agrees.

Like Pudi and Glover, Brown and Brie are both active on Twitter.

“I realized the other day that I have 8,000 tweets, and that’s mostly me responding, going “thank you,”” Brown said.

“And I promote the crap out of Community online. Everybody Thursday, I’m like tweeting like crazy,” she added.

There are other benefits too.

“It’s so cool, the immediacy of Twitter. You really have a sense of, oh, people liked this episode. People watched this episode. It’s easy to get bogged down with ratings and networks and all this business stuff that’s really out of our control. It’s nice to have this one place, this one forum, where it’s all about the episode,” Brie said.

Those episodes will be available on DVD this summer.

Brown: It’s the whole first season, with extras and bloopers and –

Brie: I hope they give tons of extras because I can’t even tell you – 

Brown: The funny stuff that doesn’t make it. 

Alison Brie on being one of the sexiest women alive!

Alison and some of the Community gang were just in Canada promoting Community and she had a chance for a quick interview with the Edmonton sun. In the interview she talked about her experience cracking the Maxim hot 100 and explained her plans to climb the charts for next year!

“When you say ‘cracked’, you ain’t jokin,’ ” Brie said with a laugh. “I will remind you, I was No. 99 on the list. So I just made it. Maybe next year when I’m No. 94, then I really can start to diva it up on set.
“I got some tips on it, actually. Olivia Munn, who was No. 8 this year and is a friend of mine, gave me some tips on how to work your way up the Maxim Hot 100 list. The tips are totally secret, I’m not sharing them with anyone. You’ll have to see next year if it’s working.
“It’ll be like watching your favourite song climb the charts - one of the most important charts in the history of mankind.”

Alison Brie Returns to Mad Men and scoops about Community too!

Get ready Alison fans! EW’s Eric Ausiello caught up with her on the red carpet and nabbed a few spoilers about her return to Mad Men and the second season of Community!

From the

Alison on her return to Mad Men:
“To go back to Mad Men this summer after eight months of constant work on Community playing just about the opposite character was really daunting,” she conceded. “I was very nervous I’d forgotten how to be Trudy. But then you put on the clothes and get the hair done and it is like you never left. Welcome back to the ’60s. Without prodding, I’m like, ‘The pot roast is ready!’” Um, pot roast?! There’s going to be a pot roast in season 4?! Reminded of Mad Men creator Matt Weiner’s strict no-spoiler policy, Brie faux backtracked. “Uh oh… I may get fired now,” she joked. “Great. S–t. Thank God we got a second season of Community. But maybe I don’t make a pot roast. You never know. Maybe I’m just saying that to send you down the wrong scoop path. Insert evil laugh.” Insert me saying I love this woman!

Alison on Community season 2:
Ausiello: As much as Allison Brie loved the cliff-hangery Annie-Jeff smooch, she’s worried about the havoc it could wreak in season 2. “It is a bit of a controversial thing,” she acknowledged. “I do think that she and Jeff have a special connection, but it may behoove them to just stay friends. I don’t like that it puts Annie and Britta’s relationship in jeopardy and could threaten the group dynamic. I hope that Annie and Britta are not enemies at any point next year. I have faith that it won’t get too soap opera-y. I don’t think I will be killing Britta’s dad who turns out to be my dad also but then I get amnesia and you realize it is my evil twin that did the whole thing.” Am I alone in thinking that, if done right, that could be an awesome story?
