Ezra Miller May Play Another Character With a Funny Name in ‘Harry Potter’ Spinoff

By

Gotta love beasts. They’re fantastic — at least, if you can find them. Luckily, the new Harry Potter spinoff film is based on the mini-made-for-charity pseudo-textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them — which will, if its title doesn’t betray us, feature some fantastic beasts, and, as if that weren’t enough, their locations. As we now know, it’ll also feature Eddie Redmayne and Katherine Waterston playing non-beasts.

6 Actors Who Actually Should Play Rivers Cuomo in His Fox Sitcom ‘Detour’

By

Yesterday it was announced that Detour, the Fox sitcom based on Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo‘s Harvard studies during the height of the band’s fame, had found its leading man in an exceedingly hot British actor with abs. He has a name, obviously: Ben Aldridge. He sounds like a great guy and all, and he’s done some solid work for the BBC (Our Girl), but he’s no Cuomo. I mean…

Flavorwire Interview: ‘Comedy Bang! Bang!’ Host Scott Aukerman on Season 2 and ‘Between Two Ferns’

By

Comedy Bang! Bang! may very well be one of the weirdest things on television — an absurdist talk show parody with sketch elements, cheerfully hosted by Scott Aukerman and sidekick/bandleader Reggie Watts. The show has gone through numerous name changes and iterations, starting out as a live stage show, then becoming a popular podcast, and finally landing on IFC, where its 20-episode second season premieres Friday. I talked with the very busy Mr. Aukerman — who not only created and hosts the show, but co-founded the podcast network that runs it — about the evolution of the show, what’s new in Season 2, and how he helped create the web phenomenon that is Between Two Ferns.
