Netflix is treating themselves to some Aziz Ansari!

It's been announced that the Parks & Recreation alum is heading over to the streaming service to star in an untitled comedy series, which he is co-creating with Parks & Rec executive producer Alan Yang!

The series is currently filming in New York, and stars a slew of comedians — including H. Jon Benjamin, Dear White People's Lena Waithe, Tim & Eric's Eric Wareheim, and Saturday Night Live actors Noel Wells and Kelvin Yu!

The 32-year-old has a great working relationship with the streaming service, since he already has two Netflix original specials, Buried Alive and Live At Madison Square Garden. Details about the new show are still under wraps, but it's being reported that the project is semi-autobiographical and deals with dating and relationships.

The premise doesn't sound too original right off the bat, but the comedian hasn't let us down yet!

Will U be watching Aziz's new comedy?

Suddenly Jake Gyllenhaal!

Jake Gyllenhaal's only 34 year old and he's already an Oscar nominated actor, so it seems as though he's changed his passions from the screen to the stage!

That's because after making his Broadway debut in Constellations opposite Ruth Wilson back in January, Jake is taking his talents back to New York to star in Little Shop of Horrors.

The cult favorite is being produced by Encores! Off-Center and will be the actor's first time starring in a musical, so we're really anxious to see how it plays out!

The name's cookie, take a bite!

By now, it's obvious that Taraji P. Henson can do no wrong, but that fact was just reinforced over the weekend as she hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time in her 18-year career!

While the sketches themselves weren't the greatest we've ever seen, Taraji did prove that she can hang with the best of SNL's players — the best being Kate McKinnon and Taran Killam.

And speaking of Kate, the star of the up-and-coming Ghostbusters reboot helmed the episode's best bit, the Hillary Clinton-inspired cold-open!

In Case You Missed It… Norman Reedus Brought His Walking Dead Sexiness To SNL's Weekend Update!

| Filed under: TV NewsSaturday Night LiveFunnyThe Walking Dead

Your Reaction?

Norman Reedus is always ready with his crossbow, just like his character Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead!

During SNL's Weekend Update, cast member Pete Davidson was talking with host Colin Jost, explaining his fears about The Walking Dead. No, he's not afraid of the TV show itself, he's afraid of being mistaken for a "walker" when the actual zombie apocalypse happens!

[ Related: Walking Dead Spinoff First Look HERE! ]

Basically, Pete Davidson likes to smoke quality weed, and when he smokes that dope, his eyes get bloodshot, he moves slowly, and he's hunched over and shuffling everywhere. He's pretty much a zombie.

Colin did what he could to calm Pete down and assure him no one would mistake him for a zombie. Enter Daryl Dixon and his crossbow, coming in out of nowhere to save the day!!

Norman Reedus was a surprise guest on SNL and it was hilarious!! Watch out, Pete!!

Check out the video (above) to see Daryl Dixon make a Weekend Update cameo!
