Tim Allen's New Pilot Is Shaping Up

Filed under: TV News

Allen Pilot Lands Hector

We can't wait to see Tim Allen's triumphant return to television, that's for sure!

Home Improvement was pretty unbeatable, so we're hoping Allen's new untitled comedy pilot will be at least as good!

With the way things are shaping up, we don't see why it couldn't be!

Allen's pilot has just had Hector Elizondo, from Grey's and Chicago Hope added to the cast which includes Nancy Travis!

Here's what Hector will play:

The veteran TV actor will play Allen’s boss Ed in the comedy that stars the ex-Home Improvement star as a traditionally manly man in a progressive world.

Hmmm, that last little bit about Allen's character actually sounds similar to Tim in Home Improvement!

Dare we dream??

LOLz!

Best of luck, Hector and Tim!

Hanks and Allen! Tom And Tim Together Again?

Filed under: DisneyTom HanksOscars

Tom And Tim To Team Up

Yeah, we realize that title sort of rhymes! Go us!

LOLz

So, after a shizz ton of money and a best picture nom for Toy Story 3, why wouldn't Disney be looking for more ways to pair up that fantastic duo of Tom Hanks and Tim Allen??

What's the new movie that might do just that?!

This:

Jungle Cruise, the live action film inspired by the venerable Magic Kingdom theme park ride. The studio has hired Roger S.H. Schulman to write a script that's being produced by Mandeville's David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, who themselves are coming off a Best Picture nomination for The Fighter. No director yet.

Sounds like a great team so far!

We're willing to bet that even if it didn't turn out so awesome, that the pairing of these two alone will be enough for it to make a KILLING at the box office!!

Tom, Tim! Stop by and say hi!

Will U choose to see Jungle Cruise??

Judd Apatow Bites Back At Ricky Gervais!

judd-apatow-vs-ricky-gervais-golden-globes-hosting-performance

We guess people are STILL sour about Ricky Gervais' recent hosting gig at the Golden Globe Awards!

Although a fair amount of celebrities have come to the support of the comedian, who shocked many with his brutal digs at everyone from Tim Allen to Robert Downey, Jr. at the awards ceremony, director Judd Apatow was surprisingly not too happy with the material, and bit back BIG TIME while hosting the Producers Guild Awards over the weekend!

He reportedly said:

“What did you think of Ricky Gervais? I didn’t like him. I thought he was mean. He had that joke about the guy on Lost. He said he ate everybody else. Let’s be honest — Ricky Gervais just lost weight. Even now he’s four pounds away from not being allowed to do a joke like that. Did he lose weight just to make fat jokes? You think that’s how mean he is?"

"I think (Charlie Sheen) he’s an OK target. The people at CBS have said as long as he shows up on time, knows his lines, he can do whatever he wants."

“(Gervais) says the characters were two-dimensional. Then he says he hasn’t seen The Tourist. So as a comedian, that’s not fair, is it? To make jokes about a movie you haven’t seen. I can’t do a joke about (Gervais’s movie) The Invention of Lying because I haven’t seen it. You haven’t seen it. None of us have seen it. So the joke would not work.”

"(Gervais) made a joke about Tim Allen who was standing next to Tom Hanks. Who looks good standing next to Tom Hanks? We all look like a piece of shit standing next to Tom Hanks. Warren Buffet would look like a piece of shit next to Tom Hanks. Tim Allen did 200 episodes of Home Improvement. He was in three of the highest grossing movies of all time. And his latest just crossed the one billion mark. Whereas The Invention Of Lying made $18 million dollars worldwide…leave Tim Allen alone.”

Damn! He really thought this one through, didn't he?!

As much as we can sort of see why everyone is so up in arms - some of the jokes definitely DID push the limits, albeit HIGHlariously - we definitely think that by continuing to talk about it, Ricky is just getting more press, and in the end, winning!

Seriously, though! We're shocked as to why so many people are shocked about this - did they really expect anything different from his material?

Whatevs! Time to let this one go, folks!

Live and learn! LOLz!

Thoughts??

Ricky Gervais Gets His Blog On, Defends Himself

ricky gervais defends himself via blog

Ricky Gervais has gone to his blog to defend his Golden Globes hosting performance.

As we've said before, you get exactly what you pay for with Ricky. It'd be pretty naive to hire him and expect the comedian to play it safe.

Here's what Ricky had to say on his blog in his defense:

"Obviously the rumour that the organisers stopped me going out on stage for an hour is rubbish. All the same conspiracy theories as last year too…'so and so was offended'…'hasn't been invited back yet'…exactly the same as last time. 'Paul McCartney was furious'…no he wasn't. And nor was Tim Allen and Tom Hanks. I was drinking with them after."

"I did every link I was scheduled to do. The reason why the gaps were uneven is because when I got the rundown I was allowed to choose who I presented to, [and I chose] the spots that I had the best gags for."

"I enjoyed the Globes more this year. I think I had better gags. More along the lines of the Mel Gibson one last year."

We believe U, Ricky! Why would Tim Allen and Tom Hanks take offense, anyway?

Tom Hanks is Tom Hanks…enough said, and Tim Allen was in Toy Story 3…he's doing just fine for himself!

Do U think celebs are legitimately angry with Ricky Gervais?

Tim Allen To Return To TV?

Filed under: TV News

This is where we'd write the signature Tim Allen grunt with a question mark after it, if we had any clue how to express it in written form!

To make up for it, we've included a video (above) with some of Tim Allen's classic grunt noises, which you may get to see again on TV in 2011.

Sources say that Tim Allen has been taking meetings with sitcom writer-producers, including Greg Daniels, of The Office and Parks and Recreation fame.

It'd be nice to see non-Buzz Lightyear Tim Allen make a comeback. He NEEDS one after he made that movie Crazy On The Outside, which NOBODY watched, and which was released on DVD and Blu-Ray exclusively at douchebagland Target.

Would U watch a new Tim Allen sitcom?

Dancing With The Stars: The Stars That Passed On The Show!

dancingwithexpendablese.jpg

We give you credit for putting yourself out there, DWTS!

Before they were able to land their current roster of dancers for the upcoming season, which includes Jersey Shore’s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Dancing With The Stars was rejected by many people.

Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook, was approached by the show, but he passed. They should have checked his profile first to see if DWTS was in his "Favorite TV Shows" section on his Facebook page.

Sylvester Stallone was also approached about doing the show. He declined the offer, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the offer spurred an idea in his head for his own show. Dancing With The Former Action Stars? Who wouldn’t want to see Dolph Lundgren let loose on stage?

DWTS was also rejected by Ann Coulter, Condoleeza Rice, Julia Roberts the real Erin Brockovich, Richard Branson, Suzanne Somers, Kirstie Alley no duh, and Joel McHale.

We’re not really sure why Tim Allen and Drew Carey declined the offer though. Tim Allen’s got nothing better to do, other than hang around and pray that they decide to make Toy Story 4. As for Drew Carey, he’s in the best shape of his life! He should totally do the show!

Would U go on Dancing With The Stars if they invited you?

Stallone Contemplates Rambo Rocky Expendables Sequel

stalloneaug2e.jpg

If Sylvester Stallone makes an Expendables sequel, will Van Damme and Seagal snub him again?

The Expendables opens this weekend, and if it performs well at the Box Office, Stallone has thoughts on a sequel:

"If this does perform, I think it will open a little more liquidity in funding the sequel. I have an idea ready to go. People think doing a sequel is easy, but it's not because you need the element of surprise. I'm going to try to do something that's quite radical."

We’re curious what his radical element of surprise would be in this sequel. In the first movie, the hook is an all-action movie star cast. Perhaps in the sequel, he’ll assemble a team of mercenaries, all of whom will be played by comedians.

Would U like to see Bill Murray, Robin Williams, Dane Cook, Tim Allen, and Bill Cosby fight bad guys?

And yes, we understand that the Cos hasn’t been in a movie in years, but if they could get Schwarzenegger out of retirement…
