Last week, Funny or Die posted a bunch of “Walking Dead” memes. I guffawed my way through them earlier today, and the following five were just begging to be shared:
That’s what the word has been around the blog-o-sphere lately.
It seems a bit of an odd pairing, seeing as how Adam Levine has never technically acted before. Why would he start with “American Horror Story”?
Well, in my professional opinion, take a look at the (somewhat) resemblance between Mr. Levine and Dylan McDermott, the star of the show’s first season.
Pretty freaky huh? Not particularly. They both have brown hair and a five o’clock shadow. But, I predict that if the casting choice does go through, season two of “American Horror Story” will be all about an alternate universe where Kate Mara’s psycho character actually survived, gave birth to Ben’s bastard child and we fast forward 25 years into the future. Boom. Adam Levine will play Kate Mara and Dylan McDermott’s love child.
Just you wait. Come October when the show’s second season premieres, you will remember this moment.
If you’re following me on Twitter, (and if you’re not, you should be!) you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been mentioning “The Walking Dead” at least once a day for the past week and a half or so.
No, it’s not to annoy you… it’s just because I’m so freakin’ excited for the season two premiere tonight!
The first season was much too short, and the wait between the last episode and now was much too long. But alas, tonight I shall be reunited with my favorite show chock full of zombies and all things creepy.
For now, check out this five minute trailer for season two of “The Walking Dead:”
In related news, “The Walking Dead” season one 3-disc special edition was recently released, and it’s chock full of scream worthy special features. I’m writing my letter to Santa as we speak…
Unveiled today, this season’s “The Walking Dead” poster bares an eerie resemblance to the first season’s.
See for yourself:
Before, Rick was on horseback and surrounded by an abandoned freeway. Now, he’s even more isolated. Let the theories begin.
It feels like it’s been years since “The Walking Dead” premiered, even though it was less than 12 months ago.
Get ready to mark your calendars, die hard zombie fans! The second season premiere is a 90-minute episode that will air on AMC on Oct. 16.
The only bad news about this season? It will be broken into two parts. The first seven episodes will begin on Oct. 16, and after quite a break, the last six will start up again on Feb. 12.
Who’s excited for season two?!
Fall is by far my favorite season. Cozy scarves, crunchy leaves, pumpkin spice lattes, Halloween… I could go on.
This fall, there is also plenty to look forward to entertainment-wise. I give you the top 10 things I’m looking forward to in the autumn months:
“The New Girl”
A prime-time comedy starring my girl crush, Zooey Deschanel? Yes, please. In “Girl,” Deschanel portrays Jessica Day, a quirky woman who moves in with three single guys. Comedic hijinks ensue.
Catch “The New Girl” when it premieres on FOX on Sept. 20, or download it a week early on iTunes.
Ryan Gosling stars as a stuntman who moonlights as a getaway car driver. After a robbery gone wrong, he finds himself in serious danger.
“Drive” hits theaters on Sept. 16.
A remake of the 1971 original starring Dustin Hoffman, this time James Marsden and Kate Bosworth get terrorized by some locals after relocating to the deep South.
“Straw Dogs” opens on Sept. 16.
Initially, the pairing of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogan seemed a little odd to me. Especially in a depressing (maybe somehow uplifting?) film about a man with cancer. However, it’s growing on me each time I see the trailer.
Go see “50/50” on Sept. 30.
“2 Broke Girls”
Perhaps this will turn out to be just another typical, not-so funny sitcom, or maybe it will be a hidden gem. I’m looking for a show to replace “One Tree Hill” until it comes back in January, so hopefully this will fit the bill.
“2 Broke Girls” premieres on CBS Sept. 19.
“Up All Night”
Another sit-com, but I have a feeling this one will actually be funny. It stars SNL’s Maya Rudolph and Will Arnett, as well as Christina Applegate.
Catch it when it premieres on NBC on Sept. 14.
When I first saw this trailer, I laughed. I probably laughed the first 20 times I saw it (so many times due to work, not by choice). But after the 35th time, it started growing on me. It stars Hugh Jackman as a retired boxer who teaches a robot, “ADAM!,” to fight.
It hits theaters on Oct. 7.
“The Thing” and “Paranormal Activity 3”
I chose to lump these two together because a) there are lots of things I’m looking forward to and b) they’re both horror movies. Hopefully “The Thing” lives up to John Carpenter’s 1982 original. As for “Paranormal Activity 3,” a prequel with creepy children is always a smart move in terms of box-office sales.
“The Thing” hits theaters Oct. 14; “Paranormal Activity 3” on Oct. 21.
“The Rum Diary”
Based on Hunter S. Thompson’s novel of the same name, it stars Johnny Depp as Paul Kemp, a boozy journalist writing for a Caribbean newspaper.
Catch “The Rum Diary” on Oct. 28.
Halloweekends at Cedar Point
Maybe this technically doesn’t count as “entertainment,” but it’s going to be pretty entertaining for me. I’ve never been to Cedar Point, and I’m going for Halloween. With the group I’m going with, I know it will be nothing but crazy fun.
If you’re a hardcore “Walking Dead” fan like myself, I’m sure your heart was crushed when you heard the show wouldn’t be back for its second season until Oct. 2011.
Towards the end of December, AMC released the following clip detailing some thoughts on the second season from the show’s cast and creators:Vodpod videos no longer available.
They also informed us that “The Walking Dead” wouldn’t be back until October of this year. However, on Dec. 20, fellow AMC star Bryan Cranston of “Breaking Bad,” told NYMag that both shows were likely to make a comeback in July, not October.
My fingers are crossed that Cranston has his facts straight, but either way, I can’t wait for season two.
Mark your calendars, people.
Robert De Niro, Paul Rudd and Jeff Bridges are all hosting an episode of “Saturday Night Live” during the month of December.
De Niro kicks things off on Dec. 4 with Diddy as the night’s musical guest. Rudd will host Dec. 11 with Paul McCartney (yay!) and Bridges on Dec. 18 with Eminem (weird pairing alert).
Regardless, I’m excited for all of them! Paul Rudd is one of the most underrated comedians in Hollywood, Jeff Bridges is the dude, and come on… De Niro? No explanation necessary.
This performance from the latest episode of “Glee” is just the definition of precious.
And the singer, Darren Criss, is an ’09 graduate of my rival school, U of M.
Suddenly I’m not so opposed…
In honor of the premiere of Conan O’Brien’s new show tonight, Paste Magazine has compiled a list titled “A Dozen of Conan O’Brien’s Best Moments,” which are pretty spot on.
I made a similar list after seeing his live show in May. Check out my list here, and be sure to tune in to “Conan” tonight at 11 p.m. on TBS!
