Jack McBrayer and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog to Team Up for a New Comedy Series on Adult Swim
Adult Swim has recently announced that they are planning to bring together actor Jack McBrayer and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog for a new, currently untitled, buddy comedy series that would be added to their 2014-2015 programming schedule. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “unlike most everything in the Adult Swim live-action roster, it will air as a half-hour.”
UNTITLED TRIUMPH/MCBRAYER SITCOM – Jack (McBrayer) is a former child star of a popular Lassie-type series that ran in the ’80s and ’90s. After it was cancelled, his crude but beloved co-star (Triumph) spiraled into decadence and got Jack in trouble with him. 15 years later, with Jack finally self-sufficient, happy, and away from show business, Triumph finds his way back into Jack’s life. This new half-hour live-action comedy series is created by Robert Smigel (SNL, TV Funhouse, Conan), Michael Koman (Eagleheart, Nathan For You) and David Feldman (Real Time, Dennis Miller Live), starring Emmy®-nominee Jack McBrayer (30 Rock) and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog (Conan), produced by Poochie Doochie Productions and Universal Television.

Season 2 interviews from Comic con 2014
Chris Parnell promises that one episode in the next season of Rick and Morty will be especially punishing for the show’s animators. The 30 Rock veteran teased an upcoming episode in the Adult Swim animated series’ second season which would be packed with “scenes within scenes within scenes” – far beyond the typical craziness you expect in a show about an alcoholic grandpa and his space-time adventures with his dimwitted grandson.
Parnell, who plays “Jerry” on the series, was joined by co-star Spencer Grammer (“Summer”) to talk with our own Malik Forte about the often surreal and sometimes sweet show co-created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland.
While Adult Swim hasn’t officially provided a date for season two, we can probably expect it sometime next spring.
Who will live? Who will die? Will there ever be anything as great as “Rixty Minutes” in season two? Find out in this interview.

New VICE PRINCIPALS Ad Reveals Bill Murray as the Old Boss
We were already excited for HBO‘s upcoming new comedy Vice Principals, in which Danny McBride and Walton Goggins play two competing, totally inappropriate high school administrators vying to be the new head of their school at any cost, before the latest promo.
Then this new commercial revealed that Bill Murray himself is playing the outgoing principal, and only now do we know what true excitement is. In this short ad, that we first saw at the AV Club, Murray’s outgoing principal tells the two potential replacements that he “could give a damn whoever it is” that will take his spot.
“It’s all about the students; it’s not about you two.”
If you’ve seen any of the trailers for the show, you know McBride’s Neal Gamby and Goggin’s Lee Russell do not look like they are going to take that advice to heart. Heck, Vice Principal Gamby couldn’t get through this conversation without taking a dig at Russell. “It’s very wise. I get it. I mean it might take a little while for it to sink in with this one here.” Murray’s part on the show might be limited to this one episode (his role is not even listed on IMDB as of yet), but no matter, we’ll take whatever Bill Murray we can get. It’ll also be fun to see him be the responsible one for once.
The show premieres this summer on July 17th, and has an 18-episode run first season.

David Huddleston, Who Played ‘The Big Lebowski,’ Dies at 85
David Huddleston, a noted character actor who was most famously known for the titular role in “The Big Lebowski” died Tuesday at 85. His wife, Sarah Koeppe, told the Los Angeles Times that he died of kidney and lung disease in Santa Fe, N.M.
Huddleston’s character in the 1998 “The Big Lebowski” epitomized the types of characters he was known for — big dons or capos and tempestuous men. Although he is in only a few scenes in the film, he crosses paths with Jeff Bridges’ Lebowski character, aka “The Dude,” after a group of gang members attack “The Dude” mistaking him for Huddleston’s millionaire Lebowski. Though the film was not a hit when it first premiered, it has since become a huge cult sensation with a devoted fan base.
Before he was cast as the Big Lebowski, he guest starred on several TV shows, including “Walker Texas Ranger,” “Murder, She Wrote,” “Gilmore Girls” and “The West Wing” and had a recurring role as the grandfather on “The Wonder Years.” His film credits include the title role in 1985’s “Santa Claus: The Movie,” “Capricorn One,” “Blazing Saddles” and “The Producers.”
His wife told the L.A. Times that he considered his “crowning achievement” to be the role of Benajmin Franklin in the 1997 Broadway production of “1776.”
Born in Vinton, Va., he served in the Air Force and then studied acting in New York on the G.I. Bill.
Huddleston is survived by his wife.

Watch Jeff Bridges Revive ‘Big Lebowski’ Character ‘The Dude’ at John Goodman’s Walk of Fame Ceremony
Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski was brought back to life on Hollywood Boulevard, but this time, he was the one who delivered a eulogy for a friend, and it ended with “Good afternoon, sweet prince,” rather than good night.
At John Goodman’s Walk of Fame ceremony, Jeff Bridges donned “The Dude’s” signature, quirky, knit sweater, and delivered a typically rambling and hilarious rendition of the eulogy that*Walter reads over Donny’s grave in the 1998 Coen Brothers cult classic “The Big Lebowski.”
Bridges asked Goodman to hold his suit and bag for him, and as he drew out “The Dude’s” poncho-like garment, a loud cheer erupted*from the crowd when they realized one of the cinema’s most iconic slackers was about to be reincarnated in front of them.
“He’s a good actor, he’s a good man, John Goodman,” Bridges began. “He’s one of us, he loves the outdoors and acting. As a showman, he has explored the stages from Los Angeles to New York — we’re talking Broadway here, man — he’s done some weird little movies, too. And he’s lived, like so many men in prior generations have lived their lives. He is a man of his times, a man of our times, and he has become a legend.”
As Bridges delivered his version of the eulogy, Goodman laughed uncontrollably in the background.
Bridges continued, “In your wisdom lord, you have lived through John as you have through so many other bright, flowering, young actors before him. I’m talking about men like Clark Gable, Gabby Hayes, Roy Rogers — to keep in the whole Western thing — Groucho Marx, Jimmy Cagney. We could go on and on, but you get the idea.”
“In accordance with what we think may be your final wishes, we have committed to these sidewalks in Hollywood — in the bosom of Hollywood that you love so well — a star. A star for you, a star because we love you so well … what time is it? Afternoon? Good afternoon, sweet prince,” Bridges concluded, changing the film’s most famous line to reflect the ceremony’s time of day.
The heartwarming, poignant moment continued after Bridges finished, as the actors knelt at each other’s feet, before rising to warmly embrace.
