SNL’s ratings drop after Jonah Hill’s hosting gig…
Jonah Hill hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, one week after Lindsay Lohan graced the set of the legendary sketch comedy show. Even with a surprise appearance by Tom Hanks and a great performance from indie rock band The Shins, the episode’s ratings dropped from last week. Hill’s opening monologue was pretty funny – a reality show-style video of Hill’s rehearsal week at SNL, highlighting his Oscar-nominated ego by demanding a Diet Coke from cast member Andy Samberg, and a phony phone call to his “best friend” Brad Pitt.
Unfortunately the rest of the episode fell short of hilarity, with the only gems being the return of Bill Hader’s character “Stefon” and the skit “J Pop America”. Hill’s funniest sketch was him playing a scientist who taught a monkey to talk, who lets it out that the scientist was into some kinky “experiments” (“He sex me!” the ape exclaimed). According to the ratings though, it seems like America didn’t think the whole episode was that funny.
We still have hope for a hilarious episode from SNL yet – luscious Latina Sofia Vergara is hosting April 7.
On The Road gets its first trailer…
Finally, the classic novel becomes a film! One of the most famous, generation-defining literary classics of all time has finally been adapted into a movie. Jack Kerouac’s semi-autobiographical novel On The Road will be hitting the silver screen later this year, directed by Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries). It stars Sam Riley as Kerouac’s alter ego Sal Paradise, dreamy Garret Hedlund (Dean Moriarty), Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams and Viggo Mortenson. The most surprising part of the trailer belongs to Kristen Stewart, of awkward, sullen, hair-tugging, lip-biting Twilight fame.
In this clip, you actually see her smiling, laughing, dancing even… looking fresh-faced and wild. Truth be told, this blogger can’t wait to for Stewart to surprise her, playing the 16-year-old wife of Dean Moriarty, the joint-rolling topless Marylou.
Check out the first trailer from On The Road here:
More Kardashian nonsense…
Not that anyone cares anymore, but according to FitPerez.com, sources close to Kris Humphries are saying he wants $7 million dollars from Kim Kardashian, unless she wants all her dirty laundry aired in a nasty trial. Really Kris, really?? He’s playing on the fact that Kim hates negative publicity, but would she be willing to pay him off to shut his mouth? His demands are laughable, but as Perez Hilton so rightly puts it: “Kim doesn’t like ugly publicity so which is worth more to her — millions or peace of mind???”
This guy just needs to disappear from the Hollywood radar already and go back to basketball!
Hope you all had a great weekend FilmFunders!
