Just days after Adam DeVine landed a role in Warner Bros.' new comedy The Intern, his Workaholics co-star/co-creator Anders Holm has signed on to star as well. Only time will tell if the third Workaholics star/creator Blake Anderson will join the cast.
The story centers on an elderly man (Robert De Niro) who joins the intern program at a fashion website. He is assigned to the site's founder (Anne Hathaway), as they form a surprisingly strong bond between them. Anders Holm is playing the romantic lead opposite Anne Hathaway's character, while Adam DeVine is playing the head of the intern program.Read More
Paul Rudd, Danny McBride and Workaholics star Anders Holm have joined the voice cast for Sausage Party. Sony Pictures also handed out a June 3, 2016 release date for the animated comedy, a weekend currently unoccupied but one that comes a week before Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man 3 hits theaters.
Sausage Party follows the exploits of a lone sausage, who learns the truth about his existence at the supermarket. After falling out of a shopping cart, he joins forces with a new group of friends to get back to his aisle before the big 4th of July sale kicks off.Read More
Popular Comedy Central sitcom Workaholics was renewed for two more seasons in January, just as it was kicking of the second half of Workaholics Season 3. The team, lead by Adam DeVine, Blake Anderson, Anders Holm, and director/co-star Kyle Newacheck, doesn't plan on stopping there, though. The TeleAmeriCorp guys are in the midst of writing a big screen outing, and they've revealed that it is going to be an action comedy, though it won't be Workaholics: The Movie.
Kyle Newacheck, who plays drug dealer Karl on the series also directs every episode, and he will be at the helm of this big screen outing as well. He explained where the film is currently at in production."It's undergoing rewrites right now. It's definitely moving, and we're all very excited to do it. It's an action comedy, and it's going to be really badass and super funny. We're keeping a lot of it under wraps. I think I can say if you like Workaholics, you're going to like this movie.Read More
You'll notice that in today's cinematic landscape, most major characters needing a voice in a CGI or motion capture family film are supplied by an established A-list actor (see Johnny Depp in Rango) or a known celebrity (Taylor Swift is fourth billed in Dr. Seuss' the Lorax). Twenty-two years ago, way back in 1990, that wasn't the case. Take Beauty and the Beast for instance. In 1991, Robby Benson, the lead voice actor in the film, had been absent from the spotlight for many years and was cast primarily for his talents on the microphone, not any sort of marquee value. Angela Lansbury served as the only real stunt casting. If the film was made today, we'd see Anne Hathaway serving as Beauty, with Hugh Jackman stepping in as the Beast. Even a smaller part, like Chip or Stove, would be supplied by any given member of the Apatow repertoire.
One of the biggest franchises from the 90s had a certain lack of known talent as well. The original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was a film that opened March 30th, 1990, hitting number one on the box office charts for four consecutive weeks without nary a big name personality in sight. No mean feat, this cash cow won audiences over based solely on the existing property name alone, and its already established franchises in the world of cartoons and comic books. New Line Cinemas, a struggling studio at the time, kept the movie on the cheap and didn't have to hire known talent to portray the Turtles. Or any of the other cast members for that matter (though some of us at the time still held an affinity for Casey Jones' Elias Koteas based on his scene-stealing performance in Some Kind of Wonderful).Read More
Adam, Blake, and The Ders won't be back until this summer for Season 3 of Workaholics. But if you've been missing the guys, Adam DeVine, Anders Holm, Blake Anderson, and wonky-eyed Kyle Newacheck recently hooked-up with MTV for a "First Date", which you can check out below, along with Blake's real-life dad lying is way through the 911 call that was phoned-in after @UncleBlazer jumped off his roof during a pary, landing onto a Comedy Central beer pong table breaking his back. Mini-golf, anyone?
