    Meet Bernie: a man who has truly found his place in this world as an assistant funeral director and beloved member of the community in the small Texas town of Carthage. Soft spoken with an arguably effeminate Southern accent, of a round stature but always with admirable posture, Bernie Tiede is a ge...

    Today In Unexpected Pairings: Jack Black & Michael Winterbottom Teaming For Comedy 'Bailout'

    Nothing quite gives a movie star a kick up the ass like two high-profile critically-eviscerated box office flops in a row, and the diminishing returns in Jack Black's career since "School of Rock," aside from the occasional gem like "Margot at the Wedding" and "Tropic Thunder," seemed to reach a trough in the last couple of years with "Year One" and "Gulliver's Travels." Fortunately, the actor seems to have taken stock -- birdwatching comedy-drama "The Big Year," with Owen Wilson and Steve Martin, is faintly promising, and he's reteamed with Richard Linklater on the dark comedy "Bernie," opposite Shirley MacLaine and fellow comeback-kid Matth...

    Jack Black Says Muppet Cameo Will Be Meta; Jason Segel Trying To Land Lady Gaga, Says No 3D

    Disney’s new Muppet movie -- now called “The Muppet Movie” -- has had more actors attached to it than the Academy Awards. On the surface the plot is classic Hollywood but according to a recent interview with Jack Black, there’s an interesting kick to it. No, we're not talking about an “Inception” ty...

    Review: 'Gulliver's Travels' Another Big Budget Comedy With A Cast Showing Up & Cashing Paychecks

    Either it's a trend or a freak coincidence (or some mixture of both), but December has found A-list stars cashing paychecks and slumming it in sub-par material. Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie and their silly putty faces floated through the turgid romantic thriller, " The Tourist," that was neither sexy nor exciting, and audiences smelled their half-hearted participation from a mile away. Owen Wilson, Paul Rudd, Reese Witherspoon and Jack Nicholson failed to convince anybody to see James L. Brooks' over-populated, people-talking-on-telephones comedy "How Do You Know." Opening this week is "Little Fockers," the terrible forthcoming installment in ...

    Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting... AgainGeeks flipping for any kind of morsel of news were all jazzed up this weekend when the synopsis and new logo (wow!) for "Kung Fu Panda 2: Kaboom Of Doom" appeared online on the film's official site.

Miller, Romany Malco, Joe Lo Truglio and hell, even Jack Black, who can be great in the right circumstance. And with a script co-written by Nicholas Stoller ...
