    Tribeca Review: Will Forte Makes Dramatic Debut In Clunky But Affecting 'Run And Jump'

    There’s acting and then there’s “acting.” The first requires building credible characters and relationships, developing organic conflicts within the framework of a concrete story. The second involves loading up a story with excessive clutter that it drowns out any work of which the actors are capabl...

    One Way Or Another, Will Forte Says 'MacGruber 2' Is Going To Happen

    While "MacGruber" didn't exactly light up the box office a few years, it's deranged sense of humor and outright absurdity landed the movie a devoted following, who have been vocal about wanting to see a sequel. And in this era of Kickstarting/rebooting everything, perhaps it's not impossible. But la...

    Tim Robbins & Will Forte Replace Dennis Quaid & Ty Burrell In 'Jackie Brown' Prequel 'The Switch'

    Hey, remember “The Switch”? That Elmore Leonard adaptation, which is a prequel to “Jackie Brown”? Writer/director Dan Schechter is attached to it. Does any of that ring a bell? Well, if you do remember and have been looking forward to this, rest assured, it’s still happ...

    Review: 'That's My Boy' Predictably Juvenile & Surprisingly Far Uglier Than The Usual Adam Sandler Offering

    Adam Sandler, comedian, A-List star, and leading man of this Friday’s “That’s My Boy,” is not an idiot. Dedicated to preserving his brand, his films have effectively raised a generation, from the sophomoric absurdity of “Billy Madison” to, uh, the sophomoric banality of “Grown Ups.” You can’t keep p...

    Will Forte Says There Won't Be A 'MacGruber' Sequel After All

    Beleive it or not, but "MacGruber" is a favorite among many of The Playlisters. For real. If you think we're just a bunch of art house snobs, you can throw this movie on and we'll happily laugh our asses off. And we were pretty excited when a couple of weeks ago, director Jorma Tac...

    'Grown Ups 2' Adds Shaquille O'Neal, Andy Samberg, Will Forte, Cato From 'The Hunger Games' & More

    In the few short years since “Funny People” was released, Adam Sandler has made it his goal to outdo the fake terrible movies that his character did in Judd Apatow’s film. The nadir of his inexorable downward slope will probably be next year’s “Grown Ups 2” and he...

    Will Forte Will Go On A 'Neighborhood Watch' With Ben Stiller & Vince Vaughn

    Transitioning out of "Saturday Night Live" and establishing yourself as a stand-alone star isn't easy and for every Will Ferrell or Adam Sandler there is a Chris Kattan or Tim Meadows. For Will Forte, the journey certainly hasn't been a straight line. His attempt to turn "MacGruber" into a feature film found audiences lukewarm to the idea, and his previous attempt big-screen comedy stardom "The Brothers Solomon" was roundly ignored and critically savaged. However, Forte hasn't given up and is wisely going the supporting route to re-build his profile. With roles in "I Hate You Dad," "Rock Of Ages" and "Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie" on t...

    Watch: Jason Sudeikis Plays A Horndog, Again, In 'A Good Old Fashioned Orgy' Trailer

    Orgies, generally speaking, tend not to be most riveting stuff on film, as anyone who suffered through Tom Cruise’s winding, nonsensical journey to see wife Nicole Kidman Julienne Davis get violated by strangers in a country house whilst wearing a mask in “Eyes Wide Shut” will no doubt agree. You'd think the "raunchy" trailer for the Apatowian “A Good Old Fashioned Orgy” – which sounds like it was a good title before it was a good screenplay - would aim to explode this notion quicker than you can say “Fidelio” with an onslaught of middle-class thirty-somethings disrobing and engaging all kinds of bad behavior. As it is, there's little of th...
