    Peter Serafinowicz Has A Part In The (Never-Happening) 'Arrested Development' Movie

    Will Now Spend The Rest Of His Life Saying 'It's Still Being Written' In InterviewsIf you're not familiar with Peter Serafinowicz, rest assured, he's a very, very funny man. First coming to prominence as the voice of Darth Maul in "The Phantom Menace," the actor spent years cropping up in the best of British comedies like "Spaced," "Black Books" and "Look Around You," as well as a major supporting role in "Shaun of the Dead." In recent years, however, he's gone from strength to strength; with his absurdist sketch show "The Peter Serafinowicz Show" becoming a cult hit (watch a highlight below), he's started to make waves in the US, providing ...

    'Kung Fu Panda 2' Spot Lands TooAfter a truly golden few years for animation, 2011 is looking a little fallow. There's the usual mix of uninspiring also-rans, with the likes of "Gnomeo and Juliet," "Mars Needs Moms" and "Rio" all hitting in the next few months, but even the big dogs seem to have decided not to really bother this time around, with Pixar, Dreamworks and Warner Bros all turning out sequels to less-than-beloved originals in the form of "Cars 2," "Kung Fu Panda 2," "Puss In Boots" and "Happy Feet 2."
