Chris Rock is passing the mic to another comedian with a new comedy show he's sold to FX.
According to TV Guide, Rock will executive produce a six-episode series starring standup comedian W. Kamau Bell that will roll out this summer, the network announced on Wednesday.
Bell will tackle everything that Rock is famous for, which means plenty of jokes about politics, pop culture, race, religion, media and sex.
He’s been "Amazing," "Spectacular" and "Unlimited," but the nerdiest hero in comics is going "Ultimate" for a return to cartoon form.
“Ultimate Spider-Man” premieres Sunday, April 1 at 11 a.m. ET, leading Marvel’s new programming block on Disney XD. The lineup includes new animated shorts and the second season of “The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes,” as well as a real-life look at the art and science of superheroes.
It’s not just a Marvel thing.
When his film "Red Tails" was released earlier this year, George Lucas said that he was retiring and ready to move on to other things - which, yes, would mean no more "Star Wars" films.
The filmmaker reiterated as much when TMZ photographers flagged him down as he was exiting an L.A. eatery on Wednesday. They asked when fans would get to see the seventh, eighth and ninth installments in the "Star Wars" series - and, well, the answer is don't hold your breath.
"Never," Lucas responded as he made his way to his car. "I'm retired."
It looks like he meant what he said in an interview with New York Times magazine earlier this year: "Why would I make any more ['Star Wars' movies] when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?" he inquired. "I think there are a lot more important things in the world."
Actor Chris Klein is speaking out on an illness that nearly cost him his life - alcoholism.
The “American Pie” star tells People magazine that had he not checked himself into rehab in 2010, there’s a very real possibility he would have checked out completely.
"I would have died,” the 33-year-old admits. “I think about that every single day."
"Saturday Night Live" fans might soon see a fresh face among the cast: Deadline reports that comedian Kate McKinnon is expected to be a part of the April 7 episode of NBC's sketch comedy show, which will be hosted by Sofia Vergara.
Known for her work with the Upright Citizens Brigade, McKinnon was also part of "The Big Gay Sketch Show's" cast, and has won fans with her Web series, "Vag Magazine."
The Huffington Post notes that McKinnon was also nominated for the Emerging Comic honor by New York's excellence in comedy awards, the ECNYs, in 2010.
In addition to McKinnon, Deadline suggests that "SNL" creator Lorne Michaels is trying out other top female talent as well, including Jessica Joy, Lauren Lapkus and Elaine Carroll.
Jennie Garth is opening up in the new issue of People magazine about her recent split from soon-to-be ex-husband Peter Facinelli, who filed for divorce on Wednesday citing "irreconcilable differences."
The pair announced that they were ending their marriage two weeks ago.
Still, the “Beverly Hills, 90210” star admits she was “very resistant” to go through with the split from the “Twilight” actor - despite the obvious difficulties they were having.
