Bill Hader To Star As Low-Rate Hitman In New HBO Comedy Pilot
Huffington Post - about 1 year
After watching him literally charm the pants off Amy Schumer in "Trainwreck," it was clear we needed more Bill Hader in our lives (and on our TV screens).  Well, our prayers have been answered!  According to CinemaBlend, HBO ordered a pilot of "Barry," a series which stars Hader as an ex-Marine working as a cut-rate hitman living in the Midwest. At some point, his job takes him to Los Angeles, and naturally, he gets involved with a group of eager local actors in the city's theatre scene. (Maybe we'll get to seem him reprise the role of Stefon during some sort of acting workshop ... We can hope.) Now if that doesn't seem great already, it should be noted that aside from starring as the lead, Hader is the show's writer, executive producer and director. He'll also be working with "Silicon Valley" writer/producer Alec Berg, Deadline reports. The show will mark Hader's first time directing, but we have faith he'll knock it out of the park. And if his work on "Do ...

Huffington Post - about 3 years
Sunday night, HuffPost Comedy was the first to notice an instant classic Twitter exchange between comedian Kyle Kinane and @Pace_Foods, which claimed to be the official Twitter presence for Pace Picante salsa. The interaction lasted hours and appeared to be a wildly entertaining story that involved free salsa, hacked accounts, botched customer service and even a terminated employee. And the whole thing turned out to be a hoax. On Monday afternoon, Kinane revealed that he had been the victim of a prank at the hands of fellow comedian Randy Liedtke, whose Tumblr bio describes him as "a stand up comic/cook at a gay bar/tall red head living in Los Angeles, originally from the beautiful state of Oregon." Monday night, HuffPost Comedy chatted with Randy about how this prank came about. HuffPost Comedy: Describe how the prank started. Randy Liedtke: In August, I had this idea to create a couple Twitter accounts for companies that didn't have Twitter accouts, and then establish them as sor ...
