Which New Amazon Original Pilots Should You Stream This Weekend?
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Amazon's pilot season has begun and, just like last year, the future of the next Amazon Original series is in your hands. Ten new original pilots are now available to stream for free on Amazon and you get to vote on which ones will get picked up for series. While five of the pilots are for kids, the other five are comedies and dramas starring and written by some pretty reputable names. Since we know you only want to spend your weekend streaming the best of the best, we broke down each of the five "grown-up" pilots with our recommendations. You can watch all the pilots on Amazon. “The After” (Chris says ...) What’s it about? A group of mysteriously-linked strangers who are thrown together while trying to figure out why the world has suddenly gone all post-apocalyptic. Who’s in it? Some unfamiliar faces, Jamie Kennedy (for all you “Scream” fans), Sharon Lawrence (“NYPD Blue”) and a cameo from Smith from “Sex and the City” (who hopefully will return if the series is picked up).

Rihanna And Madonna On 'Childrens Hospital'?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
We love "Childrens Hospital" for its ridiculous cast -- including Rob Corddry, Ken Marino, Malin Akerman, Lake Bell, Erinn Hayes, Rob Huebel, Megan Mullally and Henry Winkler -- and its even more insane storylines. And now we feel even more justified in that love: The 15-minute late-night medical drama spoof show won an Emmy last year (gotta love that Outstanding Special Class, Short-format Live-Action Entertainment Program category!), and they're nominated again this year. In Season 5 (Thursdays at 12 ET on Adult Swim), the doctors are stationed at an Army base in Japan, and they're still mourning the loss of Corddry's Dr. Blake Downs, who was murdered. But dead or alive, you can't keep a good clown doctor down. Corddry shared 10 (possibly true but probably not) things to look forward to this season. 1. Nick Offerman. (Enough said.) 2. Young Justin Kirk is played by Weird Al Yankovic. 3. Weird Al Yankovic is played by someone else entirely. 4. Blake Downs ...

Shira Lazar: Rob Huebel Talks "Hell Baby," "Childrens Hospital" Season 5, and Secret Comic-Con Sex Parties (WATCH)
Huffington Post - over 3 years
It seems as if comedian and actor Rob Huebel got himself a bit lost at San Diego Comic-Con, so we sent Ethan Newberry to dig him out of his confusion. Once they were together, the guys just ended up talking all about Huebel's upcoming projects and secret underground sex parties that nobody knows about (but now we all do!). "'Hell Baby' is a movie that the guys from 'Reno 911' wrote and directed - Tom Lennon and Ben Garant," Huebel says. "It's terrifying, but also funny." We're sensing a theme here, considering the last time we had Ruebel on the show, he was telling us about his comedy/apocalypse film, "Rapture-Palooza." "I don't know how I get cast in these movies," he admits. "Some of these movies involve friends of mine and so friends of mine decide to make movies about dark stuff like that." That explains it. But, really, Huebel is looking for lighter fare. "I mainly want to get cast in children's movies, baby lambs, baby ducks, stuff like that. Unfortunately ...

"Before Midnight," "Don Jon's Addiction," "Upstream Color," Joss Whedon's "Much Ado About Nothing" and news from John Sayles, Joe Swanberg, David Gordon Green and Jeff Nichols will screen at the 2013 South By Southwest Film Festival. Those films join the previously announced premieres of the Steve Carell comedy "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" and the horror reboot "Evil Dead" on the SXSW lineup. “It’s an incredible privilege to sift through so much exciting work, and every year brings new surprises.

PHOTOS: Well, This Is Surreal
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Intrepid Tumblrer (I never know what to call people on Tumblr) Rachel Millman was digging around the archives of Aziz Ansari's Facebook page and unearthed some dusty old digital images of the Human Giant crew hanging out with the cast of The Hills at what had to be some sort of MTV-related shindig in 2007 or 2008 based on the shows' overlapping air dates and the subdued levels of Heidi Montag plastic surgery. Needless to say seeing the relatively-obscure-at-the-time Aziz Ansari, Paul Scheer, and Rob Huebel posing for photos with the likes of LC, Brody, Audrina, Spencer, and Heidi at the height of their collective fame is a bit surreal. But these images also serve as a really terrific reminder that even though reality television vapidness and fame-whoring may lead to fleeting fame, the world always course corrects and recognizes talented and hard-working people in the end.

The Man Who Desperately Wanted To Play Don Draper
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Known for his portrayal of "Childrens Hospital" funnyman Dr. Owen Maestro, Rob Huebel once had his heart set on a very different kind of role. In a recent interview with Splitsider, the comedian admitted he was dying to play Don Draper on "Mad Men." "I got all dressed up and wore a suit and went in," Huebel said. "I left there, thinking that I really nailed it. I was really like, 'Look out! Here comes Don Draper!' And then I never heard anything, never heard anything, never heard anything. And I thought, ‘Well, I’m sure that show got cancelled. Never even got off the ground. Bunch of dicks, they should have cast me. Serves them right.’ "Then, of course, it came on with Jon Hamm, and I was like, 'Oh! Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah. He’s way better. Yeah, he should do that.' Because he’s so great in it. He really is that guy. I’m not sure that I could have -- he’s so handsome. I think I would have been too intimidated to be married to January Jones." Interestingly ...

'Childrens Hospital' Season 4: Emmy-Nominated Absurdity!
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Knowing that "Childrens Hospital" (Season 4 premieres Thurs., Aug. 9, midnight ET on Adult Swim) is the brainchild of Rob Corddry will make you wonder a bit about Rob Corddry's brain. The most comforting thing? He still can't find a simple way to describe this bizarre, short-form, no rules comedy parody show that started as a web series and can now call itself an Emmy-nominated staple in Adult Swim's midnight primetime lineup. "I say it's an absurd comedy about a bunch of doctors who do inappropriate things in the workplace ... and their workplace happens to be a children's hospital," Corddry said. "But that doesn't really describe the show -- it's hard to describe absurdity in general I think." The show's audience might be niche, but Corddry loves that people who get it, find it. "We're never gonna get 'American Idol' numbers. I would just be so happy to reach half of the people in the world that like this kind of comedy. That would be awesome." I caught up with Cord ...

In which we hit it and quit it. The Amazing Spider-Man The bewildering, frustrating, boring thing about The Amazing Spider-Man: It's a movie that stupidly thinks it needs to tell us—again—where Spider-Man came from. And once you get past its plodding redundancy, the rest of the script for The Amazing Spider-Man isn't that spectacular either—the plot's driven by farfetched coincidences, major events are forgotten as soon as they're over, and a half-dozen half-hearted tweaks that are supposed to convince audiences that this Spider-Man is different from the one we saw a few years ago are tacked on and trivial. HOWEVER. Just about everything else in The Amazing Spider-Man is remarkably, giddily great. The Social Network's Andrew Garfield is a far better Peter Parker/Spider-Man than Tobey Maguire, and director Mark Webb—whose only previous credit is 500 Days of Summer—maximizes the spectacle of superhero action and the excitement of web-s ...

Apocalypse Now
The Portland Mercury - over 4 years
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World's biting comedy turns into romantic glop. by Ned Lannamann I CAN'T FIGURE OUT why Steve Carell keeps getting cast as the straight man. His two best roles—The Office's Michael Scott and Anchorman's Brick Tamland—had him playing outrageous, unbelievable, over-the-top characters, but here's the boring version of Carell again in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, in which he's the sad-sack romantic lead: mumbling, awkward, depressed, depressing Dodge Petersen. An asteroid is on a crash course with Earth, giving Dodge and the rest of humanity about three weeks before the apocalypse—and for the first half hour or so, writer/director Lorene Scafaria injects the film with scathing, unrepentantly dark humor. Scafaria's time writing for Childrens Hospital is in full effect (along with very funny cameos by Patton Oswalt, Rob Corddry, Rob Huebel, and others) as Dodge's pathetic qualities are played for l ...

Will "Dudes" Like What to Expect When You're Expecting?
Moviefone Blog - almost 5 years
I was a little taken aback when I saw the overtly male-focused trailer for What to Expect When You're Expecting. After all, What to Expect is a chick flick, right? Well, yes and no. It definitely has some major chick flick hallmarks (J-Lo! Matthew Morrison! Babies!), but it also has other elements that indicate it may be something different (Chris Rock! Brooklyn Decker! Jokes about bodily fluids!). The film's marketers have even set up a Facebook group to attract male fans called The Dude's Group, named after the daddy crew in the movie. The group, comprised of comedians like Rock, Rob Huebel (The Human Giant, I Love You, Man) and Thomas Lennon (Reno 911!) hadn't attracted a ton of dudes. At press time, only 1,382 Likes, including a fair number of ladies, had been registered. However, it did appear to pique the interest of several dude-minded daddies. Dudes will most likely enjoy The Dude's Group scenes in the movie. (I'm channeling my inner dude here to make such predictions.) Afte ...

Summer movie preview: It’s a summer for superheroes

From Friday’s Weekend Look section of The Oklahoman. This story is a collaborative effort of Gene Triplett of the Projections blog, Matt Price at Nerdage, George Lang of Staticblog and yours truly. It’s a summer for superheroes at the movies Comic book crime-fighters are aiming to clobber summer box office records. The booming success of “The Hunger Games” has Hollywood hoping for a record 2012. If it makes it there, it will be on the shoulders of some of the summer’s superheroes. Superhero films are expected to take the top spots this summer, with “Marvel’s The Avengers” opening in May, followed by “Amazing Spider-Man” in June and “The Dark Knight Rises” in July. “The Avengers” has already pre-sold more tickets than four of the Marvel films that preceded it, according to MovieTickets.com, so it’s likely to get the summer off with a bang.

'We were really keen that the film should tell the story of guys and girls going through pregnancy,' director Kirk Jones tells MTV News. By Kara Warner Anna Kendrick and Chace Crawford in "What To Expect When You're Expecting" Photo: Lionsgate Before MTV News' Summer Movie Preview Week wraps up, let's take a look at the very star-studded ensemble romantic comedy "What to Expect When You're Expecting." Although inspired by the very popular nonfiction book of the same name, the movie revolves around five very different couples and the hilarious highs and lows they experience during pregnancy. The cast includes the following actors as couples: Elizabeth Banks and Ben Falcone, Dennis Quaid and Brooklyn Decker (the joke about their age gap is in the film, don't worry!), Anna Kendrick and Chace Crawford, Cameron Diaz and Matthew Morrison, and Jennifer Lopez and Rodrigo Santoro.

Woah Baby! Mom Gives Birth To 12-Pound Preemie
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Michigan mom, Crista Hebel, 26, went into labor and gave birth four weeks early. However, baby Ayara was no ordinary preemie -- she weighed in at 12 pounds, 3 ounces. "My jaw dropped when I heard that number in the operating room, but I knew that was in the realm of possibility," Hebel told the Record-Eagle. The new mom was already making arrangements for a caesarean section because of the baby’s unusual estimated size, but went into labor while being treated for dehydration, the paper reports. Hebel said on Tuesday that Ayara, who was born Sunday, was doing well in the neonatal intensive care unit. "Everyone in the NIC-U tells me it's very hard to remember she was born premature because she's so large." Dr. Debra Kurtz said in 21 years of practice Ayara set the record for the biggest baby she’s delivered yet. Dad, Bob Hebel, was quoted as saying that his daughter’s size was not because of a medical condition. "She's just a very large child,” he said. ...
