On the press line for this latest exploration, we spoke with both...

Get Shorty gets the TV show treatment as well

Animated film Nerdland starring Paul Rudd & Patton Oswalt gets new trailer

This shit looks amazing . I mean, it's like someone took a bunch of things I love, put it in a f*cked up blender, and splurted out something gross but tantalizing. Hailing from Titmouse studios (which brought us awesome Adult Swim shows like METALOCALYPSE and VENTURE BROTHERS) comes a story of two dim-witted thirty-year old Hollywood wannabes (voiced by  Patton...

Well, the next movie I saw him in was SPEED where he gave an awesome performance as the villain, which also...
