Now with Parker Posey, Comedy Central Pilot 'Crazy House' Might Have One of Best Casts This Pilot Season

thecomedybureau:

Parker Posey joins Nick Turner, Whitmer Thomas, Johnny Pemberton, Demorge Brown, Erik Charles Nielsen, Kate Berlant, Eugene Mirman, Big Jay Oakerson, Lindsay Ames, and Joe Urla in making for one of the most intriguing casts this pilot season in Comedy Central’s Crazy House from Nick Turner and Lee Rubenstein

Just on the notion that these people need to be on TV more, especially together, this should get a greenlight. 

Wow, that cast!

THE RAID 2 BERANDAL AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

And might I add: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

*faints*

In The Raid, a lot of people tended to respond to these key moments. I tend to treat the fight scenes as a way you’d construct a joke: you build up but you’ve got to have a really good punch line at the end of it. For the action sequences, that’s what we reach for, that really good punch line. Every action sequence should have 6 or 7 really good punch lines within it." — Gareth Evans (interview has one or two spoilers for the Sequel)

Escape from Tomorrow trailer.  I really want to see this— I didn’t think it’d get distributed!  I’ve always wanted to see a movie like this set at Disneyworld or someplace like that because I kinda hate amusement parks. (I think that they sushi the whole concept of amusement, which is a perfectly lovely concept really, into anatomized parts that actually don’t amuse but instead make you cognizant of how empty amusement / life / everything actually is…? I might be up my own ass on this one but… the heart wants what it wants…?  That feels like the appropriate saying here).  Anyways, excited this is being released.
