    key_peele_substituteParamount Pictures has bought Substitute Teacher, a pitch to give feature film treatment to the wildly web popular skits from Comedy Central’s hit sketch show Key & Peele. The viral video of the skit has gotten over 72 million YouTube hits, and focuses on an inner city substitute teacher who refuses to be messed with as he takes attendance in a class of white, suburban high school students. Keegan-Michael Key will reprise his role as as the over-the-top substitute Mr. Garvey, and Jordan Peele will portray a rival teacher determined to be the students’ favorite. The show returns for its fifth season on Comedy Central this July. Key & Peele set their first joint film project at New Line. Entitled Keanu, which is slated to begin production in the spring. The title refers not to the actor who played Neo in The Matrix, but rather a stolen cat. Two friends pose as drug dealers to infiltrate the criminal underworld in order to retrieve the kitty.

    The George Carlin website gets a relaunch with rare and unreleased recordings

    George_Carlin-BackdropGeorge Carlin is on the Mount Rushmore of comedy, something that simply cannot be argued. Carlin opened doors and influenced so many who followed. Not only in the world of comedy, but everyday life. From things we are aloud to say and do, to how we all look and are aloud to look at the world as a society. And his stories, jokes, and influence will surely live on as they are passed from generation to generation. Lucky for us, we live in a time when these moments in Carlin’s career are easily accessible and share-able. Even with his passing back in 2008 at the age of 71, he still continues to give. And now he’ll be giving yet again. His estate is planning a significant relaunch of the comedian’s website, complete with the promise of previously unreleased or rare audio recordings. The revamped site will kick off on March 27, coinciding with the hanging of a Carlin portrait in the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery. This after a recent street renaming in the Upper West Side of Manhattan to George Carlin Way. If you are ever in New York City, it’s a must visit. Read More
