Bill Murray Could’ve Had Jack Nicholson’s Role in the ‘Toni Erdmann’ Remake
Bill Murray Could’ve Had Jack Nicholson’s Role in the ‘Toni Erdmann’ Remake
Over the weekend I had dinner with some friends (yeah, I don’t live in the internet; crazy, right?) and the topic of the Toni Erdmann remake came up, which led to brainstorming which writers and directors might be perfect for taking on a three-hour German father-daughter relationship comedy (Sarah Polley) — and which ones will likely wind up with the job (someone like Larry Charles or Paul Feig, I bet). And while Jack Nicholson emerging from retirement is super exciting, one friend suggested that, since the film doesn’t even have a script or director yet, Nicholson will back out at the last minute and the role will go to Bill Murray. As it turns out, what really happened was sort of the reverse.

The ‘SNL’ Jan Hooks Tribute: Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig Present ‘Love Is But a Dream’
The unfortunate and untimely death of the great Jan Hooks this past week sent the comedy world into mourning, with countless writers and comics stepping forward to pay tribute to the late 'SNL' star. It could have been easy for this week's new episode to gloss over the passing of one of their own (it is a comedy show, after all), but 'SNL' has always been a slightly class institution -- it remembers those who came before.

'Saturday Night Live' got a touch of class this weekend, thanks to host Dame Helen Mirren, who was there to promote her new movie 'Arthur.' The 65-year-old Oscar winner certainly gave it her all in an episode that seemed to rely on two things: her never-aging beauty and her ability to impersonate famous people. When she wasn't pole dancing or letting Kristen Wiig get up close and personal with her
