Everyone knows fourth grade school children can be little monsters, but what happens when things get way too literal? That's what a bunch of unwitting teachers are about to discover on a seemingly normal working day. Clint Hadson is a substitute teacher who arrives at an elementary school already nervous of what lies ahead. But when some of the children start erupting in strange hives and violently lashing out at each other, it begins to become clear that a horrific virus has hit every pre-pubescent person in the building causing them to launch a vicious, flesh eating assault on their teachers. The grown-ups lock themselves away from the danger and meet one young boy who seems to have evaded the disease. It appears to be a food-borne epidemic resulting from lunchtime's chicken nuggets, and it looks like they're not the only school in the nation with problem pupils...

The film will tell the stranger-than-fiction tale of Gary Faulkner, who tried to single handedly take down Osama Bin Laden.
Russell Brand and Rainn Wilson have joined the cast of Nicolas Cage’s upcoming comedy Amy Of One, adding to a list which already includes Denis O’Hare, Ken Marino, Paul Scheer and Wendi McLendon-Covey. The film is said to have begun filming earlier this month and is due for release sometime next year.
Nicolas Cage will star in the comedy as Gary Faulkner.
The comedy is based around a stranger-than-fiction GQ article by Chris Heath on Colorado resident Gary Faulkner. In 2010 Faulkner decided he was going to be the one to take down Osama Bin Laden, armed only with a sword bought from a home shopping network and a pair of night-vision goggles.
Mixed reviews for Rainn Wilson's new drama.
Remember yesterday when we previewed Rainn Wilson's new cop-drama Backstrom? Well, now that it's premiered, the big-hitting critics have had their say, and, well, there's good and bad. Originally developed for CBS but now on Fox, the show is based on the book series for Leif G.W Persson and focuses on the alcoholic Portland detective Everett Backstrom (Wilson) and the Serious Crimes Unit.
Rainn Wilson kind of looks like a detective, no?
This is not particularly familiar territory for Wilson, best known for his comedic turn in The Office.

Rainn Wilson could have a hit on his hand with 'Backstrom'

Steve Carell's return to The Office was a successful one, as the show said it's final goodbye
Steve Carell has come a long way since he first introduced himself to America as Michael Scott, the hapless boss of Dunder Mifflin's Scranton branch, but even after two years (and two seasons) away from the show it was almost as though he'd never left The Office. Thursday's (May 16) 75-minute final farewell to the cast brought to an end nine seasons - spread over eight years, since 2005 - worth of highs, lows, loves and losses, and Carell's return served as the perfect icing on top of what was already a excellently crafted cake.
The feature-length send-off featured a reunion of the Dunder Mifflin colleagues old and new, who came to celebrate the marriage of office manager Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) and accountant Angela Martin (Angela Kingsley). And Carell's return as Scott was done in classic, cringe-worthy fashion, as the former manager re-entered the show to give his famous one-liner for a final time. Of course, where else other than a wedding is it more appropriate to enter a room saying; "That's what she said."
His insight into the wedding was equally as Scott-esque and best watched from behind a pillow, with the hapless character reflecting on the marriage when he told the camera, "It's like all my children grew up and they married each other."

The Office star Rainn Wilson (he plays the role of Dwight) has recorded a spoof of Angus T Jones’ recent interview, in which he branded Two and a Half Men (the show he’s paid thousands of dollars to appear in, playing the role of Jake) “filth.” Jones was explaining how he’s found God and how the content of Two and a Half Men doesn’t sit easy with him any longer.
In the interview for Forerunner Chronicles, he pleads with viewers not to watch the show, saying “if you watch Two and a Half Men, please don’t watch Two and a Half Men. I’m on Two and a Half Men and I don’t want to be on it.” In his own send-up of the interview, which doubles as a promo for the new season of the US version of The Office. He begins the skit by looking into the camera and announcing “Dwight from The Office is nothing, ok? The Office is nothing… If you watch The Office, please don’t watch The Office. Because I’m on The Office; it’s filth. Okay? And that filth will rot your brain.” He continues: “Take it from me, who’s on The Office, please don’t watch The Office, Thursday nights at 9 o’clock on NBC. Do not watch this final season; that filth will rot your brain.”
Not only was it a cunning way of promoting the new series, it’s damned hilarious and further proof that Angus T Jones may well have lost the plot. Watch Rainn Wilson’s hilarious Angus T Jones spoof here:

Fans of The Office won't be swapping filing cabinets and printers for scenic views and organic vegetables, as the rural spin off, previously announced in January and starring Dunder Mifflin's egomaniac salesman Dwight Schrute has been halted in its tracks.
"NBC has passed on moving forward with The Farm TV show. Had a blast making the pilot - onwards & upwards!" tweeted Rainn Wilson, who plays Schrute. He did, though, implore fans of the series not to be too downheartened, and to keep on watching the show, Reuters reported. The potential spin off would have seen Schrute working full time running a bed and breakfast inn at the beet farm with a cast of new characters. Matt Jones, who plays Badger on Breaking Bad, was to play Schrute's cousin Zeke. Sounds funny to us; we wish it'd been done! Wilson has previously promised that The Farm would be "even more far out and weird" than The Office. But NBC has lately expressed a taste for more mainstream comedy.
The U.S incarnation of The Office, which was created in the U.K by British funny man Ricky Gervais, is currently in its last season and producers have said it will tie up many of the characters' storylines and reveal the identity of those shooting the 'documentary' at the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in Scranton.

As the end of The Office is nigh, it was expected that various spinoff shows would be tried and tested. The idea that got farthest is The Farm which even had a pilot made. The Farm would have followed Rainn Wilson's character Dwight Schrute, who was the American equivalent of Gareth from the UK version of the comedy, with a setting of a bed and breakfast run by Schrute.
Despite the filming of the pilot, Wilson has now confirmed via Twitter that the show will not be taken any further. "Farm Update: NBC has passed on moving forward with The Farm TV show. Had a blast making the pilot - onwards & upwards!" He said, adding "PS Keep watching the AWESOME final season of The Office. Many surprises & hilariousities coming!" NBC have not yet confirmed this cancellation, but there's no reason an actor would downplay his own comedy series. Luckily, fans will still get to see the pilot as it is reportedly set to be aired alongside the current and final season of The Office. It was also going to star Majandra Delfino who played Dwight's sister Frannie, and Thomas Middleditch who was playing his brother.
Other shows that have been cancelled include Anderson Live! But many more shows have been re-contracted including Elementary, Vegas, Homeland, X-Factor and Arrow.
