The Internet Is Divided Over Dakota Johnson's Isis Sketch


Dakota Johnson Taran Killam

Despite her racy Fifty Shades of Grey role, Dakota Johnson isn't really known for being particularly controversial. Saturday Night Live on the other hand, has never shied away from the more controversial topics like, say, ISIS. On Saturday, the show aired a pre-filmed sketch with Johnson, which used the extremist faction as a punch line.

Dakota Johnson
Dakota Johnson stirred yet more controversy on SNL this weekend.

The story was pretty familiar - a proud dad (Taran Killam) drops off his Army-bound daughter (Johnson). They say their goodbyes, it's all appropriately soppy and emotional, etc. Then Killam as the dad looks up at the sound of a car horn and tells Johnson: "Your ride is here."

Cobie Smulders And Taran Killam Welcome Second Child


Cobie Smulders Taran Killam

Cobie Smulders has revealed that she and her husband, comedian Taran Killam, welcomed their second child into the world more than three weeks ago. While the actress didn’t reveal the name of the new baby, it arrived in early January 2015.

The 32 year old actress, most famous for her long-standing role as Robin Scherbatsky in ‘How I Met Your Mother’, spilled the secret to Bustle during an interview at Sundance Film Festival about her new movie Unexpected, whose plot concerns two women – a teacher and her student - coping with unplanned pregnancies.

Lena Dunham Goes All Old Testament On SNL


Lena Dunham Taran Killam Adam Driver Kerry Washington

Lena Dunham hosted and helped out the SNL team with a few sketches last night. And it was hilarious – mostly if you’re a Girls fan. Much has been written about Dunham’s Girls – mostly about its white-washed, middle-class, spoiled and completely self-unaware cast of characters. At least no one can say that Dunham herself lacks self-awareness though.

Lena Dunham, Girls SNL Premiere
Put Dunham and the SNL cast together and the fun never ends. Sort of.

In a sketch, based on the recent trend of religious flicks – Son of God and Noah being to prime examples – Taran Killan played Adam Driver as the Adam to Dunham’s Eve. The sketch was perfectly on point - wonder if it'll win the show some new viewers? Girls fans will recognize lines like: “Can you please not apple-shame me? I know I committed original sin, but at least it's original. I think I deserve some credit for that—or at least a publishing deal…”

Last Night's SNL Featured The Neglected Characters - All Of Them, Played By Kerry Washington


Kerry Washington Oprah Winfrey Michelle Obama Taran Killam Kenan Thompson

They had to do it. There couldn’t have been a better opportunity for SNL to address the diversity issue than a guest appearance by Kerry Washington. SNL fans were eager to see how the show would tackle its obvious lack of black comediennes with a prominent diversity advocate (not to mention an exceptional actress) like Washington on board. They were not disappointed.

Kerry Washington, Paley Center
Washington had to play both the First Lady, Oprah and a whole host of other celebrities.

So you know how people have been complaining that the lack of a black comedienne severely limits the cast’s topical sketches? The two main examples were Oprah and Michelle Obama – with noone to impersonate them, SNL has missed some golden opportunities over the past six years (the last time Michelle Obama was featured in a skit, she was played by Maya Rudolph in 2007). Not last night though, because Washington was on a mission to perform all the sketches! All the sketches that SNL hasn’t done due to casting limitations. The writers didn’t waste any time and the Scandal actress came out as the first lady at the very beginning of the episode causing President Obama (Jay Pharoah) to remark, "I feel like it's been years since I've seen you!" See what they did there?

Glowing Kerry Washington Promotes Her Very First SNL Hosting Gig


Kerry Washington Taran Killam Kenan Thompson Oprah Winfrey Michelle Obama Beyonce Knowles Eminem

Kerry Washington has been killing it lately – the newly pregnant star is doing great both in her personal and her professional life, with an upcoming SNL hosting gig to look forward to. In the promos, Washington and Taran Killam riff off each other on topics like Scandal, Eminem’s special performing style (the rapper will be the musical guest during the episode) and of course, that ever touchy subject – Washington’s body.

Kerry Washington, Essence Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon
Washington looked glamorous as ever, promoting her SNL episode.

To be fair, the actress isn’t showing any sort of baby bump and looks killer in a purple ensemble (and matching lipstick.) Killam on the other hand, has opted for the traditional uniform – patterned shirt and neutral cardigan. But enough about the clothes, let’s talk about the controversy.

12 Years A Slave Trailer


Solomon Northup was a well-educated man from a successful family living in upstate New York with his wife and three children. He was categorised as a free black man and made money through various jobs including as an entertainer playing the violin. In 1841, he was tricked into going to Washington DC with two white men for work where he was instead kidnapped and sold to slavery despite there being laws to protect free African-Americans. He spent twelve years on a plantation in Louisiana serving the brutal and abusive owner Edwin Epps. Determined to live his life again as a free man, he befriended a Canadian carpenter working for Epps by the name of Samuel Bass, whose high-morals turned Solomon's life around forever.

This poignant historical biopic is based on the 1853 autobiography 'Twelve Years a Slave' by the real Solomon Northup. It has been adapted to screen by writer John Ridley ('U Turn', 'Red Tails') and the BAFTA nominated director Steve McQueen ('Hunger', 'Shame'). With themes of freedom, racial inequality and the cruelty of mankind, '12 Years A Slave' could be one of the more heart-wrenching movies to kick of the year on its UK cinematic release on January 24th 2014.

The Heat Trailer


Sarah Ashburn is an FBI special agent with an unmatched record for closed cases. However, she is as much valuable as she is disliked as her flawless reputation has inflated her ego and turned her into a control freak who repeatedly fails to be a team player among her fellow agents. When her boss sends her to Boston, little does she know that she's about to meet her match in the shape of Detective Shannon Mullins; a loud-mouthed cop who has also never been good at working with other cops and makes for a truly formidable adversary. However, it is to everyone's surprise when these tough-talking law enforcers succeed in partnering up to bring in a particularly ruthless mobster with serious drug connections and manage to work together in interrogating his known associates. It soon becomes clear that these ladies are becoming less in the way of crime-fighting partners and more in the way of best friends.

This fantastic bad girl comedy sees Sandra Bullock ('Miss Congeniality') as an FBI agent yet again and, for this reason alone, guarantees it to become a huge comedy flick. Directed by Paul Feig ('Bridesmaids') and written by Katie Dippold ('MADtv', 'Parks and Recreation'), 'The Heat' is set to hit screens on April 5th 2013.

Director: Paul Feig
