Bill Hader may be best known for his work on Saturday Night Live and voice work in projects ranging from the very adult The Venture Brothers to the family friendly Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, but he’s also quietly earned a reputation as something of an expert in family films as the host of TCM’s TCM Essentials Jr. – which runs films that are perfect for parents to introduce to their kids.
Hader returns to host a third season of TCM Essentials Jr. beginning with a screening of the classic Danny Kaye action-comedy The Court Jester on June 2nd (8/7C). Check out the official press release – and a complete listing of films to be screened – following the jump.
Relativity Media and Michaels Goldwyn are set to put into production a comedy movie based on the super funny SNL skit MacGruber which will be produced by Ryan Kavanaugh, Lorne Michaels, John Goldwyn
and written by Will Forte, Jorma Taccone, John Solomon
MacGuber is based on Will Forte’s Saturday Night Live character, which is basically a parody send up of the hit ABC series MacGyver starring Richard Dean Anderson. In the highly successful comedy skit, Will Forte plays a MacGyver like secret agent who isn’t quite as adept at being clever as his MacGyver counterpart.
