Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, the show that turns a basic premise into an outrageous display of hijinks, released a new trailer for season five, and yes, there is an episode with Miranda Sings.
Tag: Kevin Hart (1-10 of 12)
With a new season of football on the horizon, a new version of Madden NFL Football comes to video game consoles everywhere—just as it was in the beginning.
To celebrate this week’s release of the 2015 edition, Kevin Hart and Dave “I’m the Better” Franco star in what might possibly be the greatest or worst video game commercial ever made. You kind of have to judge for yourself.
Just because you think like a man doesn’t mean you can ride like one too.
On The Tonight Show Tuesday night, Jimmy Fallon took advantage of the show’s week-long relocation to Orlando by taking Think Like a Man Too star Kevin Hart to the Universal Studios Florida theme park for a turn on the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit.
“Really, I don’t like roller coasters,” Hart told Fallon. “And you made me do it.”
The Oscars ceremony has been over for, um, approximately 12 hours — so of course it’s time to discuss whom you’d like to see host the annual event next year.

Below, see some of our potential picks — both fantasy and more realistic — and then vote for whom you’d like to see joking around with Meryl Streep at the 2015 ceremony. READ FULL STORY

This past Saturday’s episode of SNL was indisputably a season highlight. But here’s a question: How much of the credit for that belongs solely to host Justin Timberlake?
Timberlake certainly seems to have a Midas effect whenever he drops by SNL. His very presence energizes the entire show, even the segments in which he doesn’t appear. Take, for example, this week’s Stefon appearance, which is the funniest the character’s been in months.
That said, an enormous number of “surprise” cameos also buoyed Timberlake’s latest Saturday Night Live turn — and when the euphoria induced by Steve Martin, Andy Samberg, Jay-Z, et al wore off, we were left with an episode that lagged mightily after Weekend Update (“The Adventures of Sober Caligula”? ), despite Timberlake’s best efforts. Arguably, then, Timberlake himself doesn’t necessarily deserve full marks for the show’s success. (I’m not necessarily making that argument; I’m just saying one could.)
Still, Timberlake shouldn’t have much trouble shooting to the top of this week’s Host Poll — especially since last week’s results prove that none of our current Mr./Ms. Saturday Night contenders has a decisive lead. READ FULL STORY
It’s been an Oscar-caliber season so far for Saturday Night Live. By that, I mean that two of the show’s most popular guests took home golden trophies last week at the Academy Awards, and another was the award show’s host. (And that’s not even counting Best Supporting Actress winner Anne Hathaway, who was no slouch herself when she hosted SNL in November.)
So Kevin Hart stepped into a tight spot on Saturday: he followed Django‘s Waltz, who rocketed into the lead of our Mr. Saturday Night host poll, and he’s got all-timer Justin Timberlake on-deck, set to host next week. Not exactly the ideal place to be for a first-timer. Technically, I suppose, Hart isn’t really a first-timer. As he explained in his opening monologue, he’d auditioned to join the show’s cast before — an experience that didn’t go down too well despite some amazzzzing impressions of Robert De Niro and Denzel Washington. Fortunately for the comic star of Think Like a Man and the upcoming About Last Night remake, Saturday night was a much better experience.
Waltz certainly was a tough act to follow, though: he cruised to a 37-point victory in the latest vote for our favorite host of the season. Christmas-episode guest Martin Short and season-premiere host Seth MacFarlane both lost ground, but are comfortably in second and third place, respectively. Jennifer Lawrence didn’t seem to get much of an Oscar bounce, as her support was slashed in half, but fortunately for her, Justin Bieber‘s fans simply forgot to vote. The worst 19th birthday gift yet for the Biebs: pathetic support that resembled a GPA for a Delta House pledge more than a popularity contest result for one of music’s biggest names. READ FULL STORY
Confession: I was one of those people who didn’t know who Kevin Hart was prior to this weekend. But I had tentatively high hopes on learning that he was a comedian. He’s experienced performing before a live audience and comedians have had pretty decent track records hosting the show in the past… What could go wrong? But, as Hart admitted in his opening monologue, there was a reason he was turned down from Saturday Night Live years ago. From the moment Hart overran his monologue, the entire show felt rushed, fizzling out to an unsatisfying conclusion. READ FULL STORY
Only three actual comedians have hosted SNL this season — Louis C.K., Martin Short, and Jamie Foxx. And Foxx only half counts, since he’s better known these days as an Oscar-winning Serious Actor than as a sketch comedian and stand-up who starred in 100 episodes of his very own sitcom.
Perhaps not coincidentally, those comedian-hosted shows have also been some of the season’s strongest. Louis’s Abraham Lincoln-meets-Louie parody still stands as this year’s funniest pre-taped bit. Short is still at the top of EW’s weekly SNL host poll for a reason. And Foxx… well, since his comedy career reached its height in the ’90s, it makes a certain sort of sense that his episode of SNL felt like a relic from that era. Either way, he was a thoroughly commanding, dominant presence on the show, and that alone was enough to make his hosting turn impressive.
All of this bodes well for Kevin Hart, an actor and comedian who’s still a bit under the radar. READ FULL STORY
As Jason Sudeikis points out in the video below, three of 2013’s four acting Oscar winners have hosted SNL this season. (Daniel Day-Lewis, you’re on notice.) Does that mean that upcoming host Kevin Hart has been hiding some secret dramatic chops?
Probably not — but the comedian’s stints hosting MTV’s 2012 Video Music Awards and starring on BET’s Real Husbands of Hollywood do seem like they’ve been good seasoning for his Saturday Night Live debut. If nothing else, an entire sketch built around Hart and Bobby Moynihan pulling the old Totem Pole Trench trick would definitely be a win. Check out Hart’s promos here:
