Amy Poehler, Seth Rogen win American Comedy Awards

Amy Poehler and her NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation were big winners at last night’s American Comedy Awards, taking home the trophies for best comedy actress in television and top TV program.

The pre-taped awards ceremony made its broadcast network debut, airing on NBC for the first time. Craig Robinson and the Nasty Delicious served as the house band for the ACAs, which honored Bill Cosby with the Johnny Carson Award for Comedic Excellence. While introducing The Cos, Chris Rock acknowledged the strong, positive influence the comedian brought to a mainstream audience, saying: “Without The Cosby Show back then, we might not have a black man in the Oval Office today. Obama is the first black president, but Bill Cosby is the man to act like the first black president.”

Film winners included This Is the End, which was named top film and scored directing honors for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, and The Heat, which took home best screenplay and earned Melissa McCarthy a best actress nod. Will Ferrell won the best actor award for his role in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, but wasn’t able to attend the ceremony. Billy Eichner accepted the statue in his honor, delivering some of then night’s best lines. Watch his speech below: READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber responds to Seth Rogen hate on Twitter -- VIDEO

Justin Bieber found out Seth Rogen doesn’t like him, and he seems bummed about it.

Earlier this week, Rogen spoke to Howard Stern on Sirius and reminisced about the first time he met the Biebs. They were at a German talk show, and someone told Rogen that Bieber was a fan and wanted to meet him. But when the two had their meeting, Bieber didn’t exactly show his excitement. “I was like, ‘He’s a little bit of a motherf—er. Whatever. He’s a bit of a d—,'” Rogen told Stern.

Seth Rogen and Zac Efron don drag for Fallon's 'Ew!' sketch -- VIDEO

Ever wonder what Zac Efron’s buff body looks like in a wig and dress?

Wonder no more, silent weirdos of the Internet. Tuesday on Tonight, Jimmy Fallon brought back “Ew!,” his spoof Teen Nick show where celebrities dress like teenage girls and say “Ew!” a bunch. That’s…basically it.

The people donning wigs and dresses this time around? Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, who, to their credit, get super into the silly bit. Come for Efron twirling his hair, stay for the last 30 seconds, which includes an awesome Gary Oldman shout out (I think Rogen may be a huge Harry Potter fan?) as well as a James Franco joke. Lord knows there’s plenty to talk about there.

Seth Rogen has met Justin Bieber a few times -- and he is not a fan

Seth Rogen is not a Belieber.

According to Digital Spy, while talking to Howard Stern on Sirius Monday, the Neighbors star explained that he’d met the young pop star a few times. “He’s a good example of someone, who you meet, who you think you are going to hate — and then you get to hate him… you meet him and he lives up to every one of your expectations,” Rogen said.

Seth Rogen talks about his wedding invitation from Kanye West on 'Ellen' -- VIDEO

Like everyone who saw the premiere of Kanye West’s “Bound 2″ music video on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Seth Rogen was in awe. Unlike the rest of us, the very next morning he took that inspiration and began filming a shot-for-shot parody of the video with pal James Franco.

The spoof was a viral hit. We all had a good laugh — even West, much to the surprise of everyone (Jimmy Kimmel in particular). And then West invited Rogen and Franco to his upcoming wedding to Kim Kardashian.

It was a strange chain of events, to say the least. So naturally, Rogen talked about how it all went down when he stopped by Ellen to promote his new movie, Neighbors, on Wednesday.

Rogen says that once he and Franco realized the best way to parody “Bound 2″ was to re-create it shot-for-shot, they “became obsessed with getting it, like, perfect…even the lighting. I would try to nuzzle the same way [Kim] nuzzled….I got razor burn from Franco.” READ FULL STORY

Zac Efron opens up about drugs and tough times: 'I'm much more comfortable in my own skin'

Is Zac Efron doing better these days? Bet on it.

The actor — who’s promoting his buzzy comedy Neighbors — is on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter and opening up for the first time about his struggles with addiction and incidents like getting into a fight on Skid Row.

The good news: Efron shared he’s in AA and seeing a therapist, and things are a lot better than they were. “I think it’s changed my life,” he told the magazine, in reference to his new routine. “I’m much more comfortable in my own skin.” READ FULL STORY

'Neighbors': Seth Rogen and Zac Efron try out for 'Workaholics' cubicle -- NSFW VIDEO

Workaholics-Neighbors.jpg

In a new Comedy Central video, Seth Rogen and Zac Efron audition for the most coveted role of them all: the fourth member of Adam, Blake, and Anders’ cubicle on Workaholics.

Their appearance in the Workaholics world is part of a promotional tour for the duo’s upcoming movie Neighbors, in which Rogen plays a new dad who clashes with his family’s new neighbor, a rowdy frat — and let’s just say Efron lives up to his role as cocky frat boy in the clip. READ FULL STORY

'Saturday Night Live' best host poll: Did Seth Rogen play it too safe? -- VOTE

Perhaps Seth Rogen’s latest Saturday Night Live episode wasn’t especially inspired: it opened with the requisite weed jokes, made fun of his oft-imitated laugh, and leaned on some unnecessary celebrity cameos. But if you love Rogen’s slacker comedy, maybe that was exactly what you tuned in for. At least he didn’t tap dance or juggle torches to prove that he’s not just a funny guy.

Voters in our ongoing third annual Mr. Saturday Night contest will have to decide whether Rogen played it too safe for a guy who was hosting for the third time, or if he delivered exactly what the audience wanted.

Last week’s host, Anna Kendrick, sang her way to the top of the poll, scoring 47.8 percent, nearly twice as much as her nearest competitor, Jimmy Fallon, who looks slightly vulnerable for the first time with 24.8 percent. But who knows if Kendrick’s impressive debut will last: Louis C.K. scored 33.1 percent in his first week, but he sank to fourth in his second frame, with only 8.72 percent. Some of Josh Hutcherson‘s fans took the week off, apparently, as he went from 22.9 to 10.0 percent, still enough to hold third place. Sadly, Melissa McCarthy‘s luck finally ran out after narrowly skirting elimination for three straight weeks; she barely trailed Louis C.K. with 8.70 percent. READ FULL STORY

'Saturday Night Live' recap: Seth Rogen gets an evening of predictable jokes

The Seth-Rogen-likes-weed jokes will never get old, apparently. And Seth Rogen knows it.

In the third-time host’s monologue, Rogen read from a journal documenting his time at 30 Rock preparing for Saturday Night Live, including: “Just got pitched about 50 ideas about weed. Unfortunately, we can only do about 10 of them.” The Pineapple Express star milked the line, but this wasn’t the only drug-tinged joke of the night — surprise!

Though it did seem like we were going to escape the episode without an entire sketch dedicated to the munchies, Rogen’s onscreen stoner reputation prevailed. The second-to-last skit starred a spectacularly goofy Kyle Mooney as a weed enthusiast who doesn’t actually smoke pot. Rogen made an appearance in it as a drug dealer, and the two bonded over a weird song. It was all very weird, actually. And not very funny.

Rogen excelled in the non-drug-themed skits, particularly when he played a clumsy husband opposite wife Aidy Bryant, who was stuck with two arm casts and needed his help in everything, from raising a glass at dinner to applying lipstick.
