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

When Billie (Charlotte Newhouse) applies for a babysitting job, she imagines changing diapers and filling baby bottles. But instead she’s stuck with Gene (Jillian Bell), a filthy rich grown woman under house arrest who needs adult supervision.

Actors from failed NBC pilot make their own web series

Rejection sucks. Just ask the co-stars of failed NBC pilot Downwardly Mobile. The trailer park sitcom, which would have reunited Roseanne‘s Roseanne Barr and John Goodman, wasn’t picked for NBC’s fall lineup, leaving the cast in a lurch. But, undeterred, the five secondary leads — Jason Antoon, Mary Birdsong, Greg Cromer, Tricia O’Kelley, and Romy Rosemont — have taken to YouTube to continue working together. The resulting web series, called Bitter, Party of 5, subscribes to the adage that “art imitates life.” The setup: five actors who learn that their NBC pilot (called…Downwardly Mobile) wasn’t picked up take to the web to produce a low-budget talk show.

YouTube is becoming a viable launchpad for entertainers – notable examples include Psy’s “Gangnam Style” and the Comedy Central hit Workaholics. And as the cable market continues to embrace these sorts of TV biz meta-comedies – Curb Your Enthusiasm, Episodes – this cheeky series could well take off in its own right.

Watch the first episode after the jump, and let us know in the comments if the show’s got staying power.

Jason Bateman tweets pic from 'Arrested Development' set: 3 theories for what it could be

Jason Bateman made the opposite of a huge mistake today: He gave us a tiny gift of photography, wrapped up in a bow of mystery. Accompanied by the words “First day. Away we go…,” he tweeted a photo, presumably from the set of Arrested Development, the beloved cult comedy that is returning from the land of cancellation with new episodes. (Ten fresh installments will arrive on Netflix in 2013.)

The photo doesn’t show Bateman or any of our other cast members, all of whom are expected to return for the fourth season. But two-thirds of a very familiar trio are visible: Workaholics‘ Adam DeVine and Anders Holm. (Is Blake Anderson just out of frame?) There is a connection here: Arrested mastermind Mitch Hurwitz popped up as Cool Eric on Workaholics last year. Check out the full shot below: READ FULL STORY
