I find it a bit absurd that there's no comment on the possibility for sequels to Trek. It's supposed to be a prequel to the series so we already know that anyone in a red shirt (Scotty excepted) is going to die and the rest of the principals will live. What's the big surprise?

I just can't read these interviews. I see the [Everyone laughs] indicator and it gives me the red ass. Quint- it's bad. Just piles of bad. No one cares about you allegedly making people laugh. Because do you know who is laughing? Those three actors who just had to be interviewed by some jerk from a geek website. Or maybe I just take it all at face value. Benefit of the doubt and such. Fine. How do we know how hard they laughed. I mean, was NPH kind of chuckling, yet Cho was just giggling? Did Penn slap a knee, do a spit take or wet his pants? Or, and get ready for this, was it the obligatory Hollywood shit-eating-grin that they give every donkey who rolls into the media room? Now that's funny.

...only proves the sad, souless, actor laughter and fake smiles they dish 100 times that day.
March 15, 2008, 6:03 a.m. CST
NPH kind of ripped on Jason Mewes pretty hard there. Sure he had some problems for a while there, but he's been sober since Strike Back, right? Hell, even during Strike Back, when he was all doped up, he still carried the whole fuckin' movie admirably. I don't know, perhaps I'm an Askewniverse fanboy, but the Jay and Bob movies are a hell of a lot funnier, and yes, more intelligent, than any fucking Harold and Kumar nonsense. Still respect the Doogie and all, but I don't think he knew what he was talking about. That is all.
March 15, 2008, 6:04 a.m. CST
Whenever an actor says a film is in the "spirit" of the original it's always been code for "we've fucked with the continuity/story lots". If it's a continuation then they could just say that, but if it's in the "spirit" then it likely this is going to be the bastardized half-sequel/half-reboot shit I've been dreading.

For a moment I got my hopes and dreams up because the ONLY "epic return" that would make me grin from ear to ear is if the "big surprise" that JJ Abrams has in store for us all with the new TREK is that it actually ends with KIRK resurrected and pulled out of the fucking silly Nexus Ribbon or whatever the hell it was called -- and thus he can be back in action. THAT would be a cool ending. And it would be a truly great and welcome surprise if it turned out that all this time...with all the interviews and public bitching back and forth about how Shatner wasn't invited to be a part of the movie or how they couldn't come to terms, blah, blah, blah...if Abrams, Shatner and Nimoy had been actually playing the fans all along on a big mislead, and now Kirk would actually show up in the film.<p>Other than that I still think this thing will be an oddity and possible travesty of the first magnitude. Seriously, Shatner and Nimoy are literally global ICONS for their roles and I really don't think junior look-a-like guy and a passable imitator from a faltering TV show are actually going to depose them out of the roles that entire generations have come to love the Shat and Nimoy for...

Before his ten minutes in Harold and Kumar he was a "where are they now" doing voice over work for one of the worst Spiderman cartoons in history. Now he wants to act like he is some comedic genius by throwing Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes under the bus? Wow.

March 15, 2008, 9:56 a.m. CST
All Doogie is saying is that Mewes isn't really an actor, he's just being himself onscreen, and that's the truth. Even Mewe apologists will agree. Plus, you can find a Jason Mewes working in any kitchen in America constantly talking about drugs, sex, and other guys' cocks. It gets old really quick.

Quint, your research sucks balls, because you should know that NPH plays only the funniest, scene-stealingist, hedonistic bastard to ever lose a Slap Bet on "How I Met Your Mother."<br><br>He's the King of Awesome, the Prince of Suiting Up, he's LEGEN... wait for it... DARY!!!<br><br>Come on man, it's just about the funniest show on television, and he's the reason why. You should check it out on iTunes. Highly recommend it.

I'd have to kick him out of a moving vehicle. I enjoy his schtick in small doses, but his entire career, thankfully, is Jay.

I agree. This is the best sitcom on tv nowadays. And I usually hate sitcoms. It also features Jason Siegel and Allison Hannigan.
March 15, 2008, 1:55 p.m. CST
To me I think the guy has been extremely lucky and has a certain talent. The reason I really want to tell NPH to fuck off is that i've been where Mewe's has and it's no easy task to get your life back in order after the fact. It's the whole people in glass houses arguement to me. I'm not dogging the guy out I just think he made dumb comment. He could have just as easily made the same comments about Cheech Marin.
March 15, 2008, 1:56 p.m. CST
Isn't it weird on "How I Met Your Mother" that we're supposed to like Ted and Robin the most, but Barney, Lily, and Marshall are the true backbone of the show.<br><br>Sometimes, Ted gets a little too, well, Ross-like, and when he does that, he's not likable at all. And while Robin has had her moments and is hot, I find that a little of her goes a long way.<br><br>I want more Lily and Marshall, and I definitely want more Barney back story. All of the best episodes revolve around those characters, where their plots are the best. Think about Slap Bet, which originally was supposed to be all about Robin "Sparkles" and became about the awesome slappage. Or about Stuff, which was supposed to be about Robin being a wet blanket about Ted's ex-girlfriend's stuff, but instead we remember Lily's awful play, the word "moist," Barney's worse play, and of course, Slap Number 2. Then we have the absolute best episode so far, Slapsgiving, featuring Marshall emotionally and mentally torturing Barney up until the final second when Slap Number 3 is administered, and then the song which followed!<br><br>Man, there are things that happen in this show, new phrases and words are invented... it's very "Seinfeld" like in its originality.<br><br>This show oozes AWESOME.

Fair point. NPH is, I think, alludiing to the FACT that Mewes is not an actor per se. He is, in fact, playing himself - funny as it may be - as himself in those movies. You cannot imagine Mewes playing, for example, a kinky space Nazi as in STARSHIP TROOPERS. Or the child genius in DOOGIE HOWSER MD. Although he could maybe pull off the drug scenes in H&K WHITE CASTLE.<P> And as for all this "I've been where Mewes was...", for fuck's sake, NPH is calling him out on his lack of acting ability. Which is entirely justified. SO you go on and wallow in the greatness that is your "descent to hell and return from it", then go write a misery memoir about it and then get it on Oprah's Book Club and become a fucking millionaire from everyone else buying your book about how you did something fucking stupid and then stopped one day.<P> No-one's saying drug recovery is easy... but it is a fucking stupid thing to do in the first place, and it doesn't entitle you to more sympathy, or to any more plaudits about how hard your poor life must have been, when you could, in fact, have just NOT DONE THEM.<P> God. This fucking self-pity bullshit winds me up.

March 15, 2008, 3:32 p.m. CST
I think he's right, the fear of the momentum he's earned through two stoner comedies (that ended up being better movies than they were supposed to be,) especially playing himself, will end the minute he tries to parlay that into some kind of vanity vehicle. As cool as he is, can you imagine how lame it'll be trying to carry a whole movie, playing himself? Who wants to see that? Know when to quit, buddy. Take another funny role somewhere else.
March 15, 2008, 3:34 p.m. CST

Posted at whedonesque[dot]com by Joss <p> So..... <p> The bag is catless. <p> During the strike I started writing a musical intended as a limited internet series, 3 episodes of approximately 10 minutes each. Writing with me was my brother Jed, his fiancee Maurissa, and my other brother Zack. To my shock and surprise, we finished it. To my greater shock and surprise, we managed (with the help of many people I'll be praising at length soon) to drag it into preproduction (yes, just as DOLLHOUSE was given a start date two months away and all my comics were due.) And today, after a grueling week of writing everything ever while trying to be a producer, I got to start shooting. A musical. <p> This much I will say: It's the story of a low-rent super-villain, the hero who keeps beating him up, and the cute girl from the laundromat he's too shy to talk to. And I'm having the time of my life. <p> "DOCTOR HORRIBLE'S SING-ALONG BLOG" <p> Neil Patrick Harris.....as Dr. Horrible Nathan Fillion..........as Captain Hammer Felicia Day.............as Penny And a cast of Dozens! <p> Coming soon. <p> -j.

First of all, if they leave out the Greek Pantheon, they leave out half the story. Also, the original "Iliad" is an unbelievably perfect story. Unfortunately, Indy films don't have a 100 million dollar budgets, so it couldn't be done true to Homer. Basically (I'm totally butchering the tale here, but...) but it is a tale of Achilles and Agamemnon starting a fight and settling their differences; juxtaposed against the "largest battle in history". Pure win if done right.

I was wondering the same thing. I didn't get an invite to a press screening so I'll assume there wasn't one here in Austin... but that could be due to SXSW. I'm insanely curious about the movie because, as you said, I'm all up on Marshall's dock so far. And I love Mad Max and it looks like he does, too. SXSW ended tonight...

I havn't heard someone be that full of themselves on this site in a while. NPH made that comment to try and suck up to his co-stars and made himself look like an ass in the process. The reason I brought my shit into it,was to make a point, and the point was that nobody is perfect. I'm sure Mewes isn't the only person in Hollywood to have a drug problem. He admitted it got help and moved on. Same thing with Ben Affleck, Matthew Perry and countless others.Is Mewes a great actor? Given his limited on the job training I would say he can hold his own in the roles he's been given. As far as the drug thing goes, I don't want pitty from anyone, I did my shit and moved on. I just think that it's kind of shitty of NPH to have brought that up. I knew I was gonna get shit for taking up for Mewes and Smith but that shit doesn't phase me. I'm over it already.

NPH called out Mewes because people still mistake Mewes for an actor when really all he does is play himself in the movies he's done. He's by no stretch of the imagination an actor. It's kind of demeaning for someone who does understand, and is well versed in, the actual craft of acting to have to be compared to a strung out cokehead playing a strung out cokehead. There's no skill involved in what Mewes does. Yes, it's great that he stopped all that stupid shit with the drugs, and yes he's funny as Jay in the Askewniverse movies, but shit - call him what he is: an ex-junkie who plays junkies. He's NOT a fucking actor., Acting actually takes skills, skills that Mewes just does not have. This is why NPH called him out: actors and junkies are lightyears apart - putting them both on the silver screen DOES NOT make them equals.<P> This discussion not withstanding, NPH rules. Especially in STARSHIP TROOPERS.
