Life after Saturday Night Live has been very good to some. Make a name for yourself on the long-running sketch comedy show and the sky can become the limit. From Eddie Murphy to Chris Rock to Will Ferrell (Anchorman 2), SNL has brought us some of the great comedic minds in recent history.
Andy Samberg, a recent SNL graduate, is the latest funnyman to find success through the popular TV series.

The 2012 Licensing Expo always gives us some good looks at materials related to upcoming films – be it posters, logos, concept art – or in this case, costumes put on display for attendees. Undoubtedly one the biggest blockbusters coming in 2013 is DC Comics/Warner Bros.’ Superman reboot, Man of Steel, so the studio isn’t wasting time promoting the flick.
It is known that Man of Steel will present a modernized version of Superman – as related to the new version of the character recently unveiled in DC Comics’ “New 52″ reboot. This includes a different backstory, slightly altered powers (more vulnerability) – and yes, wardrobe changes as well.
The new costumes featured here belong to Superman’s Kryptonian birth father, Jor-El (Russell Crowe), the villain Faora (Antje Traue), and Superman himself (Henry Cavill). Taking from the “New 52″ revised mythology, Superman’s iconic suit is now made of a Kryptonian ...

Some familiar faces will be gracing Showtime’s airwaves very soon, as the cable channel has announced that two new dramas, Ray Donovan (starring Liev Schreiber) and Masters of Sex (with Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, above) have both been given full season orders.
For Schreiber, whose long list of film credits includes blockbusters like X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Salt and the first three Scream films, Ray Donovan marks the actor’s first foray into a lead role on a TV series. The program is set in present-day Los Angeles, and centers on the titular Ray Donovan (Schreiber), a professional “trouble-shooter” or “fixer,” who has built a reputation amongst the city’s elite as the best person to handle their problems. The plot sounds like Donovan is something of a Michael Clayton type, with his ability to handle the issues ...

In Superman vs. The Elite, the Man of Steel faces his most daunting foe yet: public opinion. In an era where the realities of terrorism and global strife have created a cynical and hardline attitudes about the concept of “justice,” Superman’s idealistic optimism seems more and more outdated (both in the film, and in the real-world). So when a group of younger super-powered vigilantes known as The Elite appear on the scene, Superman is not prepared for their brutal stance against criminals – nor the resounding public approval that follows.
The greatest super hero in the world soon discovers that changing times and public opinion are not things that even his god-like powers can control. Even with the world turning away from him, Superman must find some ...
