Anyone that enjoys the Marvel Universe knows that all deaths aren’t really final. On this past Thursday FOX cancelled several shows as we reported previously. While other shows did get a good deal of press and fan reaction, no show had the sudden outpouring of grief like Brooklyn Nine Nine. The show, which stars Andy Samberg who was integral to the rise of Youtube (due to his SNL digital shorts made with his Lonely Island partners) has been picked up by NBC. Andy’s Jake Peralta is a detective in the 99th Precinct. The show has several other stand-outs like Terry Crews, Joe Lo Truglio, Chelsea Peretti (who is married to Jordan Peele) and Andre Braugher.

Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut.
Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s another Star Wars Stands Up 2 Cancer video featuring Bill Hader, Seth Rogen, Andy Samberg, Emma Stone, Aziz Ansari, Jaime King, Zach Galifinakis, Ken Jeong, and Samuel L. Jackson. This one goes in a slightly more serious direction as the stars talk about how cancer has affected them. But don’t worry, there are still plenty of dorky lightsaber gags.
We touched on this briefly in Nerdy Bits earlier today, but since then Stand Up To Cancer and Lucasfilm have released a video celebrating their new collaboration. In it some Star Wars fans, who also happen to be celebrities, reenact famous scenes from the original trilogy to raise awareness for the new charitable venture.
Aziz Ansari, Emma Stone, Andy Samberg, Ed Helms, Seth Rogen, Zach Galifianakis, Ken Jeong, Jamie King and Samuel L. Jackson all take part is this amusing video. I really wanted this to be outstanding and hilarious, but it just didn’t quite deliver, it’s worth a watch though. Whether it’s funny or not doesn’t really matter , it’s to support the cancer-stopping powers of the organization Stand Up To Cancer. Or at least their possibly, hopefully we’ll one day cure cancer powers.
The t-shirts shown in the vid are available for purchases over at their website, www.standup2cancer.org/usetheforce. But in addition to sweet tees you can also bid on some swanky stuff, like a “one-of-a-kind Star Wars edition 2012 Volkswagen Passat and dinner with filmmakers including George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola, John Lasseter, Chris Columbus and Phillip Kaufman.” Yes, dinner with George Lucas. Maybe you can mention what you thought about the Blu-rays….err, maybe you shouldn’t mention that. To bid on the auction items check out their eBay page.
Oh SNL and your topical humor. Nothing escapes being made fun in your clutches. So it is no wonder that they recently poked fun at the new Spiderman musical, Spiderman: Turn off the Dark. This musical with an outrageous budget, a plethora of pre-production mishaps and music from Bono and The Edge it’s pretty easy for the show to poke fun at.
Seth Meyer’s did a mock interview in his new segment sketch, Weekend Update. Andy Samberg plays the fourth under study of the cast who is now playing lead dues to the injuries received by the previous three spideys’ in the interview with Seth delving great lines like,
“You know how many people die each year doing Jersey Boys?!”
Samberg also delivers another hilarious moment when he request an upside down kiss from Seth.
Despite all the bad mojo surrounding the show can it still possibly be good? Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark opens January 11th but you can catch showings now. Who knows, maybe you’ll “flip over it”?! Check out the sketch here!
Just like cool guys never look back at explosions as they slowly,coolly walk away, sometimes in slow mo, sometimes not. The ” We’ve got company” has graced the screens so much it’s actually rediculous. Sometimes they change it up a bit, and we get an even edgier and scarier, “They’re here.” Also in popularity is when someone asks “Are we safe now?” and the lead protagonist sits idle, staring stoically, usually into darkness, for several seconds…Until he just says “..No.”
And THEN after that, the guy also usually says “We’ve got company.” (via Urlesque)
This is Richardson. He is a bit character in the completely underated Hot Rod….He makes me happy when I’m sad, in fact, I find that most Asians doing anything make me take a step back from the ledge. Saving Silverman? The old Asian man falling down the stairs? 16 Candles? ” Oh SEXY GIRLFRIEND!!!!”
You can’t discount any Asian being hilarious, its in their very nature to be hysterical!
