Parks and Recreation co-creator Mike Schur has spoken up about yet another important aspect of the forthcoming fourth season in the series: the appearance of Tammy 1.

Throughout the show, we’ve known that Ron Swanson has two ex-wives, both named Tammy. Tammy 2, as she became known, was portrayed by Nick Offerman’s real-life spouse Megan Mullally, but Tammy 1 will be brought around by Patricia Clarkson.

Back when she was cast for the role, Offerman said, “I’m lucky enough to be pals with [Patricia], and I was involved in trying to woo her to the show . . . So Megan and I were just over the moon.”

Well, now that season four is just around the bend (September 22nd), it’s time to hear a little more, and Mike Schur is the man for the job.

Speaking to Zap2it, Schur offered a few morsels of information about what we should expect from Tammy 1 this season.

“I think what the audience will be surprised to learn is that Tammy 2, played by the gorgeous Megan Mullally, may turn out to be the most kitten-like, timid woman of the Tammys. I am about as giggly as a schoolgirl to be in a position where I’m portraying a man who’s made love to both Megan Mullally and Patricia Clarkson. That is a consummation devoutly to be wished.”

“The relationship she has with Ron is not as hedonistic, animal attraction, pure and simple, that we’ve seen before . . . They have a much different, more complicated, rich backstory that we get into. The point of casting Patricia Clarkson was to let her be Patricia Clarkson, and I think we accomplished that.”

What do you think about Schur’s preview information? Excited for season 4 yet?

90 minutes into an embarrassing year for the MTV VMAs, a bright light appeared: Beyoncé.

Beyoncé’s 2016 MTV VMA performance may go down as one of the best in the award show’s history. The Lemonade singer flawlessly moved through “Pray You Catch Me,” “Hold Up,” “Sorry,” “Don’t Hurt Yourself” (featuring a Cruella de Vil-like wardrobe), and “Formation,” each with their own themes and stunning visuals. (That fire! That broken camera! The feminism!)

90 minutes into an embarrassing year for the MTV VMAs, a bright light appeared: Beyoncé.

Beyoncé’s 2016 MTV VMA performance may go down as one of the best in the award show’s history. The Lemonade singer flawlessly moved through “Pray You Catch Me,” “Hold Up,” “Sorry,” “Don’t Hurt Yourself” (featuring a Cruella de Vil-like wardrobe), and “Formation,” each with their own themes and stunning visuals. (That fire! That broken camera! The feminism!)

Watch Beyoncé’s full 2016 MTV VMA performance below:

The performance was a bit of a surprise. Though MTV hinted that she’d be showing up, no one expected a 15-minute performance.

The 2016 MTV VMAs were disappointing to say the least. The first two award winners — the only two awards presented in the first 2 hours of the show — weren’t present to receive them (Drake was apparently stuck in traffic, according to P Diddy).

And peppered throughout the performances were Key and Peele, who were playing commentators who just mocked millennials and their lingo. Bizarre, when you realize that they’re just making fun of the show’s core audience for hours.

Then Britney Spears had to follow Beyoncé with a performance of “Make Me” with G-Eazy. Poor Britney! No one should have to follow a Beyoncé performance like the one above.

It’s funny how Beyoncé feels compelled to perform at the garbage that are the MTV VMAs. They don’t deserve her. There are only two legitimate reasons why she could be interested in doing this: To inspire, and to promote the Formation World Tour.

Marvel reveals what Thor was really up to during ‘Civil War’ in amazing new video

"And who's this purple weirdo?"

3:38 pm EDT, August 28, 2016

Have you found yourself curious about just where Thor ended up whilst his team mates were duking it out during Captain America: Civil War? Well, wonder no longer, as Marvel has finally revealed the truth.

We’ve all mulled the question over in our heads, since the line-up for Civil War was revealed. Where were Thor and Bruce Banner hiding out whilst the Sokovia Accords were tearing their team apart?

The answer was revealed in a mockumentary clip, directed by Thor: Ragnarok helmer Taika Waititi, which debuted during San Diego Comic-Con this past summer — where it received an enthusiastic response. But, for those fans left at home, and without a coveted seat in Hall H, the answer still remained painfully out of reach.

Until now.

Released in anticipation of the Civil War DVD and Blu-ray release, this short is now available to the masses, and we couldn’t happier — not least because it’s just as hilarious as promised.

That’s right. As Tony and Steve were duking it out, Thor was Down Under, chilling with his new buddy Darryl and engaging in a little community service.

It’s definitely worth checking out for yourself, and we won’t spoil any of the more hilarious touches — especially some of Thor’s… artistic interpretations of certain Avengers team members. We’re definitely not going to be able to look at Nick Fury in the same way, ever again.

(Also, if you’ve been having difficulty tracking the Infinity Stones, Thor has the perfect solution for you!)

Rest assured that, if this mockumentary is anything to go by, Thor: Ragnarok is in very capable hands. We’re certainly looking forward to a Rainbow road bridge-tripping adventure across the universe with Thor and Hulk.

Especially if it allows Chris Hemsworth to show off more of his comedy chops, as seen in the above clip.

Captain America: Civil War is released in Digital HD on September 2, and on Blu-ray and DVD on September 13. Thor: Ragnarok will be heading to theaters on November 3, 2017.

Which ‘team’ are you on now? Team Cap, Team Iron Man, or… Team Thor?

The upcoming 25th anniversary edition of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast includes a couple of first looks at next year’s live-action adaptation.

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been a quarter of a century since the animated Beauty and the Beast hit movie theaters. To celebrate the occasion Disney is putting out an anniversary edition, and its special features section includes a treat: Our first look at Cogsworth and Lumière in the live-action installment, as well as a glimpse of a scene within Gaston’s tavern.

As confirmed by producer Jack Morrissey on Facebook, this photo of Cogsworth (played by Ian McKellen) and Lumière (Ewan McGregor) is concept art, but it gives us a sense of the style that director Bill Condon is shooting for:

While it’s nice to finally see a glimpse of a couple of the characters, a big question remains unanswered: How will these objects look once they have faces on them? (Cogsworth’s face might be hinted at in the center of the clock.)

Also on the Beauty and the Beast 25th Anniversary Edition is a shot from the the “Gaston” musical number. From left to right we see Alexis Loizon as Stanley, Josh Gad as LeFou (just over Gaston’s shoulder), and Luke Evans (with his back to the camera) as Gaston.

Update: And here’s another look at the movie, courtesy of this person on Twitter — this time we get to see Dan Stevens as human Beast!

We’ll be curious to get our hands on the anniversary edition in September, because we expect we’ll see more from the new movie than the two stills above.

Disney released the first trailer for the live-action Beauty and the Beast in May. It was very much a teaser trailer, as it didn’t provide any looks at the characters — except Belle (Emma Watson), appearing through the glass casing protecting the film’s iconic rose.

In fact, the trailer’s first looks at the various settings (Namely the Beast’s castle) fell in line with the visual style we see in the above concept art.

Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens hit theaters March 17, 2017.
