I Shot a Man in Reno...


· ...just to watch a long-running series die. According to Thomas Lennon's Twitter, Reno 911! was canceled by Comedy Central today after producing six seasons and one feature film. Wriggle into a pair of short shorts and improvise something sexually inappropriate in its honor.

· Kristen Stewart: so endearingly awkward when attempting to describe the weirdly maternal affection she has for Taylor Lautner. The latest example? "I love that kid," she tells EW. "I would do anything for him. I would kill for him, literally."

· Good news, Avatards! If, for some reason, you can't secure a ticket to Avatar Day, you can always watch the mundane two-minute trailer that will thankfully be playing before Inglourious Basterds.

· By the way, do you want to view the weakest sequence from Basterds in graphic novel form? Playboy's got it!

· FX is high on its upcoming Timothy Olyphant drama Lawman; here's a taste.

· Actor Jerry O'Connell has enrolled in Southwestern Law School. Well, who didn't see that coming?

    Although I felt it somewhat perfunctory, Reno 911! was also peppered with some truly hilarious scenarios and dialogue. Thanks in no small part to the brilliant Kerri Kenney. Six seasons though? Way more than enough.

    1. Last time I tried that I met the real Reno 911.
    2. She has, check the crawlspace of her house! Oh wait, that's her "post-Twilight" career.
    3. I got a bad feeling about Avatar... I smell turkey cooking and I don't know why.
    4. Yeah, but for some reason the drawings of Brad Pitt have all of his features photoshopped away and he has big silicon breasts.
    5. TV needs more redneck law enforcement. Lots more.
    6. About he got off my couch and did something with his life. Wait, wrong Jerry.

    That's too bad about Reno 911. I fell like I'm in the minority here, but I enjoyed the shit out of the movie, and was really expecting a sequel. I mean, there has to be $10 million loose dollars lying around Hollywood to bring that fantastic cast of high-brow-low-brow comedians back to the silver screen right?
    Tom Lennon has nothing to worry about though. I think him and Ben Garrant made enough money from penning the night at the Museum films to buy at least a small Casino in Truckee.

    I don't know anyone that has any interest in Jim C's film. I don't think it'll be the mega hit some are forecasting...probably Spider Man-like grosses? A large part of this might be idiot America not knowing how to pronounce 'Avatar', I think...
