Bradley Cooper to Reprise Gay Role in Wet Hot American Summer

Netflix announced recently that it is bringing back 2001 satirical teen-sex comedy Wet Hot American Summer in eight brand new episodes that will be released on the streaming service.

If that wasn’t exciting enough, Net Now Next reports that it will feature most of the original cast—lots of greats like Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks and Philly’s own Bradley Cooper, who, are you sitting, will reprise his role as a gay camp counselor.

If you’ve seen the original, you no doubt have the steamy sex scene between Cooper and co-star Michael Ian Black in the camp’s tool shed etched in your brain. If you haven’t, well here you go (and you’re welcome):

So far there’s not official release date for the series, but you can bet we’ll be waiting impatiently.

 

WATCH: Ellen Responds to Pastor Who Says She and Taylor Swift Are Turning Kids Gay

Openly gay TV show host Ellen Degeneres used the opening monologue of her talk show recently to address crazy-pants pastor Larry Tomczak—you know, the guy who wrote that she and Taylor Swift were turning kids into homosexuals.

He said that Ellen subjecting our youth to our gay ways by “celebrating her lesbianism and ‘marriage’ in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls.”

Ellen responded by saying that “I don’t even know what it means to celebrate my lesbianism. …I don’t have an agenda. … I’m not here to brainwash anyone but listen to the sound of my voice. Attention youth of the world, I want you to live your lives being exactly as you are. The most important thing is to be true to yourself. … The only way I’m trying to influence people is to be more kind and compassionate with one another.”

It’s way more fun to watch the monologue, which is injected with special effects and party streamers. See it out below:

CBS announced today that Stephen Colbert will take over David Letterman’s spot on The Late Show starting September 8th—that’s a good 3-plus months after Letterman makes his official stepdown on May 20th.

Deadline reports that CBS will air reruns of its primetime shows at 11:30 p.m., and the network is in talks with Letterman about special programming leading up to his departure.

What does Colbert, who ended his time on The Colbert Report last month, have planned for the time gap?

“I have nine months to make a show, just like a baby. So first, I should find out how you make a baby.”

Our Golden Globes Roundup: The Good, The Bad, and The Cosby

From NBC.

From NBC.

This is the first awards season that we are lacking Joan Rivers and her always snarky (but true) commentary on the Hollywood red carpet. However, Joan would be proud: One of the subtle themes running through the 2015 Golden Globe Awards, held on Sunday evening, was the empowerment of women and other sexual minorities. Of course, things weren’t too serious: There were plenty of jokes (some in poor taste) and lots of poking fun at North Korea. We figured we’d try to fill in the void of Ms. Rivers by presenting our highlights of the best and worst moments of last evening’s festivities, co-hosted by hometown hero, Tina Fey (and, of course, Amy Poehler).

Comcast Says It Will Offer Super-Fast “Gigabit” Service This Year

Comcast’s Internet service is about to get blazingly fast, Gizmodo reports:

In an exciting if suspicious announcement today, Comcast, everybody’s least favorite company, just told an audience at CES that it would start offering home customers gigabit internet speeds in 2015.

That would be a huge improvement, since Comcast’s current “Extreme” plan only offers speeds up to 150 megabits per second. It remains unclear exactly how many customers would get Comcast’s new headline-grabbing gigabit offering. Comcast has been dangling the possibility of offering these speeds for a while. A couple years ago, it showcased the ability to achieve 3 Gb/s speeds on its network and announced last year that some of its customers would enjoy all fiber networks. It even trademarked a catchy name for a new service: “True Gig.”
