We were already signed on to watch Marry Me, the new NBC single-cam from Happy Ending creator David Caspe, when we learned that Eastbound & Down actor Ken Marino has been cast across from Caspe’s real-life fiancé Casey Wilson as the male half of the show’s lead couple. So basically David Caspe is just hitting it out of the park, and that’s not even factoring the repeated, inherently-flattering comparisons between Marry Me and Mad About You.
The Kevin Hart-Ice Cube comedy “Ride Along” pulled off a box-office three-peat this weekend, holding off Zac Efron’s “That Awkward Moment” with an estimated $12.3 million. The R-rated bro-mantic comedy starring Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan took in $9 million and was in a tight race for second with Disney’s animated hit “Frozen,” which got $2.2 million from sing-along versions in more than 2,000 theaters nationwide, skating to an estimated $9.3 million.
After the sudden death of Philip Seymour Hoffman yesterday, tributes have been pouring in.

The film reunites Entourage stars Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrera, Kevin Dillon, and Jeremy Piven, and continues to follow the Hollywood adventures of Vinnie Chase (Grenier) and his crew.
Jerry Seinfeld is confirming there’s going to be a Seinfeld reunion! Well, for the most part. During an appearance on Wfan’s Boomer & Carton radio show in NYC this morning, the 59-year-old actor was asked about a recent photo that showed him and costar Jason Alexander outside of Tom’s restaurant, the famed eatery where much of their hit TV show took place.
“Game of Thrones" won’t return to HBO until Sunday, April 17, with the fourth season continuing to adapt the events from George R.R. Martin's third book in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, “A Storm of Swords.” But if you want a taste of what life in Westeros (and Essos) will look like in the new season, HBO released a bunch of new photos today, including lots of familiar faces like Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey, but also some new actors playing older characters (Michiel Huisman as the new Daario) and new faces altogether (Pedro Pascal and Indira Varma as two newbies)
Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity” won a significant victory in its tight race with Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave” and David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” on Saturday, as Cuaron was named the year’s best director at the Directors Guild of America Awards.
The studio announced plans to show the commercial during the big game on Tuesday, just days before the Seattle Seahawks face off against the Denver Broncos on Feb. 2. It will air before the kick-off, after the national anthem.
The Academy’s music branch can always be counted on for at least one out-of-nowhere surprise in the Best Original Song category. Remember “Paris 36?” Or “Chasing Ice?” Or “August Rush?” Forgotten them all? No one would blame you. Anyway, they seem to have truly outdone themselves this year. There were audible gasps and chuckles when Cheryl Boone Isaacs began reading the list of nominees in the category, and first off the bat was “Alone Yet Not Alone” from, er, “Alone Yet Not Alone.”
There were a lot of uncomfortable moments at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, from Jacqueline Bisset's rambling acceptance speech to Diane Keaton's impromptu serenade for Woody Allen, recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award. But amid the nervous looks and awkward laughter, there was a specific set of stars who couldn’t have had a better night: the former faces of Saturday Night Live. In addition to hosting, Amy Poehler took home a best comedic TV actress Golden Globe for her role on Parks & Recreation, an honor she celebrated by making out with Bono.
