'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Could Include 'Some Romance' for The Hulk, Says Mark Ruffalo

Posted By Drew Taylor on October 10, 2014

These 'SNL' Spoofs of the Matthew McConaughey Lincoln Commercials Are Hilariously Dead-On (VIDEO)

Posted By Drew Taylor on October 10, 2014
It's no secret that we love the bizarre Matthew McConaughey Lincoln commercials where he waxes philosophical while driving a luxury SUV through the urban canyons of Los Angeles. ("Drive" filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn maybe unsurprisingly, directed those spots.) They are just so perversely odd. But you know that you haven't really breached the cultural zeitgeist until you've been parodied on...

Watch What Just May Be the Most WTF Sketch in 'Saturday Night Live's' 40-Year History

Posted By Drew Taylor on October 10, 2014
While "Saturday Night Live" is long (sometimes painfully so), the producers still aren't able to include everything that is intended for any given episode. Things have to be cut, and sometimes those odds and ends wind up online.
