Michael Sheen joins Finding Dory voice cast

Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated actor Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex) will lend his voice to Pixar’s Finding Dory, this year’s sequel to the 2003 hit Finding Nemo.

The news comes from an episode of the podcast Doug Loves Movies, hosted by Doug Benson (Super High Me), which was released about two weeks back. Towards the end of the January 13th episode, on which Greg Proops and Julian McCullough also guested, when asked if he had any upcoming projects to plug, Sheen casually brought up his involvement in the sequel. The actor said, “Finding Nemo 2 should be coming out at some point… which I’m in.”

In 2016, Sheen will also be reprising his role as the White Rabbit from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland in Alice Through the Looking Glass; in addition to that, he will act alongside Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt in Morten Tyldum’s Passengers.

Comedian Doug Benson Sues to Block ‘Super High Me’ Stoner Documentary Sequel

Comedian Doug Benson Sues to Block ‘Super High Me’ Stoner Documentary Sequel
Don’t bogart that joint agreement, my friend. Weed-friendly comedian Doug Benson is suing his partners on the documentary “Super High Me,” claiming that they harshed his mellow by attempting to make a follow-up to the film against his will. In his suit, filed in federal court in California, the former host of Comedy Central’s “The Benson Interruption” claims that he formed Four Twenty Partners with DJ Paul, Alex Campbell and another partner to produce the documentary “Super High Me,” which “sought to document the effects of cannabis on Benson by following him through 30 straight days of cannabis-free living,

Doug Benson's Netflix doc on Comic-Con gets it surprisingly right

Doug Benson's Netflix doc on Comic-Con gets it surprisingly right
Doug Benson's rambling pot-fueled documentaries are all basically just an excuse for the comic to get very high in different locations, but in the process of putting the latest one together, he and director Ryan Polito have put together something that captures Comic-Con in a very accurate and not romanticized way. This was a pretty solid year for me and Comic-Con, and so was last year. I enjoyed myself both times, so I guess technically I can't say I hate Comic-Con anymore, although that's been my mantra for a while. I think the accurate way of saying it is that I often hate elements of the experience of Comic-Con. There is a certain amount of hassle that goes with attendance that can just wear on you when you're trying to work, things that might never bother someone who is just attending for pleasure. It's easy to forget when you're

Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet Frankenstein (1999)

In this animated adventure, Alvin, Simon, and Theodore revel in their new gig at a movie theme park by wandering the grounds after hours. Among the attractions is the spooky Frankenstein’s Castle, where a real mad scientist is bringing the monster to life. But when the boys cross paths with the creature (Frank Welker), they soon learn that appearances can be deceiving, and Frankenstein is more misunderstood than malevolent.

Watch the first clip from Doug Benson's 'Doug Dynasty' Netflix special
Sure, original series like House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black get all the digital ink, but Netflix's strongest original programming lies in the incredible string of stand-up specials the service has premiered. Like HBO or Comedy Central before them, Netflix has become an outlet for long-form comedy for both established names (Aziz Ansari, Chelsea Handler, Marc Maron) and up-and-comers (Moshe Kasher, Jim Jeffries). Add comic and compulsive podcaster Doug Benson to that list of talent. His new special, Doug Dynasty, will be premiering on Netflix on Nov. 6. If you know Benson, it's either because you listen to

SXSW: Comedian Doug Benson and friends take on 'Big Trouble In Little China'
Depending on your perspective, comedian Doug Benson is either best known as a movie aficionado (he hosts the hit podcast Doug Loves Movies) or as a comedic hero to weed smokers everywhere (he directed the hilarious documentary Super High Me and recently launched a video podcast called Getting Doug With High that features him getting stoned with comic friends).

The former was on display on the last day of the annual South By Southwest festival when Benson hosted Doug Benson’s Movie Interruption at the Alamo Draft House Ritz in Austin. The Movie Interruption is a simple premise: Benson screens a movie,

Doug Benson’s ‘Greatest Movie Ever Rolled’ Chills on Chill.com

Doug Benson, who starred in the ridiculous 2007 documentary Super High Me, has decided to make another movie, The Greatest Movie Ever Rolled. The premise? It's a film about raising money for the film itself, making it the Ouroboros of comedy documentaries. With such a wacky concept, it's natural for Benson's doc to find its home on the wacky world of the Internet. Sure enough, he is releasing it through the Chill Direct pay-to-view platform, where fans can access it for $7.99. Maria Bamford previous inaugurated Chill Direct with a comedy special of her own, and Benson now adds a more laid-back, smoky perspective to the platform's offerings. After all, this is the guy who starred in Super High Me, a marijuana-fueled take on Morgan Spurlock's Super Size Me, in which Benson smoked weed every day for 30 days and recorded the results. If Greatest Movie Ever Rolled's title and trailer are to be believed,

Fantastic Fest: ‘The Greatest Movie Ever Rolled’ Gets High on the Road with Doug Benson

Doug Benson is very funny. Whether or not you agree with the above statement is a good barometer of how you’ll feel about the perpetually inebriated comedian’s latest film, The Greatest Movie Ever Rolled. Unlike his previous effort, Super High Me, this one is akin to a Morgan Spurlock documentary in name only. This one follows Benson on tour with comedy partner Graham Elwood as they traverse through the American midwest. It’s not about smoking marijuana for 30 consecutive days, although that probably happens within the film. This movie is simply a road movie. Two comedians and the open road. Which is where it begins to rely heavily on how much you are entertained by these two men. From a technical standpoint, it’s a capably made documentary. Director Ryan Polito, whose major credits include a number of Taylor Swift concert films, has knack for keeping things naturalistic and cutting out a lot of the

Comedy podcasts are booming. What are some of your favorites?
These are heady times to be a comedy nerd with an Internet connection. The past couple of years have seen an explosion of comedy podcasts, and in this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly (on stands June 24), we profile the man behind one of the best and most-buzzed-about ones out there: stand-up comedian Marc Maron, whose twice-weekly podcast, Wtf, features fascinating and often astonishingly raw and intimate conversations with some of the biggest names in comedy (including Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Fallon, and Amy Poehler, among many others) — nearly all of them done in Maron’s cluttered garage in Los Angeles.

'The Voice' Reactions, 'Fast Five' Reviews And Miley Cyrus Meets 'Thor' In Today's Twitter-Wood

'The Voice' Reactions, 'Fast Five' Reviews And Miley Cyrus Meets 'Thor' In Today's Twitter-Wood
After months of promotion (it felt like years), "The Voice" finally premiered last night to huge numbers. During the show, the twitter-verse exploded, and tweet-shrapnel came from every which way, including Hollywood.

Meanwhile, the opening of "Thor" mightily approaches, and actress/singer Miley Cyrus wants in. While she's not billed for the film, Miley posted her own addition to the superhero epic. We have a feeling it's not going to make the final cut, but hey, here's hoping. All this and "Fast Five" is already receiving rave reviews -- and one outlet just doesn't get it.

'Bill And Ted 3' Script, 'Water For Elephants' Reviews, 'Game Of Thrones' Worship In Today's Twitter-Wood
It's Monday, which means the internet is basking in the glow of yesterday's brand new episode of "Game of Thrones." If you went anywhere near a computer in the past 24 hours, you'd know that everybody had something to say about the HBO epic, but we found some celebrity commentary that was a wee-bit outside of the mainstream perspective.

Meanwhile, "Water For Elephants" opened in a strong third place at this weekend's box office, but has garnered mixed reviews. While Hollywood's fickle critics are split, the celebrity consensus is overwhelmingly positive, at least with a sample size of two.

And you know how we told you that a "Bill and Ted 3" script was just weeks away from completion? Turns out that it's already done, and it's in co-star Alex Winter's hands. Station!

Meanwhile, love is in the tweets for "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlene, who was propositioned online by a household name. He plays it cool and responds with the only surefire way to win a girl’s heart: A Star Trek reference.

Five Funny Documentaries About Stand-Up Comedians

Five Funny Documentaries About Stand-Up Comedians
With a new documentary about the life of Bill Hicks opening in New York City this weekend, it seemed like a good time to dig deeper into the world of documentaries about stand-up comedians. And, pending an thorough examination, this is what we found: there aren't a lot of good ones. Obviously there are plenty of concert films of stand-ups, just not a ton of docs about stand-ups, and most of the ones that do exist aren't very good. "American," which is smartly edited and constructed, is a fine exception. Here are five more:

As "The Comedians of Comedy" opens, Patton Oswalt talks about one of the worst gigs of his life: Yuk-a-Buck Night, six comedians, six bucks, one comedy club. Places like that Yuk-a-Buck joint, with their lowest common denominator expectations and two drink minimums, are the reason Oswalt gathered together Brian Posehn,

Accidents abounded today as news of a mishap at the Broadway musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" spread and winter weather caused some mayhem. Tom Felton, for instance, has been having a bad run of driving luck, but it does sound like he's okay.

Yesterday marked a sad anniversary, too, as Rose McGowan noted that it's been one year since Brittany Murphy's death. Her thoughts, as well as a shot of one of our favorite "Twilight" series actresses lending a hand at a Phoenix food bank, have been retweeted after the jump.

TV Or Not TV: 11/29 - 12/5

  • Quick Stop
This week’s column is just all about the listings. With the Thanksgiving holiday I haven’t had a chance to do much in my viewing other than getting all caught up on Fringe. Even though I have some thoughts and theories there isn’t really enough to write up a full article on. Here’s the Cliff Notes:

The alternate universe has been a great story telling mechanism since the middle of last season and it has been a complete and utter mind-bending winner for me this season as well. The stakes are too high that they’ve laid out. Only one of these two universes can survive? This makes me think that weeks from now Peter is going to be stepping into this mystery machine because he’s going to believe doing so will be a valid alternative option.

Cholera In Haiti, 'Skyline' And 'Scream' In Today's Twitter-Wood
Now that a cholera epidemic has reached Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince, and the death toll is climbing toward 1,000, the worsening situation has become a recurring topic of conversation in our Twitter feed. Danny DeVito was searching around for something to do to help yesterday, while Olivia Wilde shared a picture from a Haitian pediatric hospital where she's been hanging out.

In movie-related posts, "Skyline" prompted a few micro-reviews over the weekend. Sasha Grey broke her spectrum of reactions down into a single tweet and may have managed to break a Twitter-Wood record for most sentences in a single post. Check it out after the jump and see if you share her sentiments. Even if you don't, you'll see what Eli Roth received for participating in a "Scream" documentary and what Marlon Wayans recommends for the Minnesota Vikings.
