This #MovieStarMonday we visit with Kevin Heffernan & Steve Lemme (Super Troopers, Tacoma FD, Beerfest)
They made global news during Super Troopers 2 when they crowdfunded 4.6 million dollars from fans to help get the film made with Fox Searchlight. Since, two of the Broken Lizards, Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme, created the hit TruTV scripted comedy Tacoma FD now into season 4, and Jay Chandrasekhar has directed many well know comedic TV and film projects, most recently Universal’s Easter Sunday with Jo Koy and Tiffany Haddish.
Their new film, Quasi, available now on Hulu.com, is the story of a hapless hunchback yearns for love but finds himself in the middle of a murderous feud between the Pope and the king of France when each orders the hunchback to kill the other. One unique (and funny) part is that each of the Broken Lizards play two different characters.

worms get the munchies from marijuana. Cannabis has a reputation for
causing users to crave tasty, high-calorie foods. And now,
researchers at the University of Oregon have determined that worms
experience cravings, or “munchies,” when they encounter the same
chemical compounds in marijuana. The report, published in the journal
Current Biology, says, in part, “Upon cannabinoid exposure, (the
worm) becomes more sensitive to favored food odors and less sensitive
to non-favored food odors. This helps explain changes in the worm’s
consumption of food, and it is reminiscent of how THC makes tasty
food even tastier in humans.”

After 3 decades, Nintendo has decided to change the controversial name of one of the villains from “Super Mario Bros” ahead of the movie’s official release in Japan this week. The Japanese video game giant made the announcement in a tweet. A translation says the foreman character ‘Blackie’, who appeared in the 1980s computer game “Wrecking Crew,” will have his name changed to ‘Spike’ in Japanese. That’ll take place in both the games and the “The Super Mario Bros. Movie.” which remains at the top of the box office for the third week running. While Nintendo didn’t provide a reason for the decision, the character’s former title is considered a racial slur in Western countries.
Harrison Ford says the upcoming “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” will mark his final outing as the globetrotting archeologist, which means fans shouldn’t expect to see him in the “Indiana Jones” TV series that’s currently in development at Disney+. Ford said to Total Film: “This is the final film in the series, and this is the last time I’ll play the character.” He also indicated he believes it’ll be the last time the character ever appears in a film. (We’re pretty sure he said the same thing in 1984…and ’89…and 2008…)
The 96th Oscars will be held on Sunday, March 10, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and ABC have announced. This marks the third year the Academy Awards ceremony will be held in March after seeing steady viewership bumps the past 2 years. The Academy set the submission deadline for general categories for Nov. 18. The nominations voting period will run from Jan. 11-16, 2024, with the official nominations announcement on Jan. 23.
ABC has been making a lot of renewals, including the drama “Will Trent”, medical drama “The Good Doctor”, and most recently, “Station 19”, but its only new fall series, “Alaska Daily”, may be headed to cancellation. The Hilary Swank-led series hasn’t done well ratings-wise, nor has it made a lot of noise, and Deadline says it’s very likely the network won’t go through with a second season. In the show, Swank stars as a New York journalist seeking a fresh start in Anchorage, Alaska. The series has averaged about 3 million viewers in its first season.

Kim Kardashian says she would never use ‘Privilege’ to get her kids into college.
A so-called “name expert” who helps parents pick their children’s names says upcoming trends include gender-neutral monikers and using last names for first names. Colleen Slagen, who started offering parents consultations on names following a lifelong “obsession” with baby names, now receives up to 5 requests a day for naming assistance, and charges $175-250 for her expertise. She feels that name trends in the US for 2023 will include surnames such as Sutton, Miller and Brooke. Some go-to tips for people searching for a perfect name include:

A Dutch court has banned a man from donating any more of his sperm after he fathered at least 550 children in the Netherlands and other countries — and misled prospective parents about the number of offspring he helped to conceive. The donor, identified as ‘Jonathan M.’, provided sperm to several Dutch fertility clinics and to a clinic in Denmark as well as to many others he connected with through ads and online forums. The court noted that under Dutch guidelines, sperm donors are allowed to produce a maximum of 25 children with 12 mothers.
