News Briefs: Chuck, Ugly Betty, and 30 Rock's foray into porn

  • 7comments

... So obviously, someone made an adult film parody of 30 Rock, called 30 Rock: A XXX Parody. Less obviously, 30 Rock is now going to parody the parody of itself. Awesomely, a person named Wicked Sister, (really), (well not really really but that's what the person has chosen to go by as he or she builds a career), who was production manager on the 30 Rock porn version, says that Tina Fey called asking for audition tapes of the porn actors, in order to possibly cast them on the real 30 Rock's meta-porn. "I'm wondering if it's going to be a knock-off of ours," is something that the person named Wicked Sister, who was involved in making the knock-off pornographic version of 30 Rock, said, without guile, about the actual 30 Rock. This is the best story ever. [Movieline]

... Comedy Central will be bringing back the American Comedy Awards starting next year. The awards "will be decided by a group of board members featuring the industry talent and executives" and then interrupted by Kanye West. [The Live Feed]

... Penn and Teller are getting an ABC show loosely based on their lives, except they will also solve crimes. We are pretty sure this is not a joke. Teller doesn't even talk. How will that work? Penn will say something like, "It's Elementary, my dear Teller," and instead of saying "I've hated you for years," Teller will just stand there and juggle? [Variety]

... Vinnie Jones will guest star on Chuck as "an expert hit man with a soft side." Vinnie Jones plays an expert hit man with a soft side so much that we're beginning to think he actually is an expert hit man with a soft side. [THR]

... Because it's Friday, and there is no more news, here is a clip from the season premiere of Ugly Betty. Enjoy your weekend! [Ausiello]
