Originally, David Wain was merely supposed to lay down some quick sample dialogue for a demo pilot an animator friend was working on. "I thought I was just doing a favor," Wain recalls. Four seasons later, though, he's still voicing The Warden on Adult Swim's classically weird animated series Superjail!, about a prison in another dimension where the line between inmate and officer — and reality and fantasy — gets a little blurry sometimes. Season 4 premieres Sunday, June 15 at 11:45/10:45c on Cartoon Network, so Wain took time out from breaking the next season of Adult Swim's live-action Childrens Hospital, where he's an executive producer and sometime actor (he's played himself and a character called "Rabbi Jewey McJewJew"), to talk Superjail! and the myriad other projects he's involved in. (Stay tuned for an exclusive clip of the mercurial Warden in action below the interview.)
Wet Hot American Summer
Fondle your sweaters and hump the fridge! Netflix is in talks to resurrect Wet Hot American Summer as a TV series, Variety reports.
If the 10-episode prequel series does move forward, the plan is to reunite most of the original cast, who would continue to play high schoolers despite the fact most of them are now in their 40s. Since much of the cast is currently busy with other projects, the plan would be to take a cue from Arrested Development's fourth season and not include every character in every episode. This would allow the actors to film their scenes in only a matter of days.
The 2001 cult classic, from David Wain and Michael Showalter, has long been rumored to return with a sequel or prequel film, but never a series. A few years ago, Wain revealed that he had been working on a script for a follow-up movie.
Christopher Meloni has landed a role in the romantic comedy spoof They Came Together, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Law & Order: SVU alum will reunite with Wet Hot American Summer cast members Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler, as well as director David Wain.
Christopher Meloni has traded in his badge and gun for a set of fangs and one scary-looking stake.
The Law & Order: SVU alum makes his True Blood debut Sunday as the stoic, yet vicious Vampire Authority guardian Roman. The Authority already has its hands full with the threat of a civil war, so the betrayal of one of their own — Nora (Lucy Griffiths) had unsuccessfully tried to help Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) escape the council's clutches — will not make Roman a pleasant vampire to be around. Still, there may be a way for Eric and Bill to survive... but what Roman wants from them in return won't be easy.
