It’s The Funniest TV Sitcom You Probably Haven’t Seen: ‘Please Like Me’

136Airing tonight on Pivot TV, PLEASE LIKE ME is an Australian import created by and starring an unknown (at least, here in America) comedian by the name of JOSH THOMAS. Based largely on his own experiences, the story is centered on a charmingly quirky young gay man (named ‘Josh’) trying to cope with his parents’ divorce, his father’s remarriage to a much younger woman, the arrival of a newborn stepsister, his mother’s admission to a psychiatric hospital and his own struggling sex life.

As Josh, THOMAS is both witty and wise as well as being delightfully awkward and inappropriate. At the age of 25, he’s already taken the Australian comedy scene by storm as well as winning awards at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Currently in its second season, PLEASE LIKE ME is well worth catching up with and a real feather in Pivot’s cap.

At a recent Television Critics Association press conference to promote the series, THOMAS addressed a question about how working with an American network for the new season might have affected the content of a show set in Australia. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO NSFW)

PLEASE LIKE ME airs Friday nights on Pivot TV.

Pierce Brosnan: ‘I Was Happy To Leave Bond Behind’

135It shouldn’t come as any surprise that Pierce Brosnan is coming back to the action genre with The November Man. After all, this is a man who played Agent 007 in four James Bond movies from 1995 to 2002. Of course, 007 has always been played by a revolving door of actors, and when it was his turn to hand the keys of the Aston Martin over to Daniel Craig, he did it without any regrets.

The November Man opens in theaters tomorrow.

Jennifer Aniston Wants A Little Peace And Privacy, Please

134Before 1994, Jennifer Aniston was just a struggling young actress, hoping that one of her projects would finally draw the public’s interest. Well, you know what they say, right? Be careful what you wish for! Once Friends became an overnight success and launched her into the super-stardom stratosphere, her private life suddenly became public domain, with headlines splashed across every tabloid and celebrity gossip mag you can imagine.

As you can imagine, Aniston has a few words to say about the subject, and she’s adamant that, like Vegas, what happens in her private life should stay private. (Click on the media bar below to hear Jennifer Aniston)

Stephen Colbert: Still To Early To Be Talking ‘Late’

133At 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, Stephen Colbert won two Emmy awards for Outstanding Variety, Music Or Comedy Series and for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series for his nightly talk show, The Colbert Report. After winning the award, Colbert came back to the press room where all the talk was about him taking over the Late Show with David Letterman next year.

When he was asked what to expect after he takes over for Letterman, Colbert said to expect more of the same-but different- and goes on to say that it’s hard to concentrate on taking over The Late Show because he has four months of The Colbert Report still left to do and he loves watching David Letterman.

Orlando Bloom Faces The End of Middle Earth

132After starring in both the Lord of the Rings trilogy and now Hobbit trilogy, Orlando Bloom is facing the end of the series with mixed emotions. With the premiere of the finale, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, just a few months away, he’s happy to have had the experience, but sad to know he’ll never visit the mythical land of Middle Earth again.

But as torn as Bloom is about it, he knows it will be even more difficult for Peter Jackson, who wrote, produced, and directed all six of the movies. In other words, Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit has been the primary focus of Jackson’s life for more than a decade. Bloom tells us that dedication on Jackson’s part is what made the movies so great, and why it will be so difficult to say goodbye. (Click on the media bar below to hear Orlando Bloom)

The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies opens in theaters on December 17.
