Why Seth Rogen Is Canada's Complete Comedic Actor

BY: GURU JAY


Comedy offers possibilities. Seth Rogen should play a role in Mission Impossible. He could spend some extra time in the gym with Tom Cruise's personal training help.

Canada's complete comedic actor puts the “Can” in Canada. You thought I was going to say trash or recycle bin maybe, didn't you? My advice is to light up your cigars because this thing called life is hard sometimes.

You see comedians light up the world in dark times. We need more laughter and less tears. That's why I'm blogging about comedy today.

Seth Rogen is one of my favorite comedians. You could argue that he is one of the best in showbiz. He just does a good job imitating Drake- that's all.

I'll never forget his joke about Facebook in Funny People. He gave Jonah Hill a comedy lesson. Plus, Adam Sandler got a few pointers (or should I say Pokes) from Seth.

I highly recommend watching Pineapple Express. Who else can't wait to see Seth and James Franco star in Pineapple Express 2? For one, Rogen and Franco go together like beans and cornbread. Who remembers Green Latern? Have you seen the controversial Interview movie?

I like Seth Rogen because he regulates the comedy world. Seth understands how to Dougie. He can teach you how to do it too.

While I'm on the topic of dancing, check out his Lip Sync Battle with Jimmy Fallon? It's on YouTube right now. You'll also enjoy his appearance on the Ellen Show.

In many ways, his comedy comes on you unexpectedly. He never forces his material. The laid back celebrity keeps a low profile and does what is needed.

Are you waiting for Neighbors 2 DVD to hit store shelves? Was Sausage Party funny? I feel Seth Rogen hasn't maximized his true potential yet. Could you imagine a Seth Rogen and Zach Galifianakiscollaboration? They could make a rap song to satisfy fans. With 4.5 million Twitter followers, that's a whole lot of potential greatness.

Emmys 2016 Recap: Red Carpet and Winners

Emmys 2016 Recap: Red Carpet and Winners


Could you feel the good vibrations on the red carpet last night?

Hopefully, you got a chance to watch the Emmy Awards. In this blog, we will experience it again. In case you missed it, you'll also appreciate my recap.

To begin with, the interviews set the tone for the night. There was a little something for everybody. Are you much into fashion and style? Did you enjoy seeing the actresses and actors strutting their stuffs?

We saw John Travolta and Amy Schumerarrive on the scene. Naturally, Amy said something inappropriate. And Travolta was cool like he's been- for the past 40 years.

The Emmys literally started up their engines as host Jimmy Kimmel hitchhiked with TV and showbiz's biggest stars. To start it off, he got a little Carpool Karaoke for us from James Corden. Of course, Jimmy was kicked out of the car because of his bad singing. Other celebrities including Julia Louis-Dreyfus kicked him to the curb.

Entertainment award shows are the highlight of an entertaining season. After all that hard work, talent is rightly rewarded by the Television Academy. There were tons of winners Sunday- too many to name everyone.

Jeffrey Tambor was the talk of the Tinseltown because of his performance in Transparent. It seems Transparent owned the night. In fact, Jimmy Kimmel handed Tambor an Emmy when the show first started.

Tori Kelly sang a beautiful Hallelujah honoring the memories of those we lost this year ending with Prince. Louie Anderson won the first award. Were fans pleased to see Mr. Robot take home an Emmy or what? Plus, Game of Thrones and Veep were recognized with multiple wins.

Moreover, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story won big. Courtney B. Vance and Sterling K. Brown took home Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, respectively. You also saw Key & Peele receive their respects they paid dearly for on the comedic side. It's all about sacrifice.

To be honest, the Emmys were dull but enjoyable with coffee. I don't fault the nominees because the TV shows themselves are incredible. I suggest more music and/or better clips next time. Otherwise, Everything was all good.

Don Cheadle: From Hotel Rwanda to House of Lies

BY: GURU JAY


From Hotel Rwanda to House of Lies, Don Cheadle has come a long way. Great actors come along in not so great times. And Don defines greatness.

You see Cheadle can play anyone, and he does it all too well. Moreover, he is instantly recognizable whether at the Waldorf Astoria or up in Harlem at the Cotton Club. Everybody likes Don Cheadle.

He readjusts his mirrors when the time is right. Plus, there is never a dull moment with the movie star in the driver's seat. I'm also interested in seeing Don Cheadle take his director's chair to the next level.

The chemistry between Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell is amazing. Maybe, I'll write a blog about Bell pretty soon. Didn't he bring the best out of her? Cheadle brings out the best in people because he is the best. That's why actors enjoy working with him. They strive for greatness together.

You see he has fans all over the world. Cheadle's starred in blockbusters and critically acclaimed films alike. It is incredible watching him perform with Robert Downey Jr in Iron Man and Captain America. What is more, he easily plays good cop/ bad cop. The Brooklyn's Finest actor has finely tuned his instrument. Who can deny Don Cheadle's talented abilities?

I feel Don Cheadle is elite because of his dedication. How else do you explain why House of Lies ran 5 successful seasons on Showtime? Without commitment at the top, nothing really happens.

Here's the truth about House of Lies. The show could have gone on forever. Cheadle's that much of an asset to any cast. Whatever the situation you put him in, he continually rises to the occasion.

Does he disappoint sometimes? Sure. I think Traitor was a blunder on his part. Still, you can't succeed without learning from failure.

Ellen DeGeneres Should Make Oprah Money

BY: GURU JAY

Ellen DeGeneres Should Make Oprah Money


The generous Ellen DeGeneres generates electricity on the Ellen show. When the lights are out, the first thing you do is call the electric company. How about giving Ellen a call the next time this happens. I can't make any promises but I'm sure she'll at least make you smile.

For 14 years Ellen has been doing exactly that and eating the cake. Everyday on the Ellen Show is like your birthday. You never know what's up her sleeves. The celebrity is full of surprises.

Soon, she'll be giving away cars to everybody like Oprah did. Like orange is the new black, Ellen is the new Oprah. You watch.

Wouldn't it be great if she starred on the Netflix hit OITNB? At a minimum, she could make a cameo or maybe voiceover even. Who's waiting?


Her creativity assists in an entertaining experience. Speaking of experience, who else in showbiz (but Oprah) can match her clout?

Another thing- what if she did Carpool Karaoke with James Corden? That's why I love celebrities and entertainment so much. There's a whole lot we can do. Let your imagination run wild and I'll take you there.

Do you like the Ellen show? I'll say it again! Ellen DeGeneres is a standup gal. You like to watch her because she's amazing at monologues and interviews.


Last week was premiere week on Ellen. I got a chance to watch the full Friday show live. In case you missed it, Tom Hanks made a grand entrance. What is more, DeGeneres donated her largest gift in history to her home state of Louisiana. As you may know, Louisiana got hit hard by flooding recently.


Ellen couldn't stand by and watch this devastation. This is why Britney Spears (who took the famous Ed O'Neill Selfie) joined the team. Right now, it is incredible that the talk show host is backing up her words with action.
