Saxondale: Is this NBC's Next Office-like Hit Import?

Saxondale's Steve Coogan

In July, British funnyman Steve Coogan signed a deal to have his Baby Cow production company create shows for NBC. One being planned is a remake of his recent BBC2 hit, Saxondale. Following a brash roadie-turned-exterminator, the series debuts stateside tonight on BBC America (11 pm/ET). The project was a welcome change for Coogan, who is best known for playing Alan Partridge in the shows Knowing Me, Knowing You and I'm Alan Partridge. TVGuide.com spoke with the Manchester native about his new creation and about the upcoming film Marie Antoinette, in which he plays Ambassadeur Mercy. TVGuide.com: You had a lot of success with Alan Partridge. Why was it important to play a very different character in Saxondale?Steve Coogan: Well, I wanted it to be di read more

Terry Gilliam's Tideland Has Folks Talking... and Walking

Tideland , writer-director Terry Gilliam

Time Bandits. Brazil. The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. As a writer and director, Terry Gilliam has created some of the most memorably surreal movies of the last 25 years. As a performer and animator, he was the only American member of Monty Python. And yet the sexagenarian ex-pat insists that these days he has about as much luck getting films made as Orson Welles did late in his career. While 1995's Twelve Monkeys (which Gilliam helmed but didn't pen) was a modest hit, his next picture, 1998's Fear and Lo read more

Friday the 13th's Jason Speaks Up!

Kane Hodder as Jason Voorhees

Call me a twisted freak or a serial slayer waiting to happen, but this Insider editor loves him some Jason Voorhees. Ever since the boy who refused to drown "popped up" in the original Friday the 13th, I've been in the theater (or at the video-store checkout counter) for almost every sequel. That's why, on this day of celebrating ghouls and goblins, I sought out Kane Hodder, the man who has played Jason more than anyone else (in parts VII, VIII, Jason Goes to Hell and Jason X), to shed light on the man behind the hockey mask. read more

When I was younger, I saw a ...

Question: When I was younger, I saw a horror movie about a girl held captive by her parents. They also had other people locked in their basement and the captives became mutated. At the end a bomb goes off and all this money flies out into the streets, where the neighbors run around collecting it. I can't seem to remember the title.


Answer: It's horror veteran Wes Craven's The People Under the Stairs (1991), in which Everett McGill and Wendy Robie play insane, incestuous siblings who keep a bunch of kidnapped children in their home. They've always wanted a "brother" for their "daughter," but none of the boys they kidnap are docile enough to play the part; they read more
