It was all the way back in the before times (aka 2019) when it was announced that Judd Apatow was teaming up with Billy Eichner to make a romantic comedy starring and written by Eichner.

Adam Sandler's 14 Best Roles Ranked

Adam Sandler has had a fascinating career. Beginning with his star-making role as a cast member on "Saturday Night Live," Sandler's early time in the spotlight was defined by baby talk, sing-songy jokes, and goofy yelling. Early on, Sandler primarily played overgrown and over-privileged man babies with hair-trigger tempers. Many of those performances are very, very funny, but they don't come with a particularly large amount of depth.However, as Sandler has grown as an actor (particularly after l...

‘Freaks and Geeks’ Season 2 Could’ve Happened at MTV, But We Live in the Darkest Timeline

Freaks and Geeks is one of the most beloved, and unfortunately, short-lived shows of all time. Created by Paul Feig and executive produced by Judd Apatow, the series was simply ahead of its time, championing the single-camera comedy approach when network television hadn’t yet let go of the confines of multi-camera sitcoms with live audiences. Despite a critically acclaimed first season, Freaks and Geeks was canceled. But it could have lived on at MTV. So why didn’t that happen? Collider recen...

‘I Slept with Joey Ramone’ Casts Pete Davidson as The Ramones Lead Singer

As a stand-up act, he has undeniable chops, but as a performer, Davidson still has some work to do outside of playing anyone other than a slightly different version of himself. Now Netflix will give him a chance to do just that by having him play The Ramones frontman Joey Ramone in a new movie. Net...
