Louis C.K. Will Write, Direct, Star in I'm a Cop

  Louis C.K. will return to the realm of filmmaking with I'm a Cop , THR reports . C.K. will write, direct, and star in the Scott Rudin-produced indie film he loves wearing a lot of hats, this guy. I'm a Cop will tell the story of a middle-aged, volunteer police officer who becomes a legit police officer after his legendary mother (also a cop, classic) dies. This protagonist will reportedly be pretty depressed and have some parental baggage does it kind of sound like this guy , permanently in character, gets his own movie? Anyway, C.K.'s most recent endeavors in the feature-film world have mainly involved Chris Rock movies, most notably 2001's Pootie Tang , which notoriously didn't go very well for C.K. It's been a while, though, so here's hoping Cop will be as weird as Pootie , but with the same creative freedom and strength as Louie . .  Read More...   http://www.vulture.com/2015/05/louis-ck-will-write-direct-star-in-im-a-cop.html

Louis C.K.: Reactions to 'Louie' rape scene are all valid

It took all of two questions to Louis C.K. at the winter 2015 TV press tour on Sunday (Jan. 18) for someone to ask about the controversial"Louie"episode where his character tries to force himself on his friend/unrequited crush, Pamela (Pamela Adlon).The episode generated a huge amount of discussion over Louie the character's and Louis C.K. the creator's intentions, and whether it tried to laugh off what a questioner called "borderline date rape""I wouldn't call it rape. I kissed the side of her mouth," C.K. replies. "I think you gotta be careful with that word, 'rape,' because it's a real serious and bad thing. It you call a bad bowl of soup 'rape,' that kind of dilutes what it really is."RELATED: 'Louie' Season 5 has a premiere dateC.K. says that for him the scene was "a physical manifestation of what we were doing as a couple, like as two people.

Weekend Binge Guide: January 2015

Have the weekend free? Going out is overrated! Binge-watch one of these shows instead:   If you want to laugh:   Brooklyn Nine-Nine See all reviews for Brooklyn Nine-Nine In catching up with this show the other day, I announced to the world that I thought Brooklyn Nine-Nine  was the legitimate heir to the glory that was  NewsRadio . I'm sorry if you're unfamiliar with  NewsRadio , but basically, it was the best workplace comedy of the '90s (#90skid) and it was filled with wonderful, uniquely hilarious characters.  Brooklyn Nine-Nine  is the same — except with guns!       If you want to cry:   Bunheads See all reviews for Bunheads This quiet tragicomedy lasted only one terrific season, but that's no reason you shouldn't watch it. From the mind behind  Gilmore Girls  (and with some of the same cast),  Bunheads  follows Michelle (Broadway vet Sutton Foster) from Las Vegas to the sleepy California town of Paradise, where she ends up co-directing a dance studio with her mother-in-law after SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER. It sounds insufferable, I know, but it's really just a delightful trifle that has the ability to break your heart once an episode.     If you want to scream:   Fringe See all reviews for  Fringe Take it from an expert: Do not watch  Fringe  while eating. Giant worms erupt from (living) bodies, people disintegrate/explode, and well, it's just gross a lot of the time! But it was also one of the more fully-realized sci-fi serials of the last decade. It's a marriage of monsters, technology, transhumanism, and parallel worlds — and what  doesn't  sound fun about that? Oh, right, the giant worms and exploding bodies. But that's what you're looking for, right?      If you want to think:   Louie See all reviews for  Louie If you think  Louie  is a comedy, you're... half right. It has comedic elements, sure, and it's based on Louis C.K.'s standup, but it's really more of an exploration of humanity, and one that gets exceedingly dark at times. It plays with form, eschewing the hypercontintinuity of most millennial series, and each episode feels more like a miniature film thesis than a standard sitcom. It attacks existentialism, suicide, aging, and insecurity, and it sets the standard for quality in a way that most "serious" shows would kill for.     Leah E. Friedman  is the editor of SideReel.com.
