Get ready for Keaton time on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.' It's been announced that both Michael J. Fox and his 'Family Ties' onscreen father Michael Gross will be guest-starring on the upcoming Season 8. According to TVGuide.com, Fox will play himself in Episode 10, in which 'Curb' uses Fox's real-life battle with Parkinson's Disease as a comedic plot device. "Larry moves to New York and takes the apartment below ours," says Fox. The famously irascible Larry then believes that Fox is "being symptomatic just to annoy him -- a whole passive-aggressive thing. He's complaining because I'm shuffling and making noise upstairs. It's very funny." Read More... http://www.tvsquad.com/2011/05/17/michael-j-fox-and-michael-gross-to-guest-star-on-curb-your-ent/
HBO has released the first real look at the upcoming season of "Curb Your Enthusiasm," premiering July 10, and though it makes little promise of plot, there are more than enough guest stars to compensate. Michael J. Fox, Ricky Gervais, Rosie O'Donnell and Anna Gasteyer are among the actors showing up for the 10-episode run, alongside Larry David and returning co-stars Jeff Garlin, Cheryl Hines, Susie Essman and J.B. Smoove.The two-minute spot is great if you, like us, want to see David exploit Fox's Parkinson's Disease for awkward humor or go at it with Rosie O'Donnell during a softball game (obviously). And it's nice to know that they keep things light behind the scenes of "Curb Your Enthusiasm." We worry that all that uncomfortable tone might be hard to get rid of when the cameras stop rolling.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/04/curb-your-enthusiasm-michael-j-fox-ricky-gervais-show-up-in-season-8-preview.html

Here's what we know about Season 8 of "Curb Your Enthusiasm": It's set and filmed in New York.And that's about it. (OK, we also know that Ricky Gervais will have a cameo, and that at least one subplot will involve a Larry David having a Soup Nazi-esque run-in at a restaurant). As for why David decided to switch coasts for the eighth season, or when that season will air, well, David and HBO aren't saying. The text at the end of the teaser trailer above only says "Coming," not "Coming on X date." But teasers have been built on less, and so we present to you the first look at a terrifyingly large Larry David stalking the streets of the Big Apple.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/01/curb-your-enthusiasm-larry-takes-manhattan-in-season-8.html

Before you freak out and frantically check your calendar, don't worry, you still have time. But not that much! Father's Day, for all you forgetful sons and daughters, is Sunday June 20th this year, and if you've been too busy marathon-ing all your favorite shows on Sidereel to come up with a decent gift idea, we've got some for you! If your daddio loves his favorite shows as much as you do, he may be interested in some TV-themed gear, from tees and caps to mugs and bobbleheads. And of course, there's always the option of a DVD gift set -- especially if it comes in a sweet package. Check out our 8 gift suggestions for the TV addict Dad, complete with links for easy purchasing (procrastination is no longer an excuse): 1. Lost Encyclopedia If your pops is already going through Lost withdrawals since the series finale last month, this "encyclopedia" is the perfect collector's item for a true fanatic. Just make sure he doesn't bring it with him to the bathroom, in case you're hoping to skim through it too at some point! 2. The Office Bobblehead If Dad is a hardcore fan of The Office , make him feel like one of the gang with a Dwight Schrute Bobblehead (or any character, for that matter!) to place on his desk at home or at his own office! 3. The West Wing: The Complete Series Collection The West Wing is a total dad show, right? If your old man was a huge fan of the multi-Emmy-winning show, he'd probably love this complete series DVD set. It's a perfect summer marathon show when he's not too busy barbecuing, playing catch, or whatever it is dads like to do during the summer... 4. Sons of Anarchy T-Shirt Your dad not be much of a rebel nowadays, but now that you're all grown up, I'm sure he still has plenty of stories about all the trouble he used to get into in his "heyday." Help him relive his days as a wild child with a Sons of Anarchy tee. 5. Curb Your Enthusiasm Mug If your dad is the wry Larry David type, he might find humor in this clever eco-mug while he waits for the next season of Curb Your Enthusiasm . Plus, you'll be doing him the extra favor of helping him be more green! 6. Friday Night Lights Panther Cap If your dad prefers Friday Night Lights football over the real-life teams he has lost faith in, help him show off his Panther pride and TV addict nature with a panthers cap! 7. Breaking Bad Soundtrack Breaking Bad is a pretty darn addicting show, so chances are if your dad is hooked, watching the show isn't enough to get his fix. The soundtrack is a must-have for any diehard fan. Plus, it's much more "manly" than the slightly more popular Glee volumes, but that's an option too, if he's into that... 8. iPad Okay, clearly this idea is just for the really generous kids (or maybe if you have like 7 siblings who all want to pitch in), but I couldn't help but include the gift that all dads are dying to get, just in honor of Phil Dunphy from Modern Family ! Plus, what dad wouldn't love to have the chance to watch his shows on the go? Got any other great TV-themed Father's Day gift ideas to share with your fellow Sidereelers? Share below!
Cheers to Jon Hamm for showing his wry side once again. On the debut of TV Guide Network's Curb: The Discussion, the Golden Globe-winning actor best known as the dead-serious Don Draper (or is that Dick Whitman?) on Mad Men gamely analyzed the behavior of Larry David as part of a post-Curb Your Enthusiasm celebrity panel. He revealed he's "not a fan" of breast implants before joking he's got them, and "my nipples are just as sensitive as they were before the implants." This should come as no surprise - the sense of humor, not the sensitive nipples - to anyone who's seen Hamm cut loose on 30 Rock (where his too-good-to-be-true Dr. Drew recently lost his hands in a freak helicopter accident) or guest-hosting SNL (one word: Sergio!). Like Alec Baldwin, Hamm's a goofball blessed with leading-man looks. Larry David would be wise to give him an arc on Curb next season: The guy's a natural-born ham. Source Here
