‘Kalifornia’ All The Way

In Kalifornia a photographer (Michelle Forbes) and her writer boyfriend (David Duchovny) head cross country in the foot steps of serial killers. They are writing a book, but inadvertently start their own drama when they ignore every mother’s advice and decide to bring along two drifters Early Grayce (Brad Pitt) and his girlfriend Adele (Juliette Lewis). The gruesome foursome leaves a bloody trail all the way to the Pacific. As Tupac said: California, knows how to party.

This got us thinking, what other movies has Brad Pitt gone ugly for? Ha ha ha! Trick question. Brad Pitt is never ugly not even when he is starring as a psychopathic murderer with yellow teeth and hockey hair and has Juliette Lewis attached to him like an extra and extremely whiny arm nor when he is guest starring on Friends. And what about David Duchovny? After making some bad choices as a writer in Kalifornia, you would think he would have thought twice about some of his choices as a writer in Californication. But no, his character is determined to be the poster child of Bad Choices. Well, after Todd Margaret, of course. Juliette Lewis has made much better choices since tagging along on Brad Pitt’s crime spree. This month she stars in laff festDue Date and Oscar-bait Conviction and was excellent in rollerderby movie Whip It. Michelle Forbes is beyond reproach with her roles in Battlestar Galactica and True Blood.

Watch the trailer and tune in tonight:

Kalifornia airs tonight at 8:00 PM ET, Thursday, Nov. 11 at 2:00 AM ET; Saturday, Nov. 20 at 10:15 PM ET; Sunday, Nov. 21 at 4:00 AM ET; Saturday, Nov. 27 at 12:00 AM ET; Wednesday, Dec. 8 at 7:30 PM ET; Thursday, Dec. 9 at 3:15 AM ET

Millennial Wisdom

Charles Speaks For Us All

Get to know Charles, the social media whiz of Brockmire.

Posted by on

He may be an unlikely radio producer Brockmire, but Charles is #1 when it comes to delivering quips that tie a nice little bow on the absurdity of any given situation.

Charles also perfectly captures the jaded outlook of Millennials. Or at least Millennials as mythologized by marketers and news idiots. You know who you are.

Played superbly by Tyrel Jackson Williams, Charles’s quippy nuggets target just about any subject matter, from entry-level jobs in social media (“I plan on getting some experience here, then moving to New York to finally start my life.”) to the ramifications of fictional celebrity hookups (“Drake and Taylor Swift are dating! Albums y’all!”). But where he really nails the whole Millennial POV thing is when he comments on America’s second favorite past-time after type II diabetes: baseball.

Here are a few pearls.

On Baseball’s Lasting Cultural Relevance

“Baseball’s one of those old-timey things you don’t need anymore. Like cursive. Or email.”

On The Dramatic Value Of Double-Headers

“The only thing dumber than playing two boring-ass baseball games in one day is putting a two-hour delay between the boring-ass games.”

On Sartorial Tradition

“Is dressing badly just a thing for baseball, because that would explain his jacket.”

On Baseball, In A Nutshell

“Baseball is a f-cked up sport, and I want you to know it.”

Learn more about Charles in the behind-the-scenes video below.

And if you were born before the late ’80s and want to know what the kids think about Baseball, watch Brockmire Wednesdays at 10P on IFC.

Crown Jules

Amanda Peet FTW on Brockmire

Amanda Peet brings it on Brockmire Wednesday at 10P on IFC.

On Brockmire, Jules is the unexpected yin to Jim Brockmire’s yang. Which is saying a lot, because Brockmire’s yang is way out there. Played by Amanda Peet, Jules is hard-drinking, truth-spewing, baseball-loving…everything Brockmire is, and perhaps what he never expected to encounter in another human.

“We’re the same level of functional alcoholic.”

But Jules takes that commonality and transforms it into something special: a new beginning. A new beginning for failing minor league baseball team “The Frackers”, who suddenly about-face into a winning streak; and a new beginning for Brockmire, whose life gets a jumpstart when Jules lures him back to baseball. As for herself, her unexpected connection with Brockmire gives her own life a surprising and much needed goose.

“You’re a Goddamn Disaster and you’re starting To look good to me.”

This palpable dynamic adds depth and complexity to the narrative and pushes the series far beyond expected comedy. See for yourself in this behind-the-scenes video (and brace yourself for a unforgettable description of Brockmire’s genitals)…

Want more about Amanda Peet? She’s all over the place, and has even penned a recent self-reflective piece in the New York Times.

And of course you can watch the Jim-Jules relationship hysterically unfold in new episodes of Brockmire, every Wednesday at 10PM on IFC.

From baseball to beer, Jim Brockmire calls ’em like he sees ’em.


It’s no wonder at all, then, that Sam Adams would reach out to Brockmire to be their shockingly-honest (and inevitably short-term) new spokesperson. Unscripted and unrestrained, he’ll talk straight about Sam—and we’ll take his word. Check out this new testimonial for proof:
