Bob’s Burgers Writer Will See the Entourage Movie for $10,000

Entourage Trailer

Posted by on

In recent years, online fundraising campaigns have raised millions for decent and noble causes, but perhaps nothing is as altruistic as financially backing a woman who’s about to undergo one of the most traumatic events a person could experience. Of course, we’re speaking of actually going to see the Entourage movie. But that’s exactly what a writer for the stellar animated program Bob’s Burgers is about to do — that is, if donations to a charity meet a target.

Wendy Molyneux Drake has launched a GoFundMe campaign in order to raise $10,000 for CureSearch, an organization devoted to researching and treating children’s cancer. And should the campaign meet its goal, Molyneux Drake will go see what she describes as “the worst movie of the year and possibly our lifetime.” And don’t get her wrong, she absolutely, positively does not want to see Entourage.

“I hope you don’t give any money, honestly, because of how much I hate Entourage. Okay, it’s your decision. Cancer and me not seeing Entourage, or forcing me to see Entourage in a THEATER FULL OF PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY WANT TO SEE ENTOURAGE and money to cure pediatric cancers.”

Nevertheless, as an incentive for backers, Molyneux Drake included Entourage-themed Reward Levels which promise prizes related to the formidable moviegoing experience. Some of them are:

• Turtle Level ($25): A picture of Wendy seeing the movie and a written review of the film
• Ari Silver Level ($500): Actually go see Entourage with Wendy and her husband
• Ultimate Turtle Level ($15,000): A cake to enjoy during the movie, plus a picture of Turtle or an actual turtle signed by Wendy

We commend Wendy for her selfless act of charity and wish her the speediest recovery should donations hit $10,000.

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Hank Azaria Gets Thrown A Curve Ball

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
