Peter Gallagher speaks the following line in the new movie by CW actor Ryan Eggold: “Don’t dick me around, guy. We are on a strict deadline. ‘Nature Calls with Orson Schwartzman’ waits for no man.” Gallagher is playing Orson Schwartzman, the fictional host of that fictional nature show. Now, you don’t have Peter Gallagher show up in your movie for three minutes, give him a name like “Orson Schwartzman,” and have him say the line “[d]on’t dick me around, guy.

For quite some time Justin Long has been the face of the middling romantic comedy genre. The actor has led a string of relatively low-profile films about down on their luck dudes pining for lost loves and manic pixie dream girls (“Going The Distance,” “A Case Of You,” “Comet”). But while Long-fronted pictures haven’t always fared well (“Comet” was at least interesting), he has mostly managed to remain a welcome, if quantifiable presence, thus giving us reason to remain hopeful for his upcoming dramedy “Literally, Right Before Aaron,” which pairs him with the delightful Cobie Smulders.

And while creator/star Forte remained mum about any season 3 story lines (he literally just returned to the writers’ room days ago), the series stars Kristen Schaal, January Jones, Mary Steenburgen and Cleopatra C…

With The Last Man on Earth closing out its second season and renewed for a third, Fox‘s hit comedy is currently top of the network’s game. This past season, the show has evolved through location changes, cast expansion, surprise guest stars and creator Will Forte‘s decision to stand aside as showrunner—a choice Forte says didn’t change his experience all that much. “I thought I would have a chance to have a little bit more of a life doing the second season,” he says, “but…
