Fred Armisen was invited to give the commencement address to the 2011 graduates of Oregon Episcopal High School, and above is a video of the address. As we all know, Armisen enjoyed a great deal of success earlier this year with his IFC series "Portlandia" which poked fun at the Oregonian city, so the location of this address is kind of apt, right?

Jason Sudeikis to appear on Tonight Show with Jay Leno this Monday.

One of the most anticipated comedies of the summer is "Horrible Bosses". Starring Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx, the comedy hits theaters July 8. Collider has posted an interview with Bateman, Day and Sudeikis which can be read here or, alternatively, listened to here. 

Additionally, Steve "Frosty" Weintraub has posted an extensive article detailing his visit to the set of Horrible Bosses, which can be read here.

Bill Hader was in attendance at the Super 8 premiere on Wednesday night and EW caught up with him to ask about the status of "The Hand Job".
The film, written by Hader's wife Maggie Carey, is set to star Aubrey Plaza, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Donald Glover, Andy Samberg, Bill Hader and many more.

Describing the film, Hader said, “It is about a very type-A, valedictorian type of girl who decides she needs to be more sexually experienced before she goes to college. I play her boss. She works at pool and there’s a whole big thing with her and me. Let’s just say I may not have the best intentions.”

Regarding the semi-risque title, Hader stated that the film has been renamed "The To-Do List". "The To-Do List" is currently slated for a 2013 release.
