Toronto’s beloved Will Arnett is back in new Netflix series MURDERVILLE! The Series will feature appearances by Annie Murphy, Ken Jeong, Conan O’Brien, Kumail Nanjiani and more!
Meet Senior Detective Terry Seattle (Will Arnett), Homicide Division. For Terry, every day means a new murder case and a new celebrity guest star as his partner. But here’s the catch: each episode’s guest star isn’t being given the script. They have no idea what’s about to happen to them. Together, the guest star and Terry Seattle will have to improvise their way through the case… but it will be up to each celebrity guest alone to name the killer. Join them as they punch a one-way ticket to Murderville. The six-episode procedural crime comedy premieres globally on Netflix on February 3. Based off the BAFTA award winning BBC3 series Murder in Successville by Tiger Aspect Productions and Shiny Button Productions.

This is all sorts of yasss! The new Trailer for SHOW DOGS which before today we didn’t realize we needed! 🐶🐕🐩
Starring Will Arnett, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Natasha Lyonne, Jordin Sparks, Gabriel Iglesias, Shaquille O’Neal, Alan Cumming, and StanleyTucci, SHOW DOGS is a family comedy about the unlikely pairing of a human detective (Arnett) and his canine partner (voice of Chris “Ludacris” Bridges), who has to go undercover at the world’s most exclusive dog show to solve his biggest case yet.
The third Laughter is the Best Medicine Gala, presented by BMO, was held last night at the Canadian National Exhibition‘s Automotive Building, the previous bash held September 2014. Sure to be a star-studded affair with blockbuster names like Jerry Seinfeld (2012) and Chris Rock (2014) having graced the stage in previous years, comedic icons Jim Gaffigan and Kevin Nealon (Saturday Night Live) headlined this edition of the black-tie affair.
Over 1,200 guests, who dined on culinary delights by restaurant mogul Susur Lee, filled the venue with proceeds of the Gala supporting the Michael Garron Hospital, known formerly as the Toronto East General Hospital. The Hospital received an historic gift of $50 million by Berna and Myron Garron in honour of their late son Michael.
In addition to the headliners in attendance, the likes of Ben & Jessica Mulroney, Sylvia & Robert Mantella, Connie & Bill Stavro, Gala Co-Chair and Invictus Games CEO Michael Burns, plus Mayor John Tory graced the red carpet.
Will Arnett hails from Toronto and still is at the top of his game with a leading role in this year’s Box Office smash The Lego Batman Movie and was named the Hospital’s first ever Honourary Doctor. Once again he filled hosting duties as Master of Ceremonies at the Gala. His father Jim, who also attended on a timely note with his mother Alix this Mother’s Day weekend, served on the Board for the Toronto East General Hospital between 2002 to 2009, serving as Chairman between 2006 to 2008.
Our Justin Waldman had the pleasure of chatting with Arnett on the Carpet and tells us about how he came to be involved with the affair. “Five years ago, they asked me to be a part of it. My dad worked with them so I was familiar with the hospital and they do such great things.”. “It started kinda small and has managed to expand over the years into the Michael Garron Hospital.”. “I’m really excited to be a part of this.”.
Among the super-rare items and experiences up for auction were a chance to have an intimate dinner with Arnett himself, the lucky bidders topping all with a $25k winning bid. Trips to anywhere on the Air Canada network with luxurious accommodations in the south of France also were up for grabs, a top bid rising eventually to $30k.

Toronto’s own Michael Cera is back in town. While on a break filming Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin‘s directorial debut Molly’s Game, alongside the likes of Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba and Kevin Costner, he made time today to promote his work in upcoming Animated Feature THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE. The Blockbuster has him voicing the titular character’s sidekick Robin.
The 28-year-old known best for his acclaimed work on Series Arrested Development and Films like Superbad, Juno, This is the End, Sausage Party and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, did the rounds in the City pretaping several interviews in advance of the Film’s release next week.
See a Trailer below:
While we’ve met Cera a few times before, we never got the Selfie until today. He was more than nice to stop in the cold and check-in to see how I was doing.
Celebrating the completion of an ambitious $60 million capital campaign towards the $360 million redevelopment of Toronto East General Hospital, the Laughter is the Best Medicine II Gala took place this evening at Allstream Centre. With soon-to-be-completed Ken and Marilyn Thomson Patient Care Centre being a primary point of focus, Stars came out to show their support for the fantastic Cause. Spotted were the likes of Comedian Gerry Dee and the Toronto Maple Leafs’ Jonas Siegel, Joffrey Lupul and more.
Emceeing the Black Tie Affair a second year, Toronto Funnyman Will Arnett continues to show his commitment to the Cause, while the likes of Comedian Mario Joyner, Cancer-surviving Singer Joseph Neale and Headliner Chris Rock took to the stage. The Party moved over to Muzik Nightclub after midnight.
Arriving shortly after 9:00 PM, Rock graced an intimate Red Carpet before entertaining the Crowd, certainly not holding back with several of his bold yet daringly-funny political observations. Any Fan of Chris Rock would certainly have known exactly what to expect and he delivered the laughs.
Tonight’s visit actually was the Emmy and Grammy Award Winner’s second visit to the City this month. He received tons of acclaim for his latest Film Top Five at TIFF ’14 a couple weeks back, the Comedy sparking a bidding war before ultimately Paramount Pictures secured distribution rights in North America.
Guests tonight had the opportunity to bid on a multitude of elaborate auction items, one including a Will Arnett-signed Rob Ford Bobblehead fetching $9k. Other auctions included a trip for two to Paris with a cooking course at prestigious Le Cordon Bleu.

The LEGO® Movie, the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO® adventure, directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller is an original 3D computer animated story that follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO® minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
Chris Pratt (Moneyball) stars as the voice of Emmet. Will Ferrell (The Campaign) stars as the voice of his primary adversary, President Business, an erudite, anal-retentive CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life; while Liam Neeson (Taken) voices the president’s powerful henchman, known as Bad Cop, who will stop at nothing to catch Emmet.
Starring as Emmet’s fellow travelers are Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby), as Vitruvius, an old mystic; Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Emmy nominee for 30 Rock), as tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest; Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, 30 Rock), as the mysterious Batman, a LEGO® minifigure with whom Lucy shares a history; Nick Offerman (NBC‘s Parks and Recreation) as a craggy, swaggering pirate, obsessed with revenge on President Business; and Alison Brie (Community) as a sweet, loveable member of the team, with a powerful secret.
