It’s the end of March, which in TV Land means it’s time to start planning for the season finales that will air in May. We wanted to pass along a pair of notable finale castings over at Fox. First, TV Line reports that Olivia Wilde will return for the House series finale. Wilde left the cast last season to capitalize on her budding movie career. But since she played Thirteen for 80 episodes on the medical drama, so social courtesy dictates she returns for the very last episode. Even amid the lulls, House has always been great with “event” episodes, so I am excited to see how the writers sign off after 8 seasons (presumably with a bang). As a fan of Wilde and the character, I’m glad she will be involved. Creator David Shore and longtime House writers are currently working on the swan song, which will air on May 21.

Part of me feels like I’m one of the few people looking forward to another Harold & Kumar movie, but I don’t care. The Harold & Kumar movies are delightfully madcap, feature a nice mix of gross-out humor and absurdity, and it looks like they’ve gone all out with A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas. Director Todd Strauss-Schulson seems to have acknowledged that 3D is a mostly-gimmicky technology and used it to augment the shenanigans of his lead characters.
New Line has released twenty-five new images along with four new set photos and I continue to remain jazzed to see the movie. Hit the jump to check out the images. A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas opens November 4th.

When this film came out I had no desire to see it. I thought it looked like a repeat of “Big” mixed with “It’s a Wonderful Life,” only lame and for tweeny boppers. I will be the first to admit I was wrong, this movie is a cocktail of both those films, but keeps things fresh and has a hell of a lot of laugh out loud moments. I typically shy away from the more “family friendly” films that come out because they have a tendency to talk down to the audience or over-sentimentalize things, but in my opinion “17 Again” is a comedy first, family film second. There are enough nerd humor, “adult-themed” jokes, and snappy dialogue to keep even the most avid naysayer smiling throughout. More after the jump:
