It’s a cliché, but timing is everything. Just ask Pierce Brosnan. In 1986, after a successful run on the detective series Remington Steele, he was set to take on the most prestigious of film roles as James Bond. Sadly or fortunately (depending on your take), producers...

There have been many banner days in the history of American Comedy but maybe none more overlooked than December 17, 2005. The debut of “Lazy Sunday” on Saturday Night Live brought about two lasting effects. First, SNL garnered a whole new legion of fans aching to watch...
