Returning to 'Jedi': Ewok down memory lane with Kevin Smith, Seth Green, Chris Hardwick, Eli Roth -- VIDEO

EW approached filmmaker Kyle Newman (Fanboys) with a simple proposition: Will you make us a short film that collects famous voices talking about Star Wars VI: Return of the Jedi and their feelings about the film as it reaches its 30th anniversary?

After sweet-talking him with promises of no money and too-little time, we mentioned that he was our only hope and, weirdly, that worked. The result is  The Return of Return of the Jedi: 30 Years and Counting, which shows elite geeks — among them Kevin Smith, Seth Green, Chris Hardwick, Jaime King, Topher Grace, Fall Out Boy, Eli Roth, and Jason Mewes — revisiting the movie in which tribal Teddy Ruxpins put down an Imperial invasion force with rocks, logs, and other Gilligan’s Island-esque props. Who saw that coming?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer alums Seth Green and Michelle Trachtenberg never shared the screen on the WB cult hit (Green departed the show before Trachtenberg’s first appearance), but nearly 10 years after the show’s finale, we now get to see them together.

The upcoming movie Sexy Evil Genius stars both Green and Trachtenberg, and a clip from the dark comedy starring the pair hit the web today.

Sexy Evil Genius boasts a geektastic cast where the worlds of Buffy, Lost, and Battlestar Galactica combine. Katee Sackhoff and Harold Perrineau also star, along with everyone’s favorite ’80s nerd, Anthony Michael Hall. The movie is about a group of guys lured to a downtown Los Angeles bar by the ex-girlfriend (Sackhoff) they all have in common.

In the new clip from the film, Trachtenberg’s and Green’s characters duck into a bathroom to frantically discuss a recent turn of events related to said ex-girlfriend. There’s plenty of adorable bumbling from Green and plenty of deadpanning from Trachtenberg. And there’s another fun surprise at the end of the clip — if there are any Dawn/Oz shippers out there who believed these two could have had some chemistry if they were only given the chance, watch the video below: READ FULL STORY

'Robot Chicken' star Seth Green shares his five favorite movie comedies

Seth Green has an unimpeachable comedy résumé. From his clueless aspiring rapper in 1998’s Can’t Hardly Wait to the hilariously myopic characters he voices on Robot Chicken and Family Guy, Green mines belly laughs from Millennial solipsism better than anyone else. Not to mention that he kicked off his career with one of the all-time great performances by a kid actor: as a 12-year-old avatar for Woody Allen in 1987’s Radio Days.

This past Sunday, Robot Chicken, which Green created with Matthew Senreich, came roaring squawking back after a seven month hiatus, with skits that imagined Footloose’s Ren McCormack (voiced by Kevin Bacon himself) teaching the Peanuts kids how to dance, and what would happen if Green Lantern were deprived of hands and forced to wear his ring on another appendage (guess which one!). “Our goal is not to hurt people’s feelings,” Green says. “Our goal is to have fun with how silly we all are. I’m just delighted by human folly.”

That deft balance between outrageous surrealism and laugh-with-you humanism can be tough to pull off, so what does Green turn to for inspiration when he’s stuck? In honor of EW’s 2011 Comedy Issue, he’s ready to share. Here are his five all-time favorite movie comedies: READ FULL STORY
