**1/2 (out of four) Tracy Morgan's such a ridiculous caricature of a human being on “30 Rock” and in interviews that it's always great to see him actually acting. And acting like a semi-normal person. He was serious in last year's forgettable drama “Son of No One” and impresses again in the better “Why Stop Now,” which co-stars the comedian as a drug dealer named Sprinkles. Don't laugh; the character means business, even though he's a sad man who lives with his mother and still laments wasting his potential as a runner.

Tracy Morgan has earned a reputation as a wild card in his performances. But there's also a serious side to him, one that often comes out in interviews. This was not one of those interviews. The serious questions we prepared for him quickly became irrelevant. He spent most of the interview half-yelling, straddling the line of is-he-serious-or-not as only he can. You can laugh (or not) when he plays the Improv this weekend. How's it going Tracy? I'm good, how are you?

Zachary Levi tweeted about it Sunday, but now we have proof. He and Betty White did make out at her star-studded 90th birthday party. "Soooooo, I may have just made out with Betty White. This is not a joke. #bucketlist," Levi tweeted. In the first clip above, you see the "Chuck"star, complete with faux hawk, doing his comic bit for White during "Betty White's 90th Birthday: A Tribute to America's Golden Girl," which will air on NBC at 7 p.m. Jan. 16. He tells her he wants to marry her, shows her a ring and a prenup, and says he needs...

Comedians getting into trouble for things they say onstage is nothing new. These comedians have found themselves in hot water for their controversial material. Lenny Bruce With undercover cops in the audience, Bruce was arrested in 1964 in New York City for using obscenities during a show. The trial lasted six months, and Bruce was found guilty and sentenced to four months in a workhouse. George Carlin In 1972, Carlin was arrested for performing his "Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television" routine at Summerstage in Milwaukee.

Think the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, is all about snooty celebs sipping wine in hot tubs at snooty ski resorts while screening snooty art flicks? Well, it's a little bit about that. But Sundance also is the fest that premiered buzz-worthy 2011 movies such as "Another Earth," "Like Crazy," "Martha Marcy May Marlene" and Chicago's own "The Interrupters. " We've got five reasons to keep an eye on this year's fest, which runs through Sunday. firstname.lastname@example.org | @redeyedana 1 -- Everybody who's anybody is there Seriously, it's like winter break for...
