We've got another round of comedy legends tonight, as Icons @ 8 Presents: The Comedians, starting at 8ET/5PT. Tom Hanks and Jackie Gleason are a father and son at odds with each other in Nothing in Common (1986). This Garry Marshall directed hit has plenty of lighter moments amid the realities of a strained relationship. It's also the final film appearance for Gleason, who struggled with his health during the filming of Nothing in Common, and passed away in 1987. Then, in The Freshman (1990) Marlon Brando shows off his comedic touch, including a terrific sendup of, well, *himself* in his legendary Don Corleone guise. With Matthew Broderick as a film student who finds himself thrust into an underground world of rare animals and fine dining. It's a special night of comedy and more on Movies!, so make sure to join us.
