If you’re a fan of NBC sitcoms, then you’ll definitely want to watch the promo for Nick Offerman’s movie Somebody Up There Likes Me, which features Community‘s Alison Brie, Parks & Recreation‘s Adam Scott and Amy Poehler, and Offerman’s Parks & Rec ex-wife/real-world still-wife Megan Mullally. And they’re all doing terrible, weird, wild things. What things you ask? Let’s just say it involves a folksy ode to marijuana, lady parts, and maybe John Cassavetes. Why not? Also, they turn Nick Offerman into a bong. Watch the video below (then take a shower). READ FULL STORY »
Tag: Amy Poehler (1-8 of 8)
For fans of Parks and Recreation, Amy Poehler and Adam Scott are television’s most adorable couple. But in A.C.O.D., the Sundance movie about an Adult Child of Divorce (Scott) who’s never really recovered from the trauma of his parents’ split, their relationship could not be chillier. Poehler plays Scott’s pushy step-mother — and the landlord of his restaurant — and she’s not afraid to throw her influence around. (Imagine if Leslie Knope had grown up in Eagleton and you get the idea.)
The film, which premiered last night, reunites Scott with his Step Brothers father, Richard Jenkins, and his Party Down pal, Jane Lynch, and also features Catherine O’Hara, The Office‘s Clark Duke, and 30 Rock‘s Ken Howard, among others.
In person, Poehler and Scott are much more like their Parks and Recreation characters, funny and friendly, offering a glass of red wine to a reporter (that may have been left behind by another journalist.) Before a Princess Bride style Battle of Wits could be staged over the dubious drink in question, the two actors were kind enough to discuss their new movie and Parks and Rec.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Adam, you’re an executive producer on A.C.O.D. I’ve met a lot of producers, but for the life of me, I never really know exactly what they do because when I ask them, I get 100 different answers. So what did the executive producer do on this movie?
ADAM SCOTT: He got Amy Poehler to do the movie. READ FULL STORY »
George Clooney and Meryl Streep will be among the presenters at Sunday night’s 70th annual Golden Globe Awards.
In addition, the presenters include: Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion, Jason Statham, Jennifer Lopez, Kristen Wiig, Jeremy Renner, Amanda Seyfried and Will Ferrell. Smash‘s Debra Messing is also reportedly set to take the stage as well, according to a tweet from the Today show.
Lincoln leads the Golden Globe nominations with seven nods, while Django Unchained scored five noms. On the TV front, Showtime’s Homeland and the HBO movie Game Change topped the nominees, though there were plenty of surprises, including a Best Television Series — Comedy Or Musical nod for Smash.
Hosted by comediennes Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the ceremony airs this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
Camp Firewood fans, get ready for even more bbq sauce.
Michael Showalter, one of the writers and stars of 2001′s cult favorite Wet Hot American Summer, confirmed in February that a sequel was in the works. Now, in an appearance yesterday on Geeking Out with Kerri Doherty, he teased some details about the new film, Slashfilm reports. Watch the video after the jump. READ FULL STORY »
NBC has just released its first Tina Fey and Amy Poehler promo for the Golden Globes, and the 36-second spot packs in the laughs.
Donning golden gowns, the two funny ladies do their best old-time-y talkie voices, with Poehler declaring, “This will never get old!” They may have wised up and stopped the act a few seconds later, but honestly, that was more amusing (and replay-worthy) than plenty of award-season bits.
Both women have more to celebrate than just their first-time Globe hosting duties: They’re both up for lead actress in a comedy series. Fey has twice won the award for her role as Liz Lemon on 30 Rock; Poehler has been nominated for her part on Parks and Recreation, but never won (perhaps Globe voters will finally listen to Julia Louis-Dreyfus).
