Peet's pro! Amanda Peet has not been shy about advocating for parents to vaccinate their children.

'Togetherness': The life comedic with Steve Zissis

9 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For the most part, the excellence of HBO’s “Togetherness” isn’t surprising. Co-creators Mark and Jay Duplass have a long track record with films they either wrote and directed themselves or supported in some way, Melanie Lynskey and Amanda Peet have lots of fine performances on their resumes, and even Mark Duplass himself has turned out to be an interesting and versatile actor as his career has evolved. The one unknown is the man who is in many ways the reason the show exists: co-star and co-creator Steve Zissis, a longtime friend and collaborator of the brothers Duplass who hasn’t had many prominent roles outside of their films. As Alex, a talented but underemployed actor crashing on his best friend’s couch, Zissis gets to be funny, charming, and at times heartbreaking over the course of this eight-episode first season. (Four episodes have aired so far; HBO recently ordered a second season. »

Sleeping with Other People | 2015 Sundance Film Festival Review

4 February 2015 11:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Other People’s Mousetraps: Headland Heads to Romcom

One of the most acerbically hilarious new voices in the American indie world is writer/director Leslye Headland, whose dark hearted 2012 directorial debut Bachelorette was a jagged counterpoint to the unoffending female comedy fantasies, something like Bridesmaids but more uneasily wicked. After writing 2014’s remake of About Last Night, she’s back with her sophomore effort, Sleeping with Other People, a romcom that borrows a bit heavily from When Harry Met Sally. At times funny and sincere in its depiction of modern heterosexual romantic entanglements, Headland’s latest also becomes a bit too self-aware of its own conventions, and instead of reinventing them, sadly becomes a willing victim to its own fantastic monstrousness. Described playfully by the director as a ‘love grenade’ at the film’s premiere, Headland may very well launch bombs at formulaic interpretations of love, sex, and the whole damn thing, »

One of the most talked about makeup looks of the 2015 Golden Globe Awards was Taylor Schilling's classic yet modern adaptation of Grace Kelly. The woman behind the look was none other than New York-based celebrity makeup artist and E! Style Collective member Tina Turnbow. As a long time makeup artist for Patricia Arquette, Marisa Tomei, Amanda Peet and Keri Russell, it's obvious that Tina is sought after for more than just her skills with a brush. The beauty guru is truly dedicated to her clients, makeup and finding inspiration, whether that is '70s punk and photography or New York City itself. She expresses herself through beauty but let's really see how she came and conquered the wonderful world of »

Title: Sleeping with Other People Director: Leslye Headland Starring: Jason Sudeikis, Alison Brie, Adam Scott, Amanda Peet, Jason Mantzoukas, Andrea Savage, Natasha Lyonne Can men and women ever be just friends? Films like No Strings Attached and Friends with Benefits have suggested that if sex enters the equation, all bets are off, since romance and love are inevitable consequences of a physical relationship. In Sleeping with Other People, two people meet one night in college and lose their virginities to each other, and then are not reunited for twelve years. Realizing just how much sex has ruined every relationship either of them has ever had, they decide to avoid any  [ Read More ]

Jason Mantzoukas: Banned from getting naked in 'Sleeping With Other People'

27 January 2015 9:02 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City, Utah -- Jason Mantzoukas co-starred in Sundance pic "Sleeping With Other People" with comedians and other comedic actors including improv partner Jason Sudeikis, "Community's" Alison Brie, "Parks & Recreation" cohort Adam Scott, Amanda Peet, and Andrea Savage. From the sound of it, the work wasn't all that... worky. The sex/relationship comedy is about "figuring it out, and f*cking it up," Mantzoukas said from the premiere's red carpet at Sundance. But he was floored by his scenes with Savage -- who plays his wife in the film -- and, overall, it was a low-maintenance cast. However, there was a stipulation for Mantzoukas in this romp. "I was not naked. They wouldn't let me." Cue the sad trombones. Watch our interview above, on why he thinks "Parks & Rec" is one of the "most delightful" shows to work on, how "The League" doesn't turn to shambles, what Billy Eichner »

HBO’s Togetherness Has Been Renewed for Season Two

27 January 2015 9:01 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

HBO has renewed the Duplass brothers' Togetherness for a second season. The series, about two couples (Mark Duplass, Melanie Lynskey; Amanda Peet, Steve Zissis) struggling to coexist in the same Eagle Rock house — all while pursuing their own long-shot dreams — premiered this year to mostly positive reviews. "We began our love affair with HBO in our parents' living room in 1983, and to have these brilliant creative people put a ring on our fingers with a second season of Togetherness is a real-life dream come true," Mark and Jay Duplass said in a cute statement today. The show restarts production this year for a debut date sometime next year, which just means 2016 will feature more wonderfully bromantic Mark DuplassSteve Zissis interactions. Happy New Year in advance. »

HBO renews 'Togetherness' for season 2

27 January 2015 4:05 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

HBO has ordered a second season of "Togetherness." The dramedy, created by brothers Jay and Mark Duplass and their friend (and Mark's "Togetherness" co-star) Steve Zissis, is part of a very Sundance Film Festival-flavored current HBO Sunday lineup, with "Girls" and "Looking," so it feels appropriate that renewal would come while this year's Sundance — where so much of the talk has been about the ways that television is providing new opportunities for independent filmmakers — is still ongoing. HBO already renewed "Girls," which leaves "Looking" as their only current Sunday show whose fate is still up in the air. I imagine that's more a question of when, not if, but we'll see. I liked "Togetherness" a lot, and am happy to hear that the show will continue. Hoping to do a couple of follow-up pieces later in the season, but I'm curious how people are feeling about it so far. Do you like Zissis and Duplass? »

Amanda Peet Told Game of Thrones Creator Husband David Benioff That Show Was a "Terrible" Idea

27 January 2015 12:17 PM, PST | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Good thing he didn't take her advice! A few years back, Amanda Peet almost led her husband David Benioff seriously astray.  The Togetherness actress, 43, has been married to the Game of Thrones co-creator since 2006 and they share three children: Frankie, 7, Molly, 4, and Henry, 1 month. When Benioff, 44, first discussed the idea for his HBO series with his wife, however, she was hardly a fan. "I thought it was a terrible idea," the Good Wife alum spilled to Conan O'Brien on Conan on Monday, [...] »
