If there’s one genre that has gained a reputation for undercooked efforts in recent times, it’s that of the romantic comedy. We’ve seen time and time again cases of Hollywood studios tossing together an ensemble cast that swaps star power and drawing in an audience for, you know, actual character development. But how does one stand out from the white noise in a category brimming with half-baked efforts? For writer-director Leslye Headland, Sleeping With Other People embodies a departure from the norm.
Community‘s Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis feature in the rom-com, which is setting itself out as a refreshingly frank and candid take on two adults who, after losing their virginity to one another in college, cross paths much later in life during a help class for sex addicts. Low and behold, the pair strike up their friendship once more on the condition that they don’t sleep together and, »

Yes, that's really Nicky Nichols front and center in the pic above. "Orange Is the New Black" star Natasha Lyonne was flanked on the red carpet on Wednesday night by costars Yael Stone (Lorna, left) and Lea DeLaria (Big Boo, right) at the premiere of her new film, "Addicted to Fresno." All three women looked completely different than their imprisoned alter-egos, shining with some fresh faces, stylish clothes and big smiles. See more of the cast's wild transformations in the gallery above! While Lyonne still had her infamous mane, it looked cleaner and shinier than it appears on "Oitnb," where Natasha plays a recovering drug addict. For Stone, her red carpet look was definitely toned down in comparison with the red lip-lovin' Lorna ... while DeLaria looked comfortable in her denim, blazer and a polo. Fans of the Netflix series were left wondering what happened to Natasha's character after the events »

A new red band trailer for the upcoming sex comedy Sleeping With Other People has arrived online, which you can view in the player below!
The comedy, written and directed by Leslye Headland (Bachelorette) and produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, stars Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses), Alison Brie (Get Hard), Adam Scott (The Overnight), Natasha Lyonne (Orange is the New Black) and Amanda Peet (The Way, Way Back).
Years after impulsively losing their virginity to each other in college, Lainey (Alison Brie) and Jake (Jason Sudeikis) meet at a support group in New York (“What’s a nice girl like you doing at a sex addicts meeting?”). A spark resurfaces, but they’ve walked this road before. Abject failures in romance who lead lives of serial infidelity and self-sabotage, they agree to a platonic friendship to mutually support their recovery—and what’s more supportive than teaching your friend proper self-stimulation? »

Can two serial cheaters get a second chance at love? After a one-night stand in college, New Yorkers Lainey (Alison Brie) and Jake (Jason Sudeikis) meet by chance twelve years later and discover they each have the same problem: because of their monogamy-challenged ways, neither can maintain a relationship.
Determined to stay friends despite their mutual attraction, they make a pact to keep it platonic, a deal that proves easier said than done. Fresh, funny, and full of witty insights about modern love, this hilariously heartfelt film “is the rare rom-com that reminds us why we love them so much in the first place” (Time Out New York).

At 52, Paula Pell is having a breakout year: She wrote Sisters, the upcoming comedy starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and just inked a deal to create a comedy for HBO about a former Olympic figure skater. Also, she's currently starring in the second season of the absurdly hilarious web series Hudson Valley Ballers, which she created with pals James Anderson and Michelle Lawler. The premise is that Pell and Anderson, both former SNL writers, decide to move to upstate New York to run a Bed and Brunch, where they meet such guest-stars as Paul Rudd, Lena Dunham, Natasha Lyonne, and many others. Before that, Pell could be seen onscreen as Ron Swanson's mom on Parks and Recreation and Pete's wife on 30 Rock, but her best-known work came as a writer for Saturday Night Live, where she started in 1995 and worked full-time until 2013 (she still comes »

The brand new Sleeping With Other People trailer has just been released, and it’s just a little bit raunchier, and swearier than previous versions. The red-band promo has just gone live for the IFC Films movie, which is released Stateside later this month.
Here’s the synopsis:
Can two serial cheaters get a second chance at love?

Brie plays a serial cheater, while Sudeikis is a womanizer in the romantic comedy. The characters first have a fling in college, then rekindle their relationship when they run into each other more than a decade later at a 12-step program for sex addicts.
“The guy I lost my virginity to was at my sex addicts meeting,” Brie admits to a friend.
The duo don’t actually have sex in the new Nsfw trailer, which does include them taking Molly and going to a children’s birthday party, discussing favorite sexual positions and Sudeikis using a plastic bottle to demonstrate how to help a woman achieve orgasm.

Alison Brie has proven time and time again her versatility. She’s demonstrated her dedication to serious depictions in Mad Men and ability to throw down her comedic genius in Community, both of which scored her fans on the small screen. Her cinematic opportunities have somewhat rescinded that same breadth of character, often leaving her with meatless supporting roles. Thankfully, her luck is on the turn for her next feature, Sleeping With Other People, in which she co-stars with another gifted comedian: Jason Sudeikis.
In the movie, the pair play former college buddies who once hooked up for a one-night stand. Years later, Lainey (Brie) and Jake (Sudeikis) bump into one another, learning that they’re both sex-obsessed and have failed to ignite meaningful relationships. As they rekindle their friendship, they pledge to keep it platonic in spite of their true natures tempting them to do otherwise.

"What positions did you do?" Hold onto your butts, this is a wild one. Thankfully with international trailers they don't have to worry about MPAA restrictions, so this one lets loose with the sex and it gets quite raunchy. La Belle Company has debuted the French trailer for Leslye Headland's indie comedy Sleeping with Other People, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year (read Ethan's review). Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie star as platonic friends who discuss life and relationships and sex mostly. The cast also includes Natasha Lyonne, Adam Scott, Amanda Peet & Daniella Pineda. This looks like a ton of fun, including all the sex, everything else that's in it, too. See the official Us trailer here.

Orange Is the New Black season three was almost perfect...except for the fact that Nicky Nichols (Natasha Lyonne) was sent down the road to maximum security after getting blamed for heroin getting into Litchfield. After the first three episodes, fans didn't see her at all (sob!), leaving us all to wonder if she'd ever return to the show. During Orange Is the New Black's 2015 Summer TCA press tour panel, Lyonne fielded questions about her fate in season four like a pro, refusing to give any spoilers away to the room of reporters who wouldn't stop trying to get any hints about her future. "I feel a great deal of solidarity with the cast of Game of Thrones," she joked. When E! News caught up with »
Featuring ad-libbing star guests, surreal jokes and a rural idyll, this web show from two Saturday Night Live writers is becoming a cult favourite
“It’s just a such strange little show,” said Paula Pell, fondly. It’s an apt description for Hudson Valley Ballers, the web series that Pell, a writer for Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock, created with fellow SNL writer James Anderson and cinematographer and writer Michelle Lawler.
The show stars Pell and Anderson as comedy writers who leave their high-stress jobs for a more low-key life in the country as bed-and-breakfast owners. What happens is anything but laid-back, with a stream of strange guests (think an intense Natasha Lyonne demanding wine), stranger love interests (Paul Rudd as a muralist for Olive Garden who does voiceovers for porn), and household horrors (did that doll just move?) interrupting their country idyll.
