Orange Is the New Black's Natasha Lyonne Weighs In On Nicky's Fate: "There's Going To Be Hell To Pay"

10 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

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 »

Hudson Valley Ballers: SNL writers hit the country with a few funny guests

27 July 2015 1:04 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

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.

Judy Greer to Guest Star on ‘Masters of Sex’

24 July 2015 9:09 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Judy Greer will guest star on the third season of Showtime’s “Masters of Sex.”

Greer will play Alice Logan, the wife of guest star Josh Charles’ character, Dan Logan, a perfume magnate who approaches Masters (Michael Sheen) and Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) about bottling the smell of sex.

A recovering alcoholic and long-suffering spouse, Alice joins her husband and Masters and Johnson for a painful dinner in which agendas collide, truths are exposed and no relationship emerges in the state it entered.

The in-demand actress currently appears in two FX comedies, starring opposite Nat Faxon in “Married” and voicing Cheryl on the animated series “Archer.” She can presently be seen in Marvel’s “Ant-Man” as Paul Rudd’s ex-wife.

Earlier this summer, Greer had a supporting role alongside Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in “Jurassic World,” which is now the third-highest grossing film in box office history, generating more than $1.52 billion worldwide. »

How Cobie Smulders Met Her 'Unexpected' Indie-Movie Future

23 July 2015 7:26 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Cobie Smulders is not accustomed to being singled out. The How I Met Your Mother star and Marvel universe apparatchik tends to operate in the company of others, which is why she found herself somewhat stricken with panic earlier this year at the Sundance premiere of her latest film, Unexpected, which opens in theaters and on demand this Friday. "Oh shit," she recalls thinking. "I'm in every scene."

It's true, she is — though it's about time. Fans of her CBS sitcom, which concluded its nine-season run last year, might agree »

Watch: Judy Greer & Natasha Lyonne in 'Addicted to Fresno' Trailer

21 July 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Ya'll ready for this?!" Gravitas Ventures has debuted a trailer for the indie comedy Addicted to Fresno, from filmmaker Jamie Babbit (Breaking the Girls, Itty Bitty Titty Committee). This kooky indie stars Judy Greer & Natasha Lyonne as sisters at a hotel in Fresno, California. When one of them accidentally kills a guy, they go to extreme lengths to cover up the crime. The supporting cast includes Aubrey Plaza, Clea DuVall, Allison Tolman, Ron Livingston, Molly Shannon and Fred Armisen. This looks funny at times, but doesn't seem like anything that stands out in a crowd. At least it's nice to see more of Judy Greer. Here's the official trailer for Jamie Babbit's Addicted to Fresno, found on YouTube (via The Playlist): Synopsis: Two co-dependent sisters, a recovering sex addict and a lonely lesbian (played by Judy Greer and Natasha Lyonne) who work as hotel maids, go to ludicrous »

Watch: Judy Greer And Natasha Lyonne Cover Up A Crime In Trailer For 'Addicted To Fresno' With Aubrey Plaza, Fred Armisen, More

21 July 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For those of you getting a bit bummed about Judy Greer spending the summer in thankless Blockbuster Mom roles (seriously Hollywood, she's great and deserves better), here's a movie that gives the actress so much more to do. "Addicted To Fresno" features Greer in the lead role alongside a pretty talented ensemble, in what looks like a pretty light-hearted comedy caper. Directed by Jamie Babbitt ("But I'm A Cheerleader") with Natasha Lyonne, Fred Armisen, Molly Shannon, Ron Livingston, Allison Tolman, and Aubrey Plaza among the players, the story follows a recovering sex addict and her lesbian sister, who work together at Fresno Suites and get caught up in covering up a crime after they accidentally kill a hotel guest. This looks light and breezy, but again, the highlight seems to be Greer given a major big screen spotlight. The film opens on October 2nd. Check out the trailer below. »

"I Got Fired Because I F**ked a Bunch of People"

17 July 2015 2:45 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Judy Greer is a very fun actress who often brings plenty of depth to her characters. Of course, this year she's had two awful characters to play in both Jurassic World and Ant-Man and I'm not sure if she had more than two minutes of screen time in Tomorrowland... that movie is sort of a blur to me at this point and best left forgotten. However, it does appear Greer does have one solid performance on the horizon in Jamie Babbit's Fresno (now apparently titled Addicted to Fresno). Here's the plot: Fresno is a comedy about co-dependent sisters who work as hotel maids in Fresno, CA. Shannon (Judy Greer) is fresh out of sex rehab when her younger, overly optimistic lesbian sister Martha (Natasha Lyonne) lands her a job as a maid at Fresno Suites, the local hotel. When Shannon jeopardizes her fresh start by accidentally killing a hotel guest after a post-rehab relapse, »

Read More: SXSW: How Natasha Lyonne and Judy Greer Escaped the Hollywood Boys Club for 'Fresno' Judy Greer is normally the level-headed sidekick, and Natasha Lyonne the crazy mess, but not this time around. Jamie Babbit's SXSW comedy "Addicted to Fresno" runs far away from typecasting by starring Greer as the sex-addicted wreck, Shannon, and Lyonne as her strangely optimistic sister, Martha. The film follows the two sisters as Shannon comes out of sex rehab and gets a job as a maid at the hotel where her sister works. After Shannon relapses and accidentally kills a hotel guest, her and Martha go on an all-out adventure to cover up the crime. "Addicted to Fresno" marks the second collaboration between Lyonne and Babbit after the 1999 cult hit, "But I'm a Cheerleader." The comedy also stars Aubrey Plaza, Fred Armisen, Jessica St. Clair, Molly Shannon, Michael Hitchcock and Ron Livingston. The »

Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie are just friends in ‘Sleeping With Other People’ trailer

26 June 2015 8:02 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Though it’s been described as “When Harry Met Sally for assholes”, the Sundance, R-rated rom-com Sleeping With Other People may be closer to When Harry Met Sally meets Shame.

Director Leslye Headland’s comedy is about two ex-lovers and now platonic friends who remain “just friends” because of their exhaustive sex addictions, fearing that sex might ruin the relationship they have. Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie are the titular couple who in the film’s first trailer can be seen getting stoned at a children’s birthday party and sleeping around in destructive fashion. Here’s the official synopsis:

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.
