Say hello to the characters of Disney-Pixar’s Inside Out

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier in the week we got a batch of character posters for Disney-Pixar’s upcoming animation Inside Out, and now a series of character promos have arrived online, introducing us to “the little voices inside our head” – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). Check them out below…

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. »

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school. Inside Out is Directed by Pete Docter (Up, Monsters Inc.), and opens on June 19, 2015. »

Watch: The Trailer For 'Wet Hot American Summer' As Directed By Martin Scorsese

21 November 2014 8:22 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Vimeo user Tommy Button has turned David Wain's cult comedy “Wet Hot American Summer” into a high octane Martin Scorsese thriller. All it takes is a Rolling Stones song (in this case “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking”) and tightly edited shots of some fluid camerawork and slow motion, as well as interjecting the words "Sex," "Money" and "Power." To be honest, seeing all the familiar faces (Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, Michael Showalter, Elizabeth Banks, Ken Marino, Michael Ian Black and Bradley Cooper) distracts a bit from the Scorsese vibe. But still, it's a clever mashup, highlighting how much cutting and music can change the film's entire feeling. But if anything, this playful video reminds me what a great cast the film has and that I should plan a rewatch in the near future. Have a look below. [Av Club] »

21 November 2014 6:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Pixar's newest heroine is Riley Anderson in "Inside Out," an animated film about a little girl with a lot of feelings. Riley's really going through a lot lately, what with her family's move from the Midwest to San Francisco, and "Inside Out" is a firsthand look at all the emotions she's struggling with inside her head.

Disney and Pixar released some super short teasers to introduce each of Riley's anthropomorphized feelings, and frankly? They're freaking adorable.

Here's Sadness, voiced by Phyllis Smith.

Ugh! Meet Disgust, voiced by Mindy Kaling.

Lewis Black is the voice of anger. Adults will get why this is funny.

Fear is voiced by Bill Hader.

And here's a teaser with all of them, which includes Amy Poehler as Joy. Yes, please!

Pixar's Inside Out - "Say Hello to" Anger, Fear, and Disgust Clips

20 November 2014 4:58 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

With seven months to go before its release, the marketing for Pixar's Inside Out has just gotten started. So far we've had a teaser trailer, posters, and an introduction video to the character of Sadness. Today we've got three more character videos, which feature Anger, Fear, and Disgust. The clips are really short. I'm guessing we'll see our first full trailer around Christmas (but that's a complete guess).

Official synopsis:

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith).

20 November 2014 1:55 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Parks and Recreation fans know that Leslie Knope has only one man she loves more than her husband Ben WyattJoe Biden. Yes, Joe Biden.


The vice president turned 72 on Thursday, and while Leslie is likely showering him with gifts – Et got the backstory behind our favorite running TV gag.

Watch: 'Parks and Rec' Star Chris Pratt Is GQ's Man of the Year

Et caught up with Parks and Rec co-creator Mike Schur who told us how our favorite quip came about.

"It was a very casual joke pitched in the writers room one day a long time ago," said Schur. "It just sort of took hold, and once you give a writers room a bone like that, they are just going to chew it forever."

After five seasons of persistent Biden references, the VP finally made a cameo on the series.

The lovebirds appeared together on the series premiere of Late Night With Seth Meyers in February »

New Inside Out Character Videos Introducing Fear, Disgust and Anger

20 November 2014 1:39 PM, PST | | See recent news »

We got a brief introduction to Sadness (voiced by Phyllis Smith) a few days ago and now it’s time to meet Fear (Bill Hader), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Anger (Lewis Black) as well.  Those four plus Joy (Amy Poehler) make up young Riley’s emotions and it’s up to them to help her adjust when she moves to San Francisco in Pixar’s latest, Inside Out. The promo material for Inside Out hasn’t been as mind-blowing as one might expect and these new character videos are no different.  There’s nothing wrong with them, but there’s also nothing about them to suggest Inside Out will be worth the two-year wait since Pixar’s last release, Monsters University.  Hit the jump to check out the new Inside Out character videos for yourself.  The film is set to open in 3D on June 19, 2015.

New TV Shows Could Break Into Crowded SAG Awards

20 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One thing you’ve got to hand to the SAG TV voters, they’re loyal to a fault. When it comes to the categories for individual acting, once they find someone they like, they stick with them.

Each year a host of veterans, not to mention a steady stream of series newcomers, is forced into the cold by familiar, entrenched names in comedy and drama alike.

So amidst the universal mourning for the “Breaking Bad” and “30 Rock” finales, there must have been a certain amount of secret glee among thesps. After all, the spot Bryan Cranston occupied in male actor, drama, for five consecutive years is now open for business, as are Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey’s in the comedy division, where they competed, and usually triumphed, a total of 15 times.

Opening up Cranston’s slot is particularly tantalizing, since the drama field is crowded indeed. Steve Buscemi of »

Jon Hamm, Rashida Jones, Rob Lowe Will Return to 'Parks and Recreation' for Final Season

20 November 2014 8:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Parks and Recreation" is packing in the guest stars for its upcoming seventh and final season, with two key former cast members -- and one surprise guest star -- set to reprise their roles.

First, Entertainment Weekly reports that Jon Hamm, who had a small, memorable cameo in last season's finale, will return as Ed. Leslie (Amy Poehler) fired Ed during the final moments of the sixth season, calling him the worst employee of the National Parks Association -- even worse than Jerry Larry Terry (Jim O'Heir).

"Parks and Rec" boss Mike Schur told EW earlier this year that he had wanted Hamm to reprise his role, though in a more covert way than expected. "If I have my way, every episode where you see events that take place before that moment will include a shot of him doing something insanely incompetent," Schur said. We'll see if that vision pans out. »

Hulu picks up Billy Eichner’s ‘Difficult People’

19 November 2014 6:37 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I have a medical condition called caring too much about TV. Amy Poehler’s sitcom Difficult People just got a straight-to-series order from Hulu. Originally USA produced the pilot, but then the network decided to move away from developing comedies. USA’s loss is Hulu’s gain. The comedy stars Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner, who have worked together in the Emmy-nominated Billy on the Street.

According to Beatrice Springborn, head of Hulu Originals, the series “follows Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner as best friends and struggling comedians in New York City who can’t figure out why they aren’t likeable.  Klausner wrote the pilot and will also serve as an executive producer for the series alongside Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation) and Dave Becky (Louie).”

Production will start early next year. Perhaps they will run down the streets screaming about Meryl Streep.

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Jimmy Kimmel got to reveal People's new Sexiest Man Alive Tuesday night, but first he made the studio audience guess. He is not in a band. He does not like to drive a Lincoln. (Not McConaughey.) He's not over 35. He has not been Sexiest Man Alive before. He is an actor. He is not single. He is only hairy on his head. He was not born in the USA. He has played a superhero in a movie. He has a famous sibling. His hero does use a hammer. They knew! It's Chris Hemsworth! Chris did his Skype interview from Australia, where it was about 12:30 p.m. the next day. »
