Tina Fey’s Description of SNL Kids’ Playdate Will Destroy You

18 September 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Warning: This clip is real cute. We know you clicked on it expecting cuteness, but it's cuter. Apparently, while shooting The Nest, Maya Rudolph, Amy Poehler, Rachel Dratch, and Tina Fey had a playdate for all their kids. Towards the end of the clip, Fey talks about how easy it is to tell which kid belongs to which actress, and it will destroy you. Okay, we have sufficiently warned you. Bye, forever. »

They Came Together Blu-ray Review

18 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When Wet Hot American Summer came out in 2001, it was released by USA Films – a company that eventually morphed into Focus Features, but at the time had no real footing theatrically.  That may explain why the film was barely released, but eventually found a cult audience.  Considering it was written by Michael Showalter and David Wain (the latter of whom directed the film), and featured many members of The State there was almost a guarantee it would be funny, but the fledging USA Films didn’t know how to sell it.  Originally Showalter and Wain wanted to follow that film with They Came Together, which they were unable to make until recently, and it was also given a small theatrical release (but was also put on VOD).  But now that it’s on home video, it seems likely it too will become a cult favorite.  Starring Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, »

18 September 2014 5:43 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The introduction to “Saturday Night Live” will undoubtedly sound different this season, but it'll also have an air of familiarity. NBC's iconic sketch show will bring in former cast member Darrell Hammond, who was on the program from 1995-2009, to replace the late Don Pardo as the show's announcer, TheWrap has confirmed. Pardo died in August at the age of 96, having announced during all but one of “SNL's” 39 seasons.

Happy Birthday, Amy Poehler! Did Tina Fey Even Remember To Call You This Year?

16 September 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Guess who turns 43 today? Amy Poehler! But she shouldn't be surprised if her Bff Tina Fey doesn't call or send a card. "I'm going to forget it like I do every year and she'll forget mine," Fey told me last night at the premiere of her new movie This Is Where I Leave You (in theaters on Friday). "But maybe this year, I'll remember because you helped me." As for a gift, Fey may have been inspired by Orange Is the New Black. "Just boxes of cigarettes, like we're in prison!" she joked (at least we think she was joking). Fey and Poehler first cracked us up when they were on Saturday Night Live together after first meeting in an improve »

Ryan Gosling Is Officially a Dilf: Eva Mendes Gives Birth to Baby Girl, Couple Welcomes First Child Together

16 September 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Are you sitting down? Us Weekly is reporting that Eva Mendes gave birth on Friday, Sept. 12, welcoming a baby girl with partner Ryan Gosling. Congratulations to them? It felt like the world came crashing down in July when reports surfaced that Mendes was expecting her first child with Gosling, and thus Baby Goose could no longer participate in your detailed fantasies of marriage. On the bright side: Gosling is now officially a Dilf. The couple’s daughter, who will obviously be ridiculously good looking, is a Virgo, which puts her in the company of Amy Poehler and Beyoncé (not bad). And let’s be honest: You can’t wait for the first photos of Gosling wearing a Baby Bjorn to the farmers market.

How are you feeling? How is Rachel McAdams feeling?

Quiz: The Films of Jason Bateman

12 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s widely agreed that there is no shortage of comedic talent in the film industry today. With actors like Jason Segel, Amy Poehler, Seth Rogen, Tina Fey, and Paul Rudd showing no sign of taking any time off from their day jobs, at any given time one can typically find at least one comedy featuring one of these popular leads in theatres.

Jason Bateman is one of the stand-out actors working today, building a solid reputation as one of the industry’s funniest leading men. He started acting in comedy at a young age, working in a number of television shows in the 80s and 90s. In 2003, he took on the role of Michael Bluth in a little show called "Arrested Development". This went on to become one of his most critically acclaimed performances, and the demand to bring the Bluths back was so high that another season was released on Netflix last year. »

12 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

This weekend gives you two chances to see Bill Hader stretch his acting muscles.

Meanwhile, in The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them, Hader has a supporting role as the best friend of James McAvoy’s Conor, who is going through a pretty rough time in his relationship with Jessica Chastain’s titular character.

Saturday Night Live actors taking on dramatic—or, rather, serious—roles is nothing new. Wiig has steadily been putting films with weighty themes onto her resume, »

Matthew Weiner of Mad Men fame is coming you way with his feature film writing/directing debut, Are You Here. The bizarre-sounding story is brought to you with a cast you might expect isn’t difficult for someone with Mad Men under his belt to get into his film.

Steve Dalls (Owen Wilson), a womanizer and local television personality, is a friend of Ben’s, and decides to join up with Ben to fight the legal battle brought by Ben’s sister (Amy Poehler), but there’s a lot more going on than that. Check the trailer below for more of an idea of the ins and outs of friendship that are explored in this one.

The comedy certainly has the talent, including an impressive supporting cast, »

Yes, Chris Pratt Is Hosting the SNL Premiere

10 September 2014 7:55 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Chris Pratt will host the 40th season premiere of Saturday Night Live on September 27, with musical guest Ariana Grande, NBC announced today. (Just as we predicted!) Sarah Silverman will host the following week, with musical guest Maroon 5. This is Pratt's first time hosting and Grande's first time as musical guest, but Silverman was a cast member in the '93–'94 season, and this will be Maroon 5's fifth time on the show. (Plus, Adam Levine hosted in 2013.) Now it's time to place bets on whether or not Amy Poehler will appear on the premiere in support of her Parks and Rec co-star ... Let's bet yes, just as a gesture of hope. »

Chris Pratt Will Host the 'Saturday Night Live' Season Premiere

10 September 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Bust out the tater tots! Chris Pratt will host the season premiere of "Saturday Night Live" on September 27, alongside young songbird Ariana Grande. This isn't just any old season premiere, though. It's the 40th anniversary of "SNL," which kicked off in 1975 with Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Chevy Chase, Gilda Radner, Jane Curtin, and other comic stalwarts. Of course, Pratt's "Parks and Rec" boss Amy Poehler rocked the mic at "SNL" before leaving to have a baby in 2008.

Given the glorious history of cameo appearances on "SNL," we've got our fingers crossed that Poehler might show up, or maybe even Anna Faris, the very funny real-life love of the Star-Lord himself. In any case, we're looking forward to seeing Pratt's sketch prowess.

Pratt and the "Parks" crew were in DC this past week to film some scenes for the next season. Check out the pics!
