Parks and Rec's Amy Poehler develops animated comedy at Fox

18 August 2017 12:45 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I loved Parks And Recreation. While that was certainly due to its fun and eccentric cast of characters (I'm a Ben man myself), it was nonetheless buoyed by Amy Poehler's glowing and positive performance. However, while Poehler is a gifted performer, she is also no stranger to writing or developing comedy ideas of her own. So it's no surprise to hear that she's spearheading an animated comedy pilot, with an idea she came... Read More »

Aubrey Plaza talks social media friendships and Ingrid Goes WestAubrey Plaza talks social media friendships and Ingrid Goes WestBob Strauss - Cineplex Magazine8/17/2017 11:12:00 Am

Aubrey Plaza goes crazy in Ingrid Goes West. But the 33-year-old comic actor — renowned for her ability to make sarcasm, world-weariness and being downright mean hilarious in everything from TV’s "Parks and Recreation" to big-screen broad comedies like 2016’s Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates — also went somewhere else in this cyber-stalking dramedy; deeper and more dramatically into a role than she ever has before.

“This film allowed me to have the screen time to really develop something that is really layered,” says Plaza, wearing a flower-print sundress during a Los Angeles interview. “I don’t get that opportunity that much, and this is all from Ingrid’s perspective, I’m in every single scene in the movie.

Aubrey Plaza on the Popularity Contest of Social Media, Her Dream Project with Bette Midler, and ‘Ingrid Goes West’

14 August 2017 5:51 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Even though she’s widely considered to be the Queen of Dry Wit, sitting in the hotel room where we’re about to talk about her latest film Ingrid Goes West, there’s an unexpected innocence to Aubrey Plaza that makes her seem more like Sandy from Grease before the makeover. She’s wearing a dark baseball jacket over a lovely plaid dress in blush tones, and rather than welcoming me with a raised eyebrow, she smiles. I reach out my hand to her to say hello and apologize because it’s cold, she raises the eyebrow and explains, “I’m sorry too because my hand is warm.” And suddenly Sandy has given path to the sardonic Rizzo. Since her breakthrough in Parks & Recreation, Plaza has become one of the funniest people in the industry. Period. Few actors can accomplish so much using so little and making it seem so effortless, »

‘Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later’ Review

12 August 2017 1:15 AM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

I have never been the biggest fan of the original ‘Wet Hot American Summer‘. Although it has attained cult status over the years, I never found the film to be memorable as others do. In fact, when Netflix revived the franchise a little over two years ago with an eight episode prequel series titled “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp“, I pretty much had the same feeling. With the latest entry in the revival, “Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later“, we finally get a true sequel to the original. And the premise is simple: the campers and counsels of camp firewood reunite a decade later to fulfill their promise made in the first film. Hilarity ensues. But the question still remains; does it follow the aforementioned trend of it’s predecessors? Well, the simple answer is no–but the more complicated answer, is inevitably yes.

David Wain Explains That Insane ‘Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later’ Ending

10 August 2017 8:41 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Somewhat impossibly, the cult hit Wet Hot American Summer has spawned two star-studded Netflix miniseries. When the film hit theaters in 2001, it was a dud. Critics didn’t love it, audiences didn’t show up, and it disappeared from cinemas as quickly as it appeared. But over the years it grew a massive cult following, partly due to the fact that it featured so many now-famous actors in early roles, from Paul Rudd to Amy Poehler to Bradley Cooper. Co-writers David Wain and Michael Showalter always said they had an idea to do a prequel to … »

Aubrey Plaza knows what it’s like to fall down an Instagram rabbit hole.

The Ingrid Goes West actress and producer told People at the film’s New York premiere Tuesday night that she allowed herself to do a little Instagram stalking in preparation for filming.

“I did allow myself to indulge in going down those rabbit holes of Instagram and to really look at other people’s stuff way too long,” says Plaza, 33. “In my real life I don’t do that, I have enough self control to go, ‘Okay, I’ve been on here too long — I don »

Exclusive: Billy Eichner on Emmy-Nominated 'Billy on the Street' and the Sketch That Went Badly

9 August 2017 1:42 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Billy Eichner is taking Hollywood by storm one hit series at a time. While the comedian-actor is currently filming the upcoming season of American Horror Story: Cult and promoting the third season of Hulu’s Difficult People, Eichner is also celebrating an Emmy nomination for the show that started it all for him.

TruTV’s Billy on the Street, which finds Eichner roaming the streets of New York with celebrities and asking pedestrians outrageous pop-culture trivia questions, received its first Emmy nomination this year for Best Variety Sketch Series.

“We are a little show that really came a long way,” Eichner gushed when he sat down with Et’s Nischelle Turner at Tavern on the Green in New York City on Tuesday.

The series, which has been on for five seasons, is up against some serious heavy hitters in the category, including Saturday Night Live.

“I grew up watching Saturday Night Live,” Eichner commented »
