Watch: Paul Rudd Gets Called Out for His Career Failures on 'The Jack and Triumph Show'

27 February 2015 7:51 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

By all accounts, Paul Rudd has had a pretty successful career. After achieving cult icon status early on with "Wet Hot American Summer" and "Clueless," the likable Average Joe-type moved up to comedy hits like "The 40 Year Old Virgin," "I Love You, Man," "Role Models" and "Knocked Up" (not to mention his unforgettable roles on "Friends" and "Parks and Recreation").  But that's not what Triumph remembers. In the exclusive clip below, Triumph — a former '70s & '80s TV star who's fallen on hard times — makes a mess of things for his ex-co-star Jack, who's finally gotten back on the right track after being sucked down an ugly wormhole with Triumph. The two run into Paul Rudd at a coffee shop, and one of them (hint: the talking puppet) can't let bygones be bygones, calling out Rudd's movie star status after flops like "Wanderlust," "This is 40" and "Admission. »

How Parks and Recreation Gave Chris Pratt the Platform to be a Star

26 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There’s a version of this article that tries to argue that Chris Pratt is the secret Mvp of the Parks and Recreations universe, combing through all the previous hours of the series to show just how Pratt’s performance as Andy Dwyer provided it energy and jokes that flushed out the show’s comic tone better than almost any other character. The article would then end with an impassioned plea for Hollywood to take notice and not waste this clearly singular comic talent. That article doesn’t exist because Chris Pratt did the unthinkable and went and made himself a big ol’ movie star.

The notion that a relatively low-performing sitcom airing on broadcast television could have within its stable of stars two McU superheroes (Ant-Man, coming this summer) is relatively ridiculous, even given that one of those stars is Paul Rudd. But Chris Pratt has spent seven seasons »

‘Parks & Recreation’ Finale: Mike Schur on ‘Sopranos’ Inspirations, Easter Eggs and the White House Question

24 February 2015 8:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s a tough task to end a series after seven much-loved seasons, but “Parks and Recreation” showrunner Mike Schur proved more than up to the job. He co-wrote tonight’s finale, “One Last Ride,” with series star Amy Poehler and also directed the flash forward-filled episode, a love letter to both the show’s crazy characters and devoted fans.

Variety spoke with Schur by phone a few hours before the finale aired on the East Coast — he’s in New York for an appearance with the “Parks” crew on tonight’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” He happily answered questions about his writing process with Poehler, which flash forwards didn’t make it into the final cut, whether or not we’ll ever see the Pawnee gang again, and, of course, the tantalizing tease of President Leslie Knope. He also dropped a hint about a Jean-Ralphio easter egg. (“Parks” fans, »

Parks and Recreation Boss on [Spoiler]'s Series Finale Return and the Perils of Predicting the Future

24 February 2015 7:59 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Warning: The following Q&A contains spoilers from Tuesday’s Parks and Recreation series finale.

Let’s do the time warp again.

That was the mentality of Parks and Recreation‘s writers as they approached the NBC comedy’s super-sized series finale, according to showrunner Mike Schur.

“We had just done this time jump to get from the end of Season 6 to the beginning of Season 7, so it was sitting right there,” Schur says of the show’s final episode, which consisted of multiple flash-forwards into the lives of the Pawnee gang. “We were like, ‘Well, why don’t we just keep jumping through time? »

14 Recurring Characters We Love on 'Parks and Rec'

23 February 2015 7:09 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

As Parks and Recreation takes its final bow, we’re also saying a tearful goodbye to the Pawnee residents who shaped the town and gave the series a special place in our hearts.

As much as we adore Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) and Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman), some of our most beloved moments, (and favorite one-liners) in the series came from the eccentrically quirky minor characters. From Li'l Sebastian to Jean-Ralphio (Ben Schwartz), we’re breaking down our favorite recurring characters on Parks and Rec -- in no particular order.

1. Bobby Newport

The adorably dim-witted son of the Sweetums empire, Bobby -- played by Paul Rudd -- was first introduced as Leslie’s opponent for City Council. His charming and naive strategy on the campaign trail almost cost Leslie the election.

2. Dennis Feinstein

Dennis Feinstein (Jason Mantzoukas), “whose real name is Dante Fiero but he changed it because Dennis Feinstein is more exotic in Pawnee,” is the head »

Edgar Wright Blamed for No 'Ant-Man' in 'Avengers 2'

20 February 2015 2:09 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel's Phase Two comes to an end later this year, with Avengers: Age of Ultron hitting theaters on May 1 and Ant-Man arriving on July 17. Ant-Man was actually one of the founding members of The Avengers in the comic books, and he also created the villainous Ultron, who will be played by James Spader in Avengers 2. Director Joss Whedon had to make some changes to the villain's origins in this impending sequel, with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) now creating the robot who eventually turns on the team, an alteration that several fans still aren't too happy about. During an interview with Empire Magazine, the writer-director revealed why he didn't included Hank Pym in this sequel, with a lot of the blame being placed on former Ant-Man director Edgar Wright:

"Of all the heat I've ever taken, not having Hank Pym was one of the bigger things. But the fact of the matter was, »

'Parks and Recreation' history, Part 2: Bill Murray, Burt Macklin & more

19 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Yesterday, I published the first half of a long email exchange with “Parks and Recreation” co-creator Mike Schur looking at the origins and evolutions of some of the show’s most memorable supporting characters and running gags. That discussion concludes today with talk of DJ Roomba (who came very close to never being a part of our lives), Li’l Sebastian, Burt Macklin and a lot more. But we start out with the first — and last — appearance of Pawnee’s greatest mystery man. I know you had talked in the past about wanting to get Bill Murray to play the occasionally-mentioned but never-seen Mayor Gunderson. How did that actually come about? And if he had said no, was there a back-up Gunderson plan, or would he have simply remained a mystery forever? Mike Schur: We wanted to do an episode in the final season where someone died. We settled on Gunderson, »

Yes No Maybe So: Trainwreck

16 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here to discuss one of last week’s hottest trailers by one of my favorite funny ladies. After the success of Bridesmaids ($288 million worldwide gross and 2 Oscar nominations), it’s not surprising seeing Judd Apatow partnering up with another small-screen comedy talent for her big screen debut.

Written by Amy Schumer and directed by Apatow himself comes Trainwreck ("We all know one" the poster coyingly tells us), which opens this July as a nice bit of counter-programming (it goes up against Apatow-alum Paul Rudd's Ant-Man so you know where my momey that weekend will be going to). The film will first show itself over at SXSW as a "work-in-progress" so we'll have word of what to expect sooner rather than later, though it shows great confidence in the material. It also tells us precisely what kind of demographic they're hoping to muster enthusiasm among. Both Funny People and »
