The sexy actress appears to be taking a full-on gust in the face in the Tall Boy promo and she told comedian George Lopez the effect was created by garden equipment.
She told the chat show host, "This video was shot for no money, so when you don't have money... you gotta get creative. To get this cool special effect we, basically, used a leafblower."
Lopez learned about the story before the show and had a leafblower backstage. The actress switched it on and pointed it in the host's face to recreate the video effect. »
Every other day is a holiday somewhere. Even today is a holiday (Veterans Day). So the guys behind Crappy Holidays have a lot to play around with. For the 8-month old web series, no holiday—Labor Day, St. Patrick's Day, 4th of July, not even Veterans Day, is off limits. Woven throughout the series is comedian Har Mar Superstar, who stands as the main recurring character amidst a cadre of celebrity guest stars like Juno star Ellen Page, Justin Long and Ginnifer Goodwin. We caught up with creator-director Ryan Rickett to find out where this series came from and what he really thinks of the modern holiday circuit. Tubefilter: Where did you come up with this idea and how did it become a web series? Ryan Rickett: Har Mar Superstar (aka Sean Tillmann) and I made a video greeting card for Christmas to send out to all our friends and »

As the week comes to a close here in the MTV Newsroom, we're left with a handful of questions before we slide out the door and into the weekend. Is it too late to start training for the New York Marathon? (Answer: Yes, as it's Sunday.) Is this weekend when we roll the clocks back? (Yes, so enjoy an extra hour of sleep before running the marathon.) What's going to be the most popular costume for Halloween? (We've already seen more Sookie Stackhouses than we care to count.) But most importantly: What might you have missed this week here on the Newsroom blog? Lucky for you,
we have whole cornucopia of answers ready and waiting for your clicking pleasure.

New York — If you had the pleasure of catching Har Mar Superstar on Tuesday night's "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," you might have noticed something missing from the performance: his signature bare chest and thighs.
"A lot of times when I do television appearances, the producers would ask me to get down to the underwear," said Sean Tillman, the man behind the glitz and glamour. "We want the balls on TV! We want everyone to know what drew us to you."
But the charismatic crooner kept his clothes on while performing "Tall Boy," the lead single from his new album Dark Touches.
" 'Tall boy' is such a vocal-heavy song, »
If you're like me, you woke up Tuesday morning (like, really, really early), stumbled down to your underground media bunker (not as sexy as it sounds) and did a triple take when you saw the phrase "Har Mar Superstar" at the very top of Google Trends. Like, above Rudolph Valentino and the hot Mormon muffins calendar.
But we were probably confused for different reasons. See, I know who Har Mar is. In fact, I'm a huge fan of the balding, tubby Minnesota hunk of white funk thunder who bears an uncanny resemblance to Jon Lovitz' character in "The Critic." The singer (who also records under the name Sean Na Na and whose given name is Sean Tillman) has been making waves the past few weeks thanks to the outrageously weird video for the first single, "Tall Boy," from his new album, Dark Touches. In case you haven't seen it, »

The versatile Eva Mendes brings the A-list to the hit list!
Mendes stars in Har Mar Superstar's "Tall Boy" music video from his latest album Dark Touches -- a track that's been gaining major buzz. Har Mar's eclectic music hasn't caught just Mendes' eye... er, ear -- he's been featured on MTV's "The Hills!"
Mendes took time out of her busy schedule to shoot the video. Her latest film, "Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, »
Over the years, there have been hundreds of television shows featuring many stereotypes of people in their teens and early 20s: The school-obsessed nerd, the cheerleader who gets all the dudes, the hospital residents sleeping together while trying to become respected surgeons. It’s time for the hipsters to be recognized, and who better to point them out than Ellen Page?
Last night, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Page and her Whip It co-stars Alia Shawkat and Sean Tillman (aka Har Mar Superstar) are writing a new show for HBO, taking on the Williamsburg and Silver Lake hipster set. Clearly, it will be a comedy and surely it’s time for someone to give hipsters a much-deserved teasing.
If you are unfamiliar with Har Mar, you might recall seeing him in the Journey parody he made with the actresses earlier this year, or the new video, Crappy Canadian Thanksgiving.

Curious about Stitch N' Bitch, the HBO project announced today that's coming from the unlikely trio of Ellen Page, Alia Shawkat, and Har Mar Superstar (or, as the trades ID'd him, "Sean Tillman")? Sure, all three were technically on screen during the latter's cameo in Whip It, but for a much better indicator of the Page/Har Mar collaborative mystique, why don't you check out this unlikely video ode to Canada they debuted online this week? It references "Canadian Twilight" and lobs four-letter words at Celine Dion, and it's after the jump: »

Ellen Page is more than just a hipster tomboy today, she's also a soon to be writer and producer. Page has been tapped along with Alia Shawkat and Sean Tillman (otherwise known as Har Mar Superstar) to write a comedy for HBO called Stitch N' Bitch. The single camera show will follow two young hipster girls as they move from Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood to Los Angeles' Silver Lake with dreams of being artists. What sorts of artists you might ask? Apparently any. Page, Shawkat, »

Ellen Page's star has been on the rise ever since she landed the lead role in David Slade's Hard Candy, but clearly it was Juno that made her one of the most sought-after young actresses in Hollywood. Her name is now virtually synonymous with all that is hip and female, but should she be distancing herself from that image in order to avoid being typecast? She doesn't seem to think so, as she is now in the process of developing a new series for HBO called Stitch N' Bitch, about "two painfully cool hipster girls" who move from Brooklyn to L.A. in order to pursue careers as artists. The title of the show would seem to be a reference to the popular series of knitting books by Debbie Stoller, although it remains to be seen if the premise has anything to do with knitting at all.

The 22-year-old will team up with Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development) and Sean Tillmann on the single-camera comedy which will follow “two painfully cool hipster girls as they relocate from Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood to Los Angeles’ Silver Lake enclave in hopes of becoming artists – of any kind.”
All three will executive produce.
Though it remains a possibility that the three may star or make guest appearances, we have no official word on the cast nor a premiere date.

Oh, I can already see the responses to this one in my head. Ellen Page, Alia Shawkat and Sean Tillmann (the latter is Aka Har Mar Superstar) are writing and exec-producing a new show for HBO called Stitch N'Bitch. We don't know much about the project so far, but the trade write-ups indicate that it centers around a creature found inscrutable and frightening by much of the film blogging community: Hipsters. THR reports that the single-camera comedy show will follow " two painfully cool hipster girls as they relocate from Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood to Los Angeles' Silver Lake enclave in hopes of becoming artists -- of any kind." (Dancers are artists, right? Let's set an episode or two at Jumbo's Clown Room.) Based on that description, I'm guessing that one of the two girls is Stitch and the other Bitch.

· Whip It may have crashed and burned last weekend, but HBO isn't deterred from getting in the Ellen Page/Alia Shawkat business with the planned series Stitch N' Bitch. Their co-star Sean Tillman -- a/k/a briefs-rocking indie overlord Har Mar Superstar -- will join the ladies to write and produce the tale of two "painfully cool" hipster girls who flee from Williamsburg to Silver Lake in the pursuit of artistic happiness. All three principals may appear in the show from time to time, but expect a pair of new faces to be cast and, of course, summarily gotten over by the show's target audience before cameras even roll.

Ellen Page is only 22 years old and she already has an Oscar nomination, a hit movie, and now THR is reporting that she’ll be writing and producing a comedy on HBO with “Whip It” co-stars Alia Shawkat (20 years old) and Sean Tillmann (31 years old).

While you’re in the middle of your shame-washing, hit the jump to find out the details about the show.
The single-camera comedy they’re planning is called “Stitch N’ Bitch” about “two painfully cool hipster girls as they relocate from Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood to Los Angeles’ Silver Lake enclave in hopes of becoming artists — of any kind.” I »

Be your own hero. Or at least your own boss. Fresh on the wheels of the disappointing box office of Whip It, Ellen Page has just signed a deal to write and produce a comedy for HBO, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She will partner with actors Alia Shawkat and Sean Tillmann. It's unclear whether Page or her cohorts will star, but we'll put in our request now for a Diablo Cody and Drew Barrymore cameo. As befitting the Oscar-nominated star of Juno, Page's project Stitch N' Bitch is reportedly about the perils of hipsterism. The comedy concerns two artistically inclined young women who migrate from Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood all the way to »
