“This was definitely a hard decision for me,” Leakes tells the site. “Me and my husband [Gregg Leakes] have been going back and forth on it for weeks now. But my contract is up and I just think this is the right time. This is my opportunity to spread my wings and do different things.”

Chicago – Adam Scott has become familiar to audiences through his five year run as Ben Wyatt on TV’s “Parks and Recreation,” but he is also creating a presence on the big screen, with various supporting roles in big films (“The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”) and his latest comedy, “The Overnight.”
“The Overnight” is an exaggerated and very funny truth story about marriage, sexuality and understanding the relationship to one’s self. Two couples, portrayed by Adam Scott, Taylor Schilling, Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godréche, start with a simple planned dinner party, and that gathering devolves into a substance-fueled debauchery which lasts through the night. Each individual learns a bit about themselves during the events, and Adam Scott’s character is particularly willing to participate in that change.

Voting closed for Emmy nominations on Friday. Ordinarily, I would have already completed my usual If I Had An Emmy Ballot exercise by now, but various other projects got in the way, which means what I'm about to post is even more hypothetical than usual, since it's after the voting deadline. As always, I'm working with the choices listed on the actual Emmy ballots, which means I have to go along with where various shows and actors were categorized and submitted. So I have to consider "Orange Is the New Black" a drama, have to consider Key and Peele supporting actors on their own show, and can't go off the ballot to try nominating an actor like Max Greenfield from "New Girl," who didn't even put his name up for submission. Also, while I've done these as a bunch of separate posts the last few years, this thing's already so »

Over the television year, not only do specific shows and specific seasons stand out, but so do specific episodes. Certain episodes rise above the rest of the television landscape in a variety of ways, whether it’s due to excellent direction, strong character exploration, or something else entirely. For the past few years, Sound on Sight TV has highlighted these standout episodes, both at the midpoint of the year and again in December, and thanks to its sheer quantity of fantastic television, 2015 brings our most extensive list yet. Presented below are the best episodes from the first half of the year (January through the end of May), as curated by a panel at Sound on Sight consisting of Editor in Chief Ricky D, TV Editor Kate Kulzick, Managing TV Editor Deepayan Sengupta, and TV contributors Simon Howell, Sean Colletti, Randy Dankievitch, and Whitney McIntosh.

"Parks and Recreation" is a factory of endlessly quotable lines, and no one delivers those lines quite like April Ludgate (aka Aubrey Plaza). Her uber-dry wit, deadpan delivery, and severe honesty are all to be admired (you know you wish you could be her). So here, then, are some of the best quotes, memorable moments, and death stares ever gifted to the world by Mrs. Andy Dwyer.

Make no mistake, writer/director Patrick Bryce’s The Overnight is one of the weirdest comedies I’ve seen in a while. It has a simple premise—a married couple (played by Adam Scott and Taylor Schilling) has recently moved to a new town and is looking for a playmate for their young son. They come across another couple (Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godrèche) who seem warm and inviting, but a simple dinner between the two families becomes much more awkward as the evening winds on. Trust me, the conversations and events that transpire are not the regular things you see in “Hollywood” movies and you will definitely be talking about the film after it ends. For more on The Overnight, watch the green or red band trailers. At the recent Los Angeles press day I landed an extended video interview with Adam Scott. Since I spoke to him about The Overnight in this interview, »

If you turn on the television and politician running for office says this sentence right to the camera: "I'm gonna use my glock to blow your balls off," while holding said gun, you're either in an episode of Parks and Recreation that's mocking campaign videos or you are witnessing one of the strangest local campaign ads of all time. Fortunately, these are all very, disturbingly real and Daily Motion put together a video of the best of the worst. Again, these are all actual campaign ads that politicians purposely made/thought were great ideas and allowed them to be seen by other people. This video has them all: a U.S. Senator talking about castrating pigs in her very first second of »
Good looks must run in Rob Lowe's family! The "West Wing" alum hit the gym on Tuesday and showed off his sweaty hard work with a very special workout buddy, his 20-year-old son. "Generational #Fitness with @johnnylowe #Essential #Results #ForeverYoung #Profile4Men," he captioned the Instagram shot. In the photo, the hunky actor goes shirtless as he snaps a selfie next to his equally good looking offspring, John Lowe. Talk about some great genes! The 51-year-old's son with wife Sheryl Berkoff definitely bears a striking resemblance to his dad in his younger years. Not only did he inherit his great hair, but he also has those same dreamy eyes! Not much better than limiting with my boy.

The SNL vets were inspired to dust off their tag-team rant by Sports Illustrated writer Andy Benoit, who stirred a tempest this week when he tweeted that “women’s sports in general” are “not worth watching.” Benoit has since apologized for his outburst, but that didn’t stop Poehler and Meyers from having a little fun at his expense.

Each year, the program at the Sundance Film Festival includes dozens of short films from both established names in the film world and and up-and-coming directors. Now, on a new website, Sundance has hand-picked a selection of those shorts and offered them for free. The film festival has launched Shorts on SundanceTV, where the best films from previous years are available through a simply-designed portal.
The site’s main attraction is a library of short films curated by Sundance programmer Michael Plante. Plante’s choices are filled with notable names. For example, I’m A Mitzvah, which first premiered during the 2014 edition of Sundance, stars actor Ben Schwartz of Parks and Rec fame. And Una Hora Por Favora, from 2012, is directed by Transparent’s Jill Soloway.
For movie buffs who crave work from relative unknowns, a selection of “Contest Shorts” spotlights lesser-known filmmakers from around the world. Still photos from individual shorts are also available. »

Ricky Church on the future of Hannibal…
On Monday NBC broke many hearts as they announced they were cancelling Hannibal once its current season wraps up. While it is very disappointing, it’s certainly not surprising given the fact Hannibal has always struggled for ratings due to its late time slot and often changing place in the schedule. That doesn’t make it any less unfortunate for fans, but one could say the writing has been on the wall for a long time now. With Season 3 giving Hannibal its lowest ratings yet, NBC finally gave it the axe.
One of the reasons Hannibal lasted so long at NBC was because it’s an international co-production between companies, giving NBC a low-cost risk when they renewed the series for its second and third seasons since they didn’t fully finance the show. Now that NBC has cancelled it, there are several »

In The Overnight, La eccentrics Kurt and Charlotte (Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godrèche) play host to recent arrivals Alex and Emily (Adam Scott and Taylor Schilling, above) for an evening neither couple will likely forget. The second feature from writer/director Patrick Brice, The Overnight, which marked its premier at Sundance, emerges as a funny, risqué and raw take on thirty-something sexual frustration and parenthood.
We met with Brice and Naomi Scott (wife of Adam Scott, who produced the film in conjunction with the Duplass Brothers), at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles.
Thn: Tell us – what was the genesis of The Overnight?
Patrick Brice: I had made this other film, Creep, with Mark Duplass and we wanted to work together again. And so he basically said, if you write a script, I’ll produce it for you. I wrote it and we took it to »

Camp Firewood’s marketing team has really outdone itself this time: Witness the new trailer for Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer series in all its VHS glory.
The streaming video service has released a first real look at the 8-episode comedy Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, which brings us the opening of the camp that was made famous in the 2001 cult flick.
Adam Scott’s memorable turn as Parks and Recreation’s Ben Wyatt will in no way prepare his fans for The Overnight.
