This Is What Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Schumer, and Aziz Ansari Did Over the Weekend

12 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Jennifer Lawrence stepped out to walk her dog in Atlanta on Sunday with her funny pals Amy Schumer and Aziz Ansari and Amy's sister, Kim. The foursome kept things casual in sweatpants and t-shirts.

Aziz Ansari, Amy Schumer, Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Pratt Are Our New #SquadGoals

13 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

No offense to Taylor Swift's gal (and guy) pals, but a new foursome is giving Swifty some fierce competition in the #squadgoals department.

Aziz Ansari, Amy Schumer, Jennifer Lawrence, and Chris Pratt all hung out together this weekend in Atlanta, and to our great disappointment, we weren't invited. But thanks to the power of social media, we can (digitally) join in on their fun.

Ansari posted a video to Instagram (or a "short film," if you will) in which he swings on a swing while his "Parks and Rec" costar Pratt stands nearby, giving his best blue steel. The quick clip, entitled "hi guys" (we're guessing because that's what Ansari shouts as he swings back and forth), also has some major star power behind the scenes, according to Ansari: Lawrence directed, Schumer served as director of photography, and Ansari, Pratt, Schumer, and Schumer's sister and writing partner, Kim Caramele, »

Parks And Recreation: 15 Incredibly Subtle Jokes And Easter Eggs You Probably Missed

16 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


If you were devastated when Parks and Recreation went off the air, here’s some good news: there’s still plenty left to explore in Pawnee. Sure you may have seen every episode, but dozens of subtle jokes and Easter eggs remain that likely went over your head the first time around.

After all, this was the kind of show where the joke might be a character’s understated reaction, something weird happening in the background, or even the shirt a person’s wearing. Every time you watch, there’s something new to laugh at. 

As with these 15 gags, though, sometimes the joke is just so damn subtle, you could see an episode a million times without ever picking up on it. 

15. April Steals A Skeleton From Ann’s House


April Ludgate loves Halloween and hates Ann, and that’s clear going back to this background gag from the Season 2 episode Greg Pikitis. »

Marvel Seeking Damage Control For The McU

19 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


It’s already somewhat wrong to call Marvel’s slate of projects the McU if you’re taking “cinematic” to mean of the cinema. Daredevil, Agent Carter and Agents Of Shield are both linked entirely to the main movie timeline, so they’re legitimately part of that banner. And it would seem that Marvel intend to further boost their small screen presence.

The latest revelation states that ABC – who house both Agent Carter and Shield – are developing a show based on Damage Control.

It’s a particularly pertinent decision right now, since everything in the McU seems to be shaped by the idea of collateral damage, rather than normal people thanking superheroes for not allowing them to be killed horribly. Apparently, the tax bills and human cost of saving them is so great that they want regulation and accountability.

Because nothing says excitement like legislation and bureaucracy, as Prequel »

Marvel Calls Up Damage Control

3 October 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

What was rumoured a while ago has now emerged blinking into the bright light of reality: Us network ABC, home to Marvel series Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter, is developing a new companion show based on the comic book company’s title Damage Control.Originally published in 1989 the comic follows the power-free duties of the team who are tasked with cleaning up after super-suited types have finished doing battle or otherwise interacting: there are lost ray guns to return to rightful owners, weddings to re-schedule after the intended venue has been vaporised and even the odd parrot to be tracked down when it has been turned to stone. Given the crowded nature of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has been known to crossover with the TV side of things, we can expect them to be busy.Unlike S.H.I.E.L.D. and Carter or any of the Netflix shows, »

Jessica Alba Prank Calls The Honest Company With James Corden and Ben Schwartz—Watch Now!

2 October 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Everyone loves a good prank call, except maybe the person on the receiving end of it. After learning that Jessica Alba's company, The Honest Company, accepts ideas on their customer service line Thursday, James Corden and Ben Schwartz decided they needed to take advantage of the opportunity—with the founder herself—on The Late Late Show. But when Corden pulled out a phone for them to dial the number, the Parks and Recreation alum couldn't believe what they were working with. "To be fair, do you have an older phone we could use, or that one's fine?" he asked, while gesturing as if he had an old rotary phone. "This is one of the most modern things in CBS Television »

Rob Lowe, Lena Dunham Lead Parade of Hollywood Motor Mouths: Wrap Trends (Video)

1 October 2015 12:25 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The Grinder” star Rob Lowe stuck his foot in his mouth in a recent interview in which he griped about the objectification of men on TV. While discussing his new Fox comedy, which has Lowe playing a retired actor, the former “Parks and Recreation” star said that one of the reasons he loves the show is because of its “insightful” looks at the entertainment industry, specifically the way shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” objectify men. “People go on and on about the objectification of women, and rightly so,” the actor said, “but what about the objectification of men? When was the last time. »

Watch Aubrey Plaza Try to Ask Out Natasha Lyonne

1 October 2015 12:21 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For years, it’s fallen to Natasha Lyonne and Aubrey Plaza to give deadpan ballast to two of your favorite comedies (Orange Is the New Black and Parks and Recreation, respectively), so you’ve got to hand it to director Jamie Babbit for thinking to pair these two scene-stealers romantically in her new movie Addicted to Fresno. At least romance is what Plaza has on her mind in this exclusive scene, where she attempts to hit on an oblivious Lyonne to no avail. (To be fair, Lyonne has somewhat bigger fish to fry in this movie: Her sister Judy Greer has accidentally killed someone, and the two siblings are trying desperately to cover it up.) Will the two of them find love in Fresno, which comes out tomorrow in theaters (and is currently on demand and on iTunes)? At the very least, they can bond over a similar comic wavelength. »

You, Me and the Apocalypse: Is Sky1's ambitious sitcom a dystopian delight?

30 September 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It's the end of the world, but you'd imagine Sky1 is feeling fine, having partnered with NBC for a new big-budget comedy drama.

You, Me and the Apocalypse brings together the best of UK and Us comic talent - from Britain, there's The Wrong Mans star Mathew Baynton and Peep Show's Paterson Joseph, while Parks and Rec legend Rob Lowe and The Office actress Jenna Fischer are among the American stars.

Strong pedigree - but did the end product live up to the hype? Was it a hellish experience, or a dystopian delight?

Digital Spy wants your thoughts on You, Me and the Apocalypse - here to stay, or (like the Earth, potentially) gone tomorrow?

Billy Eichner on the joy of screaming at Michelle Obama: 'I didn't pull back'

30 September 2015 1:41 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Billy Eichner has spent years terrifying and rewarding pedestrians on "Billy on the Street," which premieres its fourth season October 8 on TruTV. The gonzo game show sees Eichner approaching strangers in New York City with a microphone, forcing them to play pop culture-related games, and giving them minuscule amounts of money for their trouble. Occasionally he brings along celebrity guests like Will Ferrell, Amy Poehler (his costar on "Parks and Recreation"), Paul Rudd, Neil Patrick Harris, Lena Dunham, and -- during one incredible moment -- Michelle Obama and Big Bird. It's a show where anything can happen, but it usually boils down to intense yelling. We caught up with Eichner to discuss bringing on Tina Fey for the fourth season premiere, the art of mocking celebrities on Twitter, and whether his character on the Hulu series "Difficult People," created by his costar and frequent collaborator Julie Klausner, is basically just him with a different name. »

Rob Lowe Speaks Out Against Objectifying Men on Television: "When Was the Last Time You Saw Grey's Anatomy?"

30 September 2015 1:25 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Emma Watson isn't the only one speaking out against sexism in Hollywood.  Rob Lowe is lashing out against the objectification of men on television, according to a new interview with Vulture. The 51-year-old star of Fox's new comedy series, The Grinder, spoke candidly about how he feels male characters are poorly written on TV—all while calling out a Shonda Rhimes favorite.  "People go on and on about the objectification of women, and rightly so," Lowe began. "But, what about the objectification of men? When was the last time you saw Grey's Anatomy?" The Parks and Recreation actor, who has played his fair share of quintessential »

The Grinder Series Premiere Recap: Thanks for Watching

29 September 2015 8:29 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In a network fall that’s once again loaded with indifferent, focus-grouped comedies that seem to have been conceived and made in an entirely different dimension from the likes of Broad City, Louie, and Veep, the first installment of The Grinder isn’t a groundbreaking entry, but it at least shows some signs of life. It snapped up Parks and Recreation’s freshly liberated Rob Lowe, who brings back some of the jazz-hands-concealing-clawing-pain act he deployed so avidly in his portrayal of Chris Traeger. But it’s also brought Fred Savage back to the other side of the camera, after more than a decade as the go-to director for the likes of Party Down, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Garfunkel and Oates, among other entries with a bit more edge than those who’ve tuned him out since The Wonder Years cut bait more than two decades ago might be used to. »

Watch Rob Lowe Literally Channel Parks and Recreation’s Chris Traeger on The Tonight Show

29 September 2015 1:20 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

If you’re like me, you miss Parks and Recreation pretty much every day and find yourself re-watching episodes on Netflix, or getting super excited when you catch reruns on Fxx or Esquire. Thankfully, Rob Lowe understands how just how we Parks and Rec fans feel, as he channeled Chris Traeger last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Lowe actually transformed into his infamous Parks and Recreation character again while discussing his new series The Grinder (which costars Fred Savage and debuts on Fox tonight at 8:30 p.m.). After mentioning the beloved NBC series (and taking a moment to pause as the crowd erupted into cheers), Lowe explained that he wanted the show that he followed up Parks and Recreation with to be just as funny and entertaining. “People love [Parks and Rec] so much I really felt like I owed it to those fans if I did another comedy »

Rob Lowe Grindr Profiles Through the Years

29 September 2015 11:27 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The ageless Rob Lowe returns to television Tuesday night for the series premiere of Fox's energetic and winking new show The Grinder, where he plays an actor who wants to become a lawyer because he's played one on TV. Of course, the title has gotten a lot of people (okay, gays) wondering: Is this a thinly veiled reference to the location-based gay hookup app that changed the landscape of contemporary courtship as we know it? (The network has certainly been milking the idea by adding the tagline "There's no one he can't get off" onto the posters for its advertising campaign.) Vulture decided to take the opportunity to present our own meta-reality of Rob Lowe's Grindr profiles spanning time and reality — from real-life Dad Rob Lowe to his character Chris Traeger on Parks and Recreation. Sup, bruh. Nice, um, abs. »
