Nic Rouleau couldn’t get a ticket to The Book of Mormon.
Like the stories you’ve no doubt heard about the wildly popular, box office-busting Broadway show, tickets are one of New York’s hottest commodities, and they have been since the record-breaking musical opened just three years ago. So Rouleau turned to the show’s daily lottery system — about 2 dozen tickets offered raffle-style to eager patrons, 98 percent of whom will leave disappointed — and lucked his way into the Eugene O’Neill Theatre that way.

The most famous ladies in comedy, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, are reuniting for Universal’s The Nest. Fey has been attached to the project for quite some time now, as one half of a pair of sisters who, after learning their family home is to be put up for sale, decide to spend one last weekend there. Poehler is now confirmed as joining the cast, and we can only hope it’s as Fey’s sister.
Despite a long working relationship with each on hit Us comedy show SNL (Saturday Night Live), the pair have only really starred in one motion-picture together as the leads. That was 2008′s Baby Mama. The pair both appeared in Mean Girls, but never shared a scene, and both had uncredited cameos in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Most recently the pair co-hosted The Golden Globes.

Earlier this year, Fey and Poehler, whose "Parks and Recreation" on NBC was recently renewed for a seventh season, stole the show as hosts of the Golden Globes once again, drawing the show's biggest audience in a decade.
