    Rashida Jones-Penned Script 'Celeste & Jesse' Resurrected, Andy Samberg To Co-Star

    'The Vicious Kind' Director Lee Toland Krieger At The HelmPresumably, Rashida Jones has some kind of flaw. You can't be bitten by Michael Jackson's pet monkey Bubbles as a child (as she was) and come out completely unscathed. But she certainly doesn't seem to demonstrate any: the Harvard-educated daughter of legendary music producer Quincy Jones has made it entirely on her own steam, thanks to being traffic-stoppingly beautiful and immensely talented, both comedically (recent episodes of the spectacularly good "Parks and Recreation," on which she's a regular, have seen her stretch her comic wings) and dramatically (see "Monogamy," where she's...

    Bill Hader Drops More Casting On 'The Hand Job' Starring Aubrey Plaza

    SNL Funnyman Says Andy Samberg, Alia Shawkat, Mae Whitman, Johnny Simmons, Donald Glover & More Will Star In Film Written By His WifeEXCLUSIVE: We haven't been shy in expressing our infatuation with comedic actress Aubrey Plaza. Though she doesn't have too many notches on her belt, her turns in "Funny People," "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" and "Parks and Recreation" are extremely impressive, displaying a young talent with a knack for comedic timing and wit. Whether it's keeping up with Seth Rogen's deadpan, dry deliveries in Judd Apatow's last picture or actively (and abrasively) berating Michael Cera in Edgar Wright's underrated gem, Plaza d...

    Adam Sandler To Play Andy Samberg's Father In 'I Hate You Dad'

    You can say one thing about Adam Sandler -- he looks out after his own kind. Professional relationships between performers who once appeared on "Saturday Night Live" have always bordered on incestuous, but Sandler has pretty much turned it into the basis for his super successful Happy Madison banner...

    Johnny Knoxville & Andy Samberg Shortlisted For Farrelly Brothers' 'Three Stooges'

    Considering it's supposed to start shooting in about two months, getting a cast together for the long gestating big screen version of "The Three Stooges" might be good idea. By now, its history has been told and re-told, but in short, at one point the project had a trio of high profile stars attached with Sean Penn as Larry, Jim Carrey as Curly and Benicio del Toro as Moe. Alas, the project was set up at MGM whose financial woes are old news by this point, and was eventually moved over to 20th Century Fox where it was given a clean slate and fast tracked with a March 14, 2011 start date penciled in. Well, it looks like the Farrelly Brothers a...
