    Rashida Jones & Olivia Colman Feel The 'Cuban Fury'; Jackie Robinson Biopic '42' Adds John C. McGinley & More

    One of the biggest compliments one could give to the Apatow-era of comedy is the development of talent, often very young and unheralded, from all around the world. Take, for instance, the international ensemble for "Bridesmaids" which featured Americans (Melissa McCarthy, Ellie Kemper), Br...

    Sundance: Rashida Jones & Will McCormack Discuss Subverting The Rom-Com In 'Celeste and Jesse Forever' & Next Project 'Frenemy Of The State'

    If you're an actor, and not getting the kind of roles you want (or indeed, any roles at all), the best way out is to create your own material. From Matt Damon and Ben Affleck to Brit Marling, legions of actors over the years have turned screenwriters, and seen their careers skyrocket as a result. An...

    The Muppets—movie review

    On my way to see this movie I kept saying to myself, “I hope they didn’t louse it up!” The Muppets mean too much to me to let Jason Segel, or anybody, for that matter, diminish them. The minute the picture started, I heaved a sigh of relief and broke out in a smile. This is a joyfu...

    Paul Rudd Is A Smiley Moron In First Poster For 'Our Idiot Brother'

    Even though the film received respectful, rather than rave, reviews on its Sundance bow (our own review was one of the more positive), you can't cast Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Rashida Jones, Steve Coogan, Hugh Dancy, T.J. Miller, Adam Scott and Kathryn Hahn in a co...

    Elijah Wood Latest To Join Rashida Jones/Andy Samberg Rom-Com 'Celeste And Jesse Forever'

    The cast members of "The Lord of the Rings" have had mixed success in the eight years since the franchise wrapped up. Viggo Mortensen and Orlando Bloom became fully-fledged movie stars (the latter less so in recent years), and Dominic Monaghan managed surprising longevity as a star of "Lost," but Se...

    Emma Roberts, Ari Graynor & Chris Messina Join Rashida Jones' 'Celeste And Jesse Forever'

    Rashida Jones' rise in the comedy world after debuting on "The Office" a few years ago is definitely commendable. The daughter of music legend Quincy Jones (we're sure she loves hearing that) is a regular on NBC's "Parks And Recreation," has already starred in "I Love You, Man" and will soon be seen...

    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...
