When I see a photo of Abel Arnett, the adorrrrrable son of Amy Poehler and Will Arnett, all I can think of is that scene from “So I Married An Axe Murderer,” where Mike Myers plays the old Scottish dad. “I’m not kidding, it’s like an orange on a toothpick. That’s a huge noggin. That’s a virtual planetoid. Has it’s own weather system. Heeeeed, moooooooooove! I’m not kidding, that boy’s head is like Sputnik; spherical but quite pointy at parts!” I don’t mean this in a negative way of course; Abel is just a big ol’ ginger Benjamin Button baby and I LOVE HIM SO MUCH.

Abel Arnett: My New Favorite Celebrity Baby!

Meet Abel Arnett, the young son of Amy Poehler and Will Arnett. I am totally in love with his chubby little belly and fat little hands and swirl of ginger hair. He’s like a little old Irish man in a baby’s body, like a Benjamin O’Button. Ugh, my ovaries can’t handle it.

Is “Up All Night” The Most Feminist New Show On Television?

Culturista
Your guide to the week of 9/26/11! Read More »

It’s a good time to be a woman holding the remote: We are supposedly in a renaissance of women producing, writing and starring in their own TV shows. There’s “Whitney,” produced by and starring comic Whitney Cummings; there’s “Two Broke Girls,” written and produced by Cummings and starring the amazing Kat Dennings; “Pan Am,” starring Christina Ricci; “Ringer,” starring Sarah Michelle Beller; “Hart Of Dixie,” starring Rachel Bilson; and “New Girl,” starring everyone’s favorite manic pixie dream girl, Zooey Deschanel. We’re told (by people who financially benefit from us watching “The Playboy Club“) that “The Playboy Club” is another win for feminism.

I’ve watched nearly all of the shows that debuted last week and enjoyed a couple of them. I suppose it was naive for me to think I’d love them all just because I’m a chick and, oh hey, Zooey Deschanel is a chick, too! I don’t mean to be a hater; it’s just that none of these comedies approach the cable TV raunchiness I’ve come to love from my beloved “Chelsea Lately.” Plus, I am skeptical that a bunch of TV shows starring gorgeous, skinny white women will be really that transgressive. Alas, there is one new show that seems more realistic than, say, Zooey Deschanel being single for longer than 36 seconds. It’s “Up All Night,” the new comedy on NBC starring Christina Applegate, Maya Rudolph and Will Arnett (aka Mr. Amy Poehler). It’s funny, it’s original, and I think it might just be the most feminist new show on television right now. Keep reading »

Awesome Show Alert: “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret,” Now With Jon Hamm


I, like many of you out there, am a big Hamm fan. No, not the meat—the person, as in I’d have me a Jon Hamm sandwich anytime. So I am very excited that he is adding a new television show to his docket in addition to “Mad Men.” Hamm will be a guest star on IFC’s “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret.” And this is a show I didn’t think could get any better. It’s written by the hilarious David Cross. In it, he stars as Todd Margaret, a shlub who works in a mailroom, until he somehow charms his company’s CEO—played by Will Arnett—and is made the senior sales exec in the UK for a Red Bull knockoff called Thunder Muscle. One last selling point—the music is from Johnny Marr of The Smiths. Yep, I need to watch. The first season will air on IFC in October—it’s only six episodes—and will soon be followed by season two in January, when Jon Hamm enters the picture. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Will Arnett Loves Playing Bleepholes

“There’s nothing less interesting than a nice guy … sure, he might be great to marry and have kids with, but in terms of entertainment value, who gives a [bleep]? I enjoy playing characters who are damaged and kind of, well, [bleep]holes.”

Will Arnett in Maxim on his new role on “Running Wilde.” I’m glad he’s playing another damaged jerkface. I still miss Gob Bluth, though. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Celebrities Love Reading Kids Books

Although Will Arnett may have ruined “Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret” forever during an episode of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” he’s not the first celebrity to give his own rendering of a literary work for tots. From creepy to endearing, celebrities have been reading children’s books and nursery rhymes since long before Arnett butchered the Judy Blume line, “I’ve got a bra now, it’d be nice if I had something to put in it.” Here are our favorite clips, after the jump… Keep reading »
