Oh, no big deal … it’s just the trailer for THE FINAL EPISODE OF MY FAVORITE TV SHOW EVER. Yes, chickadees, the last episode of the Brit-com that put Richard Ayoade, Chris O’Dowd and Katherine Parkinson on the map (in my heart, at least) is airing tonight in the UK on Channel 4.  Some Frisky…

DVD Cover For “The Sapphires” Puts Chris O’Dowd Front And Center, Aboriginal Women In The Background

“The Sapphires” is reportedly one of the very best films of the the year. It’s won all kinds of awards! But the DVD cover is … problematic. The flick stars Chris O’Dowd as the manager of a ’60s girl group in Australia comprised of four Aboriginal women, including “Australian Idol” runner-up Jessica Mauboy. Based o…

Chris O’Dowd Eats A Fly On TV (Well, Sort Of)

As you read this, PETA has a team of experts studying every micro-second of this video to see whether the fly died of natural causes or whether “Bridesmaids” actor Chris O’Dowd murdered the fly in a coldblooded act of dominant species callousness. One thing is for sure: “The Graham Norton Show” needs to buy some…

Chris O’Dowd Cracks A Date Rapey Joke About Getting His Wife Drunk Enough To Finger Her

Why, Chris O’Dowd, why? The “Bridesmaids” actor and his wife Dawn O’Porter, a writer/documentarian, are hands-down my favorite celebrity couple. Which is why I was bummed to see O’Dowd tweet what basically reads like a date rape joke. “Drop the hand” is Irish slang for fingering or groping someone, which means he tweeted that he…

We See Chick Flicks: “This Is 40″

Starring Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Maude Apatow, Iris Apatow, Jason Segel, Megan Fox, Chris O’Dowd, Albert Brooks and John Lithgow

Simply put, “This Is 40″ left a sour taste in my mouth. I felt like Judd Apatow did what he always does, which is write a plum role for his wife, and the…

Chris O’Dowd Stumbles Around Drunk, Adorably

Last night across the pond, Agent Provocateur co-hosted an event called Lingerie London in which a bunch of UK celebs walked down the catwalk in sexy lingerie for a microfinance charity called Seven Bar Foundation.

Paul Ryan: “War On Women” Like “War On Left-Handed Irishmen”

“Now it’s a war on women; tomorrow it’s going to be a war on left-handed Irishmen or something like that.”
— Republican Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan in Florida yesterday handily dismissed the so-called “war on women” (as a left-handed Irishmen would say) as bollocks. So I guess this means tomorrow every left-handed guy across Ireland…

Chris O’Dowd Stars In Bizarre, Objectifying Topless Trampoline Breast Cancer Awareness PSA

This breast cancer PSA raises awareness the same way that naked models for PETA raise awareness about veganism — which is to say, not at all, really.  It’s a shame that “Bridemaids”‘s Chris O’Dowd lent his talents to this spoof Coppafeel PSA for male breast cancer awareness because it’s really stupid.

If This Is What 40 Looks Like, I’ll Skip My 30s With Pleasure

Oh, Shirtless Paul Rudd. You are Shirtless Paul Rudd and you’re not even the best thing in this trailer. “This Is 40″ is the sort-of sequel to “Knocked Up,” about Paul and Debbie, the sister and brother-in-law of Katharine Heigl’s character. Now they’re 40 and feeling positively ancient. But they’re still got pot brownies, a…

“Friends With Kids”: An Ensemble Cast Movie That Does Not Look God Awful

Not only has she captured the heart of Jon Hamm, but she has also written and directed a romantic comedy with an ensemble cast and, you guys, you’re not going to slit your wrists while watching it. “Friends With Kids” comes out March 9 and…
