"Find A Gentleman That'll Intercourse The Cramps Out"

David Cross is a convincingly scary paternalistic gynotician — aka a politician masquerading as an OB-GYN qualified to make reproductive health decisions. He’s got a BA from Todd Akin Non-Technical Institute in Biological-ish Studies In Rhetoric with a minor in Online Poker. Also, at the end of the video it credits them as Amber and David Tamblyn. Did he take her last name when they married? LOVE. [YouTube]

Looking over Julia Stiles’ IMDB page is a reminder she’s more than just the woman we know and love from “10 Things I Hate About You.” Yeah, that movie was my everything during high school and college. But she’s had a looooong career doing different movies and TV. Whether you fell for her in “Dexter,” “Silver Linings Playbook” or “Save The Last Dance,” you have to agree Julia is a solid actress.

In her latest dark comedy, “It’s A Disaster,” Julia stars as Tracy, a woman who goes on her third date with Glen (played by David Cross) to brunch with all her coupled friends. More specifically, friends who are couples who are fighting. If that’s not an awkward enough premise for newcomer Glen, very quickly into the film there comes news that a national disaster is afoot. The phone lines go out, the windowframes all get taped up, and it’s time to start heavily drinking and/or air old grievances. It is a disaster in more ways than one … but it’s very funny.

I talked with Julia about the end of the world and the hazards of brunch and along the way learned she has a secret love of Spanish language television, including the Spanish version of “Judge Judy.” Who knew?!

Our Q&A, after the jump!

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 »
