Maya Rudolph & Danny McBride’s Awkward Family Photo Album

Comedians Maya Rudolph and Danny McBride posed for a series of awkward family photos for GQ. The safari family and the goths are my two favorites, but as you can imagine, they’re all pretty ridiculous. The most awkward part of it all, according to McBride, was the casting announcement for their fake children.

“One of my friends sent me some [casting-call] link that said, ‘Looking for Maya Rudolph and Danny McBride look-alikes as children,’ and they were like, ‘What the fuck is this?’ It said something about fuzz on their faces being a plus.” [GQ]

Maya Rudolph Kills It On “Saturday Night Live,” Justin Timberlake Nails Bon Iver Impression

Watch Video

Look, I am not one of those people who is nostalgic for the good ol’ days of “Saturday Night Live,” when the Coneheads and Pat were making everyone laugh. No, I like “SNL” now. But that doesn’t mean it always cracks me up. Usually I watch the show on Sunday mornings, with my coffee and New York Post, and I smile and maybe a giggle or two pops out. But when Maya Rudolph hosted the show this weekend — featuring special guests Amy Poehler and Justin Timberlake — I cracked the hell up. 

Above, Blue Ivy Carter meets Prince, Taylor Swift, Brangelina, and Bon Iver, portrayed perfectly by Timberlake. And after the jump, more sketches I loved. Keep reading »

How To Play The “Bridesmaids” Martin Scorcese Drinking Game

I found last night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards to be terribly dull, aside from learning the rules behind Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, and Melissa McCarthy’s fun drinking game. So, here’s how it works: every time someone says Martin Scorcese’s name (so, you know, often), take a drink! Scorcese! Scorcese! I’m drunk!

Jennifer Westfeldt is some kind of voodoo witch doctor sorcerer. 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 stars Jennifer, her manpiece, Kristen Wiig (!), Maya Rudolph (!), Chris O’Dowd (!!!!!), Adam Scott (!), and Edward Burns (!!!!!). That’s like half of the “Bridesmaids” crew, which is why it actually looks funny. Goddamn, woman. How did you keep Katharine Heigl from being cast in this? Burning crosses and heads on stakes?  [YouTube]

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 »

“Bridesmaids” Stars Kristen Wiig And Maya Rudolph Can’t Stop Talking About Farting On French TV


There is so much to love about about this French TV interview with “Bridesmaids”‘ stars Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph. For starters, “Bridesmaids” is called a raunchy comedy, which apparently translates to “les comedies pee-pee, ca-ca coo” or something in French. And then somehow the interview devolves into a discussion about possible film plots in which farting is the main premise, because the interviewer, apparently, would watch an entire film about passing wind. So much for the French being highbrow. Seriously, this interview is so strange and hilarious, I am going to stop trying to explain it and just encourage you to watch and laugh. Keep reading »

Maya Rudolph Says She’s Been Pregnant For Six Years

“I think I’m 25 months pregnant. [I'm due in] two more months … in dog years, so that’s 25. Honestly, because it’s my third, I feel like I’ve been pregnant for like six years, seriously … [A homebirth] was not my plan, but that’s what happened because the baby came out really fast. Luckily, she just kind of glided into her father’s arms.”

Maya Rudolph talks to Chelsea Handler about how she feels during her third pregnancy. Wow, I had no idea that her second baby was born at home and that her hubby, director Paul Thomas Anderson, did the delivering. I have a feeling we’ll be seeing that scene in one of his movies soon. [People] Keep reading »

“Bridesmaids” Kicks Ass And Takes Names At The Box Office

We can do it, ladies! The Kristen Wiig/Maya Rudolph comedy “Bridesmaids” blew the roof off all expectations, raking in $24.4 million at the box office on opening weekend — the most important barometer in all of Hollywood. While “Thor” came in #1 at the box office this weekend, “Bridesmaids” followed at #2. People who care about lady-issues, such as why only a handful of women are prominent in comedy and why movies with all-female casts are often denigrated as “chick flicks,” were waiting with bated breath to see if “Bridesmaids” succeeded. The fact that it did — and that everyone agrees it’s smart and uproariously funny — sends a signal to studios to invest in more female-led comedies. According to TheWrap.com, Universal Studios predicted “Bridesmaids” would only rake in dough in the low teens. Wrong! Maybe we could stop wondering if women are funny now? [The Wrap] Keep reading »
