At one point in 2001’s Wet Hot American Summer, the counselors of Camp Firewood make an earnest promise to reunite at in exactly one decade. Well, it looks like they’ve missed the mark by a few years, but better late than never, right?
Netflix is officially moving forward with the Wet Hot American Summer TV series first teased last year. Shooting is already underway with much of the original cast, including a few names who are much bigger now than they were then. More on the Wet Hot American Summer Netflix show after the jump.

Most Pixar movies are emotional experiences, in that they inspire what the kids used to call “all the feels.” But their next film Inside Out is an emotional experience in a more literal sense, as it delves into the mind of an 11-year-old named Riley.
Living within are five primary emotions that drive her: Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Fear (Bill Hader), and Anger (Lewis Black). Get to know all of them as Pixar begins to release new Inside Out character posters. (We’ll update this post as more posters arrive.) Read More »

Just because something is fun to watch doesn’t mean it was fun to make, as gossip rags are all too happy to tell you. But there’s something about NBC’s Parks and Recreation that makes us think this cast might actually be as delightful on set as they are on screen. Now, the Parks and Recreation Season 6 gag reel confirms those suspicions.
In the ten-minute video, Amy Poehler, Adam Scott, Chris Pratt, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza and more take turns messing up, teasing each other, and just generally look like they’re having a good time. Plus, you get to see Ann and Chris again, and even Lil’ Sebastian stops by for an appearance. Watch the Parks and Recreation Season 6 gag reel after the jump.

Amy Poehler and Ed Helms were on the same NBC Thursday night comedy block for five seasons, but somehow they’ve never actually appeared onscreen together until David Wain‘s They Came Together.
The latest clip from the romcom parody features Poehler as a quirky candy shop owner, and Helms as the accountant who has the hots for her. Obviously, any romance between them is doomed to fail since he’s not the one whose face is on the poster. (Paul Rudd is.) But don’t let that stop you from enjoying the supremely awkward way he makes his move. Watch the latest They Came Together clip after the jump.

This year’s most star-studded, cliche-filled romcom isn’t based on a self-help book, built around a holiday, or directed by Garry Marshall. It’s They Came Together by David Wain, director of Wet Hot American Summer. Which, of course, means those cliches aren’t exactly being played straight.
Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler play two New Yorkers who meet cute, You’ve Got Mail-style. She’s the owner of a small candy store; he’s the corporate exec of a big chain that wants to buy her out. Despite their differences, they fall in love.
Among the people who help and hinder the couple along the way are Christopher Meloni, Ken Marino, Bill Hader, Ellie Kemper, Ed Helms, Kenan Thompson, Michael Ian Black, Melanie Lynskey, Jason Mantzoukas, Jack McBrayer, Cobie Smulders, Max Greenfield… and those are just the ones who make appearances in the trailer. Watch the They Came Together trailer after the jump. Read More »

Thirteen years after Wet Hot American Summer, David Wain is getting the Camp Firewood gang back together. Well, some of them, anyway. And in completely different roles. In a totally different setting.
Okay, so They Came Together isn’t really a Wet Hot American Summer sequel at all. Instead, it’s a parodic take on the You’ve Got Mail formula. But with Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Michael Ian Black, Ken Marino, and Christopher Meloni all lined up for roles, it looks like the next best thing.
Check out the first clip, featuring Rudd, Poehler, Max Greenfield (New Girl) and Teyonah Parris (Mad Men) after the jump.

Everyone knows Louis C.K. as a brilliant comedian. Fewer people know him as a talented director. C.K. had been in the entertainment industry for decades before finally hitting the mainstream with his amazing stand-up and his FX TV show Louie. He wrote on several popular TV shows and directed short films for a long time, culminating in the 2001 cult film Pootie Tang.
In 1998 C.K. wrote and directed his first film called Tomorrow Night, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. It starred then-newcomers Steve Carell, Amy Poehler, JB Smoove, Wanda Sykes and many others, but didn’t get picked up for distribution. This February, C.K. is finally going to release the film on his official website, for $5. Read more and check out the trailer below. Read More »
