This morning brought the nominations for the 67th Emmy Awards, and while the winners (and losers) won’t be revealed until September 20th on Fox, the nominations themselves are enough to stir up some conversation.

The new trailer for NBC’s Parks and Recreation comes from the future, and we don’t mean January 2015 when the seventh and final season kicks off. We mean the year 2017, a strange time when Tom Haverford is a mogul and Gary is called Terry. Watch the Parks and Recreation final season trailer after the jump. Read More »
The career of Werner Herzog is an endlessly wonderful thing. The director has crafted a rich filmography bursting with documentary and dramatic films. His voice and manner of speaking are approaching iconic status. His statements about work and life are rich, surprising, and entertaining. And every once in a while he shows up in someone else’s project. He played the villain in Jack Reacher (above) and now he has shot a cameo for Parks and Recreation.
Wait, what? Read the details below. 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.

Hit the jump to find out when they’ll make their last appearances.

Star Wars Episode VII already has a writer in Michael Arndt, but on this week’s Parks & Recreation Patton Oswalt will make a good case for ditching Arndt and turning the scripting duties over to him instead.
In the episode, the comedian-writer plays a Pawnee citizen attempting to filibuster a city council vote. To fill the time, he improvises an epic eight-minute speech outlining exactly what he thinks Star Wars Episode VII should be. Somehow we can’t really imagine Ardnt and JJ Abrams signing off on the idea of a robot-spider-bodied Chewbacca, but until the movie comes out we can dream. Watch the full video after the jump.
