Amy Schumer Reveals Why She Turned Down Chance To Host 'The Daily Show'


Amy Schumer Jon Stewart Amy Poehler Chris Rock

Comedian Amy Schumer has revealed she was one of the names asked to replace Jon Stewart as host of 'The Daily Show', after he announced he was stepping down later this year. The gig of course eventually went to South African comedian and ‘Daily Show’ regular, Trevor Noah, but just what was it that made the ‘Inside Amy Schumer’ star say no to Comedy Central’s offer?

Amy SchumerAmy Schumer has revealed she turned down ‘The Daily Show’.

Speaking to the The Daily Beast, Schumer explained “I was so honored to be asked and considered. With Comedy Central, I project so much ‘You’re my parents!’ on the network and the people that run it, so them saying, ‘We believe in you and trust that you can do this,’ I thought, ‘Oh my god, thank you!’”

Amy Poehler Chris Pratt Pixar

Jurassic World has topped the US box office for the second time this weekend, taking a massive $102 million. The dinosaur action flick starring Chris Pratt managed to beat Pixar’s latest offering Inside Out in a very tight race, which saw the animation take $91 million in it's opening weekend. 

Jurassic WorldJurassic World is still on top of the US box office.

But while Inside Out might not have managed to take the top spot, it did give Pixar the second-highest opening weekend in the studio’s history. "Inside Out would have been number one in any other weekend," said Phil Contrino, vice president of BoxOffice.com. "At the end of the day, it doesn't matter. Being number one is overrated.”

'Inside Out' Lets Amy Poehler Bring The World Some Extra Joy


Amy Poehler Pete Docter

The new Pixar movie Inside Out is about the emotions swirling around in an 11-year-old girl's head. "Joy was the last emotion to be cast," says director-cowriter Pete Docter, "and it was the most difficult of any of the characters to write for because she had a tendency of being really annoying." Joy is a relentlessly chirpy cheerleader, he says. "You wanna sock that person!"

'Inside Out''Inside Out' brings together Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness

Enter Amy Poehler, ideal casting for the role after her years as the happy control-freak Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation. She was thrilled by the project: "From the minute they told me I was like, this is the best movie ever made! And it will be the only good movie I've ever been in. And I can't believe I'm in it."

'Inside Out' Has 100% On Rotten Tomatoes. Best Film Ever.


Amy Poehler

Time to add Inside Out to the list of Pixar's modern animated classics. Pete Docter and Ronnie del Carmen's new movie has sort of flown in under the radar though it seems a slick script with beautiful animation and the voice talents of Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Lewis Black and Mindy Kaling has worked - big time.

Inside OutInside Out is set to be another major hit for Pixar

Inside Out follows Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Riley is guided by her emotions (played by the stars) - Joy (Poehler), Fear (Hader), Anger (Black), Disgust (Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith).

Benedict Cumberbatch's Globes Photobomb: The Oscar Selfie Of 2015


Benedict Cumberbatch Meryl Streep Margaret Cho Michael Keaton Amy Poehler Golden Globe Awards

These days, it’s not an award show without an official selfie or photobomb or whatever image-related bandwagon Hollywood is hopping on that week. I’m talking, of course, about Benedict Cumberbatch, that painstaking “penguin” pronouncing pun producing pharaoh of the internet (feel free to pitch in a synonym starting with “p”).

Benedict Cumberbatch: the most awkward Brit in showbiz?

Meanwhile, Meryl Streep was posing for a photo-op with an in-disguise Margaret Cho. Oh, and guess who was behind the camera? A treat for older viewers – it was Michael Keaton. It kind of begs the question - is BC's photobomb this year's Oscars selfie?

They Came Together Review


Good

How do you spoof a genre that's already a joke? Filmmakers David Wain and Michael Showalter clearly think the answer is to go for broke with a nonstop barrage of silliness, because some of the jokes are bound to stick. They did the same thing for teen summer-camp comedies more than a decade ago with Wet Hot American Summer, which stars many of the same actors. And while this movie is just as hilarious, it never quite transcends its own jokiness. Because as a rom-com it's never very engaging.

The story plays out as Joel and Molly (Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler) meet up with their friends (Bill Hader and Ellie Kemper) and regale them with the story of their romance. Everything about their courtship is just like in the movies, from the meet-cute to the fact that New York is another character in their story. Molly runs an adorable candy shop, while Joel is a "not too handsome or too Jewish" corporate raider sent to shut her down, but they hit it off, engage in a wildly energetic first sexual encounter, then go through the usual montage sequences on their way to the usual rough patches ("Your dreams don't pay the rent!"), breakups and mad-dash reunions.

Since it's told in flashbacks, the film feels almost like a collection of comedy sketches, most of which are ridiculously funny. The jokes are clever and pointed, with riotous side characters including sassy best friends, inappropriate relatives, idiotic coworkers and clingy ex-lovers. So every scene is a zany mixture of goofy slapstick, surreal visual gags and hysterically overstated emotion. Thankfully, the cast is more than adept at wringing every moment for laughter. Rudd and Poehler have impeccable timing, and they're supported by a terrific cast of seasoned comical actors, including amusing cameos from the likes of Adam Scott, Michael Shannon and Norah Jones.

Steve Dallas may have a high-flying career as a TV weather man, but it hasn't affected his feelings for his distinctly less successful best buddy Ben Baker.

Ben's father has passed away and thus needs someone around who understands him and who can pull him through one of the toughest times of his life. Things get complicated though when Mr Baker Sr.'s last will and testament requests Ben be the receiver of his house, business and estate.

Louis C.K's 'Tomorrow Night' Is Released Alongside 'Don't Torrent' Plea


Louis C.K. Steve Carell Amy Poehler J.B. Smoove

Louis C.K is an honest guy. At least, he seems to be an honest guy. Instead of implementing loads of anti-pirating measurements, he released his dormant film, Tomorrow Night with minimum hoo-ha, and accompanied it with a friendly reminder that pirating would likely stop him being to work in the way he does, and he'll probably stop doing Louie - and no one wants that to happen.

Louis CKPress: Louis C.K from his hit FX show, Louie

Why should we care? Well, because C.K is one of the most organic workers in comedy right now. He doesn’t do bad things, or things he considers bad, and he works really hard. Of course, pirating a silly big-budget action film and then buying C.K’s film doesn’t offer you repent – you dirty internet thief, but it does at least show support for the way in which Louis works. That’s enough gushing, for now.

Bono Warned To "Watch Your Back" After Amy Poehler Kiss At Golden Globes


Amy Poehler Bono Nick Kroll Golden Globe Awards

Amy Poehler was awarded the Best Actress in a Television Series (Comedy) award at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards for her role as Leslie Knope in Parks and Recreation this weekend. It was a thoroughly deserved recognition and one that Poehler, who also co-hosted the event with Tina Fey, was overwhelmed with. The win also earned her a congratulator smooch from U2 frontman Bono, an extra that Poehler's boyfriend didn't approve of.

As Poehler got up to the stage to accept her award, she was congratulated by Bono, who has given a passionate kiss from Poehler, with the singer then receiving a light-hearted threat from Poehler's man Nick Kroll. He posted on his Twitter: "Hey Bono, watch your back," in an attempt to scare the singer into submission. So far, we don't think it worked.
