Adam Pally: "The Young Talent That I Know, They Don't Want to Go to Networks"

Adam Pally recently sat down with Vanity Fair for an interview about his new movie role in Slow Learners and some of the many projects he's working on, including his development deal with ABC. Despite the ABC deal, Pally gave a grim but realistic prediction when asked for his thoughts on the future of network comedy:

Even as a company man, Pally recognizes that his type of comedy—young, sort of weird—isn’t that hot with networks these days. “The young talent that I know, they don’t want to go to networks. Eventually the network will become like a newspaper, kind of fade out, and then there will [...]

Casey Wilson and Adam Pally Talk George Zimmerman on 'The Jeselnik Offensive'

There was a little bit of a Happy Endings reunion on The Jeselnik Offensive last night with stars Casey Wilson and Adam Pally appearing on the program to do what they do best: discuss controversial legal rulings. Nonetheless, it's pretty great to see the cast of Happy Endings continue to work together despite the show being no more.

Alison Brie Joins T.J. Miller and Adam Pally in 'Search Party'

Community star Alison Brie has joined the cast of a promising new comedy called Search Party, The Wrap reports. The film follows two roommates, played by T.J. Miller (She's Out of My League) and Adam Pally (Happy Endings), going to dangerous lengths to get their buddy Nardo (Thomas Middleditch, The Campaign) back from Mexico after he's stranded there, naked. Brie will be playing a co-worker and love interest of either Miller or Pally's character. Rasing Hope's Shannon Woodward recently signed on to play Middleditch's character's girlfriend. This is shaping up to be a pretty impressive cast made up of funny young people who haven't had the chance to [...]

Talking with 'Happy Endings' Stars Casey Wilson and Adam Pally about the New Season

Casey Wilson and Adam Pally are two of the funniest people in a cast full of funny people on ABC's Happy Endings, which just kicked off its third season last week. The two UCB Theatre alums have seen their ABC sitcom grow into one of the most consistently funny show on TV over the past two years, and with a lot of long-running sitcoms ending their runs in the next year or two, Happy Endings is right on the verge of becoming the best sitcom on TV, no contest. I recently participated in a roundtable chat with Casey Wilson and Adam Pally, lobbing questions at them with a roomful [...]

And speaking of Max, Adam Pally just did a great interview with the AV Club about his character, the show, and what we can expect in the new season (that starts tonight!): I’m looking forward to season three. I’m going to be getting to do a lot of stuff with Damon because Brad is out of a job, so Max is showing Brad how to live as a street survivor, and I think there’s a lot of fun stuff in store there.
