Amy Schumer Is Teaming Up with Paul Feig for a New Movie

Amy Schumer is about to make her big screen debut in Judd Apatow's Trainwreck this July, and now she already has another starring film role lined up.

In the sketch, guest star Josh Charles — who appeared last season in the Sorkin parody "The Foodroom" — joins Schumer for some spot-on small town football drama, and the rest is better seen than explained. Like "A Very Realistic Military Game," "Football Town Nights" is proof that, in the hands of talented writers and performers, serious issues like sexism and rape culture can turn into comedy gold.

Comedy Central Reportedly Considered Amy Poehler, Louis C.K., and Amy Schumer to Take Over 'The Daily Show'

Comedy Central revealed this morning that Daily Show contributor Trevor Noah is set to replace Jon Stewart when he leaves the show this year, and according to Grantland's Bill Simmons, Noah was considered among some huge comedy stars: Amy Poehler, Louis C.K., and Amy Schumer. As Simmons notes, both C.K. and Poehler were probably not the most realistic candidates for the gig, but had Schumer been offered the opportunity prior to making her new film Trainwreck with Judd Apatow, who knows what could've happened? In any case, Noah is an excellent choice for the job, and Schumer agrees.
