Megan Mullally: 'Party Down' Movie Has Financing, May Shoot Next Summer

On the most recent episode of Comedy Bang! Bang!, Megan Mullally let a couple of juicy details slip about the much-wished-for Party Down movie. The most encouraging news is that it appears that the movie has financing, pending script approval, which was one of the biggest hurdles to the film getting made. And once that script approval comes in and the money starts flowing, they're hoping to shoot next spring or summer during the hiatus for everyone's TV gigs.

And she made it very clear that the entire cast is super excited to get back into their bow ties, saying that there'd be "some sort of [...]

Nick Offerman Explains How He Makes Out with His Wife for TV

Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally are America's cool parents. Actually, they're more like America's sexually charged aunt and uncle. Recently, Nick Offerman was asked how he and his wife get themselves in the Ron and Tammy mood:

We actually don't do much preparation. We knew that we wanted our lovemaking on screen to be as upsetting as possible to the viewer, so we actually went out into the yard, onto a soft, grassy area, to rehearse making out because the way in which we consume each other's faces and bodies has a certain violence to it. It's something that, really gratifyingly, Amy Poehler is unable to watch. When [...]

Megan Mullally Is/Was/Will Be the Coolest

Megan Mullally has picked up some great stories over the course of her career, from hiding from a tornado under a card table with Michelle Pfeiffer to taking her shirt off on Parks & Rec before even meeting the director of the episode. Did you know that she was hired to guest star on Happy Endings because Casey Wilson was impressed by her phone's address book at a party, or that she was afraid of being fired for Karen Walker's high-pitched voice on Will & Grace? Well, she was.

Party Down Movie Definitely Happening With Full Cast, Says Megan Mullally

Megan Mullally announced at a press event for Breaking In (some comedy show that isn't Party Down) that the full cast (with the possible exception of Jane Lynch) is in for the Party Down movie, and that John Enbom is writing the script, the outline for which was "enthusiastically approved" by investors. Enthusiastically approved! Mullally also said that we may meet "Lydia's ex-husband – Ed I think is [his] name – who was really racist and a misogynist." Weird, I didn't think it was possible to salivate this much without choking on my own spit.

Comedy Stars Dominate Sundance's 2012 Film Selections

Oh, what's that, Sundance Film Festival's 2012 Dramatic Selections? You want to be re-named the Awesome List of Comedy Stars 2012 Selections? Because you include Tim and Eric's The Comedy and Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally's Smashed? And The End of Love with Michael Cera, For Ellen with Jon Heder, Nobody Walks with John Krasinski, Safety Not Guaranteed with Aubrey Plaza and Mark Duplass, and Save the Date with Lizzy Caplan, Alison Brie, and Martin Starr? Man, that's a lot of funny actors for a list of dramatic movies. Maybe we can work something out re: the name change. Check out the films' synopses below.

Ben Schwartz: Animated Boy Ninja

But seriously, what the juice? This is Ben Schwartz in the part he was born to play: an excited teenager. Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja debuts next month on Disney XD, Disney's animated action-orientated kids network that you probably didn't know existed. The show is about Schwartz's character finding an 800-year-old ninja guide called "NinjaNomicon" (I'm not making this stuff up) and using it to fight bad guys and get through high school. The show also features Jim Rash, Tim Curry, Megan Mullally, and John Oliver, so let's all start making babies fast so we don't look weird watching it. Speaking of weird, watch the clip below that explains [...]

Celebrating St. Patrick's Day with Megan Mullally, Fred Armisen, Stephen Merchant and More

To celebrate the joyous holiday of St. Paddy's Day, Conan gathered its favorite funny people and served 'em all up a delicious cold green- [spit take]. No one really seems sure what it is, but I like to imagine that it's that stuff Dumbledore has to drink to get to the Horcrux in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman Do Cowboy Dragon Karaoke All the Time

The best way to enjoy this music video is to imagine that it's the kind of thing Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman often do on a random Tuesday, and CollegeHumor just happened to capture it on video this time. I bet they text each other stuff like this during the day:

Nick: After work are we gonna finish up s4 of The Wire or try Homeland? Megan: ORRR we could go inside a karaoke machine and sing a cowboy duet about a creationist and a paleontologist riding on a dragon together? Nick: YES, Chinese afterwards? Megan: It's a date. Love you Nick:

Trade Roundup: Bob's Burgers, Sacha Baron Cohen, Diablo Cody

- Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally will all guest star on Bob's Burgers this season. Aziz plays "a geeky teenage gamer who mentors Bob on a game called Burger Boss in exchange for Bob’s help with a bully problem." In a separate episode, Offerman and Mullally will play "aging, married hippie farmers who wind up hiring Bob’s kids…as 'weed pickers.'" Bob's Burgers, you've done it again! ("Done it" = procured awesome, funny guest stars. Spelling that out doesn't sound as declarative and snappy, weirdly enough.)

- Sacha Baron Cohen has been cast as Thenardier in the movie musical version of Les Miserables. With comedy talent [...]

Penny's Mom & Dave's Dad Sitting in a Tree, Michael McKean & Megan Mullally

Happy Endings has cast Michael McKean as Dave's dad, who will become romantically involved with Megan Mullally as Penny's mom. This is incredible, like when you try and get your divorced mom to date your best friend's divorced dad so you two can be sisters and have sleepovers every night and play MASH and talk about boys and make snickerdoodles. Or it's a smart way to generate storylines for two main characters who don't have too many scenes together. That second one mostly, probably.

That Time Alison Brie, Nick Offerman, and Megan Mullally Smoked Pot to Promote a Movie

Well, this seems like a fun time. The best part, other than all the parts, is that Alison Brie isn't even in this movie. She must've just did this as a friendly gesture. Meaning Megan probably texted her one Sunday and been like, "Hey Al, we are shooting this promo thing for a movie we're in that Nick produced. You want to appear in it and maybe stay for dinner. Nick is grilling some steaks, you know Nick, and I'm making a salad with some veggies I got from the Silverlake farmers market." (Megan Mullally is famous for long texts.) This movie doesn't come out until next March, so [...]

Moustache-less Nick Offerman on Megan Mullally and Meat Products

This clip of Nick Offerman telling the story of how he met Megan Mullally is probably cute and sweet, but honestly, I couldn't even focus on it because I was so captivated by his lack of a moustache. That upper lip looks so naked! If you want more Offerman without a distracting visual, here's a print interview in which he discusses his fans' habit of sending him bacon at restaurants. "Those are my finest fans, the ones who have meat for me," he proclaims. We will always have meat for you, Duke Silver. Metaphorical meat.

Up All Night Recap: "Rivals"

After a string of holiday episodes that saw the action on Up All Night shifting to the domestic front – thanks largely to Ava’s relationship with Kevin (Jason Lee) taking center stage – the latest episode of the show returned to the workplace/domestic split that’s been the norm on Up All Night in an installment that didn’t feature Jason Lee’s character. “Rivals” did a much better job than most Up All Night episodes that have tried to tackle both Reagan’s home and work lives, offering up two very funny plotlines that were equally engaging.

Reagan’s work crisis this week begins when Shayna (Megan Mullally), the Southern host of Ava’s rival [...]

Megan Mullally Schools Aubrey Plaza, Lizzy Caplan, and Casey Wilson in Coolness

Megan Mullally stars in this Funny or Die video as Peggy Dvorak, the gardening and NPR-listening guru who's dedicated her life's work to turning happy tanned actresses into edgy, deep intellectuals. Her clients include Aubrey Plaza, Lizzy Caplan, Casey Wilson, Michaela Watkins and Lake Bell, but definitely not Ellie Kemper, because some girls just do not have what it takes. Incidentally, "donut hole" is my new go-to insult of all time.
