Parker Posey and Eugene Mirman Cast in Comedy Central's 'Crazy House'

The cast of Nick Turner and Lee Rubenstein's Comedy Central pilot Crazy House is beginning to take shape with some great names, Variety reports. Parker Posey has signed on to appear in the pilot as Dr. Krimmens, the head of the mental hospital where the two main characters are staying due to a plead of insanity after accidentally sending their landlord into a coma. If the pilot gets picked up to series, Posey's part could possibly become a regular character as well.

In addition to Posey, Eugene Mirman, Johnny Pemberton, Erik Charles Nielsen, Demorge Brown, Joe Urla, Kate Berlant, Jay Oakerson, and Lindsay Ames recently joined the [...]

Roy's Coming Back to 'The Office', Parker Posey Penis Party Girl, and a Predictable 'Scary Movie' Casting

- Do call it a comeback, he hasn't be here for years. The former almost Mr. Pam Beesly, Roy, is coming back to The Office's office. David Denman's return won't be permanent but at least it might cause some conflict. Unless this casting just means the office finds a copy of Threat Level Midnight 2 (aka Threat Level Noon).

- Parker Posey is replacing the previously cast Leslie Mann as the "shot girl" at Schmidt's penis party.  She might also make an appearance as the "Ghost of Bangs Future," a specter who teaches Zooey's Jess about the dangers of living a quirky life.

Parker Posey Guest Starring on This Week's Parks and Rec

Well, this is pretty great. The always-amazing Parker Posey is guest starring on this week's Parks and Rec as high-society Lindsay, "the biggest snob in Eagleton." Apparently there's a disagreement about a fence and there will be a garbage fight? But really, I was on board just with Parker Posey's involvement. The rest is just gravy.

Parker Posey Tells How She Ended Up on 'Louie'

"I did a benefit reading at his kids’ school… and it was the greatest cast ever: Marisa Tomei, Nathan Lane, Mario Cantone — Mike Daisey did the stage directions — and Louie and me. Afterward, he said, 'I want you to come on the show — I’d really like you to play my therapist.' I had just seen it a few weeks before and I was like, 'Oh, my God, I would love to.'

… He said: 'O.K., I know what I’m going to do with you. I’ve wanted to do it for a while, and it’s a mix of a couple of different stories and characters.' And then he [...]

Parker Posey Describes Her 'Louie' Character as Maude+Mary Poppins+Mary Tyler Moore

"It felt like a composite of Ruth Gordon from Harold and Maude, and there’s kind of Mary Poppins, Mary Tyler Moore too, like is this for real? Is she for real? What’s going on?  What’s going on inside of this person? I had no idea! These people you meet in the city that have come from so many places, to reinvent themselves, to reinvent the moment, to change, to transform situations, she’s that. It’s a thing that is very particular to this city. And especially in Woody Allen. People have more dimensions to them than we give them credit for." - Parker Posey on Liz, her incredible character from last [...]

Parker Posey Teaches You How To Win an Emmy (or at Least Accept One)

I always told friends, "I don't want to become an actor because what happens when I win an Emmy!? I wouldn't know what to say." Now everything's changed, so Breaking Bad, I'm ready for my award winning guest star role whenever you need me. Hopefully, this video also prepared Park-Pose for her eventual acceptance speech when she wins an Emmy for her guest performance on Louie.
