Amy Poehler is a comedian/actress who is most famous from her role on Saturday Night Live. She also starred in hit movies, Baby Mama and Mean Girls. Poehler is not returning to SNL for the 08-09 season, but instead is working on a lead role in a new NBC series which will be airing early 2009
NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt announced, "Mike Schur and Amy Poehler, along with their incredible producers, cast, and crew, have given us one of the great television comedies of all time, and we're inordinately proud of Parks and Recreation.”
Taking the animated movie form to a new intellectual level, “Inside Out” has just released a new preview trailer that’s absolutely fabulous. The forthcoming flick stars Bill Hader, Mindy Kaling, Amy Poehler, Phyllis Smith, Diane Lane and Lewis Black and comes with the tagline, “Meet the little voices inside your head.”
“Inside Out” is slated to hit theaters all over the nation on June 19th and promises to be “A Major Emotion Picture.”
The “30 Rock” actress says she’ll wear a “Pierre d’Jambon romper with cheese and children’s ice skates,” in a new television spot. Meanwhile, Ms. Poehler will don an “ER bandage dress and stilts by the Ohio stilt king.”
It’s not exactly a secret that good-looking people tend to do better in showbiz, but Amy Poehler isn’t interested in playing the narcissistic game.
The “Parks and Recreation” actress explained, "In a shallow business, I just had to come to terms with being really OK with not being…symmetrical. You can either spend your life trying to be [perfect], and you can tweak and nip and tuck, and then be afraid to move your face."
Her new book “Yes Please” is one of the most-talked-about releases of the season (and it’s not even out yet), and in the forthcoming pages Amy Poehler opens up about her experience with drugs through the years.
In a newly-released excerpt, the “Parks and Recreation” starlet shares, "I tried cocaine, which I instantly loved but eventually hated.”
