“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.”
