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
They’re good friends from back in their days at “Saturday Night Live” together, and Amy Poehler and Jimmy Fallon had a blast on “The Tonight Show” on Wednesday night (December 9).
The “Baby Mama” babe, who was in the house to plug her new movie “Sisters,” took part in one of Fallon’s funny games called “Truth or Truth,” in which the players have the choice of telling the truth or telling… the truth.
Their creative chemistry is nothing short of legendary and Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are at it again in the January 2016 Social Issue of Glamour magazine.
The “Parks and Recreation” star begins by asking gal pal Fey about playing a “woman-child” in their new movie “Sisters,” to which Tina replies, “Woman-child, I think, is in reference to the fact that there are many male comedians who play man-childs—man-childs is a word. I do think it’s fun to be able to play a character that’s in no way aspirational and in no way a role model, and the more female characters there are on-screen, there’s less pressure on every character to represent everyone. I love playing people who are flawed.”
Balancing a relationship and a career is tricky business and it seems Amy Poehler and Nick Kroll just couldn't make it work, as the comedic couple has gone their separate ways after two years of dating.
According to an insider close to the "Parks and Recreation" actress and "The League" funnyman, “They really tried, but it just wasn’t realistic anymore. They were spending more time apart than together.”
They had such great chemistry in “Baby Mama” and now Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are teaming up again for “Sisters.”
The “Parks and Recreation” star and the “30 Rock” babe worked with director Jason Moore and costars Maya Rudolph, Ike Barinholtz, John Leguizamo, Dianne Wiest and James Brolin and the official trailer debuted on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” last night (July 14).
While award season is an exciting time in Hollywood, this year's annual pre-Oscar event, unite4:humanity, was more somber for some, including Amy Poehler.
Just hours after learning of "Parks and Recreation" executive producer Harris Wittels' untimely death, the actress attended the event, which is meant to celebrate the entertainment industry's commitment to philanthropy. She was being honored for her work with "Worldwide Orphans," but was having a hard time smiling for the cameras.
