Lake Bell On 'How to Make It'-'Entourage' Comparisons & Her 'New Girl' Cameo (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 13th 2011 4:30PM
When 'How to Make It in America' began, Lake Bell's character Rachel was in the midst of a break-up with Ben (Bryan Greenberg). In Season 2, she seems to be on the verge of hooking up with Kid Cudi's character Dom. Bell talked with 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) about what's in store for her character this season, the constant comparisons 'How to Make It' gets to 'Entourage,' and also previewed her upcoming cameo on Fox's 'New Girl.'

Billy Bush started out by asking if 'How to Make It' is the new 'Entourage.' Bell had undoubtedly heard the comparisons before. "I think it's inherently a different show than 'Entourage,' but it does satiate that cool, young hip thing ... a group of friends kind of figuring things out," she said.

Lake Bell Talks About Facial Acting During Sex Scenes (VIDEO)

Lake BellThere's a lot more going on in most movie sex scenes than ... well, what's obviously going on. On 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!), Lake Bell talked about the added challenges of making sure those scenes work both in motion, and in the inevitable stills taken from them.

"You gotta make sure you're not pulling faces," she said. "'Cause I pull faces a lot. I'm like, Yeah look at me, I'm crazy!"

She instead suggested that actors and actresses need to "make sure you're kind of posing in your face a little." This is so the still shots will look flattering, though Chelsea Handler suggested that makes it even less like the real thing.

Short-lived shows: Surface

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 11th 2008 2:01PM
SurfaceDon't you just hate it when you get hooked on a show and it's yanked unceremoniously off the air, leaving you hanging into infinity? Yeah, me, too. Such was the case with Surface, an alien-sea-monster-inspired drama that aired on NBC during the 2005-2006 season.

The series starred the soulful Lake Bell as Laura Daughtery, a marine biologist who encounters a strange creature on the ocean floor. She writes up her report, only to have it confiscated by the government in the name of national security.

Meanwhile, nerdy teen Miles (Carter Jenkins, whom I predict has a huge career ahead of him, though not if he keeps signing on for shows like the short-lived Viva Laughlin) stumbles across a strange egg on the beach and takes it home. Imagine his surprise when out hatches a weird amphibious creature that emits an even weirder electrical current.

The Five: Under the sea

by Richard Keller, posted Jul 29th 2006 8:02AM

The Five: Under the SeaWith the announcement that the unaired pilot of Aquaman would become a downloadable video courtesy of iTunes I began to ponder all of the television shows that took place, or featured characters that lived, under the sea. After some extensive research (about five minutes) I discovered that there weren't many. So, as a public service to you, the dedicated TV Squad reader, I present the following list of underwater shows. Please put on your wet suits.

Surface: This on the list first because it was the most recent show telecast that featured underwater creatures. Only lasting one season on NBC (despite a strong fan base) the show starred Lake Bell as an oceanographer who is attacked by an unknown life-form in the Pacific Ocean. After that initial encounter, things go a little bonkers on planet Earth, including stars falling from the sky into the water, and unknown creatures washing up on public beaches. A cliffhanger episode was aired at the end of the first season, but was left up in the air due to the show's cancellation.

Surface coming to DVD in August

by Bob Sassone, posted May 2nd 2006 9:02AM
Surface castAs fans wait til later this month for word on whether or not there will be a second season of Surface (it doesn't look good) comes news that the first season will be released on DVD on August 15. So even if there isn't another year, we can at least have the first season to watch over and over again (as TVshowonDVD makes clear, the set is called a "first season set" and not "complete series," but that's just before there's no word yet about the show).
