All Of Your Favorite Actresses Star in This New Funny Or Die Video

by Chris Harnick, posted Dec 6th 2011 12:30PM
Funny or Die Home for ActressesMegan Mullally, Lake Bell, Lizzy Caplan, Casey Wilson, Aubrey Plaza, Ellie Kemper and Michaela Watkins have teamed up for a new Funny Or Die video, 'Home for Actresses.' See, we weren't kidding with that headline.

In the new video, Mullally plays Peggy Dvorak, the owner/headmistress of an institute that acts as an "in-patient" facility for actresses to learn how to be cooler. As if the likes of Plaza, Wilson and Caplan needed help getting cooler.

She's not teaching acting, because "acting can't be taught," no, Peggy teaches these very funny ladies "how to be cool." From fashion tips to dating do's and don'ts -- date a guy with a drug problem -- Peggy has advice for all situations.

Check out the video below.

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)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 2nd 2011 2:56AM
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.

EXCLUSIVE 'Childrens Hospital' Season 3 Sneak Peek

by Maggie Furlong, posted Apr 29th 2011 3:15PM
'Childrens Hospital' doesn't return for another couple of months (season 3 premieres Thursday, June 2, midnight ET on Adult Swim), but I got the exclusive preview the first two episodes of the new season, and it's definitely worth the wait.

'Childrens Hospital' Season 3 Premiere

They don't have any trailers or clips that I can share with you yet, but I do have scoop on the episodes, including some fun guest stars, and a few exclusive photos.

The season kicks off with 'Run Dr. Lola Spratt, Run.' Unfortunately some dumb kid chose the weekend to sink in some crazy quicksand, and we all know doctors don't work on the weekends. So, Sy (Henry Winkler) has to get the gang back together for the case.

Lake Bell Prefers 'Enemies With Benefits' on 'Access Hollywood Live' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Jan 28th 2011 1:45PM
According to Lake Bell of 'No Strings Attached,' the idea of "friends with benefits" would never work. Instead, she suggests on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated) that those seeking sex without emotional attachment stick to people they really don't like.

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.

Even celebrities aren't safe from Hepatitis A

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 22nd 2008 3:20PM

Ashton KutcherThis is not an episode of Punk'd.

Health officials in New York City are suggesting that everyone who was at the Socialista Bar on February 7th (and also on the 8th and the 11th) should get vaccinated for Hepatitis A just in case. A bartender who was working on those days has tested positive for the disease, which is caused by contact with fecal matter and creates an inflammation of the liver.

Why is this story on a TV blog? Well, it just so happens that Demi Moore threw a party for husband Ashton Kutcher on February 7, and guests at the party included Bruce Willis, Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane, Madonna, Ali Larter, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lucy Liu, Kate Hudson, Lake Bell, Ivanka Trump, and other celebrities. (Side note: doesn't it just make you all warm and gooey inside that Demi and Ashton get along so well with Demi's ex Bruce Willis?)

I wonder if this is what critics mean when they say that Hollywood is infecting America?

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).

It doesn't look good for Surface

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 23rd 2006 6:24PM
SurfaceI was afraid of this. Sources tell me that it doesn't look like there will be a second season of NBC's Surface. The network won't make the official announcement until next month, when they unveil their fall schedules, but it looks like the show has ended.

But let's try to save it! Yeah, these petition things often don't make a difference, but there's no harm. Here's the Save Surface on NBC petition. Almost 12,000 signatures so far.

It's a shame if this doesn't see a second season. It's better than Invasion and Threshold.

Surface: Season Finale

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 6th 2006 9:10PM

SurfaceI like a show that doesn't BS around with dull scenes in its season finale. Right off the bat we're given the scenario: Miles and his family are packing up to escape town before the tsunami hits, Caitlin's Vespa is stolen when she arrives too late to find Miles, and she's knocked out when the crook pushes her, and Laura steals a rental car from the airport and blows by a road block to find Rich, who has been locked in a room at the mysterious lab. (And what is Jackson's name and pic doing on the lab's computers? Section Chief?!?)

Here we go!

Surface: Episode 14

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 30th 2006 9:29PM

You know how sometimes they'll advertise an episode of a TV show as the "episode you must see" or "the episode that changes everything?" Usually it's just hype or wishful thinking. They didn't advertise episode 14 of Surface as an episode that changes everything or a must see. But they could have. Because, well, this is the episode that changes everything.

Carter Jenkins of Surface: The TV Squad Interview

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 30th 2006 12:30PM

Carter JenkinsSo we've already told you that Surface is the best new show of the season, and why you should be watching it. I recently talked with Carter Jenkins, who plays Miles, the shy, curious, lizard-loving teen who started the whole thing when he brought an egg he found in the water into his home and now might be turning into a lizard thing himself. He called from California, after wrapping up filming on the NBC show for the season.

Carter Jenkins: Bob!
Bob Sassone: Hey man, how's it going?
