Examining the Post-‘Will & Grace’ Careers of the Show’s Four Stars

From 1998 to 2006, Will & Grace was one of the most popular sitcoms on television and its four stars — Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally, and Sean Hayes — were inescapable. They were an infectious cast of actors who worked best when together; Will & Grace was not always the strongest sitcom but it was made infinitely better by the chemistry between the leads and the comedic talent they all shared. These four actors catapulted to stardom early in the series’ eight season run and each won Emmy Awards for their roles (Mullally received two), so greatness wasn’t just expected — it was practically guaranteed. But now? Hayes recently started a run on the lifeless CBS sitcom The Millers, Messing is slumming it on a weekly basis with the aggressively terrible The Mysteries of Laura, and McCormack and Mullally have been all over the place during the last few years — was Will & Grace the peak for them? … Read More

‘Bob’s Burgers’ Season 4 Episode 19 Recap: “The Kids Run Away”

NBC’s Thursday night invaded Bob’s Burgers this week; Dr. Yap (Ken Jeong) and Linda’s sister Gayle (Megan Mullally) made a return, though sadly with only one scene together. With the abundance of guest stars, the writers kept the plot focused and comparatively simple: Louise has a cavity, which she’ll go to any length to not get filled. And with Louise, those lengths are pretty high. … Read More

8 Great Aubrey Plaza Funny or Die Videos to Watch Instead of ‘The To Do List’

The good news is that, after something like a year of promotion, The To Do List, the teen sex comedy from writer/director Maggie Carey starring Aubrey Plaza, is out this week. The bad news is, it’s not very good (in short: too long, too formulaic, only intermittently funny). But don’t worry — Aubrey is great in it, as she is in pretty much everything. And if you decide to take a pass on this one, we’ve done a bit of a Funny or Die dig to find some of her funniest moments that you might not have seen. … Read More

The Embarrassing Early TV Commercials of Your Favorite Comic Actors

Last week, the folks at Gawker did a bit of celebrity archaeology, discovering a 1993 TV ad for the NRA that featured a very young Molly Shannon. The soon-to-be Mary Catherine reached out to the site, emphasizing that she appeared in the spot when she was — direct quote, with emphasis — “A STRUGGLING ACTRESS,” and while we understand her taking pains to separate the spot from her own views, she’s hardly the first future famous funny person whose early work was only humorous in retrospect, and unintentionally. After the jump, we’ve got early commercials by several of our favorite comic actors — all equally embarrassing. … Read More

Watch Nick Offerman Perform a Hilarious Love Song for Megan Mullally

Now that their Parks and Recreation cast mate Amy Poehler has called it quits with Will Arnett, it’s up to Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally to keep us in comedy power couple adorableness. Thankfully, that’s something they do quite well. It’s the rare Offerman interview that doesn’t include the actor rhapsodizing over his wife’s beauty, talent, and poise. And last night on Letterman, he gave us a taste of the song he wrote for Mullally’s 50th birthday. Although he only played a minute of so of what sounded to be a fairly lengthy composition, we got lyrics about Cialis, leprechauns, how she “made me your bitch, and I made you my wife.” Watch Offerman strum his acoustic guitar below, and perhaps daydream that he’s singing to you. … Read More

The Celebrity Couples We’re Most Inexplicably Attached To

We were very upset this week to learn that one of our favorite celebrity couples of all time, Amy Poehler and Will Arnett, are getting a divorce after nine years of marriage. In fact, we were much too upset, considering the fact that we know neither party personally, and we know nothing about them as a couple other than what we surmise from photos and the odd interview. But some celebrity couples just have that effect on us — we find ourselves inexplicably attached to them, whether they just make so much sense together, or because they seem to represent some little corner of perfection all on their own. After the jump, we’ve put together a list of such couples, both present and (sadly) past. Click through to see who we chose, and let us know which celebrity couples fascinate you to no end in the comments. … Read More

The Best Married Comedy Power Couples

Have you heard the news? This past weekend, Anna Faris and Chris Pratt had a baby boy. Of course, imagining Chris Pratt with anyone other than Aubrey Plaza seems a little wrong (like most, we have trouble grappling with the fact that Parks and Recreation isn’t real life), but we trust that these two will raise one hell of a funny kid. Inspired by this silly couple, we’ve gathered a list of the best married comedy power duos (in no particular order) — because, well, those still mourning Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s relationship should probably just celebrate these worthy couples instead. Check ‘em out after the jump, and hit the comments to let us know which silly married team is your all-time favorite. … Read More

Watch Alison Brie, Nick Offerman, and Megan Mullally Smoke Pot Together

Ah, the lengths that big Hollywood stars have to go to in order to get people talking about their smaller, indie projects. Not that anyone in this funny little teaser for Bob Byington’s Somebody Up There Likes Me seems too put out to be crammed together on a tiny bed, taking massive bong hits — in fact, as Splitsider points out, Alison Brie isn’t even in the movie. She’s obviously just there because who wouldn’t want to hang out with Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally? Click through to watch the entertaining clip, and to find out more about the film, check out the interview we did with Offerman when it premiered at SXSW earlier this year. … Read More

Our Favorite Female Ensembles on Television

In glancing at tomorrow’s new DVD releases, one title jumped out as being worthy of our little spotlight: yes, tomorrow marks the unveiling of Designing Women: The Final Season. Not that the ’92-’93 year was one of their best — it did feature the third and decidedly lesser version of the cast (Delta Burke and Jean Smart 4eva) and the writers were kind of running on fumes. Still, mediocre Designing Women is better than none at all; this was, after all, one of the best female ensemble shows in TV history. We nearly called it the best, and then realized what a tall claim that is. In contrast to the moving pictures, where you can barely find two important women’s roles in the same movie, television is full of crackerjack female ensembles; we’ve assembled our ten favorites after the jump, and if you’re the kind of person who thinks Sex and the City will be on it, you should prepare yourself for disappointment now. … Read More
