“Ned Rifle” Set for Spring Release
Filed Under: Movies, News • Posted on December 4th, 2014 by Jennifer • No Comments »

Vimeo is partnering with indie specialist Hal Hartley for the North American spring release of his dark comedy “Ned Rifle,” starring Liam Aiken and Aubrey Plaza.

The film will show on a day-and-date platform this spring through a limited exclusive window with Vimeo On Demand, then will expand via Hartley’s own successful storefront Possible Films and other aggregated platforms. “Ned Rifle” will also see a theatrical five-city art-house launch, led by a run at New York City’s IFC Center, that will coincide with the VOD release.

“One can never be independent enough,” said Hartley. “This is a real opportunity to take advantage of new business models, new marketing ideas and platforms, and ultimately, to effectively reach my audience in the most direct and successful way possible.”

Plaza plays the long-lost flame of Henry Fool in the third and final chapter of Hartley’s trilogy, launched with 1997’s “Henry Fool” and continued with 2007’s “Fay Grim.” Returning actors include Thomas Jay Ryan (Henry Fool), Parker Posey (Fay Grim), Aiken and James Urbaniak reprising their original roles.

Hartley’s script for “Henry Fool” won the screenplay award at Cannes. In it, Urbaniak’s Simon Grim character writes an epic poem in blank verse, winning acclaim and controversy for its pornographic content, while Henry Fool abandons writing and takes Simon’s old job as a garbageman to support his family.

In “Fay Grim,” Posey’s character descends into a world of espionage to locate the notebooks that belonged to her fugitive husband, Henry Fool.

“Ned Rifle” premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September and Dennis Harvey gave it a positive review, asserting it was Hartley’s best work since “Henry Fool.”

“Parks and Recreation” Final Season to Premiere Tuesday, January 13th
Filed Under: News, Parks And Recreation • Posted on December 2nd, 2014 by Jennifer • 1 Comment »

In the first TV event of the new year, NBC is giving its landmark comedy “Parks and Recreation” a sendoff that will maximize the show’s cultural impact. The seventh and final season of this critically-acclaimed and beloved series will begin Tuesday, Jan. 13 with back-to-back episodes (8-9 p.m. ET/PT) and continue with back-to-back episodes each week until the hourlong series finale on Tuesday, Feb. 24 following “The Voice.”

The return of the series, in fact, will be scheduled to premiere in the afterglow of the Jan. 11 “72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards,” co-hosted by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.

“Mike Schur and Amy Poehler, along with their incredible producers, cast, and crew, have given us one of the great television comedies of all time, and we’re inordinately proud of ‘Parks and Recreation,’” said NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt. “In an effort to give it the send-off it deserves, we wanted to ‘eventize’ the final season to maximize the impact of these episodes, which really do take the show to a new level. The highly-anticipated one-hour finale will air behind ‘The Voice’ in order to lead the largest audience possible into what promises to be a very special hour of television.”

“Critics, viewers and all of us at NBC fell in love with this endearing, funny, heartfelt show and its authentic cast of characters,” added Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment. “After seven amazing seasons, saying goodbye to the folks of Pawnee will be bittersweet, so we want to give the show and its fans the most impactful final season possible.”

Starring Golden Globe winner Amy Poehler as a mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Ind., “Parks and Recreation” has been Emmy Award nominated and is a winner of the Television Critics Assn. Award for best comedy, AFI Award, American Comedy Award and the highly prestigious Peabody Award.

The series also stars Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Jim O’Heir and Retta.

Aubrey Plaza on Being Grumpy Cat and Saying Goodbye to ‘Parks and Recreation’
Filed Under: Interviews • Posted on November 24th, 2014 by Jennifer • No Comments »

Aubrey Plaza’s Twitter handle is @evilhag, but she’s more sentimental than you might think. She loves Christmas movies, for instance, so when she was asked to give a voice one of the biggest Internet memes, she couldn’t turn it down.

The result is Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever, which debuts November 29 at 8 PM Eastern on Lifetime. Plaza plays the voice of the frowning feline in this crazy, super-meta, über-odd live-action movie where she helps a little girl save her favorite pet store. She played Grumpy Cat much like her misanthropic character on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, April Ludgate, but she refuses to be typecast; once Parks ends its final season this spring, the Upright Citizens Brigade-trained Plaza will put that blasé character on the shelf and explore roles that feel “scary to me in some way,” such as the ones in recent independent films like About Alex and Life After Beth.

Plaza took a break from filming the Parks series finale to talk to me about being Grumpy Cat, what she looks for in her movie roles, why April will always be near to her heart, and how emotional this final season of Parks has been.

Aubrey Plaza On Prank Calls, Online Rumors and Her First AOL Screen Name
Filed Under: Interviews, Magazine Alerts • Posted on November 20th, 2014 by Jennifer • No Comments »

She won us over with her bluntly lovable Parks & Recreation character April Ludgate. She toughened up Funny People, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and episodes of Portlandia, and she recently made meme history by voicing the title role of Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever. Through it all, Aubrey Plaza has been an outspoken lover of pranks, so we spent an afternoon watching her prank-call businesses while wielding her signature deadpan at the camera. Below, Plaza offers some pranking pro-tips and reveals that her original AOL screen name was “RadBeaver.”

What’s the most important thing about making a successful prank call?

Never use your name. Always use the name “Tiffany Amber Theesin”  — spelled exactly like that.

Best prank you’ve ever pulled?

Following my middle-school principal home in a cardboard box after school. I followed her down the street, and every time she turned around I would drop down and hide in the box. She knew it was me.

How do you prank people via social media?

I believe the Internet is one huge prank on everyone in the world. The joke is on us. And sure, there are many ways… I like to sign people up for ridiculous email subscriptions that they definitely don’t want.

Has anyone ever prank-called you?

My little sister and her friends called me once and told me that my sister was high for the first time and freaking out, and I believed them and proceeded to “talk her down” for an hour before they broke and then laughed at me and told me I sounded like a mom.

What’s the weirdest or least accurate thing you’ve ever read about yourself online?

That I am entirely made up of human parts.
 
Do you see social networking as an integral part of your work, or do you prefer to outsource it?

I am only on Twitter because I joined a long time ago and have never outsourced it. I don’t see it as an integral part of my work at all… It has nothing to do with my work. It’s mostly something I do when I’m bored or feel like promoting something I care about. Or a way for me to confront anonymous haters of my basketball team, the Pistol Shrimps.
What would your career look like in a world without the Internet?

The same? Is this a trick question? I’m scared.

What was your AOL screen name?

For real, my first AOL screen name ever was “RadBeaver.” This is not a joke. I thought beavers were funny animals and had no idea that it would attract creepers in chat rooms. Once I learned the other meaning of “beaver” I quickly got off AOL and joined a convent.

What were you into in the early web 2.0 days — Friendster? Myspace? LiveJournal?

I was really into any blogspot. I created a ton of fake blogs. Two favorites: saltyseahags.blogspot.com (a humor blog written from the point of view of a sea witch that lives in the bottom of the ocean) and imghanadie.blogspot.com (an actual love journal of my study abroad experience in Ghana — this really pissed off my parents).

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve bought online?

A toilet goblin.
 
Whom do you stalk on Instagram?

Really old people. Can’t get enough of them. The older the better. Send them all to me. Please.
 
If you could adopt any web-famous animal, who would it be?

GRUMPY CAT.

How often do you Google yourself?

I don’t have to because my MOTHER DOES IT EVERY SECOND AND THEN TELLS ME ABOUT IT!!!

What’s the longest you’ve ever been offline?

Not long at all but when I’m done emailing this interview to you I am going to throw all of my devices into the LA river and join a forest cult and check trees and instead of stupid emails.
