Parks and Recreation actress Aubrey Plaza loves basketball. But it apparently doesn’t love her back.

The 40-year-old actress tore an ACL while playing a game of “knockout” at the Phoenix Mercury practice facility.

She was shown during Saturday’s ABC broadcast of the WNBA All-Star game with crutches and a huge ice wrap on her right knee.

Play-by-play announcer Ryan Ruocco revealed that Plaza tore her ACL, which happened between the skills event and the actual game.

This was the second ACL tear from basketball for Plaza.

On Friday, Plaza was featured on Megan Rapinoe and Sue Bird’s podcast, A Touch More, and talked about her first ACL tear during a women’s recreation league in Los Angeles.

The actress mentioned she disguised herself so she could play on the same team as her sister, Natalie.

“And then, in the middle of the game, I went up for a shot and tore my ACL on the court in a wig. That’s kind of like the worst-case scenario because I was trying to go undercover, and I just snapped my knee in half, basically.”

Nkeki Obi-Melekwe and Taylor Trensch will star in the world premiere of Safety Not Guaranteed, the new musical adapted from the 2012 indie film. Obi-Melekwe and Trensch will play Darius and Kenneth, respectively—the characters played by Aubrey Plaza and Mark Duplass in the film. The show, adapted for the stage by Nick Blaemire and directed by Lee Sunday Evans, will play at BAM’s Harvey Theater from September 17 through October 20.

Obi-Melekwe made her Broadway debut as Tina Turner in Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, after starring in the West End production. She recently appeared in the new musical Redwood at the La Jolla Playhouse. Trensch’s Broadway credits include Dear Evan Hansen Camelot, Hello, Dolly!, To Kill a Mockingbird, Matilda, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and Wicked. He was last seen off-Broadway in The Seven Year Disappear.

They lead a cast that features Ashley Pérez Flanagan (Freestyle Love Supreme) as Liz, Pomme Koch (The Band’s Visit) as Jeff, Rohan Kymal (Private Party at the Public Theater) as Arnau and John-Michael Lyles (A Strange Loop) as Tristan.

This new musical reimagines Derek Connolly’s award-winning film with new songs by Ryan Miller of alt-rock group Guster. The story follows Darius, a low-level journalist who is assigned to report on a local classified ad offering the opportunity to go back in time, and the complicated relationship that ensues.

“I’ve been a fan of the film for years and always thought it could work as a musical,” said Blaemire in a statement, “but the way it’s come together has been a series of serendipitous moments you can’t plan.” He added, “And this wonderful cast and band have elevated the show beyond my wildest dreams.”

Safety Not Guaranteed features set design by Krit Robinson, costume design by the Sarita Fellows, lighting design by Reza Behjat and sound design by Drew Levy. Isabel Perry serves as the assistant directior. Illusions are by Steve Cuffio and fight direction is by Drew Leary.

Performances of Safety Not Guaranteed will begin September 17 at the Brooklyn Academy Of Music for a limited run through October 20.

The first teaser trailer for the upcoming Disney+ series, Agatha All Along, is now online! The show will debut two episodes on Wednesday, September 18, 2024.

Marvel’s upcoming “WandaVision” spinoff series “Agatha” is going to be “really scary,” at least according to one top level studio executive. Brad Winderbaum, Marvel Studios‘ head of streaming, television and animation, recently appeared on the “Official Marvel Podcast” (via The Playlist) and said “Agatha” will only be fun for so long until it starts scaring viewers.

“‘Agatha’ is really fun, but it’s really scary. And it gets quite dramatic,” Winderbaum teased. “She’s an amazing anti-hero. It lures you in with the fun of Halloween, and before you know it, you’re crying.”

“It’s a Marvel brand of scary. It’s a Halloween show,” he added. “There are deadly stakes in this series. It’s a fun ride, but it’s a dangerous one.”

Kathryn Hahn is leading the series and reprising her Emmy-nominated role of Agatha Harkness. Plot details for the show, debuting Sept. 18 on Disney+, remain under wraps. Hahn is joined in “Agatha” by Joe Locke, Patti LuPone, Aubrey Plaza, Sasheer Zamata, Ali Ahn and Debra Jo Rupp. The series picks up after the events of “WandaVision,” in which Agatha Harkness (Hahn) was left powerless thanks to Scarlet Witch, aka Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen). “WandaVision” showrunner Jac Schaeffer is behind the spinoff.

Winderbaum also spoke briefly about the upcoming limited series “Daredevil: Born Again,” which features the full-fledged return of Charlie Cox after he had brief appearances in MCU projects such as “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” “Echo” and “She-Hulk.”

“These characters have matured. The universe is different than it was,” Winderbaum explained. “Things have changed. Society has changed. Matt [Murdock] and Wilson [Fisk] have changed, and their characters are going to collide in ways we’ve never seen before. It’s no longer enough to try to murder each other. There’s a whole game of politics at play.”

Growing up is a trip. #MyOldAss, written and directed by Megan Park, is in select theaters September 13.

In this fresh coming-of-age story, an 18th birthday mushroom trip brings free-spirited Elliott (Maisy Stella) face-to-face with her wisecracking 39-year-old self (Aubrey Plaza). But when Elliott’s “old ass” starts handing out warnings about what her younger self should and shouldn’t do, Elliott realizes she has to rethink everything about family, love, and what’s becoming a transformative summer.

The studio plans to open the film in limited theaters on September 13 with a national rollout to follow.

If you’ve kept an ear to the ground this year, cinematically-speaking, you’ll likely have heard about Megalopolis – the latest opus from Francis Ford Coppola, long in the making, largely self-funded, and, by all accounts, an absolutely wild watch. The legendary filmmaker behind The Godfather trilogy (and Apocalypse Now, and The Conversation, and Bram Stoker’s Dracula – we could go on) has spoken for decades about his desire to make a film set in a modern-day America styled like the Roman Empire, as society collapses; this year, Megalopolis finally arrives, with Coppola having poured much of his own wine fortune into its production. After a split reception at Cannes, it’s officially confirmed to hit UK cinemas at the end of the summer.

Having secured a distribution deal, Megalopolis will hit cinemas in the UK and Ireland on 27 September – meaning audiences will get to make their own minds up on whether Coppola’s latest epic is a uniquely unmissable oddity, or a gigantic swing-and-miss. Either way, it boasts a sprawling and starry cast – led by Adam Driver as futuristic architect Cesar Catalina, joined by the likes of Giancarlo Esposito, Aubrey Plaza, Laurence Fishburne, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jason Schwartzman, and Talia Shire.

Here’s the official synopsis: “Megalopolis is a Roman Epic fable set in an imagined Modern America. The City of New Rome must change, causing conflict between Cesar Catilina (Adam Driver), a genius artist who seeks to leap into a utopian, idealistic future, and his opposition, Mayor Franklyn Cicero (Giancarlo Esposito), who remains committed to a regressive status quo, perpetuating greed, special interests, and partisan warfare. Torn between them is socialite Julia Cicero (Nathalie Emmanuel), the mayor’s daughter, whose love for Cesar has divided her loyalties, forcing her to discover what she truly believes humanity deserves.”

Stay tuned this September to see if Megalopolis is mega-top-olis, or a mega-flop-olis.
