IFC reports that Anna will be one of the guests in the second season of “Comedy Bang! Bang!” which premieres on July 12.
Scott Aukerman and Reggie Watts will be back on IFC for a second season of “Comedy Bang! Bang!”
The second season of “Comedy Bang! Bang!” kicks off on Friday, July 12 at 10PM ET/PT with 20 all new episodes and a jaw-droppingly impressive line-up of guests. The first ten episodes of the slightly surreal talk show will air from July 12 – September 13, followed by a short fall hiatus before picking back up on Friday, October 18 for ten more episodes. Host Scott Aukerman (co-creator/director/producer, “Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis”; writer/performer, “Mr. Show”) and musical cohort and one-man house band Reggie Watts (“Conan,” “Reggie Watts: Live At Central Park,” Jash.com) both return to “Comedy Bang! Bang!” with their twist on the traditional late night talk show format that infuses celebrity appearances and comedy sketches with a tinge of the surreal.
For their second season of Comedy Bang! Bang! Scott and Reggie will be joined in the studio by Jessica Alba (“Sin City”), Aziz Ansari (“Parks and Recreation”), David Cross (“Arrested Development,” “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret”), Jim Gaffigan (“Flight of the Concords,” “Bored to Death”), Zach Galifianakis (“The Hangover I,” “II,” “III”), Bill Hader (“Saturday Night Live”), Pee-wee Herman (“Pee-wee’s Playhouse”), Gillian Jacobs (“Community”), Rashida Jones (“Parks and Recreation”), Anna Kendrick (“Pitch Perfect,” “Up in the Air”), Andy Richter (“Conan”), Zoe Saldana (“Star Trek,” “Avatar”), Andy Samberg (“Saturday Night Live,” The Lonely Island), Jason Schwartzman (“Moonrise Kingdom,” “The Darjeeling Limited”), Sarah Silverman (“Wreck-It-Ralph,” “The Sarah Silverman Program”), Cobie Smulders (“The Avengers,” “How I Met Your Mother”) and Casey Wilson (“Happy Endings”).
A first teaser poster of “The Last 5 Years” was posted on the official facebook page of the movie. The production recently joined the most popular social network sites. You can keep an eye on facebook, twitter and instagram for the latest news.
As expected, after the official poster release, more promotional material of “Rapture-Palooza” is coming out. Lionsgate released another still and a couple behind the scenes photos (only one featuring Anna though).
I’m pretty sure there will be more updates soon for both “Rapture-Palooza” and “Drinking Buddies” as the release dates of the films are getting closer.
Yesterday I was a bit bored so I made some icons with our recent “Pitch Perfect” and “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” captures. Feel free to use them in any forums or social network sites but don’t claim as yours (credit link back to us is always really appreciated).
Don’t forget that we are always open for more artwork! There are no good and bad pieces as long as they’re made with love and respect to Anna. If you want us to put your artwork here e-mail us!
And more “Drinking Budies” stuff are coming out! This time we have the first official poster of the film and some promotional outtakes of the cast with the director Joe Swanberg.
Kate (Wilde) and Luke (Johnson) are coworkers at a brewery who have one of those will-they-won’t-they friendships. Unfortunately, beyond uncertain chemistry, they are also each in a relationship. Kate is with Chris (Ron Livingston), and Luke is with Jill (Anna Kendrick). Jill wants to take their relationship to the next level, but Luke isn’t ready to commit … especially when he and Kate find themselves spending a weekend alone.
Another upcoming project is added on Anna’s list. The Wrap just reported that she joined Kickstarter Movie “Wish I Was Here” directed by Zach Braff.
The “Pitch Perfect” star joins recently cast Mandy Pantinkin and Josh Gad in the film.
Anna Kendrick is set to join the cast of Zach Braff’s “Wish I Was Here,” which has been made possible by Kickstarter.
Kendrick will play Janine, a young woman into Cosplay who Braff’s brother, played by Josh Gad, becomes smitten with.
Stacey Sher and Michael Shamberg are among the producers. Worldview Entertainment recently came on to provide gap financing and executive produce.
So many cool updates today and I’m getting really excited. After “Rapture-Palooza” Trailer and new stills, the first look of Anna in “Drinking Buddies” and the LA Weekly Interview, we have the first official “Rapture-Palooza” poster and yes Anna is on it!
LA weekly posted an extended version of their interview with Anna as they weren’t able to include everything in the 2013 People Issue.
We profiled actress/singer/comedian/Twitter celebrity Anna Kendrick for our People Issue, but didn’t have space for everything.
Here are some of the best deleted bits from our interview:
I find I get the most response from things that I’m kind of honest about. When I make full-out jokes that works sometimes too, as the Ryan Gosling Tweet proved.
But sometimes when I say something really honest, like I tweeted something about sometimes I wish I could wear sign around my neck that says, “Look, I’m pretty sensitive, can everybody just be cool?”…And I got an amazing response because it was, like, an honest thing where sometimes you’re just like feeling really vulnerable…
It kind of forces you to tighten things up, which I’m bad at. Anything that I’ve ever written is just so utterly rambling…Like when God forbid I have a misunderstanding with somebody, the email that I will send them is like a ten-page novel.
Anna is features in LA Weekly’s People 2013 issue. The article includes a beautiful new shot of Anna hopefully part of a huge photoshoot that we’ll get to see soon.
Anna Kendrick: She’s Just a Girl and She’s on Fire
From a booth at the restaurant Birds, actress Anna Kendrick eyes a TV commercial across the room. “How about that pocket hose, huh? It’s a little tiny hose and it gets big. It’s a real space-saver,” she says. “If you have a yard that needs watering, I think you’ve got enough space for a hose. Sorry.”
In addition to ridiculing infomercials over lunch in Franklin Village, Kendrick does many other things that adorkable, 27-year-old Angelenos are supposed to do — not because they’re cool but simply because she wants to. She frequents hole-in-the-wall Thai restaurants and art-house theaters like Cinefamily and the New Beverly, sometimes by herself. She uses Instagram, and Snapchat, the latter of which is perfect for celebrities since the images disappear in seconds. She obsesses over the hoarding phenomenon, even hanging out in the Reddit community devoted to discussing the gory details.
She’s done most things right in her career, too, rising to a level of welcome ubiquity that rivals Neil Patrick Harris and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, fellow actor-singer-dancer-comedians who are so likable and of-the-moment that they can do no wrong. Kendrick effortlessly bounces from a Twilight sequel to Joe Swanberg’s upcoming micro-brewing indie, Drinking Buddies, to the in-production film version of the cult musical The Last Five Years. Her solo in the a cappella movie Pitch Perfect — which involved a 75-year-old Appalachian folk song and a cup used as a percussion instrument, a trick she discovered via a video posted on, yes, Reddit — hit No. 64 on the Billboard Hot 100.
We have the first still of Anna in “Drinking Buddies”! Anna and Ron (as Jill and Chris in the movie) are having a glass of wine on a pic-nic. Hope to start getting more really soon.
