Parks and Rec Star Wars Rant Explained

Recently, renowned geek, stand-up comedian and actor Patton Oswalt waxed nerdic in a lengthy filibuster scene on NBS’s Parks and Rec. His rant discussed a mixed Star Wars/Avengers universe, during 8 minutes of heightened improv that covered a lot of nerdy territory. At his C2E2 panel, he explained how the scene came about: “If you listen, Amy Poehler Is mic’d and so is Jon Glaser. They told me that they just needed me to talk for a minute in the background while Amy Poehler and John Glaser had this quick discussion.  What I didn’t know is that Amy and Aziz and the writers went, ‘Don’t yell cut and let’s see how long he’ll talk.

“I’m a huge fan of Parks and Rec and I was very excited to get booked, so I was very much like, ‘I really want to do a good job so badly,’ and I think they sort of sensed that and went, ‘Let’s see what he does!’ So that’s what I did. I just kept going, and in my mind I was… going to use The Fountain as a way to pull in Patrick McGoohan from The Prisoner somehow, but my mouth literally dried up.

After rolling a clip from the Hamm episode, Scott announced that there are three more episodes coming and the next one will feature none other than his “Parks and Rec” co-star Amy Poehler, as well as “SNL” alum Horatio Sanz.

Scott would not, however, reveal which TV show they’ll be spoofing. Watch the clip from “Late Night” above and let us know your best guess on which show he and Amy are taking on in the comments. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for “The Greatest American Hero”, which seems apt.

Chelsea Handler Mocks Taylor Swift: Talk Show Host Jokes Singer Is A Virgin On ‘Watch What Happens Live’

By The Huffington Post News Editors

Chelsea Handler is never one to hide her feelings, and she didn’t start when asked about Taylor Swift’s recent comments about how she deals with Hollywood’s “mean girls,” including Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who poked fun at her at the Golden Globe awards.

During her appearance on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” Handler said it was pretty brazen for Swift to relay that Katie Couric (who was actually quoting Madeleine Albright) once told her, “there’s a special place in Hell for women who don’t help other women.”

“I think that was a bold statement, but I’m not on anyone’s side because I just don’t care enough,” the 38-year-old talk show host told Andy Cohen. “I like that she’s being that vociferous about something that she thinks they were out to get her. They were clearly making a joke just about her demeanor, which is embarrassing. I mean, she’s just dated so many men.”

Indie Spirit Awards 2013: ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ vs. ‘Beasts Of The Southern Wild’ (PHOTOS)

By The Huffington Post News Editors

The Independent Spirit Awards are stereotyped as a drunken, casual, beachside soiree that takes place the day before the classy people step out for the Academy Awards. Hosted this year by ‘SNL‘ funnyman Andy Samberg, who described the event as “the only show watched by more people in the room than on TV,” the Spirit Awards lived up to its raunchy reputation.

Amy Poehler was on camera drinking directly from a large bottle of wine at her table, while John Hawkes stood up and threatened to drop his pants to the floor. Samberg worked his way through a plethora of penis jokes -– most notably observing that there has been a “real lack of on-screen d*ck in films this year. Everyone got d*ck shy.”

Samberg went on to roast Hollywood in general with the catchphrase of the day: “F*ck you, Hollywood.” He continued dryly, “you can take your ‘Hangovers’ and ‘Hunger Games‘ and shove it up your ass. You know what I’m talking about, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence,” he joked.

Independent Spirit Awards 2013 Red Carpet Was Such A Breath Of Fresh Air (PHOTOS)

By The Huffington Post News Editors

With stylists, hair dressers, makeup artists and the actors themselves feverishly prepping for the Oscars on Sunday, several Hollywood stars took a much-needed breather on Saturday afternoon for the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards.

The awards show, held at Santa Monica Beach, was a largely casual affair, with big names like Salma Hayek, Kerry Washington and Amy Poehler wearing casual day dressed in bright, cheery colors. Rashida Jones and Nina Dobrev even wore shorts (with high heels, but still).

The exception was Jennifer Lawrence, who showed up wearing a daringly sexy black ensemble by Lanvin that bared more skin than she’s shown at all the previous awards shows combined. Way to be, J-Law.
