Maroon 5’s latest music video is a Pokemon Go parody, because of course it is
Yahoo News - 4 months
Although Pokemon Go might not be as huge as it was a few months ago, it's still one of the top grossing apps on iOS and Android and regularly finds its way into the headlines . Inspired by the game's success, the band Maroon 5 decided to dress up as ripoff Pokemon in the music video for their song "Don't Wanna Know." SEE ALSO:  One of the most popular Pokemon Go map trackers is being revived this weekend Along with being extremely bizarre, the video is surprisingly funny and absolutely jam-packed with celebrity cameos. Ed Helms can be seen running from a group of children about a minute into the video, Sarah Silverman portrays Adam Levine's ex-girlfriend, and there's even an extended outro featuring Vince Vaughn as a Pokemon who's tired of running away. If anything, I'm glad this video exists just so that we know what a Pokemon drinking out of a bottle of whiskey by a pool might look like, because I have a feeling that's not going to be part of the upcoming Pokemon Sun and Moon games.

Movie Review: 'Love the Coopers' -- Not
Huffington Post - over 1 year
It is always good to see Diane Keaton in a film and executive producing at that, but Love the Coopers simply misses. A yearning for saccharin sweetness permeates. Good raw, honest relationships could make a film like this work, but this is not what Love the Coopers is about. This is a pastiche of stories of a family of four generations returning home for a Christmas dinner while you wonder, "When's dessert?" This is a film with many fine actors, but the writing and story by Steven Rogers are the problem. Alan Arkin as Keaton's father is his usual greatness who is in love with a waitress, Amanda Seyfried who is her competent and beautiful self. John Goodman is Keaton's husband who is still smitten with Keaton who wants a divorce after forty years. Ed Helms is unhappily married to Alex Borstein (Getting On) whose part is too small and ill-conceived for her fine talents. Marisa Tomei is Keaton's sister who has been in conflict with her feelings for Keaton which causes Tomei to steal jewelr ...

'The Mindy Project' vs. 'New Girl': Who Wins?
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Have you been watching the third season of "New Girl"? I have. I've been a loyal fan since it debuted in 2011. There was just something so endearing about Zooey Deschanel and her portrayal of Jessica Day (though I get why some would be annoyed by how absolutely precious she can be). I, however, simply thought she was a clumsy breath of fresh air. Fast-forward to now and I have been sorely disappointed, almost from Episode 1 of Season 3. I'm not sure why. Is it because Jess and Nick (Jake Johnson) are a couple? Nope. I love them together and the "I love you"/finger guns exchange on Sunday's post-Super Bowl episode only added to that. Is it because Coach is around but Damon Wayans Jr. is only considered a "Special Guest Star" and not a regular cast member? Maybe. Is it because there has been more Winston (Lamorne Morris) and not enough Schmidt (Max Greenfield), and Schmidt and Cece (Hannah Simone)? Kinda-sorta. I'm always cool with more Winston, but I do miss the Schmidt/Cece romance a ...

The Daily Show's Jessica Williams on Race, Comedy, and Her Role in "Girls."
Mother Jones - about 3 years
Martin Crook/Comedy Central WHEN NICKELODEON canceled Just for Kicks, a 2006 dramedy about a girls' high school soccer team, Jessica Williams, one of its stars, decided she was through with acting and went back to being a student in real life. It didn't last. Before long she was juggling classes at Cal State Long Beach with auditions and sketch-comedy performances. Then, in January 2012, Williams was tapped to play a correspondent on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, the first black woman ever in that role. (Saturday Night Live made news this past week by hiring a black female troupe member for the first time in years.) Thrown into the fray during a crazy election season, the then 23-year-old Angeleno quickly found her footing with bits that play off her youth and race—in "Frisky Business" (see clip below), she argues that if New York City's stop-and-frisking cops really want to catch criminals, they should head over to Wall Street and profile white guys in suits.

Huffington Post - over 3 years
TORONTO — Olivia Wilde kissed her fiancé Jason Sudeikis on the red carpet and then praised him for his portrayal of Marcus Mumford in the Mumford & Sons video, "Hopeless Wanderer."

The actress commented on the video while promoting her new film, "Rush" at the Toronto International Film Festival.

SOME PROBLEMS
Huffington Post - over 3 years
-- "We're the Millers" is an identity comedy with identity issues. Jason Sudeikis plays a pot dealer who, as a disguise for smuggling a huge shipment of weed, forms a fake family to drive an RV across the Mexico border. He gathers local stripper Rose (Jennifer Aniston), surly homeless teenager Casey (Emma Roberts) and his young, naive neighbor Kenny (Will Poulter). The whole concept has two motives: to lampoon the idea of the traditional all-American family, and as an excuse to get Aniston to take off her clothes. Both are worthy endeavors, but everything in "We're the Millers" feels forced – a hodgepodge of comedic rhythms made to lurch from one crude gag to another. Despite obvious comedic talents, Sudeikis and Aniston have each had difficulty finding their place in the movies, and neither really fit their parts: small-time Denver pot dealer (dispatched for the pick-up by Ed Helms' polite but ruthless drug lord) and bitter stripper with a heart of gold, resp ...
