Biz Break: Two More Celebrity TV Couples Divorce, Citing Will Arnett and Amy Poehler's Inspiration

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | October 2, 2012 | Comments ()


Brad Hall, Julie Louis Dreyfus' husband and former Saturday NIght Live cast member, will guest on "Parks and Recreation." He'll be playing an architect who designs new plans for the Pawnee parks. In other news, when did Brad Hall get so old?


Meanwhile, in divorce news, the Amy Poehler and Will Arnett of frequent television guest stars, Melanie Lynskey and Jimmi Simpson, have filed for divorce.


Breckin Meyer also divorced his wife, Deborah Kaplan, who directed him in Can't Hardly Wait. Can't we all just love each other?

David Letterman is trying to cajole Mitt Romney into coming onto his show by imploring all of his viewers not to vote for Romney unless he comes on.

Bryan Fuller denies it, but both Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter are reporting that NBC is not moving ahead with his "Munsters" reboot, "Mockingbird Lane," which would've starred Portia de Rossi as Lily Munster and Eddie Izzard as Grandpa Munster. Despite it being a reboot, I'm actually disappointed by this news as it seemed that Fuller had a dark and bloody take on the characters.


Ryan Murphy, who already has "Glee," "American Horror Story," and "New Normal" on television is developing two more series, including "Montuak," a conspiracy thriller for Fox, and an unnamed comedy for NBC.

Old folks may want to take your heart medication before I reveal that Miley Cyrus is in talks to play the female lead in "Bonnie and Clyde," a lifetime series based on the 1930s outlaws.


In less upsetting casting news, Natalie Portman is being eyes to play the lead in Jackie, a feature film that centers on Jackie O in the aftermath of JFK's assassination.

    Amy was probably pregnant, hence the swollen ankles. And Amy Poehler isn't funny because 'women aren't funny.....blah....blah....blah...." Fuck off men! Gotcha back Amy

  • googergieger

    Hey, D-Ro. When you turkeys gonna star talking about Park Chan Wook's Stoker? I.E. the greatest movie of 2013.

  • DarthCorleone

    I saw Breckin Meyer and Deborah Kaplan at the Fedex.

  • Jannymac

    I've worked in television for a lot of years, so it's rare for me to feel like something is. just. wrong. Miley Cyrus as Bonnie? NO,

  • Snath

    Noooooo Mary Lightly! WHY YOU GOTTA GET DIVORCED.

  • fribbley

    If this frees Portia up to go make more episodes of Better Off Ted, than I am for it.

  • Ginger

    Whoa, I did not realize that Amy Poehler had cankles. It's really true that nobody is perfect! She gets pretty damn close, though.

  • badkittyuno

    Breckin Meyer is getting divorced? Now I'm going to have to leave my husband in order to fulfill a promise to my 13 year old self (the one who swoons all through Franklin & Bash...)

  • Pookie

    I just don’t get the fascination with Poehler, in a pinch she might be serviceable as jerk-off material.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Pookie, I find myself agreeing with you there, buddy.

  • David Sorenson

    A bit crude, but I bet I can get more downvotes than that.

    I really don't think that Amy Poehler is very funny.

  • David Sorenson

    I said I wanted downvotes. Not upvotes. Who's the wisenheimer?

  • John G.

    "Damn Natalie, you a crazy chick
    Yo, shut the fuck up and suck my dick"

  • zeke_the_pig

    Who the fuck is downvoting this. I don't understand, and I refuse to understand, hence no question mark.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I am happy about this Melanie Lynskey news as I can now slightly more plausibly fantasize about her and me and the quirky alpaca farm we will own together.

    Judge not, guys.

  • kushiro -

    I agree with the sentiment, only it's going to be her and me, and we're moving back to her homeland and operating a kiwi rescue center.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    Dude, I thought the fantasy dibs were implicit. We'll give our alpacas laser eyes and come after your fantasy.

  • kushiro -

    Sorry, you'll never get them through customs. You can't get even sneak a tiny orange past those bastards. Have fun with your laser eyed beasts while at Sam & Mel's Kiwi House it's 24 hour cuddling and comically large eggs.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    They're not beasts, they're the cutest camelids ever. And your puny customs are no match for our alpaca-packed stealth zeppelin. Our cuddles take place at 5000 feet, while clad in the softest alpaca wool sweaters ever, basking in the distant glow of roasting little bird things.

    Also I have a population of rabid, retarded monkeys in a moonbase and they're just itching for an excuse to foamy-Shakespeare up some Death Star tech.

    Foamy-Shakespeare: The process by which you employ a warehouse full of random technological bits and rabid monkeys-- of lower than average monkey-intelligence-- to eventually (because statistics) create wildly improbably science-fiction devices with which to achieve world domination or a cozy fantasy life with a certain lovely New Zealander.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Who the hell is Brad Hall?

  • Archie Leach

    I guess it would matter to me if I even knew who any of these people are.

  • kushiro -

    I am sad because the Melanie Lynskey marriage is the basis for my only real brush with celebrity (Hollywood category).

  • Brown

    Getting dropped by NBC probably means it would have been good.

  • BrassCupcake

    At least now the McPoyle will be free to huff Pledge and drink warm milk at his leisure.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Who needs women when you've got showers with your brother

  • kushiro -

    Based on the evidence presented here, women who tilt their heads to the left in photos are extremely likely to get divorced.

    Watch out, Natalie Portman!

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Lifetime is making a Bonnie and Clyde series? They know how that story ended...right?

  • David Sorenson

    Don't you dare spoil it for me!
    - soon to be said by the sort of person that would watch a Bonnie and Clyde show on lifetime that stars Miley Cyrus.

  • Brown

    I know. It's like who would make a movie based on the Titanic?

  • Natallica

    I don't blame Deborah Kaplan. I mean... he's wearing a cardigan. With a tie. A shiny one. Just no

  • It was inevitable that one day she'd wake up, see that she was with Brecken Meyer, and it would end quietly, the way you give your feeble, tumor-ridden old dog a nice steak dinner, gather all around for one last scratch under the chin, and quietly stick in the needle. Mercy killing 101.

  • BLA

    How many actresses have portrayed Jackie O in major productions? I propose a best to worst post before Lindsay Lohan gets into the game.

  • I am surprised that I am disappointed in the Mockingbird Lane news. At first, I was was disdainful of a "gritty reboot" of The Munsters, but I found the idea of Eddie Izzard as an immortal mad scientist/vampire really interesting.

  • dizzylucy

    I felt the same, but when I heard Bryan Fuller and Portia De Rossi, I was in.

  • Stephen Nein

    I'm deeply disturbed by the Mockingbird Lane news. If turns up that Izzard is responsible for this crash, we'll be sending him plenty or arsenic-laden goodies.

  • Socrates_Johnson

    Eddie Izzard visited my friend's mother on her deathbed, and so gets a pass from on any career decisions he makes.

  • MrFrye

    With that hair and makeup, Miley looks like she be on Toddlers and Tiaras.

  • David Sorenson

    She starred on a disney channel show with her dad. It's practically the same thing.

  • Anna von Beav

    I hate Miley's hair like that so much.

  • Kala

    That goddamn "edgy" hair makes me want to punch her through her face.

  • Edwina the Magnificent

    I kind of, yes, maybe more than kind of, like that hair *ducks* but the fact that it's on her head makes me not like it.
