I love playing Leslie Knope, but she says SO many words, and she does talk so much, that sometimes I think my mouth is gonna break. But she does do a lot of talking. I would love for somebody on the internet to figure out how many words Leslie Knope has actually said.
Someone on the internet can do that, right?
It was really fun… that was early on in the show, I just remember laughing, just like I do at everything Chris Pratt does. He’s genius.
First of all, this person assumes that I would fight Nick Offerman in a physical way. They are wrong. I would destroy him mentally.
I would get into that complex, wood-covered mind of his, and rip him to Shreds. And if this is Nick Offerman - nice try, buddy!
I’m coming for you!
Well, uh, let’s see. I think there’s a little bit of everybody in their characters, but we aren’t all annoyed by Jim O’Hare. So when the character of Jerry comes around, we all can’t wait for him to get out of there, but when Jim goes around, we only want him to stay. But Joan Callamezzo, the character, is based on Moe Collin’s life. JUST KIDDING!!!
1) Oh!! Just the idea of connecting with some people, and just answering letters and questions that come in to us. Simple as that.
2) Ha! Well, in very exciting news, there was a moment of time where Daniel Radcliffe and I were in the same building. And I am a HUGE fan of his work, and I think he’s an awesome actor. That being said, unlike Leslie, I have never read the books! I have 2 young sons and I am looking forward to doing that with them soon.
3) Adam Scott smells like… lemons and possibility. Future and peppermint. Loyalty and vanilla ice cream.
Um: hmm. Well, that’s a good one. Maybe ” Pay attention to what people do, not what they say.”
1) Yes! First of all, rest in peace, Lil Sebastian, he will always be in our hearts and minds.
And Smart Girls is growing by the minute, we are getting ready to launch new programming in the next few months under the Legendary Umbrella! And I started Smart Girls just with the small idea of creating a show, a fun show that started with a dance party and celebrated young people being themselves, and it’s grown into a bigger idea, and hopefully, kind of, you know, in its own way, a tiny movement.
I was able to collaborate with the creator Mike a lot, and we really worked together in many ways to make Leslie who she was, and because there’s such good writing on the show that she becomes such a great character.
And she’s like me, but she works… we’re like each other, I should say, but I think I’m - I don’t think I’m as, I think I’ve become a little bit more cynical than her. I think she reminds me to keep an open mind and to go big or go home.
Awww! Thank you Chile! I love you! And so does Horatio Sanz, who’s from Chile! that’s a great question, and yes, as we move forward with new content at Smart Girls, we are excited about opening up in an international way and providing content for all over the world. I love that you care enough to ask that, and I hope to be providing more content for you very soon. Rapido!
They were all fun for different reasons. Sometimes when writing the history of UCB< or the times at SNL were fun, because they reminded me of all those stories, and I would start laughing thinking of all the ridiculous people I surrounded myself with. I was just texting with Fred Armisen, and telling him that i wrote nice things about him int he book, and he was very touched, and then I reminded him that his lawyers made me do it, and I said “His lawyers will sue you if you don’t write nice things about him in your book.”
Okay, who cares about waffles?
What a beautiful post.
Thank you for sharing that with me. That was really nice. and you sound like the kind of person that will find a lot of love and happiness in your life. Because you’re not afraid to be vulnerable, and you’ve gotten stronger in tough times.
I love the image of you huddled in the bathroom. We’ve all been there. I can’t wait to see - I wish I could see what happens in the next 10 years. I can tell you’re a special person with lots of good things ahead.
