It’s officially Unofficial “Parks & Recreation” Day here on Pajiba and, to celebrate, we have beautiful naive sophisticated newborn baby Ann Perkins looking like a thousand bucks. I’ve never really gotten the appeal of Rashida Jones but, uh, dunk her in some grease and I guess I’m fully on board. Mine is obviously a very refined palate. (Buzzfeed)
And though I obviously don’t know any of the ins and outs of the Poehler/Arnett split, I’d like to say that Amy looked ridiculously great on The Tonight Show and no matter what happened in their relationship it’s safe to say that somewhere along the line Will Arnett made a huge mistake.
I’d be tempted to have a druid-themed party just so I can have an excuse to put this inflatable Stonehenge in my backyard. Beards and robes and orgies for everyone! (Design Boom)
They’re going forward with the Mary Poppins biopic (aka the PL Travers biopic, but you people don’t know who the f*ck that is so carry on) and Emma Thompson has been cast as the lead. Here’s hoping it’s more Stranger Than Fiction and less Nanny McPhee. (TMS)
On the flippity flop of that particular Mittastrophe are these new albino smurfs who will be making their debut in the upcoming sequel. Nightmare fuel? I think so. (io9)
Speaking of the stuff that bad dreams are made of, have you bought your copy of Cabin In The Woods yet? No? WHAT KIND OF PAJIBAN ARE YOU? Well, the kids over at FSR listened to the commentary so you don’t have to. (But you should.) (FSR)
Because it’s not fair if I show you a greasy Ann Perkins and no male eye candy, here is the delicious Javier Bardem thankfully not sporting the blonde hair he’ll be wearing in the upcoming Bond flick. (Celebitchy)
Speaking of eagerly anticipated films, I could not possibly be wound any tighter waiting for the release of Les Miserables. Happy Chrismukkah to me! H/T to nosio for this fantastic in-depth look at the actors singing on the set. Suspiciously we don’t hear a single note from Crowe… (Bleeding Cool)
Finally, all the talk of Aimee Mann yesterday made me want to share this sketch from the fantastic Minnesota show WITS with you. In it Mann and dapper podcaster extraordinaire Paul F. Tompkins compete in a movie-themed game called Clash Of The Hollywood Weirdo Titans. If you get bored early on and don’t make it to the theme for EMU ATTACK*, it’s your loss.
