Who is jon lajoie dating
Mumblecore is a terrible, misleading name for an awesome independent genre of film: It’s basically improvised high concept films, and Mark and his brother, Jay, are kind of the Kings of Mumblecore (along with Lynn Shelton, who is like The Queen). Katie Aselton is a Former Beauty Queen: Aselton is actually from my neck of the woods (Maine), and in 1995, she was Miss Teen Maine, as well as first runner up in Miss Teen America. I have mixed feeling about Kroll, however, for two reasons: 1) He stole Joshua Malina’s role in the television world and I love Joshua Malina and 2) because Nick Kroll starred in seriously one of the worst sitcoms of the last decade, “Cavemen,” which was based on those annoying Geico commercials. Jeff Schaffer: There’s a reason that “The League” is so similar in structure to “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” The creator, Jeff Schaffer, was also a writer/producer/director on “Curb,” as well as “Seinfeld.” He also wrote the screenplay for Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat (which “Seinfeld” producer/writer Larry Charles directed), as well as the screenplays for Eurotrip and, of all things, The Cat in the Hat 6.
She also attended Boston University, which is where I went to law school, but we never crossed paths, even though we were there around the same time. Mark Duplass: The Film Star: Most people know Duplass from “The League,” but in the indie film world, he’s kind of a big deal. Last year, he and his brother wrote and directed a movie called Cyrus, which starred Jonah Hill as a guy who had kind of a sexual obsession with his Mom, played by Marisa Tomei. But, my favorite Duplass film is Humpday, in which he stars with Joshua Leonard — that guy from Blair Witch Project — as two straight best friends who decide, on a dare, to make a gay porn film together. Paul Scheer: Many of you probably knew Paul Scheer before “The League” as a member of the sketch comedy troupe “The Upright Citizens Brigade,” as well as his role as a creator/writer/star of “The Human Giant,” and as a writer of a couple of episodes of the brilliant Adult Swim series, “Children’s Hospital.” But, did you know that he’s also a regular on the children’s show, “Yo Gabba Gabba”?
They’re is some kind of pansy 8-person league where everybody’s team is stacked with studs, and it’s a snake draft. Anyway, it’s an awesome show, which has featured guests appearances this season alone from Jeff Goldblum, Sarah Silverman, and Seth Rogen.
And F/X yesterday had the good sense to renew show for another season, which means more Nick Kroll, and Nick Kroll is responsible for 30 percent of the sun’s power. And after the jump, I’m going to throw seven more “The League” connections at you that might just blow your mind. Katie Aselton and Mark Duplass Are Married in Real Life: OK.
The comedy team Garfunkel and Oates is composed of two actresses (Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhorne) who have taken to writing comedic songs. Some call them “The female Flight of the Conchords.” Really? These two aren’t CLOSE to being as funny and original as Jemaine and Bret.
The two have been garnering tons of buzz, gathering a legion of fans, and recently scored their own HBO show. The love they are getting is totally baffling to me. I grew up wearing out my parents’ old Tom Lehrer LPs and listening to Monty Python songs on cassette tape.
Shiva the person, played engagingly by Janina Gavankar, under-reacted when she found out that the trophy bore her image in Season 1; she’s returned periodically since then so that the show can absolve itself of wrongdoing by reminding us that she hasn’t been scarred at all by the leagues’ stalkerish bullying.
Last season, Kevin told Jenny that she “is not a girl,” and he meant this as a compliment. She’s cool with porn and rape jokes, too; in general, she doesn’t seem to like other women very much, judging from her catty interactions with Ruxin’s sexy wife and her apparent lack of female friends.
Am I the first one who’s willing to say on the record that the Emperor has no clothes?
The universe of the show is littered with female stereotypes: dumb blondes, angry black women, gold-diggers, cougars, emasculating girlfriends.
Pete once dated a girl who broke his penis during sex—no unflattering portrayal of women, not even the vagina dentata myth, goes unexplored on The only women in the league itself is Jenny (Katie Aselton), Kevin’s wife, who joined in Season 2.
