Tina Fey and the ‘Taliban Shuffle’

Disney's 'Muppets Most Wanted' Los Angeles Premiere

Tina Fey is heading to Kabul.  Her new movie, ‘Taliban Shuffle,’ is based on the wartime memoir by journalist Kim Barker.  The same writing/directing team is tapped to do this as did Crazy, Stupid, LoveGlenn Ficarra and John Requa.  Fey is producing along with Lorne Michaels.  

The book told of Barker’s arrival as a fish out of water in Kabul, filing stories about militants, being a woman in wartime Iraq and Pakistan, dealing with boredom interspersed with dashes of violence and the promiscuous war-correspondent culture.

I love Tina Fey and think she’s incredibly witty and talented.  She’s also hot. I can’t believe how great she looks.  She seriously gets hotter with age.

Nancy Pelosi Will Be On 30 Rock!

Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader, is branching out from politics!

The politician landed a coveted role in the final episode of 30 Rock! And hey, don’t go worrying about her appearance taking time away from her fiscal cliff responsibilities… the hour-long series finale was tapped back in mid-December while the senate was significantly less busy.

And why did Mrs. Pelosi decide to make an appearance on the show? She said the choice was clear, and that “she would do almost anything Tina Fey asked her to do.”

Wow!  Don’t abuse this power, Tina.  FOR REAL!

Also (and way less more notably)  Ice T will be making an appearance on the series finale.  So…Nancy and Ice T… what will be the plot? Where will these two fit in? AHHH! I can’t wait to see this final episode…can YOU?

Why did Tina Fey skip out on Lindsay Lohan’s ‘SNL’ performance?

Lindsay Lohan and Tina Fey go way back. Lindsay starred in Tina Fey’s “Mean Girls” back in 2004, and the ’30 Rock’ comedian has been one of Lindsay’s biggest supporters over the years.

Tina was reportedly planning on being there for Lindsay on Saturday night during her hosting gig, she even intended on appearing in Lindsay’s monologue. Instead she had to stay home with sick kids.

“Tina was committed to doing the monologue with Lindsay but both of her children got sick,” a rep for Fey told the paper. “She was unable to participate as planned.”

Lohan received mixed reviews for her performance on “SNL,” which drew a high number of viewers and was the second-highest-rated episode of the season.

Jon Hamm and Melissa McCarthy in talks to star in new Judd Apatow film!

Following the huge success of their comedy ‘Bridesmaids’, director Paul Feig and producer Judd Apatow were immediately given the green light by Universal to start working on a new film. While a ‘Bridesmaids’ sequel is in the works, so is another film starring the scene-stealing Melissa McCarthy and Jon Hamm.

Deadline reports that Feig and Apatow are in the early stages of putting together a new comedy that would potentially star Jon Hamm and Melissa McCarthy as “unconventional lovers.” Deadline’s report pegs the plot as about a man who becomes obsessed with a woman, which while vague, would offer Hamm all sorts of avenues to show off the comedic skills that are finally coming to the forefront. Negotiations are in the early stages.

Hamm, as Kristen Wiig’s jerk semi-boyfriend, and McCarthy as her quirky yet no nonsense fellow bridesmaid, nearly stole the show from the writer/star in the May smash hit comedy. It was the biggest stage yet for their respective comedic talents; Hamm, who plays the very serious Don Draper on “Mad Men,” is a frequent guest host on “Saturday Night Live,” and had an arc as Tina Fey’s “in the bubble” boyfriend; McCarthy is one of two leads on the CBS sitcom “Mike & Molly.”

The new Feig/Apatow film would be each actor’s first big screen lead; Hamm has translated his small screen success to into supporting roles in films such as “Sucker Punch,” “The Town,” and “Howl,” while McCarthy, a “Gilmore Girls,” alum, has had roles in “Life As We Know It,” and “The Back-Up Plan.”

Hamm will also be expanded his career to behind the camera work, as he’s slated to direct the season five premiere of “Mad Men.”

As for Apatow, this is another semi-spinoff for the megastar director/producer; he’s also in the process of putting together a Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann-starring “Knocked Up” spinoff.

I am the biggest Judd Apatow fan, so I’ll see any movie he makes. “Bridesmaids’ is probably the funniest movie I’ve seen in years!
