  1. Lex says:

    Wait this is that hot chick from SCREAM 4 and FIVE YEAR ENGAGEMENT? Doesn’t even look like her.

  2. SamLowry says:

    Well, she is 23, so I guess on the Lex Scale she qualifies for AARP membership.

    (…and she was also the ex-GF from Hades in Scott Pilgrim. Gotta get that Pilgrim reference in there.)

    (…and I’m also glad to see her mug does say “Keep Calm and Carry On”–I’m starting to get really tired of The Chive.)

  3. Don R. Lewis says:

    I just met her tonight and am excited to see this interview. Talk about a genuinely NICE and intelligent woman….she’s awesome. So psyched SHORT TERM 12 won the narrative feature award tonight at SXSW too, I’m seeing it tomorrow. I cannot recommend Daniel Destin Crettin’s first feature I AM NOT A HIPSTER highly enough. Seek it out, it’s absolutely not waht you think.

  4. The Pope says:

    Ladies and Gentlemen,
    We give you the next Tracy Flick. Ambition. Youth. Energy. Intelligence. Confidence. Poise.

    And happily, in the eyes of this observer at least, completely lacking the unconscionable morass of self-entitlement that Flick had in abundance. Can’t wait to see how far she goes.

    Nice interview, David. Thanks.

“At one point in the comedy dead zone known as Seth MacFarlane’s Ted 2, the title character—a stuffed toy bear voiced by Mr. MacFarlane—and his dimwitted best friend, John (Mark Wahlberg), visit a comedy club to engage in a favorite pastime: throwing bleak improv ideas at the comics onstage. So, seated in the back of the auditorium while cloaked in darkness, the friends start shouting out suggestions like 9/11, Robin Williams and Charlie Hebdo to the unnerved comics. The topics don’t mean anything to Ted and John, who, like Mr. MacFarlane, take great pleasure in making others squirm. They could have just as easily yelled gang rape, the Holocaust and dead puppies.”
Manohla Dargis on Ted 2

“You never expect a movie to hurt you. Disappoint? Dismay? Depress? Fine. But when a movie has a field day asserting the humanity of a fake toy bear at the expense of your own, it hurts. I was led to believe, in part by the posters, that I was getting a movie about a character who’d be masturbating or urinating with his back to us. They should’ve turned Ted around since the emissions are aimed at the audience… MacFarlane doesn’t appear to believe in anything. He just likes to mess around with things that still have value without seeming to get whether that value is greater than his jokes. It’s as if he doesn’t really know what he’s laughing at or care what race and sexuality and gender are. It’s as if he doesn’t know women or black people — just white comedy writers who love to make fun of them.”
~ Wesley Morris On Ted 2
