Justin Kirk is returning to HBO.

The Angels in America star has joined the cast of the premium cabler’s Sarah Silverman comedy, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The untitled pilot is described as a comedic look at a pathologically honest woman (Silverman) having a modern midlife crisis. Silverman stars as Jude, an abrasively honest tomboy described as a 21st century woman who works as a video game designer. Kirk will play Stacy, Jude’s paranoid, charismatic and occasionally antagonistic boss at the video game company. 

Smash’s Jack Davenport, Kerri Kennedy and Mark Cohen co-star in the comedy written by Lucy Prebble (Secret Diary of a Call Girl). Prebble, Silverman, Ash Atalla, Amy Zvi and Dan Hine exec produce.

For Kirk, repped by UTA, Management 360 and attorney PJ Shapiro, the casting brings the Golden Globe-nominated Weeds alum back to HBO after he toplined its Emmy-winning miniseries Angels in America, for which he also garnered an Emmy nom.

His credits include Nobody Walks, Mr. Morgan’s Last Love and the upcoming Walter.

For your Emmy award-winning HBO special, We Are Miracles, you rocked a jean shorts-and-tights ensemble. I’d cop that look.
It’s funny, because I’ll say to my boyfriend, “You see what I’m wearing? You’re gonna see a whole bunch of little girls wearing this next year.” I’m wearing what Janeane Garofalo wore in 1995. I like the shorts and tights. I feel super comfortable in them; I feel sexual in them. My thighs are free. I’m not thinking about what they look like in jeans or pants. I also want to bring back the skort. I have one skort that I love. I can be free in it and run if I need to and sit like a regular person. Read the rest of this entry »

Sarah advises Corden’s bandleader

Posted by Gator on March 23rd, 2015

James Corden takes the full-time helm of The Late Late Show (CBS) tonight, and his band leader is going to be Reggie Watts, friend of Sarah and one of the creative partners in their online JASH.com.  In the process of considering the gig, Watts consulted Sarah (as reported by Vulture.com):

Vulture: What finally sparked your decision
to take the job?

R.W.: It’s funny, I had so many conversations with friends and colleagues. And I remember talking to Sarah Silverman about it, and she was really cool. She said, “If you get to be who you are, and you get to ask for a criteria and they meet that criteria, then why not check it out?” So I thought about that. And then I talked to my mom. And my mom was like, [in mom voice] “Well. You never know until you try.”

Vulture: Sometimes all you need is Sarah Silverman and your mom.
R.W.: Exactly.

Sarah will join Sia and No Doubt for benefit

Posted by Gator on March 18th, 2015

HomepagePicThe May 16 “An Evening with Women” benefit for the Los Angeles LGBT Center will feature Sarah, Sia, and No Doubt, along with others yet to be announced. ShalomLife today posted this about the event:

‘An Evening with Women’ started in 2002, and since inception has raised $4.65 million. At this year’s event, Silverman will perform a stand-up routine, while Sia and No Doubt will do an acoustic and unplugged set.“We are so honored to be joining the lineup for this year’s An Evening with Women. We applaud the tremendous work Los Angeles LGBT Center has done over the years in striving to create a community where all people are equal and treated with fairness and dignity. This is going to be a really cool show for us….different than the big plugged-in shows we’ve done over the years, it’ll be exciting to switch it up and play a select handful of songs and bring a scaled down, acoustic vibe to them,” No Doubt said in a statement.“I am so happy and proud to be a part of An Evening with Women again this year, and to honor the excellent work they do for the LGBTQ community of Los Angeles,” said Sia, who also performed at the event last year.‘An Evening with Women’ will take place at the Hollywood Palladium on Saturday, May 16th

The new poster for Ashby includes two different pics of Sarah. The film makes its world premiere in April at the TriBeCa Film Festival in New York City.  Here’s how the festival website describes the movie:

Awkward Ed Wallis (Nat Wolff) needs help fitting in and turns to his neighbor Ashby Holt (Mickey Rourke) for help. Ashby’s unforgiving brand of tough love soon tests their friendship, and it hardly helps when Ed learns that Ashby is a former CIA assassin. Peppered with upbeat music and standout performances, Ashby is a spirited, self-referential update on Harold and Maude for a John Wick generation. With Emma Roberts and Sarah Silverman. 

Another tribute from Sarah about Wittels

Posted by Gator on March 16th, 2015

Here’s how Megh Wright at Splitsider summarized this video tribute to Harris Wittels by Sarah Silverman Program producer, Rob Schrab– which features Sarah singing.

Not long after posting a compilation of Harris Wittels Vines, Sarah Silverman Program co-creator Rob Schrab uploaded a new video yesterday looking back on Wittels’ work and appearances on the show during his time as a writer. Be warned that this video contains a very NSFW snow sculpture as well as a cover of “First Day of My Life” by Silverman that will break your heart and make your eyes a little misty.
