MTV Awards: Sarah among Conan cameos

Posted by Gator on April 16th, 2014

 

Conan O’Brien, hosting the 2014 MTV Movie Awards April 13, started the show with a video bit in which he broke “the record for most celebrity cameos in an MTV Movie Awards open.”  Sarah was cameo #2 (timecode 1:10 to 1:15). Conan catches her brushing her teeth.

No, Sarah is NOT writing a new series for Xbox

Posted by Gator on April 8th, 2014

040814MicroXboxJashPYes, Microsoft this week announced plans for original series programming  through its Xbox television division. But the plethora of postings this week that say Sarah will have an active role in one of those series are spreading inaccurate information.

The original source material for this news appears to be an April 7 Bloomberg article, which stated that one of the new series will be, “ a comedy sketch show [produced] with Silverman and Michael Cera’s JASH comedy collective.”  And that article also placed Sarah’s name in its lead sentence: “Microsoft Corp. is going Hollywood with a cast including comedians Sarah Silverman and Seth Green….” As it is wont to do, the internet then went wild with articles that placed Sarah in the headline or the lead sentence. Misleadingly.

So what’s truth? It is our understanding that JASH has signed to do something for Microsoft/Xbox. But it’s yet unknown which JASH luminaries will actually be creating it. So don’t get your hopes up yet for weekly original content from Sarah. (By our count, if you include the Psychic Friends video, we’ve been getting new Sarah content on JASH every two months.)

Is V to Shining V on your September calendar?

Posted by Gator on April 6th, 2014

Fans know that Sarah is committed to the cause of a woman’s right to choose, and that she consistently (such as last Friday) speaks out against insidious ways some politicians and power-brokers are trying to degrade this right. Below is the plug Lady Parts Justice has on its homepage for the national event Saturday, September 27, during which all supporters of this cause are asked to assemble in their own state capitol. If you’re willing to stand with Sarah, put it on your calendar now.

Wreck-It Ralph sequel moving forward

Posted by Gator on April 6th, 2014

In an interview this week with collider.com, composer Henry Jackman, who wrote the original score for Wreck-It Ralph (as well as for the Captain America sequel), talked about a Ralph sequel.

040614wreckitportCOLLIDER: Have you heard anything about a Wreck-It Ralph sequel?

JACKMAN:  I did, to be honest with you.  I can’t tell you more,  not because I’m being coy, but I believe that it is officially on the  cards.  I don’t know any more other than a story is indeed being  written.  I’d be very surprised not to.  I’m not blowing my own  trumpet.  Forget about the music.  Just the movie itself I thought was  a fantastically imaginative and creative piece of work.  Rich [Moore], the  director, actually got involved in the writing.  There was another writer  and I can’t remember his name (Collider editor’s note: it’s Phil Johnston).  Just as  a concept, it would be almost remiss of them not to write another one.   It’s a great idea and it’s a great character.

Sarah to adopt two children

Posted by Gator on April 5th, 2014

Of course, the operative word missing from that headline is “someday.”  (What a shameless grab at site traffic.)

After their appearance at the Women in the World summit in New York yesterday, Sarah and her sister, Susan, had a follow-up interview during which they talked in greater depth about one of the topics they had mentioned during their WitW talk: international adoption. Two of Susan’s five children are international adoptees, and Sarah said she, too, hopes someday to adopt internationally.

Susan: She’s going to adopt.

Host: Are you?

Sarah: Yeah, I mean, you know– when I’m ready. I’m not– I’m going to be like–

Host: How soon are you going to be ready?

Sarah: I think like early fifties, I’ll adopt a couple sisters from Afghanistan or something. Build a life. But I’m not ready yet. I’ll probably be young grandma age. That’s why I need to stay healthy and strong and stuff.

[Click the pic to see that dialogue, or watch the full conversation here.]

They did go on after that to talk about other topics (Susan about Sarah’s activism as carrying on the tradition of the biblical prophets, a comparison she has made often before; Sarah on the need to stop the systematic chipping away at a woman’s right to choose).  Fans may like the cutely nostalgic moment when Sarah recalls their mom’s having worn a pin advocating “Think globally, act locally” when they were kids.
