Pic: Sarah on Ashby set

Posted by Gator on July 31st, 2014


This is the only photo we’ve seen yet of Sarah on set of Ashby. (That’s actor Seth Dousman-Disroe, who posted this selfie from filming in North Carolina in July.) Not a very informative pic, but at least it’s evidence that she really is in the movie.  Well, there is also the recently updated movie poster (below), which now has the names of the four lead actors over the title.


Dan Harmon documentary includes Sarah

Posted by Gator on July 20th, 2014


Sarah appears as herself in the documentary, Harmontown, which should come to theaters this fall. The independent film organization “The Orchard” announced July 14 that it has acquired the North American distribution rights for the movie. According to their press release,  Harmontown “ follows Community creator and writer/producer Dan Harmon on tour for his eponymous podcast series. The film features appearances by Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman, Jason Sudeikis and Joel McHale – among other A-list comics.” We presume Sarah’s appearance is a cameo.

Sarah Limpet role a rumor

Posted by Gator on July 10th, 2014

070814LimpetCoverThe many internet articles saying Sarah will be playing a role in the remake of The Incredible Mr. Limpet are either reprints of or based on a report in The Wrap, which our sources say is premature.

The new film, to be directed by Richard Linklater, will be a mix of animation and live action, like the 1964 version, which starred Don Knotts. Warner Brothers has reportedly been working since the eighties on trying to update the story, which is based on Theodore Pratt’s novel, a “humorous fantasy of a man who is transformed into a talking fish.”  The Wrap article says Zach Galifianakis is expected to star as Mr. Limpet, and names being considered for roles Jon Hamm, Kevin Hart, Danny McBride, Josh Gad, Key & Peele– and Sarah.

Along with Sarah, the film stars Mickey Rourke, Nat Wolff and Emma Roberts (the latter two recently having appeared together in Palo Alto). The movie “charts the relationship between a high school student (Wolff) and a retired CIA assassin (Rourke) who only has months to live.” Tony McNamara wrote the script and is directing.  Principal photography is anticipated to be taking place through mid July. Both Emma Roberts and Nat Wolff posted pics from the North Carolina set this week. No info yet about Sarah’s role.

More Sarah wit in Million Ways press

Here’s what Nerdist posted May 30:

deletemeSarah Silverman and Giovanni Ribisi Talk A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST

By Clarke Wolfe on May 30, 2014

Seth MacFarlane’s new comedy A Million Ways To Die In The West opens this weekend and Nerdist had the opportunity to attend a press conference with two of the stars, Sarah Silverman and Giovanni Ribisi. The pair discussed working with MacFarlane, making a Western and how they would prevent themselves from dying in the West.

“I would definitely bring floss because death creeps in through the gums,” said Sarah Silverman, one of the stars of Family Guy and Ted creator Seth MacFarlane’s latest live action feature, when she’s asked what she’d take back in time to the old west. Her co-star, Giovanni Ribisi, chimed in adding, “Neosporin for infections.”

Once the questions veered away from death, doom and gloom and onto their experience working with MacFarlane on a Western, both actors appeared to light up. Ribisi revealed what it was that attracted him to the project in the first place saying, “Working with Seth and doing a Western because he told me he was going to make it like a classy, John Ford thing and I think visually it is that…” Silverman added, “How about the score too?” which was written by composer Joel McNeely, to which Ribisi replied, “The score! The score is one of my favorites too!”

All in all, it would appear that working with MacFarlane was one of the best experiences both of the actors could have hoped for, which Silverman explained like this: “One thing you can tell I feel like when you watch a Scorsese or Tarantino movie, and I think it’s the same with Seth, [is that] you’re watching something made by someone who is a huge fan of what he is doing. A huge fan of films, he’s a movie fan and he’s a comedy fan and he’s a music fan. When something is made by someone who loves what they’re doing and loves other people in the same genre and grew up on these things that fortified him and now this is what he’s made with what made him. It’s always exciting when you watch movies made by those guys, including Seth, because you know it’s made by someone who just loves what he does.”

Sarah praised as Million Ways opens

Posted by Gator on May 31st, 2014


Here are a couple of reviewers’ comments about Sarah in the just-opened A Million Ways to Die in the West.

[Ribisi’s] a churchgoing virgin, [Siverman’s] the town whore, and their relationship is blissfully bipolar, with Ruth breezing downstairs after committing depraved acts to chastely bill and coo with her boyfriend. The role’s a perfect fit for Silverman, whose onstage schtick balances sweet and sleazy; I say give these two their own movie.

Ty Burr, Boston Globe, May 29, 2014

You can’t have a Western without a whore — they’re as intrinsic to the genre as horses — but Silverman manages to make the role feel novel, even though it’s the natural outgrowth of her persona as the world’s filthiest chipmunk.
