Sarah’s Happy voice in cartoon short

Posted by Gator on October 23rd, 2014

Sarah voices one of the lead characters in The Unbelievably Sweet Alpacas, a cartoon short that addresses the social concern: Is economic inequality growing? 

In addition to Sarah in the role of Happy, the film features Amy Poehler (Sunshine), Maya Rudolph (Giggles), Sarah Silverman (Happy), Billy Eichner (Lollipop) and Andy Richter (Dough Vanshaw). The cartoon runs a little under six minutes, and is directed by Adam McKay.

Shalomlife reported that the 46 year old director–after spending most of his 20s clueless about the government decisions on trade policy, wages, pollution and war–became interested in economics and finance. “Once anyone starts looking at the underlying economic reasons behind these bizarre choices they make a lot more sense. It doesn’t mean it’s any less frustrating or infuriating but at least I started seeing the dog isn’t chasing his tail just to chase his tail, there’s a liver treat tied to it,” McKay explained.

The Unbelievably Sweet Alpacas is part of a new film series titled We the Economy: 20 Short Films You Can’t Afford to Miss. The series features films that pair comedians with directors, as well as economic advisors, and presents them in an array of different styles and lengths.

Another Million Ways gem as home release nears

Here’s the latest promotional offering from Seth Macfarlane’s movie.


Video: Sarah in Gravy peek

Posted by Gator on August 22nd, 2014



Finally, we get a glimpse of what Sarah will look like in the movie Gravy, which wrapped a while back but has had very few showings yet. Daniel Milder produced a recently posted behind-the-scenes feature which includes interview excerpts with a lot of the stars, including Sarah. (Clicking the pic takes you straight to her segment, or watch the whole video here.)  Looks like it will be fun but plenty gory.

There is “officially” no release date yet for Gravy.

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.

Filming begins on Ashby

Posted by Gator on June 23rd, 2014

062314RourkeRobertsWolffFilming has begun in North Carolina of Sarah’s next movie, Ashby. 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.
