Things We Saw Today: The Book From Hocus Pocus

Holly Conrad of Crabcat Industries (you might also know her from Syfy’s Heroes of Cosplay) created a replica of Winifred Sanderson’s book from Hocus Pocus for a friend’s wedding. And I want it so bad. She sculpted, cast, and painted it while Hilary Grimes bound it into an actual book. I mean, boooooOOOOOOOk!

Kristen Wiig Expands On Why She Turned Down Bridesmaids 2


In case any thought of a new Bridesmaids movie still existed, we can put another nail in the sequel’s coffin. Despite the great success of 2011′s original comedy, Bridesmaids, writer and star Kristen Wiig has said that she will not be writing a sequel.  With costar Melissa McCarthy in the new Buddy-cop comedy The Heat, helmed by Bridesmaids director Paul Feig, the creative forces behind Bridesmaids are certainly in the spotlight again, which means that once again Wiig’s been asked about her decision not to create another installment in the series as she moves on with her career, by Harper’s Bazaar.

The good news is, we might see a female James Bond-type character soon. The bad news is, it’s going to be a comedy and probably won’t spawn twenty or so films.

Get Ready to Feel Old: The Vanity Fair Freaks and Geeks Reunion Photoshoot

I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news, but there are children born after the final episodes of Freaks and Geeks aired, following a fan campaign to get three unaired episodes onto television, who are probably already preparing for their Bar and Bat Mitzvot.

Look… I’ll just leave you with some of the pictures from Vanity Fair’s photoshoot. There are lots more at their gallery, and they’ve also got a bunch of never before seen set pictures, a history of the show from the actors and creators, and creator Paul Feig explaining what would have happened in the never-made season two.

Buddy Cop Comedy The Heat Just Made Its Way On To My To-Watch List [VIDEO]

Watching this trailer for The Heat got me intrigued. Sure, a by-the-books professional forced to work with an unconventional rebel isn’t all that new a concept, but it looks funny, and that’s the important part. Plus, it’s a female buddy cop movie. Co-starring Melissa McCarthy as a detective and Sandra Bullock as a no-nonsense FBI agent. (Those are the best kind.) And because I think it deserves yet another mention: Female buddy cop movie.

And Now For Something Completely Different

McCarthy — Bullock — They’re Cops (In a Buddy Cop Movie From the Director of Bridesmaids)

Ask me how I resist posting about a buddy cop movie starring Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock. Go ahead, I’ll wait while you craft the perfect question … Never mind, I’m just going to answer you: I cannot resist posting about it. I am writing two stories about women in comedy today, and you’re just going to have to deal with it, because this is great news. This is a buddy cop movie starring two women as cops, and that is new and exciting. It’s also being directed by Paul Feig, who also directed Bridesmaids, and if all of this means that McCarthy and Bullock use unconventional bathroom furniture as toilets, then sign me up. It won’t, because that was part of the screenplay, so Feig had little to do with that. But the screenplay was written by Parks and Recreation co-showrunner Katie Dippold, so… Holy crap, this is truly exciting.
