Of course both members of our favorite (currently separating) celebrity couple are on successful sitcoms this fall. Of course they are. As a result, Amy Poehler and Will Arnett are everywhere this month, and we feel like we’re trapped in a glass cage of emotion! Take Amy’s ridiculous sweet anecdotes about her little Cheeto babies Archie and Abel for example. “They play like bear cubs. All day long, they roll around,” the Parks & Rec star laughed on Ellen today, adding “They go to the same school and when they say goodbye to each other, it’s like they’re both getting on ships to the new country. They hold hands and kiss each other and say goodbye. It’s so cute.” Gotta…keep it…together. Don’t…cry…over…famous family…you…don’t even…know. Picture…the…Obamas.
Then, just when we think we’ve crammed our inappropriate ball of sadness back down our throats, we stumbled upon the new Up All Night promo featuring Arnett and Christina Applegate:
Over the last 25 years or so, Christina Applegate has proven herself to be more than just another bubbly blonde actress. From her breakthrough role as sexy punk teen Kelly Bundy on Married With Children to holding her own against comedy’s elite as Veronica Corningstone in Anchorman to kicking breast cancer’s ass in 2008 to her most recent gig on NBC’s Up All Night, Applegate clearly has staying power. As she heads over the hill today and turns 40, let’s celebrate her birthday by taking a look back at her most memorable looks. [Photo: Getty Images, Dreamworks, NBC]
Let’s see: vivacious, magnetic, the target of many people’s secret jealousies. Yup, it was the role Nick Cannon was born to play! Nick Cannon joins Up All Night, appearing on the NBC sitcom headed up by Christina Applegate and Will Arnett. Also on the show is SNL alum Maya Rudolph, who plays an Oprah-esque talk show host; Cannon will have a reoccurring role as Calvin, Rudolph’s jovial, charismatic emcee whose popularity she silently resents. We’re not saying they just hired Nick to hopefully get a Mariah cameo. We’re just saying that would have been a genius plan if they did.
Of course, this isn’t Nick’s first time at the acting rodeo; Cannon has ventured into feature films before, like Love Don’t Cost a Thing and Drumline, in addition to his comedy special Mr. Showbiz and hosting gig on America’s Got Talent. Wow, when you lay it all out like that, it sort of makes us secretly resent Nick Cannon. Oh wait, it’s not a secret if we tell everybody. Oh no, we hit Publish! Close out! Close out!
