I really hope her character isn't essentially a female Brick.

One of the best female comic actors working in Hollywood joining the sequel to one of Hollywood's best comedy films? Today is a good day.

Ahhh that does sound great, and she is great but....


I love lamp

I can only assume the reason that she has not starred in a a blockbuster comedy since bridesmaids is that she's writing herself another film. I'd love to see a Wiig, Pohler & Fey fronted film.

Am I really the only one who finds Wiig very... blah?

no, no you are not alone!
