Knowing that the end is nigh for Parks and Recreation, it’s fun to watch the cast plot their next moves. Chris Pratt is vying for the title of “most charming man on the planet,” Amy Poehler is producing comedy shows, Nick Offerman is making something out of wood (probably), and Aziz Ansari is dipping his toe in the blue waters of public broadcasting.

Ok. So he’s probably not going to become a series regular on Sesame Street, but he did make a pretty cute appearance on the show. And he’s in a huge hat. All good things.

Watch as he teaches kids the word “ridiculous” while wearing a ridiculously tall hat.

To say that Aziz Ansari has a very distinct presence would be an understatement. He’s like a happy child who’s gotten happier by consuming seven Pixie Stix. Then put that sugar-addled monster in a suit. That’s Aziz.

In case you’re not getting the gist, check out this video which features Nasim Pedrad appearing as Aziz Ansari at the very end, in an SNL video that never made it to air. It’s nearly spot on, except the appearance isn’t a perfect fit. Of course, Nasim is a girl, so we should probably manage our expectations.

She did it for Conan, and what we’re left with are huge eyes and a huge smile, which is pretty much what Aziz Ansari is at his very core.

Monkeys Attack In ’30 Minutes Or Less’ Red-Band

Sony has dropped the brand spankin’ new red-band trailer for 30 Minutes or Less. The film stars Jesse Eisenberg as a pizza delivery boy who’s forced to rob a bank by two hick madmen. If he doesn’t perform the task in the time allotted, a bomb strapped to his chest will blow him into the next world (as evidenced by the teddy bear in the trailer). Danny McBride and Nick Swardson play the criminal “masterminds,” while Aziz Ansari plays the best friend with stellar manners when it comes to receiving sexual favors. The film is directed by Ruben Fleischer, the man behind the inventive zombie action-comedy Zombieland.

30 Minutes or Less hits theaters August 12, 2012.

I know you’ve been worried about whether Ray Romano and Queen Latifah will return for the next Ice Age movie. You can stop refreshing the Screen Junkies home page because… *drum roll*… yes, they will be. Time to take a deep breathe, I have to keep reminding myself.

Fox’s $2 billion dollar grossing Ice Age series is coming out with a fourth installment, Continental Drift, a “high seas” adventure. More returning cast members that have been thawed out include Denis Leary, Josh Peck, Seann William Scott and John Leguizamo.

New warm-blooded additions to the cast include Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Lopez, Wanda Sykes, Keke Palmer, Drake and Aziz Ansari. Though I admit Ansari will probably be a great voice actor, I will not pay $38 to see another Ice Age movie in 3D. I’d rather just watch”Parks and Recreation” with my eyes closed and pretend his character’s a squirrel or something.

Continental Drift lazily drifts into theaters July 13, 2012. (Hollywood Reporter)

Way less than 30 minutes, actually. We’re talking seconds.

Below are two new posters to go along with the recently released trailer for 30 Minutes Or Less, starring Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari. It’s based on a true story, but a crazy true story, not one of those bullshit, heartwarming true stories you see advertised every now and again. (I’m looking at you, tail-less dolphin movie.) Eisenberg plays a pizza guy assaulted by criminals played by Nick Swardson and Danny McBride. They strap a bomb to his chest and force him to rob a bank, and somehow his buddy Aziz gets involved. This has all the elements I look for in a comedy: great cast, ridiculous premise, maximum hijinx potential.

The posters feature a scared as hell Eisenberg and Ansari, mid-robbery, as well as the very first intelligent apes from Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Didn’t you know this takes place in the Apes universe? Just like in the true story its based on. (30 Minutes Or Less Official Site)

We finally have a look at Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari in the heist comedy 30 Minutes Or Less. The comedy follows Eisenberg and Ansari’s broken friendship after Eisenberg is rigged to explode unless the duo rob a bank within nine hours.  As predicted, Ansari is the angry guy and Eisenberg is the guy who seems like he might wet himself at any given moment. CALLED DAT SHIT!

What I didn’t see coming was the The Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes cross-over. Those monkeys must be stopped before we’re all slapped in the face with Fate’s cock.

In 30 Minutes Or Less, Danny McBride and Nick Swardson kidnap pizza delivery guy Jesse Eisenberg, and force he and Aziz Ansari to rob a bank. Although we’ve yet to see a trailer, let’s all imagine a slow-motion shot where Eisenberg and Ansari scream as their car jumps a drawbridge. In the meantime, we have the above pictures. Looks like Ansari is playing “Angry Guy,” while Eisenberg plays “Nervous Guy,” McBride plays “Redneck Guy,” and Swardson plays a Juggalo.

These boys don’t know how much trouble they’re in. (Collider)

Aziz Ansari is being called in to add a little extra raunch to Fox’s upcoming raunchy Anna Faris comedy What’s Your Number? Though shooting has wrapped, it was discovered that Faris couldn’t provide enough raunch for the entire movie. The solution is to bring Ansari in to read one line of voice-over.

The comedian has been sought for a voice-over that plays a crucial part in the film’s later scenes. That line, by the way, is “shitty hand job.” All he has to do is roll out of bed, get on an ISDN line, say “shitty hand job,” and then go about his day. Even the movie trailer guys don’t have it that easy. (via The Playlist)

If you watch NBC on Thursday nights you’ve likely seen Natalie Morales deliver a few lines of well-timed sarcasm as Aziz Ansari’s girlfriend on “Parks and Recreation.” Morales, a relative newcomer on the acting scene (her first gig was in 2006), doesn’t have many roles to her name yet, but that hasn’t stopped her from grabbing attention both on and off the screen. She did a brief spot in Oliver Stone‘s not-so-celebrated Wall Street sequel, landed a leading role in the short-lived sci-fi dramedy “The Middlemen” and was featured in Maxim last year.

We’ve reported on Bad Teacher, 30 Minutes Or Less, and Anonymous before. But now we have first looks and better descriptions of the doings that transpire on-screen. Check it.

ANONYMOUS

Set in the political snake-pit of Elizabethan England, Anonymous speculates on an issue that has for centuries intrigued academics and brilliant minds ranging from Mark Twain and Charles Dickens to Henry James and Sigmund Freud, namely:  who was the author of the plays credited to William Shakespeare?  Experts have debated, books have been written, and scholars have devoted their lives to protecting or debunking theories surrounding the authorship of the most renowned works in English literatureAnonymous poses one possible answer, focusing on a time when cloak-and-dagger political intrigue, illicit romances in the Royal Court, and the schemes of greedy nobles hungry for the power of the throne were exposed in the most unlikely of places: the London stage.

You should also note that this drama is directed by Roland “ID4″ Emmerich. The Globe Theatre is so f*cked.

BAD TEACHER

Some teachers just don’t give an F. For example, there’s Elizabeth (Cameron Diaz).  She’s foul-mouthed, ruthless, and inappropriate.  She drinks, she gets high, and she can’t wait to marry her meal ticket and get out of her bogus day job.  When she’s dumped by her fiancé, she sets her plan in motion to win over a rich, handsome substitute (Justin Timberlake) – competing for his affections with an overly energetic colleague, Amy (Lucy Punch).  When Elizabeth also finds hersel fighting off the advances of a sarcastic, irreverent gym teacher (Jason Segel), the consequences of her wild and outrageous schemes give her students, her coworkers, and even herself an education like no other.

Drinking and drugs? I guess it’s no big deal as long as she’s not the Driver’s Ed teacher.

30 MINUTES OR LESS

In the action-comedy 30 Minutes or Less, Nick (Jesse Eisenberg) is a small town pizza delivery guy whose mundane life collides with the big plans of two wanna-be criminal masterminds (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson).  The volatile duo kidnaps Nick and forces him to rob a bank.  With mere hours to pull off the impossible task, Nick enlists the help of his ex-best friend, Chet (Aziz Ansari).  As the clock ticks, the two must deal with the police, hired assassins, flamethrowers, and their own tumultuous relationship.

I see the major plot hole already. When it turns into a hostage situation, they’ll undoubtedly call out for pizza. Well, who’s gonna deliver it? That’s how you end up with dead hostages, my friend. (via Collider)

Aziz Ansari to Deliver in ’30 Minutes or Less’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/aziz-ansari-to-deliver-in-30-minutes-or-less/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/aziz-ansari-to-deliver-in-30-minutes-or-less/#comments Thu, 08 Apr 2010 18:32:57 +0000 Defy Media The director of Zombieland, Ruben Fleischer, is doing a movie about pizza and Aziz Ansari is in negotiations to star. 30 Minutes or Less follows an aimless delivery man who is forced to rob a bank by two goons who strap a bomb to his chest. Ansari would play the poor sap's straight-man buddy, on hand to recommend deep breaths and "stepping back and looking at the situation from a different perspective." So my headline doesn't make complete sense. Sue me. (Don't sue me).  Seeing Ansari in a straight-man role would definitely be a change of pace for the actor. Not that he's a Jim Carrey type, but Ansari has been known to expend physical energy on stage, especially when discussing Coldstone Creamery. Danny McBride is rumored to play the unfortunate pizza pusher, which would set up a nice dynamic. I can already hear McBride putting his unique North Carolina twang on an Indian racial slur. (THR)

The director of Zombieland, Ruben Fleischer, is doing a movie about pizza and Aziz Ansari is in negotiations to star. 30 Minutes or Less follows an aimless delivery man who is forced to rob a bank by two goons who strap a bomb to his chest. Ansari would play the poor sap’s straight-man buddy, on hand to recommend deep breaths and “stepping back and looking at the situation from a different perspective.” So my headline doesn’t make complete sense. Sue me. (Don’t sue me).
