Yesterday Kristen Wiig attended the 15th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards with her SNL pals Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph. She looked gorgeous in a white dress as she was photographed arriving to the event. Over 100 pictures from the awards show have been added to our photo gallery!
According to US Weekly (confirmed by practically every other media-outlet), Kristen Wiig is set to guest star on the fourth season of Arrested Development! Vulture then reported that she will play a younger version of Jessica Walter’s boozy matriarch Lucille Bluth. The much-anticipated return of the modern cult classic show will be available on Netflix this May. So many great projects for Wiig, how excited are you for this addition to the show?
According to The Hollywood Reporter (via Spitsider.com), Kristen Wiig and Julia Louis-Dreyfus are at the top of the wish list of book publishers next comedian-turned-author. THR notes that books by male comedians haven’t been doing as well lately – partially because of a lack of said books that stand out and because women tend to buy more books than men. The recent wave of books by female comedians began with Chelsea Handler’s 2005 book My Horizontal Life, with releases from Tina Fey, Mindy Kaling, Rachel Dratch, and Ellen DeGeneres following in its wake. Kristen actually has been asked the question, but answered that she isn’t writing on any books right now. With 6 (!) movies scheduled for release this year, and another one co-written with Annie Mumolo on the horizon; we get why she simply don’t have the time. Would you like to read a book by Kristen?
The production company Voltage Pictures has released some new promotional stills from Girl Most Likely. Kristen Wiig is featured in 7 of them, all of which have been added to our photo gallery. I have also added a few pictures from the filming of the movie on September 13, 2011. Click on the previews below to view them all.
Additional pictures from the public appearances Kristen made in 2007 have been added. This year she promoted Meet Bill (despite having a rather small role in the film) at the Toronto International Film Festival, attended the world premiere and press conference for Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story and more. The 2007-category went from having 10 pictures to the current 67 – quite a bit more, wouldn’t you say?
A few new pictures from the events Kristen attended back in 2006 have been added to our photo gallery. These include the annual American Museum of Natural History Gala and the opening night of “Comix”. Lots of additional photos from more recent years are still to come. Keep checking back for that!
After being the target of speculation for some time, it was announced by director Adam McKay last night that Kristen Wiig is officially on board for Anchorman: The Legend Continues! He wrote ”Kristen Wiig is officially on board for Anchorman 2. Couldn’t be more excited.” That message was followed by a Tweet by co-star Christina Applegate saying “So excited Kristen Wiig has joined our cast for #anchorman2. Going 2 b best movie ever made. Besides the best movies ever made.” It has since been confirmed by every media outlet there is. Kristen will play the wife of Steve Carrell’s character Brick Tamland, no further details have been revealed. Anchorman: The Legend Continues is scheduled for release December 20, 2013. How excited are you for the news?!
