Misc: The Word XIII

Not much to post lately! According to Knope Knows, filming of Parks and Recreation Season 2 has started and besides that she's been laying low.

I Love You, Man came out on DVD and Blu-Ray this past week. Somebody has posted the gag reel on YouTube...

"Harsh frickin toke, dude"
Part 2 is here

She did an interview with IGN to promote the release:
Jones on Being in Love
IGN: Judging by the gag reel on this DVD, you guys look like you had a good time on the set.

Jones: Yeah, it kind of set the bar pretty high for a standard of fun while working. Which, I guess, is a good thing. Maybe it's not a good thing in the long run, but at the time it's literally the most fun I've ever had on a shoot ever. There were days when I wasn't working when I would go to set to hang out.
IGN: It does seem you're doing a lot of straight-women roles these days.

Jones: Yeah. Parks and Recreation is my third consecutive job like that. The first being The Office and then I Love You, Man. But the nice thing is that I do truly believe there's got to be a certain equilibrium in comedy. And if you're watching a movie and you're responding to the outlandish character, you're really seeing the movie through the eyes of the straight person. So hopefully, if I'm doing my job correctly, everybody's laughing. And maybe people aren't necessarily thinking I'm the funniest one, which is totally fine. But I do think there's a certain essential need to have that person. ... And listen, it's nice for me because it's very close to who I am. I have a lot of funny friends and I get to participate in the comedy with them, but I'm not over-the-top or whatever. One day it might be nice to do something where I'm just balls to the wall, just crazy.

8/14: Celebrity hairstylist’s newest salon already star-studded
A brief mention as a client of "celebrity hairstylist" Ted Gibson. I guess he did her new look?

By Jeff Dufour and Kiki Ryan (Washington Examiner)
He only opened his newest salon [in Chevy Chase] a few months ago, but already Ted Gibson is living up to the “celebrity” part of his “celebrity hairstylist” tag.
Speaking of the White House, another celeb who has some familiarity with 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. is actress Rashida Jones. She, too, has trusted her hair to Gibson’s shears, no doubt when she’s the plus-one to chief speechwriter Jon Favreau, whose arm she’s frequently been spotted clutching.
