16 Most Underrated Performances of 2016

Thrillist named Angela’s performance in “Haters Back Off” as one of the 16 Most Underrated Performances of 2016! 

Fans of The Office must have been thrilled when they learned that their beloved Angela was going to have a more front-seat role in Colleen Ballinger’s maiden Netflix voyage. As Bethany, Kinsey plays Miranda Sings’ single mom who sports a new hair color, works at a grocery store, and complains about fake ailments. Armed with a not-so-subtle wrist brace, the actress nails her poignant part as a flawed parent, one who wants to be the No. 1 Mirfanda of all time, but who does all the wrong things at all the wrong times. Kinsey shines in her ability to elicit genuine laughter and sadness; she deserves more of these sizable opportunities to do so – Source

Netflix has ordered a second season of “Haters Back Off,” based on popular YouTube personality Colleen Ballinger’s oddball character Miranda Sings, for premiere in 2017.

The series stars Ballinger as Miranda Sings, Steve Little as Miranda’s overly confident and utterly misguided Uncle Jim, Angela Kinsey as Miranda’s mom, Bethany, Erik Stocklin, as Miranda’s neighbor and best friend, Patrick, and Francesca Reale as Miranda’s sister, Emily. – Source

Trailer for “Slash”

The fan-fic comedy in which Angela appears in premiered this weekend at SXSW. Check out the teaser trailer below:

About “Slash”:

Writer-director Clay Liford offers a bemused yet sympathetic view of a fan-fiction subculture where Dumbledore and Gandalf might strike erotic sparks with some wizard-on-wizard action – and where Capt. Kirk and Mr. Spock can happily-ever-after while sharing a cunning little cottage built for two – in “Slash,” an effortlessly engaging dramedy that somehow manages to sustain an air of buoyant sweetness even while repeatedly referencing erotic fantasies and sexual anxieties. The sporadic flights of taboo fancy are deftly grounded in a coming-of-age story involving adolescent outsiders who write fan fiction during the process of inventing themselves… – Source

Mini ‘Office’ reunion at the Emmys

Even though NBC’s hit comedy The Office ended two years ago, that doesn’t mean the cast isn’t still friends. Also, it isn’t going to keep at least part of the cast away from awards shows. On Sunday, Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey reunited at the Emmys. To be clear, they didn’t attend the awards show itself, but they did hit up the after parties and you know Michael Scott was feeling left out. Fischer (aka Pam Halpert née Beesly) and Kinsey (aka Angela Martin) are real-life best friends, unlike their characters on The Office, which they proved on Instagram with all of the adorable photos they shared from the Emmys.

The night before the actual awards show, they hit up some pre-Emmy parties, where they also had some mini-Office reunions. To my fellow Scranton and Dunder Mifflin fans, it’s as glorious as it sounds. If that isn’t enough, on Sunday night they had another Office reunion, which just might make those on Team Jim squirm. That’s right, Fischer met up with David Denman, who played Pam’s former fiancé Roy. Don’t worry, they didn’t look super cozy or anything like that. I’m pretty sure Fischer is still very much dedicated to John Krasinski’s Jim.

With that said, check out all of these adorable pictures and enjoy their #BFFEmmyParties fun. – Source

‘The Hotwives of Las Vegas’ cast reveals favorite ‘Real Housewives’ role models

The stars of the satirical Hulu series “The Hotwives of Las Vegas” have revealed the “Real Housewives” on which they based their portrayals.

And one is a shocker – that, gasp, one of the “Hotwives” stars doesn’t watch any “Real Housewives” shows.

Can you imagine?

“Hotwives” launches its second season Aug. 18 on Hulu, which will release a new episode every week.

As part of the drumroll, each actress told TV writers which of Bravo’s many “real housewives” she is aiming to capture.

Casey Wilson (Tawny): “I was kind of a mix this season, Kim Zolciak (‘Atlanta’), maybe some Kenya Moore thrown in with a dash of Phaedra (‘Atlanta’) and Tamra Barney (‘OC’).”

Dannah Feinglass Phirman (Leona): “She’s based on Caroline Manzo from ‘New Jersey.’ Yeah, that’s pretty much what I was going for.”

Danielle Schneider (Shauna): “I kind of had a conglomerate of people. I was going for Shannon from ‘OC,’ who is just a little bird trying to keep up. And then there’s Taylor from ‘Beverly Hills.’ A lot of damaged, damaged ladies.”

Tymberlee Hill: (Phe Phe): “Mine was a mix, too. There was NeNe Leakes (‘Atlanta’) and I threw some Phaedra in there. I also had a big dose of Wendy Williams, who is not a housewife, but is an honorary housewife for all of the traffic she has brought through her show.”

Angela Savage (Veronica): “Yolanda Foster (‘Beverly Hills’) is the launching-off point for my character.”

Erinn Hayes (Callie, new this season, replacing Kristen Schaal’s Amanda): “My character is based on Carlton, from ‘Beverly Hills,’ who is a Wiccan.”

Angela Kinsey: (Crystal): Okay, I don’t watch ‘The Real Housewives.’ So I just tried to be someone who was really important about nothing.”

The Office’s Dwight and Angela had lunch together, and now we celebrate

Jim and Pam might be The Office’s most iconic couple, but Dwight and Angela will forever be the weirdest. Two years after the series finale, stars Rainn Wilson and Angela Kinsey are still good friends, though Wilson looks a lot different than his Dwight days. The two met for lunch this week, and he was sporting a beard that, in his words, is “literally bigger” than Kinsey’s body. If you still miss The Office, you’re going to love the pictures. Take a look!

Heather Graham’s directorial debut casts Angela Kinsey, Molly Shannon (exclusive)

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Angela Kinsey, Chris D’Elia, Jason Lewis and Molly Shannon have all signed up to join Heather Graham in her directorial debut, Half Magic.

As production kicks off, Luke Arnold (Black Sails), Thomas Lennon (The Odd Couple), Alex Beh (Warren) and Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) have also been added to the cast.

Graham wrote the script for the sex comedy and will also star in it as Honey. The story centers on Honey’s goal of finding a man to have “hot sex” with. She makes a pact with her two friends (Kinsey and Beatriz) to shut down the self-doubt that interferes with them getting what they deserve, and the trio set out on a search for self-fulfillment.

The Bubble Factory’s Sid, Jon and Bill Sheinberg are producing the film, which began principal photography on June 4.

“From Lena Dunham to Tina Fey to Amy Schumer, I have been inspired by the powerful, unapologetic female comedy voices paving the way for women in the entertainment industry,” says Graham, whose acting credits include The Hangover Part III, At Any Price, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and Boogie Nights. “With the knowledge and experience I’ve acquired in my two decades in this business, I’m ready to put my own voice forward on a project inspired by the comical liaisons that my girlfriends and I have found ourselves in with respect to love, friendship and womanhood.”

Kinsey is known for playing Angela on NBC’s hit comedy The Office. She currently co-stars on the TBS comedy Your Family or Mine and Hulu’s The Hotwives. She’s repped by UTA, LINK Entertainment and Felker Toczek.

D’Elia stars in the TV series Undateable and previously appeared on the comedy Whitney. He’s repped by 3 Arts Entertainment and Jackoway Tyerman.

Lewis starred as Smith Jerrod on the Sex and the City series. He’s repped by Don Buchwald & Associates and Silver Lining Entertainment.

Shannon is currently filming TV series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp and will next be seen in the Sundance hit Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. She’s repped by UTA, Framework Entertainment and Hansen, Jacobson.
