I Love These Maya Rudolph and Danny McBride Awkward Family Photos

God I’d love for the hilarious Maya Rudolph and the hysterical Danny McBride to be my parents. Think about it… I’d seriously be the funniest person ever!

Why are Maya Rudolph and Danny McBride creating their own Awkward Family Photos? Well, these photos are all to celebrate GQ‘s June comedy issue… OK. The why doesn’t matter because they totally hooked me with the picture of McBride with a huge pee stain.

Plus, there’s a Behind-the-Scenes video!

Genius.

Wise move. Didn’t think Rudolph would want to revive the impression anyway, but I am nonetheless relieved that it doesn’t seem to be on the cards.

Seems credible. 

Rumor: Maya Rudolph to Host SNL Feb 18th

Only seeing this on Tumblr originating from a user with no source, so take it with a boulder of salt for now. 

(Update: fixed mistake, it’s the 18th)

entertainmentweekly:

Anyone who has seen the trailer for Friends With Kids knows that the March 9 comedy could easily be a bizarro-world spiritual sequel to Bridesmaids, what with a cast that includes Kristen Wiig, Jon Hamm, Maya Rudolph, and Chris O’Dowd. But the film boasts even more lovable cast members: Friends With Kids focuses on two friends, played by Adam Scott and Jennifer Westfeldt, who decide to have a child together, platonically.
