JULY 26 – Anna Guest Stars on ‘Comedy Bang Bang!’
Watch Anna Kendrick Time Travel on Comedy Bang! Bang! This Friday at 10/9c
As anyone who has seen Back to the Future, Hot Tub Time Machine or Looper knows, there are rules when it comes to time travel. They are pretty easy to remember, too: Don’t change anything and don’t let any robots come from the future with the intention of killing John Connor’s mother. Unfortunately, Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick apparently hasn’t taken Doc Brown’s lessons to heart and clearly hasn’t seen The Terminator because on next Friday’s episode of Comedy Bang! Bang! she tells host Scott Aukerman about how she broke all the rules during her recent time traveling adventures.
Watch Anna Kendrick learn a valuable lesson about respecting the rules of time travel and even though you want to skip through time to Friday at 10/9c so you can watch the full episode, just wait, okay?
Reggie Makes Music with Anna Kendrick
Everyone loves Anna Kendrick and everyone loves Reggie Watts and everyone really really loves Destiny’s Child, so a song by two of them about one of them is a formula for success.
In the latest installment of Reggie Makes Music – Reggie Watts’ web accompaniment to Comedy Bang! Bang! – Anna and Reggie sing about their shared love of Beyoncé’s pre-Beyoncé group Destiny’s Child and try to figure out what role they would play if they were in the group. We’d probably all be Kelly with Beyoncé dreams, right? After watching Pitch Perfect, we all knew that Anna Kendrick can sing, but it’s still a nice surprise to watch her sing in key about Destiny’s Child while Reggie loops and adds his synth sound effects to the track.
Watch Anna and Reggie sing now and then tune in for a new episode of Comedy Bang! Bang! this Friday at 10/9c:
July 27 – Anna to Attend Celebration of Dance Gala
Christina Applegate and Anna Kendrick will be among the guests at the 3rd annual Celebration of Dance Gala in Los Angeles on July 27.
The ‘Anchorman’ star, who married her long-term partner Martyn LeNoble in an extremely intimate ceremony in front of just six guests, including their daughter Sadie, two, in February, will be one of the presenters at the star-studded charity event, which will take place at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion at The Music Centre, in association with the Dizzy Feet Foundation (DFF), later this month.
‘Glee’ stars Darren Criss and Jenna Ushkowitz, British actress Minnie Driver and ‘Dharma & Greg’ star Jenna Elfman will also be on hand to help recognise actress and singer Chita Rivera, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group’s President of Production, Erik Feig, and Dance Theatre of Harlem Founder, Arthur Mitchell, who will be honoured with the second ever Gene Kelly Legacy Award.
Christina will present the DFF Inspiration Award to Chita, while Erik will receive the DFF Impact Award from ‘Pitch Perfect’ star Anna.
The gala will include entertainment from professional performers from ‘So You Think You Can Dance’, ‘Dancing With the Stars’ and the ‘Step Up’ movies.
All proceeds from gala ticket sales will benefit the Dizzy Feet Foundation, a non-profit organisation that supports dance education programs for children from low-income families.
