Todd Margaret: Meet the Cast

Todd Margaret: Meet the Cast (photo)

Posted by on

It’s Friday, which around these parts means it is Todd Margaret Day. The second episode of The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret airs tonight at 10 p.m. ET. Last week we saw Todd impress his boss, break up with his fake girlfriend, feed his cat, and head off to London to prepare to flood the market with energy drinks. Is Todd up for the challenge? Of course not. Tonight, crack open a Thundermuscle, sit back, and relax with the next installment of Todd Margaret. Until the Thundermuscle kicks in and you wind up running in circles around the room.

Before tonight’s episode we wanted to take a moment to introduce the stellar cast that makes up Todd Margaret. There are some old friends and familiar faces on board, but unless you spend a lot of time watching television on the other side of the pond, you may not recognize everyone. Yet.

David Cross is an Emmy Award winner and Grammy Award nominated stand up comic and actor. But he is best known for his portrayal of world’s worst therapist Dr. Tobias Funke in Arrested Development(which, by the way, is also on IFC tonight, starting at 10:30 p.m. ET)

Amber-Tamblyn-todd-margaret-IFC.jpg

Amber Tamblyn started her acting career in cult favorite Joan of Arcadia for which she was nominated for an Emmy. Most recently she starred in the underappreciated cop show The Unusuals and rumor has it she will be joining the cast on medical mystery show House. (Hey Amber, pro tip: It’s not lupus.)

If you haven’t seen the BBC’s The Inbetweeners, you are not truly living. If you have been watching the show, you will recognize Blake Harrison as Neil, the lovably lunk-headed mate of the hapless high schoolers in the show.

Sharon-Horgan-Todd-Margaret-IFC.jpg

Sharon Horgan may be unfamiliar to most Americans, but in England she has her own award-winning BBC comedy show, Pulling, which she co-wrote with Dennis Kelly. She also appeared in Ricky Gervais’ brilliant comedy series Extras.

She’s hard to recognize when she’s clean, pretty, and not pregnant, but Todd Margaret’s neighbor is played by Sara Pascoe. She is an accomplished stand-up comic and theater actress and has appeared in cult BBC shows The Thick of It (which you can’t see on BBC America) and Being Human (which you CAN see on BBC America, you know, when you’re not watching IFC).

will_arnett-todd-margaret.jpg

Will Arnett is well known for role as GOB Bluth in Arrested Development and guest spots on 30 Rock. He is currently starring in Running Wilde, which reunites him with Arrested Development‘s Mitch Hurwitz and, occasionally, David Cross.

The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret’ airs tonight at 10 p.m. ET

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
