“Dr. Horrible” Actress to Star in “Dragon Age” Series

If Olivia Munn is Queen of the Nerds, Felicia Day is their princess. Unlike Munn, who continues to leverage her popularity amongst the vocal techno-savvy community into film and television roles, Day appears to relish smaller genre pieces. On comedy web-series “The Guild,” she became something of a heartthrob for many fans of massive-multiplayer online games. Acting alongside Nathan Fillion and Neil Patrick Harris in Joss Whedon’s web-series, “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog,” she cemented her celebrity. According to USA Today, Day will further expand her digital presence this fall with a new web-series set in the “Dragon Age” fantasy role-playing game universe.

“Dragon Age: Redemption,” a six-part web promotion for developer BioWare’s fantasy-RPG “Dragon Age 2,” will be written and produced by Day, who will also star as an elven assassin named Tallis.

“Tallis is headstrong, she fights dirty, and she has a really sarcastic sense of humor,” Day told USA Today. “I wanted to bring a modern sensibility to a fantasy character in a fantasy world.”

The series is set in Ferelden, the same location as “Dragon Age: Origins” and “Dragon Age 2.” For the shoot, which happened last month in the not-so-mythical land of Los Angeles, Day teamed with director Peter Winter (“Leverage”) and cinematographer John Bartley (“LOST”).

There’s something humble about Day’s commitment to genre work. It’s like in sports when an all-star draft pick commits to a smaller team.

“Just being able to make a Web series that is tied with such a huge property … really the premier role-playing game out there, this is a dream project come true,” Day says.

Crazy, it’s like she genuinely loves video games.

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.

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.
