Judd Apatow on possibility of directing film starring daughters, debunks old “Sherlock Holmes” rumor


Posted by on

Judd Apatow might have seemingly created a family of comedians that he loves making films with, but he also loves to incorporate his family into his movies. His wife, Leslie Mann, has appeared in six projects he’s worked on, while his two daughters, Maude and Iris, star in three out of the four films he’s directed. In fact, Apatow recently told IFC that he chose bring those three back to reprise their roles in his “Knocked Up” sequel, “This Is 40,” because they were the family he most liked in the movies he’s created.

So as Maude, 14, and Iris, 9, get older, their involvement in their father’s films begs the question whether or not he’d chose to one day make a movie for them to star in. Apatow said he’s not ruling the idea out.

“You never know,” he said in an interview Friday at Seth Rogen‘s Hilarity for Charity event, which raised money for the Alzheimer’s Association. He added that it seems like a feasible option because “I don’t like meeting new people.”

One project that he definitely won’t be working on any time soon is the rumored “Sherlock Holmes” movie starring Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen. It was first announced back in 2008, but details about the alleged collaboration have been scant ever since. Apatow explained that that’s because the movie was never actually happening.

“That’s always something that’s out there that just isn’t correct,” he said. “If you think about it, it doesn’t seem to make sense.”

That may be true but, as we told him at the time, that’s the reason we were intrigued by it. May we be the first to suggest a “Sherlock Holmes” reinvention with Maude and Iris as Sherlock and Watson, respectively? Who’s with us?

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.
