With the news that Amanda Peet will be joining Hank Azaria on IFC’s new baseball comedy Brockmire, we thought it high time to look back at some of her career highlights. A leading lady with dramatic chops, Peet can do it all, but she’s always excelled when she can let her inner screwball loose. Here are a few of her funniest roles to date, to give you just a taste of what she’ll be getting up to when Brockmire premieres in 2017.

5. Judith, Saving Silverman

Peet played the ultimate girlfriend from hell in this 2001 comedy that featured one of Jack Black’s early film roles.

4. Tina Morris, Togetherness

Peet earned critical acclaim in this HBO comedy about friendship and marriage as Tina, a flighty vagabond hoping to make her fortune selling bouncy houses.

3. Joan, The Way Way Back

Her role as a cheating wife on vacation allowed Peet to showcase her comedic chops, in this coming-of-age dramedy written by the Oscar winning duo Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (The Descendants).

2. Paula, Sleeping With Other People

Peet played the woman Jason Sudeikis isn’t meant to be with in this edgy 2015 rom-com.

1. Jill, The Whole Nine Yards

An early hit for the actress, this comedy about nosey neighbors and mobsters featured the unlikely pairing of Bruce Willis and Matthew Perry and helped make Amanda Peet a star.

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.
