Tina Fey and Amy Poehler just may be the coolest comedians in Hollywood, but the Saturday Night Live alums confessed to HipHollywood during the press day for their latest film Sisters that they weren’t so popular back in high school.  “I was Brinda,” laughed Fey, referring to Maya Rudolph’s nosey and nerdy character in the film. “Let’s face it, I was Maya’s character.”

“I threw a couple of parties, they weren’t ragers,” added Poehler. “A few things happened but nothing too major.”

But in the film the two prove they can throw one heck of a house party right before their parents sell their childhood home.  “It’s this fun experience of who you were in High School can you get back to that, can you recapture that feeling and if you had a party as an adult what would you do differently,” explained Poehler.

And while we were on the subject of who you were in High School, the ladies also hilariously told us what they think some popular celebs were voted back in High School, like Kanye, Beyonce and … Donald Trump. Check it out.

Sisters is in theaters December 18.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs



If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
