Amy in Ping Pong Summer

Amy Sedaris on the set of Ping Pong Summer

You can catch Amy Sedaris on the big screen in May in Chef, and then again in June in Ping Pong Summer!

Set in 1985 in Ocean City, MD, Ping Pong Summer is a coming-of-age story about a shy 13 year-old white boy who’s obsessed with ping pong and hip-hop. While on a family vacation in Ocean City, he finds an unexpected mentor in their next-door neighbor (played by Susan Sarandon).

Amy plays the shy teen’s aunt. I actually visited the set on the day that Amy was in Ocean City to film her scenes, and she’s hilarious in it. It looks like it’s going to be a really fun flick for the summertime! (By the way, you can click on the photo to view it larger.)

Ping Pong Summer premiered at Sundance to glowing reviews, and will open in select theaters and on VOD on June 6. You’ll also be able to catch it on DVD and Blu-Ray in early August. To find out more, check out the film’s official Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and watch the trailer below (yep, Amy is in it!).

Amy on her role in Jon Favreau’s upcoming ‘Chef’

You’ll be able to catch Amy on the big screen next month in Jon Favreau’s new food truck film, Chef! In the upcoming indie flick about a restaurant owner who loses his job and starts a food truck, Amy joins fellow cast members Scarlet Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo and Dustin Hoffman, among others. Chef releases nationwide on May 9 (though this is an indie, so I’m honestly not sure that it will be playing everywhere). Check out the video below in which Amy talks about her part in the film (she plays a publicist, and everything on her is fake), working with Favreau and Leguizamo, and doing cameo parts in movies.

Amy to Co-Star in Jane Krakowski pilot for Fox!

UPDATED 5/7/2014: Bad news! I’m sorry to say that the Dead Boss pilot did not get picked up.

The Hollywood Reporter just posted some exciting news… Amy Sedaris has signed on to co-star in Dead Boss, a new pilot starring Jane Krakowski for Fox!

Dead Boss is a comedic mystery that finds overachiever Helen Stephens (Krakowski) wrongfully convicted of murdering her boss and forced to rely on her train wreck of a sister to prove her innocence.

Sedaris will play Mary, one of Helen’s nosy, fault-finding co-workers and the gatekeeper to their boss. She secretly loves the man and openly hates Helen.

Keep in mind, however, that this is a pilot… which means that it may or may not get picked up for a full season this fall. Of course, I’ll post anything I find out here, and fingers crossed, we’ll be seeing Amy on TV this fall!
