“After college I did summer stock theatre in Northern Wisconsin, and I woke up one day with a squirrel in my bed,” the Chicago-born "Community" alum shares. “It was terrifying. It’s still the scariest thing that’s ever happened to me in my life.”
Salma Hayek and Will Smith are showing off their gray roots as stars prioritize their health over trips to the hairdresser.
"Sonic the Hedgehog" stars Jim Carrey, Ben Schwartz and James Marsden talk about what they learned from backlash over character's initial design.
It’s rare we have to label our interviews NSFW, but things went blue very quickly when Ben Schwartz stopped by Yahoo for a Facebook Live chat about his new film, The Intervention (watch above). In a nutshell, we asked Schwartz (best known for TV’s Parks and Recreation and House of Lies) how he and co-star Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development) prepared for all the heavy petting they’d have to do in the film. The Intervention, by the way, marks the directorial debut of Clea DuVall (Argo) and follows a group of thirtysomething friends who gather for a weekend away with the secret intention of convincing their miserable married friends (Cobie Smulders and Vincent Piazza) to get divorced.
Ben Schwartz went full-on Chris Farley for director Robert Zemeckis. The actor, best known for his television roles on Parks and Recreation (as club-king Jean Ralphio) and House of Lies (as arrogant consultant Clyde Obertholdt), scored not only his biggest dramatic film role yet when he was cast as Albert in The Walk, but it was being helmed by one of his all-time favorite filmmakers. “Robert Zemeckis is kind of my hero,” Schwartz told Yahoo Movies in the video interview above. “My favorite movies of all time are — Back to the Future is No. 1, and then Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
Hey Star Wars fans, Ben Schwartz is about to blow your mind. The former Parks and Recreation actor, who co-stars in The Walk (in theaters now), remained good friends with Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams after working with him on the short-lived 2010 spy series Undercovers. So naturally, when Schwartz dropped by the Yahoo office, we had to ask: Could he give us any juicy Star Wars spoilers?
