”(…)Amy sat peacefully with children on her lap and in her arms at the Toy Library. She observed the children and figured out who needed some touch and affection. I hardly saw her without a child or two nestled into her body. She played hand games, painted and danced. She cuddled and tickled the children. Any time the music came on, you could see her moving her hips and raising her arms. In fact, on the soccer field one day, she was the DJ. She was completely in the moment and by the end of the week, she was not eager to leave and clearly emotionally transformed by what she had seen and heard.” | Dr Jane Aronson: Amy Poehler in Haiti (x)
For last year’s Adult Swim sensation The Greatest Event in Television History, a 15-minute spoof that went viral, Adam Scott enlisted Mad Men’s Jon Hamm to help him re-create the opening credits of ’80s detective series Simon & Simon. Now, for the second Greatest Event, Scott is bringing along his Parks and Recreation costar Amy Poehler to take on Hart to Hart (the special airs June 6). Scott stars as millionaire amateur sleuth Jonathan Hart, while Poehler channels his glamorous wife, Jennifer.
“Literally every day since our first episode aired back in October, I have been inundated, nonstop, with people not asking for another one,” Scott says. “I applaud everyone for their restraint, and as a thank-you we bring you Episode 2.” Scott has a deal to make two more Greatest Event specials later this year — watch out, Hardcastle and McCormick!
