Amy Poehler: Heroic lunch lady? Yum!

Amy-poehler_l Ohmahgah! Amy Poeheler is set to star in the big-screen adaptation of a series of YA graphic novels. Exciting! But this isn't a silly superhero casting (though…I would so be on board for that, FYI Hollywood): She'll be playing a heroic lunch lady who "secretly dishes out helpings of justice." The film will be based on author and illustrator Jarrett Krosoczka's upcoming Lunch Lady books — Lunch Lady and the League of Librarians, Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute, Lunch Lady and the Author Visit Vendetta, and Lunch Lady and the Summer Camp Shakedown are all due over the next year.

And the script? Adapted by none other than Internet darling Sarah Haskins. Excuse me while I go fan myself.

When I hear "lunch lady," I immediately go to the Adam Sandler song from SNL, but even given the "sloppy joe, slop, sloppy joe" refrain going through my head right now, I am psyched. I'm the only person who totally loves Parks and Recreation — and I can live with that, thankyouverymuch — but I love seeing Poehler play someone more powerful and commanding.

Thoughts, PopWatchers? Are you smelling what Poehler's cooking?

    You’re not the only one who loves “Parks and Recreation” – it has more LOL moments for me than “The Office” now.

    Ok, the lunch lady series movie should be funny, now lets have Captain Underpants.

    no, I love P&R too. It’s not as laugh-out-loud as a lot of other comedies, but it seems to have twice as much heart.

    Poeheler’s an annoying and overrated pseudo-actress, a product of publicity departments and the American viewing audience’s extreme gullibility. Like Tina Fey, the alleged “genius” of comedy, Poeheler deserves to be sent back to the cashier’s position at Wal-Mart.
