Rebel Wilson posts the first photo from the set of 'Pitch Perfect 2'

I hope you have your pitch pipes ready, because things are about to get aca-mazing.

Rebel Wilson tweeted out the first photo from the set of Pitch Perfect 2, and even though it doesn’t feature Anna Kendrick or any of those Barden Bellas uniforms, it’s full of familiar faces. Specifically, Wilson is joined by Ester Dean, Brittany Snow, Kelley Jakle, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, and the film’s director, Elizabeth Banks.


On the scene at People's Ones To Watch party: Anna Faris, Kathy Griffin and more tell us who they are obsessed with

People and Essie came together this week to celebrate Hollywood’s next generation of talented stars at People’s Ones To Watch event.

L.A.’s trendy Hinoki & The Bird played host to the swanky soiree, which turned out a nice mix of fresh-faced stars on the rise and familiar faces. Read on to find out who Anna Faris, Kathy Griffin, and more had to say about which newcomer they’ve got their eye on right now!


'Super Fun Night' premiere: Is the Rebel Wilson comedy super fun?

Did you love Pitch Perfect? Did you leave Bridesmaids wondering who that Australian chick was? Then you will love Super Fun Night — which is to say, if you weren’t in the Rebel Wilson fan club before, the ABC comedy won’t change your mind.

As Kimmie Boubier, Wilson is the same charmingly goofy funnywoman she’s been in her past roles. This time, she’s a junior attorney in New York who, after a big promotion, is inspired to trade her Friday nights in with best friends Marika (Lauren Ash) and Helen-Alice (Liza Lapira) for exciting new adventures — or at least a piano-bar outing.

As someone firmly in Wilson’s corner, I’m excited at the prospect of weekly doses of Rebel. That’s not to say the show is perfect; it isn’t. But there’s a lot to love here — which wasn’t intended to be a weight joke, though the show boasts plenty of those (Spanx are at the center of no fewer than four gags in the premiere).

So let’s take a closer look at some of the best lines and moments from our first look at Super Fun Night:

Teen Choice 2013: The esteemed bonus awards!

The official Teen Choice surfboards have all been handed out, but after absorbing Sunday’s two-hour awards ceremony on Fox, I felt there were simply not enough awards! This year’s bonus prizes are…

A wetsuited Rebel Wilson thought it was funny there’s a group called One Direction, because “That’s also the name I gave to my asshole.” Lovely!

Rebel Wilson wigs-up as Jennifer Lawrence's twin sister in bonus MTV skit -- VIDEO

So Rebel Wilson had kind of a rough time hosting the MTV Movie Awards last night, though one of her best moments came courtesy of other people’s buzz. And it turns out there was more of that. As this axed sketch shows — in which, True Life-style, we follow a day in the life of Katherine Lawrence, Jennifer’s twin sister and semi-professional shade-thrower — Wilson had a 2-minute answer to everyone who tuned in asking, “Where’s J-Law?”

Why was it cut? (Apparently the ceremony was running over into The Show with Vinny.) Who does Wilson’s wigs? At what point do the references to “boob meat” and boners tip her comedy formula from “screwball-nasty” to “day-old and gross”? Take a look and wonder after the jump.

MTV Movie Awards: Rebel Wilson's most outrageous jokes

MTV Movie Awards host Rebel Wilson is known for a particularly uncomfortable brand of comedy. Witness: Pitch Perfect‘s Fat Amy, who told the Barden Bellas she adopted the moniker “so skinny bitches like you don’t do it behind my back.” Considering the fact that at least one promo for tonight’s show featured a punchline in which Wilson found her in a compromising position regarding Channing Tatum’s junk, it seemed clear that the Aussie hostess wouldn’t spare the salacious.

To her credit, Wilson didn’t go the safe route. Most of her jokes fell on the absurdist side of the comedy spectrum rather than the conventional, Poconos-style yuks that hosts generally adopt for these occasions. (The one exception, in her intro of Kerry Washington: “Our next presenter is one of the few actresses that plays strong black women more than Tyler Perry.”) Whether her one-liners landed or not, they certainly delivered an across-the-board jaw-drop factor.

Below, we run down Wilson’s most obscene, sometimes cringe-worthy, lines from the 2013 ceremony. READ FULL STORY

'Pitch Perfect' cast reunites for MTV Movie Awards opener -- VIDEO

MTV Movie Awards host Rebel Wilson revived her Pitch Perfect fan favorite Fat Amy tonight in a much-anticipated musical reunion. Though Perfect‘s headliner Anna Kendrick (who blew away the world with her “Cups” audition from the film) was absent, there was an aca-Avenger-esque assembly of stars including Anna Camp, Skylar Astin, Esther Dean, Adam Devine, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, Ben Platt, and Brittany Snow.

The mash-up included a Wilson-sung rendition of Miley Cyrus ballad “The Climb,” the Treblemakers’ Astin spitting rhymes on Eminem’s “Lose Yourself,” and a roof-raising finale courtesy of a “Thriftshop”/”Girl on Fire” blend with Dean showing off her Alicia Keys-level pipes. Oh yeah, and there was a very intense strapless black catsuit  reveal by Wilson.

MTV Movie Awards: Sneak peek of Rebel Wilson in 'Magic Mike' -- VIDEO

The MTV Movie Awards has always relished a movie parody. If this leaked clip of Rebel Wilson’s “never-before-seen” Magic Mike cameo is any indication of what’s in store tonight, this year’s show won’t disappoint. In the clip, Matthew McConaughey’s (only slightly dubbed) Dallas introduces “Pregnant,” a baby bumped-up Wilson, to the Xquisite stage.

The Kid (Alex Pettyfer) looks on in horrified bemusement as “Pregnant” — decked out in spandex shorts, cowboy boots, a mesh top, and a Mia Wallace-wig — struts out  to Salt-n-Pepa’s “Push It” and gyrates. Naturally, the ladies in the crowd go wild. She even gets an unexpected dance partner (hint: it’s not Channing Tatum).

If even Mike warned, “You don’t want to know what I have to do for twenties,” we’re guessing you really don’t want to know how far this gal’ll go…. Check it out below.
