Judy Greer appears at Book Soup on Thursday April 17, 2014 at 7:00 pm to discuss and sign her new memoir I Don’t Know What You Know Me From: Confessions of a Co-Star.
About the book:
ou know Judy Greer, right? Wait, what was she in again? The Wedding Planner, 13 Going on 30, 27 Dresses, The Descendants. Yes, you totally recognize her. And, odds are, if you’re like most women in America, you feel like she’s already your friend. Thankfully, Greer has finally written a book of essays about all the moments, topics, observations, and confessions that you would hope to hear from your best friend. How a midnight shopping trip to CVS can cure all? What it’s like to have stepchildren? And how she “really” feels about her mother? Yes, it’s all in there. But Judy Greer isn’t just a regular friend-she’s a celebrity friend. Want to know which celebs she’s peed next to? Or what the Oscars were actually like? Or which hot actor gave her father a Harley Davidson? Don’t worry–that’s included, too. Besides being laugh-out-loud funny, you’ll love her because she makes us genuinely feel like she’s one of us. Because even though she sometimes has a stylist and a make-up artist, she still wears (and hates!) Spanx. Because she starts her book like this: “This is who I am. This is what I think about things. This is stuff that happened to me, that could have just as easily have happened to you. I’m not that special, and we’re probably not that different. I think I am really lucky to be where I am in life, but I’ve never really lost that feeling that I don’t fit in, and if you have, will you please email me and tell me how you did it? I’m serious.”

Tickets available at the link! SOLD OUT!!

About HOLLYWOOD SAID NO!:
This fall, Bob & David are finally back together after all these years (and embarking on their first official tour together since a sold-out national tour in 2002 following the end of Mr. Show, their highly influential, Emmy-nominated HBO sketch program) with a collection of never-before-seen scripts that were so funny they made Hollywood wet its ninny-pants. HOLLYWOOD SAID NO! reveals the amazing full-length scripts for Bob and David Make a Movie (fleshed out with brand-new storyboards by acclaimed artist Mike Mitchell) and Hooray For America!: a satirical power-house indictment of all that you hold dear.
And there’s more! HOLLYWOOD SAID NO! will also include a section of “constructive” notes written by a “studio executive,” a bonus section of orphaned sketch ideas from the Mr. Show days and beyond, suitable for performance by church groups that aren’t all “koo-koo” about religion. And last but not least (well, possibly least), Bob & David provide a section of reminiscences to add context and back story on what went right and what went wrong. For the first time ever, take a peek at the scripts that didn’t get the green light from Hollywood and ponder a world we can only dream about.

Harvard Book Store is pleased to welcome BOB ODENKIRK (Breaking Bad) and DAVID CROSS (Arrested Development) for a discussion of their book Hollywood Said No!: Orphaned Film Scripts, Bastard Scenes, and Abandoned Darlings from the Creators of Mr. Show.
Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, creators of HBO’s classic sketch comedy show Mr. Show, present to you this collection of never-before-seen scripts and ideas that Hollywood couldn’t find the gumption to green-light. Simply put…
HOLLYWOOD SAID NO!
Since Mr. Show closed up shop, Bob and David have kept busy with many projects–acting in fun, successful, movies and TV shows, directing things, and complaining about stuff that didn’t turn out well to anyone who would listen, and even alone, in silence, inside their own heads. Hollywood Said No! reveals the full-length, never-before-seen scripts for Bob and David Make a Movie (fleshed out with brand-new storyboards by acclaimed artist Mike Mitchell) and Hooray For America!: a satirical power-house indictment of all that you hold dear. This tome also includes a bonus section of orphaned sketch ideas from the Mr. Show days and beyond, suitable for performance by church groups that aren’t all koo-koo about religion. Hollywood Said No!, is chock-full of comic twists, turns, and maybe a few hard truths. We said “maybe,” but what we mean was “probably not.”
Now, for the first time, take a peek at the scripts that didn’t get the go-ahead and ponder a world we can only dream about…and beyond!
