On January 14th, Lizzy and some of her Party Down castmates attended the Spartacus:Blood And Sand Series Premiere and on January 15th, they attended the
AFI Awards 2009 where they won AFI T.V. Program of the year
Sorry Guys, looks like I missed this event Lizzy and her Party Down castmates attended at the end of last month. It was an After Party for Starz Entertainment for the
Hollywood Film Festival this year.
Some Promotional Images of Lizzy as Juliette Flowers from her upcoming movie The Last Rites of Ransom Pride have been released (yay!) and I've added them to the galleries
hopefully we get some more news and media on this film soon!
On July 14th, Lizzy attended the The Buzz Girls Creatives Dinner At BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood with fellow actresses Lindsay Sloane, Constance Zimmer and Rachel Harris and I've added
9 new pictures from that event
The Red Band trailer for Lizzy's movie Hot Tub Time Machine has been released. There's no Lizzy in the trailer but it's neat to see anyways
. Caution there is some strong language in the trailer, so don't watch it at work ;)
Just wanted to post to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY LIZZY!!!!!. Here at Lizzy Caplan Fan (and all her fans) want to wish Lizzy an Amazing 27th Birthday!. I just realised I'm a whole
4 days older than Lizzy haha. Yay June birthdays!
Just got the word that Lizzy's Starz series Party Down has been picked up for a second 10 episode season.
The show will likely return to production in late summer, with a return airdate sometime in 2010. Check out the articles below for more information
So Lizzy is still currently filming Hot Tub Time Machine in Fernie, B.C. (a friend of mine is actually in the film) so hopefully we'll get some more info on that soon.
But for now I've added caps from Episodes 7 & 8 of Party Down to the galleries.
Here are three new articles that mention Lizzy's new Movie Hot Tub Time Machine with John Cusack and Crispin Glover. And it's currently filming
in Vancouver (which means if I'm feeling creepy I should go check it out ;) lol)
YOU'VE SEEN LIZZY CAPLAN, even if you don't recognize her right away. The actress has played a string of memorable characters, including Goth outsider Janice in "Mean Girls." Her latest role is struggling comedian Casey in the Starz show "Party Down" (Fri., 10:30 p.m.), a new comedy from "Veronica Mars" creator Rob Thomas about aspiring L.A. actors working as caterers. She shares on-set tales of slinging appetizers and sound bites.
Added caps of Lizzy in the second episde of Party Down called "California College Conservatives Union Caucus". Also
thanks to Qkich for letting us know that Lizzy won an award for best supporting role in Cloverfield at the 2008 Cyber Horror Awards
Party Down star Lizzy Caplan may live next to the faux set of The Hills, but she’s the real deal in young Hollywood. She talks to Rachel Syme about Mean Girls, Judd Apatow, and wanting to carry a gun.
Lizzy Caplan lives next door to Audrina Patridge.It’s a perfect juxtaposition—both actresses present such opposite poles of young Hollywood. Caplan being a sardonic, 26-year-old tomboy with strong features, a biting wit, and an eagle-eye for picking interesting and talent-stretching projects, and Patridge being the bikini-clad sidekick on MTV’s faux-reality drama The Hills. While Patridge floats around the velvet ropes with cameras in tow, Caplan, who stars in the new Starz sitcom Party Down, admittedly “flies under the radar” as one of Hollywood’s funniest, sharpest, and most laid-back young talents. Not that she doesn’t wish she could make the occasional cameo on The Hills: “My roommates and I sometimes lie out on our balcony in bikinis when they are filming,” she jokes. “Who knows? Could be my big break.”
“I don’t pay much attention to the beautiful people, which is why I probably get calls from my agent telling me I can’t wear my pajamas to auditions”
Of course, Caplan’s real big break has already occurred—she played the memorable Janis Ian (goth chick, possible lesbian, outcast) in Tina Fey’s Mean Girls opposite Lindsay Lohan in 2005, and had a minor role in Judd Apatow’s first TV effort, Freaks and Geeks. “It’s lucky for me that Judd’s back,” she says of the Frat Pack auteur. “I still have cred from doing that part, and it was ten years ago.”
No matter what project she's been a part of -- "Mean Girls," "Related," "Cloverfield" -- I have always been drawn to the wry wit of Lizzy Caplan. She comes across on screen like the kind of smart-ass you would really enjoy knocking back a few beers with.
So I'm thrilled to report that is 100% true. After a few minutes talking with the actress about her new series, "Party Down," I felt like I was chatting with an old friend. Not only do we share a love of "Saved By The Bell," but she is also wary of anyone who has never waited tables.
Fortuitous considering her new show is all about a team of cater waiters -- "Wet Hot American Summer's" Ken Marino and "Best in Show's" Jane Lynch lead the charge -- that would make for an awful party but a fantastic TV show.
Adding to the awesome-ness are "Party Down" creators Rob Thomas, the "Veronica Mars" boss, and PopWrap fave Paul Rudd. I mean, what else do you need to know? If you're Lizzy, nothing!
Lizzy talks about her new comedy series, nude scenes and Freaks and Geeks memories
Lizzy Caplan has had a busy career the past few years, appearing in hit movies like Mean Girls and Cloverfield, along with a recent stint on HBO's True Blood as Amy. Caplan will soon be seen on Starz's new comedy series Party Down, which counts Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas and Paul Rudd among the executive producers. Also starring Ken Marino (Reaper / Role Models), Jane Lynch (The 40 Year Old Virgin / Best in Show), Adam Scott (Step Brothers), Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars) and Martin Starr (Freaks and Geeks), the series focuses on a group of caterers working in Los Angeles, most of whom dream of making it big in Hollywood.
Having worked as a waitress and caterer, Caplan had plenty of real life experience to call upon for the role, which reunited her with Starr – the two previously worked together on Freaks and Geeks, where she had the small role of Sara, a girl with a crush on Jason Segal's Nick, who eventually got to be his girlfriend and disco dancing partner in the series finale.
As we sat down together to talk about Party Down, Caplan laughed as her chair slipped beneath her, telling me, "I totally almost bit it." Our conversation then proceeded to cover improvisation on Party Down, her nude scene for True Blood, and her disco dancing time on Freaks and Geeks.

Just a small tidbit from Hollywood Scoop featuring a mention of Lizzy and Mathew Perry, which is cute, so I thought I'd add it here.
On Saturday night, Mathew Perry threw his best friend Mark Holder, a Hollywood talent manager, an unforgettable birthday at The Kress. Our invitation must have gotten lost in the mail.
After dinner, the party moved up to the rooftop lounge where partygoers had bottle service at the lounge’s exclusive rooftop cabanas, while taking in the gorgeous view of LA.
Matthew seemed to be VERY close to True Blood star Lizzy Caplan- the two didn’t leave each other’s side ALL night! We smell a new Hollywood hookup.
Welcome to the Brand New Lizzy Caplan Fan! - Thanks to the super-talented Kika @ Route 66 we
have the newly revamped Lizzy-Caplan.com here for all you Lizzy Fans. I've just made the change now, so I'm still tweaking things here and there, but
for now enjoy the new layout!
Hope everyone picked up a copy of Lizzy's movie My Best Friend's Girl which is on DVD today!
On Sunday Lizzy and her fellow Party Down cast members attended a Press Tour for their show which premieres
on Starz in March. So far the only Promos for this show I've come across have no Lizzy, but hopefully some will turn up soon!
After last January's tour was canceled by the writers strike, I spent a lot of time vamping for things to write about, most notably spending a lot of time watching and writing about the Jeremy Piven version of "Cupid." So obviously one of the shows I'm most psyched to talk about at this January tour is ABC's upcoming "Cupid" remake. But with that session almost a week away, I first got to enjoy the panel for "Cupid" creator Rob Thomas' other new show, "Party Down."
Thomas has been trying to get "Party Down" -- a comedy about a group of LA cater-waiters, most of whom aspire to careers in showbiz that they'll never get -- going for nearly six years, when he, good friend Paul Rudd and writers Dan Etheridge and John Enbom (who worked with Thomas on "Veronica Mars") became obsessed with the original British version of "The Office."
"We started talking about wanting to write something that had a similar comedic tone," he explained, "and we decided if that show was about people who had given themselves over entirely to the rat race that it would be interesting if we took our stab at people who had perhaps chased the dream for too long, people who had refused to join the rat race."
Five years ago, they sold the concept to HBO (at the time, Rudd would have played the lead), but then the deal fell apart when HBO felt the pilot -- set at a neighborhood potluck in the unglamorous neighborhood of Sherman Oaks -- wasn't as "inside Hollywood" as they wanted. Then two years ago, Thomas shot a homemade pilot and almost sold it to FX until that deal fell through, too.
And now it's at Starz, where it will premiere in March, with a cast that's a mixture of "Veronica Mars" alums (including Adam Scott as the lead, Ken Marino and Ryan Hansen, plus Enrico Colantoni as a guest in the pilot), Apatow world alums (including Lizzy Caplan and Martin Starr) and people who bridge both those worlds (notably Jane Lynch).
Naturally, most of the talk in the session turned to the cast and creators' own experience with cater-waitering.
"I ran into an acquaintance of mine who was cater-waitering at a party," Thomas recalled. "And I started telling him the idea for the show, and I realized, halfway into this conversation that there was no good way out of that. 'You know, it's about those people who come to L.A., chasing a dream, and they've been at it too long, and they find themselves in a dead-end job.' And about this time, I felt very bad about that."
Lynch noted that she had waitressed but never worked catered affairs, while Caplan fessed up that she had done more than a few.
"The whole experience made me so angry," she said, "like having to go around and serve these people because I was so convinced that, like, 'It should be me. You should be serving me.' It's like there's nobody really cockier than the unemployed actor. Like you're positive that you can do it better than anything you're seeing on any screen."
Scott's last appearance at press tour -- as the henpecked husband on "Tell Me You Love Me" -- saw him answering questions about prosthetic falluses, and here he demonstrated a dry wit that suggested he'll do a fine job filling Rudd's shoes.
"I always thought after 'Tell Me You Love Me,' I just wanted to do something less hilarious," he deadpanned.
"Actually shooting that show was really fun even though the result was kind of dire. You know, very, very, serious drama. It was actually fun to do. But this is certainly much lighter fare, and it is a welcome change. It was not always easy to go into work (before). I mean, I drive to work now, and it's like I just hope I can keep a straight face while I'm working with Ken and Jane. Whereas I used to go into work thinking, 'Oh, I hope I can cry properly when we lose the baby.'"
Ken Marino, Adam Scott, Jane Lynch, Martin Starr, Ryan Hansen and Lizzy Caplan have been cast in "Party Down," a new series about a Los Angeles catering team.
Production has started in Los Angeles on the new original series from Starz Entertainment, in association with its television production sibling Starz Media.
This is the first series Starz Media is producing for Starz.
"Each episode of this half-hour comedy finds the hapless catering team working a new event -- and inevitably getting tangled up with the colorful guests and their absurd lives," Starz Entertainment said in a news release Wednesday.
The series was created and is executive produced by Rob Thomas, creator of "Veronica Mars" and "Cupid."
"Party Down" is slated to air in March as a companion to the returning comedy series "Head Case," starring Alexandra Wentworth.
"'Party Down' is going to be a terrific addition to our originals lineup and we're pleased to have it as our first in-house collaboration with Starz Media," Stephan Shelanski, executive vice president of programming for Starz Entertainment, said in a statement. "You can't ask for anything better than to have the powerhouse team of Rob Thomas and Paul Rudd attached as executive producers, as well as a highly talented cast."
While True Blood's vampires bare their fangs, the HBO series' female stars are baring something else entirely.
True Blood boasts two of the top 10 nude television scenes of the year, according to a celebrity skin website.
Lizzy Caplan, who plays blood druggie Amy Burley in the sex- and corpuscle-drenched series, tops the list, which was compiled by nudie site MrSkin.com. Anna Paquin (pictured), who portrays mind-reading waitress Sookie Stackhouse, comes in No. 3.
"All the nudity on TV this year finally made good on the term 'boob tube,'" said website rep Mr. Skin in a press release crowning 2008's hottest nude scenes.
True Blood, based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries books by Charlaine Harris, takes place in a near-future Louisiana in which vampires walk among the living, thanks to synthetic blood and a "vampire rights" movement.
Before her True Blood portrayal of a hippie with a taste for mind-altering vampire blood, Caplan played Marlena in Matt Reeves' creepy creature feature Cloverfield and previously held down lesser roles in Smallville and Freaks and Geeks.
All the winners on MrSkin.com's list come from cable television shows like True Blood, Weeds and Californication, which thrive in a world where FCC restrictions don't apply (and clothes and profanity fly).
See the complete list of winners -- and sound off on the picks -- after the jump.
1. Lizzy Caplan: True Blood (HBO) 2. Mary Louise Parker: Weeds (Showtime)
3. Anna Paquin: True Blood (HBO)
HBO's hot new series True Blood is coming to DVD this Spring! While the studio hasn't officially announced it via the normal channels, one of our readers (who only left the name "Nick," but we thank him nonetheless!) spotted a listing for the release at
HBO's online store. It shows that a 5-DVD collection will be available on Tuesday, May 12th. Now, that's a fair distance down the road, so it could be subject to change, of course. But right now that's what they're showing!
The price given is $59.99, but that might be a discounted "retail" cost and not the actual list price. Video is listed as anamorphic widescreen, and audio in English Dolby Surround Stereo. Running time given is 720 minutes. No extras are mentioned, nor is there any cover art.
As the studio description at the top mentions, the show stars Anna Paquin (X-Men films, The Piano) and Stephen Moyer (The Starter Wife, Quills). You'll also spot Lizzy Caplan (Cloverfield, Mean Girls, The Pitts)... among others.
