Poehler, Armisen, Martin Short to Guest on NBC’s ‘Hollywood Game Night’

By

Amy Poehler, Fred Armisen, and Martin Short are just some of the guest stars lined up for Hollywood Game Night, a new NBC game show hosted by Jane Lynch and produced by Sean Hayes. Deadline reports that in addition to those three amazing comedy people, Matthew Perry, Jason Bateman, Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard, Maya Rudolph, Minnie Driver, Kal Penn, Ellie Kemper, Kristen Chenoweth, Cheryl Hines, Molly Shannon, and Max Greenfield have all signed on to guest, with more expected to be added later. Hollywood Game Night is an hour-long show that will feature celebrities and non-celebrities participating in game nights in a cocktail party environment. NBC gave the series an eight-episode order and there’s no word on when it will premiere, though the summer seems likely. Until then, you’ll just have to pretend Amy Poehler and Fred Armisen are at your cocktail parties and hope none of your “real guests” pick up on how super weird you’re being.
