January: The Golden Globes. February: The upcoming, first guest spot on Late Night with Seth Meyers. March: Lingering across newsstands as the cover-story feature for Ladies’ Home Journal. All in all, Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler is putting together one heck of a 2014 media Q1, with still plenty of Q1 to go.
As an added bonus for Mediabistro readers, the March article to go along with the cover – titled “Poehler Power” – was written by none other than the very busy and successful freelance feature writer Taffy Brodesser-Akner. She was once our director of education.
Probably the best news delivered in the LHJ interview is that if Hillary Clinton does indeed, as expected, run for President in 2016, Poehler says she would most likely have no problem drop-in-resurrecting a certain SNL impersonation. The article intro is framed by Poehler’s Boston upbringing and later on, she touches on Beantown once more:
“I respond to people telling me about their experiences rather than telling me what to do. That’s the Boston in me. That’s why I’m not very good with personal trainers.”
Ha ha, and understood. Rather than us telling Poehler how she might have answered certain questions differently, we’re just going to let her know: we enjoyed the interview. Look for the March 2014 issue on newsstands starting February 11.
