Rebel Wilson teases 'Super Fun Night' finale, reveals deleted scene that was too crazy for TV

On the season finale of Super Fun Night, Rebel Wilson’s Kimmie has a super-big decision to make about her love life.

Her choices in this debate of the heart: James (Nate Torrence), the sweet and goofy boyfriend, and Richard (Kevin Bishop), Kimmie’s co-worker whose growing affections bubbled to the surface last week and culminated with a big smooch. In the finale, “She kind of manages to scramble and decide which one she’s going to go after,” teases Wilson.

It’s a classic story of torn affection, but oddly, what Wilson is most proud of in the show’s 17-episode run is that there has been, as she sees it, very little classic about it. “It has a unique tone to it compared to other comedies,” she says. But the actress/writer/EP admits that finding the right balance between her signature raunchy humor, dramatic elements, and broad comedy wasn’t easy. “This is my first foray into American television, and I guess what I didn’t realize is…[the list of] what you can’t say is huge,” she says. “There was always at least five minutes cut from every episode of what I thought was super hilarious stuff, but what they deemed inappropriate for family television, whether it was the words I was using or the intention.”

Last week’s Wilson-penned episode, for example, originally contained a flashback scene to a previous year in which Wilson’s character ate a whole pizza on Valentine’s Day because she was depressed and ended up getting an “attack of irritable bowel syndrome.” “[The character] was wearing a beret at the time and I had to go into this alleyway and sh– into the beret,” she says. It got cut. READ FULL STORY

'Super Fun Night': Rebel Wilson defends use of American accent on show

Rebel Wilson has no plans on changing her character’s American accent on her forthcoming ABC comedy Super Fun Night. 

The news came to the disappointment of some critics, who have lamented the fact that the Australian chose not to use her native accent.

“I started out in the theater as an actress doing all different characters in all different accents,” co-creator Wilson said today during a panel at the Television Critics Association press tour. “Really, when I first came to America, I was doing movies and thought I would be American all the time, but the way it worked out was that I was playing more international characters. So when I had the opportunity to do this TV show in America, the concept was three girls living in Manhattan who have known each other since they were 13 or 14 years of age, so I just really thought I had to make this character American.”

Wilson, who was on the panel with her co-stars, as well as co-creator Conan O’Brien, also elaborated on the self-deprecating humor in the series. “The purpose of the show, to me, is to really inspire girls who don’t think they’re cool or popular or pretty and all that, to get out there and [prove] that they can have fun and exciting lives, too. I think in order to do that, we have to present a very realistic version of what it’s like to be girl who looks like me and isn’t the coolest….there are some very sad storylines coming down the pipe, but I think we have to present that so that when we present the wins for my character it’s far more gratifying.”

Super Fun Night premieres Oct. 2 on ABC.

ABC's Fall Schedule Announcement: A snap judgment

Maybe Olivia Pope needs to do some damage control for ABC, which brought back only two of the 10 shows it premiered last season. At the network’s upfront presentation on Tuesday, Kerry Washington appeared in a pre-taped clip as her character from Scandal, and offered advice to Anne Sweeney, the president of Disney/ABC Television Group, alongside Jimmy Kimmel. Discussing the problem of Dancing With the Stars, which took a ratings dip this season, Kimmel quipped, “For one thing, they’re not really stars.” There aren’t a ton of stars in ABC’s new lineup, either — but there are a whole lot of new shows. So if you can’t find something to watch between the comic-book blockbuster Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the soapy infidelity thriller Betrayal, and almost a dozen other projects, don’t go crying to Olivia. She’s already preparing to slam down the phone and tell you, “It’s handled!”


MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
Genius biochemists, martial arts experts, and regular mortal nerds, prepare to program your DVRs, because the geek pedigree here is so strong, you’d need extra-thick coke-bottle glasses to read it. Executive producer Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Marvel’s The Avengers) has tapped Clark Gregg to reprise his feature film role as Agent Phil Coulson, the leader of an exclusive team of scary men in dark suits known as S.H.I.E.L.D. who investigate unexplained mysteries around the world. Other things to look forward to? Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) dislocating some kneecaps. Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) flying adorable little sci-fi miniplanes. Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) constantly marveling at some scientific creation or another. (“It’s not of this Earth!”) Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) perfecting his “I’m a very handsome man, and I don’t have time for this nonsense” smirk. And you, super-excited Marvel fan, losing your mind just a little.
