I fangirl over a lot of shows and people, but Amy Poehler is my hero. May drink wine and send you weird messages.
Currently experiencing an intense Benedict Cumberbatch obsession.
What was the first element of personality that you noticed in Amy?
BILL: Her confidence. She was willing to try anything.
EILEEN: She was pretty feisty.
BILL: She would just jump in and succeed or fail—it wouldn’t matter. Once, in the fourth grade, the principal was on stage and he had the mike up high. Then little Amy walks across, goes up to the mike, grabs the little knob, twists it, pulls it down, and I said to myself, Oh my God, she has no stage fright whatsoever.
