NEW YORK - When Jennifer Aniston heard last month that Jason Sudeikis was exiting "Saturday Night Live," she sent the comic actor a text. "So sad you're leaving - selfishly - but good for you. An enormous life awaits," she wrote. Her advice in person was a little more portentous. "Brace yourself for what the next year will feel like," the actress said to Sudeikis as she sipped coffee with him at a downtown hotel last week. Aniston had retired her own signature persona, "Friends" mainstay Rachel Green, after more than a decade, and she knew there was a tendency to underestimate the feelings involved.

Where you've seen him Charlie Day plays addlebrained Charlie Kelly on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," the impolite FX sitcom he also writes and produces with friends and costars Glenn Howerton and Rob McElhenney. He was on "Luis" (the Luis Guzmán sitcom) and had a recurring role on "Third Watch. " He's currently filming "Horrible Bosses" with Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman and "Going the Distance" costar Jason Sudeikis. Day is reluctant to name a favorite entry in "Always Sunny," but allows that the musical episode, for which he composed songs, is up there.

When I was with a group of parents earlier this week, watching our kids play in a 14-and-under baseball tournament, I asked them how many of the boys - aged 13 and 14--had gone to see the R-rated movie “Ted.” The answer: Just about all of 'em. But here's what I found really surprising: Nearly all of them went with their mothers. Put simply: Despite its rampant drug use, crude sexual banter and profanity-fueled humor, “Ted” has become a family movie. I have to admit that I wasn't exactly shocked.

Los Angeles didn't get chosen as the location for the latest "Fast & Furious" movie, but it did land the spoof version of the popular car chasing franchise. The actual "Fast & Furious 7" has been filming in Atlanta to tap into Georgia's 30% tax credit, though some filming is expected to occur in L.A. But "SuperFast," a parody of Universal's "Fast and Furious" films, began filming in Vernon, south of downtown, last week. The independently produced movie comes from writer-directors Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg, known for the "Scary Movie" films and for parodies of "Twilight" with their satiric "Vampires Suck" and the historical epic "300" with their comical "Meet the Spartans.

After a breakout supporting role in the 2011 ensemble comedy "Bridesmaids" and an Emmy win for her work in the CBS sitcom "Mike & Molly" the same year, it was only a matter of time before Melissa McCarthy got to headline her own movie. That movie is "Identity Thief," which stars Jason Bateman as a mild-mannered office drone and McCarthy as the volatile con artist who hijacks his credit cards and turns his life upside down. The film was written by Craig Mazin ("The Hangover Part II")
