What Makes Ellie Kemper 'Really Angry'?

Originally posted 03/03/2015 05:45PM

Ellie Kemper has plenty of experience playing polite characters, and the former star of The Office follows the same philosophy when it comes to her personal life.

"It drives me crazy when people don't have good manners," Kemper, 34, tells PEOPLE. "I think it's inexcusable."

But that's not all the actress – who stars in Tina Fey's latest comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt doesn't like.

Workplaces across the nation ground to a halt for a thrilling half hour on Wednesday.

Sometime around 4:30 p.m. ET, season 3 of Netflix's House of Cards was put online a full two weeks ahead of its release date.

Netflix has taken the error – which many of the Twitterverse believe to have been a publicity stunt – in stride.

"Due to a technical glitch some Frank Underwood fans got a sneak peak," said a Netflix rep in a statement to PEOPLE. "He'll be back on Netflix on Feb 27. #nospoilers."

"This is Washington," read a Tweet from the official House of Cards Twitter. "There's always a leak. All 13 episodes will launch February 27."

Netflix's latest series may be set at a sun-drenched resort, but it sure does look dark.

Kyle Chandler stars as John Rayburn, who is a detective with the Monroe County Sheriff's office in the Florida Keys when his older brother Danny (Ben Mendelsohn) returns and throws the Rayburns' lives into disarray.

"Sometimes you know something's coming," John says over the increasingly uneasy trailer. "You feel it in the air. You don't sleep at night. The voice in your head's telling you that something's going to go terribly wrong, and there's nothing you can do to stop it."

Candy for Dinner Is Just One Delight in Tina Fey's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Trailer

[YOUTUBE "mNKEKlXY3Z4"] Netflix released the trailer for its upcoming Tina Fey comedy, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and it's as winsome and weird as you might expect.

Kimmy stars Ellie Kemper (The Office, Bridesmaids) in the title role as a 20-something liberated from a doomsday cult who learns that the apocalypse never actually happened and her entire life was based on lies.

Fey's 30 Rock partner in comedy, Robert Carlock, is also behind the series, so it's no surprise a few familiar faces pop up among the eclectic oddballs Kimmy meets when she moves to New York, finds housing with a Times Square robot performer named Titus (Tituss Burgess) and lands a job nannying for high-strung, self-absorbed working mother Jacqueline (Jane Krakowski, playing to her strengths).

He's gorgeous. He's absolutely charming. But where, exactly, did he come from?

Lorenzo Richelmy (pronounced Ree-kale-mee), 24, is the Italian actor who was picked from relative obscurity to star in the Weinstein-produced Marco Polo, to be released on Netflix Friday.

The 10-episode series is expected to be the new House of Cards or Orange is the New Black, in terms of people obsessively binge-watching, with Richelmy poised to become its next big breakout star.

The actor, who says he didn't even speak English when he was chosen for the part of the famous explorer, had to quickly learn kung-fu, horseback riding and sword-fighting, which he's now mastered after seven months of shooting on locations in Italy, Kazakhstan and Malaysia. So what are some other surprising things about Richelmy?

Netflix Picks Up Tina Fey's Next Comedy

Originally posted 11/21/2014 07:35PM

Tina Fey's first TV comedy since 30 Rock is heading to Netflix.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which stars Ellie Kemper (The Office) as a woman who escapes a doomsday cult and starts a new life in New York, will debut on Netflix in March. The comedy was originally developed and ordered by NBC for its midseason lineup before Fey and fellow 30 Rock scribe Robert Carlock realized it was a better fit for the home of House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black.

"When the opportunity arose for Tina Fey and Robert Carlock to premiere their new show on Netflix with a two-season commitment, we decided this was the best possible scenario to launch this captivating new series," said NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt.
