New Couple Alert? Rose Byrne & Bobby Cannavale Hold Hands at Portlandia Party

Rose Byrne & Bobby Cannavale Hold Hands at Portlandia Party in N.Y.C.

New couple alert?

Rose Byrne and Boardwalk Empire's Bobby Cannavale clutched hands as they surreptitiously made their way through the crowd inside the Hall of Ocean Life at New York's American Museum of Natural History Monday night. Though the duo never posed for pictures together on the red carpet, they looked to be very much together and enjoying each other's company at a bash to celebrate IFC's hit comedy Portlandia's upcoming third season (Jan. 4, 10 p.m. ET). (When asked if they were dating, Byrne's rep had no comment.)

The soiree, which began with a screening of two upcoming episodes from the series and an introduction by its stars and writers, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, continued into the vast ocean-themed room, lined with hundreds of models of sea creatures and bathed purplish-blue lights as a 94 ft. long blue whale hung from the ceiling.

A who's who of the comedy world stars – Martin Short; David Cross and wife Amber Tamblyn; and most of the current cast of SNL – mingled in the large room, chatting with each other and with fans (there was no separate VIP section) and grabbing drinks from the large bar in the center of the room or nibbling passed Hors d'oeuvre such as bite-sized waffles with Camembert cheese.

Elisabeth Moss Says Ex Fred Armisen Is Not 'Normal'

Originally posted 03/08/2012 12:00PM

Elisabeth Moss has something to say about her ex-husband Fred Armisen, and the funnyman might not be smiling at her remarks.

"One of the greatest things I heard someone say about him is, 'He's so great doing impersonations. But the greatest impersonation he does is that of a normal person.' To me, that sums it up," the Mad Men actress, 29, tells Page Six Magazine.

She adds: "I've never told anyone that. And I don't want to waste any more of my life talking about it."

Biting comments indeed, and Moss knows it.

Even before she started performing on Saturday Night Live, Abby Elliott knew firsthand about the raucous working environment in the studio.

How? She is the daughter of former cast member Chris Elliott.

Now an audience favorite – thanks to her quirky impersonations – the SNL star says she finds the workplace to be much calmer than its reputation might have it.

"It's the same cocaine schedule, but without the cocaine," Elliott, 24, tells Maxim in the January issue, on sale Dec. 13.
