Amy Sedaris on the set of Ping Pong Summer

You can catch Amy Sedaris on the big screen in May in Chef, and then again in June in Ping Pong Summer!

Set in 1985 in Ocean City, MD, Ping Pong Summer is a coming-of-age story about a shy 13 year-old white boy who’s obsessed with ping pong and hip-hop. While on a family vacation in Ocean City, he finds an unexpected mentor in their next-door neighbor (played by Susan Sarandon).

Amy plays the shy teen’s aunt. I actually visited the set on the day that Amy was in Ocean City to film her scenes, and she’s hilarious in it. It looks like it’s going to be a really fun flick for the summertime! (By the way, you can click on the photo to view it larger.)

Ping Pong Summer premiered at Sundance to glowing reviews, and will open in select theaters and on VOD on June 6. You’ll also be able to catch it on DVD and Blu-Ray in early August. To find out more, check out the film’s official Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and watch the trailer below (yep, Amy is in it!).

Amy to appear on Letterman

Amy Sedaris is scheduled to appear on Letterman this Thursday, May 1. Fingers crossed that we see Amy on The Late Show a few more times before Dave’s retirement!

Amy on her role in Jon Favreau’s upcoming ‘Chef’

You’ll be able to catch Amy on the big screen next month in Jon Favreau’s new food truck film, Chef! In the upcoming indie flick about a restaurant owner who loses his job and starts a food truck, Amy joins fellow cast members Scarlet Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo and Dustin Hoffman, among others. Chef releases nationwide on May 9 (though this is an indie, so I’m honestly not sure that it will be playing everywhere). Check out the video below in which Amy talks about her part in the film (she plays a publicist, and everything on her is fake), working with Favreau and Leguizamo, and doing cameo parts in movies.
