Cobie Partners With Innovation Campaign

Cobie Smulders has a big paycheck for one lucky — and innovative! — family.

The How I Met Your Mother actress is partnering up with Frito-Lay for Dreamvention — a contest aiming to encourage families to spend time together and be creative when it comes to solving everyday problems. Smulders tells PEOPLE that science is an important part of her life and she’s excited to create these opportunities for other families.

“We’re asking families to submit an invention that helps day-to-day life become more easy,” Smulders explains. “It’s kind of a great way for families to come together and work on a project together and have some bonding time, and also for kids to get fired up and excited about inventing.”

The actress is especially excited about the venture because she likes fostering a creative problem solving environment in her home life with husband Taran Killam and their two daughters.

“I get really excited when you can bridge technology with day-to-day uses. I like using technology to make my life easier and at home with my kids, I’m constantly getting them to create and try to figure out how things work,” she said.

Families can visit MyDreamvention.com to submit their invention idea that solves an everyday problem for a chance to win $250,000 until February. (Source)

“Avengers: Infinity War” Trailer Smashes Viewing Records

If you watched the Avengers: Infinity War trailer multiple times to catch all the details — Cap’s beard! Wakanda! The Guardians of the Galaxy! — you weren’t alone: The first trailer for the upcoming Marvel blockbuster racked up more than 200 million views in 24 hours, setting a new record for the most trailer views in a single day.

After debuting Wednesday morning, the Infinity War trailer earned 230 million views in its first day, according to Marvel. Infinity War’s record viewership dethrones the previous champion, It, which earned 197 million views when the first trailer dropped earlier this year.

The trailer for the third Avengers film finds the tyrannical Thanos (Josh Brolin) making his way to Earth in search of the powerful Infinity Stones. The first footage follows some of Marvel’s mightiest heroes — including Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Spider-Man (Tom Holland) — as they team up to take Thanos down.

Avengers: Infinity War will hit theaters May 4, 2018. (Source)

Taran Killam on When He Fell in Love With Cobie

Just when you thought Taran Killam and Cobie Smulders couldn’t’ get any cuter comes the story of how he knew she was The One.

“It was hot and heavy a month in,” Killam told Us Weekly at the John Dewar & Sons Traveling Whiskey Emporium in West Hollywood, California, on Wednesday, November 8. “She was driving me around and suddenly she did a U-turn for no reason and I was like, ‘What is happening? What are you doing?’ And she was like, ‘Sorry. It’s something I always do.’”

The Friends From College star, 37, had seen a little girl at a lemonade stand. “I was done,” Killam told Us. “I was done.”

Killam, 35, and Smulders, tied the knot in 2012 and are now parents of Shaelyn, 8, and a 2-year-old daughter whose name they’ve never revealed publicly. Though the couple have their hands full with two young kids, they recently slipped away for a romantic day date in New York City.

“We had a babysitter come and take care of the girls,” the SNL alum told Us. The pair, who relocated to L.A. from NYC, explored the Metropolitan Museum of Art and visited their old apartment downtown. “We just gave ourselves a day,” he says. “That was our way of saying goodbye to New York. It was lovely. We’ll go back a bunch.”

Killam says the family is settling into their new life in L.A after a 2,800 mile road trip in a 30-foot RV. “It was 10 days, 15 states,” he told Us. “We saw Graceland, the Grand Canyon, the north rim. It was very, very fun!” (Source)

“Friends From College” Renewed For Season Two

Netflix has renewed comedy series Friends from College for Season 2, Variety has confirmed.

The series follows a group of friends from Harvard played by Keegan-Michael Key, Cobie Smulders, Annie Parisse, Nat Faxon, Fred Savage, and Jae Suh Park. The series is described as “a comedic exploration of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past.” The series was co-created by Nicholas Stoller and Francesca Delbanco, who also serve as executive producers. Stoller also directs the series and Delbanco serves as a writer. Season 2 will consist of eight episodes just as Season 1 did.

The renewal comes despite the fact the show was not well received by critics, with Season 1 currently holding a 24% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

This is the latest renewal for a Netflix original series in the past few weeks. Last week, the streaming giant gave a second season order to crime drama Ozark. Prior to that, Netflix also renewed freshman comedy GLOW, which is a fictional account of a real all-female wrestling TV show from the 1980’s. That renewal came on the heels of the cancellation of the drama series Gypsy, starring Naomi Watts, after one season. (Source)

“Friends From College” TVLine Interview

When funny people are being funny, it’s best just to get out of their way and let them do their thing.
So when Friends From College stars Cobie Smulders and Fred Savage, as well as series co-creator Nick Stoller, started cracking themselves up while chatting with TVLine at a Netflix press event, we were glad our recorder was rolling: All the better to bring you in on the jokes.

Our topic of conversation: Their upcoming comedy, which is available Friday via the streaming video service. The series, the brainchild of Harvard alumni Stoller (The Carmichael Show) and wife Francesca Delbanco, follows a group of friends who met at the Ivy League university and have stayed close in the decades since graduation. In addition to How I Met Your Mother grad Smulders and Wonder Years alum Savage, the cast includes Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Nat Faxon (Ben and Kate), Annie Parisse (Law & Order) and Billy Eichner (Difficult People).

Read on as Savage, Smulders and Stoller do their thing.

TVLINE | Do we see flashbacks to the characters’ time at Harvard at all?
STOLLER | No. Flashbacks are tough. You either have to cast people who don’t look like them, or you do weird —
SMULDERS | We could look 20 years younger. [Laughs]
SAVAGE | I was going to lose the weight.
SMULDERS | I mean, what the f–k. Just give me a new hairstyle, and I look 21 again. [Laughs]
STOLLER | Correct.
SMULDERS | What are you talking about? Right, Fred? Just give [Keegan-Michael Key] a little bit of an afro, and we’re 21 again.
SAVAGE | I look a lot like my photo when I was 21. [Laughs]

TVLINE | The first few episodes focus on a triangle that includes Keegan’s Ethan, Cobie’s Lisa and Annie’s Sam. Are other characters going to have their own episodes or their own arcs as we move through the season?
STOLLER | Yeah. Everyone has different arcs, and we start with that relationship. But the whole show is just about nostalgia, whether it’s a good thing or a bad thing. And about how when you get together with your group of friends from, old group of friends, friends from college, you regress in a lot of ways… It can be both really helpful and loving to be around those people, and also not great.
