Australia's Rebel Wilson first broke into American consciousness in Bridsemaids — via one fell "cascade of frozen peas on festering back tattoo" swoop — and, a scant year and a half later, she's hosting the MTV Movie Awards. Boy, that certainly escalated quickly.
Not that I'm complaining — Rebel Wilson is hilarious, and hats off to MTV for rolling the dice with her perhaps a touch earlier than would traditionally make sense on the Arc of Fame and Celebrity and Having People Know Who You Are. She's spent the time since Bridesmaids doing work in Bachelorette and What to Expect When You're Expecting, but her showiest role to date was in Pitch Perfect, which Grantland already told you is the best movie of the year (more or less). She's also booked a promising-sounding ABC series called Super Fun Night, a single-camera comedy that originally went to pilot as a multi-camera show at CBS (what a world!). As Deadline explains, it's about three nerdy friends as they go about "their 'funcomfortable' quest to have 'super fun' every Friday night," and it has already booked 30 Rock veteran John Riggi as showrunner/director/producer/guy who gets the whole wheat bagels.
