One banana

The comedy-folk duo Garfunkel and Oates has enjoyed a fair amount of notoriety over the past decade or so, partly because they fear no subject matter, and partly because they’re so gosh-darn cute. (And the name, borrowed from a couple of rock and roll second bananas, is enough to make you smile all by itself.) Riki Lindhome is the Garfunkel of the act, and she knows her way around red carpets:

Fun Size, weirdly enough, is a Nickelodeon picture about the horrors of Halloween, in which Riki (born “Erika”) plays a smallish role.

She’s also recorded music separately from G&O. This song appeared on her 2011 EP Yell At Me From Your Car:

Next film: Under the Silver Lake, described as “neo-noir.” One hopes it does well: in 2013’s Hell Baby, she demonstrated that she could do funny naked, but in its one week of release it grossed less than $9,000.
