Amy Poehler To Receive 2,566th Walk of Fame Star
Comedienne Amy Poehler is to be honored with the 2,566th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The Golden Globe winner will unveil the coveted plaque during a ceremony in front of the Hollywood Wax Museum on Friday.
Her former Parks and Recreation co-star Rashida Jones and the show’s creator Mike Schur have been tapped to salute their friend at the Walk of Fame induction. “We are thrilled to add Amy Poehler to our Walk of Fame,” Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez said in a statement. “She has kept us in stitches for so many years with her career as one of Hollywood’s top comedic actresses. Fans should be ready for a ceremony full of laughter!” Poehler shot to fame as a featured player on comedy show Saturday Night Live, and the 12-time Emmy nominee also runs her own production company and became a number one New York Times best-seller with her memoir Yes Please last year.
