Last year Isla made a cameo appearance in Danish comedy Klown Forever, the sequel to the successful 2010 comedy film Klown. There’s very little out there about Isla’s involvement with the project, but I did read that her husband is a big fan of the first movie, which probably explains why she was snapped up for it. Isla’s appearance was very short, but she was pretty funny in it (she plays a neighbour of the main character who comes over to complain about something), and the movie itself was worth a watch. Read more about the film on our Filmography page, and find HD screencaptures in our Gallery…

Isla appears on the front cover of The Daily Mail newspaper’s Sunday ‘You’ magazine supplement today, with a fantastic new interview to promote the upcoming release of her children’s book ‘Marge In Charge‘. In the interview, Isla talks about her career, why she enjoys reading and writing, her favourite children’s books, social media, aging, and who she’d like to work with in the future. Alongside this is a fun and colourful new photoshoot.

The Daily Mail also published an extract from the book to give us a sneak peek of Marge.

Read the interview below, and find the book extract at The Daily Mail website.

‘I wish I had the secret to balancing it all as a mum’: Actress Isla Fisher on juggling movies with motherhood and writing her way out of a midlife crisis

When Great Gatsby actress Isla Fisher (aka Mrs Sacha Baron Cohen) came to a crossroads in her life, she shook things up by making bedtime more interesting – both for her children and herself. In the process she found a new career, as Miranda Thompson discovers

When your films are Oscar-winning and you’re half of one of Hollywood’s hottest couples, what’s left to achieve? For The Great Gatsby’s Isla Fisher, it was simply a case of returning to a long-held passion: writing.

Away from the LA stardust, the actress, who turned 40 this year, is a self-confessed bibliophile who devoured two books a week before the arrival of her children with A-list husband Sacha Baron Cohen (the man behind Borat and Ali G). At 18, long before Hollywood came calling, she also published two young adult novels (co-written with her mum) in between stints on Aussie soap Home and Away.

This summer, Isla will be back in the bookshop with her comic children’s novel, Marge in Charge, which stars the eponymous Marge – a pint-sized babysitter with rainbow hair and a penchant for causing mayhem. Isla invented the character as a bedtime story and was inspired to put pen to paper after her brood kept requesting more of her.

The wellbeing of children is clearly important to Isla. In December last year, she and Sacha made the headlines for their £670,000 donation to charities working with victims of the conflict in Syria. ‘There are 8.4 million children in need in Syria and its neighbouring countries,’ she says. ‘We are facing the biggest humanitarian crisis since World War Two.’ Their donation paid for measles vaccinations for more than 250,000 children.

Back in 2013 Isla appeared on US daytime talk show The Talk to promote Now You See Me, in which she talked about the movie, her husband, and showed the hosts a card trick. I’ve now added screencaptures from the show to our Gallery, and we’ll have the video for you soon. Big thanks to our friend Colleen for the video from this appearance!

While searching for press articles missing from our site, I came across scans from a fantastic spread People magazine did to promote The Great Gatsby back in 2013. I’d never seen this photo before, and it’s a really nice one of the main cast + director. Have a look in our Gallery:

To tie-in with the release of the first trailer for Keeping Up With The Joneses yesterday, and have posted their set visit reports. In them, Isla and her castmates talk more about their characters and comedy in cinema. Read the Isla-specific parts below, and click the source links for the full articles:

Set Visit: Keeping Up with the Joneses featuring Isla Fisher and Gal Gadot

“Hurry up and wait” is an idiom you’ll often find applied to film sets. With dozens of people on a film set working together towards a common goal, each department has its own amount of preparation to take care of before anyone even stands in front of the camera. It’s the nature of the business, and in regards to KEEPING UP WITH JONESES, this worked to my advantage. I’m in the break room that, while cold, is also basically four bare, white walls. You’d think it was the cargo bay of the Tantive IV or something. Thankfully the stunt crew is hanging out in close proximity and going over some of the choreography of the upcoming fight. I’ll tell ya, it’s fascinating to watch these people improv their way through a fight like comedians do through a conversation.

Before long, the on-set contact leads me back out to the Hotel Suite set to check out more of what’s being shot. We decide to take the scenic route this time around which allows me a kick-ass view of the massive city backdrop that’s hanging outside of the hotel room windows. Make no mistake, when you’re standing there on-set, a well-lit backdrop makes all the difference in comparison to a green screen.

I return to the dining room of the Odyssey suite set to find trays of earplugs being passed around. A Scrubs-esque fantasy ensues where Jon Hamm and I go to a progressive rock concert and out for a bite to eat afterwards (he lets me have a bite from his meal – what a gentleman). In reality, I’m getting the next best thing; he’s going to shoot a gun! Okay, so it’s not a real gun (of course), but the idea of Jon “Archer” Hamm dispatching goons with firearms is too exciting a prospect. I love me some Mad Men, but to finally see him fight with bullets instead of brains is total catharsis. Immediately my mind pencils in KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES as the “unofficial” series finale to Mad Men. I take a seat next to the table, having a great view of the monitors and the Hamm himself. As Gadot waits around for her earplugs, a restless Jon Hamm reaches over and playfully pokes her in the ear with his pinky. What did I say? The man’s funny! I’d like to think there’s one crew member who deals with Hamm’s antics day-in and day-out and is just thinking, “I’m real sick of your shit, Hamm!” No, that’s impossible.
