AND IT’S A WRAP ON “GRACE & FRANKIE”!

Posted on November 26, 2014, in My Blog, with 17 Comments

We finished shooting at 2am last Saturday morning. Whew! It’s very nice to be able to sleep in and not have to learn pages of dialogue every day. It’s also bittersweet because I already miss my “Grace & Frankie” family, especially Lily. Towards the end of shooting on Saturday–like at midnight–she and I got onto a laughing jag …

Posted on November 6, 2014, in My Blog, with 10 Comments

This Sunday on HBO at 9pm, the final season of The Newsroom begins. There are only 6 episodes this season and I hope you watch them because Aaron Sorkin has outdone himself with the finale he has created. All the actors (and HBO execs) were on pins and needles wondering what he would come up with . . . especially …

HAVING FUN ON “GRACE & FRANKIE”

Posted on September 3, 2014, in My Blog, with 19 Comments

Okay, it’s starting to get real fun on this new Netflix series I’m shooting with Lily Tomlin (Don’t know when it will air–sometime after the thirteen episodes of the first season are finished –and you can start binge watching!). But I want to apologize to my blog readers because I haven’t been writing much. That’s because we shoot such long …

STARTING THE NEW SERIES, “GRACE & FRANKIE,” WITH LILY TOMLIN, MARTIN SHEEN & SAM WATERSTON

I was very excited when Martin Sheen was cast as my husband and Sam Waterston as Lily’s. It feels good to have my pal from “The Newsroom” with us on this new adventure. Most of my Newsroom scenes were with him and I grew to care for him a lot. I’ve never worked with Martin before but we’ve met on …

I feel very sad. Being on this show, being able to say Aaron Sorkin’s brilliant dialogue, working with amazing actors who also happen to be exceptional people– Jeff Daniels, Sam Waterston, Emily Mortimer, Chris Messina.. Has been a huge experience and real treat. I’ve learned a lot watching all of them and talking to them.

This last series of scenes …

This film, “Youth,” has been a wonderful and very different experience for me. For those of you who are unfamiliar with director Sorrentino’s work, he won the Best Foreign Film Oscar this year for “The Great Beauty” which was a …
