Okay, word is out so I can talk about this and show the trailer. I am sooooo beyond excited. Working on an Aaron Sorkin project for HBO with actors like these, OMG! And the part is so much fun. I can’t give too much away but think, if you can, of a combo of Ted Turner and Rupert Murdock, but a woman-me. Jeff Daniels is one of the leads and a friend of mine. I think he is a brilliant actor…subtle, deep, nuanced, who can be funny and serious and moving. He took me aside the day of the table read (the first time all the actors, director, producers and writers sit around a huge table and read through the entire episode-I first appear at the end of the 3rd episode) and he gave me great advice. What a gift! My scene had 4 pages of speech. I loved it so much, being able to sink my teeth into meaty stuff like that. It’s funny, cause if I did get a word or a comma wrong and then got corrected I could feel the difference immediately. Every little detail made a true difference.
I was allowed to see the pilot so that I could catch the vibe and understand the context into which I was stepping. All I can say is WOW! This series is going to knock your socks off. I had to stand up and cheer. Can’t say more.
