Margo Martindale has all bases covered
LATimes - over 3 years
The Contenders: 'The Millers' and 'August: Osage County' star works across the spectrum, from TV to film, comedy to drama Since winning the Emmy for playing shot-calling criminal matriarch Mags Bennett on "Justified," Margo Martindale has been doing impressive work across the spectrum. TV critics have singled out her performance opposite Will Arnett and Beau Bridges on the new CBS sitcom "The Millers," while film critics are buzzing about her tour-de-force supporting turn in "August: Osage County," the darkly comic drama, a Christmas release, in which she plays busybody Aunt Mattie Fae, who's keeping a secret that will tear the house asunder. "The director, John Wells, said to me, 'She's a force of nature,' so that's how I played it," Martindale says. "When she comes into the house, it's sort of like a bulldozer."

The Weekend Playlist: Amazon's Alpha House, Almost Human
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
Life on the Street as a player under scrutiny by the Senate's ethics committee (of which Goodman's character thinks he may be the ranking member, if only he'd ever attend); the very amusing Matt Malloy as a Nevada pol with a troubling "wimp factor" that he attempts to remedy with a memorable appearance on The Colbert Report; and filling a vacancy (occasioned by a terrific star cameo in the opening reel), Mark Consuelos as a hunky horndog who's happy to be able to hook up somewhere other than the Senate's cloak room. Trudeau knows this world of inane filibusters, self-righteous doublespeak and viral-media mockery all too well - "What's a meme?" wonders a senator who's become a laughing stock - and this savvy comedy nails the details (a bowl full of flag pins at the ready) down to the casting of the voices of the wives back home, including Julie White and Amy Sedaris, both of whom I hope we get to see further down the road. Alpha House, whose sting goes beyond the brittle farce of H ...

The Sizzling Broadway <i>Betrayal</i> of Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"There's nothing like the love of a good man!" said Julia Roberts over her shoulder to me after I'd commented on how young and beautiful the actress looks these days. This -- after she'd come all the way across the Barrymore Theater auditorium to give me a great hug before Mike Nichols' opening night of the celebrated Harold Pinter's "Betrayal." (Julia did indeed look spiffy in a sleek black dress and we had a brief chat about life, husband, children and everything except whatever she is doing next. She is a real star and one of my favorites.) • The VIP crowd included the de la Rentas, the Diller-von Furstenbergs, the Graydon Carters, Elaine May and Stanley Donen, Nick Pileggi, Candice and Marshall Rose, to name just a few. But in its own way, the night was understated. No red carpet, no mercy for the paparazzi -- everybody calm, cool and collected. Mr. Nichols I didn't see, but his bride, Diane Sawyer, was there cheering him on. • You probably already know how hard it will b ...

'The Millers' Premiere: Will Arnett's Divorce Inspires His Parents To Separate (VIDEO)
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Will fart jokes kill "The Millers" right out of the gate? That seems to be every critic's question. Bu now that the show has premiered, will viewers find anything else about the show enjoyable? Everyone seems to agree that creator Greg Garcia and company have assembled a stellar cast, with Will Arnett as a recently-divorced man whose parents -- played by Beau Bridges and Margo Martindale -- decide to split after they find out. Mom moved in with Arnett's Nathan, while Dad headed over to stay with Nathan's sister, Debbie (Jayma Mays). And then, there it was. Nathan walked through his living room. His mother, Carol, was sitting on the couch. “Did you fart?” he asked her. After sniffing the air, she replied, “Yes ... this happens when you’re older. They just slip out.” Critics weren't impressed with the lowbrow humor. "I’m not saying the show as a whole can’t be saved, but this first effort needed some refinement," wrote Entertainment Weekly's Samantha Highfill. "The characters ar ...

'Masters Of Sex' On Showtime: Lizzy Caplan Talks Playing A Feminist Antihero -- And Nipples
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Lizzy Caplan is one of the most interesting and entertaining actresses working today, and she doesn't disappoint in real life either. Honestly, that almost never happens. HuffPost TV sat down with Caplan to talk about her most intriguing role yet: Playing Virginia Johnson on Showtime's "Masters of Sex" (premieres Sun., Sept. 29 at 10 p.m. on Showtime) opposite Michael Sheen as William Masters. As one-half of Masters and Johnson, the famed sex researchers who began studying human sexual responses in men and women back in the '50s, Caplan gets to play one of the original feminists, but she's a character that's as flawed as any male antihero on cable TV. From being a sexual pioneer, to being an adulterer (for science!), to showing some serious nipple (again), Caplan discusses it all ... keep reading for her take on the show and insight into this unique role.

This Is VERY Not Safe For Work
Huffington Post - over 3 years
With Showtime's racy new drama "Masters of Sex" right around the corner, Showtime has released a trailer that lets viewers know exactly what they're in for. Based on actual 1950s events and figures, "Masters of Sex" follows Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) and William Masters (Michael Sheen) as two researchers on a mission to understand the science of sex. But from the trailer above, it's obvious the line between business and pleasure is easily blurred. "The study of sex is the study of the beginning of all life!" Masters says matter-of-factly, shortly after getting flustered when he asks Johnson what an orgasm feels like for a woman. Beau Bridges, who co-stars as a doctor on the show, admitted to having a very awkward first day. "The first thing I have to do is peer at a woman's vagina through a dildo while she masturbates ... and it's outfitted with a magnifying glass," he told HuffPost TV. "The poor woman who had to have her legs up in stirrups, I couldn't see ...

Jay Weston: Sidney Poitier's New Novel Is Superb!
Huffington Post - over 3 years
I read two books by famous show business personalities this weekend. One was a first novel by Sidney Poitier, Montaro Caine, while the other was a memoir, The Friedkin Connection, by film director William Friedkin. For various reasons, I have chosen to do a full review of only one of them, Sidney's novel, although I am also recommending Billy's searingly honest memoir, if only for its depiction of how he managed to make two of the most enduring films of our time, The French Connection and The Exorcist. I have had two incidents working with him of films not getting made (Judgement Day with Gregory Peck and The Hostages), which I might have had to recount in detail if I did a review, so I took the advice of a dear friend and deferred in that respect. After all, he is happily married to one of the great women of our world, the beautiful Sherry Lansing. (And I happened to have been at Richard Cohen's Oscar-viewing party where they met some 25 years ago. She said to him, ...

"I am the dean of the university where these experiments are happening. I'm sort of mentoring Masters -- he's my hope for the future -- so I'm a little freaked when he tells me what he's going to do." Bridges recounted a particularly memorable scene from the first episode, which led to a somewhat awkward encounter after filming: "The first thing I have to do is peer at a woman's vagina through a dildo while she mast ...
