Aging Out: Hollywood's Problem With Women Over 40
Huffington Post - over 3 years
My friend Jenica Bergere is on the cusp. Jenica is pregnant with her second child, and at six months in, she laughs because she looks as if she's at nine months and ready to pop. At 39, she's glowing and lovely in her typical rocker-mama outfits, with her vivid red hair and sparkling blue eyes. Jenica's the star of my short film Ending Up. With nearly a hundred acting credits on her résumé, she's a pro whose comedic edge and vulnerability shine through on screen. Yet, at age 39, she calls herself "the almost girl" and feels a huge amount of pressure looming over her. "In television and film, you have a certain amount of time to market and brand yourself," says Jenica. "If you don't "hit it" -- if you don't get it right by being a star of a TV show or a film by the time you're 40 -- then when the clock strikes 41, supposedly, you can forget about being successful. You're put out to pasture, and then you can come back when you're Betty White." Jenica feels so much pressure to "hit ...

Dylan McDermott Skipping 'American Horror Story' Season 3?
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Dylan McDermott has joined "Hostages," TVLine reports. The CBS pilot, which is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and already has Toni Collette attached, follows a Washington, D.C. family caught in the middle of a massive political conspiracy. On "Hostages" (based on an Israeli series), Collette's role is the matriarch Ellen, a surgeon who's forced to save her family's lives, and McDermott will play Duncan, "a righteous FBI agent at the center of said conspiracy whose role will come as a surprise," according to TVLine. Should the pilot get picked up to series, it's possible McDermott won't be able to stop by the upcoming season of "American Horror Story," which has alumni Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Frances McDormand and Taissa Farmiga attached.

US Magazine - over 4 years
Private Practice's current season will be its last, series creator Shonda Rimes announced via WhoSay October 19. It will consist of 13 episodes.

WATCH: 'If There's Nothing Wrong With GMOs, Why Not Put It On The Label'?
Popeater - over 4 years
Celebrities from Danny DeVito to Dave Matthews and Bill Maher lent their voices to a new PSA in favor of California's Proposition 37. The legislation, if passed, would require mandatory labeling of foods containing genetically modified organisms -- commonly known as GMOs. Sponsored by consumer advocacy group Food & Water Watch, the "Right To Know" video asks California voters to vote "yes" on Prop 37 on November 6. "Knowing if you're eating or buying genetically engineered food is not your right," DeVito jokes in the video. Other celebs including Bill Maher, Jillian Michaels, Emily Deschanel, John Cho, Glenn Howerton, Kaitlin Olson, KaDee Strickland and Kristin Bauer van Straten chime in, offering an alternative, such as moving to another country where citizens do have the right to know if their food contains GMOs. Appearing on the state's November ballot, Prop 37 has been hotly contested with opponents of GMO labels pouring tens of millions of dollars into eff ...

Comment on Grey’s Anatomy Boss On Cut Scandal, Kate Walsh Exits Private Practice by wvaltv
Boom Tron - over 4 years
Playing catch-up with “Private Practice” on Netflix and have been watching all the changes with every character on the show. Throughout the years, I’ve had a love/hate relationship with the Addison character, played wonderfully by Kate Walsh – and I can contribute my fickle emotions to great writing on the series. There’s somewhat of hole, I’ve missed most of Season 5, yet remember the excellent 2-part show on Amelia’s love/drug addiction using masterfully the Mary J. Blige’s latest release as soundtrack (please clear the licensing with all your musical artists featured on Season 5 for that DVD & Netflix release, Please!) – and I need to find out exactly what happened with Tim Daly’s Pete character. Writing him off with a death in this sixth season opener seems cruel however it seems budget cutbacks affects more than just the regular folks like me. Daly will land on his feet and Walsh will definitely be back on the small or big screen. I’m just very sad these characters have an ...

Private Practice In Private Talks For ABC Final Season
World TVPC - almost 5 years
ABC are said to be in discussion with the production team of medical drama Private Practice to sign a renewal deal for a final sixth season, contrary to popular belief that the show would be ending with the final episode of its fifth season this month. While the renewal is not expected to be a big one, fans of the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off hoping that it will not be over soon could have a temporary reprieve with rumours that their will be 13 new episodes in the planned last run, although this could be boosted to 18 or 22 episodes should headlining star Kate Walsh renew her contract past 13. The proposed move is thought to be the result of an increase in ratings for the show, with a recent seasonal high of an average of 8.35m viewers during a new Tuesday night slot. A final decision is expected to be made by the network on Private Practice (as well as other shows Body of Proof and GCB) after running through pilots of potential new original shows, which include action drama Last Resort ...

    THIRTIES
  • 2009
    Age 33
    In 2009, Strickland appeared in the music video for Rascal Flatts's "Here Comes Goodbye".
    More Details Hide Details Strickland has cited Jessica Lange, Holly Hunter, Diane Keaton (in Annie Hall), Ione Skye (her Fever Pitch co-star) and Jane Fonda as her inspirations and/or influences; for The Grudge, she mimicked Fonda's performance in Klute (1971) and her "brilliant way in that film of creating tension and fear for the audience just by walking down a hallway and looking over her shoulder." She noted the input of her acting coach, Maggie Flanagan, who instructed Strickland to watch films with the sound turned off to gauge the quality and comprehensibility of a performance, and who Strickland credits as her "Jedi Knight". Strickland cites her work ethic and her "active imagination" as sources of inspiration when she is required to convey certain emotions, particularly negative ones. She said she does not practise method acting, but that actors can bring to a role elements that are, in her words, "an extension of their life experience". According to her, she hopes to have her experience of growing up in an emotionally warm environment incorporated into her work. Strickland has spoken of her difficulty conveying different "versions" of emotions such as fear to different members of a worldwide film-watching audience, saying "what really kept me going was trying to communicate something universal." She said she is extremely flattered when people, particularly her fans, genuinely relate to her when her "version of storytelling" and work as an actress communicates to them.
  • 2007
    Age 31
    Strickland was among the actors who picketed alongside writers during the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike.
    More Details Hide Details Strickland also works closely with the nation's largest anti-sexual assault organization, RAINN. When Private Practice creator Shonda Rhimes wrote a storyline in which Strickland's character was brutally assaulted and raped, Strickland turned to RAINN in order to make sure that her portrayal of Charlotte's recovery was as true to life as possible. Through her work with RAINN for this storyline, Strickland felt a personal connection with the group and decided to become an advocate for the organization. Since then she has spoken out for the passage of the SAFER act to eliminate the backlog of untested DNA evidence and has become a vocal advocate for using DNA evidence to solve rape cases. She also worked with Gorjana to create an exclusive piece of jewelry for RAINN, in which 80% of the sale price goes directly to the organization.
    She joined the cast of the Grey's Anatomy spin-off Private Practice, which began airing in September 2007; and portrayedCharlotte King, chief of staff at the show's local hospital and a doctor specializing in urologic surgery, and later sexology.
    More Details Hide Details In 1996, Strickland appeared briefly in the music video for Oasis's "Don't Look Back In Anger".
    Strickland appeared as a lawyer and love interest in the film American Gangster, which stars Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington in 2007.

  • 2006
    Age 30
    On November 10, 2006, she married Behr in Ojai, California, in a ceremony that included elements of Japanese culture.
    More Details Hide Details Strickland said her experience planning the wedding aided her preparation for her role in The Wedding Bells. Her work on the wedding provided the inspiration for the wedding garden of Casa de Estrellas (House of Stars), a Santa Fe, New Mexico, luxury inn and spa. Behr proposed to her on her birthday. On October 17, 2013, the couple welcomed their first child, a son named Atticus Elijah Behr.
  • TWENTIES
  • 2005
    Age 29
    When asked about her love life in February 2005, Strickland said it was "quiet".
    More Details Hide Details
    In late 2005, she joined the cast of The Flock, a crime drama featuring Richard Gere, Claire Danes and singer Avril Lavigne about a federal agent assigned to track down a missing girl and a paroled sex offender (played by Strickland).
    More Details Hide Details Strickland said it was important to participate in such a story because she felt members of society need to consider and be responsible for their views on the sex offender counterculture, which she says "is actually not counter at all, it's very real, very next door to you." Strickland's first aired television project as a cast regular was the David E. Kelley-produced series The Wedding Bells. According to her, she wanted to be in the series because "the subject of love and commitment is something to me that I want to walk into every day. It's a lot better than dead bodies." The show began airing on the Fox Network in March 2007, and it was canceled the following month. The Baltimore Sun called it "awful in ways that make the word 'awful' seem inadequate cast is not a bad one at all, but just terrifically ill-served by the material."
    In early 2005, Strickland was cast in the pilot episode for the fact-based ABC television series Laws of Chance.
    More Details Hide Details It was based on the career of Kelly Siegler, a highly successful Houston, Texas-based assistant district attorney. Strickland, whose co-stars in the pilot included Frances Fisher and Bruce McGill, said she was "really excited to have the opportunity to portray this phenomenal lady", but the series was dropped from development a few months later. Strickland was also cast in the independently financed 1950s-set film Walker Payne as laid-off stripminer Jason Patric's love interest; in a review of the film at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival, Variety wrote that Strickland was "elegant".
    On the film's 2005 release, she received praise from PopMatters magazine, which described her as "irrepressible" in her role, and from MSNBC, which said she and JoBeth Williams "sometimes rescue picture from its plodding moments".
    More Details Hide Details The film raised Strickland's profile further, though its critical response was mixed and it performed moderately at the box office.
    After she moved to New York City, Strickland appeared in Adam Bhala Lough's filmmaking debut, Bomb the System, which received unenthusiastic notices from critics and was not shown outside film festivals until 2005.
    More Details Hide Details
    In 2005, Strickland garnered positive critical comment for the romantic comedy Fever Pitch, and in 2007, she was a cast regular in the television show The Wedding Bells and subsequently was added to the cast of Private Practice.
    More Details Hide Details Strickland has spoken against the emphasis placed on beauty in the Los Angeles acting community, in which she says her Southern U.S. background has helped to distinguish herself from other blonde-haired actors. She has spoken of an affinity for her strong female characters and a desire to avoid sexualizing or sensationalizing her self-presentation as a woman. She also has worked closely with the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN) after participating in a storyline in which her Private Practice character Charlotte King was raped. Strickland was born in Blackshear, Georgia to Susan Strickland, a nurse, and Dee Strickland, a high school football coach, principal and superintendent. KaDee's birthname is Katherine Dee; her parents combined the K in Katherine with her father's name to make KaDee. She was raised in Patterson, Georgia, which she said is a "one-stoplight town", and she had a job picking tobacco on a local farm for eight years. When she was a child, Strickland watched the Woody Allen film Annie Hall (1975) and was, as she put it, "wanting to be in that place, and being completely taken with the energy of those people. I wanted to be in it". During her childhood, she was well known locally as a member of the Strickland family and for her extracurricular activities and achievements (she was the Homecoming Queen in elementary, middle and high school, the student council president and a cheerleader).
  • 2004
    Age 28
    Strickland is an advocate of the arts. In 2004, before the release of Anacondas, she hosted the art debut of fellow actress Heidi Jayne Netzley at the Edgemar Center for the Arts in Santa Monica, California.
    More Details Hide Details
    In late 2004, Strickland embarked on what she called "the craziest job I've ever had": a role in the Farrelly brothers film Fever Pitch, a baseball-themed romantic comedy starring Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon (Strickland's Anything Else co-star) and based on the Nick Hornby book.
    More Details Hide Details Strickland said it was "a blast" to play "such a maniac", particularly after playing emotionally traumatised characters in Anacondas and The Grudge.
  • 2003
    Age 27
    Strickland appeared in two romantic comedy films in 2003.
    More Details Hide Details Anything Else, written and directed by Woody Allen, featured her as the girlfriend of Jason Biggs's character (whom he snubs for Christina Ricci's Amanda Chase); she said it was a "dream come true" to work with Allen, of whom she is an "obsessive diehard" fan. The film was greeted with lukewarm reviews and dismal ticket sales, though Strickland later referred to it as her "big break". The second, Something's Gotta Give (starring Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton), was a major critical and commercial success, though Strickland's part in the film was brief. She played the girlfriend of Keaton's character's ex-husband (played by Paul Michael Glaser), a relationship involving age disparity that raised the eyebrows of Keaton and her daughter (Amanda Peet). The following year, she made brief appearances in the direct-to-cable independent film Knots and the poorly received satirical comedy The Stepford Wives with Nicole Kidman, playing a partygoer and a game show contestant, respectively.
    In 2003, Strickland was cast opposite Eddie Cibrian in the pilot episode for an uncommissioned small screen serial adaptation of John Grisham's novel The Street Lawyer.

  • 1999
    Age 23
    Concurrent to her film work, Strickland acquired stage experience in productions such as A Requiem for Things Past in mid-1999, and John Patrick Shanley's Women of Manhattan.

    Strickland's career began in 1999 with a brief appearance as a mourner at a funeral after-party in The Sixth Sense, a two-line part that she received after impressing writer-director M.
    More Details Hide Details Night Shyamalan when reading lines for those auditioning for the film. According to Strickland, her role in the film helped her learn to temper her fake crying. The same year, she served as an extra in the independent film The Sterling Chase, and appeared in a small role opposite Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie in James Mangold's drama Girl, Interrupted. When staying in Philadelphia, Strickland had opportunities to take part in other films in production in and around the city. Those included Rel Dowdell's Train Ride, a date rape thriller filmed in 1998, but not commercially released until 2005 because of financing problems. She was also cast in the crime drama Diamond Men with Robert Forster and Donnie Wahlberg; it opened to sparkling reviews, with Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times declaring it "a fantastic film, with a good cast".
