Aaron Sorkin And Anne Hathaway Join Jessica Chastain In Defending Jeremy Strong From His New Yorker Profile

December 11, 2021 / Posted by:

Well, Aaron Sorkin and Anne Hathaway have now joined Jessica Chastain in Hollywood’s newest IT charitable cause. You hear that, Leonardo DiCaprio?! Scream at your pilot to divert your private jet from whatever environmental conference you’re headed to and fly to NYC for the inevitable JUSTICE4STRONG charity gala. Earlier this week, The New Yorker released a profile on Jeremy Strong, who plays Kendall Roy on Succession, and a lot of it covers his serious acting process. Jeremy’s process isn’t Jared Leto levels of method creepiness, but he refuses to rehearse and he doesn’t completely turn his character off when a scene ends. People who have worked with Jeremy were interviewed including Jeremy’s current TV daddy, Brian Cox, who said that he worries about what Jeremy does to himself to prepare for a scene. Brian repeated that on Wednesday’s episode of The Late Show with Seth Meyers by saying that he’s afraid Jeremy’s intense process will lead to early burnout.

The New Yorker piece wasn’t mean, but still, Jeremy’s friend Jessica Chastain put her on Captain Save-A-Method-Ho cap and called out the profile as “one-sided.” And now Aaron Sorkin and Anne Hathaway have both come to the defense of poor, persecuted Jeremy Strong. You know, because they hate that profile so much that they’re going to bring more attention to it so more people can read it!

Aaron Sorkin Hopes People Will Pay Less Attention To What Twitter Has To Say After Watching “Being The Ricardos”

December 4, 2021 / Posted by:

After the internet saw the trailers for Being The Ricardos, Aaron Sorkin’s movie about Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz’s marriage woes during the Red Scare, many dragged it, especially Nicole Kidman’s Lucy. But if Debra Messing sent Aaron Sorkin her picture and resume and let him know that she’s available for reshoots, he definitely tossed her picture and resume to the side. Because Aaron, who has defended his casting decisions before, has some THOUGHTS about the online backlash. Looks like Twitter is less Sorkin’s The Social Network and more Sorkin’s Enemy of the State!

Aaron Sorkin Defended His Casting Choices For “Being The Ricardos”

November 12, 2021 / Posted by:

If you’re tempted to watch Being The Ricardos out of morbid curiosity to see a minimally animated off-brand wax museum Lucille Ball with Nicole Kidman’s accent, you might want to think twice. I know writer/director Aaron Sorkin has been nominated for a bunch of Oscars and shit, but judging by a new interview he gave for The Hollywood Reporter, I’m not sure he’s ever enjoyed watching a movie in his life. In it, Aaron defends his decision to cast Nicole and Javier Bardiem as Lucy and Desi Arnaz by dragging I Love Lucy and admits that he only pulled from “a small pool of world-class actresses” for the part and that “finding an actress who looked like Lucille Ball wasn’t important to me.” So I guess Debra Messing really never had a shot.

Here’s The Full Trailer For “Being The Ricardos” Starring Nicole Kidman As Lucille Ball

November 10, 2021 / Posted by:

There’s a tiny off-camera, post-credits half-cackle in the just-released official trailer for Being The Ricardos that sounds kiiiinda like Lucille Ball but I’m not convinced it came from Nicole Kidman. I think it might have come from Lucy’s ghost since Nic’s face looks more like a smooth, well-kneaded hunk of dough with two raisins pushed in if for eyes than her famous mug. And not since Sally Field in Sybil has an actor done so many different and distinct voices for a single character. But hey, I’m not one to dwell on the negative. Just off the top of my head, what I can say about Nic’s performance based on this trailer is she’s got great wigs, beautiful wigs.

The Teaser Trailer For “Being The Ricardos” Is Here

October 19, 2021 / Posted by:

Someone please go check on Debra Messing, today is not going to be her best day. Because Amazon Prime Video has released a teaser trailer for Being the Ricardos, aka the movie that made everyone (Debra included) wonder if Aaron Sorkin’s glasses prescription was up to date when it was revealed he had cast Nicole Kidman as Lucille Ball. Eventually, we saw some pictures from the set, and Nicole Kidman’s Lucy pretty much just looked like Nicole Kidman in an emergency backup wig from the set of Big Little Lies. Now we’re seeing Nicole’s Lucy in motion along with the voice, and it will be up to you whether it elicits a nervous Lucy-style clenched-teeth “Eeeeeeeee.

New Pictures Of Nicole Kidman As Lucille Ball Are Not Encouraging

April 29, 2021 / Posted by:

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but Nicole Kidman is not trending on Twitter because she broke her NDA with Scientology and has confirmed that Tom Cruise is actually only 3’7” tall. It’s because new pictures of her in Lucille Ball drag for Being The Ricardos have been circulating. And Nicole’s lucky Lucy was no relation to the Gucci Gang, because Nicole has endured enough harassment from shady organizations to last a lifetime.
