  1. With all the H:LOTS crossover talk, I'm surprised no one has mentioned that JK Simmons appeared on that series in S4's For God and Country. It was the first thing I'd ever seen him in, and he made quite an impression. He and Andre Braugher had some intense scenes together. I can't find a clip, but here's an image.
  2. Exactly, that's why I focussed on the one with Julie Christie where we can see her feet. 😉 Also going by seeing Beatty in many movies next to other actors, male and female. He is definitely a 6-footer.
  3. Scroll down here for a photo with Julie Christie, reportedly 5'2" and in flat shoes. Beatty towered over her. I've never had any trouble believing he was over 6' tall.
  4. Doubtful. An article in EW says: Winter is effectively over in Chicago, and I think they finished location shooting here a while ago, so I doubt they were planning on more outdoor shots of winter. I understand the series is working out of a studio on the west side. That's probably where additional production was to take place. Bummed to hear about the delay, but Fargo will be one more thing to look forward to with gratitude when this is all over!
  5. From this NY Times review, it sounds like the series is as insufferable as I found the book to be:
  6. Believe me, it was distracting and annoying on MY small screen.
  7. Thanks. I'm not remembering her, but I'm sure my memory will be jogged when I see her again. 🙂
  8. Who the heck is Meg? Is she a member of the widows support group?
  9. I think I was with you up until your last 5 words. These dresses were truly elegant? I may need some more context. 🙂
  10. Indeed. From a CNN article: There's usually an autopsy in such circumstances, no? Sounds like maybe an aneurysm or previously unknown heart problem. So sad.
  11. I also loved his shout-out to Ridley and Geena. I'm sure that if Thelma & Louise hadn't come along, Brad would have made his mark in some other role, but damn, that was one HELL of an introduction to a wide audience.
  12. She was nominated for Supporting Actress for Adaptation as well. I think that and Into the Woods were much clearer cases than TDwP, but I'd argue she was secondary there as well.
  13. Thanks, Charlie Baker! Somehow, I've never managed to see Spartacus, so I'll set my DVR.
  14. Apparently it's more about Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys), the journalist who wrote about Mr. Rogers. But Meryl Streep was nominated for Best Actress for The Devil Wears Prada, when I would have called her supporting in that movie (Anne Hathaway was the lead).
  15. I read somewhere recently that Geena pushed to have him cast as JD in Thelma and Louise. What a break-out role for Brad Pitt that was -- almost 30 years ago! I skipped over commercials so I didn't even see that there was a promo for LFE. My hate isn't as intense as yours, but it was NOT a good novel. I don't think we were supposed to. First time I've heard it, but it sounded like a pastiche of several of his other songs. Not impressed. Or maybe voters woke up to the fact that it wasn't that great a movie? I still can't believe the acclaim for The Irishman. It felt like the one category that might have a surprise winner, but I guess no other nominee generated the same enthusiasm. Re In Memoriam: the Oscars version is always an abbreviated mess. Watch what TCM does instead.
