Glow's Betty Gilpin Prepares For Wrestling Dramedy's Season 2: 'I Feel Like My Soul Was in a Five-Car Pileup'
The thing about being one of the leads in a 1980s-set dramedy about lady wrestlers is, your look is still stuck in the Reagan era even after the cameras stop rolling for the day.

“I’m looking at my gel French manicure now, and that, combined with my spray tan, every public place I walk into, I want to clink a glass, like, ‘Ding, ding, ding’ and announce that this is for a character and not from my personal choice,” Glow‘s Betty Gilpin says, chuckling.

New Extended TV Spot for Spielberg's 'The Post' Builds Up the Intensity

"Do you have the papers?" "Not yet..." 20th Century Fox is pushing strong with Steven Spielberg's surprise end-of-the-year drama The Post, which seems to be getting good buzz after its first screenings. This new extended TV spot comes hot on the tail of the first official trailer a few weeks ago, and it's just as intense of a tease. The Post is about about The Washington Post and the publishing of the Pentagon Papers about the Vietnam War in 1971. This seems like a very important, necessary story to tell in these times. Tom Hanks stars as editor Ben Bradlee, and Meryl Streep stars as Post publisher Katharine Graham. The cast includes Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford, Zach Woods. I'm looking forward to seeing this movie for many good reasons, but mostly because it's Spielberg,

Oscars: Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Post’ Arrives With the Zeitgeist in Its Sights

Oscars: Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Post’ Arrives With the Zeitgeist in Its Sights
When producer Amy Pascal first acquired Liz Hannah’s spec script “The Post” she thought, “Hillary Clinton is going to win [the presidency], so this will be perfect,” the former Sony Pictures head said at the film’s first west coast screening on Sunday night. “It was the story of a woman finding her voice, and an entire country finding its voice.”

Last year’s election, of course, went in another direction, but it was still an important theme to explore, perhaps more important than ever.

Alongside members of the film’s cast and crew, Pascal was speaking to an audience of Academy, guild, and press members who filled Fox’s Darryl F. Zanuck Theater for a look at director Steven Spielberg’s latest effort, one of the awards season’s most anticipated releases. It also screened in New York on Sunday, with Spielberg and key players Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep among those in attendance.

Steven Spielberg’s Pentagon Papers Drama ‘The Post’ Earns Standing Ovation After First Screening
Even Steven Spielberg can’t escape the allure of timely story. Just nine months after getting Liz Hannah’s spec script — and mere days after actually completing the final film — Spielberg’s fast-tracked Pentagon Papers drama “The Post” launched its first screening last night in New York City. The film was greeted with an extended standing ovation, one surely egged on by both admiration for the film and for the big stars on display at a post-screening panel, including Spielberg and his stars Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Bob Odenkirk, and Matthew Rhys.

The film follows Streep as Washington Post publisher Kay Graham and Hanks as editor Ben Bradlee, as the paper and its journalists attempt to declassify the so-called Pentagon Papers during the Vietnam War. It’s an eerily timely story, one about the urgent need for good journalism, what happens when the government attempts to hide its misdeeds, and the ultimate value of truth.
