GRACEPOINT: Anna Gunn Teases Her New Fox Drama

October 1, 2014 by  
Filed under #1 featured, Gracepoint


GRACEPOINT — an adaptation of the UK series, BROADCHURCH — kicks off its ten-episode event series run this Thursday, as Detectives Carver and Miller set out to figure out what led to a young boy’s murder in a (seemingly) peaceful town.

While David Tennant (Detective Carver) played the lead role in both this and BROADCHURCH, former BREAKING BAD star (and two-time Emmy winner) Anna Gunn (Detective Miller) was new to the world. I sat down with Gunn to talk about how she approached a show like this where secrecy means so much, the work/life balance for Miller (“She feels like she’s letting people down,” Gunn lamented), and relationship between Carver/Miller, and more…

Comments Off on Anna Gunn Reflects on Her THE MINDY PROJECT Guest Spot and Whether She’d Be Up to Return

Anna Gunn has done her share of dramatic projects on television recently — her next project is the haunting Fox event series, GRACEPOINT, an adaptation of the BBC series, BROADCHURCH, and before that, she spent five seasons (and won a couple of Emmys) as Skyler White on BREAKING BAD — but one of her the lighter spots she did this year was a guest spot on THE MINDY PROJECT’s second season as Sheila Hamilton, a doctor who tried to poach Mindy.

And while THE MINDY PROJECT showrunner Matt Warburton told me earlier this year he’d love to have Gunn back on the show, so far, there’s been no word about whether she will pop up for the show’s third season. So when I spoke with Gunn about GRACEPOINT on Monday (and check back for that chat soon!), I couldn’t resist asking her about her time on the show, and whether she’d be willing to come back…

Comments Off on Backstage at the 2013 Emmy Awards: Reactions from the Winners

Sure, you saw the touching — or weird — Emmy speeches during the live broadcast last night, but oftentimes the real fun (and the strangest comments) come when the winners come backstage and speak with the press.

Take a look what many of last night’s winners had to say, including a winner who took the time to plug another show, a (fake) 30 ROCK reunion pitch, weird Emmy statues plans, and more…

Merritt Wever (Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series)

"I wanted to thank a lot of people," Wever noted of her very, very short speech. "I wanted to thank everybody at Showtime. I wanted to most of all thank [NURSE JACKIE star] Edie's hard to do those!"
