Why Julia Roberts Turned Down THE NORMAL HEART Twice Before Saying Yes
by BWW News Desk - Apr 21, 2014

HBO will soon release it's highly anticipated film version of The Normal Heart, and according to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, securing Jula Roberts as 'Dr. Brookner' wasn't an easy feat. Roberts reportedly turned down the role twice because she 'only saw the character's hostility and rage.' When director Ryan Murphy presented her with this version of the film, she thought: 'This is getting ridiculous. I need to pay attention to why this keeps coming back to me. I suddenly understood who she was in terms of this scary, inexplicable plague-what originally seemed [to me] to be anger was actually her determined pursuit to be part of a solution that she wasn't part of with the first plague that she experienced. Everything fell into place for me after that. I could see these are just really scared people who won't give up on finding the answers.' (more...)

Glee-Cap: Safety First, Safety Last, Safety Always
by Matt Tamanini - Apr 16, 2014

Somehow, I think your normal GLEE-capper, Robert Lawlor, knew this was going to be a down week for GLEE when he asked me to pinch-hit for him (don't worry if you don't know what that means, it's a sports term). While I have been generally quite pleased with the majority of episodes over the last two seasons, this episode felt like a throwback to Season 2 or 3, where far too many episodes felt like simply filler. While they might have ultimately been entertaining, they primarily served as a placeholder until we got to the more plot-specific episodes. With Kurt's attack last week and Rachel's 'Funny Girl' opening a week away, this episode felt disappointingly like a very low-stakes buffer between the two. (more...)
