It looks like Christina Hendricks is dealing with her departure from Sterling Cooper & Partners by hitting the road. According to multiple sources, the Mad Men actress has joined the main cast of Roadies, a music-centric comedy created, written and to be directed by Jerry Maguire helmer Cameron Crowe for premium cable network Showtime.
Roadies follows the day-to-day life of individuals involved in a massively successful rock tour, as seen through the eyes of music’s unsung heroes – the crew members who make each show happen. Hendricks will take on the meaty role of Shelli, the band’s production manager, who is ““ingenious, tough, but privately emotional, married to her job… and scary-good at it.”
Luke Wilson, Imogen Poots, Rafe Spall, Peter Cambor and Keisha Castle-Hughes are also on board the ensemble series in main roles, but Hendricks’ involvement just makes us more excited for what’s sure to be a »

Cameron Crowe’s Showtime pilot Roadies has received a shot of sass with the news that Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks is joining the cast. She’ll get on the bus alongside Imogen Poots (fast becoming the most ubiquitous name in showbiz) and Luke Wilson in this comedic take on the behind the scenes craziness of a rock tour. Promising territory and one ex-music journo Crowe is no stranger to. He covered similar ground in 2000’s Almost Famous. Hendricks will play production manager Shelli, described as “tough, but privately emotional, married to her job… and scary-good at it.” Not a million miles away from her role as Joan in Mm, but no less welcome for it.

Hendricks has joined the cast of the new Showtime pilot Roadies, which was created, written, and will be directed by filmmaker Cameron Crowe. The show follows the day-to-day life of a successful rock tour as seen through the eyes of music’s unsung heroes, the crew members who make each show happen. Hendricks will play a character named Shelli, the band’s production manager, who is described as “ingenious, tough, but privately emotional, married to her job… and scary-good at it.” The cast was already filling out quite nicely with Luke Wilson, Imogen Poots, and Rafe Spall onboard, but Hendricks makes a positively excellent addition. More after the jump. While Crowe created Roadies and will be intimately involved in the series as an executive producer, Winnie Holzman »

I am happy to see Christina landed a new show. I do think that it will be odd though to see her play a more modern role. I don’t think any of us expect that shock from her. However, it will allow her to stretch »

Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig are fantastic as estranged twins with a family history of depression. After a failed suicide attempt, Milo (Hader) goes to live with Maggie (Wiig) and her Golden Retriever-like husband, Lance (Luke Wilson). Although Maggie's life looks perfect from the outside, she's got just as many self-destructive secrets at Milo. Sweet and sad, this is definitely Wiig's best dramatic role to date.
Tina Fey and Jason Bateman lead an impressive ensemble cast in this dramedy about a family forced together for their father's funeral, and the seven days of mourning customary known as sitting shiva in the Jewish tradition. Jane Fonda, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, Kathryn Hahn, Ben Schwartz, »
