Exclusive: Why Carrie Preston Was 'Concerned' Elsbeth Didn't Fit in on 'The Good Fight'

17 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Carrie Preston wasn’t anticipating playing Elsbeth Tascioni, the quirky lawyer who became everyone’s favorite scene stealer on The Good Wife -- ever again. But The Good Fight spinoff changed all that.

“I always loved playing her when I was on The Good Wife, and I had already said goodbye to her and mourned the loss of this great role I got to play,” Preston tells Et of her lovable, extremely astute alter ego, who returned in last Sunday’s episode. “I was obviously thrilled when [creators Robert and Michelle King] called me up and asked me if I could come and do an arc for them.”

Though it’s been over a year since Preston, 49, slipped into Elsbeth’s shoes, finding her unique ticks and endearingly erratic charm was a familiar process.

Hello, Again! The Good Fight's Carrie Preston on Reprising One of TV's Kookiest Characters (After Mourning Her Loss)

8 March 2017 11:36 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

She's back. The kookiest character on TV, Elsbeth Tascioni, is back in action on The Good Fight, The Good Wife's spinoff, and her return is as much a surprise as her final appearance was to Carrie Preston, the Emmy-winning actress behind the character. When Preston did her one-episode appearance in season seven of The Good Wife, she had no idea that would be it for her time on the show—and the show itself. "Yeah, I definitely did [mourn the character] because I wasn't sure if there was going to be a spinoff and if there was, there was no guarantee that I was going to be a part of it, although I prayed that I would be. I threw myself at the feet of any and all people who could've possibly made that »

Et Obsessions: ‘When We Rise,’ Richard Simmons Podcast, ‘Chicago Justice,’ and Wolverine’s Goodbye

27 February 2017 8:10 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Here at Et, we’re obsessed with a lot of things -- and for the week of Feb. 27 to March 5, this is what we’re most excited about:

Why We’re Obsessed With ‘Missing Richard Simmons

From filmmaker Dan Taberski comes a gripping new podcast that seeks to answer the question: Whatever happened to longtime fitness guru Richard Simmons? After disappearing from public life and seemingly ghosting all his close friends and supporters in 2014, Simmons mostly hasn’t been heard from since. Taberski, a fan and friend of Simmons, makes it his mission to find the answer to that question, while also uncovering what made Simmons the man he is today. The podcast, which is only two episodes in, blends the mystery of Serial with those E! True Hollywood Story specials that became popular in the late ’90s.

‘When We Rise’ Ep Dustin Lance Black: ‘This Is Going to Be More Timely Than I Thought’

24 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“From the beginning I said it should be ‘When We Rise,’ the we being the biggest part of it,” says writer/producer/director Dustin Lance Black, of naming the eight-hour, four-part miniseries that premieres on February 27 on ABC.

A few feet away, director Dee Rees (“Bessie”) sets up a scene outside the storefront that once housed activist Harvey Milk’s campaign office for City Supervisor (it’s now fittingly a space occupied by the Human Rights Campaign). In the scene, a young Cleve Jones (Austin P. McKenzie) runs out to Castro Street to talk with soon-to-be disco star Sylvester (Justin Sams), who he has become friends with. The real Cleve Jones, an activist still living in San Francisco and consultant on the project, stands off to the side and watches the moment from his own life as its recreated for the cameras.

Sundance Review: ‘To the Bone’ Tells an Important Story Artificially

28 January 2017 7:58 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Written and directed by Marti Noxon, To the Bone is an occasionally harrowing drama geared towards the Ya crowd from a filmmaker that knows the terrain well, having written Fright Night and I Am Number Four, as well as TV shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Glee, and Angel. Exploring eating disorders, the film is fronted by a strong performance by Lilly Collins as Ellen, a 20-year old artist from an upper middle-class household living with this battle. While the script is occasionally quite frank and knows the territory it’s exploring well, it falls back on the same tropes you’d expect from a network TV series, creating artificial drama and an attempt at a loveably quirky character that derails the entire picture.

After yet another stint in an in-patient hospital, Ellen returns home to Los Angels, living with her step mom Susan (Carrie Preston) and half-sister Kelly (Laiana Liberto »

‘To the Bone’: How Marti Noxon Turned Her Anorexia Battles Into a $8 Million Netflix Buy — Sundance 2017

27 January 2017 12:07 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For her feature directorial debut, Marti Noxon goes deep. Her Sundance premiere “To the Bone” is based on her own experiences with eating disorders and recovery, framed around the darkly funny journey of a young anorexic named Ellen (Lily Collins) as she attempts a radical treatment that offers her what is likely her last chance at survival. (No, really, it’s funny.)

Noxon is already a major name in the television space, best known for writing and producing series such as the beloved “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” (where she was mentored by Joss Whedon) and recent smash hit “UNreal.” She’s dabbled in film before, including penning scripts for Rick Rosenthal’s late-’90s romantic comedy “Just a Little Harmless Sex” and the 2011 remake of “Fright Night.” But she’s never done anything quite like “To the Bone.”

Sundance Film Review: ‘To the Bone’

22 January 2017 3:38 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Point a camera at someone in the far, far distance, but keep the focus trained on the foreground, and that person takes on an almost extra-terrestrial quality, like some sort of spun-sugar stick figure, or a walking skeleton. “To the Bone” opens with just such a shot: That reed-thin silhouette advancing toward us is Ellen (an alarmingly frail Lily Collins), an anorexic young woman who’s been through four different treatment centers for her eating disorder. The film tells the story of Ellen’s fifth and final in-patient experience — it’s not an easy sit, nor an terribly entertaining one, but in the hands of writer-director Marti Noxon, it delivers painful insights in a relatively fresh way.

While not downright irreverent, this is the kind of anorexia movie where characters crack jokes about not wanting to visit the Holocaust Museum, lest they feel guilty for starving themselves. “To the Bone »
