Pint-sized Tony/Emmy winner Kristin Chenoweth, who recently showcased her chipper and bubbly personality as ABC's red carpet host at the Oscars, dials it down a few notches to play a selfish and cold working mother in the dark comedy "Family Weekend" (in theaters this Friday). Although the actress is still best known for translating her sunny disposition to the stage as Glinda the Good Witch in the Broadway phenomenon "Wicked," Chenoweth has showcased a lot of rage (and venom) over the course of her last decade in the business by appearing in "Glee" as troubled man-eater, in "Pushing Daisies" as a lovesick waitress, and most memorably, in "Gcb" as one of the Good Christian Bitches of the title. Joined by her adorable pooch Maddie in her lap, Chenoweth sat down with Indiewire at New York's Crosby Street Hotel to discuss "Family Weekend," her recent Oscars' experience and "Gcb"'s all-too-short run on ABC. »
