Gillian Anderson Ruled ‘American Gods’: How the Many Faces of Media Were Chosen

26 June 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The first season of “American Gods” featured many highlights, including the captivating work of Ian McShane, some groundbreaking nudity and sexual content, and a fascinating breakout episode that brought unexpected depth to one of the show’s most complicated characters. But Gillian Anderson, with maybe 30 minutes of screen time total, may be the ultimate highlight.

Playing the “new god” Media, Anderson appears in several forms over the course of the season, all extremely recognizable to fans of pop culture. In depicting Lucy Ricardo, David BowieMarilyn Monroe and Judy Garland, the veteran TV star demonstrated a spectrum of ability which people only familiar with her more serious drama work might not have anticipated.

Performer of the Week: Gillian Anderson

24 June 2017 7:33 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Performer | Gillian Anderson

The Show | American Gods

The Episode | “Come to Jesus“ (June 18)

The Performance | Is there anything that livens up an American Gods scene more than the captivating, off-kilter addition of Gillian Anderson’s Media? We think not, especially given the X-Files alum’s highly entertaining performance in Sunday’s Season 1 finale.

When Media showed up as Judy Garland in her Easter Parade attire, all doe-eyed and delicate, Anderson was the picture of turn-of-the-century femininity. And we marveled, in part because she so thoroughly wrapped the New God in this old-school persona and in part because Anderson-as-Media-as-Garland »

Does Hollywood Hate the Easter Bunny?

15 April 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Ask anyone to name his favorite Easter movie, and chances are you'll get a blank stare. A few people might say Here Comes Peter Cottontail (which was actually a 1971 stop motion animated TV special) or its 2005 animated sequel of the same name (a direct-to-video release that made its television debut on Cartoon Network the following year). Then of course, there's Hop, the 2011 live-action/animated movie that holds the honor of being the only Easter-themed feature film since the Judy Garland-Fred Astaire musical Easter Parade in 1948 (which didn't really involve the bunny). There's been a Disney Channel Original Movie about practically every fantastical creature—leprechauns, mermaids, »

‘Peter Gunn’ Star Lola Albright Dies at 92

24 March 2017 2:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lola Albright, the glamorous blonde actress best known for starring on the television series “Peter Gunn,” died Thursday at her home in Los Angeles. She was 92.

A native of Akron, Ohio, news of her death was first reported by the Akron Beacon-Journal. “She went very peacefully,” her friend Eric Anderson told the newspaper. “She died at 7:20 a.m. of natural causes. We loved her so much.”

Albright was a receptionist at Wakr radio in Akron, then left to go to Cleveland’s Wtam, where she wed announcer Warren Dean — the first of three marriages.

Her first film appearance came in 1947 in “The Unfinished Dance,” starring Margaret O’Brien. She then starred with Judy Garland in “Easter Parade” in 1948. The next year she appeared opposite Kirk Douglas in 1949’s “Champion,” portraying a spurned lover. Douglas received an Oscar nomination for his work.
