“That Girl” Actress of the Day: Beth Grant

23 March 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

So far we’ve only focused on male actors when it comes to people you always recognize on film or TV but have trouble remembering their names.  Today’s character actor who’s been around for what seems like forever is Beth Grant.   Grant goes all the way back to 1988’s Rain Man when she appeared as the housewife in that farmhouse when Charlie knocks on her front door to watch Judge Wopner in order to prevent Ray from having a freak out session.   She also played the obsessed teacher in Donnie Darko.  She also played Dennis Quaid’s mom in The Rookie.

Composers Take Cues From Characters in ‘Fences,’ ‘Patriots Day,’ ‘Gold’

From “Fences” to “The Founder,” “Gold” to “Miss Sloane,” and “Live by Night to “Patriots Day,” many of this year’s scores took their cue from the strong characters that were central to each story.

For “Fences,” says composer Marcelo Zarvos, the starting point was August Wilson’s play, “this almost sacred material.” Director Denzel Washington even told him that Wilson’s words were the score, and that “we are employing every available technique, notably the music, to enhance those words and enrich them when needed.”
