Dianne Wiest Boards Noah Baumbach’s ‘The Corrections’ for HBO; Chris Cooper in Talks

19 October 2011 10:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Last month, I got very excited about reports [2] that Noah Baumbach would be adapting The Corrections for HBO. The Squid and the Whale director struck me as a perfect pick to bring Jonathan Franzen's unhappy family tome to life. Today's news makes me even more certain that HBO will do right by Franzen. The project, which is being directed by Baumbach and penned by Baumbach and Franzen, has now moved into casting -- and the first two choices seem like truly fantastic ones. Dianne Wiest has signed on to play the part of put-upon wife Enid, while Chris Cooper has entered talks to play her husband Alfred, who suffers from Parkinson's disease. More details after the jump. Franzen's novel earned glowing reviews upon its 2001 release, picking up the National Book Award and earning a spot on Time's list of the top 100 English-language novels since 1923. The plot revolves around an »

Dianne Wiest Set, Chris Cooper In Talks To Star In Noah Baumbach/Scott Rudin’s HBO Pilot ‘The Corrections’

18 October 2011 3:12 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: HBO is going for some serious acting firepower on the Noah Baumbach/Scott Rudin drama The Corrections. The pay cable network has Oscar winner Chris Cooper in negotiations and two-time Oscar winner Dianne Wiest set for the two leads in the project based on Jonathan Franzen’s book, which is yet to be formally greenlighted to pilot. The award-wining 2001 novel revolves around the troubles of an elderly Midwestern couple, to be played by Cooper and Wiest, and their three adult children — roles that are now being cast — as they trace their lives from the mid-20th century to “one last Christmas” together near the turn of the millennium. Baumbach and Franzen co-wrote the adaptation, with Baumbach set to direct the pilot. Rudin, who had been developing the project for a decade, originally as a feature, is executive producing with Baumbach and Franzen. ICM-repped Wiest, whose previous HBO series role »

Emmy dead heat between Evan Rachel Wood and Maggie Smith

16 September 2011 2:22 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

It is youth vs. experience as Evan Rachel Wood ("Mildred Pierce") battles Dame Maggie Smith ("Downton Abbey") for the Emmy Award as Best TV Movie/Miniseries Supporting Actress. Our exclusive Gold Derby statistics show a virtual dead heat with Wood's 27/20 odds slightly ahead of the 8/5 odds for Smith. -Inserts:25- Wood is the only lady in this competition without a major award on her mantle. In the HBO miniseries, she played Veda Pierce, the outspoken and conniving daughter of Mildred (Kate Winslet). She is being predicted to win by four experts, six editors, and 28% of our users (157 votes). Smith is a two-time Oscar champ ("The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie," 1969; "California Suite," 1978) and Emmy winner ("My House in Umbria," 2003). For this British production which aired on PBS in America, she played Violet, the Dowager Countess of Grantham, and was always quick with a quip or putdown. She is the overwhe. »
