The 34-year-old veteran of Mad Men and Community, now positioned to break out in her Netflix vehicle Glow, radiates the steely poise and self-possessed charm of a career diplomat’s wife.

Han Solo Firing Proves Studios’ Franchises Don’t Want Directors To Be Storytellers

23 June 2017 11:39 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Oh, the irony: As TV creators seek inventive ways to adapt the visual language of cinema, Hollywood’s big-budget, big-screen movies are increasingly becoming more like television.

With serialized TV shows, control needs to be in the hands of writers and showrunners. That’s because the story is still unfolding and the production is built from episode to episode. The director can’t be the principal storyteller, which makes it challenging to put a premium on visual storytelling.

Those who run the Marvel Cinematic Universe might sympathize. When it launched in 2008, their choices of directors seemed like head scratchers for a big action film. In retrospect, they make perfect sense.

Get in the Ring: How 'Glow' Recreates the Golden Age of Lady-Wrestling TV

23 June 2017 9:07 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

No doubt about it: The 1980s was a strange time to channel surf. Those neon-tinted, big-haired, irony-free days have provided Internet curio-seekers with fodder for infinite terabytes of grainy, colorful ephemera. And one of the cornerstones of weird Eighties television was "Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling" (G.L.O.W. for short), an all-female pro-wrestling league whose exploits were filmed in Las Vegas and syndicated nationwide.

It's the type of retro-kitsch from the Reagan era could have vanished down the YouTube black hole – until Netflix resurrected it, sort of. The cult »

Glow's Betty Gilpin Needs Answers About...Sesame Street?!

23 June 2017 8:26 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Glow, Netflix's new comedy starring Alison Brie, Marc Maron and Betty Gilpin, is scripted, but takes viewers behind the scenes of a real show, Glow (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) that started in 1986. Based on a real show, but with fictional people. Get it? Maron plays Sam Sylvia, the man tasked with getting the professional wrestling series off the ground. Brie, of Community fame, plays Ruth Wilder, a struggling actress hoping Glow will be her big break and Gilpin, who starred on Nurse Jackie and recurred on American Gods, plays Debbie Eagan, a former soap star who is using Glow as her comeback. Since Glow is giving a behind-the-scenes look at a real show, we had to ask the cast which gem they'd like to get the scoop »

Glow Premiere Recap: Will You Get in the Ring With the Wrestling Comedy?

23 June 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Nothing about Glow, Netflix’s fictional comedy about the real Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, should work. A group of women, most of whom who have never wrestled or acted before, team up with a sketchy director to create a ladies’ wrestling TV show that’s remembered as ’80s kitsch at best? On paper, it seems like the series equivalent of slap bracelets or Garbage Pail Kids: silly fun that’s easily forgotten.

22 June 2017 11:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With less than two weeks to go until the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming, a new clip has arrived online for Marvel and Sony’s upcoming reboot which sees Peter (Tom Holland) and Ned (Jacob Batalon) run into Michelle (Zendaya) at a party; check it out here…

Update: And here’s a couple of new spots…

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Spider-Man: Homecoming sees Tom Holland and Marisa Tomei reprising their roles from Captain America: Civil War as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Aunt May, alongside Marvel veterans Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark and Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan.

Glow: 6 Things to Know About Netflix's Lady-Wrestling Comedy

22 June 2017 2:14 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Yes, Netflix’s Glow provides a funny, albeit fictional, behind-the-scenes look into the rise of the 1980s phenomenon known as Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. Yes, it features comedic heavy hitters like Alison Brie (Community) and Marc Maron (Maron) sporting some truly fantastic period costumes. And yes, the show’s pedigreed production team includes Orange Is the New Black‘s Carly Mensch and Nurse Jackie‘s Liz Flahive, as well as Oitnb‘s Jenji Kohan.

But Glow also provided a vital lesson to its cast, courtesy of the hands-on training the actors underwent prior to the shoot.

Why ‘Glow’ Creators Made Women’s Wrestling Series

22 June 2017 12:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Women’s wrestling might not seem like the most natural of subjects for producers Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch to (pardon the expression) tackle. The two writers, who’ve been friends for years dating back to their time on “Nurse Jackie,” were looking for another project to team up on. “We knew we wanted it to be female-focused, we wanted it to be a comedy, but we had no other insight beyond that,” says Flahive.

And then they came across a documentary about the women of “G.L.O.W.” (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling), talking about their time making the »

Zendaya wasn’t aware she was auditioning for Spider-Man: Homecoming

22 June 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Actress Zendaya apparently wasn’t aware at the time that she was auditioning for a role in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Movie gigs don’t come much bigger than superhero films these days, and superheroes don’t come much bigger than Spider-Man, especially now that the character is being incorporated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with this latest reboot of the tale.

So a young actress would probably be pretty excited about getting the opportunity to land one of the film’s key roles. Unfortunately for Zendaya, she wasn’t aware what her audition was actually for.

Zendaya told the story to Jimmy Fallon in a recent interview (via comicbook.com), describing her surprise.

“I knew I was auditioning for ‘Girl In Movie’, it was great getting into character [laughs],” Zendaya said. “In fact, I didn’t actually even know what kind of character [it was], because my character is very interesting. She is kind of a loner; she is super-intellectual, very dug-dry humor with one-liners, pops in and pops out. I didn’t even know what character I was going to play until I got there and sign the Non-Disclosure and then read the script.”

The actress, who will be playing a character named Michelle in the movie, also talked about how the production for Homecoming didn’t feel like a superhero film to her.

“So everything that I shot, when we were shooting just felt like I was shooting this awkward teen coming-of-age comedy kind of thing and then you realize, when the trailers were starting to come out, that ‘Wow, this is a Spider-Man movie! This is action, it’s going down!’” Zendaya said.

Fans will be able to see Zendaya in Spiderman: Homecoming, apparently not involved in the film’s action, early next month.

Gillian Jacobs in “Love”: Suzanne Hanover/Netflix

Gillian Jacobs is going to Spain with “SNL” alumna Vanessa Bayer and “2 Dope Queens” podcast co-host Phoebe Robinson. The three will star in the Netflix comedy film “Ibiza,” per The Hollywood Reporter. Jacobs stars as woman who travels to Spain on business and “finds herself on a wild ride of partying and clubbing, where she falls in love with a world famous DJ and realizes there is more to life than showing up to a job she hates.”

No word on Bayer or Robinson’s roles yet.

“Ibiza” is written by Lauren Kahn and will be directed by her frequent “Funny or Die” collaborator Alex Richanbach. Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, and Kevin J. Messick are producing alongside Good Universe. Production will begin in Europe in July.

The comedy was originally developed for Sony before being sent to Netflix.

Jacobs stars as recovering addict Mickey on the Netflix series “Love.” She recently wrapped “Life of the Party,” a college-set comedy starring and co-written by Melissa McCarthy. The film hits theaters May 11, 2018. Jacobs also appears in “Magic Camp,” a fantasy comedy from Disney that opens April 6, 2018. “Don’t Think Twice,” “Girls,” and “Community” are among Jacobs’ other credits.

Bayer recently left “Saturday Night Live” after seven seasons. Her screen credits include “Trainwreck,” “Portlandia,” and Susan Johnson’s “Carrie Pilby.”

Robinson worked as a staff writer on “Girl Code.” The comedian and actress’ screen roles include “Broad City” and “I Love Dick.” You can catch her next in Stefanie Sparks’ comedy “In Case of Emergency,” currently in post-production. Robinson’s book, “You Can’t Touch My Hair,” was published last fall.

Alison Brie on the ‘Glow’ Audition Joke That Helped Her Land the Role

22 June 2017 11:54 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Alison Brie has already won high praise for her performance on Netflix’s latest dramedy “Glow,” but the role wasn’t handed to her on a plate. At the show’s premiere at the Arclight Dome in Hollywood Wednesday night, star Brie told TheWrap how an improvised line during her second audition helped her land the part of Ruth, a struggling actress who gets cast as a female wrestler. The joke involved rhyming a certain part of the female anatomy with “Natasha and Boris” — the Russian villains from classic cartoon “The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show.” The “Community” and “Mad Men” alum said that. »

‘Glow’ Producers Didn’t Want to Cast Alison Brie — Here’s How She Fought to Change Their Minds

22 June 2017 9:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Life often imitates art, but Alison Brie’s “Glow” story is kind of amazing.

Brie’s character on the new Netflix original series — from creator Liz Flahive (“Nurse Jackie”) and executive producer Jenji Kohan (“Orange is the New Black”) — is an actress whose resiliency is rewarded with the role she needs. But the connection between artist and art is a touch more specific than that.

Ruth spends the first scene of “Glow,” and much of the first episode, auditioning. The first scene is an audition, and she’s quickly rejected. Another audition, another rejection. It’s a pattern in the pilot, and it was a pattern for Brie when she was trying to be a part of it.

‘Glow’ Producers Didn’t Want to Cast Alison Brie — Here’s How She Fought to Change Their Minds

Brie’s character on the new Netflix original series — from creator Liz Flahive (“Nurse Jackie”) and executive producer Jenji Kohan (“Orange is the New Black”) — is an actress whose resiliency is rewarded with the role she needs.

“They did not want me to have this part,” Brie said, remembering the long, challenging audition process while sitting next to Flahive and co-star Betty Gilpin (“American Gods”). “I’ve never felt more like Ruth than when I was auditioning for this show.”

Read More: ‘Gypsy’ Review: Naomi Watts’ Netflix Series is Impossibly Dull Given Who’s Involved

The first hurdle: Flahive and casting director Jen Euston were looking for an unknown to play Ruth, the lead in the series, and that meant the former star of “Community” and “Mad Men” wasn’t an option.

“I think we had an idea in our head that [Ruth] was somebody who hadn’t been cast; who you hadn’t seen,” Flahive said, noting they got past it by watching Brie’s auditions. “[Casting] was a combination of seeing people again and again and again, and the other roles where it was just, ‘There’s only one person. This is the person.'”

Brie and Gilpin fell into the former group, as the duo had to come in repeatedly to try out for their parts.

“It felt like a series of tests,” Brie said. “‘But will she come in and do a pre-read for casting?’ And I was like, ‘Absolutely, I’ll wear no makeup.’ ‘Will you fly to Toronto and read with Betty in front of no one?’ ‘Yes, absolutely, whatever you want me to do.'”

In total, Brie and Gilpin went on four auditions — two individually and then two together to test their chemistry. The first step was reading for Euston, and the second was in a “very cold, weird, silent room” with producers. Even when they got the call to come in together, they were filmed “alone in a room with like two casting assistants who were not working on this project,” Brie said.

“[It was] like a stoned 16-year-old who they found on the street to press record,” Flahive said, laughing.

Read More: ‘Kingdom’ and ‘American Gods’ Star Jonathan Tucker Bled for His Art, and That’s Just the Beginning

Because of these oddities, each actress developed individual rituals to keep their expectations in check.

“Every audition for Debbie, I thought of it as the last time,” Gilpin said. “I would say goodbye to her every time because I was like, ‘You cannot take this dream all the way in.'”

“I cried in my car after every audition,” Brie said. “I would sit in my car like Ruth and sob. And we were both listening to the same Ultimate ’80s mix while auditioning, so “Flock of Seagulls” was playing [while we were sobbing].”

Their final audition was in Los Angeles “five days before my wedding,” Gilpin said. Flahive said they needed to see the two of them together again because “[Ruth and Debbie] is the relationship of the series,” but it was all more than worth it to the actors because of the script’s unique opportunities.

“I’ve been in this strange sweet spot of making my living as an actor but not doing crazy big shows like this,” Gilpin said. “I’ve auditioned for a lot of what’s out there, which is like squinty cop in tight outfits who aren’t taking any shit in the first scene and in the second scene they’re naked and blowing the captain of the police force. And I tried really hard to get those parts because I want my future children to go to school and have appetizers at dinners.”

“So when this came along I was just shaking reading it because I hadn’t really allowed myself to dream of a part like this,” she said.

Brie agreed, taking it one step further. “It was amazing to get the opportunity to prove myself the way that Ruth also does,” she said of the audition process. “But I also had this dream criteria in my head where I was ready to sign off on certain shows that checked like two of the six boxes, and I was like ‘Two whole boxes!’ And then ‘Glow’ came in, and it really did check every box.”

“It was indescribable when I first read it, in the same way that Betty described: the fear and excitement at reading it and being like, ‘Oh my God. This is the thing!'”

But even now, with the season wrapped and rolling out on Netflix and plenty of prestige TV in their past, these actors are still nervous for the next audition.

Do you feel like there’s been a tipping point? Was there a moment where you thought, “Ok, I’ve got this. I feel like I’ve broken through?”

Gilpin: Absolutely not, no.

I hope you feel that way now.

Gilpin: I don’t!

Soon, though, maybe?

Brie: We never do.

Gilpin: But there is a feeling on set, in every department on “Glow” that everyone has sort of paid their dues and gritted their teeth through certain jobs to get to this one.

Brie: To be rewarded with this.

Gilpin: That this is the passion project.

If art does imitate life, may this piece last as long as Brie, Gilpin, and Flahive care to live in it.

Glow review – a riotous portrayal of the piledriving world of women’s wrestling

Community’s Alison Brie stars in this smart, grimy, ludicrous dramedy set against the weird, Spandex-heavy backdrop of 80s grappling

What is it? A riot of hairspray, Spandex, butt-kick females and pure joy.

Why you’ll love it: When has TV ever depicted women of every shape and hue throwing off all vanity and slamming each other into the floor with abandon? Never. Or, at least, rarely. Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch’s brilliant new show about a bunch of misfit women in 1985 Los Angeles joining forces (and I mean forces) to make a pilot for a TV show, The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (or Glow), is a fictionalised account of the true story behind an 80s wrestling franchise.
