Jack O’Connell, Anthony Mackie, Margaret Qualley and Colm Meaney are also starring. Benedict Andrews is directing from a script by Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse. The story centers on attempts by the FBI to discredit Seberg through its Cointelpro program in retaliation for her support of the Black Panther Party. Those efforts included creating a false story in 1970 that the child Seberg was carrying was not fathered by her husband, but by a member of the Black Panther Party.
Mackie will portray a civil rights activist and O’Connell has been cast as an FBI agent assigned to surveil the actress.
Seberg acted in dozens of films including “Saint Joan,” “Bonjour Tristesse,” “Breathless,” and “The Mouse That Roared.” She died in 1979 in France, with
“The perils for women in Hollywood are embedded, like land mines, from an actress’s debut to her swan song,” says film critic and historian Carrie Rickey, “where moguls like Harry Cohn reputedly wouldn’t cast starlets like Marilyn Monroe and Kim Novak unless they auditioned in bed.”
Long before Weinstein there was Louis B. Mayer, who co-founded Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studios in 1924. Mayer, the ground zero of this kind of abuse, had means, motive, opportunity

“The Walking Dead” gang finally made it inside the Alexandria Safe-Zone this week, and what they found was downright shocking. Behind the gates was an utterly peaceful community overseen by Deanna Monroe, played by four-time Tony nominated Broadway veteran Tovah Feldshuh.
Feldshuh, whose extensive resume also boasts an Emmy nominated recurring role on “Law & Order” and films including “Kissing Jessica Stein” and “A Walk on the Moon,” isn’t exactly someone you’d expect to see on AMC’s gory hit. Which is probably why she’s such a perfect fit for a character whose level-headed leadership style couldn’t be more different than Woodbury’s morally bankrupt Governor.
Joining “The Walking Dead” isn’t even the biggest adventure in Feldshuh’s life right now. Variety spoke with the actress about her role
Rainer won her twin best actress Oscars for 1936 biopic “The Great Ziegfeld,” drawing the nod despite a fairly small role as impresario Florenz Ziegfeld’s first wife, and 1937’s “The Good Earth,” an adaptation of the novel by Pearl S. Buck in which the heavily, if charmingly, accented Austrian-German actress played a humble Chinese peasant.
The high expectations generated by her Oscar achievements did not, however lead to much further success in Hollywood. Some say the death of her producer at MGM, Irving Thalberg, as well as bad advice from her husband, the playwright Clifford Odets, contributed to the precipitous decline in her career.
Her first movie was “Escapade,” with William Powell.
"Dumb and Dumber To is about a deep, abiding friendship that can survive any indignities. After Harry and Lloyd’s journey is over, they’ve tossed away fortunes and frittered away kidneys, but they need each other to survive. As each momentary acquaintance slinks, or runs, away, it’s up to Harry and Lloyd to forget and move on. Or as is the case for Lloyd, to think about ninjas and wake up licking the grill of a big rig. Either way they can’t live without each other. And though they could never admit it, or even form the words in their desiccated cortexes, what they have is something like love.
