‘Young Sheldon’ star Zoe Perry on playing same character as her mom Laurie Metcalf does on ‘The Big Bang Theory’

‘Young Sheldon’ star Zoe Perry on playing same character as her mom Laurie Metcalf does on ‘The Big Bang Theory’
Zoe Perry has had a lifetime to prepare for her role as the tart-tongued Texan Mary Cooper on “Young Sheldon.” Her mother, Emmy and Tony winner Laurie Metcalf, plays the same part on the contemporary comedy “The Big Bang Theory,” which begat this prequel set in 1989. The family connection extends even further as Perry previously played her mother’s character in flashbacks on “Roseanne,” which was executive produced by Chuck Lorre, the creator of both these hit CBS shows.

Metcalf encouraged her to audition for “Young Sheldon” and she readily admits that she had an advantage, in that she knew her mother’s mannerisms and vocal patterns. After she was cast, Perry made a point of watching all the episodes in which her mother appeared. Her goal was “to carve out an original Mary but one that is grounded in what my mom did.” And she was pleased that the

Warner Bros. Town Hall: John Stankey Fields Bugs Bunny Question, Promises Better Cell Coverage

John Stankey, the man tasked with integrating WarnerMedia into the At&T family, tried to sell employees at the company’s film and television studio on the virtues of being part of a global telecommunications giant. He promised to enhance cellular service on Warner Bros.’s studio lot during an hour-long presentation to staffers on Wednesday, receiving sustained applause from a group of Valley-toilers who have long been frustrated by dropped calls and dodgy signals.

The meeting is one of a series of sit-downs that Stankey, the newly minted WarnerMedia CEO, is doing this week in the wake of At&T’s $85 billion purchase of Time Warner. The company has been rechristened WarnerMedia, but so far At&T has taken pains to stress that it wants its new employees to continue making movies, shows, and other entertainment products despite having new corporate parents.

High Anxiety: WarnerMedia Staff Braces for New Boss as At&T Takes Control

Employees at WarnerMedia, the newly re-christened entertainment enterprise formerly known as Time Warner, are eyeing their new corporate leaders with trepidation. They’re worried that At&T, the telecommunications giant that snapped up the company in a blockbuster $85 billion transaction, will do a lot more than simply rename its new bauble.

Having lived through one megamerger — Time Warner’s disastrous 2000 marriage with AOL — and seen other entertainment companies, such as NBCUniversal and Scripps, get taken over by sprawling corporate owners, they’re understandably fearful of a future that undoubtedly will include layoffs and cultural overhauls. And At&T is known for cutting costs.

John Stankey, the man tasked with bringing WarnerMedia’s various divisions under the At&T umbrella, knows that he’s got a sales pitch to make.

21 Forgettable '00s Sitcoms Only Superfans Remember

There is no more accessible form of entertainment than the sitcom. They’ve been a fixture of television sets since the inception of the medium, but they took off in the 1960s when TV sets were commonplace in households. Since then, sitcoms have come in all manner of forms, but for the most part they provide wholesome entertainment that’s fun for the whole family.

The 2000s won’t go down in history as the best era for sitcoms, but it did deliver some gems. Shows like Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, The Office, That ‘70s Show, Arrested Development, Scrubs, and How I Met Your Mother were at the forefront of TV comedy back then. While, shows like Friends, Everybody Loves Raymond, and King of Queens were still enjoying their initial runs. The decade gave us some of the best and most popular comedy in the

Beth Behrs Cast as Max Greenfield's Wife in CBS' The Neighborhood, Replacing Dreama Walker

CBS is making another major change to The Neighborhood, tapping 2 Broke Girls‘ Beth Behrs to replace Dreama Walker as the sitcom’s new female lead, TVLine has learned.

Zac Efron’s Ted Bundy film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile set to premiere on Sky

Hardly an indication of quality thus far, the cinema/Sky Premiere same day release format has resulted in fare such as Monster Family, The Hurricane Heist, and Anon. Hoping to buck that trend will be Zac Efron’s Ted Bundy biopic, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, which will now debut on satellite television on the same day it is unleashed in UK cinemas.

There are no details on the release date, but based on the talent involved, plus the intrigue of watching Efron play a serial killer who murdered over thirty people, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, should hopefully be worth welcoming into your homes sometime later this year.

Zac Efron is taking on the role of Bundy in the film, which will tell the story through the eyes of his girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer, played by Lily Collins (To the Bone). Also featuring in the cast are John Malkovich
