Rating: PG-13 Stars: Naomi Watts, Jaeden Lieberher, Jacob Tremblay, Sarah Silverman, Dean Norris, Maddie Ziegler, Lee Pace Writer: Gregg Hurwitz Director: Colin Trevorrow Distributor: Focus Features Release Date: June 16, 2017 THE BOOK OF HENRY is something of a return to roots for director Colin Trevorrow. Before helming JURASSIC WORLD (and yes, he’s also scheduled to direct STAR WARS: EPISODE IX), Trevorrow made his feature directing debut with the wonderful, unpredictable 2012 indie SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED. THE BOOK OF HENRY has what looks like a slightly bigger budget than SAFETY, but it too zigs into some unexpected places. THE BOOK […]Read On »

It just wouldn’t be 24 without Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer. For a lot of people, it also wouldn’t be 24 without Mary Lynn Rajskub’s Chloe O’Brian. Brought on in 24’s third season in 2003 as a grumpy, antisocial computer whiz, Chloe evolved into Jack’s most loyal and trusted colleague. It’s not really a surprise, then, that Chloe and Rajskub are back for 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY, Mondays at 9 PM on Fox. Although Jack and Chloe begin the twelve-episode season as adversaries, odds are good that they’ll reach détente before long. Rajskub, a Michigan native who does standup comedy and […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Mary Lynn Rajskub on the end of 24 and HOW TO BE A GENTLEMAN

HOW TO BE A GENTLEMAN has not been one of CBS’ sitcom success stories. The half-hour comedy, starring David Hornsby as ultra-polite Andrew and Kevin Dillon as Andrew’s former high school tormentor-turned quasi-life coach, ends its nine-episode run this Saturday night. However, Mary Lynn Rajskub, who plays Andrew’s ultra-assertive sister Janet, is unlikely to be slowed down by GENTLEMAN’s gentle exit. The actress can currently be seen on the big screen as an acerbic newspaper editor in SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED and stars in two Web series. One is DIRTY WORK, about a crime scene cleanup crew; the other is DICKI, […]Read On »
