Since we first heard the awe-inspiring news that Marvel, ABC and Joss Whedon would develop a 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series set within Marvel's cinematic universe, we've been privy to a number of casting announcements that include Clark Gregg's resurrected Phil Coulson, Ming-Na, and several newcomers. What of frequent TV star Lizzy Caplan however, who starred in Marvel's 'Avengers' short 'Item 47?' The upcoming 'Masters of Sex' star gives new details inside!
We started paying attention to Lizzy Caplan when she played the rebellious and witty Janice Ian in 'Mean Girls' and the doomed Marlena in 'Cloverfield,' and she's been on our radar with her edgy roles ever since. In today's Way Back When, we take a look at some of her lesser-known performances.
Selling an independent festival darling to a large audience can be a tricky affair. You don't have a $100 million marketing budget, but what you do have is (hopefully) a great deal of critical praise. And that's where the new trailer for 'Save the Date' enters the picture. The trailer opens with critical praise and continues to layer it on thick throughout, replacing all dialogue and plot details with praise from various outlets. But is that going to convince anyone to go see it?
Right up until the show actually makes its debut on ABC, it seems we'll have to use the law of subtractions in figuring out the plot and characters of Marvel's 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series. We know for instance, that it won't feature a resurrected fan-favorite Agent Coulson, or incorporate its 'Avengers' counterparts in any consistent way, but what can we expect? Well, get ready to cross another name off the list as 'Item 47' star Lizzy Caplan won't be part of the proceedings either.
Word of mouth from Sundance for the new comedy 'Bachelorette' was overwhelmingly positive, and thanks to the first official trailer for the film, we can see why.
