Just when we thought FX's fifth season of 'Justified' had gotten underway with its full complement of guest stars, in comes one more for the penultimate season of Timothy Olyphant's gunslinger drama. Academy Award-winner (and 'Back to the Future Part III' vet) Mary Steenburgen has been added to 'Justified''s fifth season, but what surprising connection does she have with fan favorite Wynn Duffy?
At 60 years old, an age she freely admits, Mary Steenburgen has had an amazing career. She's an Oscar-winning actress, an award-winning song writer and has starred in so many projects that are a major part of pop culture from 'Elf' to 'Back to the Future III' to 'Step Brothers.' She continues to work and, maybe most impressively, isn't just playing the grandma in a movie. She's the romantic lead in a movie opening today, 'Last Vegas' with Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline.
We caught up with Steenburgen to talk about her impressive career, the 'Step Brothers' outtakes, a return to 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' and how nerds keep coming up to her wanting to talk about 'Back to the Future' 23 years later.
You can say one thing for sure about director Jon Turteltaub: the man sure knows how to build a cast. Just look at the list of names headlining the 'National Treasure' director's upcoming comedy 'Last Vegas': Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline. That's four Oscar winners. Actually, make it five: Mary Steenburgen has joined them.
