JA News Thread!

[img]smilies/star.gif[/img] [img]smilies/star.gif[/img] Welcome to the JA News Thread! [img]smilies/star.gif[/img] [img]smilies/star.gif[/img]

Everybody else is having this... so let's try and share news and information about the show and it's actors/actresses. Articles, pictures, recent appearances of the cast - everything goes. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]


i'll start with an interesting bit i found on the web.


Quote:
Acting counsel
Cast members discuss what makes their characters tick


Amy Brenneman Judge Amy Gray
The mother-daughter dynamic and chemistry, Brenneman says, is critical to "Judging Amy." Judge Amy "is younger but has more stature professionally" than Maxine, her social worker mother. Maxine, however, "has more street smarts," says Brenneman, whose real-life mother, the inspiration (and adviser) for the show, is a Connecticut superior court judge who was one of the first women to graduate from Harvard. Brenneman also is a Harvard grad and has had an opportunity to work with her husband, Brad Silberling, who directed the show's pilot (she calls it "an amazing experience") -- an improvement on their collaboration on the 1995 feature "Casper" ("We got bitchy with each other," she recalls). Brenneman wanted to be sure that "Amy" wasn't like any other show she'd seen on television. She felt it was important to depict judges in a more realistic way, a way she had never seen on television. Notes Brenneman, "I've never seen a real judge use a gavel; that's theatrical."

Tyne Daly Maxine Gray
You bring yourself to a role. Your own experience operates in your performance," six-time Emmy winner Daly says of her role as Amy Gray's mother. When the actress was in an automobile accident that wasn't revealed to the media, Daly was able to incorporate her experiences, including the loss of vocabulary and memory capacities, into that of her character (when Maxine had her onscreen car collision). When Richard Crenna, who played Maxine's love interest, passed away in January, it was "as sudden and surprising" to the actress as to her character. On "Amy," "you expect to tell stories that affect people," she says, and current events and the actors' lives affect those tales. Daly often hears from fans about how they appreciate the mature romance between Crenna's character and hers, or how they have had similar experiences with adoption, foster care and other issues to those Maxine encounters. Says Daly, "There are still plenty of stories to tell."

Kevin Rahm Kyle McCarty
"People are telling me they're upset Kyle started drinking again," says Rahm of his troubled doctor character, Amy's cousin, who appeared on the Grays' doorstep just as Amy's brother Vincent (Dan Futterman) moved out. Kyle, battling his own demons while trying to do the right thing in the hospital emergency room, was appealing "because he was so complex," Rahm says. Despite an adjustment period, he now "feels connected" to his character, who "shows up out of nowhere and was essentially a replacement for a favorite character." But Kyle is so "interesting," and so reliant on Daly's Maxine "as a figure of strength and support." It has taken audiences about a year to get to know Kyle. Now, Rahm says, "people don't tell me they hate me quite so much!"

Richard T. Jones Bruce Van Exel
Jones says the cast has "great chemistry, and we all get along really well." His character, court services officer Bruce, "tries very hard to live up to certain standards he's set up for himself. He's grown to accept and embrace his imperfections and has become more confident because of it." Jones' personal growth has been an inspiration for his character. "Today, the writers make him more well-rounded. As I mature, this character matures along with me," Jones says. Bruce has shared romantic tension with Amy, pursued a relationship with another woman and stayed behind in juvenile court when Amy was suddenly transferred to criminal court. Jones says co-star Daly has "been a great motivator" on a show that "demonstrates modern-day family values that everyone can relate to."

Marcus Giamatti Peter Gray
Giamatti loves working with "such talented actors, great writers and an awesome crew," he says, adding that it is "always such a challenge to play someone who would react so differently than myself to ordinary and extraordinary circumstances." His character, Amy's brother -- who recently experienced single parenthood while his wife was in a coma -- is "someone who doesn't wear a lot of his emotions on his sleeve, though he feels a great deal. He has a tendency to internalize things, yet he has a lot of heart and a love of simple things." The versatility of balancing comic and dramatic elements makes playing Peter "fascinating," Giamatti says.

Jessica Tuck Gillian Gray
Tuck says that Amy's sister-in-law Gillian, who during this season's opener emerged from a coma, "started out pretty uptight and buttoned-up and a little bit one-dimensional, but over the past five years, she's loosened up quite a bit, and she isn't as predictable." Still, Gillian is "a bit of a control freak," Tuck admits. For her part, the actress asserts that she is "much looser and a bit of a prankster. I grew up with five brothers; that says it all." Gillian has been through the wringer: She has "struggled with infertility and adoption, and then, finally, she succeeded in getting pregnant" -- the latter "completely coincidentally" with Tuck's real-life pregnancy.

Karle Warren Lauren Cassidy
Brenneman wasn't a mother when "Amy" debuted, but she played a confident one onscreen -- and when the actress delivered daughter Charlotte on March 20, 2001, the relationship between Judge Amy and talkative Lauren warmed further. Warren, who turned 11 this year, proverbially has grown up in front of the TV audience: She began this season with an older boyfriend. When her character first moved with her mother, away from Manhattan and her father and to her grandmother and uncle in Connecticut, "Lauren was angry at everyone, angry at change -- just mad," Warren says. "She's happier and independent now but doesn't always do the right thing; she cares too much what her friends think."

Jillian Armenante Donna Kozlowski-Pant
"It feels wonderful being on a show that puts good things out into the world," says Armenante, who loves the "really fun cast and crew." Her character, who just graduated from law school and has been hired by Amy in criminal court, has a "sense of loyalty and right and is constantly striving to better herself and help others. She's such an idealist," Armenante says. Donna has "become more confident and knowledgeable about the law." Armenante cites Season 2's "Waterworld," when her character gives birth, as a favorite episode. "Everyone knows what it feels like to try to do good in a world where good is seldom rewarded," she says of "Amy."

i thought that was really interesting - i always like it when actors give their thoughts on the character they play - especially if they did this for such a long time.

and yet another article. sorry for double posting, but i figured this was far too long to have place in the opening post.

"Judging Amy" 100th episode!
CBS' courtroom drama has reached its 100th episode by keeping things lively and unpredictable.


Judge Amy Gray and her family are seated around the dining room table, ready to partake of a pre-wedding dinner. If ever there were a "Kodak moment," this is it. The mother of Amy's fiance soon will offer an embarrassing toast, but for now, it is a picture that could have warmed the heart of Norman Rockwell.

If the scene on Stage 17 at 20th Century Fox Studios in Century City looked festive that late-September day, well, it should have: It was to become part of the 100th episode (set to air Tuesday) of the CBS hit "Judging Amy," a series that continues to surprise and delight a legion of fans and bring smiles to the faces of executives at the eye network and 20th Century Fox Television, its production company.

Some series spend a season or longer building an audience, but not "Amy." From the premiere episode that aired Sept. 19, 1999, the show has been a hit among viewers -- and CBS Entertainment president Nancy Tellem believes that it has been critical to her network's reversal of fortune.

"In its first season, it was the top-rated new drama, even outpacing (NBC's) 'The West Wing,'" she says. "It's been a consistently great performer for us; even last season, 'Judging Amy' won its time period in viewers, households and women."

"Amy" has more than held its own against competition in the 10 p.m. Tuesday slot. This season, that competition includes NBC's formidable "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."

Oddly, "Amy" -- a last-minute addition to pilot plans for CBS' 1999-2000 season -- almost didn't get made. Several years had passed since Amy Brenneman left the cast of ABC's "NYPD Blue"; during that span, she had appeared in films and in a TV pilot, "ATF," that failed to make the cut. Brenneman had decided that, were she to take part in another series, she would become involved not only as an actress but also as part of the creative team.

Her mother, Judge Frederica Brenneman, thought television was ripe for a series about the juvenile court system, perhaps along the lines of "L&O." CBS was interested in working with Amy Brenneman -- who had an acting and producing deal at Fox -- but after six months, a pair of writers had yet to come up with a concept that satisfied her vision.

"I chose the wrong writers," Brenneman admits. "My worst fear, because I had never done anything like this, was that I would be locked into doing something that wasn't good. The first script was terrible; the second script came in, and there was minimal improvement."

Barbara Hall, meanwhile, had an overall development deal at Fox and was awaiting word on a pilot she had written. Instead, she received a call from a Fox executive asking if Hall would consider taking a writing pass at Brenneman's project.

"What about my pilot?" Hall remembers asking. "'Oh, we're not doing that,' they said. Then I thought, 'OK, they're not doing my pilot, (but) I've always loved Amy as an actress, and I'd like to do something with her.' They told me a little about the concept, (and) I had five minutes to think about it. I said, 'OK.'"

At that point, though, Brenneman had little hope for the project. With less than a week remaining on her Fox deal, sitcoms were beginning to look good. Figuring there was little to lose, Brenneman and producing partner Connie Tavel agreed to meet with Hall.

"What could happen in five days?" Brenneman recalls thinking. "(Hall) seemed like a nice lady, but never in my wildest dreams did I think anything would ever come of it."

Hall was inclined to agree: No one turns out a great script in five days. Still, it was important to demonstrate team-player spirit.

Then, something amazing happened.

"I just got the show," Hall says. "That doesn't happen often -- or, for me, ever at all. I can't remember ever having gotten a show like this. I've got my own ideas, obviously, but I don't always get what other people are trying to do. But I heard Amy talk about it for 10 minutes, and I went, 'Oh yeah.' I got the show."

Brenneman almost couldn't believe Hall's script: It captured the characters as well as the humor and humanity of a newly divorced mother who trades a law career in New York for a position as a juvenile court judge in Hartford, Conn. There, she moves into the home of her widowed mother, Maxine (played by Emmy-winning actress Tyne Daly).

During the development phase, CBS senior vp drama development Nina Tassler envisioned "Amy" helping the network build on its strong female viewer base, as well as bringing in male viewers.

"It spoke to themes and issues that women could relate to and respond to, (such as) a woman's relationship with her mother, the relationship of a mother with her daughter and three generations of women," Tassler says. "With the legal franchise, you were able to juxtapose very compelling judicial and legal cases against the family drama."

Although the series was not intended to depict the life of Frederica Brenneman, there are bits and pieces reflected in some of "Amy's" early cases and in the relationship between Amy and Maxine. "I ripped off (my mom's mannerisms) early on," Brenneman says.

Tassler could tell from its presentation reel -- a full pilot was never made -- that "Amy" would be a strong show.

"You were able to see the relationships, you were able to see the concept, and you were able to envision where the series was going to go," she says.

If "Amy" borrowed slightly from Brenneman's mother, then in most other ways it was a TV original.

"It was a very strange hybrid show," executive producer Joseph Stern says. "It had the combination of a kind-of franchise, which was juvenile court -- which is not edgy or sexy -- and home life. What nobody knew, and what makes this show unique -- I actually think it's one of the most original shows in history -- is the tone: It's the juxtaposition of farce and drama, to oversimplify."

Stern, who had partnered with Hall on several unsuccessful pilots a few years earlier, renewed his partnership for "Amy" at the request of CBS chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves. Hall would supervise the writing, and Stern would oversee everything else, including casting and editing.

Unlike most producers, Stern not only boasts a long resume in television but also is an expert in theater, having produced more than 50 plays. He sees elements of musical comedy and Preston Sturges comedies in "Amy."

"It has a very idiosyncratic quality to it -- very verbal -- and it's laced with wit," Stern says. "And it has a very literate wit, which might be redundant: You can go from one scene to the next scene, from farce to high drama, and that underbelly of reality goes through it so that it doesn't appear to be contrived or shticky. That's unique to this show; the range of this show is like no other show that I can ever remember."

Emmy voters have nominated Brenneman for lead drama actress and Daly for supporting drama actress -- Daly won her category in September -- but "Amy" has not yet been nominated for outstanding drama series.

"You tell me one show that you can think of where the two leads are nominated, and the show wasn't," Stern says. "And you don't get two leads nominated unless the writing is good -- it just doesn't happen."

Ironically, Daly had misgivings about submitting the episode that won her this year's Emmy. It was the installment immediately following the unexpected death of Richard Crenna (who played Jared, the man Maxine Gray secretly had planned to wed). Daly had suffered real-life shock and pain with the loss of Crenna, and she did not want to appear to be taking advantage of events following his death.

The decision to submit the episode ultimately belonged to "Amy's" producers. In retrospect, Daly sees the installment as one in which the writers, the network and everyone else associated with the show honors Crenna.

"I've come around a little bit," she says. "But it was not a happy time."

Another transition has taken place this year within the "Amy" family: Hall has a new CBS series ("Joan of Arcadia") to run, so she has passed the writing torch to her sister, Karen Hall, and Alex Taub. Karen Hall, a consulting producer for the past three seasons, and Taub, who joined the show about a year earlier than that, have become executive producers for the 2003-04 season.

The continuity has allayed fears that otherwise might have come with a transition among writers, 20th Century Fox Television president Gary Newman says.

"I think it's important for shows to evolve and grow, (and to foster) that, you bring in fresh voices and get fresh points of view," he says. "What's great is to have some continuity so shows are shifting direction in small degrees, as opposed to wholesale shifts. Of course, having Amy as an executive producer also helps with the continuity of the series because, clearly, Amy knows these characters intimately."

Developments during the fifth season of "Amy" have been planned meticulously, and producers naturally are unwilling to reveal much lest the stories lose their impact. But Taub and Karen Hall disclose that Judge Gray will return to juvenile court in Episode 101, giving Amy more discretion in her rulings and in the manner in which she oversees court proceedings. But the show's elegant criminal court set will be stored and might be used again.

"One of the things that always fascinated me about the show is that Amy is a woman who is pretty together in her professional life and a mess in her personal life, and I know so many women who are actually like that," Karen Hall says. "Men (are) too, but I think they hide it better. This year, I think it's starting to cross over some: By the time Amy gets out of criminal court, she'll be a little flummoxed about her career in general."

Or, as Brenneman puts it: "A lot of what will happen is what Joe Stern says: 'You can't act an idea.' (But) you can't live an idea, either: For Amy, going to criminal court is an idea, but she has to live the reality -- and the reality is that she misses juvenile court."

Other developments this season will see Amy dealing with the repercussions of an aborted wedding and Maxine gaining a new social worker colleague (a recurring character played by Conchata Ferrell). In addition, Amy's cousin, Kyle McCarty (Kevin Rahm), a doctor, will have a new supervisor at his hospital (Jay R. Ferguson). New challenges also will arise as Amy's daughter, Lauren (Karle Warren), makes the transition from elementary school to junior high.

Already in syndication, prospects are good for "Amy" to run seven seasons or more on CBS.

"I certainly hope so," Tellem says. "This season, they're under the gun with the competition, but 'Judging Amy' has delivered really solid numbers -- and certainly our hope is that it will last for many years to come."

Daly originally signed on for seven seasons but says she will "take it as far as it goes, all the way to the end."

Stern says that as long as the series remains vital, seven seasons -- or more -- sound fine to him.

"The audience will leave if the show becomes too repetitive or loses its originality or its truthfulness," he says.

Stern adds, though, that "Amy" is a show that tells human stories, which, unlike procedural crime dramas, can remain fresh for a long time. Long enough, perhaps, for "Amy" to finally secure an outstanding drama Emmy nom to go with its acting accolades.

from K92FM Entertainment - "Spoiler" in terms of who'll gueststar in the upcoming episode:

Quote:
Cheech Marin To Join 'Judging Amy'

Cheech Marin will be joining the cast of CBS's Judging Amy starting on January 6th. He'll have a multi-episode role as Ignacio Messina, a landscape architect who works on the home of Amy Gray, played by Amy Brenneman, and Maxine Gray, portrayed by Tyne Daly. Love sparks between Marin and Daly's characters.


Marin is best known for his many Cheech And Chong films, co-starring Tommy Chong. He also appeared in Tin Cup and the Spy Kids trilogy.

Marin recently starred in Fox's new comedy The Ortegas, a series whose future is unknown. It was scheduled to air this fall on Sunday nights at 8:30 p.m. ET, but was yanked from the schedule when Fox moved The Bernie Mac Show to Sundays.

Marin's other TV work includes Nash Bridges and a year on The Golden Palace, a Golden Girls spin-off minus Bea Arthur. Marin jokes about the fact that he and Oceans Eleven star Don Cheadle were the only ethnic people in the Golden Palace cast: "It was Betty White, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty, and me and Don Cheadle. He was the manager-desk clerk and I was the cook. And so we said we were the Afro-Cuban rhythm section of the Lawrence Welk band on that show."

2003 SAG Actor Awards: HBO Soars on Wings of 'Angels'
Angels in America, Six Feet Under, and The West Wing lead the pack in the SAG Awards race

By David Sheward


[...]

Moving to actresses in dramatic series, O'Neil likes Tyne Daly of CBS's Judging Amy. "This year she had a reunion with her Cagney and Lacey co-star Sharon Gless, and her fiance Richard Crenna died in real life, so they reflected that on the show," said O'Neil. "She's also an actor's actor and has won six Emmys." He predicted that the distaff nominees in this category will be Daly, Allison Janney of The West Wing, Six Feet Under's Frances Conroy, and "a few surprises." Added Roush, "Maybe Marg Helgenberger of CSI, Lily Tomlin from West Wing, and maybe Sharon Stone, who had a very interesting story arc in some guest appearances on The Practice." The SAG Awards include guest appearances as well as regular cast members in its series nominations.

Speaking of guest stars, Roush would also include Lena Olin as the enigmatic spy-mother of Jennifer Garner on ABC's Alias, as well as regulars Garner, Victor Garber, and Ron Rifkin. Another crime-stopping ABC actor on Roush's list is Carla Gugino of Karen Sisco, which is currently on hiatus. "She was best-known before this as the mom in the Spy Kids movies. She plays a sexy, cool, funny U.S. marshall rounding up fugitives. It's a great star performance in an offbeat series. There's also Amber Tamblyn from CBS's Joan of Arcadia. That's another offbeat show about this girl who is freaked out when God starts to talk to her in the form of people around her. It's definitely not Touched by an Angel. It has a nice edge."

Gavron and Bruce Morris of Ross Reports would add Rachel Griffiths and Lauren Ambrose of Six Feet Under to the list of worthy nominees for the female dramatic categories.

CBS Renews Faves

With Best Comedy Emmy winner “Everybody Loves Raymond” on the fence about returning for a ninth season, CBS has penciled in most of its schedule for the fall. Surprise freshman sensation “Joan of Arcadia” is set to return next season, along with the new sitcom “Two and a Half Men.” CBS has also renewed “Survivor” for two more installments, joining solid performers “J.A.G.,” “Judging Amy” and “The King of Queens” as established programs that will be back next year.
