Marcia Gay Harden
The actress won an Academy Award her role in 2000's "Pollock." She doesn't think history would repeat itself.

It is not easy to find a highly watchable series among the crop of newbies being offered on TV this season, but I have found one standout. It is CBS' Code Black, and it is ER on steroids.
"Grandma" is Lily Tomlin's tour de force... a tour through the culture wars with the force of a tough, canny veteran. Tomlin has never been better as the bitter, fiercely loyal, vulnerably sentimental matriarch Elle who will do almost anything to rescue her granddaughter Sage (Julia Garner).
How does one counter such cretinous refusals to treat women with respect? When logic and legislation fail, one can try coating sexual education with a healthy dose of humor and/or sarcasm.
The new film Grandma tells a story rare for American cinema: a lesbian of advanced years (Lily Tomlin), in mourning for her soul mate and on skittish footing with the much younger woman she's been seeing (Judy Greer), is suddenly thrust into an adventure involving her teenage granddaughter (Julia Garner) and an unwanted pregnancy.
Hollywood, it seems, wants to give Lily Tomlin an award. I'm all for it; she's been around a long time and has done consistently brilliant work. But if she gets an Oscar, it shouldn't be for her new movie, Grandma, which has been receiving rapturous reviews from just about everyone.
In her latest film After Words, she portrays a single woman in her forties who is at the end of her rope. She has a plan to end her life but delays it until after a trip to Costa Rica. Watching Harden go from a beaten plain Jane to a woman on the cusp of a wonderful life makes for grand movie entertainment.
Sorkin has the advantage of viewing reality in the rear-view mirror as he writes this show, so let me indulge in similar hindsight conclusion-making.
Eddie Redmayne stars as Stephen Hawking, from his days as a Cambridge grad student in physics to his breakthrough years as a faculty physicist. It also deals with his marriage to Jane (Felicity Jones), who weds him even though he's been given a death-sentence diagnosis of ALS.
We spent a day on the set chatting to the cast and getting to the bottom of what makes it magic.
This Turkey Day happens to land on a criminally and perennially underappreciated actor's birthday: Ed Harris. Main course or side dish, first billing or second fiddle, Ed Harris is a truly gifted actor deserving of more recognition. So let's give it to him.
