Studio 60 Fodder

Studio 60: New movies open today

As reported earlier, Aaron Sorkin's movie Charlie Wilson's War opens today (December 21). Sorkin adapted the screenplay from the book by George Crile.

The movie has been nominated for several awards, notably Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture-Comedy or Musical and Best Screenplay-Motion Picture (as well as actor, supporting actor, and supporting actress). Aaron Sorkin was also nominated for a Critics' Choice Award from the Broadcast Film Critics Association for Best Writer (along with a best supporting actor nomination for Philip Seymour Hoffman). The actors have been nominated for a number of other awards, but they aren't directly related to Studio 60.

Aaron Sorkin also won a Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Award for best adapted screenplay (winners were announced December 9).

The film itself was listed as one of the year's 10 best movies at the Dallas Ft. Worth Film Critics Awards.

Also opening today is Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. This is of note because Simon Helberg, Alex Dwyer on the show, is in the movie playing Dreidel L'Chaim. Harold "Egon" Ramis is playing L'Chai'm, so I'm hoping/assuming those characters are related.

Ayda Field (Jeannie Whatley) is a regular on Back to You.

Chris Carter is working on a new X-Files movie. Amanda Peet (Jordan McDeere) has been signed to appear in the movie. So has Xzibit, but he's also not related to Studio 60. I just thought it bore mentioning. Amanda also starred in Martian Child with John Cusack and provided a voice for the animated film Terra.

Nathan Corddry (Tom Jeter) was in The Nanny Diaries.

Merritt Wever (Suzanne the PA-Cum-Assistant) was in both Into the Wild and Michael Clayton, both films that are being highly recognized in the awards season.

Columbus Short (Darius Hawthorne) is in This Christmas, which is still playing in many/most markets.

Nate Torrence (Dylan Killington) was in the short film Driftwood.

Steven Weber's been keeping busy. He was in the TV movie More of Me and an episode of Side Order of Life. He was also in an episode of Brothers and Sisters and three episodes of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.

Sarah Paulson (Harriet Hayes) was in an episode of Desperate Housewives playing fellow former Mighty Sorkin Player Fellicity Huffman's sister.

Camille Chen (Samantha Li) was in an episode of Ghost Whisperer.

Lucy Davis (Lucy Kenwright) appeared in an episode of Californication.

Bradley Whitford is keeping busy with various causes including Clothes off our Backs, the charity he runs with his wife, actress Jane Kaczmarek, autism, and California voter reform. He's doing a lot that takes a bit of work to find, and it's been eaten in two separate computer crashes, so I'll give details on those in a later post.

Almost all the cast has other projects in production or post. I'll post those as we get closer to their release dates.
