How excited are you by the prospect of these two gracing your television screen? Really excited? Go ahead, spell it with your peas, I’ll wait. In case you missed their entire feature length-stealing turn in Easy A, here are two of our greatest character actors, Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson, doing what they do best; charming your Costco pants/skirts/jodhpurs right off:
Ok, take a moment and rerobe yourself while I tell you that Tucci will be hosting a television show called “Vine Talk” on PBS where he and his charming actor friends will drink wine, talk about wine and, one can only hope, get a little tipsy in the process. The promo clip for the the show, which I’ve included below, is heavy on the Clarkson (and Woodchuck Todd!). What I wouldn’t give to be a fly in that particular glass of Chardonnay. The show premieres in April and will feature other actor guests such as John Lithgow. (Sidebar! On a recent episode of Doug Benson’s Podcast, they referred to Lithgow as “Johnny Go-Go”…to his face. And he didn’t trinity kill them. Lithgow rhymes with “golf pro,” you see. I would like to make “Johnny Go-Go” a thing. Who’s with me?)
Joanna Robinson once met the absolutely luminous Patricia Clarkson, who we all know deserves to be more than a character actress. I suggested, at one point, that she tap dance…and she did. Shuffle ball changed my life.
