Journalist Matt Teague’s written about his wife’s passing and a friend who moved in to help. It’s now a movie. Casey Affleck is Teague. Dakota Johnson, the wife Nicole. Jason Segel plays the title character dubbed “Our Friend.” Ridley Scott produced.
Dakota: “We filmed in Teague’s small Alabama town. Everyone there knew who we were and why we were there. Restaurant people even told us where Matt and Nicole would sit.”
Jason: “Matt went through as hard a thing as one can go through. To come out the other side as a story of friendship was remarkable, a lesson to me on how to frame things that happen in our lives so that we can find some meaning and go on.”
Teague: “The story’s of hanging on and who you hang on with. And the hope of something joyful on the other side. This year many have had hard times for different reasons. With this, they’ll maybe feel a little less alone and have some hope of getting through.”
It’s now streaming, and if you can find some theaters, it’s in them, too.
Isle be scared to see his ’do
Ireland’s Kenneth Branagh is into TV’s five-episode Brit series “This Sceptered Isle.” About, claims the scenario, Britain’s not-so-great handling of the coronavirus pandemic. He’ll play Prime Minister Boris Johnson, whose disheveled yet thinning hairs remain yellower than Dolly Parton’s.
Branagh’s had five Oscar nominations, four Golden Globe noms, won four BAFTAs and an Emmy. To play the P.M., he’ll add a hairmesser.
Oh, the irony, regarding Bar
New York’s bar is pondering Rudy’s disbarment. Claiming he violated ethical constraints. For his pre-insurrection speech, meritless “evidence of fraud” lawsuits without bringing “evidence of fraud,” then telling the court: “This is not a fraud case.”
Get this for irony. Long back, our then-Chief Judge Sol Wachtler had his bad time. Many attorneys were outraged at the force used against him. Rudy called it justified saying he “was a dangerous man.”
Friday Wachtler receives New York Bar Foundation’s inaugural President’s Award for his “indelible impact on the law.” At that same meeting, they reconsider the removal of Rudy Giuliani.
Fashion choice I won’t miss
Glad Fauci’s less grouchy. Also glad it’s nix and to the sticks for Deborah Birx. A great doctor, but enough with those ceaseless silk shmattas strangling her neck, shoulder, throat. All civilization has them. They get worn in the Amazon, through the Congo, under the Baltic. Hermès was glad to get rid of them.
Unsolicited LiLo update
Michael Lohan called. We first met a century ago, when his young kid Lindsay Lohan was on the set filming her first starring movie role.
He now said: “Lindsay’s in Dubai. Five years sober. She has a jewelry line. Also a boyfriend.” Big surprise. “And she hates the paparazzi.” Bigger surprise.
“I live in Houston. I run an addiction center in their hospital the Heights. We’re all OK. Even my ex-wife, who was always drinking and had an online boyfriend for seven years.”
Not sure why he called, but nice to hear from him every 10 years or so.
Lingerie company’s created a woman’s “butt enhancer” called “wonderpants. Question: After six months, will it break out in cellulite?
Only asked in New York, kids, only in New York.
