the big c and reasons i will watch aka LAURA LINNEY I LOVE YOU

Laura Linney is one reason not to lose faith in movies today. This woman is amazing; she's a godsend. You can blow smoke out of your ass about how great Meryl Streep is but this woman, LL, she has stuck with the game for long enough to finally be getting some well-deserved recognition. And she really has slaved- been in forgettable features like the Crucible and even pulling her weight on Frasier (which was such a good role for her, I might add. LAURA LINNEY AND KELSEY FOREVER). she started off in Lorenzo's Oil and has been going ever since, but just getting stronger with age, which usually is NOT how Hollywood operates. she was AWESOME in the Savages (SEE IT, I feel like the role she played is me in the future) and broke your heart (if you had one, Fever Ray!) in Love Actually (also me in the future, totally can see it, hot person from work and I are about to finally sleep together and I have to go do a family thing ugh it will happen). and she kicked so much ass as Abigal Adams. FEW LADIES COULD DO THAT IN TODAY'S WORLD.

Now she's about, as of August 16th, to make her way into leading a television show that premieres after Weeds on Showtime. I don't get Showtime so I probably cannot watch. :( sad face. but! you can! and you should!

WHY? DID I NOT SELL YOU ON LINNEY ALREADY? why did I need to sell you, anyway! jerk:

1.) she's Laura Linney
2.) she's Laura Linney
3.) she's Laura Linney
4.) I write screenplays for her when I get bored in places like church and Wal-Mart.
5.) she's Laura Linney
6.) she's Laura Linney
7.) she needs an OSCAR already, if Marisa Tomei has one, don't even get me started....
8.) she and Liam Neeson are BFFs. that's like me being best friends with Natalie Portman!
9.) this article
10.) SHE IS LAURA LINNEY

The Big C will be interesting to see- it's a dramedy about a woman living with a terminal illness (obviously cancer, hence the title). in two regards: how they portray it and also how Linney handles a series.

THOUGHTS?
WATCH THIS FOR ME?

p.s. how is Hung? I want to see that.
