'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' takes her comedy dreams on the road for season three

No Comments

Amazon Prime(NEW YORK) — The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is taking the show on the road for its third season, as Miriam “Midge” Maisel embarks on her very first comedy tour.

The former housewife, played by Emmy winner Rachel Brosnahan, is continuing to make her stand-up comedy splash — and is inspiring those around her in the process.

This season, set in the ‘60s, we’ll see Midge’s conservative Jewish mother, Rose, played by Marin Hinkle, assert her independence and begin to stand up for herself.

“I feel like we all as audience can go, ‘Look at Rose, following her daughter!’” Hinkle tells ABC Audio. “And then of course, Rose herself would never be able to admit it…I think it’s very hard for her at times to admit that she even has vulnerability or that she even learns from others.”

Seeing Midge follow her dreams is even pushing her ex-husband Joel — played by Michael Zegen — to be better. This season, he decides to open his own comedy club.

“He has to find a purpose, he has to find a path and clearly comedy wasn’t it,” Zegen says. “And then he was working at a plastics company. That wasn’t it. He worked for his father. That’s not it either. But now with this club, I think he has a purpose and he has this path that will hopefully make him happy.”

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel — also starring Alex Borstein and Tony Shalhoub — is streaming now on Amazon Prime Video.

The Aeronauts star is expecting a child with her husband, British film director Charles Guard, a rep for the actress tells People magazine.

The news comes a day after the Rogue One veteran showed an ever-so-slight baby bump on the red carpet for The Aeronauts in New York City on Wednesday night.

It’ll be the first child Jones, 36, and Guard, 43, who tied the knot in 2018 after three years of dating.

The Aeronauts opens in limited release on Friday.

Jennifer Garner reveals how she accidentally bought an "aggressive" Christmas tree

No Comments

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — While the Rockefeller tree lit up the New York City skyline on Wednesday, another large Christmas tree headed to a blissfully unaware Jennifer Garner on the other side of the country.

Garner, who revealed Thursday on Instagram, found out that she made a mistake when she allowed her kids get a bigger Christmas tree this year.  It caused quite the shock when the prodigious pine arrived.

“So I told my kids we can go bigger because we’re in a rental house and it has a really big foyer,” explains Garner in the close up video as she stands next to her tree, as to not give away the surprise.  She then holds back a laugh and continues, “But then it was delivered and I’m not sure this was the tree we picked out.”

The camera then slowly pans away to show off the colossal tree that dwarfs the 5’8″ actress, which could easily be twice her size.

Garner nervously grins up at the new festive addition to the house and marvels, “It’s a little aggressive” before the video abruptly ends.

In the caption, the 13 Going on 30 actress writes “Go big or go home,” and throws in the telling hashtag “#aggressivechristmas.”

Obviously, Garner’s celebrity friends found her misfortune a complete riot.  Best friend Reese Witherspoon simply wrote “Whoa!!” while Katie Couric joked “OH EM GEE that tree has some serious BTE (big tree energy.)”

As to how the Garner family will decorate their personal Rockefeller-sized tree, or if they even have enough tinsel and ornaments to do it justice, has yet to be seen.
