By Ali • Comments Off on Lauren Graham, Josh Wiggins Celebrate Military Dog Heroes at ‘Max’ PremiereArticles / Interviews, Max

Last night Lauren attended the LA premiere of her new film Max. Variety gives us a look at the night with quotes from members of the cast including Lauren.

Puppy love reigned at Tuesday night’s premiere of Warner Bros.-MGM’s “Max” with one of the star canines — a Belgian Malinois named Jagger — drawing most of the attention on the red carpet.

The tale of a military dog returning to the U.S. and dealing with the loss of his handler, “Max” evoked strong emotions at the Egyptian screening and the after-party at Sadie’s.

Jonathan Glickman, president of MGM’s motion picture group, noted the film is particularly timely, given the recent introduction of a bill by Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., to ensure military working dogs come home to the United States after they have been relieved from their service in combat roles overseas. He said handlers who wish to reunite with their dogs generally have to cover the costs themselves of bringing them back to the U.S. The bill would require the Department of Defense to cover those costs.

(An amendment to the bill, now awaiting President Obama’s signature, mandates that first right of adoption will be given to the dogs’ handlers and families.)

The cast and crew acknowledged the bond between canines and their owners. “I love dogs; I have three of my own,” said human star Josh Wiggins. “A Rottweiler, a black Lab, and a Chiweenie.”

Director Boaz Yakin, who has credits going back to 1989’s “The Punisher,” said that he and writer Sheldon Lettich had wanted to do a hero dog movie for many years. Lettich recalled the seed of the idea came more than a decade ago when he adopted what he thought were a pair of German shepherd puppies — named Charlie and Tia — and realized that they were actually Belgian Malinois after reading about the bomb-sniffing dogs at LAX.

“The photo in the L.A. Times looked exactly like my dogs,” Lettich recalled. “It turned out that the military had started changing to the Belgian Malinois, so that gave us the basis for our movie.”

Lettich began researching the U.S. Marine dogs at Camp Pendleton and adopted a third Belgian Malinois named Zoe a few years ago after Charlie and Tia passed on.

Lauren Graham, who plays the mother of Wiggins’ character, said she had a personal connection to the film in that the choir in the film comes from a church her grandfather attended.

“Many of them knew my grandfather,” she added. “I have a Southern family and felt very connected to the film.”

Among those at the after-party were MGM’s Gary Barber, cast members Dejon LaQuake and Mia Xitlali.

By Ali • Comments Off on ‘Parenthood’: Bonding With the Bravermans on the Set of NBC’s Beloved Family DramaArticles / Interviews, Parenthood

THR spends a day at an abandoned hospital with the cast of the Jason Katims drama where its impending series finale is temporarily overshadowed by death — and marriage proposals.

A strange sadness pervades Parenthood’s set this busy November morning.

For one thing, the cast and crew of NBC’s critically admired family drama — produced by Friday Night Lights mastermind Jason Katims — aren’t at their regular cozy home on the Universal lot in Burbank; instead, they’re assembled on the dingy site of an abandoned hospital in Inglewood. Workmen feverishly have labored to install lighting fixtures and find working circuit breakers, but there still are cobwebs on the floors and ceilings amid a thick layer of dust on the walls, giving the setting a creepy atmosphere.

The fact that the scene they’re filming involves the deteriorating health of the Braverman family patriarch — Zeek (Craig T. Nelson), who’s in the hospital after a heart attack — isn’t making the mood any cheerier. Especially considering that everyone on set by this point likely knows the character isn’t going to make it.

But what’s really bumming people out is that this is the third-to-last episode before Parenthood, which aired with modest ratings for six years, finishes its run (its series finale was Jan. 29).

“We are like family,” notes Peter Krause, who plays Adam. “I don’t want to think about not playing with these people again.”

Krause will continue playing with at least one of his castmates; he and Lauren Graham (who plays Adam’s sister, Sarah) are a real-life couple. And Dax Shepard (Crosby) won’t have much time to mourn either; he’s writing, starring and directing a remake?of CHiPs. Likewise for Ray Romano (Hank; he gets this episode’s last scene, proposing to Sarah), who next stars in HBO’s upcoming ’70s rock drama; Erika Christensen (Julia), who stars on the ABC anthology Wicked Crime; and Mae Whitman (Amber), whose film career took off with a starring role in The DUFF. Certainly, Nelson won’t be staying dead for long — he’s headlining NBC’s Coach reboot next season.

By Ali • Comments Off on How to Choose the Perfect Dildo and More Secrets From TV’s Top ActressesArticles / Interviews, Parenthood

The Hollywood Reporter did an article on some of TV’s top actresses such as Caitriona Balfe, Christine Baranski, Kathy Bates, Linda Cardellini, Edie Falco, Vera Farmiga, Sutton Foster, and more. They included Lauren and here is the feature on her:

THR asked: When were you the most panicked as an actress this season and how did you overcome those fears?

Lauren Graham
Parenthood (NBC)
“The first thing that comes to mind is Mae Whitman’s character gave birth, and we had about 20 minutes to do it because of restrictions that had to do with the baby and the abandoned hospital we were shooting in. That was a panicky moment technically. But to me the biggest challenge was restraint, and that’s something I learned over time on Parenthood. Especially after people crying — both the actors in scenes and the audience watching — became a thing. I tried to really ask myself, especially in the last six episodes, was it necessary? And was my emotion, in some way, going to rob the audience? I have a close relationship with my dad, and going through that journey of Zeek being sick with Craig [T. Nelson] was very personally emotional. You have to be disciplined. Those scenes with Craig, I just thought, ‘If someone is ill, you don’t show them how worried you are’ — not even my character, who had her limitations.”
