Sarah will bed Ashford in Masters of Sex

Posted by Gator on July 25th, 2014

A second photo has been published of Sarah on Showtime’s Masters of Sex, although her episodes have not yet aired. This pic accompanied xfinity’s July 25 TV blog report about a recent press party held on the Masters Of Sex set in Culver City (CA). Here’s an excerpt, which includes new tidbits, including the reveal that Sarah’s Helen character will “get horizontal” with Annaleigh Ashford’s Betty:

     As Betty in the first season, we met the hard edged prostitute who helped Dr. William Masters (Michael Sheen) in the early stages of his sex study. Later in the season, however, we found that, despite being a lesbian, Betty had married pretzel mogul Gene (Greg Grunberg) and was putting her sexuality in the closet for the sake of having a more grounded, satisfying life.
     Now in Season 2, Betty is back and while she’s as sassy and ballsy as ever, she’s also still in a marriage that may satisfy her wardrobe but isn’t satisfying her sexually. That is, until Sarah Silverman’s Helen shows up and a new, closeted romance, is going to start.
     At a press party held on the Masters Of Sex set in Culver City, the actress gushed about working with Silverman. “First of all, she’s like one of the most magical people to be with on set.” And while we’re used to the comedic side of Silverman, it’s that side that helps her work her magic in the world of drama, too. “What makes great comedians great is they’re so honest,” Ashford said. “And she’s so honest and beautiful as an actress and just so giving.”
     The actress, known for her Broadway work in such shows as Kinky Boots and Hair as well as the upcoming “You Can’t Take It With You,” did also reveal that Betty and Helen do get horizontal in the course of their storyline but, perhaps to alleviate any nervousness, ended up singing a song from “Gypsy” with her co-star. Ashford recounted that in regards to their costumes for the scene she said to Silverman, “’You look like Louise, and I look like June from Gypsy.’ And [Silverman] turned around and went, ‘If momma was married…’ We sang the whole song! She knew the harmonies. We sang literally the whole song!”

Three ways to get a Sarah doodle: $50 gets you the coloring book, which includes all the celebrity doodles, one of which is by Sarah. $150 gets you an 11″ x 14″ print of Sarah’s doodle.

E! reported yesterday that Sarah attended the David Spade birthday party:

We’d love to wish David Spade a big happy birthday, but we don’t think it would compare to the well wishes he got last night. The funny guy celebrated his 50th with a small dinner at the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles that included Chris Rock, Judd Apatow, Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman and Steve Martin, according to a source.

Sarah on fashion in Harper’s Bazaar

Here’s Sarah’s 7/23/14 article on fashion
for
 
Harper’s Bazaar magazine.

By Sarah Silverman (as told to Charlotte Cowles)
HarpersBazaar.com  July 23, 2014

     I wore nothing but hoodies and jeans for the majority of my life, but when you turn 40 that becomes less cute. I’m still a slob most of the time, but I do love fashion, and I’ve grown to appreciate it more—especially people who do it really well. In my old age I’m finally getting it.
    I used to get so much anxiety when I put on a fancy dress. I’d be like, “This isn’t me! F*ck you! I’ll wear whatever the f*ck I want!” I think all comics have an inherent problem with authority, fashion or otherwise. But the part about not looking like myself has worn off—of course, I’m still me, no matter what I wear. I do feel weird in an outfit I can’t be funny in, though. Sometimes a beautiful dress just makes you talk differently: “Hi, I’m wearing Dolce & Gabbahhhna.” I need to be loose and let my face be ugly when I’m talking, if that’s what I want to do.
    Last year I met the stylists Emily Current and Meritt Elliott, and I fell in love with them. Now I do whatever they tell me. I once saw this featurette on Jack Nicholson where he says, (more…)

Dan Harmon documentary includes Sarah

Sarah appears as herself in the documentary, Harmontown, which should come to theaters this fall. The independent film organization “The Orchard” announced July 14 that it has acquired the North American distribution rights for the movie. According to their press release,  Harmontown “ follows Community creator and writer/producer Dan Harmon on tour for his eponymous podcast series. The film features appearances by Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman, Jason Sudeikis and Joel McHale – among other A-list comics.” We presume Sarah’s appearance is a cameo.
