Sarah coming back to Masters of Sex

Posted by Gator on June 22nd, 2015

Michael Sheen said in a recent interview that Sarah will be back in Masters of Sex this season, perhaps even in a scene with him:

DL: Sarah was previously on Masters–will she make a reappearance this season?

MS: Yes. She’s in the next episode, so, she’ll be back. We see a bit more about what’s going on between her and Betsy (Brandt, who plays Barbara Sanderson), on their relationship. I don’t want to give anything away, but yes, we check back in with them.

DL: How much fun is it having Sarah on set with you?

MS: Up to this point, we haven’t done any scenes together, so we’ve never been on set together, unfortunately. But that might change this season!


Video: Sarah on Ellen 6/3/15

Pic1_EllenPCapdSarah appeared on today’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Highlighting Sarah’s activism, Ellen DeGeneres complimented her for her charity work, such as getting clean water in Africa, then pointed out Sarah has said she won’t get married until it’s legal for everyone to get married. Sarah replied, “That said, I love when my friends get married and I’m so happy for them. But I just don’t understand the instinct to want to join a club that is elitist. It’s like joining a country club that doesn’t allow Jews or Black people. What’s the difference.

Ellen reacted, “Well, thank you. I appreciate that.” Then joked, “I speak for all gays.”

Sarah added, “And besides that, I don’t know that I would want to get the government involved in my love, personally.”  Fans have heard all those lines before, but when she’s on Ellen, there are probably lots of people watching who are unfamiliar, so…

Anyway, Ellen then took the cue to “talk about your love, Michael Sheen.” Sarah describes them as having been together “a little over a year.” And raised her hand in a “show off the ring” position (no, there’s no ring) to lead into a funny moment on that subject we hadn’t seen before.

Asked about how much they have in common, Sarah said, “We like almost none of the same things.  We’re like minded in the most important ways. But he loves magic and he likes going to Pirate Adventure, and things like that. And I would rather be home watching Law and Order.

Ellen pushed her: “You don’t like magic?” and Sarah was off on another familiar routine: “No. I get a rage. I like real magic, like sunsets, or how I can move my hands using only my mind, but magic isn’t real. [Then to the camera:] It’s not real. There are people that think magic is real, that magicians are real. Michael Jackson thought that David Blaine was magic. I just feel like if you think that magicians are really magic, you should maybe not be able to vote. You think this person’s magic and what they’re going with their trick is card tricks? 

Ellen: “What do you want them to do?”  Sarah: “I don’t know, but that joke has never worked.”  Then they conferred about how the joke could be improved.

See it all for yourself in the clip below.

Justin Kirk is returning to HBO.

The Angels in America star has joined the cast of the premium cabler’s Sarah Silverman comedy, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The untitled pilot is described as a comedic look at a pathologically honest woman (Silverman) having a modern midlife crisis. Silverman stars as Jude, an abrasively honest tomboy described as a 21st century woman who works as a video game designer. Kirk will play Stacy, Jude’s paranoid, charismatic and occasionally antagonistic boss at the video game company. 

Smash’s Jack Davenport, Kerri Kennedy and Mark Cohen co-star in the comedy written by Lucy Prebble (Secret Diary of a Call Girl). Prebble, Silverman, Ash Atalla, Amy Zvi and Dan Hine exec produce.

For Kirk, repped by UTA, Management 360 and attorney PJ Shapiro, the casting brings the Golden Globe-nominated Weeds alum back to HBO after he toplined its Emmy-winning miniseries Angels in America, for which he also garnered an Emmy nom.

His credits include Nobody Walks, Mr. Morgan’s Last Love and the upcoming Walter.

The new (“March 13″) issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine has a “News+Notes” sidebar article that includes mention of what Sarah auctioned at this year’s Night of Too Many Stars benefit for autism. Giving away (in advance of tomorrow night’s Comedy Central broadcast of the event that was taped live February 28 at the Beacon Theater in New York) that Sarah’s services treating “you like her parents” were won for a $15,000 bid, the article reports:

Sarah Silverman directed a rant intended for her mother at the two winners: “Mom, you never supported me. When I told you I wanted my face on money, you rolled your eyes. It made me feel like shit.”
