You work with your husband William H. Macy frequently. He’s currently directing you in a movie. Tell me a little bit about what that process is like.
I’ve worked with Bill my whole life. We met at a theater company and so I find it incredibly pleasurable. It’s kind of like any sport you play — if you play with someone that’s above your level, your quality of game rises.
So do you guys bring work home with you as well? Or do you say you’re not going to talk about movies when you get home?
I think the only rule we’ve ever made, which we’ve sort of broken a lot, is that we don’t talk about acting in bed when we go to sleep. So there have been times when I’ve gone, “Oh, I have a really good idea, you have to get up and I’ll tell you.”
Oh, funny. Tell me a little about “Ruderless” (directed by Macy). Where’s it headed, and what are you most excited about?
They start principal photography tomorrow. He has an amazing cast; it’s Billy Crudup and Anton Yelchin and Laurence Fishburne. It’s a great movie, and I’m really excited about it and I’m so happy to be directed by my husband.
New photos up tonight in the Felicity Huffman Source Gallery from last night’s premiere of “Trust Me.”
Another big update to the Felicity Huffman Source Gallery – Screencaps from her role in the movie Phoebe in Wonderland.
FX Networks is creating a third channel, completing a “suite” that will separately target different audiences and become a home to three of its current comedies and a late-night talk show, the network announced to advertisers Thursday.
FXX, which will replace and expand upon the current Fox Soccer Channel, will launch Sept. 2, targeting the “millennial” audience of adults ages 18 to 34.
A fourth comedy will be added later, and FXX also will air reruns of How I Met Your Mother, Parks and Recreation, Freaks and Geeks, Arrested Development and Sports Night.
Felicity Huffman’s new housewife is far from desperate.
The Emmy-winning actress has been cast as a suburban assassin in the Fox pilot Boomerang.
The show is about family that works as a hit squad for U.S. government. She’ll play the show’s female lead, Margie, the matriarch of the Hamilton clan, a “briskly professional assassin who can kill and dispose of a suspected terrorist in the afternoon — then switch to wife and mother mode without a hitch.”
This marks Huffman’s first TV gig since ABC’s Desperate Housewives concluded last year. Boomerang is from Awake writer Davey Holmes, along with fellow executive producers John Wells, Craig Brewer (who will direct the pilot) and Andrew Stearn.
