Joy is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty and love.

“Law & Order: SVU” casts Virginia Madsen as Rollins’ mom

“Law & Order: SVU” casts Virginia Madsen as Rollins’ mom

•• Virginia Madsen will appear in the sixth episode of season 17. Rollins’ (Kelli Giddish) family is coming to town this season on Law & Order: SVU. The NBC drama has tapped Virginia Madsen to play her mother, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The Sideways actress will be joined by True Blood alum Lindsay Pulsipher, who returns as Rollins’ troublesome sister, Kim.

Virginia Madsen will play Beth Anne Rollins, whom showrunner Warren Leight describes as a “very protective” matriarch. “In theory, Amanda Rollins is her successful daughter. [She’s] college-educated, a detective, moved to New York, so of course the mother likes the daughter who has a warrant out for her arrest, has been involved with very sketchy men and has run her life into the ground,” Leight tells THR. “Beth Anne Rollins thinks that daughter can’t make mistake and Amanda has turned her back on the family.”

Virginia Madsen and Pulsipher will both appear in the sixth episode of season 17, which coincidentally also marks Leight’s 100th episode since taking over as showrunner.. Virginia Madsen’s other credits include Monk, Hell on Wheels and Witches of East End. She is repped by UTA and Untitled Entertainment. Law & Order: SVU returns on Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. on NBC.

Virginia Madsen stars in The Lone Bellow’s powerful “Fake Roses” video

Virginia Madsen stars in The Lone Bellow’s powerful “Fake Roses” video

•• Zach Williams, Brian Elmquist, and Kanene Pipkin, the trio of Brooklyn transplants who record soulful, sepia-toned folk-pop as The Lone Bellow—released their second acclaimed collection, Then Came the Morning, earlier this year.

The tune is an ode to Williams’ mother-in-law, and when he called EW to discuss the song and video—which stars the brilliant Virginia Madsen—the song’s story unraveled through his thoughtful anecdotes about how his mother-in-law and her sister came to be named, respectively, Edna and Fredna, and falling in love with his now-wife at 15-years-old. Here’s the tale of “Fake Roses” and its video, which is streaming below, in Williams’ own words:

“Now we only know a couple people in the movie/TV world, and one of them is this lady Sophia Bush. A few years ago I played a show at her house and Virginia Madsen was there. So when I was thinking for this video, I was like, ‘Sophia knows Virginia, I’m going to see how this goes.’ So I called her and told her that we basically didn’t have a budget but would she mind giving us three days and doing this. Immediately, she said yes.”

 

Lost Boy premieres tonight at 8/7c on Lifetime

Lost Boy premieres tonight at 8/7c on Lifetime

•• Tonight’s Lifetime movie Lost Boy is about a six-year-old boy who goes missing, then turns up eleven years later with very unexpected results. So is the movie based on a true story or is it fiction?

Although Lifetime has built quite the stable of movies based on real-life kidnappings, like Cleveland Abduction and Kidnapped: The Hannah Anderson Story, Lost Boy is not based on a true story.

Although it was inspired by one! Jennifer Maisel, who wrote the screenplay for Lost Boy, revealed in a recent interview with Newsday that she first got the idea for the script after hearing about a real life kidnapping. Jennifer says she was on a beach in California when a small child went missing. Thankfully, that child was soon found, but the spark was already there for what would eventually become Lost Boy.

Lost Boy premieres tonight at 8/7c on Lifetime. Here is the synospis of Lost Boy from Lifetime followed by the trailer:

In Lost Boy, six-year-old Mitchell Harris disappeared without a trace while spending the day at the lake with his mother (Virginia Madsen), father, and sister (Sosie Bacon). Eleven years later, Mitchell is found and brought back home – but his return leads to events that shake the family to the core once more.

Watch David O. Russell’s “Joy” First Trailer

•• Fox has released the first trailer for David O. Russell’s Joy, reuniting his Silver Linings team of Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro. The Christmas 2015 release tells the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce.

Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen round out the cast. Like Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love. From the looks of this first glimpse, Fox has a hearty feel-good holiday picture on its hands.

Russell penned the screenplay from a story he wrote with Annie Mumolo. Annapurna’s Megan Ellison is on-board as producer alongside John Davis, John Fox, Jonathan Gordon and Ken Mok. Michele Ziegler co-produces while Matthew Budman, Mary McLaglen, George Parra and Ethan Smith as exec producing.
