The Newsroom actress Alison Pill and Jay Baruchel have ended their engagement, US Weekly reports.
Pill, 27, and Baruchel, 30, met on the set of the film Goon and got engaged in December 2010. Although they were planning to wed in September 2012, the nuptials were postponed.
Aaron Sorkin is well aware that critics had a lot to say about The Newsroom's first season. Whether he plans to do anything differently with regard to the many complaints is a different story.
"As far as criticism goes, there was a lot, so it would be hard to address this and not that," Sorkin, the show's creator and executive producer, told TVGuide.com at Sunday's PaleyFest panel. "There are plenty of TV critics I respect, and I read them and I think about what they're saying. But when it comes time to write, you really got to go in and do your thing and not have too many voices in your head."
Looks like Alison Pill's role on The Newsroom is wearing off on her.
The actress, who plays clumsy associate producer Maggie Jordan on the HBO drama, gave her Twitter followers an eyeful this morning when she accidentally tweeted a nude photo of herself. The actress quickly deleted the photo and apologized to her more than 13,000 followers.
"The first rule of being a female journalist," political reporter Susan Berg (Carla Gugino) tells a younger female colleague in the third episode of USA's miniseries Political Animals, "[is] if you s--- where you eat, don't cry about it. ... You want to be taken seriously? Take yourself seriously."
This single line of dialogue makes it clear that there's a much-needed crossover episode hidden in the summer TV lineup. Could Susan please take a temporary consulting gig in New York and talk some professional sense into the women of The Newsroom?
There aren't enough words. Except in the world of Aaron Sorkin, where there are always enough, maybe too many, as the Emmy- and Oscar-winning maestro of the hyper-verbal aria (The West Wing, Sports Night, The Social Network) aims his sights back on TV with the exhilarating, exasperating and often sensationally entertaining The Newsroom. (It premieres Sunday at 10/9c following summer hit True Blood.)
