A Little Hometown Love

In this week's episode of Saving Grace, "A Little Hometown Love," we have this guy named Adam Davidson directing, and he's awesome. I believe he has won an award for directing a film, and I've heard his reel is outstanding. Holly [Hunter] and I totally dig him.A buddy of mine, Judson Mills, is in this episode too. We did a film together called Major League 3, and he's doing great work. We've had scenes for days now and are both bruised and tired. Bailey [Chase] is great in it. Judson, Bails and I had a crazy scene at my place. This is the first time it shows upon the show.Also there's a murder of a fellow cop in the bar. It takes place in the bathroom, about five feet from Grace and I. Amy Madigan guest stars and she is an amazing actress and was so freakin' good. She's definitely a standout, married to Ed Harris in real life. She's plays the wacky wife of the murder victim. It's a murder that may not get solved. Was a cool ride. Peace. KJTNT's Saving Grace airs Mondays at 10 pm/ET. read more

Now that she has screwed Mer's head (mostly) on straight on Grey's Anatomy, Amy Madigan is teaming up with longtime gal pal Holly Hunter on the third Season 2 episode of TNT's Saving Grace. "She was kinda brilliant," Hunter says of Madigan's guest-star turn as the wife of a murdered cop. "She made me really step up to the plate." Hunter and Madigan go back a ways, having previously costarred in the TV-movie Roe vs. Wade (1989). To reunite on Grace, Hunter says, "was such a privilege because she's been a friend of mine for years. And to play opposite her... she was so electrifying!" — Matt Mitovich, with reporting by Erin Fox read more

Amy Madigan has booked a multi-episode arc on Grey's Anatomy, sources confirm to me exclusively. The Oscar-nominated thesp — and former co-star of HBO's gone-but-not-forgotten Carnivale — is playing a psychiatrist who, and I'm just speculating here, may be the one to help Meredith get over her commitment issues, thus paving the way for the Mer/Der reunion Shonda Rhimes has been hyping.Meanwhile, Madigan's former Carnivale co-star, Clea DuVall, will fill the "everywoman housewife" role I teased in last week's Ask Ausiello. Her George Clooney-esque husband will be played by Jason O'Mara (Men in Trees, In Justice). I'm guessing one of them will be a patient. Both are on board for two episodes.Oh, Carnivale, how I miss thee…. read more
