Holly Hunter "Excited" to Be TNT's New Monday Closer

Academy Award winner Holly Hunter considers herself and her first foray into series television to be in especially good company, now that the timeslot for Saving Grace — about a hard-living lady cop touched by a rather unorthodox angel — has been changed to Mondays at 10 pm/ET, leading out of Kyra Sedgwick's own TNT drama (starting July 23). "What they’ve done with The Closer is kind of phenomenal, and what Kyra has done is really fantastic," Hunter told TVGuide.com during a Wednesday conference call. "So yeah, I think it is a vote of confidence by TNT, and we're all pretty excited about it."I think the sentiment Holly is looking for here is, "Thank yew."
