Jamie Stringer (Jessica Capshaw) to Jimmy Berluti (Michael Badalucco) in The Good Night [The Practice, S7E09].
You guys all know it’s gonna be a long, long Summer hiatus before we get to know that Richard is NOT dead and we can witness the aftermath of Arizona’s cheating. I have no idea how I’m gonna be able to wait. Actually I know I will probably rewatch seasons 5 ton 9 of Grey’s Anatomy.
But for now, I started watching The Practice, on Sunday. From season 7, when Jessica arrives. And I don’t know why I didn’t watch it before because it is an excellent show. All the cast is terrific and it’s a guest star galore (if you know me, you know I love the intense satisfaction you get from pointing at your screen saying: “Thom Barry!”, “Kate Burton!”, “Holland Taylor!” when recognizing guests. What I love even more is turning into imdb and listing the other stuff they were in and underlining “funny how Jessica and Kate Burton are both on Grey’s…”).
And I love Jessica on that show, as Jamie. She is talented, perky, idealistic and pretty. And I love how she insists on it:
“You listen to me…I graduated high school in 3 years. I graduated Yale with honors, I made law review at Harvard. I excel at everything I do. I’m even pretty!” [S7E03]
“Bobby, next to looks, I pride myself on my research!” [S7E14]
Also,I can relate. Although I didn’t flirt with every professor I ever had. Just one.
Audrey Hepburn, who would be 84 today, sharing wisdom.
Happy Birthday Beautiful Audrey!!!
Daniel Day-Lewis, melting my heart with his nod to Phoenix in his moving, sincere, humble speech at the SAG Awards. If you remember, Joaquin Phoenix said in his speech when he won the London Critics Circle Award for The Master: “ There’s an up-and-coming actor named Daniel who’s in a movie called ‘Lincoln.’ You should check it out.”
These men are two tremendously talented actors, they’re also very private and humble about their craft. And as if they needed to be more endearing, they’re extremely respectful of their fellow actors.
