Hennessy, Mitchell and Moffett fill in the blanks

MGM has rounded out the cast for “Molly,” inking deals with Jill Hennessy, Elizabeth Mitchell and D.W. Moffett to join Elisabeth Shue and Aaron Eckhart in the film.
“Molly,” which is expected to undergo a name change, is directed by John Duigan from a script by Dick Christie. Bill MacDonald is producing and Amy Heckerling is exec producing.

Thomas Jane also joined the cast earlier this month.
Shue stars in the film as the title character, a mentally handicapped woman who becomes a genius after undergoing a revolutionary medical procedure.
Eckhart will play Molly’s brother, who cares for her after she is released from an institution. Hennessy, who is best known for her three-year stint on NBC’s drama series “Law and Order,” co-stars as the doctor who performs the surgery on Molly, and later falls in love with Buck.

Moffett — whose feature credits include Bernardo Bertolucci’s “Stealing Beauty,” “Black Widow” and “Pacific Heights” — plays Buck’s best friend, an attorney. And Mitchell takes on the role of a psychiatrist who convinces Buck to let his sister undergo the operation. Mitchell recently appeared in the HBO telepic “Gia” and currently co-stars in Fox’s new drama series “Significant Others.”

The film goes before the cameras Sunday in Los Angeles, for a possible release in late 1998 or early 1999.

TV Guide Interview About Significant Others

The last time Elizabeth Mitchell watched herself on television, she had to keep jumping up to block the set from her father’s view. Not that she was ashamed of her work in January’s gritty HBO movie Gia, but it included several nude love scenes with actress Angelina Jolie. Happily, the 27-year-old can sit still for her new role, that of a “very organized, very funny” newlywed on the Fox comedy-drama Significant Others (premiere March 11, 9 PM/ET).

“It’s kind of thirtysomething about twentysomethings.” Mitchell says of the new series, which is from the producers of Party of Fie. “I’m married to my former boyfriend’s brother. There’s some tension between them” – a vast understatement. While the actress admits she does have sex scene in Others, “so far it’s just me in my underwear.” Laughing, she adds, “And even though everyone saw my breasts in Gia, I make them clear the set anyway.”

GIA | Fort Worth Star-Telegram Interview

Part of “Old Info And News”

EMFC_GIA_Elizabeth_Mitchell_M_00440.jpg“I don’t see why love scenes between two women should bother anyone,” says Jolie, who is married to Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting). “Sexuality shouldn’t be limited, either. I enjoyed doing the love scenes. Hopefully Elizabeth did, too. ”

She did, sort of. “It was work,” Mitchell admits. “I guess some people will find the scenes shocking. But we were all pretty comfortable with how things were on the set. I think it was executed quite tastefully. It’s a great film because of the way it’s told,” Mitchell continues. “Gia didn’t hold anything back. My character sort of fell under her spell, at least until she became a liability. But even after she pulled out of a relationship, she still cared for her. I guess Gia had that kind of effect on people. Come to think of it, so does Angie. “

L.A. Firefighters | Interview With Elizabeth

Elizabeth Mitchell | Hot Stuff

LAFirefighters elizabeth mitchell.jpgElizabeth Mitchell (Loving) finds herself putting out fires on the home front in the new Fox series L.A. Firefighters. Her character, Laura Malloy, is a schoolteacher who is uneasy with her husband’s dangerous job as a fireman.

“She’s strong woman who is totally confused right now,” say Mitchell. “She’s crazy in love with her husband, Jack (Jarrod Emick), but he is constantly gone, and she is always afraid is going to die. She’s a mothering person who’s always wanted a mothering-type life and she doesn’t have one.”

The actress is used to the Sturm und Drang – she was on a soap, after all – but the on-location shooting schedule and single-camera technique have taken some getting used to.

“I enjoy it, but it is very hard. One day I had to burst into tears about 100 times, ” she recalls. “It was for three or four different shots of one scene, so that was really fascinating for me. On the soap you did the same scene once, maybe twice and only three times if you were really bad.”

“Being outside is weird, too,” Mitchell continues. “It’s physically a lot harder than soaps because you’re awake longer and on the set longer. All my stuff is done on location. We’ve shot on a beach and on a playground – even our bedroom is on locations!”

These bedroom scenes are pretty steamy, thanks to the hunky Emick, who made a name for himself on Broadway (including Miss Saigon and Damn Yankees, for which he won a Tony) before heading west.

According to Mitchell, “All the women on the set were saying ‘My god, where did he come from?’ Our first scene was a love scene, by the way. I had never met him before, but he is delightful. He’s a strong actor, and he’s right there with you in every scene.”

Mitchell keeps in touch with her former Loving co-stars “in a roundabout way, through different members of the crew.  Everyone is so spread out these days, but sometimes I’ll see someone and it’s great.”

SOM Interview About The Poland Spring Commercial

Part of “Old Info And News”

April 4, 1995

pscom.jpgAh, sweet misery!

Here for the first time, Elizabeth Mitchell (Dinah Lee) reveals a secret she’s been harbouring for the past two years. In order to land the still-airing commercial for Poland Springs water, Elizabeth fibbed to producers about knowing how to cross-country ski. Since she had downhill skiing experience, she figured she could wing it with the help of a how-to-book – and it worked!

“But little did I know that they’d get us up at 4 in the morning and have us ski for nine hours,” recalls Elizabeth. “We did that for two days, and at the end of each day I was dying.” While the rest of the cast and crew went out barhopping, Elizabeth stayed behind in her hotel room nursing her aching muscles. “I was sitting in the bathtub going ‘Oh my God,’ I was in so much pain.” But the agony was evidently worth it. “I made a nice amount of money on it,” smiles Elizabeth.
