The Beast | US Weekly Rerview

Part of “Old Info And News”

US Weekly gives ABC’s The Beast Two Stars.

ABC Wednesdays 10pm | Series Premiere, June 13

The over-the-top premiere episode of this ensemble drama really piles on the goodies: a mad bomber, a televised execution in the electric chair, a nude scene featuring Elizabeth Mitchell (the lovely lesbian from both ER and HBO’s Gia). She plays Alice Allenby, a magazine writer who is persuaded by mogul Jackson Burns (Frank Langella) to work for his new 14-hours news channel.

As one character explains, the call the channel the Beast “because it’s always hungry.”

You can tell the staff is hip because anchor Reese McFadden (Jason Geddrick) doesn’t shave, drinks whiskey at office meetings and talks like Dennis Miller with worse gag writers. The premiere is so frenetic that you can overlook the yadda-yadda about media power (“The camera is God”).

Adding to the journalistic navel-gazing is the channel’s odd polity of broadcasting its inner workings live on the Internet via feeds controlled by a mysterious figure Harry. (“Harry is God,” says Burns, which means, logically, that Harris is the camera.)

The Beast | Entertainment Tonight Interview

ELIZABETH MITCHELL leaves her “ER” scrubs behind as she tackles a career in TV journalism in ABC’s new series, “The Beast.”

ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT: Your character is caught in a very unusual position in the first episode. It’s probably the first time a main character has been naked the whole first scene. Does that do anything particular to the scene? In other words, does she have a feeling of vulnerability or something that makes it more interesting to act the role?

ELIZABETH MITCHELL: I think KARIO SALEM (creator and star) has created such an incredibly interesting woman, a woman who seeks the truth, and that’s what drew me to the character. What I liked about that scene is that she is very free. I didn’t see it so much as vulnerable, just that she’s able to be with this man that she loves or she’s beginning to love and to be so open and so lovely with him. And therefore, when we see her in that really tight setting later, where she is interviewing for a job, we’ve seen her at her most natural, at her most essential, at her most basic. So that’s why I like that scene.

Elizabeth In The June Issue Of Mademoiselle Magazine

Part of “Old Info And News”

Elizabeth is in the June issue of Mademoiselle Magazine.

TheBeast_-_Article.jpg“I love a dress where all you feel are two straps on your shoulders.”

Elizabeth Mitchell, 31

After buzz-building turns in Gia and Frequency, she’s starring in ABC’S The Beast, in which she plays a sassy reporter.

Why she loves this dress: “I chose this Alberta Ferretti because it looks very ’20s, very Great Gatsby-esque, I love this streamlined look and wearing the sort of dress where all you feel are two straps on your shoulders. It’s like wearing nothing. This dress is sheer, which makes me feel sexy. I don’t like tight clothing. I’m somewhat voluptuous, so it doesn’t work on me. My clothes philosophy is: when you look down, they should make you happy and calm. I choose perfume the same way – whatever scent makes me feel good, loving, alive.”

She wears: slipdress, $1140, Alberta Ferretti. Shoes, $370, Chrisian Loubotin.

Part of “Old Info And News”

By Manuel Mendoza

PASADENA, Calif. – “I have a boyfriend,” Elizabeth Mitchell says to Angelina Jolie after their characters make love in the 1998 HBO film Gia. “I’m really very square.”
Ms. Mitchell, a Dallas native, easily passes for square. Tall and thin, with curly, shoulder-length tresses, she’s the innocent, all-American blonde. She grew up in Highland Park, for Pete’s sake.

Elizabeth Mitchell Stars In “The Beast”

Part of “Old Info And News”

By MICHAEL SCHNEIDER

ABC has climbed into the belly of “The Beast,” ordering six episodes of the drama series about an edgy cable news service.
“The Beast,” which comes from Imagine Television and Touchstone Television, will go into production immediately and could be ready for air by April. ABC may also decide to hold the show for fall as strike-contingent programming.

Imagine re-shot the series pilot earlier this fall, this time with Mimi Leder directing; Frank Langella was the only holdover from the original cast, which also featured Courtney B. Vance.

Skein stars Langella as media mogul Jackson Burns, whose news channel not only covers events but turns the cameras on the reporters behind the scenes. Jason Gedrick, Peter Riegert, Elizabeth Mitchell, Wendy Crewson, Naveen Andrews, April Grace, Harriet Sanson Harris and Michael Riley Burke also star.

“The Beast” is exec produced by Imagine’s Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Tony Krantz, as well as Leder, Ian Sander, Kim Moses and Kario Salem.
