This photo is in honor of Sex and The City 2 – which happens to feature our own Lynn Cohen as Miranda’s nanny “Magda”. Lynn, who is amazingly talented, plays “Eleanor” in Adam’s film Hello Lonesome , an older sassy widow who ends up becoming tight with her quirky, bizarre & much younger neighbor Gary played by James Urbaniak. Urbaniak was also the freaky weird foot fetish shoe store guy in a season 2 episode of Sex and the City – remember? He kept giving Charlotte free merchandise in exchange for her allowing him to touch, rub and ogle her feet! He’s not at all creepy in Hello Lonesome – just a little awkward – with a hilariously dry sense of humor that cracks me up throughout the entire film.
Speaking of the film – there is a press screening in LA THIS FRIDAY! OMG. And we’re now just 2 weeks away from the world premier on Friday June 18th in LA. It’s on baby… I am bugging out.
Oh – and by the way… I caught a little slack for my praise (laughing/crying) of SATC 2 – and while I totally stand by my enjoyment of the movie last night, I do think I might have been influenced slightly by the 3 glasses of champagne I had before it started (free pre-movie drinks – it was a promotional thing). I mean… I get emotional when I’m buzzed and catching up with my “girlfriends” of 12 years. But you know… that’s why any SATC episode/movie is enjoyable for me even if it’s not that great. It’s the characters… I’m attached – no matter what. And I’ll probably see #3 if there is one. And I’ll probably like it at least a little bit.
