Joy In Directing and Reprising A Fan-Favorite Role On 'The Good Wife'
Jesse Livingston: The Good Wife has been getting quite a bit of praise, not to mention winning a Peabody Award and multiple Emmys – and CBS has renewed it for a fourth season. When you joined the cast in Season One, did you already know the show was going to be a hit, or did you have a strong feeling about it?
Carrie Preston: I was a fan of it from day one. I know Julianna Margulies – we did a play together about seven years ago. So, she was a friend, and I started watching it for her. I liked it immediately. I had wanted and hoped to go on the show in some capacity. At the end of the first season, when they asked me to play this incredible role, I was really excited. At that point, the show had found its audience and was turning into a hit. I didn't do any of the second season at all, so I thought, “All right, that was it. I had a great time. I played a fun part," and then when they came back and asked me to do those episodes last season, I was just thrilled.
JL: Your character Elsbeth Tascioni has been described as “quirky.” Do you see her that way, or would you use a different word to describe her?
CP: I guess maybe I would use the word “dizzy.” I would say that she's brilliant; her mind works very quickly – like quicksilver – and her mouth and her body are always trying to keep up with her mind. That's what makes her so fun to play.
JL: Do you know yet if Elsbeth will be returning for Season Four?
CP: Yes, actually I'm shooting right now. I'm going to be doing three episodes, I think.
JL: You and your husband Michael [Emerson] have appeared in several projects together. You played his mother on Lost and his ex-fiance on Person of Interest. Plus, you were both in Straight-Jacket; Ready? OK!; and a stage production of A. R. Gurney's Love Letters, if I'm not mistaken?
CP: We did, yeah. That was just a one-off benefit reading of Love Letters. But we met doing a production of Hamleteighteen years ago at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. Since then we've done a production of Measure for Measure, another totally different production of Hamlet, an independent film called The Journey – so, we've done a lot of things together over the years. Plus, I've just recently done a couple more episodes of Person of Interest.
JL: It sounds like the two of you try to work together as much as possible?
CP: If it works out, yeah. A lot of times, it's not up to us – you know, it's up to whoever is producing and directing. But we enjoy it very much. I have a production company, and I've put him in movies that I've produced or directed. [laughs] I like to take advantage of his talents and his visibility. More
Another interview with Carrie in it's entirety at CWAtlanta  here's a bit-
Which do you enjoy more, directing or acting?I can’t really say I enjoy one or the other more. I think that both complement each other. Acting is my first love, but directing is very exciting that allows me to exercise all my creative muscles.
So have you picked anything out for next project to direct?
I do have a couple of things, there’s a project that I am attached to now called “Hope and Salvation,” a southern story and I am hoping that we are going to be able to get that off the ground. And my producing partners are working on something else that we are in development on. And then I have a web series that I have been writing and starring in that will hopefully premiere in the summer
Aw, what a good guy-

Joe Manganiello talks shooting David Ayer's gritty 'Ten' (and why it's already cut down on those body roll requests) Interview from EW (more at the link)-
With Channing Tatum being named People‘s Sexiest Man Alive, Magic Mike is back on the brain. But Joe Manganiello is confident that if fans see him now (pictured, via Twitter), as he shoots David Ayer’s Ten in Atlanta with Arnold Schwarzenegger, they would not ask him to do one of his famous body rolls. “Now I have a huge Unabomber beard, with cornrows and full-sleeve tattoos, and I’ve put on probably like 20 pounds. I look like a biker/murderer, which is really what I’m playing,” he tells EW. “So the body roll asks have subsided. People come up to me now, and they’re like, ‘Hey, I went to go get my car fixed and I’m pretty sure that they screwed me over. Can you go and talk to these people for me?’ That’s my request now. I’m sure after this movie comes out, people are gonna ask me to start killing people for money. Which I guess is a good thing. I’m an actor, so I’m supposed to change.”
In the film, he plays Grinder, a member of a task force the DEA has put together to fight against the Mexican cartels. “I’ve spent the past four months training with guys who do it for a living. That’s complete with ridealongs with narcotics officers in South Central, where, like, I saw some stuff go down. I’ve been training with a task force that goes around the world training SWAT teams how to sweep buildings, which is amazing. I’ve been out on the shooting range firing fully automatic weapons with the sheriff’s department. I’ve trained MMA stand-up and ground fighting, which is stuff that I’ve done before,” he says. “My character’s deep undercover within a biker gang. I got to design my own biker cut. I helped design the tattoos that I’m covered in. My character’s part Native American, so there’s a skull in a headdress on one arm. He was also a former Marine, so there’s a couple different takes on that. Basically, his job is to rid the planet of souls that shouldn’t be here. So the tattoos are death-themed. I’ve got a rattle snake skeleton on one forearm.”
