James McAvoy talks Kat Dennings
Originals Projects The Sandman

Interviewed by Daryl Austin of Newsweek for an article published to the website today, James McAvoy talked of The Sandman, Neil Gaiman’s dark magic, Dirk Maggs’s magistral sound design and the unexpected casting choice that was our Miss Dennings.

And while Morpheus doesn’t always get along with the other members of The Endless, McAvoy explained that Dream and Death are particularly close. “They get along very, very well,” he said. Death is played by Dennings, someone McAvoy said was unexpected in the role. “When you think of Death, you don’t think of Kat with her brilliant throwaway delivery,” he explained, “but she nailed it and once you hear her, you know how perfect for the part she is.” He said Dennings portraying Death is just another example of the brilliantly unexpected world Gaiman and Maggs created for the audio adaptation of the series.

Project updates round-up
Dollface Originals Projects WandaVision

The Hollywood Critics Association TV Awards, which took place last Sunday, scored WandaVision two awards: the show won in the “Best Limited Series, Anthology Series, or Live Action TV Movie” category and, while Kat did not win the “Best Supporting Actress for a Limited Series, Anthology Series or Live Action TV Movie” award for which she was nominated, we are pleased to see it in the very good hands of co-star Kathryn Hahn.

Dollface has seemingly wrapped filming, as Kat posted a selfie to her Instagram captioned “she’s retired”. Last week, KABCRadio’s Gurvey’s Law show chatted with actress Fran Drescher, thus teasing her participation in the second season of Hulu’s show. Kat had previously expressed her wish of bringing Drescher to the show for the role of Jules’s mother. Unfortunately, the episode is not available online.

Finally, as for the upcoming The Sandman, Audible has released the official trailer for the second act, featuring the voice talent of James McAvoy as Morpheus, to premiere next month. Pre-order is available.

Our heartfelt congratulations to the entire WandaVision team. The show’s success would not be possible without all intervening parts, including our Kat who, in spite of not getting a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie, deserves praise for her work on the show.

As for Dollface, Lilly Singh is reported to join Kat, Brenda Song, Shay Mitchell and Esther Povitsky for season two, which is currently under production. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Singh will play Liv, a queer bar owner with a confident sense of humor, who explores both a relationship and a business venture with Stella (Shay Mitchell).” The season is reported to premiere in early 2022.

The story of Kat’s haunted house
Originals

On their episode of April 8th, the ladies of The Crooked Key Podcast shared stories from their listeners about haunted attics and basements. As a bonus, they also talked of a story Kat has shared recently with Jimmy Kimmel about growing up in a haunted house.

Unsurprisingly, she enjoyed it — back in 2014, talking to Conan O’Brien, Kat revealed her childhood obsession with The Addams Family, particularly with the character Wednesday, so of course growing up in a historical society certified house in Pennsylvania could be nothing but a goth blast!

Kat talked a bit more extensively about the house in particular when being interviewed by Alex McLevy of AV Club. Built in 1694, the building was used as a port house and frequented by William Penn himself. And the Litwack family got acquainted with routinary horror movie tropes. “It sounds so crazy, but I swear—you could ask my father, who is 89 who saw some shit. We all saw some shit”, Kat said back in May 2018.

“It’s not unpleasant. It didn’t feel scary. It just felt like—the air felt thick and electric-y. You know what I mean? Like there were a thousand dead people looking in your soul or something”, she said in the same article. We guess pretending you’re Wednesday Addams and sleeping with your arms crossed is only natural if you’re living in a historical house with flickering lights as a kid. We would have acted the same way.

Listen to The Crooked Key Podcast and support other fans of Miss Dennings.

Mark Worthington talks Kat Dennings
Originals

In a recent interview with GRAZIA, WandaVision’s design producer Marth Worthington talked about the process of designing the sets for the show’s different eras, in the middle of a pandemic to boot!, and what we would expect to see if WandaVision had gotten its own COVID-19 scenario.

Asked what it was like working with actresses Elizabeth Olsen and Kat Dennings, Worthington replied:

They were fantastic. Incredible actors as you can see the range in this. I mean, not that you didn’t see it before. You did, obviously, the both of them. But what a pleasure. They’re both lovely and so positive and so complimentary of the sets. They would come onto the sets and be very like, ‘Oh my God this feels totally like this sitcom!’ so it was gratifying that our scenery was able to help them provide energy for their performances.

IS THAT A GENUINE SMILE COMING OUT OF MY FACE?! IT IS THE SMILE OF SOMEONE WHO FINALLY HOODWINKED HER FAVORITE BEVERAGE INTO SPONSORING HER…IT’S SPINDRIFT SPARKLING WATER, BABY. Never in my life have I approached a brand ASKING to partner with them out of sheer adoration. As a passionate (yet not remotely professional) gardener, I’ve become obsessed with only allowing REAL FRUIT (not “natural flavor” – actual fruit) into my consumables. Once I realized that everything I was drinking was “flavored”, I went on the hunt. I discovered @drinkspindrift which is the FIRST sparkling water made with 100% ONLY REAL SQUEEZED FRUIT and I became an absolute psycho, slowly converting my friends and family to the Drifter lifestyle. I may be part Spindrift at this point, as it is actually the only water I drink. Anyway. More to come. #realfruittastesbetter#spindriftpartner
