Life & Entertainment
The average TV binge viewer is indulging in catch-up. When Anna Gunn dove headlong into the British crime drama “Broadchurch,” it was homework. Gunn stars as police Detective Ellie Miller in Fox’s “Gracepoint,” an adaptation of the moodily gripping U.K. series that’s been uprooted from a seaside English town to a Northern California one that’s more scenic but no less fraught with pain. The actress, who won two Emmy Awards for “Breaking Bad,” is part of the makeover, one that stopped short of swapping out leading man David Tennant as a tough but troubled police detective.
Lena Dunham launches tour for book of adult essays
There was a baby in the audience and Lena Dunham wondered why. “This is not an appropriate place for babies,” she said Tuesday night as she launched the tour for one of the season’s most anticipated books, “Not That Kind of Girl,” a collection of adults-only, personal essays. Dunham, 28, appeared before hundreds of fans at the Barnes & Noble in Manhattan’s Union Square. She'll be in Chicago on Oct. 6.
Prince is back! (And all over the place)
After an unparalleled run of pop brilliance that lasted from 1979 to 1992, we’ve learned to adjust our expectations for new Prince albums. He released two separate albums this week. The first is an all-over-the-place romp called “Art Official Age,” while the other, “PlectrumElectrum,” finds him marching his new band, 3rdEyeGirl, through a sequence of airtight rock riffs.
Actress Mia Farrow reveals her motto: ‘I’m trying’
Acting on Broadway is hardly a vacation, but if you’re Mia Farrow, it just might be. Her day job these days, after all, is speaking out about genocide and atrocities. Farrow, 69, has taken a break from international horrors to return to Broadway for the first time in 16 years to perform in A.R. Gurney’s play “Love Letters,” in which two would-be lovers read aloud letters exchanged over a lifetime.
