She‘s the female lead in Sin Bin. So, what are her favorite movies?
My failure to include more posts about Emily Meade, the female lead of Sin Bin, is borderline criminal. A couple of people on-set mentioned this last week, and I tried to cover for myself by claiming that our schedules haven’t meshed. When she was shooting, I wasn’t around.
That’s a lousy excuse.
I think you haven’t seen much of Emily—beside a few snapshots—because I’m kind of intimated by her. She is about to explode. Not literally, of course. I mean, her career is about to explode.
Emily will soon be profiled in glossy men’s magazines, where some gushing magazine writer will talk about what she ate for lunch at a hotel restaurant in Manhattan, probably on the Lower East Side, and how she has both an indie vibe and a mainstream appeal.
Trust me, it’ll happen.
She’s in the new Joel Schumacher film, Twelve, which opens July 2. She appears in the new Wes Craven movie, My Soul to Take, out October 29; she’s in two episodes of “Boardwalk Empire,” the upcoming HBO/Martin Scorcese show. And she’s in a couple of indie films, one of which is Burning Palms, a film written and directed by Christopher Landon, the same guy who wrote the movie Disturbia.
And she’s appeared in two episodes of Law and fucking Order.
I’ll let Emily take it from here.
Hey Chicagoans, did you see any celebrities this weekend? The city was crawling with them—OK, maybe that’s an overstatement. But the cast of Sin Bin hit the town Saturday night.
Louis Arroyave, the Chicago Tribune‘s man about town, documented a sliver of the action. In today’s Red Eye, which is a free commuter daily published by the Tribune, Arroyave noted: “Ben McKenzie was spotted at Rockit Bar & Grill in River North and Benny’s Chop House on Saturday. The former ‘OC’ star was in town shooting the film Sin Bin.”
True, but McKenzie wasn’t alone.
At Rockit, which is owned by Sin Bin cast member Billy Dec, McKenzie was joined by his co-stars on the film: Gillian Jacobs (star of TV show “Community”) and Michael Seater, plus Sin Bin director Billy Federighi (a Chicagoan), writer Chris Storer (another Chicagoan), costume designer Elie Kaya (a Chicago resident), and Sin Bin producer Gary Giudice.
After Rockit, Gillian headed to the airport, while the rest of the Sin Bin-ers made their way to Lucky Strike bowling alley, where they were joined by more cast members: Bo Burnham, Emily Meade, Brenda Marie King, and Gabe Notarangelo, and the film’s wardrobe supervisor, Marissa Craig.
At Lucky Strike, Michael Seater signed some autographs and posed for photos.
Then they all went to Benny’s Chop House, where Sin Bin executive producer Dante Federighi met up with the cast and crew.
Sounds like it was one enchanting evening.
