This is a misleading and unrelated picture.
Lauren Graham is shooting a dog – wait for it – movie this month. Max is the story of an army dog returning from Afghanistan, who returns to the U.S. to be adopted by his handler’s family after a traumatic experience. He bonds with the family, in particular a 14 year old boy and together they help each others’ healing process.
It doesn’t sound like the kind of movie where the dog talks.
Lauren plays the boy’s mother, a woman who has lost her eldest son to war but now has to heal her youngest. That big chunk of marble, Thomas Haden Church (Sideways) also stars.
Shooting should be underway right now and there’s a casting call for stand-ins required June 2-5 in Asheville, North Carolina. More casting info on Tona B. Dahlquist Casting’s Facebook page. Max is due out in 2015 and this paragraph makes me feel awfully glitzy darling.
We’ll also be seeing Lauren later this year in the upcoming Merry Friggin’ Christmas. The cast includes Joel McHale (Community) and Robin Williams (the Robin Williams), which gets our tail wagging and pricks up a cautious ear. I wonder if it’ll be anything like Lauren’s previously raucous ‘Christmas’ movie, Bad Santa?
Bearing in mind Lauren isn’t a mom in real life, do you think Lauren Graham is oddly typecast as a mom now? And is that a bad thing? Even in the animated Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, she was a mom. What would you like to see Lauren in (…aside from the Gilmore Girls movie, smartass)? Back on Broadway? Gravity 2? A rom-com where she has to choose between Zac Efron, Harrison Ford and Matthew McConaughey? Ooh and Eddie Murphy?
