The Talk: Joan Rivers Diary of a Mad Diva
Joan Rivers will be by The Talk to discuss her book Diary of a Mad Diva, which has pushed quite a few buttons in its unflinching joke material. Joan Rivers recently got upset during a CNN interview where the interviewer asked her a number of questions about pushing buttons, apparently because she felt like she was being attacked. It was a rare moment of unprofessionalism in Joan Rivers’ long comedic career and a bit of an odd move considering how often she attacks other celebrities with her jokes. We’ll have to see what she says about it on July 11, 2014.
The Talk: Famke Janssen Hemlock Grove
Famke Janssen has had a very successful career. So successful, in fact, that while you might not remember her name, you certainly remember her roles. She played Xenia Onatopp, the cutthroat assassin from Goldeneye. If you had a childhood anywhere near the mid-nineties, you know that name well from playing the N64 version of Goldeneye. Your only female friend probably played as either Natalya or Xenia in multiplayer as you all guzzled down Capri Suns and accused each other of either screen watching or cheating by using Oddjob, who was so short he was hard to shoot.
But I digress. Famke Janssen was also Jean Grey/Phoenix in the X-Men series, a role that she’s reprised twice in the last few years, despite the character dying about five movies ago. Both Jean Grey and Xenia are very iconic, which makes me excited to see her in the Netflix original series Hemlock Grove, whose second season recently came out on Netflix.
