Um, have any of you actually seen her work? She's been absolutely terrific on The Good Wife.
She's a terribly homely girl.
She is good on the Good Wife. But, it's a pretty one-note small roll
It keeps her out of the house and off my sofa.
that sculpting thing looks like crap R16
And Mammie what kind of name is that?
Her real name is Mary Willa. Meryl (real name Mary Louise) was pregnant with her when she won her Oscar for Sophie's Choice. The only other famous Mamie is Mamie Eisenhower. The rich WASPS love shortening their names, of giving each other cute nicknames.
R22, Uh, EXCUSE ME???
I think she will be excellent in that pilot based on her mother's life, "First Cunt."
Meryl didn't need a 3rd Oscar to feel special. All she has to do is go home and the losers around her remind the woman how great she is.
Mamie is at least ugly in her own way. Grace looks like a deformed less attractive M.

She should count her lucky chickens
People who think Meryl is some Little Miss Perfect only need to look at her ugly children and loser husband to feel better about themselves.
Normally I'd consider a network show one step above premium cable, but I think CW is one step below basic cable. Nonetheless, good luck dear. I'm sure you'll find success eventually. Best to Mummy.
SO much for that film career, bitch!
Rumor Willis, Star.
Lily Rabe is far more talented than Mamie.
Why don't the Gummer girls have lips? Nary a one of them have lips. Freaks me out it does.
[quote]I half-remember hearing that Meryl bought all three of her kids Manhattan apartments.
The kids all live in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Yes, in the same building.
M had the most beautiful townhouse on the block I used to live on. I saw her once on hands and knees tending to the front garden.
Mamie has been in a lot of meaningless movies. She hasn't been in a blockbuster so it's hard to tell if she has much talent. I am sick of nepotism as much as the next person, but if given the right role she might prove herself. She was on the Jimmy Kimmel show . She has a very cute personality. I don't think it's fair that she gets more of a chance than other actresses. Her brother Henry and sister Grace are also living life on the nepotims band wagon.
Lily Rabe is her biggest competition. Poor lipless Mamie just gets offered up Lily's leftovers because her mother is Saint Meryl of Streep.
How long will it be til Weinstein starts campaigning for Mammy Gumby to get an Oscar over Viola Davis?
Why didn't they cast Mamie in the lead for Hunger Games?
why single them out for Nepotism?
Hollywood is almost nothing but:
Nic Cage, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston, Sigourney Weaver, Michael Douglas, Jane, Peter & Bridget Fonda, Ilena Douglas, Melissa Rivers, Michael Douglas, Gwyneth Paltrow, George Clooney, Sofia Coppola, etc.
Mamie is a worthy heir to a major icon of stage and screen...
She'd be perfect playing a middle age career woman or the matriarch of a political family...if she weren't only 29. What a hag.
Oh, right, and Lily Rabe's connections had NOTHING to do with getting her foot in the door.
I think she looks cute. Hollywood isn't exactly full of god-like beauties, male or female.
Somebody must have swapped Glenn and Meryl's babies at the hospital, because Mamie looks like she came right out of Glenn Close.
Mammy Gumby does look like Glenn.
Mamie would be very pretty if she got her nose done. It's probably difficult for her since Meryl is always saying she is against plastic surgery. Meryl had a luminous beauty when she was Mamie's age and she could make even a small part interesting. Mamie's acting is adequate but I haven't seen anything stellar.
I've seen Mamie in THE GOOD WIFE and the not especially great Bway revival of DANGEROUS LIAISONS and... she's fine. Not untalented. But there's nothing riveting about her.
She is adequate but will never be a star.
What's the middle one named? The one who only does stage?
Why doesn't Louisa look like anyone else in the family?
She looks just like Meryl.
she is hideous and cannot act
[quote]How long will it be til Weinstein starts campaigning for Mammy Gumby to get an Oscar over Viola Davis
How is Mamie at doin' snot bubbles?
Yeah, I didn't think so.
Of course she got a guest spot on the Bic C. Meryl is friends with Laura Linney.
Don Gummer is renowned in the art world, and makes beautiful, huge, metal sculptures. He started building up a reputation way back when Meryl was still in Drama School at Yale. Sure, he wouldn't make film star levels of money, but art can command quite a price today, and even his smaller sketches sell for $20,000 and up. Yes, I've been at his exhibitions and like his work. He's a star in his own field.
The Lily Rabe troll needs to give it a rest.
Meryl went to Yale. I believe Mamie went to...Northwestern.
Not the same thing.
r63 - Did you see his exhibit about 4 years ago when he maller wood sculptures in wood of famous homes and buildings? His Falling Water was amazing. I have one of his paintings. Don't know if it's worth 20 grand, but I like it!
She has Meryls nose and jaw and Glenns eyes!!!
How is it possible?!?
Does Glenn know that Meryl has her child?
[quote]The Lily Rabe troll needs to give it a rest.
Seems like good old fashioned silliness more than anything.
She was good in The Good Wife.
She has talent and presence.
"I half-remember hearing that Meryl bought all three of her kids Manhattan apartments"
She has 4 kids. (Everyone always forgets the boy.)
R71, you know nothing! She gave up the boy. Dustin Hoffman is raising him.
Why would she name her Mamie? Gummer's not the greatest last name either.
[R66] - I did, and I liked it very much! I also thought his 9/11 memorial competition entry was really interesting. He didn't win though.
I was watching an episode of Emily Owens and her brother's song "Stop the Train" was playing in the background. I guess Mamie had to plug her brother. Mamie is a product of nepotism and she is becoming a nepotist.
I will NEVER stop striving to make my children happen, R75.
you shouldn't impersonate other people.
Mamie isn't her real name. Her name is Mary Willa.
Hatred of women, hatred of women, you all deeply need therapy for your absurd and destructive hatred of women.
As for Don Gummer, I bet he's a pothead. What do you think?
Why is Mamie agreeing to do this to herself again? Does the CW have a hold on her?
It's crazy how she has to take whatever might give her the "most visibility", even if so embarrassing. If she were an aspiring actress with no rich relatives, it wouldn't seem as crazy. But M could have paid for her schooling to be an actual doctor in the meantime or something. And she would've gotten some Method in for these two recent CW series attempts.
Mamie's not a bad actress. She's def more capable than the former super models who try to pass for actors. Her problem is that she is quite hard on the eyes. She has M's worst features, and none of her good ones.
First Cut was the original title for the Emily Owens show. This is a bumped old thread, r81, she hasn't signed up for a new CW series.
Oh, thank god. No one should appear that desperate.
I never watched this show.
Did she ever get to fuck the Smallville Green Arrow?
Mamie finally got into a descent movie ----Side Effects. Maybe her luck will change as she has been in so many b movies and cancelled t.v. shows.
she is more of a social butterfly than an actress. She constantly wants attention.
Mamie Gummer sounds like a hausfrau's name.
Meryl Streep is always so annoyingly perfect, it is funny to see how badly her kids are failing. I feel sorry for the poor kids, but it serves her right. At least the four kids can be losers together.
Mamie is friends with Sarah Paulson. Can't imagine why, really.
My God, she's the new Lauren Graham! Networks are intent at throwing a never-ending array of milquetoast drama pilots her way until something - anything - sticks.
What's the name of the other one? She was pretty good on The Newsroom (less so on SMASH... but she had even stupider writing to deal with than poor Kat McPhee). Natural, not wooden, warm screen presence. She has potential.
Mamie on the other hand can go away.
R93 must be one of those people that thinks skinny and blonde automatically equals attractive.
The rest of us beg to differ.
This is an old thread. All Mamie's shows have been cancelled and her marriage has failed. At least we will be able to get her health insurance come January.
[quote] Mamie finally got into a descent movie ----Side Effects
She was in the movie 5 minutes
Do you think they cast her with the bizarre hope that she will be able to convince her mother to do a guest spot or something. Or, did her mother make a side deal that she would do a guest spot if they cast her daughter (with or without the daughter's knowledge).
To quote Miss Crawford, they did it for the publicity.
