Mamie Gummer Lands The Lead In CW Drama Pilot ‘First Cut’
|by V||reply 98||09/25/2013|
None of Streep's girls proved to have any talent, but that doesn't stop idiot producers from casting them.
|by V||reply 1||03/05/2012|
Gummer can be good in small roles. As a lead, though?
|by V||reply 2||03/05/2012|
This show is a rip-off of Grey's Anatomy, according to ABC.
Basically a new intern realizes her hospital environment is just like high school
|by V||reply 3||03/05/2012|
You'd think 3 Oscars could buy a better network than CW. But when you look like Mamie there's only so much you can do, I suppose.
|by V||reply 4||03/06/2012|
What the hell kind of name is 'Mamie Gummer?'
|by V||reply 5||03/06/2012|
OP, you mean she was handed the lead.
Neither she nor her equally untalented husband have to audition thanks to Mommie Dearest.
|by V||reply 6||03/06/2012|
Thing is, there's so many good examples of nepotism and genuinely talented showbiz brats that the bad ones actually stick out more. I had no idea Meryl's spawn were actors, baaad move there or what?
|by V||reply 7||03/06/2012|
What exactly does Meryl's husband do for a living, if anything? Has he ever really worked?
|by V||reply 8||03/06/2012|
Meryl's husband is a sculptor. Which means he lives off Meryl's income.
|by V||reply 9||03/06/2012|
He's a sculptor all right. He makes busts out of Meryl's money.
|by V||reply 10||03/06/2012|
Meryl's husband Don is actually a very renowned sculptor and artist who's done some beautiful work. He's also a very nice guy. Yes, I do know him.
|by V||reply 11||03/06/2012|
Oh please! He probably puts "Meryl Streep's husband!" in parentheses on all his works.
|by V||reply 12||03/06/2012|
What are you implying R9???
|by V||reply 13||03/06/2012|
So, Don Gummer is a "sculptor" in the same way Ed Schlossberg is a "visual artist." Got it, thanks.
|by V||reply 14||03/06/2012|
Mamie Gummer? Who is this hussy?
|by V||reply 15||03/06/2012|
It's okay, I guess
|by V||reply 16||03/06/2012|
Um, have any of you actually seen her work? She's been absolutely terrific on The Good Wife.
|by V||reply 17||03/06/2012|
She's a terribly homely girl.
|by V||reply 18||03/06/2012|
She is good on the Good Wife. But, it's a pretty one-note small roll
|by V||reply 19||03/06/2012|
It keeps her out of the house and off my sofa.
|by V||reply 20||03/06/2012|
that sculpting thing looks like crap R16
And Mammie what kind of name is that?
|by V||reply 21||03/06/2012|
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.
|by V||reply 22||03/06/2012|
R22, Uh, EXCUSE ME???
|by V||reply 23||03/06/2012|
I think she will be excellent in that pilot based on her mother's life, "First Cunt."
|by V||reply 24||03/06/2012|
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.
|by V||reply 25||03/06/2012|
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.
|by V||reply 28||03/06/2012|
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.
|by V||reply 29||03/07/2012|
SO much for that film career, bitch!
|by V||reply 30||03/07/2012|
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.
|by V||reply 31||03/07/2012|
Just like Ashley Simpson, she would look 100% better with a nose job. She would be very pretty with a different nose
|by V||reply 32||03/07/2012|
I thought Ashley Simpson's old nose was sexy. With the new one she looks generic.
I am afraid it would take more than a nose job to make Mamie pretty.
|by V||reply 33||03/07/2012|
Mammie looks like a rodent
|by V||reply 34||03/07/2012|
As soon as M found out she was pregnant with Mamie I said "get me a knitting needle! Flush it down the pan!"
|by V||reply 35||03/07/2012|
The pilot is being shot in Vancouver. I wonder if the series will be. I can't imagine Mamma Meryl would be happy about that.
|by V||reply 36||03/07/2012|
I half-remember hearing that Meryl bought all three of her kids Manhattan apartments. That must be nice, indeed. I would give my left nut for a free apt. in Manhattan.
|by V||reply 37||03/08/2012|
BUT the apartments are all in the same building so mama can keep an eye on things.
|by V||reply 38||03/08/2012|
I don't think Mamie is hideous, but she is very plain. That pilot synopsis sounds like a fail right out of the gate, though, and her name is truly terrible.
|by V||reply 39||03/08/2012|
Mamie Gummer looks a lot like her mother. She's pretty when she dresses up and not look so homely.
|by V||reply 40||03/08/2012|
[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.
|by V||reply 41||03/08/2012|
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.
|by V||reply 42||03/08/2012|
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.
|by V||reply 43||03/25/2012|
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...
|by V||reply 48||03/25/2012|
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.
|by V||reply 49||03/25/2012|
Oh, right, and Lily Rabe's connections had NOTHING to do with getting her foot in the door.
|by V||reply 50||03/25/2012|
I think she looks cute. Hollywood isn't exactly full of god-like beauties, male or female.
|by V||reply 51||03/25/2012|
Somebody must have swapped Glenn and Meryl's babies at the hospital, because Mamie looks like she came right out of Glenn Close.
|by V||reply 52||03/25/2012|
Mammy Gumby does look like Glenn.
|by V||reply 53||03/25/2012|
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.
|by V||reply 54||03/25/2012|
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?

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.

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 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.

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.

As for Don Gummer, I bet he's a pothead. What do you think?
|by V||reply 80||12/22/2012|
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.
|by V||reply 81||12/22/2012|
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.
|by V||reply 82||12/22/2012|
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.

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.

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.

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).
