Sandra Oh should thank her for turning it down.

She would have sucked in the role.

It’s like a lie.

I like Maya Rudolph but there's no way she could have pulled off the obsession/sexual chemistry with Jodie Comer like Sandra Oh did.

Maya Rudolph is one of those actors where you think, "Why are they famous and successful?"
She's not funny. Or, even amusing.
And...to be kind....on the 'plain' side of the fence.
She seems like a lovely woman but again...don't quite get the success.

Maya and Tiffany Haddish should team up for a comedy series. That'd be HIGHlarious!

I find her hysterical

R4, She has her moments. She does a dam good Queen Bey impersonation. Sometimes being an agreeable pleasant person goes a long way in this industry.

Which role, she’s neither British or Asian?

“But there was no way I was about to move to Europe for months. Like, how?” Rudolph said in the interview.”
1) No ambition from these young people today. I would have walked on burning coals for Mr. Mayer.
2) In my day we didn’t kiss and tell about parts we turned down.

I watched her throughout her SNL stint. She's very talented and has great comic timing.
Sandra Oh made the role her own, but had Rudolph taken it, it would have kicked her career up to the next level, just like it did for Oh. She wouldn't have been offered the role unless she would have nailed it.
It was kind tacky of the Hollywood Reporter to bring it up, though?

she's funny when playing other dead-eyed celebs like Beyoncé and Donatella Versace, but her Whitney Houston, Liza and Oprah sucked. I still don't understand her alleged Dionne Warwick on the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, or that horrid attempt a variety show.
She doesn't seem all that pleasant or agreeable, I bet she sings Fiona Apple songs to PT Anderson whenever she's pissed at him.

R9, she has four children and her husband is a huge L.A.-based director. So, that played a role in her not moving to Europe.
Also, it was the Hollywood Reporter who brought it up.

R11, this was funny. Also, her Whitney wasn't accurate, but, I found it funny at the time. Now, it would be a bit too hard to watch.
She was great as Jodi Dietz (cohost of The Bronx Beat with Amy Poehler). Also, I love her in Bridesmaids and she was good in Away We Go.

With actresses, turning down projects is often just about location. A movie is a short commitment--Sometimes even just a few days. A TV show can go on forever and no matter how successful it is, a star can rarely get it moved to their home city.

R12 I also had four children…but I selected them personally.

Does everyone know her mother, singer Minnie Riperton.? Her big song was Loving You and she sings Maya, Maya, Maya in the chorus...I always hear that when I see her. She has a great voice and range, she was childhood friends with Paltrow. Guess she’s always been connected. I like her in some parts, charming and funny.

One of the most beautiful songs ever recorded.

I don't find her funny either but she seems like a pleasant person.

We should thank her. Terrible actress. How does she get jobs?

Thank God. I have nothing against Maya but Sandra Oh is just better at acting.

Why doesn’t she ever star in one of her husband’s films? That’s very unusual for an actress married to a director.

She's talented, but if she and Wiig, Pohler, Fey and McKinnon went away, I'd be fine.

I only find her occasionally funny but she was good in Away We Go. Plus, she's the bane of Fiona Apple's existance, so I like her just fine.
