I love Keri Russell

Finally got around to seeing "Waitress." Liked the movie, loved her, loved Nathan Fillion. Anyone else a fan of hers? (I KNOW we're fans of Nathan.)She's so beatiful, and so warm.

I need a name for the *certain something* quality that Fillion has. Same thing I love about Martin Donovan. Something understated and so attractive. How would you describe it? Other than hot.

And re the movie, it's the first time I'd seen Adrienne Shelly and it was a little heartbreaking to watch it. She really was so charming and talented.

beaUtiful.

by Oh so late to partyreply 106/01/2010

I know what you mean about Martin Donovan (I will watch him in ANYTHING), but just don't feel the love for Fillion.

And I agree re: Russell.

by Oh so late to partyreply 206/01/2010

Nathan Fillion is charming.

Its called ugly.

I saw waitress a few months ago...cute film. Love Keri since her Felicity days, she is adorable.

by Oh so late to partyreply 506/01/2010

Keri - is so very...

adorable.

by Oh so late to partyreply 606/01/2010

I liked her better with longer hair.

still beautiful.

by Oh so late to partyreply 706/01/2010

R7 I still can't believe Felicity jumped the shark essentially because she cut her hair!

by Oh so late to partyreply 806/01/2010

I also love Keri Russell. She's beautiful and talented. She has greater range than she's generally given credit for; I saw her on stage in Neil LaBute's Fat Pig, and she was completely convincing as the bitchiest bitch imaginable. I hear that her co-stars on Felicity were crazy about her -- admired her hard work, modesty, good humor, and kindness. Friends of mine who work in a bookstore in Greenwich Village say that she's very polite when she comes in and even prettier in person.

by Oh so late to partyreply 906/01/2010

Felicity jumped the shark because of the writing, not Keri's hair. And actually, I liked her hair best when it had grown out a little, but was still short.

They changed the show in season 2,

by Oh so late to partyreply 1004/01/2012

I don't like Keri "pubic hair" Russell i want Scott Speedman, Ben from Felicity. I want to 69 with him butt we rim each others butthole rosebud tight hairy cherries

by Oh so late to partyreply 1104/01/2012

OP, you are my twin. Love her, ADORE Martin Donovan for a quality I can't quite describe.

by Oh so late to partyreply 1204/01/2012

The Upside of Anger is good.

by Oh so late to partyreply 1304/08/2012

Looking cute here.

by Oh so late to partyreply 1407/28/2012

She's got a new TV show, The Americas

by Oh so late to partyreply 1512/05/2012

Ive always loved Keri, Adrienne, and Martin - I've been a fan of both Martin's and Adrienne's since I saw them star together in Trust many years ago.

by Oh so late to partyreply 1612/05/2012

I just watched the show Pasadena this summer (found a bootleg DVD online.) Dana Delany is married to Martin Donovan, but has an affair with Nathan Fillion. Lucky bitch.

by Oh so late to partyreply 1712/05/2012

Andy Griffith was good in "Waitress," too.

by Oh so late to partyreply 1812/05/2012

Jeremey Sisto was great in Waitress too.

by Oh so late to partyreply 1912/05/2012

Waitress was a great movie. I remember there was early Oscar talk for Keri Russell but it never panned out. The scene where she finally tells Jeremy Sisto off was amazing. She's very appealing. I'll never understand Hollywood, where someone like her who has it all never really breaks out. Hopefully The Americans will work out well for her.

by Oh so late to partyreply 2012/05/2012

I've loved Keri since Felicity. I hope her new series goes well.

by Oh so late to partyreply 2112/05/2012

She looks stunning in the clips.

by Oh so late to partyreply 2201/06/2013

I don't get why she hasn't become a bigger star. She is naturally beautiful and a great actress. I loved her in Felicity and in Waitress.. Even watched the Mission Impossible sequel she was in just for her. I am not really a fan of Matthew Rhys but I'll check out her new show.

by Oh so late to partyreply 2301/06/2013

Maybe she didn't want to be bigger?

by Oh so late to partyreply 2401/07/2013

Now Keri is a stunning actress. Very naturally pretty.

by Oh so late to partyreply 2501/07/2013

Looks different with long, straight hair.

by Oh so late to partyreply 2601/10/2013

I recently worked with her, and she's a real doll. After Felicity, she wanted nothing to do with the industry and took some time off. Then met husband, had a kid, and decided to work again. She also has a movie coming out in Feb. called "Dark Skies".

by Oh so late to partyreply 2701/10/2013

R15 The AmericaNs.

by Oh so late to partyreply 2801/10/2013

Why R27? Was she pissed that everyone blamed Felicity's cancellation on her cutting her hair? I've been a fan since she was on the Mickey Mouse Club. I thought she and on again/off-again boyfriend (and The Voice finalist) Tony Lucca would eventually settle down together. They made a stunning looking couple. I'm really rooting for her to succeed.

by Oh so late to partyreply 2901/10/2013

"Was she pissed that everyone blamed Felicity's cancellation on her cutting her hair?"

R29 - That was the stupidest excuse ever. Her hair was long again by the Junior (third) year. The problem was that the scripts went bad.

by Oh so late to partyreply 3001/10/2013

Not the most flattering pic/outfit in R26 link!

It looks like a "Shelia in Accounting -Employee of the Month" award pic in the waiting area at Jiffy Lube.

by Oh so late to partyreply 3101/10/2013

[r29] It was over cutting her hair- she didn't see what the big deal was. Also she had been working since a kid and needed a break (Episodics are a soul crusher- usually 70-80 hour weeks). Her husband was a carpenter that she met at Barney's and they're a great couple.

by Oh so late to partyreply 3201/13/2013

Elder gays only like guys who are pencil thin like Olive Oyl and remind them of kids, cause they're pedophiles.

by Oh so late to partyreply 3301/13/2013

R33 = 18-year-old fatty with Mommy issues

At least that's the only way I can make sense of your post.

by Oh so late to partyreply 3401/13/2013

R32 - She cut her hair between the first and second seasons. The show lasted four seasons and she had long hair for the last two.

by Oh so late to partyreply 3501/13/2013

The Americas premiere

by Oh so late to partyreply 3601/27/2013

Anyone watch the premiere? I thought it was awesome!

by Oh so late to partyreply 3702/01/2013

She's badass on The Americans. Fantastic trim figure too. Time has been very kind to Keri.

by Oh so late to partyreply 3802/24/2013

Keri in a black wig for The Americans.

by Oh so late to partyreply 3903/20/2013

R6 made me laugh. I'll play.

Keri is so very,

talented.

by Oh so late to partyreply 4003/20/2013

More 90s R40

by Oh so late to partyreply 4103/21/2013

R41, the reference r40 is making is to an 80's commercial.

by Oh so late to partyreply 4203/21/2013

I loved Waitress, it had a hilarious swansong from Andy Griffith and Keri was great. So I was saddened she lost all momentum then, it looked like she would go on to great things as she did get a bit of buzz in a very strong year.

by Oh so late to partyreply 4303/21/2013

Keri Russell is hot to death when she is playing cold, bad ass bitches who love to fuck and kill for the mother country.

by Oh so late to partyreply 4403/21/2013

"Keri is so very" commercial from 1986

by Oh so late to partyreply 4503/21/2013

R43 Keri had at least one child since Waitress.

by Oh so late to partyreply 4603/21/2013

Stunning body!

by Oh so late to partyreply 4704/13/2013

I didn't know she had kids, but the last I heard of her after Waitress she had this sickly thin heroin chic look in a photoshoot? Presumably for a role.

by Oh so late to partyreply 4804/14/2013

She doesn't look sickly now.

by Oh so late to partyreply 4904/14/2013

Waitress is on Lifetime this morning, in about 15 minutes. I haven't seen it yet. It's one of the precious few movies on Lifetime that gets above a 2 star rating in the tv listings, it gets 3 stars.

by Oh so late to partyreply 5006/30/2013

Waitress is on now, last reminder bump.

by Oh so late to partyreply 5106/30/2013

Thanks r51. Watching.

by Oh so late to partyreply 5206/30/2013

Just saw her last week on a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie called "The Magic of Ordinary Days" with Skeet Ulrich and Mare Winningham. It was surprisingly well done and Keri was very good.

by Oh so late to partyreply 5306/30/2013

Watching Keri in Waitress, I agree she deserves more roles (if she wants them). Seems like she could have any role Amy Adams is up for.

by Oh so late to partyreply 5406/30/2013

She's kicked ass in The Americans.

by Oh so late to partyreply 5507/01/2013

Keri is such a good person. I sincerely doubt there is anyone in the industry who has had a bad experience with her. I don't think she has the same ambitions of someone like Amy Adams. She seems happy to live a quiet life and only work on projects that interest her.

by Oh so late to partyreply 5607/01/2013

R56 - You might be right. She's been careful with the projects she picks.

by Oh so late to partyreply 5707/01/2013

I really do like "Waitress".

I don't think her body is "stunning" (I don't equate "stunning" with "thin") but she has great shoulders.

by Oh so late to partyreply 5807/01/2013

She's thin, but she isn't scrawny. She looks like she could go a few rounds kick boxing.

by Oh so late to partyreply 5907/01/2013

She looks like she's lost weight.

by Oh so late to partyreply 6008/09/2013

Amy Adams certainly had a lot of ambition early on to break through at a relatively late stage (which is incredible given how young she looks), but if you see the Hollywood Reporter actress roundtable, she's quite withdrawn and doesn't like the atention. She's one that is about the work and clearly not a fame whore.

After Junebug (was there an earlier breakthrough?) she became hot property but like Keri her priorities seem to have changed after having kids. Amy is clearly not a supporting actress but she always gets the very best supporting parts. Keri could do with getting such parts. Michelle Monaghan is another underrated/used one.

by Oh so late to partyreply 6108/09/2013

Keri looks amazing in this pic.

by Oh so late to partyreply 6201/14/2014

Keri cheats on her husband, according to a blind item.

by Oh so late to partyreply 6301/14/2014

They divorced.

by Oh so late to partyreply 6401/14/2014

The new season of "The Americans" begins on 2/26.

by Oh so late to partyreply 6501/14/2014

I'm looking forward to it. Thanks R65

by Oh so late to partyreply 6601/14/2014

Rumor has it she's taken up with her TV husband from The Americans. He's beautiful.

by Oh so late to partyreply 6701/14/2014

R67 he's not gay?

by Oh so late to partyreply 6801/14/2014

Fuck no I don't like Keri Russell. Felicity ass.

by Oh so late to partyreply 6901/14/2014

@R68 he's not gay, he played a gay on brothers&sisters, that shit show

by Oh so late to partyreply 7001/14/2014

Keri has moved passed Felicity.

by Oh so late to partyreply 7101/14/2014

R70 LOL!

by Oh so late to partyreply 7301/15/2014

The Cheryl Hines marriage thread got me thinking about how great Waitress was - cast, story, everything.

by Oh so late to partyreply 7408/02/2014

I loved Waitress, it's one of the few flicks I have on DVD. That movie was a gem and Keri was great in the role. It was bittersweet going in upon first view that the script (and fellow actress) was murdered.

I had never heard of or seen Nathan Fillion before this movie, and became an instant fan. They had wonderful chemistry, but both of them are pretty talented actors. Cheryl Hines was actually pretty great as well.

Haven't seen her new series yet, but i'm aware of the affair with co-star and subsequent divorce. Shit happens.

by Oh so late to partyreply 7508/02/2014

Austenland is hilarious.

by Oh so late to partyreply 7608/02/2014

Actually I first saw Nathan in Waitress too. Soon after I watched Firefly.

by Oh so late to partyreply 7708/02/2014

I watched Austenland this weekend, based on [R76]'s reply. It was fun to watch and kept me interested the entire time. And i had a king-sized hangover to boot, so...

I place Austenland in the will-watch-again category.

by Oh so late to partyreply 7808/05/2014

Gorgeous.

by Oh so late to partyreply 7911/11/2014

Keri is a little too thin at r79's link.

by Oh so late to partyreply 8011/11/2014

maybe a little, but not unhealthily so.

by Oh so late to partyreply 8111/11/2014

I disagree, she looks way to thin in the face, she has never had sunken cheeks like that. Hopefully she was just posing for the camera. She has always been a beautiful woman, and I hope she isn't anorexic or whatever.
