This was originally posted in[livejournal.com profile] m_emerson_news . I generally don't repost articles about Michael Emerson in this journal, but I thought that, because his politics is mentioned, as well as his opposition to Proposition 8, which was unfortunately passed in California, it merits to be posted here. Michael Emerson, in my opinion, is a great actor, as well as a great soul. I also placed a video that Keith Olberman made regarding Proposition 8. I urge members of my f-list who agreed with Proposition 8 (banning gay marriage) to listen to Keith and, if you can, could you please show me the line in the Bible that says that marriage is between a man and a woman only.

When I read the Bible, I found so many other type of offensive passages. )

If you've ever wondered what it's like to be married to a mad man, just ask actress Carrie Preston! Of course, luckily for Preston, she's married to "Lost" star Michael Emerson and not his cutthroat character Ben Linus. She says his success has been one of her biggest highlights, but it hasn't come without its share of changes for the couple.

"Oh, it's so exciting. This is a role of a lifetime. It's really great to see how celebrated he is and how celebrated the show is. It's changed our lives, but mostly for the good. The only thing we have to weather is being apart and we've figured that out," notes Preston, who as of late has been filming Alan Ball's much-anticipated HBO series "True Blood."

"When Michael first started working on the show regularly, I was doing a show on Broadway and we didn't see each other very much, because he's in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. I had been wanting to take a break from doing plays and spend a little more time in L.A. anyway, so it worked out perfectly. Now, I sort of relocate to L.A. when he's in Honolulu -- that way it's a much easier commute," she explains.

"I've also had the benefit of being able to play his mom on the show. That was fun. I hope they bring me back and let me haunt him as my ghostly self."

As far as the downsides of fame, Preston admits there are some. "There's just more visibility for him, so there's a little less privacy. We haven't really had any bad experiences with fans, but they can be disruptive sometimes," she adds. "We'll be having dinner and there will be somebody holding up a cell phone recording us. It's like, 'Um, can you put that away?' Now, I just make him wear a hat and glasses as much as possible!"

Carrie Preston Is Reluctant Nanny in NYC Reading of ‘Esther Demsack’ Comedy

Kenneth Jones Playbill On-Line Mon Jan 28, 5:58 PM ET

Olivier Award nominee Stafford Arima (London's Ragtime, the regional Ace and Off-Broadway's Altar Boyz) directs the five-actor reading to feature Lynn Cohen ("Sex and the City," Lincoln Center's Ivanov, Off-Broadway's The Model Apartment), Noah Galvin (Ace), Carrie Preston (Broadway's Festen, The Tempest, TV's "Lost") as Esther, Claudia Shear (Dirty Blonde) and Robert Stanton (Broadway's The Coast of Utopia, Off-Broadway's Fuddy Meers, All in the Timing).

The presentation will be at 4 PM Jan. 29 at New York Theatre Workshop's 4th Street Theatre, 83 E. 4th Street between Second Avenue and Bowery.

According to notes from the playwright, "Esther Demsack [Preston] thinks she has finally arrived. Called to the office of prominent New York publisher David Brewster [Stanton], Esther is horrified to discover it's not her novel he wants - it's her, as governess to his 12-year-old son, Everette [Galvin], cute as a button, smart as a whip, and about as straight as Charles Nelson Reilly. Everette wants desperately to turn Esther into his very own Auntie Mame, and with the help of his crazy Lebanese neighbors [Shear and Cohen], he almost does. But Esther resists Everette's manic attempts at Mamedom, and digs deeper to find the dark secret that is haunting him and the entire Brewster family."

Finnegan's other plays include Any Solid Color Other Than Black (two-time Eugene O'Neill Theater Center National Playwrights Conference semi-finalist, MCC Theater reading); Begin Measured Mile; At the End; The Dander of Female Poplars, or One Queens Parade; and Little Boy Lost.

HBO Picks Up New Alan Ball Series "True Blood" with Trammell, Paquin and Preston

By Andrew Gans
and Ernio Hernandez
13 Aug 2007

HBO has picked up "True Blood," the new vampire series created by playwright and screenwriter Alan Ball, according to Variety.

Ball — whose play, All That I Will Ever Be, was seen at New York Theatre Workshop last season — had much success with his previous HBO series, "Six Feet Under."

His new work, based on the novel series "Southern Vampire" by Charlaine Harris, is set in a small town in Louisiana. The program, according to the industry paper, "follows the world of vampires, who are able to co-exist with humans by drinking a Japanese-manufactured synthetic blood. The show contains a dose of humor alongside the horror."

Ball wrote and directed the series pilot, which features Anna Paquin, Ryan Kwanten, Sam Trammell, Stephen Moyer, Brook Kerr, Carrie Preston and Michael Raymond-James. No air date has been announced, although Ball has already written several additional episodes. Production is expected to begin some time this fall.

Paquin will play a waitress named Sookie Stackhouse, who falls for a vampire played by Moyer.

Creator Ball will produce "True Blood" with HBO.

Prior to achieving Hollywood fame as the screenwriter of the Oscar-winning "American Beauty," Ball was an Off-Broadway playwright. His most notable credit was Five Women Wearing the Same Dress, which played at MCC Theatre in 1993. The cast included Allison Janney.
