Comedy Central aired this week the episode which Winona guest starred, Philadelphia. You can watch now the clip, plus screen captures added to the gallery.
Winona Ryder will embark on her â€œlargest TV commitment to date,â€ joining the Walking Deadâ€˜s Jon Bernthal and Alfred Molina for the new HBO miniseries Show Me A Hero, created by The Wireâ€˜s David Simon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The six-hour show is based on Lisa Belkinâ€™s eponymous nonfiction book, which was billed as a â€œA Tale of Murder, Suicide, Race, and Redemptionâ€ when it was published in 1999. The protagonist of Show Me A Hero is Nick Wasicsko (Oscar Issac), the mayor of Yonkers, New York in the late 1980s who, to the detriment of his political career, was court-ordered to build 200 units of low-income public housing in a more upscale, whiter side of town. Ryder will play Vinni Restiano, a Yonkers councilwoman who loses her seat after her housing vote.
Ryder also joins actress Catherine Keener, who will portray Mary Dorman, an East Yonkers homeowner who comes to a â€œremarkable realizationâ€ of where to build the units. Bernthal will portray Michael H. Sussman, a top NAACP lawyer and Molina will play councilman Henry J. â€œHankâ€ Spallone, an anti-housing advocate and former NYPD detective from the Bronx.
Next week’s episode titled “Philadelphia” features the story of Benedict Arnold and Peggy Shippen, played by Chris Parnell and Winona Ryder. Tune in for the full episode on August 19.
The images of Rag & Bone‘s newest campaign starring Winona Ryder was finally released, and they’re amazing! Check it:
Winona Ryder is the face of Rag & Boneâ€™s fall campaign, chosen for her â€œbeautiful, timeless quality,â€ said Marcus Wainwright, managing partner of Rag & Bone. â€œTo us, Winona Ryder is a bona-fide icon. One of the things that makes her so cool is that although she has this incredible career, she isnâ€™t interested in being a movie star.â€
Glen Luchford shot Ryder â€” and actor Michael Pitt, for the menâ€™s campaign â€” in Coney Island, N.Y. The campaigns will run in international editions of Vogue and GQ, as well as in issues of WSJ. Magazine, Vanity Fair, Interview, Lui and Gentlewoman.
Do you remember when Winona did Drunk History a few months ago? It seems she will be doing it again.
John Lithgow has posted on his Twitter about doing something with Winona and Jack Black for Drunk History.
So much fun this past week doing #DrunkHistory with Winona Ryder Tuesday and Jack Black Friday
