This B-list actress, who has been nominated for an Oscar, is looking for a lead role on a television series. The reason? Nearly every role (95% at least) she’s been offered in the last three years in movies has been either ‘The Mother’ or ‘The Wife.’
Her agent advised her that if she wants another good role that she needs to start searching for a television show, or invest in some plastic surgery because a lot of people feel she looks older than her years.

This broke a lot sooner than we expected. At the time of writing, negotiations were underway, but nothing was cemented. Now it is. It’s been announced over the weekend that Amy Adams will return to television with a lead role in a HBO television series written by Gillian Flynn.
In the last three years, Adam has only appeared in 3 movies, but she has two movies expected to be released later this year. Adams, while only 41, is constantly being offered and accepting roles in which she plays middle-aged, or ‘The Wife’ or ‘The Mother.’
She wasn’t happy.
In Sharp Objects, Adams will portray a journalist without children or a husband investigating the murder of two teenage girls. As we mentioned in the blind, this isn’t a miniseries, which is what a lot of A-list actors prefer to star in on television. This will be an ongoing series with potential for more series.
