November 29 - December 5, 2020 The Independent • Entertainment Extra 3 By Michelle Rose TV Media Wrestling with love: You may know actress-dancer-writer Sunita Mani from her role as Arthie "Beirut the Mad Bomber" Premkumar in the now-canceled Netflix dramedy "GLOW," or as Trenton in "Mr. Robot." You might have even recognized Mani from her drywall-busting performance in the music video for DJ Snake and Lil Jon's "Turn Down for What." In spite of "GLOW's" cancel- lation, Mani has had a busy year. The comedic actress is fresh off leading roles in two recently re- leased films, "Save Yourselves!" and Amazon's "Evil Eye," and she may be gearing up for anoth- er busy year in 2021, since she's already lined up her next TV gig: a role in HBO's "Scenes From a Marriage." If the title sounds familiar, it's because the limited series is an adaptation of Ingmar Bergman's 1974 Swedish miniseries-turned- film. Written and directed by Hagai Levi ("The Affair"), the HBO project is a modern take on the filmmaker's brutally honest depiction of a marriage break - ing down — a depiction that was popularly blamed for rising divorce rates and partly based on Bergman's own relationship with the film's star, Liv Ullman. Oscar Isaac ("Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker," 2019) is the male lead for this 2020s version. He will star opposite his long- time friend, Jessica Chastain ("A Most Violent Year," 2014), who stepped in after Michelle Wil - liams ("Venom," 2018) exited the role due to a scheduling conflict. The two leads (and former Jul- liard classmates) will also serve as executive producers. As for Mani, you'll spot the "Mr. Robot" actress in a support- ing role when "Scenes From a Marriage" airs sometime in 2021, according to IMDb. Hahn 'Next Door': More cast- ing news, this time courtesy of Apple TV+: "Mrs. Fletcher" star Kathryn Hahn will play a lead role in Apple's new limited series, "The Shrink Next Door," which also stars Will Ferrell ("Downhill," 2020) and Paul Rudd ("Living With Yourself "). "The Shrink Next Door" is inspired by true events and based on the hit podcast of the same name. It's a dark comedy that tells the story of a strange relationship between a psy - chiatrist (played by Rudd) and his long-time patient, Martin "Marty" Markowitz (Ferrell). If you're getting light-hearted "What About Bob?" (1991) vibes from that description, think again: Rudd's charming psychiatrist-to-the-stars is one who eventually inserts himself into his patient's life, to the point of moving into his Hamp - tons home and persuading Marty to name him president of the family business. Hahn will play the role of Marty's younger sister. The eight-episode series hails from "The Big Sick" (2017) di- rector Michael Showalter, with writer Georgia Pritchett ("Suc- cession") penning the script. It also marks a reunion of sorts for the three leads. Hahn, who will next appear in the Disney+ series "WandaVi- sion," made a big impression as Ferrell's sister-in-law in the 2008 film, "Step Brothers." She also appeared as a political operative alongside Rudd in a multi-episode arc on NBC's "Parks and Recreation." As for executive producers Rudd and Ferrell, the two comedians first teamed up in the 2004 film "An - chorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" and reprised their roles in the 2008 sequel.
