Claire talked to Cindy Adams from Page Six about playing a therapist – and also going to therapy. Read it below.

I interviewed a bear. No real grizzly or Gobi. A human inside Stupid Brain Costume Shop’s fuzzy off-white suit. This polar species is in “Brigsby Bear” with real-life star Claire Danes.

Claire: “My part in the movie’s to encourage an innocent young man with imagination to accept reality. He’s created his own world. An imaginary role for himself with an attachment to this make-believe bear. I have no scenes with it, so you might say I’m anti-bear. I play the man’s therapist.”
What’s someone in pink stilettos and backless armless Prada know about playing a therapist?

“Oh, please. You kidding? Of course I know about therapy. I’m a New Yorker. Everybody’s in therapy. My best friends. My childhood chum’s a therapist. At birth, as I left the hospital I went into therapy.”

“I’ve been working steadily so now it’s time to be just a wife, a mom and an average person at home. Nice for awhile to even not be catered to excessively. My 4 ¹/₂-year-old’s grown up on sets. He’s even been on this set with me.”

Back to the bear and his (her?) handler: “Max time inside the suit’s two hours. Plus handling liquids before and after since you can’t pee or drink while in it. You can’t even release your arms for a snack. You can’t get that suit wet or dirty. Lunch needs the suit’s full removal.”

“On set, the bear guy was one same professional stuntman throughout. You can’t pinhole the costume’s eyes for vision because cameras and lights would pick that up. So inside he can’t see. Can’t hear. Handlers were with him at all times.”

“The outfit’s animatronic. Face movements, mesh mouth, eyebrows, lids react. Controlled animatronically. A Bluetooth headset and microphone’s inside, so the outside person talks to the bear person, who reacts in an exact replica of the action required.”

Some reporters get one-on-ones with gorgeous George Clooney or handsome Jon Hamm. My luck — I interview a friggin’ Kodiak inside a fuzzy Dr. Denton’s.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 7th season of Homeland is set to film in Virginia, US. Alex Gansa, the showrunner, and Terry McAuliffe, current governor of Virginia, have released statements about the move, and you can read them below.

The Showtime drama is relocating production to Virginia for its upcoming seventh season. Filming will begin in the Richmond area this fall, with the network eyeing a 2018 premiere. The Emmy-winning drama starring Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin, which was renewed for seasons seven and eight last August, returned to the U.S. last year to film in New York after spending the two previous seasons shooting in South Africa and Berlin.

“We’re thrilled to bring the production of Homeland to the great state of Virginia. Its cities and neighborhoods and people will surely provide a rich backdrop for our story, and we in turn aim to provide a small but hopefully significant boost to the local economy,” said Alex Gansa, who serves as the showrunner and executive producer of the Fox 21 Television Studios series.
