The movie A Kid Like Jake is going to premiere at Sundance Film Festival in January 2018! Claire filmed it around June and July this year, and we got a lot of pictures of her on set (which you can see here). She might start promoting the 7th season of “Homeland” soon, but we hope she gets to attend the festival!

A Kid Like Jake / U.S.A. (Director: Silas Howard, Screenwriter: Daniel Pearle, Producers: Jim Parsons, Todd Spiewak, Eric Norsoph, Paul Bernon, Rachel Song) — As married couple Alex and Greg navigate their roles as parents to a young son who prefers Cinderella to G.I. Joe, a rift grows between them, one that forces them to confront their own concerns about what’s best for their child, and each other. Cast: Claire Danes, Jim Parsons, Octavia Spencer, Priyanka Chopra, Ann Dowd, Amy Landecker. World Premiere

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.
