“Look at the Hardy Boys! They started out as kid detectives just solving mysteries in Bayport and now they have an entire book series about them!”
Ari Graynor on her guest starring role on Law & Order: SVU as Missy Kurtz:
Being on any of the Law & Orders is a total rite of passage. You don’t have your badge in being an actor in New York, especially in the early 2000s, if you haven’t been on one of the Law & Order shows.
It was majorly exciting but also super confusing because I still don’t quite understand how I gave my sister gonorrhea. It has haunted me for years for 10 years. I’m still trying to figure that one out.

Emily Nussbaum on Tatiana Maslany’s performance in the sci-fi thriller “Orphan Black” (subscription required): http://nyr.kr/1i7OUnH
“If it weren’t for Tatiana Maslany, the show’s star, ‘Orphan Black’ would be just a likable-enough thriller, with Toronto local color—enough to recommend it to a Canadaphilic sci-fi buff like me, but maybe not to you.
Maslany explodes that calculation entirely. The actress delivers a performance so magnetic that it transforms the show into something with staying power, a near must-watch.”
