Ashley Judd Is Heading To TV!

ashley judd headed to tv

U sure about that, Ashley? Wouldn't U rather do a few more movies with Morgan Freeman??? Ha!

After spending time earning a masters degree in public administration at Harvard, Ashley Judd is ready for some more acting…and for the first time since the 90s, she's headed to TV!

In ABC's upcoming drama Missing, Ashley will play a long-retired CIA operative "who is forced to rediscover her spy skills when her son goes missing while at university in Italy." Cool!

Here's what Ashley had to say about the action-packed show, in which she'll do many of her own stunts:

"I lived a very sedentary life [at Harvard]. I basically sat down for two-and-a-half years and didn’t get up."

"Obviously we have to have stunt doubles. But I do most of my own stunts. When I’m on that bridge in Paris and I’m shot and I fall into the Seine, I really did that."

"I like to fight. I find it rewarding."

And more from Ashley on why she chose to enter the TV world:

"Obviously I was aware that this is a golden age of television. The once impermeable membrane between TV actors and film actors is [disappearing]. I remember turning on The Big C, which is a show that I love, and seeing Liam Neeson."

We agree! It's a great time to be on TV, and we're excited to see the new show, Ashley!

Good luck!!!!!

    I have to say I have pretty much stopped reading most of the stories on your site. Why do you always have to have "Click here to read more" and when you do there is one, maybe two sentences? it is a waste.

    Thank god that you agree with her. I am sure this will go a long way in making her transition to tv less painful. By the way your first sentence in the article is so lol! More movies with Morgan Freedman, classic perez.

  3. 3

    Of course she is. To play the same eratz tough as nails, over dramatic, one trick pony she has played in all her stupid movies. Except now she is 44 & not as pretty.
    I bet she is nice person but I have never been impressed with her as an actress & whenever interviewed she always has to push how uber intelligent she is & what a feminist she is. BOO RING. She is no Stephen Hawkings or Gloria Steinham & certainly no Angelina Jolie.
