Ellen Barkin Is ThisClose To Landing The Lead In Ryan Murphy's New Pilot

| Filed under: TV News

Excellent choice, Mr. Ryan Murphy. You certainly have a knack for snatching up the best talent from Broadway to star in your shows!

Besides Glee and American Horror Story, Murphy has a new comedy pilot going up for NBC called The New Normal about a gay couple and the surrogate who gives birth to their child. Ellen Barkin, who just won a Tony this past season for her debut in The Normal Heart, has just landed the role of the surrogate’s mother.

Somehow, we think that's going to be a saucy, sassy role! Perfect for Ellen!

    She's exactly who I dont wanna see on TV.

    Not to be unkind, but wouldn't she be a bit too old for motherhood ?

    The MOST over rated actress in film history. Not to be unkind but she was not even pretty when she was young. She clearly did not make her money from her acting career. She has married for it. I have a terrible aversion to her. The most horrific fact about her is that she is the women Gabriel Byrne had his children with. Thank heavens they are beautiful but Gabriel could not produce an ugly child. I think she divorced Gabriel because he did not have enough money for her.

    I forgot to mention the elephant in the room…horrific plastic surgery. She has begun the transition from someone who has had some work done to someone who looks like another species.
