Minnie Driver Returns To TV!

minnie driver returns to tv

Way back in November 09, we were excited when we first learned that Minnie Driver would be guest-starring on Modern Family.

Her appearance was wonderful, of course, and we're happy to hear that Minnie is finally returning to TV in CBS' drama pilot Hail Mary.

She'll star as "a suburban single mom who teams up with a street-smart hustler to solve crimes."

Showrunner Ilene Chaiken of Showtime's The L Word fame is on board, and Joel Silver & Jeff Wadlow are exec producing.

Seems like a pretty solid team! We'll be honest though, a crime-solving suburban mom doesn't sound like the most intriguing premise in the world to us, but we're def inclined to give Minnie Driver the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise.

Maybe Minnie will make this show, which sounds kind of like a drug-free Weeds, into a hit!

Will U give Minnie Driver's upcoming show a try?

Minnie Driver Confronts Childhood Bully

See?! It gets sooo much better that in time, you might find yourself telling off the person who once made you feel so bad about yourself in school! All in due time!

Minnie Driver is a stunning woman and an incredible actress, but even she at one point of her life was pushed around by someone. The actress was on Ellen DeGeneres' show yesterday and she shared her own story of overcoming bullying as a pre-teen. She explained:

"I remember this new girl arrived when I was like nine years old, and I was completely happy at my school, very confident, and, for whatever reason, she decided that she needed to take me down, and for the next five years, just every single day repeatedly, it was just abusive and frightening. It wasn't until I finally realized that I could fight back and I literally smacked her, it never happened again."

Well, we can't say we condone the violence part, but courage to stand up for yourself is still commendable

She then told Ellen that years later, she was able to confront the girl who tormeneted her in her youth at a party and what she learned from her was rather surprising. She reveals:

"She was there with her husband and her kids and I got the same kind of chilled fear in my stomach when I saw her… and after a couple of drinks I went over to her and I was like, 'Can I just ask you, you remember everything that went on, right…? The systematic and repeated bullying that you inflicted on me.' Her face went white and she looked like she was going to throw up or burst into tears, and I said, 'Why did you do it?' She said, 'It was my identity… I was frightened of who you were - creative and loud and sort of gregarious - and my identity became stopping that and shutting that down in you because it was shut down in me.' That minute, I realized that she was, in a way, as damaged by what she'd done as I had felt damaged myself. It was an interesting and good moment, but I don't think everybody has that opportunity to face their aggressor later on."

No, they surely don't. We think if they did, they would encounter the same kind of thing you did - an adult who regrets their childhood immaturities and decisions.

We should always try and see the good in people, no matter who they are. You never know who they might turn out to be!

Just keep telling yourself - it gets better!

We love Minnie Driver when she is funny!!

We always enjoyed a good case of the chuckles when she guest-appeared on Will & Grace.

Now, Minnie is giving the TV comedy bit another go, as she will be making a guest appearance on Modern Family in January.

Minnie will be playing a former co-worker and friend to Julie Bowen's character, Claire. Their reconnection after years apart does go quite as they imagined.

Exciting!!!
