I've never watched a single episode of Mad Men, which is apparently where she's garnered fame and accolades. Was she a member of Don Draper's harem?

GOOD GOD NO!

This woman has the emotional range of a Galapagos Island Tortoise and the screen presence of a kumquat.  A mouldy, two week old kumquat that has been left on a counter in Orlando in the middle of August with all the windows open.

Seriously... NO!

So, a major Scientologist in Elizabeth Moss, a loon hardcore Randian in Vince Vaughn, sounds like a great mix.  Just add Carcossa to get their paranoiac fantasies going!

I can't believe they cast that grinning idiot from all those shiatty rom-coms in the first season, either. I mean, they were seriously scraping bottom with that one.

Worse. She was the office prude.

Why the fark do you care?  There are far worse examples of behavior in Hollywood than that.  Sean Penn cracked Madonna's skull with a baseball bat, but he's an incredible actor.  Mel Gibson clearly has some issues with the Tribe, but he's usually entertaining.

They didn't.  They cast the guy from "A Time to Kill", "We are Marshall" and "Reign of Fire" instead.

That's what I meant by emotional range.

There is something about her face that makes me not want to look at her.  Bring back Alexandra Daddario!  Why?  Why the hell not!

Some of the stuff Moss has said about him after the breakup make me think that she tried to get him into Scientology and he told her to fark off.

Well they might as well call it Poo Detective now, because it's going to stink!

Whenever anyone ever asks me how I'd improve any show on TV, I'll say that bolded bit from now on.

I've never heard of her before True Detective, but she's like a hotter Alison Brie and I would walk barefoot through glass and hot coals for Alison Brie.

I first saw her in Percy Jackson. She wears leather armor and kicks ass and pretends to be younger than she is. And there's some other stuff about gods or whatever, but it's mostly a story about her doing things in leather, the best I can recall.

It was a trip seeing her in True Detective after knowing her from movies based on a series of young-adult "Harry Potter and the Mythology of Greece" books.

Anyone who has seen Top of the Lake knows that the critics of Moss are dopes.
 
2014-08-05 03:13:16 PM  
I liked her better when she was married to Johnny Depp
 
2014-08-05 03:23:29 PM  
So she's playing the disfigured, time-worn hag twelve years after the events that occur to the normal-looking person cast for the other part of the show, right?

I see. And in your informed opinion, is she worthy of all the plaudits she's received-or is she more of a 9 on the Bad Actress scale of 1 to Kristen Stewart?

If 1 is Kristen Stewart, I'd say she's a solid 5...the "Susan Dey on L.A. Law" range.

/got nuthin.

Given the description of her role, I think she'd be pretty convincing. Certainly better casting than Jeannine Garofalo in "Copland" (the one blemish on an otherwise great film).

Between Moss and Michelle Forbes, I'm guessing we're going to see some pretty badass female characters.
