Here’s the very first look at Meryl Streep in character on the set of “August: Osage County”. Pictured with her is Margo Martindale, who’s playing her sister, Mattie Fay. The film has started shooting this week and includes an all-star cast, featuring Julia Roberts, Sam Shepard, Chris Cooper, Juliette Lewis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Abigail Breslin and Ewan McGregor. When the family patriarch vanishes, the Westons return to rural Oklahoma to care for their afflicted, manipulative mother (Streep), who’s armed with prescription drugs and paranoid mood swings. Many thanks to Joan for the picture.

    I can’t wait to see this movie! they make such an awesome pair!! I like Meryl’s hair any color. Brown, blond, black, I like it. I especially like the way she just got it cut. Does anyone know what this movie is rated?

    I would have to add myself to Margo Martindale faith in her work, did anybody saw her in Secretariat, she stole Diane Lane´s thunder completly with just being there, I wouldn´t be surprise at all to see another wonderful performance added to her carrer in this movie and in Meryl´s company, imagine that

    Obviously she is sporting a wig. I had assumed she would be dark haired for this role since the other women in the family are all brunettes. I just can’t tell from the angle and because it looks like the wind is blowing, if it is medium or long hair with curls.

    I am so excited she is making another movie and with the news of her possibly going to be in The Homesman is so thrilling.
    Donnie – I agree with you – putting her with Hopkins would be amazing.
    I LOVE this website.

    I love Margo Martindale! If I ever wanted to be an actor, I would like to have a career like hers. She is great in everything that she does. She seems to always be working, and her private life is that, private. Can’t wait to see this movie. Meryl has worked with everyone, but I think Hollywood execs have lost their damn minds for not getting her and Anthony Hopkins in a movie together! WAKE UP somebody and get a great script for these two!
