This morning, Meryl has been a guest on NBC’s Today Show. She talked a little bit about Robin Williams, who sadly died yesterday, and about working with daughter Mamie in Jonathan Demme’s upcoming “Ricki and the Flash”. They also talked about “The Giver” and her character, Chief Elder. The full interview can be watched in the video archive. Screencaptures will be added later.

Yesterday, Meryl has attended the New York premiere for “The Giver”, joining co-stars Jeff Bridges, Katie Holmes and Brenton Thwaites on the red carpet. With many thanks to Lindsey, 130 high quality pictures have been added to the image library. More to come. Earlier today, Meryl has been a guest on the Today Show, so check back later for a video and screencaptures.


While sorting things for the site, I’ve realised that most of the screencaptures of Meryl’s television appearances throughout the years have never been added to the new image library back when I moved all images. So, over 2.000 screencaptures have been re-added, ranging from the early 1980s to 2009, when screencaptures have been up to date again. For a complete overview of all added captures, have a look at the previews below and enjoy your trip down the memory lane.

According to Vanity Fair, Rick Springfield has joined Meryl Streep in the upcoming Jonathan Demme–directed, Diablo Cody–written film Ricki and the Flash. Last month, Springfield posted a photo on Twitter of himself with the Oscar-winning actress before promptly taking it down. But now that the news has been broken by The Hollywood Reporter, the snapshot is back up as proof of the unlikely on-screen partnership. The outlet notes that “Springfield will play a bandmember who has a crush on Ricki, and he’ll be showing off his skills on the guitar in the project.” Last week, we learned that filming on the project was on hold because the director insisted that Streep, who is playing a struggling musician, learn how to play the guitar herself. No word on whether Springfield is helping tutor the actress. According to last week’s report, the band will “mostly play classic rock” plus some contemporary music, possibly Lady Gaga. And according to Broadway World, The Book of Mormon’s Ben Platt has signed on as well. He will play Daniel, the bartender at Ricki and the Flash’s regular spot, who worships Streep’s Ricki. The film, about “a woman who abandoned her family when she was younger to find fame and fortune in California,” begins shooting this October. Kevin Kline and Streep’s real-life daughter, Mamie Gummer, round out the cast as Ricki’s ex-husband and estranged daughter. Many thanks to Glenn for the heads-up.

A couple of magazine scans have been added to the image library, some of them from earlier this year during the “August: Osage County” promotion and two new ones. The People Magazine edition of August has a first look at “Into the Woods”. And Empire Magazine’s September issue has a feature on the Blu-Ray release of “Sophie’s Choice”. Many thanks to Simona, Claudia and Ali for the scans. Also, with thanks to Lindsey, the “Into the Woods” production stills have been replaced with HQ versions.

Disney has launched the teaser trailer for “Into the Woods” today. It’s literally just teasing its stars and scenes, but there are some nice brief moments of Meryl’s witch. Make sure to watch the teaser trailer in the video archive. Captures have been added to the image library. Edit: A new production still, featuring Meryl, James Corden and Emily Blunt, has been added as well.

The Disney blog has posted a first set of production stills from “Into the Woods”, including one new image of Meryl as the Witch. Click the preview on the left to view it in the image library. Also, as BroadwayWorld reports, the theatrical trailer for the film will be featured before theatrical showings of “Guardians of the Galaxy”, “Get On Up” and “Calvary”.
