It’s been some time since we have posted additional stills of Meryl’s previous work, so brace yourself for a big update of fantastic on-set pictures and promotionals from her work, ranging from 1977 to 2021. Among the highlights are some stunning deleted scenes pictures from her motion picture debut in “Julia”, which was originally a much bigger part, but got reduced in the editing room to two brief scenes. Judging from these pictures, we’ve missed out a lot. The second part of the update will be posted next week. Enjoy the additions.

Hulu has released a first teaser trailer for the third season of “Only Murders in the Building”, which gives us a first look at Meryl Streep’s character. Here’s additional info courtesy Vulture, minus the season two spoilers: The season three teaser, newly released by Hulu, suggests a possible answer to that last question. Meryl Streep, who was announced as part of the new season’s cast back in January, stars in the teaser, and appears to be part of the play that Charles (Steve Martin), Oliver (Martin Short), and Paul Rudd are putting on. This makes her a compelling suspect. The teaser will be aired on television during tonight’s Academy Awards broadcast. A premiere date for the series has not yet been set.
While public appearances have become a rare treat since the pandemic, Meryl Streep has attended not one but two New York functions this week. On Monday, she honored author John Guare’s at 42nd Street’s “A Celebration to John Guare”. And on Thursday, she was among the many guests at the Broadway opening night of “Pictures from Home”, a new play starring Danny Burstein, Zoë Wanamaker and Nathan Lane. Pictures from both events have been added to the photo gallery. The video of her John Guare recital can be found below, with many thanks to Marci.

We are blessed this week with news on Meryl Streep’s upcoming productions with not only “Only Murders in the Building”, but also a first look at “Extrapolations”, which will premiere on AppleTV+ on March 17, 2023. While there haven’t been any news on the 8-part miniseries since its press release in November 2021, I was wondering if Meryl was really involved with the project after all. With today’s first look images and synopsis, I’m happily proven wrong. So far, we know that Meryl’s character is named Eve Shearer and that she plays Sienna Miller’s mother. The series boasts a powerhouse cast including Tobey Maguire, Forest Whitaker, Diane Lane, Kit Harrington, Marion Cotillard, Daveed Diggs, Edward Norton, Gemma Chan, David Schwimmer and Matthew Rhys. Many thanks to Glenn for the heads-up.
“Extrapolations” is a bracing drama from writer, director and executive producer Scott Z. Burns that introduces a near future where the chaotic effects of climate change have become embedded into our everyday lives. Eight interwoven stories about love, work, faith and family from across the globe will explore the intimate, life-altering choices that must be made when the planet is changing faster than the population. Every story is different, but the fight for our future is universal. And when the fate of humanity is up against a ticking clock, the battle between courage and complacency has never been more urgent. Are we brave enough to become the solution to our own undoing before it’s too late?

What better way to start the new year with a new project for Meryl Streep, who is checking into “Only Murders in the Building”. As The Hollywood Reporter writes, Streep will appear in the third season of Hulu’s murder-mystery comedy. Star Selena Gomez revealed Streep’s casting in an Instagram post Tuesday. Details of Streep’s role – and how extensive it may be – are being kept under wraps for now. She joins a cast led by Gomez, Steve Martin and Martin Short; Paul Rudd – who had a cameo in the second-season finale – and former Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams are also joining the cast, which also includes Tina Fey, Vanessa Aspillaga, Adina Verson, Ryan Broussard and Andrea Martin. Hulu has said the show is its most popular original comedy; it spent nine weeks on Nielsen’s top 10 streaming series chart in 2022, drawing 3.67 billion minutes of viewing time in that span. Steve Martin also posted a group photo with Streep and announced that filming on season three of the series began. Both pictures have been added to the photo gallery.

On October 13, 2022, Meryl Streep accepted the Alumnae/i Association of Vassar College (AAVC) Distinguished Achievement Award. According to a lenghty article published on the Vassar website, her movie-star charisma was immediately evident, but when Streep addressed the 1,500 members of the Vassar community—including fellow members of the class of ’71 – the three-time Academy Award winner didn’t talk much about the movies. She chose instead to tell her audience about how Vassar had shaped her life, setting her on a path of social awareness and activism. “One value of a Vassar education is that it kind of dooms you to a life of awareness …”Streep said. “Once you know how to search out and credit the facts around certain problems, you are called on by your conscience to act on them. The Vassar conscience rings a bell in your head; it’s a call to action in your heart.” Pictures from the event have been added to the photo gallery – with credit to Vassar College / Karl Rabe, the complete article can be read over here.

Among the star-studded guests in attendance were Meryl Streep with daughter Grace and son-in-law Mark Ronson. Pictures from the event have been added to the photo gallery.
