    Lizzy Caplan Talks The Curious Link Between The Upcoming 'Frankie Go Boom' & 'Queens Of Country'

    It's only a matter of time before the talented and funny Lizzy Caplan finds the role that will finally break her out in a big way. We recently placed her on our 15 Actresses On The Rise list, saying that she's "a new spin on the Diane Keaton type." But for those who have been paying attention, they've already noticed her talents in "Cloverfield," "Mean Girls" and more recently on the two season run of "Party Down." Not content to sit and wait for Hollywood to come calling, Caplan has three low-budget, but high concepts flicks on her slate: the improv comedy "High Road" directed by Matt Walsh; the wacky music comedy "Queens Of Country" and the...

    Lizzy Caplan Says A 'Party Down' Movie Is More Likely Than An 'Arrested Development' Movie

    Exclusive: Oh, "Party Down." Yet another brilliant comedy that shone for a brief moment before getting canceled; ever since going off the air the witty, hilarious sitcom has slowly gained a new audience who are now just catching up with it on DVD. Created and written by John Enbom, Rob Thomas, Dan Etheridge and Paul Rudd, "Party Down" featured an amazing ensemble cast of Adam Scott, Ken Marino, Jane Lynch, Jennifer Coolidge, Megan Mullally, Ryan Hansen, Martin Starr and Lizzy Caplan, and chronicled the travails of an L.A. based catering company made up of actors and writers hoping to make it big, including one who already had a brief taste of...

    Simon Beaufoy Talks Alternate Ending To '127 Hours' That Was Cut (Poor Lizzy Caplan)

    When we first saw Danny Boyle’s survival tale “127 Hours” at TIFF, we called it “Lean, efficient, despairing, thrilling and ultimately life affirming” as well as one of the best films of the year.
