The Chicago Tribunte has an in-depth article on what will be changing for “United States of Tara”s second season: The transition from film to television can be rocky for some actors. But not for Toni Collette, the star of Showtime’s “United States of Tara.” “The one thing I am loving is the pace of TV. It’s so quick,” the actress said in a recent interview in Los Angeles on the first day of shooting for Season 2 of “Tara,” which returns in early 2010. “There’s no sitting around. You get to do more of what you love, every day.” If anyone has excelled at the art of the quick transition, it’s Collette, who flawlessly plays four characters on the show. Collette’s primary character, Tara Gregson, is a suburban mom with dissociative identity disorder (DID), which causes her to turn into one of three “alters” whenever she’s stressed. Collette’s versatility in the role is impressive, and members of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences agreed: The actress is up for a best comedy actress award at the Sept. 20 Emmy Awards ceremony.
