News courtesy Deadline Hollywood: Showtime just started airing the 2nd season of Toni Collette’s Emmy-winning tour de force, The United States Of Tara. But she and Ioan Gruffudd star in the family film that started shooting yesterday for six weeks on location in London. Richard E Grant and Hayley Mills and Anne Reid (The Mother) round out the cast. Foster marks the second collaboration between director Jonathan Newman and producer Deepak Nayar (The Walker). Newman only finished doing pick-up shots on their first collaboration, Swinging With the Finkels, the day before Foster’s filming began. Collette and Gruffudd play a married couple who decide to adopt after their own son is killed. One day a boy unexpectedly arrives on their doorstep. There’s a terrific twist that I can only describe as a feel-good Sixth Sense. It gives me shivers every time I think about it. The film’s based on a previously made Newman short, which he sold to both the BBC and HBO. Peter Farrelly, one half of the infamous Farrelly brothers, was so impressed that he telephoned Newman out of the blue and invited him out to LA to work on the feature together.

NPR‘s “Fresh Air” has a currently featured interviewed with Toni Collette ready for download on their website. Australian actress Toni Collette adopted a Philadelphia accent when she played Haley Joel Osment’s mother in M. Night Shyamalan’s thriller, The Sixth Sense, and she gained 40 pounds to play the socially awkward, ABBA-obsessed daydreamer in the indie-comedy Muriel’s Wedding — but it’s her Emmy-award winning role(s) on Showtime’s United States of Tara that showcases how quickly Collette can transform herself into a character. That’s because on Tara, Collette plays several leading roles; or rather, several variations of the same role — all splintered parts of a suburban housewife’s personality. The alters emerge when her character, Tara, is under great stress — and include an irresponsible teenager named T, a 1950s housewife named Alice and a macho, male truck-driving sort-of-guy called Buck. Read the rest here.
