The first episode of Tara’s promising third season premiered yesterday – what a treat to have Tara, her alters, and the Gregson’s back. I’ve added 550 HD captures of the episode to the gallery.
Promotion for the third season of “United States of Tara”, which premieres tonight on Showtime, has been quiet – probably due to Toni Collette’s pregnancy. However, USA Today has put together a nice piece on the show including an interview with Toni: It’s one thing to nail an American accent as an Australian. It’s another to master seven of them. And it’s yet something else to do so from more than 7,000 miles away, as Sydney native Toni Collette has done in her role as Tara Gregson, the Kansas housewife and mother with dissociative identity disorder at the heart of Showtime’s United States of Tara. The series returns for a third season Monday night (10:30 ET/PT). No matter that Collette lives Down Under. On Tara, she talks as though she lives down South (as beer-swilling, motorcycle-cruising, Y-chromosome-owning Buck), downtown (as Noo Yawk feminist therapist Shoshana Schoenbaum) and down in some Midwestern basement (as gum-snapping, ponytailed, teenage T). And those are only three of Tara’s alter egos. Collette, 38, has never worked with a dialect coach on the show. She credits her uncanny — and Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning — ability to inhabit thoroughly Yankee characters so convincingly to “a misspent youth watching too much American television.” But her talent for drawling twangs and nasally honks aside, “I’m attracted to roles that have a sense of truth to them and a sense of universality to the story,” regardless of geography and demography, Collette says.
Added brand new production stills from United States of Tara’s 3rd season. The series will have its premiere on March 28 on Showtime.
With season three of United States of Tara in the pipeline for March 28, Showtime has updated the series’ website with new content and features, including a making of featurette on its third season. You can watch the clip in the video archive.
The trailer for the third season of “United States of Tara”, to premiere on March 28, 2011, has been released and can be watched in the video archive. How exiting to see the old – and most probably new – alters return!
This year’s coverage of the Golden Globe Awards will be, unfortunately, rather short. Toni didn’t attend the Globes, nor did she win in the Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical category for “United States of Tara”. The Golden Globe went to Laura Linney, a no-show as well. So, no pictures, no media this year. The segment of her category has been uploaded to the video archive for archival purposes anyway ;-)
