Lizzy Caplan, the confident young actress in the sexually charged Showtime drama Masters of Sex, is nominated for an Emmy Award. When asked by the New York Times about her chances of winning Caplan replied: “I’m Jewish, so I’m predisposed to assume there’s no chance in hell that’s going to happen.”
Caplan clearly has a great sense of humor. No wonder she was cast in Seth Rogen and James Franco’s comedic film The Interview. Caplan plays a CIA agent, a profession she seriously considered when younger. “My serious consideration was limited to doing an online application for the CIA. I poured my heart and soul into it and never heard back from them.” The Interview release was pushed back, after some controversy, until December. So we’ll get to see Caplan–with or without her Emmy–around the holidays.
