On Inside the Actors Studio, James Lipton interviews actress Jessica Chastain. She talks about her days at Julliard and the roles that changed her career including Celia in The Help, Anna in A Most Violent Year, and Maya in Zero Dark Thirty. Chastain’s next big role is based on the life of Molly Bloom, the young ski-bum from Colorado who moved to Los Angeles and hosted exclusive high-stakes poker games for Hollywood A-Listers. Bloom later became a target of an FBI investigation.
Bloom wrote a memoir and Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, The Newsroom) has adapted it for the big screen (his directorial debut). Molly’s Game will also star Idris Elba and Kevin Costner. Inside the Actors Studio airs Wednesdays at 8pm on Bravo.
