Mena Suvari first appeared in a couple of episodes of Boy Meets World, so when American Beauty became both a commercial and critical success, she’d paid her dues and played a range of characters. Despite working steadily since then, that film seems to be the one thing everyone knows her from.
With WE tv’s South of Hell (the first season of which marathons on Black Friday) – created by Jason Blum and Eli Roth (Roth directed the premiere) – might just change that. In the series Suvari plays a woman who is forced to co-exist with a demon – and uses that demon to return other demons to Hell.
Suvari spoke with a group of journalists/bloggers recently about tackling not only a lead in a series, but a double lead.
Not one to wait, We tv is beginning its celebration of Law & Order’s 25the anniversary a wee bit early – beginning with ten of L&O’s best episodes over two nights: Tuesday, July 28th and Wednesday, July 29th (8/7C) – and including never-before-see bonus footage, behind the scenes extras and more. Then, in August, the network will run Law & Order blocks three nights a week – Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays (5-11/4-10C).
