‘Elementary’ Creator on Series Finale Time Jumps, Joan’s Cancer Scare and if Moriarty’s Actually Dead

  • The Wrap
“Elementary” came to an end on Thursday after seven years and more than 150 episodes, with Sherlock and Joan reunited at the brownstone to solve one final case.

“It was really important to me to bring them home,” series creator Rob Doherty said of the episode in an interview with TheWrap. “They live in the brownstone, but the precinct is just as much a home to them, in the same way that the people there are family. I wanted to suggest to the audience that you really can come home again.”

The finale’s three-year time jump — time Sherlock spent working independently in Europe after faking his death — was a nod to the original Sherlock Holmes’ death in “The Final Problem” and his resurrection in its sequel “The Adventure of the Empty House.” Not only was it a chance for Doherty and the writers to show how the characters grow and change having lived separate lives,

‘Mrs. Maisel’ Star Rachel Brosnahan Is Ready to ‘Clap’ Her ‘Ass Off’ for Julia Louis-Dreyfus at the Emmys
This story about Rachel Brosnahan first appeared in the Down to the Wire issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine.

This Emmy’s season marks Rachel Brosnahan’s second go-round for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, a category she won last year for her portrayal of Miriam “Midge” Maisel on Amy Sherman-Palladino’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” This time around, she’s up against such formidable adversaries as Natasha Lyonne from “Russian Doll,” Christina Applegate from “Dead to Me,” Catherine O’Hara from “Schitt’s Creek,” Phoebe Waller-Bridge from “Fleabag” — plus the most nominated and winningest woman in the history of the category, Julia Louis-Dreyfus from “Veep.”

“I am ready to lose gracefully, and stand on my feet and clap my ass off for Julia Louis-Dreyfus in September,” Brosnahan said, laughing to acknowledge that Louis-Dreyfus had won the category six years in a row before last year, when she wasn’t eligible.

‘Dead to Me’ Star Christina Applegate on Why Female Writers Need to Tackle Women’s Friendships

‘Dead to Me’ Star Christina Applegate on Why Female Writers Need to Tackle Women’s Friendships
This story about Christina Applegate first appeared in the Down to the Wire issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine.

Christina Applegate’s character in Netflix’s “Dead to Me” is a lot of things — but mostly, Jen Harding is angry and in pain.

“I’ve had to go through my own grief and loss in my life, and it was messy, but I also was working and had to buck up and put it all away,” she said. “A lot of what Jen is going through was cathartic for me, to be able to go there and open up those doors again and examine that loss and pain that I’ve had to deal with in my life. I think all of us at the end of those three months [of shooting] were exhausted.”

Applegate, who was nominated for an Emmy for her role, added, “I’m not usually the first one

Rachel Brosnahan can do something at the Emmys only Julia Louis-Dreyfus has accomplished in the last 18 years

Rachel Brosnahan can do something at the Emmys only Julia Louis-Dreyfus has accomplished in the last 18 years
Before “Veep” sat out last year’s cycle, it was difficult to remember a time when Julia Louis-Dreyfus wasn’t winning Best Comedy Actress Emmys for playing Selina Meyer. Even harder: remembering the last time someone other than Louis-Dreyfus had garnered back-to-back statuettes (forget about six in a row). But now Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) could be the first person not named Julia Louis-Dreyfus to win consecutive Best Comedy Actress honors since 2001.

Repeat champs was all the rage in this category in the ’90s, with Candice Bergen and Helen Hunt claiming eight of the 10 awards that decade; Kirstie Alley and Roseanne Barr were the one-timers. Before Jld’s reign, Patricia Heaton was the last to defend her title, winning in 2000 and ’01 for “Everybody Loves Raymond.” After that, there were 10 different champs for 10 different shows — including Louis-Dreyfus for “The Old Adventures of New Christine” — before “Veep” came along.

Celebrating Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Emmy’s Comedy Queen (Column)

Celebrating Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Emmy’s Comedy Queen (Column)
Let’s take a moment to give Julia Louis-Dreyfus some much-deserved praise. As HBO’s “Veep” ends its run — and aims to add a coda to its already amazing haul over the years at the Emmys — the actress is poised to make history one more time this September.

All signs point to another win in the lead comedy actress category for Louis-Dreyfus, which would make her ninth as a performer overall. That would place her ahead of Cloris Leachman, with whom she’s currently tied, at eight each. Louis-Dreyfus already is in the books for winning the most acting Emmys in the same role and on the same series — six, for playing Selina Meyer on “Veep.”

That makes it all the more funny to think that once upon a time there was such a thing as a “‘Seinfeld’ curse.” In the years that followed the 1998 series finale of “Seinfeld,” the

Married With Children: 10 Facts You Didn’t Know About Kelly Bundy

If you grew up in the nineties, there were not one but three different Kelly’s to worship as TV goddesses. The Kelly Next Door—Kelly Kapowski on Saved By The Bell, The Spoiled Brat Kelly—Kelly Taylor on Beverly Hills, 90210. Lastly, but certainly not least, there was the Funny Vixen Kelly, Kelly Bundy on Married...With Children. Played by Christina Applegate, Kelly instantly became a breakout star of the show. Her entrances on the show were always met with raucous applause from the studio audience. It was a time when skin-tight outfit after skin-tight outfit certainly helped that fandom for Kelly Bundy.

In a lot of ways, Kelly is the heart of the family. Despite making fun of him, she genuinely does seem to care about her brother Bud and is usually happy for him when he winds up with dates. She is naive enough to have a pet

Emmy Experts predict Best Comedy Actress 2019: Yep, Julia Louis-Dreyfus will go 7-for-7 for ‘Veep’
So far Julia Louis-Dreyfus has been unbeatable in Best Comedy Actress for her role as Vice President-turned-President Selina Meyer on HBO’s “Veep,” and our Emmy Experts don’t think that will change for her show’s final season. Louis-Dreyfus won six consecutive acting Emmys for the political laffer (2012-17) in addition to three for producing the Best Comedy Series champ (2015-17). (“Veep” took off last year because of the actress’s cancer battle.) Previously Louis-Dreyfus won for her roles on “Seinfeld” (1996) and “The New Adventures of Old Christine” (2006), bringing her career tally to — gasp — 11 Emmy Awards.

James Marsden’s Cut Role in ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Revealed as Meta Surprise

James Marsden’s Cut Role in ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Revealed as Meta Surprise
James Marsden was announced as a cast member in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” back in June 2018, but he’s nowhere to be found in the theatrical cut opening July 26 from Sony Pictures. Marsden is one of several actors who filmed scenes for “Hollywood” that got cut in the editing room; others include Tim Roth and Danny Strong. Collider has revealed that Marsden’s role in the movie was that of Hollywood icon Burt Reynolds. There are several scenes in the film where actors pop up as Hollywood legends, be it Mike Moh as Bruce Lee or Damian Lewis as Steve McQueen.

The casting of Marsden as Reynolds would’ve been an extremely meta one for “Hollywood” considering Reynolds himself was originally cast by Tarantino. Reynolds joined the project in the role of George Spahn, the ranch owner who rented out his property to Charles Manson and his followers.

From ‘Killing Eve’ to ‘When They See Us,’ Emmy Nominations Celebrate Co-Stars in Same Category

From ‘Killing Eve’ to ‘When They See Us,’ Emmy Nominations Celebrate Co-Stars in Same Category
The idea that co-stars being submitted on the same acting Emmy ballot will split the vote may have been proven to be a myth.

This year, lead drama performers Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia scored their third nominations alongside each other for “This Is Us,” while Sandra Oh of “Killing Eve” saw her second nom on the ballot beside her co-star Jodie Comer.

“That we’re both in is fantastic because this show is two characters,” says Oh. “It’s a celebration of it.”

This Is Us” is a traditional ensemble, while “Killing Eve” is more of a two-hander. But both series saw success for their talent this year.

“Sterling and I don’t talk about it,” Ventimiglia says. “I don’t feel either of us are in that competitive space. I think we’re both confident that we’re satisfied with our jobs and we’re really putting our hearts in our jobs.
