    Amanda Peet To Star In Duplass Brothers’ HBO Comedy Pilot
    ‘Togetherness’

    By NELLIE ANDREEVA

    EXCLUSIVE: Amanda Peet is set as a lead in Togetherness, HBO’s
    single-camera comedy pilot written, directed and executive produced by
    brothers Mark and Jay Duplass. It follows two couples living under the
    same roof who struggle to keep their relationships alive while
    pursuing their individual dreams. Peet plays Tina Morris, an energetic
    and beautiful woman who is fun, outgoing, mischievous and smart in
    both dress and brainpower. Tina relocates from Houston to Los Angeles
    and moves in with her sister Michelle Pierson (Melanie Lynskey) and
    her husband Brett Pierson. Also moving in with the Piersons is Brett’s
    friend Alex (Steve Zissis), a struggling, over-the-hill actor who had
    been left homeless. Peet’s casting comes on the heel of Manhattan
    Theater Club’s announcement last week that it will stage Peet’s first
    play, Manhattan Theater Club, next season. There is talks that Blythe
    Danner and Sarah Jessica Parker, who participated in a reading of the
    play, may join the production. On screen, Peet, repped by Gersh and
    Management 360, has been recurring on CBS’ The Good Wife.

    Like Beth, Amanda Peet is a successful model and actress, fully capable of generating her own income.

    Rumor has it, a long time ago Ms. Peet was envious of Beth's larger feet, hands, and equestrian grin. What really set Amanda off was the picture perfect angle that Ostrosky bent her knee when posing at the various Photomat openings she attended.

    Amanda got even and stole Brian Van Holt from Beth. It wasn't that hard.....all Brian had to hear is that Peet knew at least 20 letters of the alphabet, and he was gone. "Finally, a smart one" thought Van Holt.

    Oh please. Don't let that anti-Stern mentality interfere with logic. Amanda Peet is married to David Benioff. Who is one of the showrunners for HBO's Game of Thrones. You think she got that gig because of talent? Her husband landed that for her. End of story. She might be the most talented actress alive but she got the job because her husband has a lot of power at HBO.

    Don't kid yourself that Beth getting jobs because of Howard somehow separates her from the rest of the hollywood women. A-list, B-list, F-list like Beth, they all get jobs because of who they know. Male, female, young, old, makes no difference. It's who you know. You think Will Smith's kids have any talent at all? You think Michael Jackson's son Blanket got a reporting gig (at 16 by the way) because of his talent?

    Nepotism. It's how you play. When you play the game of Hollywood you use nepotism or you die.

    I wish Amanda all the success she deserves...it's very satisfying to know that Howard and the bimbo are insane with jealousy....
    Bravo miss peet!

    true, but that only gets you so far. people like ben stiller and gwenyth paltrow (and pretty much everybody else) get in because of nepotism but they keep getting hired because apparently people want to see them. people do not want beth.

    So what? Who wants a show on HBO when you can have a show on HGTV AND NatGEO? Beth is a clear winner there. She headlines two show while Peet has one. And who watches HBO anyway? When was the last time they had a hit as big as Mom Cave?

    I barely even remember her in it.

    The script ruined that last X-Files movie. It was horrible. What the fuck were they thinking? Was the story based on a script that was rejected and laying around from the TV show era?

    Mr. Vampire,

    Are you claiming that Beth gets her work not through her own awesome talents, but because she is married to Greedy Howie Stern? Are you insane? Beth was a successful model way before she ever cast her wonkers on the wig wearing pipe cleaner. Have you not seen her print ads? What about her movie role in that beach movie where she played a swimmer named "Beth?" - classic....

    She also happens to be quite popular in Europe and has been known to turn an Arabs do-rag upside down on occasion.

    Beth has gone from a Pittsburgh Polski princess who was "visited" by her principal at home to a bent-kneed Asian superstar. Her talents ooze out of every one of her equestrian pores......

    yes, that's true...very often it's WHO you know but let's make a comparison. amanda was a fairly successful working actress before she married david. with all that beth puts up with howard what has she gotten out of the deal...momcaves, FHM, and posh pets.
    that's pretty sad.

    I would change that to Beth headlining one show right now. It doesn't look like Mom Caves is "coming back" ...

    At 14 , I can understand how you think her rack is awesome. But really it's pathetic.

    She touched Mulder's face & I was all "Awwwww, helllll no bitchhhhhh!" [​IMG]


    The main problem w/the movie is that Mulder & Scully barely had any scenes together. And the shit script. :facepalm:

    I'm sure Peet got the gig because of her husband's HBO pull, no question. But she's still at least somewhat talented and intelligent, and she's hot. She definitely won't embarrass herself like someone we could mention, either on the show or while she's out promoting it.

    But this new show sounds like absolute ass. She won't embarrass herself but the writers might.

    I have a much better project in mind for her. It's her and Robin Wright in a tiny little soho apartment. The air-conditioning is broken, so they're sitting around in wife-beaters and panties, drinking margaritas and getting all flirty with each other. One thing leads to another.........

    It writes itself!

    I agree in principle but not in example: who the fuck wants to see any more of Gwenyth Paltrow?!? Spielberg's her Godfather or fake-uncle or some shit. End of.

    She's a better-connected Demi Moore, that's all, who'd already be on the scrap heap if it wasn't for her "uncle Morrie" or whatever the fuck she calls him.

    But yes, Beth is celebrity-cancer. She could be Harvey Weinstein's daughter and she still wouldn't be famous.

    Amanda Peet got married in 2006. :rolleye: She had already been a very successful working actress for years and years by that time.

    She wasn't living in an apartment with the roof caving in waiting for Mr. Right to rescue her. :coffee:
