Viola Davis Finally Gets the Lead Role Shes Been Waiting for in How to Get Away With Murder

  Viola Davis thought she was ready. After all, shes been acting for 34 years, has won a Tony, has been nominated for two Oscars, and had Meryl Streep serve as her personal cheering squad after they did Doubt together in 2008. (Someone get her a movie! Streep once shouted at reporters on the red carpet.) But none of that prepared her for having her picture plastered on billboards across the country.   People are always sending me pictures of the poster thats everywhere, Davis says of the ads for How to Get Away With Murder, the latest addition to ABCs hugely popular, allShonda Rhimesproduced Thursday-night lineup, which, shockingly, affords Davis her first starring role in film or television, at age 49.

I see pressure. Im aware that my booty is on the line.   Read More... //www.vulture.com/2014/10/viola-davis-how-to-get-away-with-murder.html

How to Get Away With Murder Creator on Shonda Rhimes: She's Such a Genius

When How to Get Away With Murder premieres Thursday night on ABC, Peter Nowalk will probably be watching the response. As the show's creator, Nowalk is stepping out with his own show after working on several Shonda Rhimes series. It's obviously scary, he said. Things aren't perfect, I think we're all perfectionists in our own way like there's no one else to blame, so it's definitely a risk for me but it's also a lucky risk. Nobody gets this chance, all the stars and planets aligned like this getting Viola Davis , getting the rest of our cast, all these students are so good, the director we have, that Shonda's producing, and the network seems to really support us, this never happens so as much as I'm afraid of it all of failing I also just know that I'm really lucky to be here.   Read More... //www.thewrap.com/abc-how-to-get-away-with-murder-ep-on-shonda-rhimes-shes-such-a-genius/

Viola Davis Is Commanding in How to Get Away with Murder the Show Just Needs to Get Out of Her Way

  First, the good news: Viola Davis, the marquee name headlining ABC's new procedural How to Get Away with Murder , is every bit as commanding as you figured she'd be. And the show around her is lively. Executive-produced by Shonda Rhimes and created by Peter Nowalk (who has written for Rhimes's Grey's Anatomy and Scandal ), it feels like a hip, bouncy version of one of the countless CBS crime series built around a mercurial and assholish fortysomething genius surrounded by gifted but unseasoned whippersnappers.  Read More... //www.vulture.com/2014/09/tv-review-how-to-get-away-with-murder.html
