Consequence TV has a lenghty profile and interview with Helen Mirren for the recent premiere of “Documentary Now”: It’s been five months since I spoke with Helen Mirren about hosting the IFC spoof series Documentary Now!, and I still haven’t gotten over her saying that she doesn’t think she’s funny. “I’m never comfortable with comedy,” she says, to be exact. “I’m so out of my depth with comedy. The only way I can deal with it is to be as serious as I possibly can be, if you know what I mean. I think if I was ever a part of a comedy team, I would definitely be the straight man. I wouldn’t be the funny one. I would be the one to set the joke up.” It’s an opinion that comes from her deep respect for the genre: “I think much too seriously so I love watching comedy. I’m very admiring, especially on film, comedy is very difficult. I’m very admiring of people who do comedy well on film. I think it’s easier to do it live because film is so technical to maintain the timing and the lightness of improvisational quality on film, it’s very difficult. But no, I’m not very good at comedy.” The complete interview can be read here.

The list of narrators for the audiobook version of Bob Dylan’s upcoming book has come to light, and it reads like a who’s who of Oscar contenders from the past few decades, along with the author himself doing some of the reading. According to Variety, the lineup of voice talent reading chapters from “The Philosophy of Modern Song” aloud includes Jeff Bridges, Steve Buscemi, John Goodman, Oscar Isaac, Helen Mirren, Rita Moreno, Sissy Spacek, Alfre Woodard, Jeffrey Wright and Renée Zellweger. “The Philosophy of Modern Song” is a collection of essays about 66 different songs Dylan considers great pieces of songwriting. It comes out Nov. 8 from Simon & Schuster. Word of the audiobook readers follows the revelation last month of the 66 tunes Dylan is tackling in the forthcoming book. It will include his evaluations of classic songs written and/or recorded by greats like Jimmy Reed, Willie Nelson, Little Richard, Nina Simone, Elvis Costello and Townes Van Zandt, along with perhaps less expected picks like Cher’s “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves,” the Eagles’ “Witchy Woman” and Rosemary Clooney’s “Come On-a My House.” The audiobook will be released on November 1, 2022, and can be pre-ordered on Amazon..

TV Guide has assembled all latest cast additions and character information on Paramount+’s “1923”, which is currently shooting and scheduled for a streaming premiere this December. The newest cast member is Robert Patrick, who will play Sheriff William McDowell, a friend of the Dutton family, according to Deadline. Patrick’s casting comes the day after it was announced that Westworld actor Brandon Sklenar has been cast as Spencer Dutton, “Jacob Dutton’s (Ford) nephew, and John Dutton Sr.’s (Dale) brother, who has witnessed the horrors of World War I,” Variety reported. The spin-off, which was originally titled 1932, takes place during the Prohibition era following World War I, with Montana experiencing an economic collapse ahead of the Great Depression. This sets the story about 30 or 35 years before Kevin Costner’s character, John Dutton III, was born, and about 40 years after the events of 1883. The official show description reads, “1923 focuses on the Dutton family’s next two generations as they struggle to survive historic drought, lawlessness and Prohibition, and an epidemic of cattle theft; all battled beneath the cloud of Montana’s great depression, which preceded the nation by almost a decade.” Here’s the main cast list for 1923:

Harrison Ford as Jacob Dutton, the patriarch of the Yellowstone ranch, husband to Cara Dutton, and brother of James Dutton.
Helen Mirren as Cara Dutton, the wife to Jacob Dutton and family matriarch.
Darren Mann as Jack Dutton, John Dutton Sr.’s son and great-nephew to Jacob Dutton. He is a dedicated rancher who is deeply loyal to his family.
Michelle Randolph as Elizabeth Strafford, a feisty and capable young woman set to marry into the Dutton family.
James Badge Dale as John Dutton Sr., the oldest nephew and right-hand man of Jacob Dutton.
Marley Shelton as Emma Dutton, the dutiful wife of John Dutton Sr. and the mother of Jack Dutton.
Brian Geraghty as Zane, a fiercely loyal ranch foreman.
Aminah Nieves as Teonna Rainwater, a young woman at a government residential boarding school.
Julia Schlaepfer as Alexandra, a British woman who meets one of the Duttons abroad.
Sebastian Roché, character details unconfirmed.
Brandon Sklenar as Spencer Dutton, Jacob Dutton’s nephew and John Dutton Sr.’s (Dale) brother. Spencer has witnessed the horrors of World War I.
Robert Patrick as Sheriff William McDowell, a friend of the Dutton family.
