Trend Watch: We're having a 'Big Chill' moment
Put on the Motown records and start dancing around your kitchen: The stars of The Big Chill are suddenly ubiquitous again. To wit:
So we noticed yesterday that recent Oscar nominee William Hurt and his left-on-the-cutting-room-floor Chill costar Kevin Costner are costarring in the thriller Mr. Brooks. (Today comes news that fellow 1980s relic Demi Moore is joining them.)
Chill couple Kevin Kline and Glenn Close are both still busy in movies, of course — Kline, recently in The Pink Panther, will costar in The Great Buck Howard with Tom Hanks, while Close has signed on to reprise her ‘toon role in a sequel to the recent Hoodwinked.
Jeff Goldblum (at right) and Tom Berenger (at left) are both doing TV pilots: Goldblum as a cop who sees dead people in NBC’s Raines; Berenger in ABC’s campus drama October Road.
In TV guest spots this month, Mary Kay Place showed up on CBS’ Numb3rs and HBO’s Big Love (she’ll also check into Seattle Grace on Sunday’s Grey’s Anatomy), while JoBeth Williams (center) got shot in the leg by Kiefer Sutherland on Fox’s 24.
Even the little boy in the bathtub, Chill director Lawrence Kasdan’s son Jon, is working: He’s about to release his directorial debut, In the Land of Women, starring Adam Brody.
About the only one who’s sitting this out is Meg Tilly, who’s been MIA for a decade. Guess she just needed a big chill-out.
