Lorraine Bracco And Penny Marshall To Play Lesbian Lovers In Mulaney

Lorraine Bracco

Lorraine Bracco and Penny Marshall have just signed up to join the Fox show Mulaney, where they are set to play a lesbian couple. The comedy show is based on the life of John Mulaney, who is writing and starring in it.

It will portray an up-and-coming comedian who is influenced by his boss (Martin Short), a number of roommates and, of course his neighbors. Lorraine Bracco and Penny Marshal, who are playing the lesbian couple, meet Mulaney through his neighbor Oscar, played by Elliot Gould, who they are friends with.

Bracco and Marshall aren’t the first movie icons who are opting to head to television. In recent years Liev Schrieber, Kevin Bacon, and Jeff Daniels have all chosen to appear in TV shows, many of which enjoyed great success.

The pair have heaps of movie experience, but Mulaney will be one of their first stabs at the small screen. As well as that, Marshall is already renowned as an experienced director and indeed one of the most successful female directors.

She directed some massive Hollywood blockbusters including Big, A League of Their Own and Jumpin’ Jack Flash, as well as many others. You may also remember Marshall from the time she directed the classic TV comedy Laverne and Shirley.

For her part, Lorraine Bracco has enjoyed an illustrious career, having played multiple roles in gangster movies over the years. She portrayed a gangster’s wife in Goodfellas and was Tony Soprano’s psychiatrist in The Sopranos.

Mulaney is due to executive-produce the show along with Lorne Michaels, David Miner, Dave Becky, Andrew Singer and Andy Ackerman.

There is no shortage of anticipation for the new show which is due to hit screens sometime in 2014. We’ll keep you posted as to when precisely that is going to be.

    What was once novelty has become oversaturation. We get it guys, you want us unwashed masses to accept the alternative lifestyle.
    I don't like brussel sprouts. I don't want them eradicated, I'll even cook some for you if you come to my house if you want them. But if you keep shoving in front of my face every night for dinner when I just want to enjoy my steak, you have moved way beyond f***in' ANOYING!

    Enough is enough. This is stupid and annoying. Why so much gay garbage. When did such a small percentage of the population become so important. The only reason so many are supporting gays in the first place is to anger Christians and conservatives. The people who support them know they're sick but because it is the oppisite of the conservative viewpoint they support them, not because they actually care about gays. The worst enemy of a gay person are those who support their homosexuality because they are lying. A gay persons best friend is those who are trying to change them because at least they are being honest.

    re these 2 lesbians or just playing the part. I assume they are as there are plenty of lesbians that would be happy to do it. For example Rosie and Ellen.
