Start spreading the news, the long wait is finally over for season 2 of “The Morning Show”!
“Extra’s” Rachel Lindsay caught up with Julianna Margulies and Billy Crudup to talk about what to expect.
Julianna joins as anchor Laura Peterson, while Billy returns as eccentric series director Cory Ellison.
Rachel asked if Laura was modeled after someone, and Julianna replied, “We tried to mix Diane Sawyer on her, but with a little Rachel Maddow grain.”
How is she going to make things happen? Margulies explained, “What I think what they’ve done so brilliantly this season is you have these two amazing leading women, and instead of bringing in a man to upset that balance, they brought a wife. And I love it. “
Julianne enjoyed working with co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, saying, “It’s very rare to be on a show produced by the two stars who are women. It was a nice hug because there is just a sweetness to it.
Crudup also shared what he loves most about Ellison, saying, “I love the impenetrable part of his personality that keeps audiences – and the folks on the show – from guessing what his motives are.”
Rachel insisted, “I would work for Cory,” and Billy replied, “I appreciate that. Me too. I think he’s super smart. But I would watch my back and have a life insurance policy.
Watch “The Morning Show” in all its glory September 17th on Apple TV +.
