Netflix is rounding out the cast for The Kominsky Method, a 10-episode single-camera comedy series from Chuck Lorre, starring Michael Douglas, Alan Arkin and Nancy Travis. Sarah Baker (Young Sheldon, Big Little Lies) is set as a series regular and Susan Sullivan (Castle, Dharma & Greg), Emily Osment (Hannah Montana, Young & Hungry), Graham Rogers (Quantico, Ray Donovan), Ashleigh LaThrop (Fifty Shades movies), Jenna Lyng Adams, Melissa Tang (Mom, The Big Bang Theory), and Casey Brown will recur.
Written by Lorre, The Kominsky Method centers on Sandy Kominsky (Douglas), an actor who years ago had a brief fling with success and is now a revered Hollywood acting coach. Arkin plays his long-suffering agent and friend, Norman. Nancy Travis also stars. Osment is Theresa, a twentysomething student in Sandy Kominsky’s acting class. Underneath her sweet exterior is a formidable actress who can’t wait to show Sandy, and the world, what she’s capable of.
On Young & Hungry, Betty White guest-stars as the quick-witted Ms. Wilson, who has a tendency to slip in sexual innuendos and provocative language whenever she can. Offscreen, costar Emily Osment says the role isn’t much of a stretch for the 95-year-old Hollywood icon. “She’s so funny and crass,” says Osment, who plays chef Gabi on the Freeform series. “She’s a legend! I still can’t believe I got to work with her.” Much like their characters on the show, Osment and White’s relationship on set quickly took an unexpected turn. “She called me a bitch one time, which I loved,” the Los Angeles native, 25, tells Us Weekly. “She was like, ‘Honey, you’re what we like to call a bitch [because] you’ve got blonde hair and blue eyes.’ She has blonde hair and blue eyes as well, so she was like, ‘We like to call ourselves that.’”
Osment reveled in the unconventional compliment from the actress. “I think I’m in a bitch club with Betty White!” she jokes. “To hear such a sweet, sweet woman who’s in her 90s use the type of language she uses — she’s hysterical.” On the series, now in its fifth season, Osment understands fans’ frustration with Gabi’s off-and-on relationship with her boss, Josh (Jonathan Sadowski) — but hints that the ups and downs will be worth the wait. “You want to see someone having turmoil or falling in love or out of love, that’s what makes good TV,” she explains, noting another tumultuous onscreen romance. “When we all watched Friends, we wanted Ross and Rachel to be together so bad,” she says. “They would get together for a few episodes and then they would break up because that’s the fun part: the chase.” Continue reading
