Deadwood the movie interview

If you watch television with any regularity, you’ve seen Molly Parker. She’s been on House of Cards, the new Lost in Space, Goliath, Dexter, Shattered, and so much more, vanishing into her characters with a chameleon quality that allows someone as talented as her to be called underrated. But like so many other veterans of HBO’s greatest show, she’s probably best known for her work on Deadwood.

Parker’s Alma Ellsworth is back in Deadwood: The Movie, which finally gives the abruptly cancelled series the conclusion it deserves. The movie is streaming on HBO Go right now and it’s required viewing, giving every character a moment in the spotlight to remind you why you loved them so much to begin with. And naturally, Parker had a lot to say about returning to the part when we spoke with her.

deadwood movie production

If you’re a diehard Deadwood fan, then you might be amazed that the day has finally come. The day, of course, is the arrival of new Deadwood, in the form of a two-hour movie premiering on HBO this Friday, May 31. Yes, it’s real, despite years of promises and failed plans to bring something to light. The continuation of the three-season series inspired by the real camp in Deadwood, South Dakota has been a long time coming, and honestly felt like it would never happen for most of the intervening 13 years.
