On Fresh Air today….actress PARKER POSEY. She’s currently co-starring
in her fourth Christopher Guest comedy “For Your Consideration.” From NEW YORK magazine:

What looks like wackiness to the untrained eye is actually, in the estimation of a certifiable comic genius like Christopher Guest, the spontaneity that is crucial to the success of his improvised films—the mark of the perfect supporting player, who knows when to yield a scene to other actors and who can just as easily elicit laughs without saying anything at all. “When someone acts like they’re listening and isn’t really listening, that’s what it looks like: ‘Look, hey, I’m listening!’ ” says Guest, whose new movie casts Posey in a film-within-a-film about a family celebrating Purim in Georgia in the forties. “But when she does that, it’s not pushed—she’s actually listening. And, at least for me, it’s just mesmerizing.”
