Posted by Jennifer on May 6, 2023 commented by Comments Off on D’Arcy Carden ‘Would Give Anything to Work With’ ‘The Good Place’ Writers Again, Says She’s ‘in’ for Potential Spin-Off

If you fell in love with Janet on The Good Place, so did D’Arcy Carden, who plays the adorable and lovable informational assistant in the beloved series, which aired from 2016 to 2020.

Though the series only went off the air a few years ago, the star isn’t opposed to getting the gang back together again in the future. “It seems a little early for a spin-off, but here’s what I’ll say: I love Janet so much. It was such a joy to play her. I feel like she is me and I am her, and we are one,” the 43-year-old exclusively tells OK! while discussing her partnership with Citizen Watch America’s CZ Smart. “She’s such a big part of me.”

“I adore [creator of The Good Place] Mike Schur. As we’re talking, Kristen Bell has texted me. I am doing a play in New York right now, and William Jackson Harper, who played Chidi Anagonye, is also doing a play. He talked me into it by saying, ‘We can just meet after our shows and eat fries every night.’ This cast is so close. I would give anything to work with these writers again, so it would be an easy answer for me. I’ll do whatever Mike wants. If he wants to do a Janet show in one week from today, I am in. If he wants to The Good Place reboot in 10 years, I’ll do whatever he wants!”

The show, which focuses on Bell’s character, Eleanor Shellstrop, as she navigates the afterlife in the Good Place after meeting Janet and “architect” Michael (played by Ten Danson). “I loved trying to find how to make Janet relatable and have human-like qualities even though she wasn’t necessarily a full human,” she explains. “When Mike first thought of this show, he thought of this Janet character being a machine or computer. When he decided to make her human, everything changed for him and the writers. I had this fun challenge of trying to make her relatable and someone people could connect with. That was a fun challenge. I loved that character.”

The NBC series put the brunette beauty on the map, and she’s forever grateful. “I feel so lucky because it was such a good show, and I’m so proud of it,” she gushes. “It’s one of my favorite shows too. I get to be part of a show that I am also a fan of, too! I was a struggling actor for so long and opportunities like these are so rare.”

Now that Carden is starring in the Broadway series The Thanksgiving Play, she gets to interact with fans after the show, which melts her heart. “It really affected people,” she says. “You get to hear their story, like The Good Place helped me through my grandpa’s death or this helped me through the pandemic. It’s an honor that I can’t even put into words. I’m so lucky I got to be part of something that actually touched someone.”

In the meantime, since the California native is exerting a lot of energy each night, it makes sense she wanted to partner with Citizen Watch America’s CZ Smart. “I’m a wellness enthusiast. I want to be my best self when it comes to sleeping enough and eating right and taking care of my body, and I feel like there’s so much information out there that’s a little bit of a one size fits all type thing. What I love about this watch is it is made specifically for you and hones in on what makes you be your best self.”

“You can get into a rhythm where you’re doing things that are best for your body, mind and brain. Being an actor, I’m on stage at night so my sleep schedule can be strange. It’s nice when something like this tells you what to do. The app is user friendly and has so much helpful information,” she adds. “You can keep going and find out more and more details. It learns your behavior and patterns, and it’s a great way to schedule your life. It was developed using research pioneered by NASA Ames Research Center and AI models built with IBM Watson®, which is beyond my comprehension.”

Additionally, the watch scientifically determines a wearer’s Chronotype (a hereditary trait that marks an individual’s preferred timing of sleep and wake), forecasts the level of a wearer’s cognitive and physical energy 24-hours ahead with an hourly Power Score, and provides radically personalized insights and scientifically backed Power Fixes to help a wearer extend peaks or curb drops in alertness.

“It’s been so helpful and good for not just my body but my brain, too,” she shares.

Posted by Jennifer on April 26, 2023 commented by Comments Off on The Good Place Star D’Arcy Carden Reflects on NBC Comedy Series

D’Arcy Carden is one of the most versatile and charismatic actors working today. While primarily known for her work in comedy, she’s also been known to flex her dramatic chops on shows like HBO’s Barry and Amazon Prime Video’s A League of Their Own. But perhaps her biggest signature role to date was Janet, a programmed guide and knowledge bank on the NBC fantasy comedy The Good Place. Throughout its four-season run from 2016-2020, D’Arcy was able to play multiple iterations of the character flexing the type of range most actors can only dream of. While promoting her work with Citizen Watch America’s CZ Smart smartwatch, the actress spoke with Bleeding Cool about her time on the series, the camaraderie on set, and trying to meet expectations.

How ‘The Good Place’ Brought the Best Out of D’Arcy Carden
The series follows Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell), who goes to the afterlife known as “The Good Place,” a selective Heaven-like utopia run by architect Michael (Ted Danson). Not everything is as it seems like Eleanor might have been sent there by mistake, and she tries to hide her immoral improprieties. The series also starred William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, and Manny Jacinto. “I feel unbelievably lucky that I got to work on that show,” Carden said. “Mike Schur, who created the show, is a literal genius and one of the nicest people I’ve ever worked with. He’s the type of boss who surrounds himself with people he trusts. There’s this cool sort of comfort that everybody had on that set. Nobody was trying to get ahead or be the best or prove themselves. It was like everybody was just a team and everybody was there to make each other look great and do their best work. It felt easy, comfortable, and getting to…the things the writers let me do on that show, I still can’t quite comprehend [laughs].”

Carden appreciated what they let Janet get away with on the show. “I still can’t believe some of the things they let me do, and that was among those same lines,” she said. “It was like he [series creator Michael Schur] wanted people to shine, not only from the actors, but also every inch of that set, including the costume, writing, props, and everything. Oh, my gosh! The props! It was a great life lesson in that you can do something special, great, enjoyable, and lovely by surrounding yourself with people you love.”

With each season, Carden pushed herself to improve. “The most challenging thing about that show was me wanting to live up to their expectations like the writers and Mike Schur were,” she said. “I’m still obsessed, and I still think those are some of the smartest people I’ve ever met in my life. They would give me these gems in the scripts, and all I would think about is how I would put the pressure on myself to deliver. It wasn’t them saying, ‘You better deliver.’ It was me saying, ‘I want to please them.’ I was putting the pressure on myself, but it was that I really loved working on that show so much.”

One of the biggest Janet moments that sticks out comes from “Chapter 7: The Eternal Shriek” when Chidi Anagonye (Harper) and Eleanor are offered switches to kill Janet beachside, which she freely offers. The caveat is that Janet will act in self-preservation mode in a convincing fashion. “Reading that script. I remember being like, ‘This show is very special. This is weird, you know?'” Carden said. The Good Place is currently available to stream on Netflix.

Posted by Jennifer on April 15, 2023 commented by Comments Off on “A League of Their Own” Officially Renewed for Second and Final Season

A League of Their Own is rounding third and heading for home.

Prime Video has formally renewed the series adaptation for a second and final season, which is officially being billed as a “four-episode limited series.” The news confirms THR‘s report in March that A League of Their Own would indeed conclude with a very short Season 2.

“Making this show and seeing the impact it has had in the world has been an incredible joy,” co-creators Will Graham and Abbi Jacobson said in a statement. “While obviously we were hoping for 11 seasons, we’re grateful to be able to continue to tell the story of these characters and this world.”

“We’re deeply proud of the work that Abbi, Will, the cast and crew have done reimagining A League of Their Own which has produced an incredibly loyal fanbase as well as achieved numerous, well-deserved recognitions and accolades,” added Vernon Sanders, head of television at Amazon and MGM Studios. “After hearing what Abbi, Will and the writing team have planned for the new story within this wonderful series, we are excited for our fans to see what comes next.”
