Juno Trivia

Just like nursing a baby, ironing, and folding laundry, there is only one way to run on a treadmill: while watching a movie. And since my big race is coming up in a few weeks, I am spending a lot of time on the treadmill lately. (I'm miserably not close to being ready for 10 miles!) Current treadmill movie: Juno. I think Juno is such a clever movie. Witty writing, great nuances. Edgy yet tender. Juno's dad is played by J.K. Simmons, who I happen to love. He used to be on Law&Order. Do you know who he played? Now he's on a show on TNT called The Closer. Do you know what lovely actress plays the closer? And do you know who she is married to? Also, in Juno, Paulie Bleeker is played by Michael Cera. Do you know what wildly popular (though cancelled) TV show he was on that is now being made into a movie? And finally, Juno is played by the darling Ellen Page. Do you know where she hails from? (Hint: along with my Irish heritage (Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!), Ellen Page's home is also a part of my family history.)

Holy corned beef! Good luck with all that!

He played the police psychologist (do I have to know his name?). Kyra Sedgewick. Kevin Bacon. Arrested Development (I cheated on that one). Nova Scotia.

The only thing I know is that Ellen Page is a Haligonian!

The only one I knew was Arrested Development. I LOVE(d) that show. Didn't know that they're making a movie, how cool!

I know most of these!
1.He played Dr. Skoda (sp?). I'm actually watching Law & Order right now!
2. Kyra Sedgwick. I have loved her since Hearts and Souls! She is married to Kevin Bacon. They are really cute together!
3. Arrested Development.
4. I don't know for sure, but guessing from your family roots I would say Nova Scotia.

I think JK Simmons played a psychiatrist on Law and Order (?). On the Closer, he plays opposite Kyra Sedgewick who is married to Kevin Bacon (I don't get that couple at all). Michael Cera was on Arrested Development. I think Ellen Page is from Canada.

Those are my best answers without the help of Google. Good luck with your race!

I'm a TV junkie, so I know most of these! J.K. Simmons was the psychologist on L&O and now he's Chief Pope on The Closer. Michael Cera was on Arrested Development. I don't know where EP is from, I just know that she's Canadian.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Ok I know the answer to a few of the questions, J.K. Simmons is on the Closer with Kira Sedgwick and her husband is Keven Bacon. Look on my blog though because I have a Trivia question for you.

Katie said...

Well, of course I know that Michael Cera is from Arrested Development. Who could ever forget little George Michael or (Bland and her Mayon-egg, for that matter)?

By the way, hi - I'm a blog-stalker. I noticed your blog's name a couple of months ago because of its allusion to Anne. Mine is called Ingleside, so obviously I am a fan. Fan of you too!

That movie kills me at the end. Having an adopted daughter and seeing a birthmom place her baby in my arms... I have seen it in real life... such a good movie, really good portrayal at the end!
