Meryl Streep is arguably one of the best actresses in Hollywood today who is able to fit a variety of roles. She’s splendidly versatile with a capability of transitioning seamlessly through skill, experience and accent adaptation.
The American actress and singer is widely regarded by the media as the best actress of her generation, an accolade she humbly objects too, but with her list of works such as Out of Africa, The French Lieutenant’s Woman, and The Bridges of Madison County it comes as no surprise that Meryl Streep movies have earned her a total of 19 Academy Awards nominations.
In spite of her age, 67, she never seems to fade away from the acting industry. Her talent keeps her relevant in spite of a report by the US News that older actors are significantly underrepresented in the movies.
“The dichotomy was starkest for women: Only 27 percent of older characters in the films were female. Among lead roles, only three of 10 with older actors were women (Meryl Streep, Helen Mirren and Lin Shaye)” The report states.
Meryl Streep movies are timeless, and so is her acting, and what she’s been able to contribute in Hollywood.
According to a report by Play Bill Meryl Streep will be going to the small screen next in a Nathan Hill fiction “The Nix.”
She is said to be in negotiations with Warner Bros.
Nathan Hill fiction is said to be making big waves, even drawing the comparison to literary greats John Irving and Charles Dickens.
It is described as a “Sprawling generational tale that focuses on a hippie-era mother who gets national press exposure for throwing rocks at a conservative governor on the presidential campaign trail. Before you know it, her estranged son — a professor, aspiring novelist and general underachiever — seizes an opportunity to get himself out of debt by writing a scathing profile of his estranged mother.”
Meryl Streep’s talents will be tested once more as she is expected to play a lead role in collaboration with J.J. Abrams. And we have no doubt she’s going to nail it.
