Julia Roberts Eyes Lead Role in New Drama Series From Mr. Robot Creator

Julia Roberts‘ flirtation with the small screen has blossomed into a full-blown affair.

The Oscar winner — who recently signed on to headline the HBO limited Series Today Will Be Different — is nearing a deal to star in a new drama series from Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail, our sister site Deadline reports.

Written by Esmail, Homecoming is described as a political thriller that centers on three characters: a caseworker at a secret government facility (to be played by Roberts) her supervisor and a soldier. The project is based on the fictional podcast of the same name, which starred Catherine Keener, Oscar Isaac, David Schwimmer, Amy Sedaris and David Cross.

    She hasn’t been in many movies lately, will be nice to see her on the small screen. Hope she doesn’t “diva-out” like many silver screen stars once they hit tv.

      There’s very few roles for women over 40 in the movies. Meanwhile, tv is full of roles for older women. Great roles. It’s a surprise she hasn’t come to tv earlier. Actresses over 40 either come to tv or start making their own movies (both are fantastic options).

      • Paul says:

        I think it’s disgusting that there aren’t roles for actresses over 40, that’s not old!! Even if one is old, if they’re a good actor/actress, that shouldn’t matter. Always sad to see Hollywood is still in the dark ages.

      • S says:

        There’s plenty of roles for 40+. And if someone isn’t getting movie roles anymore it’s because they aren’t bankable which is strictly a business decision. This is more the fault of the general public who doesn’t pay to see their movies.
