Diane Keaton, who can do no wrong in my book, is going ahead with the troubled “Tilda” series for HBO.
This is the series “inspired by” the contentious and willful Hollywood gossip blogger Nikki Finke.
Diane Keaton? We loved her as Annie Hall, Louise Bryant, as Kay in “The Godfather” movies and Erica in “Something’s Gotta Give.” Diane Keaton plays nice, and ditzy.
“This is the mean Diane Keaton,” she told me last night at the premiere of “Morning Glory.”
Can she do it, really? “I can do it,” she said, grinning from ear to ear. “You better believe it.”
Tilda is the bad witch, someone who wrecks people’s lives, and has no conscience. Diane Keaton is ready for it.
As for her spunky and lovable turn as Colleen, the long time anchor of a little seen morning show in New York, Keaton didn’t want to take the credit. “It’s all Roger Michell,” she said.
Wait til you see her in a sumo wrestler’s outfit.
