This is How Keri Russell First Got Cast on 'The Americans'

Keri Russell is all smiles while running some errands around town on Friday (January 22) in New York City.

It was recently revealed how the 39-year-old pregnant actress first got cast on her hit show The Americans.

“I was in a room with John Landgraf, the president of [FX] and five other people, and a list of the 100 best-known television and some film actresses in Hollywood, who were in a certain age range. Everyone was studying the list, and John went, ‘Keri Russell,’” executive producer Joe Weisberg said (via Vulture).

He continued, “John had this intuition that she had played such a 100 percent different type [and] that it would be incredibly fascinating and rich to have her move in an entirely different direction.”

FYI: Keri is wearing Vans shoes.
