'GLOW' Cast Virtually Reunites After Cancellation News

The cast of GLOW is getting back together again.

Following the news that the Netflix series was canceled amid the pandemic, the stars reunited for a virtual reunion on Saturday (October 10).

During their discussion, an effort created in partnership with HeadCount and #GoodToVote, the stars also encouraged viewers to vote.

“Our show is among many other things about people who sometimes feel powerless [that] do powerful things. Right now, I think the most powerful thing you can do is vote,” said Betty Gilpin.

The cast previously teased that if 250 of their fans registered to vote or made a voting plan, they would have the live Q&A — and if 1,000 joined in, Marc Maron would join.

Marc revealed that he based Sam off his own experience with coke.

“I had made some decisions about how Sam did cocaine from my own experience from doing cocaine. I walked up to Liz and Carly who were the dorkiest two women in the world, real nerds, and I just said to them, look this guy – he doesn’t carry a vile, there’s no bindle, he just does it out of a folded corner of a magazine that he loaded up with probably a pen top or a key, that’s what this guy does. They just looked at me for a second and Liz goes, ‘we’re so glad you’re here.’”

Alison Brie talked about Ruth and Sam’s first kiss.

“In the script, it was sort of like, ‘Sam turns to kiss her – she breaks away immediately’ and as we were doing it they kept having us do it [more and said], ‘Alison, don’t turn away so quickly’ and I was like, ‘oh, ok’ and finally they came out and were like ‘what if you just fully kiss,’ this was season two, and I was like ‘what, I’m gonna need to speak to Liz and Carly…’ I was more just not prepared for Ruth and Sam to go there yet but Marc took it a little personally.”

Betty discussed scheduling the reunion before the cancellation.

“We scheduled this Zoom when we thought we still had a season 4 so it feels like we invited you to our wedding and then the groom had sex with a cross-eyed cocktail waitress and now we’re all just drunk at the venue together and we’re like ‘enjoy the quiches because it’s over!’ If this wedding is now a funeral, let’s make it one of those fun great ones,” Betty also said.

Glow is unfortunately not the only show that has been cancelled after being renewed by Netflix.

Betty Gilpin Says Goodbye to 'GLOW' in Heartfelt Letter After Cancellation

Betty Gilpin is reacting to the cancellation of GLOW.

The 34-year-old actress, who played Debbie “Liberty Belle” Eagan on the comedy, wrote heartfelt goodbye letter to her show after Netflix decided to cancel it after three seasons.

“GLOW was canceled,” Betty wrote in Vanity Fair. “I am sad. It was the best job I’ll ever have. Our business is a strange mix of attempting childhood dreams to a room full of asleep people and shirking dignity for awake tomato-throwers for rent. This was one of those extremely rare times where we got to do the dream for awake people. And it didn’t disappear in an audition room or unsent email. We did it on a show, recorded it all, I swear. Thirty episodes.”

“Panicked that I was never going to be able to support myself as an actor, a decade ago I did an arc on a show where you saw my areolas before you saw my face,” Betty continued. “Avoiding eye contact with ancestors’ ghosts, I bravely signed on to press my taint against the lens every four frames for Chipotle and weed money, while the other actors did real scenes in between. But there were two lapsed playwright-genius women on the writing room staff, and they went against the bro mandate and slowly changed the part to an addled character actor instead of a blow-up doll to boost ratings. I would cry into their scripts on the subway, clinging to their subliminal I see you.”

Betty went on in her letter to thank show runners for casting and paid tribute to all of her GLOW co-stars, in particular Alison Brie.

“In a world with so much wickedness, I am so very grateful I got to spend three years in Oz,” Betty concluded. “And in a real backhanded All About Eve move, in this metaphor I’m going to cast myself as Dorothy and Alison Brie as the Scarecrow. Because of course I’m going to miss you most of all.”

This fellow GLOW star is hoping the show gets the chance to wrap up the series with a movie.

'Glow' Cancelled By Netflix After Previously Being Renewed, 'Teenage Bounty Hunters' Also Axed

Netflix has cancelled Glow after three seasons on the streaming service, after previously renewing the show over a year ago for a fourth and final season.

The reason why? The COVID-19 pandemic.

“COVID has killed actual humans. It’s a national tragedy and should be our focus. COVID also apparently took down our show. Netflix has decided not to finish filming the final season of GLOW,” series creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch said in a statement to Deadline. “We were handed the creative freedom to make a complicated comedy about women and tell their stories. And wrestle. And now that’s gone. There’s a lot of sh*tty things happening in the world that are much bigger than this right now. But it still sucks that we don’t get to see these 15 women in a frame together again.”

“We’ll miss our cast of weirdo clowns and our heroic crew. It was the best job,” they continued, adding, “Register to vote. And please vote.”

The fourth season of Glow was filming when production was shut down in March due to the pandemic.

In addition, Teenage Bounty Hunters was also cancelled after only one season.

Glow is unfortunately not the only show that has been cancelled after being renewed by Netflix.

People Are Loving Betty Gilpin's Reaction to Her Emmy Awards 2020 Nomination

Betty Gilpin is reacting to her Emmys nomination – and people are loving what she had to say.

The 34-year-old actress was nominated in the category of Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her work in Netflix‘s GLOW, and issued a statement after the announcement on Tuesday (July 28).

“To the Television Academy — how dare you. I really can’t stress enough how much of a threat this nomination is to my current quarantine brand of pasta and sad,” she said.

“In the Time Before, being born with a healthy protective emotional wall missing meant I got to channel that into pretend time in exchange for health insurance and claps,” she went on to say.

“Today, apparently here in the apocalypse, these skills were about as meaningful as a worm’s hymn in a canyon. I’d like to thank the cast and crew, and the Academy, and seasonal depression, and honestly Nathan Lane, and before this nomination phoenixes me out of mediocrity and I explode into ribbons just real quick the cops who killed Breonna Taylor still have not been arrested.”

She was previously nominated in 2018 and 2019 for the category in the same role.

Ethan Suplee Shows Off His Fit Physique at 'The Hunt' Premiere With Hilary Swank & Betty Gilpin

Ethan Suplee hits the red carpet for the premiere of his new film, The Hunt, held at ArcLight Cinemas on Monday night (March 9) in Hollywood.

The 43-year-old actor showed off his transformation at the event, alongside co-stars Hilary Swank, Betty Gilpin, Glenn Howerton, Steve Coulter, Sylvia Grace Crim, Ike Barinholtz and pal Juliette Lewis.

The Hunt is about 12 strangers, who wake up in a clearing and don’t know where they are, or how they got there. They don’t know they’ve been chosen – for a very specific purpose – The Hunt.

Ethan recently opened up about his weight loss journey, revealing that he’s lost about 1,000 pounds throughout it all.

FYI: Hilary is wearing an Elie Saab dress.

'The Hunt' Gets New Release Date After Being Pulled in 2019 Over Mass Shootings

The Hunt is getting a release date nearly six months after it was supposed to debut in theaters.

If you don’t remember, the Universal movie was pulled from the release slate in 2019 after some mass shootings occurred. It was unclear at the time if the film would ever be released, but now, you can expect it to hit theaters on March 13, 2020.

Here’s a synopsis: Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don’t know where they are, or how they got there. They don’t know they’ve been chosen… for a very specific purpose … The Hunt. In the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory, a group of elites gathers for the very first time at a remote Manor House to hunt ordinary Americans for sport. But the elites’ master plan is about to be derailed because one of The Hunted, Crystal (Betty Gilpin), knows The Hunters’ game better than they do. She turns the tables on the killers, picking them off, one by one, as she makes her way toward the mysterious woman (Hilary Swank) at the center of it all.

Ike Barinholtz, Justin Hartley, and Emma Roberts also star.

Here’s what the director of The Hunt had to say about the film’s cancellation last year.
