Ray Liotta, Mamie Gummer, Billy Magnussen, and Rosemary Harris have all joined the already sprawling ensemble cast of David Milch’s new HBO drama, The Money. They join Nathan Lane, Brendan Gleeson, David Harewood, Laila Roberts, and Dominique McElligott, among others.
The Money tells the story of James Castman (Gleeson), a super-rich media mogul who uses his influence to push around his family, just like super-rich media moguls are known to do. Liotta will play George Archer, a wealthy Wall Street tycoon who appears to be untouchable (but probably isn’t, knowing Milch). Gummer will play Tricia Castman, the old money daughter-in-law of Gleeson’s character who’ll probably have some dark secret that she’s been forced to keep quiet due to her family’s prominent position. Boardwalk Empire’s Patrick Kennedy will play her TV husband, John Castman.
Into The Woods prince Magnussen will play Greg Castman, the mogul’s middle and favorite son. And Harris will play Ellen Knox, the smart and funny mother of James Castman’s wife Ruth, who’ll be played by Roberts.

From writer/director Liz W. Garcia, “The Lifeguard” tells the story of Leigh (Kristen Bell), who flees to her suburban hometown when her career and love life both come crashing down. Once there, she moves into her old room with her parents, hangs out with old friends, and reclaims her former job as a condo-complex lifeguard, without ever thinking about the affect her actions will have on those closest to her.
At the film’s press day, actress Mamie Gummer (who plays one of Leigh’s hometown best friends) spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about why she wanted to be a part of this film, how she related to her character, what made Liz Garcia such a great first-time feature director, how effortless it was to work with Kristen Bell, that she’d like to keep exploring comedy, and how much she’s enjoyed her time on The Good Wife.
Collider: How did this come about for you?
MAMIE GUMMER: I was sent the script, and I really loved it and wanted to be in it. I was very happy to discover that (writer/director) Liz [Garcia] also wanted me to be in it. We agreed on that point. And everything else just came very easily. It flowed pretty breezily. I felt that the story, the landscape and that character was something that I could relate to. Growing up in New England and having a similar adolescence and upbringing, I felt like I could honestly help to tell that story. And I was just really grateful to Liz for writing it, taking the initiative, and stepping up as a female director, helming it and making it happen.
Is this a character that you found yourself easily relating to and identifying with, or did you have to figure her out a little bit?
GUMMER: A bit of both. When you meet her in the movie, she’s at loose ends, but she’s more rigid. Her life is routinized and regulated, in a very comforting way that I am wholly unfamiliar with. She’s a suburban woman with a steady job, and that’s the opposite of being an actor. She’s at odds in her relationship and her marriage. That’s what we see of her, and I think many people have experienced that.
What was it that sold you on Liz Garcia, as a first-time director?
GUMMER: She just seemed wholly and completely capable. It was a great way to spend a summer. I love the energy of an independent film set. No one is there for the money. Everyone is there ‘cause they really want to be there. It makes all the difference in the world. It’s without ego and agenda, other than just wanting to fulfill a creative dream. And it was pretty dreamy.
Is it important to you to do films like this and remind yourself why you love acting?
GUMMER: Yeah, definitely! I don’t think I’m ever really going to run the risk of disappearing into a Marvel franchise. I just don’t know how I would fit into a catsuit. So, I take other jobs to subsidize this kind of thing and make this possible.

If you can’t tell Meryl Streep’s daughters apart, it’s not your fault. You’re not alone! Two thirds of the talented Gummer clan (who go by the surname of their father, sculptor Don Gummer) have been popping up regularly on TV and the movies, not to mention in theater, and while it’s easy to point at a screen and knowingly say, “That’s Meryl Streep’s daughter,” it’s no great accomplishment if you can’t take it to the next level and say whether it’s Mamie or Grace. So with one of the similar-looking siblings showing up regularly on The Newsroom right now, sowing confusion anew, it’s time to help with a cheat sheet.
Mamie Gummer, 30

Mamie went on ASMALLWORLD’s Relaunch Weekend trip on May 10 in Marrakech, Morocco. She was joined by Zoe Kazan and Dianna Agron for the three-day excursion provided by the private travel & lifestyle club, where like-minded people come together to share travel advice and experiences.
The exotic weekend adventure included trips to the medina, a dinner at a traditional Moroccan restaurant in the heart of the town square, with belly dancers and snake charmers, a poolside luncheon with camels, a falcon show and a royal salute on horseback, and another sunset dinner in the Moroccan country side with traditional Moroccan musical troupes.
Big thanks to Renee for donating the photos!
