Mary Re-teams with Aaron Paul for ‘The Parts You Lose’
This is very great news! Mary, who back in 2012 starred with Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul in the indie film Smashed, has reunited with her costar to bring us the new dramatic thriller ‘The Parts You Lose‘.
According to Deadline, the film follows the unlikely friendship formed between a young deaf boy, Wesley, and a fugitive criminal who takes refuge in an abandoned barn on the family’s rural North Dakota farm. After forming a deep bond with the man, the boy must decide where to place his allegiances when the authorities begin to close in on the fugitive. Winstead will play Wesley’s mother Gail.
Aaron will play the fugitive criminal while newcomer Danny Murphy will play the young boy. Halt and Catch Fire‘s Christopher Cantwell is directing the film and production has already begun in Winnipeg, Canada.
New Candids of Mary in L.A.
I have added some new candids of Mary out and about in Los Angeles earlier this week. You can view the photos in the gallery.
In other news, Indie Wire has predicted Mary’s new film All About Nina will be a Sundance contender early next year during the annual festival. You can read more about their film predictions here.
Mary Starring in New Film, “All About Nina”
After spending parts of my summer wondering when this was finally getting announced, it happened! Deadline has reported that Mary will be starring in a new semi-autobiographical dark comedy called “All About Nina”, opposite Oscar winner Common.
The story follows Nina Geld (Winstead), a bracingly funny and blisteringly provocative stand-up comedian whose career is taking off, but whose personal life is a near-complete disaster. To escape a difficult ex and to prepare for a prospectively life-changing audition, Nina flees to Los Angeles where she meets Rafe (Common), who challenges almost every preconception she has — including those around her own deeply troubled past.
Beau Bridges, Kate Del Castillo, Chace Crawford, Clea DuVall, Jay Mohr, Melonie Diaz, Camryn Manheim, Mindy Sterling and Angelique Cabral co-star in the film.
Mary filmed this over the summer with director Eva Vives, marking this film as her directorial debut.
They wrapped filming at the end of last month.
The Art of Self Defense to Begin Filming Later this Month
Update: Mary is NOT going to be in the film anymore. She was not announced in the cast list, but is currently filming another project which will hopefully be announced soon.
Well, here’s some exciting news! According to Project Casting, it’s been revealed that Riley’s next film, The Art of Self Defense, will be filming from September 11-October 13 in Louisville, Kentucky with Jesse Eisenberg joining the cast! Additionally, according to Casting 360, Imogen Poots is rumored to be part of the film.
Last year while Mary was still on BrainDead, she had revealed in an interview that the movie was very much in the karate world and that while she played the antagonist in Faults, it’ll be the opposite this time around.
The project between Riley and Mary was first announced in May of 2016.
You can find more info about being an extra in the film by visiting the casting links provided above.
Mary Wins Saturn Award for 10 Cloverfield Lane

New Gallery Update; Upcoming Appearances
Lots of goodies to get to so let’s jump into it! First off, I’ve updated the gallery with some new/old photos of Mary at last year’s AOL Build interview series when she was promoting 10 Cloverfield Lane. That said, she’ll be back this year to discuss FX’s Fargo on Thursday, June 8 at 11am. It is a free event, so if you’re in NYC and want to attend, you can get tickets here.
Before heading to NYC, today (June 1st), Mary will participate in a Q&A at the Landmark Theater at the Westside Pavilion in Los Angeles, CA.
And next week while in New York, Mary will head back to Late Night with Seth Meyers to continue promoting her show. Her newest episode will air on June 7th. Lots of predictions of Mary landing an Emmy nomination are happening throughout the web, so we’ll find out soon enough!
So It Goes Short is Here!
Back in 2015, Mary and her friend Justin Carlton, as well as Ryan Kattner from Honus Honus did a kickstarter for a short musical film previously titled “Studio Apartment” which was later changed to “So It Goes”. The film follows Mary’s character, who loses her creative spark, but finds it along the way after meeting a stranger.
Check out the lovely little musical below!
The short eventually went on to premiere at the Seattle Shorts Film Festival and the Napa Film Festival last year.

I have added a new(/old) portrait outtake of Mary at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival back when she was promoting the film ‘Smashed‘. Head to the gallery to check out the full-sized pic, taken by photographer Andreas Laszlo Konrath.
Mercy Street Cancelled and Domino/Deadpool 2 Casting Update
Welp…in news that is sure to be a bummer, it’s been confirmed by THR that PBS’ civil war mini series Mercy Street will not return for a third season.
PBS and the producers cited “the complicated nature of aligning production timelines and funding commitments” as the reason behind the show’s sudden end.
“We are extremely proud of both seasons of Mercy Street,” said Beth Hoppe, PBS chief programming executive. “Our talented executive producers, Lisa Wolfinger, David Zabel and David W. Zucker, brought to life an entertaining and historically accurate account of this time, along with the equally talented team of actors led by Josh Radnor as Dr. Jedediah Foster and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Nurse Mary Phinney; the directors, producers and crew who created a visually rich, high-quality series; and our sponsors and partners who helped make Mercy Street possible.”
Premiering in January 2016 alongside the final run of Downton Abbey, Mercy Street marked PBS’ first original series in more than a decade. The drama opened to 3.3 million viewers and ranked as PBS’ second highest-rated drama of 2016, behind only Downton Abbey. Season two, which kicked off in late January and wrapped March 5, drew 6.5 million viewers for the first three episodes with seven days of DVR factored in.
In other news, after much casting rumors that bounced around for months, Mary will not be playing Domino in Deadpool 2. Instead, the role will be played by Atlanta‘s Zazie Beetz.
