Jeff Goldblum and J.J. Abrams together on the same red carpet? Somewhere the geek universe was smiling. I was anyway. The eclectic duo were just two of a bevy of stars who walked the red carpet of the iconic New York City Ziegfeld Theatre last night (Nov. 7) for the premiere of Morning Glory, a new comedy that centers on the dysfunction behind a morning television show.
The film centers on Rachel McAdams, a hard-working producer, who tries to revive a morning show in spite of her twos feuding veteran anchors, respectively played by Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton. The three leads were joined on the red carpet Sunday evening by co-stars Patrick Wilson, “Modern Family’s” Ty Burrell, John Pankow, among others, and the film’s director Roger Michell (Notting Hill), and screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada). Many television personalities were also on hand, curious if the movie nailed the real morning show dynamic.
