The Big C
Laura Linney’s Showtime series is recruiting Kathy Najimy & Isaac Mizrahi to help wrap up the characters’ storylines.
For three seasons, we watched as Cathy Jamison’s (Laura Linney) life was turned upside down by her sudden cancer diagnosis, and now it’s time to say goodbye. Showtime announced Nov. 8 that The Big C will end with a four-part event titled The Big C: Hereafter — and it sounds like it’s going out with a bang!
We wish you a happy birthday Cynthia! Best wishes to your family!
Cynthia, we loved in Sex and the City and on Broadway! We wish you on a very special day.
Season two gets off to an amazing start as Cathy finds an exciting new way to deal with her cancer — weed! Is this the right Showtime show?
The episode starts off with Cathy Jamison (Laura Linney) on a jog with her brother Sean Tolkey (John Benjamin Hickey) in their neighborhood of a Minneapolis suburb. Cathy has images of Marlene (Phyllis Somerville) — who committed suicide at the end of season one, Cathy’s son Adam (Gabriel Basso), with a needle, and Cathy’s oncologist Dr. Todd Mauer (Reid Scott) blowing kisses. Cathy wakes up in fright in her hospital bed from the “nightmare.” Her husband Paul (Oliver Platt) is sitting in the chair next to her and is startled when he sees Cathy awake and sweating. The next scene flashes to Cathy at Dr. Mauer’s office. He advises Cathy there is not much else she can do regarding her stage four melanoma and she should smoke some pot.
HollywoodLife.com chatted with the two stars of Showtime’s new fall comedy about how they manage to make us LOL about melanoma!
Stage four cancer isn’t something we’d usually laugh about, but Showtime’s new show, The Big C, is changing that! Starring award-winning actresses Laura Linney and Gabourey Sidibe, The Big C is a comedy about an uptight school teacher from Minneapolis who’s finally living life now that she’s battling life-threatening melanoma.
