All those having Sandra Oh withdrawals (come back to us, Cristina Yang!) can catch her in her new movie Tammy, which hits theaters on Wednesday.
The film stars comic superwoman Melissa McCarthy as Tammy, a woman who gets fired from her crappy job, totals her clunker car and finds her husband cheating on her with the neighbor in her own house. She hits the road with her alcoholic, foul-mouthed grandmother (Susan Sarandon) and they meet up with her cousin Lenore (Kathy Bates), who is married to Susanne, played by Oh.
Oh talks about the film in this video:
Bates told PrideSource what it was like to work with the Grey’s Anatomy alum. “I’m just absolutely in love with Sandra, and let me just say that she really brought our relationship to bloom,” she said. “She brought a lot of love and warmth, and it was her idea to have wedding rings – because of course! – which I hadn’t thought about, and also, really, to think that our relationship is the healthiest relationship in the movie.”
Check out KoreAm’s cover story on Sandra Oh. She currently stars in a stage revival of ‘Death of a Maiden,’ performed at Chicago’s Victory Gardens Theatre through July 20.
