- Public Events: President Clinton Hosts The Millennium Network Event
Hollywood has been rallying to help earthquake/tsunami victims in Japan any way they can but on Thursday actress Rose McGowan admitted to a feeling of helplessness concerning the matter.
“My stand-in on the movie I’m doing right now, she’s half Japanese, her whole family’s from Sendai and four of them are missing,” Rose said at a Millennium Network event in Los Angeles. “It’s brutal to watch her go through it.”
The Millennium Network helps connect people under the age of 45, getting them involved with the Clinton Foundation which has helped millions of HIV/AIDS victims by giving them the opportunity to obtain treatment.
Despite her donations to the Red Cross, Rose admitted to harboring a feeling of impotence, wishing she could do more.
On Wednesday, March 23, Law & Order: SVU will have their newest big-name guest star appear on the show in Rose McGowan, who is set to play a popular woman at a swingers’ club by the name of Cassandra Davina. As for why Benson and Stabler are at the club, it has a little bit to do with a stabbing victim who has some rather strong connections to the organization.
Early on in a conference call with reporters, McGowan (along with writer Dan Truly) explained how exactly the story’s sexuality ended up working on a network where censorship is still present ot a large degree:
“I don’t think the network limitations was the part that was challenging — I was grateful for those … Dan Truly is kind of a genius in the way he [approached] it. You will see that ‘bombshell’ has another new meaning.”
Truly agreed, and actually said that the network actually enabled them to take a fun sort of creative direction into what happens in swingers’ clubs. (McGowan said there were “no similarities” between herself and the character, which she said was enticing to play.)
