    How does she get roles?

    • Bart Crowe

      I assume it is a Scientololgy thing. She is absolutely dreadful in everything.

      • kevinhorror

        Actually she was terrific in the final season of Damages with Glenn Close and Rose Byrne. She was really great playing a serious role with zero goofball comedy.

        • Bart Crowe

          That is on my long list of shows I need to watch but probably never will.

  • Simon Allen

    Odd, but I will watch with interest because …..why the hell not ?

  • macguffin54

    I don’t don’t have a problem with her, per se, but isn’t she more comedy and, more importantly—Scientology.

    • Christopher Nickerson

      Comedy called, it is very offended you lumped it in with her

  • Kyle Ord

    No thanks

    She’s a Scientologist

    And they abuse their lower members and think gay people are as bad as pedophiles

    She can eff off

    • Dennis Chenier

      I didn’t know that. I just became a little less excited as a result of her casting.

    • Richard

      You dont know a thing about her and dont act like you do. Gay people are always thinking theres witchhunt after them. Newsflash people dont give a damn if you like it up the ass.

  • Dennis Giles

    Scott Gimple kills good fast paced scripts and replaces them with lonnngggg drawn out bore fests.
    Die mother fuker !

    • llcc1103

      spot on

    • Matt Miller

      This show was going good. I hope it doesn’t get ruined

  • REC03

    Hope she doesn’t try to convert the rest of the cast to Scientology….

    • IWC-3PO

      Alanna Masterson (Tara on TWD) is also a Scientologist.

  • GunsOfNavarone

    I really hope the quality of Fear doesn’t suffer because they’ve managed to better the walking dead (by current standards-wtf happened), so it will be a shame if this also turns into a shitshow.

  • Richard

    Just because you are part of a religion doesn’t mean you have to go all in or not at all.

    • Kyle Ord

      Scientology is more of a cult then a religion.

      There are many many documentaries out here proving it

      Either you want to be educated about it, or you don’t

      It’s not my problem

      Facts matter

      • Fred Hopkins

        Here we go. Just like being a wiccan used to be a cult now it’s a religion. Now you say Scientology is a cult don’t worry it’s a religion. Remember the good old days when it was straight forward? It’s a jungle not a rain forest. It’s a cult not a religion. They are retarded not mentally challenged. They are handicapped not disabled. Now if you don’t think like the modern world you are a hater. You will be soon be called a hater for your scientology remarks even if they are crazy nuts.

    • kevinhorror

      In Scientology, you kind of have to go all in, or they consider you an SP Suppressive Person and you get written up within the cult. You should do a little bit more investigating regarding Scientology.

    It took a few seasons, but I’m finally truly onboard with this series with both feet in the water, rather than reluctantly checking in to see if it picks up. This last season was awesome and Dillahunt will hopefully add a lot. Great actor.
