Sheila McCarthy on 'The Sterile Cuckoo'
Play • 57 min

There are a lot of fantastic women in Women Talking, but when Jordan first saw the film in theaters, she was immediately  struck by the powerful performances of the movie's matriarchs, one of whom is played to hilarious, heartbreaking perfection by today's guest, Sheila McCarthy. Sheila tells us about identifying with Liza Minnelli's Pookie Adams in The Sterile Cuckoo — a feeling that she had when she saw the film in theaters as a teenager. Little could she have known that she'd go on to befriend and work with Liza, and so many great stars.

Then there's One Quick Thing about newly minted EGOT winner Viola Davis. 


With Jordan Crucchiola and Sheila McCarthy
