Filming Update: Rosamund Pike in Barney's Version

Here's an interesting article by Jacob Richler for macleans.ca about Rosamund Pike's Barney's Version film, which she's currently filming. It mentions Ros and her character Miriam.

Simone's take on Barney's Version

The scene called for the three of them to be having a casual match in the background, while, in the foreground, Barney and his father Izzy (Hoffman) had a chat about life over Scotch and cigars.
