Kyra Sedgwick talks about casting Jennifer Beals in Proof

jennifer beals in Proof

On this interview on the Hollywood Reporter producer Kyra Sedgwick talks about how hard it was to find the lead in Proof, until Jennifer walked in….

I’m so proud of Proof. When I left [The Closer], TNT gave me a producing deal, and I was to bring five projects and they picked this one up. My mandate in my head was I wanted it to be female-driven lead with a woman in her 40s because that was the gift I had been given, and I really wanted to pass that along. We had a really hard time casting it, and then in walks Jennifer Beals.
