Rachel Brosnahan goes noir for Saturday Night Live’s latest promo, dipping back in time and fashion beyond even her late ’50s-early ’60s Mrs. Maisel era.
“I had seen it many times before,” a cigarette-smoking, trench coat-wearing Brosnahan intones in the black-and-white Big Sleep-style clip, evoking both Bogie and Bacall. “But here I was. Saturday Night Live, where it all went down.
“But something was different. Where was the cast? It felt a little too dead.”
Enter Kenan Thompson, who explains what’s what and even manages to work in that longtime bit of internet nonsense Froosday. Google it.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan, a Global Citizen ambassador and anti-poverty activist, will narrate the upcoming climate change documentary, Paris to Pittsburgh, from Radical Media and Bloomberg Philanthropies. The National Geographic Documentary Films project will air worldwide tonight (Dec. 12).
“Paris to Pittsburgh shines a light on the many forgotten communities and people who have been affected by climate change in our country, as well as solutions for how we can fight back and reduce our carbon footprint,” said Brosnahan in a statement.
“I’m proud to be part of this poignant and powerful documentary, and admire the pro-active approach Bloomberg Philanthropies has taken with this project and this issue. We need meaningful change,” she added, as she cited former New York City mayor’s Michael Bloomberg’s charitable arm.
According to its boilerplate, “Bloomberg Philanthropies works in 480 cities in more than 120 countries around the world to ensure better, longer lives for the greatest number of people. The organization focuses on five key areas for creating lasting change: Arts, Education, Environment, Government Innovation, and Public Health. Bloomberg Philanthropies encompasses all of Michael R. Bloomberg’s charitable activities, including his foundation and his personal giving. In 2017, Bloomberg Philanthropies distributed $702 million (USD).”
Paris to Pittsburgh, co- directed by Sidney Beaumont and Michael Bonfiglio, chronicles climate change-fueled disasters in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. The film features stories behind climate-related recovery and resiliency, and efforts to reduce carbon emissions. It also pays particular attention to Pittsburgh, which U.S. president Donald Trump cited when he announced a withdrawal from the worldwide Paris Climate Agreement.
Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto is featured in Paris to Pittsburgh, as he affirms his support for energy efficiency goals.
At the recent Emmy Awards, Brosnahan used her acceptance speech to urge Americans to vote in the upcoming mid-term elections. “One of the things that I love most about this show, is that it’s about a woman who is finding her voice anew, which is something that is happening across the country right now… Vote, show up and bring a friend,” she said on-air after winning for best actress in a comedy.

“Extra” caught up with Rachel Brosnahan to get the scoop on Season 2 of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” which premieres today on Amazon.

‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ actresses, Rachel Brosnahan and Alex Borstein, share hidden talents, bucket lists, regrets and more with TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie on “Six Minute Marathon with Savannah.”
“She’s f—ing good!”
Those are the words Midge Maisel’s husband, Joel (Michael Zegen), uses to describe his wife (Rachel Brosnahan) as a stand-up comic in the season 1 finale of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
Throughout the first season, Midge kept her new career a secret from her entire family. But in season 2, which launched on Amazon Prime Video on Wednesday, the jig is up and Midge is forced to blend her two lives.
“The first season followed Midge discovering her voice in a brand new way after her picture perfect life fell apart and season 2 tracks the ripple effect how this explosive secret she’s sitting on,” says Brosnahan, who was nominated for a second Golden Globe on Thursday morning. “Her newfound career in stand-up comedy affects everyone around her and then in turn how that limits her well-practiced ability to compartmentalize those different parts of her life.”
Brosnahan is particularly thrilled with how her character’s relationship with her manager, Susie (Alex Borstein), has evolved in the new season.
“It’s been really wonderful exploring how their friendship becomes more intimate and their partnership becomes more real for both of them,” she says.
While the actress is honored to be nominated for her work in season 2 (especially after her Golden Globe and Emmy wins for season 1), she wasn’t exactly waiting by the phone for the Golden Globe nominations to be announced early Thursday morning.
“I’m in Prague and because of the time difference I was a little bit confused about when all this would be going down, so I actually was on a walking tour of the city and had just stepped foot inside a large Gothic cathedral when my phone started buzzing, I was trying not to look at it out of respect to the church!” she says. “But it’s great to know we’re not the only ones who are proud of it and we’re just so grateful that people continue to love the show as much as we do. The real win was to be able to play a role like this with creators and writers and directors that I admire so greatly and with this cast, I mean, come on! All of this stuff is just icing on the cake and it’s nice to be invited back to the party. It sounds so cliché but it’s so true, I’ve already won.”
Season 2 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
