Chris Rock Isn’t Alone: When Comedians Get Serious – E! Online

Chris Rock isn’t laughing.

After years of cracking audiences up with his comedy and movies, the Saturday Night Live veteran is getting serious with his starring role in the long-awaited fourth installment of FX’s Fargo, creator Noah Hawley‘s hit anthology adaptation of the Coen brothers’ classic film.

Premiering on Sunday, Sept. 27, after a pandemic-induced delay—there were just two episodes left to film before COVID shut down the industry back in March—the new season, set in 1950s Kansas City, finds Rock playing mob boss Loy Cannon. Not only is it the first meaty dramatic role in his career, but it also marks the first-ever time he’s starred in a scripted series ever. Talk about a learning curve.

As he told The Hollywood Reporter, the job required more from him than he’d initially expected, forcing him to set aside plans to work on new stand-up material until filming

Still closed, Baltimore County senior centers keep seniors connected online

Shirley Hewitt did not expect to spend the early days of her retirement homebound in the throes of a public health crisis.

The 74-year-old dreaded the thought of a life devoid of many obligations. Before the pandemic, she avoided spending time in the Dundalk home she once shared with her late mother, preferring to keep busy by volunteering at her church, taking art classes, playing the slots or organizing activities with the Red Hat Society.

She retired from her part-time job in April, shortly after she began self-isolating in mid-March.

“For a couple months there, it was like I was in this house alone with the cat all day, every day,” Hewitt said. “I don’t usually get depressed, but I had my moments.”

That was before Baltimore County’s senior centers shifted programming to a virtual setting — a learning curve for all involved, but one that Hewitt says has made
