Kenny Leon, Phylicia Rashad star in ‘Same Time, Next Year’ (2014)
The fresh, touching, and hilariously funny story of lovers Doris (Phylicia Rashad) and George (Kenny Leon), married – to other people – who meet by chance while on separate business trips in 1951. The pair vow to rendezvous each year in the same place, and end up finding a connection that transcends the initial spark of passion to span a quarter of a century’s worth of love, loss, joy, conflict, but ultimately a common ground that sustains their unique friendship. Same Time, Next Year is a delicious tryst about the complexities of human relationships and the phenomenon of love.
“We still live in a binary world in which the idea is imposed on us that there are only two genders; we need to change that perception.”

“She moves when she wants to move,” the Emmy-nominated actress tells TheWrap on new Drinking With the Stars episode, presented by Jose Cuervo
Uzo Aduba, who plays Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren on Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black,” discussed her character’s quest for love in prison and her hidden confidence in the latest episode of “Drinking with the Stars,” presented by Jose Cuervo.
After a failed attempt at romance with Piper (Taylor Schilling) in the first season, Suzanne’s need for affection reappears on Season 2 when she’s befriended by power hungry, veteran inmate Vee (Lorraine Toussaint).
“It was intense because you started to realize how desperate Suzanne is for love and what she will in fact do for it,” Aduba told TheWrap’s senior television writer Jethro Nededog.
But despite Suzanne’s close relationship with Vee, Aduba reveals that her character is more independent than most people think.
“When I think about Suzanne, I think she knows completely who she is,” Aduba said, adding that it’s the viewers and the other characters on the show that “misjudge” or “underestimate” her.
