Television has recently become the prime destination for A-list actors, and two Oscar winners – Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon – have just joined in the trend.
Nicole, 47, and Reese, 38, have signed on to play two of the three leads in Big Little Lies, a limited series from David E. Kelley.
The story comes from a book of the same title by Liane Moriarty and was co-optioned by Nicole’s Blossom Films and Reese’s Pacific Standard.
In the bestselling novel, three women see their supposedly perfect lives unravel when a murder-mystery begins during an elementary school fundraiser.
No one has been attached in the third main role yet.
With Reese and Nicole co-executive-producing in addition to acting, veteran showrunner Kelley will both produce and write the scripts.
While the project does not yet have a TV home, The Hollywood Reporter indicated that premium cable networks like HBO and streaming services on the Internet, like Netflix, were the most likely.
Kelley was an excellent choice for such a high-profile limited series – his past projects have included L.A. Law, Ally McBeal, Chicago Hope, Boston Legal, and last season’s Robin Williams sitcom, The Crazy Ones.
If the project goes forward, Nicole and Reese will join an ever-growing list of high-profile film stars taking on television projects.
Limited series have been especially appealing to those usually seen in movies.
In the past year, audiences have seen Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in True Detective (with Rachel McAdams, Colin Farrell, and Vince Vaughn replacing them for season 2), Fargo with Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman, and Extant starring Halle Berry.
Even Reese’s own ex-husband, Ryan Phillipe, is set to star in ABC’s Secrets & Lies starting in the winter of 2015.
For the two Best Actress Academy Award Winners attached to Big Little Lies, this will mark new territory.
Nicole got her start on Australian television in the 1980s, but her only major experience in the medium was in 2012’s TV movie, Hemingway & Gellhorn.
As for Reese, her movie career has mostly kept her away from television – a two-episode guest-starring role on Friends has been her most notable TV appearance to date.
The Hollywood Reporter seems to like very much those times. I’ve add to the gallery scans and shoots from the new issue.

The actress has two movies with Oscar buzz this season — she also produced ‘Gone Girl,’ but David Fincher wouldn’t cast her in it — as she ditches her perky persona for darker roles, like the adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s memoir with depictions of heroin use and drug-fueled sex: “This is one of the most important books I’ve ever read in my life”
Hoping to kill some time on a flight from Los Angeles to New York back in November 2011, Reese Witherspoon brought along a memoir penned by a relative unknown. The book’s author, Cheryl Strayed, had sent an early galley of Wild to the actress, hoping that her tale of a cathartic trek along the 1,100-mile Pacific Crest Trail in her 20s — a journey that helped bring closure to Strayed’s failed marriage and ease her grief over her mother’s death — could entice a female A-lister. Lost in the raw memoir, Witherspoon began sobbing uncontrollably.
“People were like, ‘Reese, what’s going on?’ ” she recalls of her public outburst. “Once every five years, every 10 years, you read something that moves you to your core. And I feel like this is one of the most important books I’ve ever read in my life, for so many reasons.”
Witherspoon called her agent, CAA’s Maha Dakhil, who already had been strategizing a reinvention of the Oscar winner’s stalled career, tossing all of the cutesy romantic-comedy scripts that came their way. Despite her Oscar-winning role as June Carter in Walk the Line and heavier if not well-received fare like Rendition, Witherspoon continued to be defined, for better or for worse, as Hollywood’s wholesome, sharp-tongued heroine. With its reckless protagonist and depictions of heroin use and drug-fueled sex, Wild hailed from a different universe than anything the now 38-year-old previously had tackled.
