The Americans is a Serious Show, The Press Tour is a Delight

22 Mar

The Americans returns next week for its final season, which means press tour! This includes last Friday’s New York premiere, an appearance by the cast and creatives at the Newseum in Washington D.C. earlier this week, a Variety cover story and a joint interview with Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (which you can watch below).

For a show that is so steeped in serious life or death material it is always a delight to see the stars shed those all consuming worried expressions for cracking up on the red carpet. Keri Russell’s polka dot Johanna Ortiz is perfectly ’80s inspired considering the period The Americans is set in and also reminds me of the dancing lady emoji if she ever changed her dress color. It is all fun and games until Stan finds out. I’m feeling a little nauseous just thinking about that inevitable scene.

For excellent behind the scenes interviews there is Jen Chaney’s piece over at Vulture, which highlights some of the ways they keep things light while shooting this material. For the L.A. Times, Meredith Blake includes a fabulous Margo Martindale anecdote in her article (and a delightful photo) and the aforementioned Variety cover story by Cynthia Littleton goes deep on the final season.

And if you want to know about Keri Russell’s lipstick from the Washington D.C. event (you know I do), then The Cut has all the answers (and you should also follow make-up artist Tina Turnbow on Instagram for more BTS secrets).

Last night the pair appeared on Colbert to promote the show. This might be my favorite look so far from Keri Russell during this press tour. Such a great polka dot dress; perfect for the start of Spring (let’s pretend the current weather is not snow)

And while they didn’t give away too much about the final season—other than the sweater fabric evolution (which you know I am more than interested in)—this is an adorable interview with the pair. I might be referring to Philip as “squishy” in my reviews in the coming weeks.

The Americans returns Wednesday, March 28. Get ready for lots of devastating moments as this TV Ate My Wardrobe fave comes to an end.
