“Now, you may think you know the story, but there’s one more layer of this blooming onion left to peel back.” No, this is surprisingly not a line from Rian Johnson’s Knives Out sequel, Glass Onion. It’s a quote straight from the newly launched trailer of his Peacock collection, Poker Face. What can we are saying, the person loves references and Easter eggs.
Created by Johnson, Poker Face pays homage to old-school thriller exhibits like Columbo. Natasha Lyonne performs on line casino hostess Charlie Cale, who has an uncanny means to smell out liars. She is pressured to go on the run, and with every episode, turns into embroiled in a “case-of-the-week” homicide thriller.
During Poker Face’s panel on the Television Critics Association’s (TCA) 2023 winter press tour, Peacock dropped a model new look contained in the present. It includes a shit ton of celebrity appearances. Some of them embrace Adrien Brody, Benjamin Bratt, Stephanie Hsu, Judith Light, Lil Rel Howrey, Jameela Jamil, Tim Meadows, Hong Chau, Simon Helberg, Ellen Barkin, and Tim Blake Nelson. This doesn’t cowl all of them. And don’t fear, Johnson’s favourite, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, is a part of the record.
Lyonne may also reunite together with her Orange Is The Black co-star Dascha Polanco and Russian Doll’s Chloë Sevigny right here. Let’s not overlook, she made a short cameo in Glass Onion as nicely alongside one other shocking lineup of celebrity visitor stars. (Trust Johnson to make all these little connections).
The 10-episode Poker Face will start with 4 episodes on January 26, with the remaining episodes airing each Thursday on Peacock.
