WHAT A PORN STAR LEARNED FROM WATCHING Masters Of Sex. I like this: “Lizzy Caplan and Michael Sheen are a lot more attractive than people they are playing.” Yeah, Masters & Johnson weren’t exactly ready for prime time, looks-wise. They look like researchers.

That’s usually true, but not always. When Separate But Equal, the terrific miniseries on Brown v. Board of Education, came out, Charlie Black told me that he felt gypped: “They got Sydney Poitier to play Thurgood, and then they found some SOB who looked just like me to play me.”
