Lizzy Caplan prepared for today’s Emmys announcement like anyone would: by reading her horoscope. Which didn’t give her the most hope. “They were all bad!” Caplan told EW. “And then I just started laughing and realized, I really need to get a life.”

Lizzy Caplan talks sexism in Hollywood, makes sweet music with Reggie Watts on 'Comedy Bang! Bang!' -- EXCLUSIVE
Lizzy Caplan is funny, sexy, and seriously talented. She can do it all — and has — in a career that’s spanned from Mean Girls to Masters of Sex. But maybe she’s a little too good.
That’s what Comedy Bang! Bang! host Scott Aukerman posits when the actress stops by his IFC show on Thursday. Does she ever wonder if maybe there are too many complex, dynamic roles for women in Hollywood? Maybe the ladies better slow it down and give the boys a chance.
“Boys can be funny,” Caplan reasons, cheekily poking fun at the lack of opportunities for women in the mainstream comedy landscape. “I just think maybe they haven’t had the opportunity to be funny for as long as girls have,” she adds, trying not to laugh.
Sidekick Reggie Watts has another theory why men haven’t been given a fair shake in comedy, and it has to do with biology. Check out his reasoning — and the full exclusive clip — below: READ FULL STORY
The first look at Masters of Sex season 2 is here!
Showtime’s drama left off with Dr. Masters (Michael Sheen) showing up at Virginia’s (Lizzy Caplan) door and declaring, “There is something I can’t live without: It’s you.” That statement’s consequences are sure to be felt by nearly every character this year. Viewers get a quick look at all the regulars in this 70-second teaser, which first debuted on The Hollywood Reporter.
Besides Masters and Virginia, we see Masters’ wife, Libby (Caitlin FitzGerald), Lillian DePaul (Julianne Nicholson), Barton and Margaret Scully (Beau Bridges and Allison Janney), and even the apparent return of Betty DiMello (Anneleigh Ashford), the prostitute who helped out Masters’ study in the early episodes of the first season. Not yet present: Sarah Silverman, who joins the cast this season.

In Showtime’s Masters of Sex, Michael Sheen’s William Masters and Lizzy Caplan’s Virginia Johnson research the science of human sexuality — so the show should be right at home on pay cable.
But just how racy will things get? Now we have a better idea, since Showtime has posted the pilot to YouTube more than a week before the series premieres. Watch it online now:

Call Salt-N-Pepa: Showtime has decided it’s time to talk about sex.
Masters of Sex, starring Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, tells the story of real-life pioneers of the science of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson, whose controversial — to say the least — research helped kick off the sexual revolution. For those interested, Masters and Johnson’s work picked up after Alfred Kinsey’s research (which was the subject of its own 2004 movie, starring Liam Neeson).
“He is a brilliant scientist out of touch with his own feelings, and she is a single working mother ahead of her time. The series chronicles their unusual lives, romance, and unlikely pop culture trajectory,” per Showtime. And, in case the title didn’t give it away, their “unusual lives” are obviously full of NSFW moments. You’ve been warned. Watch below:
Homeland wraps up its second season on Dec. 16, but Showtime is hoping viewers of its Emmy-winning thriller will keep tuning in on Sunday nights when they launch two new series in 2013. The cable network recently released a two-for-one trailer for Masters of Sex, which stars Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan (Party Down) as the real-life pioneering 1950’s sexologists, William Masters and Virginia Johnson; and Ray Donovan, starring Liev Schreiber as a Hollywood fixer who seems like a gritty combination of Pulp Fiction‘s Mr. Wolf and real-life investigator-to-the-stars, Anthony Pellicano.
