Maura Tierney Explains The ‘Secret Mission’ She Cooked Up For Her Character When Filming American Rust: Broken Justice Season 2

March 22, 2024 - Movies

Looking over Maura Tierney’s extensive filmography, you’ll find everything from great Jim Carrey comedies like Liar Liar to gut-wrenching must-watch biopics like The Iron Claw, and just about everything in between. Over the years, the ER alum has shown off her comedic chops and dramatic prowess in multiple roles, and for the return of American Rust: Broken Justice, she found a way to add some fun and lightheartedness to the tense Rust Belt crime drama.

Before the March 28th debut of American Rust’s second season, a show that was canceled in 2022 by Showtime and later brought back by Amazon, I sat down with Tierney for an interview about the upcoming chapter, and I asked if she tried to do anything differently with her portrayal of Grace Poe the second time around. Little did I know, the Golden Globe winner was about to let me in on a little secret, a “secret mission,” as she put it:

I think I tried to treat the second season a little differently because what I wanted to do was bring a little bit more of her sense of humor out. I think she’s a deeply ironic character. So I would try to really illustrate that when I could in Season 2. … I would really try to find where I could inject, depending on the scene of course, some humor or level of irony in the character. I feel like I was on a secret mission.
