Hunter enjoyed irony of 'Black Book' role

NEW YORK, July 28 (UPI) -- Holly Hunter says she sees some connections between her new U.S. comedy "Little Black Book" and her 1987 breakthrough film "Broadcast News."

The Oscar-winning actress has famously avoided repeating herself by taking vastly different roles throughout her career, but she told reporters in New York recently she had no problem playing a TV producer in both films.

"The irony was amusing to me," Hunter said. "That I would show up again, but now I'm producing reality TV. I like that and in a way, 'Broadcast News' was very prescient in it was saying it was the harbinger of what was to come and now here we are and this is the kind of television that is most prominent now.

"But (there are) differences between Jane Craig (in 'Broadcast News,') who was ambitious and career-minded and ethically driven to Barb (in 'Little Black Book,') who is a career drifter, a dabbler, more of an observer, a bohemian, definitely has a life off-screen. ... Anything that happened to Jane Craig happened on-screen and that was her whole life," she said.

"Little Black Book," co-starring Kathy Bates and Brittany Murphy, opens Aug. 6.
