Jenny Lewis pens song for "Ricki and the Flash"

Who?! I know you're thinking "who the hell is Jenny Lewis?"  I didn't recognize the name either, but I cam across this article which talks about how Meryl gave the songwriter insight into her character Ricki to help compose "Cold One" for the upcoming film.  I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Jenny is a former child star, whom I easily recognized from roles in The Wizard with Fred Savage ("he touched my breast!") and a guest appearance on the greatest show that was ever on television, The Golden Girls.  

Can we sense Oscar buzz for best original song?  Ricki opens in less than a month!


  1. Oh my goodness Jeff, I LOVE The Golden Girls! Is she the little girl who wouldn’t give Rose back her bear which lead to one of the funniest scenes with Rose snatching it back? I am hoping the song turns out to connect with people and the soundtrack is very strong..

    1. You got it.
