Character info update for Streep's role in "Extrapolations"

I was alerted earlier today by a tweet from Jamie Michael Rogers that Meryl will be playing Sienna Miller's mother in Apple TV+'s anthology climate change series, Extrapolations. 

 When asked if she can say who Meryl is playing, Miller hesitated and reiterated that Meryl would play her mother and "one other part." This last line is interesting, as it suggests that Streep's role is being kept under wraps. I don't know why this would be, unless there's something special or different about it that they don't want to spoil. Maybe it's that she has more of a lead role that runs through several episodes. Maybe Sienna simply doesn't know if she's supposed to talk about characters other than her own in the series. I remember seeing a clip with director Scott Z. Burns talking about Meryl being in a certain episode, which made it sound like her participation was limited to that one. That still may be, but Sienna Miller's cagey response in this interview has me even more intrigued. 

No word on when we can expect to see Extrapolations. I'm confident it will be before year's end, however.

  1. What confirmed for me that this is likely an episodic anthology is Sienna's comment that "[hers] is set in 2046" implying she has a singular episode. It's plausible that Meryl has multiple roles, as Burns did write The Laundromat, after all...and she definitely did more than one part there, for better or worse.

    1. Yeah I got the same impression. Regardless I hope it turns out being more substantial than I'd thought!

  2. I hope so too, what person would cast Meryl and not try to make the most of her?

    1. Right?! Although who knows what the original script called for.

  3. My theory is Mother Nature, which would make sense to why Sienna said she’s someone else’s mom…

    1. What I hear Sienna say is "my Mom as well as another part." Doesn't sound like she's playing someone else's mother as well.
