Mary Kay Place’s long career is filled with memorable supporting parts in films like “The Big Chill,” “The Rainmaker,” “Being John Malkovich,” and television shows such as "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman," for which she won an Emmy. “Diane” is her first starring role. Kent Jones wrote it with her in mind.
