Elisabeth Moss to lead 'Call Jane'

(Maybe that one is the exception that proves the rule.) Now she's attached to another pointedly political project, a women's-rights drama titled Call Jane.

The movie - set in 1960s Chicago - focuses on the true story of an underground network of suburban women who secretly provide safe abortions for women before the landmark decision Roe v. Wade. Robbie Brenner (Dallas Buyers Club) will produce.

Moss will play Jane, a married woman who is unexpectedly pregnant and discovers the underground group of women.

Moss has been busy lately, promoting the hell out of both The Handmaid's Tale and Top of the Lake: China Girl. Then she earned Margaret Atwood's favor and flitted through the streets of Gilead for The Handmaid's Tale, picking up two Emmys in the process.

Although the star's speech was cut off, Moss says it was no biggie.

Elisabeth Moss was nominated six times for her work playing Peggy Olson on Mad Men without winning, but longtime co-star Jon Hamm, who watched the show from home, had a strong sense that her role on The Handmaid's Tale would get recognized. "You'll have to guess what the other shoe says. our note to the patriarchy #teamresistance", Welch captioned the pic.

Given how dark and twisted the first season was for Moss' character, it's either exciting or terrifying that the writers have managed to surprise her after all of that. Whether or not it happens, that's up to the winds of whatever.' I was incredibly pleased when it happened for her. She ended her breathless speech by thanking her mother (and triggering the CBS censors), saying, "You are fearless and strong and smart, and you have taught me that you can be kind and a f*cking badass". "The world moves pretty quick and it's a freaky new landscape, and I think we're still figuring it out in many ways". "Whereas with a man it wouldn't be".
