A Streep On the Small Screen


Meryl Streep's daughter Grace Gummer will launch her acting career with a starring role in TeenNick's coming-of-age drama Gigantic. In a stretch, the 23-year-old will play the teenage daughter of celebrity parents, struggling with Hollywood's "star-making promotional machinery." She will co-star alongside Joe Mantegna's daughter, Gia, 19, in the series set to premiere in early 2010. Gummer is the third of Streep's four children and performed onstage in 2008's The Sexual Neuroses of Our Parents. [Reuters]
