Slovin is the writing partner of former Pierrepont Street resident, now Cobble Hillbilly, Simon Rich. So when they’re not crossing the Atlantic Avenue DMZ to visit him, perhaps Ryan and Slovin will be dropping in to see her Win Win co-star Paul Giamatti who lives a mere stone’s throw away from their new Hicks Street digs.
NY Observer: As a Queens native, Ms. Ryan knows her way around a New York block. In an interview with The New York Times last year, the Gone Baby Gone actress explained that the city has a singular vitality. “I need the pulse of New York City,” she said, admitting that she draws inspiration from the people she encounters in the subway and on the street. We have the feeling that there will be plenty of material for you to work with in Brooklyn, Ms. Ryan. Only time will tell how the new environs will shape her acting career, however. Perhaps we’ll see her in Requiem for Dream Part II?
