THE ON-GOING CAREER OF MARY KAY PLACE 

(Starts at 7:45)

Mary Kay Place is one of those actors who's been in so many TV shows and movies that, if you saw her on the street, you might think you knew her. Her first TV roles were in "All in the Family" and "M*A*S*H." In 1977, she won an Emmy for her role as Loretta Haggers in "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman," and in 2010 she was nominated for an Emmy for playing Adaleen Grant on "Big Love." She's also directed been in more than 50 films, including "Being John Malkovich" and "The Big Chill," but her new film, "Diane," is her first leading role. First-time director Kent Jones wrote the film — about a woman who's devoted her life to taking care of others, including her drug-addicted son — with Place specifically in mind. The actress spoke with The Frame host John Horn about "Diane" and about how she got her start in Hollywood — writing for shows like "M*A*S*H" and "The Mary Tyler Moore Show."
