Join our live chat with Emmy nominee Jane Fonda (‘The Newsroom’)

On Monday at 1 p.m. PT/ 4 p.m. ET, we’re chatting live on our home page with Jane Fonda about her new Emmy nomination for “The Newsroom” in which she portrays Leona Lansing, a ferocious owner of of a cable TV news channel.

It’s a juicy role because Leona is a prim, tut-tutting socialite who is also a firebrand media chief unafraid to rattle the same elite establishment she belongs to as a tycoon.

Her episode submission to Emmy judges — “Red Team III” — is a good one, in which she passionately refuses to accept the resignations of her scandal-plagued news team.

You can join our chat by posing your questions and comments in the chat room that will appear on our home page next to the live-streaming video.

  1. First of all – LOVE you in the newsroom, I would like to see more of you! My question is this – what project – either movie, stage or TV are you the proudest of. (what would you like to do that you haven’t done yet)

  2. What are the chances of Rupert Murdoch actually buying Time Warner and what is it about it that bothers you? Love you Jane. Cliff
