Alex Borstein in "Good Night, and Good Luck" (2005)

Zeo's Alex Borstein (voice of Queen Machina, Zeo) played a supporting role in the 2005 Academy Award-nominated historical drama "Good Night, and Good Luck." In the film, Borstein portrays Natalie, an employee of CBS in the 1950's when broadcast journalist Edward R. Murrow stood up to the fear tactics employed by Wisconsin Senator Joseph McCarthy as the threat of Communism was on the rise. McCarthy set out to expose any individual he felt was tied to the Communist threat, whether they were guilty or innocent, creating an atmosphere of paranoia in the United States. Murrow set out to shed some light on McCarthy's political bullying and expose his motives. Borstein's character is the secretary of Murrow's producer Fred Friendly, who is played by George Clooney, who also wrote and directed the film. Borstein appears in several scenes throughout the movie.

"Good Night, and Good Luck" is available on DVD
