What To Drink While You Watch TV, According To Actors And Screenwriters

Four of Hollywood’s top writers, actors and filmmakers tell us their favorite shows and bottles to pair at home for a night of watching television.

Stars, they’re just like us! They also find drinking wine while watching TV or a movie to be a sacred joy. We asked a few about their favorite pours for viewing pleasure.

Kylie Hitchcock, independent filmmaker, The Dog Walker: “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is about a guy who steps out of his comfort zone and ends up immersed in the most incredible journey. Such an epic adventure requires an adventurous wine, something exotic and bold. So, I recommend the Sidebar Kerner Mokelumne River.

This bottle, a cross of Riesling and Trollinger with origins in Germany, is just different enough to transport you to where the movie wants you to go. It’s an adventurous wine for a brave movie that inspires us to step out of our comfort zones.”

Elisabeth Röhm, actress, Bombshell: “I like to sip an intense red like the Regusci 2016 Angelo’s Cabernet Sauvignon, eat Italian food and watch The Irishman. I’m Italian, and Scorsese’s film, mixed with the wine, makes me feel connected, like I’m getting back to my roots.”
