Diane Keaton has had a rough run in the movies over the last year, stuck starring in crap comedies like Because I Said So and Mad Money while her contemporary Meryl Streep is getting some of the best roles of her career. So why not try her luck in TV instead? EW reports that Keaton is eyeing the title role in the upcoming HBO series Tilda, a comedy about a Hollywood blogger who isn't supposed to be Deadline Hollywood's Nikki Finke, but, uh, pretty much is.

Even though she hasn't really had a chance to show them off lately, presumably Keaton's sharp comedic chops are still intact, and we saw in Something's Gotta Give that she does well with the overwhelmed working-woman kind of role. What will be interesting is if the character comes with Finke's legendary venom, a tough character trait to pull off in the lead character of a comedy show, but HBO has definitely succeeded with tougher characters to love.

Much like Glenn Close on Damages or Kyra Sedgwick on The Closer, Keaton seems poised to be another slightly faded movie star getting a second chance on the small screen. It's hard to know what to expect from the show Tilda itself, but it definitely sounds like the kind of thing that could be perfected by a lead star-- and Keaton, from what we know, is looking like an ideal choice.
