BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (July 31, 2013)—So much sex is depicted on the new TV drama series “Masters of Sex” about researchers Masters and Johnson that filming it became ho-hum, actor Michael Sheen said.
Sheen plays William Masters opposite Lizzy Caplan as Virginia Johnson in Showtime drama about the couple's groundbreaking investigation of human sexuality, which debuts Sept. 29.
Virginia Johnson died last week at age 88 in St. Louis.
She was divorced from Masters, who died in 2001.
Sheen made the comments Tuesday to a meeting of the Television Critics Association in Beverly Hills, Calif.
