Lainie Kazan’s ‘Big Fat’ Jewish Life

When Lainie Kazan first read the screenplay of Nia Vardalos' "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," now a frothy CBS sitcom, she could relate. Vardalos said she based the characters on her large, "loud, always-eating Greek family that loves me to the point of suffocation." And Kazan, who plays her Greek mama, hails from a similarly boisterous ethnic clan.
