He and the Saviors have prepared a surprise for their enemies, but it’s not the one they first think. 12 at 9 p.m. Brace yourself.Watch the sneak peek blow.”The Walking Dead” Season 7 returns to AMC on Sunday, Feb. If this sneak peek is any indication, battling the Saviors is going to be one challenge after another. Posted February 9, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongRick and his gang of survivors are going to need their A-game to take down the Saviors.After weeks off the air, the “Walking Dead” mid-season premiere is almost here. AMC released a new sneak peek Thursday, and it shows Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and co. When the show returns, we can expect to see more conflict between the two rival groups. coming up against a literal roadblock in their plan.A villain like Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) has to have multiple tricks up his sleeve, and in the clip, he seems to have pulled out a new one. ET/PT.
And boy, he’s quick. He really is. We had connected. It becomes Alonzo Harris.That’s the magic trick, to be in front of somebody and be somebody else. Justin, did you have a thought or feeling about Bill in your head that you had to get over the first time you met him?Cornwell: I told him a lot on the pilot that it was a big honor to work with him. Jack Nicholson was the guy that I boiled down from. Tell me about those experiences — not even necessarily for the research, but just what you’re going through when things get a little freaky.Justin Cornwell: For me, it was just keeping my wits about me and not showing any of that fear. That was the moment for me. It was interesting. It’s, how do we make this better? I struggled to get through my day as far as trying to get it right.Cornwell: Demystified himself!Paxton: Yeah, I completely demystified myself pretty quick. First thing, he pulls us into a park, and there are these OGs there, hang out in the park, play dominos, drink those 40s and stuff. This is a brand-new situation for me. He’s fast. You can imagine what they did, but you never really explored it. You’re trying to find them and doing them. We didn’t do any camera reads. Bob was using my celebrity in terms of breaking the ice. It’ll get out there. They really are. They shot about 100 rounds here. But those days, some days when you’re on, I’m on, it’s just a great day. These guys spend all their professional lives — well, this guy did: 28 years in the same community. Again, it was cool that these Cambodian guys, ended up in this Bloods controlled neighborhood, and how they initially fought it out, but then earned each other’s respect. I’m more the kind of guy that just kind of wants to just be the fly on the wall. Tell me what that means to you, to be able to go in any different direction at this stage in the game.Cornwell: It’s fun for me. At the end of the day, is it entertaining? Gangster! He already has so much weight on him, already an Oscar for “Glory” and all these other movies. We’ve become good friends from this experience, because it’s an intense experience. I keep going. I try to bring that relish to Frank.And Denzel of course. It wasn’t just serving one side of that pole.Paxton: You’re right. I’ve seen a million movies, but that hit me like a freight train.Cornwell: I watched it with my family for the first time. But again, this guy would throw stuff into the scene as we started improvising a little bit. Jack — and why he’s so entertaining to watch — was he doesn’t just portray the character, but he relishes the portrayal. Just getting your rest and being ready for the next day. Is there a moral to it? When you’re watching it, you believe that guy’s in that world. But he knows everybody there. We didn’t test. I don’t want to interact with these guys. These stories, at the end of the day, they have a moral. I didn’t want to be like, “Oh, I’m afraid to talk to this person because he’s tatted out and he looks like he might …”Bill Paxton: This guy, Bob Deemer, he’s been working out of Newton division for 28 years. Then you realize that this is a masterpiece.They knew what they were doing when they cast Denzel. Posted February 9, 2017 by Scott HuverThey’re not exactly playing a buddy-cop dynamic in their new CBS police drama “Training Day,” but Bill Paxton and Justin Cornwell have already bonded off-screen after some edgy ride-alongs with real-life cops and a shared love of classic films.The relationship between screen veteran Paxton — who plays the morally ambiguous, ends-justify-the-means detective Frank Roarke in a street-level LAPD crime unit — and emerging star Cornwell — whose rookie cop Kyle Craig has been assigned to infiltrate Roake’s team — is hardly the uneasy alliance their characters share. Smooth day, we got rest the night before. No!” That’s what it becomes. It’s Jerry Bruckheimer bringing that kind of “Top Gun” sensibility to an hour drama on CBS. Is it at all informative? It was at the table read, and I had memorized this speech, it was from the audition. But one thing is that he got from me — and we never talked about this — is you see I never throw in the towel. It’s a whole other culture out there. It’s finite to them after a while. He comes prepared to work, he wants to do a good job, there’s no bullshit, actor bullshit. I was ready. When we watched it as a movie, it was just like, “Oh my God, did not see that coming!” Denzel, to African Americans, to anybody really, is this heroic guy. You’re trying to eat it, kind of look like they’re bonding with you. Then you had to watch it again. Off screen, the two actors enjoy a relaxed chemistry they cultivated in both the back seats of police cars and shooting the breeze about their favorite movies in between scenes.Paxton and Cornwell showed just how simpatico they are in a freewheeling chat with Moviefone, in which they recalled sharing some of their tensest moments researching in the streets of Los Angeles, and those performers that inspire them both — including original “Training Day” film star Denzel Washington.Moviefone: As actors, you do these ride-alongs with police to prep for roles like these. But it was weird because he was talking as if looking at this guy in the third person in a weird kind of way. It’s like, “Oh my God, there’s Denzel.”Paxton: I hear you.Cornwell: That’s what it is. We’ll sit down as a family and watch that movie. I’ve always done theater where my characters had a completed arc. That stuff was nasty! Then he wants us to talk, and this guy wouldn’t talk to us at all. But when I said, I said something in there, I started to go off on it, I dig the idea of being in a populist show that is going out to places where they know they don’t get any kind of elite TV package or anything. And he does too. So it’s skill of observation and research, then you add your imagination to that, and you build a character. We want to make good work, and that’s it.Bill’s got some pretty classic movies of his own on his resume. And so I gave it to you off book at the table read, and you kind of had memorized your response, and you gave it to me back. And we had a moment where we had another line we forgot to look at the page. Look, not getting into politics and all that. I went out with him a few times. We could use that in the show,” and then it becomes a little more authentic.Paxton: Yeah. I’ve seen it my whole life.Paxton: I’m sure you have. These guys are integrating. It’s a hard schedule. You felt like you were betrayed by everybody who made that movie. They’re just actors and they want to talk to you.” I was like, “Oh hey, Mr. They’re sort of meeting in the middle, and we’re going to see where this goes. It was the first time I met you. They can’t afford it.It’s free TV stuff. And at the end of the day, you might find all kinds of stuff, great stuff, but that’s not what they’re doing in the show.Cornwell: Sometimes, also, going back to script stuff, you said, “Hey man, I heard this really great piece of lingo that they use. We get to imagine what could happen.Paxton: Look, it’s a heightened reality. Just that stuff.Cornwell: Devil’s in the details.Paxton: Yeah. But we have to ground it so it’s not so heightened that it’s just like, “I can’t buy this.” Obviously, if we shot off that many rounds, and had that many round shot at us, I was saying, we would be not only Swiss cheese, but we’d be completely suspended or banned from working near any police force on any planet.It’s exciting stuff. A lot of it is rough justice, but you have to sometimes fight fire with fire, and you have to stand up, and you’ve got to look out for the people who are your family. Those Cambodian guys.Cornwell: Yeah. What’s he doing? I think that’s the hardest part is sleep.Bill, who was somebody that was an icon in your head that you worked with or encountered that was like, “Whoa!” And then you got to see what he or she was as a person?Most of them I never really got to see what they’re really like. Being movie people, my family is the kind of family that watches all the movies. It doesn’t matter what’s in the movie. The networks, they’ve got to compete with a lot of good cable shows now that they never had to years ago. We were at the table reading. Beef jerky.Paxton: Yeah. Nobody can shuck and jive and f*ck around [like him] — and I worked with Denzel on “2 Guns” a couple years ago. Some of the Cambodian guys are in Blood gangs and stuff like that. It was a movie part, so I had time to prepare the role. So when he comes into this character, they see it’s Denzel, but they didn’t have to suspend disbelief, by the end of the movie, you forget it’s Denzel. I was just like, “This is going to be fun.”Paxton: Yeah. I can’t imagine what it would be like to be a cop every day like that.How do you take what you see out there and apply it?Paxton: This is what you do as an actor. That’s all I’m about man, at the end of the day. He came from Louisville, Kentucky. And he was saying, you know, “They did a drive by here. It’s tough. His mind is agile.Do you remember the first time you saw the movie “Training Day”?Cornwell: Yes!Paxton: That’s, like, his second favorite film.Tell me how it hit you. You’re going to be in this for the long haul, presumably.Cornwell: I know the moment, for me. Yeah, we’re going to be selling a lot of Viagra and everything else. It sure as hell is.Is there a moment when you guys realized you found your level together? That work helps give the actor conviction of character. And in that relish, you as the audience are kind of relishing it, too. I do my biggest scene in the movie with Denzel my first day. It was strange, but interesting stuff. You either bond fiercely, or it’s like, “Just let me out of here!” He’s a first class guy. Every single day, working on the show was a big honor. It’s a big area. We’re seeing the other guys are kind of wary like, “What the hell is this?” And Bob tells them, “We’re not here to roust you or bust you or anything. He’s seen polarization.Cornwell: So I felt like the show was doing something where it could service a lot of different communities. Obviously, if you’re rubbery on the stuff, it’s going to be a hard day for you.Cornwell: It’s a fight. You can still see all the bullet holes and everything.” You see this one guy, and Bob’s in the car, he goes, “Yeah, man, you can tell: somebody’s marinated.”Cornwell: “Baked”?Paxton: Yeah, “He’s baked.” I don’t know what he said — whatever he said, it was weird. I think, for CBS, it’s kind of pushing the envelope a little bit. Here we get to explore that. Me and my partner, we’re actors.””Help us workshop a scene.”Paxton: That makes me uncomfortable. They all knew me from films and stuff like that.Cornwell: “Weird Science”!Paxton: Yeah, “Weird Science.” We start talking to them, and then we went down another street, and there were these guys sitting out in front of a classic Hollywood stucco court. Here we’ve got a show that I feel is fun, it’s entertaining, there’s some moral issues involved, and let’s go.I’m sure you didn’t imagine, when this project got off the ground, how polarized this country was going to be by the time the show comes out. They’re working in an integrated world, which a lot of people need to get with the program. Here we are now, and I’m watching the show thinking there’s going to be a lot of people watching the show that are 100% with Bill from the first episode — “You’ve got to get the job done” — and the others are 100% with Justin going, “You’ve got to play by the rules.” Cornwell: I tell you, I saw the polarization. I love being able to take a character and find out what he’s doing. Everything’s barred. He knows everybody. Now they all interact. He automatically becomes a hero when you put him on screen. So once he’s on the screen, “Yes, Denzel … “Hey, how’d that cop say that when he made that call?” That’s the kind of stuff I’m making notes of. And Denzel can do that, even when he’s already Denzel. Some of these speeches are tough. It is a weird time. Everybody works differently.What’s interesting about this take on “Training Day” is that there’s so much middle ground to cover: It’s not a story of Justin’s character, Kyle, getting corrupted or Bill’s character, Frank, getting redeemed just yet. It’s about loyalty and compassion, but also having to do the hard thing … The exact moment. Then we went over and those guys gave us those funky food, remember? Not only was he a great actor, he was an actor that people had already loaded their preconceived conceptions of what he does and who he plays inside of him. It’s tough. He can still take it off and put it back on.”Training Day” airs Thursdays on CBS. But you have to understand, being the movie-head that I was and that my family is, it was like doing a job with your uncle or something you’ve been watching your whole life.Paxton: Very quickly, too, he could see. You’re asked to take on a role, so you’ve got to go out and see how that role in the real world exists and how it works. It’s a hard part of town, man. I feel like if you’ve got that, they’ll know it.
But now, it’s officially going to have to find a new star: Shailene Woodley has finally confirmed that she’s definitely done with the series.In an interview with Vanity Fair, Woodley was asked about the plan to turn the franchise into a TV movie and accompanying TV series, and the actress said she would not be taking part in the project.”No,” she told VF. Now that its leading lady has officially dropped out — and it seems unlikely that other stars from the films will move to the small screen, either — it remains to be seen if and how the studio will move forward with its retooling of the series.Lionsgate is likely looking to fellow YA franchise “The Mortal Instruments” as a guide, since that series also cancelled its big screen plans following an underwhelming film outing, and later debuted instead on Freeform (formerly ABC Family) as the “Shadowhunters” series. In an interview conducted back in September, Woodley noted, “I’m not necessarily interested in doing a television show,” adding that she “didn’t sign up” for such a plan.When Lionsgate last commented on the move, it was optimistic that the television plan would be a positive change. Posted February 9, 2017 by Katie RobertsThere’s still no news on just when studio Lionsgate plans to introduce its “Divergent” TV series, after the franchise failed on the big screen. Stay tuned to see if “Divergent” will have a similar fate — or will be fated to die out entirely.[via: Vanity Fair] “I’m not going to be on the television show.”While Woodley had never officially said she would be bailing on the series — which was due to release its final installment, “Ascendant,” in June 2017 before being cancelled entirely last year due to the franchise’s poor box office performance — she didn’t seem too eager to move to TV.
A suicide attempt might have gotten him institutionalized, but a large psychic outbreak (his powers are very extreme) is what landed him in the company of the bad guys. But, more than that, the show will hopefully let us into David’s world, watching him grow and change, and, hopefully, stop causing so many things to blow up with his mind.Either way, we’ll see you next week for another recap. (My theory is that this is going to be like their version of the comic book’s multiple characters; instead of personalities fighting for control of David, other characters will simply visit him inside of his consciousness.) At one point, Hawley had told press that the entire series takes place within David, so that definitely throws a wrench in things. It’s a disorienting, fully realized trip and a huge reminder that Hawley is one of TV’s brightest visionaries, in or out of the snow.What Actually Happens?Well, that’s the biggest question.In this first episode, David is being questioned by several doctors, both in the Clockworks Institute and by a mysterious paramilitary force led by an inquisitive, creepy doctor played by indie movie favorite Hamish Linklater. “Legion” is created by certifiable genius Noah Hawley, who reconfigured the Coen Brothers’ “Fargo” into one of the most talked-about and critically acclaimed cable shows on air and stars “Downton Abbey” breakout star Dan Stevens in the role of David Haller, a man who may or may not be losing his mind (and who may or may not have extraordinary powers). In the comic books, Heller is found out to be the son of Charles Xavier, the grand leader of the X-Men (played in the films, alternately, by Patrick Stewart and Michael Fassbender). Posted February 9, 2017 by Drew Taylor”Legion,” which premiered last night on FX, is maybe the most un-recappable show in the history of modern television. And it’s a shame because “Legion” is probably the most exciting new series to come along in a while. Just typing this stuff out is a reminder of how bonkers this show really, truly is. It was incredibly ambitious and hard to visualize, which makes the decision to base an entire series around this character (the titular “Legion” are those inside of Heller wrestling for psychic superiority).But What About the X-Men?Despite FX running two “X-Men” movies back-to-back before the premiere of “Legion,” there’s no real connection (so far) between the mutants and the show. The only thing I know the answer to is the last question and it’s a big fat NO.”Legion” weaves a singular spell around the audience that’s hard to shake, and while there are certainly a number of mysteries presented in this initial offering (who or what is the devil with the yellow eyes?), it’s the kind of thing that’s best experienced and not intellectualized. But what’s more important than what actually happens, on a narrative-level, is the world that Hawley and company have set up.David is about as unreliable a main character as you’re likely to find, and his psychological state is such that even if characters die off, they can return in his consciousness. It’s based on a character created by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, who made his debut in “The New Mutants,” a spin-off of the incredibly popular “Uncanny X-Men.” Heller, in the comic books at least, is someone who has multiple personalities and whose personalities take a very literal form — disparate characters would fight for control over Heller’s mind (some were good and some were very, very bad). The episode toggles between a number of timelines, so it’s unclear when, exactly, the events are unfolding, although a rather violent escape at the end of the episode suggests that David has escaped the baddies and has now joined with some benevolent freedom fighters, led by Jean Smart (obviously). What is real? This is some next level stuff.How Is the First Episode?Amazing. Those commercials during the Super Bowl were really confusing. And does it really matter? And, who are these forces on either side of the fight? Actually putting it into some kind of linear analysis seems like a fools errand at best and actively self-destructive at worse.So, instead of a straight recap, what I’m going to do is answer some questions, put the show into context, and add a little bit of insight — or at least try to, anyway.Wait, What Is “Legion”?I know. Much of the pilot takes place in the nefarious, Kubrickian Clockworks Institute, a kind of mental health facility for incredibly troubled individuals (in a virtuoso opening montage, we see David grow up and eventually try to commit suicide). Just from casting notices, we know that the always wonderful Jemaine Clement will be a member of Smart’s resistance (he plays her husband, who has “spent the last 20 years on the astral plane”). What is the exact chronology of everything? Also, keep in mind that I haven’t even discussed Rachel Keller as Syd Barrett, another mutant who swaps bodies with David at one point. Did I forget to mention that?So It’s Based on a Comic Book?Well, yes. From the looks of it, David will fall in line with Jean Smart and whatever she’s up to, while outrunning the villainous forces we were introduced to in the pilot. It seems unlikely, given the kaleidoscopic nature of the show and its stubborn refusal to be placed into any one box (especially one marked “comic books”) that this connection will be fortified, and not just because it would take a lot to get either of those actors to appear on a basic cable series. What is fantasy? There are, of course, looming questions, like: How does the devil with the yellow eyes fit into all this? Ah, I love it.So Where Does It Go From Here?I haven’t watched anymore episodes and stayed away from the “next week on ‘Legion'” teaser because, honestly, who wants to get spoiled? “Legion” is unlike anything you’ve seen on television and anything even remotely related to the superhero movies that populate our multiplexes or the serialized sagas on television. It’s very hard to pin down.) What is happening? There are so many time jumps, narrative shifts, flashbacks, and potential dream sequences, that even following it can be a bit of a challenge. (The inspired production design, too, is beautiful and disorienting, mixing modernism with high-tech gadgetry in a really incredible way. Oh, and it’s sort of based on a character from Marvel’s long-running “X-Men” comic book franchise.
According to Variety’s sources, Fremantle has been shopping the show around to different networks, and NBC emerged as the leading candidate to take on a new version of “Idol,” though the trade stresses that talks are in the early stages, and NBC still needs to figure out how it will integrate the reality series into its current scheduling rotation before any deal can move forward.”American Idol” ended its 15-season run on Fox in May 2016, averaging 9.1 million viewers. Posted February 9, 2017 by Katie RobertsLess than a year after it signed off the airwaves for the final time, “American Idol” may be making a comeback on a different network.Variety has the scoop that the show’s production company, Fremantle Media, is currently in negotiations with NBC to revive the OG singing competition series. for now.”It seems like the host’s prediction is now coming true, though how “Idol” will fit into NBC’s schedule remains to be seen. And he famously amended his signature sign-off during the final “Idol” broadcast, saying, “Seacrest out … That’s a far cry from its years as the number one show on television — at one point, “Idol” was regularly pulling in a whopping 36 million pairs of eyeballs — though those figures aren’t exactly anything to scoff at in today’s increasingly competitive television landscape.Fox decided to pull the plug anyway, though longtime host Ryan Seacrest had hinted before the show ended that “Idol” could return someday. The Peacock already airs “Idol”‘s biggest competitor, “The Voice,” so it would be odd to have those shows overlap. (Variety reports that NBC is considering moving “The Voice” from a twice yearly rotation to once yearly.) But NBC also airs several other reality competition series, including “America’s Got Talent” (produced by original “Idol” judge Simon Cowell) and new show “World of Dance” (featuring former “Idol” judge Jennifer Lopez). The schedule could get crowded with all these similar offerings.Stay tuned to see how things pan out.[via: Variety]
[…] I don’t think it was just a Japanese story. There’s Americans in it.

— Constance Wu (@ConstanceWu) April 15, 2016Johansson is on the new cover of Marie Claire and she addressed the controversy around her casting:”I certainly would never presume to play another race of a person. They’re going to be very, very happy with it when they see what we’ve actually done with it, and I don’t think anybody’s going to be disappointed.”He said the setting of the movie is in “an international world” as opposed to just the fictional Japanese city of Niihama in the source material.”There [are] all sorts of people and nationalities in the world in ‘Ghost in the Shell.’ We’re utilizing people from all over the world. I’ve had to fight for everything that I have. It’s such a fickle and political industry.”But her status as the highest-grossing actress is probably connected to her casting in “Ghost in the Shell,” since she is a box office draw around the world, especially in action roles (like Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe).A while back, “Ghost in the Shell” producer Steven Paul defended Johansson’s casting to BuzzFeed.”I think everybody is going to end up being really happy with it. There’s Chinese in it. In fact, I’m a big fan. There’s English in it. The character is known as Major Kusanagi in the Japanese source material, and some manga fans — and fellow actors — were disappointed that a white star was cast in the role, even if that white star is the very popular, talented, and bankable Johansson.Nothing against Scarlett Johansson. Also, having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity. Diversity is important in Hollywood, and I would never want to feel like I was playing a character that was offensive. Certainly, I feel the enormous pressure of that—the weight of such a big property on my shoulders.”She also addressed being lauded as “the highest-grossing actress in Hollywood history,” clarifying:”Just because I’m the top-grossing actress of all time does not mean I’m the highest paid. … Like us on Facebook.

We’ve been friends for a while.”But now it’s over, and scheduling does seem to be an issue since they are both busy with multiple projects — and Evans is pretty much locked into production on “Avengers: Infinity War” and the sequel for 2018 and 2019 release dates.Evans sounds ready to settle down, though. We didn’t know each other growing up, but we grew up about a half hour away from each other. This week, Us Weekly confirmed that Chris Evans and Jenny Slate had broken up after about nine months of dating, and the Internet reacted with an unseemly amount of joy.The split reportedly happened within the last two-three weeks, before Evans’s beloved Pats won the Super Bowl, which he watched with “Avengers” buddy Jeremy Renner, not Slate.”It was completely amicable and a mutual decision due to conflicting schedules and they remain very close friends,” the source told Us Weekly of the split. I mean… My man is SINGLE!!!!!! 😄😄😄😄😁😁😁🎊🎉🍻””Kelsey Medina it’s about time she backs off my man 😂””Yay!!!!!! What a shame. Darn 😜””Angela this is your time””Ellyn Holmes what a shame but I guess I get captain to myself now 😂””Katherine Ianni oh no. That “I’m kind of available” one is classic. News, “You get to a point where you want the next thing. (Happy Valentine’s Day to me)””Aoife McGrath he’s free again!!!””Faith Elizabeth it’s your time to shine girl!””Emily Allen now’s your chance.””Toni Bradshaw Our mans is free””I’m kind of available, I know how to cook, clean, and keep u happy just give me a chance I truly really love my 🔥💪🏼🇺🇸🎬”Savages! News ended their story with that awwwww-worthy quote, but their breakup post has nearly 500 comments, and many are fans tagging each other on Facebook to make sure they saw that Evans is now single.Here’s a sampling:”Pamela!!!!!! Basically, “I can dump my current guy on short notice, just give the word, Cap.”The ATL “Avengers” set may need extra security to keep Evans’s fan base back. News also got confirmation from a source, who said the break-up “wasn’t dramatic or anything like that.”Slate and Evans met in October 2015 on the set of their upcoming movie “Gifted,” when Slate was still married to her now ex-husband Dean Flesicher-Camp. So terrible.

The CW show has been airing since 2009, now finishing up its eighth season of supernatural smarts, sass, sex appeal, and shockers.Fangs for the memories, guys.Here are last day reactions from showrunner Julie Plec, and stars Kat Graham (Bonnie), Matt Davis (Alaric), Candice King (Caroline), Paul Wesley (Stefan),and Ian Somerhalder (Damon):It’s the last day of The Vampire Diaries and I’m crying my way through my final morning commute. That’s a wrap for Alaric!
Obviously, “Moana” is out — I can focus solely on “Powerless.”It was all very thrilling and dizzying, and now it’s great to be here just focusing on “Powerless.” I don’t know that, I guess, because it was so busy and so many things were happening at once, I really understood what was involved — I also got married, so that was a fun thing to put in the middle of it all. I’m wearing a lot of hats on that one. I remember the fish was underdone.” It’s this magical gift of a night. So even though it’s work, and it is a tricky thing to balance and to juggle with the rest, it fuels the other projects in a way that I couldn’t have anticipated before doing it.And having something at the end of it all where you can point to it and say, “We made that” — it takes a lot of work to make a thing, and to have it to share is a really extraordinary feeling, that I always hoped to make something, and I’m really proud of it.”Powerless” airs Thursdays on NBC. So you kind of see the two of them being spies. I have a way to do it: It’s doing a prequel where we follow Cassian and K-2 before they join up on this mission to get the plans of the Death Star. Evil]” today, which was a genre movie. He’s a baby-man. It’s hard to get your head around still. I’m sure you’ve got to keep it within the confines of who this guy is, too.Oh yeah, absolutely. It all started after “Wreck-It Ralph,” which was one of my favorite roles I’ve ever had a chance to play. So tell me what was creatively exciting about being able to probe for the comedy in the world of superheroes with “Powerless” — and especially playing a character that we’ve learned is related to Bruce Wayne himself.I think it’s a blast! It was a very full year. I’m so happy. I didn’t think about doing a droid in the “Star Wars” universe, like how important it is — at least to how important the other droids are to me, that I didn’t think of myself being one of them until, I guess, I saw it in some people’s reaction.I don’t know — it’s humbling. Tell me a little bit about what it’s been like to have this very special moment in your career, walking into “Powerless” along with all the great things that have just happened. They give you a lot of freedom to play. He’s a broken man. I would go on set and have fun. It’s nice to have some continuity.The genre field has been good to you, and you have been good to it. DC tends to be a little bit more serious, I think, than Marvel, absolutely. So the things he does that are extreme or really fun come from that. I think that the writers have done a great job, and I’ve been having a lot of fun, so I hope that’s what people take away from it, that it’s funny, and it’s just as much fun to watch, it sounds so trite, but it’s true: it’s just as much fun to watch as it is to make.I got to sing a song last week. Posted February 9, 2017 by Scott HuverWhat do a dryly witty, reprogrammed Imperial droid, “Moana’s” oddball chicken Hei-Hei, the weaselly Duke of Wesselton, and, now, a clueless Wayne family scion have in common? It was actually the best thing last year.Yeah, you’re right. And my wife and I were like,”Oh, right, the fish wasn’t good. Oh, my God, man! It truly, with all these other things, it is the thing that takes up most of my focus because of that.But it’s amazing when you push the boundaries of yourself, any artist I’m sure, but I’m an actor primarily, and I am writing on “Con Man,” and directing, also wearing a producer hat, you change, like as an actor, I’ve changed now. And now, I can’t wait for people to see “Powerless.” I love that it’s part of the sci-fi world, and sort of in keeping with so many things that I’ve done now. There’s a lot of hats! They all either look, sound, or move a lot like Alan Tudyk.The past year marked a significant career high for the actor, who’s best known for his roles in fare ranging from “Firefly” and “Dollhouse” to “Suburgatory” and “Trumbo,” with voice roles in several Walt Disney Animation Studios films to boot. K-2 was one of those, and they let me really play around with him. Are you going to order the steak this time?” I’ve become spoiled, and they’ve given me the opportunity.Tell me a little bit about, in the midst of all this, having your own project in “Con Man,” trying to keep that on an even keel as you’re doing all these other great things. So his character drives that.Tell me what it was like for you to be the comedic voice of “Rogue One” — an otherwise very serious-minded movie — with as deadpan a touch as possible, and create this really distinctive character.K-2SO! He seems very dead, but if somebody wants to revise him in some way, I wouldn’t disagree, I wouldn’t ignore it. We presumably could see him again in the past, or another version of him in the future?I would jump at the chance. It was a horror movie, but it was a horror comedy. I would also buy a ticket to a K-2 and BB-8 road movie. I don’t know — I didn’t really think of him as being this — I don’t know why — droid in the long line of droids. I think that would be fun. What was the dessert? It was great. That’s what I hope people do, is laugh. That’s exciting to me, and it’s been really fun to play.Who is this guy, Van Wayne, to you? When there’s anything that’s really serious, it’s fun to turn it on its head and poke fun, and compare it to a regular world. The stakes are really high when you have such a fantastic world happening alongside office work. It was a blast, working with Diego [Luna] and Felicity [Jones] — I mainly worked with the two of them most of the time. We had so much fun. What did we have last time? I’m so happy they’ve embraced me. It’s usually about 20 people, you watch the movie at Disney in the animation building before it comes out, then you go upstairs and there’s this amazing catered meal, and they present you with a drawing — a pencil sketch of your character done by the artist who drew your character — and it’s amazing.I think it was for “Zootopia,” I was like, “These things are always fun.” It was always like, “What are we going to have? While this is on on my mind, I saw the director of a movie I did called “Tucker & Dale [vs. He’s a baby-man with parents that are cold, and that’s what broke him.You know how devoted the fans of genre entertainment are, more than anybody else out there. “I want to say a thing here, in addition to what’s written,” and they were game for all of it.It was great, and I’m so happy they used it, because it all just came out of the fun I was talking about. It’s about within this serious movie being the comic breath that you can take inside of all of the high-paced drama.It was a blast. It’s ridiculous! So I guess the answer is, I hope that sci-fi fans come in and find it funny and that it grows from there, because it isn’t just meant for sci-fi fans.But also, sci-fi fans love comedy in their superhero world. What are you excited about them coming to this show and getting to see what you guys are doing there? How are you perceiving him as you get to know him a little better?He’s a broken character. To be able to do a comedy and have the supers from that world as objects of humor is very exciting to me. Yeah. He’s a product of being spoiled and growing up with the promise of being a Wayne and that everything’s going to be handed to him, and he doesn’t really have everything handed to him that he wants. I’ve sung two songs, a blues song on a guitar that I can barely play. Some characters just have a lot of room to play around, and you kind of don’t know which ones those are going to be. Again, I would have a blast.I have my own take on it. Then right into “Frozen,” and then they decided to keep it going.I realized I was a bit spoiled when there’s this great dinner that happens when a movie is about to come out and all of the voice actors go to Disney, and John Lasseter and everyone who worked on the movie that were the heads and the directors, and the animators, and the writers, and all of that, get together and watch the movie. In particular, Tudyk’s voice and motion-capture acting in “Rogue One” led the sardonic K-2SO to become one of the biggest breakout characters in the new generation of “Star Wars” stars, and now he’s entering the DC Universe, sitcom style, with his turn as the not-as-smart-as-he-thinks tech millionaire Van Wayne on NBC’s “Powerless.”Tudyk joined Moviefone for a look at his recent phenomenal run, including the perks of being a Disney voice and his notion to put K-2SO back on the big screen.Moviefone: Here you’ve steadily built a career as an actor, you’re working all the time, and then all of a sudden you have a year like the last year that you’ve had. You know that you’ve got fans that follow you from project to project and are always interested in what you’re doing.I hope that they do follow, and come and check it out, and laugh. I had a harmonica. Let’s do it! It’s a beautiful, rare occurrence in most actors’ experience. We were standing in the rain in London most of the time, so it kind of became that I was the smart-ass anyway on set. Alan Tudyk: It’s great, now that we’ve started 2017, that a lot of things — “Star Wars” came out, and I finished “Con Man,” and it is now about to be all fully released and the season will be out. He has a lot, but he doesn’t appreciate it.He’s not, definitely, the most clever person in the office, but he thinks he is, and those are really fun characters to play. Would just get a different mission, and it’d be like “Mission: Impossible,” I don’t know — maybe not that.I would buy a ticket to that. People who are fans of horror movies watched it, but it’s a comedy. That’s great.Tell me what it’s been like to have this great ongoing relationship with Disney on the animation side, and to be given the kind of creative opportunities as a voice artist that they’ve given you over the last several years. “Firefly” that I did in 2003, and whenever I have seen those episodes again, I’m always taken aback by how funny they are. He has girlfriends, he’s his own worst enemy, he’s a child. It’s another thing that I can’t make sense of. I’d do the lines as written, and then I would do some of my own. I can’t wait to go to another Con. Although Diego’s a pretty good smart-ass.When you saw the reaction to that character — people didn’t know what to expect and they immediately fell in love with K-2 — what was that like for you to see how instantly he’s been embraced, and he’s now going to be an iconic part of the “Star Wars” lore?I’m really happy people like him. Luckily, the character is a classic comedic character, that he’s someone who’s full of himself, who’s not very bright, who will get himself into trouble. Joss Whedon does that really well. It’s what you want as an actor.It really does sound like an actor’s holiday, in that they’re throwing you the opportunity to do all kinds of stuff to get a laugh. I haven’t been able to go to a Con yet. It not only caught the horror audience, it went outside of that just to people who like comedy. [Laughs] I’m there! I see projects differently. Yeah, because I feel like that’s the sounding board I need to meet fans, to meet them.Do you hope that you can return to that character — or a variation on that character, in some way, given that he’s a droid?
Some critics have found fault with the movie’s plotting (warning: spoiler alert!), which seems to torpedo the couple’s romance over seemingly easily resolvable scheduling issues.More troubling is all the fault-finding over the movie’s politics. Of course, the Hollywood-based voters who might find Stone’s role more resonant far outnumber the East Coast voters, but if they split their vote between Stone and Natalie Portman (for “Jackie”), Huppert could slip in.Yeah, that’s a long shot, especially considering how much the Oscars actually do love to reward ingenues. “Just as our work does not stop at borders, borders can’t be allowed to stop any of us. “What a difference a year makes,” she said, referring to the broadening of Academy membership under her watch last year that seems to have led to this year’s more diverse slate of nominees.She also noted that some nominees — notably, Iranian director Asghar Farhadi — didn’t come because of President Trump’s travel ban. Stone and Ryan Gosling are game troupers, but as singers and dancers, they’re not exactly Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds. It seems weird that the character who wants to save the struggling music by returning it to its roots is a white pianist played by Gosling, while the character who supposedly wants to sell jazz out by watering it down with pop hooks and stage dancers is black bandleader John Legend. “What politics?” you may ask. Certainly, at the Nominees Luncheon, they don’t. It cemented its hold on Best Director and Best Picture on Feb. 4 when Damien Chazelle won the Directors Guild prize, usually one of the strongest predictors of victory in the top Oscar categories.On the other hand, the American Society of Cinematographers gave its top prize last week to “Lion” over “La La Land,” a modest upset. Posted February 9, 2017 by Gary Susman”La La Land” has been the Oscar frontrunner for so long that the backlash was inevitable.An army of naysayers has gathered to denounce the Best Picture favorite as overrated and unworthy of its record 14 nominations. That summer release seemed the favorite for months in 2014, but that also gave voters long enough to scrutinize it more carefully, find flaws, and allow late-fall release “Birdman” to look better by comparison. “Moonlight” director Barry Jenkins (above, right) told the “Awards Show Show” podcast that he and Chazelle have become friends during the awards race, despite the desire of the press to pit them against each other in “a battle royale.” He told the podcast, “I wasn’t on set thinking, ‘I’m going to make a film that can take down the ‘white, fascist musical,’ just like I’m sure Damien wasn’t on set thinking, ‘I’m going to make a movie that can take down the gay, black, hood love story told in an art-house way.’ It just doesn’t work that way.”The fact that “Moonlight” and “La La Land” are rivals at all is an accident of timing, generated by filmmaking processes that take years to put into motion, Jenkins suggested. It could suffer the same fate as “Boyhood” a couple years ago. She came to the luncheon as the guest of “Joe” director Kahane Cooperman.The short film is about a 91-year-old Holocaust survivor, Joseph Feingold, whose donation to the New York public schools of the violin he’d acquired when he was a refugee (a donation inspired in part by another Oscar-nominated movie) made a huge impact on Perez’s life. And there’s even some signs, from recent awards ceremonies, that the hit musical does not have a sweep locked up.The big question is: Are Academy voters listening to the negative buzz? And will it sway them when they cast their votes on Feb. 13?So far, the movie remains the favorite to win most of the trophies it’s nominated for. By the time the Oscar ceremony finally rolled around, support for “Boyhood” had dwindled — and “Birdman” came out on top.So it goes with “La La Land,” which is now being thoroughly dissected, while movies that haven’t been picked over to death, like “Lion,” “Moonlight,” and “Hidden Figures,” now get more consideration.It’s true, “La La Land” has some clear flaws. But the win for “Lion” win shows that support for “La La Land” among Hollywood craftspeople isn’t as strong as analysts thought.And there is even talk that Emma Stone isn’t the lock for Best Actress that she has seemed to be so far, but that Isabelle Huppert could surprise with a win for “Elle.” The theory goes: Stone was good in “La La Land” but not Oscar good, while Huppert, the veteran French actress who’d never been nominated before, gave the performance of her career.Both actresses won at the Golden Globes (where musicals and dramas are separate categories), but East Coast Oscar voters supposedly prefer the prestigious foreign thespian over the Hollywood starlet playing a Hollywood starlet. Maybe the movie peaked too soon.It was the Oscar favorite starting back in September, when it was wowing critics on the festival circuit. In the year where diversity among the Best Picture and acting nominees finally allowed the Academy’s detractors to retire the #OscarsSoWhite protest hashtag, what message would it send to reward “La La Land” over “Moonlight,” “Lion,” “Fences,” or “Hidden Figures”?That’s how the argument goes, anyway. Just look at what happened to the late Emmanuelle Riva — the French actress who received her first and only Oscar nomination at 85 for “Amour,” only to lose to 22-year-old Jennifer Lawrence for “Silver Linings Playbook.” Still, that this theory is even floating around out there means that Stone’s victory isn’t quite a sure thing.Why the sudden gathering of clouds over “La La Land’s” parade? It’s great for people out there who need a narrative, but we’re just trying to make art.”Jenkins, Chazelle (above), and most of the other nominees had a chance to prove that they could be friendly, without politics getting in the way, at the annual Oscar Nominees Luncheon on Feb. It’s led to such bitterness as the recent series of tweets by Kanye West collaborator Elon Rutberg, calling “La La Land” a “fascist” movie and “an act of destructive naïveté in a historical moment requiring depth, clarity, and refined thought.”Thankfully, in the real world, “La La Land,” “Moonlight,” and “Hidden Figures” and their stars are all worthy nominees whose victories could be justified on merit alone. The ASC Award is seldom an accurate predictor of Oscar success, so “La La Land” still has a good chance for a cinematography Oscar. It wasn’t just that they had both grown up in the Bronx and gone to public schools there. Real jazz musicians will tell you that this is a whitewash, a distortion of jazz history, and a gross oversimplification of complex trends in the music that jazz players have been arguing about for 50 years.But the jazz issue is just a symptom of the movie’s bigger political problem: its nearly all-white cast.It’s an awfully monochrome depiction, not only of what the film’s Hollywood setting actually looks like, but of what America looks like. Of this year’s several nominated films with predominantly black casts, he said, “Just like all these movies are being framed as a response to #OscarsSoWhite — I think they all arose in a vacuum, and they just arrived at this moment. “There are some empty chairs in this room, which have made Academy artists activists,” she said. She brought the instrument to the luncheon and played it for Washington, and then the A-list Hollywood star and the music student talked about what they had in common. Well, there’s the movie’s treatment of jazz. Sure, attending is part of campaigning for a prize, but it’s an event where everyone shows what well-behaved, amiable, good sports they are; by doing so, they prove they’re fit to take the podium and speak before a worldwide audience without embarrassing the Academy.True, Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs did try to inject politics into the afternoon with her speech. 6 in Beverly Hills. “Art has no borders and doesn’t belong to a single faith,” She added. And their creators are refusing to buy into the political feud others are trying to build around them. As is apparent from the video of Washington listening intently to Perez’s impromptu rendition of Pachelbel’s Canon, it was a shared appreciation of the performing arts that transcended politics, race, class, language, religion, country of origin, and other petty differences.Maybe there’s a lesson there for Academy voters. Strong societies don’t censor art; they celebrate it.”But maybe strong societies also don’t build border walls between artists. Sitting side by side, dining together on Chilean sea bass and couscous, are legendary stars and little-known sound effects engineers, powerful executives and struggling documentary filmmakers, and “La La Land” fans and “Moonlight” partisans.At the end of the luncheon, “Fences” star Denzel Washington (who will likely beat Gosling and Casey Affleck for Best Actor) chatted with Brianna Perez, the 14-year-old New York City schoolgirl who is one of the subjects of the Documentary Short nominee “Joe’s Violin” (which you can watch in its entirety for free here).
Not so much.The comedy comes from Justin Simien, who wrote, directed, and co-produced the film. Posted February 8, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio Long”Dear White People” the TV series is almost here.Netflix dropped the first teaser for the upcoming comedy on Wednesday, plus revealed the series’ premiere date. The series will try to live up to that success with some original cast members as well as new stars. He scored multiple awards with the movie, including the Sundance Film Festival’s U.S. The video offers a quick look at the adaptation, which — like the 2014 movie it’s based on — tackles racial tensions at a predominantly white Ivy League university.
