All writer/director Rian Johnson has said about him is that “there’s a reason why we call him DJ.”The official description of the character reads: “DJ is an enigmatic figure whose tattered, threadbare clothes and lackadaisical attitude conceal a sharp mind and expert skills.” And from tidbits released so far, we know that DJ is involved in a storyline in which Finn (John Boyega) and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) journey to the casino city Canto Bight.Now, more details about DJ are coming out in a new report by Entertainment Weekly.

I think the pain and what’s behind the violence and the reason why he’s committing the violence, that’s a different story. But I’ve always fought to preserve that, and I think that that’s a part of him. I think being a father and being a husband, he’s a character that I deeply empathize with.The role in “Pilgrimage” is as physical as anything you’ve done. I like, at the end of the day, being all banged up and bruised, and feeling like we actually earned our money that day. I felt a learned a ton about myself, I learned a ton about my character. Yeah, I think all the projects I’ve done lately, that’s in there.I think with both “Wind River” and with this film, I think that the characters that I play, you might think they’re one kind of guy, but then they end up being something completely different. Frank is damaged. I try to work with filmmakers that I believe in, on material that I think will challenge me and that’s great. This is going to be my thesis on violence and the effect it has with the roles I take.” Look, I really try to choose parts that resonate with me. And I dig that. We didn’t have a lot of time. It raises the stakes on the fight days. What do you enjoy about the physical discipline that these types of roles require, and the different sort of fighting skills that you’ve been picking up over the years?Look, I was an athlete before I was an actor, and I’ve always looked at acting as very much an athletic endeavor. It makes it much more on the line, and makes it much more dangerous, and honestly violent, rather than trying to create violence. It was an experience that I’ll never forget. I dig that being full out. It’s a good feeling.For me, finding new ways to express that, I think that the way that characters fight, the way the characters act when their backs are up against the wall, tells an enormous amount about the character. My first instinct was just to stop speaking totally, and that’s what I did for the first couple of weeks, both on set and off. To look at the ways we use violence in the arts, and what we say through that violence.It’s a really good question, and I’m not going to sit here and try to convey a message to you like I sat down in the beginning of the year and said, “You know what? In this movie, I had to pick up a whole new skill set, training with sword masters and learning those kinds of skills.With this kind of film, our back was really against the wall in terms of the fights. I didn’t pick these things purposely, but yeah, I’m really glad and grateful for the projects that I’ve gotten to be a part of this year.Along that vein, in terms of making Frank Castle more of an antihero at the center of his own series, what kind of shift did that involve for you creatively, kind of figuring out how to play him as, yes, he’s the protagonist, but we’re also aware of what kind of antagonistic baggage he brings from the “Daredevil” series?It’s an interesting predicament. And then have the fortitude and the courage on the day to improvise, and go with it, and make it work in the moment, because we were chasing the sun. What’s been the endgame in your head as you’ve been exploring these different characters in things like “Wind River,” “Baby Driver,” this film, and “The Punisher”? I really love the people that I made that movie with.You’ve had such a great run of projects this year, and so many of them deal with the language of violence, in different ways. I’m used to that from the Marvel world. To put him as the central character is interesting. Frank is tortured. I like there to be a lot of grey area. I love the use of language in it, and I love the fact that there’s about seven different languages on the page that’s used in the film. I think Frank, when he engages in violence, there’s something utterly satisfying and addictive for him to be doing that, and that may not be something that the audience can agree with or get behind. I want to explore that, too.So I think that’s the real challenge: being bold enough to not make him too heroic, at least “heroic,” is important to me. It adds the vitality of it to the in-the-moment-ness of it. And as he tells Moviefone, it’s tests like that — and turning The Punisher into a enduring protagonist — that keeps him coming back for more.Moviefone: Tell me about figuring your way into playing a character with almost no dialogue in “Pilgrimage.” Was it an unusual experience for you?Jon Bernthal: Yeah, absolutely. Jamie Hannigan’s script really blew me away. Literally, to have a half day to do a fight scene — on a bigger studio film, we would’ve taken two/three weeks to do these fight scenes.I’m used to that from television. In the end, I thought that it was sort of hurting the process of the movie.Cutting off my ability to communicate with the director was tough, because I needed him to sort of see the dialogue that I was creating. Therefore, I had to kind of create this own sort of way of communicating. I dig that. Then, obviously with Frank Castle, violence is a huge part. I’m grateful for the opportunity. When I couldn’t tell him about it, it was a rich experience for me in terms of learning about the character, but I was worried that the film was suffering for it. So I decided to abandon that going silent after the first couple of weeks — much to the disappointment of my cast mates, who all said they enjoyed my company more when I was quiet!It was a very unique challenge. So what that meant is, Paul Burke and the stunt team, we had to rehearse our a**es off, and know that fight in and out. Posted August 11, 2017 by Scott HuverJon Bernthal’s year has been filled with plenty of violence — and that’s been a good thing for the actor.In project after project — including the high-octane, high-impact “Baby Driver,” the bleak and chilling “Wind River,” the brutal Medieval period drama “Pilgrimage” and his pending return to Marvel’s unstoppable vigilante The Punisher as the star of his own Netflix series — Bernthal’s work provides a compelling new window on the resounding impact of violence on the characters he plays and those around him.And Bernthal always rises to the physical challenge — in “Pilgrimage” he not only mastered 13th century swordplay, he took on the task of playing a mute character who must communicate entirely without words. It let me meet a group of people that will now be a part of my life forever. I’ve been really lucky this year that I’ve gotten to do pretty much everything that I’ve done.I think as far as the question is concerned, I really do believe in being part of projects with a cogent voice, and that really makes you ask questions. I really like that, too. We didn’t have a lot of money. That being said, I think there’s Frank Castle inside of everybody. And I like that. I try to work with other actors that I admire. With that, I saw this other language that needed to be created, and that would be the language of the Mute.He’s a guy who is a central character in the film, but he has no dialogue. It was a tricky sort of way. I think that my big struggle with him is that one of my biggest kind of things that I’m always fighting for on set is, I always want to preserve the essence of Frank, and have the right and be bold enough to really turn my back on the audience, and not do things to win the audience’s favor, but rather stay true to the character and the essence of who he is.I think Frank is brutal. I love to read a script and not really know who I’m “rooting for,” or who I “believe in.” I like it to be challenging. I think everything about this experience was pretty unusual.

“I’m sure we’re all heading in some dark directions again.”Silver described the upcoming season as “juicy” and added that they “hit the ground running” after establishing the framework in Season 1. The teens will still be dealing with the aftermath of her death, and to nobody’s surprise, that’s going to be intense.”It’s naturally going to progressively get to a more emotional place, due to the nature of the story we’re telling,” Minnette told ET. Posted August 10, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongNo surprise — “13 Reasons Why” Season 2 is going to wreck us emotionally.The cast is still keeping the plot under wraps, but stars Katherine Langford (Hannah), Dylan Minnette (Clay), and Steven Silver (Marcus) did tease some interesting information while speaking to ET during Tuesday’s Power of Young Hollywood event in Los Angeles. Earlier this week, reports came that seven new characters will be involved. Based on what they had to say, it will be another emotional roller coaster.Picking up a few months after Hannah’s suicide, the season is “a lot about recovery,” according to Minnette. “You can see more of an ensemble.”The ensemble has grown since Season 1. Apparently, that will change the feel of the series.”This season feels like a very different show,” Langford told EW.One reason for that may be the fact that “13 Reasons Why” has officially used up its source material, Jay Asher’s bestselling young adult novel.”We’re starting from scratch and you can see some of the other characters develop that were not so developed in Season 1 or in the book,” Silver said. They’ll be part of the emotional story, which is expected to follow a lawsuit that Hannah’s parents bring against Liberty High.”13 Reasons Why” Season 2 will premiere on Netflix in 2018.[via: ET]
Baelish’s timeline,” Hempstead Wright told Time. “His intention is to slightly rattle Littlefinger, to say, in just a subtle, really creepy way, ‘I know what you’re up to.'”His tactic appeared to work. Posted August 10, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongEverything is intentional on “Game of Thrones.”Season 7, Episode 5 had so many big developments that it was easy to miss the significance of a comment from Bran Stark. With how much scheming the older man has done over the years, it was nice to see him shaken.It’s about time someone had Littlefinger’s number.[via: Time] During the conversation, Bran flexed a little all-knowing, Three-Eyed Raven muscle, telling Littlefinger, “Chaos is a ladder.” The worlds alluded to a discussion Littlefinger had with Lord Varys (Conleth Hill) in Season 3.”The fact that Bran heard that line means that he’s gone back and looked through Mr. Littlefinger seemed taken aback, unsure of what message — if any — the boy was trying to send. (Spoilers ahead if you haven’t watched the episode!) When asked about some words fans may have already forgotten, Isaac Hempstead Wright confirmed to Time magazine that his character was trying to set Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish (Aidan Gillen) on edge.The words weren’t as flashy as the swordsmanship of Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) or as fiery as the battle won by Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and her dragon, but the comment was important nonetheless.
You have to think about CG with the hair, and how their clothing moves, how are they floating, what kind of rig we put them on and all that stuff. Wan believes that that type of effect will make his film better, and as he tells THR, he believes all the hard work — and from the sound of it, frustration — will be worth it once audiences see the finished product.” … … “Working with water, and even the dry-for-wet sequences are very complex. And according to director James Wan, the film’s reliance on using real effects whenever possible has posed a unique set of water-logged challenges for the flick.In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Wan lamented the difficulties of dedicating himself to verisimilitude when it comes to underwater scenes.”It’s a very technically challenging shoot to be on,” the director explained to THR. “Using practical effects — a.k.a., eschewing CGI as much as possible — has become popular once again in Hollywood, with “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” standing as the most famous recent example of the revived trend. [It’s] very difficult and time-sucking and time-challenging to do all of this,” the director told the trade. Our equivalent of two people sitting around chatting in the underwater world is super complicated. “So it’s not an easy shoot — but hopefully it will pay off in spades down the line.”Fans can judge for themselves when “Aquaman” hits theaters on December 21, 2018.[via: The Hollywood Reporter] Posted August 10, 2017 by Katie RobertsProduction is underway — and, literally, underwater — on “Aquaman,” the splashy spinoff flick featuring the Justice League member played by Jason Momoa.

According to the New York Times, Murray was such a fan of the show — which he took in on Tuesday, then again on Wednesday — that it moved him to tears. “You got me. You really got me.”Addressing the entire ensemble, he said, “As actors, I can’t respect enough how disciplined you are and how serving you are of the process.

The show found a new audience in young Millennials when it hit Netflix back in 2015, and remains as beloved and relevant as ever. Plus, it will explore the show’s afterlife and why it continues to appeal to people too young to have watched it the first time around.A specific publication date hasn’t been set yet, but it’s due to debut sometime in 2019, which marks the 25th anniversary of the “Friends” premiere. Could we BE any more excited?[via: The Hollywood Reporter] Posted August 10, 2017 by Katie RobertsHit NBC sitcom “Friends” is still ubiquitous more than 13 years after it left the air, living on in perpetual cable reruns. The book is being penned by writer Kelsey Miller, author of the 2016 memoir “Big Girl,” and has been compared to last year’s surprise hit “Seinfeld” history book, “Seinfeldia: How a Show About Nothing Changed Everything.”Here’s a bit more scoop on the title, per THR:The book promises a look at the origins of the show, the numerous high-profile guest stars (Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Tom Selleck, Reese Witherspoon and many more) and, of course, Jennifer Aniston’s infamous “Rachel” haircut. Now, a new book will explore that enduring appeal.According to The Hollywood Reporter, the tome, titled “I’ll Be There For You” — after the show’s earworm theme song — will tackle the history of “Friends,” tracing its ascent from a hangout sitcom starring a bunch of nobodies to one of the biggest hits of the ’90s, and its continued impact on the culture today.
Poe’s arc is one of evolving from a heroic soldier to a seasoned leader, to see beyond the single-mindedness of winning the battle to the larger picture of the future of the galaxy. But also I think she sees in him the potential for a truly great leader of the Resistance and beyond. Posted August 10, 2017 by Katie RobertsThe unexpected death of actress Carrie Fisher last year necessitated her exit from the “Star Wars” saga, and while fans will have to wait until the release of “The Last Jedi” to see how the rebel princess says goodbye, the cast and creative team are promising that it’s a fitting, emotional tribute to both the character and the actress. “She’s just taken hit after hit, and she’s borne it, and she focuses on moving forward and the task at hand.”Leia will once again be in recovery mode when “The Last Jedi” starts, and finds some solace in her mentorship of Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), the young pilot who quickly becomes a key member of the Resistance. The flick hits theaters on December 15. Now, we have a few more details about Leia’s journey in the film.Entertainment Weekly reports that the flick picks up with the Resistance leader dealing with the fallout of the events of “The Force Awakens,” in which her husband, Han Solo (Harrison Ford), is murdered by their son, Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).”Her character to some degree or another has been defined by loss through this whole saga, starting with the loss of her home planet [Alderaan in 1977’s ‘A New Hope’],” writer-director Rian Johnson explained to EW of Leia’s journey throughout the series. “But watching the film, there’s going to be a very emotional reaction to what she does in this movie.”We’ve already got our tissues handy.For more details on Fisher’s role in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” check out the full story over at Entertainment Weekly. I think Leia knows she won’t be around forever and she, with tough love, wants to push Poe to be more than the badass pilot, to temper his heroic impulses with wisdom and clarity.”That special relationship has taken on new meaning in the wake of Fisher’s death, Johnson explained.”There’s no way that we could’ve known this would’ve been the last Star Wars movie she would be in, so it’s not like we made the film thinking that we were bringing closure to the character,” he told EW. In an interview with EW, Isaac explained the two characters’ intimate dynamic in the sequel:”Poe is in some ways a surrogate son for Leia. …
It is true to our brand, which is you are going to be in a whole new world all over again, and fall in love with these really special characters and hate yourself for watching it before you go to bed.”Sounds about right for “American Horror Story.” Fans will find out more when “Cult” premieres on September 5.[via: Deadline] Referencing comments that creator Ryan Murphy made way back in February, when he told Andy Cohen that season seven would be “about the election that we just went through,” “AHS” executive producer Alexis Martin Woodall said that there was more to that statement than meets the eye.”When Ryan had to make the announcement originally that the season was going to deal with Trump, I think it’s more about what’s going on in our world around us,” Woodall explained to reporters.Deadline reports that the EP went on to clarify those remarks slightly, though she declined to get into too many specifics:However, the show will certainly feed into the state of mind surrounding the election, since Woodall said the show will feature a “streak of paranoia,” but she added, “it’s not what you think it is — and I’m not trying to be cagey.

an Audience Rating of 63%. It got the same rating on Rotten Tomatoes as ‘Paul Blart: Mall Cop,’ maybe worse.””Passengers” criticism is valid, even if it shouldn’t be assumed that all of the criticism was for that same reason. Posted August 10, 2017 by Gina CarboneThe upside of critics bashing “Passengers” is that viewers — perhaps going in with lowered expectations — seemed to like it just fine. I personally think the movie is very good, I’m very proud of it. Sequel city.”Here’s the “Passengers” part of Lawrence’s Vogue’s profile:It says a lot about Hollywood culture (or all culture these days) that what it takes for someone to be considered “real” is a habit of honesty. It was not the only criticism of the sci-fi film, but it was the one that got the most traction.The movie ended up with a Metacritic score of 41, and a Rotten Tomatoes score of 31 percent, vs. But it will be interesting to see how this particular film holds up in, say, 10 or 20 years.Want more stuff like this? That said, Lawrence said she was disappointed with herself for not seeing the flaws in advance, and perhaps suggesting some changes.*Spoilers ahead from the movie*The Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence movie looked like a can’t-miss going in, but one of the main plot points turned off a lot of critics, since the protagonist — Pratt’s character — turned out to essentially be a stalker, choosing to wake up Lawrence’s character ’cause he’s so lonely (and she’s so hot) essentially dooming her to the same fate. I’m proud of how the movie turned out and it did just fine to make money back for the studio. The decision was addressed in the movie, but it was also made into a convenience when it turns out they needed two people to work together. It was definitely a lesson. It definitely wasn’t a failure. Like us on Facebook. There was just stuff that I wished I’d looked into deeper before jumping on.”Back in April, Pratt told Variety the criticism surprised him.”I was really caught off guard by that. But if asked, Lawrence will give a respectably straight answer on, say, her 2016 sci-fi film Passengers, which was a box-office success despite a thumping from critics—she’s proud of it but agrees with those who suggested the film would have benefited from a reedit and started with her character waking up. It would have been much more interesting if we hadn’t understood him from the beginning.Also he should have died in the end, leaving her in his dilemma. But the critical score was disproportionately negative compared to the Cinemascore. The movie should have started with her waking up, meeting him, realizing what he had done, and then adding flashbacks of his POV during the resulting conflict. I’m not embarrassed by it by any means. IMDb users rated it a 7.0 out of 10, and the film has a Cinemascore of “B,” showing many fans didn’t share the same distaste.But Lawrence told Vogue she agreed with the suggestion that the movie might work better if it started with her character waking up, following that perspective instead.As one fan suggested:”I just wish they had told the story from her POV instead of his. I’ll be curious to see if it holds up — the criticism and the movie. Some critics — and fans — just didn’t like the sci-fi film as much as they expected to for other reasons. “I thought the script was beautiful—it was this tainted, complicated love story. “I’m disappointed in myself that I didn’t spot it,” she says.
Martin’s books, which have taken a very different path from the TV show.Here are the basics:When Dany enters the House of the Undying in the second book, “A Clash of Kings,” she has a vision of what seems to be her older brother Rhaegar speaking to a woman nursing a newborn baby. I love the [‘previously on’ recaps] to start the episodes. Three dragons, three riders, three siblings. Like us on Facebook. Rhaegar says the baby is “the prince that was promised,” the guy/gal Melisandre has been droning on about on TV. The theory is based on intel in George R.R. At least Jon Snow and Daenerys are going to be working together, and they are mining the dragonglass.”He’s wrong about some of the details there — we know Jon’s father was Rhaegar Targaryen, Dany’s older brother, not the Mad King. Now — out of nowhere, it seems — NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers went Full Nerd to The Ringer, talking about the most recent Season 7, Episode 4, and sharing his agreement with the “dragon has three heads” theory that suggests Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, *and* Tyrion Lannister are all Targaryens.Here’s Aaron Rodgers’s repetition and agreement with that theory, to The Ringer:”I think that Jon Snow, Daenerys, and the Hand of the Queen [Tyrion Lannister] — I think they are all related. Joanna died giving birth to Tyrion, and Tywin has said “you’re no son of mine.” Sure, Tywin told Tyrion “you’re my son,” when he felt Jaime Lannister was in danger and he needed someone to carry on his name, but that came off as manipulationAnyway, Rodgers continued to fanboy to The Ringer:”There are just so many storylines and you have to really pay attention to keep up. The Mad King might have been his father, might have been him — and that would make Daenerys and Jon brother and sister.
