Martha Thomases: The Preacher Feature

24 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

A little over twenty years ago, Vertigo began to publish the Preacher series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. It was my job to promote it to mainstream (i.e. non-comic book trade) media. I was already a huge fan of Garth’s run on Hellblazer and almost got a blurb for it from Sting until the corporate types told me that wasn’t allowed.

I loved every issue of Preacher. It was funny and scary and emotional and philosophical and brilliant. It simultaneously evoked John Ford westerns and Harvey Kurtzman slapstick. It had a character named Arseface, for crying out loud. I did some of my best work promoting that book, because I believed I was bringing happiness to millions.

Needless to say, I was thrilled to find out there was going to be a television show based on the comics (or “graphic novels” as it says in the opening credits). Unlike many, »

James Corden Takes Over An ArcLight Movie Theater, Performs Homage to ‘Romeo + Juliet’

17 June 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

On “The Late Late Show” last night, host James Corden decided to mix things up and take a break from his busy schedule, filled with near-constant Carpool Karaoke segments that occasionally feature shirtless members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, to take over an ArcLight movie theater for a day. In the latest installment of his “Take a Break” segment, Corden stopped by Hollywood’s ArcLight Cinemas to try his hand at working at a movie theater. He handed out tickets, sold concessions, and even delivered ArcLight’s patented pre-movie introduction, which ended up devolving into Corden describing his full life story to a bored audience and him going row by row to make sure everyone’s cell phones are turned off.

20 Best, Worst and Wtf Moments at 2016 Tony Awards

13 June 2016 6:55 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

On a night that was marked by tragedy — and occurring mere hours after news broke of the deadly mass shooting in Orlando, Florida — the Tonys provided a much-needed bit of levity. The performers and honorees didn't shy away from speaking about the shocking events of the day, but the overall mood was one of celebration. Part of the credit goes to the master of ceremonies James Corden, best known as the goofy host CBS's Late Late Show, yet still a dorky theater kid at heart; his charming, cheerful persona brought »

TV Review: ‘The 70th Annual Tony Awards’

12 June 2016 8:55 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“The world turned upside down” is not just a line from a “Hamilton” song, it describes how many Americans felt on Sunday, when the awful events in Orlando dominated the thoughts of the nation.

But the show must go on, and the Tony Awards acknowledged the tragedy in Florida in a variety of ways while also managing to do a respectful and lively job of celebrating the plays and musicals of Broadway. The show went about 15 minutes long, but when your big finish involves Barbra Streisand handing “Hamilton” the best musical trophy, well, that’s what you’d call going out strong.

You can’t say the broadcast didn’t put forth a good amount of effort at keeping viewers who may not have been as familiar with “Waitress” or “Shuffle Along.” Of course, the Tony Awards broadcast always has to serve a few different purposes: Promoting a variety of Broadway shows and honoring the work of a wide array of producers, performers and other theater professionals — and keeping a TV audience that may not have seen many (or any) of the shows from tuning out.

On top of all that, Sunday’s Tony Awards broadcast had to take into account the horrible tragedy in Orlando, and a lesser goal — one that was clearly a big priority before the Tonys were overtaken by the day’s events — consisted of promoting the rising star of CBS late-show host James Corden. There was also the small matter of keeping viewers engaged despite a lack of suspense regarding who would win most of the musical awards. “Hamilton” did, to no one’s surprise: a total of 11. But it’d be hard to find anyone who’d begrudge the wins of the runaway hit, whose cast opened the show with a rap celebrating Corden, did a big number in the third hour, and closed the show with the cast in street clothes singing the pop-driven party song “The Schuyler Sisters.”

“Hamilton’s” big Tony Awards number, “Yorktown,” was introduced in a pre-taped segment by President Obama and his wife, Michelle, and when Miranda won for original score, he was visibly moved as he read a sonnet he’d written. It captured much of the mood of the night: “When senseless acts of tragedy remind us/That nothing here is promised, not one day/The show is proof that history remembers/We lived through times when hate and fear seemed stronger/We rise and fall and light from dying embers/Remembrances that hope and love last longer/Love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love/It cannot be killed or swept aside.”

Corden was an energetic host, even if the opening number meant to showcase his lifelong love of theater felt as though it went on a little long. There was also the inevitable carpool karaoke number (featuring “Hamilton” creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda). Corden was an affable host, and his opening remarks on Orlando — “Theater is a place where every race, creed, sexuality and gender is equal is embraced and is loved. Hate will never win, together we have to make sure of that” — were short but effective.

But as the host’s own father acknowledged, any three-hour awards ceremony starts to feel a bit long once it passes its midpoint. That said, the broadcast generally kept things moving smartly, and for every musical number on the main stage, there was a snippet of an energetic performance by a variety of Broadway casts on a stage outside the theater.

In the drama realm, the wide array of winners kept things up in the air, but every time the camera showed a nominee from another production in the musical realm, those men and women wore the slightly hangdog, bemused looks of people who were pretty sure they weren’t going to win.

That said, it wasn’t all “Hamilton” all the time. (Though who would have complained if it had been?) Celebrity wins like Jessica Lange for “A Long Day’s Journey Into Night” and big-name presenters like Oprah Winfrey, Chita Rivera and Claire Danes kept things relatively energetic. There were also tart, short and smart acceptance speeches from hard-working actors like Reed Birney, who won for his work in “The Humans,” which also had a big night. (Birney told his fellow actors, “I love sharing the planet with all of you.”)

And though the host of any awards show tends to fade out the longer a broadcast lasts, Corden snuck one very funny bit into the middle of the show: A tribute to the number of jobs that the long-running “Law & Order” franchise has provided to New York actors. Danny Burstein, the “Fiddler on the Roof” star, has apparently logged an impressive six different guest roles on the Dick Wolf family of shows.

Providing an exciting and much-deserved upset near the end of the broadcast, Leslie Odom, Jr., who plays Aaron Burr in “Hamilton,” won as best actor in a musical, beating out Miranda, who plays the title role. “I almost didn’t make it here. I almost fell, and every where I looked,” there was a fellow cast member to help him along, Odom said in his acceptance speech, which was, like his performance, full of quiet and unmistakable power. “Hamilton” is a show about “who lives, who dies, who tells your story,” and as the narrator of Hamilton’s journey, Odom is impressively versatile, giving Burr an insistent humanity and a charismatic complexity that made his Tony win quite moving.

Cynthia Erivo, who delivered a powerhouse performance during “The Color Purple’s” number, stopped the “Hamilton” train by winning as best actress in a musical, but that was another win the audience was very happy to applaud.

All in all, the Tony broadcast got the job done in terms of keeping Corden in the public consciousness — but more importantly, the cathartic nature of the musical numbers and a few of the speeches did the helpful, necessary work of channeling a day of difficult emotions.

Good news for Clinton: new season of Homeland features a female president

9 June 2016 8:35 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Claire Danes revealed that the Showtime terrorist drama will have a woman in the White House, no matter who wins in real life – a sign the show is becoming 24

Congratulations, America, you’re finally joining the ranks of so many other countries and getting your first female president. Well, at least we’ll be getting a female president on formerly acclaimed Showtime terrorism series Homeland. I also hate to tell you, it might not necessarily be a good thing.

According to Entertainment Weekly, star Claire Danes said that the show’s upcoming sixth season, which will debut in early 2017, is going to have a female president elect, whether presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton bests reality star Donald Trump in the November election or not.

Thoughts I had while looking at the first "20th Century Women" Image

8 June 2016 4:20 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Readers. I do not know where this image originated but I was so excited when I saw it I stopped breathing for a second. Thoughts that came to me while staring at it without editing them...

I already want to inject this movie directly into my veins. 

The Bening is front and center as it should be. Movies that put her off to the side. They're doing it wrong.

Sometimes it disturbs me when Elle Fanning looks directly into the camera. Like, quite possibly, she's not real. Or maybe an alien (I think she is playing one in How To Talk to Girls At Parties but that's just a clever way to throw us off the scent and hide in plain sight)

Remember when Billy Crudup turned down playing the Hulk in the early Aughts? Remember when Billy Crudup left Mary Louise Parker for Claire Danes when Mlp was pregnant and everyone hated him? »

Homeland Season 6 Will Feature Female President, But Don’t Expect “Hillary Clinton Proxy”

8 June 2016 2:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Pegged for a winter premiere in early 2017, it’s been revealed that Homeland season 6 will feature a story arc involving a female President of the United States – just don’t expect a “Hillary Clinton proxy.”

News comes by way of a Q&A session hosted by series stalwart Claire Danes and executive producer/director Lesli Linka Glatter – as relayed by Variety – noting that the upcoming batch of episodes largely “focus on a female president-elect navigating the transitional period between Election Day and the inauguration.”

There’s no word yet on who will take point as the Commander-in-Chief, but it’s understood the female president-elect “gets along with Carrie Mathison pretty well.” What makes this such a topical plot point is how on Tuesday, June 7, Hillary Clinton made history after clinching the Democratic presidential nomination, becoming the first woman to do so in American history.

Could this be a case of art imitating life? »

Whether or not presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is elected commander-in-chief, 2017 will nonetheless usher in a female president. Claire Danes on Tuesday revealed during a Q&A with Vanity Fair that Homeland‘s upcoming sixth season will focus on the first female president-elect.

Per Variety, the character will not be a Clinton caricature, but instead an amalgamation of all of the different candidates currently in the running. (Let’s just hope she doesn’t have Donald Trump’s hair!)

‘Homeland’ to Feature Female President-Elect in Season 6

7 June 2016 8:26 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Carrie Mathison appears to be enlisting a high-powered ally in Washington for “Homeland’s” sixth season: a Commander-in-Chief who happens to be a woman.

Homeland” star Claire Danes said Tuesday during a Q&A with exec producer/director Lesli Linka Glatter that the upcoming season will focus on a female president-elect navigating the transitional period between Election Day and the inauguration.

Homeland’s” new president will not be a thinly veiled Hillary Clinton figure but rather “a composite of all the different candidates,” Danes said.

The character is a politician who “challenges the norms (and) is a little scary for that reason,” Danes said. And she added: “She gets along with Carrie Mathison pretty well,” a hint that suggests that Mathison may be back in a governmental position when season six begins in January.

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After five nominations for playing Sheila Jackson on “Shameless,” Joan Cusack finally took home the guest actress prize last year. And just in time — she didn’t appear in the show’s most recent season.

That opens the cateogry to a whole new winner, and it might just be someone who will be doubling up on noms this year. Ellen Burstyn [“Mom”] is also a potential nominee for her work on the drama “House of Cards,” as is Carrie Fisher [“Catastrophe”] for “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce.” Tovah Feldshuh stole the show with her “Where’s the Bathroom” number in “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” but could also score a nod on the drama side for her guest work on ‘The Walking Dead.”

Natasha Lyonne [“Portlandia”] did standout work on “Orange Is the New Black,” where her character is sorely missed. Cynthia Nixon [“Broad City”] and Judy Greer [“Mom”] are other actresses pulling double duty on the comedy and drama sides. »

‘Homeland’ Season 5 Finale: Lesli Linka Glatter on That Carrie, Quinn Hospital Scene

6 June 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Although it certainly had just as much bloodshed and high-stakes situations as ever, the fifth season of Showtime’s “Homeland” ended on a quiet note. The last scene in the finale, “A False Glimmer,” focused on two people in a room: one, a comatose Peter Quinn (Rupert Friend) and the other his ally, Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), tormenting herself over the decision to do what she believed her friend would want versus what is legal.

Director and executive producer Lesli Linka Glatter helmed this episode, which was written by Liz Flahive, Alex Gansa and Ron Nyswaner. Glatter says the “extraordinary cross-cultural crew” was a mix of regulars who have been with the show or her for years — such as assistant director Sunday Stevens — and European professionals who joined them for this Berlin-set season.

“For me, personally, no one can make anything without the whole crew; it’s such a team sport we’re in, »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama

2 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Last year, Viola Davis made history as the first African-American woman to win the lead actress prize, and she could well repeat this year for her searing work on “How to Get Away With Murder.” With the exception of Elisabeth Moss, whose “Mad Men” ended its on-air run last year, Davis’ competition is likely to be the same: Claire Danes (“Homeland”), Taraji P. Henson (“Empire”), Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”) and Robin Wright (“House of Cards”).

Or, voters could choose to recognize Julianna Margulies, who has already won twice for “The Good Wife” — most recently in 2014 ­­— yet wasn’t even nominated last year. With the series finale still fresh in voter’s minds, they would be wise to reward Margulies for her seven seasons of remarkable work. Along those lines, Michelle Dockery, nominated in 2012, 2013 and 2014 for “Downton Abbey,” could slip back in now that the show has ended.

In Emmy Best Actress Race, Lead Women Lean Toward Anti-Heroines

2 June 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Move over, Walter White.

Men aren’t the only ones who are asked to play morally ambiguous characters anymore.

This year’s list of Emmy contenders feature female antiheroes making rash, sometimes cringe-worthy decisions and pushing the boundaries of audiences’ likeability and sympathy. Both Taraji P. Henson as Cookie Lyon on Fox’s “Empire” and Robin Wright as Claire Underwood on Netflix’s “House of Cards” play wives scheming with steely determination to reclaim the legacies previously denied to them by their husbands’ actions. And Claire Danes’ Carrie Mathison continues her often reckless pursuit of justice in Showtime’s “Homeland,” sending away her daughter and risking the safety of herself and those who care about her in the process. Questionable parenting choices also color the actions of Vera Farmiga’s Norma Bates in A&E’s “Bates Motel” and Keri Russell’s Kgb mega spy Elizabeth Jennings in FX’s “The Americans. »

Showtime is reportedly on the verge of ordering three seasons of Homeland at once...

Crikey, this is one huge show of confidence. Slashfilm is reporting that Showtime has expanded its plans for Homeland, ordering seasons 7 and 8 on top of the already-confirmed season 6. Claire Daines has signed up for all three seasons, apparently, as has showrunner Alex Gansa.

The premiere of Homeland season 6 has been pushed back to January 2017 (all previous seasons kicked off in October), but after that there should be no shortage of new episodes. 

Deadline has some extra information, and has released these details regarding the plot of season 6:

"Like it did with its Europe-set fifth season, Homeland is poised to mirror reality, as Season 6 is set following the U.S. presidential election.

"After she thwarted a terrorist attack in Berlin, season six picks up several months later and finds Carrie Mathison (Danes) back on American soil, »
