'Veep' Boss on Fan-Favorite's Surprise Return

28 May 2017 8:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Sunday's episode of Veep, "Blurb."]

The one that got away made his return on Sunday's Veep.

Amid a season that has sent ex-president Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) on a journey in search of a companion just as much as of her legacy, the former Potus decided to pay a visit to her old flame Tom James (Hugh Laurie) and give him an in-person heads-up that she was going to reveal their dalliance in the White House Green Room in her in-the-works memoir. Tom ends up usurping her juicy chapter by telling the »

Sci-Fi and Comic Book Shows Are Getting Serious Awards Attention: How Bold DPs are Changing the Race

26 May 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Call them the Dp disruptors: “Legion,” “Stranger Things,” “Westworld,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and “Taboo.” It’s one thing to be for cinematography to be cinematic, but quite another to provoke. Here’s a look at the cinematography that was used to explore the impacts of tyranny and hate, of societies turned upside down and against humanity.

Legion

After re-imagining “Fargo” as a nightmarish crime anthology, Noah Hawley stripped the superhero iconography out of Marvel’s “Legion” by concentrating on schizophrenia and paranoia. Dan Stevens’ troubled mutant, David Haller, proves to be an unreliable narrator, unable to grasp the difference between reality and imagination, who meets the girl of his dreams (Rachel Keller) in a mental hospital and discovers that his psychological instability is a result of special telepathic power.

Cinematographer Dana Gonzales (“Fargo”) liked a story that demanded a shift from naturalistic to heightened. “And there’s a love »

‘Fargo’: David Thewlis on the Details and Delight of Playing a Bad Guy Who’s ‘Out and Out Foul’

26 May 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When “Fargo” Year 3 announced its cast, Ewan McGregor was clearly the biggest name involved, and the fact that he would be playing brothers had everyone intrigued.

But in subsequent weeks, fans aren’t clamoring for McGregor’s Ray or Emmit, but they are obsessed with the character of V.M. Varga. And that’s because David Thewlis is turning in one of the spring’s darkest, most horrifying supporting performances, one that will be hard to overlook this Emmy season.

Varga enters the world of “Fargo” cloaked in mystery, after Emmit (McGregor) discovers that a business deal he made has brought Varga into his business as an investor. As the season has progressed, we’ve come to learn more about the reedy man with a British accent and no scruples — including his eating habits, »

‘The Bachelorette’ and Lionel Richie Re-Enacted, ‘Veep’s’ Best Insults — This Week’s Best Late Night TV

26 May 2017 12:03 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With so many shows running every weeknight, it makes sense that you can’t keep up on everything. So here’s a recap of the week’s highlights, thanks to the magic of YouTube.

“Sing After You Cry”

Ben Platt, the star of the Broadway favorite “Dear Evan Hanson,” appeared on “Late Show” this week, and offered some amazing advice on why singing on stage can actually be helped by tears. That’s in the interview below:

And for a taste of what that means, just watch Platt singing a signature number from the show live:

Not bad, sir. Not bad.

Not That We’ll Admit to Watching “The Bachelorette,” But…

A truly horrific dude made his primetime debut during the season premiere, and the best way to process it is to watch two true gentlemen of The Roots reenact a key interaction on “The Tonight Show. ”

Mitt Romney Helped ‘Veep’ Showrunner Convey Selina Meyer’s Presidential Loss

26 May 2017 11:33 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The band may have been broken up in Season 6 of HBO’s “Veep,” but the actors chatted and laughed as though nothing was different at the Saban Media Center in North Hollywood Thursday evening.

The Fyc event took place on the heels of the news that the political satire had been renewed for a Season 7, and featured a screening of the seventh episode of the current season. Afterwards, People magazine editor-in-chief Jess Cagle hosted a panel of the ensemble cast, including Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tony Hale, Anna Chlumsky, Reid Scott, Matt Walsh, Kevin Dunn, Gary Cole, and Sam Richardson, and showrunner Dave Mandel.

Mandel took over writing for “Veep” after the end of Season 4, and is responsible for both the storyline of Season 5, which saw President Selina Meyer lose her presidency and the Season 6 plotline in which many of the main cast — no longer employed by Selina — have gone their separate ways.

‘Black Mirror’: Why Charlie Brooker Wrote ‘San Junipero’ To Screw with His Netflix Critics

26 May 2017 9:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Netflix announced it would finance the third season of the British sci-fi anthology “Black Mirror,” series creator Charlie Brooker knew he’d be accused of selling out. And then, the much-regarded, much-discussed “San Junipero” episode seemed to confirm his critics’ worst fears. For a show that revolved around dark stories of the future in which technology wreaks havoc, here was a fairly optimistic story about two women failing in love in the virtual-reality world of a sunny California beach town in the ’80s.

“‘San Junipero’ was the first script I wrote for season three, and it was partly I thought I’m going to blow up my idea of what a ‘Black Mirror’ episode is, so it has a very different tone,” said Brooker, who joined IndieWire’s Filmmaker Toolkit podcast with executive producer Annabel Jones. “And partly, I’d read people moaning, ‘Oh, I see Black Mirror’s gone to Netflix, »

Ted Danson Almost Spoiled ‘The Good Place’ Twist Because He Couldn’t Stop Telling All His Friends

26 May 2017 8:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Warning: this post contains spoilers for Season 1 of “The Good Place.”]

The mammoth bait-and-switch revealed in the season finale of “The Good Place” is still one of the best TV moments of the year. Ted Danson is happy he didn’t screw it up.

Speaking at a Writers Guild Foundation event on Thursday night in Hollywood, the show’s executive producer Michael Schur revealed that the legendary actor was less than secretive about the true nature of “The Good Place.”

“We were super, super careful,” Schur said, describing the efforts he and the writing staff went through to conceal the last episode’s big revelation. “Then after the finale aired, Ted was like, ‘I’m so happy that no one found out, because I told everyone. I literally told anyone who asked.’”

Danson, who was also on the panel, explained why the impulse to say more than he should have kept coming up. “You’d be telling your fellow actors or »

‘Veep’ Stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Timothy Simons on How Trump Presidency Has Changed Show

A version of this cover story about “Veep” first appeared in The Race Begins issue of TheWrap Emmy Magazine. Her: a veteran politician who briefly held lots of power and then saw it slip away. Him: a dope who somehow managed to scrape together enough votes to be elected to an office for which he is monumentally unsuited. Any resemblance to real people, living or dead, is strictly coincidental. Or maybe it’s not. “I would like to take this opportunity to personally apologize for the current political climate,” said “Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus in September, when she won her fifth consecutive Emmy. »

‘Billions’: How Gender-Neutral Star Asia Kate Dillon Elevated Season 2 To Emmy Contender Status

22 May 2017 12:41 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Showtime’s Wall Street drama series “Billions” came up empty Emmy nominations morning last July. Although the show’s first season was both popular and well-reviewed, there’s a lot of shows that fit the same bill.

This year, things could be different thanks to Asia Kate Dillon’s performance as Taylor Mason. Sporting a shaved head and buttoned-down men’s clothes, the actor portrays a whip-thin Mensa-level analyst who was born female and identifies as non-binary.

Showrunner Brian Koppelman learned about non-binary fluidity from his kids. “I was fascinated,” he said. “It seemed to fill something Dave [Levien] and I were looking for, a character to come in from the external world, an atypical intern that Axe recognizes could be helpful.”

“It did free us up have a different lens to look at Axe Capital,” said Levien, who also serves as showrunner. “On the surface they are all looking at Taylor, »
