Carla Gugino on Playing Strong Women in ‘San Andreas,’ ‘Wayward Pines’ and ‘The Brink’

20 August 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In three starkly different projects this summer, Carla Gugino has played a mom who helps rescue her daughter from the Big One in “San Andreas,” a Secret Service agent in Fox limited series “Wayward Pines,” and a lawyer who has an open marriage with the secretary of state on HBO political satire “The Brink.” The 44-year-old actress found one common thread among the characters — they’re all innately strong women.

How was it juggling these three projects?

I am definitely a workhorse. I feel fortunate to work in a business that is predominantly made up of people who love what we do, and don’t think twice about working a 14-hour day.

What do you like best about “The Brink”?

It’s a bright, talented, funny group of people with a clear vision of what they want the show to be. And I loved the wacky complicated dynamic between Tim (Robbins)’ character and mine. »

18 New Movies to Watch at Home This Week

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. Match Tobi (Patrick Stewart) is an eccentric ballet instructor at the prestigious Juilliard School in New York City who fills his free time with knitting, drinking and rooftop dancing in place of personal connections. He grants an interview to a woman (Carla Gugino) working on a dissertation about dance troupes in the ’60s. Her husband (Matthew Lillard) is along for the ride, but as the interview progresses it becomes clear that the couple may be there under false pretenses. “I love my life. I regret my life,” says Tobi. “The lines eventually blur, and it’s just my life.” This feels very much like an adaptation of a play, which it is, but Stewart’s dialogue is so sharp and colorful that he can’t help but leap from the screen.

Carla Gugino will star in Showtime’s “Roadies” pilot, replacing Christina Hendricks, Variety has confirmed.

The recasting marks a major redevelopment on the pilot, as creator Cameron Crowe is in the process of rewriting the original, and the role Gugino is filling has been entirely reconceived.

An intergalactic love story originally set up at now-bankrupt Relativity under the title "Out of This World" has now migrated to Stx Entertainment, a fast-growing, deep-pocketed film and TV studio launched last year by Robert Simonds. Relativity, which has had a hell of a week, had not fully greenlit the project when Stx began bidding in mid-July. But the film had a script from Allan Loeb and a director, Peter Chelsom ("Hector and the Search for Happiness"), who's staying onboard. Based on a story written by Richard Lewis, Stewart Schill and Loeb, the film is now untitled and is set to star Gary Oldman, Asa Butterfield, Carla Gugino and Britt Robertson.

Wayward Pines, Ep. 1.10, “Cycle”: The circle is now complete

24 July 2015 7:45 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Wayward Pines, Season 1, Episode 10, “Cycle”

Written by The Duffer Brothers and Blake Crouch and Chad Hodge

Directed by Tim Hunter

Airs Thursdays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

Ever since Wayward Pines was announced as an M. Night Shyamalan project, the threat of the twist ending is one that’s hung over the entire series. For better or worse, Shyamalan’s name is associated with stories that try to come out of left field in the apex of the third act and surprise you with the idea that nothing you’ve witnessed is what it seems, ends that enjoy their trickiness so much it keeps them blind to the fact that they don’t bear up under scrutiny. And given the early ads for the show, which were heavy on that symbolism—as well as too heavy on imagery and quotes that invited unflattering Twin Peaks comparisons—it was hard to »

Wayward Pines: Season Two Still Possible Say Exec Producers

24 July 2015 10:46 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though Fox clearly said that last night's episode of Wayward Pines was the series finale, there's still talk of bringing the show back for a second season.

On Wayward Pines, Secret Service Agent Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon) drives to the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, in search of two missing federal agents. One was a former partner and they once had an affair. A truck slams into his car, he wakes up in the local hospital, and things start to get really strange. The cast of this thriller series also includes Terrence Howard, Melissa Leo, Carla Gugino, Toby Jones, Shannyn Sossamon, Charlie Tahan, Reed Diamond, Juliette Lewis, and Tim Griffin.

Regarding the possibility of a second season, showrunner Chad Hodge didn't have any news to share but didn't rule out a renewal either. He told THR, "There is no official season two yet, no »

‘Wayward Pines’ Finale Can’t See the Forest For the Trees (Spoilers)

23 July 2015 11:21 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wayward Pines” started with one of those “The Twilight Zone”-like mysteries and rode that for several episodes, before belching out its big secret in one long bit of exposition halfway through its run. And frankly, whatever one might think of the novels on which the program was based, it never recovered, dramatically speaking, from that juncture, leading up to a season (and possibly series) finale that was chaotic, violent and unsatisfying. When an hour of television is most memorable for its fleeting “The X-Files” tease, something has been lost in translation.

Yes, there were some big deaths in the final hour (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched), after the genetically aberrant monsters humankind has become in 4028 penetrated the town’s defenses, feasting on the populace. Yet one can argue that the dramatic tension oozed out of the show shortly after the midway point, once it became clear »

HBO Renews The Brink For Season 2

22 July 2015 6:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The world will continue to teeter on The Brink for a while longer – HBO has handed out a second season order to the freshman political comedy, which was created by Roberto and Kim Benabib.

Jack Black, Tim Robbins and Pablo Schreiber topline the show, about how a geopolitical crisis affects three different men – a lowly Foreign Service officer (Black), the U.S. Secretary of State (Robbins) and a loose-cannon fighter pilot (Schreiber). Maribeth Monroe, Carla Gugino, Esai Morales, Geoff Pierson, Aasif Mandvi and Eric Ladin all co-star.

In its first season, The Brink was an imperfect but nonetheless watchable comedy that seemed to fall a little short of its potential, focusing on broad raunchy humor as opposed to legitimately toothy political satire. I wrote in my three-star review:

That the threat of nuclear Armageddon only accelerates the volume of dick jokes in The Brink’s war room is at one »
