‘Knight Rider,’ ‘Boy Meets World’ Actor William Daniels on His Early Career

17 March 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

You might not know the name William Daniels, but you probably know his face — and if not his face, certainly his voice. The actor made a name for himself in the 1960 Off Broadway premiere of Edward Albee’s “The Zoo Story.” He hit the big screen in “The Graduate” and “Two for the Road” and spent the 1980s in iconic TV shows, “St. Elsewhere” and “Knight Rider” (in which he memorably voiced the car). A seven-season run in “Boy Meets World” kept him on TV throughout the 1990s. Now 89, he has written a memoir, “There I Go Again: How I Came to Be Mr. Feeny, John Adams, Dr. Craig, Kitt, & Many Others.”

Daniels began performing as a child, appearing with his sister as a song-and-dance act in the 1930s. His first mention in Variety was for “Seagulls Over Sorrento,” a play that ran in Westport, Conn., before flopping on Broadway. »

Universal Buys Minority Stake in Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners

15 February 2017 6:54 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal Filmed Entertainment has agreed to buy a minority stake in Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners. As part of the deal, the studio’s chairman Jeff Shell will join the Amblin board.

Universal joins a group of investors in the film and television company that includes Participant Media, Reliance Entertainment, Entertainment One (eOne), and Alibaba Pictures. Universal became the distributor of Amblin films in late 2015 when Amblin Partners was launched as a successor to DreamWorks Studios.

The company had previously been housed at Disney, releasing hits like “Lincoln,” but also a string of misfires that included “Need for Speed,” “The Fifth Estate,” and last summer’s box office disaster “The Bfg,” which Spielberg also directed.

Universal did not disclose the size of the investment. A source close to the deal said that the studio never saw the alliance as a straight distribution deal. It always saw the pact with Amblin as a financial partnership, »

‘La La Land,’ ‘Moonlight’ and ‘Manchester by the Sea’ Casting Directors Share Tricks of Trade

18 January 2017 2:27 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The 32nd Annual Artios Awards, taking place on Thursday night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, come at an auspicious time for the artists honored. In 2013, after years of lobbying, the Academy created a new Casting Directors Branch — and at November’s Governors Awards, legendary casting director Lynn Stalmaster received an Honorary Oscar, the first ever bestowed on a member of his profession. Can an actual Oscar category for casting be far behind? That remains to be seen — adding categories is unquestionably a tough call for the Academy already under fire for the length of the annual telecast. In »
