'Go On': Tyler James Williams on working Matthew Perry and Owen's family

13 November 2012 1:50 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Go On" returns to NBC Tuesday (Nov. 13) after a two-week break -- and the first episode back is one of the best the series has done so far.

It's called "Videogame, Set, Match" and revolves heavily around the relationship between Ryan (Matthew Perry) and Owen (Tyler James Williams), who recognized each other as kindred spirits in their therapy group early on but haven't spent a ton of time together outside the group.

That changes when Ryan offers Owen an internship at his radio station -- a nice gesture that goes somewhat awry for the characters. It's a good thing for the audience, though, because Williams and Perry have very good comedic chemistry.

"It's been great," Williams ("Everybody Hates Chris") says of working with Perry. "The good thing is, the way it's written, we have a lot to play off of with each other. Owen and Ryan are I think [two] of »

Opening Weekend Numbers For 'The Obama Effect,' 'Pelotero,' 'Family Portrait In Black & White'

17 July 2012 9:17 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

In so-called specialty box office... 2 indie films of note that opened over the weekend. First - The Obama Effect, directed by Charles S. Dutton (he also stars it by the way), and co-stars Vanessa Bell CallowayKatt WilliamsMegan GoodWesley Jonathan and Glynn Turman. It opened in limited release in the USA (25 screens to be exact), and if you saw it over the weekend, I'd like to know what you thought of it. So please share in the comments section. The social media campaign for it was quite relentless, from my Pov, as there likely wasn't much of a marketing budget.  So how did it do? Not that great unfortunately. »

New In USA Theaters - 'The Obama Effect,' 'Family Portrait In Black & White,' 'Ballplayer: Pelotero'

13 July 2012 7:32 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

First... it's titled The Obama Effect, directed by Charles S. Dutton (he also stars it by the way), and co-stars Vanessa Bell CallowayKatt Williams, Megan Good, Wesley Jonathan and Glynn Turman. Here's the official synopsis which I think it gives too much of the film away:  A serious health scare ignites John Thomas, an insurance salesman in his 50’s (played by writer/director Charles S. Dutton) to take a closer look at his life. Motivated by a misguided obsession with getting Barack Obama elected, John takes an overwhelming involvement in the Presidential campaign. While John becomes obsessed with the ideal of change that Obama »

It's titled The Obama Effect, directed by Charles S. Dutton (he also stars it by the way), and co-stars Vanessa Bell CallowayKatt Williams, Megan Good, Wesley Jonathan and Glynn Turman. Here's the official synopsis reads: The Obama Effect is a dramedy about John Thomas (Charles S. Dutton), an insurance salesman, who suddenly takes an overwhelming interest in the 2008 Obama campaign after a serious health scare changes his view on life. The movie follows the Thomas family, friends and foes through this historic time in American history.

First look at 'The Obama Effect' with Katt Williams, Charles S. Dutton (Video)

11 June 2012 12:35 PM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Check out the latest trailer for "The Obama Effect," starring Katt Williams, Charles S. Dutton, Meagan Good, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Emilio Rivera, Glynn Turman and Zab Judah. In the beginning of the 21st century, no one ever thought that an African-American would become the first President of the United States. But it happened, and an entire country celebrated the exceptional efforts pulled off by citizens ready for sweeping change. But this change didn.t come without effort. It required a unification of all people from all races and nationalities, which is what "The Obama Effect" is about. This film centers around a middle-aged man (Charles S. Dutton) who is faced with some difficult life questions after having a heart attack. »

Exclusive Set Report and Photo Gallery from H.M. Coakley's Hollaback

26 January 2012 5:35 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Stepping onto the set of writer/director H.M. Coakley’s horror whodunit Hollaback last year on December 18th, the first few things that became readily apparent were the blood trail which serpentined across the wood flooring of the 130-year-old Los Angeles Antebellum mansion (doubling for the deep South) and the flick’s ‘token white chick,’ who came in the form of actress Allison Kyler. The third was the abundance of enthusiasm for the production which was mirrored by cast and crew alike.

Arriving to set on day eleven of fifteen and greeted by Hollaback associate producer and casting director Venk Modur, we conducted the majority of our hushed interviews against the aural backdrop of screams and whimpering as writer and director Coakley led his cast through the film’s scripted carnage.
