Clayne Crawford on Having Relaxed Douche Face and Defending Rectify’s Poor Ted Jr.

11 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Chances are you know Clayne Crawford as that guy who always plays the jerk-off. The actor, 36, has long been typecast as the villain, most recently in 24 and Justified, and going back to his smirkiest work in teen movies like Swimfan and A Walk to Remember. But in Ray McKinnon’s outstanding small-town drama Rectify, Crawford gets to be heartbreaking as a frustrated tire salesman whose world is turned upside down when his brother-in-law is released from Death Row. Vulture chatted with Crawford about feeling bad for fratty Ted Jr., long days on set, and coming to terms with a chronic case of what he calls relaxed douche face.Things are falling apart for Teddy. His marriage is in trouble. The tire business is in bad shape. I’m sure there are plenty of people who still want to punch him for the way he treats Daniel, but I just feel »

Emily Mortimer Turns an Eye Toward the Spectral

7 July 2014 3:34 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Another bit of casting news has arrived for the latest spooker from Legendary Pictures, titled Spectral, as Shutter Island's Emily Mortimer is now in negotiations to start ghostbusting with the military!

She will join the previously announced Clayne Crawford, Cory Hardrict, James Badge Dale, and Max Martini. The flick is being directed by Nic Matthieu for Universal and Legendary.

The premise of the project is centered on a modern-day, militaristic, and gritty approach to fighting the supernatural.

The pitch, which sold for six figures, has been described as a darker and more serious take on a Ghostbusters-like story with a plot that revolves around a special ops group formed to bring down evil ghosts that have taken over Manhattan. Locations and details might change, however.

More on this one soon!

Emily Mortimer Will Star In Spectral Alongside James Badge Dale

7 July 2014 12:09 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though her last big screen role was in 2011′s Hugo, Emily Mortimer has been keeping plenty busy on the small screen, starring on two HBO series, The Newsroom and Doll & Em, the latter of which she created and wrote. Now, we’re hearing that the talented actress will be making her way back to the big screen with a starring role in Legendary’s upcoming supernatural military thriller, Spectral.

Mortimer is set to star as a CIA mission leader in the movie, which is described as a supernatural Black Hawk Down and focuses on “a special-ops team that fights supernatural beings that have taken over a European city.” Dale, known for supporting roles in The Grey, Iron Man 3 and World War Z, boarded the project a few months back as a researcher.

It was previously reported that Spectral would find the special-ops team combatting a threat to New York City, »

Aden Young, Adelaide Clemens, and Bruce McKinnon Talk Rectify Season 2, What Sets the Show Apart, Ray McKinnon’s Stunning Writing, and More

19 June 2014 5:55 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Returning to TV screens this week is the Sundance original series Rectify.  At the start of the first season we saw Daniel Holden (Aden Young) released from 19 years on death row thanks to the tireless efforts of his sister Amantha (Abigail Spencer) and newly uncovered DNA evidence suggesting he may not have been responsible for the rape and murder of his high school sweetheart.  However, nothing is cut and dry in Rectify's small town of Paulie, Georgia and many bitter residents, including Daniel's stepbrother Teddy Talbot Jr (Clayne Crawford), still believe Daniel to be guilty.  At the end of season one that bitterness boiled over as a group of vigilantes took justice into their own hands.  Picking up where it left off, Rectify season 2 finds the Holden-Talbot family dealing with the aftermath of yet another tragic act of violence.  Rectify also stars Adelaide Clemens, J Smith-Cameron, Luke Kirby, Bruce McKinnon, »

Casting Update for Spectral

19 June 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We’ve seen some heavy-duty modern warfare films over the past decade, but none of them featured ghosts as the enemy. That’s the twist in Legendary Pictures’ upcoming supernatural thriller Spectral, which is beginning to take shape now that another actor has joined the cast.

Deadline reports that Clayne Crawford (SundanceTV’s Rectify) has signed on to play the role of Sergeant Calvin Toll, “a focused but short-fused military lifer.” Crawford joins a cast that includes James Badge Dale (World War Z) in a lead role and actors Max Martini (Pacific Rim) and Cory Hardrict (Battle Los Angeles). Spectral, described as a “supernatural Black Hawk Down,” will be directed by first-timer Nic Mathieu and was originally written by George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureau) based on a pitch by Ian Fried, before later receiving the rewrite treatment from John Gatins (Flight, Real Steel).

Spectral will follow a special forces unit »

When 'whodunit?' is beside the point: The artful, absorbing ambiguities of 'Rectify'

19 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Daniel Holden wanders his world dazed and confused, humbled and harrowed, like a fuzzy-headed Lazarus lost for bearings after getting called out of the tomb. Whether this dead man walking deserves his miraculous parole is the hazy question mark at the center of Rectify, a somber existential mystery about historical injustice, guilt, alienation, and other deep stuff. Season 1 tracked and pondered its protagonist, a veritable philosophical zombie, as he shuffled back and through his hometown of Paulie, Georgia — a fictional place; the name suggests (to me) sudden impact Pauline conversions and that apostle’s legendary jailbreak — after 19 years on death »

Review: Sundance's 'Rectify' still slow, steady and brilliant in season 2

19 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The events of the first season of "Rectify," the Sundance Channel drama about Death Row inmate Daniel Holden's return to freedom after his conviction is overturned, took place over a single week following Daniel's release. It was a short period of time and yet — longer than a "24" season, but much shorter than a "Mad Men" season — as Daniel tells a friend, "Every day felt like a lifetime." For some viewers of "Rectify," which begins its second season tonight at 9, that elongated sense of time will be exactly why they love it. The show doesn't move from incident to incident the way virtually every other show on television does, but rather stops to marinate in the sticky Southern atmosphere and in the complicated emotions engendered by Daniel's release among his family, his enemies, and even himself. It is a show in which you would be hard-pressed to describe the plot of »

‘Rectify’ Season 2 Premiere: Cast Previews ‘Devastating’ Consequences, Personal Journeys

17 June 2014 10:24 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The stars of SundanceTV’s “Rectify” were out in full force to celebrate season two of the critically-acclaimed drama on Monday night, packing the Sundance Sunset Cinema for a screening of the season premiere before taking the party across the street to Chateau Marmont.

Guests sipped on champagne and iced tea with a kick in one of Chateau’s private bungalows, while the cast talked to Variety poolside about the success of the measured character drama, which Variety TV Critic Brian Lowry described as “consistently compelling.”

Rectify” centers around Daniel Holden (Aden Young) who, after spending 19 years on death row for the rape and murder of his teenage girlfriend, has his conviction overturned thanks to newly discovered DNA evidence. Season one covered the first week following his release, culminating in a violent confrontation that saw Daniel beaten and left for dead by the vengeful brother of the girl he was alleged to have murdered. »

TV Review: ‘Rectify,’ Season Two

16 June 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The little series that could, “Rectify” is such a wispy construct, where events unfold so languidly, it’s a puzzle why the hours fly by and prove consistently compelling. Much of it has to do with the casting — which is dead-on from top to bottom, and indeed, gives the supporting players more work through the early stages of season two. Whatever the reasons, this SundanceTV drama, anchored by Aden Young’s out-of-body calm in the lead role, was one of 2013’s most pleasant surprises, and continues in that vein in this new 10-episode run.

Young plays Daniel Holden, whose imprisonment on death row for murder was overturned, and whose release back into the world, after 19 years, set all sorts of unexpected events into motion. That included the brutal assault on him that closed the first season, with the aftermath of that violence dominating the early stages here, as Daniel initially lays in a coma, »

Why You Should Be Watching: Rectify

31 May 2014 12:57 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Rectify

Created by Ray McKinnon

Stars Aden Young, Abigail Spencer, J. Smith-Cameron, Adelaide Clemons, and Clayne Crawford

Season two begins June 19th at 9pm Et on Sundance (season 1 available on Netflix)

 

There are plenty of television shows in 2014 with the ability to amaze an audience, surprising them with bold stories, impressing them with elaborate visuals, or engaging them by drawing parallels to our own world and lives. Many of these shows rank among the best on television, regularly analyzed by critics for their ability to blend cinematic elements, symbolic metaphors, and poignant dissections of life, that blend of intelligent and entertaining that’s hard to find at the box office in this day and age of loud tent poles and cliche, overwrought ‘indie’ films.

However, these great shows (of which there are too many to name in this small space), there have been but a few that can transcend entertainment »
