2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Since 2010, the Emmy for supporting actor in a comedy has been shared between two shows, “Modern Family” and “Veep.” Tony Hale looks like a sure bet to score another nom after two wins, though the “Veep” ensemble is so strong, the entire category could comprise actors on the show. Likewise, the “Modern Family” cast is flawless, though two-time winners Eric Stonestreet and Ty Burrell have thus far been rewarded while Ed O’Neill and Jesse Tyler Ferguson have not.

Another great TV family can be found on “Transparent,” which could benefit Jay Duplass. Likewise, Laurence Fishburne is a standout as the grandfather on “Black-ish.”

And while technically not related, the supporting actors who make up the dysfunctional family of “Silicon Valley” are an embarrassment of riches — T.J. Miller should score a nomination just for his scene in episode four in which he delivers his lines while coughing and laughing simultaneously after a harsh bong hit. »

How Jay Duplass Discovered the Actor Inside Him: Video Interview

3 June 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Jay Duplass grew up in New Orleans playing a very defined role: Director.

While Jay said his younger brother Mark was his collaborator as they “made things,” including magic shows and movies, Mark was always the subject, in front of the camera. Jay was behind the camera. His job was to make all their crazy ideas work, he said: “Mark would throw us off a cliff and I would make sure we had a parachute and food.”

So it came as something of a surprise when showrunner Jill Soloway decided that Jay was perfect casting as Josh Pfefferman in her new Amazon series, “Transparent.”

He wasn’t sure, having just played a small roles in a Joe Swanberg movie and “The Mindy Project” and taken one intensive Sandy Meisner class in Austin, Texas.  “It was basically like learning how to be totally vulnerable and divulge all of our hangups and let it rip, »

Judith Light Talks ‘Transparent’ Season 2 Bathtub Scene

3 June 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Judith Light’s Shelly Pfefferman was already one of the most enjoyable parts of “Transparent” season one, and the Amazon dramedy’s second season only gave Light more room to explore the lovably meddling mama. But her standout moment came — excuse the pun — early, when Shelly and her ex, Maura [Jeffrey Tambor], share a steamy encounter in the bathroom. On the page it looked like a daunting task, but the intimacy was crucial to the story. As usual, Light pulls the scene off with aplomb. “It took so much for me to get there not only personally and internally,” Light says. “The support that I got was so huge and so incredible.”

Emilia Clarke, Jay Duplass on Difficulties of Filming ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Transparent’ Sex Scenes

31 May 2016 9:36 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Emilia Clarke and Jay Duplass talked each other through the uncomfortable experience of filming sex scenes during a one-on-one interview for Variety and PBS’ “Actors on Actors” series.

“There was one day in the first season of ‘Transparent,’ probably about seven days in, where what everyone thought was going to be my most fun day, where I had to have sex with four strangers on camera,” said Duplass. “I went to Catholic school. I’ve had like four girlfriends in my entire life. Like my character on the show has had sex with more people in season one than I’ve had in my entire life.”

While Duplass did say filming sex scenes can be funny after the fact, he admitted it feels weird taping the scenes with so many people standing on set and watching.

Things aren’t much easier for Clarke, who’s also had some challenging times »

A version of this story first appeared in the print edition of TheWrap Magazine’s Emmy Issue The Race Begins. Double dates are typically a recipe for disaster or, worse, boredom — yet HBO seemed to find a sweet spot with “Togetherness,” the drama about two couples that the cable network announced would not be returning for a third season when it ended its run in April. The series was created by mumblecore masters Mark and Jay Duplass, who have enjoyed a hot streak lately thanks to projects like Jay’s role on the Amazon series “Transparent” and their producer credits on several. »
