Jeffrey Tambor on Transparent, How the Role Compares to George Bluth Sr., and His Underwear Scene

10 April 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In Amazon’s just-green-lit dramedy TransparentJeffrey Tambor plays the patriarch of a self-involved, dysfunctional clan in Los Angeles who very much wants to tell his family something. [Note: If you haven’t yet seen the pilot episode and would prefer not to have certain plot points spoiled for you by this interview, you can do so here.] To make the announcement, he invites over his three grown children, including twins played by Gaby Hoffmann and Jay Duplass, but can't bring himself to spill the big news; viewers slowly gain insight into what he was hoping to tell them through glimpses into his evolving personal life. When Vulture ran into Tambor at the opening night of the Broadway play The Realistic Joneses a few days ago, we had a spur-of-the-moment chat about the Jill Soloway–created show and his daring role in it. [Spoilers commence!]What did you think when you were first reading the »

Mark Duplass and Blumhouse Teaming with RADiUS for Creep Franchise; Will Begin Production on Second and Third Installments

7 April 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Mark Duplass got his start in very low-budget independent cinema with dramatic films like The Puffy Chair, Cyrus, and Jeff, Who Lives At Home, which he co-wrote and co-directed with his brother Jay Duplass.  Recently, Mark teamed up with producer Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions—the studio behind the low-budget horror movement that has spawned Paranormal Activity, The Purge, and Sinister franchises—for a different kind of low-budget feature: a psychological horror film called Creep.  The film revolves around a man (Patrick Brice) who answers a cryptic online ad asking for a filming service.  He arrives at a remote location and begins filming his subject, Josef (Duplass), but as the day goes on, he begins to suspect Josef isn’t really who he says he is. The pic recently debuted at the SXSW Film Festival to a positive response, and not only has RADiUS-twc now picked the film up for distribution, »

RaDiUS-twc Partners with Blum and Duplass on 'Creep' Trilogy, "Utterly Insane New Franchise" (Exclusive Video)

7 April 2014 11:27 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Following the SXSW premiere of low-budget psychological thriller "Creep," RADiUS-twc is partnering with Mark and Jay Duplass and Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions on a "Creep" trilogy which Duplass calls an "utterly insane new franchise." (My SXSW interview with Blum and Duplass is below.) SXSW often features a movie that Mark Duplass has dabbled in. Thriller "Creep" was this year's model. As busy as he is, multi-tasker Duplass ("The League," "Cyrus," "Safety Not Guaranteed," "Your Sister's Sister") enjoys collaborating with young filmmakers--in this case recent Cal Arts grad Patrick Brice, whose thesis film "Maurice" played Rotterdam and won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Short Doc at the Florida Film Festival. They co-wrote and filmed this found-footage two-hander off a ten-page outline. Instead of writing a long script, they skipped to the shooting phase, spending a few weeks at a remote cabin near Big Bear, »

SXSW 2014: An Unexpectedly Musical Finale

16 March 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

My last movie for SXSW this year was the amusing Space Station 76, at Stateside. I planned to walk a little bit around downtown afterward and maybe take some photos of various interesting SXSW sights, if it didn't rain again. I chatted a little outside the theater with local actor Sam Eidson (Zero Charisma, SXSW 2013), who was still planning to see movies that day. I almost literally ran into Austin filmmaker Emily Hagins (Grow Up, Tony Phillips, SXSW 2013) as I walked down Congress to Sixth.

As I was passing Wholly Cow Burgers, a musician was playing a guitar under the awning, a frequent sight during non-rainy SXSW days. He looked so energetic and happy that I snapped his photo a couple of times, and we exchanged waves. I stopped briefly to listen and liked the music -- not a crappy cover pandering to passersby, not someone loudly learning to play. »

The Art of Storytelling– Jill Soloway gets “Transparent” for Amazon Studios

28 February 2014 11:03 AM, PST | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

Prior to the release of her Amazon Original pilot, Transparent, we asked creator Jill Soloway a few questions on the art of storytelling, her inspirations and the future of her new show. Read the article below.

Writer/Director/Producer Jill Soloway has always considered herself a “storyteller first and a filmmaker by necessity”.  As a child, she and her sister created and performed plays for anyone that they could get to watch.  This evolved into a drive to write and direct films and TV and to tell longer and better kinds of stories.  Her career has been a successful one, serving as a writer and producer for series such as United States of Tara and Six Feet Under - for which she was nominated for 3 primetime Emmy Awards and a WGA award.  She also took home the Best Director prize at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival for her feature film Afternoon Delight »

Duplass Bros. Developing Teacher/Student Relationship Drama 'A Teacher' For HBO

12 February 2014 2:24 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One of the more striking little flicks of last year was “A Teacher,” Hannah Fidell's debut film about a teacher having a liaison with one of her male pupils. It wasn't perfect (read our review), but it was a good piece of work about a difficult subject (see also: “Notes on a Scandal”). And now we're going to see that story unfold on a bigger scale. The folks over at HBO are talking about making it into a TV series, with Fidell back, executive producing and writing, and brotherly polymaths Jay Duplass and Mark Duplass producing alongside Michael Costigan (producer, of all of Ridley Scott's recent movies). What's not clear is if the actors would be returning, or whether the show would focus on different people but the same dynamic. It seems like the project is still getting its ducks in a row, but it certainly is territory ripe for some good drama. »

Why 'Transparent' Creator Jill Soloway Feels the Amazon Pilot Process is 'Revolutionary'

Before she made her directorial debut with "Afternoon Delight," which starred Kathryn Hahn, Juno Temple and Josh Radnor and premiered at Sundance last year, Jill Soloway worked in television as a writer and producer on series like "United States of Tara" (for which she was showrunner) and "Six Feet Under" (which netted her three Emmy nominations).

A half-hour comedy, "Transparent" is the story of a Los Angeles family -- the divorced parents played by Jeffrey Tambor and Judith Light, with Jay DuplassGaby Hoffmann and Amy Landecker as their grown children. Warm but sharp-edged in its dialogue, "Transparent" is easily the best of the new pilots -- you can watch it online here. Indiewire caught up with Soloway by phone »
