‘Orange Is the New Black’ Season 4: Lori Petty Talks Lolly’s Fate

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

[Spoiler alert: The following interview discusses plot points from the entire fourth season of “Orange Is the New Black.” Do not read until you’ve watched.]

Lori Petty’s Lolly Whitehill is such a central part of “Orange Is the New Black” season 4, that it’s easy to forget she hasn’t been there all along.

After a brief guest turn in the second season premiere (when Piper was on the plane to Chicago), Lolly returned last season to spook Alex (Laura Prepon), who thought she was sent to kill her. As it turned out Lolly was simply following the voices in her head — a paranoid schizophrenic, Lolly is convinced all government agencies are united in a conspiracy to kill her.

This season, Lolly saves Alex’s life by knocking out the prison guard who turned out to be an undercover assassin, helps Alex bury the body, and later bonds with Healy (Michael J. Harney), who convinces her that it was all in her head. Sadly, it wasn’t, and when the truth is revealed Healy is forced to escort Lolly to psychiatric »

Uzo Aduba on ‘Orange Is the New Black’ Season 4, the Big Death and Mental Health

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

[Spoiler alert: The following interview discusses major plot points from the final three episodes of “Orange Is the New Black” season 4. Do not read until you’ve finished the season.]

In many ways Uzo Aduba’s Suzanne “Crazy-Eyes” Warren has become the heart of Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black.” And in season four, that heart is shattered into pieces. The season’s final three episodes put Suzanne through one ordeal after another — whether it’s an unwelcome physical confrontation with her estranged girlfriend Maureen Kukudio (Emily Althaus), the breakdown during a peaceful protest that results in a chaotic scene and the death of friend and fellow inmate Poussey Washington (Samira Wiley), or the tragic backstory that finally explains what sent Suzanne to prison.

Variety spoke with two-time Emmy winner Uzo Aduba about filming these “intense” episodes back-to-back, working with “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner for the first time, how the show handles the serious issue of mental illness, and her memories of an intimate send-off dinner with Wiley and co-stars Taylor Schilling and Kate Mulgrew.

How did you find out about Poussey’s death in »

Orange Is The New Black Season 4 Review

16 June 2016 2:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Six episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

There are nearly infinite reasons why Orange Is The New Black has resonated so loudly with so many people in such a short span of time. Its honest characters, juicy drama, and unashamedly blunt depiction of what life in a prison is like (as a woman, a black woman, a Dominican woman, etc) are bound to constitute a few of those. Others might appreciate Jenji Kohan’s masterfully laid-back tone that – after four years – still ebbs and flows into mouth-covering shockers with ease – which makes sense, given the woman essentially created the bedrock of the unforgettable season finale in Weeds.

I like its simple insights. Suzanne, aka Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba), has slowly been getting more to do – and be – since her pie-throwing meme-ifying in season 1 and, as things go downhill for her in season 4, she reminisces about the speechless cues her parents »

Orange Is the New Black's Kate Mulgrew Teases "Edgy" Relationship for Red in Season 4

27 May 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Is love in the air on Orange Is the New Black? Last season saw Healy (Michael Harney) grow closer to Red (Kate Mulgrew) as she helped him with his wife. And while Red may have told them their ships passed too late, the relationships isn't going anywhere in season four. "I have some interesting things with Michael Harney," Mulgrew told us at the PaleyLive's Orange Is the New Black event. "I think that it is a deep friendship…it's an edgy kind of thing and for me to put too fine a point on it would be a mistake." And Healy isn't the only person Mulgrew's character will have some big moments with. Look for Red and Piper (Taylor Schilling) to have scenes, obviously, because they »

‘Orange Is the New Black’ Cast Looks Back on Season 3

27 May 2016 11:37 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Orange Is the New Black” stars Taylor Schilling, Natasha Lyonne, Kate Mulgrew, Taryn Manning and Michael Harney gathered at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills on Thursday to look back on last season before the upcoming season 4. Show creator and executive producer Jenji Kohan was set to attend, but wasn’t present at the event. The cast was, however, tight-lipped about the upcoming season.

“We never know what’s coming,” said Lyonne about Kohan’s writing.

It’s unclear whether Lyonne returns for this season, given her character’s early exit in the last season. Also to be determined is whether Piper continues with her “Felonius Spunk” business as a panty entrepeneur.

“I think that Piper took that dynamic and enjoyed it, so I think it continues on,” said Schilling.

I love it when letting go of all preconceptions and all ideas for the actor and for the »

'Orange Is the New Black' Cast Tease Season 4, 'Kingpin' Piper

27 May 2016 9:50 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Several key members of the "Orange Is the New Black" cast appeared at a panel discussion on Thursday to tease some (admittedly cryptic) details about the upcoming fourth season, and while we don't have any concrete answers about just what to expect from the new episodes, the actors dropped plenty of clues for eager fans.

Taylor Schilling, Natasha Lyonne, Kate Mulgrew, Taryn Manning, Selenis Leyva, and Michael Harney stopped by the Paley Center in Los Angeles on Thursday to talk about all things "Orange," though according to The Hollywood Reporter, the event featured more intel about behind-the-scenes action than anything else. Still, the cast did promise that there were big things in store at Litchfield this season, particularly when it comes to Schilling's Piper, who's still running her underground panty-selling operation when season four picks up.

"She's becoming a little bit of a kingpin and has this swagger," Schilling said of her onscreen alter ego. »

These Members of the Orange Is the New Black Cast Might Be the Last to Know What 'Netflix and Chill' Means

27 May 2016 7:35 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Netflix and what now? Though "Netflix and chill" meme seems to have permeated pop culture in 2016, there are still some people who have been in the dark as to what the term means - namely some of the stars of Netflix's own Orange Is the New Black. Cast members Taylor Schilling, Selenis Leyva, Kate Mulgrew, Natasha Lyonne, Taryn Manning and Michael Harney attended the PaleyLive La: An Evening with Orange Is the New Black event in Beverly Hills, California, on Thursday. And when they were asked by an audience member about the impact social media has had on the success of the show, »

Orange Is the New Black cast members Natasha Lyonne, Taylor Schilling, Taryn Manning, Selenis Leyva, Kate Mulgrew, and Michael Harney all arrived at an event to discuss the upcoming season of their Netflix hit at The Paley Center in La on Thursday, and they looked adorable as always. The SAG Award-winning cast are incredibly close in real life, and the love between them clearly showed as they put their arms around each other and giggled for photographers on the red carpet. Judging from how tense season four looks, this is probably the only chance you'll get to see Piper wrapping Red and Nicky in a big bear hug, so cherish it while you can. Check out more of their cute moments together below, then see pictures from the cast's fun vacation to Hawaii in January! »

In today's Berlinale Diary entry, I offer first impressions of Eugène Green's Le Fils de Joseph with Victor Ezenfis, Natacha Régnier, Fabrizio Rongione, Mathieu Amalric and Maria de Medeiros; Wang Bing's Ta'ang, a documentary on refugees crossing the border from Myanmar into China; Yang Chao's years-in-the-making Crosscurrent with Qin Hao, Xin Zhi Lei, Wu Lipeng, Wang Hongwei and Jiang Hualin; and Rafi Pitts's Soy Nero with Johnny Ortiz, Rory Cochrane, Aml Ameen, Darrell Britt-Gibson and Michael Harney. » - David Hudson »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Soy Nero’

16 February 2016 7:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At this stage, America’s war in the Middle East practically has its own dedicated cinematic subgenre, so all credit to Rafi Pitts’ confident, deceptively calm “Soy Nero” for finding in the conflict a surprisingly under-explored angle: the plight of foreign “Green Card soldiers” joining the U.S. Army in the hope of attaining citizenship. Following one such hapless recruit, played with vulnerable impassivity by Johnny Ortiz, as he negotiates the seemingly not-so-different border patrols of Mexico and an unspecified stretch of the Middle East, Pitts’ pristinely composed sixth feature is thoughtfully marked by the Iranian-born filmmaker’s own experience of amorphous national identity. Its ironies, however, are more heavily inscribed than we’ve come to expect from his work — or, indeed, that of his accomplished Romanian co-writer Razvan Radulescu. If that leaves the pic softer in impact at its end than its outset, its formal virtues are more consistently punchy. »

Bad Hurt movie review: family tied

11 February 2016 1:47 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Exhaustion of mind and body is the primary sentiment in this sensitively observed family drama, drawn with an intimacy that is palpable and uncompromising. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Shock: it’s when you hurt so bad you don’t feel anymore,” says Ed (Michael Harney: Ocean’s Thirteen). He’s ostensibly talking about physical, medical shock, but it’s debatable whether he and the rest of his hard-put-upon family are already past that point emotionally, or merely wishing for it. It’s Christmastime 1999 in New York’s remote borough, Staten Island… a metaphor, perhaps, for the social isolation of the Kendall family. Son Kent (Johnny Whitworth: Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance), a military veteran suffering from Ptsd and possibly Gulf War syndrome, is not able to take care of himself; neither is his sister, »

[Review] Bad Hurt

9 February 2016 10:28 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The kitchen sink’s thrown against the wall with bathtub, toilet, and whatever else made of easily-shattered porcelain in the house following right behind—this is Mark Kemble‘s Bad Hurt. Adapted from his semi-autobiographical play “Bad Hurt on Cedar Street” with the help of Jamieson Stern, the film depicts a dysfunctional family that drew the shortest of straws in terms of volatility and hardship. But with that burden comes the capacity for strength in love to somehow overcome. Doing so is difficult, enough that the attempt will prove futile time and time again, but it is possible. More suffering will arrive on the horizon as hard truths needing to be uncovered and accepted to approach calm appear and it’ll all destroy as surely as it’ll galvanize.

This is far from a simple story, but one quickly dismissed as contrived or melodramatic. While it’s both those things »
