Veep’s Tony Hale on Going on Auditions, Arrested Development, and What’s in Gary’s Bag

12 April 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Tony Hale plays the fumbling, fiercely loyal personal assistant to now-President Selina Meyer on HBO’s Veep. This season, the stakes are higher than ever for Hale’s character, Gary, as his boss moves into the White House, and exhibits less patience with her underlings. Ahead of Sunday night's premiere, Hale spoke with John Horn of Southern California Public Radio's arts and entertainment show “The Frame” about how his role on Veep compares to his Buster on Arrested Development, why he loves going on auditions, and what’s in Gary’s bag. (Listen to part of this interview below, and subscribe to “The Frame” at iTunes or Stitcher.)I wonder if, in your mind, you’re probably best known for two parts, one on Arrested Development and one on Veep, are these characters related in some deeper way? Are they cousins? No, it seems that way. Um, they definitely have common neuroses. »

29 March 2015 9:58 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Alex Gibney’s two-hour-long exploration of Scientology, Going Clear, premieres tonight on HBO. Based on Lawrence Wright's book by the same name, Gibney’s speaks with former leaders and defectors of the Church for the documentary, which gives the unacquainted a primer on the organization and its creator, L. Ron Hubbard, and chronicles its alleged abuses against its members. Gibney spoke with John Horn of Southern California Public Radio's arts and entertainment show “The Frame” about where he found footage of Scientology rallies, protecting his material from meddlers, and why more people need to speak out against the Church. (Listen to part of this interview below, and subscribe to “The Frame” at iTunes or Stitcher.)I want to ask about the archival footage that you found. There’s a lot of footage of David Miscavige at what looked to be—I think, to a lay person—they looked like a sales meeting at Herbalife. »

Last Man on Earth’s Phil Lord and Chris Miller on Working With Will Forte and Making a Cable Show for a Major Network

6 March 2015 5:25 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The influence of executive producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller on Last Man on Earth is instantly apparent, as you realize the name of Will Forte's character, Phil Miller, is a composite of their names. But it goes beyond that: Last Man on Earth has the signature mix of high-concept and heart they brought to projects like The Lego Movie, 21 and 22 Jump Street, and Clone High. Also, like many of their projects, it seems like it could've potentially been a terrible idea. But as fawning critics and early viewers (the show premiered to much bigger numbers than expected) can attest, they did it again. To figure out exactly how, John Horn, host of Southern California Public Radio's new arts and entertainment show “The Frame,” spoke to the duo about making an apocalypse funny, working with Fox, and the dynamic of their partnership.

Conan O’Brien on Going to Cuba and the State of Late-Night TV

4 March 2015 9:54 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Late-night TV is a numbers game. It's not about specific moments as much as an overall impression. No one knows that better than Conan O'Brien, who has been a late-night host for over two decades. So, how does he stay relevant in a crowded field as he approaches his 22nd year? Cuba! Tonight, O'Brien will air a special episode of his show that will put him as the first late-night host to be there in 50 years. Earlier this week, O'Brien spoke with John Horn, host of Southern California Public Radio's new arts and entertainment show “The Frame,” about the special, doing comedy in a foreign country, and the ever-changing late-night terrain. (Listen to part of Horn and O'Brien's interview here, and subscribe to “The Frame” at iTunes or Stitcher.)Conan, welcome back from Cuba. Thank you very much, it’s good to be back. So just in terms of the landscape, »

Sundance: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s Very Personal Film Me & Earl & the Dying Girl

31 January 2015 3:13 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

There are more dying-teen love stories on the horizon. One of the most admired films to premiere at Sundance is Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's Me & Earl & the Dying Girl, adapted from a young-adult novel of the same name. The film stars Thomas Mann as a witty, creative, but isolated high-school senior named Greg, who is forced to visit his classmate Rachel (Olivia Cooke), who has just been diagnosed with leukemia. Needless to say, Greg and Rachel don’t just hang out that one time. From standing ovations to audiences sobbing in unison, director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s highly personal film is generating highly personal responses. Gomez-Rejon spoke with John Horn, host of Southern California Public Radio's new arts and entertainment show, "The Frame," about the highly personal nature of the film, sparking a bidding war, and rushing to complete the film just hours before Sundance started.

Alex Gibney on Going Clear, His Scientology Documentary That’s the Talk of Sundance

30 January 2015 7:47 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Debuting to a packed house at Sundance this week, Alex Gibney's upcoming HBO documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief received a standing ovation. Vulture's Bilge Ebiri called it "jaw-dropping" and wrote, "Any way you cut it, this is still spectacular stuff." Gibney spoke with John Horn, host of Southern California Public Radio's new arts and entertainment show “The Frame,” about turning Lawrence Wright's book into a documentary, new details he unearthed about Scientology, and the opposition he's faced from the Church. (Listen to Horn and Gibney's interview here, and subscribe to “The Frame” at iTunes or Stitcher.)Before the movie premiered, the Church was already going on the offensive publicly by taking out full-page newspaper ads condemning the film and its accuracy. What was your reaction to those ads?Great publicity. You can’t buy that, but they could, and we were the beneficiaries.  Do »

Neil Young on His New Digital Music Player and Why MP3s Are Subpar

16 January 2015 2:47 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Neil Young wants to change the way you listen to music. This week, the rock legend introduced Pono, a new high-definition digital music player that he says will finally offer consumers the sound quality he hears in his studio. (The device, which Young is selling for $399, was funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign; some audioheads are dubious about his claims.) Young spoke with John Horn, host of Southern California Public Radio's new arts and entertainment show “The Frame,” about audio quality, taking on Apple, and whether MP3s have made musicians complacent. (Listen to part of Horn and Young's interview below, and subscribe to “The Frame” at iTunes or Stitcher.) What was going on in your musical or professional life that made you want to create Pono. Just satisfaction with what my product was sounding like by the time it got to consumers. Now, it has sounded like this for »

12 January 2015 11:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When she was asked to serve as showrunner for a new HBO show about four young women in New York City, Jenni Konner likely did not expect that the show would one day serve as the core of a Sunday-night block. Yet here we here — Girls has just entered its fourth season, and it is anchoring a night of half-hour dramedies, including Looking and the new Duplass Brothers show Togetherness. Late last night, Konner spoke with John Horn, host of Southern California Public Radio's new arts and entertainment show, “The Frame,” about the new season and how she responds to critics of the show. (Listen to part of Horn and Konner's interview below, and subscribe to “The Frame” at iTunes or Stitcher.)I want to take you back a little bit in time to the original pitch for this show. Is that original pitch what the show has become?Well, »
