The People v Oj Simpson: episode one – great casting, with one exception

5 February 2016 8:21 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The FX series based on the trial that gripped the world is off to a flying start – but does it matter that Cuba Gooding Jr looks and sounds nothing like Oj Simpson?

Part of the trick of doing a fact-based movie, TV show or miniseries is casting. Hire the wrong actors – be they too short, too tall, not attractive enough, too attractive or just incapable of acting – and it will invariably sink your production. Would Steve Jobs have been slightly better if they cast someone who looked even remotely like Steve Jobs? Probably. Then again, we knew what Steve Jobs looked like. We saw his face a lot; maybe too much. Every six months, there he was, hocking some new light-up brick gadget that promised to change the way we exist (until the next device arrives to further advance the human species to the point where we’re just pure »

Dennis O’Neil: Hawkman Is A Know-It-All!

4 February 2016 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

We’re now into the run of television’s latest superhero saga, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and while we’ve been treated to both Hawkman and his mate, who are among the stars of the show, we haven’t yet seen Hawkman’s omcromicon. Do we breathe a sigh of relief or add another bitter complaint to the list?

Or do we scratch our heads and ask what the dickens an… wha’d I call it? – an omcromicon is?

Let’s do that. But first, a confession: I’m on shaky ground here because I’m not sure that I’m spelling “omcromicon” correctly and a very hasty pass through the web got me zilch. Plenty of stuff on Hawkman and Hawkgirl (a.k.a. Hawkwoman) – more than I expected – and a goodly number of mentions of what was once the Hawks’ favored weapons, antique harmbringers like maces and such. »

Behind the Scenes: Bradley Rubenstein

3 February 2016 7:12 AM, PST | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

This is the fourth of a series of interviews that focus on Local 829's Scenic Artists’ "behind the scenes" talent who sculpt and paint in a variety of ways the sets we see on television, in movies and documentaries, on theater stages, and in the backgrounds of television and internet commercials.

I first met Bradley Rubenstein very early on in my days in the scenic arts, and it was immediately apparent that he was, and still is, respectfully dedicated to his work as a fine artist. I’ve followed his career closely since then, watching his art delving deeper and deeper into the human condition as he distorts and mutates his subjects. Recently, Rubenstein had one of his warped and mangled human forms in an exhibition titled Head that I curated for the Hampden Gallery at Umass Amherst.

The interview below begins just days before the installation of Head. The »

Screen Actors Guild awards set to further expose Oscars' lack of diversity

29 January 2016 6:10 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

As the Academy continues to confront criticism, success at the Sags on Saturday for stars such as Viola Davis, Queen Latifah and Idris Elba seems likely to further highlight how far film lags behind TV

As the #OscarsSoWhite diversity crisis continues to engulf Hollywood, the annual round of awards ceremonies are under inspection as never before. On Saturday, the Screen Actors Guild – the performers’ trade union – will give out its honours in a ceremony that has traditionally been seen as a strong indication of where the Oscars will go. But with the film industry in a hypersensitive state – particularly with regard to black and minority-ethnic performers – the mood is more febrile than it has been since the dramatic protests of the 1970s.

The Academy Breaks Silence on Straight Outta Compton Oscar Tickets Controversy: We Don't Do The Inviting!

28 January 2016 9:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The Academy has broken its silence over a report that the cast of Straight Outta Compton were not invited to this year's ceremony, which fueled further uproar over the #OscarsSoWhite controversy. "The Academy invites the nominees only, and each studio gets a limited ticket allotment, based on the number of nominated films, to use at their discretion. It has been this way for decades," an Academy spokesperson tells People exclusively. While the number of tickets a studio gets is dependent on how many nominees they have in a given year, Academy members themselves have to enter a lottery to score them. »

Alex Gibney and Kahane Cooperman on What 'The New Yorker Presents' Actually Is, Other than a Great New Amazon Series

28 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In one year, Alex Gibney directed three documentaries; one on the legendary singer and actor Frank Sinatra, another on Apple co-founder and industry icon Steve Jobs, and also a little HBO doc you may have heard of titled "Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief." To say he's a busy man is an understatement, as would saying he's a game-changing documentarian.  Yet the latter adjective is fitting for the savvy helmer's next project: a docu-series (that's not a docu-series) set to premiere on Amazon (via a release strategy that's a first for the company) and co-produced by Kahane Cooperman (from "The Daily Show"). But these two are far from the only creative minds behind "The New Yorker Presents," their new half-hour series set to debut weekly for Amazon Prime subscribers. In fact, they're more like the curators than the creators, as they have a hand in constructing the episodes »

The Sweet Reason Why Hugh Jackman Made Sure His Children Saw Eddie the Eagle

27 January 2016 3:55 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Hugh Jackman thinks there's an important reason why kids should see his new movie. Inspired by a true story, Eddie the Eagle, which debuted at a secret screening at the Sundance Film Festival Tuesday night, is an uplifting underdog movie about Michael "Eddie" Edwards (Taron Egerton), an amateur ski-jumper who represented Great Britain at the 1988 Calgary Olympic Games. Although Edwards came in last place, he became world-renowned for his daring effort. Jackman, 47, plays Eddie's coach, Bronson Peary, a character created for the movie.

Sundance: 'Embrace Of The Serpent' wins Sloan prize

27 January 2016 1:44 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

An extraordinary year for the Colombian Oscar nominee continued as Ciro Guerra’s drama was announced on Wednesday as winner of the 2016 Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize.

A jury comprising former winners Mike Cahill and Shane Carruth, Kerry Bishé from Catch And Release, science professor Clifford Johnson, and Harvard director of space genetics Ting Wu awarded the $20,000 cash award.

They cited the film for its “original and provocative portrait of a scientist and a scientific journey into the unknown, and for its unconventional depiction of how different cultures seek to understand nature.”

For the first time the Institute said it will add a Fellowship for a writer with an early-stage episodic project to support its development for television.

Writer-director Mark Levinson has been awarded the $15,000 Sundance Institute / Sloan Fellowship for The Gold Bug Variations, while co-writers Darcy Brislin and Dyana Winkler (Bell) each receive $12,500 Sundance Institute / Sloan Commissioning Grants.

Happy 40th Birthday, ‘Laverne & Shirley’!

27 January 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

40 years ago today, Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams schlemiel-schlamazeled their way into TV history when “Laverne & Shirley” premiered on ABC. Laverne DeFazio and Shirley Feeney, two roommates who worked as bottle-cappers in Milwaukee, had made their debut on “Happy Days” the November before their own spin-off started airing on January 27, 1976. The zany antics of “Laverne & Shirley” quickly shot to No. 1 in the ratings, even surpassing the viewership of “Happy Days.” Williams departed the show after she became pregnant with her first child. As to why she left instead of scheduling around the birth of her baby, Williams has said, “When it came time for me to sign my contract for that season, they had me working on my due date to have my baby. And I said, ‘You know, I can't sign this.’ And it went back and forth and back and forth and it just never got worked out. »
