Recently Flickering Myth had the privilege to speak with Person of Interest’s Kevin Chapman aka Detective Lionel Fusco. As I eagerly await the second season of Person of Interest, the sound of Lionel’s… Sorry Kevin’s voice on the other end of the phone line was a source of comfort that took me back to happier days, when each week was adorned with a new episode, in which Reese would shoot someone in the kneecap. Oh, happy days.
Kevin spoke to us about discovering acting late in life, working with Clint Eastwood and Sean Penn, the award winning television series Brotherhood, the lessons learned behind the camera as well as and of course talking Lionel Fusco and Person of Interest…

Title: Kilimanjaro Screened At: SXSW 2013 Directed By: Walter Strafford Starring: Brian Geraghty, Chris Marquette, Abigail Spencer, Alexia Rasmussen, Jim Gaffigan “Kilimanjaro” is very clearly labeled a romantic drama, but with a title like that, you expect at least a little suspense, even if it can only exist in the realm of relationship woes. However, Brian Geraghty’s Doug is just too meek, predictable and almost detached to spark much emotion from a viewer. Doug and Clare (Geraghty and Alexia Rasmussen) are the perfect couple. They share a nice apartment, each set of parents approves of the relationship, and they’re right on the cusp of taking that next big step – [ Read More ]

Not-so-shocking confession: The 2013 MTV Movie Award nominations were just announced, and I'm psyched about it. Sure, the ceremony has become overrun with Twihard vote-in victories, but that doesn't mean the ceremony is a total drag. In fact, I can think of five times the MTV Movie Awards restored my faith in award show culture and, subsequently, life itself. Here are the five greatest moments in MTV Movie Award history.
5. 1992: Best Movie -- Terminator 2: Judgment Day
Going all the way back to the first ceremony, MTV rained trophies on Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and with good reason: It's one of the most watchable action movies ever and features some of the most well-developed characters in the history of the genre.

Check out the trailer for Walter Strafford's comedy "Kilimanjaro," premiering at SXSW on March 9 in the fest's Narrative Spotlight section. The film centers on Doug (Brian Geraghty, "The Hurt Locker"), who decides to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in the wake of a bad breakup and his grandfather's declining health. Not-so-spoiler alert: Getting to the summit is more of an uphill battle than Doug bargained for. Alexia Rasmussen ("Our Idiot Brother"), Abigail Spencer ("Oz the Great and Powerful," "Mad Men") and Chris Marquette ("The Girl Next Door") also star. Here's the SXSW programming notes: For years, Doug Collins has been wading through a routine unsatisfying job and an increasingly miserable relationship. After his girlfriend moves out, Doug pushes himself to live a more fulfilling life starting with a trek to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Life pushes back. In the face of challenges from every direction, Doug struggles to make his way to the mountaintop. »

Vidhu Vinod Chopra who is busy with his maiden Hollywood venture Broken Horses with Vincent D'Onofrio seems to be going to great lengths to ensure the film's success. In fact now we hear that Vvc has roped in Hollywood editor par excellence Todd E. Miller to work on the gangster film. Having shot the film in Us earlier this year, Vidhu has now roped in Miller, who has worked on films like The Expendables 2 and Transformers, to handle the editing of his film as well. Apart from this, reports also have it that Todd has moved base from Us to Mumbai to edit the film. Broken Horses which features Vincent D'Onofrio (Men In Black) along with Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) and Chris Marquette (Alpha Dog), is an epic thriller about the bonds of brotherhood, the laws of loyalty and the futility of violence. »
