If I had an Emmy ballot 2015: Who should be nominated?

29 June 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Voting closed for Emmy nominations on Friday. Ordinarily, I would have already completed my usual If I Had An Emmy Ballot exercise by now, but various other projects got in the way, which means what I'm about to post is even more hypothetical than usual, since it's after the voting deadline. As always, I'm working with the choices listed on the actual Emmy ballots, which means I have to go along with where various shows and actors were categorized and submitted. So I have to consider "Orange Is the New Black" a drama, have to consider Key and Peele supporting actors on their own show, and can't go off the ballot to try nominating an actor like Max Greenfield from "New Girl," who didn't even put his name up for submission. Also, while I've done these as a bunch of separate posts the last few years, this thing's already so »

Consider This: Clive Owen on 'The Knick' Season 2: 'It Gets Even Wilder'

22 June 2015 10:39 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When news first broke about "The Knick" coming to Cinemax, all anyone could talk about was Steven Soderbergh's involvement in the new TV series. The Academy Award-winning director was coming out of his semi-retirement for a period medical drama -- why? We all got our answer last August when "The Knick" premiered to rave reviews, and we also discovered a whole new reason to admire Soderbergh's latest beauty: Clive Owen — who's not too hard on the eyes, either. Owen's portrayal of Dr. John Thackery was immediately gripping, steadily evolving and, in the end, like nothing the Oscar nominee has done before. Playing a drug-addicted doctor with a proclivity for experimental procedures is quite the juicy role as is, and Owen bit into it with relish. His carefully balanced capturing of a man who lives on the edge of everything never felt too large for the small screen, even if »

‘The Knick’s Clive Owen On Dr. Thackery & Season Two: “We Left Him In A Pretty Desperate State”

20 June 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

From its opening bloody scene in a 1900-era hospital operating theater, to the drug-addled end of season one, The Knick spared no one—much like the expansive and industrial era in American history that it depicts. At the blackened heart of the Steven Soderbergh-directed series stands Clive Owen as the crazed and brilliant Dr. John Thackery. Taking over as the head of New York City's Knickerbocker Hospital surgery staff following the suicide of his mentor, Thackery sought… »

100 Essential Action Scenes: Attacks!

11 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.

If you’ve seen a film montage in the last 10 years, then you’ve been witness to at least one of the scenes mentioned on this list: the vibrating water glass from Jurassic Park signaling the T-Rex prowling nearby. It’s the perfect type of image to tell the audience: something is coming. These flashes of exhilaration are fan-favorites, and it’s no surprise to see them featured prominently as the centerpieces for some of the greatest films ever. It’s the invasion when the aliens come out of the sky, the »

'The Knick' Star Clive Owen Reveals How One Phone Call Changed His Mind About Doing a TV Series

9 June 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Clive Owen wasn't looking to star in a TV show, but one phone call changed his mind. "I wasn’t looking at all to sort of do television," confessed Owen during The Hollywood Reporter’s TV Drama Actor Roundtable. "Steven Soderbergh called me up. He’d read this one script, and he said, 'I think I want to turn it into a 10-hour TV show. Let me know what you think.’ Fifty minutes later, there was no way I would not be doing it." He discussed his reservations in going back to television after doing a lot TV work when he

Actors on Actors: Hollywood’s A-List Finds Meaty Roles on Television

9 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Josh Gad has taken Broadway by storm in “The Book of Mormon,” headlined the hit film “The Wedding Ringer” and voiced one of the most beloved animated characters of all time as Olaf the snowman in “Frozen.” So what prompted him to accept the role opposite Billy Crystal in the FX comedy “The Comedians?”

“The paycheck, obviously,” he dead-panned.

Attending Variety’s first Actors on Actors Emmy Studio, Gad said, “It really is the Golden Age of TV right now, especially on cable.”

That theme would be echoed again and again by all the A-list talent who visited our studio over the course over a weekend in March, including two-time Academy Award winners Jessica Lange (FX’s “American Horror Story”) and Jane Fonda, who’s tackling her first gig as a TV regular in Netflix’s “Grace and Frankie.” As we paired up TV’s top stars for conversations about »

Julianna Margulies, Clive Owen on Their Big Breaks (Video)

9 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The following story is part of Variety’s Actors on Actors Emmy Studio. For more videos, click here.

Julianna Margulies: What was the role that you feel suddenly changed your career?

Clive Owen: I landed a TV show when I was very young. I’m probably awful in it. It was called “Chancer,” which was very big at the time. And I remember it kind of rocked me. Coming from nowhere and being on this TV show with posters everywhere. And then, I did this tiny film “Croupier.”

Margulies: I saw it. Loved it.

Billy Kidd for Variety

Owen: It didn’t really get properly released in the U.K. But somebody in America loved it and championed it, and got it released, and it became a small indie. And it changed my career. It opened the door.

Margulies: Isn’t that amazing? Just one person. It just took one person to say, »

100 Essential Action Scenes: Battles & Combat

9 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.

Whether storming a beach or a besieging castle, marching on foot or charging on horseback, in a historical epic or a fantasy extravaganza, battles scenes are some of the most complex and intricately choreographed of all action scenes. Capable of zooming in to a one-on-one fight between two foes or zooming out to show a big picture look at the action–and featuring anywhere from dozens to hundreds to thousands of extras, either flesh and blood or digital–these are the scenes in which wars are fought, tides are turned, and glory is won. »

Andre Holland on character's 'furnace of rage' on 'The Knick' (Exclusive Video)'

8 June 2015 2:14 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

“He knows what he wants and he has a wonderful way of not making things any more complicated than they need to be,” says “The Knick” actor André Holland about Steven Soderbergh, who directs every episode -- a rarity in American television -- of the 1900-set hospital drama on Cinemax. “You have to come prepared (a hundred percent prepared) because sometimes, you may only do one or two takes of a scene,” Holland explains in our recent webcam interview (watch below), adding, “He may combine two or three scenes together to make it one long shot.” -Break- Juliet Rylance on her surprisingly "reckless" character in "The Knick" Holland plays Dr. Algernon Edwards, who joins the eponymous Knickerbocker Hospital as its first black surgeon under Clive Owen’s Dr. John Thackery in the pilot, which aired last August.

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Third Harry Potter Movie a Major Letdown. Is CGI Enough to Create On-Screen Magic?

6 June 2015 7:20 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban' poster. With Daniel Radcliffe. Rupert Grint. Emma Watson. 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban' quiz question: Does state-of-the-art CGI equal movie magic? (Oscar Movie Series) Alfonso Cuarón seems like an odd choice for director of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the third installment in the Harry Potter movie series. That is, if one thinks only of Cuarón's pre-Harry Potter sleeper hit, the François Truffaut-esque Y tu mamá también, while ignoring two of his earlier efforts, the critically acclaimed A Little Princess and the moderately respected Great Expectations. This time around, working with a reported $130 million budget (approx. $163 million in 2015), state-of-the-art special effects, and the Harry Potter franchise, Cuarón surely could do no wrong. At the box office, that is. For although Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is stylistically superior to Chris Columbus' previous work in the series, »

Cliff Martinez' warning: 'The Knick' season 2 will be 'darker,' but how?

5 June 2015 12:13 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cliff Martinez is hard at work on the score for "The Knick" season 2 for Steven Soderbergh, is mulling music for Nicolas Winding-Refn's "The Neon Demon" and has at least seen the script for Harmony Korine's next "The Trap," which is perhaps his next firm gig. Those names have been, erm, instrumental to Martinez' rise as an in-demand composer (though for some reason he just can't seem to hold down those outside, one-off commercial projects, dang it). Weaving organic, odd instruments in with electronic sources, the musician/writer has found natural creative companions in equally odd, forward-thinking and intuitive directors. Martinez has been in these pages before, after massaging a cold, macabre and grand score out of bloodlusty "Only God Forgives." His electronic soundtrack for Cinemax period drama "The Knick" is so gorgeous, the tracks stand boldly on their own. Below is an abridged version of my interview with Martinez, »

Justin Theroux Says ''I'm Not a Very Bright Man'' (But We Bet Jennifer Aniston Disagrees)

4 June 2015 4:34 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Justin Theroux is certainly a humble man. The actor participated in The Hollywood Reporter's latest roundtable involving a range of eclectic actors—including Timothy Hutton, Clive Owen, Jon Voight, Bob Odenkirk and David Oyelowo—and spoke candidly about what he thinks his strengths and weaknesses are. Jennifer Aniston's leading man was asked what he would probably be doing if he stopped acting today, and his response is nothing short of modesty at its finest. "[I'd] probably keep writing. I'm not good at other things. I'm not a very bright man." Oh, J.T. We bet Aniston and many others would beg to differ. Theroux also waxed poetic about the »

I sit down with Anonymous Content veteran manager Michael Sugar, who handles the careers of Joe Wright, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Winona Ryder, Richard Linklater, Marc Webb, Gavin Hood, Patty Jenkins, Scott BurnsCary Fukunaga and Steven Soderbergh, among others. HBO's 2014 drama series "True Detective," entirely directed by Fukunaga, won three Emmys including director, and now has a second season coming up with new directors and a new cast. And Soderbergh not only directed the 2013 Liberace movie "Behind the Candelabra" for HBO (which won 11 Emmys) but directed the elegant 2014 Cinemax series "The Knick," starring Clive Owen as a forward-thinking surgeon in 1900 trying to save lives under primitive conditions at New York's Knickerbocker Hospital. Both series follow innovative new models for director-driven television. Soderbergh will also direct all of "The Knick" Season Two, which returns with Owen in fall 2015. Also coming up...

Juliet Rylance on her surprisingly 'reckless' character in 'The Knick' [Exclusive Video]

23 May 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"She’s definitely heart-before-head and just dives into things almost without thinking," actress Juliet Rylance says during a recent webcam chat with Gold Derby (watch below) about her character Cornelia Robertson on the "The Knick." Rylance stars opposite Clive Owen on the hospital drama, which aired its first season last fall on Cinemax. Related video: Clive Owen on his 'dangerous and edgy' medical drama 'The Knick' Despite the show’s 1900 setting, Rylance plays a character with liberal views on race, abortion and women in the workplace. "I feel like a lot of the issues that Cornelia faces, bizarrely, are still relevant today," Rylance laments, which makes Cornelia not so different from more modern roles on the actress’ résumé. "She has to be very buttoned up. There is social etiquette of what’s expected from her and, obviously, she has to behave in a certain way, but there’..." »

The 10 new versions of Robin Hood in development

8 May 2015 8:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Film, TV and games companies have big plans for legendary tights-wearer Robin Hood. Here’s our primer on all the new versions…

Note: we've taken images from old Robin Hood projects because these new films and things, um, don't exist yet. Maximum geek points to whoever can remember what they're all from.

You don’t need us to remind you, but these days Hollywood and TV executives seem to have one target in mind – big franchises, hopefully with spin-offs and tie-ins galore across all possible forms of media.

An interesting consequence of all this is that the entertainment industry has begun looking beyond capes and cowls in their ‘what can we make a franchise out of?’ discussions. ‘What about other sorts of legendary characters?’ you can imagine them asking, before a big eureka moment… ‘What about Robin bloody Hood?!’

Almost simultaneously, it seems like every studio in Hollywood has latched »
