Exclusive: James Tupper on Mastering Mystery With Hallmark and 'Big Little Lies'

25 May 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

James Tupper's got a knack for mystery.

The 51-year-old actor, who gained notoriety on medical dramas like Mercy and Grey's Anatomy, seems to have hit his stride in the mystery genre with roles in Revenge and Big Little Lies.

Watch: James Tupper's Two Week Rule

Most recently, however, Tupper has transitioned from covering up crimes to solving them, with his latest role as an FBI agent working with an archaeologist (Courtney Thorne-Smith) to solve a murder in Hallmark Movies & Mysteries' Site Unseen: An Emma Fielding Mystery.

"I think Hallmark is doing this really exciting thing right now, where they buy a series of books, they're books for young adults, or adolescents, and they're really fun Agatha Christie-style mysteries," the Canadian actor excitedly told Et over the phone earlier this month. "I actually signed on for three of them."

Though Site Unseen has yet to premiere, Tupper said he hopes to work on the next »

The 9 Biggest Differences Between the Big Little Lies Novel and TV Show

4 April 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

When news broke that HBO was taking the reins in adapting Liane Moriarty's beloved mystery novel Big Little Lies, many wondered how the resulting miniseries might turn out - would the casting be on point? Would it still take place in Australia? Would the story still end with a shocking, twisted death? After watching nearly the entire season, we can confirm that the show is not only exceptionally entertaining but also mostly faithful to the book. There are some key differences, though, which range from fairly minor to pretty major. 1. It's no longer set in Australia. Perhaps the biggest difference is that Big Little Lies has been uprooted from the small, coastal Australian town of Pirriwee to posh Monterey, CA, though the core story is still the same: Jane Chapman (Shailene Woodley) moves there with her son, Ziggy, from Santa Cruz to start a new life. Monterey is also a seaside town, »

Big Little Lies: Here's Who Really Sang Adam Scott's Elvis Cover

3 April 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Before we found out who the victim is on Big Little Lies, we found out that Ed is a seriously talented singer. The finale aired on Sunday night and included several performances by Elvis-impersonating parents. The covers are a great addition to the already-packed soundtrack, but while Zoë Kravitz really sang her part, Adam Scott had a vocal stand-in. During an interview with Conan O'Brien, Scott admitted that he took singing lessons for weeks, but in the end, his voice just wasn't strong enough for the number. The director, Jean-Marc Vallée, spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about his choice to bring in a ringer, saying that both Scott and James Tupper, who plays Nathan, "have the worst voices ever." Harsh! "I wanted this to be emotional and beautiful so I asked Conor O'Brien, the lead singer of the Irish band the Villagers, to be Adam Scott's voice," Vallée said. »

‘Big Little Lies’ vs. the Book: How the Series’ Changes Strengthened the Mystery and the Bonds of Sisterhood

3 April 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from the season finale of “Big Little Lies.”]

During the finale of HBO’s “Big Little Lies” on Sunday night, the series stayed true to its source material and kept the revelation of its three mysteries the same: abusive spouse Perry (Alexander Skarsgaard) was the victim; Bonnie (Zoe Kravitz) was the killer who had given him the fatal shove down a flight of stairs; and Celeste (Nicole Kidman) and Perry’s son Max was revealed to be the first grade bully.

While the series made some cosmetic changes, such as shifting the setting from Australia to Monterey, California, the most significant changes affected the story in two ways. The alterations either deepened the mystery on the show by casting more doubt on the situation, or it helped to create a more powerful statement regarding the innate strength of women and the bonds they need to forge to survive.

‘Big Little Lies’ Finale: Director Jean-Marc Vallée on the Long-Awaited Answer to the Mystery

2 April 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched the finale of “Big Little Lies,” which aired April 2.

The mystery is finally solved: Not only do we know who did it, we also know who the victim is, too. And we know who the father is of Jane’s son, Ziggy — the man who assaulted her that horrible night seven years ago. And thanks to director Jean-Marc Vallee’s visual storytelling style, it was all delivered without a single word spoken.

It was justice a long time coming for Celeste’s abusive husband, Perry (Alexander Skarsgård) who suffered a fatal fall at the hands of Bonnie (Zoë Kravitz). The women bonded together to keep the secret, refusing to tell the authorities the truth — but they’re each finally unburdened of the painful, deep secrets they’ve been keeping all series long.

‘Big Little Lies’ Finale Review: Now That’s How You End a Murder Mystery

2 April 2017 6:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Big Little Lies” Episode 7, “You Get What You Need.”]

The “Big Little Lies” finale can be neatly broken up into two parts: brutally teasing motivations for murder and letting suspects off the hook. Much of the tightly wound episode’s opening was spent playfully foreshadowing events to come, as fights were picked (Madeline and Joseph, Gordon and Tom) and suggestive lines were delivered. (A favorite: Celeste’s therapist saying, “It’s one thing he could kill you, but god forbid you miss a party.”)

Well, joke’s on you, therapist lady: Perry’s the one who got got! While director Jean-Marc Vallée and writer David E. Kelley waited until the final minutes to reveal who died and who did it, “You Get What You Need” gave us exactly what we needed to figure things out as the night’s events unfolded. Each character was given a moment of absolute guilt or absolute innocence, so that we were well-prepared for the dramatic unveiling. »

Big Little Lies Leaves Us With No Answers But a Lot of Intrigue Ahead of the Finale

26 March 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Well, we were right to suspect Abigail of being up to something irritating. We just could not have possibly guessed what that something was. Turns out, she's trying to sell her virginity online, with the proceeds going to Amnesty International. Most things on this show were already f—ked up, but tonight got ridiculous in so many amazing and eventually (and strangely) positive ways. Abby's insanity was only part of that ridiculousness.  Bonnie (Zoe Kravitz) was the first to find out about Abigail's (Kathryn Newton) quest to use her own body to bring awareness to sex trafficking, and she was obviously very calm about it, as is the Bonnie way. But then she told Nathan (James Tupper), and »

'Big Little Lies' Star James Tupper on the "Crazy Climax Ahead"

5 March 2017 7:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the third episode of HBO's Big Littles Lies, "Living the Dream."]

The list of enemies for Reese Witherspoon's Madeline on HBO's Big Little Lies continues to grow. And for now, at least, the motor-mouth meddling mother doesn't seem to care. 

During Sunday's hour, Renata (Laura Dern) tells Madeline that she's "dead in this town" as tensions between the duo continue to rise. And while that doesn't seem to phase Madeline, the fact that her daughter, Abigail, is moving in with her ex-husband Nathan (James Tupper) surely puts her over the edge. It prompts Madeline's first breakdown, »
