Three Guest Actors Join J.K. Simmons in Starz Spy Thriller ‘Counterpart’

9 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Starz announced on Thursday that three actors have been added to the cast of “Counterpart” in recurring guest roles.

Stephen Rea, Richard Schiff and Sarah Bolger will join J.K. Simmons in the espionage, sci-fi thriller about a man named Howard Silk (Simmons) who discovers that the agency he works for is hiding a secret — a crossing to a parallel dimension.

Schiff will play Director of Diplomacy Roland Fancher, a litigator and power negotiator between both dimensions. Fancher is responsible for negotiating the exchange of prisoners between worlds.

Rea will play Alexander Pope, an old-world Englishman. He pulls strings from behind the scenes and knows where all the bodies are buried — sometimes literally. Bolger plays Anna, a mysterious young woman whose appearance threatens Silk.

Counterpart” is created and written by Justin Marks. Executive producers are Morten Tyldum and Marks with Amy Berg, Gary Gilbert with Gilbert Films, Jordan Horowitz, Keith Redmon and Bard Dorros with Anonymous Content. Simmons »

How the awards season has evolved

11 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Time for something a bit fun and potentially a little bit embarrassing for me. What could it be? Well, looking back on how the season has evolved by checking my initial Oscar predictions for this year, of course! In past years, this has been occasionally cringe inducing, while sometimes it’s actually been a point of pride. This year, spoiler alert, it’s somewhere in between, which is probably where it should be. That’s the nature of the beast though, as it’s impossible to know what will play during an upcoming precursor season. You basically just either back an obvious prestige picture or try and pick out one of the promising things at the Sundance Film Festival. I mixed and matched this past time, to mostly solid effect. Below you will see my first set of Academy Award predictions, which you can compare to my most recent ones. »

Oscars: VFX Contenders Put On a Show at Academy’s Annual Bake-Off

13 January 2017 9:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ annual visual effects bake-off sees each of the 10 final contenders for the Oscar present a five-minute introduction and a 10-minute reel. For the first time ever this year, the artists behind each entry answered questions in a panel-style Q&A.

At the close of the evening, though, visual effects legend Bill Taylor closed things out with a speech urging fellow members to vote for the “best visual effects in a movie, not the best movie with visual effects.” With internal criticism of last year’s “Ex-Machina” victory still on many members’ minds, his comments struck some as a “warning,” and others as unnecessary and inaccurate.

A24’s surprise winner took down four big studio and major effects house contenders at the 88th annual Oscars: “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “The Martian,” “The Revenant” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” This year, the »

Amazon has found a director for the opening episode of its straight-to-drama series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan in Morten Tyldum, the Oscar-nominated helmer of The Imitation Game.

The 10-episode series will see John Krasinski taking on the role of Ryan, who will be portrayed as an up-and-coming CIA analyst thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time and “follows Ryan as he uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the center of a dangerous gambit with a new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale.”

In addition to Krasinski, the series stars Abbie Cornish as love interest Cathy Mueller. Dan Sackheim (The Americans) will serve as series producer, while Carlton Cuse, Graham Roland, Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Marcy Ross and Mace Neufeld executive produce.

This past Christmas, you might have seen Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt look glamorous in space in the sci-fi romance/action adventure Passengers. Apparently whatever Amazon, Platinum Dunes, Skydance Media and Paramount Television saw from director Morten Tyldum in that picture was enough to hire him for a new gig.

Passengers Director To Helm Amazon’s Jack Ryan Pilot

6 January 2017 12:33 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Morten Tyldum has seen better days. The Oscar-nominated director behind The Imitation Game and Headhunters found himself receiving some of the worst reviews of his career with Passengers, and the box office take for the expensive blockbuster hasn’t looked much better. Some thought it might put the Norweigan filmmaker in director’s jail, in fact, but that doesn’t seem to be the case, as he’s now set to helm the pilot for Amazon’s newest dramatic series, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan.

Reinventing the popular literary figure once played by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and, most recently, Chris Pine, John Krasinski embodies the titular hero in his first television portrayal. In this iteration, Ryan’s an up-and-coming CIA analyst thrust into his first dangerous field assignment. Abbie Cornish co-stars as his love interest, Cathy Mueller.

As of now, Tyldum is only set to direct the pilot, »

Hollywood’s Winners and Losers 2016: Why Movie Stars Flailed Next to Strong Women, African Americans, and Animated Heroes

2 January 2017 10:03 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As a year, 2016 is an auld acquaintance that we’d rather be forgot. However, as another familiar trope reminds us, those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. Here’s my assessment of the year Hollywood coped with change as the industry’s economic underpinnings continued to buckle and sway.

And for the Tl;Dr among us: Those who are able to innovate and adapt thrive. Others face decline.

Winners

Disney is the studio winner by a mile not only in domestic market share ($2.7 billion, 25.3 percent), but its stable of global moneymakers took the studio to more than $7 billion worldwide. Four of the five most profitable movies of the year came from Disney: “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” (Lucasfilm), “Captain America: Winter Soldier” (Marvel), “Zootopia” (Disney Animation), and “The Jungle Book” (Disney). And blockbusters “Finding Dory” (Pixar), “Moana” (Disney Animation), and “Doctor Strange” (Marvel) weren’t far behind. »

Box Office 2017 Opens With ‘Sing’ Making a Run at ‘Rogue One’

1 January 2017 3:06 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The year closed with a very uneven holiday period.”Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and “Sing” were the standouts, contributing most of the $160 million that comprises the Top 10 total. (“Sing” is a particular surprise, coming within $9 million of “Rogue One.”) Wider, more-expensive holiday studio releases were mixed at best, with only “Passengers” showing above-average life. However, awards contenders “Fences,” “Manchester by the Sea,” and “La La Land” are thriving.
