Alex Jones Is Too Crazy For TV: Why Shows Can’t Pull Off Conspiracy-Theorist Characters

21 April 2017 3:07 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Conspiracy talk-show host Alex Jones is such a dangerous cartoon that even parodies on TV series like “The X-Files” and “Homeland” can’t capture his lunacy.

The characters on those shows feature some depth, and offer more anger (they at least got that part right) than outright madness. Compare that to the Jones we see barking into the microphone on “Info Wars.” This week, the question of whether or not Jones is actually playing a frothing-at-the-mouth, tinfoil-hat salesman became a centerpiece of the host’s child custody dispute.

“I’m concerned that he is engaged in felonious behavior, threatening a member of Congress,” said ex-wife Kelly Jones at a pretrial hearing, referencing a profanity-laced recent rant about Rep. Adam Schiff. “He broadcasts from home. The children are there, watching him broadcast.” However, according to Jones’ attorney, Randall Wilhite, “He’s playing a character,” Wilhite told the court. “He is a performance artist. »

15 April 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

General Hospital spoilers indicate we know very little about the actual paternity of Jake Webber. It turns out he’s got some ideas that Jason might not be his father.

But we also know that she makes sure her kids get to spend as much time as they can with their fathers. Jake spends ample time with his dad, Jason, and his stepmom Sam. They work hard to keep him involved in their own life, and it’s all

‘Homeland’ Finale: Showrunner Alex Gansa Talks Season 6, Carrie’s Future and Planning the End Game

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

An uneasy transfer of power in Washington, the plague of fake news and legal targeting of Muslims were the big themes of “Homeland’s” sixth season.

In keeping with the show’s prescient tradition, those topics were also front and center in real-world headlines during the show’s run, which concludes Sunday with the finale, “America First,” written by Alex Gansa and Ron Nyswaner and directed by Lesli Linka Glatter.

Homeland” showrunner/exec producer Alex Gansa took time out from putting the finishing touches on the episode to speak with Variety about surprises from this season, adjustments made along the way, and his hope to return Carrie Mathison to full-time intelligence work soon. He also says they’re hoping to map out a two-season storyline for what’s expected to be the show’s final outings in seasons seven and eight.

Trump election influenced 'Homeland' storyline

4 April 2017 4:48 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Cast and crew on Showtime hit talk fake news, keeping things fresh at Los Angeles panel.

The election of Donald Trump and the arrival of fake news in the national dialogue changed the course of Homeland.

“I will say that the election of Donald Trump made us all sit up in our chairs in the story room,” showrunner and executive producer Alex Gansa (pictured second from left) told an audience during a panel session at NeueHouse in West Hollywood on Monday night.

“Around episode five or six [of Season Six] when the election happened, we realised that we were going to have to adjust and change the narrative a little bit.”

Gansa was speaking on Homeland’s Fyc panel, the Television Academy’s first of the awards season where he was joined by fellow executive producer Lesli Linka Glatter and cast members Claire Danes, Mandy Patinkin, Rupert Friend and Elizabeth Marvel.

“The first thing we wanted to address was this »

‘Homeland’ Showrunner and Cast Discuss Picking a Fight with Alex Jones, Plans for Season 7 at Emmys Fyc Event

4 April 2017 7:21 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With a female president in office for Season 6, it may look like “Homeland” was betting on Hillary Clinton to win the election. But that doesn’t mean Showtime’s Emmy-winning drama lost out when the Democratic nominee came up short.

“The election of Donald Trump made everyone in the writers’ room sit up in our chairs,” showrunner Alex Gansa said. “We realized we were going to have to adjust and change the narrative a little bit.”

Gansa, speaking after a screening of “Homeland” (Episode 11, “R Is for Romeo”) at the Television Academy’s first official For Your Consideration event of 2017, sat alongside directing showrunner and executive producer Lesli Linka Glatter and cast members Claire Danes, Mandy Patinkin, Rupert Friend, and Elizabeth Marvel. The group discussed the unexpected relevancy of the drama’s politically charged new season, starting with how Trump’s election night victory changed the course of Season 6.

‘Homeland’ Recap: ‘R for Romeo’ Tackles Big Picture Questions, Intimate Moments

2 April 2017 7:05 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not seen the April 2 episode of “Homeland.”

“R for Romeo,” the penultimate episode of “Homeland’s” sixth season, is packed with fiery moments that allow every key player in the ensemble to shine as the end draws near.

The hour is also stocked with of-the-moment observations on the cottage industry of fake news, the maelstrom of hate on social media, the responsibility of mainstream journalists, the demonizing of political opponents, and the struggle to separate alternative facts from fiction. “Deep state,” “deplorables,” and “Not My President” are buzzwords referenced in contexts that are only slightly removed from our real-life political discourse. This episode is painful to watch in that regard.

The episode is smartly written, by Chip Johannessen and Patrick Harbinson, to avoid proselytizing — even when President-elect Elizabeth Keane (Elizabeth Marvel) is speechifying at her press conference and in her verbal firefight with the creepy conservative firebrand Brett O »

‘Homeland’ Recap: Paranoia Abounds in Episode 8, ‘Alt.Truth’

12 March 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Alt.Truth” ranks as the most paranoid episode of “Homeland” since Nicholas Brody was finally outed as a fellow traveler of terrorists in season one.

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t seen the March 12 episode of “Homeland.”

Simply put, the eighth installment is the best hour of “Homeland’s” sixth season so far. It has everything that “Homeland” does best — capers, cat-and-mouse chases, the formation of unholy alliances, snappy banter about ideological dilemmas, whiplash-inducing plot twists, and a surfeit of grim-face Saul and quiver-face Carrie. By the end, the bell tolls for a well-loved character. And there’s a touch of “Flash Gordon” in the closing seconds that is forgivable because everything else that comes before is riveting.

“Alt.Truth” is sharply written by Patrick Harbinson, razor-sharply directed by Lesli Linka Glatter, and grounded by incredible work (as usual) from stars Claire Danes (Carrie Mathison), Mandy Patinkin (Saul Berenson) and Rupert Friend (Peter Quinn). The »
