Corey Stoll is a busy man these days. Lucky for us, he managed to find a few minutes to discuss his latest film "Glass Chin," which costars Billy Crudup and is currently in competition at the Tribeca Film Festival. Modest but powerful, the film is a great showcase for Stoll’s understated, effective acting. He is not a big-name actor quite yet, but he is surely on his way.Stoll has appeared in numerous television series, but it was his role as the manipulated, dejected Peter Russo opposite Kevin Spacey’s vulture politician in the hit "House of Cards" that won him his first Golden Globe nomination and the love of TV critics and fans alike. He’s also been a regular on the stage, and it was his appearance in "A View From the Bridge" that caught the attention of Woody Allen, who consequently cast him as Ernest Hemingway »

Based on true events, Decoding Annie Parker is the hopeful and touching story of two remarkable women and their 15-year battle against a cruel and insidious illness, breast cancer. Waged on both scientific and emotional fronts, they are drawn together not just by the disease but by their shared determination and unconventional approaches to their research and to their lives. Annie Parker (Samantha Morton) has a personal relationship with breast cancer. Her mother and her sister died of the disease and »
Billy Crudup has mounted an impressive resume of film and theater roles, currently appearing as an eccentric businessman in "Glass Chin," in competition at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. His characters always have an edge to them, but this is the first time we see him as a straight villain, completely confident in his maliciousness. Crudup relished the role and the opportunity to work with director Noah Buschel, who challenged him with his unconventional, surprising style. Crudup’s alluring glee and slick charm seduce audiences as much as they do the film’s hero, a former boxer (Corey Stoll) to whom he promises to help restore his social status.In addition to winning a Tony Award (out of three nominations), Crudup has garnered extensive critical and public praise for his performances in such films as "Almost Famous," "Charlotte Gray," "Jesus’s Son," and "The Good Shepherd." The articulate, good-humored Crudup spoke to Indiewire about his long, »

As the music starts and the first scene opens up in Noah Buschel's Glass Chin, you may think you're about to watch the newest version of Rocky what with the running boxer at dawn, dramatic theme score and all. The story, however, is something altogether otherworldly and yet at the same time realistic in its aesthetic, bringing you down a road of lost morality and forgotten chances with some terrific performances by co-stars Marin Ireland and Billy Crudup. At the premiere party I was able to catch up with Buschel briefly and cram a few questions in about his unique style of shooting and why his leading man, Corey Stoll (House of Cards) is the 'dude' of the moment.Twitch: You have a very stylized, specific voice for storytelling....

“To win a war, you have to start one.” This HBO telefilm arrives nearly three decades after Larry Kramer’s play premiered off-Broadway. Mark Ruffalo, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, Jim Parsons and Julia Roberts star in the adaptation directed by Ryan Murphy and scripted by Kramer. Set in NYC during the onset of the HIV/AIDS crisis of the early ’80s, The Normal Heart follows gay activists and their allies in the medical community as they try to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic. HBO already is looking into a sequel. The telepic, which co-stars Alfred Molina, Joe Mantello, Jonathan Groff, Denis O’Hare, Stephen Spinella, Corey Stoll, Finn Wittrock and Bd Wong, bows May 25 on the premium channel. Here’s the first full trailer: »

HBO has released a new, full-length The Normal Heart trailer for director Ryan Murphy’s (Glee, American Horror Story) adaptation of the Tony Award-winning Larry Kramer stage play. The film follows the HIV/AIDS crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, and it looks at the nation’s sexual politics as gay activists and their allies in the medical community fought to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic to a city and nation in denial. Though Murphy is a bit hit and miss (his last two films were Running with Scissors and Eat, Pray, Love), I’m encouraged by The Normal Heart’s stellar ensemble cast and the fact that Kramer penned the screenplay. Mark Ruffalo and Taylor Kitsch, in particular, look to be standouts, and the tone feels reminiscent of the heartwrenching documentary How to Survive a Plague, in which Kramer plays an integral role.

One in every nine women will be stricken with breast cancer in their life, or in other words, approximately two million women across the next twenty years. You would think that would be enough to make people sit up and take notice, but geneticist Mary-Claire King had to fight to get anyone to pay attention. The upcoming "Decoding Annie Parker" is based on the true story of King's work, and she follows Annie Parker, a woman with breast cancer who has seen both her mother and sister die from the disease. For King, Parker confirms what she's long suspected, that there's a genetic pattern to breast cancer. And in this exclusive clip we see King, played by Helen Hunt, try and convince someone of her seemingly wild idea, with lives on the line if she isn't able to see her theory through.

FX has released a new promo and image from The Strain, the upcoming series from Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim) and Carlton Cuse (Lost), which is based on a trilogy of vampire novels by del Toro and Chuck Hogan (The Town). The promo gives us a glimpse at the worm responsible for spreading the virus at the heart of the story, while the image features Corey Stoll (House of Cards) in the lead role as Dr. Ephraim Goodweather…

(Cbr) FX has debuted a new teaser for "The Strain" that features a look at the cause of the series’ vampire infection: a parasitic capillary worm. Based on the novels by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, "The Strain" follows Cdc epidemiologist Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) and his team, sent to investigate a sealed airplane at John F. Kennedy International Airport. The situation snowballs into a battle to protect the entirety of New York City from a new viral vampiric threat. That said, these aren’t vampires based on romantic notions of recent years. “These are not sparkly brooding dudes with fangs and romantic problems,” showrunner Carlton Cuse said in January. “This is a really original re-imagining of vampire lore. There is sex in the show, but the vampires themselves are not having sex. They are not romantic creatures.” Debuting in July, "The Strain" also stars David Bradley, Kevin Durand, »

Steven Bernstein's drama Decoding Annie Parker recently made its debut at the Palm Beach International Film Festival, and now the film's first trailer and clip are available online. The film stars Samantha Morton as the title character, a woman stricken with breast cancer who works with oncologist Dr. Mary-Claire King (Helen Hunt) in order to explore the theory of a genetic inheritance of cancer. While the trailer gives a good suggestion of the surprisingly light-hearted tone of this true-to-life cancer-themed picture, the first clip (courtesy of Aaron Paul) is just downright strange out of context from the rest of the film, but enjoyable nonetheless. Decoding Annie Parker also stars Rashida Jones, Alice Eve, Maggie Grace, Corey Stoll, and Ben McKenzie, and opens in limited release on May 2nd. Take a look at our interviews with Paul and Grace about the picture here. Hit the jump to watch the Decoding Annie Parker »

Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan's brilliant vampire book The Strain will be coming to television via FX this summer. A new short teaser was just released, showing the impending, dooming darkness about to befall New York City and the world. I'm a big fan of the trilogy (the other two books are The Fall and The Night Eternal). They are thorough researched and realized stories, terrifying both in the vampire mythology, and and chillingly realistic portrayal the swift destruction of the human race, as much from our own hubris and ignorance as from the monsters.A Boeing 777 lands at JFK airport and suddenly shuts down, with all but four passengers seemingly dead.

A couple of years ago writer-director Noah Buschel unleashed his tiny, deeply affecting "Sparrows Dance,"a movie set in a single apartment, with only two characters. For his highly anticipated follow-up (at least by us), he has expanded his palette considerably, this time tackling a modestly scaled crime drama about a down-on-his-luck former boxer (Corey Stoll from "House of Cards") who becomes embroiled in the criminal operation of a weirdo gangster/restaurateur (Billy Crudup), all while struggling to maintain his longtime romantic relationship (Marin Ireland, who starred in "Sparrows Dance"). It's one of the best movies you'll see at this year's Tribeca Film Festival and what's more—we've got an exclusive clip. In the clip, Bud "The Saint" Gordon (Stoll) is trying to explain to his girlfriend (Ireland) about what went down the other night while doing a job for Jj (Crudup). We don't want to give away too much… »

FX has released a short, creepy new promo spot for Guillermo Del Toro's upcoming vampire TV series, The Strain. We could all use an insane new vampire story, and this could be it. The series is based on the book series that Del Toro worked on with author Chuck Hogan. It's a bioterror thriller about an outbreak in the U.S. of a virus that either kills those who are exposed to it or turns them into vampires. There's a lot of potential here for this to be an amazing series.
