Joseph Gordon-Levitt on ‘Snowden’: What He Did Was a Really Positive Thing for the Country

14 September 2016 9:38 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“I would consider it an honor to tell his story,” said Joseph Gordon-Levitt at the New York City premiere of “Snowden” at AMC Lincoln Center Tuesday night.

Levitt plays Edward Snowden in the political drama surrounding the whisteblower’s untold story of how he came to reveal illegal surveillance activities performed by the National Security Agency.

“First off, I was just flattered. But I really had a lot of learning to do. My personal opinion is what he did was a really positive thing for the country,” added Gordon-Levitt.

The Oliver Stone-directed film also stars Shailene Woodley, Zachary Quinto, Scott Eastwood, Lakeith Stanfield, and Ben Schnetzer.

Stone, who visited Russia nine times and consulted with the real-life Snowden on the project, told Variety that this film was created to shed light on the “human being” who is often called either a “traitor” or “hero.”

The Top 10 TV Shows of 2016, So Far

8 July 2016 11:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

10. “The Night Manager

It took Oscar-winning filmmaker Susanne Bier to finally bring John Le Carre’s espionage thriller to life, and boy, did she ever. The miniseries was striking in every way, from the global locales and picturesque hotels to the way characters were displayed upon such backdrops. More than just eye candy, Tom Hiddleston as soldier-turned-spy Jonathan Pine was a man with a mission, quietly stoic in the face of his nemesis Richard Roper, played with dangerous glee by Hugh Laurie. Olivia Colman brought the heart, Elizabeth Debicki the heartache and Tom Hollander a sense of impotent rage. The storytelling was large in scale yet intimate in how it played out, and it’s no wonder that viewers are hoping for more, even though Le Carre never wrote a sequel.

The 21 Best TV Episodes of 2016 (So Far)

7 July 2016 1:32 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Warning: Spoilers below for the listed shows.  “The Americans

“The Magic of David Copperfield V: The Statue of Liberty Disappears” (Episode 8)

Time jumps are a tricky business, especially for a show where every moment matters. And on “The Americans,” you better believe the devil is in the details. So Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields’ choice to jump forward seven months after a particularly tough stretch for everyone’s favorite secret agents was a damn ballsy move — that paid off big time. That being said, the opening of Episode 8 was just as important as its ending, and just as tricky. Told in nearly absolute silence, Phillip’s ride to the airfield with Martha set a stark tone for what was coming, making it all the more believable the Jennings would need a seven-month vacation soon after. A beautiful story told in thrilling, variant rhythms, “The Americans” knows itself so well it »

First Patriots Day Poster Remembers The Boston Strong

6 July 2016 8:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s one of three separate features in the works based on the tragic events of the 2013 terrorist attack – rubbing shoulders with both Boston Strong and indie drama Altar Rock – but it is CBS Films and Lionsgate’s Patriots Day that will sprint into theaters first come December.

Aligning with the recent July 4 celebrations, the studios have now premiered the poignant first poster for Peter Berg’s all-star drama, showcasing a series of shoelaces woven into the style of the famous Stars and Stripes.

At the tip-top of the Berg’s cast list is Mark Wahlberg – reuniting with the director after Lone Survivor – who leads the charge against the suspected offenders as Sgt. Tommy Saunders, a decorated officer in blue described as a “composite Boston Police Department officer who leads the manhunt for the chief suspects.”

Ever the bankable supporting actor, John Goodman (10 Cloverfield Lane) is also part of the star-studded ensemble, »

Emmy Awards: 18 Underappreciated Shows That Deserve a Vote

16 June 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Emmy Awards voting has never been more complicated, with more series than ever vying for those coveted few slots in 2016. And while the usual suspects will naturally get attention, it’s those hidden gems that tend to get buried in the stacks of “For Your Consideration” mailers. To cut through the clutter, Variety’s TV team has selected a few favorites that we think deserve your vote.

Baskets,” FX

Starring Zach Galifianakis as “non-identical” twins Chip and Dale, Louie Anderson as their Costco obsessed mother, Christine, and 47-year-old acting novice Martha Kelly as the romantic lead, Martha, FX’s “Baskets” is not like any other comedy, or show, on television. The funny-sad serialized storytelling of showrunner Jonathan Krisel takes all of these characters on unexpected journeys full of emotional discoveries, pratfalls, bittersweet self-reflection and fart jokes. It’s completely silly, completely serious and completely wonderful. — Geoff Berkshire

Tom Hiddleston and Aaron Paul on ‘Breaking Bad,’ TV vs. Film and Humbling Auditions

9 June 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Aaron Paul and Tom Hiddleston had never met before our Variety “Actors on Actors” studio. But a bromance was born even before the taping began thanks to the dartboard in the green room [yes, they’re a tad competitive]. The mutual fans peppered each other with probing questions about their projects — Hiddleston stars in AMC’s “The Night Manager,” while Paul headlines Hulu’s “The Path” — but they also found time to swap stories about auditions gone awry.

Tom Hiddleston: How did this role [on “The Path”] come to you? Did it come to you as an idea? Did it come to you as a script? I imagine you must have had so many choices at that moment.

Aaron Paul: I actually wasn’t really entertaining the idea of jumping into TV so soon. When it came to me it was about three years after we had wrapped “Breaking Bad.” It was already set up, it was »

Emmys 2016: ‘UnReal,’ ‘The Path,’ ‘Mr. Robot’ Look to Break Ground for Their Networks

6 June 2016 1:44 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With so many big dogs in the annual Emmy hunt, what’s a kudos underdog to do?

Several networks not usually associated with Emmy-bait series are entering or re-entering this year’s drama race in a major way. From Lifetime’s “UnReal” to Hulu’s “The Path,” these series tussle to stand out from the pack of the usual heavyweights that dominate the category.

Jason Katims has been at this game for a while, working on a string of critically acclaimed series including “My So-Called Life,” “Relativity,” “Parenthood” and “Friday Night Lights.”

But when it comes to garnering awards attention for a cachet drama like, “The Path,” he jokes, “If I knew the answer to that, I’d have more Emmys.”

Obviously, TV creatives can only put their best work forward and hope for the best — while also making it so unique and special people have to pay attention.
