Let Laverne Cox Take You on a Magical Journey to Orange Is the New Black's Dance Parties

20 June 2016 7:02 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Orange Is the New Black season four got you down? Please allow Laverne Cox to take you on a journey, a journey to Orange Is the New Black's wrap parties. When the Emmy nominee sat down with Kristin Dos Santos back in January, we had no idea what was to come in the Netflix dramedy. So instead of trying to get scoop and spoilers out of this fine lady, which she wouldn't divulge anyway, we decided to have some fun. In the video above, we tasked Cox with a game of "Most likely…" where she would have to tell us which of her fellow Orange Is the New Black inmates would be most likely to do certain actions, like break during a scene or steal food. The conversation then turned toward Orange Is the New Black's »

TV Review: ‘Orange Is the New Black’ Season 4

17 June 2016 3:23 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Orange Is the New Black” has been less a television show than a movement. The drama — Netflix’s only truly great one — burst on the scene in 2012 as a vehicle of change, both in terms of what we view as prestige television and how we think about mass incarceration in the United States. Author Piper Kerman’s book of the same name, which loosely makes up the source material for show, proved as a window into the prison system for a readership that both lived outside of it and never expected to be a part of it; Piper herself as an author and as a character in the show (played by Taylor Schilling) spends most of her time at Litchfield highlighting the differences between her and the other inmates.

It’s a frustrating reflex, but a useful one, too; in terms of educating its mostly privileged audience, “Orange Is The New Black” is the most influential show »

‘Orange Is the New Black’ Season 4 Is ‘Darker,’ ‘More Dramatic,’ Cast Says

17 June 2016 2:11 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

New York City’s Sva Theater sparkled on Thursday night with the big and bright personalities of the comedic cast of “Orange Is the New Black.” The red carpet premiere, hosted by Netflix and Vanity Fair, previewed the first episode of the fourth season, which sets up some of the major issues the inmates will face over the course of the 13-episode run.

“Darker,” “heavy,” and “more dramatic” were just a few of the words used to describe the new season by actresses Taylor Schilling (Piper), Jessica Pimentel (Maria Ruiz), and Emily Althaus (Kukudio).

Uzo Aduba (Suzanne “Crazy Eyes”) told Variety she thinks the true wild card this season isn’t even a person. “The past three seasons the new character was always a physical inmate and this season I think the new character is the system.”

This system, marred by money and privatization, leads to surmounting tensions within the prison walls, especially »

Orange Is the New Black Season 4 Episode 1 Review

17 June 2016 8:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kirsty Capes reviews the first episode of Orange Is the New Black season 4…

Everyone’s favourite criminals are back in the highly anticipated fourth installment of Netflix’s most popular original series from Jenji Kohan.

With plenty of plot threads in need of tying up after season 3’s cliffhanger ending, season 4 begins, unlike any of the previous series, directly following on from season 3’s finale. Inmates have just escaped through a hole in the fence at Litchfield due to chronic understaffing, and Alex (Laura Prepon) is at the mercy of her old boss’s hitman, who has infiltrated the prison as a guard.

Both of these plot points are tied up fairly neatly within the first five minutes of Episode 1, which is a little bit of a disappointment, considering how serious they are in terms of Oitnb’s comedy-realism angle. Mercifully, Oitnb season 4 seems to be following the trend of »

Orange Is The New Black Season 4 Review

16 June 2016 2:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Six episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

There are nearly infinite reasons why Orange Is The New Black has resonated so loudly with so many people in such a short span of time. Its honest characters, juicy drama, and unashamedly blunt depiction of what life in a prison is like (as a woman, a black woman, a Dominican woman, etc) are bound to constitute a few of those. Others might appreciate Jenji Kohan’s masterfully laid-back tone that – after four years – still ebbs and flows into mouth-covering shockers with ease – which makes sense, given the woman essentially created the bedrock of the unforgettable season finale in Weeds.

I like its simple insights. Suzanne, aka Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba), has slowly been getting more to do – and be – since her pie-throwing meme-ifying in season 1 and, as things go downhill for her in season 4, she reminisces about the speechless cues her parents »

How ‘Archer,’ Animation’s ‘Mad Men,’ Got So Smart and Sexy (Emmy Watch)

16 June 2016 1:50 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Throughout its seven seasons, the spy comedy “Archer” has remained as smart and sexy as anything on TV, thanks to creator Adam Reed, voice actor H. Jon Benjamin as suave yet incredibly lucky Sterling Archer (Bond meets Clouseau) and a graphic 2D animation style by Reed’s Atlanta-based studio, Floyd County Prods.

The result is the “Mad Men” of animation with a decidedly ’60s vibe. However, in the seventh season, Archer and the gang (a dysfunctional version of MI6) moved from New York to Hollywood after being banned by the CIA and opened a detective agency. Thus the series became more serialized with a framing device right out of “Sunset Boulevard,” and left us with a cliff-hanger worthy of “Game of Thrones.”

Laverne Cox On How ‘There’s A Little Performance in Gender,’ From ‘Orange is the New Black’ to ‘Rocky Horror’

Warning – the below contains spoilers for the plot of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”

Fans of the “Rocky Horror Picture Show” may be nearly as excited as Laverne Cox that she stars in Fox’s upcoming remake as the iconic Dr. Frank-n-Furter.

Cox told IndieWire that in taking on the role, she was surprisingly affected by Frank-n-Furter’s sad fate: “So this man, you make him, and the first day out he cheats on you with this random chick! It’s catastrophic and devastating and maddening! Then, to be killed by your staff; it’s horribly tragic.”

There are connections to be made between the iconic character of Dr. Frank-n-Furter and Cox’s Emmy-nominated work on “Orange is the New Black.” Playing Sophia on “Orange” helped Cox become one of television’s most notable stars and break down boundaries for trans performers — but while the character has her own innate tragedy, the role originated on the screen by Tim Curry has a very different, sexual energy to it.

“Masculine, feminine, let me just accept all of these things about myself,” Cox said during our interview this January, just before she was set to begin rehearsals for “Rocky.” An edited transcript follows.

It seems like exciting things are happening for you.

It’s a good time. I’m about to start “Rocky Horror Picture Show.” I’m just excited and anxious to get going and get started with it. I’ve been preparing since I found out that I was cast. I’m just ready to do it with everybody.

Very apropo for “Rocky Horror Picture Show” — “doing it” with everybody. 

[laughs] It’s “Rocky.”

Was this ever something you imagined happening?

I never thought it was possible. Years ago, I became obsessed with “Rocky” in college. I remember I did a cabaret and I sang “Going Home.” I was just obsessed! I transitioned and as a trans-woman and I never thought that I should sing a song about a transvestite. I loved it but I never thought it was an option to do. From my understanding, white men have played Dr. Frank-n-Furter for 40 years. So I never thought it was an option. So when they approached me I thought, “I want this. I want to do this.” I tested and they offered it.

It’s a really exciting choice for them. 

I’m just really excited about the challenge. It’s completely different from anything I’ve done before. There’s so many elements. I’ve just been preparing a lot. I’ve learned a lot about the nuances of the music and the character. The fact that Richard O’Brien was inspired by an homage to old Hollywood and scream queens and this whole diva worship underlies how Frank-n-Furter has constructed her persona, her personality. That seemed to influence Tim Curry’s performance. It’s camp. I think it was Susan Sontag who said, “Camp is the light that tells the truth.” Camp as in invisible wink. Also looking for those truthful moments, where the veneer comes off and we see the truth of who this woman is.

It’s a really sad story, at the end of it.

There’s something very catastrophic about finding the technology to create human life and to create the perfect man. I think a lot of women would love to be able to do that — heterosexual women, that is. So this man, you make him, and the first day out he cheats on you with this random chick! It’s catastrophic and devastating and maddening! Then, to be killed by your staff; it’s horribly tragic.

Riff Raff talks to Frank-n-Furter about her excess, because there is something very extravagant and excessive about her. She freezes everyone and then creates a floor show. At the end of it, I feel like she’s longing for love and attention and acceptance. I think we all want that at the end of the day. We just want love and a space to be fully who you are. I often like to think about this place where she’s from: Transexual, Transylvania. There’s not that much about that place in the script but I often like to imagine that it’s a place where you can create yourself in terms of gender and race, where you can be in this completely free space. I suspect even in Transexual, Transylvania, there’s even some pushback. I think Riff Raff sort of epitomizes that: “You can choose your gender but you can only go so far.” Frank, she doesn’t want it to be that there are limits. She doesn’t want limits. That’s just a wonderful thing to play.

Compared to Sophia, [“Rocky’s”] completely different. So much of how Sophia’s been constructed, there’s a little bit of Laverne sass in her — but I think, for me, Sophia was always one of those people who before she transitioned tried to overcompensate and be masculine. So that sort of predates the way I think about her gender performance.

I think there’s a little performance in gender, this innate authenticity. That’s very different and she’s incarcerated and she doesn’t have any freedom. Frank-n-Furter is this person who is in complete control of everything around her and is probably a person who is abusive. She’s a murderer. She’s fun, but she does some reprehensible things. Sophia does too. Those are the similarities, but the singing and dancing and sexuality is different. I think Frank-n-Furter is sexualized in a way that Sophia never has been. That’s the way she’s been written and her relationship with [wife] Crystal; she’s just not a sexual being. Frank-n-Furter is all sex. That’s wonderful.

What’s always been such a profoundly beautiful and sad part of Sophia’s backstory is the fact that the reason for the credit card fraud [which landed her in prison] was to finance her transition. She lost her freedom for her transition — which is in complete contrast to Frank-n-Furter.

Absolutely. There have been so many moments where Sophia’s discovering her womanhood and able to be herself finally. She can just let go of everything. For me, I had a period — I was never good at being butch, but I had a period where I tried to. When I finally just transitioned and was able to let go of that, just sit the way that I felt like sitting… I’ll sit in some ways that people perceive as being masculine, but I’m in the stage about everything. Masculine, feminine, let me just accept all of these things about myself. Sophia is in this place where she doesn’t have to pretend, which is wonderful. Whether you’re trans or not, if you can get to that place where you don’t have to pretend, it’s a wonderful place to be in.

Orange is the New Black” Season 4 premieres tomorrow on Netflix.

How They Created Lady Gaga’s Countess From ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ (Emmy Watch)

15 June 2016 4:43 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For makeup designer Eryn Kruger Mekash, every day was like Halloween on “American Horror Story: Hotel,” with a gallery of ghouls ranging from Lady Gaga’s fashionista vampire, the Countess, to Alex Ward’s creepy Addiction Demon with his a drill bit dildo, to Denis O’Hare’s scene-stealing transgender bartender, Liz Taylor.

Plus, there was an assortment of victims— most of them junkies— either sewn together or to the mattress of a bed, requiring challenging prosthetics.

“We had a lot of blood gags this season— more sliced throats than we usually do,” Mekash said. “So getting all those rigged and keeping the challenges of actual production up was a lot of work. They shot two or three episodes a day with three units, which meant a lot of prosthetic organization.”

The 111-year-old Countess runs the mysterious Hotel Cortez in Hollywood, and Gaga had the opportunity to show off 65 glam looks throughout the 20th century. The actress’ personal makeup artist, Sarah Tanno, collaborated with Mekash on the designs, and Mekash’s husband, Mike, did all of the blood-related prosthetics.

“She was turned into a vampire in the late ’20s, so we established all of the looks with Rudolph Valentino and his wife, Natacha Rambova [the costume and set designer],” Mekash recalled. “We saw ’30s makeup and the ’70s, which was her big heyday with disco, and then there was a time in the ’80s with Angela Bassetts’ character [Ramona Royale]. Then we had the modern-day stuff, which was incredibly glamorous.”

Speaking of Bassett’s Royale, her look ran the gamut from Diana Ross in “Mahogany” to various Blaxploitation actresses.

But, of course, Gaga’s Countess wasn’t the only vampire. There was also the young brother and sister. “I wanted to keep the vampire children subtle with pink, shiny makeup with dark circles to make it seem like there was extra blood in their bodies,” added Mekash.

The biggest challenge was The Addiction Demon, which took four-and-a-half hours to apply each day with a team of three artists. Created by Dave Anderson of Afx, he was wrapped in layers of sheets and covered in transparent jelly.

“Initially, it was all foam with prosthetics underneath, and there were layers and layers of silicone and also silicone liquid that could be made into sheets,” Mekash explained. “There was a chest piece and arm pieces and a facial mask that was glued down. Alex was covered from tip to toe— it was almost total sensory deprivation.”

For Liz Taylor, O’Hare endured a total body shave and showed off gold, red, black and blue sets of nails throughout the season.

“His look was patterned after Taylor in ‘Cleopatra’ and the eye makeup was inspired by an old bartender that [creator] Ryan Murphy met a long time ago,” Mekash said. “It was the first time that Denis ever wore such makeup.”

If you're like us, there's a good chance that you gulped down Season Three of Orange Is the New Black faster than you can say "Admiral Rodcocker." To say that Jenji Kohan's addictive prison comedy/drama is highly bingeable is a huge understatement; but the downside is that 12 months down the line, we're left with a hooch hangover and a »
