The new one-hour Showtime drama series I’M Dying Up Here explores L.A.’s famed ‘70s stand-up comedy scene where the careers of legends such as David Letterman, Jay Leno and Richard Pryor were launched.

‘I’m Dying Up Here’ Review: Jim Carrey’s Overstuffed Take on Stand-Up Comedy Loses the Room — SXSW 2017

15 March 2017 10:29 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The dark side of stand-up comedy is always lurking behind the jokes, and “I’m Dying Up Here,” Showtime’s drama series set in Los Angeles’ ’70s comedy scene, aims to bring it to light. Tracking a group of comedians who work at a club on the Sunset strip, the first episode slowly teases a tragedy meant to tie all these stories together, even if the premiere feels unwieldy before every member of the large ensemble is introduced. An hour-long drama about the lives of comedians feels a tad antithetical even before you start counting expendable plot lines, but “I’m Dying Up Here” shows brief flashes of focused merit in its counter-intuitive take.

What works best among the many ingredients at play is first how producer Jim Carrey and showrunner David Flebotte highlight the serious side of a world made to look lighthearted. Second, and more simply, is Ari Graynor’s Cassie, »

The Disaster Artist image reveals James Franco’s Tommy Wiseau

14 February 2017 1:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

New Line Cinema has revealed an image from this year’s upcoming The Disaster Artist, an adaptation of the novel of the same name detailing the troubled production of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room, which often gets labelled as the worst movie ever made. The image gives us a first look at James Franco as the titular disaster artist Wiseau, along with his brother Dave Franco, who is playing Greg Sestero, a real-life friend of Wiseau who played Mark in The Room.

The Disaster Artist is set to have its world premiere at the SXSW film festival next month. The star-studded cast of the film also includes Seth Rogen (The Night Before), Zac Efron (Neighbors), Kate Upton (The Other Woman), Ari Graynor (The Sopranos), Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook), Andrew Santino (Sin City Saints), Hannibal Buress (Neighbors), Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2), and a cameo from Tommy Wiseau himself. »

James Franco Is The Disaster Artist In New Photo For Upcoming Drama

13 February 2017 1:35 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Often referred to as the “Citizen Kane of bad movies,” Tommy Wiseau’s The Room wrote its name in cinema’s history books for all the wrong reasons back in 2003. A spluttering mess of plot holes and cringe-worthy dialogue, Wiseau’s self-confessed passion project – one which he wrote, directed and starred in – has since gone on to become something of a cult classic, and soon James Franco and Co. will introduce moviegoers to the story behind the so-called misguided masterpiece.

Its title? The Disaster Artist, a big-screen rendition of Greg Sestero’s novel of the same name. Those already familiar with Sestero’s source material will know all too well that the author pulls no punches in his autopsy of The Room, which is hardly surprising given he co-starred in the cult original as conflicted best friend Mark. Fast forward to 2017 and it is Dave Franco that will be playing the part of Mark, »
