‘There’s Johnny’ Star Ian Nelson on Hollywood Sexism: No Denying ‘Women Are Treated Differently’

Hulu’s new comedy “There’s Johnny” revolves around the behind-the-scenes world of late night television, as witnessed by wide-eyed Hollywood newbie Andy Klavin, played by Ian Nelson. One of the most prominent themes of the show is how abysmally women are treated in the workplace. One character in particular, Joy (Jane Levy), receives the brunt of innuendos and crude jokes from male executives and writers on Johnny Carson’s show, though it’s clear: The nightly broadcast wouldn’t go on without her. There’s no denying it, Nelson told TheWrap in a recent interview: “Women are treated differently than men in the workplace.

Joss Whedon Is Still Directing Batgirl, But That Could Change

Earlier today, just before Hollywood gets ready to shut down for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, an intriguing report surfaced that claimed Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated Batgirl project would no longer have director Joss Whedon at the helm, but it seems that's not true. That report claimed Warner Bros. made the decision "months ago" not to bring Joss Whedon back for Batgirl, after the Justice League reshoots went on far too long, with a controversial letter written by the director's ex-wife reportedly playing a factor in the studio's "decision" to remove him from Batgirl. However, that initial report from a website dubbed Super Bro Movies has been taken down, while another report citing sources close to the production reveal Joss Whedon is still on board to direct Batgirl.

The report stated that Joss Whedon is currently working on the script for this Batgirl movie and that he is still in fact attached to direct.

‘There’s…Johnny!’ Review: Hulu’s Carson-Era ‘Tonight Show’ Dramedy Is a Sweet ’70s Fairy Tale

‘There’s…Johnny!’ Review: Hulu’s Carson-Era ‘Tonight Show’ Dramedy Is a Sweet ’70s Fairy Tale
As far as audience surrogates go, you can’t get any better or time-tested than a wide-eyed optimist thrust into the middle of a culture shock. “There’s…Johnny!” protagonist Andy Klavin (Ian Nelson) ticks all those boxes, becoming a gateway to the backstage world at the Johnny Carson-hosted “Tonight Show” in Hulu’s new seven-part comedy series. But there’s a distinct style and approach to the show around Andy that elevates this from a comedy curiosity or a wistful passion project to something worth immersing in.

Rather than re-creating faint replications of antics from the time when Carson ruled late night, “There’s…Johnny!” (originally produced for Seeso, before that comedy service shut down) uses actual archival footage from the show, even incorporating memorable moments as significant plot points for the characters just off-camera. Johnny, Ed McMahon, and even a few notable guest stars pop up on

Exclusive Interview: Castle Rock cast and creators talk about new Stephen King series

With Castle Rock coming to Hulu next year, the cast and creators of the show took a break from production on the fifth episode of the 10-part series to come on down to New York Comic Con f0r a panel at the Hammerstein Ballroom. Beforehand, however, Flickering Myth had the pleasure of asking a few questions to stars Bill Skarsgård, Melanie Lynskey and Andre Holland, as well as executive producers and masterminds behind the Stephen King-inspired show, Dustin Thomason and Sam Shaw.

The show takes place in Castle Rock, Maine, a common setting for many of King’s works (including Needful Things, The Dead Zone, Cujo and more), which Shaw describes as “the worst luck town in the world.” Between “two serial killers, a homicidal rabid dog [and] demonic trucks,” the town is an “archaeological site” of sorts “where there are horrors, nightmares and stories behind every door.” Each

Exclusive: Castle Rock and It star Bill Skarsgård hasn’t met Stephen King yet

The following is an excerpt from Justin Cook’s interview with the cast and creators of Castle Rock at New York Comic Con…

It’s safe to say that 2017 has been a good year for Bill Skarsgård. Not only has the young actor’s name been on the rise ever since starring as Pennywise the Dancing Clown in Andy Muschietti’s hugely successful adaptation of Stephen King’s It, but he’s also currently shooting Hulu’s Castle Rock, an anthology series that brings together a number of King’s works set in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine.

Clearly, Skarsgård has King to thank for much of his success, but as it turns out (as of Sunday, October 8th), the actor and best-selling author still have yet to meet.

Paul Reiser on Hulu Saving His Johnny Carson Comedy ‘There’s… Johnny!’ and Giving It a Premiere Date — Exclusive
After months of sitting in limbo, Paul Reiser’s period comedy “There’s… Johnny!” has finally been given a premiere date: All seven episodes launch November 16, on Hulu.

For Reiser, it’s a relief to finally get to show his pet project to the world. “There’s… Johnny!” had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year and was originally set to debut on NBC Universal’s Seeso digital platform in August. But then Seeso was shut down, leaving all of its original series hanging.

Some of Seeso’s existing programs, including “Harmontown,” were sold to another digital company, Vrv. After three or four months of conversations with various potential homes, “There’s… Johnny!” finally landed at Hulu, as part of an overall distribution deal the streaming service signed with NBCU.

It's Bill Skarsgard Has a New Stephen King Project Coming, and It Looks Absolutely Chilling

If American Horror Story and Lost had a baby, and then that baby had another baby with Stephen King, it would probably look something like Hulu's upcoming TV series Castle Rock. The drama is from executive producer J.J. Abrams and the twisted mind of King, who's been using the fictional town of Castle Rock as a setting for a number of his novels over the years (The Dead Zone, Doctor Sleep, Revival). Although any specifics about the show are still under wraps, we do have a few ideas about where it's headed and who we'll see on screen. Judging from the first trailer, above, the series will intertwine characters and themes from King's body of work, which we get a hint of in the trailer's last shot (which shows a sinking car with a "Department of Maine Corrections, Shawshank" sticker on the trunk, wink wink). The show also boasts a

Castle Rock 2nd trailer debuts at Nycc

  • Cinelinx
In a past episode of channel control, we talked about a show named Castle Rock. This upcoming 10 episode Hulu original series is a psychological thriller anthology and will be based off the fictional town of the Castle Rock, Maine which has been used in numerous Stephen King Novels. The town has been used as the back drop for The Dead Zone, Cujo, Needful Things, and at least 8 other stories by Mr. King. The town has even been mentioned in over 20 stories including Creepshow, The Stand, Gerald’s Game, & 11/22/63.

In the first teaser, we hear multiple voice-overs as the names of books, movies, or characters from his stories are shown on the screen. It ends with a dark map of the North-Eastern Us and the words Castle Rock across the screen. It’s pretty much standard fare for a teaser, which is nothing more than “Hey! We’re making a show.

Rumor: Dredd’s Olivia Thirlby Linked With Joss Whedon’s Batgirl

A new name has been reportedly linked with Joss Whedon’s upcoming solo movie for Barbara Gordon Aka Batgirl. According to The Daily Popcorn, actress Olivia Thirlby is on the director’s radar for the title role.

Comic book movie fans will know Thirlby from her turn as Judge Anderson opposite Karl Urban in 2012’s Dredd. Her performance in the cult favourite movie was praised at the time, so we know that she has the chops to play a badass character. At age 31, Thirlby is potentially a little older than we expected the on-screen Batgirl to be, as previous reports have stated that Whedon would be drawing from Gail Simone’s college age iteration of the character, but the actress’ youthful looks shouldn’t make it too difficult for her to play younger than her years.

Thirlby’s casting would also make sense based on comments Whedon’s made about
