‘Homeland’: Mandy Patinkin, Alex Gansa 9/11 Museum Tour Sets Stage for NYC-Set Season

7 October 2016 11:21 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The “Homeland” team is famous for doing their homework.

Producers and core cast members take a field trip to Washington, D.C. every year to connect with key players in the intelligence and national security community. Those meetings help set the tone and the storyline for the Showtime drama that has been remarkably — sometimes eerily — prescient about developments in the war on terror over its five seasons to date.

This year, part of “Homeland’s” fact-finding mission was a visit to the National September 11 Memorial Museum, erected on the site in lower Manhattan where the World Trade Center towers once stood.

Homeland” showrunner Alex Gansa, exec producer Howard Gordon and star Mandy Patinkin brought family members and a few friends along for the Oct. 5 tour led by museum president and CEO Joe Daniels. The close-up look at twisted steel girders and other artifacts from the devastation was a searing experience for the group, as »

Rodgers and Hammerstein return to the silver screen with Carousel

8 April 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

No one is exactly sure why Frank Sinatra walked off the set of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s musical Carousel(1956) on the first day of shooting.

Some say it was because he didn’t want to film some scenes twice — once in regular CinemaScope and once in CinemaScope 55 — and others claim it was due to marital problems he was having with wife Ava Gardner.

The producers asked Gordon MacRae — who had starred with Carousel’s leading lady Shirley Jones the year before in Oklahoma! — to take over the starring role of Billy Bigelow. The film opens in heaven with the deceased Billy being told his wife and child are in trouble down on Earth. Through flashbacks we see how hot-tempered carnival barker Billy falls for the sweet Julie (Jones), and how he turns to crime to provide for her when he discovers she’s going to have a baby.

While Sinatra possessed a golden voice, »
