Antiquarian typewriter collector Martin Howard over brunch in the garden of Narcissa, next door to the Standard Hotel, joined me for a conversation on California Typewriter, Doug Nichol's documentary featuring Tom Hanks, John Mayer, Jeremy Mayer, Pulitzer Prize winners David McCullough and Sam Shepard, and a reenactment of Ed Ruscha and Mason Williams' Royal Road Test execution. Martin is the glue of the film as we are taken on an historical journey for his search to purchase a Sholes & Glidden typewriter.

‘Rivers of London: Detective Stories #2′ Review

24 July 2017 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics

Rivers of London continues to be one of the consistently best books out there month after month. It combines the best of both worlds, story wise. We get clear, defined story arc’s, which allow for anything and everything the writers can dream up, but we also get the comfort of a recurring cast of characters, all nicely defined and free to come in and out of the narrative as the story demands. It all adds up to one of the most entertaining books out there. The never changing (so far, fingers crossed) writing and art team is also a great help, as it keeps this world consistent. Fans tend to like consistent.

So Rivers of London: Detective Stories #1 was primarily about Peter Grant’s attempt to get his nose in for a promotion to detective, »

Olivia Cooke to Topline “Vanity Fair” TV Adaptation

28 June 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Olivia Cooke on “Bates Motel: After Hours”: A&E

Bates Motel” alumna Olivia Cooke is following in Reese Witherspoon’s footsteps: she’ll take on the role of Becky Sharp in an upcoming Amazon Studios and ITV adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray’s beloved novel “Vanity Fair.” According to Deadline, shooting for the seven-part drama kicks off in September. Gwyneth Hughes (“Dark Angel,” “The Girl”) penned the script.

Set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, the series “follows Sharp as she attempts to claw her way out of poverty and scale the heights of English Society,” the source summarizes. “Her story of villainy, crime, merriment, lovemaking, jilting, laughing, cheating, fighting, and dancing, takes her all the way to the court of King George IV, via the Battle of Waterloo, breaking hearts and losing fortunes along the way.”

Julia Stannard (“War & Peace”) will serve as producer, and James Strong (“Broadchurch”) is set to direct.

There have been a number of adaptations of the 1848 novel, with Witherspoon most recently taking on the role of Sharp in Mira Nair’s “Vanity Fair” in 2004.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” “Ouija,” and “The Signal” are among Cooke’s other credits. The British actress has a number of high-profile projects in the works, including Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi thriller “Ready Player One,” “Life Itself,” an ensemble drama about intersecting lives from “This Is Us” creator Dan Fogelman, and “Gonzo Girl,” Rebecca Thomas’ adaptation of the Della Pietra book.

“Of course I’m a feminist, it would be ridiculous if I didn’t believe in equal rights for women and men,” Cooke has said. “My role models? My mum — my mum is my biggest role model.” When she was asked if she looked up to anyone in Hollywood, Cooke explained that she loves Kate Winslet’s work and lots of other actresses, “but I don’t want to be them,” she emphasized. “I just really want to be the best version of myself, I think. But I do like the trajectory of some people’s careers and things, but I think I am just trying to work out how to be an adult and figure out things about myself.”

Olivia Cooke to Topline “Vanity Fair” TV Adaptation was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »
