The Line of Duty star discusses improvisation, Notts County and mucking about with the cast of This Is England

Thank you for all your questions. Some funny ones in there! I'm still trying to think about what I find most exotic - I'll get back to you on that. Thanks for all your support with my work, and it's still quite overwhelming that this is my job.

RickHall1 asks:

You, Stephen Lowe and Billy Ivory all feature on the Nottingham Trams. What is it about Nottingham and drama/theatre talent?

Maybe it's in the brown sauce... I think there's a lovely, humble trait that runs through Nottingham. We're a city that are incredibly proud of what we've achieved but we don't shout too loud about it. I think when people discover the talents that come out of Nottingham, it is getting bigger. But I think we'll always remain really humble.

Friends Effing Friends Effing Friends: Woody Allen's Godson Tries to Direct a Comedy

  • CultureCatch
Quincy Rose, the godson of Woody Allen and the offspring of the late Mickey Rose (an Allen collaborator on films such as Bananas and a writer for The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson), has just scribed, directed, produced, and edited his second feature film, Friends Effing Friends Effing Friends (Fefef) so roll out the red carpet and blow the horns. Such an amazing lack of talent has seldom been contained in a mere 117 minutes.

This is not to propose that Mr. Rose is totally bereft of any artistry. The trailer for his initial effort, Miles to Go (2012), in which he stars, displays an engagingly high-strung neuroticism in his Allenesque take on heterosexual relationships, and you can't help but wish he had cast himself as a lead in Fefef.

But before I decimate the theatrics and the writing, let's confront the plot. Two childhood buddies -- one circumcised, the other not

Wet Hot American Summer First Day Of Camp: new Meet The Staff video

  • Den of Geek
Meet the staff of Camp Firewood in this new orientation video featuring Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks and more...

The eight-episode prequel series to David Wain and Michael Showalter's Wet Hot American Summer is almost upon us. The whole shebang arrives on Netflix on July the 31st, which means there's still time to catch up on the original film beforehand, also available on the streaming service, if you've yet to see it.

Back in 2001, assembling a cast including the likes of Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper and Elizabeth Banks wasn't quite the coup that it is now. What makes First Day Of Camp particularly impressive is that all of the above and more (the wonderful David Hyde-Pierce, Janeane Garofalo, Molly Shannon...) signed straight back up for the prequel. It's testament to the fondness with which the original film and its creators are viewed with by its cast.

Film Review: ‘This Lovely S—ty Life’

Film Review: ‘This Lovely S—ty Life’
After turning in one of her less successful fictive seriocomedies in “Alles Inklusive,” aka “The Whole Shebang,” Doris Doerrie is on terra more firma with “This Lovely S—ty Life,” a documentary whose protagonists have little time for the kind of neurotic navel gazing that preoccupied those in the previous pic. This portrait of female mariachi musicians in Mexico City doesn’t probe too deep, but offers a satisfying mix of personality and culture with a moderate feminist slant. While continuing its festival run, it should pick up some offshore sales, particularly among artscasters.

Plaza Garibaldi is ground zero for the myriad mariachi bands of Mexico City, and has remained so for decades despite an escalation of crime in the area. They’re used to dealing with drunks, drug users and hecklers there, though it’s particularly irksome for women, who often have to deal with the chauvinism of male

Out of the Furnace review: brothers in yawns

A pungent reek of testosterone stinks up this high-toned apologetic for vigilantism and revenge. Still: great performances! I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): the trailer looked like the film was treading well-worn ground

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

First scene: Woody Harrelson rape-ily shoves a hot dog down a woman’s throat, and then beats up a guy who points out that, hey, buddy, not cool. Woody (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) is the villain, so this is “okay,” but that’s the sort of movie you’re in for here. The pungent reek of testosterone off screen is deafening. Oh, is that a mixed metaphor? Kinda like the title of the film: out of the furnace… and, what? into the frying pan?

Writer (with Brad Ingelsby) and director Scott Cooper follows up his first film, Crazy Heart, with a similarly familiar tale of manly dysfunction,

Jennifer Garner opening male strip club on Fox

The popularity of Magic Mike has given rise not only to talk of a sequel, plans for a Broadway version, and even bars where the stripping is just part of a way classier "theme," it’s also given some the idea that the “male stripper story” is a genre begging to have others grind away on it until it’s left spent and chafed. Waiting in line just behind that Chippendales biopic is Jennifer Garner, who’s tossing the crumpled singles of her production company behind the Fox pilot The Whole Shebang, an hourlong drama from Butter writer Jason Micallef ...

Philip Defranco Proposed To His Girlfriend In Front Of 600 Fans

Philip Defranco's Defranco DoesArizona event was billed as a Q&A session where hundreds of his fans could bombard him and his SourceFed pals with all the questions on their minds. In reality, Defranco used the Tempe Center For the Arts Theater as the venue for a much more important conversation. Towards the end of the event, Defranco used a plant in the audience to help him propose to his girlfriend, Lindsay Doty. Doty, who goes by LinzLoves on YouTube, initially joined Defranco and SourceFed hosts Steve Zaragoza and Meg Turney on stage. Eventually, a woman in the crowd asked her a particularly personal question: "Are you going to get married?"
