Why Tony Hale stopped watching 'Game of Thrones' after the very first episode

24 June 2016 5:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tony Hale stopped watching Game of Thrones after the very first episode, and I support his reason: he doesn't like seeing little kids get thrown out of windows. Appearing on a segment of The Wrap's "Wrapid Fire" series, the Veep star opened up about his aversion to the HBO fantasy series when host Stuart Brazell asked him what his favorite character was: "I don't watch Game of Thrones, ’cause they pushed a kid out the window in the first episode, and it freaked me out." Hale is of course talking about Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright), the then-10-year-old wall-climber who was unfortunate enough to stumble upon Jaime and Cersei's incestuous lovemaking session at Winterfell. Wonder if Tony knows he survived? In any event, the Arrested Development star is far from the only celeb to have opted out of the blockbuster series. Want names? Here's our roundup of GoT-ignorant »

Creator John Logan and Showtime’s David Nevins on the Decision to End ‘Penny Dreadful’

20 June 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This post contains spoilers about the season three finale of “Penny Dreadful.”

Two words appeared on the screen at the end of “The Blessed Dark,” the season three finale of the Victorian horror series “Penny Dreadful”: “The End.” As it turns out, the season finale of the Showtime drama (which was recapped here) was also its series finale. Vanessa Ives died in the last episode of season three, and the show will not return.

Variety spoke to Showtime president David Nevins and “Penny Dreadful” creator John Logan about why they made the decision to end the show after making a grand total of 27 episodes.

“That’s where television is now,” Nevins said. “We don’t have to make seven seasons for the sake of making seven seasons. Some shows are built for that, and some shows aren’t.”

Emmy Awards: 18 Underappreciated Shows That Deserve a Vote

16 June 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Emmy Awards voting has never been more complicated, with more series than ever vying for those coveted few slots in 2016. And while the usual suspects will naturally get attention, it’s those hidden gems that tend to get buried in the stacks of “For Your Consideration” mailers. To cut through the clutter, Variety’s TV team has selected a few favorites that we think deserve your vote.

Baskets,” FX

Starring Zach Galifianakis as “non-identical” twins Chip and Dale, Louie Anderson as their Costco obsessed mother, Christine, and 47-year-old acting novice Martha Kelly as the romantic lead, Martha, FX’s “Baskets” is not like any other comedy, or show, on television. The funny-sad serialized storytelling of showrunner Jonathan Krisel takes all of these characters on unexpected journeys full of emotional discoveries, pratfalls, bittersweet self-reflection and fart jokes. It’s completely silly, completely serious and completely wonderful. — Geoff Berkshire

‘Veep’s’ Tony Hale Says Show’s Producers Give Actors Freedom to ‘Play With the Material’ During Reddit Ama

15 June 2016 12:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Heyyy, fake Uncle Jack. Tony Hale — whom you may remember from such television comedies as “Veep” and “Arrested Development” — took to Reddit for an Ask Me Anything session today, with the lion’s share of questions revolving around his two best-known characters. Asked whether he and “Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus improvise any of their many scenes together, for instance, he responded that “They give us 2 weeks of rehearsal before we shoot and they allow us to play with the material. They work very hard on the scripts but allow us that freedom.”

Read More: Review: ‘Veep’ Predicts the Apocalypse With a Stunning Twist

That amount of rehearsal is “very rare,” for TV, he said in a follow-up. “Typically you show up and shoot.” That may have been the case for his one-off “Community” appearance, which Hale called “Great. I love Joel McHale and the Russo Brothers directed the episode who directed the pilot of ‘Arrested Development.'” (The Russo Brothers also directed “Captain America: Civil War,” which unfortunately doesn’t likewise feature Hale.)

Other questions and answers were less serious, like how the producers of “Veep” have managed to shoot around the hook hand his “Arrested Development” character acquired after losing his actual hand to a seal (“They’ve used CGI”) or what Hale’s favorite book is (“My daughter’s 4th grade essay…she killed it.”) Read the full Ama on Reddit.

Clip and images from season 3 of All Hail King Julien

15 June 2016 12:46 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With season three of DreamWorks Animation’s All Hail King Julien set to premiere on Netflix this Friday (June 17th), we’ve got a batch of images from the show, along with a clip that sees Princess Julienne (Angelica Huston) and Prince Barty (John Michael Higgins), King Julien’s dramatic and needy parents, arriving for unannounced for a royal visit. Check them out here…

This season, alongside Danny Jacobs’ Emmy®-winning comedic work as King Julien, All Hail King Julien has attracted accomplished talent with A-level guest stars including Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Angelica Huston (The Addams Family, The Royal Tenenbaums), Henry Winkler (Happy Days, Arrested Development), and John Michael Higgins (Pitch Perfect, Yes Man).

You might be familiar with the Emmy®-winning show, but did you know that All Hail King Julien isn’t just a tropical adventure for children? In fact, the show has become a mecca of pop culture phenomena and not-so-subtle adult humor, bringing the jungle of Madagascar closer to modern society than you might think. With skewering parallels to our addictive consumption of coffee and ridiculous “high fashion” trends, biting representations of class and beauty standards, and emotional characters that challenge stereotypical gender roles, All Hail King Julien produces witty observations that are meant for modern-day thinkers of all ages.

All Hail King Julien season 3 lands on Netflix on Friday, June 17th.

Why R-Rated Comedies Have More Fun and More Highlights From Greenwich’s Comedy of Business Panel

13 June 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

How do you make money being funny? Last weekend, the Greenwich International Film Festival’s Comedy Of Business Panel featured a selection of industry luminaries to talk about that exact topic. Actor Will Arnett (“Flaked”) joined producers Richard Brener (“Wedding Crashers”), Stuart Cornfeld (“Tropic Thunder”) and Chris Bender (“American Pie”) to talk about the process behind making a truly great comedy.

Between jokes about Twitter “correctness” and losing the script for “The Hangover” (which would go on to gross around $50 million), the seasoned assembly got down to the heart of what comedic films are today. Here are the three of their most interesting insights they had to offer.

Let the Douche Be the Fall Guy

“All of us are constantly being painted further and further into a corner,” said Arnett on the topic of political correctness in feature comedies.

In a time when Twitter backlash can ruin a career over an off color joke, the industry leaders had quite a bit to say about finding where to draw the line. When asked about Ben Stiller’s infamous “Tropic Thunder,” Cornfeld admitted it would be difficult to produce today, especially when it comes to the movie’s “full retard” sequence, of which Cornfeld said, “I can’t believe you would tell a joke like that now.” Richard Brener added, “or then.”

He later added, “Don’t aim low and miss. If there’s no joke behind the joke and it’s just mean spirited you’re going to fall on your face.” The panel revealed that it was this very reason that so many comedies feature an unlikable character saying horrendous things, like ‘American Pie’s douche extraordinaire Stiffler. If the audience knows the joke is coming from a bad person, they are less likely to take offense.

“I play a lot of dumb characters on purpose so I can say a lot of shitty things,” Arnett joked.

R-Rated Movies Have More Fun

With difficulty to create comedy that would be inoffensive to anyone, the speakers agreed that R-rated comedy was the place to find freedom. Nearly everyone on the panel had taken part in making a movie that was acclaimed as bringing R-ratings back into style. From box office successes like the “Wedding Crashers” and “Zoolander” to the more recent giant “The Hangover,” the popularity of R is cyclical every few years.

Speaking from his own experience with “American Pie,” Chris Bender noted that, “R is so much more freeing, both in, like, being more truthful and real in language.” PG-13 may be more attractive to studios that want as many people to see a movie as possible, but language constraints can often stunt comedy. Brener, who works for the studio New Line Cinema confirmed, “You only get one non-sexual ‘fuck.’”

Make A Comedy For the Joy and the Pain

When you boil it down, comedies are perhaps the most difficult (and wonderful) movies to make.

For Arnett, “it’s always about the experience of it. I know that for me, as a performer, if you’re going to have a good experience and feel like you’re a part of something you are really into, the other person is going to raise their game. So, you want to do that because that’s kind of the recipe for success.” The panel agreed, if it looks like the audience was having fun making it, they probably were.

However, as a producer, that is not always the case. For Cornfeld, the Tenacious D movie was the best experience, but never yielded returns like he thought. Whereas on the set of “Zoolander,” his money problems with the studio went as far as debt collectors leaving him threatening messages at his home.

But it does feel good to look back and laugh. Brenner and Bender certainly do when they remember how they almost made “The Hangover.” After workshopping the script, and even providing the key plot point of the groom disappearing (something that really happened to a friend), the script went to another studio. They both admitted it would not be the same wonderful movie if they had made it.

In fact, it’s Brenner’s dad’s favorite movie. “He brings it up every time I see him,” he laughed at the lowest point of his career.

Brian Grazer Rides Peak TV Wave, Builds New Empire at Imagine Television

6 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Nobody is loving the Peak TV moment more than Brian Grazer.

For a producer of boundless energy and curiosity, the spike in demand for distinctive, high-end series is a dream come true. Grazer’s Imagine Television has been invigorated by the breadth of material it is fielding for Fox (“24: Legacy,” “Shots Fired” and “Empire”) and National Geographic Channel (“Mars” and “Genius”).

And there is more to come. The recent $100 million investment by Raine Group in Imagine Entertainment, which Grazer heads with Ron Howard, has given the company greater flexibility to pursue TV and film projects on a bigger scale. Imagine TV has been based at 20th Century Fox TV since 2000, but it also produces projects outside of 20th TV’s aegis.

Grazer, an Oscar winner for 2001’s “A Beautiful Mind,” likens the creative environment in TV today to a bygone era of the film biz.

Review: 'Veep' just did one of the all-time great TV kissing scenes

5 June 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's Veep coming up just as soon as I quote the late Lionel Richie... There's a famous moment at the end of the first season of Cheers that half the TV business has been chasing in the 30-plus years since it first aired. It's the moment where the line gets obliterated between Sam Malone and Diane Chambers' utter disdain for one another and their animal attraction, and one moment they're threatening physical violence, and the next they are passionately making out. If you're the kind of person who reads this blog, odds are you've seen at least the most iconic part of the scene before, but here it is, anyway: That show, and that moment, bottled the idea of Unresolved Sexual Tension, which later series would try variations on. Sometimes, the will-they-or-won't-they couple would have mutual loathing for each other like Sam and Diane (David and Maddie »

Sorry folks, it looks like we’ll never get a ‘Freaks and Geeks’ revival series [Exclusive]

5 June 2016 4:44 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Freaks and Geeks actor Martin Starr confirms that a reunion series is unlikely.

Earlier this week we caught up with American actor Martin Starr, who can currently be seen playing Gilfoyle in HBO’s Silicon Valley. However, much like James FrancoSeth Rogen and Jason Segal, Starr started his career in the brilliant Us teen series Freaks and Geeks. The show, set in the 1980’s, followed the teenage drama of Linda Cardellini‘s Lindsay Weir, a mathlete who decides to rebel and starts hanging out with a group of ‘burnouts’.

Sadly the show only ran for one season but struck a chord with a generation, and along with shows like Firefly, often appears in lists of ‘shows cancelled too soon’ or ‘shows that we want back’. Given that platforms such as Netflix seem to be open to the idea of reviving beloved series’ (they are currently bringing Gilmore Girls back »
