There's something amusing about sitting down to talk to Irish actor Jason O'Mara about playing George Washington, arguably the greatest American in our nation's history, in the latest take on America's founding in the History Channel's Sons of Liberty, out now on Blu-Ray.

Cinelinx had the opportunity to speak with Charlie Clouser, formerly of Nine Inch Nails, about his score for the new TV series Wayward Pines. Join us as we get an exclusive in-depth look at the techniques and inspiration behind the music for this hit new show.
Charlie Clouser is a multi-instrumentalist composer, musician, producer, programmer and remix artist who has worked with some of the seminal recording artists of the last twenty years. Charlie came into prominence as a member of Nine Inch Nails from 1994-2000. Before joining the band as keyboardist/programmer, he’d already built a following with his extreme synth work and remixes for Prong, Marilyn Manson, White Zombie, and others.
