Colette Burson on Showing a Different Side of the South in “Permanent”

Permanent”: Magnolia Pictures

Colette Burson co-created and executive produced HBO’s Golden Globe-nominated series “Hung.” She helmed several episodes of the show. Her other directing credits include short “Little Black Boot” and feature “Coming Soon.”

Permanent” hits theaters, On Demand, Amazon Video, and iTunes today, December 15.

W&H: Describe your film for us in your own words.

Cb: The tagline sums it up nicely, “Hairstyles are temporary. Family is forever.” On a deeper level, “Permanent” is a coming-of-age story set in the South in 1982. The whole family is coming of age — the mother, the father, and the daughter. They’re each figuring out who they are, and the metaphor of hair, which is both universal yet personal, influences everyone’s identity, particularly at that moment in time.

It is also the story of being outsiders, which runs through my work from “Hung” and “The Riches” to this film. In

Permanent Trailer: Rainn Wilson Is Having a Bad Hair Day

Permanent Trailer: Rainn Wilson Is Having a Bad Hair Day
Magnolia Pictures has released the first trailer and poster for Permanent. This indie comedy is set in the early 80's in small town Virginia and "Perms" are all the rage. 13-year Aurelie dreams about getting one to finally fit in at her new school but when her clueless parents bring her to a hairdressing academy to save a few bucks, things go incredibly wrong. This is the story about adolescence, socially awkward family members and bad hair.

Bad hair day? Nope! More like a bad hair life. Set in 1982 in small town Virginia, Permanent centers around 13-year-old Aurelie Dickson (Kira McLean) and her parents, Jeanne and Jim (Patricia Arquette and Rainn Wilson). In this hilariously awkward and unique telling full of wit and wisdom of a hairstyle gone wrong, the Dicksons are struggling through major life changes together all the while trying desperately to emerge intact on the other side.

Eddie Izzard interview: Victoria And Abdul, acting, Robin Williams and more

Ben Mortimer Sep 13, 2017

Eddie Izzard on his acting career, Victoria & Abdul, Clint Eastwood, Robin Williams, directing films and more...

Eddie Izzard is back on the big screen this weekend in Victoria & Abdul. It's the new film from director Stephen Frears, a sort-of follow-up to Mrs Brown that sees Dame Judi Dench playing Queen Victoria in a story that's recently been discovered about her later life. We got a chance to chat with Eddie Izzard about his role in the movie, and potentially directing...

Could you clear something up for me, as I swear I heard a hint of it in the film - did you give Bertie a slight German accent?

Maybe mentally. He did have a tapped ‘r’, because his first years there was German in it, but it was only the hint of it, I didn’t overtly push it.

Legends of the Fall: 12 TV Actors We’re Happy to See Back on the Small Screen

Legends of the Fall: 12 TV Actors We’re Happy to See Back on the Small Screen
Pamela Adlon, “Better Things

Compared to Adlon’s “Louie” character, the actress’ new role as single mom Sam is just as blunt and borderline provocative but far less intimidating. In fact, she’s kind of adorable in a painfully put-upon but unapologetic way. The semi-autobiographical story has us cringing alongside every embarrassing audition, parental freakout and unfair setback, and yet, Sam’s integrity and backhanded optimism is apparent in that she doesn’t give up, but instead copes (with vodka, but copes nonetheless). Sam is the promise of “Louie’s” Pamela fully realized.

Margo Martindale Talks Emmy Wins for ‘Justified,’ ‘The Americans’

Margo Martindale Talks Emmy Wins for ‘Justified,’ ‘The Americans’
It’s a simple equation: FX + Margo Martindale = Emmys. The veteran character actress won her first Emmy at the tender age of 60 for a scene-stealing supporting turn on the second season of “Justified.” Four years later she followed up with a guest star win for “The Americans” after two prior nominations. She returned to “Americans” this year and recurred for over half of the final season of CBS’ “The Good Wife.” Next up she’s filming the first season of Amazon’s “Sneaky Pete,” reuniting her with “Justified” showrunner [and “Americans” exec producer] Graham Yost.

Had you ever been to the Emmys before you won?

Never. I was a complete virgin at 60. It made it beyond exciting, just coming off that fabulous part, it was such an incredible ride. Everything was kind of just perfect — I don’t know it’ll ever be like that again — because it was my 60th year, and I

American Odyssey Review – TV NBC

Much as the horror genre is deeply rooted in the evolving culture that creates it, NBC‘s latest “action-drama,” American Odyssey, builds itself from the conspiracy fears that are now equally laughed off and assumed to be obviously true.

Sgt. Odelle Ballard (Anna Friel, “Pushing Daisies”) is part of a group that stumbles upon an Al Qaeda’s top commander, but she quickly discovers intel that suggests an American corporation is funding the group. A private military company comes to clean up, and Odelle’s company is killed to cover things up. She escapes, but now she’s on the run, and a long way from home, and doesn’t have anyone she can trust.

Meanwhile, back at home, former U.S. Attorney Peter Decker (Peter Facinelli) is in the middle of a merger with the same company that apparently funded the jihadists, and he starts to put the pieces

NBC’s Odyssey Retitled American Odyssey On Eve Of Debut

NBC has tweaked the title of its upcoming drama Odyssey less than a month before its premiere, renaming the show American Odyssey.

Though the network declined to comment on what spurred the name change, sources close to the production say the new title better reflects the arduous journey of protagonist Odelle (Anna Friel), an American soldier beset by enemies on all sides as she attempts to return to her friends and family in New York.

Of course, the more cynical answer is that NBC execs weren’t living under a rock in January, when American Sniper stormed the box office and racked up Oscar nominations. Renaming the show American Odyssey may make the series more palatable to the same right-leaning audiences that sent Sniper soaring.

The transformation in NBC’s advertising campaign, tied in with the name-change, is quite startling. Whereas Friel’s protagonist was before on her knees, with her hands bound,
