‘Empire’ Co-Creator Danny Strong Signs Overall Deal With 20th Century Fox TV

16 June 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Empire” co-creator Danny Strong has just closed a multi-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television, the studio announced Thursday. Under the pact, he will develop, write, direct and supervise new projects for the studio, in addition to continuing as executive producer and frequent director and writer on “Empire,” which he developed with Lee Daniels.

“Our relationship with Danny goes all the way back to his days as an actor on ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer,'” commented Dana Walden and Gary Newman, CEOs of 20th Century Fox TV and Fox Television Group. “Little did we know then that he would one day go on to co-create one of the biggest hits in the history of our studio and network, let alone the No. 1 show on broadcast television. He’s a spectacular talent who can literally do it all, and everyone — from actors and writers, to the crew and executives — loves working with him. This is a big win for our company and we couldn’t be happier personally that Danny will continue to write, direct, supervise and develop series for us for years to come.”

“Working with Dana and Gary and their entire team has been one of the best experiences of my career. Without their guidance and creative instincts, ‘Empire’ never would have made it on the air, let alone become the success that it has. I’m so honored to be in business with a company that continues to raise the bar with excellent and original programming and am looking forward to many more years with such a fantastic and talented group of people,” Strong said in a statement.

Strong is wrapping his feature film directorial debut “Rebel in the Rye,” starring Nicholas Hoult, Kevin Spacey, Hope Davis, Victor Garber and Sarah Paulson for Black Label Media, about the early years of the author J.D. Salinger and the events that led him to write his masterpiece, “The Catcher in the Rye.” He has also written “Guys and Dolls” for 21st Century Fox, with Michael Grandage directing.

Strong previously wrote the screenplay for Daniels’ “The Butler,” along with co-writing “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts I and II.” He penned and produced HBO filmsRecount” and “Game Change,” and will next be seen on screen in Netflix’s “Gilmore Girls” revival.

Emmy Contender Jay Roach on How His 1964 Civil Rights Drama ‘All the Way’ Is ‘About Now’

15 June 2016 5:50 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

A version of this story first appeared in the print edition of TheWrap Magazine’s Miniseries/Movies Emmy Issue. When Jay Roach decided to make an HBO movie from Robert Schenkkan‘s Broadway play “All the Way,” he wasn’t exactly thinking about how the events of President Lyndon Baines Johnson’s first year in office would reflect on today’s political climate. But at some point, the director of the “Austin Powers” and “Meet the Parents” movies and of the HBO political films “Recount” and “Game Change” realized that Johnson’s struggle to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964 spoke powerfully to voter suppression, »

‘All the Way’: Bryan Cranston reveals the Jackie Kennedy letter that made Lbj click for him

21 May 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Accidental president. Vietnam. Civil Rights Act. Bully. This is Lyndon B. Johnson’s legacy, or at least how he’s often remembered. New HBO film All the Way seeks to illuminate many sides of the man who stepped into the highest office in the land after John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Bryan Cranston plays Lbj in the film, premiering on HBO tonight, following his Tony-winning turn as the president in All the Way on Broadway. After he’d already done extensive research and study of the play’s text (itself thoroughly researched by playwright Robert Schenkkan), Cranston went on a second visit to the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum in Austin, TX, and that’s where the person of Lbj really clicked for the actor. “The character is always outside of you until you hopefully allow it to seep in. Then it becomes a part of you,” Cranston told HitFix. »

Bryan Cranston Takes Lbj ‘All the Way’: His Journey From Stage to HBO

18 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Four minutes into “All the Way,” the actor Bryan Cranston, playing Lyndon B. Johnson, walks into the Oval Office. The camera cuts back and forth between the 36th president’s point of view and a tight shot of his face as he slowly moves through the room, which is filled with the belongings of the recently dead John F. Kennedy. It’s Johnson’s first time entering the room as president. The scene is silent. For a full minute, it’s just Cranston, a camera, and some music. It’s a powerful moment, one that wasn’t in the Broadway version of “All the Way,” which also starred Cranston, and was, like the HBO original movie premiering May 21, written by Robert Schenkkan.

“You’d have a hard time making that work onstage,” says Schenkkan. “It’s a film moment. That’s what I looked to create.”

The Oval Office scene notwithstanding, »

William Schallert, Former SAG President and ‘Patty Duke Show’ Star, Dies at 93

9 May 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Former SAG president William Schallert, best known as TV dad Martin Lane on “The Patty Duke Show,” died Sunday in Pacific Palisades, Calif. He was 93. His son Edwin confirmed his death.

His most memorable role was as beloved TV dad Martin Lane on “The Patty Duke Show” (1963-66). The performance still resonates: TV Guide slotted him at No. 39 on its list of Greatest TV Dads of All Time in 2004.

Schallert would be familiar to many for his memorable appearance on the famous “The Trouble With Tribbles” episode of the original “Star Trek” series: He played Nilz Baris, the agriculture undersecretary who is outraged to discover that the furry, endlessly reproducing aliens have devoured all the grain.

Schallert served as SAG president from 1979-81 and oversaw a three-month strike in 1980 that centered around rates and residuals for pay TV, videocassettes and videodiscs and included a successful boycott of the year’s primetime Emmy Awards. »

The 2016 Oscar Nominees Ranked, From Worst to Best

21 January 2016 11:46 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: The 11 Must-See Movies Completely Rejected By the Oscars 41. "Trumbo" (Nomination: Best Actor) "Austin Powers" and "Meet the Parents" mastermind Jay Roach showed he could handle true-story drama in HBO films like "Game Change" and "Recount," but all the relative subtlety he was able to mine in those projects was lost completely in "Trumbo." Taking the larger-than-life screenwriter Dalton Trumbo and exaggerating him even further, the film struggles to surmount to anything more than a mere caricature, and Bryan Cranston goes overboard with scene chewing so over the top that he nullifies any sort of complexities in the title character. Heightened and fluffy, it would be an insult to even say the film is better suited for television. This one is better left unseen. 40. "Racing Extinction" (Nomination: Best Original Song) The last time Louie Psihoyos used the documentary genre to shine a spotlight on »
