'Penny Dreadful’s’ Reeve Carney discusses playing Oscar Wilde's Dorian Gray

16 October 2014 10:58 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Reeve Carney talks about his experiences as "Penny Dreadful’s" Dorian Gray Just like Dorian Gray himself, playing the ageless hedonist hasn’t gotten old for "Penny Dreadful" actor Reeve Carney. After a three-year stint on Broadway as Marvel’s webbed wonder in "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark," the 31-year-old actor/singer/songwriter segued into the role of the legendary sybarite whose portrait grows old for him from Oscar Wilde’s 1891 novel "The Picture of Dorian Gray" in Showtime’s hit Victorian horror mashup series. As part of the ensemble of lurid eccentrics in the John Logan-penned show, Carney’s Gray brushes up against (literally and figuratively) other gaslight luminaries and alters their lives with his avowed self-indulgence but also finds himself questioning his own rules of eternal existence as a result. With the debut season of the series arriving on Blu-Ray earlier this week, Carney spoke exclusively »

DVD Review: Penny Dreadful, Season One

11 October 2014 9:05 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

In a time full of excellent Television programming, it would be quite easy to get engulfed in the flames of Hannibal, True Detective and various other top notch shows, and accidentally fail to catch another show completely filled to the brim with excellent writing, acting and some of the most gorgeous set pieces around. Luckily, thanks to technology, DVD and Bluray allows us, the silly souls who missed out on the greatness that was season one of the John Logan/Sam Mendes Showtime show, Penny Dreadful, the chance to rectify that mistake, and hell yes, missing what was in my opinion one of the impressive debut seasons of a new TV shows, was just that: one large mistake.

Right now, the idea of “reinventing” classic, beloved characters is in somewhat of a boom or craze, and for every well written fresh new take on a character we love (i.e-Hannibal »

Event Report: Penny Dreadful's Reeve Carney Talks Playing Dorian Gray, the 'Picture,' His Co-Stars, Bono, and Lots More

14 June 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

We recently joined 60 "Penny Dreadful" fans at an event that offered food, drink, music, and a screening of the latest episode complete with special guest Reeve Carney, who portrays the iconic Dorian Gray on the show.

The Bryant Park Hotel in Midtown Manhattan was the setting for the reception, held in honor of the winners of a Facebook contest. The announcement that "Penny Dreadful" will return for a second season was met with much fan happiness. More creatures! More of the occult!

As we have seen on both network and cable television, the horror genre has established a stronghold, and it's great that Showtime is claiming monster status along with the rest.

Our event report follows; just beware if you're not totally caught up that it does contain a few spoilers.

‘Penny Dreadful’ Renewed For Second Season

5 June 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Penny Dreadful hasn’t even finished finished its first season run yet, but Showtime has announced that the horror series will be returning to our screens for a second season. When the show does return in 2015, it will also be longer with ten episodes instead of eight.

Penny Dreadful is a televised concept of the cheap 19th century British fiction publications, and in the show features public domain characters from British and Irish fiction including Dorian Gray (from Oscar Wilde’s The Picture Of Dorian Gray) and Victor Frankenstein and his monster (from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein). The show currently stars Josh Hartnett, Eva Green, Reeve Carney, Harry Treadaway, Billie Piper and Rory Kinnear.

In a statement released by the Showtime, president David Nevins talked about how picking up Penny Dreadful was one of the “easiest decisions” he had made:

Is “Penny Dreadful” the Summer’s Gayest Show?

3 June 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Before we get into it, let me answer my own question: Yes. Yes it is.

(Major spoilers follow. For earlier recappage, check out our piece on the first two episodes.)

When word was first announced of Showtime’s period “psychosexual horror” series Penny Dreadful, no one was sure what to expect. The best guess was that it would be a handsomely-shot mashup of a handful of big-name genre icons… with copious close-ups of boobies. But I don’t think anyone expected the full-on monster mash that we have seen in the season’s first four episodes: Dr. Frankenstein is canoodling with Ludwig Van Helsing in an attempt to stop Dracula; Frankenstein’s Monster is playing Phantom of the Opera at the Grand Guignol Theatre, and the Wolf Man just banged Dorian Gray.

Yes, you read that right: at the end of last Sunday’s episode, Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) – an »

Sky Atlantic has debuted a new Penny Dreadful promo exclusively on Digital Spy.

The animated short sees writer and historian Matthew Sweet paint a picture of Dorian Gray - the immoral immortal who first appeared in Oscar Wilde's 1890 novel.

Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray is one of several literary classics to have inspired the new TV series, along with Bram Stoker's Dracula and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

Penny Dreadful stars Josh Hartnett, Eva Green and Timothy Dalton as mismatched adventurers who combat dark forces in Victorian London.

Reeve Carney plays Gray in the series, which airs on Tuesdays at 9pm on Sky Atlantic.

Penny Dreadful: Dressing the Monsters of Victorian London

19 May 2014 10:55 PM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

No Spoilers

Real and mythological, figurative and literal; monsters of all kinds abound in Sky Atlantic’s new period horror series Penny Dreadful. We might expect a skulking figure in a top hat and frock coat to be scary, though who would have thought a bustle and redingote could be so terrifying? Well, step forward Eva Green as enigmatic Vanessa Ives. Not hero nor villain, but a dead eyed clairvoyant who definitely shouldn’t be invited to dinner parties.

Eva Green as Vanessa Ives. Green’s costumes are tinged with arachnid symbolism, such as webby lace and orb-like patterns on her frocks. One of the show’s promo posters (Here) has Green in a scorpion edged dress, but this may have been added digitally.

Penny Dreadful is set in 1891, although is more a literary parallel universe than true reflection of the era. Some of the characters featured are written for »

Penny Dreadful Review: “Séance” (Season 1, Episode 2)

18 May 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sitting here writing this, I’m still working to pick my jaw off the floor after the ending of Penny Dreadful‘s second episode, “Séance.” I was impressed by the show’s pilot, which worked quickly to establish a creepy Victorian atmosphere and introduce an intriguing crop of characters. However, after watching “”Séance,” I can safely say that all the Penny Dreadful team got to do in the pilot was thinly veiled table-setting. Now, it appears that they’re ready to have some real fun.

And man if “Séance” isn’t the most no-holds-barred fun I’ve had with a Showtime program since the second season finale of Dexter (Remember? When we realized that Lila was completely flipping insane?). The episode starts off on a high note, with a poor Victorian woman becoming the next victim of the animalistic serial killer rampaging through the show’s alt-history Victorian London. That »

The Original Mr. Gray

9 May 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

What is the value of art in society, and what are the artist’s moral imperatives? How must artists reconcile their predisposition toward sensory indulgences with modern mores, particularly if they gravitate towards a lifestyle that is largely stigmatized? Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray examined all of these questions. It was a seminal work of Gothic horror literature, and, although he was a highly accomplished playwright and critic, this was the only novel of Wilde’s that was ever published. 

Wilde's book tells the story of an artist named Basil Hallward, who finds something of a muse in the young man Dorian Gray. It is during one of his visits to Basil's studio that Dorian meets the ultra-hedonistic Lord Henry Wotton, who quickly "befriends" Dorian and persuades him that sensory indulgences and worldly pleasures are what life is truly about. Basil finishes his portrait of Dorian, »

Q&A: Designer of ‘Penny Dreadful’s’ Hauntingly Beautiful Costumes

8 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Dark and demented, Showtime’s new horror fest “Penny Dreadful” seems to molds monsters out of a seemingly normal world where the enlightened few are aware that something is not quite right — a fitting mix for the Victorian England-set drama that follows a moxie band of ghoul hunters that includes Timothy Dalton’s wealthy African explorer Malcolm, Eva Green’s strong-willed Vanessa, Josh Hartnett’s quick-drawing American renegade Ethan and, because why not, Harry Treadaway as a young Victor Frankenstein.

Created by John Logan (“Skyfall,” “Jersey Boys”), who executive produces with Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris, the show’s name is derived from 19th century British pulp fictions that were targeted at youth who, if they were alive today, would probably be avid Ryan Murphy and Quentin Tarantino fans.

Developing a fantasy world with a foot in history can create multiple challenges for the crew, especially when it comes to »
