David Simon’s ‘Show Me a Hero’: How Director Paul Haggis Controlled Chaos

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

HBO limited series “Show Me a Hero” is noisy. Cacophony reigns in crowded city council meetings packed with yelling onlookers and jostling media microphones. It’s hard to figure out just what is going on. Oscar Isaac as beleaguered Nick Wasicsko, the youngest mayor in America, pounds his gavel to no avail. Adapted from Lisa Belkin’s 1999 book by David Simon and his “The Wire” collaborator Bill Zorzi, “Show Me a Hero” digs into the unsexy ’80s true story about the pitched battle between the haves and have-nots in Yonkers, New York over court-ordered public housing. When HBO finally greenlit the series, it was with the knowledge that this story is as resonant as ever.

While the WGA-nominated writing is brilliant, a pivotal member of this team of storytellers earning rave reviews is DGA-nominated Paul Haggis, who directed all six episodes. Haggis said he eagerly leapt at his first television »

22 June 2016 6:28 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Since its inception, Game of Thrones has had deep ties to real-life musicians. Kristian "Hodor" Nairn has a lengthy career as a guitarist and DJ.

And Alfie Allen, who plays everyone's favorite humbled eunuch Theon Greyjoy, is the brother of pop star Lily Allen.

But the show has gone beyond that, casting actual recording artists as regular cast members or occasional superfan guests for the benefit of eagle-eyed music fans. »
