“Newtown,” which debuts this weekend at Sundance, has what may be the most ambitious score of any movie in the festival: 17 different composers contributed music, all because they were moved by the subject matter.
“Newtown” deals with the aftermath of the December 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, where 20 first-graders and six staffers were killed in the second-deadliest mass shooting by a gunman in U.S. history.
Composer Fil Eisler (“Revenge,” “Empire”), Czech-born but now an American citizen with a 4-year-old daughter, remembers a conversation with producer Maria Cuomo Cole in which he expressed his outrage at yet another massacre. (“I’m scared of her growing up in this country,” he said.) Then Cole told him she was working on a film about Sandy Hook.
“The floor just fell out from under me,” Eisler recalls. “I didn’t ever want to see that film, much less score it.” But the more he thought about it, »

Supergirl fans, you might want to savor the fun, quippy side of Winn Schott while it lasts. Because in tonight’s episode (CBS, 8/7c), that lightheartedness is nowhere to be found.
Though Jeremy Jordan‘s lovesick It whiz has mostly been utilized for a well-placed one-liner, the character will enter much darker territory when he is reunited with his estranged father, Winslow Schott, Sr. aka DC Comics’ The Toyman (played by Revenge alum Henry Czerny).

Fox’s Second Chance has not a care in the world.
Series star Rob Kazinsky (True Blood), for example, slips carelessly between his character’s American enunciation and his own British accent. Crimes of the week are wrapped up with the haphazardness of toddlers tossing their Fisher-Price people into a toy box after mommy says it’s dinner time.

That one "F" word in particular? Any of those could be right, but there's another thing many of Tarantino's movies have in common: a big, meaty role for an actor who's maybe in need of a career boost. In the case of the Tarantino movie currently in theaters, The Hateful Eight, the role is that of Daisy Domergue, a wily, foul-mouthed criminal played by Jennifer Jason Leigh. Now Leigh hasn't been without work. »
