Asian American TV Actors Expose the Difficulty of Landing Parts – With or Without an Accent

11 October 2017 12:20 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Daniel Dae Kim made headlines this year for leaving “Hawaii Five-0” over issues of pay inequality, and later, for replacing actor Ed Skrein as a Japanese-American character in the big-screen remake of “Hellboy.” Both instances involved how Asian Americans are still underrepresented in the entertainment industry, and it’s an issue that requires more discussion in order to foster understanding of how the so-called “model minority” continues to be marginalized.

It wasn’t that long ago that very few actors of Asian descent were even considered Hollywood stars. In an interview with IndieWire, Kim reflected on the few Asian actors who were his role models growing up.

“The only two that I can think of were Bruce Lee and George Takei. They were the only two,” he said. “I was a big ‘Star Trek’ fan when I was a kid, and I would watch Mister Sulu all the time. Bruce Lee, »

Keira Knightley lands new spy movie

9 October 2017 12:07 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Oct 10, 2017

Keira Knightley will return to the spy world, set to star in an indie drama from the company behind Manchester By The Sea.

Keira Knightly has run the blockbuster cinematic gamut over the years, including spy movies, with her co-starring role, opposite Benedict Cumberbatch, in the 2014 biopic The Imitation Game and, in that same year, opposite Chris Pine in the attempted Tom Clancy movie franchise restart Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. Now, she’s set to bank another spy movie, this time from the indie company known for the acclaimed drama, Manchester By The Sea.

K Period Media, the independent production company primarily behind Manchester By The Sea, has locked down Knightley to star in an untitled spy drama. The mystery movie will be based on a script by Camilla Blackett, a screenwriter primarily known from the realm of television with U.S. sitcom work on ABC’s »

Keira Knightley to Topline Spy Drama Written by Camilla Blackett

9 October 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Knightley in “Seeking a Friend at the End of the World”: Focus Features

Keira Knightley is joining the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Blake Lively, and Daisy Ridley, all of whom are playing spies in upcoming films. Variety reports that the two-time Oscar nominee has signed on to topline and produce an untitled indie spy movie from K Period Media that will almost certainly see her using her brains and brawn to take out enemies.

The plot of the project isn’t known and a director hasn’t been announced yet. TV scribe Camilla Blackett, whose credits include “Fresh Off the Boat,” “New Girl,” and “The Newsroom,” penned the script.

Producers joining Knightley include Bristol Automotive’s Nora Grossman (“The Imitation Game”) and K Period Media’s Kimberly Steward (“Manchester by the Sea”).

“In the workplace, the only issues I’ve had with competitiveness has been from males, and it’s males who don’t like younger women, and often have issues with women who are senior to them,” Blackett has said. “That’s the most mind-boggling thing: having this level of entitlement where they feel they can express that. Like, this is your boss! Whether she has a vagina has nothing to do with it. I’ve had nothing but really supportive women around me, work-wise,” she emphasized. “Working with women, you just get so much shit done. There’s a lack of ego and posturing. All the filibustering you get from other writers in the writers’ room, it’s always men.”

Knightley received Oscar nods for her roles in “The Imitation Game” and “Pride & Prejudice.” Among her upcoming projects is “Colette,” a biopic based on the life of French writer Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (who used the pen name Colette). In 1948, Colette was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature. But she didn’t get recognition for her writing initially — her first husband, Willy Gauthier-Villars, took all the credit. Rumor has it that Gauthier-Villars, a well-known publisher and author, locked his wife up and forced her to write novels under his name.

Keira Knightley to Topline Spy Drama Written by Camilla Blackett was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

The 20 Best Performances Not Nominated for an Emmy in the 21st Century, From Eva Green to Carrie Coon

12 September 2017 8:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The Emmys have been getting better in recent years, with winners like Tatiana Maslany and Rami Malek being welcome and deserved surprises, but the Academy’s frustrating history of repeat nominees and winners has made it hard for deserving performances and series to make their mark. No awards show is ever going to be perfect, especially the Emmys when you consider just how many options there are to choose from each year, but it’s never not heartbreaking when you realize the likes of Kristen Bell, Carrie Coon, Michael K. Williams and more all went unnoticed for iconic TV performances.

With the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards airing this Sunday, IndieWire looks back at the 20 best performances that went unrecognized by the Television Academy over the last 17 years. The group is made up of actors both comedic and dramatic, in roles ranging from lead to supporting, but they’re all united in their greatness. »

Tiff Review: ‘Molly’s Game’ is Undeniably Enjoyable and Hugely Forgettable

10 September 2017 5:10 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Molly’s Game is slick, flashy, highly entertaining, and hugely forgettable. Considering that it’s the directorial debut of Aaron Sorkin, that may come as a surprise. Sorkin is, of course, the much-imitated writer of The West Wing and The Newsroom. But perhaps his scripts for Moneyball and Steve Jobs are more relevant here. Both are based on true stories… just like Molly’s Game. Both are centered around tough, forceful protagonist… just like Molly’s Game. But when looking at this trio, Molly’s Game is far and away the lightweight.

That’s not entirely a bad thing. The story of underground poker titan Molly Bloom should be told with a light touch. Bloom’s tale is almost too full of highs and lows to be believed. Yet it’s all true. Bloom really was one of the nation’s finest young skiers, before a devastating injury ruined her »

‘Molly’s Game’ Review: Jessica Chastain Shines in Sorkin’s Directorial Debut | Tiff 2017

9 September 2017 2:29 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Right up front let me level with you: I’m a big Aaron Sorkin fan. He’s one of my favorite writers of all time, The West Wing is my favorite TV show of all time, and The Social Network is one of my favorite movies of all time. So if anyone’s biased towards Sorkin’s next project, that’s me (also me: guy who liked The Newsroom). That being said, much as I admire Sorkin’s singular style, I’ll admit I was a bit hesitant about Sorkin making his directorial debut. He’s been candid about the … »

9 September 2017 6:13 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For his entire career, Aaron Sorkin has delighted in following the journey of ambitious, visionary, and sometimes deeply flawed men. From the fractured geniuses of “The Social Network” and “Steve Jobs,” to the data driven obsession of the Oakland A’s general manager in “Moneyball,” to the news anchor eager to shake up the system in “The Newsroom,” the screenwriter has crafted singular portraits of those who eagerly want not just success, but the power to implement their unorthodox ideas, and the space to reshape the conventions around them.
