David Wenham on why he changed his mind about TV's 'Wake in Fright'

1 June 2017 5:31 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

David Wenham on set of his directorial feature debut, 'Ellipsis'..

In the second part of his interview with If, David Wenham chats about his recent roles in 'Wake in Fright', 'In Like Flynn' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales'...

When David Wenham was offered the role of the police sergeant Jock Crawford in the miniseries Wake in Fright he initially recoiled at the idea.

As a passionate admirer of Canadian director Ted Kotcheff.s seminal 1971 movie based on the Kenneth Cook novel he thought the idea of a remake was ridiculous.

Wenham had watched the restored movie twice, at the Sydney Film Festival and at the Chauvel cinema, rating it as a visceral experience and an incredible piece of filmmaking.

However he changed his mind after reading Stephen M. Irwin.s script for the Network Ten two-parter directed by Kriv Stenders. »

Inhumans: ABC's Complete Cast Of Royal Family Is Here! We Will Get Lockjaw!

8 March 2017 7:00 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

We have learned the full character cast thanks to a report from THR, including the fact that yes, Lockjaw (the teleporting dog) will be a player in the show.

The Inhumans were introduced by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby (of course his hand was in this) in 1965, but recently they have come on strong in the comics as a major adversary to the X-Men, and have been featured in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but not the same Inhumans that will be explored in the upcoming ABC TV show. Instead, this show will focus on the Royal Family of the Inhumans, who have considerably greater powers than the ones that we have seen on S.H.I.E.L.D.

A very cool thing about this show is that the first two episodes will be shot and featured in IMAX theaters over Labor Day weekend, which is a great promotional technique. Roel Reine will direct these first two hours, »

Claudia Karvan on playing a 40-something with authority in 'Newton's Law'

14 February 2017 2:11 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Claudia Karvan in 'Newton's Law'..

How did you get involved in Newton.s Law?.

I think they originally wrote it for Miriam Margolyes. She was originally devised as an old, fat Jewish woman (laughs). I've never worked with them before so I don't know how I came on their radar. I was a big admirer of the film Mallboy.that Fiona [Eagger] produced a long time ago. It's one of my favourite Australian films. It really packs a punch..

I've never heard of it.

It's really worth checking out. I loved it. And then, obviously, [I.m] a big fan of SeaChange and totally appreciate the extraordinary phenomena that is Miss Fisher, and what successful producers they are. They just approached me, I read it, we had a few conversations and then it was all happening. I really wanted to play a character who was emotionally intelligent and had authority and »

Little Lunch: the mockumentary series for kids – and one of Australia’s best shows

1 February 2017 8:19 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Set in a primary school playground, the cross-generational series proves how much can be done with just 15 minutes

Since becoming a parent, I’ve been amazed by how repetitive children’s television can be. After a short amount of time The Wiggles start to feel like housemates, and I’ve considered taking out a restraining order on Giggle and Hoot – they’re mostly made up of bright colours and noise designed to distract, which underestimates the intelligence of little ones. I know a show is working when it holds up on the 98th viewing, and it’s a relief to find them – not just for my own sanity, but because something that is clever enough to entertain an adult is particularly nourishing for a kid.

There’s a great tradition of Australian kids television that doesn’t dumb things down, from The Ferals to Ship to Shore and Round the Twist. »
