Ana Gasteyer on Moving From the Groundlings Troupe to ‘Saturday Night Live’

After getting her start training with the Los Angeles improv-sketch group the Groundlings in the ’90s, Ana Gasteyer booked guest roles on quintessential sitcoms of the decade, including “Seinfeld” (in the infamous 1995 episode “The Soup Nazi”), “Mad About You” and “Just Shoot Me!” In 1996, she joined the cast of “Saturday Night Live,” creating iconic characters that included low-key NPR host Margaret Jo McCullen and impressions of personalities like Martha Stewart and Joan Rivers. She has continued to show off her comedy chops on such programs as “3rd Rock From the Sun,” “Suburgatory” and “The Goldbergs,” and is now starring in the TBS sitcom “People of Earth” as well as appearing opposite Maria Bamford in the offbeat Netflix comedy “Lady Dynamite.”

Gasteyer was first mentioned in Variety on Sept. 5, 1996, for joining the “SNL” cast.

Critics Pick the TV Shows That Get Mental Health Right — IndieWire Survey

Critics Pick the TV Shows That Get Mental Health Right — IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best TV show — former or current — that handles mental illness well?

Joyce Eng (@joyceeng61), TVGuide.com

Bojack Horseman,” especially Season 4, is almost peerless when it comes to a raw, honest portrayal of mental health. His depression and anxiety aren’t deployed as plot devices like we’ve seen plenty of times elsewhere; they’re just part of him and none of it is rubbed in your face. He’s allowed to be, break down, self-destruct, and the show never offers quick fixes or easy answers. “Stupid Piece of Sh*t” is a brutal depiction, even if you don’t suffer from depression or anxiety,

Mary Elizabeth Winstead to Star in Eva Vives’ Feature Directorial Debut

Winstead in “Fargo”: FX Networks

Hot off the heels of her turn as con artist-with-a-heart-of-gold Nikki Swango on FX’s “Fargo,” Mary Elizabeth Winstead has booked her next role — and it’s in a woman-helmed film. Winstead is set to star in Eva Vives’ feature directorial debut, the semi-autobiographical “All About Nina.” The “Smashed” actress will portray the titular character, a professionally successful but personally dissatisfied stand-up comedian. Deadline broke the story.

“To escape a difficult ex and to prepare for a prospectively life-changing audition, Nina flees to Los Angeles where she meets Rafe (Common, ‘Selma’),” the source summarizes, “who challenges almost every preconception she has — including those around her own deeply troubled past.”

“All About Nina’s” supporting cast includes Kate Del Castillo (“Ingobernable”), Clea DuVall (“Veep”), Melonie Diaz (“Fruitvale Station”), Camryn Manheim (“Person of Interest”), Mindy Sterling (“Black-ish”), Angelique Cabral (“Band Aid”), Beau Bridges (“Masters of Sex”), Chace Crawford (“Gossip Girl”), and Jay Mohr (“Suburgatory”).

Deadline doesn’t specify, but it’s likely Vives will pen as well as direct the dark comedy, which originated at the 2016 Sundance Institute’s Screenwriters and Directors Labs. Vives will also produce with Diablo Entertainment’s Natalie Qasabian, Eric B. Fleischman, and Sean Tabibian. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Joshua Astrachan are exec producing.

Vives has previously directed the shorts “Me, Myself, & I,” “She Pedals Fast (For a Girl),” and “Join the Club.” She worked as a producer, editor, and casting director on the Sundance and Cannes awarding-winning short “Five Feet High and Rising.”

Winstead was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for playing an alcoholic trying to stay sober in “Smashed.” Her recent credits include “Mercy Street,” “BrainDead,” and “10 Cloverfield Lane.” She received a Saturn Award for her work in the latter.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead to Star in Eva Vives’ Feature Directorial Debut was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Now, a steady stream of his eccentric cult members break into the apartment to kill themselves in the tub in honor of their leader. Unable to afford another move, they soon find themselves inexplicably drawn into the cult, all the while navigating the inquiries of a beleaguered Lapd detective (Harmon) obsessed with selling a screenplay based on his own life.”

Exclusive: Kevin Conroy explains why Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is the best Batman movie

Last week Flickering Myth’s Amon Warmann was lucky enough to chat with legendary Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy about the latest instalment in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies line Batman and Harley Quinn. During the discussion, they also spoke about their favourite Batman movie – 1993’s Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.

Amon Warmann: My favourite Batman movie – animated or otherwise – is Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. What are your memories of working on that?

Kevin Conroy: I agree with you – I think that is the best Batman movie, live action or animated. You get the whole genesis of the Batman story in that one film. And then you’ve got the drama, falling in love with Andrea Beaumont, wanting to have a normal life, pleading with his parents grave to release him from the vow and then realising he’s doomed to avenge their deaths. He’s trapped in his fate.

Exclusive: Kevin Conroy on the Batman stories he’d like to see adapted as animated movies

Kevin Conroy has been lending his voice to the Dark Knight for 25 years now, appearing in everything from Batman: The Animated Series to the acclaimed Arkham video games and a host of animated features, including last year’s Batman: The Killing Joke and this month’s Batman and Harley Quinn, which reunites him with Batman: Tas co-creator Bruce Timm.

Flickering Myth’s Amon Warmann was lucky enough to speak to Kevin this past week to discuss Batman and Harley Quinn, during which he revealed that there are still several iconic Batman stories he’d like to tick off his bucket list.

You’ve been voicing the character for so long and we’ve seen him in so many different situations. Is there anything you still want to explore with the character?

There’s stories I still want to do. Hush would be cool. Death in the Family would be cool.

Kevin Conroy says Ben Affleck is the best Batman

Voice actor Kevin Conroy is considered by many to be the definitive Dark Knight through his work on Batman: The Animated Series and numerous DC animated series and movies. But who does he consider to be the best Batman? Well, in an interview with Comic Book Resources to promote the new animated feature Batman and Harley Quinn, Conroy shared his thoughts on the various live action incarnations of the Caped Crusader.

“Are there other Batmen that I don’t do? I haven’t heard of one,” joked Conroy. “Yeah, I see them. You know, I thought it was weird when Warner Bros. didn’t give the franchise to one actor when the first started doing the films. You just assumed they were going to cast a Batman and he was going to carry the whole franchise. But then when I saw the different ones — Michael Keaton and Val Kilmer, George Clooney,

Batman And Harley Quinn animated movie pressing ahead

Kirsten Howard Apr 20, 2017

The animated Batman And Harley Quinn film is taking shape, and now has a director attached...

While we twiddle our thumbs and wait for the double punch of the Dceu's live-action Wonder Woman and Justice League movies, Warner Bros and DC Entertainment continue to skip along in their own little (arguably better) animated universe. 

See related  Line Of Duty series 4 episode 5 review Line Of Duty series 4, and the clues hiding in series 1 Line Of Duty: creator Jed Mercurio interview

They've just announced that they're moving forward with their Batman And Harley Quinn film in earnest by tapping director Sam Lie to take charge of the project. He's previously worked on Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, 2016's unfortunate misstep The Killing Joke, and Justice League Vs Teen Titans under their watchful eye, so it looks like it'll be a fairly smooth process all in all.
