Office Space Almost Starred Matt Damon and Ben Affleck

Office Space Almost Starred Matt Damon and Ben Affleck
Mike Judge reveals that the studio originally wanted Matt Damon and Ben Affleck to star in Office Space. It's hard to think of anybody else playing the role of Peter better than Ron Livingston. The actor nailed the part, but Damon originally wanted the role and even sat down with Judge for a meeting. Under pressure from the studio, Judge and the rest of the crew were initially looking for some big actors to fill up the comedy, which is something that Judge was not comfortable with.

When Office Space was green lit by the studio, they wanted Mike Judge to cast Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. However, the writer/director did not want the role of Peter going to someone with "star energy." Casting director Nancy Klopper noted that this was "post-Good Will Hunting. They weren't exactly unknown," when talking about Affleck and Damon. Judge relented and went

‘Office Space’ Almost Starred Matt Damon and Ben Affleck
If you’ve seen “Office Space,” you’re already well aware that it doesn’t star Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. This being the 20th anniversary of Mike Judge’s cult classic, the workplace comedy has gotten the oral-history treatment courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, which includes the revelation that the longtime friends and collaborators were nearly cast as the lead. Either Affleck or Damon would have played the role that eventually went to Ron Livingston.

“Fox wanted us to pursue Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. This was post-‘Good Will Hunting,’” casting director Nancy Klopper told EW. “They weren’t exactly unknown.” Livingston had momentum of his own, having recently been in “Swingers,” and Judge was impressed by his audition: “I met with Matt, who was really nice and liked the script,” he said. “But I’d found Peter.” Judge also thought it was important that Peter, the main character,

7 Things We Learned from the ‘Office Space’ Oral History

7 Things We Learned from the ‘Office Space’ Oral History
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the cult favorite comedy Office Space. The movie bombed spectacularly at the box office with just under $11 million made in its entire domestic run. That was barely enough to cover the film’s budget. But against all odds, the movie found a big audience on home video and […]

Did You Get The Memo? ‘Office Space’ Is Turning 20!

Anybody who owns a red Swingline stapler or has fantasized about destroying office equipment knows the sweetly sublime pleasures of a little movie called Office Space. Made for just $10 million, the low-budget Mike Judge movie was initially a box-office flop, grossing just over $12 million in its theatrical run. But then, something magical happened: [...]

Every DC Comics Movie Ranked From Worst to Best, Including ‘Aquaman’

  • The Wrap
The DC Comics universe hasn’t flooded the big screen the way Marvel ones have, but the DC brand has been hitting the big screen longer in the era of color, starting with the 1966 Adam WestBatman.” We ranked all those modern flicks, from “Batman: The Movie” to “Wonder Woman,” “Justice League” and “Aquaman.”

33. “Jonah Hex” (2010)

Despite the efforts of Josh Brolin and Michael Fassbender, this is one of the worst comic book movies of the modern era.

32. “Superman IV: The Quest for Peace” (1987)

Christopher Reeve is by far the best Superman. But “Superman IV” is a bomb in every sense — partly because of its heavy-handedness about bombs. Nuclear bombs. The film finds Superman trying to eliminate the world’s nuclear threat, but his best intentions run afoul of a silly, badly dated villain named Nuclear Man.

31. “Supergirl” (1984)

We had a female-superhero movie in 1984, and it was pure cheese. But hey at least they tried.

Ron Livingston On Why the ‘Game of Thrones’ Red Wedding Is TV’s Best Episode Ever — Turn It On Podcast

Ron Livingston On Why the ‘Game of Thrones’ Red Wedding Is TV’s Best Episode Ever — Turn It On Podcast
Ron Livingston didn’t plan it this way, but the actor pulled off a rare feat this fall: He can be seen in a cable, broadcast, and streaming series all at the same time. Livingston, perhaps still best known as the star of Mike Judge’s cult hit comedy “Office Space,” stars in the At&T Audience Network comedy “Loudermilk,” plus plays a pivotal role on ABC’s new drama “A Million Little Things.” And he can also be seen on an upcoming episode (“Bright and High Circle”) of Amazon Prime Video’s new anthology series from Matthew Weiner, “The Romanoffs.”

“I’ve got to diversify,” he quipped. “You’ve got to make sure you’re on something somewhere. I’ve just tried to do stuff that’s good. Definitely there’s more opportunity than ever.”

The changing TV landscape has allowed stars like Livingston the chance to juggle multiple projects.

Blu-ray Review – Sorry to Bother You (2018)

Sorry to Bother You, 2018.

Directed by Boots Riley.

Starring Lakeith Stanfield, David Cross, Tessa Thompson, Jermaine Fowler, Omari Hardwick, Patton Oswalt, Terry Crews, Danny Glover, Steven Yeun, Armie Hammer, and Kate Berlant.

Synopsis:

Sorry to Bother You starts as a skewering of modern-day race relations and ends up going in directions that are impossible to predict. It’s a trip through magical realism that’s worth taking, and it’s a marvelous directorial debut by Boots Riley. This Blu-ray edition is a bit scant on bonus features, but Riley’s interview and commentary track are both worth your time.

I love it when a movie takes a couple left turns and becomes something I could have never expected as act one unspooled. Such was the case with Boots Riley’s directorial debut, Sorry to Bother You, which starts as an Office Space-esque dig at the modern working world, with

Ron Livingston Has A Million Little Reasons You Should Watch Loudermilk

  • TVfanatic
There's no way to get around it.

I've been a fan of Ron Livingston's since his early movie career. Swingers and Office Space set a tone for which he has become very well known, and his role as Sam Loudermilk allows him to play directly to his strengths.

Loudermilk Season 2 premiered on October 16, and we had a chance to talk with Livingston about what to expect from the season going forward and what it's been like standing in his shoes that have been carrying him around a very successful 2018 television season.

Enjoy excerpts from our interview below, which has been slightly modified for content.

You're having a pretty good year, aren't you?

Yeah, it's been a road wave of Td gigs, it seems.

Oh, and movies, too.

Yeah, I don't know what it is. I think sometimes you have busy years and you have lean years. And this one,

Adult Radio Was Once the Butt of Jokes. Now It’s the Hottest Radio Format

On a warm, hazy Monday in August, tucked away in a nondescript office park in Milford, Connecticut, Keith Dakin, Kevin Begley and Allan Lamberti were deciding the sound of Star 99.9, a radio station that plays what’s known as “Hot Adult Contemporary.”

Each week, Dakin and his team examine what’s being streamed and Shazam’d in their town, neighboring towns and the whole country; they also consult a custom-made panel of “nine Hot AC stations, all owned by different companies, five alternative stations that lean female, and five Top 40 stations that are successful.

Hollywood’s New Leaders 2018: Television
Each year Variety’s New Leaders feature profiles the most prominent up-and-comers in the entertainment business. To determine this year’s worthies, Variety looked across disciplines, from television, digital, music and film, to law and finance, as well as content creators. They were proposed by their bosses and peers who have worked with them and seen their rise. All are age 40 or under, and Variety has measured them by the progress of their career trajectories: do they take calculated risks? How fast have they risen in their companies? Are they innovative and employ solutions to problems that are creative? As part of the salute to the qualities that keep the town humming, filmmaker/producer Travis Knight, who founded Laika Studios and is finishing up the anticipated “Bumblebee” for Paramount, as well as Variety‘s 10 Assistants to Watch along with the New Leaders will be recognized Oct. 17, at the Jeremy Hotel rooftop in West Hollywood.

New to Streaming: ‘Sorry to Bother You,’ ‘Apostle,’ ’22 July,’ ‘The Kindergarten Teacher,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’re highlighting the noteworthy titles that have recently hit platforms. Check out this week’s selections below and an archive of past round-ups here.

22 July (Paul Greengrass))

Paul Greengrass, director of United 93 and Bloody Sunday, returns to the realm of the “too soon?” with 22 July, a clichéd and rather problematic film–with a frankly reprehensible first act–that dramatizes the attacks in Oslo on that awful day in 2011 when 77 people, mainly at the Utøya island youth camp, were murdered by a nationalist gunman named Anders Behring Breivik. – Rory O. (full review)

Where to Stream: Netflix

Apostle (Gareth Evans))

Coming off of the success of The Raid: Redemption and its sequel, The Raid 2, the anticipated path for Welsh director Gareth Evans may not have been a horror film by way of 70s cult thrillers.

2018 BFI London Film Festival Review – Sorry to Bother You

Sorry to Bother You, 2018.

Directed by Boots Riley.

Starring Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Jermaine Fowler, Omari Hardwick, Terry Crews, Patton Oswalt, David Cross, Danny Glover, Steven Yeun and Armie Hammer.

Synopsis:

In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a universe of greed.

Rapper-activist Boots Riley makes a startlingly ambitious if occasionally uneven debut with this absurdist social satire, which mates Office Space with Dear White People to dizzying effect.

Shortly after starting his new job at a soulless telemarketing company, a black man named Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) learns that he can quickly climb the corporate ladder by affecting a “white voice” – in his case provided by the whiter-than-white David Cross – which makes him more amenable to the mostly white people he’s cold-calling.

Though Cassius’ success quickly starts to threaten his relationship with activist girlfriend Detroit

Ron Livingston on Tackling Sobriety and Suicide on TV

Ron Livingston on Tackling Sobriety and Suicide on TV
Ron Livingston is having a moment.

The actor known for such films as “Office Space,” and TV series as “Sex and the City,” “Boardwalk Empire,” and “Search Party,” is starring in three high-profile small-screen projects this fall: “A Million Little Things,” which bows Sept. 26 on ABC; the second season of “Loudermilk,” which hits Oct. 16 on At&T Audience Network; and “The Romanoffs” episode titled “Bright and High Circle,” which streams Nov. 2 on Amazon.

“The way that I pick stuff, it’s not very cerebral. It’s not like, ‘I would like to play a senator who …’ It’s more like, I read it, I get a gut feeling from it, and if it affects me — and honestly my favorite thing is if it kind of scares the hell out of me a little bit, then I pick that,” Livingston tells Variety.

But he admits that there is some connective tissue between

Five Animated Characters You Didn’t Know Gary Cole Voiced

If you have to wonder who Gary Cole is then you might not have watched Office Space or Talledega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. This guy has been in so many films and guest-starred on so many TV shows at this point that it’s hard to not remember having seen him doing something hilarious or worth watching. His manner can change depending on the role he’s playing and there are times when he’s truly the worst character on the project since he seems to play such parts with great skill.

Tiff Review: ‘Helmet Heads’ Features Broken Lizard-Esque Deadpan Humor in Central America

If Broken Lizard were Central American and deadpan, they might make something akin to Ernesto Villalobos’ Helmet Heads. Think an extremely droll Super Troopers meets Office Space starring a sextet of bike messengers desperately trying to break the monotony of their stagnant lives while also staying afloat once their employer closes shop without warning. At the center lies Mancha (Arturo Pardo), a listless sleepwalker of a man allergic to change in any form. Of all these men left unemployed, he’s the sole member lucky enough to be able to use it as an opportunity to follow his girlfriend Clara (Daniela Mora) as she embarks on a new career. But he loves his motorcycle too much. He loves a life at bare minimum and risks losing her too.

So while the rest move on, Mancha struggles for answers. Clara is ready to leave him, his bike is gone, and he
