Exclusive Carter & June Clip: Spencer Deals With It

To paraphrase the great band Devo, when a problem comes along, you must deal with it. And that's exactly what Spencer (Timothy Omundson) does in our exclusive clip from Carter & June, heading to theaters on May 18, 2018. As you might imagine, based on that title alone, the film revolves around Carter and June, but it's clear Omundson will also play a key role. Nicholas Kalikow directed. The synopsis describes Carter & June thusly: "Inventive blackmail schemes, flamboyant gangsters, power politics, greed, evangelicals and sex collide in this action packed dark comedy heist." The clip, which you can watch below, certainly gives us a good taste of what's...

Natalie Zea on Directing ‘The Detour,’ David Duchovny’s Advice and Female Filmmaker Friday

Natalie Zea on Directing ‘The Detour,’ David Duchovny’s Advice and Female Filmmaker Friday
Natalie Zea has been a working actress for almost two and half decades, starring on such dramas as “Passions,” “Dirty Sexy Money” and “Justified,” as well as comedies including “White Famous” and “The Detour.” But for the first time, she has sat down in the director’s chair to helm an episode of television.

“Actresses, if they’re smart, are hyper-aware of their having an expiration date, and I want to stay in the business,” Zea tells Variety. “And the only real way to guarantee-ish that is to get behind the camera. We’re not all Helen Mirren.”

It had been in her “back of mind” for a few years to think about directing, so when she booked the role of Robin Parker in “The Detour” three years ago, she saw an opportunity to make it a reality. “I didn’t ask for anything in the first two seasons,” she says, planning to ask

All of 2017’s Best Music, Ranked

All of 2017’s Best Music, Ranked
Damn. it was a good year for music.

It didn’t always feel that way, though. While Kendrick Lamar’s aforementioned fourth studio album -- which hit like a meteor on the Friday before the rapper’s monster set to close out Coachella -- much of 2017 was defined by growers rather than out of the gate jams and much of the summer passed without a bona fide “Song of” said season. (Barely. More on that in a second.)

Really, it's only on looking back at the cavalcade of "Best Of" lists that footnote every year that you realize how full of noteworthy sounds 2017 in particular was. And now, with the nearly ubiquitous acceptance of streaming as the primary method of song consumption, not only is the roster of artists who find both large audiences and critical acclaim more diverse and democratized than ever, but the entire idea of a publication-determined "Best Music of the Year" feels almost silly.

Laverne Cox, Jill Soloway, & Alexandra Billings Talk Trans Representation on TV

Laverne Cox in CBS’ “Doubt

With the Blowhard in Chief’s recent push to ban trans individuals from serving in the military, there is even more of a need for nuanced trans characters in pop culture. This was the topic of conversation when “Orange Is the New Black” actress Laverne Cox, “Transparent” creator Jill Soloway, “Transparent” actress Alexandra Billings, and “Danger and Eggs” creator Shadi Petosky came together for a recent Television Critics Association panel. Sponsored by GLAAD, the event’s main focus was transgender representation on TV.

“There’s still a lot of misconceptions of who trans people are,” Cox commented, per Variety. “There’s so many representations of us being victimized or predators, and those kinds of ideas of who trans people are perpetuate the way people think of us and influence the way policies are made. So it’s so crucial that we have representation that is diverse, that represents the full humanity of trans people.”

Cox added that seeing Candis Cayne on the ABC drama “Dirty Sexy Money” marked the first time she saw a positive portrayal of a trans woman on screen. “[That] changed my life, that changed my career, that made me think it was possible to have be an out trans woman as an actor.”

As Cox’s story suggests, it’s essential that trans stories be told and trans actors be hired to tell them — a sentiment shared in ScreenCrush’s recent “Why Hollywood Needs Trans Actors” video.

The appearance of three trans women on “The Phil Donahue Show” marked a turning point for Billings. “There were these three beautiful, sparkly, shiny human beings, witty and intelligent and talking about all aspects of their life,” Billings recalled. “And as the interview went on I found out they were all trans women, and I said out loud, ‘Oh, there I am.’ I recognized immediately that they were part of my tribe.”

Soloway and Petosky shared instances of negative trans representation in pop culture, where trans or nonbinary characters were painted as sick or abnormal. Petosky pointed to Buffalo Bill from “Silence of the Lambs.” “It’s bloody and horrible but the worst thing is this guy that wants to be a woman. I remember sinking into my seat at my desk,” she said.

For her part, Soloway talked about the long-running “Saturday Night Live” character Pat. The “Pat” sketches revolve around the titular androgynous character and the other characters’ attempts to figure out whether Pat was a man or a woman. “The idea of pointing at a person and laughing because they were nonbinary? We didn’t realize it at the time, but in looking back — what an awful piece of anti-trans propaganda that was handed out for years,” Soloway stated.

Things have definitely improved since the heyday of Buffalo Bill and Pat, but Cox — who made history as the first trans woman cast a broadcast series regular on the CBS procedural “Doubt” — emphasized that the fight is far from over.

“We have to do better because we have to so many stories that are still not being told,” the Emmy nominee said. “Transition stories are not in and of themselves problematic but often that’s all people focus on. The before and after narrative reinforces that we are not who we say we are.”

Laverne Cox, Jill Soloway, & Alexandra Billings Talk Trans Representation on TV was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Jill Soloway, Laverne Cox Talk Transgender Trends on TV: ‘We Have to Do Better’

Jill Soloway, Laverne Cox Talk Transgender Trends on TV: ‘We Have to Do Better’
“We are all marginalized and ostracized from society.”

So said “Transparent” actor Alexandra Billings during a panel sponsored by GLAAD at the Television Critics Assn. press tour, examining transgender trends on TV today. Other panelists included “Orange Is the New Black” star Laverne Cox, “Transparent” creator Jill Soloway, and “Danger and Eggs” creator Shadi Petosky.

The emphasis there was on how trans visibility, a relatively new discussion for most Americans, has historical deep roots — roots that are distinct from the lesbian, gay, and bisexual experience. “The T was added at the end — an afterthought,” Billings said.

Cox added, “Our lives are often treated as if they don’t have value,” but “it is a political reality, not necessarily a human one.”

“Watching the discussion happen around mainstream media in the last few weeks, there’s still a lot of misconceptions of who trans people are,” Cox said. “There’s so many representations of us being victimized or
