Exclusive: Ruth Negga Reveals the Surprising Punk Rock Inspiration for Her Badass Role on 'Preacher'

Exclusive: Ruth Negga Reveals the Surprising Punk Rock Inspiration for Her Badass Role on 'Preacher'
In AMC's gothic action dramedy Preacher, Ruth Negga stars as the hard-drinking, tough-as-nails Tulip O'Hare, and despite the delicate nature of the flower she shares her name with, Tulip proves time and again she's not someone to be messed with.

The actress recently sat down with Et during a press junket promoting the second season of the acclaimed series, where Negga opened up about the surprising real-life icons who inspired her performance -- and revealed how her character is a far cry from how Tulip appeared in the comic book series Preacher is based on.

In the comics, Tulip is a skinny, blonde white woman who is getting her life back on track after kicking her drug habit. In the TV series, Tulip bites a man's ear off while fighting him in runaway car careening through a field and then kills him with an ear of corn. Then, she builds a bazooka out of tin cans and

'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' Turns 15: See What Hogwarts' Most Beloved Students Are Up to Now!

"You're a wizard, Harry!"

It's hard to believe it's been 15 years since we first heard Robbie Coltrane deliver that line in character as Rubeus Hagrid in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, the first of what would turn into eight total fantasy films based on the beloved "Harry Potter" book series by J.K. Rowling.

Nov. 16, 2001 marked the day the world was introduced to Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, Emma Watson as Hermione Granger and Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley. Potterheads quickly fell in love with their unbreakable bond on-screen, which was noticeably just as strong when the cameras weren't rolling.

In celebration of the franchise's 15th anniversary, Et's taking you back in time to the trio's first moments together at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, to see just how far these talented stars have come since their Gryffindor days.

The Hollywood community is in mourning once again, as another actor, one who had an unfortunate role in one of showbusiness' most mysterious tragedies, passed away. Michael Massee, the actor who accidentally shot and killed up and coming star Brandon Lee on the set of The Crow, has passed away at the age of 61.

The actor worked with Michael Massee on the French TV series Interventions which premiered in 2014. Michael Massee played "Funboy" in The Crow, which was only his second movie role ever, and he reportedly never watched the film because of the tragedy on set that resulted in the death of Brandon Lee.

‘Vinyl 1×10: Alibi’ Review

“Whatever happens tonight, I remain confused.”

Vinyl closes its first season by cutting back and forth between Richie and Zak across a crowded room. It’s meant to remind us that the two men share a few too many secrets, and that the burden of guilt on Richie’s shoulders is far from lifted. It’s also almost completely flat, just like the preceding sequence in which Richie tells his employees and musicians to go nuts and spray-paint the label’s offices. The chaos he unleashes mirrors what he experienced in the pilot at the New York Dolls concert, but here there’s no raw-nerved depiction of the connection between music and listener to land the hullabaloo.

Nor is the stuff those close-ups on Cannavale and Romano are trying to remind us of all that interesting. The mob plot has potential, and in moments like Zak’s shit-smeared shoe abandoned

Martha Thomases: Vex & Comics & Rock & Roll

  • Comicmix
Every Monday my Facebook feed is filled with people kvetching about Vinyl, the new HBO series created by Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winters. Every criticism I see is valid (the pace is slow, the characters and the situations in which they find themselves are unbelievable), but I still kind of like it.

If you haven’t watched, you should know that Vinyl is about a record company struggling through the changes in music and culture in the early mid-1970s. I moved to New York full time a few years later, so perhaps some of the reason I like it is that it reminds me of my lost youth.

Bobby Cannavale plays Richie Finestra, the head of the company, a drug addict with no moral code (is that redundant?) who uses people in his pursuit of money and more drugs. We are supposed to believe that his love

Relive the Gritty Glory of Cbgb in New Rs Mini-Doc About Seventies NYC

Relive the Gritty Glory of Cbgb in New Rs Mini-Doc About Seventies NYC
Nile Rodgers, rock journalist Legs McNeil and more recall the birth of punk and the gritty, gross glory of Cbgb in the first installment of 1973: Shaping the Culture, a new video series from Rolling Stone, presented by HBO's new show Vinyl.

Hilly Kristal opened Cbgb & Omfug — "Country, Bluegrass, Blues and Other Music for Undernourished Gormandizers," though McNeil notes Kristal frequently changed the meaning of the "U" — in 1973 in the heart of the Bowery, at that time one of New York's nastiest neighborhood. The location, however, was the perfect place

The golden years of romance and rebels: TV taps into turmoil of 1970s New York

It was the decade of Cbgb and disco, bankruptcy and blackout. Now TV dramas are drawing on the Big Apple’s most creative and dangerous decade

When Vinyl, HBO’s much-hyped new drama about the music industry in 1970s New York, starts next Sunday, it will be the first of a host of shows celebrating that decade in the Big Apple. In the summer, Netflix will air Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down, which looks at the birth of hip-hop in the South Bronx during the same period, while David Simon, creator of The Wire, will return to HBO with The Deuce, a drama about the porn industry in New York during the 70s and 80s, starring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

And it’s not just television that thinks New York in the 70s is where it’s at. One of the most eagerly awaited novels of last year

Flashback: Watch Gilda Radner Hilariously Spoof Patti Smith on 'SNL'

Flashback: Watch Gilda Radner Hilariously Spoof Patti Smith on 'SNL'
Last week, the producers of Robert Mapplethorpe biopic Mapplethorpe revealed that Girls actress Zosia Mamet will portray the late photographer's close friend Patti Smith in the film. She will not be the first actress to play the punk singer onscreen, though, as actress Mickey Sumner played Smith in the 2013 film Cbgb – and Saturday Night Live star Gilda Radner hilariously spoofed her in 1979, a few months before the Patti Smith Group put out Wave.

In the lengthy sketch, Radner played tank-top-wearing, bouffant-armpitted punk yelper "Candy Slice" who was performing at a

Belgica | 2016 Sundance Film Festival Review

Bar None: Van Groeningen Returns to Musical Inclinations for Vibrant Sibling Portrait

Belgian auteur Felix Van Groeningen, the front runner of the Belgian New Wave, returns with his fifth feature, Belgica, a portrait of two estranged brothers reuniting to open a successful night club, an experience forcing them to reexamine both their shortcomings and sometimes toxic enabling of each other’s worst tendencies. The film follows a career high for Van Groeningen, who scored an international breakout with 2013’s The Broken Circle Breakdown, another musically inclined drama which netted him an Oscar nod for Best Foreign Language Film. Though his latest still includes unpredictable emotional highs and lows within a familiar set of family and friends, his latest is more sobering by comparison. With a killer soundtrack this is a well-proportioned character piece for its two leads, requiring a bit of patience for the film’s rather lofty running time

Alan Rickman, 'Die Hard' and 'Harry Potter' Actor, Dead at 69

Alan Rickman, 'Die Hard' and 'Harry Potter' Actor, Dead at 69
Alan Rickman, the British actor who portrayed likable villains in films like Die Hard and the Harry Potter series, has passed away. "The actor and director Alan Rickman has died from cancer at the age of 69. He was surrounded by family and friends," his family wrote in a statement confirming the actor's death, the BBC reports.

Rickman's acting career began on the stage with a stint in the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) as well as roles on numerous BBC productions. In 1987, a RSC production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses came to Broadway,

R.I.P. Alan Rickman

2016 has gotten off to a brutal start for great British entertainers. As the world gets over the death of David Bowie a few days ago, it has been set in shock again as acting legend Alan Rickman has died in London.

Rickman had been suffering from cancer and his death was confirmed on Thursday by his family. It's the worst kind of coincidence - Bowie and Rickman were 69 years old and passed after battling cancer, and a week before that British musician Lemmy also passed away from cancer just days after turning 70.

Rickman's distinct features and immediately identifiable diction were admired by generations of actors and made him synonymous with playing antagonists - something he famously wasn't a fan of as he preferred to play the dashing leading man role which he did manage to do in some of his work.

Coming to fame with a key role in The BBC's mini-series "The Barchester Chronicles,

Television’s Richard Lloyd Will Teach You How to Play Guitar

  • Vulture
Richard Lloyd, by way of credentials, was one of the guitarists on Television’s Marquee Moon (Tom Verlaine was the other), which is just about the best guitar album to come out of the original New York Cbgb’s scene. Lloyd, who’s 64, doesn’t gig much these days, but he does teach guitar. It’s punk rock at Champagne prices — a hundred bucks per hourlong lesson — but it’s something else, too. You take a guitar lesson because you want to learn to play. You take a guitar lesson from Richard Lloyd because you hope he’ll reveal whatever magic he used to conjure those magnificent, spiraling Marquee Moon solos.About a week after I scheduled time with Lloyd via the email address on his website, I took the train to his fifth-floor Inwood walk-up. (He isn’t the only name-brand, high-cred option available to New York’s aspiring guitar heroes.

'Rings' Lands 'Big Bang Theory' Star Johnny Galecki

'Rings' Lands 'Big Bang Theory' Star Johnny Galecki
The Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki has signed on for a lead role in Paramount's horror sequel Rings, which is set 13 years after the events of the studio's 2002 thriller The Ring. In what is described as a massive departure from his role as nerdy scientist Leonard on CBS' The Big Bang Theory, Johnny Galecki is portraying Gabriel, a "handsome, pleasure-seeking professor" who mentors the young couple Julia (Matilda Lutz) and Holt (Alex Roe). Production is already under way on Rings in Atlanta.

The story centers on Holt and Julia, whose relationship begins to deteriorate after Holt watches a mysterious VHS tape. We reported yesterday that the character Aidan Keller from both The Ring and The Ring Two will be back in this sequel as an adult, but it isn't known if David Dorfman, who is now 22 years old, will reprise his role from the first two movies.

Sundance ’15: Baumbach, Fleck/Boden, Pulcini/Berman, Ponsoldt & Another Swanberg Among Premieres

Last year’s slate of seventeen Narrative Premieres (excluding secret screenings of Boyhood and Nymphomaniac: Vol. I) refreshingly included works from first time filmmakers. I hadn’t seen it coming but Little Accidents and The One I Love were included among the likes of Calvary, Frank and Love is Strange. 2015 will be a true we Swanberg family affair with Joe Swanberg joining wife Kris (Unexpected) with a feature as well in Digging for Fire. James Ponsoldt is officially four for four with Sundance — his latest End of the Tour should be a slam dunk for the Eccles. Sticking to the numbers game… we’ll have a lovely bedfellow pairings of Kyle Patrick Alvarez’s already announced The Stanford Prison Experiment which is going to be mentioned in many loglines alongside Michael Almereyda’s Experimenter - about the Milgram experiment. Among the filmmaking duos we were expecting, we find Mississippi Grind

Sundance: Premieres, Doc Premieres
Festival top brass have revealed a high-profile roster of out-of-competition Premieres and Documentary Premieres entries featuring many returning heroes, as well as a new Special Events section and panel participants including George Lucas.

James Ponsoldt’s David Foster Wallace film End Of The Tour (pictured, photo by Jakob Ihre) starring Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel makes the cut — Fortitude International is the international sales agent — as does the latest from the newly prolific Noah Baumbach, whose Mistress America stars his Frances Ha and Greenberg muse Greta Gerwig and arrives three months after the Toronto premiere of While We’re Young.
