Fargo (2014– )
"Variety definitely attracts me.
The 22-year-old stripped down for a sexy Playboy photo shoot as she revealed she wants to become an actress. Clara is the eldest of McGregor’s four children with ex Eve Mavrakis, who the actor filed for divorce from in January, citing irreconcilable differences.
“Comme ci comme ça,” Clara wrote on social media alongside two photos of herself posing nude in bed, referencing the tattoo she has underneath her breast, which is visible in one of the revealing snaps.
@playboy ???? @playboy ... comme ci comme ça
In a festival-filled world, Tff has often struggled to find its identity. In recent years, its greatest strengths have included an increasingly impressive curation beyond cinema: panels and interviews, concerts and retrospectives, television premieres and virtual reality arcades.
As for films, the experience is more akin to sifting for rough gems. And we’ve got one here. First-time feature director Eva Vives (who co-wrote “Raising Victor Vargas”) has a lot to say and finds some provocative ways to express it all. A major late-act revelation, in particular, is likely to be a significant talking point after screenings.

But the movie’s deepest emotional impact comes from an electrifying star turn by Mary Elizabeth Winstead. The reliably excellent Winstead takes charge from the moment she swaggers on screen as Nina, a 33-year-old stand-up whose brutal cynicism hides a lifetime’s worth of secrets.
For one thing, she’s not quite as together as she appears on stage. She vomits after every show from nerves, drinks way too much far too often, and is involved in an abusive relationship with a married cop (“Gossip Girl”‘s Chace Crawford, convincingly scummy).
She’s ready to leave her unhappy New York life behind, though, and gets her agent (Angelique Cabral, “Life in Pieces”) to set her up in La. Soon she’s crammed into a Mini Cooper, moving in with a spiritual writer named Lake (Kate del Castillo, “The 33”), and attending a mystical fundraiser for a cat sanctuary. “I’m water-based,” Lake gently explains, by way of introduction. “I’m whiskey-based,” Nina responds, as baffled as any New Yorker would be.

Things seem to pick up when she meets Rafe (Common), who would like to be her first real boyfriend. But the odds that both of them will traverse an inevitably rocky road seem increasingly slim.
The intensely charismatic Common should be cast as a lead more often, but he’s poorly served here by an ill-conceived role that undermines his character right away. Since Nina and Rafe’s relationship is half the story, this does leave the movie feeling a little lopsided. It’s as if Vives knew that a conventional romantic arc was too constraining for her complicated heroine but felt obliged to make the effort anyway.
The strongest parts of the movie, in fact, are those populated entirely by women. An amusingly new-age argument between Lake and her girlfriend (Clea DuVall) and a wrenching phone call between Nina and her mom (Camryn Manheim) are highlights.

But it’s an underplayed moment in which Nina and several other female comics audition for an “SNL”-style show that exemplifies Vives’ most interesting intentions: to take us where we’ve been before, from a new perspective. (An underused Beau Bridges plays the Lorne Michaels-esque producer.) As the ladies sit around making each other laugh and cutting each other down, we realize how often we’ve seen similar scenes — and how rarely with women.
There’s a much trickier and more dramatic segment later in the film, which isn’t as deftly written. But it is played with stunning power by Winstead, who fully sells every up, down and reversal Nina experiences. Though the material isn’t quite ready for primetime, Winstead once again proves herself a major player.

Stepping out to support his latest film, Zoe, the 47-year-old actor walked the red carpet at the film’s Tribeca Film Festival premiere in New York City on Saturday with his 22-year-old daughter.
The actor wore a low-key outfit for the occasion, opting for a dark blazer with jeans and black boots. Clara, who recently posed for Playboy, also dressed down in a form-fitting sheer dress layered over a white slip, which she accessorized with a pair of neutral boots and a purse decorated with flowers.

Fargo’s Carrie Coon to Play Crucial Avengers: Infinity War Villain
"Carrie Coon is Proxima Midnight. and you may know her from season three of Fargo or the Leftovers."
In addition to the Emmy-nominated Fargo actress taking on the role of Proxima Midnight, it was also revealed that Irish actor Tom Vaughan-Lawlor will play Black Order member Ebony Maw, who has telekinetic powers. Lastly, Terry Notary (Avatar), will play Cull Obsidian. The character is mostly silent, but Notary provided the motion capture performance for Obsidian, with Anthony Russo saying, "He's not so much a voice." Joe Russo
At this point, just thinking about how many characters are jam-packed into Avengers: Infinity War is enough to make our heads spin. The epic trailer confirms the appearance of basically all of our beloved Wakandans from Black Panther, the Og Avengers, Doctor Strange and co., and . . . well, like we said, pretty much everyone else. Now it seems that not only will we watch our favorite heroes face off against the evil Thanos, but we'll also get a glimpse of a new character, one who doesn't take too kindly to anyone standing in Thanos's way: the villainous Proxima Midnight.
In an interview with Radio Times co-director Joe Russo revealed that Carrie Coon (wickedly talented The Leftovers and Fargo alum) will appear as a member of Thanos's brutal Black Order. She is the only female member of the team of supervillains and will presumably help Thanos in
During an interview with Britain’s Radio Times, directors Joe and Anthony Russo opened up about some of the film’s characters they’d decided to keep under wraps, confirming that the actress, who received an Emmy nomination in 2017 for her role on Fargo, is playing villain Proxima Midnight, one of the members of Thanos’ Black Order.
“Carrie Coon is Proxima Midnight,” co-director Joe Russo told the outlet, adding that fans might “know her from season three of Fargo or The Leftovers.
Carrie Coon will play Proxima Midnight in Avengers: Infinity War, directors Joe and Anthony Russo revealed in an interview with Radio Times.
The character is a member of the Black Order, a group of ruthless aliens that serve Thanos in his villainous quest. She is arguably the most most deadly of her group, and was created by comic book writer Jonathan Hickman and debuted along with her colleagues in 2013's New Avengers No. 8 during the "Infinity Stone" storyline.

Radio Times has the scoop, confirming that Coon provides the voice of Thanos’ leading henchman – or henchwoman, really – alongside the telekinetic Ebony Maw (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor), Cull Obsidian (Avatar‘s Terry Notary) and the sinister Corvus Glaive. Still no word on who’s playing the latter, leading many to conclude that said role actually belongs to Peter Dinklage, given the Game of Thrones mainstay was previously confirmed for Infinity War.
Directors Joe and Anthony Russo refused to be drawn on the identity of Glaive’s voice actor, but the former did confirm Coon’s involvement during a recent chat with Radio Times:
Carrie Coon is Proxima Midnight, and you may know
The news of Coon’s participation was revealed by “Infinity War” directors Joe and Anthony Russo in an interview with British magazine Radio Times. Having reconfirmed that Irish actor Tom Vaughn-Lawlor was voicing fellow Black Order member Ebony Maw, the brothers were asked if they could reveal “any other interesting voices in the Black Order.” “Carrie Coon is Proxima Midnight,” Joe Russo said.
The actress confirmed the news Monday on Twitter, also revealing she had performed facial motion capture for the role. Coon wrote: “It’s true! My voice and a dazzle of gifted animators have teamed up to play Proxima Midnight. To be fair
Based on the popular cult comic book franchise, Preacher tells the absurdly twisted tale of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), a small-town preacher inhabited by an angel-demon spawn that gives him the power to make people do his bidding, Tulip (Ruth Negga), his volatile true love, and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), a 119-year-old Irish vampire.
In series two, after Jesse accidentally discovered that God is absent from Heaven, the three of them set out on a road trip to find Him, all while being hunted by the Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish), an unstoppable, mythical killer from Hell.
