‘Atlanta’ Writer on Paper Boi’s Heartbreaking Loss, ‘Teddy Perkins,’ and Life After ‘Deadpool’

‘Atlanta’ Writer on Paper Boi’s Heartbreaking Loss, ‘Teddy Perkins,’ and Life After ‘Deadpool’
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Atlanta” Season 2, Episode 8, “Woods.”]

“Teddy Perkins” might have been the most horrific “Atlanta” episode to date, but Thursday’s “Woods” still gave viewers plenty of reason to flinch and be frightened. After ditching his not-girlfriend at the nail parlor, Alfred (Brian Tyree Henry) is walking home when three teenagers recognize him as Paper Boi, but decide to mug him anyway because he’s alone. The resulting struggle is messy, brutal, and difficult to watch. When one assailant pulls a gun, Alfred flees into the nearby woods.

As a main character, Alfred would normally be free from real consequences on a so-called comedy, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it here. With the murder-suicide and Darius’ (Lakeith Stanfield) close call in “Teddy Perkins,” it seemed as if maybe this would be the episode where one of our heroes dies. Alfred certainly doesn’t get away from the encounter unscathed.

‘Atlanta': ‘Nothing Can Ever Be The Same Again’ for Alfred After ‘Woods,’ Brian Tyree Henry Says

Warning: Spoilers ahead for “Woods,” Episode 8 of “Atlanta: Robbin’ Season.”

Things are about to change for Alfred Miles, aka Paper Boi, as he’s been struggling to keep it “real” rather than give in to the rapstar persona that has made him famous.

In Thursday night’s episode, titled “Woods,” Alfred spends the first half of the episode arguing with his Instagram famous not-girlfriend, who tries to convince him to post more often on social media and develop his brand. “I’m just trying to stay real,” Alfred tells her.

“You’re on the radio and you’re making money,” she says. “You’ve been not real.”

It clearly rubs Alfred the wrong way. “He’s been fighting so hard to be real,” actor Brian Tyree Henry told TheWrap ahead of the episode’s airing, adding that Alfred doesn’t want to give in to “this rapper persona.” He’s been trying to convey a sense of “I’m a real guy, just like you.”

But later in the episode, he ends up getting mugged at gunpoint and chased into the woods precisely because he’s not real-guy Alfred, but Paper Boi.

“After this episode, he’s going to realize that he’s not [a regular guy] anymore. Nothing can ever be the same again for him,” Henry said. “It forces him to confront a lot of things.”

Henry said that getting mugged and his time wandering around the woods forces Alfred to realize that he “doesn’t know everything about who he is.”

And neither do viewers. “We know everything about Earn’s background, kinda. We know pretty much about Vanessa’s, and we know — well — we know Darius,” Henry said. “But I don’t think that people really know that this is Alfred’s territory, this is his home. I don’t think Alfred has ever left Georgia, ever in his life.”

At the end of the episode, after Alfred has spent hours hiding in the woods, and walking around in circles, he seems to give in to what earlier in the episode he referred to as “that fake s—.” He offers to take a selfie with a fan who recognizes him in a convenience store, and he seems to realize that he can no longer be anonymous in his hometown. As Henry said, he’s learning “how to turn the game on.”

Atlanta” airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on FX.

New ‘Solo’ Poster Rightfully Puts Lando Front and Center

Whatever questions or concerns fans may have about Solo: A Star Wars Story, and the bumpy road its taken to get to our screens, the one thing that looks like it will be an unassailable truth is that Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian is going to be the film's true star. Glover has done a lot of really interesting things in his career, but if you've been watching his FX series Atlanta, you will know without a doubt that he is one of the most creative minds working today.

‘Atlanta': Why Being Brian Tyree Henry Is ‘a Lot of Daunting’ Right Now

Just like his rapper persona on FX’s “Atlanta,” star Brian Tyree Henry isn’t quite used to getting stopped on the street by fans.

“It becomes a little daunting — a lot of daunting, actually — because now you can’t really navigate the streets the way you used to,” he told TheWrap in a recent interview. “I find myself having to go left instead of right, but I’m used to going right sometimes.”

Henry said that, yes, people definitely stop him by calling out “Paper Boi!” just like on the show. It’s “difficult,” but “good.”

Also Read: Donald Glover to Host 'Saturday Night Live' Next Month

“The Paper Boi persona, it does happen to me a lot … It’s all good, it just means that people are paying attention,” he said.

And these days, there’s a lot to pay attention to. He earned an Emmy nomination for his guest spot on NBC’s “This Is Us,” is currently starring on Broadway opposite Chris Evans in “Lobby Hero” — for which he was just nominated for a Drama League Award — and will be appearing in several movies this year, including the upcoming “Hotel Artemis.”

It’s a similar case with his “Atlanta” character Alfred, who in Season 2 has had to deal with being recognized in his home town like he never has before.

“He went to sleep as Alfred, and then goes on the streets and now he’s Paper Boi,” Henry said.

“It has its ups and downs,” the actor continued. “Like he can get free stuff and people still kind of want to, like, be in his space, but then people are grabbing him and taking pictures while [he’s] getting out of jail.”

“Those things, it’s a conflict for him. Constantly, I think, because he doesn’t really understand it, nor did he ask for it,” he said. “So it’s like, he still has to learn how to move through that … how to play the game. All the while playing the game, makes him exposed.”

Speaking of himself, Henry said the exposure “can be daunting. It can … kind of, like, make you forget exactly who you are at any given point in time. ‘Cause you’re like, ‘well wait a minute, hold on. What was I doing? Who am I? Where was I going?”

But the very thing that leads to exposure is what keeps Henry sane. “The work is actually the thing that keeps me the most grounded,” he said, because “it quiets the noise.”

“It’s been very hard, but it’s all very gratifying at the same time,” he said. Being on “television and film and the stage at the same time, it shows that the work is working, you know?”

Atlanta” airs on FX Thursdays at 10 p.m.

Anthony Carrigan (HBO’s ‘Barry’) as henchman with a heart of gold steals scenes from ‘SNL’ veteran Bill Hader

Anthony Carrigan (HBO’s ‘Barry’) as henchman with a heart of gold steals scenes from ‘SNL’ veteran Bill Hader
One of the biggest scene-stealers for this TV season is Anthony Carrigan, who plays a mobster alongside “SNL” veteran and Emmy nominee Bill Hader in HBO’s buzz-worthy “Barry.” Audiences are already noticing his star-making turn as NoHo Hank, a bald, tattooed Chechen thug that also happens to be a polished henchman with a heart of gold.

If he is on the Emmy ballot this summer, voters love in the comedy supporting categories when a person is a flamboyant, over-the-top character. Just ask Tituss Burgess (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), Jeremy Piven (“Entourage”), Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother”) and Sean Hayes (“Will & Grace”), who were all Emmy nominated early on in their respective shows’ runs as standout comedic talents, often out-shining their lead actors.

Emmy spotlight: Lakeith Stanfield delivers ‘brilliant’ performance in ‘Atlanta’ horror story ‘Teddy Perkins’

Emmy spotlight: Lakeith Stanfield delivers ‘brilliant’ performance in ‘Atlanta’ horror story ‘Teddy Perkins’
Atlanta” reached the halfway mark of its critically acclaimed second season on Thursday, April 5, with one of its most compelling, disturbing and Emmy worthy episodes. In “Teddy Perkins,” written by series creator and star Donald Glover and directed by series regular Hiro Murai, Lakeith Stanfield is handed his first stand-alone narrative of the series as Darius, continuing a trend that began in season one with episodes for Zazie Beetz’s Van (“Value”) and Brian Tyree Henry’s Paper Boi (“B.A.N.”) and continued this season in “Helen” and “Barbershop” in the two preceding installments.

In the episode, Darius ventures in a U-Haul truck to pick up a piano being offered for free on a message board by a wealthy recluse named Teddy Perkins (Glover), brother and caretaker to the now mute and wheelchair-bound musician Benny Hope (Derrick Haywood). Teddy, we come to find out, suffers from a number of psychological issues,

Donald Glover to Host ‘Saturday Night Live’ Next Month
With season 2 of “Atlanta” in full swing and “Solo: A Star Wars Story” coming out next month, Donald Glover will make his hosting debut on “Saturday Night Live” on May 5, the show announced early Sunday.

The actor-writer-director will also perform as the show’s musical guest in the guise of his Grammy-winning rapper alter-ego, Childish Gambino.

This marks Glover’s return to NBC after previously serving as a writer and guest star on the network’s hit comedy “30 Rock” as well as starring in the cult hit sitcom “Community.”

Glover left “Community” midway through the show’s fifth season in 2013, citing a need for more independent projects. This led to his own series, “Atlanta,” on FX, a comedy that has already won him two Emmys and two Golden Globes.

Glover’s musical performance on “SNL” will be one of his final big performances as Childish Gambino, as he revealed at last year’s Governors Ball Festival in New York that he will be retiring from hip-hop after one more album. His 2016 album “Awaken, My Love!” went gold in America and earned a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year.

Glover will play the famed smuggler Lando Calrissian in “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” which will reveal how the future head of Cloud City first met Han Solo. Glover will also play Simba in the 2019 live-action remake of “The Lion King.”

‘Atlanta’ Delivers A Creepy Episode in “Teddy Perkins”

FX’S Atlanta is one of the hottest shows on television right now. That is a bold statement, but on April 5th, Atlanta aired an episode titled, “Teddy Perkins”, and everything was turned upside down in a Twin Peaks kind of way that no one was expecting. What was told was both creepy and sad.

The episode ran for 41 minutes commercial free, which meant the network believed what was transpiring on screen. Going commercial free also gave the episode an almost moviesque feeling and I believe it worked perfectly. The “Teddy Perkins” episode revolved round the character of Darius (Lakeith Stanfield) venturing out on his own in a rented U-Haul jamming out to Stevie Wonder. As a viewer I was under the impression that Darius would get into some funny or mischievous escapades just like the other characters are known to do in the series. That impression flew out the

‘Will & Grace’ would set longest gap between Best Comedy Series Emmy wins

‘Will & Grace’ would set longest gap between Best Comedy Series Emmy wins
The first and only time “Will & Grace” won Best Comedy Series at the Emmys was a full adult ago — 18 years, way back in 2000. The NBC sitcom could pick up a bookend Emmy in September with the revival, which would set a record for the longest gap between Best Comedy Series wins.

Now it goes without saying that this wouldn’t be possible without the revival, and a gap this long is practically unheard of, since most shows don’t run continuously for nearly two decades, let alone receive Emmy recognition for that entire duration. The Emmys like to get into streaks with their favorites and then drop them like a bad habit.

Sixteen shows have won multiple Best Comedy Series and almost all of them did it with consecutive wins. “Frasier” and “Modern Family” both pulled off a five-peat. All six three-time winners — “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” “The Phil Silvers Show,

Lena Waithe Gets Real With Lgbt Community in GLAAD Award Speech: ‘We Can Be a Little Segregated’ (Video)

Lena Waithe Gets Real With Lgbt Community in GLAAD Award Speech: ‘We Can Be a Little Segregated’ (Video)
In accepting the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Individual Episode, Lena Waithe asked the Lgbtqia+ community to come together.

“A lot of people ask me why I say I’m queer,” she said after accepting her award from Halle Berry. Waithe won for her work on the “Thanksgiving” episode in the second season of “Master of None,” which chronicles her own coming out story — for which she also won an Emmy last year.

“I say that because I think it’s a big umbrella. I don’t want to separate myself from my trans family, my non-binary, bisexual [family],” she said. “I feel like sometimes we can be a little segregated, you know what I mean?”

“We need to be united, because Laverne Cox’s struggle may look different than mine, but the pain we feel is the same,” she said. “Someone who may be A-sexual may have a different journey than mine, but we have a similar life.”

“There’s things we have in common,” she continued. “And at the end of the day, we’re already ‘othered,’ so why should we ‘other’ ourselves anymore than we already are?”

“We have to educate each other on our own individual journeys, because at the end of the day, we’re all we’ve got,” she continued. “So let’s hold on to that and let’s hold on to each other. We’ve got to be one big family.”

“When we stand together, there’s no weapon they can form that can harm us.”
