The “Boardwalk Empire” alum who deserves to be a star
Salon.com - about 3 years
"Boardwalk Empire" fans saw the demise of a most beloved character when the fourth season of the HBO show came to an end this Sunday. Richard Harrow, the severely maimed sharpshooter-turned-thug-turned assassin barely escaped capture after having literally missed his mark and accidentally murdered the daughter of a friend. Wracked with guilt, he fled toward the makeshift family he'd labored so hard to protect. But in a world where most retirement plans amount to no more than a hail of bullets -- alas -- Harrow died alone by the shore, dreaming of a home that never was. As romantic and karmically appropriate an end it may have been for a Prohibition Era gunslinger, it still seemed an untimely exit for a performer with Huston's potential. It is for that reason and more that I suggest someone give Jack Huston A Show of His Own. Continue Reading...

'Kill Your Darlings' review: Muddled look at Beats
San Francisco Chronicle - over 3 years
"Kill Your Darlings" deals with the early years of the Beat Generation writers and with Lucien Carr, the charming college student who knew all the key players and introduced them to each other in the mid-1940s. Through the literature of the future, which they hope to write, they want to change the world, and their guides are the sacred texts, the words of like-minded poets and writers throughout the ages. In its best moments, "Kill Your Darlings" conveys the excitement of young people believing in books and striving to remake themselves. The film presents most of the Beats - including Kerouac (Jack Huston) and William S. Burroughs (Ben Foster) - but the two main dramatic threads have to do with Carr: (1) Carr's relationship with David Kammerer (Michael C. Hall), an older man who, obsessed with Carr, followed him from school to school; and (2) Carr's influence on the life and poetry of Ginsberg. In a sense, the writer-director is gambling that his audience will see Ginsberg as a gre ...

Daniel Radcliffe as Allen Ginsberg: Kill Your Darlings Opens the Hamptons International Film Festival
Huffington Post - over 3 years
After much buzz on the festival circuit, including Sundance, Venice, Toronto, to name a few, Kill Your Darlings opens the Hamptons International Film Festival tonight. Before there was Neal Cassady to whom the writer Jack Kerouac was in thrall, there was Lucien Carr. A St. Louis friend of William Burroughs, Carr was a fast and scary driver, catalyst for acts of rebellion, and key player in perhaps the first bit of beat scandal, the murder of Dave Kammerer, his former boy scout leader and stalker, with a boy scout knife. "Kill" co-screenwriters, director John Krokidas and Austin Bunn, play fast and loose with beat lore, favoring a point of view from Allen Ginsberg's journals, fashioning a gay coming of age tale featuring a deflowering when they could have sought out the more fully formed fictions in Kerouac's ample telling and retelling. They clearly wanted to tell a gay story, and in skewing events this way, describing a period when heterosexual yearnings too had a subversive edge, th ...

'Kill Your Darlings' Trailer: 1940s Beat Generation Comes To Life At The Hands Of A Scruffy Daniel Radcliffe
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The first full trailer for the Beat Generation biopic "Kill Your Darlings" has arrived, literary musings and 1940s angst fully intact. Daniel Radcliffe takes on Allen Ginsberg in the film -- the poet was recently portrayed by James Franco in "Howl" and David Cross in "I'm Not There" -- and the "Harry Potter" alum's frumpy hair and Ivy League scruff further distance him from Hogwarts. Set during Ginsberg's years at Columbia, "Darlings" zeroes in on the 1944 murder committed by Beat staple Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan). Ben Forster portrays William Burroughs and "Boardwalk Empire" regular Jack Huston plays Jack Kerouac, with a supporting cast comprising Elizabeth Olsen, Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Jason Leigh and, interestingly enough, David Cross as Kerouac's poet father. "Darlings" hits theaters Oct. 16.

'Kill Your Darlings' Poster: Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan Got the Beat
Moviefone Blog - over 3 years
A movie with Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and William S. Burroughs sounds like it has the makings of a rejected literary sitcom. But, in real life, these three knew each other well -- at least before they hit it big. In "Kill Your Darlings," audiences get a glimpse at the early adventures of the legendary Beat writers, along with a murder that would irrevocably change their lives forever. The film -- starring Daniel Radcliffe as Ginsberg, Ben Foster as Burroughs, Jack Huston as Kerouac, and Dane DeHaan as their friend, Lucien Carr -- premiered to rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival this past January. Radcliffe, in particular, received praise for his nuanced portrayal of the "Howl" poet. It's a drastic change from the actor best known as Harry Potter, as he trades in his wizard's cloak for a sweater vest (the black-rimmed glasses remain). Today, Moviefone is happy to premiere the first poster for "Kill Your Darlings," which you can check out below. The film hit ...

JGL, Lucy Liu Invited To Join the Academy (Wait, They Weren't Already Members?)

Today the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences invited 276 people from in front of and behind the camera to join the organization and, more importantly, vote annually for the Oscars. The list contains names of several great filmmakers and actors who broke through in the recent years, like "Looper" director Rian Johnson, Lena Dunham, and Jack Huston from "Boardwalk Empire," but several of the invitees are pretty surprising, not in that they were invited, but that it took so long. These are the actors we were surprised aren't already in the Academy — and how we imagine they reacted when they got the news.

Matthew Kohut: Rock and Roll Boot Camp, Jersey Style
Huffington Post - about 4 years
It takes painstaking work to replicate a mid-sixties Jersey garage band, particularly when your boss is Steven Van Zandt of E Street Band fame. "He's a stickler for everything that's authentic," said Robbie Mangano, who worked for Van Zandt, the music supervisor on Not Fade Away, a coming-of-age story written and directed by Sopranos creator David Chase. "Steven would come in and check everything out, like how high do you hold the guitar? Is it Beatles-high?" Mangano's initial job of giving guitar lessons to two of the film's actors morphed into running a garage band boot camp. "Steven wanted them to get comfortable playing together, so I was asked to stay after guitar lessons. At first, I'd play along and sing and just lead them through the songs they were starting to learn, and (actors) John (Magaro) and Will (Brill) and Jack (Huston) would be trying to play together in a band for the first time." The quest for authenticity also called for Mangano to teach a musical v ...

Harry Potter's Shocking New Role
Huffington Post - about 4 years
PARK CITY, Utah -- Daniel Radcliffe doesn't mind hearing that schoolgirls were staking him out at the Sundance Film Festival, hoping for a Harry Potter sighting. In fact, Radcliffe is happy if his Potter fame conjures up interest for what he wants to do with the rest of his career, such as his bold turn as young gay poet Allen Ginsberg in the Sundance premiere "Kill Your Darlings." Radcliffe goes nude for an explicit sex scene with another man, makes out with co-star Dane DeHaan and also appears in another sex scene with a clerk in a library while DeHaan's character looks on. As with his Broadway debut in "Equus," which also featured a nude scene, Radcliffe said his celebrity from the boy wizard franchise might draw in fans who would not have seen a film such as "Kill Your Darlings." "I don't care why people come and see films. If they come and see a film about the beat poets because they saw me in `Harry Potter,' fantastic. That's a wonderful thing," Radcli ...

Daniel Radcliffe Shocks Audiences With Boundary-Pushing Sex Scenes
Huffington Post - about 4 years
PARK CITY, Utah — Daniel Radcliffe has really left Harry Potter behind with a startling and explicit Sundance Film Festival role as poet Allen Ginsberg. "Kill Your Darlings," the "Harry Potter" star's first film at the independent-cinema showcase, premiered Friday at Sundance and puts Radcliffe into daring territory. His young Ginsberg is initiated into booze and drugs, has oral sex performed on him in a library, makes out with one man and gets naked for sex with another man. In a session with the audience after the premiere, Radcliffe was asked if he chose the role because it fit the "weird stuff" he likes. Radcliffe said it was the second time that day he was asked the same question and conceded his tastes can run outside the mainstream. "Films like this don't get made unless everyone involved loves them," Radcliffe said. The film recounts a little-known story of murder involving Ginsberg's circle of friends, including fellow future beat heroes Jack ...
