Viggo Mortensen's Hippie Heroics in Captain Fantastic
Huffington Post - 4 months
The movie Captain Fantastic sounds like an action adventure, and it is, if you consider parenting a thrilling sport. The opening shows bare chested young people making their way through the forest, foraging for food, dismembering prey, a primitive tribe. But no, the movie takes place in the "so-called" present civilized world, in a family whose father played with handsome hippie looks by Viggo Mortensen, home schools his six children in the ways of the wilderness, that is, if you call a teepee a home. Beautifully acted with a stellar cast including Kathryn Hahn, Steve Zahn, and the great Frank Langella, as written and directed by Matt Ross, Captain Fantastic is the best movie about parenting I've ever seen. At a luncheon at the Explorers Club celebrating this film, Viggo Mortensen praised Matt Ross' direction, but especially his script. Although the circumstances become dire, there are no heroes or villains, even though you root for Viggo Mortensen's Ben whose parenting skills do not ...

Viggo Mortensen Raises A Family Off The Grid In Sundance's Triumphant 'Captain Fantastic'
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Film festivals are all-day affairs, stuffed with one movie, interview, party and hurried pizza slice after the next. By the time I took my seat for Sundance's Saturday evening premiere of "Captain Fantastic" -- my seventh screening in three days -- I was glassy-eyed and ready for a nap. Two hours later, I was on my feet, joining the entirety of the large Eccles Theater in a standing ovation. Suddenly, my Sundance spunk was renewed.  It's easy to get swept up by a movie that stands out amid a bunch of lukewarm fare. It happened last year when the Eccles crowd rose in adoration for "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl," a movie that spent the rest of 2015 facing backlash and box-office defeat. (For the record, I wasn't a fan.) I'm confident "Captain Fantastic" is no "Me and Earl." There is a dying girl, but no matter: This is a spirited film celebrating life and ingenuity.  It's Matt Ross' second directorial effort, following 2012's "28 Hotel Rooms." You'll recognize Ross as Gavin Bel ...

HUFFPOST HILL - Debt Ceiling Is Stucco Kind, Treasury Says
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Jeb Bush thinks the country would benefit from a localized recession in Washington, D.C., because nothing closes federal budget deficits like schadenfreude in flyover country. The Treasury Department says there's no way for the U.S. government to avoid defaulting on its debt without Congress raising the debt limit, advising Republicans that creditors won't accept a vial of John Boehner's tears as collateral. And House conservatives have their knives out for Paul Ryan because he's got a liberal immigration record the size of a cantaloupe. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Friday, October 16, 2016: WHEN DOES GOWDY SAY HOWDY? - Turns out Trey says hey only when there's a Clintonite that day. Jen Bendery: "Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) insists his Benghazi Committee investigation isn't about hurting 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the polls. It's about providing a definitive account of the 2012 attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya. But if you look at the witness interviews he ...

Revolution Brings Out Matt Ross To Play Warlord
Boom Tron - over 3 years
The Revolution cast is never quite short of dangerous mad men roaming the countryside trying to take power that doesn’t necessarily belong to them. The NBC series is so dedicated to its mad men that it revolved its entire first season around stopping one when it might have better spent its time fleshing out its characters in enjoyable ways. But Munroe has been knocked down and other crazy people are going to be popping up now and then to remind viewers nobody is as batshit crazy as Munroe; not by a long shot. Which is why it’s going to especially anti-climactic to have Matt Ross join the series. As reported by TVLine, Ross, who’s known for his work on HBO’s Big Love, will be appearing in the first two episodes of Revolution’s second season as an educated, relentless warlord named Titus Andover. My first question is: What was his mother thinking when she named him? With a name like that, you’re practically guaranteed to go into tyranny or warfare ­or both. Here’s the thing though; R ...

'Magic City' Gets 'Darker, Crazier And More Vicious'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Magic City" Season 2 premieres Friday, June 14 (9 p.m. ET on Starz), and Jeffrey Dean Morgan promises that the new year brings a story that's "darker, crazier and more vicious" than anything we saw last season (which featured blackmail, murder and voyeuristic sex acts on a weekly basis). Plus, Season 2 boasts Oscar nominee James Caan returning to his "Godfather" roots as a Chicago mobster whom Morgan simply describes as "a scary dude." So what lengths will Ike Evans (Morgan) go to in order to rid his Miramar Playa Hotel of the mob and Ben “The Butcher” Diamond (Danny Huston)? And will his long-shot gamble tear the Evans family apart? Find out what Morgan told HuffPost TV to expect from "Magic City" Season 2 below. Last time we saw Ike, he was in jail for murder, with State Attorney Jack Klein (Matt Ross) determined to throw away the key. Where does the beginning of Season 2 find him? I'm guessing the whole season isn't set with Ike in jail ... [Laughs.] No, no -- we ha ...

Jewel Steps Into Reese Witherspoon Territory
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Lifetime's latest movie "Ring of Fire" told Johnny and June Carter Cash's love story, but from June's perspective. Singer-songwriter Jewel took on the iconic role in "Ring of Fire," which used Cash's biggest hit as a main part of its plot. "You wrote 'Ring of Fire' for me," Johnny (Matt Ross) says in the movie, which is based on Johnny and June's son's book, "Anchored in Love: An Intimate Portrait of June Carter Cash." "I didn't write it for you. I wrote it about you. And hearing you sing it makes me proud," June replies. The Washington Post says the biggest issue with "Ring of Fire" is that it followed the 2005 Johnny and June biopic, "Walk The Line." Emily Yahr wrote: "2005 wasn't that long ago. It's fresh enough in people's minds that anyone portraying Cash's famous second wife (as singer-songwriter Jewel does here) is going to be compared with Reese Witherspoon, who won an Oscar for her portrayal." And that was something Jewel realized when she signed on f ...

Huffington Post - almost 4 years
TV Review Jackie K Cooper "Ring of Fire" (Lifetime) Jewel (Kilcher) sparkles and shines in Lifetime's original movie "Ring of Fire," the story of June Carter Cash. The movie tells the story of this country legend from early childhood to death. Matt Ross co-stars as Johnny Cash and Frances Conroy is featured as Mother Maybelle.

The film opens with June as a small child performing with her family on the radio and in concerts. It then moves ahead to when June flirted with fellow singer Carl Smith (Linds Edwards) on air and in concert. She ended up marrying him but he was unfaithful. She then married a race car driver.

Post-Sandy, CSG Keeps The Sandwiches Coming
Huffington Post - over 4 years
We talk a lot around here about the curative qualities of food. Not in a medical sense, none of us are doctors (we would be terrible at that), but in an emotional and community-based sense. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the best thing we knew how to do was cook for our friends and neighbors who needed a good hot meal. At Court Street Grocers, in Brooklyn's Carroll Gardens neighborhood, they kind of feel the same way. This specialty grocery and sandwich shop, which celebrated its second anniversary just yesterday, has an intensely loyal customer base, made up of neighborhood regulars and inter-borough travelers alike. Their shelves are stocked with meticulously curated products that paint a picture of American culture that looks a lot like most food people think of it: diverse, kind of nerdy and seemingly endless. Their Turkey Club is the stuff of legends (Francis Lam thinks it's the best turkey sandwich in the world -- it's really hard for us to argue with that). ...

We're writing about former van-dwelling singer-songwriter, erstwhile poet Jewel - ahh, it feels like the '90s. Though Reese Witherspoon already had a run at playing the definitive fictionalized version of the country singer and cultural touch point, and won an Oscar for her troubles, Lifetime is throwing their hat into the biopic ring with TV movie June Carter Cash and Jewel tweeted a photo of herself in character and she has transformed. The typically blond Jewel is virtually unrecognizable, what with the blue eyes, brunette locks and well, impeccably straight teeth and also snapped a pic of her co-star Matt Ross ("American Horror Story") who plays Johnny Cash. Get a peek at what the lady who penned "Who Will Save Your Soul?" looks like as June Carter Cash.

Lifetime has snapped up both Rob Lowe and Jewel to star in two of its upcoming films.
