Huffington Post - about 1 year
Season two of Mozart in the Jungle premieres today on Amazon, and if you haven't already binged watched it, what are you waiting for? If you need some convincing, the cast and creator stopped by AOL.BUILD to give viewers the inside scoop on season two. After the most intense opening night for the orchestra, season one ended with a playful and flirty stare between Hailey and Rodrigo which left fans wondering if and how their relationship will progress in the second season. "It progresses in the way that I think that, while Hailey feels just happy to be there in the first season, in this season I think that she really wants to aggressively pursue her passion," said Lola Kirke. "And there's an understanding that going for the person that she feels passionate about might be a major distraction and actually get in the way." That's not the only relationship progressing in season two. At the end of season one Bradford, played by executive producer Jason Schwartzman, fin ...

Huffington Post - about 3 years
Amazon's pilot season has begun and, just like last year, the future of the next Amazon Original series is in your hands. Ten new original pilots are now available to stream for free on Amazon and you get to vote on which ones will get picked up for series. While five of the pilots are for kids, the other five are comedies and dramas starring and written by some pretty reputable names. Since we know you only want to spend your weekend streaming the best of the best, we broke down each of the five "grown-up" pilots with our recommendations. You can watch all the pilots on Amazon. “The After” (Chris says ...) What’s it about? A group of mysteriously-linked strangers who are thrown together while trying to figure out why the world has suddenly gone all post-apocalyptic. Who’s in it? Some unfamiliar faces, Jamie Kennedy (for all you “Scream” fans), Sharon Lawrence (“NYPD Blue”) and a cameo from Smith from “Sex and the City” (who hopefully will return if the series is picked up).

Victoria Hand May Show Up On 'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.'
MTV News - over 3 years
By Alex Zalben Take this one with a grain of salt, but Latino Review - which according to their website, offers a Latin perspective on movies and pop culture - is reporting that Marvel Comics' character Victoria Hand may be coming to "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.": On a boring Friday afternoon, while I wait for the latest Banksy piece to drop this afternoon here in New York City, we got word from our usual trusted sources that Saffron Burrows (Troy) got cast in Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD as Agent Victoria Hand. If I can parse through their unique Latin perspective on this story for a moment - and move past the fact their source for this is themselves - it does make a lot of sense that Hand would show up on the program. In the comics, Hand is a former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who ends up being Norman Osborn's right hand man when the Spidey villain takes over the Marvel Universe, and changes S.H.I.E.L.D. into a very similar organization called H.A.M.M.E.R. The running joke about H.A.M.M.E ...

What She's Doing Next
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Jessica Chastain: can't stop, won't stop. The perma-busy actress, onscreen now in both "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Mama," has signed up to star in Liv Ullmann's upcoming adaptation of "Miss Julie," the 1888 play written by August Strindberg. According to Variety, Colin Farrell and Samantha Morton have also signed up for roles. Set in 1874, Strindberg's play focuses on the title Miss Julie (Chastain), who breaks away from her upstairs life by spending time with the servants during a summertime party. There, she meets an older servant named Jean, who changes her life. No word yet on who would play Jean, but Farrell seems too young for the role; he's only one year older than Chastain, and Jean remembers Miss Julie from when she was a child. "Miss Julie" was previously adapted by Mike Figgis in 1999 with Saffron Burrows and Peter Mullan in the lead roles. Chastain teased her involvement with "Miss Julie" earlier in January, which came as a surprise since Michelle Williams was ...

Cynthia Ellis: Interview: Rob Lowe Brings a Gun to a Knife Fight
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Actor and Author Rob Lowe. Portrait by Leslie Hassler. If Mother Theresa were a secret hoarder and Gandhi sniffed glue, would it make their idealism and the transformation they brought to millions any less valuable? This is the question that political strategist Paul Turner (Rob Lowe) faces as he tries to get his candidate another four years in office, in the film Knife Fight. Rob Lowe (The Outsiders, St. Elmo's Fire, About Last Night, Wayne's World, West Wing, Brothers and Sisters, Parks and Recreation) with his quick-draw delivery and insider knowledge of how public image can work for or against you, is a total natural for this role; at once wise, witty, and extremely funny. Turner's candidate, Eric McCormack (Will and Grace) playing a Kentucky Senator (reminiscent of John Edwards) complains, "I thought the only way for me to lose this election was to get caught in bed with a dead girl... or a live boy!" Turner is running out of time to turn this scandal around ...

'Knife Fight' Review: A Rough Take on Dirty Politics Unspools at Tribeca
The Wrap - almost 5 years
Have you been missing “The West Wing?” Fans of Aaron Sorkin's TV series will get a nostalgic kick out of “Knife Fight,” a film that focuses on the nitty-gritty, behind-the-scenes action of political campaigns and stars “West Wing” vets Rob Lowe and Richard Schiff. The comic drama, which plays like minor league Sorkin, had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in Manhattan last night and a press screening today. “Knife Fight” is the second feature film directed by Bill Guttentag, whose first was the mockumentary “Live!” He has won Oscars twice for documentary shorts subjects and been nominated three additional times for documentary shorts and features. Guttentag cowrote the screenplay with Chris Lehane, a veteran Democratic political consultant who served as special assistant counsel to President Bill Clinton and as press secretary to Al Gore during the 2000 presidential campaign.
