Eric Bogosian's 100 Monologues
Huffington Post - about 1 year
monologue: from the Greek μονόλογος; μόνος mónos or "alone, solitary" and λόγος lógos, "speech." The first recorded monologues and soliloquys go back at least as far as ancient Roman and Greek times. But unless you are someone with huge amounts of time on your hands and you love to surf the internet to discover acting gems that don't get theatrical releases-or you happen to live in New York and frequent the theater on a regular basis--It's often hard to see some of our most talented actors in this isolated, most intense form. Eric Bogosian's latest labor of love, which goes by the self-explanatory name of 100Monologues.com is here to remedy that, at least partly. In these one hundred sometimes hilarious, sometimes tragic but always revealing monologues written by the three-time Obie award winner and performed by his posse of A-List actors, you get glimpses into his psyche and that of performers that you may never get elsewhere. The themes presented will be familiar to Bogosi ...

Eight Holiday TV Movies That Should Air in 2016
Huffington Post - about 1 year
When December's shopping and baking are done and it's time to relax over cookies and TV, we usually turn to feature films like Elf or A Christmas Carol. We might even look for I Love Lucy or Honeymooners Yuletide episodes or check out the newest holiday specials. But television has been producing its own seasonal movies, hundreds of them, ever since the small screen was actually small. They run the gamut from brilliant to awful, but even some of the trashiest can be as sweet and comforting as cocoa on the first chilly night of the year. The problem is that so many new films materialize each year while older ones tend to disappear quickly. And unlike movies released in theaters, too few resurface on DVD, Hulu or Netflix. So I'm starting next year's Christmas list early. Here are eight holiday TV movies, in no special order, that I've enjoyed in the past and hope to see once more. They're only the first to occur to me, so I'm likely to make additional requests in the future. And ...

Fall Preview: Behind the Scenes of Toni Collette and Dylan McDermott's Hostages
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
Toni Collette and Dylan McDermott are filming a tense exchange in front of a gleaming medical complex. Collette plays renowned thoracic surgeon Ellen Sanders, but her companion, Duncan Carlisle (McDermott), is no healer. The doc's desperate and wily attempts to honor her Hippocratic oath while saving her family form the heart of the show. When I first heard about Hostages, Nachmanoff says of the show, which is based on an Israeli TV project, it sounded like a cable idea - ordinary people thrust into an extraordinary situation, like Breaking Bad's Walter White or Weeds' Nancy Botwin. McDermott, who played dark on the first two seasons of FX's American Horror Story, happily fulfills the antihero role. Where Ellen's motivations are clear, Duncan's are murky, and the actor will share only that "there are powerful reasons why he's part of a conspiracy to kill the president." When the show opens, he's an FBI hostage negotiator at a bank robbery, and the next time you see him, he's t ...

Mischa Barton: I Hope Everyone Doesn't Start Watching 'The O.C.' Again
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Many stars of "The O.C." spent last week celebrating the Fox teen drama's 10th anniversary with videos, tweets and interviews, but Mischa Barton, who played leading lady Marissa Cooper on the series, wasn't exactly joining in. "I was like, 'I hope everyone doesn’t start watching it again!'" the actress, now 27, told Us Weekly of the anniversary. Some might guess that Barton's feelings toward "The O.C." have to do with the fact that her character was killed off at the end of Season 3, which turned out to be the series' penultimate season. But "The O.C." creator Josh Schwartz told The Huffington Post in a 10th anniversary interview last week that there was no bad blood over Marissa's death, which he called "the biggest thing that ever happened on the show." "It was a hundred percent a creative decision for the show and it was born out of both feeling creatively like it was the direction the show needed to head and also, quite frankly, a function of needing to do somet ...

Tate Donovan Slams 'O.C.' Cast
Huffington Post - over 3 years
This week has been filled with great memories of "The O.C." as the cast and creator celebrated the 10th anniversary of the teen soap's pilot. But Tate Donovan -- who played Jimmy Cooper on "The O.C." for three years -- has soured the nostalgia fun a bit. In an interview with Vulture, the actor opened up about the difficulty of working with the kids of the Newport Beach. "By the time I started to direct, the kids on the show had developed a really bad attitude," Donovan told Vulture. "They just didn’t want to be doing the show anymore. It was pretty tough; they were very tough to work with. The adults were all fantastic, total pros ... But you know how it is with young actors -- and I know because I was one of them once. When you achieve a certain amount of success, you want to be doing something else. I mean, one of them turned to me and said, 'This show is ruining my film career,' and he had never done a film before. You just can’t help but sort of think that your life ...

Welcome Back To 'The O.C.,' Bitch
Huffington Post - over 3 years
It has been a decade since Ryan Atwood (Benjamin McKenzie) had his first entree into life in "The O.C.," bringing fans of teen soap along for a look at life inside the mansions of Newport Beach. The Fox drama, which premiered on August 5, 2003, was filled with envelope-pushing sexual encounters, Juicy Couture jumpsuits, Death Cab for Cutie, trips to T.J. and much, much more. Josh Schwartz was a day shy of 27 when "The O.C." first hit the airwaves, which made him the youngest TV creator ever and probably, one of the only ones who would admit to penning a highly-acclaimed pilot in his boxer shorts. From the real story behind Mischa Barton's departure to the Cohens' original name, and the missed coupling opportunities to the star who didn't even make it onto "The O.C.'s" first poster, read on to see what Schwartz revealed to The Huffington Post while looking back on "The O.C." 10 years after its debut.

Mischa Barton Is 'Relieved' She's Not In The Tabloids Anymore
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
This August will mark 10 years since the teen drama "The O.C." premiered and catapulted Mischa Barton to fame and tabloid fodder. In the mid-2000s, Barton dominated the pages of the tabloids alongside Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton, but she has faded out of the spotlight in recent years -- something she's quite happy about. In a rare interview with the Daily Beast, the British-born actress, who doesn't even have a personal publicist anymore, says she's happy to have a more-private life these days. “Luckily, [I’m not] so much in the spotlight,” Barton told the website. “The craziness of The O.C. has died down and gone away. I’m so relieved it’s not how it was. It’s not the person. It was the time. Everything was an ‘it’ girl this or “it” girl that. It was just over the top.” Barton made headlines in 2007 after she was arrested on DUI charges (Hilton, Lohan and Nicole Richie were all busted for DUI that year), which was followed by years of reports of "secret rehab" s ...

'Argo' Reviews From Telluride Film Festival Praise Ben Affleck; Oscar Next?
Moviefone Blog - over 4 years
The idea that Ben Affleck's "Argo" could be one of the biggest Oscar contenders of the year should come as little surprise -- and not just because of that gangbusters trailer or Affleck's growing pedigree as a director. Just look at how Warner Bros. handled the release of the thriller, a true story about how the CIA smuggled six Americans out of Iran under the cover of a Hollywood film production during the hostage crisis. First, the studio moved "Argo" from its Sept. 14 release date to the more awards-friendly Oct. 12 calendar slot. Then, Warner Bros. moved its two other potential Oscar-contending dramas, "Gangster Squad" and "The Great Gatsby," into next year. Both shifts were done because of extenuating circumstances -- reshoots stemming from the Aurora murders for "Gangster Squad"; additional effects work and soundtrack production for "The Great Gatsby" -- but if Warner Bros. wasn't so high on "Argo," would either have happened so easily? At this point, it's academic: "Argo" p ...
