A Brief History Of Steve Jobs In Film
Huffington Post - over 2 years
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Apple co-founder Steve Jobs became renowned for conjuring a "reality distortion field" that made people believe whatever he wanted. If he were still around, it's easy to imagine that Jobs would be summoning all his powers of persuasion to protect a legacy that's getting muddied with each cinematic take on his fascinating life. "Steve Jobs," which opened Friday, is the latest movie to examine a charismatic visionary who mesmerized the masses with his trendsetting gadgets while alienating his subordinates and friends with an almost-inhumane cruel streak. It's the second movie about a Silicon Valley icon written by Aaron Sorkin, who won an Academy Award in 2011 for "The Social Network," a dramatization of the friends and enemies that Mark Zuckerberg made while building Facebook into an Internet power. Zuckerberg, now 31, ridiculed that movie as mostly fiction and publicly lamented, "I just wished that nobody made a movie of me while I was still alive." ...

Ask Matt: Mom & Laugh Tracks, Dexter and Broadchurch Finales
Seattle Pi - over 4 years
Why do sitcoms insist on using these horrible laugh tracks still? I found it so distracting it took away from any viewing pleasure. Funny you bring this up, as I was recently chastised by a star/producer for disparaging a show's "laugh track," reminded in no uncertain terms that shows like these are filmed in front of a live studio audience. Look at the ratings for The Big Bang Theory, the best current practitioner of this most classic form of TV comedy, from the same producer of Mom and with the same screaming soundtrack. Many of these shows are more theatrical in feel and joke-driven, but I laugh out loud just as often watching filmed comedies like The Middle, Modern Family, early-year 30 Rock and the parts of Parks and Recreation that don't involve Tom Haverford. While I understand the audience (not always canned) laughter is a deal-breaker for some, it's a part of TV tradition and history that I acknowledge and honor, when the show lives up to it. During the final two seas...

Ill Communication
The Portland Mercury - over 4 years
Jobs is like if The Social Network somehow received a traumatic head injury. by Paul Constant THERE ARE TWO very distinct sides of Steve Jobs that any actor needs to understand before they can begin to get the man right. The first side is the salesman, the showman, the unctuous Stan-Lee-meets-Thomas-Edison hyperbolic charmer who can show you a hunk of plastic and glass and make you believe it can turn you into a better person. The second side is the genius who can take very complex computer-science concepts and translate them into something that the average American can understand. In the new biopic Jobs, Ashton Kutcher manages to nail one side of the Apple co-founder: He's a gifted con artist who sells himself as a willful visionary, and his aggressive desire to rope his marks into outlandish schemes (say, turning a garage-based startup into a fully functioning computer manufacturer) never come across as mean-spirited. But Kutcher can't convi...

Mark Rubinstein: A Talk with Scott Pratt
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Scott Pratt is the author of the best-selling legal thrillers featuring his protagonist, attorney Joe Dillard. Scott has a B.A. in English and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University Of Tennessee. He practiced primarily criminal defense law over a period of years before he began writing. His latest novel, Conflict of Interest, was released recently. The Joe Dillard series is comprised of five books. Dillard's worked as a criminal defense attorney and a prosecutor -- both sides of the aisle. How come? Does this reflect your ambivalence regarding the law? I did a great deal of criminal defense law, and worked closely with people in the prosecutor's office. My experience has been that prosecutors wanted to win once a case was filed and it got in front of a Grand Jury. It really became much more about winning than about the notion of justice. It was a competition. It's a human experience and everyone in court is competitive, especially those who are drawn to that kind o...

Jason Apuzzo: A Look Behind Steven Spielberg's Falling Skies, One of The Best Sci-Fi Shows in Years
The Huffington Post - over 4 years
Steven Spielberg's Falling Skies has unexpectedly become one of the best sci-fi TV shows in years -- a dark, gritty and emotional look at an American society struggling to survive after an apocalyptic alien invasion. The show's third season debuts on TNT this Sunday, June 9th, one week before Father's Day, which is appropriate, given the show's focus on fathers and their responsibility toward their children. The series has already been a ratings bonanza for TNT -- Falling Skies was last summer's top-rated drama on basic cable -- and having seen the first five episodes of the upcoming season, we can tell you that Season 3 looks to be an even bigger hit. So why would the success of Falling Skies be unexpected, especially given the involvement of executive producer Steven Spielberg and series creator Robert Rodat (Saving Private Ryan)? Possibly because when the show first debuted in the summer of 2011 - the long, hot sci-fi summer that gave us Transformers: Dark of...

'Falling Skies' Star Noah Wyle on Showrunner's Departure: 'It's a Tough One'

By Jethro Nededog LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - It came as a surprise to the "Falling Skies" fandom (and some within TNT) when news that the series' showrunner, Remi Aubuchon, had resigned ahead of Season 3's June 9 premiere date. Aubuchon decided to leave the show after two seasons to pursue his dream of writing a science fiction novel - something that he would be unable to do while on the very challenging show.

Popeater - over 5 years
Malin Akerman's heading to Chatswin! According to TVLine, the actress will play Tessa's (Jane Levy) estranged mother Alex, described as a free-spirited singer/songwriter, on Season 2 of "Suburgatory." “I’m a huge, nerdy fan [of Malin's] and this was an extensive search for the right actress to play such a pivotal role in our show,” series creator Emily Kapnek said. “It turned out to be well worth the wait.
