During a recent interview with Superstore actors Lauren Ash and Mark McKinney, I asked them to name their favorite films. Ash picked Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and McKinney chose the French comedy La Cage Aux Folles (later remade as the Robin Williams and Nathan Lane feature The Birdcage). Check out the video below!
In this installment of Flick City we have Chicago Fire actress Kara Killmer discussing her love for the Tom Hanks feature Apollo 13. I also added a video of Killmer recounting some of the jobs she worked before landing steady work as an actress. Videos are below!
It was a great movie weekend for me, as I finally checked out Koreeda’s Shoplifters and also followed Patton Oswalt’s advice to watch Akira Kurosawa’s Ikiru and, as of this moment, it’s one of my all time favorite films. Check out the video below as Oswalt talks about the three movies that will make you rethink your life!!
This Is Us actor Milo Ventimiglia has also carved out a career in cinema (he was most recently seen opposite Jennifer Lopez in Second Act). In the video below, he talks about three of his favorite films (Interstellar, Goodfellas, Armageddon).
This is a total first regarding my requisite “name one of your favorite movies” questions, as Brooklyn Nine-Nine actress Stephanie Beatriz picked The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part as her choice!
Ever want to have a drink where everybody knows your name, at least in San Diego? The West Coast set Abby’s centers on a Marine vet (Natalie Morales, playing the titular role) who may have found her calling by opening up a bar in her backyard. A simple twist of fate can lead someone down an entirely different career path, and Morales explains how one simple class was a life changer.
I’ve already posted video of Gina Torres and Bethany Joy Lenz discussing their favorite films (Torres digs The Shawshank Redemption and Lenz loves Equilibrium). Pearson co-star Simon Kassianides brought the movie discussion home with his picks of The Princess Bride and The Deer Hunter. Check out the video below!
Kate del Castillo is back as Teresa Mendoza after an eight year layoff on La Reina del Sur. During the NBC Universal press day (aka TCAs), I asked the actress what continues to motivate her. Video is included in the post.
With the series finale of Timeless upon us, I wanted to share an audio clip of Matt Lanter discussing his thoughts on what makes a great script, especially since the show’s bread and butter centered on its writing. Check out the Lanter audio below, as he talks about how being a first time dad has also deepened his acting chops.
