Zak Knutson’s Supercon is a caper comedy set around the world of the fan conventions, in which a group of not incredibly successful actors and comic book artists get fired from the titular con and decide to get even by stealing the money that belongs to the con’s boss and to a former star who is actually just a jerk. Clancy Brown plays the film’s main antagonist Adam King, an actor who is quite full of himself. Once he arrives at the convention, he charges the fans huge amounts of money for a photo or an autograph, bullies his ex TV co-star Keith Mahar (Russell Peters), and in general just acts like an arrogant, greedy prick who evidently doesn’t care at all about pop culture nor his admirers. Clancy Brown himself is the total opposite of his character Adam King, as he remains humble and laughs at the very idea that fans of cult cinema might consider him as a true legendary character actor. But just look at some of the highlights from Mr. Brown’s prolific … [Read more...] about Interview: Clancy Brown Talks SUPERCON, BUCKAROO BANZAI and ’80s Nostalgia

ENTERTAINMENT 04/25/2018 03:06 pm ET Bruce Miller talks Me Too, race in Gilead and why "The Handmaid's Tale" will never be torture porn. By Emma Gray “The road to hell is a lot scarier when you realize you had this chance to get off of it at some point, and you didn’t recognize it,” Bruce Miller, showrunner of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” told me. It was hard not to wonder whether he was talking about the fictional world of Gilead or America in 2018. “The Handmaid’s Tale” ― a show that can feel terrifyingly on-the-nose ― is set in a brutal dystopian future in which childbearing women’s bodies are treated as reproductive hosts for the theocratic society’s most powerful (cis, white, male, Christian) leaders.

The red carpet statement was pointed. Powerful. And it had nothing to do with a black dress. While being interviewed at the Golden Globes in January by an E! host, Debra Messing called out E! for failing to pay its stars equally. “I was so shocked to hear that E! doesn’t believe in paying their female co-host the same as their male co-host,” Messing said, her voice clear and strong. “I miss Catt Sadler. So we stand with her. And that’s something that can change tomorrow. “We want people to start having this conversation that women are just as valuable as men.” Like her fellow actors on the red carpet that night, Messing was wearing black — part of a coordinated response to the onslaught of sexual assault stories in Hollywood and beyond. But Messing’s message had a different kind of power. She had broken the unspoken rules of the red carpet. She had dared to be impolite. It looks like the red carpet at this weekend’s Academy … [Read more...] about Why the Oscars red carpet needs more feminism: ‘This is not the year to talk fashion’
