NUP_179501_0132.JPGMandy Moore first entered the public eye in 1999, when her song Candy became a Top 40 hit. Since then, she’s diversified her career portfolio — not only has she had hit singles and toured the world as a music artist, but she’s become quite an accomplished actress as well. Nothing she’s done, however, has resonated with audiences the way This Is Us has. The NBC drama has been a critical hit and a cultural phenomenon, so it’s not surprising that Moore told us it’s the best job she’s ever had. (Click on the media bar below to hear Mandy Moore)

The second season of This Is Us premieres next Tuesday night at 9/8c on NBC.

The list of characters Harrison Ford has played in the last decade reads suspiciously like the list of characters he played in the first decade of his career. In addition to the Star Wars and Indiana Jones revivals featuring his iconic characters Han Solo and Indiana Jones, he’ll soon be seen once again as Rick Deckard in Blade Runner: 2049. Obviously, Ford doesn’t have a problem with revisiting old characters, but he told us he wouldn’t have done it if the writers and producers hadn’t found a way to make the old character’s new story fresh and compelling.

Ford stars with Ryan Gosling in Blade Runner: 2049, which opens in theaters on October 6.

147635_8907Former NFL All-Pro wide receiver Terrell Owens is no stranger to performing in front of a large audience. He spent 14 seasons playing in packed stadiums and was watched by more than 50 million people when he played in Super Bowl XXXIX. So dancing in front of a live studio audience should be a breeze, right? He thinks so, but his Dancing With The Stars partner, Cheryl Burke, reminds him that things are a little different on the show — especially when it comes to the wardrobe! (Click on the media bar below to hear Terrell Owens & Cheryl Burke)

Dancing With The Stars airs Monday nights at 8/7c on ABC.

wonderstruck1Delving into the past is part of director Todd Haynes’ (Carol, Velvet Goldmine, I’m Not There) storytelling style, and he follows suit with his latest film Wonderstruck.

Penned by Brian Selznick (from his own bestselling novel), Wonderstruck is set in two time periods (1927 and 1977). After his mother’s (Michelle Williams) passing, Ben (Oakes Fegley) goes on a quest to find a father he has never known. Fifty years earlier, a child named Rose (Millicent Simmonds) goes searching for an actress (Julianne Moore) she admires.

It’s great to see Haynes and Moore reunite after their successful collaborations on Safe and Far From Heaven. The Wonderstruck trailer has a similar wistful tone to Haynes’ Citizen Kane-ish homage Velvet Goldmine, and the film has already received great word of mouth. Whether or not David Bowie approved of Velvet Goldmine, it’s a wonderful touch to have the seminal track “Space Oddity” in the trailer.

Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!

Wonderstruck hits theaters October 20th via Amazon Studios and Roadside Attractions.

NUP_178465_0423.JPG

Though she did appear in pivotal episodes on last season’s Chicago P.D., Tracy Spiridakos is still a relative newbie to the show. With Det. Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush) leaving her job and securing a deal to work with the FBI (a trade-off to keep her troublesome mother out of jail), no-nonsense cop Det. Hailey Upton (Spiridakos) is up for the challenge.

The One Chicago family will often have crossover episodes and characters weave in and out of each other’s respective series, and this dynamic has led to a tight knight community. “The Dick Wolf family has been a very warm one,” said Spiridakos. “We walk past all the other trailers for Chicago Fire and Chicago Med and the cast and everybody else will come out and I’m the new one so they’ll (say) ‘Hey nice to meet you’ and introduce themselves. All around - just genuinely all of them are wonderful. Everyone is so sweet and my experience has been great.”

Click on the media bar to hear Spiradakos explain how she relates to the “thrill” aspect Det. Hailey Upton:



Season five of Chicago P.D., which also features the return of Jon Seda as Det. Antonio Dawson, returns Wednesday September 27 on NBC (10/9c).

BATTLE OF THE SEXES

Steve Carell knows a thing or two about working on non-fiction narratives (The Big Short, Foxcatcher) and with Battle of the Sexes he plays showman and tennis star Bobby Riggs. Emma Stone co-stars as his opponent Billie Jean King, and their match would be one of tennis’ most popular matches.

“There’s that public persona and then there’s this guy that no one really knew,” said Carell. “I remember watching, which I started doing research, there’s this great 60 Minutes interview with him and he’s doing his thing. He’s playing his character. It’s this spiel. But then the conversation came around to his wife and talking about how they recently separated . . . even within all of that bravado and that crazy over the top nature of his, you can see the pain he was suffering through. To me, that was sort of the root that I was going for.”

Along with the challenge of delving into the interior life of Riggs, Carell actually let his hair grow for Battle of the Sexes. Click on the media bar below to hear a funny Carell story about his hair raising experience on Battle of the Sexes:


Battle of the Sexes opens nationwide September 29.

NUP_179837_0015.jpgTo capture the correct look for HBO’s gritty drama The Deuce, the producers went to great pains to recreate the solemn, seedy-looking streets of New York City’s infamous porn community back in the 1970s. James Franco, who stars in and produces the show, is also directing episodes, and he told us they’ve been obsessive about finding ways of making today’s Big Apple look like it did back then. (Click on the media bar below to hear James Franco)

The Deuce airs Sunday nights at 9/8c on HBO.

Grant ShowConsidering that the original Dynasty was unusually forthright in dealing with issues like race and sexuality during its 1980s run, we can certainly expect the reboot to be right at the forefront of controversial diversity and cultural issues. This time around, Grant Show is playing the role of patriarch Blake Carrington, and he says that since things are a lot different now than they were 30 years ago, his character will be dealing with those issues in different ways this time around. (Click on the media bar below to hear Grant Show)

Dynasty premieres Wednesday, October 11 at 9/8c following Riverdale on The CW.
