NEW YORK, NY March 30, 2017 – AMC announced today an initial lineup of guests set to appear on “Talking with Chris Hardwick,” an extension of the #1 talk show on television, “Talking Dead.”  Guests include (not in air order): Michelle Monaghan, Charlie Hunnam, Connie Britton, Justin Theroux, Bryan Cranston, Elijah Wood, Damon Lindelof, Neil deGrasse Tyson and the cast of “Silicon Valley. Additional guests will be announced soon. “Talking with Chris Hardwick” premieres on Sunday, April 9 at 11:00 p.m.

Compared with a typical 5 or 10-minute talk show interview, “Talking with Chris Hardwick” will leverage the host’s gift for deep conversation, on display in his popular podcast. The show will also have a strong social media presence and live audience interactivity, giving fans a new destination to celebrate their favorite pop culture icons.

“Talking with Chris Hardwick” airs at 11 p.m. on Sunday nights when “The Walking Dead” and “Fear the Walking Dead” are not in season. The series is executive produced by Hardwick, Michael Davies, Brandon Monk, Jen Patton and Brillstein Entertainment Partners’ Alex Murray.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl – Day 1 of Doomed Friendship!

me and earl - My Mom Made Me Do It

As good a movie as The Fault in Our Stars was, it was still a movie in which dying was gauzy and romantic and the leads fell in love and went to Amsterdam.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is almost the exact opposite of that.

Jesse Eiseneberg Action Hero Trailer: American Ultra

Mike (Jesse Eisenberg) is the prototypical stoner/convenience store clerk – or so it seems. When a CIA agent (Connie Britton) makes a purchase while spouting what sounds to Mike like gibberish, his first response is, ‘Is that a lyric from something?’

But when he catches two guys messing with his car, suddenly he’s Jason Bourne – and the guys messing with car (CIA agents, WTF?) are dead. When he tells his girlfriend, Phoebe (Kristen Stewart), her first response is ‘That’s awesome.’ (Clearly she doesn’t believe him.)

Now Mike and Phoebe are in a situation – life, death, the future of the world at stake, yadda-yadda-yadda.

American Ultra was written by Max Landis (Chronicle) and directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X). It opens on August 21st. Check out the trailer after the jump.

Endearing Trailer: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl!

My & Earl - Me & Earl

Me and Earl and the Dying girl won both the Judges and audience Prizes at Sundance this year. The tale of Greg – who simply seeks to get through high school senior year anonymously but is pressured by his mom to speak to a girl he hasn’t spoken to since kindergarten – looks to be charming, offbeat, funny and maybe a wee bit poignant.

Check out the trailer after the jump. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl opens on June 12th.

American Horror Story’s Larry The Burn Guy Is Living A Lie! Denis O’Hare Opens Up!

On last week’s episode of American Horror story [FX, Wednesdays, 10/9C], we learned that the horribly disfigured Larry Harry – aka Larry the Burn Guy – had been lying to Ben Harmon from the beginning.

Shortly thereafter, I had the opportunity to take part in a conference call Q&A with the actor who plays Larry, Denis O’Hare. He talked about the revelation, teased further developments and discussed how he approaches the role.

Scary Stuff, Kids! Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott Talk American Horror Story!

AMERICAN HORROR STORY: L-R: Connie Britton as Vivien Harmon and Dylan McDermott as Ben Harmon in AMERICAN HORROR STORY airing on FX. CR: Robert Zuckerman.

FX’s American Horror Story [Wednesdays, 10/9C] is the network’s most unexpected hit – a dark, twisted, haunted house tale with more creepiness than any television series since Twin Peaks – and more scares per square inch than anything since American Gothic.

On Friday, I had the opportunity to take part in a teleconference Q&A session with the show’s stars, Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott. They happily [and candidly] talked about their involvement with the show; were careful about teasing too much, and told us about their own real-life brushes with the supernatural.
