The Slow Erosion of the TV vs. Movie Actor Class System

I know you’re supposed to let a movie draw you into its narrative without excess baggage, and its characters should exist only as themselves and so on, but I had an odd moment of external realization when I first saw About Alex (which is out this week on DVD, and is pretty good). The scene comes about six minutes into this junior Big Chill, and there’s nothing earth-shattering about it as a scene; Siri (Maggie Grace) meets Josh (Max Greenfield) and Sarah (Aubrey Plaza) at the train station to drive them to the cabin where they and several other old friends are spending the weekend. But as the three characters embraced and reconnected, something in the back of my head whispered, “Look, it’s Schmidt and April Ludgate meeting up with Shannon from Lost.” And no, that didn’t make this scene the culmination of some sort of weird TV fan fiction; it merely accentuated, with a rare bit of clarity, how much the game has changed for actors, in terms of the transition from TV to film (and back). … Read More

Flavorwire’s 2014 Primetime Emmy Picks and Predictions

The 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards airs tonight at 9pm. You’d be forgiven if this catches you off guard; it’s about a month earlier than usual due to football, and it’s airing on a Monday, as if NBC was worried about the overlap between Emmys and MTV Video Music Awards viewers (but really because of how early Labor Day is this year). If you’re unprepared, there’s no need to worry! Flavorwire has you covered with a list of all the nominees in the big categories, our (mostly) informed predictions, and even our personal picks. Even if we’re wrong, we’ll still get a night of tipsy celebrities, meandering acceptance speeches, and awkward topical humor. We’re all winners! … Read More

10 Charming Fan Letters From Cultural Icons

Last night, as you’re well aware, the fourth season of Game of Thrones came to a close, and everyone went bananas. And perhaps, somewhere, some future literary superstar penned a fan letter to George R.R. Martin, telling him what an inspiration his work is. It’s not too much of a stretch — presumably in preparation for the finale, iO9 dug up that great fan letter that young Master Martin wrote to Marvel’s Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, raving over the greatness of a recent Fantastic Four issue. Such a missive is a blast to read now; it’s also but one example of the fine tradition of superstars who reveal themselves (either before their own fame or after it) to be super-fans. … Read More
