Vanessa Hudgens Talks ‘Powerless’ NBC’s New Superhero Comedy Sitcom

(AOTN) It is not very often that some lightheartedness gets dropped within the DC Universe, however NBC’s new half-hour comedy sitcom “Powerless” is poised to do just that! Set in a world where humanity must cope with the collateral damage of Super Heroes and Super-Villains, Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens) begins her first day as Director of Research & Development for Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises that specializes in products that make defenseless bystanders feel a little safer. Full of confidence and big ideas, Emily quickly learns that her expectations far exceed those of her new boss (Alan Tudyk) and officemates, so it will be up to her to lead the team toward their full potential and the realization that you don’t need superpowers to be a hero.  The series also stars Danny Pudi, Christina Kirk and Ron Funches.

We had a chance to view the pilot episode as well as catch up with “Powerless” star Vanessa Hudgens. This may just be the first time that we have seen a super-hero sitcom and the pilot episode certainly had us cracking a smile several times throughout the episode. Superhero fans will appreciate the tongue-in-cheek references and subtle puns which are smartly used throughout the episode. This is definitely a trend we would like to see continue throughout the series.

It was great to see the superhero/supervillain universe from a different angle being more about the people (or innocent bystanders) that are effected by the shenanigans and destruction caused when supers run array. If the pilot episode is any indication, “Powerless” may border on being hokey, but it was still good fun and we hope that fans will give it a fighting chance.

While out at San Diego Comic Con promoting the series Vanessa Hudgens spoke about her character Emily Locke saying, “She takes pride in what she does and thinks she’s making a difference in the world with one person at a time. She is fed up with the superheroes acting so recklessly in Charm City. She takes a stand for herself and talks back to a superhero. “

Hudgen’s goes to say, “It’s really about her finding her own power as a person”.

When speaking about what excited her about the role, Hudgens tells us, “The fact that it’s DC Comics first comedy is a really cool thing to be a part of and also my favorite TV shows are “Parks and Recreation” and “The Office” which are the workplace comedies that NBC does so well! The fact that it’s going to be under their umbrella makes me so proud.”

Hudgens describes working with Alan Tudyk by saying, “I’m always in such awe when he is working because he’s so smart. That’s the thing with comedians … they are smart people and so quick! He just comes up with these things on the spot and I don’t even understand how your brain goes there in that split second and it comes out, but he’s amazing and such a nice guy. I feel so blessed to be working with such comedic geniuses.”

As she continues to explore the character Hudgens reveals that what she is surprised to learn about herself is “just how hard comedy is”, she says with a laugh. She continues, “It’s not really something I’ve done a lot of. It’s one thing when you are being funny with your friends, but another thing when there’s a massive crew staring at you and waiting for it to all go down so they can go home. I’ve been learning a lot about timing and I treat everyone like I’m a five year old like ‘explain to me why you would do that’ and I’m trying to learn as much as I can.”

When talking with the writers of the series, Hudgens said they asked her what her biggest flaw was and she revealed that she feels she may be too trusting. She says, “I want to trust people so badly and you want to see the best in people!”

Speaking about the tone of “Powerless” in comparison to shows such as “Parks and Recreation” and “The Office” Hudgens comments, “I could only hope they would be similar. It’s the same thing … just your mundane lives working in an office from 9 to 5 and what happens within that, except with our show its set within a world full of superheroes and supervillains. We get to explore that and I feel that it really hasn’t been tapped into at all. What is the reality of living in a world full of superheroes and supervillains?  Like, how about surge pricing for Uber during a battle … you know stuff like that … it’s really funny!”

Hudgens goes on to reveal that acting in “Powerless” is much more of an adult role for her, as she is used to seeing herself as a high school student or a troubled teen runaway who is a drug addict and she says, “It’s nice to play an adult who has her stuff together. It’s the simple things, like walking down a hallway carrying a mug … I was very excited about that!  It’s the little things excite me!”

Hudgens joked saying “I’m still waiting!” when asked if she had a crash course in the massive DC Universe.  She adds, “I would not mind it. I’m sure Comic Con is the right place for someone to give me a lesson.  I was not much of a comic book person growing up. I mean I did go through a phase where I dressed up like Catwoman everyday when I was around six years old.”

We told her that gets her some geek cred to which Hudgens replies, “I still have to do a lot of homework, because if I’m the head of things, I have to know what I’m approving”.  When asked what her hopes are for Emily in the first season, Hudgens tells us, “I hope she learns to stand-up for herself in a way that is a little more politically correct. I think right now she is stumbling around trying to find her power and in doing so, stepping on peoples toes. Which is a really adorable and endearing way to do it! It would be nice if she got a little savvy about it!”

When speaking about her upcoming projects, Hudgens says, “I like to keep things as diverse as possible. As long as I can keep finding things that scare me, I am definitely up for the challenge”.

Mr. Robot Dominates San Diego Comic Con! Exclusive Interview With Actor Christian Slater!

Christain-Slater

(PCM) Talk about a show that has grown in popularity enormously within the last year, even winning a Golden Globe award for Best TV Drama!  The USA Network series Mr. Robot barely had any presence at last year’s San Diego Comic Con, however this year the show was everywhere and fans just couldn’t get enough news and information about just where this amazing series is headed.

In addition to having advertisements for the show splayed across multiple San Diego city buses, pedicabs and walls, we discovered that hidden down a side street in the Gaslamp District there was a small computer repair shop. Once you entered the computer repair shop, you were then escorted down a side passageway prior to entering an exact replica of Elliot’s apartment. It was eerily accurate and once inside you were handed a Samsung Gear VR headset to watch a super exclusive episode of Mr. Robot filmed in 360-degree video. It was amazing and proves that VR is certainly the wave of the future. We won’t give anything about the episode away, but it was a definitely an “altered” experience!

We had a chance to catch up with actor Christian Slater, who plays the elusive Mr. Robot on the series during the show’s Comic Con press room.  When speaking about the negativity that can occur from people that troll the internet, Slater comments that “Contempt prior to investigation, that annoys me.  You can’t hate something without seeing it and that is not something any of us should subscribe to. ”

We mentioned that a few weeks ago some set images popped up revealing perhaps a flashback to Mr. Robot’s family, so of course we were curious to know just what was going on in that particular scene. Slater reveals “Elliot is reminiscing and I’m really excited for you guys to get to see that stuff.  It’s difficult to talk about it because Sam [Esmail] was having a particularly creative moment there I think and it’s going to be interesting to see what you guys think of episode five.”

We jokingly asked Slater what his characters name was in his head to which he replied “That’s a really good question!  On the scripts its’ “Mr. Robot” so when I get the scripts I’m “Mr. Robot”. It’s crazy because when I got the pilot for this show I was like ‘Mr. Robot, what’s this?, Am I going to have little wires and gear boxes on me?’ but I was very grateful and relieved that it was going in a completely different direction.”

When speaking about what initially drew him to the role, Slater comments “It was certainly a world that I didn’t know a great deal about, so it was something very interesting to explore. I had more questions after reading the pilot than I had on any other thing I had done before, so to be able to sit down then after having those questions with somebody like Sam Esmail and Chad Hamilton the producer and have them answer those questions in such a fully detailed manner got me very excited.”

He went on to speak out his attraction to characters who are very anarchist and avant-gard saying “Sure, “Heathers” and “Pump The Volume” and I’ve even heard people describe this as “Pump The Volume” 2.0.” We asked if there was anything he was surprised to learn about himself as an actor while exploring the character of Mr. Robot. Slater tells us “I think so. You know, I’ve certainly been faced with a lot of interesting challenges and again the writing has just given me such an opportunity to have something to really sink my teeth into and I really hadn’t had that feeling in such a long time. The writing is so detailed and so rich and the characters are so beautifully developed it was such an usual experience for a television show and for this to be on USA Network. It’s been an interesting process to be a part of where all these wonderful filmmakers, because this was originally supposed to be a movie, Sam had written it as a movie, to get financing for independent movies has become so difficult, that I am grateful that we have all these other new platforms for all these creative people to be able to tell these fully realized stories.”

Finally we had to know how far in the script he had seen to which Slater revealed “For this season, he had them all written before we started, so we did a read through of every episode in two days, so that put us all the way in. It was a fantastic experience.”

AMC’s The Walking Dead Invades San Diego Comic Con! Exclusive Interviews And Season Seven Premiere Date Revealed!

TWD

(PCM) When we last left our beloved Walking Dead, Rick and his crew were in a pretty pretty perilous situation at the hands of Negan and his beloved friend, a barbed wire bat named “Lucille”.   Season six left us with a major cliffhanger as we were unsure as to which character on the show met their ultimate fate with a smash to the face from Lucille. The wait is almost over as, AMC has revealed that season seven of The Walking Dead will premiere on October 23 at 9:00pm ET/PT. As in previous seasons, the show’s seventh season of 16 episodes will air in two parts, with the first eight episodes kicking off October 23 and the final eight returning February 2017. The season seven trailer made its’ debut during The Walking Dead’s Hall H panel at San Diego Comic Con, you can check it out it all it’s amazing glory below:

We had a chance to catch up with the cast and producers of AMC’ The Walking Dead during their press room at San Diego Comic Con and one of our burning questions was just how hard it has been for all of them to talk about the upcoming season and keep it secret.

Robert Kirkman jokes, “It’s pretty easy to say nothing!”. Sonequa Martin-Green then adds “Even our friends and family try to figure it out. They are following on our social media accounts trying to gather clues about what we are posting with our whereabouts and trying to get us to stumble and say something”.

Scott Gimple acknowledges that the show took a big risk leaving such a massive cliffhanger at the end of season six and of course knew that many fans would be angered. He commented “You have to respect the reaction no matter what but I think it’s important not to be afraid.”

When speaking about the big death that we all know is inevitable Greg Nicotero commented that the biggest challenge was “how brutal, unexpected and senseless” it was going to be.  He felt the producers had some very big expectations to live up to and it was going “change the direction or course” for all the survivors.  It is always difficult to change up the entire landscape of a cast. Dave Alpert said it best when he commented “If a character is killed off and it doesn’t hurt or affect anybody then we are not doing our job.”

We also wondered just how hard it was for Steven Yuen, who plays Glenn to have to remain hidden for quite a long time before it was revealed that his character did not perish during the infamous dumpster scene. He commented “During the dumpster time, that was pretty much because I was literally just holed up in the apartment. I gave me a lot of time to think because when you do sign on for a show that is long running, in this day and age you’re not just signing up to be an actor in a show, but signing up for a particular lifestyle to a degree.  I rarely came out, just for a month, but it was new to me”.

TWD2

Greg Nicotero revealed that  “it’s natural progression as we move through the story line to introduce a lot of these characters from the comic book and there will definitely be some surprises for sure.” He went on to say that right now it is all about Ezekiel and Shiva as a new characters  … and of course a CGI tiger.” For those that are curious as to why the show decided to use CGI for the tiger, the show runners told us it was more humane and having a real life tiger on set would be truly terrifying.

Nicotero also pointed out to us that that comics have always been a good roadmap for the direction of the show, however that does not mean that they can’t deviate from time to time. Some changes will be made in regards to Ezekiel, the Hilltop colony and their war against Negan, however we are left to wonder just how those changes will play out.

The group was very overconfident when it came to taking on Negan and his group, however as we all saw in the finale that confidence was diminished very quickly when the group discovered what kind of fate was laid out before time. Steven Yuen says “You see these characters the most scared than they’ve ever been”. Michael Cudlitz adds “It almost felt as we, as characters, were experiencing just how bad things truly were in real time, right along side the audience. Danai Gurira concludes that the groups overconfidence was “based on the fact that we’ve gotten over so much in the past and we are very agile mentally with our strategies and we all have different strengths.”

If you have ever noticed while watching an episode of the The Walking Dead, the season always seems to be spring or summer. We have very rarely if at all seen these characters dealing with any other climate elements. We posed the questions about whether or not we would ever seen winter time in the series to which Scott Gimple replied “I make no promises but I would be shocked if we didn’t. It would be special if we did.”  Robert Kirkman added “If we can CGI a tiger, than I am sure we can do something with snow”.

Obviously, Lauren Cohen who plays Maggie on the show couldn’t reveal a lot about her characters pregnancy and the final outcome (believe me, we tried) she did however speak about the idea behind dealing with pregnancy during an apocalypse situation saying “I think the lesson that I take from character progression and what we see on the show is there will be suffering and that is inevitable.” She went on to reveal that she feels Maggie needed to experience those types of situations to be where she is now and that is what has shaped her into the person she has become.

TWD3

Love him or hate him, we are certainly going to be seeing a ton of Negan this coming season and actor Jeffery Dean Morgan says that he fully expects to greeted by a “sea of middle fingers” come Comic Con next year.  He did however reveal that he was “fully embraced by everyone on the set and they made him feel like one of the family from day one”.  He did comment that things get “very weird” on set when Negan is around, however everyone acts with complete professionalism.

AMC also announced that there will be two “The Walking Dead” special programming events hosted by Chris Hardwick. A “The Walking Dead Season 7 Preview Special,” which will give fans an early look at what to expect in the upcoming season, including exclusive interviews with the cast and executive producers and behind-the-scenes moments, premieres Sunday, August 14 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.  A two-hour “The Walking Dead” Recap Special”, a retrospective on the series’ acclaimed six seasons, premieres Sunday, October 16 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
