Corey Stoll Talks The Strain Season 2 And More At SDCC!

(PCM) Ever since the first episode of The Strain premiered we have found ourselves hooked to the epic FX drama. We caught up with actor Corey Stoll who plays the character of Ephraim Goodweather in the series at San Diego Comic Con 2015.

Stoll has been incredibly busy these days with various projects that include the role of Darren Cross/Yellowjacket in Marvel’s hit film “Ant-Man”and an upcoming role in Gillian Flynn’s “Dark Place” playing the brother to actress Charlize Theron. He was also recently seen in both “Homeland” and “House Of Cards”.

When discussing the direction of his character in season two of The Strain Stoll says “Last season, I was the resident skeptic and I was the last person to believe what everyone else in New York all ready knew. When we start season two, that’s gone. I’m still skeptical about some of the mythological basis behind what is going on and the stories Setrakian is telling me, but I believe there are vampires and I believe there is a Master that controls them and I believe they can use telepathy. But, I’m still using some kind of science based methodology to defeat them. I haven’t give up on the idea of a cure for the virus perhaps something that kills them, but doesn’t kill people. Almost like a bioweapon of sorts.”

When discussing his character’s downward spiral this season Stoll reveals, “You try to hold off as long as possible. You try to play each scene for the reality of what it is, where you are and not to prefigure the darkness that’s going to come. At the end of last season my character begins to drink again and instead of making it some kind of moralistic thing when I go into this spiral and I have to quit cold turkey, he drinks and he is self-medicating, but it is sort of working for him. It is making him a little bit more tolerable and it helps him to actually see some humor in the horror that’s around him.

There will definitely be consequences to pay for that and that is something that I really like about the show in general is its’ lack of puritanical moralism that a lot of horror has, for example the virgin always lives, the girl who sleeps around always dies first, so it’s good to kind of go away from that and we have Guillermo to thank for our twisted post-Catholic world.

Stoll told us that he has read the books and he knows where the character goes in the books, but this is clearly not the books. Carlton Cuse had said before that eighty percent of this season is exclusive to this series and is not from the book and he assumes that is going to be the case going forward. Stoll comments “If you read the books, that’s great because you have a sense of what the world is that we are living in and you know who some of the characters are, but the show really is its’ own thing. I have an idea of where Eph could go, but he could totally go in a different direction which is exciting. ”

Tune into an all-new episode of The Strain this Sunday at 10pm only on FX!

Gus and Vaun wage an attack on Palmer as Eph struggles to connect with Zack. Councilwomen Justine Faraldo vows to bring her extermination policies to the other boroughs.

Sharknado Week Is Coming Soon! Hear All About It From The Cast At SDCC!

(PCM) Sharks, more sharks – and tarantulas! Syfy’s second annual Sharknado Week (July 18-25) will showcase seven original wild and gory movies featuring heroes such as Ian Ziering, Steve Guttenberg, Casper Van Dien, and Danny Trejo battling bloodthirsty creatures and saving humanity.

Sharknado Week will be highlighted by the eagerly anticipated premiere of the global pop culture sensation Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! on Wednesday, July 22nd at 9PM (ET/PT).

While out at San Diego Comic Con we caught up with Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! stars Ian Ziering and Tara Reid to talk about what is on the forecast!

Ian-Ziering

 

When asked where he would like to take a Sharknado in the future Ziering tells us “that is such a hard questions as there are some many wonderful coastal cities around the world, but definitely Tokyo or parts of Asia would be amazing”.  He also told us his thoughts on why sharks have become such a pop culture phenomenon saying “They have been for quite some time. As we learn more and more about them the curse of the shark is getting lifted. They are better understood and are very intelligent creatures. With anything new there is always excitement and Shark Week has been going on for quite some time now and that brought about a resurgence of interest in the mid-90’s with new research. Sharknado pokes fun at all that coincidentally, but well-timed.”

Ziering also says that working with David Hasselhoff on Sharknado was an awesome experience as well and that he was a “great guy”.

Tara-Reid

Actress Tara Reid says that her initial thoughts on Sharknado 3 were “how are they ever going top the last ones, but they definitely came up with a truly amazing script and it is going to be incredibly entertaining”.  She goes on to say that having an iconic actress like Bo Derek play her mother was truly amazing and that audiences are going to be surprised by some of what they will see in Sharknado 3.

When asked why Sharknado resonates well with viewers Reid says ” I think it is the craziness of it all. Just the whole concept of tornadoes and sharks and the absurdity. You just say it and you laugh, but what makes it is that we are playing it straight.”

Catching Up With Bryan Cranston For Supermansion at SDCC

(PCM) It was a super busy weekend at this year’s San Diego Comic Con so we were thrilled to catch television’s streaming network Crackle’s debut appearance at this year’s Con with Supermansion and chat with executive producer and voice actor Bryan Cranston.

“SuperMansion” follows the adventures of Titanium Rex (voiced by Cranston, who’s also the series’ executive producer) as he struggles to live with and fight alongside the Millennial-aged, often lackadaisical members of The League of Freedom. During the Comic-Con panel, Crackle revealed the series’ brand-new characters and voice cast, led by Titanium Rex and featuring Black Saturn (voiced by Gilmore), American Ranger (Keegan-Michael Key), Brad (Root), Cooch (Gardner) and Robobot/The Groaner (Wells).

When speaking with Cranston he revealed that what got him interested in the project was “it was more than just superheros and villains, but the fact that they all live under the same roof and have to deal with each other and personal space. It is like a dorm room, for example who’s not cleaning up after themselves or who has personal hygiene problems.”

He goes on to say “You have this whole world of fighting villains and such and then you have this real world that everyone can relate to in one way or another. It’s relatable in that way because audience are saying ‘hey, they are going through the same sh*t I have to deal with, and yet they are superheros!”

When asked about similarities between him and his character Cranston jokingly replies “I can fly!”

Supermansion will debut on Crackle this fall, but for now check out the teaser trailer below:

The Voice Names Chris Martin As Key Adviser For The Battles: Round Two

Chris-Martin1(NBC) NBC’s Emmy Award-winning musical-competition series “The Voice” has confirmed Coldplay frontman Chris Martin as the key adviser for the current season. As part of a new format change, Martin will serve as a mentor for the artists on each of the four teams, a “Voice” first.

Coldplay, which formed in 1997, has sold more than 60 million copies of their five No. 1 albums. Coldplay’s sixth studio album, “Ghost Stories,” is set for a May 19 global release.

The newly created The Battles: Round Two will begin Monday, March 31 and pit the remaining artists from each team—all previous winners and stolen artists—against one another to perform an agreed-upon song. Both artists will sing for their coach’s approval in hopes of moving forward to the Playoff Rounds.

Martin advised each of the The Battles: Round Two performers on vocal techniques, stage presence and the importance of tailoring songs to fit their persona and strengths. These artists will continue to try and earn the support of their respective coaches, who will be forced to decide who will move on to the Playoff Rounds. Each coach will have the opportunity to strategically steal one more artist in this round.

The Live shows begin Monday, April 21. The top 12 artists will compete each week and the at-home audience will vote to save their favorite artists. In addition, during each Live results show, the three artists with the lowest number of votes will be eligible for the “Instant Save.” These artists will each perform a new song that represents why they should earn the save. Then, America will have the opportunity to save their favorite performer by tweeting out #VoiceSave along with the artist’s name. The two singers with the lowest number of votes will be sent home each week until one winner is announced as “The Voice” on May 20th.

The CONSTANTINE pilot is executive produced by Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist, Dexter) and David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight films, Man of Steel). Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) is directing from a teleplay by Daniel Cerone, with story by Daniel Cerone & David S. Goyer.
