Titus Welliver On ‘Bosch’, Broadening The Scope And Shooting In LA – Awardsline
"The one thing now that speaks volumes about the books is that I can read them on airplanes or on the beach, but I can't read those books the way I read other books in bed at night before I go to sleep, because I can't stop reading them until they are done," says Titus Welliver of Michael Connelly's best selling Harry Bosch novels.

‘Horace And Pete’: How Louis C.K. Landed An All-Star Cast – Emmys
Horace and Pete was one of 2016’s nicer surprises, a bittersweet, working class dramedy made in secret by creator-star Louis C.K. and debuted to almost no fanfare on his website earlier this year. But one of the biggest surprises was the stellar cast he assembled to star with him, including Steve Buscemi, Alan Alda, Edie Falco, Steven Wright, Kurt Metzger, and Jessica Lange.
Not bad for a production C.K. funded himself.
At a recent Awardsline screening for Horace and Pete… Read
Liev Schreiber On ‘Ray Donovan’: “L.A. Is One Of Those Places You Can Hide In Plain Sight” – Awardsline
“In some ways, Ray Donovan is about how difficult it is for a man—a grown man—in our society," suggests Liev Schreiber of the acclaimed Showtime series about the elite Hollywood fixer. "Of course, this character was created by a woman, and the idea of what we as a society see as a real man is a completely prehistoric idea.

J.J. Abrams & Bridget Carpenter On ‘11.22.63’: “It’s The Ultimate What If” – Awardsline
When Stephen King first approached J.J. Abrams to adapt his novel 11/22/63 for the screen, King had a film in mind. Abrams had other ideas. "When he asked, my first reaction was, 'Yes.'" Abrams says. "My second reaction was, 'Would you be open to doing this not as a film, but for television, in whatever form?’" The limited series that emerged from this collaboration was thanks in no small part to exec producer and writer Bridget Carpenter who adapted the book. Carpenter (F… Read

Juno Temple On Working With Scorsese And Jagger On ‘Vinyl’
When Juno Temple joined the cast of HBO's Vinyl, she'd previously worked mostly in independent film and hadn't really considered television. "It was the first time I've ever auditioned for TV actually," Temple says. "I read it and I don't know, it felt kind of like a rite of passage. I really wanted to fight for the role."

"And so, I don't feel the pressure that say a Breaking Bad or a Game Of Thrones or a Lost or Walking Dead feels, when they're ending seasons or series,” the showrunner adds of how his finale might be… Read
