‘Timeless’ EP Eric Kripke On The Moment He Realized He Was Telling A James Bond Story — AwardsLine Screening Series

“That's what's so interesting about the show, is all of these storylines, and all of the historical components are really reflections, and a mirror to the characters finding out more about themselves,” Timeless star Abigail Spencer reflected last night, discussing the human element behind NBC’s time travel drama. “It's really just a journey for each of these human beings to find out what they're made of, and what they're not made of—their mettle, and their foibles, and… Read

Sarandon and Lange in Feud: Bette and Joan

In the finale of Feud: Bette and Joan, infamous rivals Joan Crawford and Bette Davis sweetly apologized to each other–a scene that apparently never happened in real life. The latest of Ryan Murphy's anthologies, Feud in this first season follows the two Hollywood legends as they 'age out' of their acting careers and battle each other for supremacy, set against the backdrop of making their only film together–Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. However, the finale wasn't a case… Read

In film and television, it’s common to see characters at various ages and stages of their lives, portrayed by different actors—but, in the vein of Barry Jenkin’s Moonlight, it’s much less common to see multiple iterations of a character, each as fully realized as the next.

In the dystopian near-future reality the series presents, the United States comes under the rule of Gilead, a totalitarian and Christian fundamentalist government which subjugates women, depriving them of their rights, their freedoms and even their names… Read
