Center Theatre Group announced the cast for the world premiere of Paul Rudnick’s new play Big Night, running September 10-October 8 at the Kirk Douglas Theatre, with opening night set for September 16.

The cast includes Brian Hutchison (Smokefall), Max Jenkins (NBC’s The Mysteries of Laura), Luke Macfarlane (ABC’s Brothers & Sisters), Wendie Malick (NBC’s Just Shoot Me!), and Tom Phelan (ABC Family’s The Fosters). One more cast member will be announced later.

Directed by Walter Bobbie (Bright Star), the creative team includes John Lee Beatty (set design), William Ivey Long (costume design), Ken Billington (lighting design), James Calleri and Paul Davis (casting), and Brooke Baldwin (stage manager). The sound designer will be announced later.

The play is described as follows in a press release: “It is the night of the Oscars, and a working actor-turned-Oscar nominee knows that his life is about to change — he just doesn’t know how profoundly. His transgender nephew has plans for his speech, his young agent has plans for his future, his unstoppable mother has plans for the catering, and his partner is nowhere to be found.”

Aaron Ashmore and Luke Macfarlane Talk Killjoys S3 + “A Skinner, Darkly” Preview

06/07/2017

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.]

Tomorrow night on Killjoys, Johnny gets himself in way, way, way over his head, Dutch and D’avin audition a few nerds, and we get a VIP first-time meeting.

Nothing in that sentence prepares you for the AWESOMENESS that is Viktoria Modesta going full-on Bond villainess as Niko, a Hackmod with a really, really creepy agenda, or the seriously genius twist that Michelle Lovretta crafted into the episode.

As Johnny Basic and Ollie Ollie Anna (still in love with that) keep working on Clara’s disappearance and thwarting Niko’s mwa ha ha-ing, we’re treated to their fun repartee with a side of some extra-squishy gore, but since it’s mostly green, where does that land on the gore-meter? Maybe make your viewing food choices wisely?

The trio of nerds that Dutch and D’avin put through their paces at the behest of a still delightfully crusty Turin are played by Continuum alumn Erik Knudsen (also on The Mist this week), Luc Trottier, and spoiler alert if you’re not on social media, new recurring cast member Kelly McCormack as Zeph.

I talked to Aaron Ashmore about tonight’s episode and he and Luke Macfarlane about the expanding universe of the show. So far, Johnny’s been the only one to dive into the Hackmod world, and Ashmore says it’s been fantastic to add the new faces because they’re fully-realized characters.

“It’s amazing. There’s nothing worse…it doesn’t happen all the time, but [sometimes on a show], the supporting characters and guest actors come in and don’t step up to the plate or the characters aren’t that interesting or engaging, so they feel like their characters are there just for exposition. In our show, I don’t think that’s the case at all,” he shares.

“In Michelle’s ability to write and create characters that obviously serve a function and are incredibly interesting and three-dimensional, and in the casting of these characters, the actors that our casting directors find for the show are incredible. As an actor getting to see this and knowing when these characters are introduced, we’re going to have someone really, really strong to play with and characters that will allow us as characters to showcase different aspects of our personality, that’s really, really nice.”

“I know we’re going to have good stuff to do and they’re going to have good stuff to do. I think when actors go out for Killjoys, they’re super excited because the characters that are created for them are interesting.”

In tomorrow’s episode, Johnny drops deep down into a Hackmod rabbit hole. “He goes in undercover, and as with many Killjoys missions, things go awry and John ends up in some trouble, but [spoiler alert] he makes it through. I must have pissed the writers off last year at some point because I get beat up and tortured many, many times in Season 3, so this is the first of many John Jaqobi beatdowns,” he laughs.

“John’s always up for pushing the limits and getting his hands dirty. He doesn’t always do it when he’s with Dutch and D’av because they usually go in and do more of the butt-kicking and actual legwork. I don’t think that John is at all afraid to get his hands dirty, especially when he feels like somebody’s in trouble or something needs to get done.”

“I think he’s been forced into this caretaker position so many times. That’s what he falls back on. That’s what he knows. That’s what he does. I think that’s a huge part of who he is–taking care of other people and doing the right thing, and he’s always had to do that.”

As we saw in last week’s premiere, Dutch and D’avin are now working closely with former foes and now frenemies Fancy and Turin. Macfarlane says that’s been a ball, and there’s some truth in the way Fancy and D’av relate to each other. “[Their] dynamic is definitely something that Michelle has in mind. It’s funny, because I adore Sean [Baek] and he’s so great, but we are just the most different people, from the way we approach our work to the way we interact with social media,” he says.

“There’s a kernel of truth in, ‘I don’t get you man, but we’re going to work together.’ I don’t want to give too much away, but I ask for Fancy’s help in a very open and earnest way and I come to his defense and it builds to a really lovely reconciliation, I guess you could say. We’ll see how long that lasts.”

While D’av and Fancy find equal footing, things will be bumpier for D’av and Turin. “They come to a pretty serious head. Turin is going down [a dark path] and some of his tactics are, for lack of a better word, a breach of the Geneva Convention and D’avin is a bit of a moral authority and calls him out on that,” he says.

On the lighter side of things, Macfarlane says Patrick Garrow is very accommodating about all the quips about his fabulous hair, including the “Don’t take your haircut out on me” line in the opener that I was sure had an outtake of Garrow breaking character. “He’s very professional on set. I honestly don’t know how he handles all the insults about his hair,” Macfarlane says. “That’s not the first or last insult [this season].”

Check back in the coming weeks for more from my chats with Ashmore and Macfarlane about Season 3. Killjoysairs Fridays at 10/9c on Syfy in the US and Space in Canada. Here’s a sneak peek of “A Skinner, Darkly.” Pay attention to that title.

WHY WE LOVE THE MEN OF WYNONNA EARP AND KILLJOYS

05/07/2017

Syfy
Syfy

Feminists are not just women. At its core, feminism is advocating for and believing that men and women should have have equal rights and opportunities, and men are just as important to that cause as women. I’ve often praised and held up strong feminist series such as Wynonna Earp and Killjoys for the way they write and deliver multiple layered, diverse, complicated women that serve as the core of their shows. However, one reason these series are such great feminist examples is the way the male characters on both of the shows are written.

Both showrunners, Emily Andras and Michelle Lovretta, are doing something that feels unique with their male characters. The men of Wynonna and Killjoys are written in a way that proves a strong, feminist woman can be at the core of your show, but that she doesn’t necessarily have to persevere despite constant undermining and doubt from the men around her. Instead, male characters can be feminists as well, and lift up these female heroines by treating them as equals and supporting them — emotionally as well as physically. It’s also nice to see Friday night lineup mate Dark Matter, while much more of an ensemble than female-led show, closely follow these ideals as well, often foregoing gender stereotypes in favor of developing well-rounded characters.

Men such as Doc Holliday, Xavier Dolls and the Jaqobis brothers not only want heroines like Wynonna Earp and Dutch to make their own choices, such as facing off against a sister who may have gone to the dark side or a Big Bad who may be her father, but they also trust them completely to do so. To go one step further, even after a decision has been made, these men support their ladies. While Wynonna and Dutch both have some sort of supernatural abilities about them, whether it’s a magical gun or connection to a mystical green plasma, the boys on their teams trust them to wield the power and never once try to rip it away from them. They are perfectly content to admit how much more powerful and well suited for the top spot both Wynonna and Dutch are, and there’s no doubting or not listening when the women are doling out the orders.

Now, just because these male characters fully support the female ones does not mean they don’t have a fully fleshed out storyline of their own, it’s just not THE story. Wynonna Earp and Killjoys’ driving story arcs have always been reserved for Wynonna and Dutch, and rightfully so, as they are the main characters of their respective shows. Doc now owns Shorty’s, Dolls is trying to figure out what exactly he is, D’avin yearns to be more than just the muscle and John has to move on from Pawter. These are all interesting and layered story arcs, but they aren’t taking over the show and crowding out the ladies who, always have plenty of room to take center stage. Wynonna Earp will always be about Wynonna and Killjoys at its core is always about Dutch, these stories from the male characters never overshadow or threaten that concept.

In our society young boys and men are taught to dominate, that power is gained by exerting strength and using it over others. However, the Wynonna and Killjoys men prove that one can still be powerful and masculine even when they cannot overpower the women by their side. Doc Holliday is one of history’s best sharp shooters, yet it’s Wynonna who always takes the final shot. While John and D’avin make up integral parts of the team, at the end of the day the final call is always resting upon Dutch’s shoulders. The men of these two series realize the important aspects they bring to the team. Things like knowing their way around space tech or having a background in tactical operations, are truly valuable skills to have and they give these men a firm grasp on their self esteem in the process. That pride and self worth allows them to admire and appreciate the female characters on their shows without feeling insecure in their own worth as a man.

As is the case with most representation issues on television, the more we see of a certain group of individuals, in this case male feminists, the more likely it is that others will see them too and hopefully, follow their example. Yes, we really love and need characters like Wynonna or Dutch, but it’s also really important to appreciate the Doc Hollidays, the Xavier Dolls and the Jaqobis brothers of the world. A minority cannot get ahead without the support of the majority, and while I’m sorry to make everyone do some math, that’s just the truth.

There’s too many examples in our everyday society of men wanting to rip down, shame and negate a woman who has a little bit of power. Not the men of Wynonna Earp or Killjoys. Hopefully other shows will sit up and take notice that while both these shows are delivering some of the best female characters on the same small screen, their boys aren’t too shabby either. Feminism isn’t just for women and it’s great to see these male characters embodying so many feminist characteristics. We need more men like it, not just on TV, but in the world in general. Men who will fight, support and respect women because really in the end, feminism benefits us all.

Do you love the men of Wynonna Earp and Killjoys as much as us? Add your thoughts in the comments below!

Killjoys airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET on Syfy and Space. Wynonna Earp airs Fridays at 10 p.m. ET on Syfy and Space.

The Night Shift season 4 spoilers: American Ninja Warrior co-host to appear

03/07/2017

American Ninja WarriorWho’s ready for some American Ninja Warrior – The Night Shift season 4 synergy coming up? We’ve got that courtesy of Akbar Gbajabiamila.

NBC confirmed recently that the co-host of Ninja Warrior will be appearing on the upcoming July 20 episode entitled “Turbulence,” a story that will feature this celebrity cameo through the lens of a charity fundraiser. For a little bit more news on that, just take a look at the synopsis below:

“Drew (Brendan Fehr), his mom (guest star Becky Ann Baker), and Rick’s (guest star Luke MacFarlane) flight home turns into a medical crisis at 35,000 feet when passengers become sickened one by one. Jordan (Jill Flint), Paul (Robert Bailey Jr.), Shannon (Tanaya Beatty), Kenny (JR Lemon), and Cain (Mark Consuelos) spend their day off at an obstacle course fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis, hosted by Akbar Gbajabjamila (“American Ninja Warrior”). Scott (Scott Wolf) finds himself on a Tinder date he won’t soon forget. Meanwhile, TC (Eoin Macken) puts his own life in danger to operate on a soldier.”

The presence of Akbar is a smart move from NBC trying to use one show to promote the other — given that The Night Shift is perpetually a bubble show, we’ll take any opportunity possible to see a little bit of further synergy here. To go along with that further, American Ninja Warrior is one of the network’s top-rated summer shows, and given that many of the doctors and nurses are in pretty good shape on this show, the crossover makes some sense. It’s at least a little more feasible than them attempting to do some sort of America’s Got Talent crossover where Jordan and Paul try to keep Simon Cowell from pushing his buzzer.

This isn’t even the first time we’ve seen American Ninja Warrior cross over with a different NBC show — just remember Dr. Matt Iseman being entertaining as hell on The Celebrity Apprentice earlier this year … and winning it to go along with it?

As for the other stories…

The one that immediately stands out to us is that we’re going to get a chance to see Luke MacFarlane back on the show, given his appearances on the show are reasonably few and far between thanks to other commitments. The story that he’s thrown into is a little familiar for medical dramas given that airplane rescues do make for exciting bottle-episode-esque storylines.

As for what’s going on with Scott and the Tinder date, that just sounds all sorts of hilarious and we’re here for whatever happens as a result of it.

One other thing worth noting is that there will be an exclusive interview up at the site with J.R. Lemon before the next new episode. With that one, you’ll get a tease of what’s ahead for Kenny the rest of the season. (Photo: NBC.)
