If you are a theater/dance aficionado, you should REALLY be watching FX’s Fosse/Verdon. The masterful take on the legendary partnership of choreographer, director, artist Bob Fosse and his ultimate muse Gwen Verdon (who FINALLY gets her due credit in this series) is simply wonderful. Oscar winner Sam Rockwell plays Fosse, and by the first scene, we were completely sold […]

FX has just greenlit a new series called Fosse/Verdon based on Sam Wasson‘s Bob Fosse biography. This alone is exciting, considering how deep into the dance genre and culture of performance art they’ve been going lately with Pose (which got picked up for a second season). The Hollywood Reporter tells us that Lin-Manuel Miranda is re-teaming with “Hamilton” and […]
Oscar-winning actor Sam Rockwell will be joining Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi‘s upcoming World War II satirical farce film, Jojo Rabbit.

Welcome back! It’s The Weekly Static, so that’s what you call us. That or – uh – “His Weekness”, or – uh – “Weeker,” or “El Weekerino,” if you’re not into the whole brevity thing. But first? I need you to look me in the eye and put your hands on top of the table […]
Well, right off the bat there are two things we either learned or confirmed about actor Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) last night: he really seems to care about science, and he really likes to throws himself into the characters he plays… much to the chagrin of NBC censors. Saturday Night Live kicked […]
The holiday season is a time for friends, family… and an avalanche of third-rate holiday movies that put the “guilty” in “guilty pleasure.” So leave it to Saturday Night Live to remind us all to save some room at the dinner table for some old friends: the big-city career woman (Kate McKinnon) who finds love […]
There is a speech delivered about 20 minutes into Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri by Frances McDormand that perfectly encapsulates the tone and surprisingly funny nature of the film. A priest visits her home to try and persuade her to take down her damning billboards, and she gives maybe the most epic takedown of organized […]

Max Landis wrote the script, which is also promising.
This is one of the best American films about the dissonance between teenagers and adults I've seen in a good long while.
Alasdair Stuart writes for Bleeding Cool Colin Farrell is one of the best comic actors of the last twenty years and I’m not talking about his role as Bullseye. He’s got a rare ability for deadpan and even more more so for full on crazy and both of those were put on show in Martin […]
A couple of weeks back, Duncan Jones and his producing partner Stuart Fenegan hosted two special screenings of Moon at The New Beverly in LA. On one night, Sam Rockwell joined them, and the video cameras were switched on. I’ve just watched a video of the whole Q&A with thanks to Man Made Movies, the […]
