Wylie Writes’ One-On-One with Veronica Ngo

Furie, the highest grossing Vietnamese movie of all time, took North America’s digital platform by storm last month.  What’s perhaps even more notable is how the vehicle has propelled Veronia Ngo to action heroine status.  Ngo (Bright, Star Wars: The Last Jedi) stars as provoked mother Hai Phuong who will do anything (and fight anyone) to save her kidnapped daughter.

Wylie Writes’ One-On-One with Eve Harlow

A movie is made up of many moving parts, as you know, but The Tomorrow Man really makes you appreciate its supporting characters.  John Lithgow and Blythe Danner (as Ed and Ronnie) are terrific actors who have no problem holding our attention and steering the story (provided by writer/director Noble Jones).  But, their characters would have a hard time finding momentum if it wasn’t for Ed’s temperamental family – a group of people we’re briefly involved…

Wylie Writes’ One-On-One with Bob Saget

To perform stand-up comedy takes skill, and it’s a developmental process specific to each comedian until they find their own individual presence.  For some comics, however, the experimental process becomes their career – always finding ways to deliver jokes and stories while keeping listeners on their toes.  Bob Saget certainly falls into this category.  Being professionally experimental is what makes Saget’s comedy work.

Wylie Writes’ One-On-One with Max Joseph

By: Addison Wylie Many will recognize Max Joseph from his co-hosting gig on MTV’s Catfish, a modern mystery program featuring Max and Nev Schulman helping online romantics track down their ambiguous lovers.  Faithful viewers of Catfish, however, were given episodes early on in season 4 that were absent of Joseph.  This was because the filmmaker was still busy working on his feature film debut, We Are Your Friends. We Are Your Friends followed a group of pals trying…

People Hold On (plus a One-On-One with Director Michael Seater)

By: Addison Wylie Life With Derek’s Michael Seater gets his directorial feet wet with the ensemble dramedy People Hold On.  It’s a good place for the budding filmmaker to start.  The film itself is contained within few environments and doesn’t call for visual tricks, which leaves Seater a lot of time to draw characters and connect with his tight-knit cast.  The filmmaker must’ve also felt another level of comfort and confidence knowing co-star Paula Brancati – whom…

Wylie Writes’ One-On-One with Adam Scott

By: Shannon Page Adam Scott has been around for a while and his latest project, the indie sex-comedy The Overnight, is certainly not his first attempt at acting or producing.  Though he is probably best known for his work as Ben Wyatt on the television sitcom Parks and Recreation, Scott has also appeared in movies such as Step Brothers, The Aviator and Our Idiot Brother.  The Overnight stars Scott as Alex and Taylor Schilling (of…

Wylie Writes’ One-On-One with Dan Abramovici

By: Addison Wylie Mars Horodyski’s Ben’s at Home is a film you can’t help but root for.  I’ve been cheering the movie on since I saw it at this year’s Canadian Film Festival, and was overjoyed to hear it won Best Feature as the festival was winding down. Besides its win at the Canadian Film Festival, Ben’s at Home has won all sorts of affection; which is very impressive considering how small scale the movie is. It’s a daunting…

Wylie Writes’ One-On-One with Nick Kroll

By: Shannon Page It’s not exactly uncommon to find comedic actors who have made the transition, or at least attempted the transition, to more serious acting roles. Nick Kroll’s latest creation, the indie-comedy Adult Beginners, is an undeniably sharp departure from the character-based sketch comedy that the comedian’s fans have come to expect from his Comedy Central show, Kroll Show.  Though it has its comic moments, Adult Beginners, which explores the relationship between two estranged…
