F. Murray Abraham Embraces Video Gaming in ‘Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet’ – TCA
It isn’t much of a surprise to find It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia co-creator Rob McElhenny on a TCA panel as Ep and co-creator of a new workplace comedy Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet for AppleTV+ — but what was Academy Award winner F. Murray Abraham doing on the stage?

McElhenny was joined on today’s large panel by Ep/actor David Hornsby, Ep/Co-Creator Megan Ganz, and cast members Danny Pudi, Ashly Burch, Jessie Enis, Imani Hakim, Charlotte Nicdao and, well, Abraham. One of the first questions was why a celebrated veteran such as Abraham would take a role in a new comedy set in the world of video gaming.

Abraham said every role in his career has not been mythic. “The first 15 years of my career it was all comedy, no one knows about that because it was so long ago,” the actor said. “There are four generations of actors in this series,

Rob McElhenney Says the Characters in ‘Mythic Quest’ Are ‘Real People’ Compared to ‘Sunny’ Gang

  • The Wrap
Rob McElhenny’s new Apple TV+ series, “Mythic Quest,” where he plays a boorish video game developer, looks and feels like a lot like that other comedy McElhenny has been starring on for the last 14 years, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” But Sunday, McElhenny explained how the two will be different.

“‘Sunny,’ because it’s set in satire, we’ve sort of created these characters that ostensibly become live action cartoony characters. Whereas this we really wanted strive for something different,” he said Sunday during the Television Critics Association press tour. “Yes, we wanted it to be funny, but that the characters really felt like real people. This felt like a real workplace environment.”

McElhenny co-created the comedy with his “Sunny” co-star Charlie Day and executive producer Megan Ganz. The series was renewed for a second season on Sunday.

‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’s Rob McElhenney Says “We’ll Keep Doing It Forever”
It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia co-creator Rob McElhenney said that he and the gang will continue to make the FX series as long as people watch it.

McElhenney, speaking at Winter TCA press tour to promote Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet, reassured fans that the AppleTV+ comedy would not prevent the Sunny from getting back together.

This comes after FX Networks and FX Productions Chairman John Landgraf and FX Entertainment President Eric Schrier told Deadline that they are discussing more episodes of the long-running comedy with the core team of creator McElhenney, Glenn Howerton and Charlie Day. “We hope [it will continue], said Schrier. “We’re actively talking to them about more,” added Landgraf.

Tom Hanks movies: 20 greatest films ranked worst to best
After a 19 year dry spell, Tom Hanks finally returned to the Oscar race this year by slipping into Mr. Rogers’ sneakers in “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.” Where does the Fred Rogers biopic fall within the rest of his filmography? Tour through our photo gallery of Hanks’ 20 greatest films, ranked worst to best.

Among the most honored actors in history, Hanks won two consecutive Academy Awards (Best Actor for “Philadelphia” in 1993 and “Forrest Gump” in 1994) from five nominations. Yet curiously, despite doing remarkable film work, he had not been nominated in nearly two decades.

Here’s How Danny DeVito Could Look As Vesemir In The Witcher Season 2

For better or worse, Netflix’s The Witcher series takes a number of creative liberties with Andrzej Sapkowski’s source material.

In order to justify having Yennefer, Ciri and Geralt all appear in the show’s inaugural season, writers opted to utilize a non-linear narrative that’s left many first-time viewers confused, to say the least. With the majority of those first two character’s origin stories accounted for, however, showrunner Lauren Hissrich recently confirmed that future seasons are unlikely to feel so disjointed, leaving plenty of room to dive further into Geralt’s backstory and how he came to be the titular Witcher.

While it won’t necessarily be in season 2 that the White Wolf returns to his adoptive home of Kaer Morhen, we know that he, along with Ciri, will at some point visit the near-to abandoned castle and, in turn, meet Vesemir. A father figure to Geralt

Apple Will Release ‘The Banker’ After Allegations of Inaccuracy and Sexual Abuse

Apple Will Release ‘The Banker’ After Allegations of Inaccuracy and Sexual Abuse
After its awards-season release was stymied by allegations of inaccuracy and sexual abuse, “The Banker” has been cleared for release by Apple. The film starring Anthony Mackie, Samuel L. Jackson, and Nicholas Hoult will be released theatrically March 6 before dropping on the Apple TV+ two weeks later.

The George Nolfi-directed movie is based on the true story of black businessmen Bernard Garrett (Mackie) and Joe Morris (Jackson), who devise a plan to take on the racist 1960s establishment by training a working-class white man, Matt Steiner (Hoult), to pose as the rich and privileged face of their burgeoning real estate and banking empire — while Garrett and Morris pose as a janitor and a chauffeur. Their success catches the attention of the federal government, which risks the empire they have built.

The real-life Garrett’s son, Bernard Garrett Jr. initially had a co-producer credit on the film and was part

The Oscars love the ’90s: The supporting actor field is a bunch of acting champs (and a nominee) from the past
Tom Hanks (“A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”), Anthony Hopkins (“The Two Popes”), Al Pacino (“The Irishman”), Joe Pesci (“The Irishman”) and Brad Pitt (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”) received Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominations on Monday, just as they did at the Golden Globes. Notice anything about them? Besides, you know, being icons, legends, a two-time Sexiest Man Alive? They were all acting nominees in successive years in the ’90s — and four of them won.

Pesci kicked it off with a supporting actor win for “Goodfellas” (1990). The next year, Hopkins was part of the big five sweep for “The Silence of the Lambs” (1991), taking Best Actor honors. On his eighth nomination and as a double nominee, Pacino at long last grabbed the gold with his lead victory for “Scent of a Woman” (1992). Then Hanks won back-to-back Best Actor statuettes for “Philadelphia” (1993) and “Forrest Gump” (1994). And finally, Pitt was

‘The Good Fight’ Season 4 to Feature Hugh Dancy, Michael J. Fox, Mergers and ‘How Rules Have Broken Down’
When “The Good Fight” returns for its fourth season this year, it will do so with its same sensibility but lots of new faces.

“The show’s not going to lose any of its political sense. That seems to be the niche we have found ourselves in,” co-creator and co-showrunner Robert King said during the CBS All Access Television Critics Assn. press tour panel Sunday.

Story areas for the new season, he continued, include “issues with big mergers and some of the things that are going on right now within the political world.”

When describing the former, King said that the way the “business universe in America is merging — obviously Disney-Fox, CBS, everything is becoming a bigger conglomerate” was a specific inspiration for the season. “We’re all kind of agitated by this gathering together of these large, Amazon-like forces that want to control what we say and do,

Will ‘It’s Always Sunny’ Get a 15th Season and Break a Record?

In 2019, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia aired its 14th season. With this season number, the irreverent FX comedy about a bunch of sociopathic bar owners (a compliment! I like the show!) tied with The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet for status as the longest-running live action comedy series. Will they beat the record and pull out a 15th season? Hell, a 16th? 20th?! Today, at the 2020 TCAs, FX revealed that they'd certainly like to see more sunshine in Philly. And they're in talks with the core creative team to do so. According to Deadline, …

FX In Talks For More ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’ – TCA
It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia looks like it could become the longest-running live-action comedy series after FX revealed it was in “active talks” for more seasons.

The comedy tied with ABC’s The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet for longest-running live-action comedy series by seasons with its 14th run.

FX Networks and FX Productions Chairman John Landgraf and FX Entertainment President Eric Schrier told Deadline that they are discussing with the core team of creator Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton and Charlie Day.

“We hope [it will continue], said Schrier. “We’re actively talking to them about more,” added Landgraf.

Landgraf previously told Deadline that he couldn’t believe that it still exists after 14 years. “If [Rob] wanted to make it 15th or 16th season, we would absolutely do it. The show is still good; it’s as good as it’s ever been.”

First Trailer for FX’s ‘Breeders’ Suggests That Parenting Might Be Kind of Hard

The network looks to keep that streak alive with Breeders, the parenting-is-hard series starring Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard.

Can Rob McElhenney’s ‘Mythic Quest’ Help Apple Build Its Programming Brand?

Can Rob McElhenney’s ‘Mythic Quest’ Help Apple Build Its Programming Brand?
When Rob McElhenney was initially approached by Ubisoft about writing a series set in the video game industry, he was reluctant: He didn’t see a way into that world. But when the company invited him to tour its Montreal headquarters, he figured there was nothing to lose. Once there, he found the inspiration he needed.

“I met a creative director” for one of Ubisoft’s games, McElhenney says — likening the role to that of filmmakers who direct their own screenplays. “He took this very loaded beat, and he took a breath and stared out into the distance and said, ‘I create worlds.’ I excused myself for a second, and I called Charlie [Day, McElhenney’s producing partner] and said, ‘We have to do a show about this because it is amazing.’”

The resulting series, “Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet,” is set to launch on Apple TV Plus on Feb. 7. It hails from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
