Zachary Quinto’s Josh Norman has a problem.
“I have a condition. I have since I was 19,” Josh tells his therapist, Emily (Jenny Slate), in the above exclusive clip from Aardvark. “It doesn’t have a name, or at least all of the conditions that do have names aren’t a great match.”
Josh says that he does “perfectly fine at life.” But Emily counters that he “must want help” if he’s seeing her.
Aardvark, co-starring Jon Hamm, is set to have its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival this Friday (April 21).
The movie, written and directed by Brian Shoaf in his feature debut, follows Josh as his estranged brother, Craig (Hamm), a well-known TV actor, returns home for the first time in years. Stuck in his brother’s shadow and haunted by it, Josh seeks help from Emily, who develops her own connection to Craig.
Zachary was guest today on Live with Kelly, co-hosting the show with the lovely Kelly Ripa. The video surfaced on youtube with his full appearance, and screencaptures (not the best quality, but will replace if a better source pops up) has been uploaded in our gallery.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt heads an all-star cast in Oliver Stone’s version of the life of controversial whistleblower Edward Snowden.
Oliver Stone has rarely been known for reticence and restraint, but the big problem with Snowden, his rendering of the story of whistleblower Edward Snowden, is that it’s earnest, decorous, and — dare we say — a tad dull. Of course Snowden’s story is by now pretty familiar from news reportage and from Laura Poitras’ Oscar-winning documentary, Citizenfour. Even an award-winning documentary is only seen by a relatively small number of people, so there’s an argument to be made for dramatizing the story with expensive production values and well known actors portraying the characters. Although Snowden has been vindicated in many quarters, he’s still controversial to some, and the technical universe he inhabited is slightly impenetrable to admirers and detractors alike. So it’s hard to imagine hordes of people rushing to see his story on screen again, especially when told in such a hushed and bloodless manner.
Snowden himself was something of a geek and technocrat, not the kind of flamboyant figure who populated many of Stone’s earlier movies. And Joseph Gordon-Levitt does a good job of disappearing into the guarded, self-contained character. But he’s not the kind of character who will draw intense audience empathy. And the pedestrian, sometimes disjointed script written by Stone and Kieran Fitzgerald doesn’t do the actor any favors.
Zachary visited last night the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, as part of his Snowden promotion gig. On the interview he revealed that he’s super paranoid about privacy after learning so much about surveillance while filming it. Check the interview excerpt below:
The full interview will be added later, alongside the proper screencaptures. Check now in our gallery some promotional images:
Zach visited this Monday (18) the Late Late Show with James Corden, as part of the Star Trek Beyond promotion. He was joined by actress Juliette Lewis. Zachary chatted about his recent travels that ended with him taking a selfie in a Chico’s store that was noticed by top brass.
