- Taking flyers from people passing them out in the street. I've flyered. It can be soul-crushing. 9 out of 10 people won't even look at you. The shittiest thing about it, is the public perception of people handing out flyers is, "ugh, get a job." Because this is a hob...

I didn't fall head-over-heals in love with Dunkirk like I wanted to, BUT there were a few things I couldn't help but get excited about: 

- Hoyte van Hoytema (Her, Interstellar) is clearly Nolan's new cinematographer, and that's every reason to get pumped about anything...

Filmmakers and friends of filmmakers, I'm hiring my essential team for two projects I'm producing in the fall. Both are minimal in terms of location and actors. Each would require 1-2 days of shooting and rehearsals.

So, this... in a show about death and a funeral home, where we watched someone die in the opening moments of every episode, it's only fitting that it ends with, well, everyone dying. (If I've somehow just spoiled a show that's been done for over ten years, please don't...

Days 1-27 were in no-particular order, but as I close this out, I wanted to end with the best of the best. So here's the first of my top-3 favorite scenes of all-time.

I don't think I've made it a secret that Louis CK has had a huge impact on me over the years. Seasons 1-3 broke every mold I thought I knew about comedy. And while it's certainly not the first show ever to walk a tight-rope between two genres, the absurdity and heighte...

My first exposure to this film was during the Oscars in 2007, where a grand-old spectacle was made out of Enchanted, whose songs owned 4 out of the 5 nominations for Best Original Song. Amy Adams and the rest of the cast rolled out like it was the fucking Tony Awards,...

(I almost wrote about the sequence where Hannah and Marnie dance to “Dancing on My Own”, but realized that was more about my love for Robyn than anything.)

Girls premiered right around the time when I started taking writing seriously, so I owe a lot of how I've honed th...

I had the privilege of hearing Mitchell Hurwitz speak when Doorman was at the New York Television Festival in 2013 (plug: chrisrussellactor.com/doorman). He's every bit as charming and hilarious as you would imagine (and does an incredible impression of Bea Arthur). Wh...

I really agonized over which scene I wanted to include in the film that defined my childhood. I came very close to writing about the opening scene in the New York Public Library, then all the scenes were Rick Moranis gets possessed and starts acting like a dog, but I c...
