There’s always a stupid reason why the couple in a romantic comedy can’t be together until the closing credits. An ex-girlfriend or boyfriend appears at the most narratively conveniently moment, or one of the leads becomes a ghost, or there’s a misunderstanding that could easily be cleared up if the characters just sat and talked to one another for literally 15 seconds. One of the best things about The Big Sick is that the obstacles (plural, there are several) facing this relationship are real and relatable and believable and hugely serious.
Even diehard fans of HBO’s Scorsese-Jagger driven Vinyl knew that Season 2 would bring about some significant changes, but it looks like the record skipped after all. Despite setting a new showrunner after a formal Season 2 renewal, HBO has officially abandoned plans for Vinyl, effectively cancelling the prestigious flop.
Sad news for fans of veteran actor and multiple Emmy-winner Doris Roberts, as the iconic Everybody Loves Raymond star has passed away. Apart from her famed role as Ray’s mother Marie Barone, Roberts is also remembered for her work on Broadway.
For all the time and effort HBO’s Vinyl took getting out of the studio, the Martin Scorsese-Mick Jagger joint certainly skipped a few beats in its February debut. That didn’t stop HBO from ordering a second season, but now showrunner Terence Winter will depart, as the ‘70s music drama retools creatively in Season 2.
As if we couldn’t tell that HBO’s 2016 Jagger-Scorsese fronted Vinyl wouldn’t be one of the more exciting debuts in years, a new set of trailers and some seriously wall-worthy key art seal the deal. See (or hear) the future for rock and roll with our latest look at the February premiere!
Seemingly in production forever (and without a name), HBO’s Mick Jagger-Martin Scorsese music drama Vinyl hit all the right chords by its first trailer, even if its February premiere managed to push back Game of Thrones. Now, a second trailer fleshes out a full cast the likes of Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, and many more.
For months, HBO’s high-profile “Untitled Rock & Roll Drama” with Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese has pooled talent the likes of Bobby Cannavale and Olivia Wilde, all without so much as the suggestion of a name. Now the pay cable network has finally gifted us with the simple-yet-perfect moniker Vinyl, also setting a 2016 premiere for the new music drama.
A sad day for fans of Everybody Loves Raymond and the world at large, as the family of series star Sawyer Sweeten has confirmed news that the 19-year old passed away Thursday of a suspected suicide, in Texas. The young star and his twin brother Sullivan had played Raymond sons Geoffrey and Michael Barone from 1996 to 2005.
Well, we can’t say for sure as a high-profile project from the likes of Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger has ever gone so long through development without an actual title, but HBO officially likes the sweet sounds of “Untitled Rock ‘N’ Roll Project.” The Bobby Cannavale-led ‘70s drama has an official series pickup, with cast from the likes of Olivia Wilde to Ray Romano, and even a beloved ‘Legend of Korra’ star.
It amuses us to no end that HBO's forthcoming period rock and roll drama from the likes of 'Boardwalk Empire' Terence Winter, Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger still hasn't settled on a title, yet continually expands its cast to biblical proportions. Joining Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde and Ray Romano today are Mick Jagger's own son James, comedian Andrew "Dice" Clay, a 'Wolf' of Wall Street, and many more.
