'The Hatton Garden Job' star Stephen Moyer talks about finding empathy for his criminal role.
Playing the bad guy has always got to be a lot of fun for any actor, but what about when that character in question is or was a real person? Stephen Moyer plays the criminal Marcus Ford in the forthcoming true story drama 'The Hatton Garden Job'.
Stephen Moyer stars as Marcus Ford in 'The Hatton Garden Job'
We're sure he'll make exceptions when it comes to people like Hitler or child killers, but Stephen Moyer believes you always have to find empathy for your character in a movie no matter how terrible they may be. He plays one of the criminals involved in the 2015 Hatton Garden safe deposit burglary for his latest film.
One man is plotting to carry out the biggest diamond heist in history in a bid to settle a debt that could otherwise cost him his life. He decides to target one of London's biggest and most secure safe deposit facilitys; the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Company which could bag him up to $200 million. But the youth of today just aren't up for a job of this size; if they want to carry out this theft successfully, they need to get hold of the real veterans of the game. Criminal mastermind Brian Reader, getaway driver Kenny Collins and fixer and supplier Terry Perkins are all roped in to execute the crime. On the other hand, these crooks are the very definition of 'old' school, which means they could be more of a liability than a success.

The 45-year-old recently revealed he was forced to himself into an English rehab facility 14 years ago and he has remained sober ever since.
For the first time in his life, Stephen Moyer has publically spoke about his battle with alcohol addiction, which culminated when the 45-year-old actor checked himself into an English facility 14 years ago.
Moyer recently spoke about his issues with alcohol abuse in the past
While he was part of a panel at an event for CLARE Foundation, a non-profit treatment facility in Santa Monica, California, Moyer admitted he drank a lot of booze while working in the English theatre, a tradition that his "heroes," actors Peter O'Toole, Richard Burton and Oliver Reed, were known for.
This battle has been building for a couple of episodes, but did Sookie and company botch Arlene's rescue?
Oh, True Blood, if only you could continue to delight and gross us out for a couple more years. The show has long since run its course at this point, but showrunner Mark Hudis and co. seem intent on going out with a bang. And by “bang” we mean lots and lots of blood, of course. We probably don’t need to say this anymore, but don’t read ahead if you haven’t seen the latest episode. EVERYTHING BELOW THIS IS SPOIlERS.
Anna Paquin has stuck with her Sookie Stackhouse character throughout seven seasons of ridiculousness.
There’s no light reprieve in this one. As the episode begins, Tara is dead, her boyfriend is dead and Sookie is tasked with giving his father the devastating news. Meanwhile, Jason has a message to deliver too – Hoyt Fortenberry’s mother was killed by a vampire and Jason needs to tell his former best friend. This is how we learn that Hoyt is actually still a character on the show.

Although the 44 year-old actor help develop several of the tracks for the proposed musical, he does not plan to reprise his role on Broadway.
Several days ago 'True Blood's' longtime composer, Nathan Barr, revealed that a musical version of the hit HBO series may be headed to Broadway.
Stephen Moyer, who plays vampire Bill Compton, reportedly assisted in developing the stage adaptation, which the pair then presented to the show's producers.
But the British actor does not plan on reprising his role in the proposed musical.
Nathan Barr is already working on the music for the project.
Singing, dancing vampires. It might sound like the entertainment industry is collapsing in on itself, but the concept is on its way to become a reality with a musical based on HBO’s True Blood. HBO is in “very early discussions” for the project, according to Variety. Even so, Nathan Barr, the composer behind True Blood’s score, already has a couple of songs ready for the musical. He plans to present the project to the network next year.
“The story lends itself to a musical,” Barr told E! Online. “The challenge for us is the minute I thought about ‘True Blood: The Musical,’ I myself could kind of groan. I can see the bad version of that. It’s really a matter of finding a way of sort of reinventing it.”

Based on the events documented in West of Memphis and the Paradise Lost trilogy, this drama takes an almost clinical approach to the story. By filling in so many details and covering so many perspectives, skilled Canadian director Atom Egoyan sometimes loses the emotional connection, simply because there are too many punches to the gut. But it's utterly riveting.
The events took place in 1993 in rural West Memphis, Arkansas. After three 8-year-old boys go missing, suspicion immediately falls on four goth 16-year-olds: Chris (Dane DeHaan) has just left town, but the fiercely charismatic Damien (James Hamrick), hapless Jason (Seth Meriwether) and mentally disabled Jesse (Kristopher Higgens) are arrested and charged with murder. The victims' parents (including Reese Witherspoon, Alessandro Nivola and Kevin Durand) band together in outrage. But private investigator Ron (Colin Firth) thinks the police have wrongly accused these teens of being killers.
The story is a shocking account of a miscarriage of justice, as the community turns on kids who simply look a bit funny and the police and judicial authorities refuse to admit that they may have made some serious mistakes. The rush to judgement is terrifying, accompanied with explanations that falsely link the teens to satanic rituals and death-metal music. Egoyan cleverly builds a sense of outrage from the start, as the film mourns not only the young boys' death but also the horror of carelessly ruining three innocent teens' lives in response.

The new season looks particularly violent. And that's saying something with this show.
Straight in the middle of TV’s upfront season True Blood has just released its season 7 trailer. Currently, the popular opinion seems to be that the guilty pleasure series is well past its prime by now and consequently, Sookie Stackhouse’s adventures are getting more outrageous by the episode. Now, the final season is gearing up to tie all the loose ends left.
Watch the first trailer for season 7 below.
The trailer starts with a flashback to the beginning of it all. “I’ve lived in Bon Temps my whole life,” Anna Paquin says via voice-over. “But we can’t go back to the way things were.”

The network is going back to its roots for the festive period once again
NBC will hope to emulate the success they had over the 2013 seasonal period when they aired a live performance of The Sound of Music starring Carrie Underwood and Stephen Meyer. The show was a huge success for the network, earning strong viewer figures and a considerable amount of positive press, paving the way for another similar spectacle for the coming Christmas period: Peter Pan.
NBC took little time to announce its intentions to air another live, theatrical performance this coming Christmas-time, following the convincing success of The Sound of Music last month. At its peak, that performance scored more than 18 million viewers and held on to a strong amount of viewers for much of the telecast. Looking to capture similar audience figures again, the network have opted for a familiar story which translates from the stage to screen well and has a long history of multiple reconstructions. Peter Pan then seems like the ideal choice to keep this festive formula running.
