Actor Benjamin Stockham is only thirteen years old, but he’s been acting since he was five. Not only is he a film (QUARANTINE, SIMON SAYS) and television (1600 PENN, SONS OF TUCSON) veteran, he’s also remarkably quick with ad-libbed one-liners. At a Q&A panel with the Television Critics Association for NBC’s new series ABOUT A BOY, adapted for television by Jason Katims from Nick Hornsby’s novel, Stockham is seated with Katims and cast mates Minnie Driver, David Walton and Al Madrigal. When someone says to Stockham, “You’re either an exceptional young actor or you’re just like your character. Which is […]Read On »

Bill Pullman is currently starring as U.S. President Dale Gilcrist in NBC’s new half-hour comedy 1600 PENN, Thursdays at 9:30 PM. In addition to matters of state, Pullman’s chief executive has to contend with how three of his children (Martha MacIsaac, Amara Miller, Benjamin Stockham) react to their relatively new stepmother (Jenna Elfman) and the well-meaning but often embarrassing exploits of his oldest son Skip, played by Josh Gad, who created 1600 PENN with Jon Lovett and Jason Winer. Pullman has just finished a raucously funny Q&A session at the Television Critics Association press tour for 1600 PENN with his […]Read On »

The format Gad is using is an ineptly scripted sitcom named 1600 PENN (which got a sneak preview […]Read On »
