Before Cameron Crowe became a filmmaker – writer/director of SAY ANYTHING and JERRY MAGUIRE, among many feature credits – he started out as a very young rock ‘n’ roll journalist. Crowe’s experiences covering rock bands formed the loose basis for his film ALMOST FAMOUS, which earned him a Best Original Screenplay Oscar. Now Crowe has returned to the rock world for television with his Showtime Network series ROADIES. Based on Crowe’s observations, ROADIES is about the lives, loves and musical passions of the crew that gets the (fictional) folk/rock band Staton House from one huge gig to the next.

In Showtime Network’s new Sunday-night series ROADIES, Luke Wilson plays Bill Hanson, tour manager for the long-lived rock band Seaton House. We don’t see that much of the band, as ROADIES, created by Cameron Crowe (ALMOST FAMOUS) focuses on the behind-the-scenes crew who make sure the show goes on, night after night, town after town. Bill always has his hands full with imperious management, underlings of varying temperaments, overzealous fans, balky equipment – and his own feelings for married coworker Shelli Anderson (Carla Gugino). Wilson previously costarred in two seasons of Showtime’s ENLIGHTENMENT, but his primary work has been in […]Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Will Smith, Alec Baldwin, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Albert Brooks, David Morse, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Luke Wilson Writer: Peter Landesman, based on the GQ Magazine article “Brain Game” by Jeanne Marie Laskas Director: Peter Landesman Distributor: Columbia Pictures/Sony Release Date: December 25, 2015 There were some rumors circulating that the National Football League had persuaded Sony Pictures to tone down the criticism of the NFL in CONCUSSION. If this is true, the imagination staggers at what the film was like earlier, because what’s onscreen here is pretty damning. Based on a true story, CONCUSSION begins in 2002 Philadelphia, where onetime […]Read On »
