Guy Pearce joins Kate Winslet in HBO series ‘Mare of Easttown’

Published

on

Washington [US], February 10 (ANI): Actor Guy Pearce has been roped in to star opposite Kate Winslet in the upcoming HBO miniseries titled ‘Mare of Easttown’.
The duo has shared screen space in the American drama miniseries ‘Mildred Pierce’, for which both the actors won Emmy awards in 2011. The five-part adaptation had in total garnered 21 nominations and took home five awards, reported Variety.
Pearce has replaced ‘The Crown’ actor Ben Miles’ for the role of Richard Ryan in ‘Mare of Easttown’. Miles left the upcoming miniseries over a year ago due to scheduling conflicts. Pearce will co-star alongside Winslet, who plays Mare Sheehan, a small-town Pennsylvania detective whose life crumbles around her as she investigates a local murder.
Meanwhile, Pearce will play the character of Ryan, a visiting creative writing professor who wrote a National Book Award-winning novel 25 years ago, but has not lived up to his early potential.
‘Mare of Easttown’ will prominently focus on family and community. Winslet, apart from starring, will also be serving as one of the show’s executive producers.
The upcoming series is a co-production between HBO and Wiip, the CAA-backed independent studio headed by Paul Lee. Brad Ingelsby created the show and is writing all episodes in addition to serving as executive producer and showrunner.
Alongside Ingelsby are executive producer Gavin O’Connor and fellow executive producer and director Craig Zobel. Lee and Mark Roybal will be serving as executive producers for Wiip, while Gordon Gray is executive producing via Mayhem Pictures.
Other previously announced cast members of the forthcoming limited series include Julianne Nicholson, Jean Smart, Angourie Rice, Evan Peters, Cailee Spaeny, David Denman, John Douglas Thompson, Patrick Murney, James McArdle, Sosie Bacon, Joe Tippett, and Neal Huff.
Pearce’s most recent TV credits include starring in ‘Jack Irish’, ‘A Christmas Carol’, and serving as a main cast member on the British supernatural Netflix series ‘The Innocents’.
He is also widely known for his leading roles in ‘L.A. Confidential’, ‘Memento’ and ‘The Hurt Locker’, among others. His next project is the upcoming Stefano Sollima film ‘Without Remorse’, based on the Tom Clancy thriller of the same name. It is set to be released on April 30 on Amazon Prime. (ANI)

CELEBS SLAM MEDIA FOR MOBBING SRK DURING HIS VISIT TO JAIL TO MEET ARYAN

Published

NEW DELHI: Social media was flooded with reactions from fans and celebrities slamming paparazzi for mobbing Shah Rukh Khan as he arrived to meet son Aryan at the Arthur Road jail Thursday morning.

SRK on Wednesday paid a visit to his son Aryan Khan, who is lodged in Arthur Road Jail. Aryan was arrested on 3 October in connection with a drug seizure on a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast. According to jail authorities, the actor left after a brief meeting with his son.

The ‘insensitive’ reporting by the media during the superstar’s visit angered fans and the film and TV fraternity. Celebrities including Hansal Mehta, Sonu Sood, and others slammed the paparazzi on Twitter.

Filmmaker Hansal Mehta wrote, “Being a celebrity, being a star, being from ‘Bollywood’ means your emotion, your torment and your concern as a father become a matter of public consumption, heartless abuse and ruthless judgement.”

Sonu Sood slammed media by writing, “Before running after someone’s feelings with a camera, remember, God’s camera is sitting on you. Because not every news is news.”

Re-tweeting the video of SRK being mobbed ruthlessly outside the Arthur jail, Pooja Bhatt wrote, “Dear members of the press. I know times are tougher than ever and there is immense pressure on you’ll from your respective employers to grab a byte even if it means compromising your own health and safety but how do you’ll explain this pack like behaviour to your own children? Tragic.”
