Seth Meyers’ THE AWESOMES - A Hulu Original Series

The Awesomes (Hulu)

On Demand Weekly provides new movie reviews of hot movies on demand and from the POV of watching from the comfort of your home. Today’s review: "The Awesomes" (Hulu).

THE AWESOMES
By Joe Charnitski

 

What did you think of this year’s summer superhero movies?

Iron-Man came back for the third time (not including his appearance in THE AVENGERS) and Superman was reinvented, for at least the third time (not including his TV work). Wolverine broke away from the X-Men to release a solo adventure, and even The Lone Ranger (ok, he doesn’t have super powers, but I think the premise still applies) galloped across cinema screens once again. As long as we keep paying, and IRON MAN 3 made north of $400 million, Hollywood will keep playing the super hero card, as they have for decades.

The creators of Hulu’s new animated series “The Awesomes” are hoping that all of this experience with heroes, villains, civilizations in peril and all that will make us appreciate their comedic, but not fully satiric, take on the genre. The series follows the adventures of Prock (voiced by series creator SETH MEYERS) a low grade hero who has inherited a Justice League-type band of superfriends from his father, Mr. Awesome, after his recent retirement. Mr. Awesome’s team doesn’t believe the young professor and doctor (thus, Prock) has the right stuff, so they quit the team. A federal government bureaucrat alerts Prock that he will lose his funding from Uncle Sam if he doesn’t put together a band of formidable super crime fighters.

Over the course of the first episodes Prock does build a team, and they have some impressive strengths, but also some wacky weaknesses. Can this team of misfits save the world from the evil likes of Doctor Malocchio (voiced by SNL alum Bill Hader)? Can Prock ever live up to his father’s legend, or even to the competition from everyone’s favorite big hero on campus, Perfect Man?

VOD Spotlight: Clark Gregg (TRUST ME)May 02, 2014


VOD Spotlight: Clark Gregg (TRUST ME)

Clark Gregg (Starz Digital Media)

TRUST ME tells the sharp, comic story of Howard Holloway (Clark Gregg), a down-on-his luck agent for child actors and truly one the last good guys left in Hollywood. After discovering a 13-year-old acting prodigy (Sharbino), he is poised to close the deal of a lifetime which would catapult his tween client and, at long last, himself, into the big time. With the support of his gorgeous new neighbor (Peet), he must wrangle the actress' volatile, overprotective father, dodge a scheming producer (Felicity Huffman), and outwit his uber-slick nemesis (Sam Rockwell). As he arrives on the brink of the Hollywood dream that's eluded him for a lifetime, he begins to sense that his innocent young starlet may not be quite what she seems.

 

This is the second feature film written and directed by Gregg, who made his directing debut with CHOKE, an adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's novel that starred Sam Rockwell. TRUST ME premeires on demand May 6th. 

 

 

On Demand Weekly (ODW): Hi Clark. Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions about your new pre-theatrical release on demand, TRUST ME. Fans of the Marvel movies, and the TV series “Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and “The New Adventures Of Old Christine” you’re in are sure to want to learn about the new film you wrote, directed and starred in.
Clark Gregg (CG):
Thanks. I'm excited for people to see the film.

ODW: What prompted you to write a movie about the child actor / agent dynamic in today’s film industry?
CG:
I worked with a number of child actors and there was something hilarious and heartbreaking about some of their agents - aging hustlers who struggle at the bottom of the Hollywood food chain, fetching lattes for entitled "momagers," while constantly searching for the 8 year-old prodigy who'll take them to the big time.

ODW: Did TRUST ME originally begin as a noir?
CG:
I began writing a wacky comedy about "showbiz," but when I started reading the dark stories about some child stars and dropping into the skin of the main character - former child star and now struggling agent for young actors, Howard Holloway - the piece became an edgier comedy with a classic noir anti-hero at its heart. I have to say that Shane Black's wonderful KISS, KISS. BANG, BANG singlehandedly convinced me that a comedic neo-noir could be made.

ODW: Any inspirations for the agent or stories about one you could share?
CG:
As I said, I was inspired by various characters I saw when I worked with child actors, but the piece and Howard's struggle to survive quickly felt representative of the struggles all artists go through and a perfect setting for a comedy of desperation driven by our national obsession with stardom.

 

Clark Gregg, Paul Sparks, Saxon Sharbino, Allison Janney and Felicity Huffman (TRUST ME)



ODW: TRUST ME has such a terrific cast: Felicity Huffman, Amanda Peet, Allison Janney and Sam Rockwell who starred in your directorial debut CHOKE. Did you write any of the parts with the actors in mind, or did you cast once the script was completed?
CG:
I knew that directing myself in the main role of my own script was a monumentally daunting aspiration, one that I could only hope to achieve if surrounded by great actors with whom I already shared a creative rapport. So I wrote specific characters in the distinct voices of some of my favorite actors, many of whom I am fortunate enough to call friends. It was the generosity of those friends and the brilliance of my partner, producer and casting director, Mary Vernieu, along with the support of producer Keith Kjarval that gave the film this remarkable cast.

ODW: The film revolves around the discovery of a prodigy child actress when the real-life actress playing her (Saxon Sharbino) is quite the find. How did you find Saxon?
CG:
We read dozens of fine young actors, but Lydia is a natural, a prodigiously talented young girl who oozes a raw star power that is, more or less, the engine of the film. That quality proved very difficult to find. We also dreamed of finding someone new, someone the audience would be seeing for the fist time as Howard is seeing her... 

 

Just when things were starting to get a little desperate,

Mary Vernieu called me in to read with a new, young actress she had found... 

 

...From the moment the 13-year-old Dallas native, Saxon Sharbino, started reading the audition scene, the role was hers. I'm very excited for audiences to see her truly remarkable performance.

 

Clark Gregg, Saxon Sharbino (TRUST ME)


ODW: Your TV series “Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.” recently coordinated a story line with the current theatrical release Captain America: The Winter Soldier. There must have been incredible planning to coordinate the movies & TV series plots to work so well together. When did you first find out about the plot twist?
