David Milch’s new HBO project The Money will no longer be a two-man piece in which Brendan Gleeson and Nathan Lane exchange witty quips and steely glares. New casting announcements will give James Castman, Gleeson’s powerful media mogul character, other characters to scream profanities at, both at home and at the office. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Homeland’s David Harewood has been cast as Kurt Corbitt, “a grandiose, boisterous, irascible ideologue and the CEO of the parent company to Castman’s holdings.” And Deadline reports that Oblivion star Andrea Riseborough has been cast as Anna Elkin, an “Oxford-educated and self-made success who is an editor at a top NY newspaper.” In the more personal realm, Boardwalk Empire’s Patrick Kennedy and Hell on Wheels’ Dominique McElligott are set to play Castman’s adult children, John (the “dutiful and ethically strong” one), and Katherine (the “beloved” one), respectively ...

More than a dozen years ago, when L.A. native Jon Robin Baitz belatedly premiered his L.A.-set play Mizlansky/Zilinsky at the Geffen Playhouse, I had the chance to sit down with him and chat about his career, which for all its New York pedigree and well-made-play reputation, began in part under the fold of the avant-garde Padua Hills gang (Baitz reconnected with this formative influence in this 2012 interview with John Steppling). We've stayed lightly in touch since, but I didn't have the opportunity for another meaty conversation with him until last year, when Other Desert Cities--another California-set play, among an ouevre not generally set on that coast--was finally bowing at the Mark Taper Forum, a theater Baitz grew up going to, and I talked to him for the program. Now he's getting his first major New York revival, of a play set in South Africa in 1970. The Film Society had its debut at the Los Angeles Theatre Center in 1987 before opening to some acclaim at the Second Stage the following year, in a production starring a young whippersnapper named Nathan Lane. The Keen Company's production, starring Euan Morton, opens next week, and it was the occasional of this lovely chat for my former employer, TDF. He spoke in part about how, though the play was inspired by some formative years he spent in South Africa at a private school while his dad was working for Carnation company, he felt he had "no way of talking about South Africa now. I did go back in the ’90s and went to one of the Truth and Reconciliation hearings, and got a ride back to Johannesburg from Pretoria with Athol Fugard, whom I knew a little bit. There was slightly a menacing vibe, and a few burning cars and tires here and there.” A sense of menace is chief among the things he remembers from his younger years there: “There was a dominant terror of black people, which was just under the surface of the daily discourse there. ‘When is the revolt going to happen?’ ‘Do you have your guns ready?’ It was nothing if not weird."

David Milch’s latest HBO project, the Brendan Gleeson vehicle The Money, has gained another cast member in the form of adorable Broadway rapscallion Nathan Lane. The project, which has a pilot order at HBO, is about power and money and corporate corruption and blah, blah, blah David Milch. Gleeson’s character will be a powerful media mogul, who looks to expand his empire, probably by being a massive dick. The pilot will be directed by Justin Chadwick. According to Deadline, Lane’s character will be a New York newspaper reporter whose job “hangs by a thread.” Looking for a byline, Lane heads off in search of “hot scoop,” which suggests this will be the greatest show in television history, provided it’s just Nathan Lane screaming over and over again about where the “hot scoop” is. Milch actually created a newspaper drama in the early ‘90s called Capital News ... Read more
