Posted on Feb 3rd, 2018 in InterviewNews | Comments Off on James Purefoy and Renée Elise Goldsberry on the complicated feminism of Netflix’s Altered Carbon
Women don’t fare well in Netflix’s Altered Carbon.

Posted on Feb 3rd, 2018 in InterviewNews | Comments Off on James Purefoy calls ‘Altered Carbon’ ‘a warning to us in the present’
Feb. 2 (UPI) — The Following alum James Purefoy says his new dystopian drama Altered Carbon is “a warning to us in the present.”
Now streaming on Netflix, the 10-part adaptation of Richard K. Morgan’s novel is about a futuristic society in which human consciousness may be transferred between bodies, meaning the wealthy can essentially live forever by adopting another “sleeve” when the old one wears out. The series co-stars Renee Elise Goldsberry, Will Yun Lee, Martha Higareda and Ato Essandoh.
Asked by UPI at a roundtable interview Tuesday with reporters what appealed to him about telling this story, Purefoy replied: “I think working on anything where you are talking about a dystopian future on a show, which is very clearly a warning to us in the present. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Altered Carbon’ Premiere Date & Teaser: Futuristic Netflix Drama Stars Joel Kinnaman
Posted on Dec 6th, 2017 in News | Comments Off on ‘Altered Carbon’ Premiere Date & Teaser: Futuristic Netflix Drama Stars Joel Kinnaman
“Live forever, in the body you deserve.” Netflix has set a premiere date for Altered Carbon, its futuristic sci-fi series based on Richard K. Morgan’s cyberpunk novel. The series from Skydance Television starts streaming Friday, February 2. Check out a new teaser above that plays as an ad for Psychasec, the company behind the body transfers.
The Killing alum Jeol Kinnaman stars as Takeshi Kovacs, a former elite interstellar warrior known as an Envoy who has been imprisoned for 300 years and is downloaded into a future he’d tried to stop. Society has been transformed by new technology: consciousness can be digitized, human bodies are interchangeable, and death is no longer permanent. Kovacs is the lone surviving Envoy after they were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned, “on ice”, for centuries until Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy), an impossibly wealthy, long-lived man, offers Kovacs the chance to live again. In exchange, Kovacs has to solve a murder — that of Bancroft himself.
Martha Higareda also stars as Kristin Ortega, a smart and tough lieutenant in the Bay City PD who is following in the footsteps of her father, a cop who died heroically in the line of duty.
Miguel Sapochnik (Game of Thrones) directed the first episode. Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross executive produce alongside Steve Blackman and Kalogridis’ Mythology Entertainment partners Brad Fischer and James Vanderbilt.

Posted on Nov 21st, 2017 in News | Comments Off on The Wine Show Season Two Is Coming to Hulu, and This Time It’s in France
What, you thought you would get only one season of handsome British men educating you about the joys of the vine? The Wine Show is coming back for a second season on Hulu starting on December 1, which will again feature the debonair Matthew Goode, with the addition of his new second-in-command, James Purefoy. (Who, yes, is also quite debonair.)
While the first season took place in Umbria, Italy, this time, the duo is off to a villa in the south of France to sample all of the finest du vin possible, which, per Hulu, will also involve “kayaking and caving in the Ardeche, rounding up bulls on horseback in the Camargue, baking in Lyon, and even cooking their own lunch in the sweltering kitchens of the legendary Palme d’Or restaurant in Cannes.” For all of you Matthew Rhys enthusiasts out there, don’t worry: The fellow Matthew will stay on as a Wine Show consultant, showing off the coolest wine gadgets from the comfort of jolly old London. We’re getting seven episodes of this, people! Le swoon!

For two seasons on HBO’s Rome, James Purefoy melted hearts and solidified his English hunk status as the fated Mark Antony in white-hot scenes opposite another fierce English actor, Polly Walker.
American audiences became hooked on Purefoy and the people who watched the series lived for the fiery and compelling scenes between these two actors.
After Rome was wrapped, Purefoy went contemporary in his American television character roles, first playing billionaire Teddy Rist in NBC’s The Philanthropist where he struck up a fortuitous friendship with co-star Michael Kenneth Williams. Read the rest of this entry »
