By the time Dexter limped to a finish last year, even its most ardent fans had to admit that the series had already gone on too long. But Showtime feels differently. Apparently, they hope to spend even more time with the handsome serial killer in the future.
According to Showtime president David Nevins, a Dexter spinoff is “something we continue to talk about” — but that it’s only gonna happen if Michael C. Hall agrees to appear Hit the jump to read Nevins’ comments, including his thoughts on criticism of the finale (spoilers follow).

There’s a 30-second clip going around today that is being billed as the teaser trailer for Kill Your Darlings, in which Daniel Radcliffe adopts an American accent to play beat poet Allen Ginsberg. In truth, this seems to be a truncated upload of the full trailer; the end of this clip is clearly not meant to be the real end of the trailer.
Still, this is a film that many of you have been curious about for some time, and so it’s worth a look at the footage. We see Radcliffe as a young Ginsberg. He arrives at school and quickly falls into the orbit of the seductive, charismatic Lucien Carr, played by rising star Dane DeHaan. There’s a shadow of a threat from Carr’s older friend David, played by Michael C. Hall (Dexter) but you don’t get to see much of that here. You also don’t get to see even a hint of the film’s most scandalous moments, which include a sex scene featuring Radcliffe that will make some audiences see the actor in a very different light.
In general, this story doesn’t end well at all — “kill” in the title is quite literal — but this is a nice little tease for those who want to see what Radcliffe has done after the end of Harry Potter and the success of The Woman in Black. Check out the footage below; we’ll update with the full trailer when it becomes available. Read More »

For Jason Reitman‘s final live read of the 2012-2013 season, he chose a revered, Oscar-winning screenplay: Christopher McQuarrie‘s The Usual Suspects. When that title was announced I was initially skeptical. I thought, “The Usual Suspects is so well known for its surprise ending, and that ending is so incredibly visual, how would it come across in a live read setting?” The answer was revealed in two ways. First this read suggests that Bryan Singer‘s direction in the original film is powerful and underrated. Also, as great as the ending to McQuarrie’s script is, some of his true poetry isn’t even on the screen.

The image above comes straight from Sundance and is the first official look at the cast of Kill Your Darlings, which features a good crop of young actors as Beat Generation luminaries such as Allen Ginsberg and William S. Burroughs. Daniel Radcliffe plays Ginsberg and Ben Foster plays Burroughs; Jack Huston joins in as Jack Kerouac, and Dane DeHaan plays Lucien Carr, who introduced Ginsberg to Burroughs and Kerouac, and in so doing helped create one of the most notable writers’ cliques of the century.
But a guy named David Kammerer (Michael C. Hall) was in love with Carr, and when Kammerer was found murdered, the group of friends was caught up in the investigation, and the young Ginsberg’s coming of age is tainted by experience he would never have predicted.
A full synopsis for the film is below. Read More »
