Clancy Brown as Stanley Thomas

Clancy Brown began his acting career in Chicago theater and continued to perform stage locally until he won the role of Viking, a nasty prison inmate, in the 1983 feature film Bad Boys, starring Sean Penn.

He has gone on to star in many motion pictures; among them are the multiple Oscar® nominated film The Shawshank Redemption, as well as Chappaquiddick, Thor: Ragnarok, Cowboys and Aliens, The Guardian, Starship Troopers, Blue Steel, Shoot to Kill, Extreme Prejudice and the cult classic Highlander. Some of Brown’s television credits include HBO’s Emmy®-award winning series Carnivale, the NBC series Earth 2, the Emmy®-nominated HBO movie Normal, as well as recurring roles on Billions, The Goldbergs, Schooled, Chicago P.D., Sleepy Hollow and ER. Brown has a prolific career as a voice actor and is celebrating 20 years of playing the role of Mr. Krabs on the animated series SpongeBob SquarePants. He can currently be seen playing the series regular role of Ed on ABC’s Emergence, as well as guest starring as LBJ on the new season of The Crown and as Burg in Chapter 6 of the Disney+ series The Mandalorian.

Alfred Molina (Jordan Green) is an accomplished London-born actor whose diverse and distinguished gallery of performances has led to a lengthy and triumphant career. Effortlessly moving between film, TV and theatre, Molina is an authentic artist who is able to morph into a diverse mix of nationalities and personalities.

Some of Alfred’s most unforgettable performances include portraying hedonistic Mexican muralist Diego Rivera in the rave reviewed multi-award nominated film Frida (2002) opposite Salma Hayek and directed by Julie Taymor (SAG Awards nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role), Jewish milkman Teyve in the 2004 Broadway revival of the musical Fiddler on the Roof (Tony nominated for Best Actor), deranged drug dealer Rahad Jackson in the critically acclaimed film Boogie Nights (1997) for director Paul Thomas Anderson and comic book villain Doc Ock in the blockbuster hit sequel Spider-Man 2 (2004) opposite Tobey Maguire for director Sam Raimi.

Other notable projects that Molina appeared in include Paul Thomas Anderson’s epic ensemble drama Magnolia, Lasse Hallström’s Academy Award®-nominated romantic comedy Chocolat (2000), Ron Howard’s adaptation of the Dan Brown novel The Da Vinci Code (2006) opposite Tom Hanks, and Lone Scherfig’s multi-award nominated An Education, for which he received a nomination from the BAFTA Awards for Best Actor in a Supporting Role opposite Carey Mulligan and Peter Sarsgaard. He also starred opposite John Lithgow in the critically acclaimed film Love is Strange (2014) for director Ira Sachs, which garnered him a Best Supporting Male nomination from the Independent Spirit Awards, and co-starred opposite Mark Ruffalo and Julia Roberts in the 2014 Ryan Murphy-directed HBO film The Normal Heart (Emmy Nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor).

In recent years, Molina was seen in Tom Holloway’s play And No More Shall We Part for the Williamstown Theatre Festival (2017), Eugene O'Neill’s Pulitzer Prize winning drama A Long Day's Journey into Night for the Geffen Playhouse (2017), and Showtime’s comedy-drama series I’m Dying Up Here (2017). His credits also include the films Breakable You (2017) opposite Tony Shalhoub, Holly Hunter and Anna Paquin; Message from the King (2017) opposite Teresa Palmer and Luke Evans; A Family Man (2017) opposite Gerard Butler, The Front Runner for director Jason Reitman, indie film Saint Judy for director Sean Hanish, animated film Henchman for Bron Studios, and the much lauded Ryan Murphy produced FX series Feud: Bette and Joan (2017 / Emmy Nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor) opposite Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon. Still in the pipeline are feature films Road to Capri opposite Virginia Madsen and The Devil Has a Name for director Edward James Olmos. He has also recently wrapped on Jacob Este’s film Don’t Let Go starring Storm Reid and David Oyelowo.

Writer / Director Emerald Fennell on Bo Burnham: “His normality and charm and the kind of life that he offers Cassie is so beguiling, obviously, we needed somebody really deeply charming and charismatic to play Ryan.”

"Generally, how I approach everything, is if I could imagine someone else playing the part and be all right with it, then I tend to not do it," Carey Mulligan says of her character in Emerald Fennell.

social | @vogueaustralia “I was prepping a job and we were going to start shooting in a couple of weeks,” shares May cover star, #CareyMulligan, of the moment the world went into lockdown due to #Covid19. “I feel like we’re all going through shock and trying to readjust. I just ordered a knitting set from Amazon so I could learn to knit. I went: ‘This is the time.’” Here, Mulligan poses for a special digital cover for the May issue of #Vogue, in which she was interviewed by #MargotRobbie about a new movie they worked on together called #PromisingYoungWoman.

social | @variety At the first test screening for #PromisingYoungWoman, writer-director Emerald Fennell wanted to sit in the back so she could gauge the audience’s reaction. When the lights went down, she was stricken with terror. “I thought, ‘No, oh, my gosh, what if everyone hates it?’” she remembers. “This is a nightmare!”⁠ ⁠ And so it was. During the film’s surprising and brutal climax, two audience members entered into a shouting match, with one of them yelling, “If you don’t like it, you don’t have to stay!” The other walked out. “That’s not what you necessarily want from your first test screening,” Fennell says.⁠ ⁠ At the link in bio, Fennell and her leading lady Carey Mulligan sit down to explain how they made the most audacious, feminist, movie of the year. ⁠ ⁠ 📸: @zoemcconnell⁠ ✍: Kate Aurthur and Matt Donnelly ⁠ ⁠ -----------------------------------⁠ ⁠ Carey Mulligan ⁠ styling: Nicky Yates⁠ makeup: Jo Baker⁠ hair: Halley Briske⁠ fashion: Galvan, Jimmy Choo⁠ jewelry: Sophie Billie Brahe⁠ ⁠ Emerald Fennell⁠ styling: Colomba Giacomini⁠ makeup: Lucy Wearin⁠g hair: Hair by Bjorn Krischker/ORIBE/frankagency⁠ fashion: Roland Mouret, Malone Souliers⁠

@promisingyoungwoman

“I think people are looking to see female characters do more than just answer a phone or look sexy in a bikini, so really, whether it’s an amazing assassin or a young woman who is trying to rectify something in her past, I think generally speaking, there is still regrettably a dearth of great stuff for women to do. So yeah, I think that’s what it is.” – Director #EmeraldFennell on writing strong female stories that resonate with audiences. ➡ for more #PromisingYoungWoman #Sundance portraits from @whowhatwear.-📸: @emilysotoThe Who What Wear x Free People Lounge
