SpeakEasy – Former “Harry Potter” villain Tom Felton has signed on to star in the premiere episode of “Full Circle,” a 10-episode miniseries opposite Minka Kellydebuting in full Oct. 9 on DirecTV Everywhere, which allows consumers to watch television on their smartphone, tablet, or computer.
The show marks playwright/director Neil LaBute’s television debut, and revolves around 11 characters whose lives are intertwined.
The series takes place in a restaurant called Ellipsis, with each episode following one conversation between two characters. One of those characters carries over into the following episode.
Felton stars as Tom, a 20-year-old British college student who is leaving Los Angeles, but before he does, he has one final dinner with Bridgette. During the meal, he attempts to convince her to leave her husband and elope with him.
David Boreanaz, Billy Campbell, Cheyenne Jackson, Julian McMahon, Keke Palmer, Ally Sheedy and Kate Walsh also signed on to star in the series.
Felton phoned Speakeasy to discuss starring in the first and last episodes of the series, his true feelings on Los Angeles and how binge viewing is changing the entertainment landscape.
How did you prepare for this role? It’s decidedly different than your film work.
Tom Felton: We shot this all on the day. Minka and I met each other two days before we shot to familiarize ourselves with the text. Physically speaking, we only had one dress rehearsal and in a weird way I think that helped. It was a situation that was never supposed to be the most comfortable of dinners. A lot of the stuff is physically about being in the moment.
On August 26th, like we’ve already reported here, Tom visited Young Hollywood studio to talk about DirectTV’s Full Circle. Now you can watch the interview of Tom, Keke Palmer, and Noah Silver below.
Full Circle will broadcast on 9th October 2013 at 9:00 PM ET / 9:30 PM PT on DirecTV’s exclusive channel, Audience.
Bello Magazine posted another teaser of upcoming issue of their magazine featuring Tom Felton on their instagram. Check out how great the teaser of Tom in here.
The Columbus Dispatch – Much to his satisfaction, Tom Felton has discovered life after Harry Potter.
The young British actor played the devious Draco Malfoy in all seven films of the series, spanning 2001 to 2011.
He has worked steadily since, turning up recently in Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011), The Apparition (2012) and two episodes of the upcoming miniseries Full Circle.
And he has several additional projects in the hopper.
“Going back awhile, even to the fourth and fifth Potter films,” Felton said, “I don’t remember actively thinking, ‘I want to do this for the rest of my life.’ It was never something that I embraced and thought, ‘I really want to do this.’”
At that point, though, he began thinking about his future, he said.
“It was probably during the sixth film, when I was 18 or 19, that I had an appreciation for, A, how lucky I was and, B, for what I was doing. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the process.
Deadline – TNT has greenlit Murder in the First, a new scripted drama from Emmy®-winner Steven Bochco and starring Taye Diggs (Private Practice) and Kathleen Robertson (Boss). Co-created by Bochco and Eric Lodal (The Locrian Mode), Murder in the First also stars Tom Felton (Harry Potter), Mimi Kirkland (Safe Haven), Raphael Sbarge (Once Upon a Time), Ian Anthony Dale (Hawaii Five-0), Bess Rous (What Just Happened) and Steven Weber (Dallas, Wings).
TNT has ordered 10 episodes of Murder in the First, which is being produced by TNT Originals. Bochco serves as executive producer, with Lodal as co-executive producer. The series is slated to premiere on TNT in summer 2014. TBS International will handle distribution to regions outside the United States and Canada.
Set in San Francisco, Murder in the First will follow a single case across an entire season. The drama centers on homicide detectives Terry English (Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Robertson) as they investigate the murder of an apparent drug addict. The mystery deepens, however, when the victim is found to have a connection to Silicon Valley wunderkind Erich Blunt (Felton), the celebrated CEO of a cutting-edge tech firm. The timing couldn’t be worse for Blunt, who is preparing to take his company public. He’s also being sued by a software developer who claims Blunt stole his code for a revolutionary new hologram system.
DirectTV released another behind the scenes video and a full trailer of Tom’s upcoming tv series, Full Circle. Watch the videos below.
Tom Wilkinson, Emily Watson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and the all-star cast of Amma Asante‘s drama praise the director for attention to detail in their movie.
“I would say she is a genius. She is so direct in what she wanted and I don’t think there is any fat on the movie whatsoever,” says Sam Reid.
Last night Tom also attended ‘One Chance’ Premiere and the Grey Goose vodka party for The Weinstein Company and eOn Entertainments ‘August: Osage County’ and ‘One Chance’ at Soho House Toronto, I’ve added the photos from both events to the gallery with some of them donated by Dianne.
