The Recommendation On Stage Now!

Recommendation-Poster-Email“The always excellent Shapiro demonstrates versatility and spark as the über-confident Feldman, whose fratboy charisma is tempered by a less attractive self-centeredness that Shapiro does not shy from revealing, making for yet another gem of a performance from the IAMA mainstay.”
- StageSceneLA
“The Recommendation dazzles!”
- The Hollywood Reporter

THE RECOMMENDATION tells the story of Aaron Feldman (Adam Shapiro) — smart, privileged and liked by everyone. And Iskinder (Brandon Scott), his college roommate, who is modest, unconnected and comes from a middle-class immigrant family. Soon the best of friends, Aaron takes Iskinder under his wing, sharing his world of favors and fortune. But the safe haven of college only lasts so long, and once in the real world, Aaron is thrust into a terrifying situation without his familiar safety net.
As the tables turn and he is forced to rely on an accused felon’s connections to keep him safe, both Aaron and Iskinder have to rethink the meaning of friendship and where loyalty has its limits. This new play raises questions about our so-called “post-racial” country, examines California’s prison-industrial complex, and asks whether there really must always be “haves” and “have-nots” in a modern society.
Our production of THE RECOMMENDATION will be sleek, modern, and fast-paced — allowing the characters to be front-and-center. While the play deals with thorny issues of race and class relations, it is above all the story of one friendship that hangs in the balance — something everyone can relate to. Our production will be intimate and immediate, with our narrator, Iskinder, sweeping the audience up into the greatest story he has ever told.

The First 4 Minutes of Now You See Me!

from Mashable:

Check out Adam along with Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, and Isla Fisher in this clip from NOW YOU SEE ME!

The opening sequence of Now You See Me, the upcoming thriller about a quartet of illusionists who magically give away stolen cash to audiences, is now available to watch right here before the movie’s May 31 release.

The clip introduces the film’s star magicians known as the “The Four Horsemen” — played by Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Isla Fisher.

The preview leaves us with a cliffhanger of what appears to be a botched deadly magic trick from Fisher’s character. Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo, Melanie Laurent and Michael Caine also have roles in Now You See Me.

Larry Gaye: Renegade Male Flight Attendant

Adam was cast in the screwball comedy from Night & Day Pictures, Larry Gaye: Renegade Male Flight Attendant alongside Mark Feuerstein, Danny Pudi, Jayma Mays, and Henry Winkler.
from Filmofilia.com:
Larry Gaye: Renegade Male Flight Attendant
– a completely new project which will have an awesome cast on board. So make sure you remember this title!

We’ve just learned that Mark Feuerstein, Stanley Tucci, Marcia Gay Harden, Molly Shannon, Taye Diggs and Henry Winkler are all on board for this low-budget comedy which comes from director Sam Friedlander. Not bad at all, don’t you think?

Mike Sikowitz (probably best known as writer of 8 episodes of TV series “Friends”) wrote the script for this comedy so let’s guess that nothing could go wrong with the story. And the story will center on Feuerstein’s character, a womanizing, self-anointed ‘renegade’ male flight attendant Larry Gaye who must save the day when the airline he works for tries to eliminate flight attendants as a cost-cutting measure.

One thing is for sure, Feuerstein definitely looks excited about the whole thing, since he’s already revealed:

“I can’t believe we get to make this ridiculous, fun and incredibly funny movie. This character’s not just a male flight attendant – he’s a renegade male flight attendant. Larry Gaye makes his own rules and then he breaks them!”

Anyway, at the end of this report let us also mention that Michael Roiff will produce the project via his Night & Day Pictures banner along with Ted Kroeber of Kish Prods., and the movie should start shooting this January.

As usual – we’ll keep an eye on this comedy, so make sure you stay tuned!

SCANDALous!

From TVLine:

Scandal Exclusive: Katie Lowes’ Husband Cast in ‘Surreal’ Role, as Quinn’s [Spoiler]

Art will kinda sorta (but hopefully not too much!) imitate life when Scandal cast member Katie Lowes‘ actor-husband shows up on ABC’s buzzy sophomore drama as a very important man from Quinn’s past.

Adam Shapiro, whose TV credits include Grey’s Anatomy‘s gunman-in-the-hospital two-parter and a recurring role on NBC’s new White House comedy 1600 Penn, will guest-star in at least one episode of Scandal as Lindsay Dwyer’s doomed boyfriend Jesse.

RELATED | Scandal Fall Finale Recap: A Killer Revelation

As Scandalistas know, Jesse was among the several Cytron employees killed years ago by the bomb that Lindsay was accused of mailing. As such, expect to see Shapiro in flashbacks that shed light on the couple’s happier times and the fateful frame job that robbed Lindsay of love but gave “Quinn Perkins” a second chance at life.

“Working with Adam was totally surreal and wonderful!” Lowes tells TVLine of the wink-wink casting. “We’ve done tons of theatre together over the years, but never anything like this. Plus, he might be the biggest Scandal fan ever himself, so he was jumping around like a five-year-old when he booked the part.”

Hopefully (though improbably), the marrieds’ loved ones will somehow never lay eyes on this TVLine story. “We are keeping it a secret from our families who all watch the show religiously,” she says, “so when Adam first pops up on-screen as Quinn’s boyfriend, our mothers are going to freak out!”

Scandal resumes Season 2 next Thursday, Jan. 10, with Episode 10; Shapiro debuts in Episode 12.
