Tatiana Maslany, who won an Emmy for her role in Orphan Black, and Sebastian Stan from the Captain America and Avengers franchises along with the Oscar-buzzed-about I, Tonya, are in negotiations to join Nicole Kidman in the crime thriller Destroyer. The feature is being directed by Karyn Kusama from an original screenplay by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi. 30WEST is fully financing the film with Fred Berger of Automatik, who will be producing alongside Hay and Manfredi.

This brings the team together of Kusama, Hay and Manfredi who were behind the critically acclaimed 2015 film The Invitation.

Destroyer follows the moral and existential odyssey of LAPD detective Erin Bell who, as a young cop, was placed undercover with a gang in the California desert with tragic results. When the leader of that gang re-emerges many years later, she must work her way back through the remaining members and into her own history with them to finally reckon with the demons that destroyed her past.

Rocket Science is handling international sales, which began at the American Film Market, where Bliss Media acquired the distribution rights to Destroyer in China. ICM Partners and CAA are representing the North American rights.

The BBC America’s Orphan Black (for which Maslany won an Emmy) finished its five-series run earlier this year. Most recently, the actress starred alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in Lionsgate’s Stronger, and has also appeared in films such as The Other Half, Two Lovers and a Bear, Woman in Gold, and The Vow.

Stan portrays Tonya Harding’s disgraced husband, Jeff Gilooly in I, Tonya. 30WEST will co-distribute the film with Neon on Dec. 8th. The actor is currently filming the next installation of the Avengers series and will reprise his role of Bucky Barnes in The Winter Soldier in Avengers: Infinity War next spring. Stan has also appeared in I’m Not Here, Logan Lucky, The Martian and Black Swan.

Maslany is repped by ICM Partners and The Characters Talent Agency; Stan is by ICM Partners and Brookside Artist Management.

Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek and Tatiana Maslany Join Ryan Murphy’s ‘Pose’

The FX pilot centers on the ball culture in 1980s New York City.
Ryan Murphy’s 1980s FX drama Pose is rounding out its cast.

Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek and Tatiana Maslany have joined the pilot, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The drama looks at the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in 1980s New York: the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world.

Peters and Mara, both of whom have worked with Murphy on American Horror Story, will play a New Jersey couple named Stan and Patty who get sucked into the glamor and intrigue of ’80s New York City.

Van Der Beek will portray Stan’s financial kingpin boss. Maslany is set as a modern dance teacher who takes a special interest in the talent of Damon (previously announced cast members Ryan Jamaal Swain.)

Murphy and FX made history Wednesday when it was announced that the pilot will feature five transgender actors in a series regular roles — a scripted TV record. The castings came after a six-month nationwide casting call for the project.

Murphy co-created the show with frequent collaborator Brad Falchuk (Glee, American Horror Story) and Steven Canals. Murphy’s People v. O.J. Simpson collaborators Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson as well as Alexis Martin Woodall (The Normal Heart, Feud, American Horror Story) and Sherry Marsh (Vikings) will exec produce the drama. Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions will co-produce.

If picked up to series, this would mark Murphy’s fourth at FX, joining anthologies American Crime Story, American Horror Story and Feud. He also the upcoming Fox drama 911, set to premiere midseason.

For Peters, the role comes after frequent starring roles on various iterations of American Horror Story, where he is currently starring in season seven. The actor, whose other credits include the X-Men franchise, is repped by CAA and Ziffren Brittenham.

If picked up to series, Pose would be Mara’s first series regular role since Netflix’s House of Cards. In addition to appearing on the first season of AHS, her other credits include We Are Marshall, Shooter, Brokeback Mountain and the Fantastic Four reboot. She is repped by UTA, Mosaic, and Stone, Genow, Smelkinson, Binder & Christopher, LLP.

Van Der Beek joins the Murphy-verse after most recently playing a fictional version of DJ Diplo in Vice’s first scripted series, What Would Diplo Do? The Paradigm-repped actor’s many other TV credits include Dawson’s Creek, Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, Criminal Minds and CSI: Cyber.

Pose would mark Maslany’s first TV role since Orphan Black ended its run in five-season run in August. She earned an Emmy award for best actress in a drama for her work in the BBC America series and also recently starred in the Boston Marathon drama Stronger. She is repped by ICM and The Characters in Canada.

Thanks to the lovely creators of Orphan Black we have a new season 2 blooper reel! ahhhh! So exciting. I miss this show so much.



Happy Birthday, Tatiana! Hope you have a wonderful birthday. I know that your presence on screen has changed my life and I thank you for that.

In lieu of Tatiana’s birthday I have added some very rare photos to the gallery along with a few more additions from the Emmy’s. Enjoy and please credit the site if you repost. It took me ages to track some of these down. Thanks!



After juggling the nuances of numerous clones on TV’s “Orphan Black,” Emmy winner Tatiana Maslany tried to strike a different balance for the Boston Marathon bombing drama “Stronger.”

The Regina-raised actress plays Erin Hurley, a real person who helped her boyfriend Jeff Bauman through physical therapy and drinking problems after he lost his legs in the explosion more than four years ago.

Preparing for the part left her confronting the “emotional tricky territory” of Hurley’s actual life, she said, and deciding how to navigate between truth and interpretation. Lead actor Jake Gyllenhaal, who plays Bauman in the film, was experiencing similar apprehension about his role.

“Jake often talks about this fraudulent feeling because we’re only interpreting a story that somebody actually went through,” she said in an interview at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month.

“(But) I wasn’t seeking to do an impression of her … There’s a point where it’s about the script as opposed to paying homage to the real people.”

“Stronger” is based on Bauman’s 2014 memoir, which recounts the battle with his own demons while the public is painting him as a hero. Hurley is present throughout much of the tumult, often serving as Bauman’s emotional support or a staggering dose of reality.

Many of the film’s most intense moments play out between Gyllenhaal and Maslany as she pressures him to focus on his recovery, while he spirals into alcoholism and ignores his post-traumatic stress disorder. Gyllenhaal spent considerable time in Boston studying Bauman’s physical movements, but trying to accurately capture his physical pain wasn’t easy.

“Every time I think about the preparation for this role I sort of knew I was set out to fail,” the actor said.

“I would never be able to get close to the pain or understand it really … There’s no pretending that would touch the real thing.”

Oscar prognosticators, however, seem convinced that Gyllenhaal pulled it off. He’s been widely touted as one of the contenders for this year’s best actor race. Maslany smiles when asked about the awards buzz. She says she can’t help but draw parallels with the movie, where the word “hero” is tossed around by outsiders who knew little about what happened when the spotlight turned off.

“The film we’re doing talks about all that noise on the outside,” she said. “There’s this weird duality to the two things.”

“Stronger” opens in theatres on Friday.

When Tatiana Maslany first learned she’d been cast opposite Jake Gyllenhaal in the biopic Stronger, she started running. She still hasn’t stopped.

The Canadian actress, famous for five seasons of Orphan Black, stars in Stronger as Erin Hurley, who was running the Boston Marathon in 2013 when terrorists detonated two bombs near the finish line. Hurley wasn’t hurt, but her boyfriend, Jeff Bauman (played by Gyllenhaal), lost both legs in the attack.

Speaking at the Toronto International Film Festival, where Stronger had its world premiere, Maslany says she was able to spend time with Hurley, and also credits a strong screenplay by John Pollono, itself based on a book by Bauman. But running was a big part of getting into the part.

“I ran every morning, and that was this meditative time that I could just be in that character and daydream and imagine,” she says. “Every time I do, she invariably pops into my head – the character and real Erin.”

She continues to run today. “It would be cool to be able to be at the point where I wasn’t fighting being in my body,” she says. “Because right now it’s just coming up against the limits of what I’m able to do.”

Gyllenhaal faced his own challenges, playing an able-bodied man who becomes a double-amputee. “The pain I knew I would never be able to get close to,” he says. “Every time I think about the preparation for this role, I sort of knew I was set out to fail. There’s nothing I could get at by pretending that was going to touch the real thing.”

Even so, he studied not just the consequences of amputation, but all the procedures and processes around it. “I could understand the effects on the body,” he says. “I could understand the effects of the painkillers on the body, even the pallor of one’s skin and what those drugs do to you during recovery.”

Humour helped, both on the set and in the finished film. (In a laugh-out-loud moment drawn from real life, Bauman’s first statement in hospital, after asking “Is Erin OK?” is a reference to Gary Sinise’s Lieutenant Dan character in Forrest Gump, who also loses both legs.)

Maslany also remembers the day she had a throwaway scene that involved asking a waitress if she could settle her bill. Director David Gordon Green decided not to make it easy.

“He just kept giving her these weird-ass lines to say to me. It was the simplest scene and she was a day player – he didn’t have to do that. But I think he’s so intrigued by what any moment could open up, and what any off-kilter thing could do to the performance. He keeps you off-kilter all the time. It’s a really great way to work. You never know what’s going to come at you and you never know how you’re going to react to it.”
