How Cameron Crowe Made a David Crosby Documentary and Found His Future

How Cameron Crowe Made a David Crosby Documentary and Found His Future
David Crosby has shaped Cameron Crowe’s life. The first time he interviewed the musician, it was 1976 and Crowe was an 18-year-old Rolling Stone wunderkind. Now Crowe is 62, and he says that producing “David Crosby: Remember My Name” is the project that will determine his future.

“Weirdly, the Crosby project is the thing you do because you can’t not do it,” he said. “It became the thing that helped guide the path. I went with what I was interested in. I want to make movies that way. I want to to be curious and tell the story, and I don’t want to play the game to tell the story if it overwhelms the story.”

When Crowe ran into the aging rocker in the hallway at J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot offices, Crosby was with Jill Mazursky; she was producing A.J. Eaton’s documentary about him, and asked Crowe to

Cameron Crowe Picks Five Favorite Underrated David Crosby Tracks
“Music is love,” as David Crosby once sang, and nothing breeds deeper love than a sense that something is overlooked. So that’s why Variety asked Cameron Crowe to dig deep into the Crosby canon and pick not just a triad but five favorites from among the Csn singer’s most underrated tracks.

Crowe, of course, has had a lot of time to consider the catalog in the last few years, having signed on as an interviewer and producer for “David Crosby: Remember My Name,” the newly released documentary directed by A.J. Eaton. Several of these less heralded tracks appear in the film, so if you want to know what earworms were going through the journalist-turned-director’s mind on the way to his Q&As with Crosby, here’s his mini-playlist of slightly lost classics and oddities.

Will a Black ‘Little Mermaid’ Flip the Script on White Actresses in Hollywood? (Guest Blog)

Will a Black ‘Little Mermaid’ Flip the Script on White Actresses in Hollywood? (Guest Blog)
Nearly two decades after he helped bring back the movie musical with Best Picture Oscar winner “Chicago,” director Rob Marshall has made Hollywood history again. By casting 19-year-old singer Halle Bailey as Ariel in his upcoming remake of the 1989 animated film “The Little Mermaid,” he’s about to give the big-screen its first black live-action Disney princess.

What took Hollywood’s casting agents so long to appreciate what’s always been right in front of them? We’ve seen one animated black Disney princess before, but Tiana in 2009’s “The Princess and the Frog” came only after other princesses of color — Chinese Mulan, Native American Pocahontas, and “Aladdin” Arabic heroine Jasmine — made their debuts.

Although black women have been a vital part of the American fabric since the first Independence Day, they continue to be far too under-represented and misrepresented on screen. For years, they were relegated to thankless maid and mammy roles,

Who Can Play What Roles Now? 10 Top Decision-Makers On the Politics of Casting in Hollywood
Over the past couple of years, casting in films and TV has been scrutinized with an intensity never seen before. When a role is whitewashed (such as in Ghost in the Shell or Aloha), audiences are quick to take to social media to express their disappointment. And as the awareness and demand for more representation in stories has grown, so has the demand for casting to reflect those stories. But with this new creative landscape comes plenty of questions about who can play what. Can a straight actor play a gay character? Can a Korean actor play Bruce Lee? THR spoke to 11 top ...

I Am the Night Episode 5 Review: Aloha

I Am the Night episode 5, "Aloha," says goodbye and hello to a recurring past.

Culture

This I Am the Night review contains spoilers.

I Am the Night Episode 5

I Am the Night episode 5, "Aloha," opens at Dr. George Hodel's (Jefferson Mays) 1949 incest trial. A psychiatric expert is explaining how 14-year-old Tamar suffers from a kind of dementia that causes delusions of grandeur and comes from a mania for sex. This was apparent even when Tama was 11. The daughter has been making up stories about her father for a long time, and the list of accusations includes the Black Dahlia murder, the testimony continues.

The series has a lot of ground to cover in the George Hodel backstory, most of which directly affects how we see the main character, Fauna Hodel (India Eisley), his granddaughter. Jay Singletary (Chris Pine) covered the original trial. It destroyed his career. As he drops off

Cameron Crowe Responds to Emma Stone’s ‘I’m Sorry!’ at the Golden Globes for ‘Aloha’ Role

Cameron Crowe Responds to Emma Stone’s ‘I’m Sorry!’ at the Golden Globes for ‘Aloha’ Role
When Emma Stone shouted “I’m sorry!” following a Sandra Oh monologue joke at this year’s Golden Globe Awards, the director of the film that led to her part in the controversy heard it happen.

Cameron Crowe, whose 2015 feature “Aloha” cast Stone as a character of partial Asian descent, talked about the moment on Friday with managing editor Christian Blauvelt at the IndieWire Sundance Studio, presented by Dropbox.

“We worked on the character for about a year. The fact that she would find any turbulence and that that would happen is heartbreaking to me,” Crowe said. “So, lessons learned. And you’ll see them in the next movie.”

Following the film’s release, Stone’s character became a prominent example of Hollywood’s practice of “whitewashing” film and TV roles, the term for casting white actors as characters of color. A joke about the topic from Oh — she said

Karen Chee on Writing for the Golden Globes and Crying at Sandra Oh’s ‘Unabashedly Korean’ Moment

  • Variety
Growing up, Karen Chee looked up to Sandra Oh as “often the only Asian person” she could see on screen. Fast forward to 2019, and the 23-year-old Korean-American comedian got to write jokes for co-hosts Oh and Andy Samberg at the Golden Globe Awards.

Chee, who has written for the New Yorker and the upcoming Reductress pilot on Comedy Central went through the typical channels to score the gig, but also tweeted at Oh to make her appeal public (while wearing a t-shirt bearing Oh’s “It’s an honor just to be Asian” line from the Emmys).

The tweet got support from fellow comics including Ronny Chieng of “The Daily Show,” as well as “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” writer Ariel Dumas, who chimed in and vouched for her talent. Chee tells Variety this moment is not lost on her in terms of what it means for increased public

Emma Stone Shouted ‘I’m Sorry’ When Called Out for ‘Aloha’ Whitewashing at the Golden Globes

Emma Stone Shouted ‘I’m Sorry’ When Called Out for ‘Aloha’ Whitewashing at the Golden Globes
Emma Stone has confirmed to the Los Angeles Times she was the one viewers heard yelling “I’m sorry!” after 2019 Golden Globes hosts Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh made a joke about her casting in the 2015 Cameron Crowe romantic-comedy “Aloha.” Oh was giving praise to “Crazy Rich Asians” when she joked, “[The film] is the first studio film with an Asian-American lead since ‘Ghost in the Shell’ and ‘Aloha.'” Stone promptly yelled out an apology.

“It wasn’t like I planned it, but I did say it,” Stone told the Times.

“Aloha” has long been one of Hollywood’s most egregious examples of whitewashing after casting Stone as Air Force pilot Allison Ng, a character who is meant to be of one quarter Chinese and one quarter Hawaiian descent. Stone didn’t take long to apologize, reacting to the whitewashing backlash in 2015 by saying she was sorry and that the casting

Golden Globes Review: Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh’s Goodwill Only Goes So Far in a Rushed, Confounding Night

Golden Globes Review: Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh’s Goodwill Only Goes So Far in a Rushed, Confounding Night
Right from the start, Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh did what great hosts do: They set the tone, and then they stuck to it. But even though that spirit came straight from the heart — no Ricky Gervais-style roasting, no Sandra “Oh Snap!”, and no Andy Slams Nerds — it didn’t connect at the same level throughout the night. Even though the 2019 Golden Globes were everything their reputation promised going in — surprising, pretty weird, and largely positive — they were far from smooth, often awkward, and too rushed. Moreover, the winners and show’s structure often abandoned the host’s attempts to do the right thing, as TV was bumped by the way side while film honored two controversial entries.

TV’s top two categories were dismissed quickly. “The Americans” was the fourth trophy handed out, and after that surprise win, things took a turn for the worse: The Best Comedy

The 2019 Golden Globe Awards came and went, and they sure were filled with plenty of great moments. From Lady Gaga speaking out about being a woman in music and Regina King's powerful speech about gender parity to fake proposals and name mispronunciations, a lot happened on TV that warranted some big discussions. Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh hosted the show and began their monologue with some epic roasts of fellow actors, including Emma Stone who told the Killing Eve star she was "sorry" about her role in the film Aloha.

Emma Stone Apologizes (Again) for ‘Aloha’ at Golden Globes
Emma Stone apologized once again for “Aloha” after Sandra Oh made a joke about the film during the Golden Globes monologue.

Oh, who co-hosted this year’s ceremony with Andy Samberg, quipped that “Crazy Rich Asians” was “the first studio film with an Asian American lead since ‘Ghost in the Shell’ and ‘Aloha.'”

Stone portrayed a part-Hawaiian and part-Chinese woman in Cameron Crowe’s 2015 film “Aloha,” which garnered criticism for whitewashing an Asian role. “I’m sorry!” Stone was heard shouting from the audience.

Golden Globes 2019: Watch Andy Samberg, Sandra Oh’s Clever Monologue
Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh opened the 2019 Golden Globes with a delightful monologue that managed to both celebrate and lightly singe the assembled nominees.

The duo kicked off the festivities with what they advertised as a classic Hollywood roast, though their tactics were a far cry from the scorched-earth approach taken by previous hosts like Ricky Gervais. Instead, Oh and Samberg dished out “sick burns” like, “Hey Bradley Cooper — you’re hot” and “Michael B. Jordan, more like Michael be buff Af — you a snack, Michael!”

Golden Globes Monologue: Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg Play Nice in Their Opening Jokes
Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg wasted no time making an impression on Sunday night at the Golden Globes. On stage at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, the hosts for the 76th edition of the awards delivered a monologue that played on their reputations for being nice.

Most of the material followed the traditional award show format, with the hosts singling out nominees and poking fun at certain industry members not present at the ceremony. Only this time, Sandberg and Oh flipped the convention and reversed-roasted a handful of people in the room. The most succinct version: “Bradley Cooper…you are hot.”

They also referenced a frequent sentiment that Lady Gaga had expressed in press appearances for “A Star is Born.”

Crazy Rich Asians” landed a few mentions in the monologue, with Oh joking that the romcom hit was “the first studio film with an Asian-American lead since ‘Ghost in the Shell’ and ‘Aloha.
