Just before tonight's [italic]True Blood[/italic], HBO ran a preview for the upcoming season of [italic]Boardwalk Empire[/italic], which will premiere in September.

I feel I couldn't give a fuck about the series?

Any other Dataloungers feeling the same?

Do you give a shit about the upcoming season and what happens with these characters from the past?

by Anonymousreply 18309/28/2013

Many people are captivated by "characters from the past" OP. What an absurd question.

Can't wait for Season 4 of Boardwalk Empire, nothing like it on television.

by Anonymousreply 107/29/2013

I love Boardwalk Empire and the production is stellar in capturing the period.

by Anonymousreply 207/29/2013

awesome additions to the cast at least judging from the trailer.

Jeffery Wright is fantastic.

Who is the guy at the very beginning? The "middleman" ? Is that is a new character? I have seen him somewhere but I don't think he was on last season.

Oh and Patricia Arquette is on this season.

by Anonymousreply 307/29/2013

that preview is killer. Love the music, love the new characters.

Love all the Harlem stuff.

The character at the top of the preview is a brand new character.

Music is Saint Motel and Peach Kings.

My friend's partner works at HBO. He told us Mark Walberg has next to nothing to do with the show. It is all Martin Scorcese and Terrence Winter.

Anyone remember "White Shadow" TV show from the 70's? on of the Van Patten's was a smoking hot teen and is now a director on the show.

According to friends partner, the execs are very excited about the first episode of season 4. They think it is the best so far and they are going to promote the hell out of it.

Jeffrey Wright is playing a character called Narcise. Can't wait to see him in this. He's a brilliant actor.

I gather that Margaret will be in NY for the season living with her brother and paying his rent.

That trailer got me interested in Boardwalk Empire again.

I was a little bored with season 2 but I watched the first two episodes of season 3 last night on HBO GO and I am hooked. The period is becoming more fascinating to me and Buscemi is growing on me.

I guess viewers complain about Margaret but I like the character. Too bad about Owen. He has some full frontal scenes in Season 3 but I haven't seen them yet.

on Boardwalk Empire it is the casting of the smaller characters that really makes it special. The are usually very interesting and very well played. The character of Van Alden's first wife is one, the character of Gaston Means etc.

The casting agent should get an Emmy.

Are you fucking joking, OP? This is one of the best shows on television and last season's finale, the bloodbath at the whore house, was simply riveting (especially Gretchen Mol). I can't wait for the new season. The production values on that show are so high calibre and the acting is frequently stellar. Looking forward to Patricia Arquette's character.

by Anonymousreply 1907/30/2013

Where could they possibly go with Gillian [Gretchen Mol's character] I saw her in the preview so she is on season 4.

I hear Gretchen Mol is very nice and down to earth. My friend went to an off-Broadway play she was doing last year and she was very nice to him after.

Any behind the scenes Boardwalk gossip? Does the cast get alone? I would imagine they do.

by Anonymousreply 2007/30/2013

by Anonymousreply 2807/31/2013

Someone I know who works on it says it's going to be a very different show this season. Chalky becomes almost equal in prominence on the show as Nucky- he opens up a nightclub called The Onyx to replace Babette's. It will have all black waitstaff but then will change from having white performers to black ones. I gather that was a big development in 1924.

Great production, direction and cast. But after they killed James Darmody the show was dead to me.

by Anonymousreply 3508/01/2013

I think Richard Harrow is kind of taking over the soul part of the show that Jimmy occupied except Harrow is a much darker more mysterious character.

I liked Darmody. I liked Michael Pitt in the part. From what I have read here, I guess Pitt was giving the production too much trouble and they chose to let the character go.

Too bad but the show is still great without him.

by Anonymousreply 3608/01/2013

This is a show that gets better with every season - I agree the first season was difficult. It felt more like homework than entertainment. But worth the investment.

My initial problem was casting Steve Buschemi in the lead - he reads character actor all the way, but once you get over that hurdle you're in.

Also, you need to pay attention.

I agree completely with this. I really wish they had done like they did with The Sopranos with Tony...found a sort of unknown like Gandolfini...Buscemi is great in character roles but he is just too physically repulsive to be a ladies' man and a charismatic leader.

Pitt was a major disruption on production, according to my friend. This was not evident in Season 1, just Season 2. He wouldn't know his lines, he wouldn't take direction and he ended up costing production money. On the last day he filmed, which was Jimmy's murder, they actually added a shot at the last minute where Jimmy's body was dragged in the mud by a car in the pounding rain. And they didn't use a photo double for Pitt. That was Terence Winter's final "Fuck you, we're done with you." The shot was never intended to air.

R48 it was just terrible. Terrible. Nucky's wife was pregnant with Charlie's baby, too. They were going to run off. But then Nucky and Charlie were going to kill these mobsters, so Charlie went with some other guy to do the deed, except things went awry, and the next morning, a huge crate was delivered to Nucky's apartment, and Charlie was in it pieces. I was really pissed. I think I threw something at the TV. It was disgusting. Vile, really.

r47 questions for your "friend" if you don't mind.

Has you friend seen the first episode? My BF's friend works for HBO and he told us the execs were like whooping and hollering about how great the first episode of season 4 is. True?

Also what are Michael Shannon and Gretchen Mol like to work with>?

I just want to say that casting Steve Buscemi as Nucky was not something I understood at first but I do now. I think part of the idea is that he is a kind of two bit guy who rises to the top on cunning, not on charm and charisma. I think the real life Nucky was that type of guy if I am not mistaken.

To put a very attractive or very sexually charismatic actor in that part would have distorted the story.

r55, I think you at least have to know who the characters are and some of the background. If you get HBO, you can watch Season 3 on HBO GO or on demand.

The other seasons might be up as well. Or you could just read the recaps of the first three seasons.

Does anyone know if Charlie Cox left because he wanted to or did the writers just decide it was time for him to go?

by Anonymousreply 5608/03/2013

r46 where is the Western Electric sign? Which episode.

by Anonymousreply 5708/03/2013

Well, first, I have to say that when it first came on, I felt the same way as R52 about Steve Buscemi. I was never a Michael Pitt fan either. So a barely sat thru the first episode and walked away from it.

Then I got bored. By that time there were two seasons in the can. I decided to watch it. I watched the entire Seasons 1 & 2 back to back and couldn't wait for season 3 to start.

You need to watch it from the beginning. That's my opinion, but it's important. You really need to see the way certain characters evolve. Building the relationships gives context to everything that happens in season 3 & likely 4.

My personal opinion, with Charlie Cox, is that his leaving was inevitable. At some point he had to realize that himself, based on who his character was, and based on what he did in terms of the story arc.

From the moment we meet him we know he is a killer. He's lethal. IRA executioner. And you fall in love with his Irish charm. My gods, he sounded like Colin Farrell and he was irresistible. Quite the ladies' man. A cocky lad, could talk holes in your head. You're supposed to feel his loss as keenly as Nucky's wife does.

It's the same with Bobby Canavale's character. You knew that eventually this would happen but getting there was quite a ride. I think the series does a really excellent job of building suspense and catching you in unexpected ways.

R52, yes, everyone is very happy with Episode #401, directed by Tim Van Patten. The season itself is going extremely well although my friend says everybody on the crew is beyond exhausted. It wraps in 5 weeks.

He says Michael Shannon and Gretchen Mol are fine to work with, both are quiet and focused. The only bad apples in the Boardwalk cast were Pitt and Paz de la Huerta and they're long gone. And it's unlikely Paz will return. She's apparently insane. But then again it's pretty much public record that she is.

Those of us who aren't thrilled with Buscemi in this role weren't asking for a pretty boy, but at least a Gandolfini type, who isn't classically handsome or pretty but has a charm and charisma, and doesn't look like Lon Chaney in the Phantom of the Opera.

by Anonymousreply 6808/05/2013

but isn't that part of the story r68? If Nucky is charismatic in the sense you are talking about he is much it becomes a different story. Nucky was an average two bit guy who rose on cunning not on being a people magnet.

I think Buscemi is a strong enough presence to hold the thing together without making Boardwalk Empire a one man personality driven thing.

A few questions for the Boardwalk Empire insider if he/she is still around.

Is it true Buscemi was the only actor ever considered for Nucky? I heard an interview in which the creator said he was. I like Buscemi, but I am curious if they considered anyone else?

Also, what specific things did Paz and Pitt do that caused them to be written out? Do you have any specific stories?

And lastly, Do you know the name of the actor in the opening segment of the trailer. The one who says "I am a middleman" I know I have seen him somewhere.

The thing to remember is that this is a sort of behind the scenes look at one slice of the developing organized crime operations that b became so famous. There have been a lot of TV and film versions of various events, but nothing from the perspective of one powerful mobster based in Atlantic City New Jersey. I remember the Elliot Ness/Untouchables, the various Capone movies, the movie Hoodlum, about Bumpy Johnson's rise in Harlem, The Cotton Club, which was excellent, Mobsters, etc.

When I first saw Episode 1 Season 1, I couldn't get into it. Wasn't a Steve Buscemi fan & didn't care for Michael Pitt. Later, I watched seasons 1&2 and became addicted. It's historically accurate and fascinating. Very well done. I love it.

Love it that they are exploring Harlem and giving more time to people of color. It looks as though they are showing more of the country as well with the "Western Electric" sign in the trailer.

I love this show and I can't believe how excited I am it is coming back on.

I think they got a bit misdirected with Margaret and the hospital stuff, it seemed kind of Lifetimey to me but looks like they are back on track with gangsters big and small and 1920s America.

I know Boardwalk Empire films in Staten Island [among other places] But where in SI? They should do a "BE Bus tour" ala Sex in the City"

GAWD that trailer kills, literally I know but if you pay attention most trailers for tv shows are very boring and predictable. This one is genuinely exciting.

by Anonymousreply 12108/11/2013

My friend was an intern in the Boardwalk Empire production office and said that it is actually a very nice place to work.

He also said that last winter in blizzard conditions several well known actors made their way out to the remote studio in Brooklyn to AUDITION for the first episode including Linus Roache from Law & Ordar and Lee Tergesen from OZ and Terry Kinney from OZ and the guy who plays Jackie's husband on Nurse Jackie.

He said name actors who might not normally audition are willing to do whatever they have to do to get on Boardwalk Empire.

He also told me that the men's period suits are made by Scorcese's personal tailor.

by Anonymousreply 12208/11/2013

I don't think any of the people you named are announced for the show r123.

btw, Boardwalk Empire is very popular in the UK

by Anonymousreply 12308/11/2013

r75 since you seem to be in the "know" about the new actors on the show: Who is the blonde Nucky is talking to? New love interest?

This "Kings" trailer btw, is awesome it is like a little Scorcese movie

by Anonymousreply 12408/15/2013

At worst, every episode is a pretty fascinating time machine trip, and often it's more than that. It's not my favorite show, but I'm far from burnt out on it.

by Anonymousreply 12508/15/2013

it's a fascinating glimpse into the sick and corrupt world of straight people!

Seriously, I love the show and find it surprising more of the gays aren't into it

by Anonymousreply 12608/15/2013

so I read that Season 4 will feature all new sets in addition to several new characters.

I guess essentially that means one thing: No more Margaret wandering mournfully through her mansion.

Agree that the " Kings" trailer is like a mini Scorcesse movie, good way to put it. It feels self contained but makes me want to watch the show.

Other HBO trailers like the one for Newsroom where they are all self importantly wandering through the tundra make me ashamed to watch the show.

by Anonymousreply 12708/15/2013

Did Scorsese create the "Kings" trailer?

This definitely has an excitement and a tautness characteristic of his movies.

by Anonymousreply 12808/15/2013

R123, I think the actors mentioned in R122's post were up for the role that Ron Livingston is playing in Season 4. Linus Roache would be a fantastic addition to Boardwalk as a new love interest for Margaret.

Chalky and Valentin Narcise are going to both have an affair with a performer at Onyx who bears more than a passing resemblance to Josephine Baker.

by Anonymousreply 12908/15/2013

r129 when does the cast get shown the first episode of Season 4? Do they see it first at the premiere?

Speaking of which, when is the red carpet/premiere for Boardwalk Empire Season 4? and does Vince/Lucky need a date?


by Anonymousreply 13008/16/2013

somewhat OT, but I saw Steve Buscemi's ass in a gym locker room in the late 90's. He wasn't displaying, I am just a perv.

Remarkable ass I must say.

r129 where do you get your information? More please.

Are they going to release anymore clips before the 8th of September?

Love the trailer. With the harlem stuff and the midwest stuff this could breathe a whole new life into a show that was already great.

by Anonymousreply 13108/16/2013

Remarkable in a good way r131?

Seems like there are many new characters this season. I wonder how far in the future Boardwalk Empire is prepared to go? I guess they would like to close out prohibition.

As long as it is a ratings winner HBO will put up the cash.

When is the Ted carpet premier at the Ziegfeld?

by Anonymousreply 13308/21/2013

The Ted carpet?

The RED carpet event is usually at the Zeigfeld in NYC but I don't know where they are having it this year.

Those red carpets without Paz are like Christmas without the presents.

Can't they bring her back just for the prem?

by Anonymousreply 13408/22/2013

What did Paz do? Show her cooch? I remember she showed some titty at some event where she was loaded.

I thought she was good on the show though and killer bod.

btw, as a dyke I can tell you even I would give Jack Houston a go.

by Anonymousreply 13508/22/2013

This is the ONLY preview that ever made me want to watch a show I wasn't already watching. Something about the progression, the music, the lack of explaining what was going on etc. made me very curious.

I watched Seasons 1 & 2 on HBO go because of this trailer and I am watching 3 this week. Can't wait for the 8th.

so Bloomberg news is giving the season 4 premiere 5 stars [highest rating]

Have they already sent the first episode to the critics or is this guy talking out his ass?

HBO does release the first five episodes to press but I don't think they do it this early.

by Anonymousreply 14008/27/2013

OMG r75, I watched that trailer on HBO and didn't recognize James Riordan until I read your post and looked at it again.

I know him, kinda.. my sister went to college with him. Very blue eyes is what I remember. Is he going to be on the whole season?

by Anonymousreply 14108/28/2013

r139, it is very possible the critic did see the first few episodes. Since the premiere is a week from Sunday.

I am sure HBO sends the episodes for reviewers well in advance to give them time to watch them.

I am happy that Chalky is going to be a major player this season. I like the actor.

Wonder what is up with Richard Harrow this season. How do you top last year's killing spree?

by Anonymousreply 14308/28/2013

Harrow needs to have plenty to do this season to keep me interested.

by Anonymousreply 14408/28/2013

one of the VP's on my floor keeps repeating "only Kings understand each other" in the WORST Jefferey Wright impression imaginable. Imagine my hell.

Agree about Harrow getting more screen time r144.

I googled James Riordan and he is much more handsome on the internet movie database than he is in this trailer.

Slow day at work.

by Anonymousreply 14508/28/2013

r145, I asked my boss how a meeting with a potential client went yesterday and he actually said "only kings understand each other"

Unfortunately he didn't say it like he was making a joke or referencing a tv show.

Jack Huston is undeniably hot but that Yves Saint Laurent video is ridiculously pretentious. I guess they all are.

I love him on Boardwalk Empire though and hope his storyline is prominent this season.

Liza and Patti Smith are singing on the soundtrack for Season 4 and it has just been released for streaming.

Liza sings " You've Got to See Mama Every Night"

Patti sings "I ain't got nobody"

What does the DL think? Pretty gay moment I'd say.

by Anonymousreply 15208/29/2013

the real revelation in that article r152 is that Paz has WRITTEN A BOOK and said book is entitled

" The Birds Don't Die In The Winter"

Can we cast the lifetime movie that will arise from this?

by Anonymousreply 15308/29/2013


For those Harrow fans: A report from HuffPost

"As For Richard Harrow And Van Alden...

The producers and publicity team were tight-lipped when we asked about the Richard Harrow and Van Alden developments in Season 4 -- so rest assured some big things are going to happen for them/to them/with them. We just don't know what, exactly. But if the powers-that-be are mum about two characters only, then something good must be coming.

by Anonymousreply 15408/29/2013

Yeah but when is the red carpet in NYC?

by Anonymousreply 15508/29/2013

I worked with Jack Huston on the production end of "Kill Your Darlings" he could not have been sweeter or more cooperative and he is an excellent actor. He was put in a very difficult situation that would send most "stars" into a tizzy around press and he handled it like a true gentleman.

r141, I used to work for a major casting director who said James Riordan was the best damn actor she had ever seen but unfortunately nobody had ever heard of him so he was hard to pitch.

Hope his appearance on Boardwalk helps.

by Anonymousreply 15608/29/2013

Liza is so Fab on the Boardwalk Empire Soundtrack for season 4 released this week.

"Dyyaddee Duyear, lishen here"

classic Liza and it actually works for the period. She said in an interview she wants to appear as a character on the show.

I guess she should get something for schtupping Scorcese all those years ago.

by Anonymousreply 15708/30/2013

Best lyric in the Liza track is

"Schhhhaturday Night I shhhat at home"

Liza would be great actually doing a part on BE, bring her on Marty!

by Anonymousreply 15808/30/2013

funny r158, but that is NOT the lyric and you know it.

Apart from Liza, the best recordings are from Kathy Brier and Stephen DeRosa.

I also like Leon Redbone's but it Brier and DeRosa really capture the sound of the era.

IMHO of course

Boardwalk Empire is the gayest straight show on television. Liza, full frontal male nudity.

and those costumes.....

Needless to say I love it and can't get enough. My hope is Boardwalk Empire goes to the 1960's where Mad Men started.

Liza actually sings

"For Inshtance, Monday night I Shaatt alone"

OK, just tonight I finished (after 2 weeks) watching all 3 seasons and all the supplementary material - INCREDIBLY FACSCINATING.

I am beyond addicted to the show; I want to re-watch it all.

by Anonymousreply 16709/01/2013

yeah r167, had almost the same experience. The interviews with the writers and the creator of the show inspired me to revisit episodes I have already seen and I pick up things that totally went over my head the @first viewing.

There is a link upthread to an early review that said the first few episodes are the best ever in the series. Can't wait.

Red carpet tonight. Time Warner is streaming it through their facebook page. I don't know if you have to be a member to watch it.

The box is on the desk of the guy who says he is "the middleman" at the top of the trailer.

r156, I read there is some man to man action in "Kill Your Darlings" is Huston's character involved in any of those scenes?

I know he isn't gay but assume gay friendly?

by Anonymousreply 17509/04/2013

r175, I am not r156 but I would be VERY surprised if Jack Huston were not gay friendly. First of all he is English, which raises the odds that he as dabbled in same sex activity about 4,000 percent.

Also, considering his family and his lineage, I bet it is pretty safe to assume he has known gay people all his life.
