Our Man Flint takes the tongue-in-cheek wit of the James Bond series and shifts it into high gear. Flint is an ultra-sophisticated operative of international intelligence agency Z.O.W.I.E. He's a master of martial arts, electronic gadgetry (his cigarette lighter can perform 83 special functions), languages both human and animal (he can communicate with dolphins in a pinch), and even gives ballet lessons to the dancers of the Bolshoi. So when his fellow agents begin dropping like flies, Z.O.W.I.E assigns Flint the task of finding out who the killers happen to be. Eventually, Flint discovers that the killings are all part of the wicked machinations of G.A.L.A.X.Y., a cadre of world-wide villainy that plans to take over the world through weather control.

Frank Zappa's New York Halloween 1981 concerts were filmed Live at The Palladium. This 'thing' entitled "The Torture Never Stops" was created in its entirety by FZ from the original concert production and intended by the Artist as one of 3 Television Specials. This is the longest version of the three – the others, "You Are What You Is" and "Dumb All Over", having actually aired. Halloween was Frank Zappa's favorite holiday, and New York was the site of Frank Zappa Halloween concerts for years! The billion and a half airings by MTV of the concerts (non-edited) followed on closely from the release of the double album "You Are What You Is" in September of that year on Frank Zappa's own recently founded and thoroughly independent label, Barking Pumpkin. Much of the set list is drawn from that work. All Frank Zappa shows were unique experiences with Zappa on guitar and baton, leading his band on flights of improvisation and drawing ever more intense performances from them. "The Torture Never Stops" cements Zappa's reputation as one of the most innovative and challenging composers and performers of the 20th century. Line-up: Frank Zappa (guitar, vocal); Ray White (vocal, guitar); Tommy Mars (keyboards, vocal); Scott Thunes (bass, vocal); Chad Wackerman (drums); Ed Mann (percussion, vocal); Bobby Martin (keyboard, sax, vocal), Steve Vai (guitar, vocal).

Max (Jamie Foxx) is a cab driver who hopes to some day open his own limo company; one night behind the wheel begins promisingly when he picks up Annie (Jada Pinkett Smith), an attorney working with the federal government who is attractive, friendly, and gives him her business card after paying her fare. Max thinks his luck is getting even better when his next fare, Vincent (Tom Cruise), offers him several hundred dollars in cash if he'll be willing to drop him off, wait, and pick him up at five different spots over the course of the evening. Max agrees, but he soon realizes Vincent isn't just another guy with errands to run — Vincent is an assassin who has been paid to murder five people who could put the leaders of a powerful drug trafficking ring behind bars in an upcoming trial. As circumstances force Max to do Vincent's bidding, the cabbie has to find a way to prevent Vincent from killing again and save his own skin, a task that becomes especially crucial when he discovers Annie is one of the names on Vincent's hit list.

Meet Byron Mann of AMC’s Hell on Wheels

2015-07-09-1436415520-1126391-ByronMann_PH_KevinThomasPhotography_Small.jpg

Byron Mann’s Twitter: @Byron_Mann , Photo by Kevin Thomas Photography

Byron Mann is the new guy on the set of AMC’s Hell on Wheels. Byron also stars in the Lionsgate actioner ABSOLUTION opposite Steven Seagal which was just released on DVD/Bluray. Byron also babysits my hatchlings, cleans my house, recites every line from my favorite 1983 mini-series “V” and reads me bedtime stories. Hey, a girl can dream!

You play Chang in the fifth season of AMC’s Hell on Wheels. What’s it like being the ‘newbie’ on set? Who was the first actor you met from the series? How’d you feel your first day on the set of Hell on Wheels?

The first actor I met on Hell on Wheels was Tim Guinee, who plays ‘Collis Huntington’ this season. He called my hotel room the second day I arrived in Calgary (where the series is shot) and actually woke up me from a nap. I had just flown in from Hong Kong the day before, and was severely jetlagged. I answered the call in a haze. He introduced himself to me, and wanted to invite me out to dinner. He told me he felt weird for actors to just land in a foreign place not knowing a single soul, so he wanted to break that pattern by cold calling other cast members like myself and inviting them to dinner. I thought that was the most gracious act any cast member has ever done for me and I’ll always remember it.

I’d never seen this show before, so I didn’t really have any expectations. However, production scheduled the most difficult day of the episode to be shot on the first day. On my first day, I had to recite pages and pages of monologue, some of which included passages from King Lear, and at the same time play poker with Anson Mount (who plays Cullen Bohannon) and Reg Rogers (who plays Jim Strobridge). Problem is: I’ve never played poker before, and trying to remember the rules of the game, my long Shakespearean monologue, and establishing my character all on the first shoot day was pretty challenging, to say the least.

Tell us a story about being tough in real life and a story about you being weak in real life.

Well, they’re both wrapped up in the same story. I was filming this movie called The Man with the Iron Fists near Shanghai, China. During the shoot, most of the crew had fallen ill to a vicious virus. I was one of the last men standing. But one day, I too caught the virus, and it made me so sick and weak, I could hardly get out of bed. I had a high fever and hadn’t eaten all day. I had to literally drag myself out of bed to the hotel restaurant to get some food in my stomach. I was so weak it took me about 30 minutes to walk from my hotel room to the hotel restaurant, which was just down the hall from my room. Now the next day, I was scheduled to film the most important scene in the movie, where I had to give an impassioned speech to rally the troops. It was pages of monologue (again!) and the speech had to have a lot of energy and passion to it. But I was so weak, I could hardly speak. I was this close to calling the producers to say I can’t show up. But I knew the scene involved hundreds of actors and extras, so doing so would cause a logistical nightmare.

So I toughed it out… The next morning, I dragged myself out of bed, popped some aspirin and got to set. I drank gallons of hot water, hoping to flush the evil virus out of my system. I mustered up whatever energy I had and gave it my all. Funny thing was: the more I did the scene, the stronger I felt. I kept telling the director (RZA) I had a high fever, but he kept going for more takes. By the end of the day, I was spent. Interestingly, I was told that that scene turned out to be one of the strongest in the film.

What’s your workout routine?

I keep it simple. No diets, no nothing. I eat as much vegetables and fruits as I can, and stay away from fried food, processed food and alcohol. In the gym, I do 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of weights. And wrap up with 15 minutes of stretching. That’s it.

What was the saddest moment of your life?

When one of my relationships ended.

Have you started work yet on the film The Big Short? How’d Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling and Steve Carell get lucky enough to be in a film with you?!

I had to Google these actors to find out who they were (just kidding). In the audition, I worked with the director Adam MacKay (Anchorman) and before I started doing the scene, he asked if I wanted to eat some chips — during the scene. I said sure, why not. So, he passed me a bag of chips and I did my scene while munching away at them. Turned out, that’s the way he envisioned the scene, my character stuffing himself with food while interacting with Steve Carell’s character. All I can tell you is on the day of our shoot, I ate an obscene amount of food.

So you know @TimGuinee ? Spill the beans.

He relaxes by walking a tight rope (I’m totally serious) and he is the biggest prankster on the Hell on Wheels set, one of which involves a set of purple dildos… (again, I’m totally serious). [READERS – what’s my fixation with Tim Guinee? He was in “V” 2009, dah!]

How do you feel about Asian representation in TV and Film today? I read somewhere that the % of Asians in TV/Film is very low. Why do you think this is?

I think that’s because we’re all silent ninjas. Seriously, I think it has to do with writers and producers — people who are writing the roles. Most of them are not Asians, so therefore, most of the characters written are not Asians. Having said that though, I have noticed that things are changing slightly with the emergence of the China market.

2015-07-09-1436416019-8732721-ByronMann_ForHuffPost_IlanaRapp_Small.jpg

Byron Mann is such a big goofball! Love the Hell on Wheels early costume sneak peak. Nice pinky, dude.

Why did you attend an all boys’ school? What was it like?

Hong Kong was an English colony, so most of the better schools are either all boys’ or all girls’ schools, patterned after the English educational system. In that system, there is something called “hazing” which means older boys can bully younger boys and get away with it. A rite of passage, if you will. So, when I was 13 years-old, I was dragged by a bunch of older boys into the “boys scout” room, which everyone knew was the “evil” room. They took our pants off and dripped wax onto our privates. And then they’d kick us out. I know it sounds horrific. Like this could be a lawsuit if this happened in the U.S. But that was the order of the day back then. It was horrific then, but now, I look back with pride that I made it out of the “boys scout” room alive.

Tell us about your family history.

Funny you asked. My ancestors are Cantonese, and they are from a district called Taishan. Most of the railroad workers who worked on the Central Pacific railroad (from San Francisco) were from Taishan. Isn’t it a wonderful coincidence that I am now filming their story on Hell on Wheels?!

Ever eat jellyfish?

All the time. Jellyfish ain’t that exotic where I come from 🙂

What are some of your pet peeves?

Incompetence in others. I don’t expect everyone to be a genius, but people should follow through with what they say they will do. And dishonesty. That’s a deal-breaker.

Do you have a special method for memorizing your lines?

I only read scripts on paper. I learn my lines usually by doing something physical. Like driving a car or washing dishes. If I’m really in a time crunch, I lock myself in my bathroom and learn my lines inside there. Don’t ask me why, but it works.

Did you grow up religious? What about now?

Yes, I grew up in a Christian family. I still subscribe to the faith today. I find that most people become religious when they find out they have cancer. Just an observation.

Anything else you’d like to say?

Sally Mann on Her New Memoir, Shooting Digital, and the Fate of Art Photography in the Age of Selfies

Sally Mann

Sally Mann has spent her career examining those things closest to her. Her subjects—captured in arrestingly candid, luminous black-and-white images—have included her own young children, facing down the slings and arrows of childhood in Immediate Family (1992); the beloved Shenandoah Valley landscapes of her youth, revisited with an adult understanding of historical wounds in Deep South (2005); and her once strong-bodied husband of more than four decades, Larry, ravaged by muscular dystrophy in Proud Flesh (2009). Whatever her subject, Mann’s work is both lyrical and unsettling, evoking universal human themes of innocence, eroticism, and mortality.

In Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs (Little, Brown), Mann reflects on her life and work with the same unflinching vitality. Beginning with the family boxes stored in her attic, which she unpacks to uncover “a payload of Southern gothic”—fortunes made and lost, hidden love affairs, and a truly bizarre murder-suicide—Mann compellingly connects the past to her own clothing-averse and horses- and boys-obsessed childhood; her close bond with Gee-Gee, the African-American woman who helped raise her; and her decision to commit herself to a career in photography while she was a student at Bennington. “I existed in a welter of creativity,” she recalls, “sleepless, anxious, self-doubting, pressing for both perfection and impiety, like some ungodly cross between a hummingbird and a bulldozer.” But what makes Mann’s search for creative origins a contemporary classic is her frank reckoning with the downsides of exposure, from the firestorm that erupted over the photographs of her children (they also drew the attentions of a stalker), to her deeply reasoned thoughts on the transgressive, transcendent act of portraiture. “To be able to take my pictures, I have to look, all the time, at the people and places I care about,” she writes. “And I must do so with both warm ardor and cool appraisal, with the passions of both eye and heart, but in that ardent heart there must also be a splinter of ice.” By phone, I spoke with the 64-year-old artist about the fate of art photography in the age of selfies and Snapchat—and about the thinking behind her new series, her most challenging to date.

Writing a memoir like this also demands a commitment to really go there—to unpack those boxes in the attic. How did writing it compare to working on a photographic series?
It was excruciating. I didn’t even know I wanted to write this book. But in a certain sense, I was transported, it poured out of me. The way it came to me was almost the way pictures come to me. It was almost irrepressible at a certain point. I didn’t want to do it. I was scared to death of it. I didn’t expect to do it. I had no plans to write a memoir. Never in a million years would I have thought I’d be in this position. But once I got started, it’s though I just tapped into some hidden reservoir of experience and memory. Then, those boxes. Once I got into those boxes, I thought, This is too good to let go of.

One of those boxes that you unpack in the book is the ruckus over the images in Immediate Family. Looking at the photographs now—they’re positively Edenic—it’s hard to imagine anyone reading something exploitative in them, or even to remember what a tremendous firestorm they sparked.
Not for me.

Do you think our culture has changed a lot since then?
Yes, with the exception of the right wing, I think the culture is less puritanical. And I think, with the advent of the Internet, we all know about the existence of very real and serious forms of child exploitation.

The controversy really foreshadowed the kind of privacy issues we’re wrangling with today. It’s not just attitudes toward art and nudity that have changed; image culture has changed.
There’s no doubt about that. The whole nature of photography has changed with the advent of a camera in everybody’s hand. Yesterday, I was walking down the street in New York City, looked up and saw a man who was washing windows without a harness, and the whole street was lined with people with their cellphones up in the air, waiting for him to fall.

What do you make of that?
I don’t know. Is it any different than Henri Cartier-Bresson waiting for his decisive moment? I don’t know. Are the pictures getting better? That’s the real question.

You famously print your own work. Do you ever use a digital camera?
Just for snapshots. I don’t capture the image digitally, yet. I say “yet” because I’m not ruling it out. I have no animus toward digital, though I still pretty much take everything on a silver-based negative, either a web plate or just regular silver 8×10. But I’ve started messing a little bit with scanning the negative and then reworking it just slightly. I’m right on the horns of that dilemma, as it happens. I’ve got a big body of work that I’m either going to print big, 40×50, three-gallon buckets of chemistry and big huge sheets of paper and tons of time, or I’m going to send a scan to a digital printer. It’s a lot of work doing that kind of printing. It keeps you fit, I will say that.

Your new body of work is largely about race, a subject you devote several chapters of your book to. The memoir allowed you to revisit the past with an adult understanding, such as the life of your African-American nanny, Gee-Gee.
That section of the book is very dear to me.

The series, also inspired by Walt Whitman’s “I Sing the Body Electric,” is comprised of images of black men who came to your studio to be photographed.
Yes. There are about 40 of them. Six or seven appear in the book.

You’re very honest about the trade-off between appropriation and the possibility of capturing a transcendent moment—a moment of communion or empathy. I’m not sure many photographers are that honest.
It’s about the inevitability of making your subject vulnerable and exploiting them.

You’re one of the few female artists who look unflinchingly at men, whether it’s your husband or this current series. What is it that continues to draw you about the body?
Certainly, in the case of my husband, it was a documentary impulse because his body is so dramatically changed. I had such a powerful impulse to explore that photographically to maybe help me reckon with what’s happened to him. As I say in the book, it’s amazing that he’s even willing to let me do it. But in general, working with bodies is something that’s very difficult for me. In the pictures of the black men, it’s often more about a gesture, such as a hand reaching. Somehow to me, that’s one of the most poignant of the pictures because it expresses such tenderness. Those kinds of pictures, you can use the human form to express an overarching humanity.

Is this a change from how you approached taking pictures in the past?
Increasingly, the work I’m doing is in service to an idea rather than just to see what something looks like photographed. I’m trying to explore how I feel about something through photography. Right now, it’s this legacy of slavery idea which is still pretty inchoate. I’m trying to explore slavery from the point of view of freedom, which seems contradictory. What got me started was reading William Styron’s book, The Confessions of Nat Turner, which led me to begin photographing the Great Dismal Swamp. Freed slaves formed communities there, and no slaves catchers and their dogs would get there.

I started exploring the idea of what freedom offered to the slaves—what represented freedom and literally—physically—what offered it to them. Rivers, of course, could be both an avenue of ingress—every slave in America pretty much passed through the James River in Virginia—and a conduit for escape: If you got across the Susquehanna, you were in the free states; if you got across the Ohio River, you were in the free states. Also, you could hide in rivers. I’ve been photographing the Blackwater River, which is the river where Nat Turner lived. Then, religion. I’ve been photographing the little tiny clapboard churches just in my own little 50-square-mile radius. It’s a challenge, because we all know what represents slavery, but how do you represent freedom photographically?

Your children always intuitively understood the difference between reality and the image. Have any of them pursued photography?
Jessie is an artist herself—a painter, not a photographer—and she continued to model; she did a lot of work with a photographer named Len Prince. Right now she’s working on a PhD in neuroscience. Emmett aspires to be a writer and is working on a book. Virginia is an attorney here in New York City. She loves art history, though.

Will you write another book?
No, I don’t think so. I’m beginning to see that I have limited time, and that’s such a shock. It shouldn’t come as such a big surprise to me that I’m suddenly old, but it has, and I’m getting a little panicked about it. I don’t think I have time to do any more writing. If I want to deal with what’s left of my photographic life, I’m going to have to get on it.
