–Anne Hathaway‘s new film Armageddon Time may not be getting good reviews, but at least it got her back on the promo circuit.

-In his delightful Vanity Fair profile, Succession’s Matthew Macfadyen was asked about costar Jeremy Strong‘s intense acting techniques, and said he hates the implication that actors who don’t stay in character “aren’t as invested, or as involved, as someone who’s weeping in a corner.” He added, “I find it slightly aggravating because—it makes [the show] about one thing, and it’s an ensemble piece. You think of J. Smith-Cameron and Alan Ruck, who are fucking extraordinary actors. [Strong] is not the main event…I look at Jeremy—that’s Kendall Roy, and so my heart starts banging a bit faster. Because I’ve made the imaginative leap. Because that’s my job. It’s not about what I’m feeling or what state I’ve got myself in before, or any of that. That’s not to say that’s wrong. That’s just not useful.”
