Roundtables are back! Tune in Monday, May 23rd for the premiere of The Hollywood Reporter’s 2016 Emmy Roundtable season, and every day after for new Roundtable videos. Who do you want to see on this season’s Roundtables? Tell us in the comments below!
Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything), Ethan Hawke (Boyhood), Timothy Spall (Mr. Turner), Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game) Channing Tatum (Foxcatcher) and Michael Keaton (Birdman) sit down with The Hollywood Reporter's Stephen Galloway to discuss their craft, their acclaimed performances in 2014 and more.
During the roundtable, Benedict Cumberbatch discusses castration vs. imprisonment in "The Imitation Game" and Eddie Redmayne discusses his characters personal and physical struggles in "The Theory of Everything."First-time, Oscar-nominee Channing Tatum shares with the actors how he almost turned down his role in "Foxcatcher" that caused his career to take a serious turn. Michael Keaton discusses the similarties between his role in "Birdman" and his role in the now Oscar-nominated "Spotlight." "Mr. Turner" actor Timothy Spall explains that the contradiction that made his role, as J.M.W Turner, an ecentric British painter, a barrier was the whole point of his character and praises the seven-time director of the film Mike Leigh, who he has worked with seven times over 33 years. Ethan Hawking, suprisingly, shares that there was nothing challenging about playing his role in "Boyhood" and says, "when you're are working with a world-class filmmaker [Richard Linklater, I don't ever feel I'm taking a risk, I feel safe."
