Interview/Review: 'The Little Death' Helmer Josh Lawson Talks Ta
Every once in a while you come across a film that bucks the status quo. Not just in its delivery of a taboo subject or storyline, but in its desire to reach beyond cinematic categories to create something truly special. The unforgettable Australian import "The Little Death" (which is actually slang for an orgasm!) the brainchild of writer/director/actor Josh Lawson making his feature helming debut is one such hidden gem, a rare film that hits all the right naughty notes. Taking on the unconventional sex lives of a handful of loving couples, the film explores the good, bad and ugly of var...

'Agent X': How Jeff Hephner Became An Action Hero
So far, the best part of TNT's Agent X has been watching Jeff Hephner transform into an action hero. The former Chicago Fire and Boss actor is truly acting like a boss now, as he goes out and saves kidnapped teenagers and wrangles with Russian villains. But how did he get here?

At the recent New York Comic Con, Starpulse sat down with the star of Agent X to discuss how he stepped into the role of super Secret Service agent John Case and what it's been like for him to do all of the wild stunts that we saw in the first two episodes.

Being an action hero is "Just like you think it would be,"...

'The Librarians': Rebecca Romijn On The Direction Of Eve
With season two of TNT's The Librarians underway, our look into the adventure series continues with Rebecca Romijn, who sort of heads up the team as former NATO agent turned Guardian Eve Baird. Here's what Rebecca had to tell Starpulse at the recent New York Comic Con about where Eve's priorities lie and what she believes is the reason for the spin-off series' success.

Though by the end of season one the four Librarians-in-training had proven that they didn't need any more training, Eve's still going to be a Guardian to all four as season two develops, because that's what she's inclined to...

Audiences are a week away from discovering Amazon's The Man in the High Castle, and meeting the ruthless Inspector Kido, the head of the Japanese force stationed in a now-occupied San Francisco.

The actor behind Kido, Joel de la Fuente (Hemlock Grove), joined Starpulse at the recent New York Comic Con to discuss his character's position in the alternate society created in the series and his own perspective on what the show has to say.

"It's a huge undertaking," he said of the series, based on the novel of the same name by Philip K. Dick. "They got some historians together and said we need...

DJ Qualls Turned Down 'The Man In The High Castle'
DJ Qualls turns in an outstanding performance as Ed McCarthy in Amazon's The Man in the High Castle, so it's surprising to hear that the former Legit star actually passed on the series initially. He spoke about that and how High Castle's chilling alternate history wound up pushing him to a whole new level during our New York Comic Con interview previewing this fantastic show.

"I got asked to read for it several times and I turned it down. I think maybe four or five times," DJ revealed, but a surprise phone call convinced him to change his mind. "I didn't recognize the number...finally pick...

Country music artist Risa Binder has opened for James Taylor, toured with Ronnie Mislap, and had her debut EP, Nashville, produced by Luke Wooten. Binder’s energy is contagious, and her positive energy shines through in her new song, “Pretty.” I recently had the opportunity to speak with Binder about her musical background, “Pretty,” and what’s up next for her.

Can you talk about how you got your start in music?

I just kind of always wrote songs about boys I had crushes on [laughs] since I was like 7 or 8. I’d sit in my living room playing the piano and my parents would be like “Who’s tha...

Interview & Review: Shawnee Smith Talks 'Saw' For Starpulse
It wasn’t too long ago that Halloween time at the movies belonged to "Saw." Beginning as a small indie film by two aspiring Australian talents James "Furious 7" Wan and Leigh "Insidious 3" Whannell, "Saw" not only went on to spawn a whopping seven sequels, but it created a new horror icon in the form of Tobin Bell’s tortured soul character John "Jigsaw" Kramer. Well, now fans can revisit the traps and tropes of all things "Saw" as Lionsgate presents a brand-new, 3-part, 77 minute retrospective on the whole "Saw" experience titled "Game Changer: The Legacy of Saw" which is available exclus...
