Zachary Quinto & Ashleigh Cummings Cast In AMC Horror Series “NOS4A2” Based On The Joe Hill Novel

AMC has cast Emmy-nominated actor and producer Zachary Quinto (“Star Trek,” “American Horror Story”) and rising star Ashleigh Cummings (“The Goldfinch,” “Hounds of Love”) in the lead roles for its new supernatural horror series “NOS4A2” (working title). The network also announced Emmy-nominated director Kari Skogland (“The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Sons of Liberty”) will direct the first two episodes of the series based on Joe Hill’s bestselling novel of the same name. Production began this week in Rhode Island. 

The 10 one-hour episodes are slated to premiere in 2019.

Quinto will play Charlie Manx, a seductive immortal who feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – an icy, twisted Christmas village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Manx finds his whole world threatened when a young woman in New England (Cummings) discovers she has a dangerous gift.

Cummings will play Vic McQueen, a young, working-class artist whose creativity awakens a supernatural ability to track Manx (Quinto). What Vic lacks in social confidence, she makes up for in courage, humor, and tough-as-nails grit.  She strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.

Executive producer and showrunner, Jami O’Brien said, “As a huge fan of Joe Hill’s rich, imaginative, and exciting book, I am over the moon to be working with such a phenomenal cast and creative team on this special project.”

“NOS4A2” is produced by AMC Studios in association with Tornante Television. The series is executive produced by Joe Hill, Jami O’Brien (“Fear The Walking Dead,” “Hell On Wheels”), who created the show for television and will serve as showrunner, and Lauren Corrao, Co-President of Tornante Television. The cast also includes the previously announced Olafur Darri Olafsson (“Lady Dynamite”) as Bing Partridge, Virginia Kull (“The Looming Tower”) as Linda McQueen, Ebon Moss-Bachrach (“The Punisher”) as Chris McQueen and Jahkara Smith (aka Sailor J) as Maggie Leigh.

Michelle Obama Announces 10-City Tour To Launch Memoir, ‘Becoming’

Michelle Obama is proud and excited about her forthcoming memoir, Becoming — but as the Nov. 13 release date draws nearer, the former first lady admits she’s also “a little frightened” about how “candid and honest and open” she is in the book.

“Over this time that I’ve been out of the White House, I’ve had time to think and reflect for the first time in a long time. I spent some time really thinking about the people, the stories and the experiences that have shaped me and helped me become the person I am today,” Obama, 54, explains.

“I am proud of what I’ve created. I’m proud because it is candid, it’s honest, it is totally and utterly me. So I’m also a little frightened because it is so candid and honest and open,” she adds.

That said, Obama is eager to share her book with the world — and to see how it empowers readers.

“I’m hoping that, because of this book, others feel the power of their own voice and their own story,” Obama says. “Not in the big moments, but in the little things, the small moments, the bumps, the bruises, the highs and the lows — because those are the things that make us uniquely who we are.”

On Wednesday, Obama also announced an upcoming 10-city tour to promote her book:

Tuesday, November 13, Chicago, United Center

Thursday, November 15, Los Angeles, The Forum 

Saturday, November 17, Washington DC, Capital One Arena

Saturday, November 24, Boston, TD Garden

Thursday, November 29, Philadelphia, Wells Fargo Center

Saturday, December 1, Brooklyn, Barclays Center

Tuesday, December 11, Detroit, Little Caesars Arena

Thursday, December 13, Denver, Pepsi Center Arena

Friday, December 14, San Jose, SAP Center

Monday, December 17, Dallas, American Airlines Center

Tickets for the event will be sold through Ticketmaster’s “verified fan” system, with 10 percent of the seats in each venue given away free to fans and local community members who might not be able to afford tickets. For the first stop on Nov. 13, in Obama’s hometown of Chicago, this means 1,300 tickets will be given away to community members. Individual ticket prices start as low as $29.50, and signed book bundles and VIP tickets will be available as well.

The events will feature candid conversations between Obama and a selection of to-be-announced moderators — that she says will include some famous friends and family members — about the experiences that have shaped her life, from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago, to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time as the first African-American first lady in U.S. history.

Designed by Marc Newson, this luxury edition offers unrestricted access to hundreds of photographs from the Ferrari archives, and from private collectors, to reveal the full story behind the Cavallino Rampante. Featuring a complete appendix of the company’s victories, this massive tome is elevated by a sculpture evocative of the 12-cylinder engine, topping off a production unparalleled in scale.

Few are the men and brands that have come to define a century. For seven decades and counting, the Italian powerhouse founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1947 has made an indelible red mark on popular culture and enraptured fans and collectors across the globe.

Synonymous with beauty, excellence, and unmatched desirability, the Cavallino Rampante lives on as the driving force in high-performance Gran Turismo, the conqueror of impossible challenges.

A production unparalleled in its scale, it features exclusive content from the Ferrari archives and private collections around the world, bringing together hundreds of unseen photographs and documents to reveal the unique story behind Ferrari’s victories, its protagonists, and its legacy.

Limited to 1,947 signed and numbered copies, the handcrafted leather-bound and hand-stitched Collector’s Edition is enclosed in a Ferrari motor–inspired case designed by Marc Newson. Made of cast aluminum, the chrome has been sandblasted with powder to preserve the metal’s natural feel, while the top of the case has been finished using Ferrari’s own red varnish, the same as that used on their engines.

This Art Edition (No. 1–250) is elevated by a sculpture evocative of the 12-cylinder engine in hand-bent, flared chromed steel, also by Newson. Made of chromed steel, the bookstand’s legs were joined together using tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding, a process that produces stronger, high-quality welds, typical in the automotive industry.

Art Edition (No. 1–250), with a sculptural bookstand by Marc Newson, each signed by Sergio Marchionne, John Elkann, and Piero Ferrari.

Brad Meltzer’s Official Book Tour Dates Announced For For ‘I Am Neil Armstrong’

Brad Meltzer will be touring in September to promote his new book, I Am Neil Armstrong.

Neil Armstrong’s journey to the moon is the focus of the fifteenth picture book in the New York Times bestselling series of biographies about heroes.

Neil Armstrong is the first person to ever walk on the moon. But before he took those famous steps, he was a boy who loved airplanes. He learned how to fly, and when the space race began, he became a new kind of pilot: an astronaut. Now he could fly all the way to outer space. With bravery and patience, Neil and his team worked hard and, after many small steps, they took a giant leap together. They landed their lunar module on the moon.

This friendly, fun biography series focuses on the traits that made our heroes great–the traits that kids can aspire to in order to live heroically themselves.

As always, if you want a signed book, please call Books & Books at 305-442-4408. If you call before the event, Brad can personalize it and they’ll ship it to you. For those who attend any event, as always, you can bring whatever you want for Brad to sign: thrillers, comics, kids books, etc. Or bring a friend. Brad signs friends too.

Walt Disney’s Nine Old Men: Masters of Animation

Celebrate the legacy of Disney’s core group of animators, with Walt Disney’s Nine Old Men: Masters of Animation, featuring original sketches from classic films such as Pinocchio, Bambi, and Peter Pan—including an exclusive look at the animators’ lives, with personal caricatures and fine artwork.

In the mid-1930s, President Franklin D. Roosevelt coined the term “Nine Old Men” to describe the nine justices of the Supreme Court, who had seemingly lost touch with the ever-changing times. In jest, Walt Disney borrowed the term several years later to refer to his core team of animators—Les Clark, Marc Davis, Ollie Johnston, Milt Kahl, Ward Kimball, Eric Larson, John Lounsbery, Wolfgang Reitherman, and Frank Thomas—even though they were neither old nor out of touch, and in fact would together make history with their cutting-edge contributions to the world of animation.

Produced in conjunction with The Walt Disney Family Museum’s 2018 exhibition of the same name, Walt Disney’s Nine Old Men: Masters of Animation features an array of fascinating artwork and family mementos from each of these accomplished gentlemen, such as sketchbooks, caricatures, and snapshots, as well as original art from the classic films Pinocchio (1940), Bambi (1942), Peter Pan (1953), Lady and the Tramp (1955), and Sleeping Beauty (1959). Personal art, paintings, sculptures, flip-books, and hundreds of original animation drawings are all faithfully presented, alongside pencil tests and final color scenes that showcase their genius.

In conducting his extensive research on the Nine Old Men, curator and celebrated producer Don Hahn sat down with each of the animators’ families for in-depth discussions, unearthing details about the unique personalities of the men behind iconic Disney characters and films. The result of this collaboration is a spectacular collection of personal artifacts and ephemera that have never been seen by the public, all of which help tell each animator’s individual story and reveal how they collectively elevated animation to an art form.

After roughly 40 years of mentorship, the Nine Old Men were all named Disney Legends in 1989 in recognition of their lasting contributions, not only to The Walt Disney Studios, but to animation as a whole. This book offers a deep dive into their esteemed work and life stories—and a rich offering of the legacy they helped shape.

The 160 page hardcover: 160 pages will be released on October 16, 2018.

Justin Timberlake To Release His First Book, Hindsight & All the Things I Can’t See In Front of Me

Justin Timberlake revealed the cover for Hindsight & All the Things I Can’t See In Front of Me, his first written book with scribe Sandra Bark, on social media Friday.

“Guys, I have some news!” he wrote. “I’ve been working on this for a while now and I am happy to finally give you a first look at my first book, #Hindsight. I’m looking forward to sharing these pictures and stories with you. It’s coming out October 30th!”

According to publisher HarperCollins, Hindsight includes a “collection of anecdotes, reflections, and observations on his life and work,” as well as “hundreds of candid images from his personal archives that range from his early years to the present day, in locations around the world, both on and off the stage.”

“Justin discusses many aspects of his childhood, including his very early love of music and the inspiration behind many of his hit songs and albums,” the official Hindsight description reads. “He talks about his songwriting process, offering the back story to many of his hits. He muses on his collaborations with other artists and directors, sharing the details of many performances in concert, TV comedy, and film. He also reflects on who he is, examining what makes him tick, speaking candidly about fatherhood, family, close relationships, struggles, and his search to find an inner calm and strength.”
