Q&As With Robin Wright & Corey Stoll

Mid-September's Emmy Awards may seem still a shot away but buzz for the "House of Cards" cast is already swelling up. Have a look at these Q&As with Peter Russo alias Corey Stoll, and the fantastic Claire Underwood — aka Forrest Gump's girlfriend.

  1. Fincher-ish:

    'Wired' interview with Fincher's go-to-genius-guy for trailers Mark Woollen (also creator of the greatest trailer of the last ten years, for 'The Tree of Life') ~


    Also, bijou case study of his work on 'TSN' (scroll to foot of page)~


    1. Very cool. I've stumbled upon this article / interview with Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos. It shows that Fincher made a lot of money for Netflix:

      "In the quarter that House of Cards premiered, Netflix’s subscriber base jumped more than 2 million to 29.2 million domestic streamers (36 million members worldwide), bigger than HBO's reported 28.7 million subs. The growth trajectory, especially in the aftermath of Netflix CEO Reed Hastings’ abandoned plan to split Netflix into a streaming entity and a DVD service called Qwikster, has led its stock price to jump 345 percent in nine months to $239.55 on May 20 on revenue of $1.02 billion for the first three months of the year."

      ...and there's this quote that I just love:

      "The two things that got everyone’s attention about the House of Cards deal was the two-season commitment and David Fincher. After David Fincher directs a series for Netflix, no one else can say, “Well, I’m not going to direct a series for the Internet.”"
