Chris Beachum, Managing Editor at Gold Derby has received the first 5 episodes of Hollywood to screen.  He had the following to say...

<I’ve now finished watching 5 episodes of “Hollywood,” so a couple of more thoughts…

Jim Parsons continues to own every scene he is in (and there are a lot of them; certainly no cameo). The 3rd episode is so far his best with the most range.

Holland Taylor has an incredible 5th episode (Patti LuPone had more early on but is still powerful).>

In their Awards Center they are predicting that he will receive an Emmy Nomination for this role.

Hollywood First Look: Jim Parsons and Darren Criss Bring Old-School Glamour to Ryan Murphy's Netflix Drama

Most of us are rocking hoodies and sweatpants right now, so it’s nice that Netflix is giving us a dose of old-fashioned Hollywood glamour.

Ryan Murphy’s new limited series Hollywood, set during Tinseltown’s Golden Age, debuts Friday, May 1, and the streamer is giving us a sneak peek at all the vintage drama (and fashions) with a slew of first-look photos. The seven-episode series “follows a group of aspiring actors and filmmakers in post-World War II Hollywood as they try to make it in Tinseltown — no matter the cost,” per the official description. “Each character offers a unique glimpse behind the gilded curtain of Hollywood’s Golden Age, spotlighting the unfair systems and biases across race, gender and sexuality that continue to this day.”

As usual, Murphy has assembled an all-star cast here, and the first-look photos give us an early glimpse at Jim Parsons, Darren Criss, Patti LuPone, Dylan McDermott, Holland Taylor, The Politician breakout star David Corenswet, BlacKkKlansman‘s Laura Harrier and more, all decked out in exquisitely tailored 1940s suits and gowns. <full article & more cast pictures in the link>

Jim started doing press (via video from home) for "Hollywood" this past week.  None of the videos have been posted yet, but Helen Hoehene of The Hollywood Foreign Press shared a screen grab of her interview.

From The Hollywood Reporter

Ryan Murphy's 'Hollywood': Meet the (Familiar) Cast of the Netflix Period Drama

Jim Parsons

PRIOR MURPHY CREDITS The Normal Heart, Boys in the Band (Broadway), Boys in the Band (Netflix)

HOLLYWOOD ROLE Henry Willson, Talent Agent

Parsons was deep into his second rendition of Boys in the Band, this time for Netflix, when Murphy approached him about Hollywood. The prolific producer had already decided Parsons, still best known to TV audiences as nerd-genius Sheldon on CBS' The Big Bang Theory, would be pitch perfect as Rock Hudson’s infamous talent agent, Henry Willson. He signed on, and quickly devoured Willson's bio. By its end, Parsons admits he'd developed a degree of empathy for the closeted rep, horrific behavior and all. "He ended up destitute because he'd used every resource he had to get his clients to the place that he wanted them to be and that they wanted to be — paying for clothes, paying for lessons, paying for teeth — and so as nasty and weird and slimy as he could be at times, I felt for him when I read he died penniless in a Styrofoam coffin," says Parsons, noting it was years before anyone pitched in to get him a tombstone with his name on it. Eager to get Willson "just right," Parsons would spend some two and a half hours in the makeup chair, as heavy prosthetics were applied. "I'd leave the makeup trailer feeling somewhat transformed and a little freer without even knowing it was happening," he says, adding of the part: "It ended up being one of the more powerful experiences of my life."

From Collider

Exclusive: Ryan Murphy Gives Updates on ‘The Boys in the Band’ and ‘A Chorus Line’

Firstly, The Boys in the Band, which Murphy is producing as a Netflix film. The play, written by the late Mart Crowley, was originally adapted to the screen by William Friedkin in 1970, and this new take is directed by Murphy collaborator Joe Mantello with stars like Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, Matt Bomer, and Andrew Rannells — all regular Murphy collaborators themselves. This version is, in fact, an adaptation of a stage revival that Mantello directed and Murphy produced. Murphy gave us this update on the film version, currently in post-production:

<snip>

"Then to be able to finish it and step away for a little bit, and then come back and film it, and make it even deeper and more cinematic, which it is, I think it’s really extraordinary. And we’re just finishing the edit of it now, I think a trailer will probably come out sometime in late summer. And there are several, I think, award-worthy actors and parts in that movie. I think we’re going to give it an award season launch sometime in the fall,  I think is the plan."
