  5. The Mary Sue Interview: Murder of a Cat‘s Fran Kranz (Plus Exclusive Clip!)

    Kranz goes from zero to hero in this quirky detective parody.

    Fran Kranz has been a favorite of “nerds” since he first partnered with Joss Whedon in Dollhouse, Cabin in the Woods, and Much Ado About Nothing. Now, the rising star is in the midst of the Broadway revival of the classic American play You Can’t Take It With You as Tony, the film role that made Jimmy Stewart a star.

  10. The Mary Sue Interview: A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night Director Ana Lily Amirpour & Star Sheila Vand

    Talking Iranian lady vampire flicks is always the best.

    A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is one of the coolest movies of the year. Written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour, the film stars Sheila Vand as a chador-wearing vampire preying on the men of Bad City in a mash-up of western and vampire film, which is also surprisingly funny and romantic. Vand and Amirpour were in New York this week for the release of the film, and talked about their mysterious character, dangerous love, and the benefits of working with a cat on set.
