The Belgravia actress has been tapped to lead the pilot of CBS’ gender-swapped Early Edition reboot, our sister site Deadline reports. For the uninitiated, the original Early Edition starred a pre-Friday Night Lights Kyle Chandler as Gary Hobson, a man who mysteriously received each Chicago Sun-Times newspaper the day before it was published, and used the knowledge he received to prevent terrible events from taking place. The new Early Edition hails from Hawaii Five-0 and Zoo scribe Melissa Glenn, and original series EPs DeVon Franklin...
Kyle Chandler on 'Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber,' Venture Capitalist Bill Gurley, and the 'Early Edition' Reboot
From creators Brian Koppelman and David Levien (Billions) and based on a true story, the Showtime series Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber follows Travis Kalanick (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), who started one of Silicon Valley’s most successful companies in Uber, but who was also ultimately kicked out of his own boardroom. The upstart transportation company rocked the business world as Travis’ win-at-all-costs approach fueled its meteoric rise into a multi-billion dollar machine while also being responsible for its downfall.
When Kyle Chandler found out he was going to play investment guru Bill Gurley opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s take on former Uber CEO Travis Kalanick in Showtime’s Super Pumped (which airs Sundays), his immediate impulse was to call the man up and pick his brain about his life and experiences funding the rideshare behemoth’s rise. But then he thought better. As Chandler confirmed when we spoke ahead of yesterday’s series premiere, he feels a great sense of responsibility when playing a real person and leans on his research and the source material (Mike Isaac’s book of the same name, which he raves about) to find the character, but over-prepping might create something more like an impression and less like a performance. And in this case, there was room for interpretation in how Gurley moved in the lion cage, chair in hand.
Watch: Joseph Gordon-Levitt on Learning About His "Super Pumped" Character. In a world where information is at our fingerprints, Kyle Chandler and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are asking how much we really know about the technology we use every day. It's this question that drew the actors to the Showtime's upcoming anthology...
“Friday Night Lights” was a hit show on NBC for five seasons. One of its stars, Kyle Chandler who played Coach Eric Taylor, was there from the beginning. Indeed, Coach Taylor was an iconic character for a number of years on the program. Folks became enamored with his leadership on the program along with his quotes that served as life lessons to his players and those watching at home. However, the show ended long ago now, but “Friday Night Lights” star Kyle Chandler talked about working with Michael B. Jordan and Jesse Plemons who have both gone on to Hollywood stardom.
Early Edition star Kyle Chandler revealed CBS announcement about a female-led reboot of the beloved series made him laugh. During an exclusive interview for Showtime’s Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber with Collider's Christina Radish, Chandler also pondered what the show taught him, and how Early Edition affected his career.
Showtime has released a new trailer for the upcoming first installment in a new anthology series. "Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber" will premiere on Sunday, February 27, 2022 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, and it's all about the rise and fall of Travis Kalanick, the founder of Uber. The ride-sharing service may have changed the way we travel, but it had a whole lot of baggage that came along with it. The first trailer gave off some strong "The Wolf of Wall Street" vibes and not in a good way. I was very worried that Kalanick would be glorified the way Jordan Belfort was in that film. (They gave the man a cameo. I know people who were hurt in that scandal and it's not okay.)
