For Ryan O’Connell, Parker Posey and Popular Were ‘Everything’

Ryan O’Connell, the creator and star of Netflix’s Special, knows he’s something of a unicorn. “There was no gay disabled person working in Hollywood, so there was no reference point for anything that I was going to do,” O’Connell says of his culture-obsessed youth. Like many queer kids growing up in the ’90s, he found refuge in subversive indie cinema, Madonna, and winky shows like Popular.

Sophie Turner Ascends The Staircase to Join Toni Collette, Parker Posey and Juliette Binoche

HBO Max is clearly gunning for your now-empty Mare of Easttown minutes with the cast of their upcoming docudrama, The Staircase. According to Deadline, Game of Thrones’s Sophie Turner is just the latest star to join the streamer’s scripted TV adaptation, based on the 2004 documentary series of the same name from director Jean-Xavier de Lestrade about author Michael Peterson. Peterson has been accused of killing his wife Kathleen in 2001, though he claimed to have found her at the bottom of a (you guessed it) staircase in their home.

Parker Posey Joins Colin Firth and Toni Collette in Michael Peterson Limited Series ‘The Staircase’ at HBO Max

Parker Posey will star alongside Colin Firth, Toni Collette, Juliette Binoche and Rosemarie DeWitt in the HBO Max limited series “The Staircase.”. The eight-parter is based on the docuseries of the same name and various books and reports on the Michael Peterson (Firth) case. Peterson was accused of murdering his wife, Kathleen (Collette), in 2001. He claimed she died after falling down the stairs at their home after consuming alcohol and Valium, but police suspected he bludgeoned her to death and staged the scene to look like an accident. An autopsy revealed that Kathleen died from blows to the back of her head with a blunt object and other injuries. The docuseries was originally released in 2004, with creator Jean-Xavier de Lestrade updating with new information years later. Netflix released it as a 13-episode series in 2018.
