Exclusive: IFC Films and AMC+ have snapped up the U.S rights to Freegard from directors Adam Patterson and Declan Lawn.

‘Barry’ Star Sarah Goldberg on Sally’s Premiere Speech and Being Elsie Fisher’s Biggest Fan

‘Barry’ Star Sarah Goldberg on Sally’s Premiere Speech and Being Elsie Fisher’s Biggest Fan
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you haven’t watched “all the sauces,” the fourth episode of Season 3 of “Barry,” streaming now on HBO Max.

The first two seasons of Alec Berg and Bill Hader’s “Barry” followed the title character (played by Hader) as he barely maintained a double life between his hitman career and his newfound pursuit of acting. The character was able to keep these two worlds separate less because of any actions on his part than because of the self-absorption of the people he surrounded himself with — chief among them his love interest, Sally Reed. As played with gleefully neurotic, manic energy by Canadian actor Sarah Goldberg, Sally is convinced she was born for success, and is so single-mindedly focused on her career that she’s not paying nearly enough attention to spot any of the warning signs that Barry’s a killer.

Season 3, however, has

Barry Season 3 Episode 4 Review: All the Sauces

Barry Season 3 Episode 4 Review: All the Sauces
This Barry review contains spoilers.

Barry Season 3 Episode 4

After a mostly table-setting episode last week, Barry returns with “all the sauces,” a propulsive, fiercely funny installment. Moreso than any episode this season, “all the sauces” brings the laughs, even dipping into some of the absurdity that flavored last season’s “ronny/lily.” That said, the emphasis on the comedy doesn’t come at the expense of the plot; all of our main characters have their story moved forward, with many unexpected developments changing their trajectories. After this episode, it’s hard to predict where the second half of the season will lead, but if the past is any indication, we’re in very good hands.

After receiving a swift punch to the face last week and realizing that maybe reconciliation simply isn’t possible with Gene, Barry is back taking orders from No-Ho Hank. Barry is tasked with placing a

‘Barry’ Season 3: Bill Hader on Bad Junket Questions and How Reshoots Refined Episode 3

‘Barry’ Season 3: Bill Hader on Bad Junket Questions and How Reshoots Refined Episode 3
Bill Hader is back breaking down the latest episode of “Barry” Season 3 for TheWrap, and this time we’re talking about awkward junket experiences, reshoots and even a bit about the writing process for Season 4.

Episode 3, titled “ben mendelsohn,” is the episode that Hader says changed the most when the series went back for reshoots earlier this year. “All the reshoots that we did in February, which were like two weeks of reshoots, affected Episodes 1 through 6 and it was pretty extensive in some cases,” Hader told TheWrap. “Three was probably the biggest. And it was just like looking at everything cut together and being like, yeah, this doesn’t feel right.”

It was actually Hank’s (Anthony Carrigan) storyline that was significantly reworked for the episode. As originally shot, Hank came out to his Chechen gangster pals who told him they already knew and didn’t care, but once in the editing room,

Emmy Experts Typing: Is ‘Hacks’ about to attack the comedy categories?

Emmy Experts Typing: Is ‘Hacks’ about to attack the comedy categories?
Welcome to Emmy Experts Typing, a weekly column in which Gold Derby editors and Experts Joyce Eng and Christopher Rosen discuss the Emmy race — via Slack, of course. This week, we get serious about comedy as “Hacks” is set to return on May 13.

Christopher Rosen: Hello, Joyce! We’re ready to lol again and not just because our beloved “Minx” was renewed for its deserved second season. #MakeMinxHappen happened! Now we just need to get Jake Johnson nominated in the Best Comedy Actor category. But beyond “Minx,” which sadly likely remains a long shot in the comedy categories, this week felt a bit big on the laughter front. Vanity Fair unveiled a larger look at “Only Murders in the Building” Season 2, and it already feels like Shirley MacLaine will land among the Emmy nominees in the guest actress in a comedy series category next year. Amy Schumer is in play for that category too,

‘Barry’ Star Anthony Carrigan on NoHo Hank’s New Beau, His Prison Tattoos and How Season 3 ‘Goes Off the Rails’
As Season 3 of “Barry” finally returned last month, the walls were closing in on all of the show’s characters — even the always chipper NoHo Hank, played by Anthony Carrigan. On this episode of Variety’s Awards Circuit Podcast, we talk to “Barry” fan favorite Carrigan about the character, his new love interest with rival gangster Cristobal (Michael Irby), and how the show continues to balance light and dark.

But first, our Awards Circuit Podcast Roundtable discusses this year’s supporting actress categories in comedy, drama and limited series. Listen below!

“Barry” may be funnier than ever in Season 3, but it’s also more intense. That’s because Cousineau (Henry Winkler) has finally discovered the truth about Barry (Bill Hader). Barry is haphazardly trying to make it up to Cousineau, even after killing his acting teacher’s girlfriend. But Barry’s idea of a mea culpa is getting Cousineau a

On Season 3 Of Barry, Sally Reed Holds It All Together

On Season 3 Of Barry, Sally Reed Holds It All Together
Although HBO's "Barry" is slightly more of a comedy than other prestige dramas like "Breaking Bad," it does feature a similar dynamic: the main hero with the big, dark secret, and the love interest character he's hiding the secret from. It's not the exact same, though: Sally (Sarah Goldberg) doesn't know Barry (Bill Hader) before the start of the show, and she's a lot less suspicious of him throughout the first two seasons. Skyler (Anna Gunn) picked up on her husband's changes right away in "Breaking Bad," but season 2 of "Barry" comes and goes without Sally coming any closer to figuring things out.

‘Barry’ Season 3: Bill Hader on Barry’s Episode 2 Outburst and the Fallout

‘Barry’ Season 3: Bill Hader on Barry’s Episode 2 Outburst and the Fallout
Note: The following contains spoilers for “Barry” Season 3 Episode 2.

Bill Hader’s hitman-turned-actor Barry in the HBO series “Barry” has had his share of emotional outbursts over the course of the series, but in the second episode of Season 3 he explodes at girlfriend Sally (Sarah Goldberg) in a terrifying – and very public – way. It’s the fallout from the moment, both in terms of Sally’s reaction and in how Elsie Fischer’s character attempts to report the incident, that’s almost more unsettling.

Originally, the outburst was followed by a scene of Fischer’s character seeing Sally’s text to Barry asking if he’s mad at her and if he’s okay, underlining how she’s falling back into behavior from her past of dating abusive men. “We cut some of it together and showed it to some of the writers, and Duffy Boudreau and Emma Barrie, they

Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series

Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series
Last Year’s Winner: Hannah Waddingham, “Ted Lasso”

Still Eligible: Yes.

Hot Streak: “Schitt’s Creek” star Annie Murphy ended a run of actresses winning in this category in back-to-back two-year win streaks. Interestingly enough, while the “Ted Lasso” star certainly has a chance of bringing that back, two former winners from that run, Alex Borstein (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) and Kate McKinnon (“Saturday Night Live”) are also both in contention this year.

Notable Ineligible Series: No.

This article will be updated throughout the season, along with all our predictions, so make sure to keep checking IndieWire for the latest news from the 2022 Emmys race.

2022 Emmy Predictions: Best Comedy Supporting Actress
If 2021 Best Comedy Supporting Actress Emmy Awards winner Hannah Waddingham (“Ted Lasso”) gets the chance to defend her title this year, she may face the exact same slate of challengers as she did on her first outing. That group consisted of her costar, Juno Temple, as well as Hannah Einbinder (“Hacks”), Rosie Perez (“The Flight Attendant”), and “Saturday Night Live” cast members Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, and Cecily Strong.

McKinnon is one of 15 women who has conquered this category twice, having taken the prize in 2016 and 2017. Another, Alex Borstein, is also seeking a third victory at this year’s Emmys for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” after achieving her first two in 2018 and 2019.

Actresses who have won here in the past for other shows and could now be nominated for new ones include respective “Pushing Daisies” and “Cheers” alumnae Kristen Chenoweth (“Schmigadoon!”) and Bebe Neuwirth (“Julia”). Laurie Metcalf could also be

Bill Hader Breaks Down the ‘Barry’ Season 3 Premiere

Bill Hader Breaks Down the ‘Barry’ Season 3 Premiere
Warning: Spoilers follow below for “Barry” Season 3, Episode 1

It’s been almost exactly three years since the last episode of HBO’s “Barry” aired, but from the opening shot of Season 3, it’s clear the series hasn’t missed a beat. In fact, in true “Barry” fashion, the new season moves the story and characters forward in exciting and bold ways, setting the table for a season that’s darker than what came before, with even higher stakes.

The idea to end the first episode of Season 3, titled “forgiving Jeff,” with Barry (Bill Hader) and Gene Cousineau (Henry Winkler) confronting one another was Hader’s idea early on in the writers room. “I was like, I think the episode should end with Cousineau knowing and Barry knowing that Cousteau knows,” the star, co-creator, co-showrunner, writer and director of the HBO series told TheWrap in a recent interview.

‘Barry’ Season 2 Recap: The Refresher You Need Before Season 3
Warning: Major spoilers ahead for “Barry” Seasons 1 and 2

We last saw Barry Berkman in the midst of a rage blackout, gunning down criminals in pursuit of the man who betrayed his most terrible secret.

If the details are a little hazy, that might be because it’s been three years since the Emmy-winning series “Barry” was on air. Co-created by Alec Berg and Bill Hader – who also wrote and directed several episodes – the dramedy chronicles the life of Barry (Hader), a depressed veteran and hitman who discovers a passion for acting when he takes a class to get eyes on his latest mark. But extricating himself from the criminal world is harder than he realized, and the deeper he gets invested in his new life, the more complicated burying his past becomes.

‘Barry’: 5 Things You Need to Remember Before Season 3
The last time HBO’s “Barry” aired on TV, the final season of “Game of Thrones” was unfolding, Donald Trump was president of the U.S. and nobody on Earth had ever heard of “Covid-19.” It was a much simpler time!

It’s been nearly three years since Emmy winner Bill Hader last played Barry Berkman, everyone’s favorite part-time assassin and aspiring actor. Barry has successfully avoided arrest following several murders, while also growing as a thespian and dating fellow actor Sally (Sarah Goldberg), but Season 3 puts him in his most precarious position yet. Barry’s former handler, Monroe Fuches (Stephen Root), has fully turned against him. In the Season 2 finale, it’s revealed that Fuches told Barry’s acting coach, Gene M. Cousineau (Henry Winkler), that Barry killed Cousineau’s girlfriend, police officer Janice Moss (Paula Newsome), in the Season 1 finale.
