Exclusive Interview With Adria Tennor

Here is our exclusive interview with actress Adria Tennor. In the interview you will get to know who the real Adria is and how she got her start in acting. We also talk to her about her role in the upcoming film D- Train and playing Joyce Darling in the hit series Mad Men. 


She keeps us up to date on her future project and what song she loves to sing while in her car.

We would like to thank Adria for taking the time to sit down and talk to us.

 1. So tell us, who is Adria Tennor?

I’m an actress and a writer and a restaurant owner. I’m from the suburbs of Detroit, but moved to New York City for college, where I studied directing. As a directing student, I had to take all the classes that the actors had to take PLUS my directing classes. I actually really wanted to be an actor, but they’d asked me to stop in the middle of my audition monologue because I was so bad, and they talked to me about my directing that I had done in high school and that’s how I was accepted to NYU. So I was happy to get to take the acting classes and that is really where I excelled. My first role in a film (and how I got my SAG card) was Hal Hartley’s Amateur in which I play a 12 yo boy. And with that debut, my body of work has been pretty eclectic and eccentric. I’ve played a Hooters waitress (Boy Meets World), a murderer (Trooper - a pilot with Mira Sorvino), a doomed-to-die cancer victim in the ‘60s (Mad Men) and an impish assistant in the Academy Award winning film The Artist - a silent movie set in the ‘20s - to name a few favorites!




1. Why did you want to become an actor? What inspired you?

My late grandmother took me to see Annie at the Fisher Theater in Detroit and I was hooked. I loved feeling so engaged and excited and empathetic to what was going on onstage. Growing up in school, I always found it so difficult to retain information and facts to which I had no emotional connection. When I was reading historical facts about the Civil War, the words just went in one eye and out the other, but when I got to watch Gone with the Wind I suddenly that event had life and meaning to me. I felt emotionally connected to this devastating change our country underwent, how it impacted the South, the African Americans living in our country and the whole economic system we had set up as a nation. I cared about it and so I understood it so much better. I decided that communicating with an audience by moving them emotionally was the most powerful way to relay thoughts and ideas and literally move our world to progress, and that’s what I set out to do. I love films like, Fair Game or 12 Years a Slave or Michael Clayton, films that expose the truth about the world and get people riled up about something that happened and could happen again. And hopefully effect a change, no matter how simple and small. Even an awareness can make the smallest, but most important shift in how we live our lives.


1. Can you tell us about your role in D- Train. Or too early to say?

Jack Black plays a guy named Dan who is on the planning committee for his high school reunion. Dan was a little under the radar in high school and has spent the better part of his adult life trying to be popular and cool even though high school is long over. The rsvp list for the reunion is looking a little slim, so Dan has an idea to lure the most popular guy in his graduating class (Marsden) to the reunion so everyone else will want to come, and he will be a hero. I play Wendy Fleur, the most popular girl in the class, and when I see Dan and his wife Stacy (Kathryn Hahn) at the reunion, I remember Stacy very well, but Dan, well, that’s another story....I’m witness to the insanely hilarious and horrifying events that unfold with Dan’s plan.

1. How was it working with big-guns Jack Black and James Marsden?

They were so terrific and generous and warm and so TALENTED! I actually know Kathryn Hahn from Los Angeles. She’s a regular at our two restaurants, barbrix and Cooks County so when we saw each other in the make up chair (we all got cast pretty last minute because indie film is that way) we were both so excited. So that made playing the scenes extra fun. Jack stepped right up to me and introduced himself and I told him I was playing Wendy and said, “I don’t know who you are.” I meant in the scene, my character doesn’t know who your character is, but he thought I, Adria didn’t know who he, Jack Black was, so he said very humbly, “I’m Jack Black. I’m playing Dan.” I laughed and said, “No, silly! My character doesn’t know who you are!” He looked askance and said in his funny voice, “Awkward.....” It was really fun. The script is a genius and brilliant and hilarious and outrageously awkward comedy by Andrew Mogel and Jarad Paul (Yes Man) and these two are also making their directorial debut.

1. Can you tell us about your time on Mad Men? Has that concluded for you?

I’m not allowed to talk about unaired shows/seasons so I can’t tell you if my time on Mad Men has concluded, but I can tell you that Mad Men is one of the credits I am most proud of on my resume. I was invited to audition for the show before any of the episodes had aired by Laura Schiff, the casting director. She had come to see me in my one-woman show, StripSearch, and become familiar with my work so when Matthew Weiner was looking for a group of actors to play Don & Betty Draper’s core group of friends, she thought of me. Weiner wanted to make sure that, even though we may not have a lot to do in that first episode we appear (1.3 Marriage of Figaro), we were all still very capable actors because he wanted to know he could write subsequent story lines that included us with more to do, and that we could pull it off. That is indeed what happened. I only had a few lines here and there in prior episodes, but in season 5, I got to come back as a guest lead with a really moving storyline involving Betty’s scare with cancer. That episode was actually directed by Jon Hamm, and he was terrific. Actors always make great directors. I really love the show, so it was really gratifying to be involved in a production with which I had so much admiration and respect. Matthew Weiner is a stickler for details, and that is what makes the show truly great. He’s very thorough and demanding in the best possible way. I pushes people to reach out of their comfort zone to be just a little bit greater than they might have been had they not been gently shoved into excellence.

1. Anything interesting you can tell us about working on the series?

Oops! I think I just did that! But here’s a sweet bit of info. The day we shot the scene where Betty and I have tea at the Roosevelt, we actually shot that in the Biltmore in downtown Los Angeles. At lunch, Mari Weiss (who played Cecilia, the Fortuneteller) and I went through the lunch line and found a table to eat together. We had bonded as guest cast often does because we’re usually the only ones who don’t know anyone else on set because we’re guests! That day Jon Hamm went through the lunch line with the rest of the crew and made a point of joining Mari and I for lunch. We both thought that was pretty cool of him. I think he enjoyed talking shop with a couple of down-to-earth, work-a-day actors, and he preferred hanging out with us to having someone bring him lunch in his trailer.

1. A curve ball : what is your go-to song while driving in the car. The song you just can’t stop signing?

I love Jason Isbell and I think his newest album Southeastern, is genius and brilliant. You’re going to think I’m crazy, but one of the things I usually need to do in the car is prep for whatever audition I’m on my way to. One of the ways I like to prepare is by making sure I’m in touch with my feelings, which I definitely need to be in order to act! So, my go-to song is this gorgeous, intense ballad he wrote about a friend’s bout with cancer called Elephant. I sing it really loudly and fully until I can’t sing it anymore because I’m totally choking up. I know, I’m a weirdo.

1. What or where should we be on the look out for you? Any upcoming projects?

Last summer I got a little frustrated with my career as an actor. It’s so hard to have so little control of your own fate, waiting for an audition and waiting for someone to pick you to be in their thing can be so difficult and dispiriting. I decided I wanted to learn how to make my own thing! So I called a friend I’d made while I was doing red carpet stuff for The Artist, Doug Blake. He produced The Sessions with John Hawkes and Helen Hunt, and was on his way to Baton Rouge to produce John Schneider’s (Bo Duke from The Dukes of Hazzard) writing and directorial debut, Smothered. I asked if I could go along and shadow him so I could learn about producing, and he said yes. But once I got there, I didn’t do a whole lot of shadowing. They just threw me into the mix and I ended up with an associate producer credit on the film, which stars five horror icons playing themselves, only in Smothered it is the horror icons who are being haunted. I also have a couple scenes in the movie, which just premiere to rave reviews at The Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, NC. Doug is working on setting up distribution for the film now so hopefully it won’t be long now until it gets a wide release.

Using what I learned in Baton Rouge, and guided by David Dwiggins, the Co-Producer and First AD I met on Smothered, I also just completed production on a short film that I wrote, directed and produced called Cracked, starring Marguerite Moreau (Queen of the Damned, Grey’s Anatomy) and Talyan Wright (Two and a Half Men). I’m about to start post-production - editing, sound mixing, color correcting, etc. And hopefully, it will be in festivals before the year ends. Short films need love and support so if your readers would like to follow our progress they can do so here:

Flash Gordon Film On It's Way

"Star Trek 3" scribes J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay will work off a treatment by George Nolfi to write the script.

Twentieth Century Fox has closed a deal to pick up the screen rights to the pulp comic strip hero in a package that has John Davis producing and J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, the up-and-coming scribes who just worked on Star Trek 3, on board to write the script.

The deal is a long time coming for Davis, who spent more than a year nailing down the rights from the Hearst Corporation. The veteran producer, whose credits include Chronicle and the upcoming Man from U.N.C.L.E. among dozens of others, used his discretionary fund to get the rights. He also hired George Nolfi, who wrote Bourne Ultimatum, to pen a treatment and brought in Payne and McKay.

Gordon is the hero first created in 1934 by iconic artist Alex Raymond who, along with the lovely Dale Arden and mad scientist Hans Zasrkov, ends up on the planet Mongo fighting its tyrannical ruler, Ming the Merciless.

The popular strip spawned three Buster Crabbe serials and in 1980 came the cheesy, colorful Flash Gordon movie, which had a soundtrack by Queen and cast that included Timothy Dalton, Max von Sydow and Chaim Topol. (Sam Jones played Gordon, who original backstory of being a polo player was modernized to be a football player.)

Hollywood has been trying make a new movie and possible a franchise for ages, with Gordon’s rights set up at Universal, Mandalay and, more recently, Sony where Neal Moritz tried to launch the rocket to Mongo.

Fox exec Matt Reilly identified the project early and brought it into the studio; he will now oversee the project. (Reilly is a former Warner Bros. exec who worked on the Lego Movie at its inception.)
Before nabbing Star Trek 3, Payne and McKay previously wrote the script adapting Boilerplate, the graphic novel by husband-and-wife comics team Paul Guinan and Anina Bennett, for J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot production company. They also wrote Mirconauts, a feature based on the 1970s toyline that Abrams is producing.

Could Danny Boyle & Leonardo DiCaprio Team Up To Make Steve Jobs Movie

Moving fast to replace David Fincher on its highly anticipated Steve Jobs movie, Sony Pictures is in talks with Danny Boyle to direct the biopic of the late Apple Computer co-founder. Boyle is said to have approached Leonardo DiCaprio to star.


As The Hollywood Reporter revealed earlier this month, Fincher fell out of the project due to his aggressive demands for compensation and control. Fincher had wanted Christian Bale for the title role, though the actor was not signed.

The film is to be produced by Scott Rudin and written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network), based on the best-selling biography of Jobs by Walter Isaacson.

The Jobs film could mark a reteaming of DiCaprio and Boyle, the star and director, respectively, of 2000's The Beach. Neither has previously worked with Sorkin.

The departure of Fincher dashed hopes of reuniting the team behind Social Network, which grossed $225 million worldwide in 2010.

Designed to entertain guests of all ages, “Super Silly Fun Land” includes more than 80 different water-play features and a nearby dry zone to climb, jump and slide. A Minion-themed “Silly Swirly Fun Ride” soars and spins guests around aboard a fleet of uniquely styled ride vehicles. The memorable “Super Silly Space Killer” arcade game where Agnes “won” her lovable stuffed unicorn also can be found here, giving guests a chance to try and beat the odds to win Minion game prizes and their own stuffed unicorn.

Together, “Despicable Me Minion Mayhem” and “Super Silly Fun Land” represent a distinct, immersive environment within the theme park, reimagined to fully engage guests in the world of Gru and his Minions

THE PROTECTOR 2: Reddit AMA With RZA Tomorrow

Join us tomorrow afternoon for a Reddit AMA with RZA!

Where: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/
When: 11:30am-1:00pm PST/2:30pm-4:00pm EST

THE PROTECTOR 2 is now available on iTunes/OnDemand and in theaters next Friday, May 2.



Directed by Prachya Pinkaew
Starring Tony Jaa, RZA, Mum Jokmok, Marrese Crump, Jija Yanin Wismitanan, Ratha Pho-ngam, Kazu Patric Tang, Kalp Hongratanaporn and David Ismalone

Boss Suchart is the influential owner of a major elephant camp. When he was murdered in his own home – the killer delivered three fatal blows on his body – all evidence points to KHAM (Tony Jaa), who was present at the crime scene and was seen with the victim the moment before he died. Kham is forced to run as the police launch a pursuit. Meanwhile, the twin nieces of Boss Suchart (Jija Yanin Wismitanan and Teerada Kittisiriprasert) are out for revenge. But luck is on Kham’s side when he runs into Sergeant MARK (Mum Jokmok), an Interpol agent sent to Thailand on a secret mission.

As Kham is hunted by several parties, he’s also desperately searching for KHON, his elephant, whose disappearance is involved with Boss Suchart’s death. In another twist, Kham is drawn into an underground fighting ring run by LC (RZA), a crime lord who’s obsessed with collecting top-class martial artists from around the world. LC’s fighters are branded only by numbers, such as the lethal, beautiful TWENTY (Ratha Pho-ngam) and the diabolical NO.2 (Marrese Crump). These fighters are ordered to defeat and capture Kham for a special mission that LC has in mind.

A sequel of the global smash-hit “Tom Yam Goong” (or “The Protector”), TYG2-3D is an extreme fight movie, an endlessly intense, nerve-racking film full of fists, elbows, kicks and daredevil stunt scenes and amazingly choreographed fighting moves that will pump hot blood through the body of all action fans. All in the in-your-face 3D spectacle!

IFC Films "RAZE" On DVD May 20th

IT'S A BATTLE TO THE DEATH, WITH EVERY WOMAN FOR HERSELF, IN A TAKE-NO-PRISONERS ACTION EPIC ABOUT MODERN FEMALE GLADIATORS.


The Genre-Busting Breakout Hit Has Something Action and Horror Fans Have Never Seen Before, and It Explodes Onto DVD on May 20, 2014



"Amazing. An incredible action film. I absolutely loved it." - Evan Saathoff, Badass Digest

"A sweaty, queasy, bruising experience - and a superbly crafted film."
- Inkoo Kang, Los Angeles Times



At the unforgiving intersection of Chained Heat, TV's Spartacus and Orange Is the New Black stands RAZE, a viscerally thrilling new action-horror film where it's every woman for herself. The brutal shocker, director Josh C. Waller's "self-assured debut" (Los Angeles Times), comes to DVD from IFC Films and MPI Media Group on May 20, 2014, with an SRP of $24.98.

After she is drugged and abducted, Jamie (Rachel Nichols, Star Trek, Continuum) awakens to find herself in a concrete bunker where she meets fellow abductee Sabrina (stuntwoman-turned-action star Zoe Bell, Death Proof, Kill Bill, Oblivion). Before long the two women discover that they are in a modern-day coliseum, where they and 48 other women have been selected to fight to the death. If they refuse, their loved ones will be killed.

Co-starring genre favorites Doug Jones (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy) and Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks) as the sadistic organizers of the battles, RAZE is director Josh C. Waller's (McCanick) a no-holds-barred assault on the senses, featuring some of the most brutal fist-to-the-face combat ever put on film. In this contest, may the best woman win.

Extensive bonus features on the DVD include filmmaker commentary, cast and crew interviews, a behind-the-scenes featurette, deleted scenes, extended fight scenes, a gag reel and more.

Neil Genzlinger of The New York Times said, "There is food for thought here about the subjugation and exploitation of women, the limits of psychological and physical endurance, and more." "As violent as it is, RAZE is refreshing," wrote Shannon M. Houston of Paste magazine. Brian Orndorf of Blu-ray.com called the film "strong stuff, but also briskly paced and interested in the psychological ramifications of such unrelenting brutality." Matt Zoller Seitz of RogerEbert.com praised, "If RAZE had been released in 1975, Quentin Tarantino would never shut up about it."
