Jackman Pitched Different Ending – Hugh Jackman has been tied to the Logan/Wolverine character for seventeen years. To say he has earned the right to voice his opinion is an understatement. So he pitched an idea to James Mangold about being open to different endings, so that they may find the right one. In his own words he said;
It was always floated that Logan would possibly die. I said, ‘Let’s be open, because it may be more powerful for him not to die. It’s more powerful that [Eastwood’s character in Unforgiven] Munny doesn’t die at the end. You assume he’s going to die, but by taking that final action and shooting everyone down, he embraces all the darkness he’s tried to put outside him. Now he’s got to live with it, and it’s almost more devastating.
Frank Oz on why Muppets TV Show Failed – Frank Oz is known as many characters in the world of Hollywood. From Miss Piggy to Yoda, Oz has been some of the most known characters ever. So when he speaks as to why a puppet-centric show failed, you should listen;
My brothers, my sisters, were in there [as the puppeteers]. They did the very best they could. But essentially, they were working with scripts that other people wrote. Those abilities, to riff and be smart enough, weren’t appreciated. It’s not that the puppeteers lacked talent, but that the single camera mockumentary style, made popular by “Modern Family” and the “Office,” took something away from the energy in the original “Muppet Show” and “Muppets Tonight.
I felt the show wasn’t true to the characters. There was a purity in each character that was vital. I felt that purity was being moved around to areas that didn’t feel right
I liked the show, but not for what it was, but for what it brought back; the Muppets. They’re iconic characters and I’m usually just happy when I get anything from them. But I don’t disagree with his opinions.
